The food is fabulous, and the dishes are creative - everything from appetizers to mains to dessert. The staff is extremely well trained, and friendly and completely attentive. The music is upbeat, but not overbearing. Yes, it's pricey, but it's worth every penny. A great place.

A great restaurant that just happens to be kosher. Food is outstanding. Service is good. It's always busy and the vibe is good. It's not trendy but it's just a great place to eat

The service and the food were outstanding. The noise is a little loud but not terrible. I know kosher restaurants are expensive, especially the upscale meat and steak places but to charge $12-$19 for a side dish because your $69 steak does not come with a side dish is getting a little crazy. I highly recommend Mike's Bistro, I had the lamb riblets and my wife had the gnocchi as an appetizer and they were great. My wife had the strip steak and I had the dry aged steak and both were cooked to perfection. Ignore the prices (maybe just once) and go enjoy Mike's restaurant.

Food is good, very expensive, small portions and you need to order several things just to satiate yourself. For the price , there should be more food, the main is just a big appetizer.

I really enjoyed the food but for lunch they don’t let you order anything on top of the pre fix price which is ridiculous when we went to spend more money. Dinner we had party of 8 have to order apps & dinner same time to be rushed out again we want order relax spend money so we won’t be back food is great but the rules are just ridiculous.

This place serves the best kosher steak in New York. You can find kosher places with a more elegant atmosphere, such as Reserve Cut, but the food here can't be beat.

I’m aware that when we dine out at a steak restaurant prices are gonna be high.
But when I ask for a glass of Pinot Grigio and it costs $16?
When I ask for bread they give us a tiny piece in a small plate ?
When I ask for the steak to be butterflied I am given a stare down “I’ll see what the chef says”. Ok.
Then rather than letting me dictate the tip, nope-18%.
Again I’m aware that this exists and I shouldn’t be shocked by it. And more importantly the place was jammed.. maybe it’s just me. I’m a value person. I don’t like being insulted.
Two rib steaks, French onion soup, gnocchi, two wines and one apricot sour, $298. Hmm....

I ordered “saffron braised chicken” for $44.99 and received 2 inferior cuts of chicken (skin on), covered with a mysterious brown sauce not indicating saffron. Too expensive to actually use, I suppose. Best for this kind of place is to order steak and hope for the best.

we got there and one of our party was not able to make it and they kindly gave us a table with the extra seat just in case he was going to show up. the service was great and well informed. the food was delicious and creative and cooked perfectly. i had a first cut veal with sweet potato fritters and my father had edamame and a wonderful duck dish. i tried a little of both of his as well and they were very good as well. will definitely go again. my first visit since they moved and their new size has not dampened the quality of the food.

We went because we had a gift certificate. We were so pleased and would definitely go back! Our waiter Javier made great suggestions and was very helpful. Food was amazing. Kind of pricey, but worth it for a special night out. Parking was easy too. Highly recommend

We were really looking forward to a nice night out. We had 6:30 reservations. When we got there (6:38) the lady told us "We will need your table back at 8:00". We were very much bothered by this concept. Instead of just relaxing and enjoying the delicious food, we kept looking at our watches making sure we weren't overstaying our visit. it was also very noisy. I would give it a 1 star for this craziness but the food was really good. Unfortunately we probably will never be going back there. The service and the noise level don't match the food and prices.

The steak is absolutely amazing however the appetizers are really not good and overpriced. If they can improve on the appetizers it would be great.
