This is my favorite restaurant in waikiki and maybe the world. It might be the place I would choose for my last meal. The table side service is sensational for Caesar salad and flaming cherries jubilee which we always get whenever we come here. We also had the fish in papiotte and it was superb You just can't find this... More

Have eaten here from 1985 to the present and the ambiance and location is truly the best. Service is excellent and it is a wonderful, albeit expensive process. Food is limited in a way and had the seafood platter which was very mediocre but wife had the steak that was excellent and guest the foie gras that was superb. Oysters... More

Fish stew was superb as was my husbands fish. I was afraid the place was all pyrotechnics but the meal proved otherwise. The most expensive meal we had at Waikiki because the wine cost much more per glass. Try Hau Kai Tree $46 and drive to Nazan GiroGiro where chefs cook gourmet Japanese meal fixed menu 6 courses $59 each.

Let me begin by saying that the view is outstanding and the wine list, superb, hence the 2 Stars. Sadly, the food and service could not resuscitate this restaurant. The waiter approached in a suit sorely in need of a good dry cleaning. We ordered a lovely Meursault to pair with our Caesar. A cart was ceremoniously brought to our... More

We first dined at Michel's on our tenth wedding anniversary. As we were celebrating our fiftieth anniversary of meeting on a blind date in Waikiki, we decided to do it again. I reserved early and we got a ocean side table at 6:00 to view the glorious sunset. Our waiter was excellent and service was attentive without being intrusive. We... More

Enjoyed a wonderful evening at Michel's in Honolulu with a spectacular view of the sunset and later fireworks. This is one of Honolulu's older quality restaurants. Our experience was excellent. A place cannot stay successful as long at Michel's if the food and service are not consistently outstanding. We has excellent service and an outstanding meal. I highly recomend Michel's... More

My husband and I had a lovely meal our last night in Oahu.The setting was very romantic and the Ahi tuna melted in your mouth. The service was attentive as well. This was our first trip but not our last - we will go back to Michel's on our next trip.

We went to Honolulu for Christmas/ New Years celebrations. Decided to go to some of the "best" restaurants (and went, check our other reviews). This one was a complete deception. We went to christmas dinner (24th). The place is beautiful, but service, food and everything else BELOW average. We were attracted to this restaurant by other trip advisors review (done... More

The restaurant has an amazing view. We went about 6:00pm to watch the sunset. Spectacular. The food was good, I don't know if it met my expectations, but it was the last night of our trip and we had the most wonderful waitress/server. Would go again for sure.
