Very well done - simple and good

After all the hype, I expected Cena to be stuffy and arrogant. Just the opposite. We were warmly greeted and treated very well from the moment we arrived until we left.

We loved the atmosphere, the bar, the personal attention from the owner. But honestly, the food and wait service were a little disappointing. I love beets, but having nothing on the table but a huge bowl of beets for 15-20 minutes put a damper on the meal. A few tweaks and this will be a fabulous place!

Michelle Bernstein is one of my favorite chefs, and the re-do of her original Michy's eaterie in Miami's Upper East Side Biscayne area is a winner. Wednesdays are Fried Chicken nights. Note - the whole table has to either have the chicken, or choose a la carte off the regular (and totally delicious) menu. Hubby and I went for the... More

The experience was enhanced by a comfortable, upscale feel, but in no way pretentious as many Miami spots can be. The proprietor knows his wines and works the tables adroitly. His wife's culinary skills make it a standout for couples, groups or family. Need to give it a try!

We have been waiting for Michy's to reopen and were able to finally try it out. Same location, slight facelift inside, but really still looks the same, new white tiles with the baby blue gives it a nice beach feel. Food: Bibb Lettuce salad - AMAZING - I would go here just to have this. I was full after eating... More

Like Michele Bernstein's quality and anticipated great meal. The appetizers/duck/cauliflower were great. My favorite short ribs was a 2-3 INCH big plate portion for a BIG price. It came out cold and waiter was hard to find. The dessert portion was minuscule. The NOISE level was unbearable. Too bad ,we will not be back. Betty

What a great place! The service is fantastic and the food....just DELICIOUS! We had the creamy polenta (which I could not get enough of!), the roasted carrots and the mushroom as appetizer and the Fettuccine Carbonara and the Half Chicken special. Unbelievably flavorful! My family is coming to visit me and will definitely take them to eat there again! Two... More

We enjoyed each starter and big plates that we ordered; the drinks also very good; waiter's service reliable and very satisfactory. But you must know that if you wish to order a domestic beer and also some imported ones, you won't get it here. If you are looking to go there for a romantic dinner, forget it and look for... More

When Michelle Bernstein worked for Mandarin Oriental everybody knew then that she was far bigger than what this grand hotel could be for her. From her earliest days on the food scene in Miami she was this city and all of its goodness personified and she was destined for greatness. When Michy's came on the scene it lived up to... More
