  • "Everything was great! Looking forward to going back."

  • "We had a great lobster dinner, fine wine and wonderful music."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Michelle's was a perfect mixture of good food, atmosphere, entertainment and still quiet enough to hold a dinner conversation. I'm hooked! The Happy Hour deals are what would bring me back due to quality and price and the two for one was my speed as well. Due to the menu prices on any other normal day, I'd have to go elsewhere but I know where I'll be on their "specials" night. Go and check out this restaurant..... You'll be glad u did and you'll feel like a sophisticated grown up :)"

  • "Monday was BNO which had a 2 for 1 menu. $7 martinis. A good time to try this restaurant. We ordered from the 2-4-1 menu and received excellent friendly service. Nice piano music from the bar area. The decor is very pleasant and attractive. When entering we were greeted by a very friendly maitre'd. Food was good but not great."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "Live music always a plus in my book. Crab cake was not lump as advertised, too much cake. Booths are cozy but not particularly comfortable as the seat is too low for the height of the table. It was not full for prime time Saturday night which is a concern for its viability. That said, the octopus salad was fabulous. We might try it again."

  • "I was at Michele's with 3 other girlfriends and we all got the lobster special and every one of us was thoroughly impressed! They were generous with the portions, the lobster was cooked perfectly and succulent! The service was awesome! Will be dining there again and it's my favorite happy hour place to meet a friend. Love Michele's! Great job, Lou!!!!"

  • "The first wine dinner I attended was memorable. The second one was a disappointment."

  • "Food, service, ambiance was fantastic, but expensive. I like the live entertainment."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Michele's had a fixed menu for the evening. We had voices of tenderloin, duck, fish for entrees as well as choices for appetizers and desert. The food was nicely prepared and well presented. Being Valentines day, the place was busy, but under control. They also had an entertainer playing piano which was nice, although I'm not sure if they do this all the time. There was a good mix of patrons of all ages."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My significant other and myself had Valentine reservations for 6:00 pm. We were a few minutes late when we arrived. The host and hostess couldn't quite decide where to place us in the dining area, and we stated that "it does not matter where we sit" (trying to ease their stress a bit). Upon sitting, at least 4 different people tended to our table. Everyone was very pleasant, but I felt as if we were being a bit rushed due to the holiday. Minor mix up bring wrong app. The food was very good, and we did thoroughly enjoy our dinner. The duck was amazing, and the sea bass was cooked to perfection with a crispy skin, and tasty sauce. Everything was delish. We will definately be going back. This is our second experience at Michele's."

  • "Aatmoshpere of the dining room side is charmin/romantic. They offered us to sit on the bar side at first, which had a good piano player/singer, but super loud. So, we waited to be on the dining room side. Food was excellent, but service was poor. The timing of dishes was off - once course showed up before being done with the prior course. We had to ask for bread - and it was frozen in the middle. We had to ask for silverware (twice) - when they took it from one course, the didn't notice or think about the next course (and when asked it took a trip all the way back to the kitchen to find silverware)."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "V Day menu with no substitutions or off the regular menu orders (including previously noted allergies). Clearly, the staff was unprepared for the night. Understaffing with a reduced menu gave pause to our continuing the evening. My wife loves Mediterranean, which this should have been. But typical American fare, aided by a lack of it on the plate, caused additional negativity. Each of the four courses was tiny, to say the least. $60 per was $20 too much for that experience. Not worth mentioning the food since it is not on the regular menu, but the small amounts we had were wonderful. The waiter forgot to provide a steak knife or ground pepper; the two tables on either side of us enjoyed the use of both. Unacceptable to me, unforgivable."

  • "Music is a big draw. Food was very good. Portions good size but quality counts and it was there."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "can't understand why this place had only a few tables of customers, when the food is good and ambience was very nice! It was a Tuesday night, but this time of the year most restaurants are busy during the week. It was four of us, and we all enjoyed Michele's very much."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "I made the reservation without knowing about the incredible live music. I can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "The chef, Farid, is excellent. Food is super. The place is elegant and nicely decorated. The only criticism that I have is that the deserts could be a little improved. Had the chocolate brownie and it didn't taste like much. The rest of the food was superb."

  • "We took our friends to this restaurant and were very happy to share a meal with them here. The scallops were spectacular (wrapped in phyllo-dough like strips, and delicate calamari with a light but tasty batter tempted us before we started our meal. I had the beet salad and it was tasty and beautifully prepared. The crab cake was perfectly cooked and full of flavor. Ending with tiramisu, we felt satisfied. Looking forward to our next meal here!"
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "What a beautiful restaurant, very classy and quiet, although it wasn't full on a Tuesday night. Everyone at our table of 5 remarked on the food. The servings were substantial, but nobody left food on the plate! Specifically, my salmon was perfectly cooked...slightly crisp on the outside, rare and moist on the inside. The basic wine selection was fine, but for a $12 glass of Kim Crawford, I would have preferred more than 3 oz at a time."
    Dined on 1/7/2014
  • "We went with a group of 8 friends and ordered salmon, grouper and seafood pasta along with a variety of side dishes (calamari, mussels and salads). Enjoyed every dish. Fish was perfectly prepared and sauces were tasty but not heavy. Friendly staff who checked back frequently to see if there were any needs."

