Leslie the hostess is the nicest most accommodating person. The food is always spot on delicious and the dirty martinis can’t be beat. I Love Michael’s
We had our Christmas lunch at Michael's and everything was perfect from the wait staff to the food.
I have to say how disappointed I was with my entree- short ribs. We began with the hot crab dip - which was quite good, a bit too cheesy but tasty. I had been looking forward to the short ribs all day long. They were fall off the bone tender, as you would expect. The only problem was that they really had no taste. Disappointed
I came for breakfast. I had a Bloody Mary, half dozen Blue Point oysters, Steak, Eggs and Potatoes. The food was very tasty and reasonably priced.
Gary, thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. We are thrilled you enjoyed your brunch! We hope to see you again soon.
Excellent food and great service!
Thank you very much! We hope to see you again soon.
Best crab cakes anywhere. Place as become somewhat of a factory setting. Lost some ambience. Service was good. A little pricey.
Tuna steak special with wasabi infused mashed potatoes was excellent. Perfectly cooked. Service was good too.
Thank you very much for the wonderful feedback! We hope to see you again soon.
The waiter was very attentive.
The food was mediocre.
I like my hot foods hot. The soup was great, the fries were cold. The waiter asked if I wanted more fries, but I declined.The seafood club was not good. It may have been because of the type of bread we chose.
We treated friends to dinner for their retirement and they consumed their meals. They did not indicate any issues.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. We are very sorry that your fries were served cold. We are glad you and your guests were able to enjoy the rest of your evening with us. We hope to see you again soon.
We have been patrons of Michael's Cafe for over 20 years and can't remember it falling so low relative to the food and value. One of us ordered the red snapper and when it arrived it barely resembled a piece of fish. ( had to send it back) and order the old standby delicious crab cake) which fortunately the current chef of the past 2 years has not had the opportunity to change and thus, ruin. We were served by a gal by the name of Lydia who was more than attentive and tried her best to make us happy. We continue, at this point, to try to be loyal, but can only be happy with the crab cake and lobster on Sunday nights. Other than that, unless there is a major change in the kitchen, we will be taking our patronage elsewhere.
P. S. We loved the baked potato of the past and miss it. It just seemed to go with almost every meal!
Sandy, we are very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience at our restaurant. our very talented chef works extremely hard to ensure that we keep our amazing classics and incorporate new delicious dishes. As for your red snapper, we do serve all of our fish with the skin on, which we have done for years. As a restaurant that has been around for years we love to keep the classics but also have to grow with the culinary trends. We appreciate your years of patronizing our establishment.
Great place to eat. Good food, excellent service.
Jean, thank you very much for taking the time to let us know about your experience. We are thrilled you enjoyed everything. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
$53 is too much for steak and cake without a single side item...
Our go to order for a light dinner has always been the tuna tartare. Well, no more. Now it’s three slivers of tuna covered in mint leaves, and that’s it. We will find elsewhere for tuna.
We are very sorry that you did not enjoy our new Tuna Crudo appetizer. We seasonally like to switch up a new items on our menu. In addition to having the Tuna Crudo appetizer we also offer Bigeye Tuna as an entree cooked to you preference with a choice of two sides.
Nice for a quick stop traveling between Baltimore and Pennsylvania.
$43.00 NY Strip steak was too tough and could not be eaten. Although it was compped it ruined the experience.
We are very sorry to hear about your NY strip. We work very hard to ensure we are bringing in the best quality of prime steaks. We will speak to our chefs to ensure this does not happen again.
My crab cake was not broiled long enough. Also. We were seated not in a good spot very close to lady room. And there were other table to put us
Sharon, thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. We are extremely sorry that your crab cake was not cooked to your liking and that you were seated to closely to the restrooms. We will speak to our chef to ensure they are cooking our famous crab cakes fully so this does not happen again. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we hope to see you again soon.
I had a very nice birthday lunch with a dear friend
Helen, thank you for your kind feedback! Thank you for celebrating with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Great restaurant..... Look forward to dinner again.. Great food and atmosphere!
Thank you for taking the time to write such wonderful feedback! We hope to see you again soon!
Thought the Filet and Crab Cake was too expensive - most nice restaurants priced $10 lower with demi-glaze on steak which did not exist. Menu was difficult - not explaining what some dishes actually were; i.e. Porterhouse would incline to think as steak and it was not. Cauiflower Steak - had no idea what it was - had to ask. Very noisy so for fine dining not acceptable - should be more relaxing. Will not return.
Gary, we are sorry about the confusion on our menu. We use Market Price for of our prime steaks because we only bring in the best prime steaks which means there may be change in the pricing depending on the product we are bringing in. We are sorry for the confusion on the porterhouse- we do have it labeled as a pork porterhouse to help with the confusion from our guests. We apologize about the confusion and hope to see you again in the future.
Haven't been to Michael's in quite some time. The new bar and dining area is very nice with a modern touch. Had a few TV's to catch some snipets of the game and the menu was very nice with great service from the waiter. Will def be going back.
Dan, thank you for taking the time to write such wonderful feedback! We love our indoor patio for the more modern feel or our original bar for the more "old school" feel! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
The quality of the food has declined in the past year or so. BRING BACK THOSE DELICIOUS BAKED POTOTAES,
Sandy, we are very sorry that your meal was not up to our typical standards. We hope to see you again soon to show you we are the amazing restaurant that has been around for over 35 years.
