Michael's Tasting Room Ratings and Reviews
Totally overated and mislabled as a spanish tapas restaurant. They have no clue as to what real spanish food is supposed to taste. Worst shrimp al ajillo ever! Nice and friendly staff but have no clue of what is professional level service. Go for the wine tasting only although their wine list is well overpriced.
We live locally and it was our first time at the restaurant. I read mixed reviews prior to booking. Our experience was wonderful. We made reservations. The service was attentive, the food was prepared perfectly- salmon was cooked spot on along with the short ribs, the vegetables were in season, the wine selection was extensive. The prices are comparable to any mid/ range restaurant. We had an appetizer, 2 glasses of wine and meal all for under $100.00 not including the tip.
Do need let the restaurant exterior deceive you. The inside is cozy and inviting. We loved the experience and will be back again.
Took my wife here for our first wedding anniversary. My wife has a food allergy and cannot have any dairy what-so-ever. I called the restaurant ahead of time to let them know and they went above and beyond to accommodate us and went as far as creating a menu for that evening that was completely dairy free . I was very impressed with this establishment from top to bottom. Service was outstanding, food was excellent. I cannot say enough about Michael and the staff, they provide a superb dining experience. We will be going back
Great experience. We had a great tasting meal and wonderful service. It was really cold on Sunday, we waited for our reservation which ran late and wished they got those space heaters going to make us comfortable while waiting. Definitely will go again on a regular night to get more options and not on a night for a set menu.
Excellent service - table was not ready so they gave us each a drink and an appetizer to share in their wine room. Above and beyond. Burger was truly phenomenal and the met time w go back I will have it again. Other entree was filet mignon. Smaller portion, but at least it wasn’t manageable and not a waste. Fantastic meal.
Overall it is a nice place and we enjoyed our meal. However, the service was very slow. Took quite a while to get our 2 drinks once ordered (wine and beer) and the one app/tapas that we ordered took a long time. Everything was slow. Once we got our bill, she took a long time to come back and get it to process. Maybe it was just our server? She was nice but very slow and not overly attentive. Definitely affected our experience. Also thought it was a little pricey for what we got. For these prices, I at least expect quicker and more attentive service to make it a more quality experience.
Were seating outside even though we asked to be seated inside because there were plenty of tables inside available. Fiancé ordered the grilled chicken and it was extremely under cooked (bleeding). Server was friendly but will disappear every time we had a request
Menu has a really nice selection and the wine list is extensive. The food was cooked to perfection. Service was good. My only complaint is that I wanted a cappuccino and the machine was down. So I asked for a decaf coffee, and the waiter said they didn't have any. Never heard of such a thing. I felt like they wanted to clear the table.
Fantastic service. David our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Good was great. We focused on the small plates and really enjoyed the pork skewers and the goat cheese. Wonderful and plentiful sangria. Finally the restaurant has a cozy romantic atmosphere but remains family friendly. A good choice in the old city.
Very favorite Place to eat on occasion. Extensive wine list. Great Small plate offerings. They had changed up to a winter menu during this visit. Was not as fond of the Main offerings and was slightly disappointed with it to be honest. The menu is limited but everything is very good and well prepared. The service was very good and our server was polite and friendly and came back to check a few times to fill wine and give service. One of our favorite places. Need more main menu offerings please.
Hostess had an attitude! Server didn’t write down our order (party of five) and one person in or party didn’t get their salad, the servers response “orders come out if the kitchen as they are prepared!” Translation, he didn’t write anything down, so he never placed the order. One person in our party did not get their appetizer, the servers response “Oh it didn’t come out?” Translation “He never placed the order.” One person in our party did not get their entree, when it arrived (Scallops, arrived 10 minutes later!) was room temperature. No apologizes from our server! When he presented our check he said “Oh, I removed the appetizer from your bill.” He said it like he was doing us a favor, our response “. “Thank you for not charging us for something we did not receive!” The restraint offered us no compensation for all the servers mistakes. We will never dine here again, definitely over rated!!!! Beware!!!!
Had friends in from Denver and wanted to show them one of the Gems of St. Augustine. They were not disappointed. I have dined here multiple times and have always been amazed. I am a bit of a service snob and have always been very impressed. Everyone needs to experience Michael's Tasting Room!!!!
Dined alone on the small patio. Delicious food and wine pairing. Watched the world go by. Dining alone is not my favorite but the small outside table was perfect. My food was wonderful and I was content even solo.
Could have eaten a whole tray of the salmon mousse amuse bouche!
