Michel's at the Colony Surf
Our server Royce was 11 out of 10 he made our honeymoon experience and dining experience the best we have ever had. If we loved in Hawaii this would be our go to spot. We enjoyed everything Michele's had to offer. Thank you.
The food, service, and ambiance was amazing! I would highly recommend the escargot; it was the best I have ever had.
The service was excellent and the wait staff were attentive. The bilini that goes with the caviar was very greasy. Other that that the Onaga and scallops, Wilted spinach salad, and Ocean Bounty, cherries juilee were exceptional.
We celebrated our anniversary renewal dinner at Michel's. I will recommend to visit the place again if visiting Honolulu. Sunset dinner is fantastic and all food is made quality taste
Can I give a 6th star? Definitely the best fine dining experience that we have had in Hawaii. Great wait staff, fantastic with our kids. Classic French food, executed very well. Great wine list. Sensible wine recommendations from the manager. Amazing to see vegetables arrive with the kids pasta dish - extra points from us. The soufflé was perfect. Whilst the 6pm sitting is obviously the most sought after (to see the sunset across Waikiki beach), 8pm onwards was nice & quiet. Noise levels dropped massively by 8:15-8:30. We’ll be back next trip!
Always amazing food, service, and insanely gorgeous ambiance. Highly recommend this dining experience.
Our favorite restaurant, always Number One for special occasions. We leave full, contented and feeling pampered. You won't be disappointed.
The receptionist service was worst experience I had ever.
We requested the beach side table and she said “ these table is already booked pioneer 5 years”. However 2 table has no one appurtenances,,,, and also she come to make our baby quiet during dinner and also she looked sharply all the time ,,,,
On the other hand, table waiter was great !!! She always took a care of us well and polite service.
And food was fine, escargot and oysters were great. Since this restaurant is steak house , steak was not good (just fine , expensive) , house salad was poor quality.
If you want to go there, I recommend just drink with sunset !!!
Sunset was beautiful;)
The food highlight of our Oahu trip! Our waiter was amazing and the food spoke for itself! Get the escargot!
Excellent service and fantastic food. The soufflé was out of this world!
Going early we were able to watch the sun set into the ocean and being a Friday we also had a view of the fireworks at 7:45pm!
It was an amazing experience and I would go again soon!
Amazing ambiance, table side theatre, incredible beachfront views, live acoustic guitar music, & Teddy was a fantastic server. Food delicious
The food was expensive and tasted ok only.
Our best dining experience in Hawaii. The view was exceptional, especially at sunset. And the food was superb.
Great place for a unique experience right on the water.
From the time you walk in until you leave you have “Old World” charm, service and wonderful food. Always consistently delicious
Excellent food with wonderful ambiance right on the water near Diamond Head. Seafood is the way to go here. We had both the chilled and hot seafood which was a bonanza to say the least.
Absolutely loved Michels. A perfect last night dinner in Hawaii. We will be back. The table side service was brilliant. Lobster Bisque was superb. Cannot rate highly enough. The staff were wonderful also - Kalani - you made our night!
Great location with a stunning view of Honolulu. 5 star service. Food was excellent but did not meet the expectation considering the price paid. Excellent wine. One small dessert offered as it was my birthday. It is worth visiting.
Beautiful dinner, good service, spent about $350 food was good. However I ordered 4 desserts and they were disappointing and dry. And wished I had passed on dessert.
What an absolutely beautiful experience! Gorgeous restaurant in a gorgeous setting. Amazing, kind and attentive, but too attentive, servers. Many dishes prepared table side which is just so much fun. Everything we ordered was so delicious. Just a wonderful wonderful dinner.
To start, the service was exceptional! We can’t say enough wonderful things about the staff. But, for the prices, we did expect a little more. After reading so many wonderful things about the lobster bisque, we were really excited to try it. I can honestly say it’s the most I’ve ever spent on lobster bisque and it was nowhere near the best. Not bad by any means but also not super special. Our chateaubriand was delicious. Cooked perfectly and the sauces were really yummy. The rest of the plate was a little lackluster, though, and our meal felt a little quick. We had a nice experience but I wouldn’t say Michel’s is an absolute must.
My personal opinion is that Michel’s is a faded star. Over priced and under performance. Now that they are owned by a corporation specializing in Japanese weddings they give the impression they focus primarily on large groups and not small parties of only two to four. In essence, my group of three was very disappointed., but then we are not professional food critics.
We very much enjoyed the table side preparation.Few restaurants do that anymore.Are server
Royce was excellent.Overall it was one of are best restaurant experience we have had in years.
A Crying baby and screaming children.
Hard to stay!
Soufflé is delicious but not hot enough.
I will admit I primarily picked Michel's over other restaurants was because of the flambe desserts - we have never experienced that! But I'm so happy we picked it because overall it was amazing. There is a reason this restaurant is rated so high! We decided to splurge for our anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed. Beautiful table with a view of Waikiki at night, open air windows, excellent service, food and cocktails...and dessert! Tableside food preparation, wonderful flavors, attentive and knowledgeable service, and a special anniversary dessert. We felt so special! Thank you Michel's! (And the flambe dessert did NOT disappoint!)
PS. The only thing I will say about the ambience is that the lights are a bit bright in my opinion.
a very good table excellent servers food was well presented
We firstly asked to order 5 plates for 2 people, but waiter gave us advice that it might be too much, so we decreased to 4plates which were sea food mix, salad, Omar bisque and grilled Omar.
Every plates were good, especially bisque.
Here is popular restaurant for Japanese tourers and behind table of us was 9 Japanese in a party, so it was little bit noisy unfortunately.
The evening was fantastic and better than expected. it was a celebration of my wife's birthday and I couldn't have asked for a more romantic and memorable evening. The way and manner in which we were greeted, served, and doted on made everything extra special. I cannot say enough about the professional behavior of the staff. Going to do this again just to relive the event.
