We has a absolutely wonderful dinner here on our last night in Honolulu. We sat by the open window looking out onto the torch lit beach. It could not have been more romantic. Our waiter Shiggy was helpful, non intrusive and professional. The fish was terrific, steamed onaga. We started with the seafood appetizer-lots of fresh shellfish. The wine list... More

Had the pleasure of dinning and experience of fine dinning at Michele's on the 4th. They had 4 star service and saw to our every need. The food was delicious. The appetizer to desert lived up to the recommendation. On the waterfront with a view of Waikiki. Would return in a heartbeat. Price tag is high especially if you order... More

After reading all the glowing reviews and seeing a Zagat recommendation we decided to leave our comfort zone of what we consider worthwhile restaurants for our annual Hawaii vacation. When we arrived we were seated in a very sunny location with the sun blaring on us. We noticed there were sunshades that had been rolled down for other tables but... More

My husband and I went to dinner at Michel's to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We had read about it and saved our visit for a special occasion as it is a high end restaurant. We were so impressed we will not wait long to return. The restaurant is situated next to a canoe club and we watched the paddlers... More

We would come to Oahu without dining at Michel's. Been coming here for 30 years. Open for dinners only beginning at 5:30pm. We always request a "window" table and get there early. They always say those tables cannot be guaranteed and are first come, first serve. We were the 2nd couple to be seated and were told all the "window"... More

We celebrated our anniversary here and had a delightful dinner experience. Amazing view of the sunset, excellent service, and the food was delicious. I was concerned that it would be on the expensive side, but overall, I didn't feel it was too bad. We had a great dining experience and I would definitely come back again when in Waikiki.

Michel's Restaurant at the Colony Surf is indeed a Paradise on all levels! Superb cuisine with flavors and intricate attention to detail right down to the individual grain of spices. The delicious notes and essences float across the palate, in sync, as if in a ballet performance allowing your brain to have a VIP front row seating. The Executive Chef... More

We recently had a party of 6 for a small wedding dinner at this restaurant. The service was fantastic, the food was the best we have had in a long time, not one dish from any of our group could be faulted, a rare thing to happen. Highly recommended restaurant, if you can go there, make sure you do, Not... More

We have always made a point of having dinner here whenever we are on Oahu. We enjoyed a glass of Maryhill Chardonnay from Washington state and really enjoyed it. The seafood is exquisite and never disappoints .
