Hadn't been to Chez Mike's for about a year. When we dined there last night, we were reminded of how talented the chef is there and that we need to frequent here more often. Mike really knows how to prepare fish. We had a pan-seared halibut and a pan-seared cod. The halibut had a beet couli and delicious grilled asparagas.... More

Great food, outstanding service, and, ok, there's only so much you can do with a square space in a shopping plaza, but the room didn’t detract from the meal. We were lucky that a table opened up just as we arrived at 7:30 on a Wednesday evening. Two us choose their prix fixe menu. The potato soup was fine and... More

You just know you're going to get a good meal with every visit. Don't be afraid of visiting alone...the bar area is welcoming and they have an excellent burger. Sign up for their email notifications and they remember your birthday every year....nice touch.

This is another small strip mall restaurant with outstanding food. The food itself is probably some of the best in the whole Albany area. Service, wine list and other incidentals are also excellent.

My wife and I have been eating at Chez Mike since the day it opened, over six years ago--and this is my first (and only) review. Mike's menus are not pages long--but he features 4 different menus depending on the season--plus some really terrific and sometimes odd daily specials. My wife claims that he is the best with seafood--which he... More

Chez Mike is my wife and my go to restaurant. We often run over for a quick dinner. The entire staff is very efficient and friendly. The food is different and great. Mike has carved out a great little restaurant dressed as a strip mall. Give it a try you will come back often just like my wife and I.

My fiancé and I went to Chez Mike for our early Valentine's Day. We made a reservation and were seated immediately in a booth. The ambiance of the restaurant is amazing. So homey but classic. The beer drafts had an amazing selection of local brews. The server was attentive and helpful on such a busy night. We ordered the calamari... More

We had not been here in some time so we were concerned that it might have changed. It did but not in a bad way. There were now three course price fixed specials for Tuesdays and Wednesdays that offered good values and the same excellent food. There service was concerned and friendly and the wine selections were varied and well... More
