    This was the most amazing dining experience of my life. The location and setting were to die for. There was an endangered monk seal right outside of our table about 15 feet from us. The sunset was gorgeous and the service was unpretentious and attentive. The food was very good. We got the steak for two and it was cooked perfectly. The Caesar salad was one of the best around. The desserts were fantastic, albeit really small portions. The lobster bisque was not my favorite, as it lacked flavor and seasoning. They brought out a lemon sorbet for palette cleansing that was also phenomenal.

    We had a lovely evening dining at Michel’s and the weather & scenery was amazing. Beautiful sunset too! Our food was quite delicious, but perhaps over-priced. We were unhappy with only one item, which was the French onion soup. Appearance-wise it ranked 10 out of 10 👍, however, taste-wise it ranked 2 out of 10👎. Very disappointing as it was so bland, it had very little French onion taste. Everything else we ordered was quite delicious. Our waiter, Kevin, was amazingly efficient, helpful, and kind. - The perfect waiter!

    Amazing ambience even though it’s 8:30pm at night. We got to hear the sound of waves, got to see monk seal resting by the palm tree & cute little live crabs crawling on the beach….most importantly, our food was amazing and our waitress Mary-Jane provided top notch fine-dining service!!! She made our 10th anniversary absolutely unforgettable!

    Michel’s went out of their way to make my 50th bday special. From the general manager greeting us at the valet and walking us to our table, to our AMAZING server, to the love that the chef put into each delicious dish, this is what an upscale dining experience should be. This restaurant clearly takes pride in it’s food as well as it’s service and our table appreciated the effort. We can’t thank them enough. Mahalo!!!

    Food was Ok, the location where the lanai guests gets entertained by the beachgoers while you are eating the so called fancy food was not very appealing. Better fine dining restaurants around to consider...

    We had a wonderful anniversary dinner for the second year in a row. Our table by the window gave us a beautiful view of the sunset and our food was delicious. The service was great and we enjoyed watching our server prepare the table side Caesar salad. Just after sunset we also enjoyed watching a monk seal make her way from the water up to the edge of the restaurant. It was a very enjoyable evening!

    We had the lamb chops which were perfectly cooked, and the Caesar salad, prepared for us at our table. The food, the taste was excellent. The service was impeccable. I dropped my napkin. Another one was instantly in my hands. We were in Honolulu for 10 days. Michel's was by far the best dining experience that we had on the island.

    Incredible views and service. Have been here on many occasions and it’s always a favorite. The food this past time was not as exceptional. The lobster in the salad was very salty and mushy and the portion of the salad was rather small. The ribeye for 2 was over cooked despite asking for medium, so we asked it to be ready made. They got the temperature right the second time but it was extremely fatty and not very tasty for the price. Other items including the caviar, onion soup and bananas foster and drinks were perfect.
