We enjoy the Michelangelo for great food and service. It is a go-to for a special occasion. They have recently redecorated the restaurant with a bistro, and it certainly seemed popular when we spent last Saturday evening. I do agree that the large wall they erected is rather massive. We asked for the old restaurant part, which we find especially romantic. It is a relaxing atmosphere, with attentive staff. There is certainly rush to push you out the door... the table is yours for the night. The wine list is extensive, but is very expensive. We usually ask the waitor for a recommendation in a certain price range, and they always come through. You don't like it? They promise to take it back. It hasn't happened yet. Deserts are also lovely...

Spent 2.5 hrs in a wonderful setting , the 4 of us all enjoyed excellent food and service. THE wine list is quite extensive and after picking one which was not available were recommended a lower priced one that was excellent. Great coffees and desserts.

Something is lost, hard to explain..food was mediocre..New interior design is not appealing. Tables for two seem more crowded behind this massive wall which has a bistro effect on one side . Has lost a lot of the romance....that's all....disappointed, not going back.....very, very disappointed.

Despite his great reptutation, my colleagues and I were very disappointed when we went to this restaurant. The service was very bad and the food, too expensive since nothing very special was offered in the menu. There are a lot of great restaurants in Quebec city, going to Michael Angelo is not the best idea!

Enjoyed a fine meal in one of the private salons at the Michelangelo with 4 friends. We were offered this prestigious salon as the main dining room is currently undergoing renovations. (This being said we were told that anyone can reserve a private room).

A true gastronomical experience, the 5 of us were treated to an amuse-bouche consisting of fresh Bruschetta and a deep fried bocconcini to begin the evening.

We then savoured Minestrone soup, and some Beef Carpaccio that was among the best we've ever had. For our main courses, 3 of us had Pasta. They serve sampler plates which include 5-7 different pastas that are simply to die for. (We learned afterwards that there is a small pasta factory right in the lower floor of the restaurant which is why the Pasta was so fresh).

2 of us chose the veal, prepared with a citrus sauce, and extremely tender and tasty.

We chose not to have any dessert as we were completely stuffed after our meal.

We were treated to a traditional Grappa by the wait staff..

Definitely looking forward to coming back here again..
