We love Michaels; only wish we lived closer! A few times a year, we take a ride into Brooklyn, enjoy the day and have a great meal with super service.
So glad the pandemic is behind us and they have returned. Don’t forget to go to their bakery next door!

Dinner at Michael’s is a very unique and beautiful experience. From the moment you walk in, you get a sense that you’ve gone back in time to a place where old world hospitality and grace once again exist. The staff is on top of every detail, and the food is beautifully presented, perfectly cooked and delicious. Michaels will always be my top choice for special occasions and family celebrations.

Michael’s of Brooklyn was a delight. It was like stepping into a more gracious time of beautiful dining and professional waiters. Absolutely fantastic food. The scallops wrapped in bacon just amazing and the chocolate chip cookie dessert almost TOO delicious.
We had a terrific experience.
Also: a parking lot!!!

Our dining experience here was nothing short of wonderful. From the live piano to the perfect service, it was the perfect peaceful conclusion to a hectic day. Jack was attentive and his coworkers was on top of things. Everything on the table was delicious. You can go wrong choosing any dish. Definitely will be a reoccurring patron!

We were so pleased with our meal and our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. The couple we ate with said this will be their ‘go to’ restaurant from now on.
We hadn't gone to Michaels in years as we thought it was too pricey and not worth it. We have been proved wrong!

Great Food and great service. The digital menu will take some getting used too, but who was able to read the old one ? The Bronzino was sensational !

I had a big birthday this year and was not looking forward to it due to COVID. My family took me to dinner at Michael's and the experience could not have been better!! I was disappointed at the thought of having a birthday dinner in a parking lot, but once we arrived, I forgot where we were. The transformed the lot with flowers and tables with umbrellas over them and the ambience was absolutely lovely!! The food was outstanding, as usual; our waiter could not have been nicer or more helpful, even asking if we wanted pictures taken of our entire party. I've been out to 3 restaurants in the area during COVID and the experience at Michael's was the nicest by far!!

It was great! However, we ended up getting artichokes instead of our zucchini flowers. I make them at home and I love trying new ones when we go out. But the artichokes were yummy!! Definitely will be back.
