For that person in the group who just doesn't feel like beef,there are other yummy choices. Try the cognac chicken ,the pasta choices or the pan seared scallops. We were surprised to find so many good alternatives to enjoy at a steakhouse.

I hadn't been to MG in a while. Went with 3 friends on a Saturday night. Began with a lovely antipasto with hard and soft cheese and 2 types of sausage and hot (really hot!) peppers. Also tried a chickpea and sausage app which was fabulous! The fellows split the cowboy steak and the ladies had the salmon which was... More

I have been here once a year for the past few years. Steaks were great as always but the service was a bit off this time. Tried to take our order right away, then forgot about us when we said we weren't ready. Runner tried to deliver our apps to the table next to us, then when they brought dinner... More

We have never been to Michael Gennaro's but wanted good steak. It did not disappoint. Liam (Danny) out waiter was on top of everything. We had great steaks, cooked to perfection with Brussel sprouts and mash potatoes. We ended with the bread pudding and cheesecake. Everything was excellent. We will definitely be back. Service is top notch!

Yes it's located in a third rate plaza. You can wash you hair and clothes and even rent a car!!! Not to mention, two bars, as well as a Japanese and Thai restaurant. The interior is tired mid 80s. Love the drop ceiling! There is zero atmosphere! The menu is limited in all aspects. App, entrees, and sides. Many great... More

I've been there on a number of occasions, both personal and business. I've often recommended to out of towners. They have never been disappointed.

Calamari app was tasty. Good sauce. Our steaks were excellent. Service was also excellent. It is pricey. NYC steakhouse prices but not quite that level of quality. But, it's the best steakhouse in the area.

Mediocre service, Dover sole was over-cooked and drowning in sauce, steaks under cooked and not tasty. Went for a special dinner, was embarrassed that I suggested it. Pricey and so not worth it.

This restaurant is upscale, and the service is very attentive. The food is part steakhouse, part bistro. The ambiance was nice, many people celebrating special occasions...Probably because of the prices, as a steak with a drink could be close to $60. Well worth the prices, but be prepared.

We came here for a birthday dinner after hearing great reviews. We were somewhat disappointed in the overall meal. It was pricey for small portions and the food was just okay.
