Overall the experience at Michael’s was good. However, the one piece that really soured the night was the fact that we were able to watch (on more than one occasion) one of the managers berate the wait/bus staff right in front of us. It distracted us from enjoying our night. There is a way to train or discipline your staff when needed, however demeaning them in front of guests is not be acceptable! I would recommend this steakhouse based on the food and decor, but the ambience and service wasn’t the best considering the circumstances.

Food was delicious as well as the entire dinner. However, we were surprised to see we were charged 9 CAD for the water which we didnt ask for and was not even on the table. We just had a couple of glasses but dont know if the bottle was empty or not and, above all, we just asked for simple still water.

Unfortunaly didnt notice it at the payment, already very expensive. But I invite you to check the bill before paying.

This was our first visit to Michael’s restaurant, and we had a strange experience. The food was excellent, but Christian, our waiter, treated us differently than the other patrons. He was abrupt with us and we felt mostly ignored by him, while he was very attentive to the others. He never told us about the specials ( I overheard another waiter explaining them to another table), failed to bring us an amuse bouche while serving them to other guests, and didn’t ask us once if our meal was okay. We felt like he disliked us for some reason. Everyone else who interacted with us were very pleasant and friendly. I would be reluctant to return in case we encountered this waiter again.

Excellent food. Steaks cooked and seasoned to perfection. Service was outstanding. Our waitress was polite, Engaging, and attentive. Where we were sat was the only negative to our evening. I made the reservations a few days on advance, but the hostess ( who was a wee bit rude) had us sat in the bar. It was overly noisy. So loud it was difficult to carry on an intimate conversation.

We had a spacious booth in the bar area, which was a little noisier than the main dining rooms, but afforded us a convenient view of their entertainer that Saturday evening, a woman solo guitarist with a beautiful voice. My lobster bisque starter was particularly exceptional with nice chunks of the main ingredient and vegetable garnishments presented around the perimeter of the bowl for introduction into the bisque immediately before consuming. It keeps those ingredients from stewing - nice fresh textures and tastes. My PEI tenderloin filet and my wife's halibut were fantastic. Top shelf selection of wines available by the glass, as my wife enjoyed her white and I my red. The contemporary decor and hip vibe are in contrast to the conservatively-dressed staff that serve like you are in traditional fine steakhouse. Michael's is another great reason for us to return to Toronto for another visit.

Very overpriced meal, and I don’t mind paying when the quality is high. Yes it was a good steak, but not $70 good...and to serve it on a plate alone and charge extra for a side dish? That’s just plain tacky. The sommelier decanted a bottle of wine for us (a $99 bottle), but after our first glass the rest just disappeared. Not his fault and he did comp two glasses of a really nice wine in place of that, but for a restaurant to charge what they do, having wine go missing??? The rest of the meal was just OK. Salty and not much else happening flavour wise. Would not return.

We went Michael’s for my father’s birthday. The food is amazing, and the live music was good too. The guy who served our table was really nice. And thanks for the kitchen who decorated my farther’s birthday cake! Overall my experience at Michaels was very good but the only thing that I don’t understand is I made the reservation on opentable at 7:30PM, but we still waited for over half hour at the bar. So what’s the point for the reservation?
