MA's is a must go to in Hilton Head. For over 20 years we have made our way their 2 times per year.
It's the finest Italian restaurant in Hilton Head by far.
It was delicious! Great service! We loved dining and will be back!
Haven’t been to Michael Anthony’s in a few years. We live closer to Savannah, so we usually dine in the city. Went for restaurant week, and the prefix menu was on point. Our server, Jonathan, was wonderful. We will be back! Worth the drive to the Island.
Just a wonderful dinner this evening. Selected two entrees from the Restaurant Week menu. Both were simply outstanding. Initially, we were seated upstairs, as we had agreed to. Once seated, we were very close to a table of 10, who were having a lively conversation. I commented to the Maitre d’ about the noise, but we were resigned to our seats. Not 5 minutes had passed when the hostess came up to us and offered to move us downstairs to a quiet booth. Now, THAT is service. The food was beautifully plated; our server was delightful. Everything was perfect. Going back next Saturday! Can’t wait 😁
Excellent food and service. Would highly recommend.
Birthday dinner was so nice and service and attentiveness was great.
Lovely dinner and atmosphere
Music was too loud...
The ambience was very classy and romantic and the food was amazing. We got the caprese appetizer and split gnocchis for our entrée which was plenty enough food. For someone who does not typically eat tomatoes, my boyfriend was very impressed with the quality and flavors of these dishes. The gnocchis were perfect and for dessert the panna cotta was my favorite even though I typically enjoy chocolate dishes. The service was excellent and they were very helpful with our wine selection which we ended up getting a bottle of something that was off menu. We will definitely be returning!
This place was outstanding! Pasta and seafood was very fresh. Had Cesar salad which was wonder and a past special with shrimp, scallops, crab and lobster tail. Will go to this place again next time I am in HHI.
Dinner with friends in town on Valentines Day. Great service and food contributed to a special evening.
First time and we enjoyed it very much! I think the bar and main dining area is nicer than the wine room we were in.
Everything was delightful except on leaving restaurant we found we had parked on something that ruined our tire. Had the expense of a new tire added to our dinner bill
enjoyed the wine flights they offered! that's a fun addition to dinner. Had the beet salad, trout (special), bolognese and desert trio. loved them all!
We celebrated our parents 43rd anniversary!! The food was outstanding!! we would come back
Home made pasta was excellent/ one sauce had a seasoning that was not to my liking
Our meal was excellent! All the staff were friendly and courteous. We will definitely return.
Food was amazing. My wife got the fish special and I got the pasta special. Both were well prepared and delicious. Desert (chocolate lava cake) was worth the 12 minute wait just as Lucy, our waitress, said it would be. Lucy took great care of us. We will definitely come back when we visit Hilton Head again.
Great like always. Sat upstairs but after a brief period the other couple sitting upstairs left. Not the best ambiance or like the main floor which we are accustomed to. All else great.
This was our first time dining at Michael Anthony’s since Covid. I was relieved to see the staff following the mask rules. Our dinner was superb. My husband had the red fish and I had the spaghetti with clams, both were excellent. We shared the beef carpaccio to start and also shared the chocolate lava cake. I would recommend both. Jonathan was our waiter and was on top of everything, very attentive. The wine list is really impressive. Will definitely return
Most times you go out to eat, but at Michael Anthony's it is truly a dining experience.
I will be back every time I visit Hilton Head.
If you love Italian food you will love this place
Food is consistently delicious. Service excellent! A favorite of ours for sure. Tables are well spread out so you can feel comfortable during this time.
Dinner was for our anniversary. Service was fantastic. Our server Kat was very good. She made our meal enjoyable. Both of our meals were delicious. We are looking forward to trying the other meals on the menu.
The veal chop was amazing! Thank you to chef Kenny. We’ve never had a bad meal here and look forward to coming to Michael Anthony’s every time we are on the island.
The restaurant presents itself quite well with a welcoming feel and a touch of romantic warmth. The staff is quite competent and friendly. The menu seems a bit limited to reflect a pasta-only mentality. The Caesar salad was recommended to accompany our entrees. The dressing on the salad was rather bland and lacked the garlic seasoning that my palate anticipated. My shrimp on spinach pasta was a sizable portion and looked inviting. Unfortunately the sauce was largely without the zest that taste buds expect with such a dish. I’m not sure why the chef was so ready to “play it safe” with the seasoning that could have made for a repast of note to go with a beautiful setting and able staff.
Heard a lot of great things about M Anthony’s, and this was our first experience. We sat with friends in the wine room which has very nice ambiance. Service was outstanding, Juan was great and never rushed us at all - we took much more time than normal as new friends and getting to know each other better. I had the Osso Buco which was tasty, except the accompanying risotto which had very little flavor. My wife had scallops accompanied by risotto which she said also was not very tasty - scallops were good, but not exceptional. They have a nice wine list so you can certainly find something to meet your taste and cost profile. Will try it again, but this trip a bit disappointed considering people’s impressions.
Lovely resto and food amazing.....only thing is we were rushed..food came way too fast between courses and no reason as the house was certainly not full....maybe try one more time....but will be so disappointed if we are treated that way again.
Great food, good service but unexplained dessert long delay. Decaf was old. But that was a nit on a very good meal.
The food was awesome and the service was great. Food came out of the kitchen hot and quickly!
We came for a friend’s birthday and could not have had a better experience. There were countless surprises, extra bites or fun drinks, and an extremely special and intimate seating arrangement for us in the test kitchen of the restaurant.
In addition to the service, food was outstanding. Cannot wait to return.
Thanks for following COVID rules. Always a delight! GREAT food! Took advantage of the Anniversary special. Had a hard time trying to decide which entre because they all sounded lovely and chose a veal dish that was wonderful....allowed me to alter the sides and then added a side of pasta with mushrooms which was superb. Great wine selection. MARVELOUS service. NOTE TO VISITORS - Don't miss this one!!!
Food was amazing as usual. They offered a special menu celebrating their 19th year in business which had something for everyone. We thought it was a little louder than usual and we were disappointed that Kat, one of our favorite servers, had the night off.
Food always delicious and service was very good. Had a wonderful evening in the wine room.
A wonderful meal was consumed by all. Wonderful,service as usual. The only complaint was a bout the beer selections, but told him when in Italy we drink wine. Wine list is to die for.
One of our favorite restaurants. The meal we had was not the best we've had, but still very good. My only complaint this visit was the fact that two couples sitting across the room from each other kept talking extremely loudly to each other, which definitely ruined the normal ambiance we are used to at Michael Anthony's. I was happy to see both couples leave. Very inconsiderate.
As local residents, Michael Anthonys has always been one of our favorites. We have been VERY PARTICULAR about going to restaurants due to the pandemic. As always we were not disappointed. Food, service, social distancing (in the room we sat in) were all the exceptional!
As usual, the food, service and ambiance were great. The only problem we had this time, was the table near us had some pretty loud people. We were socially distanced.
Best Hilton Head restaurant — upscale Italian with food and service you’d find in a big city fine dining spot.
The customer service was excellent from the greeting at the door, to the bartender, and the wait staff. They seemed to work as a team. The food was delicious! I’ve eaten here on several occasions through the last 5 years and I’ve never had a bad meal.
