Nothing negative to say about this restaurant. Our food (ceviche, followed by côte de bœuf) was first rate - as good as any I have ever tasted in any restaurant, including Michelin stars. Mike, the owner and executive chef, is a total gentleman. We will return, very soon.

We had business dinner with a larger group at Mike's Bistro. Top notch service. Fantastic meals; vegan, fish and meat options all experienced. Good selection of wines. The ones we enjoyed were from New Zealand. Price level is decent for business meetings, expensive for personal coverage.

There is nothing bad about this restaurant but for the price you expect more. The food is generally bland and pretty much the standard fare.

Had a perfect dinner at Mike's Bistro last night! Cannot wait to be back in NY to go there again as I seem to be doing each time I visit lately. Great ceviche! Chicken, tasty, juicy, delicious. Even the broccoli was special. The wine was perfect and the desert: I am lost for words!

We were in New York for 2 days and wanted a special Dinner to celebrate our Anniversary. Mike's Bistro was exceptional. We are from L.A. and our restaurants are good, but Mikes was superb.. We read the chef was highly trained and the dishes proved this right. I had the Lamb chops, and they were the best I have ever... More

The food was fresh, flavors popping and a real abundance of uniquely enjoyable options on the menu. The bar was perfect, and atmosphere was happening. This is not a quiet establishment and not for those afraid to live large! Four Stars (and don't forget to have the sweetbreads) Enjoy!

We needed a kosher restaurant for some family members. We have eaten at Wolf & Lamb in the past: it was terrific. But we thought we'd try something different. What a mistake. Four of five of us had poor quality and badly prepared food. Steak was tough, short ribs and lamb shanks were tasteless. Presentation was bleak and sloppy. The... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
