Seven of us celebrated two birthdays a few nights ago and we were all jazzed about dining at Michele's. The host was friendly and welcoming and unfortunately after that it was pretty much downhill. Our reservation was at 6:30 and the place was packed which probably accounted for the less than stellar service we expected from Michele's. He was busy... More

In my opinion, this is the best restaurant in Waikiki. The food is some of the best to be found anywhere and you would have to work very hard to find a better view. Michel's sits right on the beach and the open air setting is perfect. The bar selection is excellent and the wait staff is superb! This is... More

Traditionally we've chosen to end our visits to O'ahu at John Domani's but with the demise of that restaurant we thought we'd return (after a 15-20 year gap) to Michel's where we'd experienced an amazing meal before. In Waikiki a lot of places have a great view but few deliver a 5-star meal that matches. Michel's did not disappoint and... More

This restaurant has it all, great food, great beachside location, plus it's quiet and relaxing, a luxury in Waikiki. The service was friendly and attentive. Decor a bit OTT with dark timbers and elaborate touches, but it did not spoil a lovely evening.

We had dinner here for a special occasion. I made a reservation about a month out and we had a perfect table right along the window. A great wine list, perfect service, delicious dinner, beautiful sunset, and spectacular fireworks down the beach! What more could you ask for?!

I booked a family birthday after eating at Michel's over 30 years ago and I wasn't disappointed. The atmosphere was great, the view was breathtaking and the food was delicious. Our waiter was very attentive and the host gave a great recommendation on wine. My guests and I agreed it was the best Pinot Noir ever tasted. We started with... More

We booked Michel's for our wedding dinner after tying the knot on the beach at Waialae Beach Park. There were six of us in the party and we were seated at a table at the end of the restaurant with an amazing view right down Waikiki Beach to the hotels at the very end. Our waiter was very attentive and... More

One of our wedding gifts was cash and a recommendation to visit Michel's at sunset. Well, let's just we're very grateful for that recommendation! The service was brilliant (so attentive), the food amazing and satisfying, and the view... unforgettable. This will always be one of the best memories of our honeymoon, and we recommend it to anyone looking for a... More

Impeccable...that's all I can say. We received royal treatment from the door to the check and beyond. Nick was excellent and the food was superb! View was awesome. Well done one and all!
