Michel's at the Colony Surf Ratings and Reviews
Beautiful restaurant, food was excellent, service was spectacular. Kind of pricey but well worth the splurge. Service was attentive, unhurried. Perfect location for a relaxing, long dinner. Beautiful waterfront view. Be sure to go for early dinner to catch the sunset. Management checked in with most tables to ensure everything was up to par. Going back our adult kids. Young children are not going to appreciate the vibe.
最後に、初のオープンテーブルでの予約で不安でしたが、お店を訪ねてスタッフから予約が入っていることが確認できた瞬間は安心しました。また利用させて頂きます。『Michel's at the Colony Surf』は数年後、絶対に帰ってきたいです。ありがとうございました。
This restaurant is excellent. The waiter was great, the ambiance could not be better (open to the waves of the sea), beautiful scenery, very fun cocktail drinks, lots of choices for flambe preparations tableside, delicious food. We will definitely return there every time we come to Honolulu.
Had to wait and ask for basic items like butter, fork, table pepper. Waited 1 hour 15 min for entree.. waited 20 min to pay the bill and don't ask for an Ameretto on the rocks the don't know what it is lol. Slow service. But great view.
Informed them it was our anniversary through open table and we did not get any acknowledgement of our special occaision
Pasha is an excellent server! He made our whole evening and dining experience special. Very knowledgeable and offered great suggestions. Took many photos of us for us with the beautiful sunset sky and Pacific as backdrop. Everything was fabulous from beginning to end! We also had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Philip Shaw. Thank you for a wonderful experience! Looking forward to next year when we hopefully return to Waikiki!
We recently had a wonderful dining experience at Michels Surf Colony. Our server Shigeo, made it an evening to remember. The restaurant itself is in a fantastic location for diners to enjoy a sunset view. A window table was not available when we initially sat down, however a table did open up and Shigeo effortlessly transitioned us in time to enjoy our main courses, wine and dessert. The sommelier confirmed the quality of our wine choice and we chatted with Shigeo about wine regions and favorite areas.
Shigeo masterfully assembled our Caesar salad tableside, it was delicious. My wife's steak diane was also cooked tableside. My seafood bounty was a nice variety of different fish and shellfish choices. While Michels describes themselves as a French restaurant, It really isn't, there are a few French inspired preparations but the food is mostly crowd pleasing standard fare.
Michels is not inexpensive and it is not a gourmet experience, however it you want a special evening with great food, ambiance and service, you should not hesitate trying Michels.
We booked this restaurant based on past press reviews for being a really romantic place to enjoy French cuisine in Honolulu. It was a special occasion for us being our 10th wedding anniversary.
We arrived for a 830pm reservation and there was no one on the front desk for a good 5 minutes on arrival.
Our experience to begin with was not ideal / very poor and we almost left the restaurant due to lack of care by front of house staff who was not professional at all and not having a waiter for 15minutes from arrival.
The first person who greeted us basically said nothing put us on a table and handed a wine list after I requested it
However, Once our main waiter wearing a jacket and tie assisted us, I mentioned my concerns and he was excellent from that point onwards and alleviated my dissatisfaction.
Our Wine was great and food ordered was excellent.
Restaurant is becoming tired and needs a renovation though to improve presentation if they claim the are still one of the best in Honolulu.
Our favorite Oahu restaurant, Ocean House, located in the Outrigger Reef hotel chose to close their doors in Sept. We opted to try Michel's after reading extremely favorable reviews on several restaurant sites. We were not disappointed as the ambance, food & service was impeccably blended. Several dishes, including Cesar salad and Bananas Foster are prepared tableside. Michel's quickly became our favorite restaurant in Honolulu.
Food on the Chef’s menu was good. Timing was off on wine pairing. Several times the food would come before the paired wine, no explanation of what was being served as it was served on either food or wine. Communication was horrible, was over priced for the chef menu service.
ウェイターさんもスマートでハンサムで、とても素敵なレストランです^ - ^
We celebrated our wedding dinner with family at Michels. Booked our reservations with Open Table and added a special request to have our wedding cake served for dessert. The restaurant called me personally the day before our reservation and confirmed that we could deliver the cake after 3 pm when their staff arrives. Delicious mixed drinks, table side meal prep with an open flame show made the whole experience rememberable. Everything was delicious, and the portions were filling. A perfect evening, thank you.
Beautiful evening celebrating my mother’s 75th birthday—exceeded expectations. Wait staff made my mother feel very special and made all of us feel like the only table in the room. My 7-year-old niece was also given careful attention and her needs looked after without us asking for anything. Jason is a master at his craft—so intuitive and professional. Our meals were delicious. A wonderful memorable evening.
My boyfriend took me there so I could sit by an open table and watch the sun set. Unfortunately it was one of the worst storms ever. The wind kicked up and we had to move to another table. The wind was so strong that it took the table cloths off the table and glasses were flying off breaking all around. There were very few people dining due to the storm. We had an 8:30 time slot but were only called at 7:45 to come in earlier. So I cannot give an opinion that would be beneficial.
We returned to celebrate our first date 14 years ago. The service was perfect as was the food and ambience. I asked for a vegan main dish and the veggies with pasta was delicious, although it lacked any protein if I want to be slightly critical. We were also ecstatic to witness aa amazing GREEN FLASH as the sun set! Michels is one of Oahu's restaurant gems.
The best service we had on our trip to Hawaii!! We had a lovely waitress, Kylie and the others were just as great! Top service, excellent food and an amazing view! The perfect way to end our trip on the last night with a surprise complimentary dessert for this occasion! Will definitely recommend this place and return the next time we are in Hawaii! The side table preparation was fun and the night was certainly memorable!
Great find just down the beach from Waikiki. Window walls open the whole area. Wonderful menu and quite tasteful live performer ask for Pasha for your watiter, you couldn't ask for a better server. If you like ocean breezes and the beach at Waikiki while you eat this is it.
