Enjoyed the salmon with rice dish. Very tasty. Ate every morsel. Homemade bread and butter were good too. Service was taking so long to take order we were just about to leave.

We first dined at Michael’s over 17 years ago. Today we celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary and couldn’t think of a better place to spend it. The food is fresh, complex, exciting, and impeccably plated. The staff is attentive, and kind, and made every accommodation to ensure we had a wonderful experience. Can’t wait to go back soon!

Had 7:15 reservation for party of 4. A table was becoming available. Unfortunately NO social distancing. Place was packed. We opted to sit at bar around 7:30 and ordered pretty quickly. At 8:30 inquired if food was even being cooked as we were planning to leave and advised them of such. They assured us food would be out shortly. Apologized for the wait. Food finally arrived at 5 to 9. Felt that they should’ve known place was a mess and that food would not be offered quickly. At that point we would’ve left and found another place. At 8:30 was a bit late to make a decision like that but we were willing to since we had no food.

Loved their food and the look of Michael’s Grill. I wish there would be some background ambiance while you dine. It felt like you almost had to whisper while dining due to it being a small intimate establishment. Even at a very low volume it would be a great value add. Look forward to coming back!

We waited over an hour for our food. We were having lunch and the place wasn’t super busy. Our server only checked on us once and acted as though it was an inconvenience. The food was cold and not prepared the way we ordered it. Customer service is definitely lacking here as well as the quality of food. This was our second time here giving it a second chance from having a not so great experience the first time.

Great food. They did change the wine menu significantly and don’t carry things they had in the past. That was disappointing.

This place is a true gem. My wife and I don’t go out that much but when we do it’s usually some place nice and usually downtown Tampa or south Tampa. This place is every bit as good as those restaurants and feels like it shouldn’t be in Carrollwood... but thankfully it is and much closer to our home. Try the crab bisque. It must be the congac that gives it its rich, deep flavor. Our steaks were perfectly prepared and the service was very quick when it came to drinks but not rushed when it came to our anniversary dinner. A really top notch experience. I really like how small the place is as the noise level is much lower than most restaurants. Not to take away from Michael’s but right next door is a wine bar with excellent live music Friday and Saturday nights. Having dinner then going next door for a glass of wine and a very intimate outdoor concert made our anniversary really special.

Super cute restaurant!! The atmosphere was calming and relaxing. The food was incredible!! Soup, steak and seafood were all delicious. This is truly a hidden gem and we can’t wait to go back.
The cutest thing was that our table was actually reserved with a card on the table. I love little touches and this restaurant definitely has an eye for detail.

Great restaurant for date night, groups, families or even take-out! The food is excellent and wine pours are generous. They have indoor or outdoor seating, and space for larger groups. Michael's Grill has been here for a long time, and recently they made some additional upgrades to be even more "covid-safe." The owners are there regularly to make sure the food and service is perfect. And, even if they are not there, their staff has been well trained. We love Michael's Grill! We've been going for years & highly recommend!
