We went for our anniversary and had a great meal. I am a bad person to review because this is the fanciest meal we ever ate. Tips: Go during sunset and ask to sit close to the music. The view of the skyline was amazing
It was really good and nice to splurge. Drinks: I had the mule and it was great. My wife had a tropical drink and liked hers as well. Appetizers: She did the onion soup and it was really good and rather large. I had the escargot and it was ok, there was so much butter and garlic I couldn't taste the escargot. She did the steak Diane and it was cooked tableside and was really nice. I got the seafood plate and it was excellent. Ranked in order: scallop, ahi, prawn, lobster, mahi. We also got bananas foster and it was ok, I didn't care for the orange peel and citrus taste but that is probably just me.
Overall it was a fantastic experience and I would love to go back.
This was a terrible experience! We were celebrating our Engagement and was expecting a phenomenal time as this restaurant highlights special occasions. When we arrived the waiter came to the table brung us water and walked away. He told us nothing about the restaurant, the specials of the evening, suggest a wine. It felt like I was at a Chinese take out restaurant. We order the table side lobster bisque and it was burnt with no other flavor. The mashed potatoes came out cold. After sending 2 items back still no manager came by to check on us. Finally at the end of the disaster still no mention of our celebration. The waiter was not up to par on fine dining and was talking to us as if we were at a take out. He had no wine knowledge or steps of service and the table side was terrible . This was a terrible experience and absolutely ruined my engagement weekend!!!! Food was terrible, waiter was awful and manager was lackluster.!!!
We dined here two years ago when visiting and were excited to come back. Michel’s did not disappoint. Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. We will be back again 😊
Known as a romantic venue, Michel's provides outstanding service in a beautiful setting, but the prices are sky-high, especially the bar bill.
Old fashioned classic restaurant with a bit of a clip joint flavor. Prices are high even for Waikiki but you expect that. Table side prep of Caesar salad and crepes suzette are more about show than food. Food generally good but my chicken and prawn entree while well-cooked was swimming in way too much brown sauce that bore no particular relation to the food it accompanied. Kind of place an older gent might take a young date to impress her. View is spectacular and overall an okay experience but once every 5 years would be plenty.
Fantastic restaurant. You must try it. Sunset and fireworks view. Closest restaurant to the ocean. Amazing food and service.
The restaurant has it all. It was an amazing experience from walking in the door. Celebrating our 20 anniversary and wanted something special. Staff somehow found out (friend called in) and celebrated quietly with us. So special and appreciated as they were welcoming. Jackie was our server and so fun. Congratulations to a business that focuses on doing it right from start to finish. You all nailed it!
Location is wonderful with clear views of the nearby ocean with its surf and activities. Staff is exceptionally deceiving,friendly and helpful. Steak Diane was cooked table and was MARVELOUS from both a taste and “show” perspective. Their house red complimented the meal very nicely and their crane brûlée was exceptional. Wonderful evening from all perspectives.
Perfect evening and meal. Service perfect and received a desert for my birthday.
This was a remarkable experience. We were able to not only watch one of our dishes be prepared table side, but throughout the evening perhaps six more at other tables. Our waiter was exemplary, and the food was priced far lower than the high-end restaurant in Hilton Hawaiian Village.
Wonderful classic restaurants. Will return
Wonderful food, service and ambiance right on Waikiki beach. Can’t ask for more. We got lucky in the fact that we were in town on the one day a month they do Sunday brunch.
Menu changes monthly with best sellers from previous month remaining and new items added. Great ambiance and very good service although there were a couple of hiccups this time.
Best location in Honolulu for a dinner. The seafood is always very good quality in terms of ingredients. The kids meals are better than most adult meals at other places. They have lots of dishes prepared at the table like Caesar salad or crepes suzette which is a nice show. The menu is old fashioned but well prepared so no problem. We go here a lot so really enjoy it. The best part is the view/ambiance especially if your table is against the outside wall which is open to the beach. Service is old fashioned good service
Excellent, as always!
This wasn’t our first time here. We’ve been here many times before. It was my wife’s bday dinner. Food, sunset and service were excellent. I must point out that our server, J, was FANTASTIC. We really enjoyed how attentive and responsive she was. We will definitely return.
Amazing food! Highly recommended!
The restaurant was very beautiful, service was great and foods were good plus wine selection is really nice. I clearly requested a table facing the waterfront, but they seated us away from the waterfront, saying tables near waterfront are supposed to be booked at least 6 months ahead of time. I was very disappointed because it was a very important business dinner with one of the famous chefs in Honolulu. The worst thing was that the hostess told me when I was walking to the rest room "Oh, I did not not know the chef would be with you. You should have told us who would be coming with, then we could have seated you at the table right by the waterfront. The reservation was made under your name whom we were not familiar with". What ? So, this restaurant clearly differentiates their service level depending upon who is coming. I will probably come back to this restaurant if and when I become famous in town.
Our 2nd time here. This time with a group of 6. Outstanding remains an understatement. Food and drinks amazing. Johnny prepares cocktails that will delight all your senses. Its a fantastic evening.
Been coming for over 30 years, wow did everything fall apart. Sat for over 15 minutes and no came to our table.
Only after I got up did a waiter come by. Ceasar Salald no flavor. Cold seafood platter tasteless. Mr Shaw
Give me his card and said next time, last time I heard that in Honolulu the restaurant went out of business.
What a fall from the top. Never could figure out the wooden chop sticks in a white table cloth establishment.
This was my 6th visit to Michels. It’s always outstanding with the best ambiance and food on the island! The service is perfect! Can’t wait to return again!
Tremendous service, delicious food and a special opportunity to meet the GM, Mr. Shaw, whose kindness elevated our overall experience even further. We are grateful to have shared such a special meal in a place where the staff are respected , encouraged to continue to learn, and where customer experience is truly the paramount focus.
Best restaurant in the island! Views are incredible. Must book your table for sunset. Order the lobster bisque, it’s fabulous. Also, grand marnier soufflé.
Not just dinner, Michels is an experience. The view is fabulous and everything, food, drinks, service is impeccable. It is worth every penny. It is a very special atmosphere & the staff is especially knowledgeable & friendly..
We were in Honolulu for our 30th Wedding Anniversary (travelling from Australia ) and I had booked Michel’s online and advised it was a special occasion and if we could have a table overlooking the beach. We were seated at a beautiful table overlooking the beach and were also able to see some fireworks that were in Waikiki.
The 3 course meal that we had was faultless, the service was on point and a good wine list.
We would highly recommend Michel’ and if we are ever back we will be back,
Frank & Therese
James was a wonderful waiter, very attentive and informative . Thanks for making dinner terrific.
always happy to dine at Michel's. beautiful setting , view and sunset, excellent wine list.
Amazing food, great service from our waiter Joel! Great table
We really enjoyed eating here. The food was great and service was even better. Excellent choice for a date night or special occasion.
The seafood was very good and our server was so friendly and prompt. We were sat at one of the only tables without a view, but the restaurant is elegant in a vintage 70s way. There were patrons at a table a few tables away who were streaming loud videos on their phones clearly disturbing other customers (us included). Would have been nice if the management had politely asked them to put them away, or at least put earphones on. Kind of ruined the latter part of our meal.
The food and service were outstanding as usual. Try one of the flaming desserts - they’re all amazing!
