Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I are regulars at Michael's Genuine. This misses the mark on every level. We were seated in the lobby, which was very warm and uninviting. The service was ok, not like MGFD! The food was ok, nothing special. We had the octopus, kale salad and skirt steak, all very "just ok"! There are much better options in the area."

  • "Ambiance and service was great. Food, not so much. My lump crab cake lacked seasoning except for the salt which was overly poured in the crab cake. Had a drink that included bell pepper in it, that I couldn't finish. I couldn't tolerate the taste. My husbands lamb dish was tough to chew. It's to bad, the service and setting were great(minus the mosquito problem). The food needs HELP! The food was NOT worth what I paid."

  • "We visited several of Michael Swartz restaurants in Miami and found a common theme. Excellent food, great drinks, and great service. The crab cakes, deviled eggs, and flat bread made for a great tapas style night before heading out on the town."

  • "The staff was super nice, friendly, - food was excellent. A little dark (lighting) when you sit at certain tables."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Memorable brunch in a relaxing surrounding. Try the bread basket (croissant is a must)and eggs Benedict with wild salmon. Pair it with a steamy almond capuccino. You feel on vacation when Sitting in the shade of an old thick tree while the sun is teasing its leaves on a quiet Sunday morning. Avoid those Miami crowds, enjoy the moment. It's worth every minute."

  • "Aside from the excellent ceviche, tuna & fish special entrees, our server was wonderful: made us feel like we were the most special group in the place."

  • "I had high hopes since I loved Michaels Genuine.. But this place was dead on a Thursday night, the service was so-so, the steak tartare and oysters and cobia were so-so... The highlight was the blackberry basil cocktail, delicious. Otherwise, meh."

  • "Dining outside, overlooking the iconic pool area of the Raleigh Hotel, was exactly what I'd want in a Miami Beach dining experience. The food on my second visit was prepared to my requests, beautifully served, and the atmosphere was a wonderful balance of energy and relaxation. So long a the evening temperature and humidity are reasonable - it makes for a great experience. Dining inside, while air conditioned, in good weather is usually "empty". Menu seems to change seasonally, but the quality of everything was excellent. BTW< there is a fun LITTLE hideaway Martini Bar of the lobby - circa 1940's style. Highly recommend. "

  • "At first glance the menu appears to have your standards (grilled cheese,etc.). Upon further inspection you notice the different ingredients and elements used to prepare the dishes (jasper hills landaff cheese, parmigiano crust-makes for a non standard grilled cheese). Pricy but not out if the ordinary in Miami. "

  • "I am a frequent client of many restaurants in Miami, and probably eat out 6 out of 7 days a week (lunch and dinner). I am an optimistic person and typically try to find charm even in the most simplest of places, I don't get easily surprised by glitz and glam, but truly try to find something special about every place. Today I had lunch at the Raleigh Michael Schwartz Restaurant and I all I can say its that there is absolutely nothing to rescue from the restaurant, it is hands down the worst place in Miami"

  • "Great place to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful Miami weather. In a nice little boutique hotel on the beach. Valet is $15 with validation. Excellent food and vibe, highly recommended."

  • "The Raleigh is an amazing space however the food was way, super overly salted. The beef was a bit of a salt lick. Prepared well but way over salted. "

  • "We had an excellent brunch experience for Mother's Day. Our party of four including two kids arrived and were seated promptly by a very friendly hostess at 11am under a tree near the pool. Service was mostly attentive (though the wait for my second Bloody Mary was long) and food arrived promptly. Kids enjoyed the waffles and tasty donuts and parents enjoyed some fresh oysters, the crab hash and Croque Monsieur. All dishes were excellent. We were pleasantly surprised to see Chef Schwartz dining with is family at the table next door. A very successful Mother's Day brunch!"

  • "I rarely write reviews, but our experience at MS "deserves" one. Our evening started with the host announcing that because of the rain earlier that day the outside area was closed. We were supposed to have been informed by phone - we were not. The bar tender ignored my request to make any champagne based cocktail other than Kir Roayal. Kir Roayl I got, because, aparently, he had nothing else. Service at dinner was sloppy and incompetent. A 75 dollar Pinot (10.99 retail!) was so substandard (+ served cold) that we had to ask for it to be taken off the check. Pizza was burnt and my octopus was swimming in a sea of thin liquid. We could not wait to get out and go to Cicconi's to make up for this disaster with some good drinks and desserts."

  • "we had a server with the personality of a wooden plank he was not attentive. he didn't ask how our meals were. he was slow. he was indifferent. I even spoke with the restaurant manager and they were equally indifferent. the best thing about this place was the 100 year old cedar grape tree with lit lanterns hanging from the branches. go to yardbird. go to prime 112. "

  • "Really appreciated a beautiful poolside table were we good talk with each other without having to shout. The small bites were a little pricey for what you got. Crab cake was good, duck was ok, just not great."

