I would ask ahead to sit outside to enjoy the " patio experience". Sunday brunch is outstanding and they often have good entertainment.

We took another couple to this restaurant for a special celebration dinner. Our server was excellent. She was very friendly and attentive to our group. Our meals were definitely worth the price. The scallops and brie appetizer was wonderful. I ordered the Mahi Macadamia and was very happy with it. We will be visiting this restaurant again next time we... More

Have been to some of the nicer restaurants in Key West, but finding Michael's was my best thing yet! Set in a residential area, you could miss it if you blinked going by. Has seating in and outside, big tree in courtyard outside provides great character. Large outside covered bar was very nice as well. Our timing was great as... More

Small, quaint converted house. Make reservation, ask for an outside table. Only about 10 outside tables and the bar in the small courtyard. Key West casual with gourmet food.

We had a reservation at 9 pm and were seated right away. The waitress dropped off the menus telling us they were out of the stone crab.She returned and took our drink order which were 2 glasses of cab. They arrived in a timely manner along with fresh bread. Our order was taken and the salads were delivered right away... More

Recommend making reservations for Michael's. Absolutely wonderful meal. Had the porterhouse steak and it would melt in your mouth, perfect flavor. Coconut shrimp appetizer is the best. Would recommend to anyone for a nice meal out in Key West.

Went here for dinner last evening. After being seated promptly for our reservation we were able to get a martini and appetizer fairly quickly. However our entrees took 75 minutes to arrive. Totally unacceptable. The waiter did apologize and did buy our drink but it took the mood off the evening. My wife's filet was overdone, but at that point... More

My wife and I had dinner here. She had Seafood crepe & wedge salad, I had soup du jour and a seafood melody and we split a serving of key lime pie. All was very good except my seafood melody had way to much artificial smoke to suit me. We would go back to try other items on the menu.... More
