Michael's on Naples Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
I've dined at Michael's on numerous occasions and always sit on the rooftop. It's such a nice atmosphere, very upbeat and happy. If you're looking for something quiet and cozy, this is not the place for you. But, if you're wanting fun, laughter, a great wine list and delicious food...Michael's is for you!
Once seated (after having our reservation validated downstairs) a woman approached and rather curtly asked if we had a reservation and under what name. She then checked my wife's response. Had we not had a reservation would we have been told to leave once seated?! RUDE! It took us almost an hour to finally receive our entrees. Too long! The food was good, but not worth the high price. Our birthday dinner was less than a gift, and since there are many good restaurants in Long Beach, we will try one of them the next time we go to dinner.
Michael's on Naples is a high quality dining experience which I enjoy immensely on special occasions. I do have one nit pick point . I am a vegetarian and always let the restaurant know before I arrive - plus we tell the waiter (just in case). Michael's always gives a chef "taster" item and the very first time I went they offered a vegetarian option. Every time since then they just provide the taster regardless of whether I can eat it or not. This is not a big deal since it is a taster and you don't pay for it, plus someone else I am with always eats it but it does strike me as odd that they don't say anything when they bring it to the table.
Also it would be nice to have a couple of more choices on the menu (clearly marked) for vegetarian dining. Please note - that the mushroom ravioli looks vegetarian but please check - they provided it without the glaze that would normally be drizzled over the top since that contained meat. (It was delicious without the glaze so perhaps that's the way they should serve it normally.)
Food is always wonderful but a bit spendy. Our waiter insisted on reading the ENTIRE menu to us which was nerve wracking and we think he messed up since it took well over an hour to get the food while folks that came in later were finished eating by the time our food was served. The waiter blamed it on the fact that the kitchen was busy preparing food for a party of 20. I doubt that because others were not affected. Since we frequent this restaurant, I will dismiss the waiter's behavior.
