Great food and service. I have seen some complaints about service, those people are either very picky or had different staff than I did.

Been going for years. Consistently beautiful, richly prepared food. Professional service and personal attention. Can't ask for more, but we usually get more: prices are fair, and sometimes better than that.

Michaels restaurant is definitely a first class experience and the food is excellent. I have read some of the comments on goggle and don't understand what some people expect from a restaurant. If you have any experience with french cuisine, you know the portions are small, but anyone with true dining experience would prefer a smaller portion that's phenomenal over a larger portion that's average. The waiters are excellent and very attentive. This is not a restaurant that will serve 400 to 500 a night, so there has to be excellent service to remain profitable. We have been there 4 times and it just gets better each time. Strongly recommended!!!!!!!

The worst experience we've had in Chicago area. Service is non existent. Took hours to get anything and we've left early. Not sure if you can call this place classy. Called the owner the next day to share our experience, but he didn't care much. Will not recommend and will not go back ever!

Chef Michael Lachowicz is my hero. Great food! Prix Fixe is a deal, but more than that the way they have layered, the courses compliment each other. Its a definite must visit, for a special occasion, or just a nice evening with friends. Don't miss the dark chocolate souffle. Service is 4 star!

The food was excellent. In this part of town there is no other place like it for food. Nevertheless I was put off by the fact that dishes are not priced individually. I got the 3 course prix fix initially. When I added one course it was not a 4 course meal plus extra anymore but $35.00 extra, $10.00 short of my 3 course. The service was alright although they don't seem to realize that their bread is burning hot when they serve it. Now my favorite place downtown is RL on Chicago Ave where the food is more social club like and relaxed but their décor is sublime. The crowd is fun and glamorous at RL. The décor at Michael is kind of bland and utilitarian and likewise their clientele seems to be terribly conservative, old and unglamorous, ugly, compared to Chicago. I miss Spago in Chicago terribly. It was fun, full of glamorous people and the food was sensational. If they could not make it here no one will. - Cuisiniere sign at the door: cuisiniere in French means stove or is the word for a woman, a man is a cuisinier. - Cassoulette on the menu: cassoulet is the proper word.

Last night was the second time my wife and I ate at Michael's. The first time our Groupon was not honored so we rescheduled. Last night we had a 6:00pm reservation and were seated promptly. We had a 5 course dinner with 3 wine pairings. The food was good, portions were not small but tiny, and the service was incredibly poor. We skipped having coffee, even though it had been ordered, because it had still not been served after waiting about 10 minutes. We got our check at 8:30pm. Needless to say, even though the food was ok., we will not go back to Michael's, ever.
