I had to write this review after reading some of the negative reviews . First of all: I have dined at all of Chef Bernstien's restaurants several times. I always come back to Michy's for the great food and service. I have had the pleasure of meeting Chef Bernstien and her husband David. They are both the most warm,sincere and accomodating people I have ever enncountered in the restaurant business. Their love and passion for the business trickles down to the staff,which are both knowledgable and friendly. I feel blessed to have a Chef of Michelle's caliber living and working in Miami. I have to say that reading those negative reviews I feel that most of those people have never eaten at the restaurant or could'nt figure out the concept of there half's and fulls on the menu. I would reccommend that anyone reading this go try her food for themselves. I guarantee you will love it!

Pros: The Best Food in Miami by far.

Cons: Hard to locate.

I found the wine list to be intriguing and affordable.They served the freshest oysters I've ever eaten in Florida. Michelle's White Gazpacho was velvety and complex, and the salads were cool perfection. Our next course of Truffle Polenta and Duck Confit was a decadent dream. Her Seared Foie almost sent me over the top, and no one in this town does Sweetbreads better. The Pasta & Clams seduced my palate all over again and the Short Ribs were addictive. I understand why the Bread Pudding is the only dessert in her cookbook. The service was outstanding. None of us can wait to go back.

Pros: Food, Service & Wine List

Cons: Small Sign Out Front

I haven't felt this disappointed in over a decade. The food sounds very "high brow" so you would expect it to have been halfway decent. I make better steaks and I can't even cook. We spent over $200 for about $30 worth of appetizer sized food. I left feeling violated especially when they charged us $18 just for a glass of riesling.

Buyer beware!!!!!

Pros: You only have to pay $5 to self park

Cons: Mediocre food at high end prices!

.

Do not go here hungry... you will leave hungry. Whether you order full portions or half portions, you will leave starving and broke.

The food was ok. The bread pudding could have been warmer - Im not sure if it was supposed to be kind of cold or not tho. The bartender/waitress was nice.. and considering how crowded it was, we got our food fairly quickly.

Pros: You can say you went there

Cons: Portions are too small

.

I went there three times and the last time the check was a whopping $ 600 for the four of us and totally not worthed......
The place is loud and too bright, the staff is nice, the wine list is extensive, but the food is a big disappointment because i think the main ingredients are cheap quality meats and seafood covered up with sauces too heavy and too rich with butter and cream or perfumed with truffle oil and other scents to disguised what is under the plate.

The portions are so tiny that i had to order many "little" dishes and by the time i got home i was sick with "rich food overdose"

Chef Bernstein has been prized and awarded everywhere for her cuisine, and i think she is a very talented person to come up with such intricate recipes and her presentation is beautiful but she should use better ingredients for the prices that she charges in that location and with that horrible decor, i am absolutely not going back.

Pros: service

Cons: food, ambiance

We went to what I thought was one of the best restaurants in Miami. It certainly is renowned. However the food lacked everything. The bill was exorbitant! The salads were mushy. The polenta was tasteless and stodgy. The shrimp was so salty it burned my tongue. The sweetbreads were breaded and not very good. What a pity because I really wanted good food. I was so disappointed.

Pros: Nice photos in the hallway. Nice staff.

Cons: The food was salty and not up to scratch. what a pity!Looks out ontoBiscayne Blvd.which is not very pretty.wh

I was tempted in rate this at only 3 Stars, but went with 4 due to the popularity of the place. While the food is very good, I find the service a bit slow, but then I'm usually in a rush. Most folks seem to enjoy the place and have a good gab between ordering and eating.

I have been at Michy's twice. I moved here from NY 6 months ago and finally decided to give it a try after hearing so many contradictory reviews from friends. I have to say the food and ingredients in general are top quality, even thought many of the dishes seem totally self indulgent to me. On both visits we found execution problems. The first time the "croquetas" were frozen in the core, not cold, frozen. The "short rib" on the first visit was tiny and the meat was tough. On the second visit the piece we got was twice the size and very moist and flavorful, truly delicious. Salads were good, the Ceviche had too much of a ginger taste.On the second visit we ordered the "cuatro leches" cake and the fruit on the sauce was sour, and tasted/looked like it had been sitting there for days again in the first visit the cake was perfect. Wine list is very good but be prepared to pay a 400% mark up price .Service was just good for Miami stanards but if you now better it is just barely average. When I had to go to the restroom I was shocked to see the wall needs to be scrubbed and painted urgently! they were out of soap and paper towels, and the restrooms were not clean.

