Been many times but on this visit had really subpar service. Waiter was dismissive when we did not order appetizers or starters. Totally ignored until time for bill. And wasn't too busy. Was socializing with friends at another table. Noticed several other tables had issues as well.
We went for brunch. Friendly staff and service. Food was just okay. Portions were very small. There were four of us and the food came out at different times for each of us. The one item they didn't have to cook from the Raw Bar took the longest to get. Overall it was okay.
Very enjoyable meal. Waiter-Liam-was exceptional. Chicken liver crostini and the whole chicken were delicious. French fries were not as good as they used to be.
Food fabulous at people watching frenetic frenzy. Gotta go!
The restaurant was buzzing with people from the Design Districts mainly. The appetizer of heirloom tomatoes and burrito was the best. Very delicious. The grilled octopus was rubbery and uneventful. The server took it off our check. The grouper was overcooked and so dry. So disappointed. But. The server was very professional and service oriented.
We waited over 45 minutes to even get a basket of bread. Service was bad, I will never eat there again.
The jumbo stone crabs were the best in the city. Octopus fantastic deviled eggs delicious!!
Excellent food and service
Was great food but the service was too slow we were waiting 30 min between appetizers and main course , but desert was coming with apology and free!;) still the best restaurant in Design District for the ladt 6 years
Very nice terrace
Amazing experience as always!! Thank you to the staff ❤️
Went for brunch, was nice a relaxing! Love the location and the food was tasty!
We were there for lunch and it took over 30 minutes to get our meal. The meals were average and the portions small . I was expecting more.
Delicious! Two in our group had the Tuna Bowl, while I had the Arugula and Pear Salad with Grilled Shrimp. We all stated our meal was great. As well, our server, Danilo, was very professional. Anticipatory, attentive, pleasant and thorough. We enjoyed the Michael’s Genuine experience immensely!
Smokers should be given a table on the periphery. There were 4 people sitting at the table next to us and it just ruined our meal. In addition, when the pompano was served the bone was not removed until we were about 1/4 way through.
Really fun lively spot. Service was great, food great. A lot of fun!
Been twice and it was witthbteyurning too
The food was ok but not special in any ways. Definitely over priced! A small piece of a one side fillet of a local grouper $28...A small bowl of butter lettuce $15! Etc etc. We had to wait for our table as no one of the staff would clean a empty one even though we had a reservation and arrived on time. We won’t be going back so fast. Shame. They’re so many restaurants to choose from, one would think that restaurants would try harder and give better value but nope.
Amazing service and food!
We know this place for many years. Excellent food and service, always fresh farm products, friendly staff. Pork belly and hair loom tomatoes salat are amazing. Love this place...
Amazing quality food, 10/10 delicious!
Great food, great service and always consistent!
Took 2 hours to get the food which did not all come at the same time. After all that time the $84 steak was rare when we asked for it to be medium and the fingerling potatoes were raw.
Amazing food and great service
Has always been 1 of our favorites, thus was a business lunch client was from palm beach had never dined here he was impressed with the food prep & quality. Service was a bit off who
The food is not what is was in prior years At best, all our dishes were average.
The location, food, and every-day experience at Michael's Genuine earns the restaurant 5 stars. Confidently I am able to bring guests new to Miami to Michael's and it never disappoints. The contemporary American cuisine with a Miami-flare is a great introduction to our local cuisines and the setting makes every guest feel like they are somewhere special.
Place never disappoints
The best brunch in the history of brunches and great cocktails.
Good location. Good flavor on most of the small plate.
It's been several years since my last visit and now I remember why. I had a 9:15pm reservation and didn't get seated until 10:30pm. That's completely unacceptable. The manager send over some $5 potato chips and dip as compensation for the wait. Also totally unacceptable. While the food and drinks were great, it is not worth the way they treat people there. Maybe I'll go back in another couple of years after I forget about this horrible experience.
Losing its edge. Still good
Always a blast! Amazing food, great atmosphere
Will be back soon!
The food is consistently delicious, fresh and innovative. Staff is helpful, friendly and thoughtful about remembering allergies. One of my Miami favorites!
Wonderful restaurant in a beautiful setting. Great food. Great people watching.
Dining with the team at Michael's Genuine produces that feeling that you know you are home. From the moment you walk in the door, the host greets you as if you are family. The servers always recognize and have friendly face for new and returning patrons. Although delicious and creative cuisine generally is the main factor for a successful restaurant (and I agree), I also recognize the importance of a well trained team that facilitates the production of the intended dining experience. With the understated casual atmosphere incorporated into the mix, the entire ingredients are there for a memorable experience. I am a big Fan.
Delicious food and great service. We sat outside, and it was lovely.
Super service great atmosphere very good as always
One of the best Sunday brunches, great ambiance, great place!
Not the usual amazing must visit miami restaurant. Server was poor and food was just ok.
