“The Chef's Table - Spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2014 NEW

Lovely restaurant and great atmosphere. We had a wonderful experience at the Chef's Table. Food and wine pairings were outstanding, service is excellent (thank you Greg), and the owner, Michael, put the extra special touch on the evening by presenting and explaining each course and wine pairing. Well worth it and highly recommend this experience. Exceeded all our expectations.

“Great fine dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2014 NEW

Fantastic family owned restaurant in the heart of St Augustine. Parking is difficult, with Cuna St being very inaccessible. The great quality of the wine and food makes up for the inaccessibility of the place. There is a lot of demand in the evenings, so you are best making a reservation in advance. This is by far some of the best tapas and Spanish wine that I have ever tasted.

“Amazing Food/Wine/Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014 NEW

My wife and I drove up to Saint Augustine and was delighted to hear about a Wine and tapas resturant with a traditional Spanish atmosphere so we tried it out. Michaels Tasting Room was much more than we expected. The server Jason lead us down a culinary experience we will never forget. We started off the evening with some bubbles and manchego cheese. He suggested a few tapas (small plates) such as the shrimp Gambas and a bowl of steamed Maine mussels in garlic, white wine, butter and topped with the Truffle fries that were to die for. After a few glasses of wine we ordered our entrees. I ordered the SECO de CORDERO (Lamb shank w/ Kale garbanzos and carrots) and my wife ordered the VIERAS ( Pan seared diver scallops). I must say both meals were mind blowing. The atmosphere was delightful and the overall experience will never be forgotten. Thank you Michaels Tasting Room we WILL be back.

“Incredible from start to finish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014 NEW

what a wonderful evening! I recently dined here as a group of 4 and could not have been more pleased with the experience. From start to finish, we were impressed. The hostess greeted us with a friendly smile and showed us to a beautifully set table. Our waitress was knowledgable, attentive, and friendly. The wine was delicious and paired perfectly with the selection of tapas on the menu. The food was a work of art, what a talented chef! we can't wait to visit again soon!
