Diner Reviews
  • "Great restaurant. Visited with hubby and we both ordered the Chris Michael rib eye. Perfectly cooked, juicy and full of flavor. Our waiter was excellent and valet was courteous. Definitely our favorite steakhouse in the area!"

  • "The food, wine and service is always top-notch. You cannot find many more consistently fine restaurants than Chris Michael's, and for some reason, you are usually able to get a reservation on Saturday night whenever you call. This is a true gem,"

  • "We celebrated our son's 30th birthday with a dinner for him and his wife at Chris Michael's. The food was delicious with each steak being cooked to order and the sides plentiful enough for the table to share. We also were lucky enough to have Jose as our waiter who service was impeccable - friendly, timely and efficient. We were not rushed and my son and his wife had a great time which was a treat in and of itself since they are usually tied down at home raising our 3 year old grandson. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "My husband and I have been frequenting this restaurant for a while now.. While I am used to the noise level, the busting atmosphere, I will never get used to being seated at a table that is isolated and so secluded that the waiter continually forgot about us... We had to ask several times for the bread.. had to wait longer than usual for our order to be taken and after we were served, we were basically forgotten, unless we flagged over our waiter.. Suffice it to say that my husband wants me to find a new "favorite" restaurant.. No bueno!!"

  • "This was an excellent choice for Sunday evening dining. This restaurant which ordinarily is very noisy was quiet and we could leisurely enjoy our dinner. The food was good, I am not always in favor of everything be a la carte. I would have preferred to have some side with our entree, if for no other reason that it looks solitary on the plate. We enjoyed our dining experience."

  • "Everything was great, except when i made the reservation, i requested to be away from exterior doors, and away from foot traffic. we were seated next to the kitchen door, with a direct path to the front door. we felt the cold breeze every time the front door was opened"

  • "We've been here many times, love that it's in the neighborhood. Sushi was good, not great. A little warm and shrimp tempura was overfried. Salad fresh. Rolls fresh. Steaks were excellent. Delicious rib eye, and bone-in filet mignon. Service excellent. We dined early around 6, CM gets a later crowd which was terrific (nice & quiet...). Recommend and will revisit!"

  • "Good food, but expensive. Service was not as good as previous trips to the restaurant. Didn't write down our orders and the waitress made a few errors (brought the wrong sushi roll and side dish!) We also informed them that it was our anniversary and were hoping they'd acknowledge it but didn't. Would still go back for the food - my husband loves their steak!"

  • "Do not pick this restaurant for a Valentine's Day. Pre Fix was really bad 55$per person. Menu item read scallops but in actuality there was 1 scallop on a large plate. Our dinner was at 730 we got sat on time but we had to wait for 30-40 between each course. Very poorly organized."

  • "Horrific waiting time for a restaurant that takes reservations. If your not "in" with an employee here be prepared to wait for at least an hr before being seated. They will lie to you and tell u the wait time is only 10 minutes! Second time they did this to me, will never return. The food wasn't bad but the service was terrible as well. Very slow waiters that never check on you. Took them 30 minutes to bring our drinks!"

  • "Been here twice before on Valentines Day and have been satisfied with everything, but after this years experience, we will never go back. To start, they changed and went to a fixed menu this year. There were about 4 choices for appetizers and main course and 2 dessert choices for a set fee of $55 per person. Both my wife and I were upset with that. Maybe it was to limit the choices the kitchen had to cook and speed thing up, but no, we sat down at 7:30pm and didn't leave until 11pm. 25 minutes to take our drink order. 20 min after to take food order at 8:15. "Seared Scallop(s)" came with ONE scallop on a plate at 9pm! Dinner came out at 10:15!!! 2 tables next to us were going through the same experience. Over booked or under staffed!"

  • "Even though I had a 10pm reservation, I still waited about an hour which was fine because it was NYE and they had a terrific bar in the waiting area, not to mention great music coming from the lounge area. The food was great, the service was fast, the sushi was fresh, and they even gave out a free champagne toast at midnight! I would definately come back."

  • "overall food was good but i felt they were rushing us because it was new years eve, received main course before we were finished with our appetizers. restaurant wasn't even crowded. would go back but maybe not on a holiday."

  • "I attended the lunch with my co-workers, we each decided to have the Crab Cakes, must say they were not very good, and pretty much ruined my lunch. I would recommend you finding another receipe or taking this off the menu."

  • "The only thing that I didn't like is we had a 9:15 reservation and got seated at 10..."

  • "This was our 2nd time dinning at the restaurant; the service was excellent and the food was very good. The atmosphere was inviting with just enough surronding noise. The only complaint I have is I mentioned it was hubby's bday, but that was NOT acknowledged."

  • "Celebrated a friend's birthday with Chris Michael's Sunday brunch. The food & service were exceptional. Steak & eggs were great! The ambiance was modern, yet cozy. I have been here one other time & received the same great service. Had sliders that time and they were excellent. The food is always fresh & tasty. The staff is always friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant."
