    Dinner was great, very nice homelike setting. We dine out very often, never had a steak dinner cost so much. Wine was marked up almost 3x ... Might return, but they need to remember they are in Northport, not Northern Blvd in Great Neck.

    From the minute you walk in J.Michaels you feel the special warm welcome that continued through till the end of our night! The food is amazing. Always different specials to choose from. The zucchini appetizer was delicious! And the cucumber salad was perfect!! We shared the porterhouse steak that melts in your mouth. We look forward to going back.

    If you are a lobster lover, J Michaels has a 3 course lobster dinner on Friday nights. It was excellent. The first part of the meal is always my favorite, tuscan bread with gorgonzola cheese, to die for.

    We went here for a special occasion, and it was lovely. Service was impeccable, with the entire staff almost falling all over us and the other customers. With only a few tables, it's not hard for them. If you go here, go for the steak, and bring a fat wallet. Personally, I think $50 to $100 is way too much for a steak, regardless of the quality, aging, and preparation. But folks all around us were ordering it, so it must be good. I opted for a more reasonably priced shrimp dish, which was very good. My wife, however, had a chicken dish that was dry and tough - not what one would expect from a high-end restaurant. So go for the steak, and be prepared to pay for it.

    Simply put--J. Michaels is overpriced and not worth it. We've had food far superior at a much better price point. Also of note is related to the staff--they seriously were over the top, "trying" (very obviously) to have this air of pretentiousness--it was such a turn off. It was actually laughable..."madam". "the gentleman"---really? That might work for the senior set, but not for us. It was quite off-putting. If the food is awesome, no need to put on an act. No need for us to return. I wish we had read reviews before dropping such big bucks!

    Good for a special occasion, if small group or couple. Dining area is small and tight if most tables full (maybe 8). Décor nice but austere, somewhat informal. Shame as food - steak, chops, and fish; is very well prepared. Steaks charred with perfect medium rare middle (as requested). Creamed spinach and roasted brussell sprouts were very fresh as well. Service seemed pushy at onset, but settled down and we had a nice leisurely meal. Waiters were professional and friendly. Treated you as friends. Some good choices in wine, but considering fare, would really benefit from a more extensive list. All-in-all, an enjoyable evening. But be ready for a $62 bone-in filet or a $69 bone-in ribeye. Great fresh food, locale doesn't seem to match.

    First class food, first class service and first class atmosphere....The pork chop was everything and more of what it should be....cooked perfectly, moist and tender for a chop that large! The Brazilian lobster tail was the best I've ever eaten!...Tony's suggestions were perfect from start to finish!

    EXTREMELY PRICEY - FOR WAHT? Room was ice cold on arrival...asked for them to turn it down. They made us feel like we were imposing. Bone-in rib eye was great - albeit pricey for a 28oz. at $69. Very limited wine list - only 15 reds. That shows they are working with limited capital. Had the Ruffino "Modus" for $80. THAT IS A 3X MARK UP - EXREMELY HIGH FOR A RESTAURANT OF JUST THIS CALIBER. Locally this wine sells for $26. Lagavulin Single Malt was $24 per glass neat (very high). We could have gone to Rothmann's in East Norwich and had better service, better ambiance, equally good food, for about $80 less. A true judge of a restaurant is when I answer the question - will I come back here? This would be a definite NO.

    We have been to J. Michaels for special occasions (as it can be a little pricey) three or four times. It never disappoints. The staff, particularly Dominick, pay special attention and are quite personable. They make you feel like you are the only ones in the room. The food is always terrific from the gorgonzola bread to the coffee and dessert. Highly recommend. One of the classiest places in the area.

    For those of us whose image of fine dining in Northport includes only Maroni's, add J michael's to that list. We set upstairs, which was a calm, quiet room. Our waiter was right out of central casting for a waiter who would fit in in any red checked table cloth Italian restaurant. But, J Michaels is more than a red checked Italian -- it has selected Italian dishes but is also a very good steakhouse. All food was well prepared and presented. The steaks were high quality. Service was attentive and friendly but not overwhelming.

