If you are looking for a romantic view especially at sunset, this is the place. But the food is mediocre at best and very over priced.

We cannot fault anything, the food, the service and the location was amazing. Our waitress was 5 star the restaurant has a very comprehensive wine list.

We always go to Michel's during our trip to Oahu. We try to get one of the first reservations (5:30 or 6:00) so we can catch sunset. The starters are seductive enough that my husband often gets just a series of appetizers for dinner. Bisque...More

You have to check the time for the sunset before the reservation. Location is promised and food is good as well. Night time is good but the best time is for the sunset time. You can almost enjoy the two different restaurant in one place.

Michel's is an exceptionally romantic restaurant with very good-to-excellent food, depending on the dish. The ambience inside is warm Parisian and you can't be much closer to the beach/ocean. Super sunsets! We are big fans of their lobster bisque, which has been to-die-for over the...More

Celebrated my daughter's birthday with dinner and decided to come here rather than Wolfgang's Steakhouse and we were definitely impressed. We consider ourselves "foodies" and love great food, wine and service (as anyone would) and always love to try "new" trendy cuisine and eateries. We've...More

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
