“Best food I have ever had in a Restaurant or home!”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

This restaurant food was the best I have ever had and I have eaten out a lot! I had the New York Strip Steak with mashed potatoes, green beens and carrots. AWESOME!!! The house salad with the house dressing was spectacular! My partner had the hogfish and that was out of this world GREAT!

“Excellant”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

When we first stopped in to make a reservation for the following night I was a bit put out by the women we spoke to.all things went well the next night.The admiral cut prime rib was done to perfection with vegetables and mashed potatoes . My partner had the seafood pasta which she thought was way too heavy on the creme sauce.Excellent service by Sean and the waitstaff
The menu changes slightly every few weeks.Overall a great evening

“Intimate and romantic”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

Great location in walking distance to restaurants and galleries. Only about six tables and a small bar area indoors creating a very intimate eating experience. Patio seating outdoors. Very fresh fish and ingredients, a little overloaded with very rich sauces and extras. Nice wine selection by the glass. Expensive

“Excellent Dinner, Hook & Cook”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

Went to Chef Michael's on the recommendation of friends and because we loved his food at a previous resturant. We went in to the beautiful dining room, with our fresh caught Cobia & Vermillion (?) Snapper. It was prepared 6 ways, 2 Appetizers & 4 Entrees. And bar none the best Hook & Cook we have ever had. In addition we ordered a Ravioli special, Pear, Walnut & Gorganzola salad and the Prime Rib soup, all were wonderful with soup being the stand out! With 2 bottles of wine , a couple of beers, 2 desserts and all that food the check was VERY reasonable! And I forgot to mention the generous portions!! Thank you Chef Michael & your wonderful, attentive & informed staff We WILL be back!
