“Always a Hit!”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

I am a huge fan of this restaurant! Once again, the attentive staff and amazing food sent me home with a smile on my face and a vow that next time, I will do DESSERT! A glass of house wine, and apps and entrees from the Light Side menu left my tummy happy and my hips no wider :) But next time, the chocolate lava cake!!

“A celebration”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We decided to go to Michael's on our last night in Key West. The food, atmosphere and staff were excellent. We also discovered a favourite wine of ours there so what's not to like?

The wine list is a bit on the expensive side and perhaps this could be thought of as a place for a celebration.

“Allen Bros filet”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

Michael's is a good restaurant. I believe that it a local favorite. I really like the " on the lighter side menu." We had an excellent filet and seafood paella. The shrimp tempura app looked like it had been previously frozen. The burrata and tomato salad was good.
