Fantastic food and presentation. Michael is a most affable host, and an amazing chef. His entire staff incredibly well trained. It is well worth the cost, but should be for special occasions.

Exceptional service, very good food, low noise level, great place for a classy date. The cost is not high for the value.

Both the food and the service were outstanding. The portion sizes are on the small side which makes for a good choice in either the 3 or 4 course prix fix menu. The ingredients were fresh and the fish was cooked to perfection.

The restaurant is quiet, which lends to a conversation friendly environment. The courses are well spaced to avoid being rushed or feeling full before the meal is over.

I would definitely recommend for a special occasion dining experience.

My wife and I had been to Michael’s several times previously but not in recent months. It was my birthday and my wife apprised the restaurant but there was no acknowledgement whatsoever. More glaring was the mistake with my wife’s order. After we enjoyed the salmon tartare and a salad, our entrees arrived—rabbit for me, but the totally wrong entree for my wife (she had ordered the vegetarian special but was brought salmon). No apologies. By the time they brought the correct entree 20 minutes later, I was almost finished with mine. We then enjoyed a delicious dessert-chocolate soufflé with butterscotch gelato.

We loved the food as usual, but were quite upset at the way the staff handled or failed to handle the mistake. In addition, we were puzzled by the lack of an apology and the failure to recognize my birthday.

Excellent food & service. Great value for the quality of food. You likely haven’t had these dishes before. Chef “chats you up” now & again; if a foodie he’s an interesting guy with a personality. Would love to see more “30 & 40 somethings” in the place.

Everything top to bottom at this restaurant is excellent. The food is 5 star without being pretentious. Certainly curious about their higher end restaurant George Trois within the same building.

Restaurant Michael is my favorite restaurant. It's always perfect and is only of the only places in the suburbs to get venison or rabbit.

Another great meal at Restaurant Michael. The service and food are always top notch. The chef
just happened to at the host and he seated us himself. Were else does that happen? We had venison and Osso Buco as entrees and they could not have been prepared better. Thanks for another great dining experience.
