    Super good, my mom loved it (we went for her bday dinner). The food was great, ambiance great, just annoying how we had to literally flag our waitress for anything like more water or a drink in general, she never came back to check on us. But other than that it was great.

    The food and atmosphere here are very good, but the real point is the setting, which is lovely. It's bizarrely hard to find a place to eat outside near the beach, on O'ahu. This is about the prettiest place there is, and being well outside the city it is quiet and restful. On a previous visit I had had some indifferent service and had reported it, so on this visit we got extra attention. It's true the several staff members who stopped by to greet us did not ask if we needed anything, but I think we could have interrupted their greetings to tell them, if we had had a problem. We had a waitress-in-training, which may be the way to get the best possible service: she was careful and conscientious and efficient. She did make the mistake they all here, and did not ask if we need parking validated. We always have to run back after leaving the dining room, to find a staff person and get the validation. But again, the place is the point: it is such a pleasure to be there. After your meal be sure to walk by the dolphin pools and watch the dolphins swimming, and admire the waterfall, and go into the downstairs lobby to use the luxurious bathrooms (after experiencing the heated Japanese toilet seat you may have to buy yourself one!), and go up the stairs by the orchid wall. Check that you remembered your validation before going out to the valet parking area!

    Plumeria Beach HouseResponded 1 day agoAloha, Sasha! Pleased you had a better visit this time. We strive to deliver an exceptional experience to each and every guest. Good feedback on the parking validation ... will see what we can do about that. Mahalo for your understanding and loyalty!

    I have had some nice experiences in the past but last night the service was extremely slow. A simple dinner took over three hours. Three out of the four dishes were good. The fourth, the small bento, was ok but the fish was way over cooked and the broccoli was cold. I will say the beef in the bento was excellent.

    Plumeria Beach HouseResponded 1 day agoAloha, Lisa! Apologies for the inconsistent service. We can and will do better! Mahalo for bringing to our attention.

    Everything was impressive, from the arrival till our departure. The amazing ambiance is the first thing you will notice. Then from there the food & drinks were superb. Service was second to none for our evening. Excellent menu, so many things to choose from it was difficult to make the choice as we wanted to try so many dishes. It was upper end concerning the prices however we were not disappointed with anything we had therefore making it worth every penny. We will certainly be back again sometime in the near future. 5 stars in my book. Mahalo Plumeria Beach House for a memorable evening.

    Since the Plumeria Beach House at the Kahala Hotel is an "open" restaurant without being fulling enclosed by walls/doors for the seafood buffet, restaurant needs to have food covering/netting/mesh for all exposed food and not just the food in chafing dishes. Had to tell the restaurant staff about the fly problem whereas the restaurant should have taken preventive measures before being asked to do so. Very unappetizing to see flies landing and walking on trays of food like the shrimp cocktail. Worst yet, is also to see flies trapped by the food covering/netting/mesh enabling the flies to walk all over the food.

    We went for the curry lunch. It was great as always. We asked for our favorite waitress, Lynne. Happily she was working that day. She is absolutely delightful and a great credit to the Kahala resort. I will be back next week and the following week for lunch with friends and clients and no doubt for another curry lunch with my husband! Please be sure to let Management know and also learned that we left a great review that was well deserved. Thank you, Susie 808 258-3681 Epitome card #2025 (?) I think!😂

    The view was spectacular. We had the rib-eye and the butterfish. Both were fine. But our servers seemed very jittery and anxious. I think he was trying to be attentive but it came across like he needed to seat another party at our table. It wasn’t a dining experience that we had expected.

We came at the last seating for brunch on Father's Day so we may have been a little rushed but the staff did everything to make sure we got all we needed!

    Mostly everything was good. The only thing that wasn't as good was the noodles. It was dry. The rest was great the service was awesome the rest of the food was good. The only other thing is they should accommodate if someone wants to bring a birthday cake and not charge almost 100 bucks for it. So if you're looking to celebrate a birthday and want to bring your own. Don't do it here

    Treated my partner to Fathers Day surprise dinner where we honored his son who died 5 years ago from cancer. A firefighter, he was a father, too. My first #1 choice was Cioppino as shown on your menu and it ruined the evening when told it's not available- instead you served a fish boil??? Your team didn't know Cioppino was on your online menu! Disappointed. We loved our table. The view was calming and everyone on staff was exceptional from welcome to farewell! Mahalo.

    Local residents value family experience s. For our families especially larger families a meal together is special and especially if it is celebratory. The two hour limit makes it very difficult for families to have enough time to enjoy our meal and each other’s company. This is especially true for larger families who may not be able to be together often. A friend had booked a large party and canceled realizing that two hours would not be enough time for their family celebration. Consider a longer meal period and you will see an increase in resident reservations. I will mark my experience as positive mainly due to the service provided to our table. The food was adequate but not as great as I have eaten on previous occasions.

    Plumeria Beach HouseResponded 2 days agoAloha, Gail. We are honored to be a 'go to' for family occasions. Your feedback is appreciated and will be carefully considered. We ask for a two-hour limit on busier periods in order to honor reservation times and provide opportunity for other guests to enjoy . Mahalo for joining us and sharing your thoughts.
