I was really disappointed after reading all the reviews. My friend came from Hemet and I thought I would treat her to this restaurant. I ordered the appetizer of shrimp and clams and the broth was outstanding but the shrimp was overcooked and out of six clamshells only two had clams in them and they weren’t in the bottom of the dish. they charge a quarter for butter a quarter for extra salad dressing and a very Poor Caesar salad. She ordered gnocchi that was new to the menu however the gnocchi was tough it was they were not soft. I would not recommend nor would I ever go back a very expensive lunch for very poor food.
We’ve been here plenty of times for pasta and we always leave satisfied. Today the food the slow to roll out and I understand the place was packed ( love seeing it packed creates a nice ambiance) but the delay in food was long enough that I wasn’t exited for the food. Then the food came out and it was just okay... which is sad for valentines dinner. The servers were super nice and checking in when necessary.
I always enjoy a trip to Michael's. When my wife and I went, it was mid-week, and so a much more subdued evening. Nevertheless, the food was delicious and the service was friendly and efficient. I fight myself every time to keep from stealing their chili infused oil condiment.
Great food! Vegan pizza and pasta along with great "normal" food for my friends. Great service, clean, fun place for a group! Thanks!
Despite requesting a table inside when we reserved (chilly night), we were seated outside. With our jackets and once the heater was turned on at our request, it was fine, but not preferable. Our pizza, spaghetti bolognese and burrata and pear appetizer were only ok, which was disappointing, especially given the price.
As always the service, food and ambiance is top notch. Space heaters provided for the cool of the winter evening in the patio.
Delicious food, great beverage options, and lovely staff. Would definitely dine here again
Not very attentive sever. Forgot several
My son goes to Long Beach State so we made the trip up from San Diego to take him out to dinner. There were only reservations for the bar but we switched out to the community table. Everything was excellent! Our server, Camille, was beyond fabulous. She was sweet and informative, attentive and personable. The food was all delicious too! We had apps, then our main courses and ended with gelato and tiramisu! All around awesome!
Great environment when seated outdoors. Really recommend as a date night or a hang out with a group of 4. (:
Great food. Good value for the dine LA event. Service was a bit slow especially as the restaurant was not busy
Went to Michael's Downtown as part of Dine LA. We had the $39 tasting menu. 4 courses and all great. Our server was wonderful and David who also works the front was quite accommodating when we asked for a table instead of the bar. No wonder the place was packed. Such a good time.
It was so good! Had been meaning to go for awhile and happy I did. This was for brunch on Sunday but they have their full menu too. Things were ordered from both and tasted great! The one exception was the eggs were a bit too salty. Likely a one off because everything else was great. The filing in the donut holes...yuuum🤗
Always excellent food and outstanding service in a comfortable friendly environment. Their chefs and wait staff are always top notch! Their pizza takes me back to Naples.
Put a note in reservation that it was a special 82nd Birthday celebration and mentioned it again on the way in. It was totally forgotten/ignored. Very disappointed. The food was great though.
I loved the grain bowl. It was very good with added shrimp, that was cooked perfectly. The avocado portion was very generous.
This is our go to Italian restaurant. Great fresh pasta and real Italian style pizza never disappoint. Comfort food for our family
The service was great— friendly and prompt, the food was amazing!
Muy rico! Pidan el pollo a la prmesana
We had brunch at 11am and it wasn’t too busy yet. Food was delicious! Service was great! Pretty inside and outside. They even have Etch A Sketch for kids to use. Since it wasn’t busy, the adults got their own Etch A Sketch to play with also. The charcuterie board is a lot of food - definitely worth the value. The portobello benedict is super yummy - I can eat that “hollandaise” sauce all day! Loved the french toast and ricotta pancakes as well. We also had the meat pizza, the special burger, and typical breakfast plate. The panna cotta, tiramisu, and gelato will satisfy your dessert needs. Our tummies we’re definitely happy!!
Appetizers and pizza was good but main courses were very average. Wouldnt go back as there are to many other better places
Absolutely delicious food and lovely casual, yet inviting and special. Will definitely visit again and recommend to my friends!
Waitress and staff were both amazing. Hospitality was A1
I had the food/wine pairing and it was delicious! Great cocktails too. A nice way to splurge a little.
This was our first time and think we found our new go to spot. Great food, wine and service.
I celebrated my birthday at Michael’s and it was great.
Food and service were amazing. The bolognese was to die for
Hearty, flavorful, delicious Italian food. I generally do not prefer Italian food, but the Emiliana pizza, lasagna, and the Chicken parmigiana were amazing.
Fresh, flavorful, and seasonal food
Alway a great experience and lovely food in a casual friendly comfortable downtown oasis. Happy hour is inventive and monthly pasta dinners a must.
Fun location. Food was excellent!
Quite, not every full. Waiter came around often enough.
Very pleasant. Good food and good service. A pleasant surprise. Would return if in the area. Nice outdoor seating with heaters.
Great service/ fresh and tasty food
Michael's Downtown is on the Promenade, the pedestrian area in Long Beach. We enjoyed the nice weather in the outdoor seating area. We tried the prosciutto, burratta and pear appetizer which was very tasty. I was excited to try the homemade pastas, but was disappointed when my tagliatelle was mushy and not al dente. The taste was great, but the pasta was not enjoyable. Try their chili oil, it's great with some crusty bread or on the pasta.
Eight of us ate there and everyone raved about their dinner choices. Waiter was friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend!
We really enjoyed the evening at Michael's - the food was amazing, the waiter was very friendly and helpful, the ambiance was excellent...I would definitely go there again.
