My second trip to this place in 6 weeks - every bite was delicious. I’ve had both the steak (plus accoutrements) and other things on the menu and all are worthwhile. This makes it a great place to go if some people want a fancy steakhouse meal and some just want a delicious, special dinner. Cocktails and wine list are excellent. The service was the best service I’ve had in years, both times.

Service was excellent all the way through. Amazing cocktails and win selection. Steak was cooked perfectly. Our server listened to us and remembered everything about our order. They truly try to treat you like Royalty, with even a selection of knives for my partner's Wagyu steak. I let them know it was for her birthday through OpenTable and her cake came out with a chocolate drizzle saying Happy Birthday that was touched by gold leaf. The only issue is it may be hard to go to regular restaurants now. Truly excellent experience.

Bought the travelzoo voucher for a taste of Michael's. The food was spectacular, as you would expect but the exceptional service was what made the night so good. I'm sure that ordering from the menu is a great experience. Wine is discussed with a very knowledgeable sommelier who gave all the information required to make the best decision. Highly recommend!!

We were visiting from New York and dined here for our anniversary. The ambiance is very sheek and the staff very pleasant. Our server, Peter, was very friendly and more than accommodating. We were given a private corner table and a complementary dessert to celebrate. We did find it a bit pricey, as our bill was over $600! We are from NY and used to expensive dinners, but even after deducting the $150 bottle of wine, we were slightly shocked. That being said, we would most likely return for a special occasion.

Wonderful service and fabulous food. The articoke app was sublime and the espresso martini was the best I ever had. We ate in the bar which was light filled and had a great vibe. Dining area looked very cool but both spaces seemed disconnected. Excellent for a special night out!

Last dinner on our long weekend trip to Toronto, could not have asked for a better meal. Staff was great, service was on point and the meal was excellent. We were a party of six with three birthdays to celebrate, Michael’s on Simcoe prepared for us a assortment of desserts for us to enjoy, great job. No question we will be back on our next trip to Toronto.

I found that our server was very rude because we were a young bi-racial couple. The only coloured people dining that night. She had checked up on us twice only and we had to keep calling our server over and she got annoyed by the end of the night. We spent a lot of money that night and did not even receive a thank you and just walked away when she took the bill with the payment. If your not white I wouldn’t suggest eating there weather you have money or not to spend.

1. I'm so disappointed to the seating arrangement for my wife birthday.
2. The lobster bisque it was salty
3. The side dishes of mushroom and cauliflower also salty..
4. The seafood platter was not presentable. Taste like the lobster bisque, no difference.
5. The cocktail menu also very poor. Most of the mix drinks are using either lime or lemon juice.
6. It's a high end restaurant but without the quality.

Nice people but Terrible service...unable serve scotch because could not find any of the scotch I asked for, took > 45 min to serve any drinks, brought the wrong sides with steak and put them in my plate, brought the correct side after steak was finished. After all that did not offer to cover any alcohol etc.

Very disappointing. Save your money .

We went for dinner on Mother’s Day. The food was excellent. Steak was awesome. Service was impeccable. The environment is classy, trendy and elegant. My only issue is that the price point is excessive. While the restaurant markets itself as an exceptional fine dining location, some the the pricing is excessive. The steak costs are on par with places like Jacobs and STK However charging over $9 for a bottle of water, $24 for burrata cheese and and over $20 for a Caesar salad is a bit much. So having said that, we loved the experience but if you don’t have an expense account, be prepared for a hefty bill. Christian provides outstanding service.

Peter took great care of us.
Food, as always was fantastic.
It’s always too dark, though. At one point the lights were turned up for some reason and it was wonderful. Then it was turned down again.

It’s hard to read the menu and appreciate the colours of the food.

Very over priced for the quality of food. Service was excellent but the food was sub par at best we were 4 people and had the vegetarian option the chicken and 2 steaks and nobody enjoyed the meal. Sides were awful and we pretty much left them all untouched. The chicken was a roll of dark and white meat all stuck together and deep fried, really did not meet our expectations and we definitely won’t be back. Was hoping to find a new option while Hys renovates but this was definitely not it 😢

When we got in the host got us to our seats right away and took care of coat check which was a great way to start off our evening.

We were helped as soon as we were seated, our waitress was very nice and pleasant. One thing i loved was that our water glasses were never empty. The seats were comfortable, tables had a lot of space which is important to me. The food was amazing, our steaks were cooked just how we ordered and the sides tasted amazing as well.

Everything came out in a time frame that left us never waiting too long which was also a plus. I wish it were a bit quieter so it would be easier to talk but i guess that depends on the people attending the night of.

When leaving, my coat was held up and put on me, arm by arm which was convenient and left me very comfortable. I would definitely come again.
