Great foor and service

Chez Mike had excellent reviews on Trip Advisor so we gave it a try. There were three of us. We shared a calamari and a carpasie salad. Then I had striped bass, my wife had filet and my sister, short ribs. Everything was excellent and the service was outstanding. I finished with a bread pudding... read more

This is a one-time rating based on a single meal that was not up to Chez Mike's usual standards. That's bound to happen in any restaurant once in a while. Overall, the place is worth 5 stars and I sincerely hope it will maintain that high rating. My meal last night was the problem. Not my wife's; the leftovers from... More

It doesn't get better than this in our East Greenbush location. Chez Mike blows away any locally available option for an enjoyable couples dinner. The restaurant was full and buzzing with a pleasant vibe at 7:30 on a Thursday night. Diners in coats and ties, cargo shorts and T shirts, dresses and jeans were all represented, so this restaurant is... More

Love their specialty drink menu. Ordered the Old Fashioned and it was perfectly delicious. Drinks were served with warm,tender, crusty bread with olive butter.Dining companion ordered the blueberry mojito and it was very good also, a little on the sweet side. The bread made a great companion to the BLT salad we shared. It was very tasty, just the right... More

Well actually we try to get here more often then that. We are never disappointed with the meals. Usually I will try one of the daily specials, but today we both went for Calamari and the Calves Liver. Both dishes can be ruined by over cooking, but here they were done to perfection. The draft beers are regional and very... More

Had a wonderful evening at Chez Mike with Good friends Looks nothing from the outside, but don't let that put you off. Inside nicely finished with a friendly atmosphere Service was good, and our waiter Tim had some recommendations from the menu, but was not at all pushy or scripted Menu with just enough choice Food very good Nice wines...

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

Chez Mike is an amazing restaurant located in a surprising location...a small strip mall in East Greenbush. This chef is extremely accomplished, and offers a unique array of menu items. He offers seasonal menus with fresh ingredients, great cocktails, and great desserts. I have to say that I LOVE his burger and fries...the best I've ever had. Great food for... More

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
