One of the best things about Michael's is that it's off the beaten path. To get there you walk far away from the craziness of Duval street and onto a rather pretty neighborhood of KW. The homes along Margaret are some of the nicest we've seen on the island.
The restaurant itself is very elegant but not over-the-top pretentious like the place we went to earlier today. The outside tables have huge umbrellas with led lighting inside them that give a soft glow. There's a fountain on the patio as well.
Our waitress, Freya, was very sweet. She made you feel like she really cared about you and didn't seem fake in any way. She had a real hominess about her, and had a way about her that made us feel comfortable.
We ended up ordering four apps and one entree. The prosciutto wrapped asparagus were to die for, although they were served with a onion-mushroom sauce that had raw onions in it. We thought it would have been much better with carmelized onions. The wedge salad was very fresh, and had a pungent Roquefort dressing on it that I loved. The carpaccio and the seafood crepe were good as well, especially the big hunks of jumbo lump crab. The entree was the snapper with beurre blanc sauce, which was great, but had we known it was being served with bland rice and not the mashed potatoes we saw other peoples entrees with, we would have asked to swap them out.
All in all we recommend Michael's, especially as a break from the crazy west side of the island.
