  • "Overall, Michael's has delicious food and the service is warm and welcoming."

  • "I arranged a special night out with my close girlfriends. We all met at the beautiful bar area and had snappy cocktails before going to sit in the dining room. Once in the dining room we were taken care of by an excellent server who was very knowledgeable about the food. We started off with fantastic fresh oysters and champaign and all had different main courses, risotto, pasta, fish and steak. All of the mains were delicious. We were too full to have dessert but next time we will make sure to make room because they looked great."

  • "My girlfriend and I each had the caesar salad and a steak; she had the stripling and I had the filet. The salad was amazing and the steaks were cooked to perfection. We shared rapini and mushrooms on the side, thinking the portions would be small. Instead they were massive and by the end of the meal we could not even imagine dessert. Service was impeccable. We can't wait to return."

  • "Outstanding service starts at the curb and ends with heartfelt gratitude for the patronage. Waiter was an allstar. Great menu and wine list with variety for most tastes. My steak had great flavour but just a little on the nervy side. Definitely return and highly recommend."

  • "For fine dining the place is not obnoxious, hostess and waiters were very helpful and knowledgeable. Scallop was perfectly cooked. Although the dry aged striploin I still prefer Jacobs. Overall menu is good size (big menu always worry me that nothing is really good). Wine list is good. Ran into friend dining with family, great ambiance."

  • "Quality of service was perfect. The dry aged strip loin I ordered was much bigger than expected. Perfectly cooked. Finely a good steak and a good manhattan... you think that would be an easy thing to find in this city. Desert and coffee where also excellent. I think this is my new favorite place in the city for a steak. I don't know if there is anything else on the menu as I got tunnel vision when my steak arrived... I still day dream about it! LOL!"

  • "My husband and I visited Michael's on March 22, 2014 with another couple. We had a fabulous experience and are already planning a return visit. The steak was exceptional, the wine was excellent and the service was extraordinary. We enjoyed our dinner and then had a few drinks at the bar. We loved that they had a DJ there! We can't wait to return."

  • "Impeccable service with first class food. Food was not rushed. Steak was perfectly prepared and served as expected from this steak place. I took a pic of the rib bone that was as long as a sword (shorter sword, ha-ha). Verde soup with pesto was well balanced and even not too salty, which requires extra care to prepare. Tuna and black cod were perfectly prepared and garnished together with an exquisite orange sauce worth mentioning even days after the dinner. Manager came by several times to check if everything was to our liking. Overall, and exciting dining experience, pricey, but well worth spending. There were 4 of us, all with some food "experience", and there was not a single issue raised about the food, service or atmosphere."

  • "Dinner last weekend as exceptional! From the moment we were greeted at the door until we got our coats back at the end of the night. The service was outstanding, and the food was fabulous! The Kale Salad is truly the best salad in the city! I can't wait to go back! I also shared the Chateaubriand which was highly recommended by our waitress, and it did not disappoint! It was perfectly cooked and mouth watering! All of the "sides" which are ordered separately were yummy! The Desserts were also unbelievable! Don't go to Michaels on SImcoe if you are dieting!!! Everything is so tempting..... you will want to try all of it!!! Give yourself a day off from the diet - it will be worth every bite!!!"

  • "We were looking for a good steakhouse with a varied menu and Michael's delivered! From the ambiance to the attentive service of our exceptional waiter, Kelly Kwan, this restaurant is superb. The bread and olives set the delicious tone. Then came the appetizers--excellent shrimp cocktail, and a sublime squash blossom concoction. The steaks were fabulous. They melted in our mouths and the sides were a great complement: sea salt fries, mashed potatoes and rapini. Dessert was yummy-- a simple chocolate brownie with a scoop of ice cream and a good tiramisu. Michael's exceeded our expectations. What a wonderful dining experience."

  • "We tied Michael's on a whim and we found it very appealing. The steaks were excellent. The ambiance was energetic and bright. I will definitely go again."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Michael's is a beautifully appointed restaurant, with polite and attentive staff, as well as excellent food. I would describe the experience as refined and upscale. The restaurant was fairly quiet at lunch, and an excellent spot for conversation. Perhaps not as buzzy as some Bay street spots, it was a very good setting for a private client lunch."

  • "My husband and I thought we would celebrate v-day here. I called in a week in advance to book and reserve two halal steaks one ny striploin 8 oz and a ribeye for my husband. They said this would be no problem to order two different cuts of halal steak and they will have it ready for us. Not only did they not have our cuts of steak, they had completely different ones, they only had bone in striploin. We sucked it up and had the wrong order of steak (not to mention at a higher price), & didn't like it, the staff couldn't care less when we notified them of this, on top of that service was horrible-stick with jacobs or ruths for a better fine dining experience, at least there you will get what you want, and get what you pay for."

