Amazing!!

Michael's Valley Grill is always an excellent choice - the food and service are beyond reproach. It got a little noisy the night we were here last month, but that was in part to the time of our reservation - a little later next time. Keep up the great work Priscilla and Michael!!

The restaurant situated at a small plaza is well known for many years. They did recently a remodelling of the restaurant. Our daily special were really tasty. It is not really necessary to have a starter and main course (quite filling). For my birthday they made me some homemade mini donuts. Very thoughtful and sweet! My attention was on the... More

I have been here multiple times and it is a favorite spot for my family to go to. It can get a little expensive but the food has been amazing every time I have visited. I would 100% recommend.

Saw Tom F's review. Could not disagree more. Ordered the short rib, sirloin, brisket burger. It was perfect. Best I have ever had.

Fast friendly service and knowledgeable waiter. Great selection of wines by the Glass and bottle. The fresh Halibut Fish Special was outstanding! The BBQ spare ribs were fall off the bone tender. Great Dinner Salad and overall dining experience. I would definitely go there again.

I love a good burger. This was way beyond a good burger! All I can say is try it for yourselves. And, as always, wonderful, friendly service. Michael's never disappoints!

There were 4 of us that went out to dinner and everyone's meal was good. The prices were slightly above average but it was worth it.

Friend and I shared the charcoal calamari which was sautéed in garlic oil, so good then the chicken piccata with lemon and capers, Too Die for! The other friend had the pinko breaded chicken with Parmesan and tomato sauce which was also very good. Generous portions good... More

We went last Saturday with another couple whose anniversary is a week before ours to celebrate both. This resturant had been on my list to try for a long time, and I'm very glad I did. The exterior is deceiving (it is in a strip mall) but once inside, we were all impressed with the high ceilings, lighting, and ambience.... More
