Celebrated my mothers 60th with the whole family here. They dont take reservations so we got there at 5:45pm to get a good dining spot. Had taken lovely pics of the family with diamond head in the background. Service was A+!! Food and Drinks was delish. I do wish, however, they had a bit more food to choose from. The... More

We read a lot of reviews that advised us to watch a sunset from here, so we went. There were 12 of us and we just showed up without a reservation, so were very pleasantly surprised when we were led to the closest set of chairs/cocktail tables to the water. The setting was very nice. Right on the water, palm... More

Excellent Meal, excellent service, beautiful view, great entertainment, brilliant cocktails. Very good pricing for a high end restaurant, get there early to guarantee a seat as I'm not sure if they take bookings. Wonderful place to splurge whilst in Waikiki.

Had a wonderful late lunch early dinner at house with out keys. Nice laid back feel to grab a drink and some app's. Prices are a little high but the view is great and the music was wonderful.

The place is beautiful, food is ok and the staff could be better. I went with my family and we had steak which were good, pull pork sandwiches which had lack of flavor and some pasta which was ok. The waiter wasn't welcoming or attentive. We enjoyed the music show and the view is beautiful.

This is a nice place in a perfect setting. Most of the tables are outdoors, but shade is abundant everywhere - I don't think a single table isn't protected by an umbrella or awning. Right on the ocean, you are also treated to a nice, cool ocean breeze. Everything is upscale: linen napkins, etc.. The waitstaff are mature professionals that... More

Amazing atmosphere, live music and hula dancing. Service was incredible. Cocktails were extremely alcoholic, but no complaints! Menu limited and food a bit overpriced for what you got. Food was delicious, but very simple. Would definitely go back!

This was a delightful experience with dinner and Hula show with a famous dancer as well as a ukulele player and string guitar next to a grand tree which was preserved. The Ahi fish with salad and roasted potato were delicious. The maitai drink was excellent and the service very nice. The Hawaiian attitude of saving nature is shown by... More

We enjoyed a lovely smart casual dinner here but it’s not beach bum casual. We ate here because I had wanted to have a drink at L’Apartif upstairs. First time my husband and I went about 10 p.m. it was closed. This time, our friends were turned away because he had on shorts. So we ended up here. Honestly except... More
