This place rocks, so much so, that I almost don't want to write a review- it's busy enough! The service was excellent, the food succulent and the portion size great. A lighter fare menu offers a 3 oz. steak, mashed potatoes and veggies for 17.00, which was more than filling. Delicious bread comes first. The regular sized portions are about what you would expect, except higher quality and more delicious than most. Care is taken in preparation and it's not mass manufactured as some restaurants feel. YUM!

We have been going to Michaels regularly for 11 years, never once have we been disappointed, the staff is highly trained, they set the bar for customer service, not only is the food 5 star, you will always leave satisfied, the staff will make sure of that. Our favorite one is Suzette, maybe because she is from the Midwest, very attentive and pleasant, the meats are from Chicago and the seafood is the freshest, while there are a number of fine local restaurants, this one is the top, not only in Key West.

We made last minute reservations for two. I ordered the Filet al Forno from the lite side menu. This is plenty for me. It was delicious. My husband ordered the Asparagus wrapped in Prosciutto and Beef Carpaccio which was very tasty. We topped it off with Key Lime Pie. Our server was Brady he was very pleasant and did a fine job. this was our second time there and we will go every time we come to Key West.

Excellent, varied menu, not your usual tourist restaurant. Very good presentation, fresh, well spiced.

Michael's is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. The service was amazing too. Ricardo was our waiter and took great care of us. The snapper and the seafood crepe were both divine. Nice atmosphere too! You can sit outside in a romantic patio setting, or inside if you'd prefer. They have small plates you can get if you aren't a big eater or are trying to save money. I had read that was only from 5:30-7:30 but were able to order off of it at 8 pm too. Highly recommend!
