Spanish inspired restaurant with an excellent wine list. Not being real familiar with Spanish wines we give them a description of what we want and price and they nail every time. Try the shrimp tapas, they're fantastic! This place is a staple in our go to fine dinning list of places for date night!!!

These are undoubtedly the best tapas I have ever had! I have tried a few places in Los Angeles like Tintos Tapas and even the great Xixon in Miami with its impressive aray of unique tapas and I still am still sure that The Tasting Room serves truly superior tapas! When you walk in you are greeted with the sight... More

Michael's Tasting Room is in the heart of the old city. The dining room is historical meets modern decor. The food is exceptional. The braised short ribs are outstanding. Exceptional wine list to accent the food. The only thing that exceeded the food was the service provided by Archie. Great find!!!

My wife and I couldn't stop talking about our experience on the way home and still talked about it even before bed. Two thumbs up for... More

Michael’s Tasting Room truly lives up to the claim of Chef/owner Michael Lugo: Fresh, Local, Seasonal. This serene, charming business casual site is a real dining gem. We thoroughly enjoyed our great evening of small plates in the heart of St. Augustine. To go along with such tapas fare as charred octopus with artichokes, Mediterranean antipasto board, sherry sautéed button... More

Each dish is carefully prepared with fine ingredients and excellent. I had a carefully prepared Caesar for starters with fresh parmesan and spanish anchovies, for entree the rack of lamb with...

My wife is a Classically-trained French Chef, so dining with her is always an experience. We tried Michaels and had a great experience. We sat in the courtyard and had a wonderful time. I had the pork belly and she had something...rather looked like piaya. The taste was great, but the oil at the bottom of the serving dish was... More

We had dinner on a Wednesday evening, fairly early (6:30). The restaurant was not crowded, which is unusual. Our waiter was very helpful and personable. The selection and creativity on the menu was excellent. The negative was that although my rack of lamb was truly excellent, the vegetables were horribly over salted. My dinner companion also mentioned that the risotto... More
