We were here for Valentine's dinner, ordered the chateaubriand for two. It is supposed to be table side service. All it was is a flame briefly reheating food, previously cooked, on a platter. There were plenty of vegetables, simply cooked with no seasoning. The meat was good but not a lot there. Potato wedges were quite nice. We also ordered... More

I attended a business dinner meeting at Michael's earlier this month and was very impressed with the ambiance as well as the food. There is adequate parking right outside, you are greeted at the front door, the staff are friendly and helpful. Washrooms are clean. Service for the 20 of us was expertly timed so there were no long waits... More

Michael's on the Thames has been around for years and we have visited there many times, although not recently. They were part of the Londonlicious promotion in 2017 so we went with another couple to take advantage of the price offer of $30 (or $40) for a three course meal. The beverage selections include local as well as national and... More

Excellent food and good size portions. The table side prepared Caesar Salad was one of the best Caesar Salads that I have had in a long time. The Chateaubriand that was also done tableside was great too but I think it would have been a better experience if the meal had been all prepared table side vs. just heating it... More

We were very disappointed with the service. The waitress came by once before my step dad arrived and asked us a quick can I get you anything while you... More

We are from out of town but I have spent a lot of time in the London area. I was excited when my husband booked the restaurant for dinner as I always wanted try Michael's.

We had a great celebratory dinner for four. Each of us ordered a different main course and were uniformly delighted. Unfortunately, the wine list is a disappointment; given the proximity to the Niagara and Pelee regions in particular, the Canadian wine selection (particularly reds) is weak to say the least. The impact, for those of us who wish to introduce... More
