Michel's is worth the expense for the views, the ambiance, and the music alone. There is no finer view of the beach and sunset in Waikiki. And Jeff Peterson at the guitar is amazing. When you hear him play -- whether it's Hawaiian music, classical Spanish, or mellow and smooth jazz classics -- you may just feel that you have... More

There is nothing wrong with selecting a dining venue for the atmosphere or the view, and that must certainly be the case with Michel's, situated at the far east end of Waikiki Beach (technically, it's beyond Waikiki). However, in choosing a restaurant for one feature, you have a right to expect that its other aspects (food, service, etc.) are at... More

This was our second visit to Michel's. We were with a large group and were seated in a lovely room with a spectacular view. Our wait staff was fabulous. Julio was with us once again and is charming and efficient. Our food was exceptional. The wine list is fantastic and our choices were available and wonderful! The evening was quite... More

We had booked online about 1 1/2 months before our desired date and requested a window table for 4 at sunset and happily we were accommodated. Unfortunately, it was overcast out so the sunset we hoped for did not happen. But still the ocean view was spectacular. From when we seated to when our drinks arrived was about 30 min,... More

We always make it a point to visit Michel's as we know the setting, service and Food Quality are tops. We had asked for a special table and were given a window table instead, we were able to change to a booth and were lucky that we got "Kim" as our server, she was extremely attentive and knowledgable, knew the...

This is not only number one in this City it is truly one of the finest restaurants in the world. Ask for a window table at Sunset for an extra special experience. The food and service are the best! We have never had a bad meal or poor service. Yes, it is not inexpensive so it is not for everyone.... More

Impeccable service and food with precise presentations. Many table side prepared dishes done with flair and delicious results, like the spinach salad. The view is spectacular and the staff is extremely well trained. We will be back many times!

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
