We stopped for dinner after a long day antiquing at Madison Bouckville, and were seated quickly in the dining room without a reservation at 5pm on a Friday. We both ordered the filet mignon with mashed red potatoes and summer vegetables. Bread was a Utica bakery sourdough; crusty and very good. Filet was tender and cooked as ordered, veggies were...

Michael's appears to be a former residence that's been turned into a restaurant. There is a small bar area and three or four nicely decorated dining rooms. It's a pleasant spot to visit with friends while you're having something to eat. There were several inviting items on the lunch menu, but I chose the daily special: half-sandwich with onion soup....

We had a lovely dinner on Sunday in the early afternoon with calamari, lobster risotto and duck. The flourless chocolate cake was outstanding. Beautiful historic home too and I enjoyed the Sinatra style music, it was perfect. I would give 4.5 stars and return soon.

Enjoyed the menu choices and the specials. Cocktails were very good with a nice beer selection as well. Friendly staff. Haddock Oreganato was delicious. Utica bread served with a decent salad. Pleasant atmosphere. Too full for dessert.

My wife and I stopped here after a day shopping in Utica. I had the 6 oz. choice burger and upgraded from chips to the french fries. The burger was cooked medium rare to perfection and the fries were crispy, lightly spiced, and lightly salted. I could not have asked for a better lunch! My wife had the turkey club... More
