Good food, great waiter. Was disappointed to discover happy hour is not honored on Friday evenings. The fried green tomatoes were great, as was the salad. The lamb chops were great, and the desserts were fantastic

The feel inside Michaels is intimate and upscale. The drinks and selection of wine are great. The food, on the other hand, was certainly somewhat underwhelming. We tried several appetizers, which are great concepts (fried green tomatoes, black eyed pea hummus, etc) but lack flavor....More

I've eaten at Michael's several times and have never been disappointed. I could live on their salads of lettuce, chopped red onion, cucumber, raisins and grape tomatoes. Don't leave without trying the Bread Pudding.

Hip looking restaurant w good feel. Food was okay but we feel a bit overpriced. Menu needs to be reconsidered to include a tasty flat iron steak, kabobs, etc. to make it more affordable. Great bar and good service!More

Business casual. It is a nice restaurant but is attached to The Loft, a contemporary hotel so people coming and going are casual. Evening would be more up scale casual I would think.
