Since the restaurant opened in 2007, diners have come to embrace and crave its refreshing combination of laid-back atmosphere and seriously good food, a neighborhood bistro that is the ultimate showcase for the type of cuisine that chef/owner Michael Schwartz does best – homemade.View Private Dining Details
Food was terrific as always.
Michael's never disappoints. Excellent from start to finish, and always a pleasure to see Robin & Irene.
Excellent location. Love the food and drinks definitely will be coming back again
Truly poor service. Asked for water and they only filled one of our glasses. The servers seemed bothered to serve us, had a bad attitude and made the experience unpleasant. Have been to Michael’s before, will not be going back.
Always reliable with buzzy atmosphere. I still
Miss the whole chicken.
Michael's as always surpassed expectations. Food, service, atmosphere were all great. I reccommend to all.
Michael's Genuine's food and dining experience is always amazingly and reliably great. There's nothing on the menu that isn't delicious.
Love it my Miami fave
Great place on the design district. Service was excellent.
Always a great experience at Michael’s . Great food and service !
Continues to be one of the best restaurants in Miami
Food was ok. The banana tarte tatin was really good.
We came me & my wife for a casual date
The food was really good, mixing perfectly the flavors
our server David was on point checking on us all the time to see if everything was good
Overall good service, good ambiance & good food
Everything was there
Would definitely go back
Another wonderful lunch. Creative food, great service.
My clients are always impressed.
Everything was fantastic. We have been dining here since this restaurant opened and it's every bit as good today as it was when it was virtually an "island" in the yet to be developed Design District. One thing that might be a good change, now that there are new businesses in every direction, would be to somehow limit the never ending flow of foot traffic that cuts through the outdoor dining for one reason or another.
But the restaurant experience, service and the food and wine were wonderful. The new somm is terrific too and his list very inventive and imaginative.
Outstanding service and excellent food!
I ordered the pork belly, it was pure fat, no meat whatsoever, not forgivable in a pricey place like this.
Always great - interesting menu, excellent execution, great fresh ingredients
Have eaten here multiple times- food is always good although menu is somewhat limited. Ceviche and rice cakes were very good. Chicken was good as was short ribs (fairly large portion but somewhat inconsistent texture); however tileflash was bland although moist and tender. Should note the $5 charge for bread on the menu (no price listed and waiters rarely tell you).
Excellent food and service. Great environment. A bit pricey for the portions.
We usually go for dinner, but this time lunch was great too! It seems when we dine in Miami we head to Michael's. We had poor service once but we gave it another try and we are glad that we did.
Nice outside seating. Great food.
it is Always very good. Every time we are in Miami, Michael´s is a must.
Whenever I come to Michael’s they make me feel at home. Even on busy days when it’s a little hectic the food is great, and if anything is not as expected the servers make sure to pass on the message and a manager will come by. They appreciate the feedback and make things right if ever something goes wrong.
The servers are great, especially Lian and Danilo, and while I don’t know the names of all the runners, Christina stands out and is always attentive. The manager Roberto usually comes by to check on us at least once during our meal and makes sure our dining experience is always positive.
They change up their menu on a regular basis, so whether I want something comforting and known or I’m in the mood to try something new, I’m never bored. The food and the service is exceptional, so I keep coming back!
Heat pre-game dinner, it was AMAZING! Octopus!!! Ceviche!!
Was expecting something better... it was ok but not impressed. Pork belly was too dry, Octupus was over seasoned and the Squash was burnt. Maybe next time...
Apps came along time before drinks.
Michael's Genuine has great food, creative menu and cocktails and impeccable service. Also a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. The cuisine is fresh and perfectly prepared. I live in Miami Beach and this is my go to restaurant. If you live in Miami or just visiting, Michael's is not to be missed.
As always, MGFD is reliably marvelous. Their signature wood-burning oven is always a good bet for anything finished in it, as are most vegetables and lots of main dishes as well!
Always amazing and this time was no exception.
Brought cousins visiting from Manhattan - they felt it was their best culinary experience in Miami & that includes significant competition.....
Everything is good- you can’t go wrong here!
Sean was great server and MGF did not dissapoint one more time . Love this place. Thank you
You can not sit outside unless you ask for it in advance as a Special Request, which was our case even though 80% of the tables were vacant. Our table inside was a little cramped for my taste but otherwise ok. The food was good but overrated in my honest opinion.
Beef shortrib was on the drier side, not as good as previous visit when I ordered it. Elote corn and duck con fit were excellent dishes!
Just as good as my first visit four years ago.
Absolutely fantastic experience here! On our second last-minute wknd visit to Miami from NYC this winter and a friend recommended Michael’s- so appreciative of the tip as this was our best meal here thus far. Each item was fresh and delicious, the wine was superb and our server and the sommelier were lovely and genuine. We can’t wait to come back again.
What a great restaurant. Amazing food; from ceviche, baked octopus, fresh sourdough bread with creamy goat butter and great sides: delicious corn and creamy mashed potatoes. I would definitely recommend it. The service was excellent as well, I didn’t like my cocktail and our server have it remade even though I told her she didn’t have to. This restaurant is going to be a part of our next Miami visit, for sure.
Love this place....
World class dining!! Delicious food and wonderful wine - great room and our server Cecilia was truly accommodating and knowledgeable.
Michael’s never disappoints. Brought some new costumera this time and they said the octopuss was one of the best they’d ever had, if not the best. I had short ribs and they were awesome. Sevice was efficient and helpful.
This is a must go place in Miami.
