Best Ambiance, Food and Service 6/10/2008

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. Pros: Fantastic Food, Atmosphere and Service more

Great bar, Great view, Great staff! 10/1/2006

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. Pros: Great food, Nice staff more

Can't beat the ambiance, but the food could be better 9/19/2006

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). Pros: atmosphere Cons: food more

Excellent restaurant 3/2/2006

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. Pros: Clean, great service, plenty of parking Cons: no dessert chef more

Awesome food, awesome atmosphere 11/25/2005

The food here is incredible, and amazingly affordable. You can take a date there and impress her during the evening. Some nights they have bands and you can hang out with all your friends. It seems like an odd mix, yet somehow they pull it off. Did I mention the food is great? more

Awesome Experience! 11/13/2005

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. Pros: Ample Parking, Knowledgable Staff, Amazing Food more

Mother's Day Let-down 5/8/2005

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! Pros: Good parking, Not crowded Cons: Poor service, Poor knowedge, Price vs. Quality more

Wonderful Restaurant 1/20/2004

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.... Pros: Service, Menu, Atmosphere more

  • Whether you choose Michaels for an intimate rehearsal dinner or reserve the entire eatery for a lavish gala, the meal will be accompanied by a chorus of mmms and ahhs. Chef Michael Clark began his decades-long culinary career in upscale European venues, but at his own place he focuses on cutting-edge comfort cuisineclassics like pork chops or crab cakes, enhanced with exciting gastronomic twists. For Michael, its all in the details, and since he insists upon superior ingredients, he sources the freshest and best of everything through a variety of local specialty vendors. Organic local produce and gourmet cheeses are staples. Bread is baked on the premises daily, and gluten-free options are available, too. Michaels is passionate about turning out exceptional desserts; their seasonal fresh fruit cobbler and ice cream sandwich simply knocked our socks offin fact, everything we tried dazzled our tastebuds!
