We went to Miceli's based on a recommendation from a friend. It was on a Saturday evening and I feared it would be packed, which it was, but the staff kept the tables turning quickly and we were seated immediately. Our server, Steve was very pleasant, attentive and quick to respond to requests for various things. I was impressed first by his offer to replace my #1 choice - crab cakes with my #2 choice of shrimp scampi if I didn't like the crab cakes. I liked the crab cakes but not my choice of a side of penne with red sauce. The penne was al dente but dry and could have used more sauce.
The salad came with the best bleu cheese dressing I think I've ever had in a restaurant. Plus, it came with some extra crumbles of bleu cheese which made it even better!
My husband had the fried grouper and fries which were both good. Again, he really likes crispy, thin batter on the fish and thought this batter was a little thick.
When I requested a glass of Pino Grigio, the waiter brought a bottle of "house" Pino Grigio that was $12 a bottle and said I could take home what I didn't drink. I asked if I could have a taste before buying the bottle and was informed that there wasn't an open bottle to take a taste from. I suggested to our waiter that if management offered a taste before buying, they might sell a few more bottles!
All in all, we liked it enough to go back again. There are many interesting and classic dishes that I'm looking forward to trying.
