We had the back room for my mom's birthday. The staff was warm and attentive. The food was fantastic. Wine was reasonably priced and paired well. This has become a family favorite and we'll be back.
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.
Everyone in our party enjoyed the experience and meal. Great value on the 3 and 4 course meals. We will be sure to return very soon.
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.
Wonderful French food with a Japanese touch. Very attentive staff. Warm ambiance with Miro art on the walls.
The food was excellent as usual and the service was good.
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.
Excellent French cuisine with a twist of Japanese, surprisingly compatible. They offer very good values on their set meals. Service is outstanding and very friendly. A great evening with quality food
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!
Food was very delicious overall.
Will be back. The price was very reasonable,too.
Just one thing, can not figure why they added tips for their kitchen staff on the tab? Very confusing!
Cafe Miro is never a disappointment, food, service, everything is always perfect. Highly recommended neighborhood jewel
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.
Friendly and cheerful atmosphere. Food is very good, and the restaurant is clean.
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
Great service and excellent price for the amount and quality of food served.
Services were not up to the level of fine dining. We felt like eating at a fast food cafe.
This is a hidden gem in Kaimuki. Everything about Café Miro was well-done. After seeing a fantastic movie at Kahala Mall, we made our way to Kaimuki and enjoyed a delightful and delicious meal. We'll be back! The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable too.
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.
I felt good！But I want to be evolved 15years ago.I feel a little disappointed about that.
Amazing food and service. Wait time for entree was a bit long but the food was awesome. Foigras-don is indeed a masterpiece! Very attentive waitstaff.
Excellent service and food.
Had a lovely New Years Eve dinner
We will see you all soon
Exquisite service and food. Wine pricey, and we would have liked to have been offered a refill of our small cups of decaf coffee...
We'll definitely be going again for another special occasion.
Sort of tacky place with plastic table cloths. We sat down and before we could order a drink they asked if we were ready to order our meals.
Not exactly fine dining.
Guess with a special holiday prie fix menu most item prepped way too early
I would not call this a fusion restaurant, but more of a French restaurant with Japanese influences, where the influences can be found in the ingredients (Hokkaido scallops, daikon sauce, wasabi sauce) while the preparation/presentation is closer to French. You basically order from a prix fixe menu: The Soleil option gives you 1 appetizer choice, 1 entree choice, and one dessert choice; The Plaisir option adds an additional appetizer choice. All of the food was tasty and the service was fast, friendly and excellent. Parking is in the lot behind the restaurant (the bank stalls are supposedly available at night) or on the street. The atmosphere is casual, not stuffy like a fancy French restaurant. Cafe Miro is highly recommended!
5 stars all the way. Consistently high quality !!
Delicious fare. Our party of 6 had 4 different entrees and all reported the food to be excellent. Portions were just right. The vischsoisse amuse bouche was a final that we were in for a wonderful gastronomic experience! The staff was attentive, patient and very professional.
Excellent food & service!
As always the food and service was excellent. Recommend for any special occasion.
Great food and service!
Menu was somewhat limited. They were out of their fresh catch at 7pm. The restaurant was not crowded, so makes you wonder if they had it at all that evening.
If you are a bit cheaper,you want to go frequently
We had never been to this iconic restaurant although we've passed it many times in Kaimuki over the 11 years they've been open. They serve French cuisine by a Japanese chef, Shigeru Kobayashi. After celebrating an annual Christmas dinner with high school friends in a nice private room in the back of the restaurant, we returned the following week to dine with family. A week later, we took some friends who enjoy good food. The wait staff remembered us and provided excellent service. The menu is ala carte or prix fixe with choices right off the ala carte menu. The fresh oysters were a big hit. The lamb, scallop, and grilled opah were also favorites. Probably not the best place to eat steak. Their tasting plates are a good way to try a little of everything (appetizer and dessert plates are offered). The value is great for the amount and quality of food you receive. Free parking is in the back.
Food was wonderful. Well flavored but not overpowering. Staff is nice and helpful. Not snooty. Great neighborhood restaurant. If you want a dark romantic dinner maybe not; but if you want a great experience with great food and service, this is it. Casual. No need to dress up.
Very reasonably priced for the quality and quantity of food.
The appetizer, soup and dessert were amazing. We were, however, disappointed with the entree (sole and opah). The fish was fine, but the butter sauce was too heavy for us. Service was great. I would go back and ask for the sauce on the side.
Bravo, Cafe Miro!
We celebrated our wedding anniversary there primarily because we had a gift certificate; what a wonderful neighborhood restaurant! The attention to detail, imaginative and tasty dishes and the wonderful service made our celebration all the more special; Bravo, Cafe Miro! We will be back!
