First we got a perfect seat at the window! Our server was Jackie, and she was Perfect!
The food including the Lobster Bisque was incredible!
Very special restaurant in Honolulu!
Everything about Michel’s is exceptional. The food. The scenery. The ambiance. The service is always exceptional! My absolute favorite restaurant!
My boyfriend and I went out for a regular dinner and the staff made it feel like the most special of occasions. Even though there were other tables we treated like we were the only ones there. Slightly pricey but worth every penny. Highly recommend!!!!!
Great food, awesome whiskey and bourbon selection, amazing service. The view of Waikiki was breathtaking and you’re right on the beach! Definitely worth the high price, would dine here again.
We went in for our anniversary, and they were able to get us great ocean-front seating.
All staff is so well-trained, and nobody will disappoint you.
The service and food were perfect. We've ordered the tasting menu, and the quality and quantity were both perfect.
Kids got a lot of fun with the flambe service and the made-in-front-of-you Caeser's salad.
We were so glad that we've made this choice.
This place is always a classic and makes you feel special.
Exceptional service throughout the meal. Ordered the oysters as a starter which was fantastic from Washington. Followed with our entree of beef wellington. Ordered it medium rare. Dinner was outstandingly delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant for not only for special occasions. You're spoiled with the beautiful view of the ocean and Waikiki as if you're dining right on the beach.
My favorite restaurant in the whole wide world! The sunset is amazing! It’s so relaxing. The service and food is impeccable! I absolutely loved everything about this restaurant! The view is everything!
This was probably the most perfect meal and dining service We have experienced... ever. We came last year for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. What made it special this year was having the windows completely open- being able to hear and smell the ocean, the beautiful sunset and most importantly, the staff were spot on in their service and managing appropriate social distancing that we never felt like we were in the midst of a pandemic. The staff made us feel comfortable and we felt welcomed to be there. My mother dined here last over 40 years ago and she left feeling very happy and thankful.
Table service was exceptionally attentive and professional.

Lovely environment, great service and food. It’s a bit pricey but worth it, especially if you are celebrating a special occasion. Social distancing for tables are excellent. A Taste of Michel’s pre fixed menu was quite good.
Our dining experience at Michel’s was excellent. From start to finish.
A beautiful sunset, excellent service, excellent food, a very quiet and enjoyable atmosphere.
Our server was a very polite young man and deserves a big Mahalo from us.
The food was amazing and the service was impeccable! The renovations made the restaurant even more lovely than before!
Service and food were excellent!
Safety protocols were followed and open air dining makes for a very comfortable experience.
Our server, Kyle, was professional and attentive. The location is beautiful and the food was exquisite.
Excellent food and service: everything was top-notch as would be expected of a restaurant of Michel's reputation! Especially appreciated was not only the accomodation of my request for a window-side table, but also the special birthday dessert that was prepared for my companion!
Could not have had a better experience. Our server Somxay (I apologize if I forgot the spelling) was professional and on top of everything. He was a delight to be around. The tasting menu and wine pairing were phenomenal and I only wish I’d had room to continue eating. Thank you for the wonderful evening!
I came here for my birthday and everything was great! They had my name on the menu for my table and the service was very impressive. Our server Johnny was very friendly and professional. The food was GREAT, the valet was very nice. Just a great place all around.
Excellent! Fantastic view; beautiful sunset; great service!
I celebrated my birthday here tonight but nothing significant to remember. Food was okay although I probably wouldn’t crave for anything I had tonight from their menu. Furthermore, I probably will not return. Service was okay but not impeccable for this type of restaurant. The manager only greets certain tables and had gone above and beyond helping this one particular table while he ignored the other tables. He had a favorite table and favorite customers seeming to favor certain ones and does not treat all customers similarly. We were placed in a back table facing the dining tables in front of us. I hated that set-up since I had no choice but to watch the tables in front of me, and they were able to watch us while we ate. No privacy. I really have nothing special to say about this restaurant from my own experience on my special day.
Excellent service, gourmet dining in a relaxed open air environment with fabulous views. Thank you Phillip and Sai for a perfect experience. Worth mentioning is the safety protocols that added to our overall dining experience.
White glove treatment!
Personalized service, sweeping views and amazing food! It was a perfect dinner with my husband to celebrate his 29th year with the Air Force, thank you for making everything wonderful.
Beautiful restaurant and awesome view the ocean from any table. Service is outstanding and food is wonderful! Champagne little pricey but good choices. One of the best restaurants on Oahu!
Michel's is a wonderful place for a sunset dinner and a romantic celebration. We've been to this restaurant several times, but not during COVID and I have to say, besides wearing masks when not at the table, we could barely notice the difference. Though staff were very conscientious about cleanliness.
One of the Best restaurants on the island. I always make sure to dine at This restaurant every-time I’m in Hawaii.
This is a continuation of our world food tour; tonight it was Vive la France! We were seated at a wonderful table by the beach but we had to ask to be moved because some beach goers were smoking and their smoke was wafting into the restaurant. The table we were moved to turned out to be better in every way ... it was still on the beach but at the Diamond Head end so we were the recipient of the cooling breeze from the air conditioning.
We were greeted by Chef Hardy Kintscher and the entire experience was memorable. We started with amuse bouche, little crisps of delight, accompanied by glasses of Empress 1908 gin and Fever Tree tonic water, served so artfully.
Our appetizers were the escargot and the foie gras. The escargot was served with toast points; excellent but perhaps could have benefited from a touch more garlic (we love garlic). The Foie Gras was divine ... the dish was stunning!
We had the Chateaubriand for two, carved tableside and served with grace and elegance. It came with a bouquet of vegetables and a dollop of mashed potatoes with a slice of mushroom atop. With the entrée we had glasses of Overture by Opus One; a prefect match.
To finish our meal we each had the chocolate soufflé; what can I say... a perfect finish to a perfect meal.
Food was good, the course menu was a very long process.
The food was impeccable. Service was professional yet personable. Table-side preparations are well done and a terrific addition to a very memorable evening. This restaurant has our very highest recommendation.
Went for our anniversary it was so a perfect night out for mom and dad. The menus were even customized with our name and the date
All around fantastic experience. Thanks for making it special!
Been coming to Michele’s for 30 years and always make it a special part of any Hawaiian trip. I don’t know if it was Covid or a change in Chef’s or procurement but the food was very disappointing. The service was still excellent and the view can’t be beat but the food has got to change.
They will always serve best food with best service and ambience. You will never be disappointed.
One of my favorite restaurants for its food, magical location and excellent service. Only thing is- I go there so many years requesting a table by the “window” and never ever got seated there. Pls share what I should do to get that table.
We had a glorious dinner experience at Michel’s. My husband, son, and I ordered the tasting menu, and it was outstanding! It was a special evening to celebrate my son joining us on Hawaii.
Food was great, but not a full menu. Waitress was excellent, but service was not the same. The restaurant does a good job in making you feel safe and the tables were nicely spaced. Nothing is the same during COVID but it's still a lot better than eating at home.
Had forgotten how lovely it was to dine here. Will be back
Our server jhadi was excellent!! Very kind and knowledgeable!
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.
