Was taken by a colleague and meal was good.

We went early and it wasn't busy but seemed to pick up later on. So would advise booking.

Service was good and food was enjoyable.

Best meal I have had in the area.

Valet parking for an empty parking lot was a turn-off right away. When I told the hostess my reservation would now be 3 people, she responded that the reservation was for 2. Then to top off my experience with her, she took us to the table just outside the kitchen. There was only one other table occupied in the entire restaurant.
The Porterhouse for two was tough and with no taste. The mashed with lobster looked like Kraft's Mac 'n Cheese with a couple of pieces of lobster thrown in.
And, the waiter and other servers kept dropping glasses, plates and silverware on the floor.
Stay away and you will have a better foodie experience anywhere else.

I'm a big fan of their Tuna Tartare. Steaks are always on point. It's just a nice place to dine when you want to eat good food. The place never disappoints!

This is only a review of their "Lounge" area. Not the restaurant. Came here on a Saturday night with friends. My first impression of the place went from bad to worse. This place is pretentious. Trying way too hard to be something its not.

First off, parking is valet only. Not sure why. They have a large parking lot and they're located in a residential area. I've lived in NYC, San Francisco, Honolulu, Vegas, Atlantic City, etc. I have NEVER seen mandatory valet parking at clubs/lounges that were way better than Chris Michael's. It's only $5 for valet which isnt much. But its what gave me the impression that the place was pretentious.

Get to the door and the bouncer asks for IDs and proceeds to pat me down for weapons. What the hell? This place is in a suburb in NJ. Ive been to clubs in NYC that dont pat you down.

Came here with the girlfriend to celebrate a friends birthday. We arrived at 11 PM on a Saturday.....there were only about 20 people there. And about 10 of them were in our party. So why is parking valet only? Its not like theres a lot of people coming to this place. We stated until closing and to be fair, it did pick up at around 2 AM. But still, I dont think there were ever more than 50 people inside.

The patrons were much like the "Lounge" people pretending to be something theyre not. The age of the clientele skewed....older. Maybe mid to late 40s. Dressed up and acting like theyre still 21 and at a nice club. Lot of cougars and older guys dressed up in nice clothes with fat guts. All looking to get laid. And theres nothing wrong with that. More power too them. Just not my cup of tea. I will say that nobody seemed sleazy or anything. Everybody was respectful. No drunk guys grinding against girls who asked to be left alone.

Lastly, the drinks. We ordered beers (tap) and cocktails. They seemed to be watered down. I gave this place the benefit of the doubt and figured maybe the drinks were just weak. And then I ordered a $3 bottle of VOSS water. You could get a 12 for $10. But that isnt what upset me. As I was about to open the bottle I noticed that the seal appeared to have been tampered with. Half of the seal had been ripped off and the half that remained was bubbled. As if they filled the bottle with regular tap water and tried to put the seal back on it.

Never coming back here again.
