Limited menu and overpriced. Can't believe it's still in business. My husband refuses to go there. Small portions.

The best restaurant on this side of the river. My dining companion and I each had the bourbon cocktail special and enjoyed it with the warm crusty bread with olive butter spread. We shared the chilled asparagus with salmon appetizer and it was perfect. The asparagus was tender, and leaves were cleaned which was nice, most places do not properly... More

Without a doubt or favorite local restaurant. Mike's food is always cooked to perfection and his pairing of items with the main course always compliment each other. All of the staff is friendly and most accommodating to guests. The menu changes frequently and there is always a special each day. I can honestly say that I have never had a... More

The menu at Chez Mike changes often enough to keep diners interested in coming back to try something new. The food is well prepared and the service has always been friendly and helpful when we've gone. There is plenty of variety offered and they do try to use as much local ingredients as possible which is great. My only concern... More

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