    I've been to J Michael's three times now and it is always fantastic. This time I went for the Brazilian lobster tail stuffed with lump crabmeat. Didn't realize it was $110 though! My fault. It was on the blackboard as a special and I didn't notice the price. Nontheless, it was delicious (for that price it better be!). One complaint I have is the overall price though. I think the restaurant out priced the area. Charging Manhattan prices in Northport really doesn't work. It's just doesn't belong. Based on the amount of empty tables at prime time on a Friday night may reflect that. Not sure if a restaurant can stay in business with empty tables. That being said, those looking for a great meal, and can afford to pay for it, should dine here.

    While the service was very good, at times they did not pay attention to.detail. our food was removed more than once without asking if we were finished. The waiter was amazing though, knew his stuff well, was pleasant and funny. The pricing is what we had the hardest time with. Outrageous. Definitely not worth what they are charging. I thought pretty nervey in fact. Unfortunately for that reason I would not return. Dinner was 300 for two of us. That was for 4 appetizers split between 6 of us. 2 bottles of moderately priced wine, 3 sides and our entrees, and two desserts at $13 a piece. The porterhouse for two was $104, the Executive sirloin for two was $112 and my filet mignon was $65. Holy moly. But, we did enjoy our evening!

    If you want a cramped very loud space where it took 2 hours to only have gotten thru 1 course then this is the place for you. Our only saving grace was that we were at the last table against the wall so we did not have to endure the staff walking past our table and bumping into us all night. The dinner took 4 hours and the chairs are too hard to sit on for that long a period of time. When we commented on how long things were taking the waiter responded that they only have a six burner stove. The food is fine but the space is way to cramped to sit for 4 hours. Would not go back.

    Unfortunately this was a disappointing experience for us. Given the great ratings/press JM has gotten we were eager to try it, being foodies who appreciate a great dining experience. While all personnel were very nice, the wait staff was a bit overbearing (perhaps due to the early hour we were there with few other customers). The porterhouse for 2 was full of fat and sinew. When we noted this to the waiter he responded that the steak was supposed to have fat. We are well familiar with this cut of steak and the amount of fat it should have, our steak here was a bad cut. There was no offer to get a manager or attempt to resolve the issue. And steaks are not cheap so at a place of this supposed caliber we expected alot more.

    Service, steaks, scotch...impeccable! A little tough on the executive sirloin, which despite what they say about being as tender as filet mignon, is not. Only drawback, $100 for. 2.5 lb lobster? Ask for cost for "specials"... They don't volunteer them!

    The food was outstanding. Skip lunch so you are hungry because there are so many items worth ordering on the menu. It is pricey but no more so than any of the other upscale restaurants in the area. The difference though is J Michael's has great steaks to choose from but also the amazing Italian specials in case you aren't in the mood for steak. We will definitely be back soon.

    Took my wife here for Valentine's Day. The food was amazing, but it was incredibly expensive. we did NOT get a bottle of wine: 1 Appetizer, One Salad, steak for two, two sides, and a dessert. My wife had 3 glasses of wine, and we had a soda and sparkling water. Bill was $250+tip. While food was quite excellent, I definitely don't feel it was worth the money. Also - on a busy night, there was no place comfortable to wait for our table, but I'm sure that had more to do with being Valentines Day than anything else.

    Although I found the experience very pleasurable, the costs were EXORBITANT. 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 1 dessert and 5 cocktails should not equal $460 with tip. It would have to be a very, very special occasion for us to consider this restaurant again in the future. Valentines Day dinner: 1 shrimp salad, 1 fried ravioli, 1 porterhouse for 2, 1 8 oz lobster tail, 1 homemade devil dog, 2 cosmos & 2 scotch's YIKES!

The guys were very entertaining as well. Service was impeccible...they even brought our doggie bags out to the car for us. Menu was very inventive...especially the appetizers.

    Ate here for first time. Food was outstanding as was the service. Lobster Meatballs were amazing and very unique. We both had the aged steaks and they were outstanding. Food portions are generous so items can easily be split which is good given the $$$ is quite high. We sat downstairs and I would recommend this over upstairs if given a choice. Upstairs seemed more loud and not as quiet/romantic if that is what you are looking for. All in all a great experience and one of the best steaks I've had. We will be back.
