We pulled into the driveway and the sign said "reserved parking" so I left the car with the keys in it. Only when we entered the restaurant did we learn there was no valet and I needed to move the car to the street. As...More

I had dinner here on a snowy and icy Sunday evening. My food was simply perfect, I had the loup de mer that was crispy, tasty, delicate with a delicious black wild rice. I ask for a couple of gougeres that were warm, just baked....More

The food is without a doubt amazing. The presentation is lovely, and it's a super creative Fall menu right now. It's fine dining without the attitude, and in a quaint setting in the heart of Winnetka. Really enjoyed the whole evening and appreciate the chef's...More

At last count, there aren't too many outstanding French restaurants in Chicago. One, Voltaire, just closed. If you realize that Chicago is a town noted for steaks, hot dogs and pizza, you understand why French restaurants aren't widely celebrated. But Michael in north suburban Winnetka...More

The food is a cross between Continental, leaning toward the French, and modern American, Menus change regularly and are very innovative. The room is pleasant, not over done. Service is informative and attentive without being to much so. Occasionally, the chef will come out to...More

Michael's is one of the best places to eat in the North Shore suburbs. It's an intimate place with good service. Because it's pricey, it's more for special occasions unless you are wealthy. I started out with salad greens served with lightly pickled beets and...More

I've visited this restaurant many times over the years and it never disappoints. Personalized service as soon as you enter, fantastic, fresh food presented beautifully. Lots of selection for fine wines, even by the glass. I dream of their mashed potatoes...so rich, creamy & delicious....More

We're not great fans of French cuisine (and Michael bills his style as "French Comfort Food"), or this would otherwise be a five star place for us. We dine there periodically, and on two or three occasions in his special George Trois section. The service...More

I don't believe so but everyone comes in at least business casual. You would feel uncomfortable in less. Everything is done in a very elegant, but friendly way, so your dress should not be jeans or very casual.
