Would go again. Had the crabcake as starter and veal chop (main course) with Miraval rose. Very tasty crab and succulent veal. Main course also comes with vegetables and potato so it is a healthy and full meal as well. Bar if you want to enjoy some drinks before dinner. Upper class place.

This is a very attractive restaurant with outdoor seating. We had eaten here last year and enjoyed it very much. Primarily known as a steakhouse, we decided to go off script and have a non-steak meal (primarily because we had just eaten steak the night before). Promptly seated inside, we were quick to order our cocktails and start reading the... More

Had reservations for dinner, timely arrival and then promptly ushered to an empty dining room at a table by the exit door. Would not have minded but the dining room remained empty except for the two of us all evening. There was an outside café that was lively and we certainly should have been moved there after a short time.... More

Excellent dinner in the rear patio seating area. We selected the filet and the grouper crab meat special. Wine recommendations paired nicely. Chocolate mousse dessert was light and a nice way to end the evening.

Dinner at Michael's is always a treat. The atmosphere is sultry and you can relax with a cocktail and people watch the bar scene. The snapper special was divine. Try the foie gras sliders. They are to die for. The scallops and brie are always a good choice. Looking forward to dining again next month.

We tried this restaurant based on the recommendation of a couple that we met last year on vacation and we were not disappointed. We ordered the filet, pan seared snapper, key lime pie, and a bottle of wine ($20 off). The food was great. We also received excellent service and were not rushed at all. We sat inside and it...
