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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
