I have dined at this restaurant a number of times, and have always had a great experience. Most recently, my partner and I came to celebrate our anniversary - What a wonderful experience! The team of staff were on point, and all of the "little details" were well executed. Amazing food (try the Filet Mignon!!), all of the service staff... More

October 26, 2016 I took my daughter to dinner and we had such a beautiful dining experience. We were treated with very friendly staff that made us feel right at home. The food was absolutely fantastic (no complaints at all). The Caesar salad is a must. The restaurant's prices are up there....BUT...what you receive in return is great service, scrumptious... More

Michael's must be strictly for the wealthy white hair set in London as an average price for an entrée is $25, way beyond what a student can afford unless the parents are treating. Their 90's dated menu included all popular and favourite dishes of large portion served with potatoes and seasonal vegetables. I had the Jackson's fresh fish market Pickerel... More

Just prior to the Elton John Concert at Budweiser Gardens, we made a Reservation at Michael on the Thames. The staff were so courteous, the food was excellent, done to perfection. We had Veal and Steak, perfect meals. Also,had their excellent at the Table Caesar Salad. Would highly recommend a visit to this lovely restaurant.

We went to Michaels for our anniversary. I had never been, but my husband had many years ago. We r from sarnia area but often eat out in London as there are better restaurants there. This place is iconic so we decided to go. Needless to say , we wish we hadn't. The decor needs a complete refresh. I felt... More

We have been to Michael's On the Thames a few times and are never disappointed! The food is absolutely the best...and a work of art! Just love the Caesar Salad that is prepared tableside - generous portions all around. We enjoyed Lamb, Wild Salmon, Atlantic Salmon, Seafood Linguine, and much more! We were a table of 8, and the service... More

Heard great reviews if food and service, so expectations were high. Service was excellent but was average at best. Great location, with good parking. This could be a great destination, if only the food and menu were upgraded.

We've dined at this restaurant as a family a few times over the years, when we've come in to visit from out of town. At best, our experience has been mediocre: table service has been ok and the food usually bland but passable. ( Although the Caesar Salad made to order at your table is fantastic) This past visit, however,... More
