Great place for that special evening meal

Make reservations well ahead of time and ask for a window seat so that you can watch the sun set. I recommend the Chateau Briand for two and either the soufflé or crème brulee. The soufflé requires an advance order to be prepared. Excellent service and great food, but be prepared to pay for it... read more

We have dined at Michel's many times but last night was terrible! Cocktails however were great and service excellent All our dishes were very poor,old fashioned and badly presented. The onion soup was disgusting,my husband complained and changed to lobster bisque which was thin and watery. We were told they had " run out of fish" so I had a... More

The restaurant is quite nice, the view beautiful, the staff impeccably dressed and the food quality was ok. But the service was quite slow and the meal overpriced, in my opinion. This was the most expensive meal in the three islands we visited and not our favorite. The lobster bisque could have had more lobster. The risotto was slightly heavy.... More

Sunset dining on the beach in wakaki, what is not to like? Great seafood, great wine, a spectacular view, and good service all make for an outstanding dining adventure. The Cesar salad is one of the best I have had.

My wife and I have visited Oahu a number of times and decided to try Michel's. We have always seen reviews that people either love it or are disappointed. Upon doing some research, it seemed the negatives were based on

Reservation required. Ambiance is wonderful, great for a Romantic evening, dining with family, or a celebration. View of Waikiki and sunsets is amazing. Food was exceptional, and the service top notch. This is a high priced meal, with an extensive wine list, but worth it.

We live in Australia and were recently married in Hawaii. At the recommendation of our wedding planner we had our wedding dinner at Michel's At the Colony Surf. We were given a table right by the edge looking out to the ocean and the lights of Waikiki. It was amazing. The staff, the food, the atmosphere - everything was exceptional.... More

We made reservations for 6pm at Michel's thinking it would be a good time to eat and be there for the sunset. This is truly the best time to have dinner there! I read mixed reviews about Michel's prior to our visit there, and was a little concerned about this. It felt like maybe it was an old style French... More

We made reservations at Michel's At the Colony Surf for Friday night May 15, 2015. We celebrated our 20th anniversary here in 2013 and so we decided to visit the restaurant once again. I requested a table with open window view of the ocean. We arrived and was seated immediately. Everyone from hostess, water girl, waiter were not only friendly... More
