Met up with a friend for dinner. Food and wine were excellent. Bar was also very good. The grilled octopus was incredible. The steak was excellent as well. Not cheap, but that was expected. Well worth it.
Excellent service and taste of food. They have a very good menu. Lots to choose from. Bit expensive but quality and proportions are very good.
been here so many times best dinner we have had anywhere
The food was absolutely phenomenal. The steak was cooked well done but still very juicy on the inside. The sides were large enough in portion to share.
Having been here before, I was looking forward to going back again ,no doubt the food is most always very good to excellent, however that is not enough....as there are tons of dining choices all over where to spend your dollars,
My reason for the low rating is the service, they obviously cannot handle a busy night as almost all seats (was a sat night,we had a party of 5) were mostly filled.
OK, I could get over the fact our server kept (at least 4X) bumping the back of one of my guests chairs each time he 'whizzed' by serving other tables,
But, what I don't like or approve of is the 60-90 minutes wait (making our dinner 'stay; over 3 hours) for our main meal (steaks), it was obvious our server never put in the order.
VERY disappointing, also one of my guests steaks was 100% well done when asked for medium well, and certainly no time to do another steak over.
While they offered free dessert, we were there so long (!) no one wanted to stay, it's a shame that their service could not equate to the very good food they serve.
Everything was great. Only complaint is I feel my steak was slightly over cooked. Med
Rare instead of rare. When paying steakhouse prices, I expect my steak perfect. 4.5
Everything was absolutely perfect! Excellent staff excellent food excellent wine
For a New Jersey steakhouse, Chris Michael’s is pretty good. However, it does not stack up against the steakhouses of NYC. The food is pretty good but nothing outstanding. The service is pretty good, but a couple of the servers could stand to get some more training in customer service. Specifically, when one of our dining companions, who happens to be pregnant, ordered the ribeye, the server made a comment about how she was “eating for two.” Personally, I felt that was a bit rude and judgmental of the server.
For a Steakhouse, they don’t know how to cook a steak. Overpriced and underserved. There seems to be a disconnect amongst the staff. I will not return.
Very nice place with great old fashion vibe. Very toned down.. relaxing environment. Great if don’t like too much noise/music
Awesome experience! Great food! Great atmosphere!
Friend Birthday , they were very pleasant and followed my instructions of the birthday cake. Great place. The waiter was awesome as well.
The steaks here are very good, no question about that. The rib eye was as good as anyones as was the bone on filet. grilled octupus was great along with the shrimp cocktail and soups. Sides we had were ok. Desserts had a mixed reaction. I would say the steaks and apps get five stars and sides and desserts get four and three.
Service was good. Overall i would go back.
Great awesome overall experience
Awesome steak cooked exactly how I asked for it. Had the grilled Octopus as app and it was fantastic. Place is a bit pricey but so are most good steak houses. Was very empty but it was also a Monday.
Great service at the bar ..always! The kitchen took a little longer than usual this time though. We waited a long time for our main course.
The food was great I had the short ribs and asparagus risotto
We had such a wonderful evening at Chris Michael's with our Friends! Everyone who works at Chris Michael's could not have been Friendlier! The food was excelent and the atmosphere was quiet but nice for a Thursday evening! Brian the Manager was exceptionaly nice and made sure we were happy with everything from start to finish! He is very knowledgeable about wines and it was fun talking to him about our favorite wineries! We all live about an hour from this resturant and it was certainly worth the trip, we are so looking forward to going back again soon!
Great food and service!!!!!!!!
Exactly what I expect from a fine dining establishment. Food was interesting, excellent quality, and delicious. The staff was friendly, helpful, and appropriate.
My normal 5 star expectations when I go to Chris Michael's fell a bit short this time around. I think we were placed with a first-time or very green waiter. He didn't ask if we wanted a drink from the bar when we sat (which we did). He didn't know to offer, or have the specials with him when he did come to take our order. His voice was so soft we couldn't hear ... problems we never had at CM's. As far as the steaks go, the petite-filet ordered medium had to be a medium rare and the rib steak order medium rare came out medium. The charred octopus an octopus salad. Disappointed.
