Michael's on Main in Soquel, California offers cutting-edge comfort cuisine, a fresh take on classic favorite dishes. We take great pride in working with local vendors and serve organic produce whenever possible. <br /><br />The ambiance at Michael's on Main is warm and inviting. Indoor spaces are decorated with rotating works by local artists; outdoor seating overlooks beautiful Soquel Creek. Our bar offers an extensive list of local wines and beer and live music weekly (and there's never a cover charge!)

"We have eaten at Michaels several times, but only for lunch...and have thoroughly enjoyed it.
This time we ate on a Tuesday evening and were disappointed. My pork was delicious, but my husband's fish was said to be grilled, but it was quite heavily breaded and overcooked.
Our server was inattentive. We had to ask for water refills and it took a while to get our bill. There was a long wait between servings, but perhaps there was a problem with the kitchen that night.
The problem could not be blamed on a busy night because there were very few people there."
