    Sadly we sat too close to a large and very noisy group. Otherwise, it was good to visit this restaurant again after the covid years.

    We ordered different entrees. They were all so salty we couldn’t finish them. We have had really great meals here in the past, so it was so surprising. Absolutely terrible meal. And not enough servers working, so service was very slow.

    We had been to Michael's once previously and had a very positive experience, unfortunately since then it seems the level of service which you can expect to receive has fallen-off significantly. We came in to celebrate a special occasion, and sat waiting for our food order to be taken for 45 minutes before we had finished our half bottle of wine, cocktails, and water, and decided to just cut our losses and go to a different restaurant. I appreciate that it is difficult to hire people right now, but all the restaurants regulars were well taken care of around us, and we received absolutely no service. There were three other tables our waitress was familiar with, who arrived after us, and ordered their food before we decided to leave. It took me less time to drive to another restaurant, and receive my appetizers then it did to sit and drink a bottle of wine waiting for my waitress at Michael's to take my food order. I would spend my money at a restaurant which cares about providing competent service to their paying customers. I paid 90$ to sit at their restaurant for 45 minutes, and have my anniversary ruined. 10/10 will not be back.

    My husband treated me to dinner for my birthday. We especially enjoyed the special game menu available only for a short period of time. My Cornish hen and my husband’s deer chop were both unusual menu items and excellently prepared. We shared a Toblerone mousse cake for dessert, and it was wonderful, too.

    Great family dinner out. Restaurant was not busy. Air conditioning was on high so bring a sweater. Bruschetta and caprese salad were great. Everyone enjoyed their mains. Gnocchi in tomato sauce really good. Veal Santorina was very tasty and generous portion. Too full for dessert. Great friendly service.
