“You Won't Want To Just Taste!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2014 NEW

We took our team to Michael's for our Christmas Luncheon. First, going to the oldest city is always a pleasure. Then top it off with good food and Ole. You get the best of old world Spain combined with New World Spanish food. It's a great place for tapas. Then stick around for dinner. (We've been there for dinner some time back.) Here's a hot tip. Stay away from the beef short ribs. There were only a few and the fat outweighed the beef. :( . But there was so much other food being passed around that I didn't really suffer. ;) I took pictures of my favorites. The Paella wasn't really fuzzy. That was just my photographer novice showing.

“Christmas dinner”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2014 NEW

Roses on the tables can be a nice addition, but not when they are wilted.
Floors might need to be redone; they were so sticky, your shoes were making sucking sounds.
Hors d'oevres were good, however the consensus at our table was that the entrees, especially the fried snapper was overdone and tasteless.
Even though the service was good, adding a 20% gratuity to a table of 9 seems excessive and not customary.
Parking was a real challenge!

“Second time and not the last :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2014 NEW

This is a lovely restaurant, with great ambiance and food. We visited early December, and it was all decked out for a Florida Christmas. There was a fireplace and quiet music playing. We shared appetizers and dessert, and each had a glass of wine and entree. Service was impeccable and graceful. There was a family with two small children right next to our table, but they were very well-behaved and their smiles added to our experience. Never thought I would be saying THAT!
Food was prepared exactly as we ordered, and delicious. Don't pass up dessert! I've had two different ones, and they were wonderful.
In St. Augustine, I always stay in a location that affords easy walking everywhere. For me, walking adds to the loveliness of the St. Augustine experience!

“Locals love it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2014 NEW

I recently organized a Christmas dinner gathering for our neighborhood. The tasting room was great to work with and they had everything organized as we had requested. It is such a great atmosphere weather you eat inside or out. You can tell they are passionate about their food as it is always delicious!

“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.
