This is the place to go if you want the best St. Augustine can offer in cosmopolitan dining. The menu has a great selection, but if you want an outstanding steak, this is the place to go. While at the patio table, we met Chef Michael who was tending to a roaster of 20oz, yes that's 20 ounce pork chops which was also offered on the menu. I had a Salmon Wellington which was delicious, but I did get a bite of steak from my friend and wow!!!!!!!! Caesar Salad is one of the best and their mashed potatoes are delicious. Highly recommend.

My wife and I had an absolutely wonderful dinner at Michael’s last night! We enjoyed every bit of the tasting menu with wine pairings and we are looking forward to our next visit. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and this was an absolutely wonderful place for it.

OUTSTANDING +1!
Went there on 4/11 for our anniversary dinner. Chef/owner Michael Lugo truly is an expert all the way around. We requested to meet him and as busy as he was, he made time for us. Recommend a yuca mofongo with a churrasco steak and Lord was that delicious (my wife’s plate). I had a salmon Wellington that was unreal! The crust was perfect. Between the crust and the salmon there was a seasoned lentils mash that blended very well.
Because I love risotto I had to order a side (plenty for two people). I am not sure where I fit all of that food but I swear there was no a grain left!
Appetizers: The Bon bons ( sweet plantains wrapped in bacon) were the perfect sweet/salty combination!
We were so excited about this date and so happy it turned out fantastic!
All of the staff was so great and what stood out was if we asked a question and that person couldn’t answer it, a subject matter expert was there with the answer. Our server, Chelsea, was so cool. Very funny and helpful and always respectful!
We will be back to St. Augustine for the 4th of July weekend and already are looking forward to our next meal at Michael’s!!!
P.S. If you like your wines, you WILL find one to satisfy your palate!

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.

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 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.
