    I may be young but this place was great!!!! The best food (Steak) that I have ever had and I have had some good steak in my life. I will be coming back and can't wait to try all of you menu items. The wait staff was wonderful and all I can do is praise this place. I was a little worried at first because of the price and was hoping that it would be worth it and it was. I don't mind paying good money for a meal as long as it's worth it and when I left I felt like got my moneys worth. Thanks for a great night.

    I was so impressed with the food! I've traveled across the world and ate at many fine delicate restaurants and this one definitely ranks top on my list. I can't believe it's in Kokomo. A food critic needs to go there and write an article from the history of the owners to the romantic decor... The food just compliments the your experience to 5 stars. Let's keep them open by supporting their amazing restaurant! I had the mussels and I can compare them to spain!!! Definitely amazing cooked to perfection!!

    The restaurant was very nice visually and everyone was very friendly. Our waiter was very attentive and the food was very tasty. It is a bit pricy but the great food made up for that. It was my wife's Birthday and they were generous enough to give our party of four a free desert. Also, they gave a personal written card wishing her a happy birthday. Very nice touch. The whole experience was really nice.

    I infrequently visit family in Kokomo & am always frustrated in the lack of dining options. The choices are limited to chains or driving an hour to Indianapolis. I stumbled upon A. Michael's online & location is a little tricky. However, the menu was on par with many of my favorite seafood restaurants, which is rare in the middle of Indiana. I elected the scallops, pineapple sticky rice, & carrots. I was leery to order scallops (even though they are my favorite), knowing how easily they can go wrong. They were fabulous. My mother chose the filet with roasted potatoes, and mac & cheese. Everything was made fresh to our keen delight. The highlight of the meal was the bread pudding - the best I've ever had!

    I surprised my girlfriend by coming from Oklahoma to her in Kokomo. We were wanting to go out for a nice dinner before I had to drive back to Oklahoma but I didn't want to have to drive down to Indy or elsewhere before spending 13-14 hours driving the next day. We searched for places in town and came across this. From the first bite of our starter all the way through dessert we were both amazed at the taste of the food and none of the reviews can begin to oversell how great the food is from start to finish. I saw some complaints about service but had no problems. Our server, Michael, took great care of us and had some fun stories to keep us entertained. Overall I would easily recommend to anyone in the area.

    The menu lacked a dinner salad that was plain enough for a dieting person and all the entrees were very sauced Very expensive for what you got and the loud radio music was certainly not appropriate for an upscale restaurant. We made a reservation on line that they couldn't find inspite of us with a confirmation number. Disappointing!

    Set reservation for two at 715. Arrive at 7:05 and hostess takes us tithe bar area despite half the restaurant being empty. The bar area was extremely loud do to a class reunion group. Sat for 15 minutes before being greeted. Bar area was half full! Wanted a nice quiet dinner for my date. We laughed and said so much for that idea! We had to practically yell to talk to each other! Ordered food and salad. Twenty minutes later got main course and no salads. They apologized and brought a salad on the house. Later the waitres refilled our water and dumped half a pitcher of ice across our table.

    My wife and I have been here three times now and currently have reservations for another visit. We have tried seafood and the steaks and both were excellent. Steaks tender and cooked to order, salads excellent with dressings made on premises, crab cakes loaded with crab and very tasty, tea very flavorful to boot so what more could you ask for except cheaper prices. Even for an upscale restaurant the price was pretty competitive so I won't complain. Ambiance was pretty good too. Located on the west side in a strip mall but the place was redone and it looks great. Give it a try. I think you will like it.

    Wow! Been going to Kokomo at least once a year for many years and thought we were completely tied to all the chains along US 31. The food...Friday during Lent...we were tied to seafood. No problem. I had huge, meaty scallops to die for, and my husband had crab cakes with a nice corn salad on the side. The presentations were fabulous and the taste was even better. Since I had given up alcohol for Lent, I called the Pope to ask if I might try one of the wines from their extensive selection, and he granted my request :) After generous sampling supplied by the friendly bartender, I chose a wonderful Cabernet. We sat at the bar, which reminded me of the old, ornate bar-back in St. Elmo's. It was simply a perfect experience.

    We had a party of 8, had made reservations - My husbands Birthday. Any server would see that as a gold mine; well, most would. Not the bartender / server we had. She rarely checked on us... we were there for nearly 75 minutes before we received our salads / appetizers, not because it took a long time to prepare, but because our orders were taken until after we had been there for over a half an hour. Same with dinner. One of the best meals in town and usually we have fantastic service. Unfortunately, this night's service didn't hold up to our expectations and usual experience. Disappointed in the lack of attention our table of 8 received, but the food was wonderful and the support servers were fantastic. We'll return for sure!

