Michel's at the Colony Surf
This is one of our go to restaurants-just love everything-the food, atmosphere, service and the view! The weather was great the sunset was gorgeous! We always go there!
Everything about this place was very nice. However, the prices are very expensive and i just didn't feel like the cost was proportionate to the value.
My wife and I make dinner at Michel’s a must every trip to Honolulu. It has a special place in our lives and we hosted our wedding night dinner there 6 years ago. Always pleased with the service, the food and there is not a place on Oahu with a more spectacular view.
With delicious cuisines, and comfortable atmosphere, I and my wife spent joyful times at Michel's.
Hope to visit next Jan., Mahalo.
The sunset is beautiful. Must make a reservation 2-3 weeks in advance.
Outstanding service and food.
Very attentive service with fantastic food and drinks!
It's really wonderful experience that we had a dinner with awesome sunset.
Celebrating our honeymoon
My girlfriends and I celebrated a big brthday here this past week. Excellent tableside service for Caesar salad, Chateaubriand, Steak Diane and Bananas Foster. Incredible live music and sounds of the ocean, lapping on the beach. Truly special all the way around.
Old-School classic French with table-side preparations of Steak Diane, Steak Tartare, Lobster and Cherrie Jubilee. The view is hands down the finest in Waikiki. None of the youngster restaurants can match the class and elegance...arrive early about 5:30 for best tables. And don’t complain about the expense, just be grateful these establishments still exist!
Attentive service and delicious food. Custom cocktails were creative and tasty. Can’t wait for the upcoming rehab of the restaurant. Will return again in the future.
Great service and the food was great
Graduation and bday
Worst restaurant I've been to in a long time. Trapped in a bad time tunnel of fake elegance cheesy clientele and extremely bad food.
Absolutely loved our dining experience. We came here on our honeymoon and everything about it was perfect. The food, drinks, service and setting was all outstanding. My husband and I both have dietary requirements and they catered for this incredibly well. We would highly recommend.
This was better than previous visits. The setting is great, and the cold seafood platter was terrific. Also the mixed drinks were more sophisticated than usual. All in all, this is a wonderful place to visit, even if it requires quite a hike from the Waikiki hotels. (That hike is through Kapiolani Park, which is quite pleasant.)
Absolutely loved it. My wife and I had our 1st Anniversary dinner there and we would do it all over again. Michel’s definitely made it one special evening.
Iconic restaurant never loses its charm. Beachfront dining at its best. The staff was very accommodating, professional.
Very impressive and personable service from the entire staff.
Magical and amazing 😍
The food and staff are out of this world ,,,
My favorite place to go when I am in Hawaii 🥰
Still the best place in the world to enjoy a great meal!
The menu and restaurant looks like it hasn’t changed since the 70s. Most clients are elderly The food was fine but not notable. We were there on Christmas Eve. And I understand that the staff would rather be home but they were waiting for us to finish to put down the next course. At $150 per person try a different place
The service is amazing. We always enjoy Pasha, he is great. Views are spectacular.
The view was amazing.
The service (table-side cooking) was fantastic.
However, the main entree wasn't worth the price.
Perfect seats and view !
Perfect service and meals / drinks !
Thank you so much for your great dinner for our honeymoon and christmas vacation.
We are looking forward to visiting to Michel's again from now.
Dinner at Michel's brings back fond memories, so maybe I was expecting too much this visit. It has been about 10 years since I visited last. In 10 years many new restaurants have popped up in Honolulu with exciting flavors and top notch food, so this may be why Michel's didn't deliver as highly as I had hoped. Or maybe we ordered the wrong things. We ordered the famous lobster bisque, which was made table side...and it was made table side too many times that evening because you could taste char in the soup. I'm not sure if that was purposeful or not, but I was not a fan. I convinced my husband to order chateaubriand with me (minimum of two orders) because I loved it back in the day. He was not impressed. My daughter enjoyed the lobster newburg/beef dish, and my Dad enjoyed his cioppino. The caesar salad was tasty as well. Maybe my husband and I ordered the wrong things, or maybe Michel's needs to better perfect their offerings to keep customers coming with those premium prices.
Food is always excellent ! It was a very nice experience!
Much nicer than I expected though a little more formal. Obviously a special night out for most, although fairly casual attire seemed welcome. A kindler gentler alternative to LaMer where men must wear a dinner jacket. Our waiter Joel was very good. Lots of table side service. Thanks!
This place is expensive but it is the most elegant restaurant in Honolulu. The food is excellent and innovative and the service is amazing. Ask for a window table if available. this is a special occasion place.
We visit Michel every from London UK. The staff and the food never disappoint us. Only the downside was the room we have seated traps all the smokes from customers steaks that have been prepared in front of the customers. Thanks again and we will definitely come back next year !
