Went for my wife’s birthday which was not recognized despite writing it in the reservation. Placed next to the waiters order entry booth so I had someone constantly hitting my chair and hovering over us.

We ordered the chefs menu and it was hit and miss. Mostly a miss. When we were asked how it was and we told them it was met with “well hopefully you will like the next one” vs addressing the issue with the current dish when it was a miss.

Overall a disappointment.

There is a reason that my wife and I go to Andrew Michael for our anniversary every year. We have never found any place that has the same outstanding service and exceptional food every single time we have been there. We will continue to go there on our anniversary as long as we live in Memphis (and maybe even if we don't!)

Great food. Haven’t been to A&M in a few years. We did feel like the food experience was a bit less creative than previous trips. But delicious.

Bar had great service, moved to a cute two high top next to the bar. The lamb was to die for and the banana bread pudding was a must! 10/10 would recommend to anyone on a date or simple dinner. Had a great night! Will be back soon :)

Overall the food was good and service was great. My only complaint was I let the restaurant know this was our anniversary dinner and we ended up being seated at a small, two chair table wedged up against a door by the waiter’s computer station when there were plenty of larger tables available. I just figured for a special occasion you would get better seating but we still enjoyed the meal.

This is my favorite spot. They never disappoint, so we always suggest this restaurant when meeting friends. Every single couple has been converted. I love the A/M breakfast, but everything is delicious!

Server was very cordial and attentive. The entire staff there always seems to make you feel welcomed. Food was outstanding and nice size proportions.
AM breakfast and MaMaws Ravioli are always exceptional. Really enjoyed the smoked flavor of bean medley served with the Redfish as my final entree. Looking forward to coming back again.

Very disappointed. People at work encouraged me to go to dinner at this restaurant. We had the tasting menu and I couldn’t have been more underwhelmed. The first course was swordfish and it was incredibly fishy, to the point that I couldn’t eat it. The second course was duck. It was way over spiced. I think it was cooked well but there were so many conflicting flavors on the outside of the meat it overpowered the duck. The third course was lamb. It was basically a stew. Lamb can be prepared in so many wonderful ways, I’m surprised they chose such an unimaginative way to prepare it. The main course was beef which was actually pretty good. The dessert course was strawberries. Just a plain strawberry shortcake. Nothing special. Overall, i didn’t see anything the least bit Italian or appetizing. I won’t waste my time going back.

We've eaten at Andrew Michael's on many occasions, but this was the first time we had poor service. Our table of 4 ordered the 5 course meal and the server thought only three of us ordered that, so one person had to wait to get food. When asked about the tasting menu, her description was, "it's good." She didn't explain what our first course was and didn't mention the wines at all, so we had to ask the folks bringing the food for descriptions of the food and wines. She may have been new, but it wasn't a positive experience and certainly much different than any other time we've eaten at AM.

Food choices are interesting and not the same old choices. Food is fresh and beautifully presented. Tried new tastes and glad to find new favorite! Not usual wine selection.
Staff very attentive. Clearly explain the choices and willing to offer suggestions with rationale for what the dish has to offer.
Only down side is can be a bit noisy, though balanced by sense of intimacy w the small rooms.

I had heard so many good things about this restaurant. I was very disappointed. The food just wasn’t very good. The service was great though. For the amount of money we spent, I expected the food to be much better.

Yes, I have recommended A/M to many people. Always perfect service. Amanda was a wonderful waitress. The food is always innovative but, the flavors are familiar. Observation: No one table had salt & pepper shakers.... They don't need them.

We celebrated our anniversary at Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen. Our favorite Memphis restaurant has been Catherine and Mary's (also an Andrew Michael Restaurant). The food was just as amazing as C&M's, but it was much quieter, which made it a great spot to celebrate our anniversary. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful, including with making wine recommendations. We will definitely be back.

I found the atmosphere and the staff down to the valet impeccable! The scallops and the soup was fantastic. However, the rest of our choices were mediocre. Both pasta dishes, both with ground duck, and the lamb were passable with the octopus being pretty good. I had a garden salad which had too much dressing and too tangy for my tastes. The two desserts we shared (the top two according to the waitress) were really good-- a chocolate type pudding cake with chocolate sauce in the center and bread pudding. I hope to go back before I leave Memphis and give them another chance.

Stunning food. Beautiful atmosphere--warm, inviting, quiet, comfortable, candle-lit (with REAL candles), understated perfection. Impeccable service--our waitress, Amanda, was friendly and open with informed, genuine recommendations and the rest of the staff made you feel like family as well. I cannot recommend this place highly enough, they made our 15th wedding anniversary a lovely memory.

Birthday dinner and everything was outstanding, as per usual. The octopus remains a favorite. The happy hour specials are delightful and the sticky toffee pudding is to die for!

Carbonara was loved by my 8 year old and portions were perfect.

We had an incredible experience! The food was amazing. The service was amazing. The drinks were amazing. It felt like everyone went above and beyond just for us to have a great night. Our server Mickey was very helpful in explaining the menu and giving us recommendations. We both decided to do the Chefs tasting for our dinner. With that, I knew I wanted to do the wine pairing which I was very excited for. My boyfriend does not care for wine but loves whiskey. When we told Mickey that he went to the bar and his manager Evan with the information and Evan immediately offered to do a whiskey pairing with the dinner. My boyfriend agreed and loved it. Evan and the bartender Will did a great job of pairing each course with a unique whiskey for him. They also did the same for my wines. Evan was very knowledgeable and up to the challenge. We were so impressed and thankful. It really made our night that much more amazing!! Thank you so much!!

Food was delightful; the place unfortunately smelled like sewage.

For a fancy date night, my wife and I were excited to get spoiled. When the smell hit us right as we arrived, it was hard to focus on anything else. I even mentioned it to my wife when we sat down and she agreed. My poker face wasn't very good and when the manager asked our feedback on the way out, I shared about the smell. He was surprised by the smell and brushed it off sadly. I've since asked others and had people tell me they've smelled it too. Sadly, this alone will keep me from choosing it as a big night out date night.

I have been at this place previous years and the food was perfect also the service. Never really had a complain.
Until this visit happened, the food was just ok. The flavor was just like any other restaurant nothing special as it used to be . The service was poor our waiter keeps forgetting to bring us food, bread. He had us waiting for so long.

I had some perfectly prepared gnocchi, and the best octopus ever! My drink was spectacular as well. The menu on Open Table was the previous one, and the Halibut I came for was not to be found. However, by the end of the night I left, and immediately made reservations to return for some more octopus!
