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. Our main dining room and courtyard seat 100, and The Bar Room, an additional 16, with 24 more seats at a welcoming bar. Sunday Brunch is where our small plates shine on a weekly-changing menu of savory and sweet. Our restaurant is located in the vibrant Design District neighborhood, luxury fashion’s new playground in Miami.

Food was incredibly delicious! Our waitress was wonderful. My only complaint would be that I sat with an empty drink and finished plates for longer than we should have! The snapper was on point as well as octopus app!!!

I ordered my chicken and fries with no salt. Both came loaded in salt. They offered to make me another one. I was on my lunch break. I didn’t have time to wait. I went back to work hungry. Didn’t eat lunch. I was very upset

The only bad thing was that we had a reservation and we were received as we didn’t have one, people that didn’t have one were seated before us and in a pretty nice table

I can not say enough about this place. One of my all time favorite restaurants. You can go in there close your eyes and randomly point to anything on the menu and you’ll love it. Everything is spectacular here. Service was exceptional this time as well, our server was Andres. This time around we had the stracciatella, the tuna crudo, the pork belly, grouper and banana creme pie. I think the pork belly was my favorite but it was all soooo good it’s hard to say. I already can’t wait to go back.

Set in The Design District of Miami, FL this restaurant never disappoints. Wine List, Menu offerings, Ambiance (outdoor courtyard is my preference), well-trained and knowledgeable staff. Great Food & Drink. A stable fixture in an otherwise very fickel food service city.

It’s always a pleasure to go to Michael’s. The food is great, our fave is the new yuca bites, the chips and dip, pig ears and well everything is honestly so tasty. I usually have the octopus and my husband loves the burgers which is so juicy!
