    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.

    I was disappointed by the environment. It is a tiny place and the acoustics are poor. The servers are excellent and food was all very good. It is pricey though for what it is. I don't think the prices are justified.

    We have eaten multiple times at this unique Steakhouse. The steaks are aged and the wait staff extremely knowledgeable. Always good advice on unique wines found by owner and at reasonable prices (for a steak house and uniqueness) Many inventive appetizers a real comfort restaurant to relax, celebrate, or just leave feeling better than you went in.

    Dined on 1/28/2014
    We enjoyed our first visit to J. Michaels. Lovely ambiance. The lobster bisque was delicious and enough to be split between two people, which the waiter offered to do for us. The steak was good... not the best we ever had, but good. The star of the meal was the chocolate mousse cake which we also shared.... it was heaven on earth! Would recommend as long as you're prepared to spend $200 per couple (and that's without a bar bill).

  • When the water was brought

    Dined on 1/17/2014
    When the water was brought over to our table warm it was just a start of things gone wrong. The waiter then comes over and says he is printing the wine list. The waiter brings over a bottle of white that is 18 years old. The wine looked oxidized in the bottle. When the wine list was finally presented to us there were not many choices for us to pick from. We noticed Moet & Chandon "Dom Perignon' 1999 on the list and picked that one. They presented Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial. With a lot of apologies we decided not to stay as we had enough of their bumbles and mistakes. We got up and left. This was our first time to the restaurant and expected great things after reading so much about the restaurant. A total disappointment.

    We recently went on a busy Sat night. Sat at the bar and had a couple drinks while waiting for our table. Bartender "Rich" was very helpful. Our table was not ready for our reservation so Rich showed us a menu and offered some suggestions for dinner. I could not decide which red wine by the glass I wanted so Rich let me sample a couple that he recommended. Dinner was excellent. Service was spot on. We started with an antipasto tray and had the beef short ribs as an appetizer. Phenomenal! Short ribs were flavorful and the beef so tender. Husband and son had the sirloin for 2 and I had the Chilean sea bass. My husband could not remember when he had eaten a better steak. My sea bass was perfect. The portion was large; excellent!

    The drinks are good, the steaks are excellent if you like medium rare. If you like your meat more done, be prepared to send it back. The sides are overpriced and come to the table cold as do the supposedly hot appetizers. The coffee is also weak and served cold. All in all, if I want to drop a touch over a hundred per diner, I'll go to the Mill Pond Inn in Centerport or the Blackstone Steakhouse in Melville.

  • Best New Year's Ever

    The problem with dining out at even the best restaurants on New Year's Eve is that they're crowded, you get rushed, the food isn't up to its usual quality and overall it can be very mediocre. This was NOT the case at J. Michael's. We have eaten here before and the food, service and ambience are always superior and they pulled it off even better than usual on New Year's. The steaks, lobster meatballs, clams, shrimp cocktail, side dishes, dessert...everything was perfect. It wasn't overly crowded and we had a wonderful dinner, capped off by visits from both Jay and Vinny as well as complimentary champagne to bring in the New Year. J Michaels deserves its high rating as one of the best restaurants on Long Island. I can't wait to go back again.

    The steaks were excellent, but not the best. Service was very attentive but felt like there were too many hands in the pot (servers were eager to take our order and to check in but it created some confusion--some things fell through the cracks). Some appetizers/sides were superb (braised short ribs) but tomato mozzarella salad was just good (at $22!). Wine list was limited--the "French and Italian" list contained only Italian, mostly Chianti. I know it's a Tuscan steakhouse, but why so many chiantis and so little else from Tuscany? Overall, steaks were delicious but not memorable and service was attentive, but confused. This is a very classy place to go for a special dinner, but for the price, I would expect it to be more exceptional.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    When my reservation was being confirmed, the person from the restaurant was warning me that the restaurant is going to be very crowded and noisy so he wanted me to be aware of this before we come. I should have cancelled my reservation right then and there. The food was as good as a diner and the prices were like you were in a restaurant in Manhattan. I was really disappointed in this place because the reviews were very good. A lot of things we had were burned, such as my husbands steak for $45 which was suppose to be aged but was very hard and not tender, and our bread, was charcoaled as well as the burned hash browns. I do not recommend this place and would never go back. We wanted to leave as soon as possible.

    The food and ambience was great. The service was fair. Our waiter barely came to the table to check on us. He never asked us how the food was or if we wanted another drink. The person in charge of cleaning the tables was more attentive to us. This was unfortunate because the restaurant itself is very nice and the food was delicious. However, the service was very disappointing, so much that I doubt we will ever go back.

    Everything we had was delicious but a lot of it because of the amount of oil, cheese, or butter. The steak was excellent, but this was the most expensive meal Ive had on L.I. in 8 years and without any lobster or caviar or Fois Grois etc.... that just did seem right.

    My wife ordered the filet and really enjoyed it while my friend had the tune special. I ordered the sole almondine which was ok but not great. The bread was unbelievably good. Tiramisu for dessert was better than your typical fair. Servers were very attentive but kept interrupting our conversation. We definitely got the feeling that they did not want us to linger though everyone was very nice. Once the place gets full this is a loud and energetic place. The head waiter was very entertaining but you need a sense of humor.

    Way too pricey! The steaks were just OK, The ambiance is terrible ( especially if you sit upstairs). The service was attentive but the waiter was a little pushy. We had two appetizers, one mixed drink and one virgin Bloody Mary, two steaks, two dessert and it was $300! This place does not call for these prices. Same food ( I think better), way better ambiance and equal service at both Insignia and Prime - and the same meal would cost $200! Save your money and go somewhere else!

Food was great and the service was the best I have experienced (friendly, proper, attentive, and gave you the feeling they were happy to be there and serve you). Nice touches such as sorbet before main course, friendly valet parking, leftovers placed in your car while you have dessert. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

The Porterhouse melted in our mouths and the lobster meatballs are not to be believed, They are out of this world! The wine recommendation was perfect and we look forward to going back.
