Michaels Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

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.

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.

Hidden gem we wouldn't have known about had it not been for the recommendation from Mark at the Casa Marina. We wanted a special dinner to celebrate a birthday and this ended up being exactly the right spot - complete with a Chocolate Volcano with for dessert with a bonafide Roman candle spraying out the top! Quite a display.
Romantic and relaxing ambiance whether you sit outside by the fountain or indoors. Food was great and the service was fantastic - highly recommend.

Four of us flew to Key West for a few days and met for dinner at Michaels which was recommended by friends who live in Key West. We dined in the courtyard in July .. which
typically is humid for outdoor dining. The fans and lush landscaping created a comfortable
dining experience . We had dinner on Thursday evening around 7:00. Quiet atmosphere for mid week. We each had a different entree' and all were very good. Steak especially ! We had to request our waiter during dinner, a dessert menu and then our bill later. We will definitely go back to Michaels !

Very limited menu.
Went there to celebrate our anniversary. This place was recommended by one of the locals.
With it being a limited menu there are about 10 choices for your entree. They seated us, took our drink order, served our drinks and proceeded to tell us they were out of 6 of the 10 choices.
Waitress looked at us and treated us like we were stupid.
Would NOT suggest the restaurant to any visitors.

Very nice place. Food was not as expected really didn't care that my husband has a nut allergy . Filet mignon was very fatty I have never had a piece of filet that was fatty. Server didn't offer to take meal off the bill or offer anything else in place of the horrible piece of meat after we complained . Once the complaint was brought up to the server the servers attitude completely changed like he didn't want to deal with us anymore! We will never return back to the restaurant.

This place was the best restaurant we've visited in key west so far. The food is phenomenal and the wine list was great! We ended up having the salmon, a half order of meatloaf and a half order of the filet with roasted garlic and blue cheese. DIVINE!

Sooooo Delicious! Loved the ambiance we sat outside on the patio ( used to be a neighborhood home turned into a restaurant) very quaint but spacious. Contemporary style, nice size bar outside, too. Loved the added touch of the running fountain. Don't forget to throw a coin in for a wish! Can't wait to return on our next trip to key west :-)

This was our first time at Michaels. It was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. My husband ordered the salad special as his main dish and was a little shocked on how small it was. It was served in a martini glass. He was surprised however on how filling it was. The portion are small if you a a big eater. My family did not leave hungry. I would go back there. We had great service.

Still one of my very favorite restaurants. I take all my out of town company here and no one is ever disappointed. Love the small plates because I can order a great salad and not leave half my dinner behind! Fantastic staff takes really good care of us always. And it's all five blocks from my home. 😃

The food and service were excellent. We were celebrating a special birthday and brought in a couple of bottles of wine. We then bought a third bottle and asked if they could wave one of the corking fees. The manager came over and was very unfriendly refusing to do anything for us. We are staying in the area for a month and would have loved to return because the food was great but because of the way we were treated we will not be returning.
Everything was exceptional! Such a great night out
Inside or outside dining available. Great outside bar for drinks and appetizers. Will go back to try other dishes. Always a great fish dish and the filet al Forno is a must. My husband had that topped with fried oysters. Selection of appetizers, salads and desserts. Great wines, beer and mixed drinks. Desserts are great but order the volcano early so it comes out after dinner.
