We had a great celebratory dinner for four. Each of us ordered a different main course and were uniformly delighted. Unfortunately, the wine list is a disappointment; given the proximity to the Niagara and Pelee regions in particular, the Canadian wine selection (particularly reds) is weak to say the least. The impact, for those of us who wish to introduce... More

The team of staff were on point, and all of the "little details" were well executed. Amazing food (try the Filet Mignon!!), all of the service staff... More

Michael's must be strictly for the wealthy white hair set in London as an average price for an entrée is $25, way beyond what a student can afford unless the parents are treating. Their 90's dated menu included all popular and favourite dishes of large portion served with potatoes and seasonal vegetables. I had the Jackson's fresh fish market Pickerel... More
