great space, pretty good menu

First time here, as we wanted to expand our German Village options. Sat outside on a lovely night, very cute outdoor area. Nice waiter, apologetic when he messed up an order. Starter and salad both tasty and satisfying . Entrée also very good but not as much so. I ordered the filet, and it was... read more

Went here for a business dinner with colleagues. Great service from staff who was attentive, friendly and well-timed. Meal was very good, although halibut was perhaps a touch overdone, only very slightly. Very recommendable

Started the evening with a delectable pomegranate martini, perfectly fried calamari and yummy octopus salad. Service was faultless, ambiance enjoyable. Our main courses consisted of filet, pheasant and elk. WOW, PERFECTION for each dish, as well as the sides. Can't wait to come back here when we visit our daughter again.

All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The service is always excellent and the food choices wonderful! Drinks perfect and ambiance the best. A couple people had the lasagna, husband had the Berber chicken, I had the ahi tuna and a friend had the pheasant. For appetizers we had frogs legs, salads and other seafood. I love the vibe, we...

The Chef's lasagna gets better and better... And there's real desserts now. Then I tried the DUCK EGG ROLLS.... OH MY!! He never ceases to amaze. The standard fare is excellent as usual and then there are gems besides. Still the best service and drinks around.

we come here often and are never disappointed the staff are amazing especially Alecia and Megan behind the bar. Happy hour prices cannot be beat. The prix fix menu on Monday for 30 dollars was great with a sausage strudel and the amberjack fish with fresh fried jalapeños was amazing ..

first time at G. michaels, we had to change our 8:30 reservation to a later time which was no problem for G. m's . We sat in the middle of the dining room which had a nice ambience, ( it was loud at first but once most of the customers left the noise level became tolerable). We started with the... More

G. Michael's is a beautiful restaurant in a converted house in German Village. The service is excellent and the food was fantastic. Every taste of everything we ate was wonderful. We started with appetizers of sauteed Brussels sprouts with red grapes, walnuts and apple smoked bacon and broiled oysters with chorizo, peppers, cream and pico de gallo. Big portions and... More

G Michael's continues to amaze. Our dinners were superb and the best wait staff adds to the experience. If Chef prepares pork or duck you can't go wrong. The small plates are terrific. We go back over and over.
