We have been wanting to try Michaels Grill based on Open Table reviews and had a great meal. Food, atmosphere and service were all top notch. Will definitely add it to our list of favorites even though it is a 45 minute drive for us.

Michael's is the jewel of Carrollwood. The restaurant is ideal for a romantic date and an indulgent meal. Chef Michael is all about quality and fresh ingredients, and whether it's for brunch on weekends, lunch, or dinner, it's a wonderful culinary experience.

Very disappointing. Had NO IDEA of "pre-selected" menu, and FIXED PRICE. My main course (duck) was VERY dry and sent back for a steak. My wife's scallops were quite burned on one side and barely cooked on the other. They should have been thrown away. Will not recommend or return. Unpleasant NYE.

The best kept culinary secret in the Carrollwood area. Excellent food, ambiance and service. It feels like being at a bistro in a quit Parisean street. The Chef walks around every so often to mingle with the costumers.

We used to frequent Michael’s a lot but then ran j to some service issues and so stayed away. But decided to try again and were happy to see that the old Michael’s is back and we had a very good experience this time. Good was very good and service was excellent.

Ok little place. Limited menu, but what they have is very good. I had the steak au Poivre. It was good, but not great. I would have liked some expresso coffee, or if not that then real strong European coffee. In short, if you haven’t tried it then I would give it a go. Also, didn’t break the bank for something better than most. So, go and try it.

Michaels is always a local favorite. A creative menu, but never over the top. A good mix of classics and comfort food. Full bar, a reasonable corkage fee for your special wine. A solid go-to when you want a small, locally-owned restaurant with great food.

Again, another superb dinner!!! The she-crab bisque was marvelous as were the escargot. Three of us had the filet Mignon, one prepared Diane style even though not offered on the menu that way. The server, Taylor did a marvelous job. She was always there when needed but never interruptive. We have never been there previously when the restaurant was full and a large party in the party room. The service and food was still delivered timely and not rushed, and prepared as if we were the only patrons in the place. What a wonderful evening!

Had the BlackBerry duck. Really delicious. The risotto was overcooked and dry. My wife got the shrimp in cream sauce served over linguini, also delicious. The ambiance was slightly noisy, mostly because the background music is a little too loud and the tables are close together. Service was good. Chef came to take and talked to us. A very nice evening.

Great food as always. Service is exceptional. Reservation easy and fast.
We eat regularly at Michael's and been never disappointed with the food but criticized in the past the very short wine list.They listen and the new wine list is much larger and better selection, even a little pricey.
The only negative is that they charge cork fee now $ 20.00 ( was $ 15.00) in the past.
However, we surely will come back

We had an amazing birthday dinner for our grandson who turned 21. We reserved a table for 11 and everything was absolutely perfect. Joe was managing tonight and Kayla was our main server assisted by a very nice girl who’s name I forgot and I apologize to her. Both ladies were very accommodating to special request. All of our meals were outstanding, the salmon; the mango chicken; the pasta bolognese; crab cakes. Everything was amazing. This restaurant is a gem.
