My wife and I enjoyed the Chef's tasting menu with wine pairings very much. We have been fortunate enough to enjoy Chef's tasting menus from Picasso and Joel Robuchon in Las Vegas to Providence in LA to Gary Danko and Quince in SF to name a few so this was not something new to us. The price for 5 courses with wine pairings is a very reasonable $99. This is a great value for the quality of the food and drinks. In all fairness, it is unreasonable to compare a $500. tasting menu with a $200. tasting menu but Michael's does hold it's own with the better known spots for sure.
We wanted to eat upstairs but an injury prevented me from climbing stairs. Downstairs was a little bit noisy. Service was very good. Pace of the meal was perfect. The dishes complemented each other and the pairings were very good.
Though I am not in Long Beach frequently, I will look forward to coming back to Micahel's to sample more of their menu and the to die for Almond cake.
