料理のボリュームがかなりあって食べ応えがありました。
サービスも細かくテーブルを気にしてくれました。
味も満足。いい食事ができました。サンセットの時間からだんだん暗くなるとワイキキの夜景を見れるのでとてもいいロケーションだとおもいます。

The best restaurant for a romantic Dinner for two or a group of friends celebrating a special occasion or just their friendship! Amazing ambience directly by the ocean, which means spectacular sunsets most of the days.
Excellent food and wine and very professional and friendly staff. Chef Hardy and the Manager came over to greet us which was a very nice touch to a perfect Valentine’s Day dinner. Last but not least, Jeff Peterson, an amazing super talented guitarist, performed beautifully to complete a most enjoyable evening!

We went to Michel's for Valentine's Day and were surprised that they were only serving a special menu at $150 per person. We were disappointed because we were looking forward to some if the regular menu items. There was no mention of this on their website. Because I have celiac disease they were able to make some limited adjustments to my dinner. Most of it was tasty, but they replaced the chowder with an inedible mushroom soup. The main course was a tough, overcooked, unrecognizable steak and the smallest lobster tail I have ever seen. The steak was awful and the server was unable to tell me what cut of meat was being served. Our $100 bottle of wine was a screw top cheap wine. Dinner for two ended up costing $600 for a less than mediocre meal. We wouldn't mind paying that much for a great fine dining experience, but this did not live up to our expectations. It is really troubling that a restaurant of this calibre would serve inferior food at an inflated price for a special holiday dinner. I love good French food so I was extremely disappointed.

A stone throw away from the breaking waves Michel's is one of the most romantic restaurants in Hawaii. Quality of the food is excellent, great service and outstanding ambiance. I always enjoy the extensive wine list, where I manage to find diamonds in the rough on occasion. Prices are expectantly high, but well worth the experience.

Very disappointed in the overall dining experience. The lobster bisque was just so so. For the cost I would not recommend. Too many other great places to dine! Next door at the New Otani-Hau tree is awesome! Friendly, beautiful ambience and great food!

コースを注文しました。
基本的には美味しいですが、ハワイ風(サラダにフルーツなど)
は慣れない味でしたが、美味しかったです。
窓際の席が空いたからと、移動させていただいたり
英語は少ししかできないのですが、日本語の話せる方に接客していただいたりと、ハネムーンでの素敵な思い出となりました!
今回はサンセットの時間に予約が取れなかったので
次回はサンセットを眺めながら食事をしたいです。
2人で320ドル程でした。※チップ別
雰囲気もロケーションも素敵なお店なので
ハネムーンや特別な食事などにおススメです

The character of Michel's has changed over the years. And it seems larger and less intimate than 10 years ago. And the noise level was greater this time. The servers were good but not as excellent as last time. It is still a fine restaurant and the Chef is amazing!

This was our second time at Michel’s. Our first experience was great but this time it was major disappointment. Service was too slow, tables were so cramped and our food was cold when they served it. For the money we paid it was extremely disappointing. Overrated. If we come to Hawaii again, we will not go again.

何回めかの訪問でしたが
今回はお客様の多さにビックリしました。
詰め込み過ぎの感も強く
日本人観光客に知れ渡り「日本人ならいい、喜ぶ」と思ったのか
横並びの席が用意され、私共もそこに案内されましたが
「海外で並び席はない」(この店舗形式で)だろうし
「年齢的にも、ゆっくり向かい席で食事を楽しみたかった」です。
大好きなお店なので、少しだけ残念でした。

Service was poor. We ordered the cioppino and it was inedible: the sauce was toooo spicy.

Oysters were fantastic, ambiance is wonderful with open windows to the sea.

Overall we were very dissatisfied and disappointed. Too bad as we had a wonderful meal at New Year’s Eve.

We may try one more time, but for the price everything should be impeccable.

Second but equal, the food and table-side preparation were wonderful. They succeed at providing nostalgia and top quality cuisine. We were wondering if this kind of restaurant would hold up after all these year and were very pleasantly surprised!

I would not dine here again. The view is really lovely and the wine selection is on the better side of Waikiki dining but the dining room is quite outdated. The food was horrible. Outdated menu with disappointing quality of food. I don’t mind at all spending money on great food and wine especially if the atmosphere is nice, but I would recommend to not waste your money dining here.

食事の数日前に予約しました。夕日を見たくて予約しましたが、日時が日時だったので、席は期待しておりませんでしたが、窓際2列目で、素晴らしい景色をみることができました。
雰囲気もお店の方も素晴らしく、またぜひ行きたいと思いました。
ドレスコードはありますが、堅苦しいイメージではありません。和やかな雰囲気のなか、食事を楽しむことができます。

オアフ島を訪れる予定が立つと
OpenTable🅾️で予約しています。
今まで3回訪れて、創作的な料理、
ギャルソンの対応、店の雰囲気が
期待を裏切ったことはありませんでした。
そして今回、初めて夫婦だけで
静かな時間を過ごすことができました。
注文するメニューは殆ど決まっていて、
オニオンスープ、
エスカルゴ、シーザーサラダ、
メインディッシュ(その日のお勧めを
いただく)
食後にお腹に余裕があれば、
デザートを頂き、お腹いっぱいであれば
アメリケーヌコーヒーで締めます。
それから、店の奥から
砂浜に出てお店を振り返ることで
思い出を脳裏に残します。
