“Good food, great service, spectacular view”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Had dinner with some co workers on Friday. The dinner was a pre-set 5 course menu. The steamed onaga was prepared with ginger and somen noodles. The fish was tender, juicy and cooked to perfection. The tenderloin was also cooked perfectly with a slice of foie gras which had a crispy crust and soft, smooth texture inside. A drizzle of berries on the steak with crunch green beans and a pickled vegetable. The food was awesome! The wait staff was very attentive and constantly kept our water glasses fillled and our drinks and wine glasses freshly poured. The staff was unobtrusive and very professional. The ambience, the view of the ocean and the Waikiki skyline in the distance is spectacular. That view is unbeatable! Topping it all off were the fireworks off Waikiki beach that happens every friday around 7:45pm. Dinner ended with cherries jubilee and bananas foster prepared tableside. All in all it was a beautiful dinner and I would definitely recommend Michels for a special evening. Well done.

Very good food and service. Best restaurant I tried in hawaii. You can see the sunset and the view of Waikiki from your table. The Caesar salad was delicious

“For that special night”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

My wife and I went here for our last night in Honolulu. So glad we did. Read mixed reviews but we could not fault the place. Service and food was exemplary as we wine list.
I would recommend the 6 course degustation menu-a taste of the best restaurant has to offer.
Book a table next to the window and be there for sunset with someone you care about.

“excellent with a fabulous view of waikiki”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

This was our first visit to Michel's,another open air restaurant, and we all enjoyed it, the service was very friendly and attentive without being over the top, the wine list was fantastic and I was delighted that I could have a half bottle of chateauneuf de pape with my meal, my friends were all drinking white, the food was excellent and view at night very nice, one little thing, turn down the lights it would create a little more atmosphere it was a bit bright other than that I will return.
