After looking for a good local restaurant on this site, we settled on Michael's in Auburn, New York. We looked at the overall reviews and a the first couple of reviews. Had we looked more carefully, we would have noticed that the attached menu is not the menu for this restaurant. The menu for the restaurant attached here is for... More

This place is such a quaint and delicious restaurant. I have never been disappointed with a meal from here. The veal parm is the best that I have ever tasted!! I would highly recommend this restaurant, especially for a romantic night out as the atmosphere is very nice.

The owner of this restaurant needs to learn about customer service. He did not honor a gift certificate that was outdated and after talking with him he did offer to accept it at 25% of its value. I will never step foot in his restaurant and also not recommend people go there either. The food is not that good and... More

I grew up in Auburn but moved away decades ago and have travelled widely throughout the world. I have eaten at Michael's a number of times, and am always impressed by the quality and creativity of the cuisine. Duffy, the owner and chef, is a CIA trained professional who keeps the atmosphere simple, friendly, and welcoming. Prices are good, quantities... More

My boyfriend and I visited this establishment about 7 times and had great experiences every time. Duffy the chef and owner is very friendly and is more than willing to make sure you have a great experience and also will cook anything that's not on the menu. In response to 4-15 comment; do you really expect a business to honor... More

Some of the best I've had anywhere. To top it off, the portions are very liberal. My wife loves the sweet Italian sausage, but I prefer the meatballs because they are tasty, tender, and flavorful. The marinara sauce they use is amazingly wonderful. However, they are only open for dinner and closed on Mondays.

We went to Michaels for a night out with another couple. We had a gift certificate that we were using. When we went to pay the bill we were told it was not valid. The reason was is that it expired. Rather than pursue it then , I called during the week and spoke with the owner who told me... More

We enjoyed a nice dining experience on a Saturday night. Although we did have reservations it was not busy, and there were some empty tables at times. It is a very small, quaint place. We began with a bottle of Riesling from California ($30). For an appetizer we chose the Calamari that has a spicy sauce and banana peppers. Not... More

My husband and I have been all over looking for great food for many years. Who knew we would find it right in our backyard. Since discovering Michael's we rarely venture out to other restaurants because when we do we are always disappointed. We have been spoiled by the amazing dishes Duffy {the owner} puts out. I have yet to... More

Read the reviews, made the reservation, went there to try the prime rib. They only serve prime rib on Saturdays!. We went on Sunday... Ordered something else. Not one of the 3 of us were thrilled with our entree. Plus, the booths are ridiculously small. My son-in-law is 6'4'' and my daughter is only 5'2" but the 2 of them... More