It seems to me that the owners spend all the money they save in rent , maintaining the locale and training employees in a great PR firm because the place is totally overrated and extremely over prized for the overall experience. I think this place has a great potential but they need to work on consistency and execution. All the problems we experienced could be forgiven to a small neighborhood place, but not to a restaurant that charges you as much as a NYC 4 stars restaurant. Overall a terrible value for what you spend there.

I was really wary of going to Michy's after reading the reviews on this site. To top it off, we were entering the restaurant as a friend was leaving and he declared the place "overhyped". I had also heard the place was over-priced, and they don't seem to have a website with a menu so I didn't even know if they'd have something I'd like for the price. Well, I have got to say, despite my reservations, I really enjoyed my experience there. First, the ambience is very comfortable and I really think that even though the decor is a bit of a hodgepodge, it does come together very nicely. Secondly, I am not a wine connoisseur by any means, but I thought the waiter recommended a great "light" red wine from the by the glass menu. It went very well with the dinner. I did think the menu was a bit win or miss. We tried the seared foie gras and duck confit to start. The foie gras was simply amazing- it really is the best I've had in Miami. The duck confit was dry and I can get it much better and cheaper elsewhere. Same thing happened with our entrees. Short ribs were probably the worst I've had in Miami and expensive. They weren't bad, but they didn't fall off the bone and melt in my mouth or anything. But the steak frites were delightful. I am not a bread pudding person but I followed the advice of the citysearch folks and ordered that for dessert- that too was amazing. So my consensus is that I can see why people may not have a positive experience at Michy's if they order a dish that is substandard. But there are dishes on the menu that I think are noteworthy and if you find the right thing you may just be hooked!

Went to Michy's on a Sunday night. Menu said "Prawns" plural. Price was $22. When dish came out it was one prawn - good size but not super large - about an under 8 for $22. It was undercooked to boot. Sent it back and came out OK. Tasted watery so might have been frozen - not sure. Checked with a friend in NY who writes restaurant reviews and said he never heard of a $22 prawn - very overpriced. Wine prices also overpriced. There was nothing by the glass that was not $15 or higher and second rate - White from Chile that was more for a glass than the whole bottle cost. Since there was nothing drinkable by the glass we ordered a bottle of Sancerre for $58. Wine was good. Saw the same bottle in the wine store for $18 the next day. Food was very good but a rip off. Would not go back.

We visited for the first time on Christmas Eve. It was a pre-fix menu and a wine flight was also available.
My husband and I each chose different selections for all courses, and everything we had was absolutely delicious! My filet mignon melted in my mouth. The bread pudding (not usually a favorite of mine) made me a convert as it was simply the best bread puddingI have ever had in my life. The service was wonderful and wait staff was very friendly and helpful. We did not have reservations but they fit us in at the bar which was very comfortable. This meal will go down as one of the best I have ever had, (seconded by my husband). P.S. the chestnut soup made with white truffle oil is also to die for.

Pros: The Food, Ambience, Wait Staff, Unpretentious Wine Sommelier

Cons: Parking

The decor is awful considering it is the result of the transformation of an old retail store into a cold looking overcrowded restaurant with some fabric hanging from the walls. The sticky plastic "Dinette" style chairs are very uncomfortable. The food is really not noteworthy. I had to send my snapper back twice for being undercooked and finally just gave up. We had to ask for salt and pepper since none was availble at the table. Service was slow and spotty. The portions are ridiculously small and the prices are insultingly high! The menue is very limited and unimaginative. This reminded me of the old classic "The Emperor's New clothes"--does Michelle's name carry so much weight that nobody will wake up to the fact that you are just taken for a ride at Michy's?

Making a reservation was a bit difficult we did get a 6.30, but when we showed up closer to 7 the place was near empty, 5 tables occupied maybe, I had originally asked for a 7 reservation I was assured there wasn't space. The service was good, nice people, not too attentive, but quick. There was a woman walking around in jeans, wearing shoes that fit her weirdly, an ugly green crocheted sweater over a brown 3/4 length sleeve cotton shirt-she looked horrible and I unfortunately assume she may have been the owner. In one of the reviews I had read it stated that this is a place where people get dressed up to go whomever this woman was put the image to shame. I ordered a half plate of the truffled polenta which was out of this world. The polenta was runny but I didn't mind, except it wasn't served with a spoon and there was no spoon on the table so toward the end of the bowl it became difficult to eat with a fork - but the flavor was outstanding. The half serving was more than enough.
My boyfriend had the ceviche. It was ok, nothing to write home about. Cold, the flavor of the lime stood out, the lettuce at the bottom of the bowl was very green, it looked ok - but it was just ceviche.
My second dish was a half plate of the potato gnocchi with oxtail. The flavor was steady, tasted like a stew, but nothing stood out - maybe a bit too much salt. It was just ok. The gnocchi texture didn't do anything for me, there was no flavor. The oxtail was fine. I was hoping to be swept away by the flavor, like I was with the polenta. I didn't finish the dish.
My boyfriend had the seafood linguini, when they say the seafood is cut up into tiny pieces they aren't joking. It was too watery. No outstanding flavor element. Steady, but kind of bland. The wine was outstanding.
The place is pretty but I feel bad for anyone who gets stuck with the table at the front door. As we entered and left, the door brushed against the person at the table. Doesn't do much for the image.

