We arrived a little early from a production close by. Though an hour early, we were seated immediately. Since there were only a very few patrons at the time, we were given immediate attention. We order the ribeye steaks with the turnip sauce, the house special salad, foie gras and chicken liver pate. I must say that this was one of the most amazingly great meals that I have had. The food was just that good. Although the plating left something to be desired. They did not split dishes to be shared or given considered giving smaller plates so that the dish could be shared. It was sort of arkward actually, and probably on the only thing that made for something less than desired. The portions were plenty and the food was so good! I will certainly recommend this place to anyone.

Enjoyed everything we ordered, the pre fixed meal is the perfect way to go. Many choices to pick from. We actually had increased our seating from 3 to 7 so we got to taste and see a good variety of the dishes. Service was top notch the staff is very accommodating. It was a very pleasant experience.

Excellent service from beginning to end. Had the prefixe menu $45 for appetizer, entree and dessert. Everything was great. Good value for your money. Had the broiled oyster (5), lamb chops and assorted dessert plate - lots of food. Easy parking in the back in the Hawaii National Bank lot for the dinner hours. Would highly recommend this restaurant for a nice quiet, quality meal.

The early courses were a little disappointing. We passed on the potato soup. The "homemade" bread consisted of dinner rolls that were very average. The Ahi Carpaccio was pretty good but could have used less greens. The dressing was very nice. What made the meal was the Rack of Lamb. It was the best that I've ever had anywhere. It was cooked to perfection and just melted in my mouth. The mushroom/mint sauce was out of bounds. Would definitely try it again sometime.

Good
Only complaint, 1. had to wait for wine to be chilled, not a big deal 2. Was told that desert plate did not have créme brulee so ended up ordering a separate cb (big), desert plate did have cb, had been told correctly would have gotten desert plate.

Our 3rd x here, scallops are to die for, steak I remember being better on previous visits.

Definitely going back....

I highly recommend Cafe Miro. The food was excellent and the wait staff was efficient, prompt and friendly.
My friend and I enjoyed every thing about the restaurant end especially because it is located in a quiet area away from the areas where the elite restaurants are located.

We will be back.

This place was a huge disappointment. The food was not worth the high price tag. We went on Valentine's Day and it was a prix fixe menu for $95 per person for 4 courses that were very small in size and low quality.

For the main course, I got opah-which I love-it came out within 5 minutes of the server asking me if it should be fired, so I was suspicious. It was lukewarm at best and waaay overcooked. They replaced it, and while the fish was at least not overcooked, it was so basic it was barely worth eating. The fish felt like it came out of a plastic bag pre-cut. The vegetables with it were a crappy vegetable medley that was cold both times and a weird square of potatoes au gratin; both were mushy. My husband got roast beef for the main course, which was two thin slices of beef and the same crappy vegetable medley and potatoes au gratin.

I've been to good French restaurants on the island, the mainland, and France-and this food wasn't French from my experience. I don't really know why this is considered a French restaurant.

The staff seemed nice and fairly attentive, but not attentive enough to ask me about my meal. I asked one server for a couple things at different times; he forgot every time I asked for something, forcing me to stop and get another server to get me the item I requested. I barely ate the food on my main course plate. No one bothered to ask if everything was okay or if they could get me something else. For the price point we were paying I expect higher quality service and more attentiveness from the staff regarding the quality of food and drinks we had.

So disappointed with this experience. I will never go here again.

We had a wonderful dinner. Excellent service. All food were superb, served at perfect timing with beautiful presentation and tasted so good. Volume was more than expected. Appetizer portion are so big, almost like a size of entree!! Started with a small cup of potate soup, it was very creamy and tasted wonderful.The special appetiser Pork was melting in your mouth. My boyfriend had rib steak as main, it was very tender and tasted so good even without sauce. My main, the Grilled fish had nice smokiness that I love. Sauteed veg was so tasty too, it was more than just a side on the plate. I will recommend CAFE MIRO to anyone. This place is a precious gem at the heart of Kaimuki!

We find that the appetizer were very good and good size. Not like the tiny portions you get at high end restaurants. Dressing was tasty too. As for the entrees, chicken was tender but the sauce could have more taste. The sides were small but tasty. We hoped that they were more. Fixed menus are good way to go. Good value. We will come back.

Personal opinion - food was slightly on the sweet side
my opah was good and not over cooked but the lamb’s was again was a bit gamey

Wonder if sweeter side because run by Japanese.

The music is nice, local feel and waiter accommodating but service very slow.

Price of course was a good deal

As there aren't many French restaurants on the island, we were pleasantly surprised to find this gem in the Kaimuki dining scene. Definitely a good price for what you get and everything was delicious. Service was a bit slow but with good company, you don't notice that much.
