Foursquare Tips

  • 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..
  • On February 21, 2012, Chef John-Carlos Kuramoto and mixologist Jason Robey of Michaels Santa Monica debuted an All Night $6 Happy Hour menu.
  • I never eat here I just stop in to make holiday reservations.
  • 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!
  • New Happy Hour Menu!
  • Featured in LA Weekly's "L.A.'s Best Cocktails: Our 55 favorites and where to find them." (Click 'More Info')
  • The bar is lovely! Not like sitting on that beautiful patio, but the NEGRONIs come FAST at a bar w only four seats!!
  • Truly amazing. Try everything.
  • Loved my experience at Michaels. Fun and classy atmosphere. Food was exceptional and staff was informative. Would highly recommend!!!
  • Much better than average reviews! Great terrace, great food and great service!
  • Loyalty special! Check in 5 times, and recieve a free order of Truffle Fries---they are delish!
  • Nice touch. Michael welcomes guests. Exceptionally reasonable prices.
  • Everything is fresh and organic from farm to table- Patio table is best.
  • Great art and even greater food.
  • Great local spot for cocktails. Bartenders are very serious about their job. Also, this place makes its own carmalized salt for margaritas.
  • Your special sucks
  • Truffle fries.
  • 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.
  • Highly overrated restaurant. Trying to understand what's so good about it - def not the food or decor, in my experience :(