Cons: $100 to enjoy only 1 dish. Cold room. Bland flavors overall.

Having always been a fan, I was so disappointed that our great hope for a truly landmark restaurant in the neighborhood has slipped away. I actually had to send the fish back it was so "mealy" and very obviously, not fresh. The short rib favorite was extremely fatty and salty. The "jamon crepes" were missing the "jamon". After sending a meal back to the kitchen, there was not even an offer of a "coffee on the house" to apologize for the disappointment. Very heartbreaking to a frequent customer who spends an average per person tab of $200. The excuse was that everyone was travelling in Europe - perhaps then, the room should have closed for a holiday rather than ruin a beautiful reputation. The only saving grace - the always fabulous sommelier.

My family ate at Michy's for the first time this weekend - and it was delicious! You can order most of the items on the menu in half or full orders, which allows you to sample a bunch. The Bibb Salad was incredible, as was their special Mac-n-Cheese. My favorite entree was the Skirt Steak w/ Chimichurri and Bearnaise sauces. Yum! The Apple Tart Tatin and Bread Pudding were great for dessert. Also found the wine/champagne menu to be excellent. Many of the dishes are actually quite affordable - just watch out because you'll want to order one of everything. Oh, and it's not nearly as dressy as many reviews made it seem... which I liked. Only con is that it's at 69th and Biscayne in a building and neighborhood that has no charm. Otherwise, really great!

Where to begin? I am in the biz and only in my restaurant have I ever seen management take such great care of guests that are in the service industry, until Michy's. On my first visit, we didn't make reservations and were happy to dine at the bar. Our bartender was great as was everything else to follow. Food was excellent!! I absolutely love how the menu is done, with the option of half and full size portions. Now, not to insult the Chef that I work for, but never have I ever had a better frois gras in my life then here. I never even liked it before I had Chef Michelle's, which is the same response that a friend of mine had when I forced her to try it against her will... and now she won?t stop raving about it! Sweetbreads, AMAZING. Polenta, AMAZING... rich but amazing none the less. Civeche? The best I've ever had, complete with corn nuts for added crunch and flavor. Honestly, this restaurant is a true gem. You will not see a fashion model hostess. It might not be in the best location, but once inside, you forget about your surroundings. I am so happy that a restaurant like this has opened and will frequent it as long as it's there. This is what restaurants are supposed to be like.

Pros: EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!

Cons: Location, but that is easily forgotten...

Our party (we were two) was seated immediately (we had a reservation). The ambiance is reminiscent of a restaurant you would find in the West Village, or SoHo, in NYC. Personally I liked it (for whatever that is worth).
Service was friendly as well as efficient. They were professional and helpful.
Now on to the most important part-the food.
Everything may be ordered in "half" or "full" portions. No, the half portions are not enough for an entree, unless you are in training for "America's Next Top Model". On average, half portions will run you about $19 per plate, $32 for full portions. This is just an average for anyone reading this.
To start, we ordered jambon (ham) and cheese croquettes. They arrived and were perfectly crispy and not greasy, on the outside. However the center was cold. I searched for the "jambon", without luck.
Next we ordered the braised short ribs, and the codfish (half orders). Two perfect sized tasting portions arrived. Both were tasty, although as a personal preference I found the ribs a bit too fatty. The mashed potatoes with the short ribs were delicious. The codfish was perfectly cooked, and came with flash fried spinach.
Afterwards we ordered two more half orders. Oink! We asked for the paella and the friend chicken. The paella arrived with a small piece of fish. The rice tasted like the over cooked portion you scrap from the bottom of the pan. We asked the waiter and he said that is how the rice's texture is. Right. Chicken was good, sauces ok, nothing great. A spicier, or more complex sauce would be a better choice (FYI to the restaurant).
Dessert was good. I had a bit of my friend's. She ordered the bread pudding.
As a fair person I would need to go back again. You can't base a restaurant on one visit alone.
Still people keep in mind isn't not cheap. With a few glasses of wine, and gratuity, the total check came out to $190, and we did not order expensive wine.
Hope this review helps.

