Michael's is one of your old time fine dining restaurants. The food is very good, yet basic and simplistic and more than one can eat. It is an old style dining restaurant. We were there about 15 years ago and decided to go again for old time sake to celebrate a wedding anniversary, and it felt like we stepped back... More

Their Ceasar Salad hand made table side is worth the trip,. The boys had the prime rib and the girls had the scallops , all dishes were well presented and delicious ! The only comment from the girls was "this is so rich" I find that the pricing is comparable to many road houses ,but what you get is upscale... More

We had a party of 8 and everyone was very happy with the food - from the catch of the day - pickerel, to liver and onions, to chicken crepes, etc....the food was delicious, the portions were perfect, there was an excellent selection (we were...

On all fronts we had a terrific dinner at Michael's which consisted of an offering of prime rib and one of chicken. In the case of both meals the serving size, quality, presentation and taste was exceptional. The caesar salad, which is prepared at ones table, is just the best with abundance and flavour. The facility itself is situation along... More

It was disappointing. We started with 2 Caesar Salad's done tableside. We appreciate the garlic and even the incorporated anchovy that a true Caesar has but the salad's were so STRONG and they were not "nice" creamy, they were "SOAKED" creamy. I don't know if people reading this will understand what I mean. They were so overpowering and saturated with... More

This is a quaint restaurant in the heart of London right on the Thames River. It is a very formal setting with professional staff and good service. The kitchen must be staffed with top notch chefs etc. because they prepare excellent food. My only negative is that the decor is a little dated. On the whole this is a good... More

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!
