The meal is always prepared to order. Our party has some food allergies, and the staff and chef were more than accommodating. Needless to say, this us one of our favorite spots. A worthwhile trip to get here and eat a wonderful meal.

I’m very picky when it comes to food and places to eat. Saw dis place on da food network channel and decided to surprise my wife by taking her there. My wife is s veal eater and hasn’t had it in a long time but when she ate it at Michael’s she loved it. We will definitely go back again. Forgot to mention she said da veal was like butter so soft and tender

Cost a lot of money for basic food that you can get anywhere. I think $28 for Chicken Parm is excessive. $14. for a mixed drink too.

Every time we go to Michael’s it gets better! Appetizers were fantastic… We had fried calamari, stuffed artichokes, and Margherita pizza. Plenty to go around for six people. The chicken Parm melts in your mouth and can be cut with your fork only. Red wine choices are excellent. I had the braised short ribs and they fell off the bone and were delicious. Our waiter is one of the nicest man in the business and we were once again greeted One of the owners… We had an assortment of desserts brought out on the tray that kept off an unbelievable meal along with our after dinner drinks. One of the best dinners we’ve ever celebrated as a family! We will be back soon…

Great place! Nice to visit a full sized restaurant in Brooklyn. We went for Valentine's Day, so there was a large select menu where we had to order an appetizer, meal, dessert and coffee/tea...poor us! Everything was excellent, and the ambiance was classy yet not snooty. Will definitely go back. Service was great.

Went for the food but all else was excellent including their own valet parking. But Brooklyn needs a traffic engineer to keep traffic moving especially durring the busy times.

Not worth the drive. I prefer New Corner in Bay Ridge or Picollo Venezia in Astoria. The lobster bisque was awful; the rollatini was nothing special; the clams were good and so was the veal Marsala, not this was not worth the effort to get to. Disappointed.

Food was delicious. For apps we ordered grilled octopus. It was cooked perfect but could have used a little salt. For dinner I had shrimp and shiitake with papardelle and the pasta and shrimp were cooked perfectly. Husband had surf and turf. Filet mignon was melt in your melt. Ambience was great. Went on a Friday night and was a little noisy but still able to hold a normal conversation. Service was great. Overall good experience would go again
