Michael's on Naples Ratings and Reviews
We've been to Michael's before and we have always be impressed. But this visit was not up to par. We ordered the Chef's tasting menu with wine paring, which we have ordered before but this time the kitchen was just off. The first two courses were just ok and the fish course was overdone, barely warm and somewhat under seasoned. Most dishes came out late so that we didn't have much wine left to pair with the food, twice we had to ask for a little more wine. When the main course came out on time (early?) the wine hadn't been served yet. All of this bad timing made it hard for our server to coordinate the wine paring.
Our server, Kimberly saved the night with her attentive service and good conversation.
We'll return to Michael's because every kitchen has an off night, it's just too bad it was on the night we visited.
From start to finish, the evening at Michael's on Naples was superb. The hostess was most friendly and needed no time to assist us; Our table was ready for us; the service for the entire evening was attentive but never pushy; the food was excellent; the wines and wine service was flawless. We could not have asked for more.
I/we highly recommend Michael's on Naples.
You are greeted like family or friends are, the warmth of the setting includes the professional, helpful and friendly service. I was celebrating a birthday, and was treated to 3 different types of wines and liquer that enhanced our appetizer and entrees. The timing was perfect, and when asked our server structured all courses of our meal to make for an incredible evening.
I've been to Michael's several times. Always excellent. This time, our server, Paul, was particularly excellent. We had a business meal; a lot to cover. The cadence of the service was exactly what we wanted. This restaurant is a terrific place to have dinner if some people are traveling from LA and others from OC. Is one reason I often have business dinners at Michael's. But, the food is excellent and more than reason enough to make a trip from either direction.
We had a horrible time at Michael's on Sunday night.
we ordered the Large T-Bone steak and no one told us it would take an extra 45 minutes for this steak.
When our dinner came, the steak was RAW on the inside and we had to send it back. We paid $160 for that steak.
Plus we had kids with us, and who wants to wait all that time to eat..l.
Pricy and the food was just ok, my husband ordered the whole fish and it was tasteless, if you want to eat here better order pizza or spaghetti..
I also ordered fish with olives tamponade and it feels I’m chewing my food with sand, I asked our waitress and she said that’s how it should be,I felt that my food was not washed before cooking.
$21 for just a simple glass of wine.
The wait for our food was too long..
I’m not coming back to this restaurant not worth the prize, there’s a lot if restaurant around with good food and very reasonable prize..
Excellent service, delish antipasto, good wine list and corkage ($25/Bottle) available. Full bar plenty of entrees to choose from traditional to standards. Try Michael's as a local favorite with authentic Italian cuisine in beautiful Naples. Tasting menu looked interesting but too much food.
Great location. My first time there. I had preselected what I wanted off the menu on the website to only find out none of it is on the menu. It felt like a bittersweet bait and switch. What we did have was ok but not a 'memorable ' meal. The squash and burratta appetizer was flavorless and disappointing. The gnocchi was ok but over cooked so it was gummy. The salad and dessert were good. For a $200 meal for 2 people I was underwhelmed and know of better Italian restaurants in the area.
Excellent time. We were a larger group celebrating 2 birthdays. The entire staff was very welcoming. We were taken care of with kid gloves from the time we sat at the bar for pre-dinner cocktails until we were seated for dinner. Our waiter Manuel was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. And-- the food was phenomenal!
We decided to try the "Tasting Menu" since I love them and haven't seen them outside Las Vegas. We got the Pasta Tasting and the Meats Tasting and shared both. This gave us 10 different AMAZING plates to share. The entire experience was incredible. The server admitted that he was a trainee but was fantastic, answering our questions and sharing anecdotes. Each plate that arrived was incredibly tasty from Octopus to Lobster to Duck, homemade Pasta etc etc. When we voiced our enthusiasm at the end of the meal, the CHEF came out and spoke with us for awhile. I have never had this happen and was overwhelmed by the personal service almost as much as the incredible bites. One of my best culinary experiences EVER! Props to Michael's. We will be back since being told the tasting menu changes regularly.
We all ordered the pasta-tasting menu, which was five courses, plus I had the wine pairing. Everything was delicious, and the wines were perfectly matched. We also received friendly and attentive service. This was my third visit, and it's becoming one of my favorites.
