Michel's at the Colony Surf Ratings and Reviews
Great ambience as always past forty years since I have been
coming. Loved the harp music and sunset. Service is attentive but seems short-handed. Would have like even more authentic cuisine such as escargot on the shell with herb garlic and butter and less sweet. More brandy and less creamy lobster bisque. More crispy outside and more tender inside duck l'orange. Crepe Suzette right on.
We felt welcome from the moment we arrived and were shown to our window table. Spectacular views of Waikiki and Downtown Honolulu. Julio prepared our Caesar salad at the table, as well as the Steak Diane which was tender and delicious. The main sizes are very generous and are served as a complete meal ... no need to order additional sides. Perfect for a special night.
The atmosphere is unbeatable at sunset with the Friday afternoon boat races going on as the sun goes down. We even had 2 monk seals napping on the beach in front of us. The music from Jeff Petersons slack key guitar was unbeatable. The food was really good with the waiter helping us decide on some off menu items to satisfy our particular needs. A memorable night.
Absolutely amazing experience. We showed up an hour early since we were coming from quite a distance and the staff was very accommodating by setting up a small table for our group of 4 to have cocktails while we waited for our table. Once we were seated our waiter was excellent and the food was all perfectly done and we were quite happy with the portion sizes considering most high end restaurants like this tend to go too small. Michel's specialties include their tableside preparation of certain items like their Caesar Salad and desserts. Again, flawless execution.
The setting is perfect with every table having amazing views so if you're not window front it doesn't take away from the experience.
We will be coming back. One of my best dining experiences in any of the Hawaiian islands.
Always a pleasure, dining at Michel's is a special treat. The service is impeccable, and the foo, delicious. The atmosphere is old-fashioned elegance. if you want to enjoy the sunset, be prepared for some squinting before the sun goes down. Hope to celebrate more special occasions at Michel's.
Lovely evening celebrating our 35th anniversary. We enjoyed the Chef's tasting menu with wine pairings. We had a great time, as always. The only snafu was when we were seated, the hostess attempted to put us at a table behind the glass next to a very large party. (This surprised me as our reservation was made several weeks in advance.) Luckily, our seating request was accommodated and we were taken to a better table. We are fans and we'll be back.
i enjoy brunch there. the ambience cannot be beat and it is not a buffet. unfortunately, they do brunch for just a few special days like easter, mothers' day and fathers' day. maybe one or two other days during the year. otherwise, they are only open for dinner.
My girlfriend Julie and I try to go to Michel's on every visit to the island of Oahu. From their Slack Key, Classical guitarist Jeff Peterson, to the personal touch of general manager, Phillip Shaw, the quality of service and ambiance of the restaurant is hard to beat anywhere in the world. Our favorite part of the restaurant is the table side preparation of their special dishes. On this visit we had Caesar salad for two and finished the night with bananas flambé. Outstanding!
