A fine dining restaurant should be just that, "fine dining". That title takes in not only the food but the complete package, everything from the host and hostess to the linen tablecloths. Michael's on the Thames is just that, the complete package.

Not a bad thing to say about Michael's. Great staff, lovely restaurant and excellent food. You have to get the ceasar salad made fresh at the table. Amazing. A few bucks but you get what you pay for. I'll be back.
