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

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
