I have been to Michael Anthony's twice in the last year. Both experiences have been top notch. Their wine selection is wonderful. Their servers are knowledgeable about the menu and are eager to provide the best possible experience. I had a corvina dish the last time I was in, prepared Livornese style. It was delicious. Reservations are recommended.

We received this complimentary seating for our purchase of Marriott Vacation Club points. We thoroughly enjoyed our host, Elijah, who worked behind the bar. He was very knowledgeable of Italian wines and some comparisons to US west coast wines from Oregon and Washington to Southern California. The entree selections were small in portion but very delectable and allowed the selected... More

My husband and I have been to sips & bites several times and always enjoy it! Elijah is extremely knowledgeable and provides excellent service. I've also been to the cooking school a couple of times and really enjoyed it! We highly recommend it.

6 of us went for dinner and never stopped smiling about the food or laughing with the waiters, Jay and ???. They were a great team and both knew their stiff inside and out on the food, the wine and the details of how the restaurant makes it own specialty drinks. Truly an enjoyable and outstanding meal!

Very nicely decorated "white table cloth" restaurant. Food and service are excellent. We usually go with a large group of friends and have never been disappointed. All your favorite Italian dishes and then some. Upstairs dining is cozy and charming. The bar is good for dining as well.

Outstanding food and service. Favorite restaurant on Hilton Head. We had a birthday dinner there last night and Lucy was our server. She was outstanding. Be sure to try profiteroles for desert and Limoncello. Both made in the kitchen . Yummy.

The atmosphere is very nice and the service was excellent. I think that the value is very fair for an upscale restaurant.

This place is fantastic!! We went for a cooking demonstration, which was so good, and then decided to come back for dinner later that day. The class is great- I'm not a fan of cooking, but I actually really enjoyed watching them and learning how to do make new dishes. And the food at the restaurant is delicious!! Definitely don't...
