Have eaten here over 35 years and the setting is A-1 but this gem has same menu for a long time and on the dated side. Had chateaubriand which was very good but with only a dollop of potatoes. Very good Caesar Salad made at table. On pricey side and charged $30 for what we wanted as two cups of... More

We were at Michel's at the Colony Surf during our visti to Honolulu. We sat at the bar and met some very nice people, one being a anesthesiologist at the local hospital. We wound up ordering and sharing the Miche;s Ocean Bounty, which is like a seafood tower....It has Mahi Mahi and Oyster Rockefellar and lobster tail and other fish,... More

We celebrated our annversary with a romantic dinner at Michels. Reserved a table at the window so that we could watch the sunset off Waikiki beach. The atmosphere is perfect for a quiet romantic dinner for two. Even large groups are quiet and respectful of other guests which is perfect for the ambience. Michel's has an excellent and courteous staff... More

Superb location; superb service; superb food. Maybe the best restaurant on Oahu. We lived here twice and have gone back for visits for 25+ years and still love Michel's as the best. Go if you can.

We were part of a large group for dinner. Never having been to this restaurant before, we all had expectations for the evening. An outstanding evening. The food was a preset menu due to the large number in our group (we had the entire restaurant on a Sunday evening). The choices were perfect and the food was excellent and prepared... More

Probably the best escargot I've ever had. Enjoyed the table side preparation of caesar and steak diane. The oceanside dining was great and the service was terrific. The best dinner we had in Oahu.

This was recommended as a "must" eat in Waikiki. The service was good but the food is marginal and way over priced. The restaurant has a wanna-be french twist with modified table side service. Caesar sald was marginal (no anchovies available) and was very disappointing at $18 per person (minimum 2); steak Diane was over cooked and the pasta with... More
