Always the Best !

We try and stop in Michael's every month for the last five years or so. This week I had the "Michaels Valley Shrimp" dish and my wife had the baked haddock dish. Both were wonderful and the waitress was wonderful as they usually are. We started with an order of the "bang bang shrimp" and Caesar... read more

We dine at Michaels quite often and our meals are always delicious! My favorite dish is the baked haddock, it is the best piece of fish I eat anywhere here in the city. The remodeling of the place is warm and inviting and they pour a great drink! Their signature grilled romaine lettuce salad is perfection and a real treat... More

My wife and I went to Michael's Valley Grill a couple of weeks ago and had an amazing time. I typically do not write reviews however our experience was so nice i had to comment on it. I would first like to say that our waitress Karen was fun as well as professional. She was very knowledgeable with the menu... More

First the good: The waitress was pleasant. The dining room is very nice (although just a touch crowded by perhaps one table too many) The Not So Good: We were really excited to try the food, but were disappointed to discover it was just so-so. Nothing about it was memorable, and it was lacking any "wow" flavor. Nothing we haven't... More

Late night jazz and treats at Michael's Valley Grill. Great music and late night limited menu. Drinks were great. We ordered chicken wings and fries, excellent, can not wait to come back for dinner.

We are 3 couples that get together for each birthday and any other reason we think appropriate. This meal was our Christmas time to celebrate each other and the friendship we share. We have had very good meals at Michaels Valley Grill in the past and even though none of us live in the Penfield area we like this restaurant... More

I believe the real draw to this restaurant is the 2 for 1 drinks until 6:30. Nice atmosphere but otherwise big prices for very mediocre and very pricey food. No one at our table had an outstanding meal for the $20+ price. A few shrimp and bland rice does not make me want to come back here regardless of the... More

Simply put, Michael's Valley Grill is excellent. The menu is varied, the meals are well-prepared and delicious, and the service is excellent. What else could you expect from a restaurant? It's not cheap but it definitiely proves that you get what you pay for. I work for a company that has offices and plants world-wide and we have used Michael's... More

Have eaten here several times and the food has always been very good. Professional servers and the bar staff knows how to make a vodka martini. It's never watered down. Nice job on the remodel.
