    The food we tried was all delicious and fresh. The cocktails and wines were amazing. The best dishes we had were the crudo of Branzino and the homemade gnocchi. The only downside was it was dark & noisy.

    Really great dining experience. Menu creative with multiple options - steak specials, daily fresh fish specials, terrific soup and sides. Very very expensive, but worth it. Nice wine list, but just about all choices over $100.

    Mike's Bistro is a great restaurant that coincidentally is kosher. Always my first choice for a great kosher meal.

    Although I wish Mike's Bistro had remained on the Upper West Side, the new premises are larger and as tasteful as those at the old location. The food remains every bit as good and very attractively presented. Service is attentive without hovering. I expect to return.

    They should not take late night reservations. We were very excited to go and had been waiting for months for the opening. When we saw a last minute reservation time it seemed perfect. As we were looking over the menu we were told the kitchen was closing soon. The food came out almost immediately after it was ordered and was tasty. The waiter made it a point to saw the bar was remaining open but needed our food order. As he handed us desert the check was left on the table as well. The waiter did not even ask or wait to see if we wanted to order any sides. While an anticipated opening I am unsure if there will be a repeat visit due to the experience.

    Stark lighting. Wait staff disappeared and hard to find. Presentation of every dish with balsamic drizzle. Noisy too. Still the short ribs melt in your mouth and you could eat them with a spoon.

    We'd gone a couple of times to Mike's Bistro when it was a virtual hole in the wall on 72nd St. Now it has grown up. The food is just as good and the ambience is gorgeous. Love it. My son had the short ribs and his eyes rolled to the back of his head, he enjoyed it so much. Ditto for dessert. I had the veal chop which was delicious. The Merquez dumplings were, as always, delicious (could we get one more on the plate?) Javier was an attentive waiter who gave us the space to chill after a day at the U.S. Open before we ordered, while I enjoyed the margarita and my son a beer. So thanks for a delicious meal. We'll be back.

    Beautiful new location. The food was, as always, fabulous. The staff was extremely attentive. Everything flowed like clockwork. Best of luck to you in your new location. I'll be back next week.

    I've been to Mike's Bistro a number of times and have never been disappointed. The food preparation and presentation are excellent. The service is friendly and professional, and the new space is quite nice. In my experience Mike's is the best upscale kosher restaurant in the city.

    The menu was overpriced and the reason why we did not leave was because we were with another couple. Another example of taking advantage of Kosher requirements. Expensive main courses did not even come with sides. The gnocchi were delicious but the $47 rib steak was too salty. Even the branzino which does not have to be kosher was $40 without a side dish. We will definitely not go back.

    In its new location, Mike's continues its traditional approach to food: not much innovative going on here, but what they do is done very well. Merguez dumplings were excellent, and lamb shank just melted off the bone. The downside was the pressured service, a clear effort to move us out as quickly as possible. Putting the check on the table with the dessert is for the bush leagues, not for a restaurant that aspires to fit this new East Side location That makes what could be a lovely evening into just another rushed experience.
