I love your restaurant. I have been 5 times and I have never been able to have a window seat. T

It wasn't really busy but the service was really slow. I saw a table leave cause the wait was too long. The food was mediocre. I have dined there in the past and the food was amazing. This time nothing really stood out. Very disappointed.

This occasion was the first Valentines Day since moving to Oahu, and Michels was the best recommendation ever! Fine food, satisfying drink, and skilled musical entertainment made for an unparalleled experience.

I was disappointed. My family (5 total) had gone to Michel's in December, and although the dinner took a long time, I felt taken care of and the quality of food was high. This time there were only 3 of us, and I felt that little care was given to us or our food. Although initial drinks were promptly brought, everything else lagged. This restaurant has several table side prepared dishes, including appetizers, entrees and desserts. A very long time elapsed between ordering, and them bringing out our appetizers, which included a table side preparation of lobster bisque. As our waiter was wheeling over our appetizers, another table was wheeled over from a different direction and included our entrees. For entrees we had ordered a seafood dish, plus 2 wagyu beef dishes, and I just KNEW they weren't going to refire them, and unfortunately I was right. The appetizers were good, but when I came back from the restroom our entrees were on the table, and they looked sad. For entrees that cost nearly $60 each, it really was unacceptable, but we had already been there for 2 hours, and didn't want to wait anymore, so we didn't complain. The wagyu actually held up pretty well and was still tender and delicious. My seafood entree was pretty horrible. I actually spit parts of it out. Then we were excited for the table side cherries jubilee which was our favorite from December's dinner. And it was amazing. Truly beautiful the way they make it. But it took nearly 1 hour from the conclusion of our entree to get to the dessert.

Wonderful ambience and the service was spectacular! The dishes we ordered were prepared table side, which is hard to find done in restaurants anymore. Wonderful menu items, superbly prepared. Even with multiple large groups in the restaurant, the staff made you feel like you were the most important and the service didn’t suffer at all. Highly recommend!

一番海側の席ではありませんでしたが、それでも十分すぎるほどのオーシャンビューで感動しました。
また、毎週金曜日にあがるという花火を席から楽しく見ることもできました。
料理はシーフードをメインに頂きましたがとてもおいしく、コスパも良かったです。
特別な日の食事で利用したのですが、スタッフの方の対応が素晴らしくまたまた感動しました。
日本語のメニューもあり、安心でした。
ホノルルに行く機会があれば必ずまた行きたいと思っています。

Our reservation was made two months ago through open table. I ask for a window which we got. It was my wife’s birthday and I ask for them to make it special. No acknowledgment at all. Service was just ok. We have to this restaurant 4 other times and was delighted. Food was subpar. I was really disappointed.

It was a wonderful experience. The view of the ocean and sunset was very romantic and mesmerizing. We were seated right away at a table for four. This was ideal as it was only the two of us. The staff were very friendly and engaging all the while allowing us to dine in peace. Food was exceptional. We had the ocean bounty and the 12 ounce New York blue rare. Excellent. We had a memorable experience. Will definitely go back again.

This was my first time at Michel's and it will be a night to remember! The whole experience was amazing from start to finish from the wait staff, to our waiter of the night David, drinks, food and most of all ambiance! Our food was so delicious and the scenery did not disappoint! I'm so happy I got to spend my boyfriend's birthday here!
