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.

I would have liked the waiter to be more attentive needs they didn't make themselves too available request items.

Neighborhood staple still delivering a high quality product. So impressed with how incredibly fresh everything was from the crabmeat avocado salad, to the salmon with a mustard/ dill sauce, to the freshest and flavorful vegetables. Service was excellent. The outdoor space is lovely and glad to see them practicing appropriate heath precautions. Hope to get there again before the weather gets too cold.

We have eaten here previously and the food and service are always fantastic! The outdoor dining setup was great with more than enough distance between tables. Highly recommend!

Despite the Covid restrictions and the heat, our server, Jeff, made us as comfortable as possible outside with the huge fans they had set up, and the food and service were excellent! Can’t wait to eat there again the next time we’re in the area.

There is not a restaurant in Brooklyn to compare with Michael’s of Brookkyn. Michael’s stands out from all the rest. Best food in town.

Amazing food comes out in portions to last two days. Very old school service by a black-tie staff that’s also extremely friendly and relaxed. Nice welcoming space with a big parking lot out back. Prices totally reasonable. List of daily specials longer than the menu itself. Will definitely be back.

This is authentic Italian in Brooklyn. Not only is the food spectacular, you feel like you are in a movie. It’s the ultimate dining experience and my family and I had a blast. This is where they make the special “sauce”. So we went home with a few jars of sauce, some pasta, and even some desserts from their bakery next door. This is a must eat! And a highlight of our trip.

Now that we've experienced the situation, we will know how to order. It's a bit pricey. If it were a bit more moderate we would frequent the restaurant more often.

This was our second trip to Michaels. Everything was just as good as we had hoped. Going to Brooklyn is about a 2 hour drive for us, but we make a fun day out of it. It's worth every mile! The waiters are super nice and the stuffed artichoke was just like I remember from childhood. Baked clams, Lobster Fra Diavlo, super Chicken a la Michaels - couldn't have been any better. Topped off with a trip to the bakery next door and it was a fabulous day!
