Charming setting with an intimate and polished decor. Chose Michael's to celebrate husband's birthday and picked the Chefs selection along with wine pairings. Food is beautifully presented and well executed. Only drawback was that we felt rushed throughout the courses and I wish that would have been managed differently.

We chose the seven course tasting menu plus oysters.

The restaurant did not have basic accouterments such as horseradish and cocktail sauce. They also did not have sparkling water. The oysters were not properly shucked.

The steak tartare was mediocre, and not memorable. The triple berry salad was uninspired.

The gnocchi was sautéed well, but it was dense and under seasoned.

The scallop was the highlight. It was properly cooked, seasoned, and the cauliflower was a nice al dente.

The filet was above average, and cooked properly. However, the mash potatoes were bland, but the spinach was great.

The cheese plate was insignificant; with more cherries and almonds than Brie.

The dessert was bananas foster cake, and it was the second highlight behind the scallop.

We will not return, however, we must make note of the wonderful Sommelier, Natasia, because of her hospitality and extensive wine list.

OMG!!!! Don't miss an opportunity to dine this wonderful restaurant! Top notch service and food. Our server Mike recommended the Swordfish and the Veal Chop and it did not disappoint! Amazing wine list and ambience with very cool blue walls and paintings that capture the eye. A absolutely wonderful experience!!

Steak was tough and flavorless. Service empowered themselves to clear the table before we finished our meal. From entering to exiting the restaurant was 1hour 15 minutes, we did not hang around slowing up future reservations. Very negative atmosphere . If you want to flush your money down the toilet you will enjoy Michaels.

I was out to dinner with three girls friends for a girls weekend. We opted for the chefs choice 5-course menu and it was phenomenal. I have never enjoyed such a wonderful meal in NE FL. I highly recommend the restaurant and the chefs choice menu! A truly unbelievable dining experience. A must see when in NE FL.

The best and possibly only bone-in filet in town, rare, with mushrooms on the side. Perfection.

The food was reasonably well prepared but the service was cold to say the least. We dined here several times when it was a tapas bar and everything was excellent. The attitude of “oh god, customers that don’t want the 5 course tasting” will make sure we find other venues when we visit St. A.

The 1st time we went, a couple years ago, was excellent. We went back and again ordered the $270.00 ++ Chef’s choice 5 course wine paired dinner. The food was spot on. The service was not up to par. Before the chef had come out to tell us what he had made for us. This time we felt like we were left in the corner. Things like. They had 4 empty tables around us, our 2nd course came out from a food runner. But they had taken our silverware when they bussed the 1st course. We could not find anyone to get their attention. So we got up and pillaged silverware from another table. And nobody noticed.
And some other things also, but you get the point. At $300.00 dinner for 2 we felt underwhelmed..
I send a e-mail letter in, and got no response.

My Husband and I came here to celebrate our one year anniversary. We decided to park take in the tasting course- which we had never done one before. It was a great decision. The food was amazing and then learning about the wines and paring them with the food- deff worth it and to do this for a special occasion.

Amazing dinner. I had the Beef Wellington and the rest of the party had steaks- The meat is like butter. Our server was on point!! Definitely our go-to for special occasions and whenever we get a craving for a fine steak. Thank goodness we are locals now :). A+++ all the way.

The food lacked flavor. My husband and I ordered two appetizers and they both needed salt. I ordered a seafood dish that also lacked seasoning and was barely warm . This restaurant was highly recommended by a few people and we were really disappointed.

The food is just OK. The steaks were a bit too heavily salted. The whole concept and menu is in need of an update. The menu lacked creativity and the place just seems to be going through the motions and living on reputation.

The service was very good, which was a bright spot.

Be warned the food is very, very heavy on the garlic- The servers we had were great and the best part of the meal. I ordered the short ribs which had tons of garlic in the plantains- to the point of taking over the flavor of the meat- had to send it back. So many better choices in St. A
