Did not have a good experience. Unfortunately they did not have a menu of their spirits on hand which was a disappointment since their wine list was so extensive. The waiter had to go back and forth a few times due to the fact he didn’t know which different kinds of whiskey or tequila they had.we waited for our guests to arrive and were disappointed with the lack of appetizers that were not seafood or raw meat. As people who don’t like those things we were unable to have a small snack before our friends joined us and wish that the bread they offered before your meal was brought when we sat down but that was never even offered to us and didn’t even know they did that until our friends came which was about 30 minutes after we arrived so we sat with only our drinks. That was a minor issue. We then ordered our mains and a few apps our friends wanted but had asked for the mains to be started to be cooked as we were hungry. The apps came out within a decent about of time but they took over an hour to bring out the mains and was given the excuse the one steak ordered takes a while to cook which is crazy they think a steak would take over an hour to cook even if it was a 2 inch thick steak. I’ve cooked enough of them as know at most they take 25 minutes.after getting our mains they served my husband the wrong steak. We were hungry and tried to eat as my husband was not into making a big fuss but unfortunately due to the fact it was the wrong steak he was unable to eat it. I tried some of it and I was unable to enjoy it as well. We had asked for a 6 oz wagyu tenderloin and was served a 6 oz Kobe strip. The mashed potatoes were so hot could hardly eat them.We then got the bill and that is when we realized they had served my husband the strip but also and charged our friend 225 for a shot of tequila even though the tequila he had asked for should of been about 50 bucks. They did not once care about the screw ups or even apologize. They cared more about cleaning the crumbs up

Right away as me and my fiance got into the restaurant the hostess at the front was very welcoming and pleasant. The servers were nice and checked up on us but not overwhelming. The ambiance is lovely for a romantic date. There was live entertainment which was so good. I enjoyed that the most because the songs selection was bomb!i was singing along all night. I enjoyed my time there. The lamb was tasty and so were the jumbo prawns. Over all good vibes i would go back.

The overall experience was good. However, we were sat beside the entrance which made us uncomfortable. It was our anniversary and nothing special was offered to us.

This is a must stop whenever i’m in Toronto.
As a Montrealer, I am lucky to have amazing restaurants but I put Michael’s right up there with queue de cheval and 40 Westt. (Possibly better)
The Kobe and wagyu are cooked to perfection. The wine list is great, had a 2016 Tig. The restaurant was busy and service a little slow but the restaurant was great about handling that and bringing some ‘amuse-bouche ‘ on the house.
Steve was great as usual and always makes time to chat and say hi/bye.

Too bad I’m so far! Be back soon

Food was good but way over priced.
Live music was too loud and our server was very cold. Almost arrogant.

Won't be going back.

Unfortunately maybe we were just unlucky but the food was not the greatest. Our steaks were barely warm and weren’t the greatest in taste especially for the amount we are spending.

Ordered medium and medium rare steak. I think both were a little undercooked. Medium was still pink. It was still really good steak.

Michael's on Simcoe is simply outstanding. The food is fantastic, the service is impeccable and the atmosphere is perfect. This was our second visit as our previous one was so good we had to come back. Very good steak, expansive wine list and amazing selection of spirits especially tequila. In addition to the great service from our waitress we were also well taken care of by the bartender and manager and other wait staff. Highly recommend for a special occasion when you don't mind spending some extra $$$. Beyond well worth it!!!

Une cave exceptionnelle et un menu sommelier à lire et relire en salivant.Pour magnifier le tout un service sans erreur , élégant, discret , efficace , souriant et suivi. Comme quoi on peut être un homme , porter des boucles d'oreilles et assurer un parfait service .!

The food was excellent and our waiter was very helpful with finding the perfect drink for us. We tried the lobster bisque, the rack of lamb, and the surf and turf. All were excellent. For dessert, we also tried to the white chocolate cheesecake, which I strongly recommend. That dessert was delicious. On a whole, the experience was very nice, and I would come back in the future.

I brought my date to Michael's last night . It was my first time there and everything was outstanding. The place the food especially the oysters which are out of this world. I had the 8oz sirloin which was done to perfection. The ambiance and the service was prompt and never was without. One of my favorite places to go and I will be back sooner than later

Quite simply put, this is the best restaurant I've been to. The food was an absolute homerun from start to finish. The starters were phenomenal, the mains were perfect and the dessert was exquisite. The service was above and beyond my expectations. I have never had servers who were as informative, kind and helpful. Do yourself a favor and visit Michael's on Simcoe. Then do yourself another favor and go again!
