Good food. Very noisy on upstairs patio. Server was very gracious and friendly, but the food came out very slowly. Waited almost 30 minutes for appetizers.

I always enjoy my time here as its a nice vibe but I've never been impressed by the service. Particularly at a busy Sunday brunch. Server was not attentive and disappeared for long periods at a time. Sausage and peppers were pretty good but not over the top amazing. Love the idea of a dj but got pretty loud.

Outstanding wait-staff and wonderful cocktails and food makes Michael’s one of the best restaurants in the LA area. The mussels and octopus were perfectly cooked and exquisitely presented. The spinach salad and crab salad were wonderfully fresh and prepared our palate for our mains. My husband had the spaghetti with lobster- pasta perfectly cooked and the lobster so tender. I had the homemade tortellini alla panna- one of the best pasta dishes I have had in a long time (it’s an often overlooked dish)
The highlight was Rory’s wonderful pairings of wine from Italy.
We have long since moved away from Long Beach but we keep returning to “our” restaurant several times a year

Lovely Italian restaurant with excellent pasta. We had a delightful dinner with lobster risotto and mezzaluna duck filled pasta for entrees. We loved the chocolate pomegranate cake for dessert. Fine service and an excellent meal overall.

we had a gift card for $100.00 to dine at Michael's. We arrived at 5:15 for a 5:30 reservation and the hostess had us wait until 5:30 to sit down which we thought was rather odd as the restaurant was empty. Once seated we were approached by the hostess-manager- not sure her title but she is very knowing and helpful with respect to the menu etc. We each chose a pasta dish and were then brought water, bread and dipping oil/vinegar. The bread was warm and very good. The pastas were very delicious. I also ordered a lemon drop martini and we both ended our meal with cappuccino. Overall this was a very nice experience. All was good.

Not amazing or worth the price. Service was extremely slow and both tasting menus aren't even remotely impressive. Drinks were expensive and not good. Maybe I'm spoiled with random NYC restaurants but I won't be back.

My husband and I have eaten at Michael's a few times, and they never disappoint. Their food and wine selection is incredible and their staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. They offer amazing tastings (Chef Tasting and Pasta Tasting) that are so worth the price (around $100 per person with wine included). They will always have our business!

Love this place. A winner every time. Adam and Christian are great and friendly Bartenders. And our server Melody was amazing amazing amazing.

Food and drinks all good!

Came here after a very disappointing dinner at Chianina steak house. They have the same owners and I am sad about that. I have been to Michael many times so wanted to try Chianina for this special occasion. I should have stuck to Michaels! But Melody was able to make our birthdays very special by just being a nice person and making good recommendations for us. Thank you Melody! I will be back.

Our meal was a special dinner for a very dear friend of mines birthday, and it was really perfect. The food was fabulous without being pretentious.
The only thing I was that in the front dining room, the lights could have been a bit dimmer. Our server was impeccable in service and recommendations. Very lovely evening. This was our first visit to Michaels and will without a doubt be returning soon.

We had another great evening at Michael's. Our food was excellent and our server Rory was wonderful. We've been to Michael's on a number of occasions and Rory took the time to check out our past history in the computer and knew the wine we liked and the appetizers we favored. He is always good at sharing information about the food and wine at the restaurant. He is an excellent waiter and a great person. We really enjoy having him as a waiter.

Michael's on Naples is a fantastic restaurant! One of the best meals I have had in quite some time. Not only is the food great, the wine list is one of the best in Southern California. Highly recommend the Grilled Octopus.
