“Great food at great prices!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

They were tough to find tucked in to a shopping mall, but great food! and very reasonable prices! Every employee down to the bus boys, were so friendly and attentive! The owner or manager was around to every table making sure all was ok, which I thought was great. Even the young girl at the pay counter when I left said "I just love it here" ~ and it showed! Great job, Mike's Bistro!

“What happened? This used to be good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

We've eaten here before and gotten good service and delicious food. This time, the services was deplorable. The waiter was obviously in a bad mood and could care less about our dining experience. Waiter didn't bother to explain menu items or options and made us feel we were an inconvenience to him.

Music too loud - hindered the ability to have a conversation.

The food was not as good either. I would not recommend the Calzone de la Casa...the artochokes were not fresh steamed, they were pickled! That's a pretty odd flavor with the rest of the recipe. I became quite ill within a half hour of the meal.


One of the meals was not correct and the waiter made ugly faces about having to fix it, and we had to ask more than once for salad dressing and condiments.

Wouldn't recommend this and will not go again. If you want consistently good Italian food in this neighborhood (with excellent service) go across the street to Tagliani's. It may be a chain, but this location out serves Mike's hands down.

I wouldn't risk eating at Mikes again after how ill I was after this visit. And I hope that waiter gets an attitude adjustment!

“Very good pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

I went there at noon and there were about 6 people in the restaurant. The atmosphere was just wonderful. There were colored bottles and spices in the large expanse of windows which made it very cozy and modern. It would be a great date night place.
I ordered a Caprese pizza that had their home made sausage and lots of tomatoes and zucchini on it with plenty of buffalo cheese. There wasn't a great deal of sausage but it was very good, and filling. ( Probably a 10 inch pizza.) While I was waiting for the pizza I enjoyed a cup of decaf coffee with cream. The waiter did not bring a spoon so I tried and tried to get his attention but could not. Finally, the pizza came. I never did get the spoon. With so few people in there, you would think that the service would be better. I wanted to try the tiramisu but he informed me they were out of it so I chose the chocolate raspberry cake. It was wonderful.
I found this place to be a very good place to go but make sure you have lots of time to spend.
My bill was $35.00.

“Less than mediocre”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

We were unimpressed with the whole experience. The worse part was the musty greasy smell and the overkill outdated decor. The food was not good. We won't go back.

“Garlic lovers delight”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

The food was good particularly if you enjoy garlic. Super staff that took good care of us. Not sure we will be returning because of the garlic. Try the ravioli if you decide to go.
