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...

We have never had a bad meal at Michael Anthony's, and this past Saturday was no exception. We live in Hilton Head, and as our daughters were in town with their respective boyfriend/new husband, we took them here (it's their favorite place, too) for a wonderful family night out. The food was fantastic - from the apps to the pasta... More

The food was delicious as usual - from antipasto, to veal and a beef pasta special, to a trio dessert. Definitely always love the veal. Never disappointed. Our server, Lucy, was delightful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend for great food and a nice evening.

22 years dining in Manhattan and living in Jersey with many Italian friends still leaves room for a truly exceptional experience at Micheal Anthony's. We had the three entree wine paring tonight with a great selection of wines combined with veal, prosciutto, lump crab and pasta. We absolutely couldn't eat another bite. Service as always was top notch. Look forward... More

We had a lovely dinner with friends. Try the meatball and calamari app. Kitchen is very accommodating. Our guest ordered veal Parmesan .. Not on the regular menu. Lots of good pasta dishes. Our waiter, Finnie, was excellent !

This establishment was wonderful. The scallop dish was absolutely amazing, as was the mussel appetizer. The atmosphere is quite romantic. However, the staff went out of their way to accommodate our four-year-old child. We all agreed that this was our favorite place to eat on the island!

Every trip needs one "special dinner" and ours was here. We were a party of six and were seated at the Chef's Table. Since we had the benefit of the TripAdvisor reviews, our level of expectation was pretty hight and they delivered. The appetizers were fabulous, particularly the prosciuto with melon. Every entree was greeted with enthusiasm and the wine... More

We were in Hilton Head for the week and someone in one of the shops recommended this restaurant. The food was delicious and Caitlin, our server was wonderful. We all (there were 4 of us) loved what we had (portions were a bit small) except one salad which we were not charged for. Nice atmosphere too. We will definitely visit... More