  • "When we arrived at the restaurant the staff was very professional and friendly. The dining area was very chic and the bar area was very energetic. Steaks were cooked to perfection. The owner introducing himself to our table was greatly appreciated. Everyone must experience this restaurant!!"

  • "We recently celebrated a birthday at Michael's on Simcoe and everything was perfect right from the moment we walked through the door! The food was fabulous and the spacious booth made the dining experience all the more comfortable and cozy. The staff tended to our every need (even those we hadn't anticipated). The special touch to the birthday dessert was beautiful. We will be back!"

  • "Great atmosphere, a great wait staff, and really good food as well. We went before a show and the service was quick and efficient without being hurried. Our waiter was outstanding : attentive and prompt without being intrusive. Went with just two of us this time, but would return with a group any time."

  • "I had a great first experence there. Loved the tuna and the lobster roll. Waiter was fantastic. Second time the waiter wasn't as spot on. I ordered a double espreso long and it came short (the coffee was also all over the handle). The burger was huge and delicious but the fries were soft and gross. Octopus salad was cold by the time it arrived and it was deep fried (I don't believe this was indicated on the menu). Waited for the hostess for 10 minutes to get my coat back. There were only 4 tables so I'm not sure what was keeping her busy. Overall, expensive for so-so meal."

  • "Went to dinner with friends to celebrate a birthday. Had called in advance to request a special desert or piece of Cake for the person celebrating in our party. They told me no problem asked how to spell her name said they would prepare a sample desert platter. When it was time for coffee and desert the other members in out party ordered something off the menu, and I was anticipating them bringing the feature guest a special desert as requested. Instead they platter two of the deserts ordered and presented it to our guest. And then brought us large dinner plates to share. I thought that was unprofessional and not very nice. The food however and ambience of the restaurant was excellent I would recommend it and definitely go back."

  • "Wow.. I usually don't write reviews but my recent experience at Micheals was so great I felt the need to share. We were running late for our reservation, when I called to let them know, they thanked me for calling to let them know and assured it wasn't an issue. Our server was very attentive, friendly, and very knowledgeable. The food was perfect. I would highly recommend the Burrata appetizer and the black cod I had as my main was cooked perfectly, the cod melted in your mouth. Micheal (the owner) came over to thank us for coming and check how everything was and brought us complimentary dessert and after dinner drinks. Micheals definitely gets 5 stars from me."

  • "Used to be Monsoon. Well done renovation. Black Cherry drink was fantastic (very expensive though). Steak (fillet) was incredible, rivals the top steak restaurants in TO easily. Pasta delicious. Overall excellent food, comfortable hip atmosphere and great waitstaff. Only drawback is the noise level. Sometimes I couldn't hear the people across from me."

  • "Very good food and good drinks. Clearly steaks are the specialty, but my friend and I had fish and pasta and were very satisfied. They were very slow bringing our cheque but otherwise service was good."

  • "Last night while staying in T.O. for the Eagles concert we made late afternoon reserv. at Michael's close to our hotel. Kind Michelle at reception offered Valet service. Dinner AND a ride ~ fantastic ! Not only valet TO the ACC BUT as it was raining they picked us up at our hotel in a black Mercedes SUV . My husband ran late but Sebastian , our driver, waited until my husband arrived . Service was unparalleled ~ came through a private entry, sat at a magnificent table, drank an outstanding bottle of wine . Stuffed zucchini blossoms ~~ and a delicious octopus salad with chick peas, capers and greens. Then a succulent steak for my husband and lobster ravioli for me ! The food was delicious and service perfect and time observant. Thanks !"

  • "Michael's on Simcoe specializes in steak. Two of us asked for medium-rare sirloin bone-in steaks, which arrived over-cooked. At the prices that appear to be the highest in the city, this is not acceptable. Worse, the steaks were dry and not sufficiently seasoned In contrast, Jacob's and other steak houses in Toronto are much to be preferred over Michael's. Given the high prices they charge, we will not be back."

  • "Dined with my husband and son. The service was excellent--courteous and prompt. My husband said his steak was good as well as the pepperonata and he enjoyed his tiramisu. My son said his caesar and seafood bisque were ok--same for his ice cream sandwich dessert. I had the halibut which was beautifully presented, however the fish was overcooked and the dish overall a bit dry and lacking flavour. Dined early before a hockey game so it was very quiet in the restaurant. Loved the decor--nicely lit and cool, contemporary design. Valet parking and shuttle (in Mercedes SUV) to the ACC was an excellent touch. Walking back might not be as enjoyable in the cold weather, however. Would definitely give it another try."
