I had the hanger steak with asparagus and fried Yucca something. My hanger steak was just OK. Wife had scallops with risotto which was better than my steak. Appetizers were salmon deviled eggs with mustard seeds and crimini mushrooms. They were both very good. Service was very attentive.

Just came back from St. Augustine and had the opportunity to have dinner at Michael's...that place is amazing!!!! The food is excellent, the service is great, very nice, romantic setting as well. You must order the cripsy chicken appetizers, ceviche (ask for it a little spicy, yum), the cured meats and cheese are super delicious! Our waiter, "Archey" i think... More

We are in St Augustine a few times a year and have been going here each trip. We will at most times get four or five small plates. Everything was delicious tonight. The deviled eggs were outstanding and I don't like deviled eggs. Chicken thighs, shrimp, flatbread all were amazing. Our server was Archie and he is a great asset... More

After hearing positive things, one unprofessional rude waiter can send you out the door quickly. Arrived for our 7:30 reservation Sunday June 19th. Place was busy & some big groups had just left. Most tables were not cleaned so waited about 20 minutes. Sat down & Gregory approached asking what would we like to drink. Asked if Rose was available?... More

We reached out to you by message regarding this evening, but have not heard back. We apologize that this is how you felt about this evening. Greg is one of the nicest, and caring servers I've had work for me, so this is especially troubling. It was fathers day, and the staff was recovering from our first seating. You made... More

I had the Langstoa Criolla. Poached lobster, Caribbean garlic butter, peppers, asparagus, onions, tomatoes, cilantro coconut rice. The presentation was beautiful and everything was cooked to perfection. Chef Michael paired it with a glass of rose which perfectly complimented the flavors on the plate.
