The food took approx 45 to 50 minutes to get to the table. It was not crowded and we were waiting for breakfast items and salads. The manager did not come over until we requested him. To my embarrassment I was the one who recommended my favorite place to others
Great food and service
I've been coming here for many years. I haven't been here for a while though. It seems like they've tried to upscale the restaurant from what it used to be. Problem is that the prices are very high and the portions very small for the area. I don't feel the same value as I used to. And the mashed potatoes came out cold. When you're paying $35 for an entree, the food should be warm and not have to be sent back.
Food was very good, service was very efficient. Michael’s is consistently good and dependable. Nice place to have a get together lunch with friends.
Although the food was well prepared, we waited 1 hour and 20 minutes to be served after placing our order. Not a pleasant experience. We noticed other tables complaining of the same problem.
I don’t frequent Michael’s as often as I’d like but suffice it to say, it is almost always a wonderful dining experience. This visit was as expected, good service and delicious food. Be back again, hopefully soon!
We were entertaining out of town guests. The service was very friendly and our waitress, Mary was really nice. Would have like "more" vegetables (potatoes and green beans)
Had rice pudding for dessert and it was cold and "soupy' Would have like warm and thicker.
Had the filet mignon and it was fantastic! Done to perfection and very tender!
Great food, ambience & customer service...we will be returning soon with friends.
My son and I greatly enjoyed the Fathers Day brunch this week, and decided to sample the oysters, eggs, bacon, fruit, ribs, and dessert from a very wide variety of options. We were delighted to stay up to date with the World Cup and US Open golf results that were visible from many seats. Michael's is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to eat in the Baltimore area and I will be back soon.
We had a wonderful Father's Day breakfast. They have a great breakfast menu, the french toast is outstanding! The service, atmosphere, and food are all very good.
The general manager Josh and the maitre d are phenomenal. They give great service whenever we visit Michael's. They have a wonderful staff and the food is always superb.
Michael's is a comfortable and familiar place. We tend to go on Thursdays which is prime rib night. We both ordered the prime rib and enjoyed it. The meat was of high quality and cooked as we had ordered it, This is a place for predictable comfort food but what it does, it does well.
I had lunch with a friend, with an 11:45 appointment. The atmosphere was quite pleasant initially, but with the lunchtime crowd the restaurant became noisy and conversation was difficult. The food was excellent, and our server was attentive and pleasant.
Food is always excellent Michael’s. Go early because it gets crowded. Great place to meet friends for drinks. The night we were there was my mother‘s 92nd birthday. Handicapped access was excellent.
I think our waiter was knew that night. He seemed like he was terrified. But overall the service was good
My friends burger was to well cooked. He usually his meat red. Other wise it was good
Michael's is always consistently very good for lunch and dinner. We dine there quite often.
Nice variety of choices on the menu. Waitress was wonderful. Service excellent. There is complimentary valet parking.
Another excellent experience at Michael’s. Servers are always great....efficient, friendly and professional.
Birthday dessert is a nice touch.
The food was good, but not great. The quality of the food was good, but the flavor was lacking. Disappointed with the $12.00 shrimp. I had them in the past and they were succulent. Last visit, they were rubbery and flavorless. The service made up for what was lacking with the food. I have had good past experiences so I would definitely give this site another shot to wow me. Overall, an okay dinning experience.
This is one of our "go to" restaurants for Thursday "girl's nite out." Everyone is friendly and the food is very good with lots of choices.
excellent food and service ! Had a great night out !
Great food but a little overpriced
Always enjoyable. Great service. Food is consistent
Michael's has great food. The cream of crab soup is the best around, but there are many good items on the menu.
Haven’t been here is quite a few years.
Went for the Sunday lobster special. Excellent value!
Service was good and attentive.
Appetizer was very good.
Will be back!
The staff was friendly and helpful. The food is outstanding. I highly recommend Michael’s Cafe for any occasion. I can’t wait for my next visit.
Waited more than 20 minutes for our table (a booth). When finally seated saw that there were plenty of empty (non-booth tables). Hadn't requested the booth, so not sure why the option was to make us wait rather than seat us promptly.
Fun brunch spot with reasonable bottomless mimosas! The food is consistently good, and the environment in the bar/patio area is open and bright.
TERRIBLE!! Service was slow and terrible. Ordered food and came out wrong and the server said that she knew it was wrong but still brought it out to table
I hadn't been to Michael's for a while, but it turned out to be every bit as good as I remembered it. An old friend from college and I have lunch occasionally, and we picked Michaels because it is about half-way between our homes--mine in Bel Air, hers in Ellicott City. I'm sure we'll do it again. Food was wonderful (soft shell crabs, yum) delightful waitress, comfortable in every way. Thanks!
A person in the private room next to my table threw a fit, yelling and pounding the table for 30 minutes. Management apparently did not eject her from restaurant. Had to move to another table. Management did not apologize to me for the disturbance and did not offer a discount on the meals.
The prices have increased to point it is no longer a good value.
Service from waitress was good
Outstanding food, excellent service. Just a great place!!
I haven't been to Michael's in years! We met friends there recently and had a wonderful time. We ordered lots of wonderful appetizers and everyone was fantastic! We were quite full and ordered single crab cakes, crab and lobster cakes and shrimp salad and all were wonderful!
My mother and I found ourselves here after having facials at a spa not far from the restaurant as a part of the Mothers Day weekend on Saturday, May 12. I booked reservations for 1:00, but arrived 45 minutes early and was seating with no problem. But I am glad we booked reservations because by noon that place was packed and I can see why. The food and service was very good and they have a varied menu, especially during their brunch time. I will definitely return and eat outside again.
The atmosphere is great. Dined on the new patio area. The service was bizarre. Saw the appetizers come out. Had to waive them down. Then when the main course came out. Watched them take back inside because they didn't know where to deliver it. Food was just ok. Better places in the area.
Waiter was very nice but had to go back to kitchen to get answers to our questions. Ordered fresh rockfish with a teriyaki glaze. They poured the glaze over the fish like it was gravy. It destroyed the taste of the fish. The portion of the fish was quite small. Also had crab cakes and strip steak. Steak was very good and crab cake was good but I’ve had better. The rolls they served were fabulous as were the cocktails. I’ll probably try the restaurant again.
Excellent service from Keith. Very dependable restaurant. The food is always fresh and delicious.
Food was excellent, prices are not bad, service at the bar was top notch, but after we sat down waitress had us sit for 15-20 min before taking our drink order, didn't check after food came. Food however was excellent, I had the Rockfish perfectly cooked. Next time I'll sit at the bar and eat.
The turkey sandwhich was either delli turkey or pulled turkey. I chose pulled turkey Wrong choice. It was tough and dry
