    We had heard many wonderful reviews of Michel’s and conveniently we were staying right next door on our recent trip. The staff was very friendly but the service was not great. We waited quite a while to have our drink and food orders taken. The Ceasar Salad, made in front of us, was delicious but the Lobster bisque was mediocre. I left most of mine uneaten. The setting is beautiful so if you order the right thing you will probably be happy. But with so many great restaurants in the area, I will not be going back.

    Tables were a few feet from the ocean with stunning view of Waikiki beach. Service was the best we have experienced from any top restaurant. Some dishes were prepared fresh at the table. Highly recommend.

    Always enjoy the Valentine’s Day dinner (2021-2024) experience. Meat and seafood are always well-prepared and delicious. It is the service experience that is outstanding and makes for a wonderful evening. We were fortunate to have Josh and his team at our table. We had been recently served by Josh at dinner for my wife’s birthday (11/19/2023) so it was great to enjoy his work and conversation again so soon. Great job by all! Thank you for a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

    Fun experience for our family of four! Not many old guard French restaurants left. Incredible table side Caesar salad. The lobster bisque was disappointing- bitter - maybe needed more cream. Great ribeye for two. Great attentive service. The interior is tired and in need of a refresh. Amazing views. Glad we went.

    We enjoyed our evening and our dinner. Everything was excellent. In particular we wish to say service by Josh was outstanding, and the bartender did a great job with the cocktails, which is not too diminish in any way the excellent meal. Both the valet & the hostess made our Introduction to the Resturant exceptional. Thank you all for a special evening.

    Never complained, but had to let them know that the food was just not good… The French onion soup tasted like herb tea… The demi sauces were cold and had a skin on them by the time they were served to us… all dishes needed a pinch of salt to bring the flavor through…we were told there were new chefs, but still…

    First time for brunch. Fixed menu was excellent. My steak was completely raw. Aka, never even touched the grill. Mistakes happen. Given the risk of eating raw meat, this needs to be one of the higher priorities in any kitchen. I felt sick the rest of the day (Sunday) and am feeling after effects likely due to the bacteria level. I’ll go back but I’ll ask for my steak to be cooked to temperature (155 degrees).

    We've had dinners at Michel's for years. This was the first time we had brunch. It was a fixed price menu with lots of options for just $60 each. But it's only offered on the first Sunday of the month. We felt that it was an incredible deal for the food, impeccable service and fabulous view. Compared to the Halekulani Sunday buffet, Michel's brunch is a steal!

    英語が話せない日本人はなめられます。 席についたとたんから高級キャビアやシャンパンの話をされ、断りましたが、次はドリンクメニューにあるグラスワインがほしいと言っても「NO」と言われ、ドリンクメニューを取り上げられました。おすすめのものを持ってきてくれましたが、会計時、小さいサイズのシャンパンと赤ワイン1本ずつで3万弱取られていました。ぼったくりすぎます。 シーザーサラダに生のニンニクが入っていたため、その後から胃を壊して何も食べれませんでした。 ハネムーンの利用でしたが「thank you」ばかり連呼され、不快でした。顔が日系?のような店員さんはせっかちで、不親切で、とても高級店とは思えない態度でした。 すてきな記念日にしたい方は行かない方がいいです。
