Michael's Tasting Room Ratings and Reviews
This dining experience was such a pleasure. Everything from the lighting, soft but not too dark, to the service, perfectly attentive, listened to our needs and responded appropriately, to the food that was executed perfectly, my date and I had a wonderful experience. We would highly recommend and will return.
We were aware of a limited menu for the occasion however the portions were meager.
Crab Louie had 3 nickel size pieces of crab. Fried oysters were sold out only 2 hours after opening.
Waiter Ethan was very friendly and apologetic he was 5 star.
Our date night at Michael's Tasting Room was excellent. This was our first time there. The food was not only very good (husband had short ribs and I had scallops), but beautifully presented. Every course was better than the last and the service could not have been better. We will definitely be going back and bringing friends!
Food was wonderful. Service also was excellent. Wine list was excellent. Highly recommended, with only one issue to note they could improve. We had table in outside courtyard, selected because we wanted/needed fresh air (inside had a lot of candles burning, chemically scented ones, which is why we chose to be outside). But, outside, there were two kitchen exhausts, one w smoke and one w propane burn exhaust, right next to the outside courtyard tables. Other than air quality, highly recommended.
I was joined by my wife and 2 guests. Personally, my meal was wonderful. I had the octopus appetizer followed by the swordfish entrée. The octopus was the best I have eaten in St. Augustine (where I live). The swordfish was very tasty/very good. Our 2 guests had the following complaints: the polenta was dry, tasteless, and was thought to have been previously frozen (I also agreed with this assessment). The scallop appetizer was very good but not a good value - only one scallop that was sliced in half for $10. The shrimp appetizer was good but floating in too much oil. The dessert (goat cheesecake) was very good but overly rich. My wife and I have eaten at the Tasting Room many times in the past, and will return in the future (especially for the octopus). Our guests said they also would return as their complaints were minor.
It was our first time here but
I can not recommend this place enough.
The food was unbelievably good.
Our server (Rachel) was amazing and made sure we were satisfied with everything. And we were.
My wife and I couldn't stop talking about this place on the way home and sill talked about it even before bed.
Two thumbs up for this place.
The food was delicious! Went there with two of my friends and loved it. We had some great wine with tapas and that alone was enough for us. It was a low key environment but not so quiet that you had to whisper. The service was also excellent. I'd highly recommend.
Our waitresses name was Taylor and she was totally awesome from beginning to end very polite very own time with the food understood my husband situations not being well at the table bring us kind courteous service like her alot would ask for her if I came back
This was a Bozard Lincoln Date Night. I had never heard of this place before. What a find! Thank you Bozard! The food was fantastic. Different. Flavorful. Creative. Down right delicious. The sword fish was tender and moist all the way through. Perfect wine paring and amazing firm cream brûlée! And when you go ask for Taylor. She was so attentive and a very pleasant person to spend the evening with.
We got the tapas which for a Spanish inspired restaurant, weren't very heavily influenced by Hispanic flavors or menu items at all. Tapas are also typically meant to be shared among many people so the servings are supposed to be larger than an app but these were like half the size of a normal appetizer and yet still extremely expensive for the 2 bites you got.
Also our waitress was HORRIBLE. We maybe saw her three times, she forgot to bring us bread multiple times, she would disappear for long stretches of time when we were looking for her. For the price we paid, we expected so much more from the experience.
We noticed there wasn't someone at the front desk as people came in. All different waiters were going up and one they kept getting as he was clearing tables. People were waiting a long time without being greeted or acknowledged, to parties left without someone even speaking to them. We love Michaels and had catering done during the holidays, just wanted to let someone know.
Dinner with 4 foodie friends. Attentive and friendly service. Nice ambience in private room. We shared many assorted tapas. All of good quality. Especially loved the scallop tapas and the goat cheese terrine. Argentina Merlot very good. Wonderful evening! Highly recommend.
