Great restaurant and atmosphere typical steakhouse prices for downtown toronto. Peter was a great host to us. Very knowledgeable. Would return in the future
My husband and I have been to Michael's a few times and we keep going back because it's so good! The service is amazing (Peter is amazing - thank you Peter!!), the food is so delicious and it's a beautiful space.
I highly recommend to anyone who likes good quality food and service and does not mind paying for it.
Awesome food and service! Fairly pricey, but you get what you pay for!
Over priced for serving size, taste and quality but l wanted to try this place.
Absolutely delicious food, beautifully prepared. Service impeccable. While overall price is high, quality, presentation and service were impeccable.
This was a disappointing evening at Michael’s. This is a top end priced venue and it functioned like a pretty mid-range diner. The appetizers , carpaccio and a ceviche, were both pretty basic and forgettable. The carpaccio was sparse on the beef and buried in arugula and Parmesan slices. Really an arugula salad with a slice of beef. The ceviche was bland and very uninteresting. Even the lime was very restrained. No zest at all.
My black cod was pleasant, but nothing compared to a Nobu black cod. It was a lost opportunity for a really good fish. The veggies were the best part. My partner asked for a medium tenderloin, which showed up pretty well rare.
The best part was the cocktails which were imaginative. Wine was also ok, but way overpriced if you go by the glass.
Service was fairly peremptory, not particularly attentive. The table next to us had all kinds of mix ups with their order, which was their problem except that we were so compressed that it became ours too.
The dining room is very noisy and needs baffles to absorb the sound. At times we could not converse without raising our voices.
Many things need attention here.
Salad was a bit light in terms of size, but taste was spot on. Drinks were generous re strength. Sides were all great, comparable to Jacobs. Steaks were good (not great), but seasoning was brilliant. Deserts were great (the pine nut tart lived up to what I’d been told.
Waiter was great, attentive and willing to take time to explain things (and the wait staff as a whole acted as a team and it showed).
Ambiance was a bit less staid than similar places, but certainly not distracting. Live singer was not so loud as to require one to raise ones voice.
Michaels is a wonderful Steak House in Toronto. Very high end steak. Service second to none. Be prepared to open your walket though.
Amazing food. Brought our 5 month old and they were incredibly accommdating. Even cut her steak while she was holding the baby
The ambience and service was good but we paid 250 dollars and the food was t worth our. We ordered a steak, lamb and Brussels sprouts. Steak was fine but somehow lacked taste. Lamb was bland and Brussel sprouts was rhe worst. Overall - not going back.
This was to be considered long awaited meal, so looking forward to enjoying a great meal. The server was so knowledgeable that he would not leave our table, filling us with continued up charging of available additions to our ordered meal. The Caesar salad was comparable to a supermarket buffet ( which was comp'ed) The steak I ordered from Nebraska was less than what was expected for the value. The wine which we picked was definitely a great vintage , it was enjoyed to the last glass, noticing that server was wanting to savour some for himself, by short pouring the glass , so some would be left in the bottle. Seasoning of steak or mushrooms did not do any justice to either.Parking was exceptional since we parked within 100 ft of door.
Not going back.
Excellent vibe and ambience. Wait staff were very friendly and knowledgable. Steak variety and quality were exceptional and cooked perfectly.
The food was excellent. Did not like sitting beside someone so close that was obnoxious.
Amazon food and even better service. Had a fantastic evening. Thanks Michael!
The food was exquisite and our server was wonderful!
Great Service and Food as usual including Valet. Trying to find a parking in DT is hard and this place eliminates that!
Peter was awesome!!
Excelent food and service !
Fabulous steak house with excellent service, AMAZING whisk(e)y selection, great wine list, and food to die for. Sadly, I was only visiting Toronto, otherwise I would be a regular.
Expensive, but food was worth it. Excellent quality food, great service and staff. Will return.
We had a wonderful experience at Michael’s on Simcoe. We ate the oysters, seafood platter and steak! Everything was fantastic!
Great steaks, service, and atmosphere!
Lovely Saturday date night. Service was attentive expertly cooked. Pure, simple secondi of heirloom tomatoes and risotto with a decadent amount of white truffles. The palate cleanser of branzino ceviche was an unexpected, fun surprise of the night. Lamb and rabbit followed, and while nothing can match the unctuousness of the Kobe beef, the lack of perfection found with the rabbit was swiftly, and even eagerly rectified by management. Frankly, having one hiccup to the evening left an even greater satisfaction in Michael's service and care. My one regret of the night is that we did not recall the specific names of our server and somellier, so I could compliment them personally.
Great food and drinks. Service lovely. Now take this review. I’m not writing anymore
Michael's is our favourite restaurant in Toronto, my wife and I always choose Michael's for the best steak in the city. The service is terrific and the food is always superb.
My son and I had a special occasion to enjoy so we went to Micheal’s for a fabulous dinner as always!
Bryce our server was so attentive, helpful and wise with our food and wine choses.
Simply the Best
Thank you 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Outstanding food. Nice atmosphere. Great service. The oysters and ceviche were wonderfull. Highly recommended!
Wonderful food and service every single time!!
Steak is the best, travelled to many places serving steak and very good at it but this was just amazing
Service was good but there were only 3 occupied tables so.... The food was good quality. But $$$$$$. Maybe we just aren’t those type of people but when I spend $300+ for two people I want to feel like it was an experience. I just don’t feel that way. And don’t go here if you like to drink. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$
It was a great to dine in Michael’s on Simcoe. Everything we paid is worth it. Highly recommend to couple/family celebrating special occasions.
I wanted a quiet night with my girlfriend and that’s exactly what I got. Top three favourite restaurants in Toronto. Service goes above and beyond.
My husband fined for the first time at Michael’s to celebrate my 50th birthday. It was wonderful from start to finish. I was surprised with a beautiful dessert with a candle. Thank you xo
Excellent food and service. Wonderful ambiance. Highly recommend
I have been here on a few special occasions and each time it has been an excellent experience. The service and food are outstanding. It is not cheap though.
Well taken care of. Stuart took care of my table very well.
Food was excellent and the service was impeccable. Staff was very attentive
Simply outstanding for the quality of the food, attention to detail and goi g the extra mile for their customers. Thank you for our special unannounced birthday attentions. It made our evening very special.
Great Service as usual! And the steaks were incredible!
The food was amazing and the staff were excellent! Probably the best steak I’ve ever eaten. Highly recommend going there.
When we visit Toronto again we will certainly go back for seconds.
