We were recommended to Michaels and I'm glad we were as the food and the experience was excellent. We sat outside and even though it was incredibly warm we were drawn to the ambiance and decor, Bread rolls arrived hot and were excellent quality. For appetizers I had the onion soup and my wife the Caesar salad. Both were very... More

We made dinner reservations at Michael's after hearing good things about this place. We were sitting outside in the garden which is fine at night as heat and humidity is not much of the issue. Food is really very good. Kids could choose what they like from kids menu. Place had nice atmosphere, not crowded, friendly staff. Prices are quite... More

My wife and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary here last night. The atmosphere was very pleasant for us. We chose to sit inside, as it was a little warm outside, although the outside dining area looked very nice as well. The service was outstanding. The staff was very attentive. The food was very good and cooked just the way... More

My wife and I got married in Key West earlier this month and held our rehearsal dinner at Michaels Restaurant. They set us up in a semi private area in the back of the restaurant that was partially outside. The atmosphere was great and our server (I'm sorry but I forgot her name) was terrific. Everyone in our group agreed... More

A great time was had by all. We opted to sit at a hi-top on the patio so we could order fondue as an appetizer. It came with a large pot of bubbly cheese and an array of goodies to dip. There were five of us-all adults-so quite a diversity of food was ordered. Everybody loved everything! Our waiter was... More

After reading rave reviews on Trip Advisor, we had high hopes of a great dining experience. We were both disappointed. We were seated indoors,because of the heat and humidity. Interior needs a drastic renovation. Decor was drab and dated. My entree was a veal chop, which I specifically told our server that I preferred medium well. Also wished to substitute... More

What a fabulous restaurant! Our server Patricia was wonderful. We started with a creative scallop special that was amazing and prepared perfectly. I had the veal chop and it was the best entree I've had while on vacation in Key West/ my husband had the cowboy ribeye which was also great (although he liked my veal more). We also enjoyed...

A short, 1 block, walk from the Eden House. It's a little pricey but the staff, service and food was so delicious. I had the steak which was perfect. Others said to try their meatloaf, out of this world.
