  • "The perfect atmosphere for a Sunday Brunch. The salmon was delicious addition to our Eggs Benedict. The kind restaurant that makes you smile when you walk in the door."

  • "Dining with Chef is a relatively new dining experience at Michael's on Mondays: one seating (at 6:30), fixed menu, fixed price ($25). It's an adventure, because you never really know what Chef has come up with until you get there. It's clearly a way for him to create new dishes in a limited environment - to see what works and what doesn't. Genius! Chef's discussion before dinner is served is always entertaining and educational. So far, these dinners have been regional: everywhere from Mexico to Sardinia. It's a lovely experience."

  • "Had a wonderful Sunday brunch to celebrate a friends birthday. The food was so good and the setting couldn't be beat. Was able to have a nice conversation without having to raise our voices. So nice and relaxing but most of all ENJOYABLE!! Plus, the Bloody Mary's were awesome!"

  • "Went here for a special dinner with my wife. We ordered an appetizer, salad and entree. The waitress totally forgot the salad. I had the sesame tuna steak. The portion was large, but the tuna was bland and came with nothing to compliment it, just Cole slaw. I have had better seared tuna at Outback Steakhouse. Wife had the filet. The steak was just ok. It came with "steamed vegetables", which turned out to be steamed celery. A little weird! Will not go back, would rather just go to sushi cafe in the same shopping center."

  • "We had a group of 6 folks and wanted something good. Michaels delivered with exquisite combinations and outstanding service. Everything we ate we truly enjoyed. From the prosciutto wrapped fruit appetizers to the soup if the day to the salad made from sheer goodness to the schnitzel of all things combined with pickled cabbage. Subtle and superb combinations to tease the taste buds. Give it a try"

  • "As usual, the food and serviced were both excellent. We've had the gazpacho previously, but it was up to its usual high standards as one of the best we've ever tasted. We did think the brunch menu had somewhat fewer selections than on previous occasions but the eggs benedict, mezze plate, and shrimp were all good. "

  • "Headed into Montgomery for a paddle wheel boat ride then onto a smoke stop at a nextdoor humidor. Then a short walk to the restaurant for a dinner so good you eat the whole salad. "

  • "Greeter was very welcoming and set evening off to a cheerful start. Lovely food presentation. Flavors pleased everyone. Would appreciate a fantastic vegetarian entre...our vegetarian guest left somewhat unfulfilled. Server had ideal balance of providing attention without hovering. He might have informed us there was no schnitzel from the 'get go' rather than have 2 disappointed German guests at time to place order. Wine list is good. Poor selection of beer, especially for German flair. Tart of the day and Key Lime pie were authentic and delicious. Noisy inside. Outdoor dining our choice but need fans and planting barriers on patio to separate from parked cars. Make it prettier! Enjoyed having Michael meet us at the end of our evening."

  • "We were traveling through Montgomery Memorial Day weekend and wanted to have a nice dinner. Michael's Table fit the bill nicely. We loved the ambience of the place and the menu. My husband got the schnitzel and I got the shrimp black bean cake. Both were delicious. We followed them with the coconut cream pie and orange cinnamon gelato. Perfect way to end the meal. We will definitely try to get back there when we go through town again."

  • "We live in Birmingham and took a couple who had never been to Michael's. They loved the menu - wanted to order on of everything - and weren't disappointed with their choices. We had an early dinner before going to the Shakespeare Festival for a play. Appetizers, entrees, wines and deserts were all delicious. We'll be back."

  • "My family and I went to Michael's Table on May 3, 2014 and were blown away by the great greeting, service and food. The food was so great, there was nothing left on any of our plates. The filet was melt in your mouth delicious and the corn tamales were so delicious, it was a shame when we realized there was nothing left in the husk. The schnitzel was cooked to perfection. The chocolate soufflé was so fantastic, it needs to be one of the seven deadly sins. The gelato was also to die for. This was one of the best meals my family has had in a very long time. If you haven't been to Michael's Table, you have missed out on a truly wonderful dining experience. "

  • "We celebrated a birthday in the family at Michael's Table on April 26. Chef Michael and the hostess both greeted us warmly and we were seated quickly. After debating the enticing choices, we ordered wine, appetizers (empanadas and a spinach salad) and entrees (lamb and schnitzel). My husband said the lamb was, "to die for". My schnitzel was cooked perfectly. Both plate presentations were beautiful. In spite of the generous portions we'd just finished, desert proved tempting. I enjoyed coconut cream pie with a cornflake crust, which was a nice contrast of textures. My husband ordered the key lime pie, which had a chocolate crust Our entire meal was outstanding. The ambience at Michael's Table is relaxed and casual, most enjoyable."

  • "Michael's Table is the best choice for dinner in the Montgomery area. The menu is a surprise on every visit and the choices are unique and developed with care The owner visits the patrons with a genuine desire to discuss the food and the servers are a joy."

  • "Everything was very good. The only complaint was that there was a family there with two kids and they were pretty loud. The place tried to keep them separate fom the other diners and I believe it was nôt a normal thing. This is a very minor complaint considering the quality of everything else. One really positive note is that they used only very full and fresh ingredients."

  • "It has a fresh ingredients. Real foodies will enjoy the small and fresh menu. A small but decent wine and beer menu. The atmosphere is nice. Worth your while for special occasion or just an enjoyable food experience."

  • "I came in alone when I was traveling in Montgomery for business. The service was great, the restaurant is awesome, very quiet and welcoming. However, I honestly expected the food to be better. I had the snapper piccata... The fish was cooked well; however, it was fried in a batter of some sort (as piccata is) but it was not crispy at all. The batter was just soggy covering the fish. The pasta was also cooked perfectly, but had very little sauce and lacked flavor. To finish, I had the coconut cream pie. It was good, but the balsamic drizzle was a little off putting."

  • "It was an enjoyable experience. The Jäger Schnitzel was delicious. Time is always a factor with me & I must say that the food was in front of me faster than I expected. The atmosphere was quiet & intimate. I personally would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is trying to rekindle a relationship, having an anniversary, or trying to impress their significant other with something out of the norm."

  • "I love the romantic atmosphere and eclectic clientele. There were guys in tuxes and tails as well as shirts and sweater vests, all we're welcome and managed to fit into the ambiance. My wife and I only managed a few dishes, but each were amazing. We started with the prosciutto wrapped pears, then we had the table steak and jäger schnitzel. Each dish was succulent and masterfully served. Our desserts were the vinegar custard pie and the chocolate soufflé, perfect endings to the meal. The staff never rushed us and we felt incredibly welcome by each staff member we encountered, especially Michael himself. Prices were reasonable, especially for the quality. I highly recommend Michael's Table for a fantastic dinner out in Montgomery!"

  • "My wife and I took two guests for lunch. The usual friendly greeting from Gayla. We were glad to see our favorite server, Michael (Spain), who asked about our recent travels (he remembered). The Potlicker Soup was on the menu! The last time we took a quart home. Friend and I had the Thai Quesadilla...good but not one of their best...needs more spice. Wife had the Croque Madame; friend had the tart of the day. They both loved them. The Basil EVOO gelato for dessert was stupendous! We love the funky ambience of Michael's Table."

  • "It was nice and quiet at Michael's Table, we enjoyed the food and the ambiance. For the first 15 minutes or so the door was open and it was a little drafty at our table, but they soon shut the door (we didn't even have to ask). I ordered a glass of Reisling and I appreciated being able to try a taste before pouring me a full glass. I found it too sweet so the waiter went to find a drier wine. Portions were good, dessert was good. Overall I would recommend it!"
