First time and definitely recommend it. Food was delicious and service was impeccable.
This place was recommended to me and I must say I was impressed. The food was excellent and the ambience was just right. Service was great. Would definitely recommend and will be back for sure!
Usually a good place and we've had a good dinner prior, but this time they dropped the ball completely. They had a 60th birthday in their upstairs space, with window looking down at tables below. Kids banging on the window to try attract our attention and other sudden and sharp noises that were very distracting. Our Server was scarce. Food quality was average. Frutti de Maro pasta was bland with 2 small scallops, 2-3 shrimps and 6 small mussels. My wife and I both ordered it because a friend had previously enjoyed that dish. Initially we waited 15 minutes for a drink order and only got it because we asked someone to get the attention of our server, and then after the meal another 15 minutes just to make payment, by that time the restaurant was empty (except event upstairs) and it was obvious to the cleaning crew standing around we're waiting to pay, the only diners left! Perhaps when they have a big event, do not take too many bookings that cannot be served well.
Staff are always very friendly and helpful.
Enjoy going to MBD.
Terrific atmosphere, service and food.
We will be going back.
The food was amazing as always. The service and atmosphere was exactly what we wanted. A great night out with family. Couldn’t have asked for more
Great service, very friendly and amazing food! We'll be back.
We have missed coming to Michael's Back Door and were so glad to be back.. They have expanded the menu and have wonderful offerings.
We had Smoked Salmon and Mushroom Tart as our starters and Rack of Lamb and Pollo Supreme as our Mains. Both were excellent. And we had the Crème Caramel as our dessert to share.
Wendy who was our server was very very good and her service was par excellence.
We will come back more often - that is for sure!!!
Great ambience. Delicious food and great wine and cocktails. Great for a girls night out too
Great in every aspect. Will be going again.
I couldn't believe that I hadn't heard of this restaurant, it is a hidden gem in every sense of the word its an incredible place with with multiple quaint rooms that each provide an atmosphere of a small dinner party than a restaurant. The food was absolutely incredible, we had a seafood dish a pasta dish with veal in it and a short rib brisket thing that I'm still thinking about five days later LOL. Its a special that is served I believe once a week or so but in all honesty it was better than anything that I've ever had even at the highest end steak houses in Toronto. The staff is really nice and not overbearing, just the right balance of communication and presence to make sure your evening goes comfortably. We had a wonderful bottle of wine and if there was a sofa there I would have probably stuck around longer just to take in the atmosphere. It felt very familiar, very comfortable. We will be going back in the next two weeks
Food was perfect! Highly recommend the rainbow trout. Delicious 😋
We had a great meal at MBD! The service was excellent - attentive and informative - and our meals were delicious. The atmosphere was perfect for my friend and I to catch up on life. It’s great to get out again and awesome to have such a great restaurant right in our neighbourhood, owned and operated by great people.
Food. Was great, service was slow since we had school age grand children with us
Michael's Back Door is a gem! Lovely setting with wonderful food and friendly, professional staff.
Great service, comfortable sitting, good selection of food and tasted great.
Great experience! The service was excellent and the food was so good! Will definitely come back!
You can always count on great food and great service. How else could they be celebrating their 40 year anniversary?
Always a quality meal with good service and reasonably priced wine list.
The Calamari was terrible , was cold and tasted like rubber, it was very disappointing, it was my birthday and I expected better food for the price. The pasta and desert was good though
Great service, great ambience created a special evening cekebration
Outstanding food and service! Possibly the best restaurant in Mississauga
A special date for my husband and I as we have not been out together alone in so long. What a special treat and night.
It was too noisy, food did not meet expectations. Too pricey for what we received. In short, a big disappointment.
Always great food fresh made, staff very friendly attentive, romantic setting or family gathering is perfect
From the moment we arrived, the experience was elevated. Lovely table and ambiance, great and friendly service, tolerance for special asks, and the best gnocchi I've ever eaten outside of Italy!
Our waiter was really personable and attentive. They were implementing COVID precautions but doing their best to offer a good experience and superior food. I had the lamb ragout risotta which was wonderful. The B52 cheesecake was good but we will probably go back to the creme caramel next time ;-)
The cheese board was okay, but the main dishes were very good. The selection was great. I wish our waiter would have kept his mask on though, because he spits when talking. Right over us and the table! 🥴
Fantastic food. Great value for the money. Perfect date night spot.
Micheal’s never disappoints. The food is great, the service is very friendly and knowledgeable and Anthony is always welcoming and accommodating. This is my goto restaurant for any occasion.
We are always greeted with a smile and friendly attitude. The food as always is perfect..
The food was adequate and certainly not in line with the prices. The service was extremely rushed when they appeared with very long delays in between every stage. The noice level was so bad in one area - we asked to be moved but we were put in an area with little to no lighting. We were an after thought. We will not be back.
Food was good, they checked for vaccine passport and Id. However during as pandemic we were surprised that they put everyone close together in one room all tables used and not 6 feet apart. They had another room with many tables and no one in there. We felt that they could have spaced people out to the empty room and kept social distancing in check. Otherwise the food was good as always.
Food quality, service and ambiance were great. Prices seem a bit steep.
Food and service was amazing. I tried kangaroo for the first time. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. First class.
There were a couple children running the halls and yelling at full volume. At first we thought were beside a playground or hockey arena. I realize this is on the parents and not the restaurant but it did damper the experience
Friendly service as usually, lovely food. Welcoming hosts.
Nice ambiance. Food had nice presentation and was reasonably tasty, but not delicious. Portions were small.
Amazing service and quiet ambiance. Our waiter Carlos was the best!
Just fantastic! The food remains the same quality as before the pandemic. Staff are just joyous
