Tucked away in the Hannaford Plaza in East Greenbush NY is Chef Mike. How can a mall restaurant be so good? Because the owner/chef Mike Cohen is a perfectionist! We had our first meal there last night, and it won't be the last. My husband and I ordered the Eggplant Lasagna....it was melt-in-the-mouth delicious and the sauce was creamy not... More

Creative bistro atmosphere is found inside a strip mall storefront. A very polished young waiter was attuned enough to suggest a menu variation when I mentioned that I like calamari, but not the breaded preparation on the menu. He suggested the chef would be okay with sautéing it in garlic, oil, & wine. I said what about a side of... More

Small place in a strip mall, but do miss this place for a great dinner. Small but worth a call ahead if you would like to make a reservation, but I was on business, and ate at the bar. It was fine. Great specials - Great service - I had the spinach salad as an appetizer for $8 thought it... More

We have eaten at Chez Mike a number of times. It is in the most unlikely of locations, but very convenient at the Hannaford Plaza where Route 4 ends at Columbia Turnpike. The restaurant isn't large, but generally has seats available. Still, we always make reservations. Seating is comfortable at tables or booths. The service is unobtrusive and efficient. The... More

Don't judge a book by the cover. Chez Mike is in a non-descript strip center and you would not notice it unless you were looking. We found it on Trip Advisor and went based on the recommendations. The staff is extremely nice and attentive. Food is good and they offer specials as well as a 3 course meal on select... More

We drove around East Greenbush a while looking for highly rated Trip Advisor spots. A couple were closer to the hotel, but both were closed (on a Friday night, no less) so we hit the #1 spot and found a lively place in a strip mall with an interesting menu. We did not have a reservation, but they got us... More

Chef/owner Michael Cohen is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America & has worked in some fine restaurants such as the Four Seasons Hotel in New York City; it shows. This restaurant, located in a strip mall, has a casual neighborhood feel but the food is high-end. Many of the items on his menu have an interesting twist. For... More

Excellent food and very accomodating, they even have gluten free bread on request. It's very hard to fault this restaurant.

My husband and I have dined at Chez Mike many times over the past few years. And we have never been disappointed! The hostess and waitstaff are very welcoming, personable and efficient. The menu changes with the seasons, and luckily they keep some signature dishes all year. Start with the Caesar Salad or Steamed Littlenecks with Chorizo. You're going to... More
