    I went to Michael...

    I went to Michael's On Simcoe last month to have some steak. They served me the best of the steak food that I ever had with nice hospitality services. So keep it up.

    The maitre d' saved our evening. Our apps arrived timely and were tasty. One was a salad (not complicated) the other a lobster bisque...silky smooth and heavenly! However, there was clearly a mix up in the kitchen with our mains. About an hour and a half after finishing our apps, following 2 queries and our mains finally arrived. Although the one chicken order was spectacular, the steaks were a huge let down. The main reason for making this reservation was the steaks, but they were VERY dry and so cool that the fat had coagulated. Both were way over cooked for our med-rare request. Even our steak knives had a hard time cutting through the meat. It was more like a butter knife tearing and pulling the steak apart. Such a shame because all of our sides were hot and delicious. We mentioned our concerns with the maitre d' and he did not hesitate or argue but asked how they could help. Rather than wait even longer for 2 more steaks to cook, my guests are dessert fans so he returned with a 1977 Port and a wooden platter with 4 spectacular desserts. Although I don't drink alcohol, I recognize what a treat the Port was for my friends. Neither of us finished our steaks because they were sooo dry. I took the leftovers home for my dogs...maybe they'll be ok with them. Every staff member we encountered was very pleasant and welcoming, however with so many options for high end steaks in the city, I'm not sure if I'll rush back to Michael's. Regardless, hats off to the maitre d'. Don

    We were served by a sommelier. Forgot the name. Possibly Alex, but I’m sure there was only one in the restaurant. He was beyond what you can ask from someone serving you and explained everything from the wine to the steaks. The service was excellent from everywhere. It was my second time attending and I’ll be sure to attend another 220 times before I’m 30. I’m 26. Highly recommend it.

    We were going to a production at Roy Thompson hall that our children were a part of. We had a short time period available for dinner. Most of the other guests in the restaurant at that time were in the same situation. The staff were amazing at providing first class service and food, and allowing us to enjoy our meals wile also facilitating our schedule. Excellent!

    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. The food was amazing, some of the best food I've ever had in toronto. The atmosphere is really nice and I really like the booth setup. They give you special cutlery for the steak which is nice and they serve you you're side dishes which was great as well. So .. I definitely give the food 5 stars. With that being said, my boyfriend and I are only 22 and we were evidently the youngest people there.. or at least sitting in our area. Everyone one else was easily middle aged or at some sort of business dinners. I'm only noting this because we felt like they didn't take us seriously .. we witnessed the owner of the restaurant go to every other table to make sure they were okay and there food was good multiple times but did not come to our table once. Him nor the manager came to our table, And it made us feel weird being there and as if he didn't think we'd spend a lot of money so there was no point coming to our table. Obviously this restaurant is super expensive so no matter what you're getting your spending at the minimum $300, which for someone our age is pricey but nonetheless we came to this restaurant to prepare to spend that much and the fact that he didn't check up on us once is offensive. Our waiter was okay, looked like he was having a bad night but to us he was good. Over all, the food was so good and we're glad we got to try it but we probably won't be back again solely for the fact that we felt uncomfortable, people were looking at us weird, and the owner and management totally diregarded us just because we weren't ordering half the menu/we look very young compared to everyone else.

    What a fantastic restaurant! It is difficult to find a restaurant that can execute top marks in service, atmosphere AND food but I think that MOS has managed to do so. Atmosphere: White linen table clothes, curved booths, modern fireplace and subtle accessories to ensure privacy yet maintain an elegant modern feel. Good flow through the restaurant. Not loud not too quiet, just right. High quality stem wear and perfectly matched cutlery. Food: Husband and I shared oysters, Ceasar salads, and shrimp cocktail. Oysters were from PEI, fresh and tasty. Accompanied toppings were perfectly balanced and not overbearing. Shrimps were HUGE and I was surprised that they were as tasty as they were. Traditional cocktail sauce was very good. Ceasar salad is not made table side but tastes EXACTLY like it had been. Not over dressed and flavours are nicely balanced. I am not a crouton fan but did try one of the three on my salad and ended up eating all three. Next, my husband had the Harvest Lasagna ( its vegetarian but not vegan) and the pasta was beautifully firm yet delicate for the enclosed butternut squash filling. Very good. I had the 6 oz strip loin, medium rare, which was cooked perfectly and flavourful. It was our birthday (yes, both of us on same day) and our daughter called ahead and arranged for desserts to be presented at our table. We sampled the chocolate lava cake with ice cream which was not overly sweat. The ice cream was excellent. We also had a slice of pumpkin pie with toasted pecan nuts. Very good. Nice texture. Service: Perfection. We really appreciate wait staff that listens to their clients and follows through with their style of dining. They did not over service us, which we hate ( too many interruptions) yet we never felt like service was lacking. They immediately picked up on our pace of when we wanted our glasses refilled ( water or wine) as well as when to clear. We never felt rushed and we never had to “ search” for our server. Overall thoughts: We have been regulars at other fine dining establishments and have no idea how MOS managed to get passed us!! What a fantastic find for us, although they have been around for a few years. We most definitely will be returning and we are sure that we have found our “new” favourite restaurant in Toronto. Thank you, Sean, for a fantastic evening. We will be seeing you soon!

    The dinner was unbelievable! From the moment I entered I entered the restaurant I felt like a true VIP. I had the delicious tasting menu and I was truly blown away. The wine parings for each course were perfectly matched, making this a true culinary experience. If you are from the GTA or visiting I highly recommend attending Michaels On Simcoe. Venolia

    Good atmosphere & attentive service. The meal was expensive but beautifully cooked. Extensive menu. BEWARE - VERY SALTY. I suggest you ask that the salt is reduced, as we found it overpowering on the steak. Like too many restaurants, M annoyingly CHARGE EXTRA FOR VEG & fries ! I think this unnecessary given the cost of meals, and the relatively small cost of vegetables. Restaurants should be encouraging vegetable consumption not making at an extra ! It's perceived as a sneaky way for back-end loading costs; again not impressed.
