My husband and son shared a T-bone steak which was cooked to perfection by Chef John. Our waiter John was funny and delightful. And informative. We sat at the bar first for a drink and the... More

Now,it has become one of the most expensive restaurants in Brooklyn. On our last visit with friends, John our waiter, who knows us by name, forgot to place two orders, they came... More

The food was out of this world. The calamari was crispy and not soggy. The chicken parm was also crispy and excellent. I loved the cheese and meets they served for New Year's Eve dinner, I don't think that is a regular thing, but I have to go back and check. The inside is deff a old school Italian design...... More

The best Italian restaurant in the tri-state area. I highly recommend Michael's of Brooklyn to anyone looking for a top quality Italian meal.

The food and service are outstanding. Bartenders are excellent. The wine cellar is to die for. My #1 "go to" when I want the best.

We celebrated my mother's 90th birthday at Michael's with a luncheon for 24 people. It was as perfect as could be. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, the setting was lovely. There was not one thing I would have done differently.

From the moment I walked in to the wonderfully wood themed restaurant I felt like I was in a private club and my nose was awoken by wonderful fragrances of food coming out of the kitchen and my stomach was awaking to hunger. I was mesmerized by the sounds of a piano playing beautiful delightful music and could not find... More
