Excellent dining experience
Excellent dining experience from the moment we were greeted at the door. Staff was well informed on the food and wine menu as well as friendly and courteous. The carrot salad was an amazing blend of flavors. Duck entree and crab cake were equally great. Cannot wait to return to Vero Beach to dine again.

Limited menu but everything
Limited menu but everything very well done, original, good presentation, visually appealing atmosphere. At present only wine and beer. They were accommodating to my guest who couldn't eat shellfish but liked the sauces on the Surf and Turf and essentially doubled the portion of beef. Not oversized portions but not skimpy either. Everyone's meal was at the requested temperature and the sauces were unusual. Well done.

We were disappointed at first that the prior restaurant in this space was no longer there, but our disappointment quickly changed as soon as the appetizers arrived. The food was splendid. Very flavorful and fresh. I had the scallops. My husband had fish. Both were delicious. Our server was efficient and knowledgeable. The space is cozy but comfortable. We will definitely come back next time we are in Vero.

Local cuisine elegantly prepared
Excellent dinner choices. Certainly a cut above the typical Vero Beach fare. I had a New York strip cut into medallions and served simply but elegantly. My wife had a fantastic crab cake with all coarse crab meat. A beautiful scallop dish and fresh freens for a salad were perfect starters. It's a small restaurant but nicely laid out. Bread is fresh and all wines are available by the glass - a nice touch. There were a lot of Chardonnays as is typical of Vero, but many other novel wines also. Our server was polite but not over-present. Deserts were good. Book early to have a quieter meal, but even full it was tolerable. Chef/owner stayed on the customer side but always near the kitchen and did not interact with guests. We recommend highly.

Restaurant for Foodies
The food at this restaurant is amazing. I had the best crab cake of my life here... The only criticism (which was the problem with the previous restaurant at this location) is that it is really loud inside. I would recommend you ask for a table near the front of the restaurant if you like it a little quieter. But the food makes it worth it. I highly recommend this restaurant

We had a very nice meal at
We had a very nice meal at Michael's Table. We had a veal heart appetizer - not usually something we would order but it was strongly recommended by the server. We were not disappointed. I had the Duck, Duck, Goose entree - I am a big fan of duck and this was prepared to perfection. My husband had the swordfish which he was not impressed with, due to the fact that there was a prominent bloodline in the fish. We indulged in dessert - the cheese course (tasty) and a very yummy chocolate-pretzel dessert which I will dream about for weeks! Cons: the location. It is situated amongst some other businesses in a sort of "strip mall" (nicer than it sounds) and it was a bit cramped inside. Hopefully they can move house after establishing themselves.

very good food and service
very good food and service only bad thing water glass smelled nasty !!!

The food and service were
The food and service were excellent. The only negative is the noise level. The room is on the small side and the bar is very lively so the noise level is on the high side. However, my husband and I would definitely return and recommend it to friends.

Needs some help
Michaels Table doesn't serve cocktails and we were surprised as they didn't tell us. I was with guests who do not drink wine. We went at 6:45 and it got noisier as the evening progressed. I asked to sit by the door and it was much quieter.
They called to let us know there was covered parking as it was pouring rain. Very friendly and good service.

GREAT RESTAURANT. NOISE SUPPRESSION
GREAT RESTAURANT. NOISE SUPPRESSION IN REST. HAS MADE A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE. WE WILL RETURN.

Great food, very interesting menu. Would recommend the gnocchi appetizer. I got the special (mahi & scallops), which was prepared impeccably. As is so often the case with fine dining, the skill of the chef is apparent in the sauces, which were light but intensely flavorful. Wine and beer only, and a cozy establishment. The ambience is chic bistro. I would definitely go again - these are people who take their craft seriously. But maybe not too often - you do get what you pay for, but it's not inexpensive. I would definitely call it a good value, though. :)

Great Meal right in Vero Beach
Excellent meal with attentive but unobtrusive
service. Make a reservation for a table or take your
chances and sit at the bar. Either way go!

Excellent Food and Service
Enjoyed this restaurant very much. Food and service is excellent. It's a pleasure to dine in a place that puts so much thought into the menu. I would return again when we are back in town!

Best crab cake
I'm from Maryland so that's saying a lot! That was one of the best crab cakes ever. The pig plate was awesome. The chocolate pretzel dessert was a real surprise. I loved the crunchy pretzel base with creamy chocolate and caramel ice cream. I will be dreaming about this meal for a long time. They change the menu every 3 weeks so I can't wait to go back for a new experience.

Loved this place while we were visiting Vero Beach. Lobster martinit so great as well as the beet salad. I had the grouper special delish and husband had the crab cakes. Make sure yu go here so nice and delish food!

Foodie fun at the beach . . .
Small, but cozy dining room, large bar area for dining as well. Farm to table consciousness, creative menu and artfully presented. Quality was very high, prices not too high. Gnudi appetizer was fun, full of fresh vegetables and not something you would find elsewhere. Buffalo mozz/heirloom tomatoes served w/ a properly grilled bread - outstanding. Entrees were also very good - Grouper was fine, but the accompanying corn risotto the real standout. Duck breast with confit "croutons" cooked perfectly with pickled cherries adding some needed zest. Older crowd reflecting the polished palette, but food well worth it. Across the street from the beachfront, so not much view, but go for the food. You can always go to the beachfront later

This was our second time dinning at Michales Table and it did not disappoint. The food is amazing, and some of the best in vero that is for sure. The menu changes every few months but the food remains consistant and impeccable. Great price for the quality of food you get. The Pork cheeks are amazing along with the fresh fish entree they change Dailey. Michales table also just introduced a new summer bar menu. Always a pleasure to dine at Michales table. Great food, great service, and a reasturant I would definetly recommend trying. You won't be dissopointed.

