    I think our experience was mediocre the waiter we had didn’t speak very good English so it made it hard to understand the specials and he did a poor job explaining or even acting passionate about his place of work. The food was tasty and presented well but the experience you receive from your waiter can make or break everything. He was not very warm or knowledgeable about the dishes.

    The food is excellent. The dinning room is good in the sun room. It was lovely but not outstanding. The waiters have personality and interact well with all their tables. If you have a party, the side rooms are an excellent choice (been there before). It is a bit pricey. Delicious. A special occasion location for sure. We have been several times and will return for sure. Did I mention delicious ;)

    Second time in a week… definitely great food, the feature wine was amazing… had the garden salad again-awesome… and tried the steak special - as great as the regular steak on the menu, we started with the charcuterie and bruschetta… wife had the salmon this time… will probably try something else from the menu next time to round out our choices.. have not been disappointed yet… thank you Anthony and your staff

    Tremendous food and cocktails. Avery fresh. Service was expedient but could have been friendlier. The server dis nothing wrong but was almost too formal. Back to the restaurant: meal was lovely and very filling The tiramisu was amazing and a great way to end the night

    We always go to Michael's Backdoor for special occasions. We missed 2 during the pandemic: my husband's 75th, and our anniversary. It's good to be able to eat in a special place. Tuan was very good-I like his sense of humour.

    We waited an hour and half for our dinner. Both of us ordered Gnocchi so not a complicated meal. Every table that came in after us and ordered after us was served their meal first and basically done eating or finished by the time we got ours. When we finally received ours it was the worst meal Ive had. Wallpaper paste. The gnocchi was a goopy mess. We were given the opportunity to order a new entree which we did because we were starving and it was almost 9pm now. Everyone who was there after us had left now and our (2nd)meals finally came. No one offered any apology other than a free dessert for us to share. As repeat customers we were really disappointed with the way this was handled.

    our waiter was amazing, he was helpful, cheerful and attentive whilst he was the only server in the restaurant it seems. the food was good enough, it was served warm, not hot. although i understands the special are sometime items the restaurant wishes to get rid of before it turn bad, my veal was on the special, which if i didn't eat it that day, it would be the item that would be going off in the next day or so. i'm a housewife, i cook and understands when i need to get some meat cook or not-yet. it was our anniversary dinner, i was looking forward to eating there, it was highly recommended to us, i was super hungry. the waiter have suggested the desert for us for our anniversary and the desert wasn't charged, i thought that was very thoughtful. my experience overall was good, i will go back again as i believe the next time my experience would be a much more positive one.

    We were surprised the restaurant was in a basement and found it to be very crowded and noisy. Our reservations were for 8:00 pm on a Saturday night and was not expecting so many children in the restaurant which added to the noise. The food was good and the staff were friendly and attentive. It was not an inexpensive meal and I guess giving the past Covid restrictions this is to be expected in all restaurants. Anna D. From Etobicoke
