This is not cheap but worth every penny. Service was excellent. Try to come a little early so you get the best service.

We were slightly forgotten about in the beginning of our meal. The table next to us was loud. However, our server was wonderful and curtious. The food was outstanding.

Great food. Really faultless.

However it’s expensive and end up costing $120 per person for a main and a side each (and a shared glass of wine) plus tips

Every item was perfectly prepared. Exquisite smoked rack of veal. Delicious gnocchi with assorted mushrooms. Great non-dairy cappuccino, actually better than dairy and a great chocolate pudding mousse dessert. Price was rather higher but worth it for the quality and taste.

We love Mike's and try to have at least one meal whenever we are in NYC. It was a great place to meet our two oldest grandsons and their ladies. Good food, lots of laughing and talk, all accompanied by excellent unobtrusive service. Best damn kosher steakhouse in NYC.

Thank you Mike's staff for a wonderful memorable evening.

The wait staff couldn’t do enough for us. Food was delicious as always. Tables are not on top of one another so you can talk.

We had a wonderful experience. The food was outstanding and the menu was impressively varied. The soft background music enhanced the ambiance well beyond the typical high end kosher restaurant. Mike himself spent time with us to share cooking insights. The portions were generous but nor overwhelming. Overall it was a first rate restaurant dining experience.

Very expensive! Very good! One of the top kosher places in NYC, and highly regarded even by people who don't keep kosher.

The gnocchi appetizer is superb!

The food is quite good, though it was not as good on this past visit as it has been in the past. That being said, it is expensive, especially the lunch.

Mike’s is always a guaranteed great meal! On this night we enjoyed the gnocchi....it was melt in your mouth amazing. Spaghetti with crispy eggplant and cashew ricotta (yumm!!) my husband said that it was one of the best steaks he has ever had!! We will definitely be back!

I took my son out for a special celebratory dinner. I reviewed the menu on-line before going and knew that it was pricey but thought it would be well worth it if the food was heavenly. Sadly, it was not. The gnocchi was good but only good. The pulled beef taquito was a minuscule amount for a $25 appetizer and was just average. The 16 oz dry aged boneless rib steak was so fatty that after cutting off all the globules of fat I was left with a rather small unremarkable expensive steak. The blackened crispy exterior was nice. I know that short ribs are very high in fat but these were the fattiest short ribs I ever had. A little less fat would have been nice. Felt like we ordered plates of fat instead of meat. For dessert we got the chocolate mousse and it was very good. However, we only chose the mousse because there is no written dessert menu and the waiter had such a thick accent that when he quickly ran through the available dessert items we could hardly understand our choices. I asked him to repeat the selections, but it did not help. Instead of embarrassing him and asking for someone else to recite the dessert choices a third time, we simply ordered one of the few items that we were able to understand. I really wanted the evening to be a special treat for my son and sadly it was not that special. Ending on a good note - the staff was attentive and we were not rushed.

Every item we ordered was simply above and beyond our expectations, but the steak special for two (sorry, can't remember which cut) was by far the best meat we've ever had in NYC. Truly a meal to remember! Service was outstanding. All in all, a five-star experience!

This is our favourite restaurant in New York and try to visit when visiting from the UK.
This was a special occasion for my sister who lives in USA

Such a great place, amazing food, great service and ambience but a tad expensive even at this level

The evening s a complete experience not just a meal
Well done
Look forward to returning some time
Highly recommended

Great food! perfectly cooked ribeye and short ribs. Amazing desert-get the lemon/coconut dish-we had two of them-one of the best deserts we've had in a long time. We also had a great server, can't remember his name. Just wish Kosher food didn't have to cost so much. We'll be back!

The food is consistently delicious. Mike’s short ribs got raving reviews as the best ever!

The place is great. The food, the service, etc. Then again, paying $22 for kasha seems a bit overpriced.

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
