What you except from fine dining.

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.

We went for a special occasion (and told them it was one) but they kept hovering and telling us that there was another reservation on our table after us. SERIOUSLY???? That is your problem NOT MINE. Food was okay .. horribly overpriced and waitress was obnoxious. Avoid at all costs ... heck go to Taco Bell as they will treat... More

We are sorry you had a bad experience at Michael's. We do allow for two hours per reservation, and find that this is usually more than adequate for the vast majority of our clientele. If you do require more than two hours we encourage you to let us know at the time of your booking, and we will do everything... More

Who knew how great Mac and Cheese with Lobster could be. It was a great lunch portion that had great flavour. I would recommend this to anyone willing to try something different.

We used to go here regularly. Greek salad has always been good. Vegetables getting mushier. Staff is experienced and attentive. Need Jack's singing.

Michael's is a favorite for the owners of our company so they selected this location for and 8-person dinner one evening. The wine selection was very good. The appetizers, especially the escargot, were quite tasty and of reasonable size. Every meal delivered to our table was thoroughly enjoyed - lamb, veal, beef. etc. It is a very nice place to...

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.
