Diner Reviews
  • "The Food was just "ok" and the service was terrible. The place was basically empty, we were a table of 4 and had to wait a very long time for everything we asked for. Will not go back."

  • "I needed to find reservations a few weeks ago between 7:00/7:30 for 2 people. I searched on Open Table for what options I might have. Michael' s came up. I reviewed their menu and it looked good. The food was so good I came back the next week and brought family I had in town and they LOVED it! So 2 weeks in a row, it was AMAZING!!! The Pecan Crusted Chicken was off the charts!!"

  • "Like traveling in time back to the 90's and not in a good way. The menu is old and tired (references a lot of off the shelf, branded seasonings for entrees, has liquor shots on the menu (classy!!!) for example). Supposed to be a fine steak house (with high prices to match) but menu calls out that meat quality is Choice, not Prime or Aged Prime like you would get at Del Frisco's, Ruth's Chris or elsewhere. We had a jalapeño shrimp appetizer with lime dressing that was just ok - nothing special. The pepper crusted tenderloin I had was so heavily peppered I couldn't taste the meat (maybe that was a good thing). By the end of dinner we didn't want to risk dessert so we left and went to another restaurant."

  • "Wish they would turn down the canned music in the dining room. Otherwise a good evening with good food and friends."

  • "I asked which items were or could be made gluten-free and the waitress told us "none. we are not a gluten-friendly restaurant" Since my date and I had that requirement that meant we got a glass of wine and left. A simple burger restaurant afterwards was better able to accommodate an allergy request. This was strange because 2 years ago they modified a menu item to make it safe and confirmed my sides were as well. Just a very bad waitress."

  • "It has been years since i have dined here and all i can remember about it is how fantastic it was. It is just not the same anymore. the food was good. But the menu was very lacking. not alot of options. and the staff seemed a little bored so it would have been nice if they left was alone a bit. If i go back it will only be if they have a special menu for the stock show or a holiday when they have more options to choose from"

  • "Took a beautiful young lady to dinner for Valentines Day. Neither of us had dined here before, but we will definitely be back. Our waiter was exceptional. He was very friendly and knowledgable about the menu and saw to our every need while not being intrusive. The food was very good. She had the swordfish and it was grilled to perfection. My raspberry lamb chops were delicious as well."

  • "The food was good but not great. The appetizer I chose was the scallop. It was attractive on the plate and cooked to perfection. Unfortunately it lacked flavor. The color accents on the plate were deep pink and yellow sauces accenting the plate but which had very little flavor. The salad romaine lettuce was beautiful with a good dressing (Cesar with chipotle I believe) but the salad lacked much in complimentary flavors.. parmesan.. fried cornbread croutons or some other inspired addition to bring up the flavor and surprise the diner. Overall the flavor seemed restrained. The swordfish should not have been plated. It was very dry, overcooked and again the flavor was sadly lacking."

  • "Took my new sweetheart to Ft. Worth, a town I loved living in years ago, for Valentine's weekend but didn't know a lot of the new restaurants. Booked a table at Michael's on the strength of Open Table reviews but was underwhelmed, especially given the price of the special prix fixe menu. Her duck breast was fine but my swordfish was average at best. First courses were good but not outstanding and the salads were...different. Desserts were very good and a Ferrari-Carano chardonnay for only $36 was the hit of the evening. On the service side, no customer at a restaurant this pricy should have to ask for water refills."

  • "Went to Michaels on Saturday night, enjoyed the experience. Started in the bar...drinks are a plenty but dirty martini and N. Modelo on tap were our choices. Different menu in bar than the restaurant, not sure why they do that since bar was happening and dining was a lil slow, but perhaps they want the bar to be more crowded. Nice fire in both bar/dining room. Dinner: prime rib was good, pecan smoked, but no Lawry's. Dad had the pork chop and enjoyed it. The blue cheese double stuffed potato was good as well as Apple crisp dessert. Overall good food...nice atmosphere."

  • "Our foursome dines on Friday Nights at various places in Fort Worth -- and this was our first time at Michaels ... we had looked at the menu online and thought we would give it a go --- we didn't realize when we got there that a special stock show menu was in place. Overall the food was good --- nothing really jumps out ... our server was pleasant --- the atmosphere very easy and a beautiful fireplace was the vocal point."

  • "Our experience was awesome and matt was the best ever the only complaint was the tables leaning and not sturdy"

  • "The Pecan Crusted Goat Cheese Chicken is my families favorite, along with the Tres Major and Salmon...a must is the tenderloin pizza as an appetizer...maybe the best pizza in Fort Worth...Thanks MT for another great evening!"

  • "This was my first time to visit the restaurant. We decided to hold our holiday luncheon here and the food was excellent!! Very quaint and nice decor- It's like a little hidden gem inside! I will be visiting again and look forward to my next visit!"

  • "This is not the same Michael's I was expecting. It's more like a sports bar with a dining room. The menu is more like bar food than the former Michael's fine dining cuisine. It was a total disappointment. Surprised that Open Table keeps it on the list."
    Dined on 10/4/2013
  • "Most of the food was really good. Though I ordered my beef tenderloin medium rare, and it came out extra extra rare. And I usually like a rare steak, but I had a hard time even enjoying this. The wait staff seemed a bit under trained. Lacking knowledge of the wine menu. Also getting my side orders wrong."
