    The bone marrow appetizer was my favorite. Beef Wellington was very good too. Tres Leches cake was also good but I scraped off the topping to make it better, IMO.

    I love Michael's. It's one of the better local restaurants and the food is very reliably tasty. We got the "Date Night" 30 Oz tomahawk ribeye with the bread, seared camembert and spicy shrimp appetizers. Food-wise, excellent. The camembert is a little drippy, and I would give it a lighter touch under the broiler. Their wine list is probably the best on the upper east coast of FL. Really high-end Bordeauxs, Cali cabs like Groth, etc. The ambiance is good, I'd say. Dark, nice paintings, and a lovely courtyard where you can dine al fresco. It's cozy and quaint in that St. Augustine way we all love. Now, to the service. Friendly enough, and helpful. But, honestly for $500 for a couple, I expect better. The waitress lacked that special something you want at those prices. Copious arm tattoos, early 20's, nose piercings, a cheap baby-dolly dress that came up above the knees, and just seemed... a bit checked-out. I know good service is like finding Eldorado in these post-Covid times, but I expect better. The kicker for me was she opened our $90 Groth half-bottle by sticking it in her bare armpit. Yuck. Michael, we love ya, but you've got to up your service game. Oh, and buy nicer furniture. Sincerely, a fan.

    First time at Michael’s. A highly anticipated experience that disappointed. The highs were the beet salad and Caesar salads, the pork chop, the beef filet and shrimp entrees. The lows were the beef tartare appetizer and the swordfish entree. The beef tartare was an unusual presentation on a slit marrow bone that really added nothing to the flavor. The tartare was combined with other ingredients that made it a gooey mess. The flavor of the beef was disguised by the other ingredients. The swordfish entree was cooked perfectly but the taste was overpowered by a spice coating which was overly salty. We were seated in the small back room. We walked through a utility area to get there. We had an early 5:30 dinner reservation and hoped for a table in the beautifully appointed main dining room but it wasn’t offered. The pricing is on the high side.

    We were fortunate enough to try the Chef's tasting. It was amazing from start to finish. Our server Maggie was awesome and the entire evening from start to finish was worth the money and the 3 hours that the tasting takes. From the moment we got there the hostess was friendly and accommodating all the way to the end meeting the Chef. Highly recommend it to anyone who wishes a unique dining experience.

    Enjoyed our experience. Our entrees met expectations. We felt the NYC pricing was a bit out of line especially for the sides and apps. Love the wine list but the wines by the glass pricing is a bit high too. Overall great service and a fine experience diminished only slightly by the sticker shock. We would return for sure.

    We booked Michael’s for the steak and wine and were not disappointed. We enjoyed the bread service with the most savory butter ever, as well as a fantastic Caesar salad. My filet was perfect and I added the mushroom truffle butter topper. My dining companion has a dry aged strip loin that was amazing. The wine menu had a lot of high priced bottles but some reasonably priced gems as well.

    Service was exceptional. Kelly was wonderful, perfect suggestions, checked on us frequently, but without interruptions. We got a visit from the GM making sure everything was perfect, and several other servers were available, taking away a dirty dish or bringing out a dish when it was ready. The ambiance is perfect for a quiet intimate meal. Food was cooked perfectly, and had delicious seasonal offerings.

    Michael’s never disappoints. We dined on a Wednesday when they have a prefix $200 date night special of bread plate, two apps, seasonal vegetables with a 32oz tomahawk ribeye. Oh, and it includes choice of dessert. Our server, Drew, had a great grasp of the entree preparations and wine list. A top notch experience in every way. We’ll be back!

    Michael's St. Augustine is a must when visiting historic downtown or if you are just into fine dining. The service and food presentation was impeccable. The food was wonderful. My wife and I are big fans of Chef Michael's restaurants (Michael's & Pesca). We can't wait to try his new restaurant la Nouvelle (Italian).
