Michael's is an up-and-coming dining experience. The atmosphere was great. The live band was what we wanted. The service was exceptional. Shout out to our server Alaina B. for taking really good care of us. We will be back.

Add seasoning to the fried chicken and training for your staff. Everything else is roses.

Great ambiance, great music, classy crowd.
I ordered Cornish he. And it was a little overdone/tough on bottom side.
But other than that it was great!
Recommend a little dessert for birthday guests!

Our waiter was courteous and repeatedly apologized for the extraordinary delay in receiving our food. We both ordered chicken and waffles and it took approximately an hour to receive our food. Additionally the receipt of two partial chicken wings with the order seemed disproportionate to the price Additionally, We were highly disappointed and it is unlikely we will make a return visit. The other diners seemed similarly disappointed. The one positive note was our waiter. He did his best to make our visit enjoyable and to compensate for the long wait. However since he was not the cook the challenge was beyond his capabilities. I must also note the restaurant only had a few diners so the delays can’t be attributed to crowd size

Worst service I’ve ever experienced in my lifetime.! Ordered the steak and egg, steak was supposed to be medium came out burnt. Receive one egg on the menu it states two eggs. I was the second group in the restaurant waited 61 minutes for food to come out. As a restaurant Guru, I wanted to cater to all black restaurants because I’m black! Order drinks 45 minutes before we received our drinks. Little FYI if you have every server dropping off food instead of their own tables only you probably can increase your service times and ticket times. All servers touch the table regardless we’re not in the nostalgia days so you need to catch up with the new millennium speed your ticket times up great atmosphere but won’t be returning. Another tip teacher managers had to be cognizant of what’s going on in your restaurant I would generally say 80% of the people were unhappy yes 80%. We were there which was two hours. After hour and 45 minutes call the general manager out to speak to us. Great concept poor service will kill you every time!
I could clean up and fix your concept in one day increase your service create better food presentation! I am done talking about your concept I wish you guys good luck in the future.

PS: The general manager God bless her soul, pay for ours food, As a business owner that’s the first thing management do that doesn’t solve the problem. We did not want any free hand out what I want it was good service in a black restaurant.

This were our second time visiting Michael's of Las Colinas. This place is that could have great potential when they have hired enough staff, I definitely will not give up on them 😀. My only complaint, maybe question would be more appropriate, I ordered the blackened Salmon, man for the price, it was so tiny. I thought they made a mistake 🤔, I want order it again unless it matures 🤣🤣. It was just okay. I can truly say both times we have gone, hubby and I have been pleasantly surprised that the staff have been phenomenal in making sure we were okay. My suggestion is that they do a better presentation with the blackened Salmon the dish is not one that was impressive at all, which is a favorite of mine. Oh by the vegetables are all cooked with pork 🤮. This needs to maybe change, non pork eaters loves vegetables. We will definitely be back, I love this place. People don't give up on them ,give them your constructive feedback and hope they will take each of our comments at only sharing with them on what the customer would like to change. #wesupportourblackownedbusiness❤🙏🏽👏🏾💪🏾

Didn’t seems as though they were prepared to start service at the time of my reservation which was 11:30 am. Our drink order took along time to arrive at our table. Side dishes were cold.

They didn’t have the greater selection of foods on the menu & the server didn’t know that. No Live music like the advertisement states & the server didn’t support the owner of the restaurant.

Myself and a coworker went after work, we purposely didn’t eat all day in preparation for the food and we were sadly disappointed, Appetizers were lemon pepper wings and fried green tomatoes, the wings were good however the tomatoes were disappointing, they were gummy and didn’t have any flavor. I ordered the ribeye, mashed potatoes and greens, my steak came rare and I ordered medium well, the mashed potatoes lack flavor and the greens had too much vinegar. My coworker got fried catfish, mac and cheese and French fries, the catfish was fishy, the Mac and cheese was not baked as stated and tasted like artificial cheese. It’s only been open for over a month, so hopefully it gets better

This was my first time visiting, of course I went to hear Martha Burks, the food was good, could have been hotter, it was just warm. Our waitress was so sweet and attentive to our needs. We will definitely be visiting again soon. Oh by the way you don't have to feel rushed to leave like other establishments, I want put them on blast.

It was my first visit. I did not know that the menu was not available. It was very limited and I don’t eat waffles. I tried to get the chicken only — but no sides available besides waffles. It was not what I expected at all. But for the first time, it just wasn’t what I’m used to in Las Colinas. I’ve lived here for some time and expected something upscale - not just upscale pricing.

I get it. It’s a club environment. I’m not sure if I will try again but it will definitely not be on a Sunday. Wish you success.

I can with me family for myself and my mothers birthday, total party of 12. I scheduled a reservation a day before but when I came up to the restaurant they were not aware of my reservation. From there they were accommodating to the additional people in our party because our first reservation was for 10 people and it ended up being 12. Katrice was attentive however the food came out in waves. A chicken and waffles for some or undercooked, and they ran out of waffle batter and used pancake batter for the waffles which came out and cooked in flat. I ordered the steak and eggs medium for the steak.
The steak however came out medium well too well done both times they redid my meal. Eventually I did not eat at my own birthday dinner. Very disappointed in the service and quality of food, however, the ambience and people in my party kept me in high spirits. Yet I will never be attending this restaurant for a second disappointment.

