Best Ambiance, Food and Service.
Michael's on Main in Soquel, not only has great cocktail drink specials, but the food is fantastic. My lady friends and I had a blast last weekend. Thank you for showing us what we have been missing out on. Pricing is very realistic for the service and quality of food. Seared Ahi Tuna was one of our favorites.
Great bar, Great view, Great staff!.
Bar can get loud but good vibe and local feel. Lazy lunch on the back deck is perfect cure for hangover. Chef Clark and his staff neverr fail to amaze. If you are unhappy for any reason talk to the staff and they will make it right. Try the tuesday night food and wine pairing for a great deal.
Can't beat the ambiance, but the food could be better.
Fun drinks, beautiful romantic spot on the river, nice inside decor as well w/ cozy fireplace. The food could be better (fish was overcooked and overpriced).
My fiance and I were also like godiva_diva looking for wedding sites. We randomly came across Michaels on Main and were very impression with the atmosphere, service, food and feel of the restaurant.
We made the decision to have our wedding at the restaurant.
Any you are visiting Santa Cruz Michaels on Main is a great stop to relax and have an awesome meal.
My fiance and I just recently dined here after viewing some possible wedding locations. The staff was awesome, the food phenomenal, the ambiance beautiful and the overall experience lead us to decide to hold our wedding there!
I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in, or passing through, the Santa Cruz area.
Mother's Day Let-down.
The resturant was empty when our party of 8 was seated and was sparsely populated during our stay. After bungling our cocktails, a 20 min wait for salads, then 10 min more, 3 were served entrees, then 3 more, then minutes again for the last 2 meals. The Salmon arrived mealy and over-cooked as was the Halibut. Four of us sub'd Sauteed Spinach for starch, only one received the side. The others received a few raw spinach leaves on their plate. When asked, the wait-person seemed confused since we received the few leaves already. We ordered sides, which arrived as we finished our meal. We ordered dessert, again the wait person returned to announce they were out of another request. The check arrives, and we discover a 20% ($50) gratuity added for the party of 8. Call this the last ha-ha!
I had a great dining experience at Michaels! The staff totally walked me through my order and I was so impressed with the presentation of the meal. Just Fantastic! The menu is so fresh and colorful, I just loved every minute of it. Thanks so much and my wife wants to thank you too. Maybe now I can get away from her cooking a little more....
