Went for a birthday dinner. No one asked if it's a special occasion considering that we were there for the first time. Some restaurants do. It was an early dinner so we got the tables early. Atmosphere is mellow and nice. We would have appreciated a better view though. The restaurant was empty when we arrived and still we were... More

I hadn't been to Michael's on The Thames for several years. I wanted a return to simpler times when dining was elegant & mostly prepared at ones table. I wasn't disappointed..

Attentive staff, drinks were never empty, the food was perfect. He had pork loin and I had pasta. We had chocolate pate for dessert, all divine!

The service was pretty good, although three different people seemed to look after things. The table side made Caesar Salad was excellent, my Strawberry Daiquiri was excellent but we each had a steak. His was good not great and mine had little to no seasoning and flavor, and was not a tender steak. (New York Stip med rare). The atmosphere... More

My wife and I attended a cooking class at Michael's on the Thames to learn how to make their famous salad. An interesting new concept where groups of people are shown and then participate in making ceaser salads under the guidance of restaurant employees. For the fee of $25 per person you attend the class and get to eat lots... More

We were here for Valentine's dinner, ordered the chateaubriand for two. It is supposed to be table side service. All it was is a flame briefly reheating food, previously cooked, on a platter. There were plenty of vegetables, simply cooked with no seasoning. The meat was good but not a lot there. Potato wedges were quite nice. We also ordered... More

I attended a business dinner meeting at Michael's earlier this month and was very impressed with the ambiance as well as the food. There is adequate parking right outside, you are greeted at the front door, the staff are friendly and helpful. Washrooms are clean. Service for the 20 of us was expertly timed so there were no long waits... More

Michael's on the Thames has been around for years and we have visited there many times, although not recently. They were part of the Londonlicious promotion in 2017 so we went with another couple to take advantage of the price offer of $30 (or $40) for a three course meal. The beverage selections include local as well as national and... More

Excellent food and good size portions. The table side prepared Caesar Salad was one of the best Caesar Salads that I have had in a long time. The Chateaubriand that was also done tableside was great too but I think it would have been a better experience if the meal had been all prepared table side vs. just heating it... More
