This was my the first time here. I was familiar with Michelle Bernstein cuisine and I can say I was not disappointed. I was there for the fried chicken Wednesday special. This is a three courses meal, first course was a watermelon wedge salad with a spicy lime vinaigrette topped with cherry tomato and small cucumber balls outstanding!! second, was... More

The service given to us by Mary and Juan was great this place is a definite Miami Spice success! Can't wait to come back and try the regular menu.

We had heard great things about Michelle Bernstein and her restaurant. Maybe we were excepting something special. We entered the restaurant to be greeted by a flood of noise. This got louder as the evening progressed. It was impossible to have any conversation. Things went downhill from here. First they said they had run out of ice tea. The lamb... More

We had a delightful dinner last night. The food was innovative , fresh and healthy. The staff were polite and attentive. The atmosphere was cheerful. I live very near Cena and I have eaten here a good few times when the name was Michy's. It is a refreshing change and I will be returning with my friends as often as... More

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

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. The decor works really well and is immediately comfortable and sophisticated. The crowed is grown up and cool and interested in a nice evening. The menu is fantastic. I... 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
