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.

This place has been in operation for more than ten years. We decided to eat at this restaurant and we were very pleased. Their Bang shrimp appetizer was delicious. Their wine list was a little limited considering that Rochester is the home of Constellation, one of the largest distributors of wine in the world, hope that they improve their wine... More

With family and visiting the area. Family from the area and had been to restaurant several times. Sorry, but I was just not that impressed. Small and cramped. Chicken dish had too much lemon and the penne was too underdone. The restaurant will be closed during July 4 for renovations, so maybe some of the Golf clutter will go away.... More

We live across the street from Michael's and love to take quick getaways as a couple over there for dinner, where we disappear from the world (and our teenager) by sinking into one of their plush circular booths against the wall. Everything we have ever ordered has been outstanding here. I keep waiting for them to name a special and... More

This is my favorite regular restaurant. The food is consistently excellent, the bar area is very comfortable, classy and inviting. The dining area is lovely, a mix of exquisite with a touch of homey. Check out the different pairs of vintage salt and pepper shakers on each table, how cute! The food is a little pricey, but you get what... More

Good service and everything cooked fresh however some of the dishes were very disappointing. The Friday fish fry was undercooked however in order to compensate they had over fried the breadcrumbs. I suspect the fish had been poorly thawed from frozen. Items off the kids menu were decidedly not appealing to kids and pasta dishes were disappointing. Shrimp starter was... More