Afterwards we ordered two more half orders. Oink! We asked for the paella and the friend chicken. The paella arrived with a small piece of fish. The rice tasted like the over cooked portion you scrap from the bottom of the pan. We asked the waiter and he said that is how the rice's texture is. Right. Chicken was good, sauces ok, nothing great. A spicier, or more complex sauce would be a better choice (FYI to the restaurant).
Dessert was good. I had a bit of my friend's. She ordered the bread pudding.
As a fair person I would need to go back again. You can't base a restaurant on one visit alone.
Still people keep in mind isn't not cheap. With a few glasses of wine, and gratuity, the total check came out to $190, and we did not order expensive wine.
Hope this review helps.

Pros: Service, Ambiance

Cons: Neighboorhood, Inconsistent Food

I can't understand the mediocre reviews on this site--Michy's is easily the best restaurant in Miami. The food was impeccable--it was a perfect dining experience, and surprisingly reasonable in price. Every dish we had--and we tried 7--was perfect. I can't wait to go back.

Pros: Excellent food; reasonably priced.

Cons: Short wait for a table.

VERY disappointing. I've heard the hype on Michy's for a while and decided to finally give it a try. I was not impressed. The food was ok, not great and very salty. We ordered one of the specials as an appetizer, it was a small portion and had NO flavor, better yet when we got the bill our flavorless appetizer was $75! Just to top things off my friend ordered a bottle of wine for the table and when we got the bill we found they had brought us the same winery but a higher end (and way more expensive) bottle! I don't mind paying for good food but I actually felt like I was ripped off.

Service is fine if not a little too friendly , not really professional, what you need to remember here is that this is a family affair and that her parents virtually eat there every night. She comes out to embrace them etc etc on a nightly basis....her sister did a huge disservice by thrifting the room and doing a 60's theme that has zero atmosphere. The food is fairly priced,decadent and worth it and the scene is similar you always see someone you know or wish you did, one night Gloria Estefan was in there with her whole family and J.lo and Marc A entourage.......go once for fun ,go twice for food and then go somewhere else............

It's New Year's Eve and I just left Michy's a few hours ago after a prix fixe tasting menu with flight of wines. This is the second time that I've dined there, and though I've really, really tried to be positive about the experience, I can honestly say that it's been so-so. The tab for our table of six was approximately $1350. I feel that restaurants at this price point should offer impeccable service, but overall ours was lacking. Each of the 5 courses arrived slowly, one entree was not cooked as ordered, and unfortunately a server spilled water all over one member of the party. The menu items were good, but nothing amazing. My starter was a torchon of foie gras that was ok...I just had a torchon of foie gras at Daniel in Manhattan last week that was fantastic, by comparison. My entree of filet mignon was dusted with a gremolata that seemed more grainy than flavorful. Dessert was also another tired incarnation of the molten chocolate cakes that are so popular these days. Of note, the wine selections were excellent...many thanks to the sommelier.
Summary...good, definitely not great...absolutely needs more work to justfy the price.

Located on Biscayne Blvd. this restaurant packs them in. The menu is refreshingly unique and offers half servings as well as full plates. Being a man who loves to eat I was a little disappointed on the small size of the full plate. I am scared to think what the half plate looked like! However I respect the fact that the food was so delicious I probably would have over eaten and felt bad later? The wine selection is top notch?.I had the braised short ribs which were nothing short of amazing. I recommend it for people who want to venture off and see that there is more to Miami than South Beach!

Simply delectable! Try the pan seared foie gras on a tender sweet corn biscuit with maple syrup. The ambiance is casually elegant and the crowd knows what is good for them! Service was second to none, in a non-frumpy way.

On Saturday night we made a reservation for 7:30, but arrived at 7:00. Getting seated early was no problem, and the service was generally ok. My wife picked the quail dish. I had the Salmon. In a word our food was mediocre at best. My fish was OK, but small and not worth the price. The quail, however, was just bad. We were expecting a nice bird for the price. Instead what we got was something that looked like it was scraped off a pan. Awful side of rabo encendido? dish. All this with 2 glasses of wine, and a dessert (beignets, bland) for $150. What a rip - avoid this place like the plague. Many better restaurants in Miami for a lot less.

