Have been at this restaurant several times already and received good and very solid service and quality of food every time over the years now. Location is good and all over a nice experience.

First of all there is no better ambience in any restaurant around Santa Monica than in this restaurant. Outdoors with a light shade for a ceiling , the main space is filled with lots of beautiful plants and the way the tables are placed around...More
Michaels has been around forever with various ups and downs. Mixed buzz on the place with a new chef. We've been before but decided finally tried it...Something is missing. Small plates from a new chef. Marginally creative food. Over-priced. Disappointing--- Something us missing. It's fairly...More
