    A heartfelt thanks to Kathy Scott for going the extra mile to make our morning visit extraordinary and special. My waffle with berries and whipped cream and my wife’s avocado toast were absolutely delicious. If you are looking for great food, attentive service and ambience, this is the place!!!

    Great experience right up until the point where the Manager interrupted our conversation to tell us to quiet down that our conversation was inappropriate as there were children present at the next table.

    Arrived @ 15 minutes prior to reservations and wanted to seat early for cocktails, was told to wait until my reservation time ..no one else were seated, dining room was empty, but people were arriving....???!!!...don't understand their logic for making people wait until their "actual reservations time"...? Consequently we did not have cocktails.

    We have been going for years. Has it improved? Not really. The food has usually been good. Service has usually been okay. There are some very good servers. We usually have to beg to get in their sections and they are not very accommodating when we try. To them the entire staff is equal - not so. The restaurant seems to lose esthetic charm on each visit. It's not a high-end restaurant look. On the water with no views as there are no lights at night. In fact, the lights on the entire property are usually out! Yet, we still go. It's on the rotation of place we stop at. The entire property is looking a bit neglected.

    Dining on the Oceanfront What an enjoyable evening! Greeted by the friendly hostess staff was just the beginning of a memorable evening. The evening started with delicious oysters as we watched the sunset from Waikiki. Brian, a friendly and accommodating server, helped us throughout the evening. We enjoyed the food that was prepared with perfection…mmm great! I was delighted and surprised with a lei and special dessert. A celebration night that appealed to the senses. Hey, Kama’ainas celebrate with loved ones and support this hidden gem.💕

    Food (Octopus and Gnocchi) was over cooked. For example, it was difficult to cut the octopus and extremely tough to chew. Felt rushed and was in and out within 40 minutes. Overall, overpriced for quality of food and atmosphere. On a positive note, server was very friendly and attentive.

    We had made dinner reservations here. The oysters are really good. I ordered the octopus, for that price it was not worth it, plus it was super chewy. The steak & tuna ahi was sooo good. Drinks are good too. It was enjoyable

    Very family friendly restaurant, which is not what we expected based on restaurant description. Not a good place if you were expecting a more adult environment. Hosts were very friendly and Server was great. Attentive but not overly. Cioppino was delicious. Octopus tasted great but the portions for the price was extremely disappointing. Expected one tentacle and got a small piece the size of my finger. Steak was not a good quality. A lot of gristle and fat. Potatoes very under seasoned.

    Like everything in Hawaii, it’s pretty, but that was it. The filet had no flavor and our server seemed like she didn’t want to be there. 200 bucks for dinner and I expected a better experience.

    Overpriced, average quality food at $50 - $75 per plate. Can get much better dinners with same or better views just a few minutes down the road. Even if you pay for an uber both ways, you’ll still save money and have a way better experience.

    My husband and I were very excited to eat at this restaurant for my birthday. There were several awards posted outside the restaurant up to 2019. So these were pre-Covid times. Unfortunately,our experience was much less than award-winning. We started with the Burrata. It was just average and needed salt and pepper. I had the fish which was severely overcooked and under seasoned. My husband had the 9 ounce fillet which was cooked to his liking but also not seasoned. Also put on our open table reservation that it was my birthday. No happy birthday or anything special.Due to our underwhelming experience we decided to skip dessert. If you plan on going to this restaurant, I would check it off your list. Highly disappointing!

    Our overall experience was not good. My wife does not drink and the bartender kept asking to put alcohol in her drink. We had to raise our voices to decline multiple times to not add alcohol to her juice. We ordered the surf and turf meal for $75. We got a meatball size steak and a shrimp size lobster (Terrible). I paid $225 for our meal and was extremely disappointed with the overall experience. Save your money the food was overrated and the ambiance was poor.

    The meal started slowly as we waited 25 minutes past our reservation time to be seated….but, wow! The wait was worth it. Every aspect of dinner was superb: our waiter, Bradley, was excellent, the food exceptional, and the view can’t be beat. While expensive, I actually felt it was worth every penny. Highly recommend this for a special meal.

    Incredible service- Kai was amazing, very attentive, friendly and kind. Outstanding food. Ahi poke appetizer and mahi mahi entree were delicious, melted in your mouth, all food was high quality and good portion sizes. Kid’s butter pasta was a great hit ( so much so that my kid ate 2 portions). Dessert was amazing. Prices were appropriate for a quality restaurant in a nice resort, this was the best experience. I can’t believe this restaurant wasn’t rated higher in other reviews!

    Even though I had booked way in advance and had requested a table where we could see the beach- none of that seemed to make a difference on the night and we were seated in a seat where a pillar blocked my view so if I stretched from one side to the other I could get a glimpse of part of the beach. Nothing special from our server. He was very nice but just got the job done and didn't make any other conversation. I guess they don't read or adhere to what you request. Disappointed that we didn't get a seat down at the back, with a clear view- as requested but didn't want to even ask because that's what I was trying to avoid on the night. It was our last night and just wanted to relax and enjoy. The food was okay but there's plenty of restaurants in the area just as good albeit without the view- but we didn't have that anyway.

    The check-in process was simple, the server was condescending, and a bit curt. The filet was overcooked and tasted bland. The risotto was wonderful, crab cake was wonderful, the catch of the day was a bit under seasoned as well.
