My husband and I have gone to Michael's many times to celebrate special occasions. Recently we went for an anniversary dinner. We found the prices to be high and the service to be low. The servers seemed to really try, but I ordered something fairly simple: filet mignon. no potato, please substitute a salad instead. Medium rare. No dripping blood,... More

This is not a place for loud or casual evenings. It's refined and friendly, and the food is top end. Of course you pay for what you get, but the value for money is excellent!

The old surroundings are still there, along with the piano playing mellow songs, side table prep and cooking, the ceasar salad is just mouth watering, love their shrimp cocktails, but most of all love the Service, first class all the way!!!!

Good food and excellent service. The beef cheeks were very delicious. All the food ordered at our table for six met. And exceeded our expectations for taste, quality and uniqueness. Would not be surprised to see us there again the nest time we are in London.

My husband and son surprised me for Mother's Day which also included my birthday, by taking me to Michael's on the Thames. From the beginning of our evening, the service was wonderful. We shared a bottle of wine and an appetizer, escargot which was yummy. The tableside preparation of Caesar's salad was entertaining! It was the best Caesar's salad we... More

Had a really enjoyable meal here as a couple. Staff were very professional, food was very good and reasonably priced. Lovely atmosphere. The ceasar salad is quite an experience, recommended! My only suggestion would be that some of the staff could be a little less formal and more personable. That's not a complaint, just personal preference.

We were totally amazed and enjoyed the Delicious dinner we had. The Chateaubriand “Bouquetiere for 2 and the table side ceasar Salad both done at our table side. The colors of the Fantastic Variety and all the Flavors bursting from the Vegetables was the Best meal Ever. As the Menu describes it............. Canadian Beef Tenderloin served in the grand traditional... More

It's exactly what you imagine when you hear 'fine dining'. The servers are professional and attentive and the food is good. Classic meals and the portions are slightly bigger than most fine dining restaurants. They do have great table side service that adds a bit more to the atmosphere.
