A pleasant surprise!

My family and I dined at Chez Mike last week on a recommendation from a family member. I was a little skeptical given the strip mall location but he assured me the food was terrific. We could not have been more pleased. The menu was well thought out and the service was friendly and attentive. We... read more

We have been dining at Chez Mike's at least once a week since its inception! Don't let the fact that it is in a stripe mall deter you! A trip to East Greenbush to dine at Chez Mike is worth the trip from anywhere! Is a warm, inviting, friendly place with exceptional food! The staff is welcoming, very efficient, and... More

We were looking for a place to have dinner on our way through the Albany area, and Chez Mike was the first place that appeared on our search. It was a little hard to find, being just a storefont in a strip mall, but WOW were we happy we did. After enjoying the drink special of a spiced pear Collins,... More

I have eaten in the dining room several times when I visit the area and we love the bar menu, specialty drinks and the food. This review is for the Thanksgiving catered dinner. The turkey and sides we prepared wonderfully and the directions to prepare the food were perfect. The turkey was cut beautifully and was left moist and juicy.... More

This gem is tucked into a strip mall but it is anything but ordinary. The food is excellent, the service is always wonderful.They get that some people have dietary restrictions and have offerings to accommodate. They also offer a fixed menu at a bargain rate on Tues and Wed night. Sometimes the dining room is chilly in the colder months... More

Location, location and location are said to be the secrets to a successful restaurant. Well quality food and service also go a long way when the location is not perfect. There is a local following of this place and once you experience it you will see why.

First time stopped for lunch as a couple. We had the Garlic Soup [Special], Lamb Burger, Oyster PoBoy, and Key Lime Pie. All were great! Second time with another couple for dinner. 2 house salads, kale salad, and house pate plate were very nice starters. Two Smoked Beef Sandwiches, and a Burger were very good but the liver was completely... More

The food is really very good. Love the olive butter and bread. The menu changes seasonally. I love the brick chicken, definitely my favorite on the menu. Good specials, friendly, efficient and knowledgable wait staff, cozy atmosphere. Should probably have reservations on Friday and Saturday nights unless you go very early or very late.

We have dined here several times and the food quality/choices are upscale and excellent. They have some unusual dishes that other restaurants don't always have and they also have daily specials. It's obvious that the ingredients used are always fresh and seasonal and orders appear to be cooked to order and fresh. The salads are done with assorted greens with... More
