We were a party of 8 who don't live in the East Greenbush area, on our way home from a show in Chatham. What a treat! The setting is relaxing, the food is superb. Our group ordered several different salads, appetizers and mains and we were all thrilled with our choices--so much so that we varied from our norm, and... More

I loved everything about this restaurant and all of the food. It was wonderful. Not cheap, but worth the price. Yum.

One word to sum up the food at Chez Mike's is amazing. My wife and I eat there regularly and have had a delicious dish every time. The service is also top notch. They also have top shelf alcohol there, if you want a good bourbon you will not be disappointed.

Don't pay attention to the outside of this restaurant, it's in a strip mall, yes, and it looks pretty unassuming from the outside. You won't be sorry if you walk in and have lunch or dinner here. The specials are always imaginative, the menu changes seasonally, and the food is impeccable. Make reservations, this place is usually packed on the... More

I met a friend I hadn't seen in ages for a leisurely Wednesday evening dinner because Chez Mike is one of her favorite restaurants. Located in a strip mall in an unpretentious storefront location, this establishment is a real surprise to newcomers, because it's upscale all the way and a very popular destination for locals who don't mind paying more...

We love Chez Mike's. We go there often and always have a wonderful dining experience. When it's crowded it gets a bit noisy, but the food is always delicious and well presented. The servers are friendly and very helpful.

As a seasoned cook who sometimes gets tired of hearing "what's for dinner?" Chez Mike's is a good respite for my husband and me. Good solid food and a good value. Husband had the special of the day. - Lamb Ragout. Tasty. I had the calamari appetizer which was also good, but could have used a bit more seasoning. Since... More

Love the food here. Hard to believe a quality restaurant such as this is located in a strip mall. A standard menu with daily specials include adult beverages and dessert. The waitress, Bridget, was the best and often made the experience better. I am sad to learn she no longer works there. A loss.

I ordered the grilled escarole salad but it had a smokey taste. There was no mention of a smoked cheese or flavor in the menu description. I am not a fan so did not enjoy it but my companion did. I had the pasta special which was excellent. I heard they have an olive butter and bread they serve which... More

Why is this restaurant in a strip mall? Might be better someplace else. Pre dinner drinks were excellent and the barmaid was fantastic. They had a Manager's special drink that was white sangria that was excellent. My wife ordered the braised short ribs. They looked good but she thought they were a bit fatty. My Cornmeal Crusted Pork Loin was... More
