Off the beaten path in residential KW (parking can be a problem), this place is very pleasing. Also very busy (reservations a must). White table cloth service - more upscale than most KW places. Staff is very friendly/not stuffy at all. Entrees are consistent and very filling. Wine list is nice but can be pricey.

My wife and I love chef owned restaurants, especially the ones where the chef / owner comes out from the kitchen and talks to his patrons. Michael did that. But more than that, he made us feel like we were in his home. Like a true host, he wanted to know something about us, just as much as he was... More

This was our third visit to Michael's. Each time we have found the service to be pretty good, and the food has been o.k. Tonight's visit was a bit of an exception - the food was OK for the most part with the glaring exception of the disaster that was known as rice pilaf. It was so poorly executed I... More

Michaels is a hidden gem in Key West. The food was delicious and cooked to order. Drinks were very generous. Staff is very in tune with customer needs. Atmosphere is very homey and peaceful. Conversation friendly.

Second time to Michaels. My wife LOVED her smoke chicken penne - so this is a big recommendation. I had the snapper special which was fresh and delicious. For dessert we had the Key Lime Pie and Chocolate Brownie with Homemade Chocolate Chip. The server was kind of wonky. She was delightful but kept calling us "guys" over and over... More

Five friends ate at this restaurant and all had excellent meals, both fish and steak dishes.Staff was friendly. Definitely go with reservation. Fine dining, but caters to locals. Rear dining area small and quiet. Niche to get a great meal away from most of the tourist crowd
