Just left Michaels and my sister and I had a delicious dinner! We arrived around 4:45 for dinner, we didn't make reservations but we were pretty sure we wouldn't need them given the early arrival time. Got seated promptly . I love the layout and decor of this restaurant as it is comprised of different rooms that gives it the... More

Arrived around 1pm so it wasn't crowded, but we had to wait over 5 minutes to be seated. We were all hungry so we ordered meals when the waitress took our drink order. It was almost 30 minutes later our food arrived. There was 3 wraps, a hamburger and a roast beef sandwich. Nothing special so it should not have... More

We have been to Michael's on several occasions but tonight we held a family party for my mom's 99th birthday. It was absolutely perfect from beginning to end even with 14 people ordering different entrees. Everything came out hot and delicious, perfectly seasoned - mom was thrilled as were we all. We definitely plan to continue to dine at Michael's... More

The food is always excellent at Michael's, but last night's experience was quite special. When my husband made the reservation, they asked if it was a special occasion, and he shared with them that it was our anniversary. We received the royal treatment! When we opened our menus, "Happy Anniversary" was printed on the inside cover. We were served complimentary... More

I went to visit my daughter, who is a student at Colgate, and had a very nice lunch at Michael's. It's about a 10 minute drive from Hamilton. We went on a Saturday at 1pm and there were only two other tables occupied in the main dining room... a bit worrisome. But we settled in and I really liked the... More

Wow, what a fabulous fine dining experience! Everything our party ordered was fantastic, from the calamari, to the beet salad, gnocchi with lobster and shrimp, spinach ravioli, steak, and chicken special. The dessert menu looked fabulous but we were stuffed and could not fit in another bite! The chef/owner came out and greeted us after our dinner, very personable and... More

This place exceeded any expectations we had in our mind. The moment you walk through the door it begins. A friendly welcome and an offer to take your coat. We arrived in casual dress but were treated as if we arrived in black tie and gown. The service from Andrew was attentive yet not intrusive. The ambience was calm and... More

Stopped on the way home from Manhattan and had a superb meal. My spouse is very finicky about his shellfish and said the lobster bisque was as good as anywhere. The food was outstanding and the bartender, Nicole, provided outstanding efficient and friendly service.
