“Worth every penny to enjoy the incredible food by Chef Michael”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Located in a non-discript shopping area in Hiddenbrooke Golf Course area off 80 between Vallejo, Ca and Fairfield, ca. A prix fixe meal worth every penny. Chef Michael prepares your meal before your eyes. Exceptional flavors, exceptional presentation, clean fresh and wonderful. Close to Napa and worth the short drive. Check his Yelp reviews....all 5's. www.michaelwarring.com
Then again, if he gets too busy iSight not be able to get reservations. It's small about 18 seats.

“An evening with a great young chef”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Sitting at the bar watching Michael prepare our fantastic meal was like having a personal chef doing a demonstration dinner. The fixed menu was inventive, flavorful and filling, one of the best pieces of beef I've eaten. But the brioche donuts were my favorite. This is an up-and-coming young chef who is personable and hard-working. His small intimate restaurant off the beaten path at Hiddenbrooke will soon be very busy!

“stellar food, unique experience, great price!!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

I have been here twice now. About a month apart. The menus were very different, so no one-trick pony here! Absolutely delicious and unique, the food AND the experience, that is. And the price is ridiculous for what you get, ridiculously cheap, that is!!! I highly recommend this chef and this bistro. I don't know if it is actually considered a bistro, but I wouldn't call it a restaurant because it is much too intimate and charming! LOVE IT!

“A wonderful dining experience with Michael”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

His food is clean, fresh and exquisite. Still exploring, many more hits than misses as the menu changes every day. But the best part about dining at Michael Warring's is dining while Chef Michael prepares your delectable creations right in front of you. Where else can you have your chef's ear? Discuss with him the nuances of getting the pork belly's outer skin so crispy while he's doing it... See your heavenly dessert take form up close (what was that he sprinkled on it? Ask him! Yes, stand up and watch and ask!)... Don't wait to come here. Michael Warring is on his way to becoming a celebrity chef, and only those lucky enough with connections will get to experience this young chef's creativity.

Don't miss him!

“Amazing”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

This is a gem of a restaurant. The food exceeded our expectation, with the last course of monkey bread and coffee ice cream. It is a treat to watch you food being plated and to a glimpse of the process. The soup noddles were made fresh that morning, what a treat. The corkage fee is reasonable as compared to similar restaurants. I would recommend to sit at the bar counter to watch the food show!!
