We were looking for a new Italian type restaurant after the last two visits to our old place were very disappointing. Someone recommended Michael's Back Door to us so we thought we'd give it a go. Made a reservation for 7. Had to wait about ten minutes to get seated - no big deal. They'd taken a walk in earlier.... More

What an amazing dinner we had with my Beau 2 wks ago! Michael's Back Door Restaurant is a little, hidden gem closeby. We both had the same thing as our wonderful waiter recommended: Pasta Pescatore..a pure taste explosion in your mouth...beautiful portion of various seafood cooked to perfect consistency with the right amount of spices and herbs to absolutely satisfy...

Michael's has been around for many years and I have always enjoyed my dinners there. The food and service are consistently good and the ambiance is great. Disappointed they took the escargot off the menu since that was something I actually would get cravings for! Was last there a few weeks ago and the 6 of us ordered pastas, risotto,... More

The good is very good. The ambiance is lovely. The setting and guests appeared romantic and mature. We loved all of this. We visited this past valentine's day. The problem is the service. We had made a reservation and still waited to be seated, not because they were cleaning our table, but because they were seating a few people in... More

Salads very good. Main courses good except for soggy sphagetti as a requested side dish to veal scallopini. Service was friendly but slow. I wonder if the restaurant was under-staffed for a Sunday evening?

I went to Michaels Back door during the Taste of Clarkson event for both their dinner and lunch menu. Excellent value! Three courses, each one better than the one before. The service was great. The staff were very welcoming , however I needed to ask for water (no big deal!) I am definitely going to go back and try their... More

The most consistent and dependable restaurant in the western part of the GTA. Michaels has superb food, 5 star service and a wonderful night out including drinks with your sweetheart will likely leave you with change from $100. Even though we reside in Oakville Michaels always draws us back. We had the Roasted Cornish Hen with vegetables and the House... More