  • "Restaurant was quite on our visit but service was exceptional and food was excellent. Live music on some nights. Good value."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "This place is beautiful on the inside and the service was ok, there were hardly anyone there besides us. Our server was not very knowledgeable about any food or drink item offered/available and the food was ok. Each of us got a different dish and it was quite small as well as only having maybe one item on the dish that was pleasing, the rest was basically inedible. The meat was ok, the rest was not so great. Now I know why there was hardly anyone there. The wait time was very long as well."
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "We went here Saturday night just before Christmas and it was very quiet. Everything was terrific and we had a great time. We will definitely be back with friends. Just very surprised that the place wasn't packed given all that it has to offer!!"
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Just don't come on Friday nights for a quiet dinner. Live music is good... Preferred when they played Sinatra/buble ... The 70's flair was odd ... I will continue to come, cause food and staff are awesome"

  • "micheles is a beautiful restaurant. the staff is friendly and the music great. we did not care for their new menu its too gourmet. there wasn't enough of a selection. I don't eat fish. didn't want filet so it was either chicken or pork. I chose the pork but I reallyfelt like pasta and was told there was no pasta of the day which is on the menu.they made us a Caesar saald which wasn't on the menu and was the last visit.i would call first before I went again to see if they made any changes. we were also told that they no longer have a bar bite menu and a happy hour. big mistake in florida where most people look for that."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "micheles is really a supper club and much needed in the area the food was good music great but the table service was very slow especially since the restaurant wasn;t busy.. this was my second time there and I brought friends who shared my opinion.there is no reason why there should be a 20 minute wait for coffee. when they get their act together it will be a great place not just good."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Tucked away in a strip store sits a very good, beautifully decorated, great bar and very friendly personnel, a piano player playing great music, happy hour prices on drinks and food, We tried the seared tuna and crab cakes..yummy! ..can it get any better? Yes, if you go into the dinning room after happy hour and sit at their elevated booths and enjoy their dinner specials! We were there on Thursday and they have a lobster special...two tails, cooked perfectly with rice and melted butter for $19 . We added a side of their garlic spinach,yum! Looking forward to visiting weekly :-)"

  • "A first visit for three of us - we went for drinks in the bar at Michele's, followed by dinner. excellent service from the team in the bar - we hadn't even realised they have drinks on special offer during happy Hour, but you can also eat food at the bar with discounted prices at this time. A piano player was very good, though not intrusive - playing well remembered songs from the past. dinner was great too - more excellent service, and well presented and floavorsome food. special dinner offers available nightly - especially early in the week. I urge you to try it if you haven't been"

  • "My girlfriend took me to dinner at Michele's for my birthday, it was one of the best dinners I ever had. We frequently dine at fine restaurants, Michele's compares with them all. Great place for special occasions."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "Michele's always come through with delicious, well-prepared food and attentive service. It's not a place for the kids...only the young at heart. The restaurant is not totally divided from the bar and the glass wall is almost like a big screen TV. Typically a mature crowd laughing and enjoying the live entertainment. I am not a "regular" but do try to go frequently....never disappointed!"
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "Mediterranean style preparations. The rack of lamb was ample and delicious, served with a rosemary-inflected demi-glace. Exceptionally prepared Maine lobster with crab meat. Cooked perfectly, and top-quality ingredients. Amazing chocolate browney for dessert: dark Giardelli chocolate and real nice crustiness. Very good PEI mussels in classic, savory, but not spicy (my preference), white wine broth. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "A more upscale restaurant with a nice piano bar. The piano player had a excellent reportorial including an amazing voice range. On this Friday night I was there with friends vacationing from NJ. The bar side was packed with people from a wide age group, starting with early crowd around 7 PM being mostly 50 + to the 8 PM crowd being 30 t o 40 Something. The quality food was served with a very nice presentation. And there was never a need to call for the waiter because he was top of everything. All in all I would highly recommend Michele's for that special night out or just to have a great time."

  • "The evening was delightful. The twin lobster tails special was just perfect. We enjoyed the lovely music in the piano bar as well, both before dinner with appitizers, and after dinner coctails. The service was very attentive, pleasant and showing dedication. It was an all around wonderful dining experience. Will share this with many friends."
