My wife and I went here for our very first wedding anniversary and the place was packed but they saved us a romantic table for two by the fireplace. The Cesar Salad for two is made for you right at your table and is by far the best you will ever have. For the main course, my wife had the... More

You cannot go wrong if you go to MOTT. Be prepared to spend an eveing there because it's not fast food. Perfect for good conversation and enjoying an evening with someone. Try the specials. There is usually some meat or special that is waaayout of the ordinary. (I think I had bison?) It was delicious. A little pricey but worth... More

A gem of London! The style is elegant and there is a fireplace on one side of the restaurant. The atmosphere is so good. I order a french onion soup and the daily fish as entree. They made the plate delicately, and the fish is fresh and tasty. It is a great place for celebration!

Micheal's is known as a London landmark and I guess like Mt Rushmore is shall never change. Walking through the front doors is like passing through a portal to the past, from the decor to the menu to the wait staff this is truly a place that's stuck in the past. While the food wasn't bad it certainly wasn't anything... More

Thank you for your review. We are a London landmark, in business 31 years this month, not many businesses can say that while still being successful. However, not quite like Mount Rushmore. We read by your review that you visited in April, 2013 and didn't post until March, 2014. If you hadn't waited so long to write the review, your... More

I honestly love their chicken crepe, it is delicious and so yummy... Their service is beyond top notch. The staff is so great in letting you know their specials along with what each item on the menu has to offer along with a wine selection(s).. Always friendly and professional.
