Since Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink first opened in the Miami Design District in spring of 2007, diners have come to embrace and crave its refreshing combination of laid-back atmosphere and seriously good food, a neighborhood bistro that is the ultimate showcase for the type of cuisine that chef/owner Michael Schwartz does best – homemade, unpretentious, delectable, with an emphasis on great local ingredients. Bon Appétit Magazine wrote in 2022 "Michael's Genuine is refreshingly approachable yet upscale, offering guests a true neighborhood gem where you can sit back, relax, and enjoy simple, consistently delicious dishes." In 2022, the first Florida MICHELIN Guide honored the restaurant with a Bib Gourmand awards.

    The food was not the best, they try to do a spin to the culinary experience, but it just missed all around. The server was nice, but he could’ve been a lot more attentive. Lastly, the amount of mosquitoes inside the restaurant, I should’ve brought bug spray.
