A word from Michy's
Michy's is the golden child restaurant created by husband and wife team David Martinez and Michelle Bernstein. This modern bistro located in the up and coming neighborhood of Miami’s “Upper East Side”, awakens the 69th block on gritty Biscayne Boulevard with its glowing lights and bustling energy. Chef Bernstein and her team utilize seasonal ingredients and draw upon local farmers and fisherman to create whimsical bistro dishes, a style she coins as “luxurious comfort food.” The menu is comprised of an eclectic range that includes Michelle’s Jewish-Argentinean background, classical French training and a love for all things Spain with a sprinkling of homey Italian. From Crispy Fried Poussin, to Ceviche, to Braised Short Ribs, there is literally a little something for everyone. The goal is to enjoy yourself, to enjoy every bite and to take your palate on a ride!

    To find a last minute table at Michy's is almost impossible and the reason is simple - the food is consistently great. What I love even more about it is that they now have a full bar and mixologist ready to cook up some great cocktails.

    Dined on 11/22/2013
    I have to admit, I simply like Michelle Bernstein. I've met her a couple of times and I think the restaurant is an extension of her personality - warm and friendly but exacting with how things are run and the quality of the food. The food is consistently excellent. The waitstaff are personable and very accommodating and try to make your experience the best it can be. The restaurant is a little hard to find but well worth the effort. Parking is in the rear and limited unless you valet park. They have a full bar, an excellent wine list, and the menu changes to reflect what's fresh. It's not inexpensive but you feel you are getting your money's worth. This is one of the more pleasurable dining experiences in South Florida.

I am desapointed because they are missing some dishes, the service was far from good and I specified a nice table to have a good experience but they gave me a only a resonable table even the restaurant was empty....sorry about it !!

    Wonderful dinning experience. Nice to have valet parking. The host was very gracious and once seated, we enjoyed excellent food with very attentive service. Great start with the ham croquettes which were crispy on the outside and creamy inside. The salmon was perfectly cooked and for the hearty eater, you must have the steak & frites. Great wine list and a bread puddin to die for! Highly recommend Michy's.

    The food was really really good,I had the steak frites and my steak were cooked perfectly . The desserts were to die for. I ordered the pistachio cake and it was so delicious , my husband ordered the bread pudding and he loved it. We couldn't finished the desserts because the portions were too big. Definitely we are going to repeat the experience.

    DavidB
    Dined on 10/26/2013
    While the food is above average, the restaurant was crowded and very noisy. The servers were very busy as well, but this could be a result of dining during prime weekend hours. We did have to wait awhile to order, but the service picked up after that point. The staff reflects a high level of guest service awareness and are very friendly. The servers have obviously been trained well, as their placement of food and utensils was properly carried out on a consistent basis. The drawback with the restaurant is that the tables are very close together which makes it uncomfortable to have a conversation with the other guests at your table, along with a very high noise level.

    We went all meat for our first visit and were not disappointed. The short ribs (their specialty) were divine and the steak frites was probably the best skirt steak I've ever had. Appetizers and main portions are moderately sized, the desserts were large.

    We are fans of Michele Bernstein and chose Michy's for our anniversary dinner. We ate appetizers as small plates dinner as we thought them to be more interesting. There seemed to be a lot of pasta on the main course selections. Though everything was fairly well executed we were not bowled over by the experience. At those prices it should be amazing. We understand both the venue and the menu will be redone and not a moment too soon.

    Our overall experience at Michy's was fantastic. I like the way that those taking the reservations take and add notes to the reservation itself. This way the servers can be more attentive to the needs of the table. This makes birthdays and anniversaries much nicer. It also doesn't hurt to have a secret weapon like Kelly! She was fantastic.

    I was extremely disappointment with the the food. This is my third and last time at Michy's. We had the Spice Menu which offered the skirt steak. We ordered the steak to be medium cooked instead we got steaks that were so well cooked that they were hard as leather. The took them back , but they were still well cooked and hard as leather. We also, ordered the sweet bread which were greasy and had no taste. The one thing that we really good was the wine, other than that the experience was poor. Now I see why Sra Martinez closed its door.

  • Michy's Extremly Disappointing Menu
    Wisdom
    Dined on 9/12/2013
    Extremely Disappointing Evening of Food. After looking at the menu, we noticed it lacked depth without any dishes with spice or lots of flavor. Not one of the specialty items that have been written up about such as Korean spiced Sweet breads or Yellow tail snapper in Malaysian curry was featured that evening. The sous chefs inability to execute a menu with depth reflected in her boring menu of the night. Even the wine list did not offer any exciting Grand Cru Burgundy's or first growth Bordeaux's or any California Cult Wines. This was not the Michelle Bernstein food that we were used to from the days at Azul at The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Miami where she personally cooked or at The Omphoy where the food was superb under Sous chef Lindsay.

    Most of the items in the menu were not available. From the get go, the waiter told us that several items in the menu were not available. Then after we place our orders, he came back to tell one person in our group that his appetizer was not available, then he came back to inform us that another appetizer that we order just ran out! Then, after about half hour, the manager came to our table to inform us that my entree was not available! Later the waiter told us that the manager was buying us a round of drinks for the inconvenience, this was a nice gesture. The food was good but the portions were extremely small, we had opt for the "Miami Spice" menu and expected smaller size meals but these where ridiculously small, about appetizer size. WTF

    My friend and I decided on Michy's for our joint brithday brunch after reading several excellent reviews. I ordered the chicken & waffles and my friend had Fettuccine carbonara. Both were fantastic! So good in fact, that I ordered the Fettuccine carbonara for pick-up later on that same night for dinner!! I was a little shocked that the portion was the same as brunch BUT the price was 10$ more? $33.00 is pricey for a small pasta dish. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it all the same. At brunch, we both ordered bloody marys and shown the "make your own" bar. The option to have it made by bartender would have been nice because I am not a mixologist.
