The scenery inside Restaurant Michael is a very beautiful, hushed, elegant setting. I had a hard time choosing which dishes to order but the food was to die for. I highly recommend getting the smoked salmon appetizer, the portion is incredibly large. As a main...More

While I don't live in Chicago I grew up there and think of it as a great dining town, from hotdogs to high end. The northern suburbs have always been a disappointment however and every time I visit my siblings I try to get them...More

We were celebrating a birthday and enjoying the special lobster dinner. Will review the lobster dinner first. It was a five course meal with the complementary Gruyere cheese gougeres first. They are always a hit, crispy outside with a creamy gruyere mousse filling inside. The...More

As much as I enjoy French cuisine, I reserve my caloric indulgences (and money) for rare special occasions. I had heard only positive things about Michael, so I decided to take my Missus there to celebrate our Anniversary. On this weeknight, only a few tables...More

For years, Le Francais in Wheeling was universally regarded as the finest restaurant in Chicago. When it closed in 2003, snobbish and upscale diners like me doubted that another first-class French restaurant would ever surface again in the northwest suburbs or North Shore. Well, Michael...More
