Michel's at the Colony Surf
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.
This restaurant was the highlight of our visit to Waikiki. From the greeters at the front door to the soft gentle live music to our wonderful waiter ( sorry I do not remember your name) it was a night to remember! The menu was a culinary delight. Every bite was a wonderful. This kitchen staff knows what they are doing A gem in the middle of a historic beach town. Make your reservations now! Oh did I mention the sunset was also a bonus !
Great location by the beach. Friendly yet professional service. They have a valet parking also. Food is great too. They know how to entertain. I took my two boys including an infant one. This restaurant knows what to do with them and the open air atmosphere pardons kids a bit going loud. I hope I can go there again. Recommended.
Celebrated Easter with dinner here. This is one of my favorite places to go because of the ambiance and view. They have a friendly staff that is attentive and accommodating.
Our daughter had an easter brunch here 13 years ago and never stopped raving about it so of course we had to go. Teddy, our waiter was kind and attentive, the signature cocktails were wonderful and we were sorry we couldn't try everything on the menu. The courses were served in a timely fashion and we were encouraged to stay after and enjoy the view. The valet parking added a lot to the experience.
Michel’s was awesome! The atmosphere is simply fabulous! The service couldn’t have been better and the entire meal was scrumptious but my absolute favorite was the warm spinach salad, prepared table-side!! The dining experience was superb!
Michel’s view of the ocean is spectacular. Make sure you make reservations near sunset, it is amazing. Food and service top notch!
It was my second visit.
I always enjoy the wonderful scenery and food.
I will visit again.
I am very happy with David
Daughter’s birthday. She never has never come close to having such an elegant restaurant with the view and services. Because of her dietary preference, she was only able to have a salad. Nevertheless, she enjoyed it very much and is definitely an experience she will never forget.
Disappointed to have small children screaming and crying...
The service was a bit off the usual outstanding standard we expect at Michels. We spoke with the general manager and he is committed to ongoing training and positive reinforcement, so we expect the service to improve before the next time we go to our favorite restaurant.
Amazing food and view. Had a little opera singing and the man in with the guitar was excellent
Best restaurant in Waikiki !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
