Went based on TA reviews and recommendation from a local. We had meatloaf and steak, were superb. Chef is from Morton's in Chicago. Glad we went.

Was a member of the family for a Friday wedding. The bride and groom had arranged for the guests that were in town to eat at Michael's on Thursday night. What a treat! Great wine, great food, great atmosphere! Will definately go back!

it seams like we are always celebrating an occasion in Key West. The place we go for these celebrations is Michaels. Such a class act with wonderful food. We had lots of special attention for our party of four, and like in past years the food was excellent. Three of our party had the filet and one had sea bass.... More

Michael's is truly a fine and very professional restaurant. It would hold its own in any major city and as such this restaurant stands apart from the 99% tourist joints in Key West. Reservations are a must. We missed out on the terrace and on Wednesday evening every table was full by 7 p.m.. Michaels has a great menu selection... More

We haven't had a steak in ages, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity. We arrived and had a couple of glasses of wine with our Caesar Salad, which was quite good. For entrees I had a Strip and my wife had a Filet. The meat was prime, cooked perfectly for each of us and delicious. We had a nice... More

We have been living in Key West for a little over a year and this was our first visit to Michaels. Definitely not our last! Beautiful decor, service and food. Definitely worth finding as it is off the beaten path of most tourists. Can not wait to go again! They have large or small plates of most items on the... More

Michael's was highly recommended by everyone we talked to but based on our experience, it is over rated...at least on the night we were there. Loud dinner time evening rubbish clearing operations across the street spoiled the outdoor ambience of an otherwise lovely residential setting. And the restaurant's signature meatloaf entree was waaaay overcooked and a yellowtail fish dish was... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Michael's. We sat inside and it was very quiet and romantic. It was very nicely decorated with lower lighting. Our waiter Rob was great and very informative. He gave great suggestions for dinner that we enjoyed. I had the filet mignon that was done to perfection. You could cut it with a fork it... More

Quieter place to eat than all the noise of Duvall St. Very busy so recommend reservations. You can eat at the bar on a first come basis. Would return for sure.
