Everything about this place was very nice. However, the prices are very expensive and i just didn't feel like the cost was proportionate to the value.

My wife and I make dinner at Michel’s a must every trip to Honolulu. It has a special place in our lives and we hosted our wedding night dinner there 6 years ago. Always pleased with the service, the food and there is not a place on Oahu with a more spectacular view.

注文していない商品が会計時に含まれていた。

注文していないICED HARVESTがテーブルに到着し、注文していないと伝えてところウェイターからサービスと伝えられたため、喜んで食事を継続、その後注文したエスカルゴが到着しないまま時間が経過しデザートのメニュー表を渡された段階で、注文したエスカルゴが到着していない旨を伝え、確認してもらったところオーダーが通っていないとの事。
会計時の伝票を見たところサービスだと伝えられていたICED HARVEST、58$ドルが請求されていた為、日本語がわかるスタッフ(責任者)に伝えたところ「金額が高い商品なだけにサービスはありえない」「誤注文だとしても食べてる以上は支払ってもらう」「次回来店時は注文に無いものが来たら例えサービスでも食べないでください」と言われ、最後まで謝罪の一言もなくとても不愉快な食事でした。

料理と景観が良いだけにとても残念な食事でした。

My girlfriends and I celebrated a big brthday here this past week. Excellent tableside service for Caesar salad, Chateaubriand, Steak Diane and Bananas Foster. Incredible live music and sounds of the ocean, lapping on the beach. Truly special all the way around.

Old-School classic French with table-side preparations of Steak Diane, Steak Tartare, Lobster and Cherrie Jubilee. The view is hands down the finest in Waikiki. None of the youngster restaurants can match the class and elegance...arrive early about 5:30 for best tables. And don’t complain about the expense, just be grateful these establishments still exist!

Absolutely loved our dining experience. We came here on our honeymoon and everything about it was perfect. The food, drinks, service and setting was all outstanding. My husband and I both have dietary requirements and they catered for this incredibly well. We would highly recommend.

This was better than previous visits. The setting is great, and the cold seafood platter was terrific. Also the mixed drinks were more sophisticated than usual. All in all, this is a wonderful place to visit, even if it requires quite a hike from the Waikiki hotels. (That hike is through Kapiolani Park, which is quite pleasant.)

事前の電話対応の日本人(日本語)スタッフが最低最悪でした。
なぜミッシェルズがこんな人を雇ってるのか不思議です。
日本人スタッフ>>>>>>>客なんでしょうか。
横柄であり、上から目線、全ての言葉のチョイス、言い回し、捉え方、全てにおいて性格の悪さが出てる。
有り得ない言い方をされました。
こちらは敬語なのに。
この人のせいで行きたくなかったです。
ラメール、オーキッズ、アランウォンズその他同等のレストランにはこんなレベルのスタッフは存在しないですね。

当日の担当サーバー、料理は良かったのにほんと残念です。

二度と行かないです。

The menu and restaurant looks like it hasn’t changed since the 70s. Most clients are elderly The food was fine but not notable. We were there on Christmas Eve. And I understand that the staff would rather be home but they were waiting for us to finish to put down the next course. At $150 per person try a different place

The service (table-side cooking) was fantastic.
However, the main entree wasn't worth the price.

Dinner at Michel's brings back fond memories, so maybe I was expecting too much this visit. It has been about 10 years since I visited last. In 10 years many new restaurants have popped up in Honolulu with exciting flavors and top notch food, so this may be why Michel's didn't deliver as highly as I had hoped. Or maybe we ordered the wrong things. We ordered the famous lobster bisque, which was made table side...and it was made table side too many times that evening because you could taste char in the soup. I'm not sure if that was purposeful or not, but I was not a fan. I convinced my husband to order chateaubriand with me (minimum of two orders) because I loved it back in the day. He was not impressed. My daughter enjoyed the lobster newburg/beef dish, and my Dad enjoyed his cioppino. The caesar salad was tasty as well. Maybe my husband and I ordered the wrong things, or maybe Michel's needs to better perfect their offerings to keep customers coming with those premium prices.

Much nicer than I expected though a little more formal. Obviously a special night out for most, although fairly casual attire seemed welcome. A kindler gentler alternative to LaMer where men must wear a dinner jacket. Our waiter Joel was very good. Lots of table side service. Thanks!

We visit Michel every from London UK. The staff and the food never disappoint us. Only the downside was the room we have seated traps all the smokes from customers steaks that have been prepared in front of the customers. Thanks again and we will definitely come back next year !
