We've visited St. Augustine a number of times and this was our first visit to Michael's but it certainly won't be our last! We visited the town for the Christmas festival of white lights (probably not what it's formally called!) and found Michaels almost by accident. It specialises in contemporary Spanish food and we ate in the lovely little courtyard... More

What a delicious meal! Our waitress Rachel did an awesome job, and only her third night working here!! My husband and I enjoyed and shared four different tapas dishes and we each had our own desserts! I highly recommend the espresso brownie!! Can't wait to visit again!

We were Last at Michael's in November 2014 and we are pleased to have the same incredible dining experience - both the food and the ambiance - 2 years later. Some highlights were the steak tartare, goat cheese flatbread, the hanger steak skewers, great wine selections by the glass and an attentive staff, including our server, Gregor. End of the... More

This cannot be the restaurant we have read about here on Trip Advisor. We selected this restaurant to celebrate our 33rd anniversary and bottom line, this dining experience failed on a few levels. From the get go, we had parking issues, frozen bread issues, overly chatty waiter issues, expensive cold entre issues, gloppy soup issues. We sampled the MTR platter... More

Wow!!! We are very grateful you chose to celebrate your anniversary with us, and disappointed that you felt so bad about your experience. We reviewed our security tapes, and spoke with our team regarding your review. We are a small family owned business, and this is the kind of thing that really can impact our reputation.

My husband and I dined here over the holiday weekend. We were able to get a nice table in their patio area which was nicely lit and heated. Our service was great and thoughtful even though there was a bit of a crush of people. My husband raved about his fish with a lovely cauliflower puree. I had the burger... More

If you like great atmosphere, service and food, this is the spot. I have been to Michael's three times and each time was as good as the last. Very reliable and consistent. Sometimes that is difficult to find in restaurants. I also like the fact they offer smaller plate portions (Ala tapas). After all, this place boasts a The beef... More

We went on a Lincoln Date Night through our local dealership, Bozard Ford Lincoln in St. Augustine, Florida. We were very happy with our dining experience. The place was beautiful. There was a relaxed element that made us feel very comfortable. The music was soft and ambient. Our server delivered a pleasant experience that caused us to make plans to... More

We recently had the Chef's table with wine pairings at Michael's Tasting Room. While the multiple dishes were truly delectable and crafted with care, we weren't as impressed with the wine pairings, which seemed a little pricey for what was served. And we've done Chef Table experiences at other fine dining establishments before.... While we'll certainly return, because the quality... More

I grew up in St. Augustine and highly recommend Michael's Tasting Room. I always enjoy myself when I go for dinner. The staff and owners all help each other and work as a great team. One of the top 5 places in St. Augustine to dine for sure.

We (the groom's family) hosted a wedding rehearsal dinner at Michael's Tasting Room last week. I say dinner, but it was actually a tapas reception with wine and dessert. We had an amazing tower of shellfish (impeccably fresh shrimp, oysters and stone crab claws), a charcuterie station of luscious meats and cheeses (jamon and manchego among many, many others), Spanish...
