Michel's at the Colony Surf
Been coming for over 30 years, wow did everything fall apart. Sat for over 15 minutes and no came to our table.
Only after I got up did a waiter come by. Ceasar Salald no flavor. Cold seafood platter tasteless. Mr Shaw
Give me his card and said next time, last time I heard that in Honolulu the restaurant went out of business.
What a fall from the top. Never could figure out the wooden chop sticks in a white table cloth establishment.
This was my 6th visit to Michels. It’s always outstanding with the best ambiance and food on the island! The service is perfect! Can’t wait to return again!
Tremendous service, delicious food and a special opportunity to meet the GM, Mr. Shaw, whose kindness elevated our overall experience even further. We are grateful to have shared such a special meal in a place where the staff are respected , encouraged to continue to learn, and where customer experience is truly the paramount focus.
Best restaurant in the island! Views are incredible. Must book your table for sunset. Order the lobster bisque, it’s fabulous. Also, grand marnier soufflé.
Not just dinner, Michels is an experience. The view is fabulous and everything, food, drinks, service is impeccable. It is worth every penny. It is a v
We were in Honolulu for our 30th Wedding Anniversary (travelling from Australia ) and I had booked Michel’s online and advised it was a special occasion and if we could have a table overlooking the beach. We were seated at a beautiful table overlooking the beach and were also able to see some fireworks that were in Waikiki.
The 3 course meal that we had was faultless, the service was on point and a good wine list.
We would highly recommend Michel’ and if we are ever back we will be back,

James was a wonderful waiter, very attentive and informative . Thanks for making dinner terrific.
always happy to dine at Michel's. beautiful setting , view and sunset, excellent wine list.
Amazing food, great service from our waiter Joel! Great table
We really enjoyed eating here. The food was great and service was even better. Excellent choice for a date night or special occasion.
The seafood was very good and our server was so friendly and prompt. We were sat at one of the only tables without a view, but the restaurant is elegant in a vintage 70s way. There were patrons at a table a few tables away who were streaming loud videos on their phones clearly disturbing other customers (us included). Would have been nice if the management had politely asked them to put them away, or at least put earphones on. Kind of ruined the latter part of our meal.
The food and service were outstanding as usual. Try one of the flaming desserts - they’re all amazing!
Michel''s is a fine restaurant with great food and attentive, professional service.
Tolles Restaurant an ganz toller Lage. Machen sehr gut, obwohl in usa.
As always, wonderful dinner!
Very good spot for a romantic evening. The food and service was good.
Food service and Atmosphere is the Best in Hawaii ‼️
Owner/management needs to invest in a reservationist and/or host/hostess to answer phone and questions from guests. At this high caliber, pre-arrival experience is just as important as the dining experience itself as well as at departure. Not sure if it's a frequent occurrence but screaming Japanese kids at a high end French restaurant...very rude and annoying! Other than that, physical aspects of venue, view, food and service were all good.
It was highly recommended and lived up to everything that was said. Right on the beach, beautiful sunset, excellent attentive service and outstanding food. Wine list was good as well.
Great food and wonderful service.
The food was very good and surprising. Service was good and was very satisfied.
The best restaurant.
I want to visit again!!
Remarkable food with tableside service, attentive and professional waitstaff. The most magnificent view makes this the most romantic restaurant in the U. S.
We had the tasting menu, and we really enjoyed the show. The service was top-notch - we were never hurried, the two waiters answered our questions about the food and wine, and they called us a taxi when we were ready to leave. The wine choices were all pretty good, and at least two of them were excellent. The best part of the meal was "people watching" - watching some of the other tables, a couple of tables with (well-behaved) children.
Always love dining at Michel’s. Simply a treasure here in Hawaii.
Our waiter, Pasaj, was extraordinary. The entire experience was something our clients (and we) will always remember.
A wonderfully memorable overall culinary experience in every way possible. From the delicious cuisine, first rate service, picturesque view to the Grammy award winning guitarist whose incredible music accompanied our meal, I could not recommend Michel’s highly enough.
Our dinner at Michels was beyond our expectations. The sunset was amazingly beautiful. The staff was very attentive and professional. We are in Hawaii often but never had been to Michels. We thought it was a lot of French food and too expensive. Not so.! The seafood was the best I’ve ever had and we eat a lot of fish when dining out. It is now our favorite and we will go every time we are on the island. Wish we didn’t wait so long to pull the trigger! Seafood mixed grill is a must.
Everything was perfect. The ambiance was delightful, the service was impeccable, and the food was delicious. The dishes that were expertly prepared tableside by our waiter made this a truly memorable experience.
Michel’s is a wonderful throwback. They have many terrific table side preparation items. We had table side Caesar salads for two plus steak Diane, steak tartare and crepes suzette. One night we had grand Marnier soufflés for dessert. Wonderfully done and visually appealing. Bill is one of many exceptional waiters who can prepare these items. It is rare to see table side preparation anymore in restaurants. To top it off their location right on the beach with often open windows looking out on the water is stunning. One of the top restaurants of the many I’ve been to. Highly recommended.
Loud, pretentious, sadly limited menu. Officious and annoying service. Extremely loud large parties making it difficult to enjoy conversation. We will not return.
