“Intimate and romantic”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

Great location in walking distance to restaurants and galleries. Only about six tables and a small bar area indoors creating a very intimate eating experience. Patio seating outdoors. Very fresh fish and ingredients, a little overloaded with very rich sauces and extras. Nice wine selection by the glass. Expensive

“Excellent Dinner, Hook & Cook”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

Went to Chef Michael's on the recommendation of friends and because we loved his food at a previous resturant. We went in to the beautiful dining room, with our fresh caught Cobia & Vermillion (?) Snapper. It was prepared 6 ways, 2 Appetizers & 4 Entrees. And bar none the best Hook & Cook we have ever had. In addition we ordered a Ravioli special, Pear, Walnut & Gorganzola salad and the Prime Rib soup, all were wonderful with soup being the stand out! With 2 bottles of wine , a couple of beers, 2 desserts and all that food the check was VERY reasonable! And I forgot to mention the generous portions!! Thank you Chef Michael & your wonderful, attentive & informed staff We WILL be back!
