My wife and I have been there a couple of times. The food and service were good, but I believe is over priced. Friends that have been there for dinner felt the same way.

Our waitress was pleasant and helpful. The atmosphere was lovely. The food was less than desirable. I can think of a dozen restaurants where the food was better quality.What it lacked in food it made up in price , extremely expensive for the quality of the food.

First of all the remodeling for this restaurant done last year is terrific and the atmosphere remains great. Mike is a class guy and treats his customers right. Last evening I had possibly the best pork chop I've ever had. Cooked to perfection, juicy, well seasoned and the chipolte sauce with it made it even better. The grilled romaine was... More

Had a great dinner at Michael's and enjoyed some good Jazz in the bargain. My chicken Milanese was very tasty and quite tender. My wife had Grilled romaine salad with grilled chicken. What came to our table was an enormous wedge of grilled romaine in a presentation that she had not seen before. She loved it.

Here's a place where you really want frequent. Recently remodeled and the look is modern yet classic. The bar area is cozy. Weekend band and great food make this one of the nicer places to go if you want to relax and enjoy good for and atmosphere

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 Salads which we loved.... 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
