For our last night in Hawaii we decided to try this place. It was recommended by the hotel we stayed in and after seeing reviews we definitely wanted to come here. From the moment we stepped into the lobby of the hotel we knew we were in for a special evening. Although we had no reservation we were seated in... More

This place was pretty decent. The service was great and the food was average. They ran out of the main fish and the substitute was a strong fishy smell. Could not eat it. Our serve was great and the drinks were all good. The steak was pretty good, not as tender as it should have been but it had great... More

We ate here three times during our stay at the Halekulani Hotel because of its casual atmosphere, the food is good, and you have entertainment to watch as the sun sets. The staff is very helpful. The hostess not only called us by name but remembered our name when we came back each time, and she was fun to speak... More

One of the best places to eat if you want more than burgers. The setting is elegant and sitting outside on a warm evening is preferred. The service is attentive and fast. What they could improve is clearing the tables between customers. Sometimes they say they are full but you can see a dozen tables that haven't been cleared. It... More

I went there advised by the hotel staff and it was a very nice advice. The menu spaces a lot, from hamburger to fish dishes to steak. Every day there's live Hawaiian music up to 8.30pm. They also serve fantastic cocktails. Price is in line with the quality of the food.

On our last visit to the Halekulani, we ate at House without a Key three different nights. The menu is somewhat limited but the food is good and the ambience and nightly entertainment (excellent Hawaiian music and hula dancer) is without peer. On clear nights, the sunset behind the stage adds an incredible photo op to the surroundings. The hostess... More

We sat down about 11:00am for lunch having been up since 4:30 for pearl harbor tour. We were seated on the patio overlooking the water with a slight breeze at our backs. Waiter Dave was right there with water and complimentary bread/crackers. We ordered Kai kiwi martini and mai tai. She ordered Cobb salad and I ordered the crab signature... More

This experience in dining was so enjoyable. The food was expensive but good@! WOnderful cobb salads. The entertainment included a band and hulu dancers. LOVELY! The view of Diamondhead was the best. It was a very open restaurant with few wall. that were connected to the hotel. The bathrooms were classy.

Have a special occasion? A special date? This is the place to take your date. It has a beautiful view, ambience, elegance and delicious food. Prices.are a bit rich, but you get what you pay for. Excellent prime rib and steaks cooked to perfection. The fish was fresh and cooked perfectly. Great meals!

As usual, they have grate food.Since the big tree was broken, the lawn in front of dinning space was reduced. It was petty. Numbers of seats are increased,but nature was decreased. They have still nice atmosphere. At lunch, musicians play.
