Michael's Genuine Food & Drink - Cleveland
Excellent food and service. We had appetizers (deviled eggs - delicious), and four different dinners: kobia, burger, pasta and flat iron steak. We all enjoyed our dinners. The service was excellent and our server made it fun. They had a designated person wiping down tables, chairs, handles with wipes while we were there. The place was spotless and we felt safe. Highly recommend.
Delicious meal. Very nice service.
Delicious lamb meatball appetizer followed by kale salad with shrimp. Efficient waitstaff.
We love this place. Food is terrific and service is friendly and fast.
Our dining experience is always enhanced by David , his sense of humor and attentiveness are great. It would be nice to have more gluten free / dairy free entree options available , the menu is limited, at least we’ve enjoyed what we’ve ordered.
Good to have Michaels in the neighborhood
changed the menu, not as good as it used to be. slow service
I had the Cobia dish that was excellent. Service was really good. I will definitely be going back.
Always great cocktails & wine. Creative Italian Asian fusion
We went to celebrate our son’s 13th birthday. We chose Michael’s because we have loved the Miami location for a while and we were not disappointed! The staff was warm and welcoming. We were there for brunch, and when we asked for something off the menu they did their best to accommodate. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the newest addition to the Michael’s Genuine family. From the moment we walked in the door until we left it was a wonderful experience.
Jennifer, It was so nice to meet you and your family!! Thank you for all the kind words and review! The team loves what they do, and I'm glad it shows! We look forward in you joining us again. Thank You, Gina
Service impeccable, food delicious! Only suggestion, I wish the tables were farther apart
There is a moderate noise level and good (not great) service, so it is a nice place for a business lunch. However, it would be nice if they had a separate lunch menu, there are very few options under $20.
My husband and I had a rare early night and came in. We love this place!! I was in before him and had a great conversation with the girls at the bar!
We ordered a bit different this time. They were out out the tomato panzanella salad, which is my favorite. So I had the octopus instead. I love it there!
We also tried a pizza this time- the onion and ricotta. The couple on the other side of us was having it and it looked good. Yes- I’m a nosy eater.
It was ok. A bit sweet for our taste. Next time we would get the sausage or order it with prosciutto to break up the sweetness of the cheese and onions. I added arugula and prosciutto to our leftovers and it was perfect! Next time , I’ll ask for the additions.
Can’t wait to go back for brunch next week!
Food was good, decent service, very little privacy, tables very close together.
Nice location, we visited Miami location so curious about new Cleveland location.
Ordered Octopus app and it was very tasty.
Branzino entree was not de-boned so although liked flavors the bones presented an issue. The speciality pizza out of Brick oven was great. It’s a very tight space and if in a party of 2 expect to be elbow-elbow with your neighbor. We will certainly return, the outdoor patio looks to have potential in warmer months!
Michael's was a great spot for Valentine's dinner. Food was delicious, and our server, Jed, was the consummate professional. I would definitely recommend to friends and family. Van Aiken redevelopment is a great addition to the Cleveland area.
Great place with interesting menu! Great cocktails, too.
They brought me a nice dessert with a candle for my birthday.
Michaels was just OK. I heard lots of food comments so we were looking forward to our dinner. Tables are very small and positioned close together. We were at a 4 top and my knees were hitting my friends legs next to me.
Menu is limited. Had the burger which was not to exciting. Thin patty and minimal condiments. For $18 I expected much better.
Server was kind and funny. That was the high point.
We did order the humus and pita which was very good.
I probably will not go back.
Could barely hear music was so loud. Food very salty. Salad was good. Will not go back.
The hamburgers are wonderful and the pizza was excellent. The entree salads were a little underwhelming for the price.
Great place for brunch. The pancakes are the best I have ever had. Crispy outside but so tender inside. Biscuits and sausage gravy have such a unique flavor and really stand out from the norm. The hash was made with veggies from local farms. As always the service is fantastic. Very attentive without being intrusive. Overall a fantastic experience each time we have visited.
Thank you for all your kind words! We have a lot of fun at the market Saturday morning preparing for the weekend. Hospitality is very important to us! Looking forward to you joining us again soon Judy! Thank You, Gina
This is my 3rd visit to Michael's and every visit was as good as the last. Their hummus is delicious, and rigatoni with beef and ricotta is outstanding. The service was attentive and special requests were met with kindness and responsiveness. I love that reservations can be made, and hope to return soon again!
Ordered soup of the day; it was delightful. Enjoyed the pizza special as well-gorgonzola and fig did not disappoint. Exceptional dough--truly a lovely meal.
Very good service, food food and wine. Will go back!
Our family is making Michael's Genuine Food & Drink a regular stop for our family and our friends. It was perfect!
Thank you for all the kind words John! We look forward to welcoming your family back! Thank you! Gina
Food and service were terrific. We will be back!
This was our third visit to Michael’s and we continue to be impressed with the atmosphere and the quality of the food. This time, our Open Table reservation for 4 turned out to be a high top table in the bar area. This area was particularly noisy and the staff seemed overwhelmed with servicing the area. Our server was extremely kind and attentive, but the understaffing caused some issues with our order and the timing of our food arriving. Still love the restaurant, but will request a table outside of the bar area next time.
Always a great meal. Great value. Love it!
Again, as always, the staff goes above and beyond. Candles and ice cream as a surprise birthday treat.
Friendly and professional ...really love this restaurant.
Susan, Thank you for all your kind words!! Always a pleasure and we look forward to seeing you again soon! Thank You, Gina
It was our first time at Michael's and we were happy with the decision. The stone oven pizza was especially tasty and the appetizer salad was also very good. Great atmosphere and good service. This will likely be added to our restaurant rotation.
Really delicious dinner. Loved the shrimp toast! Staff was very friendly.
Took me over a year to finally visit a place right around the corner from my house. The food was very good and the service was excellent. But you have to love a place where their 60's jazz playlist sounds almost identical to my own `60s jazz playlist. Excellent vibe. Felt right at home!
Fresh and flavorful food, outstanding, very accommodating service, particularly because we were the people with the active 2 year old in the group. We will definitely be back.
We went for brunch on Sunday morning. There were hardly any tables full, yet our service was slow. My husband ordered an Eggs Benedict - the eggs should have been poached and they were practically hard-boiled. I ordered pancakes - I asked to skip the curd, but the pancakes were still supposed to come with butter, syrup and fresh strawberries. The pancakes came out and one of the two was burned on one side. No butter, no strawberries - just syrup. I had to ask for those to be brought out separately. The couple we were with ordered dishes that arrived with cold potatoes on the side (they were fried, and should have come out hot). This is the third time I have been here for a meal, and each time I am left wondering why I have decided to come back. We spent $50 on a meal that we would not order again.
Very good brunch
Two couples dined at Michael’s for the first time; all of us had heard mixed things, but we all agreed that our dinners were excellent in all respects. Two of us had the half chicken dish, which we both agreed was top notch. Service was good; decent drink offerings. We’ll be back.
wide variety of choices, great presentation. Great place to go with friends.
The Blue Cobia was wonderful and the lamb meatballs are excellent!
Food was fantastic and affordable. Loved the inside vibe of the restaurant
