We were celebrating my grandson's 29th birthday. The food and the ambiance were great, the service was also very good.

My wife and I are from Texas and whenever we visit the Long Beach area, we always try to have dinner at Michael’s on Naples. The Mezzaluna pasta is one of our favorites. Waitstaff is friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

Amazing place I visit any time I am in the area. Leave some extra time to walk on the canals. Be sure to sit upstairs on the covered deck.

I’m so bummed... a friend and I decided last minute to get a bite after working out. Checked open table and you guys had availability so we decided to go to the rooftop for brunch... having Michael join Olympix mad me think of Micheal’s... the hostess was like non-existence... physically there but mentally floating somewhere in her own universe...!!! The place was sadly empty too... we choose to sit at the bar, John was GREAT!!!, the food took forever odd cause it’s literally empty- run the receipts to know the table and turn count... the tackiest part was when the clueless hostess “cancels” my reservation on Opentable and I get an email from Opentable to say “the restaurant canceled me” literally while I’m ordering a mimosas and looking at the menu... not use why?!?!? If it wasn’t for Opentable showing me availability at the time I wouldn’t have come in... I can’t believe you guys would cancel me while I’m sitting there ordering- what’s the purpose and reason.... are you THAT tacky to not pay Opentable for their service or try to give me a bad rating on Opentable...???

WTF...????

The food is always superb as well as the service. Being a cancer patient and having diet restrictions, they accommodated us throughout the whole meal. We love Michaels because it's the only Restaurant that we know of without blaring music. Ask for Tyler as your waiter, he has the best customer service and is very detailed. We really appreciated the time he took to get everything right for us. We don't live close, yet it well worth the extra drive. Enjoy!

DEFINITELY ENJOYED THE FOOD, STAFF, CABERNET WINES Definitely were great with the food. Only thing I would recommend that the food portions could have been bigger when you get the Chiefs 5 course meal. Convenient valet parking.

Service was very very slow. We had to ask hostess to get our waiter, had to ask for water at table, wine was not chilled, took 20 minutes before it was corked, waiter seemed very distracted, or he had too many tables. This was a Thursday evening at 7:30 pm. Food was absolutely outstanding !

I’m a big fan of an evening at Michaels. Starting at the bar, some of us enjoyed craft cocktails that included a proprietary Michaels’ Whistle Pig Rye Whiskey blend. The Barman recommended items that were well received.

The food was outstanding and the pacing of the meal was perfect. Our server knew the menu and we enjoyed each of his suggestions. We ate family style and the compliments were universal.

I hosted the evening and wanted my guests to enjoy our time together. Michaels was the perfect choice

Michael's is the best high end restaurant in Belmont Shore/Naples. The food is sublime, and the service is timely, well informed but never intrusive. I can heartily recommend the sausage and fennel appetizer. We had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday. I would actually accept another year if it includes dinner at Michael's.

I felt that their food while okay, was not on par with other Italian restaurants I have frequented. Service was lacking and we had to ask for things that we should not have had to ask for. We sat upstairs and that was a nice venue. Some of the food was tasty and some not so much. I will try it one more time to see if I have a better experience with both the food and the service.

Always a pleasure to dine at Michael’s of Naples, even if it is a nice brunch after church on Sunday! Love the Upstairs Patio in summer & daytime! Great assortments for breakfast! Maybe one more salad choice for lunch though!

I think charging 30 .00 for corkage is to much. We spent a lot on dinners and it’s not fair to charge that much. We have a nice collection of wine that we like to bring. We had a cocktail first so they should have waived the corkage. Won’t be returning because of that

We knew we would be seated upstairs in an enclosed patio area but unfortunately it rained, sending all the Happy Hour folks crowding around the upstairs bar area next to us. It was raucous and deafeningly noisy. My 80-yo mom was very agitated about it.
We all had the 5-course pasta tasting menu. Undeniably, the food was excellent but we all went to In-N-Out Burger afterwards. Portions were quite small, especially for the college kids.

Michaels's on Naples is an amazing place to eat, drink and relax. You have various options... join happy hour on the rooftop; eat on the rooftop or eat in the first floor.

The waitstaff is friendly and knowledgeable. Our waitress was also patient as we kept trying decide what we wanted.

We had pasta dishes during this dining experience.

I can't wait to go back to try antipasta and something from the Secondi Carne.
