This is one of the best haunts in Sarasota.... I will recommend friends as well.
This was our 3 time eating at Michael's On East in the past 6 months. The food, service and entertainment has been a disappointment since our first visit. We thought the 2nd visit was just an off night, so we tried it a third time...only to be very disappointed again. All 4 of our dishes were over cooked and very dry. Also, our waiter was rushed and not attentive. Went to the bar for an after dinner drink and to listen to the piano player but he was on break the entire time. The whole evening was a disappointment and I doubt we will be back again.
*The only good thing about our past two visits were the friendly valet parking attendants.
We were there for date night and loved the service. Food was very good as expected. Wine list was awesome and we were helped by manager of Wine cellar in choosing the wine. It was excellent.
Was not overjoyed with menu..went with Caesar salad...good staple. Some of the choices seemed to have additions a little that sounded a little exotic. Sometimes, simple and pure is better. Liked the ambience. Would go again.
Excellent meal for 4. The timing was impeccable, they did not rush nor they were slow. Food is very good, I would've like to have my ñoqui warmer, but if that's the only fault then everything is very, very good.
Excellent food and service.
Our waiter Kevin outstanding!
Piano player singing in bar was extremely loud, difficult to have a conversation in dining room.
Another great experience at Michael's On East. Food was delicious, lunch came out quickly, service was impeccable. Love the variety of dishes available and the chef's little twist on the ordinary. Thank you!
Michael's on East never disappoints! We've been going there for over 15 years! We moved down from the NYC area and Michael's on East is our favorite restaurant in Sarasota. The food, wine and service cannot be beat!!
Michael's on East was recommended to me and we gave it a go. WOW! were we delighted.... The food was awesome and the waitress (Kristi) we had was very thorough and professional. I enjoyed the Roasted Bone-In Pork Chop
Niman Ranch Prime Pork Chop, Caramelized Sweet Potatoes, Candied Pecans, Creole Mustard Reduction Sauce. I highly recommend this if you enjoy pork. We will be returning to Michael's very soon! This is 5 Star food and service!
