Michaels Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Heard a lot about Michael's so we though ...
Heard a lot about Michael's so we thought we would give it a try. We visit Key West frequently and there are lots of great choices. First, let me start by saying that the meat loaf was exceptional. By far the best I've ever had anywhere. However, the service was unfriendly and our server seemed annoyed by her job. The food took a long time to arrive after the soup and salad. The French onion soup was average, and the Caesar salad was below average. The lettuce was not crisp, the croutons were as hard as rocks, and the dressing was just ok. The crabcakes were not even in the same ballpark as The Rooftop Café. Overall, you can do better for the price and I would give the overall experience an "OK."
I have to say this experience was disapp ...
I have to say this experience was disappointing. We've been here before and it was much better. The person who was taking care of us didn't seem to care either way, the salad that was "table size" was really only enough for two (at best) and the grilled octopus was very chewy and the mojitos weren't very tasty. On a positive note, the yellowtail snapper muniere was pretty good and the rum cake was delicious. It seems like they've lost their passion for creating a memorable experience for their customers.

Love the outdoor dining patio but the bugs bite my husbands ankles. They were quick to supply bug spray but I think they should spray more frequently. The food was good. My stacked Ceaser salad was covered with obviously store bought croutons. The dressing was bland but the white sardines laid on top where delicious.

We frequently visit Key West and Michael's had been previously recommended to us. We couldn't make it during a prior visit to Key West in June, but we were able to make it this trip. It was simply fantastic!!! 5- stars!!!
We now plan to include a trip to Michael's during each future visit.

Our first trip to key west and on our first night in town we had a hotel bar tender recommend this place. We took a chance and loved it. The food was spectacular and the service superb. What a gem in the middle of a cute neighborhood. We may never have found it if not for our bar tender, what a great way to start off our 10 year anniversary celebration. We come from a foodie town and are usually disappointed when we travel with the caliber of food, this place did not disappoint.

Great ambience with indoor or outdoor dining available. Unfortunately on he night of our visit, the indoor was reserved for a alrge aprty so the only available dining was oustide. outside in Key west in mid-Sepetmebr is NOT graet. Hould have been advised beforehand that only outdoor seatig was avaialble. But outside was beauiful. Food was great EXCEPT for their French Onnion soup was was so salty I could not eat it. i ahve high blood pressure and can tolerate most salty foods, but the French onio soup this paticular night (Monday, 9-19) was unedible for me. I odl the server but nothing was done or offered in exchange. The rest of the meal was garnd, and their signature stuffed veal Chop was amazing (highly recommended). Prices are good and fair. A great place to visit, just avoid the onion soup!

We were there in the "off season" so the restaurant wasn't crowded at all (only 1-2 other tables in the inside dining area were occupied, although there were several groups at the outside bar and patio. It therefore was quiet, though I don't know if that is the case when it is busier. Food was very good; wine a little pricey.

Food was average at best and over cooked. It's hard to screw up chicken but they did and the snapper didn't have any flavor. Definitely not worth the money. Won't recommend it....there are plenty of other great restaurants on the island.

What an awesome place , the food is always great and love that the menu changes with specials especially being local to Key West. Staff is always above average and friendly. Cocktails are wonderful and my husband enjoys the $2.00 PBR's there. Crazy guy that he is

We had dined at Michael's last year on our trip to Key West and had been VERY impressed by the food, the service and the whole restaurant, but stupidly we had not noted the name anywhere so it took us a little effort to find it again since it is a little off the beaten path. We wanted somewhere special for our final night of vacation and we were SO happy to find this great restaurant again. We'll be back every year!

The food was very good. Steak was excellent, I did order medium and I feel it came out more medium rare. I did not complain because the steak was very good, thick , juicy and tasty. However if you bill yourself as a steak place then the temperature should be closer to what is ordered. In addition the waiter did not inquire as to the steaks temperature even though I had questioned the ability of the kitchen in getting it right before I ordered.
The overall service was fine bordering on casual, but since we opted for an outdoor table it was probably as expected. Prices were at the high end of the scale but not totally over priced.
Overall a pleasant dining experience.
The food was excellent, but the waitress ...
The food was excellent, but the waitress had no personality at all. When your spending $150 a meal, you should not feel like your being rushed by, or bothering the waitress. I felt this when we walked in, and I should have asked for a new server instead of being uncomfortable.

One of the best all around dining experiences in Key West. Off the beaten path, Michaels offers white table cloths and excellent menu choices that pleased our entire group of 10. No one had a complaint! I had the snapper dish and loved it, but my friend shared a bite of her filet and I could easily say it was just as tasty. My husband normally gets a steak or fish dish, but uncharacteristically ordered the Mediterranean Chicken upon advice of our server and was not disappointed. Our server was knowledgeable and prompt. Will definitely go back with a group or even just a date night.
