Food was great, service was unbelievably fast, portions, however, were quite small especially the appetizers. Main courses were moderate n size. Very noisy room.

Delicious food with excellent service combined with boisterous crowd. Mucho expensive. Food stamp people need not reserve a table at this establishment.

This was my first time at Mike's Bistro. The ambiance was lovely, my husband and I had a lovely meal. Not only was the food delicious, but the service was wonderful. Every person we spoke to there was so nice and accommodating. I'd recommend this restaurant to all of my friends and family!

I would not recommend the Dry aged steak if you have never had it before. The taste and texture of the meat is totally different. I was a st timer and boy was it an expensive lesson. Nice portion and probably cooked to perfection rare but i really had to force myself to finish it and felt sick all the way home. I am not G-D forbid blaming or giving a bad review to the establishment. I am only giving a review to give warning to future 1st time diners to be wary of the dry aged steak. Definitely not like any other steak at the other high end Kosher eateries. I am a steak lover and this one i must say was nearly impossible to eat. The taste is bland not moist doesn't at all taste like steak . I must say the best parts were the pieces left on the bone not cut they were delicious. I was under the impression that it was to be seared on a hot skillet at the table like i saw them do to the table next to me but alas to mine it was not done. not sure if that added to the bland tasteless final product. My fiend had the short ribs he said tasted very good. I was extremely disappointed and actually did not feel well all night. Lessen learned be warned.

The food was excellent. I had tuna sashimi as an appetizer. It was cut into very slim slices and flavored with a ceviche sauce. For the main course, I shared the duck for two with a friend. Poorly prepared duck can be a disaster. This sliced duck breast was perfect. For dessert I had the citrus combo plate. While everything was delicious, the portions are tiny. The sashimi was like a forkful, but shaved into micro slices; the duck for 2 was not even enough for one and the dessert was small. The prices were quite high for the quantity.

The food was spectacular and well worth the price, which is not always the case. The restaurant is lovely especially the bar area. I plan to drop by there for a drink and a small plate at the bar in the near future. Mike is still the gracious host he always was and his intense love of food shows in his cooking and in the joy he takes when you love the food too!

This is the finest kosher restaurant in NYC. Mike is a creative chef who has developed all sorts of dishes not standard in other kosher restaurants. It is pricey, but superb.

What a fabulous evening out! Everyone of us in our party of five ordered different items and there was only praise for each and every dish. The cauliflower soup was smooth with just the right blend of herbs, the short ribs melted in the mouth, the steaks were cooked to perfection, and the mushroom medley was well balanced. Our server was professional and very friendly; his energy added a positive note to our dining experience. Will definitely recommend and will definitely come again!

Outstanding and prompt service. Large and lovely setting and you are not sitting on top of your neighbors! Excellent food although there was pepper on both of the steaks. This not specified on the menu, although it was light and not overpowering. Definitely recommend and will visit again on next special occasion.

Mike’s bistro lives up to its sterling reputation. Classy service and attention the moment you walk in and everyone worker there is on their A game.

Definitely try the specials but you won’t go wrong with any dish you choose.

Food was very good. We had lunch. Only issue was we were only given one option for lunch. Price fixe but nothing else available for $75! We were stuck. This should have been told when we made a reservation for lunch. It was too late to start looking as we were pressed for time. This was wrong. Almost $200 for lunch? Food was good and service was excellent. Be wary when you book here
