Had a late brunch here. Loved the tropical pancakes and the view! Our server, Katie?, was great. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

I had eaten at the Hula Grill on Maui and had been keen to try the Waikiki version. It didn't disappoint. In fact I ate there on two nights (one of them Valentine's Day) and both times I was given a table on the lanai overlooking the pool and beach at sunset. The staff really went out of their way...

We spent the day down in the area doing so shopping and checking out Waikiki Beach. We found this place after searching on trip advisor for reviews, we were not disappointed! Aside from having to carry our stroller up the stairs everything went flawlessly. The table we were sat at looked out over the beach and the waitress was very... More

Wife had shrimp carbonara, I wanted the rib eye steak with peppercorn sauce but was not feeling like a 16 oz steak. The waitress created the same meal with a smaller portion. Both meals were delicious. The service was great. A little hard to find, it is above Duke's, but worth the trip.

We've always had great food here - and even with a slight wait, it's much quicker than Duke's. The happy hour food is excellent, drink specials are delicious, and the service is always Hawaiian-friendly. Even if you can't get a table with a view, this is a relaxing spot to grab a bite and/or a sip. HIGHLY recommended!

We went in the afternoon, so the actual restaurant is closed between lunch and dinner, but you can still do "aloha hour" in the bar (my children were with me, so that is allowed). I felt there were plenty of enticing options, even on the limited menu. I had truffle fries and baby back ribs. The ribs were flavorful and... More

We made reservation online and was seated immediately upon arrival for dinner. The view from the balcony was awesome. Our server was enigmatic and guided us on what to order. We ordered the pan seared fresh mahi mahi with mashed potato beautifully presented, and fresh market noodle bowl. Poke tacos for appetizer which was hard to eat because the taco... More

The food is top notch. I can't say enough about the view though. Ask for a Lanai (patio) table when you reserve.

Went here for an early Valentine's dinner because we like the view of the beach and the ocean from the second-level location. The chef's special was one of the best fish dishes I've ever had! The drinks and service were all fantastic, making this a perfect meal out.

With a choice view of Waikiki beach, second floor above Dukes, located in the Outrigger Waikiki Beachcomber between the historic Moana and Royal Hawaiian, the breakfast menu is traditional with a local twist. Eggs Benedict on ban mi rolls with locally sourced ingredients, Mochi strawberry waffles, omelettes and an amazing loco moco with short ribs and fried rice. A nice... More
