Michel’s at the Colony Surf

I admit that I was probably in a wonderful cloud from just being proposed to on their beach, but I was impressed with my overall experience at Michel’s. The staff was wonderfully laid back and attentive. I just love the wonderful Hawaiian hospitality. The food was also very enjoyable. Finally, you can’t beat having dinner facing the beach with the cool breeze and beautiful Hawaiian sunset, and you have the perfect view of Waikiki from Diamond head.
We enjoyed fresh oysters, the ahi duo, which was a perfect combination of ahi carpaccio with light truffle vinaigrette and ahi tartar with red tobikko, diced onions, & walnut oil, seared sweet and fatty foie gras, had a bonus of passion fruit sorbet that I thought was too sweet, and prime black angus filet mignon, kona crab stuffed in a succulent 1/2 Maine lobster, alongside hamakua mushrooms, asparagus, with a wild mushroom sauce & vin blanc.
Conclusion: Perfect not overbearing not snooty service. Not the best food that I’ve had but very good food. Perfect ambiance. 4/5 beepz.
