Excellent food, great choice, friendly waiters... service was second to none. They were also very accommodating with our various requests.
We look forward to visiting again next time we are in Manhattan.

Went here for the first time for my girlfriend’s birthday. I was told so much about this place that it had the best steak. We ordered the crescent steak which was so lean and definitely was the most tastiest steak I ever had.

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.

Mike's food is as good as it gets for Kosher diners. But as noteworthy as the food is, the exorbitant prices ($76 for lamb chops!) leave a less pleasant taste. If you aren't uber-wealthy or have access to an expense account, you can only consider Mike's for special occasions.

We came to Mike's Bistro as per a recommendation of a friend. The food was good but not particularly better than other steak houses in the area and was much more expensive. The parking around the restaurant was expensive. Didn't seem worth it compared to ETC in Teaneck.

The food was really very well done. The experience was a sad one. Once the waiter realized we were not Jewish he decided he didn't want to serve us and handed us off into the extremely capable hands of an exceptional non Jewish waiter. The looks from the other clientele went on throughout the entire meal, making me reflect on what generations before me had to endure. It was a sobering experience.

SERVICE WAS AMAZING. The only thing as good as the service was EVERYTHING - this was a perfect meal. When asked about the beer, the server who did not know asked one of the other servers who had tasted the beer and his review was spot on and helpful. The fact that she did not just answer was great! Everything about the meal was as perfect as I have ever experienced. Recommend 100%

Excellent, overall.

But much too noisy for an important lunch business meeting. Can this be dampened?

Also, though lunch is prix fixe, there needs to be some flexibility. Would have preferred large salad instead of soup (which I cannot have).

Otherwise, very nice!
