My husband and I took his brother and wife to Michael's to celebrate a birthday.

The service was amazing (thank you Steve!) and the food was delicious. We tried 3 different kinds of steaks: grass fed, grain fed and wagu. The sides were yummy. Our favorite one was the squash. We had such an amazing time. Highly recommend this place if you're a foodie and love good food and don't mind paying the price.

Our waiter was amazing- cheerful and helpful.
Steaks were a little dry/over-cooked- should have ordered some sauce to go with!
The conversation was a bit loud/echoed.
Great night out- nice atmosphere- will go again!

Wow! We had the best meal here. Everything was absolutely delicious - hubby had a PEI steak, I had the Potato Gnocchi with Lobster and added fresh shaved truffles - the best! Service was top notch, from the hostess to our waitress to the bartender and we had the opportunity to chat a bit with the chef, too! I would highly recommend Michaels on Simcoe!

Everything was excellent. Our server was fantastic and on the ball throughout the meal. My only complaint is that the steaks were not seared enough on the outside, for a place that has such great cuts of meat it’s a shame not to cook them perfectly. Overall, though, the food was all fantastic especially the amuse bouche and the bread we started with. Thanks for a great night out.

If you want to try the beef A5 waygu from Japan this place won’t disappoint you but be prepared for the prices. It was easily the best steak I have ever tried in my life. The sides were all very good as well. Would definitely go again.

Amazing experience! Service was very good, and for being a young couple we felt very welcomed. We didn't order apatizers but they still brought us bread and a taste of a dish that the chef made, so we didn't need to! Would highly recommend for a nice dinner.

Amazing experience, surprised i havent heard of them sooner. Was my wife's birthday, they had sent us complimentary starters from the Chef, which just made the night all that better. Servers were exceptional, if you would ask something or for an recommendation, they knew what to offer right away, amazing. Will be going back again.

Easily one of the best dining experiences I have ever had in my life.

Two friends and I made a last-minute reservation and ambled in on a crisp, fall Saturday evening. The service was impeccable. As soon as our butts collectively hit our chairs, our wonderful waiter, whose name escapes me, was greeting us and offered TWO different kinds of fancy water, after a brief pause he offered tap, to which we responded affirmatively. "Toronto's finest" he said, as he whisked himself away to procure our water. This would be the first of many zingers with which our fine waiter entertained us.

How to begin such a meal at such a place, cocktails of course. Among us, we ordered two manhattans and a dirty martini. While ordering my manhattan on the rocks, I inquired if there might be a single, large ice cube offering of sorts - boy was there. Upon delivery I saw, sitting in a beautiful crystal glass (like for real crystal, this was a HIGH quality glass) with my expertly crafted cocktail, a sizable sphere of ice. Yes, a giant ice ball in my crystal cocktail glass.

Everything that followed was on par with that immaculate opening experience. Our waiter walked us through the menu brilliantly and helped us finalize our order. We split basically everything we ordered which was:
- Steak tartare (this was delectable, they portioned it out for 3 giving us each a place with the steak tartare served inside of an onion ring and topped with an adorable quail egg
- Salad (forget which kind exactly but it was yummy)
- Lobster gnocchi (absolutely delicious, the gnocchi were like tiny edible magical pillows)
- Scallops (perfectly cooked and tender, fresh and flavorful)
- Pasta special (pasta made from scratch in-house, and you could tell, beautiful flavors)
- Prince Edward Island beef tenderloin (melt in your mouth)
- Chocolate lava cake w/ ice cream (should be illegal to have a dessert this good)
- Espresso martinis (I just literally died of happiness at this point)

10/10 the best

This was not my first time here. First of all, the service was almost beyond excellent.
The Lobster Bisque alone makes it worthwhile to come here. My friend and I had the Beef Tenderloin from PEI. The steaks were excellent.
The atmosphere here is upscale but not overwhelming. I really like the fireplace that they have. I am really grateful that they offer free valet parking because it's next to impossible to find a legal spot within walking distance. The valet himself was great as well. Pretty much a perfect night out.

Having had extensive experience entertaining clients and eating out I have to say Michaels left me impressed. The wine list is as deep or shallow as you want. I found good value in a Chilean wine, and the steak has the same range. We opted for the T-Bone for 2. The steak had a lot of flavor, and the homemade pasta was delicious. We sat in the more casual part of the restaurant as they had live entertainment that was excellent. One of the finest restaurants I've been to this year.
