Our family of 5 came to celebrate my dad’s 78th birthday—we had a great time! The service was impeccable (as always) and the food divine. Two of us had the mahi-mahi, two of us split the chateaubriand, and the fifth had the N.Y. strip. Every dish was wonderful. The chocolate soufflés at the end were superb as well. An excellent experience!

The view is AMAZING almost with the price of the meal alone. Service is exceptional. Staff is well trained and anticipate you every need. We had high expectations for the food. Fresh ingredients prepared well with great presentation. It tasted bland and assembly line ish. We are going back post Covid and give them another shot.

Dined in for my partner's birthday. Wonderful service from Royce! Everything was clean and proper health/safety measures were enforced. We enjoyed the 'A Taste of Michel's' and everything was delicious. Great place to have a romantic evening!

Michel's provides a dining and service experience with a beautiful ocean view. Food is consistently top notch in quality, and the staff is most professional. It's a must-do restaurant if one wants fine dining in Hawaii.

It’s my first time here to celebrate my birthday. Many of my friends recommend it and I heard it’s great for special occasion.
I had the most amazing experience and truly made my night special. Our server kalani (I think that’s his name) gave us excellent service throughout our dinner. He was very welcoming, professional and kind. We had lot of laughter & fun during our conversation. He often offer to take our picture! I am very happy and enjoy my celebration at Michel. I highly recommend it’s a very romantic restaurant with beautiful ocean view, outstanding service and very delicious food. I had the chef course menu set.
Will definitely be back again soon for another special occasion!

We were so glad to hear that Michel’s has resumed their once monthly Sunday brunch even during these COVID times. We had such a lovely Sunday brunch, enjoying the spectacular beachfront setting. The brunch menu was amazing, with many options to choose from. All items were simply divine. Service was outstanding; our server, Jenna, was friendly and delightful. Michel’s continues to be an icon in beachfront dining. Always memorable, exceeding every expectation.

We went to Michel’s for our 8th anniversary and the was food was plated beautifully although it was a little bland, it was very enjoyable. The views were my favorite and I really took pleasure in their cocktails, the sunrise margarita was my favorite! If your looking for a romantic evening, this is definitely the place overlooking Waikiki, our reservation was at 6pm so we had a chance to witness one of the most beautiful sunsets as well. Dessert was very rich and full of flavor!

This was a perfect evening, our waiter Jahndi(sp?) was awesome. Very knowledgeable about the food and very attentive in service. It was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. We are very excited to go back and try some of the other great dishes.
Our chateaubriand was delicious and we loved the mushroom chowder. Jahndi recommended the chocolate souffle and it was light and delicious. Good job to all of you and "special thank you" to the Chef.

I came here with high hopes and was not disappointed at all. The view alone was amazing. Service by the staff was one of the best I’ve been too and the food is nothing short of amazing. Happy that I choose this place for a date night that was long overdue. 10/10 would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to have a nice romantic night out.

Anniversary dinner at Michel's could not have been better. Enjoyed not only the Taste of Michel's menu, but the wonderful presentation. Portions were, of course, small, but excellent, and by the time dessert rolls around, it's hard to fit in that last course! Courteous and prompt service. And what a wonderful view of the beach and the paddleboarders. So glad we chose Michel's and plan to go again.

It was my first time there and I absolutely loved it. The food was delicious and our waiter, Kailani, was awesome. Unfortunately our table was located a little away from being able to get a prime view of the sunset, which was the only drawback from this experience.

We once again went to Michels for our anniversary dinner. We brought along a couple of friends as well. Chef Hardy made a couple of off-menu items for us and visited our table twice during the evening. Philip and his dining room staff were excellent as usual. Thank go to Joshua (our server). The ambience and food and drink were up to Michels high standards. We look forward to going again soon.
