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.

Service was very friendly and excellent.
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!!!

De bons ingrédients pour une parfaite réalisation. Les amuse bouches excellents, un surf and turf parfait. L'assurance d'une cuisine régulière, classique et solide. 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 .!

Food and service were very good. Beautiful restaurant. Most guests were appropriate but some were not what one would expect of a restaurant in this price point and detracted from the dining experience.

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!

Food was ok-ish, service was poor. Ambiance was ok-ish. Price is of a high end restaurant, but the food, service (terrible), and ambiance does not match that of a high end restaurant. $160 steak was just ok, not even juicy. 2 out of 5.

I'm not saying you won't have an exceptional experience, I'm just saying ours was pretty average. We're from Milwaukee and have had better fine dining experiences back home. The staff was very friendly, service was pretty good. Pasta was good not great, steak was cooked well but I've had better for the price. I understand market value in Toronto is a lot more than Wisconsin so there is that. Ambience was nice, whiskey selection was good. Overall enjoyed the experience and would rate 3/5 ☆
