My family has been to Michel’s many times. This was my 1st visit. It was my family’s last night on Oahu. They wanted to save the best for last. We had tried to get a reservation earlier in the week, but Michel’s had been closed...More

We were recommended Michels as a must  visit by friends who had dined here previously. Unfortunately our experience didn't match up to their enthusiasm. The table side service was novelty and the views are fantastic. But at $50-60 an entree, I expected better quality food....More

We visited Michel’s again this trip and we were not disappointed. The service from our server David was excellent. Food quality was as expected very good. This is an expensive place to dine but worth a visit for sure.

This was a disappointing experience. My extended family had eaten here in December and had a wonderful experience. We recently returned with only my immediate family of 3. This restaurant features table side prepared appetizers, entrees and desserts. Unfortunately, if every table does a table...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. Outdoor terrace has stunning views of Waikiki, swaying palms. Mellow, elegant atmosphere and a terrific guitarist providing mood music. A bit pricey but the food is pretty good and the ambience is sublime.

It was so fun to just walk from our luxury rental home as if we were true locals and have dinner at the world famous Michel's restaurant. Five star all the way.

Sorry, just saw this. No. My usual table's by the water with a fantastic view of Waikiki Beach. I regularly bring several bottles of wine and rose champagne. There's a small corkage charge but they'll waive it for... More
