1. I'm so disappointed to the seating arrangement for my wife birthday.
2. The lobster bisque it was salty
3. The side dishes of mushroom and cauliflower also salty..
4. The seafood platter was not presentable. Taste like the lobster bisque, no difference.
5. The cocktail menu also very poor. Most of the mix drinks are using either lime or lemon juice.
6. It's a high end restaurant but without the quality.

Nice people but Terrible service...unable serve scotch because could not find any of the scotch I asked for, took > 45 min to serve any drinks, brought the wrong sides with steak and put them in my plate, brought the correct side after steak was finished. After all that did not offer to cover any alcohol etc.

Very disappointing. Save your money .

We went for dinner on Mother’s Day. The food was excellent. Steak was awesome. Service was impeccable. The environment is classy, trendy and elegant. My only issue is that the price point is excessive. While the restaurant markets itself as an exceptional fine dining location, some the the pricing is excessive. The steak costs are on par with places like Jacobs and STK However charging over $9 for a bottle of water, $24 for burrata cheese and and over $20 for a Caesar salad is a bit much. So having said that, we loved the experience but if you don’t have an expense account, be prepared for a hefty bill. Christian provides outstanding service.

Great steak and good recommendation on food. Very friendly service, very child friendly. The only issue is the blue light - sets back the great experience and does not allow to see the food optics best.

Peter took great care of us.
Food, as always was fantastic.
It’s always too dark, though. At one point the lights were turned up for some reason and it was wonderful. Then it was turned down again.

It’s hard to read the menu and appreciate the colours of the food.

Very over priced for the quality of food. Service was excellent but the food was sub par at best we were 4 people and had the vegetarian option the chicken and 2 steaks and nobody enjoyed the meal. Sides were awful and we pretty much left them all untouched. The chicken was a roll of dark and white meat all stuck together and deep fried, really did not meet our expectations and we definitely won’t be back. Was hoping to find a new option while Hys renovates but this was definitely not it 😢

Whenever we fly in from Texas we usually save this restaurant for the night before we leave. The service atmosphere staff and owner are outstanding and treat you like kings and queens. It's our favorite restaurant. Highly recommend.

When we got in the host got us to our seats right away and took care of coat check which was a great way to start off our evening.

We were helped as soon as we were seated, our waitress was very nice and pleasant. One thing i loved was that our water glasses were never empty. The seats were comfortable, tables had a lot of space which is important to me. The food was amazing, our steaks were cooked just how we ordered and the sides tasted amazing as well.

Everything came out in a time frame that left us never waiting too long which was also a plus. I wish it were a bit quieter so it would be easier to talk but i guess that depends on the people attending the night of.

When leaving, my coat was held up and put on me, arm by arm which was convenient and left me very comfortable. I would definitely come again.

Our first experience at Michael’s on Simcoe was one of the most memorable experiences we’ve had to date. Our standards are high and the food was phenomenal. We started with the ceviche, moved on to lobster bisque then the main was a tasting of their finest steak. Words can’t justify the ‘melt in your mouth’ taste and experience. Truffle Mac and cheese and potatoes to compliment the meal. My husband isn’t a “Mac and cheese” fan and he went in for seconds. The wait staff was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. A special thanks to Steve Spyrou, manager and experienced sommelier who made sure we paired and tried the best of the best throughout the evening. Last but not least, desert - We shared a creme brûlée with infused apple and foam. Stunning and brilliant! We will be back!

Every single thing about our experience here was beyond amazing. The food, the atmosphere and our server Etienne was spectacular. The lamb was amazing, the rib eye was fantastic. Do yourself a favor and get the truffle mac and cheese and mushrooms. The drinks were well crafted as well. If I come back to Toronto, I will absolutely dine here again.
