We had an amazing time. The food was absolutely delicious. After we ate all we thought about was how we wanted to order it all over again.
Only critique is the outside dining could be better. More lights to keep up with the other beautiful outdoor dining areas. And we were a little ignored because we were outside.

The blue cheese stuffed Date was amazing. I'm not a big fan of seafood but the seafood soup was wonderful. David's service was perfect... and all the different people that brought food or picked up dishes were friendly and respectful.

Michael's Tasting Room has an ambiance that is comforting, professional, and friendly. The Wait Staff is knowledgeable and extremely efficient, and considerate. Michaels has all the earmarks of a fine, upscale restaurant, without the snobbery found in so many. I am thoroughly impressed. Thanks to everyone at Michaels for giving my date and meI a very special evening together.

Chef Michael was great! He sat us at our table and checked in with us several times. The shrimp tapas were incredible and I highly recommend them. Everything else was really good, including a great wine list. The ambience was good, although it was a loud environment. Overall, it was a great experience for my lady's birthday celebration..

We chose Michael's Tasting Room for a special occasion to take another couple out in the Historic area of St. Augustine. It was a very comfortable dining experience. It had the right atmosphere from the moment we arrived. We had changed the time of our reservation and then arrived earlier than we planned. Everyone was kind to accommodate us. Chef Michael visited our table a few times checking on us. We appreciated the careful attention. Our dinners were all good. I especially like my swordfish with the vegetables. Our wine was a great choice with the flatbread appetizer. Our key lime pie desserts were tasty and perfect to share. We will definitely return here and remember our," After the Hurricane experience."

We tried out Michael's Tasting Room this past weekend as part of the Lincoln Date Night Experience. Everything was outstanding from start to finish and we will strongly recommend this restaurant to friends and family. The service was outstanding, food and ambience equally good and made for a fun evening with friends.

I went on a date with my husband here and the service was excellent. They were attentive without hovering, and the ambiance was perfect for a date. I only have one complaint, they didn't ask how we wanted our steaks cooked so when they brought them out they were a lot rarer than we usually have it. My husband normally gets rare, while I get medium rare. When the steaks came out they were SUPER rare. The steaks were still tasty and tender, but I wish they would have asked instead of assuming. Overall, though, I would definitely go back here- I just probably won't get steak next time.

We visited Michael's Tasting Room on Saturday evening, November 5th. We had never dined here before and were extremely pleased that we came for dinner. The food and service were excellent and the restaurant was a lovely choice for our special "date". We will definitely come again and have already recommended it to several friends. What a great find!!

My wife and I had a wonderful experience. The food and the wine pairing were fantastic. I didn't want the night to end. The steak was done to perfection. Cant wait to go back. My waiter's Name was Archie, what a great guy, very attentive. The owner Michael even stopped by our table to say hello. I have to say what a nice guy.

Extraordinary food, mopped up every last drip of sauce. Friendly service, slightly distracted, particularly for wine refills. One special note ,,,,,,, the wine pour seems slight, I'm sure the Cava pour was around 4 ounces. Other than that spectacular food.

Michael's Tasting Room was outstanding this past week and it is wonderful to see them up and running after the Hurricane. The food, the service and the wine are always outstanding and this visit was as good as always. It is a favorite of ours and never disappoints!

I love MIchael's Tasting Room. The tapas are always spectacular and this octopus did not disappoint. The meat was cooked perfectly and served with a great sauce. The scallops, as always, done just so; never overcooked, and plump, large and sweet. We also had the beef short ribs. Its comfort food at its finest. The waitress was very nice and made some wonderful suggestions for wine and dessert. The garden is a lovely place to dine, with tables being far enough apart, your neighbor doesn't have to listen to your conversation. I hosted my friends for a birthday and, as always, was very happy. One of St Augustine's nicest restaurants.

Our experience was awesome. Our server, Kristin, made our evening over-the-top. Attentive, great personality and knowledgeable about all the menu items. We ordered several small plates. Each one better than the next! Mushrooms are a must try. Also enjoyed the marinated manchego & figs.
