    Service was meh. Appetizers of shrimp and grilled calamari were good however this followed with the lobster cappelini which showed up as a soupy mess. Way too much sauce and overcooked pasta. Not the presentation I expected from a finer dining restaurant. Very disappointing and could barely eat. The waiter didn’t even question why I had a full plate in front of me and only asked if I wanted it boxed up. Had high hopes for this place as I hadn’t been for 20 years but was extremely disappointed

    My husband and I were celebrating both New Year’s Eve and our Dec 28 wedding anniversary. We started going out for our anniversary dinner on New year’s Eve because we enjoy the special dinners offered by many restaurants that night. As always, Michael’s did not disappoint. The three courses were all delicious and perfectly prepared. Our waiter, Carlos, was friendly, helpful, and always checked to make sure the food was as expected.

    We ordered different entrees. They were all so salty we couldn’t finish them. We have had really great meals here in the past, so it was so surprising. Absolutely terrible meal. And not enough servers working, so service was very slow.

    We had been to Michael's once previously and had a very positive experience, unfortunately since then it seems the level of service which you can expect to receive has fallen-off significantly. We came in to celebrate a special occasion, and sat waiting for our food order to be taken for 45 minutes before we had finished our half bottle of wine, cocktails, and water, and decided to just cut our losses and go to a different restaurant. I appreciate that it is difficult to hire people right now, but all the restaurants regulars were well taken care of around us, and we received absolutely no service. There were three other tables our waitress was familiar with, who arrived after us, and ordered their food before we decided to leave. It took me less time to drive to another restaurant, and receive my appetizers then it did to sit and drink a bottle of wine waiting for my waitress at Michael's to take my food order. I would spend my money at a restaurant which cares about providing competent service to their paying customers. I paid 90$ to sit at their restaurant for 45 minutes, and have my anniversary ruined. 10/10 will not be back.

    My husband treated me to dinner for my birthday. We especially enjoyed the special game menu available only for a short period of time. My Cornish hen and my husband’s deer chop were both unusual menu items and excellently prepared. We shared a Toblerone mousse cake for dessert, and it was wonderful, too.
