    We had not been to Michel's for 30 years and still the setting cannot be beat. The waiter assigned to our table was busy so two other waiters, both named Michael, came over at different times to speak with us. They were personable and knowledgeable. I wanted foie gras as an appetizer and the chef was very accommodating. We shared three appetizers; foie gras, oysters, and escargot which were all first rate. Our entrees were Beef Rosinni and steak and lobster, again they did not disappoint. The reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars is the elegance it used to have has dropped a notch and excluding the two Michaels, the wait staff lacks the finesse that they all had previously. It is still a very good restaurant and I will go back again.

    The food was good except for my main course. The steak was overcooked and flavorless. The veggies also needed some flavor. The apps and drinks were great, service was excellent and the view was beautiful.

    Just WOW! We were on Oahu for our 30th Anniversary and chose a restaurant very carefully. Michel's did not disappoint; even though it was on the expensive side, it was worth it. From the welcoming valet, to the kind hostess, to our amazing table overlooking the sunset, to our AMAZING server! Thank you for an incredibly memorable 30th anniversary dinner!

    We chose Michel's as our final meal on Oahu, after a fantastic week. It couldn't have been a better bon voyage (or Aloha). The setting, the service, the attention to detail, the FOOD, the sunset - everything was spectacular. Perfect oysters (had to order another 6!), our mains (exquisite steaks, lobster, etc), and the desserts - oh, and the martinis were wonderful, too! No expense was spared on the finer details of fine dining - and the spectacular Oahu sunset was the perfect finish. Cannot recommend Michel's enough - and we've eaten all over the world. THANK YOU, Michel's!!! And bravo to you all.

    I have been to Michel’s every time I have come to Hawaii for the past 22 years, except during Covid. For the very first time it was not spectacular. It was good. The dinner was ok but not what I expected based on the past. My lobster bisque had an off flavor to it and it used to be the standard I judged all soups on. Anyway, I am hoping this was an off night but it’s I can’t see experiencing it twice like this and continuing to come. Thank you

    We try to visit Michel's at least once a year. It is an iconic and wonderful place. The staff is always top notch; the food excellent and the venue is captivating. We try to visit before the sun goes down so we can enjoy the sunset. We are from Kailua so we do not get to enjoy the sunset on a regular basis!.. Excellent evening.

    We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary there. I had the French onion soup and beef Wellington, and both were very good. My wife had the lobster bisque, and steak and lobster. The bisque was flambéed at table side. She said that the food was very good. Service is very good. Scenery is outstanding. Very nice atmosphere. Excellent place for a special occasion.

    we did not know now you now charge "anniversary fee" on tap. If we knew, we would like to order our favorite desserts instead of the cream with fruit in wine glass which was not appealing, but we appreciate the message in chocolate plate "Happy Anniversary" that cost $12-lol;)

    We had a wonderful experience with seating overlooking the beach. We started with the lobster bisque and French onion soup, the bisque comes with a table side flambé. For mains we had the Wellington and filet/lobster combo. For dessert the chocolate soufflé. Our meal was outstanding. Everything was cooked perfectly with attention to detail, what you would expect from an upscale French-restaurant. The server was extremely attentive. The table side demonstrations were exciting to watch. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for fine dining on the beach!
