“Slightly inexperienced service but excellent food from start to finish.”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

Four of us went to Michael's Grill last night and had a wonderful meal. We went early and on a Tuesday night, so no one was in the bar when we arrived. Our server ended up making our drinks, which was fine except for the martini--not well made. Granted, my Dad is particular about his 'Martins'. I didn't have a great feeling after that, but once the food was served, it completely wiped out any small complaints. From the bread, to the fresh salads to all four entrees being served at the same time by all servers (impressive) and PIPING hot from the oven--delicious. All four of us shared each other's food/sauces and couldn't even decide whose dish was the best--unprecedented. We ended up ordering dessert, which also blew us away. (toffee bread pudding) We are excited to try Michael's again on the weekend. Our server gave good recommendations, but just wasn't over-to-top experienced. Yet we all plan to go back, so no disasters. Will update with another review.

“Not what you'd expect in a strip mall restaurant!”
Reviewed 7 October 2011

I have been to this restaurant many times, and I am never disappointed. It is located in the back section of a strip mall on Dale Mabry but worth looking for. The breakfasts are fresh and wonderful. The dinner's are diversified and the atmosphere is romantic and relaxing. You can dine outside also.

“Beyond the ordinary!”
Reviewed 24 August 2011

Take it from the culinary experts, Michael's Grill in Carrollwood is beyond the ordinary. With Chef Michael on the gille and Andrea creating fantastic deserts and pouring great wine, it truly is an experience of a lifetime. Their Sunday brunch is outstanding.

“Michael's is our new #1”
Reviewed 7 June 2011

My wife frequent Michael's for all of our special occasions. We have introduced Michael's to many of our friends and everyone loves it. The staff knows us and the owner and his wife always come out and say hello to us. The food is great and we have tried numerous items from the menu and also the specials, never a bad meal.
