All in all, great dining experience. We had a group of 11 so had a private room. That was perfect.
The dessert was ok. The starters and entree’s were very good to excellent. Service was excellent.
I would go back.
Take notice-they add 4% for the kitchen. So we added 16% more.

Café Miro provides delicious French food and attentive, personable service in a comfortable, laid-back atmosphere. Unlike most fine-dining restaurants, Café Miro isn't stuffy. All your attention can be concentrated on their amazing menu and the company of those at your table. It's a family-friendly hole-in-the-wall, and I can't wait to return! (Big MAHALO to Ryan and the rest of the wait staff for making dinner an event to remember!)

This was our second time at Café Miro and both were fabulous. The food is creative, the service is excellent, the ambiance is comfortable.

The first time was a birthday party for my father's 95th and they were wonderful and we found then that the ADA accessibility really worked.

This time, they did a wonderful job of turning their big tables in to tables for 2 on Valentine's Day that really worked. Yes, we were at a big table, shared across some space with another couple, but we felt like we were at our own table.

What they need to do is to provide a good online menu for special events in advance and to update their menu for regular days.

We will go back SOON, I hope.

We came here for Valentines day for a nice romantic dinner away from the kids. This is a nice, cozy restaurant with excellent food. Though I must say the parking situation sucks. There is a parking lot in the back (the bank's parking lot), which was full. There are a few stalls on Waialae, or you can try and park on the side streets (good luck with that).

For Valentines, they had a $90 pre fixe menu. There were 5 courses, and we had a lot of food in those courses. Everything was delicious and well prepared. I can't think of any dish that was disappointing. I absolutely loved the lamb entree that I had. I would have licked the plate clean if it was socially acceptable. And my wife's opah was also excellent, though I am a sucker for yuzu.

Although I am lactose intolerant to a certain degree, this menu didn't make my stomach go crazy. Surprising considering that every single course had cream in it (most of them quite a lot). The food was good enough that I though it was worth the inevitable punishment that would come later. Glad it didn't come, though. It was a lot of food, we both left more than stuffed.

Service was okay. It seems that they work as a team. We kept on having different servers helping us an dropping off food. It was a little weird at first, but we eventually figured it out. The servers seemed knowledgeable and were quick to answer questions about the menu.

On the way to the bathroom, I noticed a separate room, like a private dining room. In this room was a few tables with families (ie little kids). While I can't say that I support segregation, I appreciated the kid-free dining room. I have kids of my own, I know how they can be!

All in all, this was a very good dining experience. I will definitely be back again.

My husband and I enjoy Cafe Miro very much. Excellent meals at reasonable prices. It is definitely not geared to the swinging singles scene but if you want a relaxed atmosphere where you can actually enjoy a conversation with your dinner companions, this is a good choice. Nice wine list and the beer list has been expanded recently. We will return again to Cafe MIro. The pan fried seafood salad appetizer is to die for.......... likewise my favorite entree scallops in a very light curry sauce.......... followed by the mixed plate dessert which offers small portions of 4 different things.

This was a pleasant reprieve from the Kalakaua expensive and touristy places, and set back a few miles, is clearly where “the locals go”. However the food was excellent, small but fairly priced wine list and cocktails at prices that were prevalent many yrs ago. Service also quite good a plenty of servers eager to please. The downside is a space a tad dated with plastic table cloths, and one that needs a paint job. It is certainly pleasant enough, however, unless one relies heavily on glitzy surroundings. One of the best entrees in my five nights in Waikiki for a fair price, so spend the ten dollar uber fare to check it out !

We have been coming to Cafe Miro for decades and we always enjoy Chef Kobayashi French cooking skill . His GM Ryan always makes our evening enjoyable with impeccable attention to details & Service ; especially since we always come with a large group and eager to finish on time for our next group activities after dinner.
The menu is very good and always with a uniform excellent standard . The only suggestion to add is to have the menu includes 2 to 3 monthly specials ( and be a bit more adventuresome & creative in this regard to show the Mind of the Chef ; that will be the difference between a very good chef versus a great chef ! )

I've always enjoyed coming here for special occasions. This last visit for a birthday that fell on New Year's Eve was a little disappointing with the 5 course menu. First off, we mentioned that my bf doesn't like wasabi, which was listed as a ingredient for one of the main courses, so no wasabi sauce for him. Then we discovered that we had 2 different menus with different main course options. Waiter explained that the lamb was only going to be served if they ran out of an entree. So why did we have the menu?!? He went in to check and told us we can order the lamb. Great!
The first course that came out was a soba noodle. Not knowing that there were wasabi in it, my bf got a mouthful of the wasabi sauce and ruined his first impression of the place. It took us at least 4-5 minutes to flag down someone to let them know. They ended up substituting with a vichyssoise soup. I understand that our waiter might be new, but he should at least know what he was serving. The second course was brought out by a different server. There was no explanation of what we had on the plate with 5-6 various bite sized items. It was a guessing game for a couple of them.
Bf got the steak without the wasabi sauce, and I had the lamb for the main course. Steak was good per bf, but the lamb was delicious! I think that was the highlight of the meal for sure. We closed the restaurant and they were nice to not say anything about them being closed.
I would definitely come back and will assume that they were slammed for New Years Eve.

Even though it was a simple menu tonight, food was very good! Taste, prepared right, but the service was not on point tonight. Could it be not so experienced servers? Staff was triple that of a normal night, but lacked in many areas of service. But still, it's Christmas Eve.

The only disappointed surprise in compare 4 years ago; they do not offer BYO options; even their web-site say so; now they are charging USD 25.00 for one bottle. I hope they can update their information accordingly
