“Excellent seafood”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I came here for our wedding dinner and it was the perfect place. We got a great table by the open windows and had a great view of the sunset. The escargot appetizer was very good and we both had the seafood variety dinner (can't remember the name they had for it). I thought the food was excellent while she thought the entree was just pretty good. Service was very good as well.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

First timers and probably will not return. Seated at quite possibility the worst table in the place, Table 5 next to the waiters' station. Service was excellent, however the food was nothing spectacular. Diners next to us were allowed to bring their lap dog into the restaurant. Completely inappropriate and maybe even a health code violation???? Extremely disappointed.

“Stunning setting, great service, great food”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

You simply cannot beat the setting at Michel's - set right on the beach, this is the perfect place for a romantic dinner where you can enjoy great cocktails as you watch the sun set over Waikiki beach. The service is excellent, and the food is spectacular as well.

“Definitely Tops”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Excellent view, atmosphere, outstanding French food and service. This is a special occasion restaurant, definitely not your standard fare. Our waiter, Ekolu (E- ko -lu), was extremely knowledgeable, gathered the right information and made very good recommendations. We LOVED the food and the vibe, thanks to Bobby Nishida (solo jazz guitarist). We had an ocean side view which added to the romance of the night. Would have closed the place down if Bobby would have played on and we could have kept the escargot coming!

“Perfect!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I celebrated my birthday here and it could not have been more perfect! The view is absolutely spectacular - and we weren't even seated by the window. Every table has the view. Yes, as the sun set it was quite bright, but it didn't last long and was not an inconvenience. Watching the sunset and the lights of Waikiki come on was simply gorgeous. The food was fabulous. We enjoyed the escargot and then the lobster bisque prepared tableside. The chateaubriand was exquisite. And the crepes suzette were the best we have ever had (and having traveled to/lived in many places in the world, that says a lot!) I highly recommend this lovely restaurant!!
