ABOUT Mike's Bistro

Mike's Bistro has moved to 127 East 54th Street (between Lexington and Park Avenue) and the new location is twice the size of its original location. The new Mike's Bistro is a 180 seat establishment with a 25 seat bar, 5 private room and a new menu. Don't worry, your favorite signature dishes are still on there but Chef Mike has added seasonal bounty,  healthy "simply prepared" dishes and fresh fish crudo. 

Mike's Bistro was opened with the intention of bringing the standards of kosher dining in line with the best restaurants in the city. A decade later, Chef Mike continues to raise the bar for himself and his staff.  In fact, the restaurant received a “24” in food and “22” in service in the 2013 Zagat Survey stating “Kosher food gets the ‘gourmet’ treatment at this Upper Westsider where the eponymous chef-owner turns out ‘delicious’ New American dishes; ‘wonderful service’ and ‘Mike going from table to table’ adds value.” Indeed, when one visits the new Mike's Bistro location, the primary goal is to relax and trust the Chef to help plan an excellent meal.  As the restaurant has blossomed over the years, the growth and development of the menu is remarkable. Kosher diners bring non-kosher friends to Mike's tables, demonstrating the fulfillment of Mike's goal with satisfied expressions all around.

Word first spread about Mike's signature Duck Gnocchi, a favorite among all who set lips to a savory spoonful. Once he sets the hook, Chef Mike reels you in with hearty and imaginative entrees, serving classics like lamb shank and Bar-B-Que glazed short ribs. Try the new Seasons Bounty Eggplant Trio, Fungus Among Us and Sufferin' Succotash for a hearty and unique experience with seasonal ingredients. And if you're on a diet or prefer your chicken and steak without any sauces, the new menu has many "Simply Prepared" options including baby chicken, duck breast, rib eye 10 oz. fillet, veal chops and lamb chops. The courtesy of the staff and the warmth of the dining room have always been noted by frequent patrons as the perfect accompaniment to a great meal. When one of Mike's waiters suggests a dish or a modification on a request, you can bet they have your best interests at heart.

The Bistro is perfect for dates, family get-togethers, parties and weddings. Guests are offered three choices for seating:  a sunny and private atrium, a spacious and stylish dining room and an upstairs area with hidden tables and high ceilings. Each can be rented or reserved for a special occasion.  If you want a particular table, be sure to let them know early because the Bistro can fill up quite quickly!  There is also an amply stocked bar full of premium liquors and scotches. Several top-notch wines have found their way to the list; so one can enjoy a meal with affordable merlot or splurge on exceptional cabernet.

Mike's Bistro 12/26/14

In my experience, there has never been, a kosher restaurant, until Mike's Bistro that met EVERY excellent standard possible. The food was out of this world fantastic! Our waiter, Lonnie, anticipated our needs, was very personable and very professional, and the atmosphere was just beautiful. Although it is very pricey, it was worth every cent.

Shira A- 11/09/14

Mike's Bistro is a high class restaurant. If one has a business meeting, date or wants to treat someone to a fancy dinner, Mike's Bistro restaurant is the place to go. The atmosphere is nice, peaceful and quiet. The portions of food are large enough that a pair of two could just order a few starts and share them all. The service time at Mike's Bistro is fast. The lighting and light music in the background makes for a romantic atmosphere for a date to get to know each other. The food is eloquent and tasty. I had a great first date experience there.

The Loft Steakhouse
David Mosberg- 06/11/14

It was last minute on a Thursday evening and I remembered hearing of the change over of Bistro 1310 to The Loft located in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn which i don't normally frequent. After hearing that the quality of food ambiance and service was as good as the Manhattan steak house but at a slightly less expensive price we decided to try it out.

The restaurant gives a very old world feeling, with exposed brick walls with a very eloquent but not over powering ambiance.

The Menu is what I would say is classic American Steak House with a slight flair. For appetizers we had the chicken soup, and gnocchi sweet breads.  The soup which was not $19 might have been $7 and was definitely tasty with a little emphasis on salty which I enjoy.  The sweet breads were just delicious and savory coupled with gnocchi brings me back to the duck gnocchi at Mike's Bistro.

For our main dishes my wife had the skirt steak which was cooked to perfection, flavored nicely and a very generous portion for the non Manhattan pricing. I had the short ribs which for me is my go to, tell all dish about whether I give my blessing the on the food, and the restaurant gets my blessing!  The short rib was a tender as possible with a classic bbq sauce set on top of mashed potatoes and crispy onions on top.

Now what is the big winner for me and honestly most important was the service.  I can't find any faults it was just perfect.  The restaurant was busy and had plenty of attentive staff, they were knowledgeable, water glasses were always filled, and food came out in a timely manner.  Id like to make a note here this was in a busy restaurant while a Bar Mitzvah was beginning in the party room upstairs.  I give the Owner/ management a lot of credit for having numerous waiters and bus boys and prepared for a busy evening, to often I am in high end restaurants and service is lacking due to short on staff and a real restaurateur/ chef knows this is just as important as good food.  To show you how happy we were with service we tipped extra on top of the 18% that was included.

Last but not least as I hinted too earlier, this restaurant gave me a feeling like I was sitting in Mike's Bisto just in Borough Park.  In my opinion that is a great compliment because Mike's Bistro to me equals a perfect balance of American cuisine coupled with great service ambiance and even better food.

i went last night with my family to mikes bistro and we really loved it. i started with the duck gnocchi which is to die for it was delicious another wonderful entree which i had was the potatoes and corned beef which was also awesome. For the main i had the boneless short ribs which was the most softest cut of meat i have ever tried. it was out of this world the side of mashed potatoes were also superb. for desert i had the warm apple annie which was unbelievable and i tried some of my wifes choclate pecan pie as well as some choclate fondue. then the owner himself came to our table for a little shmooze and he summoned one of the waiters to bring us his ice cream/sorbet sampler on the house which was also very good. all in all i had a wonderful time the service was extremely fast and very courteous. i will definetely be back there again.

Enough with the imposters of kosher cuisine. Chef Mike from Mike's Bistro is the REAL DEAL!!! His dishes can compare with some of the best in THE WORLD!!! (Kosher and Non) If you haven't had a meal at Mike's Bistro yet you should not be able to comment on this site!!!

The dishes are daring and opulient, but for the prices the service should be more attentive and in sync with the quality of the food. I felt like college kids with summer jobs were serving me. The ambiance and decor should be more in sync with what the CIT trained chef is trying to present. I'm not sure the place knows what it is yet.

After hearing some positive comments, we ventured to make dinner reservations with a friend who does not keep kosher. We had an extremely disappointing experience, from the agonizingly slow service--there was only one other table occupied--to the overcooked steak, which went back once adn returned only slightly improved, the fatty lamb, and the sparse sweetbreads. The black bass was excellent, the only positive note for the evening. It is my unhappy experience that kosher restaurants just don't care to get it right consistently because they have a captive audience.