    We went here the Saturday after Valentine's day and found it to be a great restaurant for special occasions. On a trip to New Orleans, we enjoyed many fine dining experiences and always find ourselves comparing every restaurant to the New Orleans experience. Wow, did this one measure up! It was busy but we were greeted, seated and our drink order taken almost immediately. The waiter was attentive but not smothering. From appetizer to entree to dessert it was phenomenal! The bread pudding and creme brûlée took us back to that foodie New Orleans vacation! Two thumbs way up!

    We thought we would give A. Michael's a try since it's re-Grand Opening under it's new name and new menu. I largely selected it as our spot for my birthday dinner/valentines date spot since they are the only Kokomo that takes reservations via Open Table. I was really being optimistic that the food and service had improved since the name change from The Quarry as Kokomo is in sore need of a fine dinning establishment. Unfortunately our experience was on par with the last time we were there and swore we would not try it again. Service was terrible from the moment we arrived and the hostess tried seating us in the bar until my wife tried a bite of the failed chocolate raspberry cheesecake.

    We have been to this restaurant twice, and have thoroughly enjoyed our experience both times. The food is fresh, of superior quality, and prepared to order. My wife and I have dined at many of the fine dining establishments of Indianapolis, and a extremely pleased that Kokomo now has one of its own. Whether you are looking for the perfect paring of fresh Salmon with house made Hoisin sauce or quite possibly the best Filet of Beef I have ever had, this restaurant will deliver.

The menu selection is good (not too many choices and not too few), the staff was well trained and friendly, The food was well prepared and plated nicely with good flavor pairings. Nice wine selection and a decent selection of draft beers. It was also a welcome change to have in house prepared desserts.

    This is the finest dining establishment in Howard and surrounding counties. This is the place to celebrate special occasions or to stop in for a cocktail in the evening. The ambience is classy and inviting. The Shrimp Cocktail, Filet Mignon, Crab Cakes, Blackened Snapper & Creme Brûlée are some of my favorite menu items. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    This was our 2nd visit, celebrating NYE this time. We were able to get a fairly last minute reservation (day before) and were seated within a few minutes of our arrival. Service started off a bit slow but there were several large parties and the restaurant was full. Once the bigger groups started clearing out, service got much better. Food was fantastic but I was a little disappointed the bar didn't have Hendrick's gin on hand to make my French 75. At first I was told they couldn't even make a French 75 since they didn't have Hendrick's until I told the waiter "it can be made with any gin, I just prefer Hendrick's". They made up for it by carrying Johnnie Walker Blue for my husband. Overall, a great experience. We'll be back.

    Our server did a very good job considering it was New Years Eve and the place was very busy. My wife was very disappointed in the ribeye steak that she ordered it was not cooked correctly and very fatty,greasy and with grissel. the good news was when it was brought to our servers attention she had the manager on duty come over to our table to take care of it.this type customer service is appreciated and will definitely cause us to return to have at least one more meal. My New York Strip was cooked to order but not the best quality for the money.

    What a delightful New Year's Eve experience! Beautiful atmosphere and delicious cuisine. A bit on the pricey side, but for the special occasions that call for much more than a chain experience can offer, pay the extra and go to A. Michaels. It's worth it. Steaks that surpass high-end Indianapolis restaurants, beautiful interior, and a perfect setting for celebrating something special.

    I was impressed with the menu right off the bat. The nights selections where some of my favorites. I had sea Scallops with wild mushroom risotto. The scallops were amazing and cooked perfectly. I frequently dine at some if the top restaurants in Indy and Carmel and am often disappointed. A. Michaels was everything I had hoped and more. I would highly recommend the braised short rib butternut squash ravioli. Amazing! Every thing was made from scratch and it tasted like it. My wife and I will be staying in Kokomo for date night. If you are a foodie. No place in Kokomo line it.

As soon as they seated us the server gave us a card wishing us a happy anniversary and after dinner gave us dessert of our choice on the house and again congratulated us on our anniversary. This place is outstanding and we will definitely make the 3 hour drive from Ohio to Kokomo again!

    The food was very good. Very good. However, the service was not "polished" by any means. The staff were friendly, actually too "folksy". Also, we heard improper grammar from a prominent staff member -- "I seen ...." Plates were not served from left - one was served from left, the other from right. Also, another dish was served from across the table. I would think that for the menu pricing that linen tablecloths could be used, at least a tablecloth with a glass on top on the table. The table tops seemed rather coarse with not even a place mat. Thanks!
