    Food was very good! We had crispy rice amnd charred octopus appetizers and both were great. My wife got the rack of lamb and i had a steak/lobster tail. The lamb was over cooked BUT they took it back and gave us a perfectly cooked rack of lamb and comped it. Really wasnt necessary but was greatly appreciated. Will definitely go back again.

    The food was amazing but I never knew how much service mattered until I was treated otherwise. This was not my first time at Chris Michael's but it certainly will be my last. Our waiter rushed us to get our order, ignored us most of the night, food took forever, we were given butter knives for our steak. A different server had to give us dessert menus 25mins after plates were cleared and our server didn't even bring out all the desserts requested. Even after the manager apologized for the inconvenience didn't have the decency to comp our dessert. Sadly I looked around the room and noticed the other waiters were attentive and present for their customers. After paying almost $400 a different server not only took the bill but asked why I didn't tip. Worst service I've ever had, sorry being a paying customer was an inconvenience.

    Not how I remember Chris Michaels, service was terrible. Waiters not attentive at all , sat down for 40 min before being greeted with a waiter, I think Luis was the name . after waiting so long to get tge check , had to ask 4 waiters before we can finally get check , I thought our waiter left . Only after paying with the ccard we saw our waiter come out to bring the ccard receipt . Through kitchen glass can see waiters talking to each other pointing and laughing at customers . Just unprofessional. Definitely a different circle of crowd , again not how I remembered it and will not come back.

    I have to first say that our server was amazing and it was not her fault that everything else was absolutely awful. To charge $74 for a steak that was ordered medium rare and came out well done is bad, but fixable. But to be told by the manager it would take 25 to 30 mins to replace it (knowing we didn’t have time) and then offered a free desert was insulting. He even questioned our knowledge of the steak prep and asked us to cut into the center of the steak to show us is was good appropriately and then begrudgingly acknowledged we were correct. The wedge salad was a limp few pieces of lettuce smothered in canned crispy fries onions (think funions) and drowned in blue cheese dressing. The charred octopus starter was nice, not special. The decor was tired and dated. The menu was completely overpriced. Run don’t walk to the next option

    This. Restaurant. Is. Terrible. Big steakhouse prices without the big steakhouse flavor or presentation. We ordered a porterhouse for two and it came out cold and well done. We ordered grilled asparagus and mushrooms with onions. We received broccoli, mushrooms no onions, and mashed potatoes. Okay, maybe the sides get messed up and a patient customer can adjust. However, I must emphasize that the steaks were inedible. In.Ed.Ibile. Please save your pennies for Wolfgang’s in Somerville or Peter Luger’s in Brooklyn.

    6:30p dinner Sunday, Family dinner kids/ baby crying noise level high , looking for a quiet dinner experience was definitely not the place. Dinner rolls were great but had to ask for extra butter , hair on the utensils , I ordered A WELL DONE FILET MIGNON has NO pink nor red in the meat. Terrible couldn’t eat it, was cut up in 2 place to check if it was done torn the meat apart before I received it, still wasn’t done., Even the coffee , I guess they had to Creamer only light skim milk , by that time, was not impressed. Sorry will not be going back

    I had a great time with my family at Chris Michael’s restaurant… I’ve been living in the area for 11 years and always heard great things about the food and dining. The food and the experience was great overall, I will be back very soon to try some other things on the menu. It’s a thumbs up 👍🏽 for me!

    This is our go to steakhouse when visiting the area. 1/2 rack of lamb was exceptional and NY strip was tender, though very slightly over the medium rare ordered. Definitely will come back and recommend over any other premium steakhouses in the immediate area.

    It is my second experience with Chris Michael’s steakhouse. First one was incredible. At this time, the cocktails, the appetizers, the desert and the service was amazing. I was a little bit disappointed with the food, it was too salty. But no matter what I will come back.
