We were visiting Toronto for the weekend and tried Michael's. Excellent attentive service. We had the dry aged ribery that was the best stake I've had at any restaurant. The chopped salad was delicious. Good atmosphere, piano music and service.

Our Somali was extremely helpful, he picked the perfect wine for dinner.
Our waiter was terrific, everyone was polite, and super nice.

Outstanding steak selection. Waiter very accommodating and quick with good answers to our questions. Other staff stopped by our table to assure our satisfaction and were most willing to chat once they determined our interest in doing so.

Arrived early for reservation and could have been seated immediately. Decided to have a drink at the bar. Bartenders could not have been better. Wanted something different so tried one of their special cocktails (Sunset Margarita), fantastic. Piano player was very good. Saw owner or manager working with rhe staff in a super positive manner. There is a high level of engagement and attention to detail here. Once we were seated, we enjoyed a complimentary appetizer (crispy artichoke hearts) and warm bread. This was followed by two of the best steaks and lobster paired with some incredible garlic mashers and sautéed zucchini. Unfortunately, no room for dessert but I'm sure it would not have disappointed. Service was excellent throughout the evening. Definitely coming back the next time we're in Toronto.

I literally have no complaints. None. All the food was terrific and the staff informative, respectful and a true please to interact with. In very fine print I would say that the live music (for a saturday night) should stay later then 10:30pm.

Very high end atmosphere, incredible food and outstanding service. The artichoke based amuse bouche was to die for. I travel globally and dine at some of the finest restaurants in the world. Michael's on Simcoe is second to none.

The food was awesome!!!! The service was ultra slow and we waited for our food for more than 1 hour after ordering. The meat cuts and quality was WOW! Too bad the service ruined it.

My husband and I really enjoyed Michael’s - great ambience, waitstaff and meal ( we decided to avoid steaks). It was a bit hot where we were seated. The best part of our experience was the first class service. Will return and try a steak 🤗

The food was phenomenal! The server was very knowledgeable and the steaks were both flavorful and perfectly cooked. Sides were just as tasty as was the dessert.

My only complaint would be that it was a bit warm in the restaurant itself.

Exceptional service. Manager was so engaged and nice. Provided a complementary little app to my husband and I. Food was good, cooked perfectly. We got pasta as an app that we split and two steaks with fries on the side. It was delicious. Steak was cooked perfect! We felt like steak was good but for the value and taste the classic bolognese was just absolutely delicious. The pasta was not overly expensive and it was well worth the amount paid. Would recommend for a nice dinner. We celebrated our 5 year anniversary, would have made an even better experience, if asked what we were celebrating!

Thoroughly enjoyed our three courses at Michael's. The Kobe tenderloin was wonderful. A minor mistake was quickly and easily sorted, the emphasis was on making sure we were happy with everything. Service was professional and friendly. The Espresso martini was a new and delightful experience.

Very good choice for steak. Wine was perfect with good selection and good advise.
The service was outstanding. The piano was just perfect. The deco is just great.

Very good evening with the family and you can go with children without any problem and if you want to go in lovers that's fine too.

Great restaurant...very clearly a special occasion place...very expensive but the service and food lives up to it. Everything tasted great, even the drinks.
The steaks are broken down by region they are from, and size. The waiter will explain how the environment and diet affects the flavor of the meat.
A very nice place for a very good meal.
The only disappointment...the Dover Sole was not finished table side. Flavor was on point, but always enjoy the finish at the table.

We were in Toronto visiting & looking for something special downtown for four of us on a Sunday night. Michael’s fit the bill!
Although a basement restaurant the decor & fireplace had a modern upscale feel.
Server staff wa excellent & had fun with us
We all had different steaks & cooking levels & everyone was pleased. Wine / cocktails hit mark. Worth the price of an upscale dinner.
There were about 9 tables filled when we were there so my estimate of noise level as low might be the less filled Sunday. Recommend for those looking for upper end steakhouse experience. Am not a fan of dark, classic steakhouses so please consider as reference point

I loved everything at Michael's except for the fact that it felt like our dinner was really rushed. We got each course right after another with virtually no break in between. I had to ask the waitress to give us a 10min break after our steak before she brought out our desserts. She was very nice about it once I said something, but their timing was definitely off in terms of making us feel like we were being rushed through our dinner. We felt like we couldn't sit there and peacefully enjoy the live music with our dinner.

Their service is unparalleled...the food is unbelievable and the folks operating the restaurant (bar staff all the way to management) made the experience worth every penny. I will for sure take a trip back and would 100% recommend it to strangers and friends alike.