We love this place! We live in Virginia but grew up in the Lutherville Timonium area. Any time we are here to visit it is a must to get a crab cake at Michael's. Some of the best we have ever had. Have never had a bad meal here. Had a family party in May and rented out the bar area. The service , ambiance and food were outstanding. Highly recommend Michael's Café!
Robert, Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience with us. We are thrilled you enjoyed everything, especially our famous crab cakes! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great atmosphere, excellent crab cakes, and terrific service is exactly why I have been coming here for 35 years!
Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a fantastic review! We are famous for our family secret crab cake recipe and we are so happy we didn't disappoint! We hope to see you again soon!
Am very disappointed at your not putting prices on items like filets, as I was shocked at a $39 price on a tiny piece of tenderloin. Big turn-off! Unlike seafood, beef prices don’t vary appreciably.
We are very sorry with the shock when the bill arrived at the table. We do have all of our Prime steaks labeled Market Price on our menu. We pride ourselves on bringing in the best product, so in this case our prime select steaks. The prices for these products do vary depending on what the farm is marketing them as when we order. We absolutely understand your frustration and we will speak to our server staff to ensure that our guests are made aware prior to ordering.
Great crab Cakes!
We LOVE our famous crab cakes! We hope to see you again soon.
We had the fried green tomatoes, the breading tasted like flour, and we had steamed clams and unfortunately 2 from our order were inedible. Drinks were way over priced. More than likely will not return.
Lisa, we are very sorry you did not have an enjoyable experience with us. We will talk to our chefs to ensure that our clams and fried green tomato stack come out properly. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and we hope you visit us again.
Very enjoyable and delicious meal
Thank you very much! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Food was delicious. Very nice wait staff.
Thank you very much! We hope to see you again soon!
Rye bread was stale for the sandwich, server was pleasant but not attentive - no one to bring attention to the situation!
We are very sorry to hear about your experience with us. We will talk to our chefs to ensure the bread does not go out stale again. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we hope to see you again.
Great food, amazing staff, friendly atmosphere!
Thank you very much! We hope to see you again soon!
Went for brunch and it was fantastic as always
Thank you very much! We hope to see you again soon!
Good food as always. Server was great
Phyl, thank you for your kind words! We hope to see you again soon!
The chicken francaise dish was tasty but should be more tender. Thinner noodles or flavored rice with herbs would accommodate the dish better. The rockfish was very good, cooked just right. Rice was passable but again adding herbs, pehaps thyme and parsley would would make the total diish cohesive.
Sandra, thank you for taking the time to let us know about experience! We appreciate your feedback and will show our chef to ensure all dishes are top notch. Thank you again.
Great food and great service as always! Our server was very friendly and helpful.
Rick, thank you very much for taking the time to let us know about your experience! We are so thrilled to hear that service is consistently top notch when you dine! We hope to see you again soon.
Good food and excellent server (Alan)
John, thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience! We hope to see you again soon.
This was our second time here first time for brunch. Everything was good minus the breakfast potatoes. My wife said most of it was overdone to burned. Everything else was great. Our server John C. was great and friendly.
Mike, thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. We will speak to the chef about our home fries. John will be very excited to hear your amazing feedback on his service! We hope to see you again soon.
Food was amazing! Had the lobster roll and it was better than the ones I had in Maine. Highly recommend this restaurant!
June, thank you very much for the amazing feedback! What a compliment! We hope to see you again soon.
Dated, dark and dingy. The photos are of the ‘patio’ bar area, the rest of the restaurant is nothing like the photos. We went for dinner, it was very dark in the dining room, could barely see in front of me once it was dark outside. The chair seats were worn, the carpet was dingy (carpet in a dining room grosses me out honestly) and it was very loud. Disappointing food - my boyfriend got the pepperoni flatbread, it was under cooked and floppy. Our waiter was quick and helpful at first, but seemed to get frazzled as the restaurant got more busy. The wine selection read like the grocery store shelf, nothing I couldn’t buy around the corner. Overall did not meet the expectations I had when I booked the reservation, would not recommend to anyone expecting modern, clean decor or fine dining.
We are very sorry you did not enjoy your experience with us. As a restaurant that has been around for over 35 years we would like to note our establishment has an array of decor that makes us a staple in the neighborhood. We have multiple different rooms that offer different levels of ambience. We do apologize that your meal was not up to par and service lacking. We will speak to our chefs and service staff to ensure that does not happen again.
I’ve not been to Michaels in several years. I was very glad that we chose to come here again. I was surprised what a good time we had. The food itself was Delicious. My octopus appetizer was then usually large portion and was Expertly prepared. My mother-in-law who considers herself a connoisseur of crabcakes found her crabcake to be delicious.
The enjoyment of our meal was increased by our excellent server Mary. She was extremely pleasant and efficient. Next time I visit will be in the near future. Also I will also make every effort to get a table that Mary serves at as she definitely increased the enjoyment of our meal.
Eddie, thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. Mary has working with us for over 14 years and is an outstanding server! We are so happy she took great care of you! We are known for our seafood dishes, especially our crab cakes so we are so happy we did not disappoint! We hope to see you again soon.
I visit Michael's quite often. What can I say, Michael's never disappoints.
Rodney, thank you for your amazing review! We look forward to seeing you soon!
In my opinion, Michael's has the best crabcakes in Baltimoe! Service is always top notch and food always delicious! We love this place.
Thank you very much for your outstanding feedback! We are thrilled you enjoyed our famous crab cakes! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
