We were visiting our son at Colgate. This restaurant was a bit of a drive from there, but worth it. Even during a busy weekend, we did not feel rushed or did it seem that the staff was stressed. We were seated promptly. The pork chop and the tuna were both excellent. We had one small service glitch with a... More

We visit Michael's when we visit from the UK to see relatives who live in the area and always look forward to it. The food is extremely good, very imaginative and well presented. We can utterly recommend it.

Our family visited Michael;s on a Sunday evening. The service was very good and the menu choices were extensive, even my kids had a great selection. We choose everything from Chicken to Salmon and everything tasted great. This is above the price of higher end chain restaurants, but so is the quality. You will be happy you found this gem.

We celebrated my husband's birthday on a Friday night. They accommodated us without reservations, although I don't know how. The place was filled to capacity. Our menu choices, well-defined and varied, were all excellent. The price was what you would expect with a fine dining establishment, but worth the cost in our opinion. The wait staff were courteous and conscientious,... More

Long wait time after ordering even though the restaurant was empty. Had been there before and it was quite good. Not this time as far as I was concerned. I had a veal special that was really not good. One piece of veal couldn't be cut or eaten. It was over eggplant that was hard and didn't taste like it... More

Small family celebration of my birthday made all the more special by the special treatment provided by the staff at Michael's. I knew this was going to be a good restaurant selection when i made the reservation and they asked if we were celebrating anything special and if there were any food allergies in our group! Our evening was wonderful... More

The "sauce" that came with my chicken parm appeared and tasted like canned watery crushed tomatoes which soaked the breaded chicken. There was no hint of basil, oregano, salt etc. The parm was nearly non-existent. My wife's dish was simply ok. Years ago this place had the best veal parm, hands down. What happened? Not even on the menu. Wait... More
