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.
The appetizers were excellent but the entrees we ordered were just okay.
Good food, great service!
Loved everything! I had the crab soup and crab cakes. Both were absolutely delicious.
The other meals included the pork chop Diane, chicken with mushrooms, bangers.... Everyone was thrilled! We will go back!
Nice lunch. Guest enjoyed themselves.
Michaels never disappoints! Always have a great meal in a warm, friendly environment. Chef Michael even came over to chat with us. Wonderful night!
Great food, great service!
Great neighborhood, locally-owned bistro type restaurant. Never disappointed here after many meals.
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.
New Year’s Eve dinner
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.
One of the best meals we’ve ever had! Can’t wait to go back!
We were very impressed. The service and food were excellent. We look forward to eating there again soon.
We found this local gem on OpenTable. Great Tampa place to eat and celebrate special occasion.
This restaurant is one of my favorites. I highly recommend it.
Fantastic food and service. I’ve never had anything bad from the menu. Anytime I bring someone, they love it just as much!
First time at this restaurant. Nice intimate setting in a cozy environment. Good for romantic dinner or getting together with family or friends. Delicious food with nice presentation. I highly recommend Michael's Grill!!
Wonderful Christmas Eve dinner!! Great service great food!
Michael’s Grill is a very nice bistro style restaurant with great options like escargot and duck. The entire table found it tough to chose between all the great sounding choices.
It was a little noisy on the Friday night prior to the Christmas holidays. Generally that is not a problem. The people were friendly, Michael and Andrea always say hello! A pleasant experience again.
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.
It was a little hard to get someone's attention at the being, but when I did it was a nice time. Food well prepared and served promptly. We'll come back.
Dinner was wonderful, and we were in and out in 1 hour, but never felt rushed. We will definitely be back.
This restaurant is one of my favorites in Tampa. They serve the best sangria in all Florida. There is no better sangria in all of Florida, period.
Love Michaels. Always great food. Attentive service. The grouper special was outstanding.
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.
Excellent service by the entire staff. The crab bisque and entrees - Grouper special, were very good; especially the selection of accompaniments. As always, the Sticky Toffee Bread Pudding and Creme Brulee were fantastic! Be sure to leave room for dessert!
Excellent service and great food in a relaxed atmosphere
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.
food is always hot, fresh and tasty. service was spot on. outdoor option is great
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!
Cute little cafe, amazing food
Outstanding meal and service. Great place for outdoor eating. Relaxed atmosphere with great specials.
One of the best meals we’ve had here- and we’ve been customers for years. The wine selection was nice , the grouper snd couscous impeccably cooked , other meals were raved about, and the red velvet cake was tasty. Service was particularly outstanding too! A home run!
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.
Came in for a late Sunday brunch with friends. Such a good time! Mimosas were delicious and the hollaindaise sauce is always worth getting! So yummy and their specials always change and give you even more options to try!
We like to support our local businesses and this is one we enjoy the dining experience. The environment is friendly and relaxed. The food is delicious; brunch is our favorite!
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.
