My husband and I picked Michales for our anniversary dinner. The inside is nicely decorated and it appears they have live music from time to time. The bread with spicy pesto butter ( I think that’s what it was called) was really good. My husband had a strip steak and mashed potatoes ( he loved the potatoes) and the steak was good too. I ordered the chicken french, the chicken was cooked perfect and the sauce had great flavor. We ordered three deserts to close out the night. The waffle ice cream sandwich was the special for the night and it was great, it has Carmel gelato in the middle. All of the staff was very friendly and everything was really responsible priced.

Never ate here before. Drove up and saw an unassuming store front restaurant and had my doubts. However, we were pleasantly surprised! Very well appointed setting for our group of 10 diners. Service was attentive and informative. Menu though not extensive had a nice variety of choices in the Italian vein. Abundant portions between the salad and entree. We passed on dessert. We would definitely visit again and would highly recommend it to others.

I have been begging to go to dinner here for so many reasons! I haven’t been able to get here in a bit but it’s truly always exceptional! You are always met by Michael or his lovely wife Priscilla the owners when you check in! Right off the bat you feel special! The ambience is perfect! You wouldn’t know the restaurant was in this plaza for sure. I suppose that’s what makes getting there such a great thing! I was taken there and I will forever be thankful. The food is always top notch! I never have to question my choices because they are always spot on during my visits. I have been a server for nearly 20 years and in all fairness to the foodies or out of towners that visit my establishment I always make this a necessary stop suggestion in the Rochester area! I cannot wait to get back

The food is exquisite. Thursday night live band music is relaxing. The atmosphere is relaxing but classy. The food is outstanding. Service spectacular. We will keep coming back.

The effort is thoughtful, handmade, high in quality and plentiful. But the reason for the hesitation is that, for the second out of three times visited, there was a consistent taste imbalance issue in the sauce—undercooked wine addition at the last or too much acid added at the end. It’s just not the perfect savory blend one expects, but rather the sense that things got hurried which compromises the marrying of flavors.

Margaret, while we appreciate that you took the time to enjoy some of the things that make our place special, we apologize that some elements of your meals were a little off in your book. We appreciate the feedback, though, and will continue to learn and grow. We hope everything comes out just perfect on your next visit.

Sincerely,
