    Michael's has been in Santa Monica since 1979. I actually celebrated my 16th B. Day there. It has always remained a classic in contemporary cuisine. Now offering a happy hour with great bar bites..

    Great local spot for cocktails. Bartenders are very serious about their job. Also, this place makes its own carmalized salt for margaritas.

    General manager/sommelier is a very knowledgable, very nice guy who can make excellent wine recommendations whatever your taste or price range from one of the best wine lists in town.

    I just checked in so I could congratulate Michael's on the worse Foursquare special of all time! Wow I can make a reservation! What a great special! Hat's off to the marketing genius who created that!

    Chatting with Michael McCarty is one of the best things about this place! The farm-to-table fare is a given - McCarty invented California cuisine in LA 32 years ago...

    Through the happy hour menu, Michael’s provides “a snapshot, a window into the kind of food that we do” that is also affordable, says GM Andrew Turner. Read more

    Everything is fresh and organic from farm to table- Patio table is best.

    Look for Joey, he will take superb care of you. And Jason makes the best drinks of all time at the front bar.

    Ask Jason to mix you something special. He's the best mixologist in town and one tip, he loves tequila.

    The house wine is grown right on Michael's vineyard home in Malibu! Don't know where else you can get something that unique.

    Avoid it at all costs. Food is bland and just normal. Why eat out if you can cook better at home. Way overpriced too.
