If you're going to dine at Restaurant Michael, you're going to have a prix fixe culinary experience that is worthy of a Michelin star. The service is fantastic and the French-style food is amazing. Portions are not huge but you will not be hungry for sure after eating a three- or more course meal here. The food is beautifully presented,... More

We have gone here a couple of times for special occasions. It is very upscale, a little pricey, but the food is excellent. I'm not completely enamored with French cooking, but if you are, you should check it out

We went for our anniversary. Michael is in a non-descript location in Winnetka, Illinois, between a convenience store and a car dealer. But our dining experience was beyond description. It is so rare when the price and quality meet at the same point, but it does here. Choose from a three or four course prix fixe; decent selection, the wine... More

A truly lovely experience -- artistically presented, delicious food!!! Service was wonderful--not "over the top"-too chummy, which we prefer. Would highly recommend to friends!

Spent a recent Saturday at Restaurant Michael in Winnetka, a group of 4 ladies there to get a tour of the kitchen, then sit down for the meal of our dreams. What a wonderful evening! The service friendly, professional, attentive. The food, perfection! Thank you!

Chef Michael Lachowitz put together a 10-course, tasting menu that was a gastronomic wonder in every respect. It was a delightful presentation in a charming, restrained setting. The opening course of Tiny Lyonnaise & Burgundy Poached Quail Egg was a mini Lyonnaise salad that came together when the egg was broken into its nest of stringed potatoes. The next course... More

We went to a private group dining experience at Michael. It was a multi course classical French experience. Service, food, wine, and ambiance, the works. Based on this meal, I will make a point of traveling here again to enjoy a "regular" meal.

I had dinner in that restaurant many times. The food is very tasty and most importantly very innovative. The chief always invent new meals according to the seasons ans to his desires. Very cozy atmosphere and the service is perfect. When will come the Michelin star?
