Visited St Michaels alley twice once a business meal, second time a foursome. The food is always very good. Perhaps they could be a little more adventurous, but that said no complaints.

Our group of 23 was accommodated in a comfortable private room. The prepared menus offer all something they enjoyed. The dishes were all flavourful and unique. The staff was fast and attentive.

Well executed dishes, and as a European visitor, the menu offers some options exploring previously un-encountered combination of ingredients. Good atmosphere and service. Worth the trip.

Lunch was excellent. Beet and asparagus salad delicious. Sea bass entree light and tasty. Peach bread pudding a real treat. We ate in the dining room for the air conditioning. Patio is cute too. Not a place for a quick lunch. Leisurely pace.

Went for an early dinner. Even though the restaurant was bought out for a private event we were encouraged to come and sit in the bar area. Turned out to be perfect. Quiet, intimate seating. Casual elegance. Perfect service (I rarely say that). The food...More

We had a great evening here - super food, great atmosphere and first-class service. I had the skirt steak which was superb. Highly recommended - and great selection of cocktails too!
