Michel's at the Colony Surf Ratings and Reviews
The chef very graciously accommodated a special request to change the fish on the special of the day for the best meal I've ever eaten at Michel's. And our server, Shugy (pardon the misspelling) was superb. The setting, food, and service were exemplary! My only regret is that I can only dine at Michel's when I am vacationing in Honolulu.
Great service, outstanding ambience. At some beachside restaurants the view is the attraction. Here, the food is just as impressive. Service can be a tad slow on a busy night, but they make every effort to give you their personal attention . Caesar salad and lobster bisque are prepared table side.
the view from every table is outstanding for sunset. it was a birthday celebration and I booked a month ahead but I don't know why I didn't get a better table.. too bad. view and service are 5 star. food is really mediocre I thought but not bad in any way. dessert however (chocolate cake of some sort) was amazing.
The service and drinks were fantastic. Escargot, very well cooked but would have liked with maybe some Parmesan. The ahi tar tar was amazing. My husband had the lamb and I had procuitto wrapped mahi. Both were good but lacked some flavor. I think we could have gotten just as good of a meal for half the price.
What a wonderful evening! I had some friends join me for dinner and celebrated a girlfriends birthday. We were so lucky to get a window table. Our server Jay (I believe) was so attentive to us! Our waters were always topped off our wine was always refreshed. Our food was fantastic! Escargot, fois gras, lamb, duck all was delicious! We raved the whole evening! I would return in a heartbeat
The food and the environment were terrific. We went on a Friday night around 7:30 and we were sat immediately even tough our reservation was not until 8. The server welcomed us and offered a cocktail. The Hilton fireworks stared at 8 and we had a great view. We then ordered the pre fix meal which was amazing. The reason I gave the food 4 stars instead of 5 was the size of the portions both for the food and accompanying wines. They were so small and I left wanting for more. Everything else about this restaurant is what you would want in a fine dinning establishment in wiakiki!
As always the ambiance and the service are just impeccable. We were celebrating a birthday and they do such a great job of making it special without being overly ceremonious. This is a place locals know about but tend to forget and it really is a great place for any occasion. We all enjoyed everything about our dinner.
We remember Michel's from 10 yrs ago...slacks, shoes, socks, no shorts and no tank tops...used to be men had to wear dinner jackets. We arrived and got a beautiful ocean front table and had our pre-dinner cocktails. We noticed two Japanese couples with the men in shorts and shoes (no socks). I got up to inquire at the maitre'd desk had the website Dress Code changed recently (as I would've enjoyed wearing shorts for dinner). The Gen. Mgr. came over and explained the attire is now "resort casual" and he would update the website "Dress Code". Now, that all out of the way, food was phenomenal, service exceptional, and a wonderful evening overall.
Dining at Michel's is always a pleasure. Chef Hardy is not only a talented chef, but so gracious in that he personally comes to the table to say thank you for dining at Michel's. His staff is very versatile and attentive to make ones dining there a special evening.
A very special evening with outstanding service and fabulous food. While we weren't seated right in the window, all the tables have views due to the mirrored walls. We enjoyed the creative cocktails, including an awesome one with Hibiscus vodka, St Germain and an edible hibiscus flower. The tableside service added a nice touch. Caesar salad, a delightful Seafood in Papillote and my Steak Diane were all wonderful and we enjoyed the little theatre of the preparation. Our waiter Jason was well versed with the outstanding wine list and was able to help us make a great decision on a bottle. All in all a delight way to spend our anniversary. I highly recommend Michels.
Wow! This place has really gone downhill! You need to re-tool this place completely and start over. Felt like I was at Denny's with the tables crowded together, harried, over worked waiters, noise, and general lack of sophistication. I have been coming here for 30 years, and it is very sad to witness the death of an iconic restaurant like Michel's. so sad!
The open air dining right next to the beach was very nice. In the evening you can see the sunset and at night the Waikiki lights. Food was excellent... appetizers... ahi tartare, fresh oysters and their signature escargot were so delicious ... followed by entrees of the house special crusted mahi-mahi and pork shank... then to finish with Michel's famous table-side prepared cherry jubilee! Superb wine pairing as well. And of course great service. It was certainly a memorable evening for the 3 of us.
Michel's has been our perennial favorite Oahu restaurant over the past few decades so we took my parents there for my dad's 87th birthday. The food was fantastic but the service was a bit less so this one night. It turned out that our server was also working another table at which a couple he knew well were dining and he was distracted, spending much more time at their table of 2 than at our table of 5. Our service suffered as a result. This is the first time the service has been less than superb, so we will definitely return when next we visit Oahu.
