Michel's at the Colony Surf Ratings and Reviews
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.
Old school dinning. Keeping the art of table side service alive... from the Caesar salad and steak Tartar to the Steak Diane...a wonderful experience. Team of hosts are alway there but you never feel rushed. Thank you all for a great evening . Oh did I mention the sunset...that was done table side too.
Our last night in Honolulu is always at Michel's. And this time once again it did not disappoint. Absolutely fabulous! We had the same entree of lobster thermodor and tenderloin. It was outstanding! The flaming lobster bisque was to die for! The cherries jubilee was beyond heaven on a plate! Our waitress Kylie was amazing and terrific! Loved it all!
We've enjoyed Michel's at the Colony Surf for several years and truly enjoyed each visit and experience. We're welcomed / greeted heartily by Phillip and spoiled by everyone through the evening. The beach is so close that family & friends thought we were on a sunset cruise...I thought the palm trees would have given us away. You'll enjoy your occasion with delicious and beautiful dining and views. You'll remember the night for years!
We got a great table by the beach with an excellent view, according to my reservation on Open Table a few months prior. Everything (seat, food, drinks, service etc.) was perfect and I would like to return at my special occasions. I would like to thank the staff at Michel's once again for my wonderful experience.
Upon walking in, I was stunned by the AMAAAAAAZING views. This is by far, the best ocean view resturant I've eaten at. Our reservation was for 6:15, which was perfect as we had the opportunity to watch the sunset. Simply beautiful!!!! Nothing can top it. I will say our server David was not very welcoming. He seemed rude and uninterested in serving. I asked him if I could view the menu. He said, "Oh you don't want to enjoy a drink and relax? (With a condescending tone). What? Let me make my own damn choices. Wth?? Definitely rubbed me the wrong way!!!! We asked to try two different types of wines, then ended up ordering a bottle of wine.....and what do ya know....David's whole demeanor changed. All of a sudden, he was very nice and talkative. Is it because of the expensive price of the wine? I hope not. Ugggghhh. All people should be treated the same, regardless of what they order.
We ordered the table side Caesar salad and lobster bisque for appetizers. The bisque was excellent. The lobster was flambéed and then added to the bisque. Both dishes were delicious!!!! Furthermore....the salad was so delicious that I ordered it as an entree with grilled chicken. Getting food prepared table side is special within itself ;-)
We also ordered the 22 oz porterhouse steak; medium. The steak was obviously rare. We sent it back and it was returned to us still rare. We showed the steak to our server (David), who also agreed it was rare. David suggested that the steak be cut then cooked, because of how thick it was. Upon receiving the steak the third time, it still wasn't cooked properly...but close to what we had initially requested. If I'm going to pay $65 for a steak, it needs to be cooked properly. I don't care how thin or thick it is.
I informed David that it was unacceptable for the steak to be sent back twice. David said, "yea" agreed and just walked away nonchalantly without apologizing or rectifying the situation. Horrible communicator and terrible customer service
The meal was tasty as it was. However, although I ate the same thing at the other restaurant the other day, it was delicious and the price was reasonable. This was the same opinion of all the family members.
Anyway, the service was terrible. I ordered the bottle with wine, but the person in charge at the table had forgotten the order. Besides, I could not serve wine well.
My wife's birthday cake that I ordered beforehand came out on the table, but the person in charge does not hear the order of drinks such as coffee. Probably, I asked the person in charge and ordered. I was surprised that the level was too low.
The location was good on the seaside side, but I did not want to go to this restaurant again.
By the way, because the location is good, I took lots of pictures but I never been told from the waiter of this restaurant, "Shall I take a picture?"
