Michel's at the Colony Surf
Amazing dining experience. A most eat at in Honolulu. The best seafood I had on the island.
Never fails to delight! A favorite
Excellent restaurant, service, and food! They really want you to enjoy the full experience, which is done professionally on all levels. Definitely recommend for a romantic dinner or occasion!
Always outstanding evening for couples or more, food, service and selections were wonderful.
The best restaurant for a romantic Dinner for two or a group of friends celebrating a special occasion or just their friendship! Amazing ambience directly by the ocean, which means spectacular sunsets most of the days.
Excellent food and wine and very professional and friendly staff. Chef Hardy and the Manager came over to greet us which was a very nice touch to a perfect Valentine’s Day dinner. Last but not least, Jeff Peterson, an amazing super talented guitarist, performed beautifully to complete a most enjoyable evening!
We went to Michel's for Valentine's Day and were surprised that they were only serving a special menu at $150 per person. We were disappointed because we were looking forward to some if the regular menu items. There was no mention of this on their website. Because I have celiac disease they were able to make some limited adjustments to my dinner. Most of it was tasty, but they replaced the chowder with an inedible mushroom soup. The main course was a tough, overcooked, unrecognizable steak and the smallest lobster tail I have ever seen. The steak was awful and the server was unable to tell me what cut of meat was being served. Our $100 bottle of wine was a screw top cheap wine. Dinner for two ended up costing $600 for a less than mediocre meal. We wouldn't mind paying that much for a great fine dining experience, but this did not live up to our expectations. It is really troubling that a restaurant of this calibre would serve inferior food at an inflated price for a special holiday dinner. I love good French food so I was extremely disappointed.
A stone throw away from the breaking waves Michel's is one of the most romantic restaurants in Hawaii. Quality of the food is excellent, great service and outstanding ambiance. I always enjoy the extensive wine list, where I manage to find diamonds in the rough on occasion. Prices are expectantly high, but well worth the experience.
Very disappointed in the overall dining experience. The lobster bisque was just so so. For the cost I would not recommend. Too many other great places to dine! Next door at the New Otani-Hau tree is awesome! Friendly, beautiful ambience and great food!
Amazing personal service. Fantastic food. Ambiance is at the same level as service and quality of food.
We will come back .
The character of Michel's has changed over the years. And it seems larger and less intimate than 10 years ago. And the noise level was greater this time. The servers were good but not as excellent as last time. It is still a fine restaurant and the Chef is amazing!
This was our second time at Michel’s. Our first experience was great but this time it was major disappointment. Service was too slow, tables were so cramped and our food was cold when they served it. For the money we paid it was extremely disappointing. Overrated. If we come to Hawaii again, we will not go again.
Food is very, very good. Service is great. Face it— it’s all about the sunset!! Get there early for the best Mother Nature has to offer. Worth the trip.
Service was poor. We ordered the cioppino and it was inedible: the sauce was toooo spicy.
Oysters were fantastic, ambiance is wonderful with open windows to the sea.
Overall we were very dissatisfied and disappointed. Too bad as we had a wonderful meal at New Year’s Eve.
We may try one more time, but for the price everything should be impeccable.
Always an axcellent dining experience! You can't beat the food (quality & value), service, and ambiance.
We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary at micheals. It was perfect in every way. The food, the service, the atmosphere, and the beauty of the water--all was excellent. We highly recommend Micheal for any and all occasions.
I have been dining here for probably 30 years. The food and service never disappoint. Michel’s at the Colony is my only constant in every trip. Everything you choose to eat will be delicious!!
Great food, great service, and amazing view of the sunset on the water.
Excellent in every way.
First of all, what a view! Definitely try to go at sunset.
Second but equal, the food and table-side preparation were wonderful. They succeed at providing nostalgia and top quality cuisine. We were wondering if this kind of restaurant would hold up after all these year and were very pleasantly surprised!
The staff were friendly and helpful in helping my husband with selecting his main entree. The food was excellent! Loved the presentation of the French onion soup. The pastry puff on top was certainly interesting. The halibut was cooked to perfection, moist and flacky.
Beautiful location for special occasions. Very attentive service.
Josh was our server and he was great! He was energetic and friendly. I'd ask for him the next time we dine there.
I would not dine here again. The view is really lovely and the wine selection is on the better side of Waikiki dining but the dining room is quite outdated. The food was horrible. Outdated menu with disappointing quality of food. I don’t mind at all spending money on great food and wine especially if the atmosphere is nice, but I would recommend to not waste your money dining here.
I used it for the first time. I was very satisfied about the amount and contents of cooking.
Wife’s birthday. Special trip to Hawaii. Excellent!