We ordered the Burrata and it was very salty, almost inedible. The ribeye and filet were no better than what we can buy in our local supermarket.
We we seated in one of the worst tables despite the restaurant being empty. We asked to be reseated and were told we could not. We assumed because the other tables were being reserved for larger parties. Within 15 minutes numerous couples were seated at these tables. BTW we had reservations. No reason why a customer be denied a request.
Service was poor being served by a person who barely knew the menu.
Overall, poor food, poor service and ambience is dated and dull.
Will never go back.
The food was amazing!!! My husband and I went there for our 4th year wedding anniversary and we had a good time.
Andres was superb!
First time visiting this establishment and I liked the service and the portions of food. The warm bread caused me to be stuffed before I had my entrée. I would go again and recommend this restaurant to friends and family.
Great Service! Food was great! And the Raspberry Lemon Drop Martini!!! Yummy!!!!
Our waiter Joshua was the absolute best. Great food and drinks. Highly recommend.
Another great meal at Chris Michael's!! The food is always fantastic. The steaks were cooked perfectly, the sides are scrumptious and reasonably priced. Everything from appetizers to dessert was fantastic and the service was impeccable. Our waiter Andreas was wonderful. He was very attentive while still giving us enough privacy to enjoy our dinner. He was so friendly and the complimentary champagne to celebrate our anniversary was a nice touch and very thoughtful. We left feeling completely satisfied with our meal and happy with the entire experience. We will certainly be back again in the future!
Service was great as well as the food.
Waiter tried to over charge my CC and I pointed out the 'supposed error'. The manager came out to give me a very lousy explanation of what had happened. I know better! Never going back there again.
I recommend anyone who goes there to review the charges on the itemized bill and what they bring back after they get authorization from the bank on the CC.
Totally top-notch. I had the tremendous rib-eye, my wife the petite filet mignon. Nothing about the filet was petite and even I couldn't finish the rib-eye. Both done perfectly. We both were going low-carb so the meat was where the action was. Can't find a better steak certainly in NJ
There was a private party in the next room. They had the bass WAY UP. It was very annoying. I asked if they could see about getting it lowered. The person (maybe manager) said yes. Not sure if he tried or not, but the noise level didn't change.
Otherwise, the food and service was excellent.
Not at all happy with my 22 oz. Ribeye.
Very tough, not at all any hint of aging and came out medium well ( ordered medium rare). My wife had petite filet which she said was outstanding. Sides of mushrooms, mac n cheese and hot peppers were ample for 4 people and very good. Wine prices are approaching a 3x cost markup so I consider that high. Service was very good, attentive without imposing and our server took care to stagger appetizers( sushi roll), then salads (nice wedge) and then main plates.
Had an issue using a gift card ( an actual Chris Michaels issued gift card) for the second time in 3 visits. Put a damper on the nights expierience.
Met with friends, Three of us had steaks. Cooked as ordered, tender and juicy. Service was very good. Somewhat pricing but the quality of the steaks is great. Have eaten here about a dozen times over the past three years and food is always excellent.
Place was once much better. Going down hill somewhat. But still OK. Maybe not for much longer.
We went there for our anniversary. They personalized our Desert, it was great.
A must go place if you are looking for a great meal.
We went here to celebrate my son's new career. I chose this place as a few years earlier a friend and I stopped in and had a late lunch. I remembered the steak I had was phenomenal. Last Friday night we were not dissappointed. The service was impeccable, all 3 of us had amazing appetizers, entrees and dessert. If that wasn't reason enough to give this restaurant a great review, our waiter Josh was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and professional. A week earlier I went to a very popular steakhouse in Red Bank and it pales in comparison to Chris Michaels. Highly recommend it. Lynne F
The place was empty and the food lacked as well as the menu but the service was impeccable.