Great Food at Michael's
We had a great meal (Triple tail) with a perfectly cooked side of haricot verts ( green beans). It was a wonderful meal that is the best I have had in a while. Lively atmosphere and fun spot. Great service too.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Michael's Table is a place to go if you seek a creative menu that uses high quality local ingredients cooked to perfection and with great service and presentation - prices are very reasonable, particularly in consideration of the beach side location. A selection of quality draft craft ales is also on offer.

This is our third time to
This is our third time to Vero Beach in 3 years, and Michael's Table is always on our dining agenda. This is a first-class restaurant with great food! The hostess was superb. When she saw that we made a 6:30 PM reservation, she called to be sure we knew about their Summer Special that requires that the order be placed by then; so, we went a little earlier. Glad we did because price is substantially reduced with the "3-2-1" special (3 courses for 2 people at 1 price).
My only constructive comment about the food is to suggest that they feature more local fish dishes (although the menu does change regularly). Otherwise, the food as prepared was excellent.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very well done. All food was
Very well done. All food was prepared when ordered, which mean it took a little longer than most restaurants, but I like that. Everything seemed fresh, and a lot of care went into every meal. We have a young daughter with good allergies, and we used the online reservation system and mentioned her allergies during that process. The first thing the server mentioned after saying hello was my daughters allergies. Nice to have a server and kitchen take the allergies seriously. Keep up the good work.

Add The Lamb
We both had the rack of lamb that was added to the 3-2-1 special that night and it was OUTSTANDING!!! The waiter was very attentive and we enjoyed the entire meal and the wine. If Chef Michael can add the lamb to the summer choices that would be super!!

Great meal and the summer
Great meal and the summer 3-2-1 special is perfect.

Saturday night done right!
Around 10:30 Saturday morning, we decided to go to Michael's Table for dinner. After calling the restaurant and receiving no answer, I went online with my cell phone and much to my surprise, I was able to easily make a reservation, and receive an email confirming it.
It is a small and intimate place, with limited tables. The Menu is creative and Wine List has something to compliment every Menu item and every taste.
We wanted to dine. We wanted to leisurely talk over dinner and enjoy our night. Our server was very attentive but, we didn't feel pressure to hurry to do anything so they could "turn over" a table.
The food was fabulous. The wait staff very friendly and attentive.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our first time to the restaurant was for brunch and we really enjoyed it. My Husband had to order 3 meals off the menu so that he could try a few things and although they were all very great, it would be nice if you could have ordered them in a smaller plate. Maybe 1 piece of banana bread or a slice of french toast so that you can add it to your meal. But overall, the wait staff and meal was awesome.

Worth the 1hr drive from Melbourne!
My husband and I drove up from Melbourne to visit Vero and heard about Michael's Table from a local. We were thrilled with the recommendation! Our dinner was fantastic. I had the grilled grouper and my husband had the game bird trio special. Both were so delicious! I think my favorite was my pickled blackberry salad. Wow. We also loved that the kitchen sent a small sample of another dish they were making. The wine I had for dinner was also a great choice made by our server. I wonder if the restaurant is hoping to one day have a full liquor bar? I bet the cocktails would be out of this world, too. Our experience was so great, we decided it was worth the 1 hour drive to come back just for a meal at Michael's Table.

Michael's Table excels again
Excellent food, excellently prepared, excellently served...No more need be said. The $25.00 summer special was 3 courses of soup/salad, marvelous snapper (or something else) with a delish pannacotta dessert. I was filled enuf I didn't need to eat more, not that I would not have wanted to! Our server Adrianna was delightful and accomplished. Went back as usual for a delicious Sunday brunch or eggs oscar with a glorious hollandaise sauce atop the poached egg over crabcake. Everything always superb quality ingredients and a lovely touch of elegance.
Bravo MIchael's Table.

Meals at Michael's Table never disappoint me. Brunch, lunch, dinner - all fantastic. Most recently dined with a group of girlfriends; we were all impressed with our delicious soups, salads, entrees and desserts.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chef Michael knows his craft. One of a handful of chefs in Vero whose culinary skills are worth the visit. From appetizers to desserts, he can do it all, deliciously! Don't miss this gem in Vero!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this restaurant. One of the best in Vero. The only problem is that it is too noisy when it the room gets busy. Too bad this problem can't be fixed, because that is the only thing that make this not a absolutely PERFECT dining experience.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fresh done right!
First time trying Michaels Table. One word sums it up-excellent.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome crab cake
I tried the crab cake to see if it was as good as the last time we were here. It was! (I'm from Maryland so I know good crab cakes!)
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of the best dining experiences we've had in years. Perfect food presented perfectly. Freshest local ingredients handled with masterful care. Very impressive. Reservations a must.
