  • Michael's, one of St. Augustine's finest restaurants, offers casually elegant dining in an historic St. Augustine building. Chef and owner Michael Lugo has created a menu that pays homage to Spanish and European influences and offers a fine-dining steakhouse component.

    The menu chages seasonally and fresh seafood dishes could include lobster gnocchi, crab croquetas with datil guava glaze, and seared ora king salmon over fresh lentils. In addition to the seafood dishes, cheese and charcuterie plates, and Latin-inspired starters, Michael's focuses on nearly a dozen steakhouse cuts. Each steak is served with a signature sauce ranging from herb chimichurri to red pepper romesco.

    The comfortable indoor seating is made cozy by the serene blue-painted walls, while the vibrant art sets the tone for the colorful food and exquisite flavors. Michael's has a one-of-a-kind dessert program in partnership with local chocolatier, Nils Rowland of Créme de la Cocoa, and they also have an extensive 400-label wine selection.

    Michael's combines fine dining flair and artistic atmosphere to accommodate a romantic evening, fun night out, or a great place to entertain clients. Michael's is open on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 5 to 10 p.m.; and on Friday and Saturday  from 5 to 10:30 p.m. They are closed on Mondays.

    I wanted to add a special review to this restaurant, stemming from a great experience I had there last summer. The dinner and wine list were very enjoyable and we had a lovely meal. But that is not were the story ends... Waking up in the morning I quickly discovered that I was a numbskull and left my brand new Ray-bans out somewhere in the St. Augustine night. Assuming that I would never see them again, I did at least attempt some detective work, and was able to back track my path to Michael's Tasting Room. Popping in before lunch time, before I raced out of town, I was surprised to learn that the waitress at the time remembers having a conversation with our waiter from the previous night AND "she thinks he hid the glasses to protect them from wandering off". Long story short, they ended up coming together and mailing my sun glasses back to me in Seattle. Holy Cow, that is great customer service. So, if you are reading this, please trust me that the food was great, and go visit Michaels Tasting Room to help pay them back for the extra effort they went for me! Enjoy!

    My family just returned from a wonderful vacation in St. Augustine. Dinner at the Tasting Room was one of the highlights. The Tapas dishes were unique and delicious and the wine selection superb. Our waiter accommodated our son who is strictly a 'burger' kind of guy. They went out of their way to give us what we needed. We will surely come back anytime we are in St. Augustine.
