Elegance in History

A very understated and low profile restaurant which is simply elegant and sophisticated without flaunting it. Loved spending time there. Had dinner during the Miami Spice month. The service was great, the location can't be better. The only downside was that there was no substitution for the... read more

Three of us sat by the gorgeous Raleigh pool (of Esther Williams fame from the 1960's) and had the $23 pre-fixe Miami Spice lunch. I was a little disappointed because I had checked the menu online ahead of time, but that day's menu was completely different (all the Miami Spice restaurants have a "menu subject to change" disclaimer) but totally...

Stayed at the Raleigh last night and had apps by the pool from Michael Schwartz's restaurant...Everything we had was as fresh as one could imagine. We had about 7 appetizers and I would order everything again. Just delicious. We will definitely go back for dinner one night to recapture the romance.

Great food and Great service. The staff was very accommodating, specially our waitress Hillary. The view of the pool from the outdoor tables is very romantic

Michael Schwartz might strike you as a low profile restaurant...yet it is everything but that! Set by the pool of the mythical and legendary Raleigh hotel, the ambiance is delicate, sophisticated, elegant and mostly romantic. The best place for a tranquil meal beneath the trees and succulent food. Octopus and tuna are a must have. Service is excellent.

For the months of August and September, there is a Miami Spice special for a number of wonderful restaurants, one of which is Restaurant Michael Schwartz. The special is $23 for a 3 course lunch and $39 for a 3 course dinner. Yesterday, I went to the restaurant for lunch and what a wonderful time. The menu varies but the... More

I was able to eat a delicious brunch by the beautiful pool of the Raleigh hotel. The setting was the perfect tone for a "recovery brunch." Service was spot on, which is even more impressive since Miami always seem to have poor service at hospitality venues. Highly recommend this restaurant

As a self labeled celebrity chef groupie I like to check out at least one when I travel. On our 4th of July visit to Miami I settled on Michael Schwartz. The ambiance was truly stunning outside beneath the trees. I honestly did not know it was outside and July is a bit steamy for outside dining. I was also... More

Beautiful setting within the Releigh hotel. Excellent food and great service. The menu is set out as small, medium and large meals. For two of us we ordered 3 medium and one large - tapas style! Lovely way to taste all dishes.
