I love this place. Everytime I'm in London, I wish to come here. Nice armosphere, excellent service, and the food is just superb, very delicious. It's a must. An experience of delicious flavors in an elegant surrounding, yet good for families and casual meetings. It's a bit on the pricey side, but it's totally worth it. And they sing live... More

My wife and I had dinner here before going to the Neil Diamond concert. The atmosphere was wonderful as some restaurants have the tables too close together and this raises the noise level. We could enjoy this setting and still have a conversation. We had the Caesar salad and Chateaubriand for two. It was prepared at table side and was... More

It's been a few months since my wife and I visited Michaels last. I must say, other than a few new menu items, nothing has changed. The atmosphere,service and food was excellent as always. I has the prime rib and it was cooked to perfection. My wife's salmon was just what she expected. Thanks for a great dinner date Michaels.

My husband and I each ordered medium filet mignons and both steaks were rare-blue. If your paying $37 you expect your steak done right. French onion soup was bland. Was not impressed with the food and wouldn't go back.

Thus is by far the best setvice i have ever received. The spinach dip was beyond amazing. All the good was fantastic. And the serving sizes were larger then i was expecting. I would definately return for future occasions, and reccomend it for somewhere special!

We have been to Michael's numerous times and always find it very comfortable and very good. I always have a beef course of some kind and have never been disappointed. Everything is done to perfection. My wife usually varies her meals from beef, chicken or a fish main course. Deserts if any room is left for them are excellent. We... More

This restaurant was simply amazing. Right from the start with the friendly service and the amazing venue. Then the food was just amazing, you can tell it was all fresh local ingredients just as advertised and made with love. Then the desert was also homemade and delicious. With live piano in the background made the night even more enjoyable. Also... More

Michaels has been my favourite since it opened in 83. I had not been for a long time and wanted to share it with some special friends on a recent visit to London. I emailed to arrange things and ask for a river table - the gm was quick to respond and I was thrilled to learn being gluten free... More