  • "Went to this places for the first time and I enjoy everything. Services was great and my friend from NYC and expert in restaurants, likes a lot this gem. Outdoor dinning is key. Michael Schwarts, had a Great location in SOBE, Miami and easy access. "
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Too steep, too salty, too slow. Valet (when you can find him) is exorbitant for diners. Too much reliance on salt to enhance flavor. Service drags both between courses and at end of meal. They could do better."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "We recently had dinner there, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Our food was very good, the service was excellent, and the ambiance/setting was charming and classy while remaining warm and inviting. I would definitely recommend. Our waiter did a good job explaining menu items and seemed genuinely enthusiastic about the food. We had one part of one entree which was slightly over cooked, which is why I held off on giving 4 stars, but overall, the food was excellent. Fun place!!"

  • "I'm used to Michael's in the design district. This was a far cry from the original. The food was fine, but the service was horrible. They couldn't get anything right. It was way too dark as well. This could be a cute, romantic place...COULD! But it isn't. I will continue to go to the design district."

  • "We had planned to eat in the "dining room" but with a 3 piece band playing quite loudly it would have been impossible to have a conversation so we opted to dine on the outdoor terrace. The ambiance outdoors on the terrace was quite lovely. One of us had Hendricks gin on the rocks at $17.00 and the other had Ketel One vodka on the rocks for $16.00. These are outrageous prices for very skimpy drinks! The wine list was also very pricey and limited. Our whole snapper for two persons was overcooked. The brussels sprouts were brunt to a crisp. And at these prices they could at least have put a place mat on the outdoor wooden table. Michael Schwartz can certainly do better than this!!"

  • "Restaurant Michael Schwartz was THE perfect spot for our group of seven girls. It is an AMAZING value. Upon arrival, we were not satisfied with our table location but the hostesses were very accommodating. The atmosphere is romantic but still the glamorous South Beach I love. Prices are extremely moderate, which was perfect for our crowd of mid-20s working girls. Our food was delicious, perfectly prepared and satisfied each individual. Cocktails are fabulous. Food highlights: roasted peppers, crab cakes, octopus, shrimp toast, and rabbit. Rarely does a restaurant deliver a meal to a large group without a glitch."

The ceviche was bright and flavorful, and my grilled octopus was incredibly tender and so very delicious! And save room for dessert!!! The lemon meringue bread pudding was outstanding! If you are a chocolate fan, go for the salted chocolate caramel mousse! Service was fantastic!"

  • "From the moment we walked through the door, Wes the mgr took great care of us while we waited at the bar for maybe three minutes. From there our server Lee took care of us for the rest of evening. A wonderful meal, a magical evening, and level of service was above and beyond. Well done Michael Schwartz! Bravo. I can't wait to return!"

  • "Fine food and a lovely location in the back courtyard of the beautiful Raleigh Hotel, one of South Beach's many Art Deco treasures. The menu choices are inspired, adventurous, and nicely done. Great place for a romantic meal, although I was put off somewhat by allowing smoking even if it's outdoors. Just what a gourmet meal doesn't need--eau de cigarettes. C'mon, Miami Beach, this isn't Europe, so don't let smokers inflict their bad habits on the rest of us. Highly recommended, nevertheless."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "Great food- Michael Schwartz rarely disappoints. Imaginative small plates, excellent entree's. Bad- typical young, inexperienced, poor service that has become a staple on South Beach--- even more annoying with the 18% autogratuity. The stinky- great outdoor setting- it's truly magical. But with outdoors comes smoking, and when a table 2 away lit up a cigar, our meal was over."

  • "The setting on the pool deck on a beautiful Night was lovely. The panzanella salad and Ceviche were huge hits while the heirloom tomato salad and the kale Caesar were tasty. Michaels signature roast chicken which we were told takes 30 minutes came out much faster and was excellent. The skirt steak was a bit tough but very tasty. Don't miss the lemon meringue dessert ! The service was very relaxed and efficient, I would definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "How can you go wrong with Michael Schwartz. No longer need to go to the design district restaurant as this location not only has the excellent food but the service was beyond expectations! Anna made my wife's birthday lunch so special. We will return as this place is not to be missed. It's located in the beautiful Raleigh Hotel so a winner all around. Thank you!"

  • "Amazing! My first time to this restaurant proved worth while. I had to try it because I like his other restaurants, and I am so glad I did. They did a very nice job creating an intimate atmosphere outside. There aren't a lot of tables, so the service is great; they are nice, and do not rush you, or pressure you to order too much food as in other places. I went with my mom, and we got two small plates, a large plate with a side, and a dessert, and that was plenty. You must try it! Great food, great ambiance. Very East Hampton meats South Beach: modern small plates with a very nice vibe."
