    Excellent experience overall. Apps (clams casino and calamari) were standard fare, but all entrees were outstanding. NY strip was seared well and proper medium rare cook, filet tip risotto had at least 6oz of steak on it and was delicious, and the short rib was excellent as well. Kids filet was a bit pricey at $26, but was a legit filet mignon cooked properly. Wine list was reasonable by the bottle or by the glass. Highly recommended for steaks as well as other dishes, and probably best anywhere in the immediate area.

    I had to ask for bread and we didn’t get butter or Olive oil. They seemed disorganized but maybe they didn’t have enough help. I had a stomach ache when I got home

    Overpriced and the service was slow despite the fact that the dining room was only 20 percent occupied. Given the high prices for entrees, white tablecloth service should be the standards

    The filet mignon was very good however the salmon was very oily and super small piece. Tuna tartare is good - would recommend and well as mussels and clams in garlic sauce.

    My meal wasn’t to my liking and it wasn’t crowded. Expected food to be better. Steak and lobster was dry and room temperature not hot. Lobster was nasty. Won’t go back.

    The food and service were excellent. My only complaint is that the music was club type music and was a little loud. I would expect more mellow type dinner music for an upscale steakhouse.

    They have the potential to be a great steakhouse but the porterhouse was bland and over cooked and the service was terrible. Some high points were the octopus and the oysters. Everything else was just ok. Too bad because we were looking for a good local steakhouse. Will continue going to Roots in Princeton.

    Steaks are fair at best but prices are comparable to the best steak houses serving aged beef (high). Putting the prices and the quality to the side it was most aggravating that they charge a $19 plate charge if you want to split a $110 36oz steak with an additional person.

    Seems to be declining from what it use be. We had a reservation for 2, when we arrived they showed reservation for us. Tried to sit at a make shift table in the corner on the backside of the bar. We refused and end up at a high table in the small bar area. Took 15 minutes before a server came to our table. Once we ordered and it arrived the food was good...until in walks a lady carrying a small dog (claiming it to be her companion animal) and sits directly in front of us. To sum this up: I have been coming to this resturant for over 20 years, when it was Poor Billy's. Management has changed a few times and each time, it gets worse. Sadly to say, this was our final visit to Chris Michaels.

    The service and food is great. My husband and I came for a early dinner. Our waiter was very attentive and the food came out fast. We had calamari for appetizer. I got the special which was filet mignon with shrimp, green beans & truffle fries. My husband got the Braised Beef Short Ribs. Our sides were Garlic Mash and Mac & Cheese. Wish we had room for dessert. Will definitely recommend and come back!

    Explained that we had about an 90 minutes before I needed to drive my guest to the airport for a flight to Ireland. We waited 15 minutes without any service (the restaurant had 3 other table seated). I approached some staff standing around and asked for service. I would not recommend this venue.

    The noise was very loud for such a elegant dining experience that I was looking for. The food was good, but the prices did not reflect the food received. Nice place to dine, but over priced and too loud.
