Michaels on east is a lovely hidden gem. Super piano player/singer. Nice group of employees all the way around.
My only complaint was that I reserved on Open table and when I called regarding the dress code. They had no reservations for me. I had confirmation by Open table.
Dani the hostess was very kind and made sure our time etc was available
We will definitely put this on our list of go to restaurants

The food and atmosphere are always great at this Sarasota stalwart. The swordfish, scallops, and lamb chops are superb.

Although the food and service were excellent, we were put off by the loud piano playing in the bar, which could easily be heard in the dining room.

We always choose this restaurant when we want to have a special dinner, either asa couple or with friends. The food is always good, portions are generous, service is impeccable and the noise level makes conversation possible. All in all, one of the best restaurants in the Sarasota area!

Always been my favorite restaurant in Sarasota but extremely disappointing this time .
Beautifully prepared expensive steak served on COLD PLATES and was lukewarm.
Service slow as understaffed.

Not acceptable when one is paying top prices and expect quality

This is the 3rd or 4th time we have had dinner at Michael’s on East. Two have been for special occasions. We have never had anything close to a bad meal or experience . The service is excellent . Our server , Joe , was very friendly , knowledgeable about the menu and made good suggestions . The quality and variety of the food was also excellent . I travel and dine at fine restaurants around the US and the world and I believe that Michael’s on East has the right formula of excellent quality food, menu selection, interesting tasting menu’s coupled with a positive , friendly but non intrusive customer service that is harder and harder to find these days . Clearly , we will be back to dine again at Michael’s on East in the future.

Service simply could not have been better. Food courses were great as always. Top end dining for Sarasota, with a top end price.