Made reservations online, got to the establishment and they did not have any seating for my guests. The manager argued with me and one of my guests. No chairs to sit at the bar, We waited on drink order, which never came, Finally left the establishment one hour later and still could not get seated. It was my birthday and it really started horribly,

The greens were salty and peppery. My $16 salmon was very small and it only came with one side. The mac n cheese was semi-dry, but not bad tasting. It just seemed all really salty to me. It was alright. My drink was very plain looking, no razzle dazzle but decent.

They have to get their recipes together. It just don't make no sense. ( Got me using incorrect English.) They cook their black-eyed peas in a butter sauce. WHO PUTS BUTTER ON BLACK-EYED PEAS!!!!!!!!!!! Cabbage was over seasoned with salt. Yams were under seasoned. Crabcakes had lots of crab but also some minced meat type of shananigans. They were large. Fried green tomatoes--okay. Mozarella sticks, you can find better ones in the freezer section at Piggly Wiggly. 😁 The "Whole Lotta" and the "Cosmo" drinks were amaze-balls. Bottom line, eat before you go. Ham mercy!!!

Michael’s is a really nice establishment. However they were not prepared during our visit. Our reservation was at 11:30 and they didn’t have any of the food that we wanted to try ready. They didn’t have gumbo, pork chops, oxtails etc. All they had to offer was fish and chicken which was a bomber. A manager came out to offer complimentary dessert for our inconvenience, however they also didn’t have any of the dessert we wanted either. They were unprepared and unorganized. The fish that we ordered was average.

I was hopeful that the "Gospel Brunch" would include the music the entire time however I was there for over an hour before they set up. The staff was inattentive. We waited by the host stand without being acknowledged. Once we were seated they provided worn paper menus that needed to be recycled. The food was subpar for the amount of money.

Michael's is a great place for date night. The live entertainment was very good and energetic. As with most places due to Covid, the staffing/service was lacking. Some diners received food very late due to orders from a private party.

Overall, nice place, food is good as well as the entertainment.

This is a nice place to eat at but the only bad experience we had was when we entered the restaurant there was a bad odor. I believe there was an issue with sewage because the smell was really strong when entering the bathroom which could possibly be no fault of the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and the food was very good but the oxtails and the macaroni and cheese looked a little dry so I would recommend serving some type of gravy with the oxtails but the taste was excellent.

My friend and I had reservations for their Sunday Brunch. Noone was at the hostess stand upon our arrival. There was one bar person working, who saw us standing there, but never acknowledged us. Finally, my friend walks over to ask do we seat ourselves? The response was no, someone will be with you. Another lady appears from the back and was asked to seat us; however, she goes back to the kitchen area. Finally, someone seats us. There is only 2 servers in the area. We received the menu, and water after a wait. The server was supposed to return with the drink menu, we never received them. We then decided to leave. A conversation was overheard in passing that other employees were in the back but were not allowed to clock in because the restaurant was not busy enough. Hopefully, business is better on other days. This was not a pleasant experience at all.

My husband and I loved the Sunday Supper singer, and band. They were great, and we had so much fun. They were out of many items on the menu, but the chicken sandwich with fries was pretty good. My husband got the salmon with macaroni and cheese. He loved the salmon, but the mac n cheese was somewhat dry. Overall we had an Amazing time, and will definitely be back.

Michaels is billed as an upscale restaurant with the jazz vibe. From our experience it was like eating dinner in a night club. For drinks I ordered a Manhattan which came out to be an Old fashion tasting like sugar, when remade it was a Manhattan but left such a bad aftertaste in my mouth so we never finished. My date ordered a Margaretta that was nothing short of sugar water.
Our appetizers, crab cake s, were cold and lacked flavor. For the main dish i ordered a ribeye. I paid $34 dollars for a piece of steak that was not bigger than the thinly sliced steaks served at waffle house for breakfast.

All the time while watching ,what one would consider a twirking show around my table. Michaels is billed as an upscale dinner with the Jazz flare for African Americans. It should be rebranded as a night club that serves food. At the end of the night i dropped about $200 on dinner trying out a nice spot.

We tipped our waitress well since she was doing the best she could do. We will go back in about 2 years when they get it together.

Call yourself a night club that serves food. When you add upscale to your marketing, people expect that and today you can't deliver.

Only postive takeaway I have is that ambiance is nice. The food was subpar at best.. they ran out of food on the menu only limited to fish and fried wings. Food was unseasoned and taste low quality. The salmon was not fresh, tasted frozen, the so called baked mac n cheese was the most disgusting thing I ever had, it was just boiled noodles no cheese. I'm very unhappy experience and will not be returning or recommend anyone to go.
