The food was absolutely delicious, the service was excellent, and the ambience was delightful, but there were two serious shortcomings. First, the portions were tiny, particularly relative to the prices. The cote de boeuf for two ($138) would have been a good portion for one person. Second, the rack of lamb is lamb chops. A first-class chef should know the difference.

Everything on the pre-fixe menu is prepared the same (bed of broccolini, mashed potatoes) and the food was very salty. All of us had the same issue -- almost inedibly salty and I like salty food. Servers were very kind & attentive but they didn't describe the food or prep well even when asked. There were no starter options and only two dessert options. For $75 a person, I would have also expected to be asked if we wanted tea or coffee ( no one asked). Venue is great for a business lunch but the price & food quality were a big disappointment.

Mike's bistro is probably the best kosher steak house in nyc maybe even in the whole world everything in they serve is absolutely delicious. The only problem with the food is it's loaded with oil even when not necessary for example the salads and veggies, they are soaked in oil. The Steaks as well have too much oil since they anyway contain a lot of fat I don't understand why they have to bathe in oil.
The next thing I didn't like is the ambiance, the place is not as high class as the food.
(Reserve cut is much more upscale in style, and ambiance which you might consider if you are going on a romantic date or birthday, they too have really good food).
The price is really high and on some items it's just outrageous (don't get wine since you'll get a shot glass of it and pay 22 bucks).
The music is weird in there you may not notice it but I have been there now a couple of times over 4 years and it's always the same and not in a good setting it does not synch with the place.
I do recommend this place if you wanna have the best steak of your life(I had the 3 week aged steak for 140$), not the best time though. If you're looking for great food and ambiance go to reserve cut the atmosphere is very upscale and relaxing.

Had a great meal at Mike's. The steak was perfectly done and the French Onion Soup was excellent. Service was spectaular and Mike stopped by to say hello (and compliment us on the soup order)! Expensive, but that is what it is. An excellent meal.

The food here is outstanding. This is top of the line kosher cuisine. The dishes are creative and cooked to perfection. Friendly, attentive service, elegant surroundings. Pricey, but worth every cent. This time around we had Mike's cauliflower bisque and duck with raspberry sauce and red cabbage, with yam fritters on the side. Everything was amazing and delicious. Thanks Mike. We'll be back.

Simply, the best! Nobody comes close for great food, elegant setting and professional service. Mike is the real deal, a CIA trained chef who paid his dues and the food reflects it. He makes the rounds checking on the tables and it's nice to talk to him especially as he is he's so passionate about his food.

excellent food, comfortable environment, conveniently located and Glatt Kosher. This made it a wonderful find for my Jewish guest, but the menu, recipes and service were suitable for the most sophisticated and unrestricted gourmet. Mostly in the Italian style, the dishes were all out of the ordinary but very well prepared and presented.

Some of the food was very good (the meat entrees), but I had a fish entrée for which i didn't particularly care. Also, a guy at the next table was puffing on an e-cigarette all through the meal, which i found annoying.

Very expensive though food was well and thoughtfully prepared. Paid almost the same for a modest dinner for 3 with just one drink than a recent dinner for 8 with multiple drinks for each person at a high end chophouse! Should be upgraded to the next $$$ level.
