Michel's at the Colony Surf Ratings and Reviews

The restaurant is in one of the most beautiful settings in Waikiki. We have dined there many times in the past, and have always come away thrilled. This time, however, the food missed the mark, and the service was not as professional as we expected. That is, the Caesar salad was ok, but lackluster. My lobster thermador could not have been smaller, and it was not flavorful. The steak, however, was excellent. The Cherries Jubilee missed altogether. My wife's vegetable plate has always been excellent in the past, but this time was very disappointing. And nothing here comes cheap, so quality should be better.

if someone has enough to spare for that special occasion, Michel's is the place. Service is excellent. Food is good. The ambiance exudes romance. Choices for food and drinks are excellent and the time of each item being offered and serve is remarkable to give enough time for that cozy conversation, the enjoyment of the food and so as to not feel full too fast.

We had a family dinner for six last Sunday. We could not have been more pleased. The food and atmosphere was wonderful. The wine list was impressive and reasonable. Jaime our server, was an absolute joy. We will surely go here next time in town.

We celebrate our anniversary every year at the newest hot dining spot. When deciding where to dine for our 40th (yes I said 40), we wanted to go somewhere really special. Michel's at the Colony Surf was suggested by my son's fiancé. I immediately made the res and wondered why we had not gone there earlier. Well, the wait was well worth it beginning with the friendly staff. You don't know the meaning of fresh seafood until you order the Iced Harvest of the Sea. A beautiful array of fish and crustaceans pleased our palates. The Onaga was steamed to perfection with a delicate ginger broth. The Wagyu steak melted in your mouth. The composition of the rest of the dish all worked except for the blue cheese. The cheese was really overpowering so next time I would "sans the cheese." The night ended with table side Cherries Julilee of course. By now we got to know our server and told him it was our 40th anniversary and we didn't announce it because we wanted the Jubilee. He offered to give us a complimentary dessert but we COULD NOT eat another morsel. So, he gave us a cheesecake to go. It was such a nice way to end our celebration!

Michel's is a special treat in Honolulu. Apart from the gourmet food and the impeccable service, the quiet of the Gold Coast setting and the beachfront view make Michel's unique in Waikiki. A sunset dinner here is a true delight!

Michels is a special place o take a special person. The menu varies with very good appetizers and great steak and seafood. Definitely not for the price conscious or budget orientated, but still worth the Fine Dining experience.

It was our 30th anniversary and we could not have been more pleased. It started with our table window side which gave us a spectacular view of sunset. The food was beyond excellent. We shared everything and ate everything presented with nothing to take home. That is rare for us. Our server made us feel so special the whole evening and when I told her at the end of our evening I think she was a bit embarrassed. We will never forget our special evening there

On Friday evening, you will enjoy the view, especially fire works! Foods were generally fine, but I don't recommend the iced fresh oysters, which didn't smell good compared to other oysters you can eat any other place like in Tokyo, Sydney or etc.

We made reservations through Open Table and were quickly seated upon arrival. We had a very nice table with a good view of the ocean and views of the other patrons. Our waiter was very helpful in talking us through the menu options. The food was excellent and they were willing to split our selections. This is one of the few great restaurants that prepare / finish their dishes table side. Service by the entire staff was very attentive. What a wonderful evening of memories from our vacation.
Friendly and trained waiters, very enjoyable and comfortable mood with food highly recommendable that should satisfy the palates of those who are used to go to expensive and best restaurants. Not to mention the view is beautiful. If you are taking someone who love to eat, laugh and enjoy, this is the place you'd most likely not fail to have such a night.
I wanted to take my wife out to someplace classy for her birthday. Haven't been here before so this popped up in my mind. They did not disappoint. Great service! Awesome food!! And even gave us a free dessert to finish off my wife's day with a sweet bang. Money worth every penny.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the world--maybe the universe! :) I couldn't come to Oahu without at least one visit to Michel's. It is a gorgeous restaurant right on the ocean with open windows providing a breathtaking view back toward Waikiki beach. It has location, location, location and outstanding, friendly servers, food--simply the best!
