Michaels Downtown is part of the Long Beach family of restaurants that include Michael's on Naples, Michael's Pizzeria, and Chianina Steakhouse.
Very pleasant. Good food and good service. A pleasant surprise. Would return if in the area. Nice outdoor seating with heaters.
Great service/ fresh and tasty food
Michael's Downtown is on the Promenade, the pedestrian area in Long Beach. We enjoyed the nice weather in the outdoor seating area. We tried the prosciutto, burratta and pear appetizer which was very tasty. I was excited to try the homemade pastas, but was disappointed when my tagliatelle was mushy and not al dente. The taste was great, but the pasta was not enjoyable. Try their chili oil, it's great with some crusty bread or on the pasta.
Eight of us ate there and everyone raved about their dinner choices. Waiter was friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend!
We really enjoyed the evening at Michael's - the food was amazing, the waiter was very friendly and helpful, the ambiance was excellent...I would definitely go there again.
Great food, free parking in the structure across the street.
Michael’s pizzeria has transitioned into Michaels Downtown - emphasis is on Italian delicacies but smaller servings - certainly much smaller pizzas - and increased prices. It’s bittersweet
Fantastic Vibe and impeccable service. Great location. easy parking
The food was delicious and the service was on point, like always. We tried a new dish on the specials board and it did not disappoint. The chef has a very good palate and we love trying his new pasta dishes.
Everything was excellent had a great brunch and our server Shelly was great
The restaurant was very slow when we got there for brunch, which I was very surprised about. I really enjoyed the food and drinks, and the patio was really nice. Our server was great, we will definitely be back!
Chef Giuseppe 5 course dinner was exceptional. Perfect portions and unique taste to each dish. Highly recommend
Fresh from scratch and flavorful pastas.
Visiting Long Beach during the week and wanted Italian food. Michaels is in a fun area, we sat outside and loved our food. We started with crab cakes then I got one of the pizzas, definitely big enough to share. My husband got the gnocchi and said it was great.
Food was amazing. Location, crowd, decor excellent. Definitely going back and making it a regular spot!
I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. The salads are great and the pizza is consistently good. Service was good this night, however the salads did take a while to be served but they were extremely fresh and good.
The meal and customer service were top notch.
Service was outstanding! Food was very good and servings were just the right size.
Delicious and unusual fennel— artichoke salad. Very tasty sausage pizza. Service was very good and it was quiet, enabling conversation.
The Branzino is delicious 😋 as is the bolognese
Outstanding appetizer - prosciutto, burrata and grilled pear! Lasagna was delicious and very generous portion!
Great Italian restaurant
Liked the outdoor seating too! Service and food were both great.
Pizza was nothing special - the dough was too soft so cheese, sauce, toppings made it soggy. Service was fantastic.
We had a large group — 12 people, half of whom were kids. We had such a great experience where we enjoyed each other’s company with great food and excellent service.
The food was delicious. I am attaching a picture of my perfect and scrumptious fish!! We also ordered meatball appetizers, pizzas and salads, all of which were enjoyed immensely. The kids made their own pizzas which they loved. Our server took great care of us — we never needed anything because she was so efficient in refilling drinks and anticipating our needs.
Thank you to the team at Michael’s Downtown for a perfect summer evening with great friends and good food.
Camille was our server and delightful as always. Lasagne bolognese was excellent, prompt delivery and presentation! A fav restaurant for my dining experiences. Thank you Chef Giuseppe!!
Service was excellent, and the food was good! Not much more to say, except loved sitting at the bar. It's quite a show!
Excellent pizzas and appetizers. Located on increasingly hip pedestrian mall in downtown Long Beach. Service is attentive and concerned that we are fully satisfied.
Service and food was outstanding. We ordered the specials that were suggested and was not disappointed will eat there again and recommend to everyone.
The pasta we had during the done LBC event and the gelato were the best parts. The meatball was just ok, the watermelon salad was way more spinach then watermelon and the chicken parmesan was a little soggy on the top.
Good food (the vegan is really vegan) really liked the eggplant starter and the gnocchi. The outside patio is fabulous as the sunsets
Went for the 5 course pasta dinner. A friendly casual space with an open kitchen, and fine dining experience because Food was fabulous! Great service. One box of leftovers went missing and chef made new dish to take home.
Excellent food, great service, comfortable venue, good menu
Food was very good, service was ok.
Great food and friendly service. 😊
Food was great, liked the portion size (plenty but not overly large), friendly waiter, low key atmosphere, casual dress, not noisy so were able to communicate easily with friends and staff, like the style and layout of the restaurant and the friendly buon giorno as we entered. Enjoyed the wine and we had a really nice evening.
Our favorite restaurant! The homemade pasta dishes are amazing.
Our servers were so helpful and accommodating. We came with a large party and they were able to take care of us without any problems. The food was amazing!
Very pleasant experience mid-afternoon with a group of eight. Although on arrival we were told the restaurant was closed, they did honor our 2:30 reservation. That was disconcerting and we did have the restaurant all to ourselves. Oh well. Service was friendly. The food was fresh and tasty. The outdoor patio was quite pleasant and is equipped with heaters to counter the ocean breeze. Reasonable prices.
