Unfortunately it was our first visit to Restaurant Michael! it was so good, service was very attentive and the food (Duck a l'orange and osso buco) was delicious. How had we never heard about it?! we will be back again. Also met the chef, Michael who was charming - welcoming, friendly. Enjoyed our evening very much.

Went for a special dinner for my Mom's 75th birthday. All in all a great evening. There was a minor snafu at the beginning, in that I parked adjacent to the restaurant, but on entering was asked where I parked and then told to move my car. The adjacent spaces are apparently reserved for the more exclusive and co located Trois George's. It would be better if they would mark the spots accordingly. The booths where we were first seated are suitable for 2 persons only. We were reseated much more comfortably at a table. Food was amazing. The Loup de Mere and duck dishes highly recommended, and the deserts especially the Grand Marnier Creme Brûlée a masterpiece. I met Chef Michael on the way out, and he was very friendly and gracious

We went for the Christmas special menu. We were disappointed. We expected a festive atmosphere. There were not holiday decorations, the place was rather somber. We were seated in an “overflow area” not in the main dining room. It seems that they were short of staff and the staff were rather harried. The food was excellent, as usual, but the ambiance and service were rather disappointing.

Michael never disappoints. The food is always excellent, and creative without being trendy. It is just really wonderful, classic, mostly french style cuisine. This is a great place.

We went at 6:30 on a Sunday evening and restaurant was full. Food was outstanding and ambience very good but service was slow even for a leisurely fine dinner. Brought our own wine and no corkage fee was a Sunday draw. Will go back but hope for faster service.

This was a dreadful evening in every respect other than the company of friends. Food was inexcusably slow and substandard. Service was non-existent: we even had to pour our own wine and wait 1:15 for bread. Apologies were entirely inadequate. Wine list was frightfully overpriced, as was the food for its quantity and quality.

Highly recommend the restaurant EXCEPT on NEW YEARS EVE! 2nd seating people were subjected to a long standing for half and hour and more while early diners enjoyed their long, leisurely meal U disturbed. Didn't take our coats, check us in or acknowledge us in any way. Last holiday dinner we'll plan there!