Finally a restaurant that isnt stuffy and serves thoughtful food and wine. They are trying to satisfy the whole neighborhood rather than just make the critics and selective diners happy.
Its a new experience for Miami, one that was way overdue. The flavors are clean, fresh and ingredients awesome. Congratulations for a great attitude, wine list and experience.

I just finished dinner at Michy's, not even decent food, horrible service!
Michys seem to have a knack for some critics, but leaving me decidedly underwhelmed. It's one of those places where the food is detailed on the menu in an absurdly overwrought and precious fashion, and ends up being simply not that great. Nor, in my opinion, particularly creative. Granted, I often find myself the odd-person out in my ambivalent at best view, hence the title, but there it is.
Boring atmosphere, below average food. The seafood platter appetizer, frozen shrimpsno flavora mediocre oyster selection, thats it.. Pasta carbonara with frozen peasinedibleCod main special bland beyond recognition with overcooked vegetables. In all a horror story.

Following several articles we went to try Michy's on Biscayne Boulevard, the place is a little funky but the mood is good. The service was pretty much decent, not surprising considering the average Miami 'standard' is really low. As far as the food goes, they had just too many 'misses', I was dissapointed specially by a bland conch appetizer and my husband seriously unhappy with a ropa vieja Cuban braised meat that was both overly spiced and too greasy. A couple of successes though, a nice appetizer of foie gras torchon and a main portion of duck confit. Skip dessert as we were presented with a banana tart -complimentary, since the server noted our mostly disapponting comments- almost inedible, way too sweet and the dough way too thick. In all a pitty.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience our first time at Michy's. The service was excellent - the wait staff is knowledgeable and quick with recommendations. The crab timbale special, ham and blue cheese croquetas, and duck with calabaza ravioli were all divine. We finished with the baked alaska paired with a delightful rose champagne with a color so deep it might as well be called red (although I understand that technically there is no such thing as 'red' champagne).

As I looked around the dining room, guests wore satisfied smiles, and (as was our case) were actually leaning over to ask their neighbors about the dishes they were sampling. In fact, the party of four next to us requested several of the dishes we tried after seeing how much we were enjoying them. We will be going back again and again.

THe place was great and very welcoming. THe energy of the restaurant is great, servers really know the menu, even the food runners are great! The food is unbelievable. It a great idea that you have hlaf portions or full portions. You can do the tapas thing and taste more of the menu...it's worth it. It's fine dining in a more casual atmosphere, great job at blening both together.

So far beyond the Miami Beach Scene and Attitude! Fantastic! Let's let the true Art of the Cousine be the Experience! Coming from NYC last week, and having dined at the Spice Market, Olives, and ONO, I finally feel that Miami is not only getting there, but almost establishing it's own Meat Packing District!! Hee hee! with a few more Restaurants like Michy's, NYC has nothing on us!!
So my experience started by walking into this vibrant and revitalizing space, that was full of energy. It was a packed house last night, and near the back of the room was the bar filled by awaiting patrons! I walked up to the hostess and and I had, I think, the last open table! Thanks GOD for my Reservation! lol!
that was it! My Experience blew me away!! I ordered 9 half portions (which was totally cool) so that I could try as many dishes as possible. Ok, so this is the part I don't get!!!! NO DISH was my favorite, because they were all better than the next, and then you'd try the same dish again, and it was better than the last! I've never had that experience!! WOW!
I had the blue cheese croquetes (insane!), the ceviche, the amazing turks and caicos Conch, the watercress and goat cheese salad (!!!!), Truffled Polenta with quail egg and Panchetta? (wow),BBQ Quail (!!!), Seared Foie Gras(running out of descriptions), Seared Duck breast, Short Ribs and polenta!! WOw! Everything was Amazing! I also had a great red Burgundy, Mercurey! But as amazing as that 1er Cru was, I almost forgot about it becasue the food was killing me softly (in the best sense of the meaning)!! What can I say?? Not in the mood for the formal Brickell power lunch district, or the South Beach Boom Boom tonight?? Then I highly recommend you to try Michy's, where her restaurant is the canvas and her food is the loving Art!! WOw!!! I feel like such a funny critic, but I just had to share my enthusiasm about this place!! NYC, watch out!!!

We had a very good bottle of wine. However, the food was good at best - not bad, but we are not talking about the next time we need to return. The food is good/average that will attract people for the a one time visit. The decor is trying and the crowd is boring. My venture off the beach was a bomb. I think I will continue to eat on the beach or cook in.
