Since Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink first opened in the Miami Design District in spring of 2007, diners have come to embrace and crave its refreshing combination of laid-back atmosphere and seriously good food, a neighborhood bistro that is the ultimate showcase for the type of cuisine that chef/owner Michael Schwartz does best – homemade, unpretentious, delectable, with an emphasis on great local ingredients. Our main dining room and courtyard seat 100, and The Bar Room, an additional 16, with 24 more seats at a welcoming bar. Sunday Brunch is where our small plates shine on a weekly-changing menu of savory and sweet. Our restaurant is located in the vibrant Design District neighborhood, luxury fashion’s new playground in Miami.

Please call for our corkage and cake policies and fees.

Came here for a Sunday Brunch for our 1 year anniversary. The food was spectacular and the service was more than kind! We sat by the window by ourselves so we had the entire space to ourselves.

The food was great as always, but Louis truly went above and beyond. When we got seated we kind of fell through the cracks with everything going on, but Louis stepped up even though we weren’t in his section. He more than made up for the initial delay in being taken care of by offering helpful recommendations, taking extra time to make sure we had everything we needed, and giving us just awesome service. His attitude was so refreshing, and at no time did we feel rushed or neglected. Thank you!

It's casual dining with a flair. The menu is simple but has a bit of everything. The ambiance is quaint and it has a nice area for outside eating.

Normally love Michael's, but not returning from Covid with the same vigor as the competition. Sad, and hope the ship is righted soon.

Food and service were great. Ambience was not the best. We were seated in front of a very large fan which blew our napkins away in the back of the restaurant (outdoor) next to the kitchen and garbage bins. I do understand that social distancing is important during these times, but I felt like I was “baby in the corner”.

The food was fantastic and they are being careful about Covid. They increased their outdoor seating and tables were not too close together. It was nice to be out again. Service was friendly and efficient.

We had a reservation for 8 pm and they sat us at 9:00 pm. Manager was really bad but after we sat down she ended up being better.
Unacceptable that with a reservation we waited 1 hr.
They sat 2 people in a table of four before us.
Really bad.

Restaurant was supposed to offer a special all weekend long and when we asked for the special, were told they decided not to offer it on that Sunday without informing customers of the said change.

The portion size was extremely small considering they charged $18 for 1/2 an English muffin with one (1) egg and a very small amount of lobster.
It was good but they should consider noting their brunch items as “samples” rather than an entree.
