Restaurant Michael Schwartz provided a great experience for us - the poolside setting was dark at night and sparsely lit - but this created ambience...service was business-like and unobtrusive. Food was excellent, especially the Mussels and Hanger Steak. The mussels were probably the best either of us have ever had. Overall I would highly recommend this place unless you are... More

The food was very good, albeit overpriced (it's in a hotel after all) and they didn't mind us wearing our Christmas party hats! Staff at the Raleigh are very nice.

Fantastic ambiance, service, and food. The New Years brunch offered bottomless mimosas and an eclectic menu that had something for everyone. Had a wonderful time and the service was phenomenal. Wes, the manager, even stopped by to check on us and make sure everything was to our liking. The whole experience was wonderful and I definitely will be returning soon... More

This was my 1st time at this restaurant. I have been to his other restaurant Michael's Genuine 2 years ago and it was great. This one is different, it is more upscale. The ambiance is great. Outside seating under sea grapes and around the pool with beautiful lighting makes the experience utterly memorable. Food was great too. We tried several... More

We had high hopes for Sunday brunch as we always enjoy Michaels's Genuine in the Design District. Food was average at best, though my heirloom tomato salad was a complete failure. Tomatoes were not ripe and were sliced very thin- more like a meal accoutrement than a meal. Whoever sent this dish out of the kitchen should be embarrassed. Service... More

The Raleigh Hotel was just down the street from where I was staying, so decided to stop in for breakfast at Michael Schwartz before hitting the beach. Glad I did because the food was outstanding - so much better than the restaurant where I was staying (Terrazza at the Shore Club). Had the breakfast burrito which was fantastic - fresh... More

I heard about this restaurant in Australia's Gourmet Traveller. The ambience was perfect for my expectation of what Miami should look like so didn't disappoint. We sat down & my husband & kids were underwhelmed by the menu choices. I didn't share their views. But, once everyone had chosen meals and our food came we were very impressed--the food was... More

I love this place. The food is clean and classic. The ambiance is gorgeous. Try their lemon ricotta pancakes and the egg white frittata!!! And omg the doughnuts are also spectacular, and my friend even had gluten free pancakes, what a treat! The service is exceptional! You won't be disappointed :)

We ate here three times when we stayed at the Raleigh, we enjoyed all of our meals, although it is a tad expensive. Service was very good too.
