Fine dining at its best is the extraordinary magic generated by the combination of service, food and atmosphere, and the experience tonight just proves the point. The restaurant itself is lovely; request an outside table if you can. The fountain is a perfectly mellow backdrop to the experience. The food is good--the fried oysters were fine; the meat loaf was... More

This restaurant is just as described by other reviewers. Out of the way, in a residential neighborhood. Nice setting and good menu. Food was great, it just us a long time to get it. Perhaps they had an off night in the kitchen? Dinner was delicious and I would go back, but just allow some extra time.

Party of four enjoyed the quaint atmosphere, varied and interesting menu choices but waited far too long for our entrees to be served. We were not in any hurry but we waited too long in between appetizers and dinner. No apologies for the delay and then our server never brought my husband the glass of wine he requested to have...

What a nice place to come in a beautiful neighbourhood for a relaxing dinner on the deck. Lovely bar, good service and such a relaxing time. Something off Duval that is classy and good. Loved the grilled octopus, but then that's my thing.

Start off with a Bloody Mary at the bar and then enjoy the great selections on the menu. We were a party of 4 and 3 of us had fish selections - all excellent. Our fourth had the stuffed Veal Chop - he is a true foodie and said it was the best he ever had - the secret seemed... More

Off the beaten path in residential KW (parking can be a problem), this place is very pleasing. Also very busy (reservations a must). White table cloth service - more upscale than most KW places. Staff is very friendly/not stuffy at all. Entrees are consistent and very filling. Wine list is nice but can be pricey.

My wife and I love chef owned restaurants, especially the ones where the chef / owner comes out from the kitchen and talks to his patrons. Michael did that. But more than that, he made us feel like we were in his home. Like a true host, he wanted to know something about us, just as much as he was... More

This was our third visit to Michael's. Each time we have found the service to be pretty good, and the food has been o.k. Tonight's visit was a bit of an exception - the food was OK for the most part with the glaring exception of the disaster that was known as rice pilaf. It was so poorly executed I... More
