    Good for breakfast but a little pricy for what you get.

    While I didn't like Peninsula bar, I loved this bar/restaurant. Great chef and diverse menu - small plates through nice entrees. Good mixed crowd. Try the duck confit tacos!!

    A bit stuffy but great food. Fried polenta with goat cheese and a golden beet was out of this world. Nice big room in the back for private events

    The Salmon Tartare & Rosé Champagne was delicious. Very friendly atmosphere

    Overrated. They cannot seem to differentiate between "small" and "large" plates. And they charge for bread. #cranky

    Never again! Overpriced, ice cold food, no bartender. The waitress was the bartender! They charge for a roll, $3.Never again. Pretty place, zero personality. Hot drink came out cold, food was cold!

    Stay away! Place was empty on Sat night. Waitress doubled as bartender - drinks horrible. Food all came put ice cold and they screwed up my order. Menu far too limited for restaurant of this price.

    A beautiful place with a very personable owner who visits every table. Creative diverse menu . Eggplant ravioli is especially delightful.

    "Power brokers teeter between wanting to be seen and wanting to be left alone, and the staff at Michael's has been trained on how to negotiate that fine line." -Forbes

    Try a rapid infused @PurityVodka martini!

    We love the great location. Dinner here works well as a classy prelude to a Broadway show, while lunch offers respite from Fifth Avenue shopping. Note: Menus here change seasonally. Read more

    Make sure you notice the (now) vintage 80s artwork. This place is frozen in a very different time.

    The best blueberry pancakes in the world!

    In the 'Fifty and Under’ category, opt for the Grenache/Syrah Cuvee Stephi. 2007 was a great vintage in Roussillon; this wine displays characteristic dark fruit, herb, and earth. A quality wine!

    Sit down for lunch at Michael’s and you're sure to spot a few celebs, like David Patrick Columbia of New York Social Diary. And follow Michael’s on Twitter for a list of the literati in attendance. Read more

    See and be seen at this stellar restaurant. Try to grab a table in the Garden Room to dine surrounded by art from Jasper Johns, David Hockney and Frank Stella.

    it's always friggn' freezing in there but the braised mushroom app is ace!
