Michael's Tasting Room Ratings and Reviews
We loved dining here. Excellent wine list, great menu choices and excellent service. Our waitress was Audrey and she was friendly and professional and recommended a wonderful Spanish wine choice. My husband loved the salmon and I ordered the MTR burger which was incredible. For dessert we enjoyed key lime pie . We will most definitely return soon.
St Augustine has numeros restaurants and several really fine dining establishments. All four of us agreed that all of our meals were excellent, best in current memory. Michael’s has gone to top of our list, can’t wait to share with our ever stream of visitors.
We specified on our reservation that we were just engaged today and were out to celebrate- this was never recognized by any staff. Food was excellent but service (David) was uninviting - we were greeted without an introduction, only what the kitchen was sold out of on the menu. Our waiter rarely came back to check on us after our initial order was placed and we never received bread . Overall this was not the experience we were expecting for the price or the occasion
This is my fourth visit to Michael's and I look forward to my next! The service is always on point. They are very knowledgeable of all items offered, food & beverages and will always have a personal recommendation if you ask! No matter what you "like" to eat, there is definitely something on this menu that will leave you walking out satisfied and making an excuse to come back! My favorite entree is the short rib but literally everything on the menu is worth a taste!
My husband and I along with two friends had such a wonderful dining experience at Michael's Tasting Room! We were greeted by our waiter with a glass of champagne and a description of the menu. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly and delivered exceptional service throughout our entire evening. My husband ordered the Beef Short Rib, which also included seasonal vegetables and a deep, brown sauce...he ate every bite! I ordered the 12oz. Bone-in Pork Chop, which also came with seasonal vegetables and was absolutely delicious! To my husband's delight, I shared several bites of my pork chop with him! We ordered the brownie for dessert and it was as you would expect, smooth, rich and moist (a little bit goes a long way). The wine list is very extensive and the Margarett's Cabernet we ordered was a perfect complement to our meal. Thank you for a very memorable evening! We will definitely be back!
Just a perfect dining experience. Our first time at Michael's Tasting Room, we had a number of tapas and several glasses of wine. The atmosphere is quiet and sophisticated, with Old World Spanish building and modern decor combined. The tapas variety was excellent, and the menu of extremely high quality. The goat cheese-arugula-wild mushroom appetizer was amazing, the caesar salad one of the best we've ever had -- a real anchovy, not the little dried kind.
Service wonderful. Wine selection very good. The only surprise was that the menu is more about tastings -- wines are more by the bottle. They could use a better selection of wines by the glass but it was very good and sufficient.
Very nice evening! The service was attentive and timely... we had enough time between courses to talk and enjoy the atmosphere. The food was very tasty and the wine selection was varied. We prefer California Sonoma County wines and we were not disappointed. Overall an excellent choice.
We had heard and read about Michael's Tasting Room, but, for various reasons, had never dined there. Most of the reviews on the different sites sounded very positive and promising. Our table of four ordered from all over the menu, including one special. We had very mixed reviews. The Spanish Caesar salad was very bland; the dressing had little or no flavor. The sautéd button mushrooms were very good; buttery, with lots of garlic and sherry. The lobster roll was exceptionally good; loaded with fresh lobster, a very nice roll and a light, tasty dressing to hold it together. This was the highlight of the meal. One diner ordered that night's special: lobster gnocchi. It was priced at $28 and was a total disappointment! Overpriced and absolutely no taste! Two other diners ordered the short ribs and the hamburger. Neither was anything to write home about!! On a very positive note, the actual dining room was very pleasant and our server was an absolute jewel!! It was a night that we don't regret; but, we all agreed that the food fell way short of our expectations.
Fantastic meal, the service was excellent and the wine was great. The menu all looked fantastic but we ordered the lamb tapas as an appetizer (which was gorgeous!) and then the chicken was stunning and the steak was perfect. It was my birthday and they brought us desert, the espresso chocolate cakes were to die for. 10/10 would go there again!
We have been to The Tasting Room before on various trips to St. Augustine. We came upon it accidentally around the time it first opened and it has become a "must do" when we are in the area. We always have tapas which we did this time. The croquettes in particular were heavenly. The only struggle is to find parking in downtown St. Augustine but the effort is well worth it!
Enjoyed every aspect! Our server (I believe his name was Artie) was great! We couldn't decide on a bottle of wine so I told him some that I enjoyed and he picked us out the perfect bottle! We mainly did apps but everything we had was amazing! I loved the mushroom bruschetta and cheese board!!! Thanks for a great night!
Arrived early for reservation and we were seated right away in the private dining area of the restaurant. Service was excellent; waiter was very attentive and kept us apprised of the status of our order. We ordered several tapas: tuna, blistered shoshito peppers, papas bravas, and the Mediterranean board. Each was served at the optimum temperature and as they were prepared, which allowed for leisurely dining. All of the tapas were delicious. Would highly recommend.
