Beautiful place to dine.
Love this place. I was at Michael's both lunch and dinner, it was most memorable experience I ever had. Food was outstanding, great wine selections and service was awesome!!! Oh yeah, My family loved the Christmas tree.
Most OVERPRICED in the area.
This place caters to old, business types for breakfast. I waited a long time for a table and paid $24 for two srambled eggs. I waited about 10 minutes more for orange juice and by the time my toast arrived it was cold. Breakfast at $42 cost me more than some dinners... and unlike this experience, those dinners were good. Pass on Michaels... unless you have time to waste and you're using an expense account.
I was here for Valentine's Day-'04 and '05.
We were seated promptly, had excellent service, there were 2 roses on everyone's table to take home. I had the black cod and it was so delicious. We split a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake. The wines by the glass are wonderful. I wish I had enough money to eat here all the time, not just once a year!
Manhattan media's favorite power-lunch spot.. The Scene Barely a day goes by without some mention in the gossip columns of what one media figure said to another over lunch at Michael's. If you're the kind of person who knows what Michael Wolff looks like, you'll enjoy the people-watching. For everyone else, the airy, light-filled room--which looks onto a private garden at the back--makes for more than pleasant scenery.
The Food The Californian cuisine can be as high-flying as the price points: The seared hamachi with corn fritters, creme fraiche and salmon roe offers an enjoyable mix of textures, and giant slabs of burrata cheese melt pleasingly into yellow tomatoes and baby opal basil. There's also beef carpaccio, 28-day dry-aged prime New York steak, and panko- and nori-crusted ahi tuna rolls.
