The food was e cell ET and the staff was very accommodating to one of my guests who is vegan. They made her a special dish which was excellent. Overall, a great place - warm and welcoming, great service and food
We always enjoy our visits to Michel. The food never disappoints, and they have an excellent, interesting wine list.
My wife and I enjoyed our belated Valentines meal at Michel which we have visited a few times before. Recent menu changes we found were not as good as previous occasions; a salad with smoked flavored dressing altogether missed the mark. But still favorites things about the restaurant like the pommes dauphine, delicious main courses and excellent service made the evening worthwhile.
This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant -- it works for a special occasion or just a regular meal. Even when you end up with a newer server, the food always shines through. Have only been for dinner and brunch, but it's always fantastic.
We were a little disappointed when we found out the menu has changed and that the ownership has changed. It's not the same restaurant any more, except for the lamb burger. We didn't like the menu selection and found that the food is just not the same (except the lamb burger) Not sure we'll be returning.
The food was excellent Special Valentine’s Day Prix Fixe $90 was a little steep but very busy that night obviously
Went for valentines days, everything was just okay food was sub-par
Terrible experience. Went for Valentine's day. Spent $300 on not very good food, horrible service (Sat with empty drinks for more than 15 minutes multiple times when there was plenty of staff and only a couple of tables. Staff stood around and chatted with each other rather than checking on guests), there was something hard that chipped my girlfriends tooth on the second course (server did not inquire if everything was ok when there had only been one bite of food taken), bathroom had blood in it after staff walked out without cleaning it up, brought out desert while still eating main course and dropped check without us asking (they clearly wanted to leave, they should not take a reservation for 9:15 on a multicourse meal if they are going to push you out and not give you enough time to eat the meal, especially when the servers ignore the guests). Overall, worst dining experience I have had in the last decade. Do not come here. There are so many good restaurants in the area, don't waste your money on very overpriced food with terrible service.
Great local French spot. It was Valentine’s Day so prix fixe, not the regular menu. 4 stars simply for service attentiveness. We had to refill our glasses from our bottle of champagne and didn’t really get checked up on, but understandable because it’s such a busy night. Other sections seemed to get the kind of service you’d expect for a $275 night. I’ll be back to check out the normal menu.
Another great meal (out of many) at Bistro Michel. We enjoyed the Valentine's Day prix fixe enormously. Good food, service, value.
Overpriced for comparable neighborhood restaurants
We ordered the bone marrow and it was a bit on the salty side. We also had the steak tartare which was quite disappointing but however the lamb burger was very delicious.
Birthday dinner was a very pleasant event
This was my first time there under the new ownership. I was pleased to see the same menu items and the quality seemed good. However, it seems that the chefs get to choose the music based on what they want to listen to. So here we were in this nice French restaurant being blasted with too loud am-quality rock and roll music! Out of place. Too hard to talk. I was pushy and got them to turn it down but they defended they choice heartily. Its a deal killer for me.
A very strange menu. A very unusual wine list. Avoid unless very hungry and nothing else is open.
Great food. Great service
The bar food looked really good but we were sitting at a table
Loved the Oakland Restaurant Week meal
The venue is dimly lit and has a nonchalant ambiance. The service is friendly and well-paced. Most importantly, the food is reliably delicious (comfortably filling and heartwarming). There's a good variety of drinks available--beer, wine, cocktails--to suit any mood. Michel delivers...and it won't break the bank.
My first time here and I enjoyed it. But we both ordered the Oakland Restaurant Week menu and it took much too long between the first course and 2nd course.
Just OK. The restaurant week menu was mediocre at best, and the jazz playing on the sound system was unpleasant. Not enough here to prompt us to return.
