My husband and I go on date night every chance we get. We’ve gone to many steak houses and we were excited to try Michael’s on Simcoe for the first time last night. Having a lot of great experiences at other steak houses to compare, we can whole heartedly say that our experience at Michael’s was the very best from start to finish ! We were warmly welcomed the second we walked in the door, our waiter was just as warm, honest and just the right amount of checking in. The food was amazing!!! On our way out, we had the pleasure of meeting Michael himself, he was so down to earth and an all around great guy, you can just tell. We chatted with him for a long time as he shared the same passion as my husband when it comes to whiskey. Thank you, Michael and Michael’s on Simcoe for making our date night so extra special! This will definitely be the only steak house we visit in Toronto
from now on, because of the amazing food, but also for the most amazing service.

I was very disappointed with the service from our server Peter. He was very rude and stuck up, he made it clear that he was upset that we were ordering winterlicious and ordered a 60$ bottle of nice wine. Everyone else was friendly but now I know how fine dining works. I work in the hospitaly and so does my boyfriend and we both felt looked down upon. Server was clearly judging us and didnt even try to make conversation when we were talking. To me as a server you should always treat your guest with respect no matter what they order or how little the bill may be.

We went for our anniversary. We ordered winterlicious 3 course meal and drinks. The quantity of the appetizer was very low but it tasted remarkable. main course and desserts were superb. Our waiter was very nice and smiling he got us desserts with happy anniversary written on it and wished us too. So nice of him. Over all beautiful experience and they made our day special.

This was my second visit to Micheal's the first was using WagJag 4 courses with wine pairing, awesome experience. This time we went for Winterlicous and it did not disappoint once again, I had the fried artichoke (awesome) steak with spinach and mushrooms (super awesome) and the ricotta cheesecake...not so awesome but did not take away from the experience, that's what going to Micheal's is, something you must experience.

My wife’s first time was likely my best experience yet. From the seating, to the impeccable service, to the always phenomenal food, the evening was perfect.
Our waiter Stephen’s knowledge of all our dishes was impressive to say the least, right down to the farm in most cases, and I wasn’t making it easy for him either.
To top it all off, the head bartender and I go way back. I didn’t know she had started there. It was a great end to an amazing meal to be able to catch up with an old friend.

The reservation was painless and very informative. The place is so relaxing that we were able to enjoy the food and each other's company. We went for the Winterlicious menu and the steak was PERFECT. The steak was so very thick yet the medium rare was PERFECT. We were extremely impressed by it. Servers and receptions were most professional, kind, patience, caring and welcoming. This is a place that will firmly stay in my life for sure.

This stylish restaurant featuring in-house aged steak, and an extensive 800+ wine list proved to be one of the best restaurants we've had the pleasure to dine at. Known for its premier steaks including A5 Kobe, American Wagyu, in house dry aged USDA Prime and PEI naturally raised grass fed beef, a reservation is highly recommended. Steve, their in-house sommelier carefully curated our wine pairing that included regional expressions of Burgundy, Bordeaux, and Napa Valley. His selections enhanced each course of our dinner, producing a yin and yang between our food and wine.

We started our dinner with crisp fried artichokes with fresh tomato sofritto, lemon aioli, with shaved parmesan followed by a most flavourable Caesar salad that made my mouth pucker. My mushroom risotto arrived with a delicate hint of cheese and wine, perfectly al dente. The steak knife could have glided through the certified PEI Island beef on its own accord it was so tender. It was perfectly marbled and glazed with heat.

The service was top notch from start to finish and the pacing of our meal was ideal. We would highly recommend Michael's on Simcoe if you want an evening and experience to remember.

We are from Rochester, NY and this past weekend was our third visit to Michaels. Each time we go the food and service seems to be better than the last time-and it was outstanding the first time we went. This is our go to place in Toronto. There is an outstanding selection of cocktails, appetizers (including PEI oysters), prime steaks (ribeyes, strips and filets) from Canada, US and Japan; pasta and seafood. We were heading to a Raptors game and didn't want to order a bottle of wine so we asked our waiter for a suggestion of a glass of cabernet to go with our steaks. The waiter brought over the sommelier Steve, who suggested one, which was fantastic-and the price was not over the top. He also spent quite a bit of time with us advising us of other options, discussing wines in general and even recommended a local Cab option, which we plan on trying in the near future.

We cannot wait until our next visit.

Absolutely outstanding restaurant! The food was impeccable and the service was top notch! I used the WagJag deal which was beyond excellent. I would highly recommend it to those of you looking to try much of what the menu has to offer. The wine pairings went very well with the courses. Do be prepared to pay the tax as it is not prepaid in the deal. As for attire, gentlemen should dress smart, but there is no need to overdo it (jacket optional). Ladies should dress more or less the same. Overall, I would highly recommend this place for a romantic evening or just for a great fine dining experience!

For the price it was just okay. For those prices might as well go to stk or Jacobs. (Where steak is tastier as well)
However I base my reviews more so on experience and the service I receive.
Our main server was great! So i feel somewhat bad leaving a not great review. It was the manager (or who i assume was the manager) that made the experience bad. He was quick to take away our food. Even at one point taking away our sides that we were still eating.
I saved my 10,000 ($130 open table credit) for this restaurant and felt it was a waste !
