    I felt like I had stepped into an episode of the original Hawaii Five-0. It was charming and my dinner was great, but my husband's steak was a little tough. They had live hawaiian-style music that wasn't too loud, a lady took our picture at our table (which we didn't buy), and they gave us a cup of ice cream because it was our anniversary. There menu is expensive but their daily specials make it reasonable. We will definitely go back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP
    Dined on 11/3/2014
    despite the many excellent reviews, we were very disappointed given the large competition of excellent restaurants in this neighborhood. the check-in was very inefficient, although it did not seem to be too crowded. Our opentable does not seem to make any difference to the walk-ins, we had to wait in-line with all the others, although we were absolutely on-time. the food was mediocre (to say the best), the servers were attentive, but obviously totally overloaded. Most important seemed to be the photographer walking around trying to find a victim for a picture. We will not come back, as there are many other and much better choices in the immediate neighborhood.

    The view and the waitstaff were fantastic, but the food was fair. My rice and fish had no flavor although both were cooked well. Two of my shrimp were cooked properly, but the rest were over cooked and mushy. My THREE small asparagus were cooked properly. My husband's pork chops were very dry and over cooked. Way too expensive for what we got. Will not be returning.

    I went with my boyfriend for his birthday. We ordered two steaks. His steak was just ok but it was the higher priced steak. My steak was horrible. Very dry and rubbery. I just took two bites and couldn't eat anymore. To make things worse, the waiter didn't offer to take it off the bill. I will not be going back.

    Me and my husband came to eat here because it was highly reccommended by a friend of his. We were celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary. We were seated in a nice area overlooking the harbor. We had our picture taken..too bad we had to pay but it was a nice picture of us. The food was excellent. Our waiter and other staff treated us really well. We look forward to dining here again.

    We made reservations for diner after having cocktails the week before . They sat us at a table that we shares with two other tables. I asked if they had something that wasn't back in a closet and that I shared with two other tables and they told me if I wanted another table it would be a hour wait. We sat ate the ribs were not good my wife had stuffed ahi and I think they used a cheaper fish. All in all I love Chart House And someone owes me an apology.

    We came here to celebrate my grandma's birthday. I was a little worried because some reviewers had called it "noisy" but we didn't find that that was the case. We were seated in the dining area with a lovely view of the harbor. Our server was friendly and efficient and the food was good! (Except for the steak, which was not great). Tip: On Friday nights, you can see the fireworks from the Hilton, so ask for a seat with a view. :)

    The Chart House on the Waikikii marina is very beauitful. The service was good, but the place was busy and your party can get lost. The baby back ribs were very large and fell off the bone. The NY strip steak had a great flavor, but was like chewing beef jerky, tough. The The French onion soup lacked a base and was watery. Having said all that the place is worth a second chance. Just stay away from the NY strip steak.

    I've eaten at several Chart House restaurants and this location was as good as all the rest -and that's pretty good! My wife and I were seated outside facing the Marina. The scenery was pleasant, the food was delicious -the best stuffed shrimp I've ever had, and our server was truly concerned about pleasing us. My water glass never reached half empty! The only thing that was am issue was the obnoxious know it all at the next table correcting the hard-working waiter on the attributes of a certain fish. Not the restaurant's fault. A great place to get away from the Waikiki Beach crowd.

    Arrived 15 minutes late, misread what time I booked, they still held Our table overlooking the harbour, very friendly staff and very efficient, we booked the set menu and that was good quality value for money, 3 courses for $30.95. My wife had the pork and I had the steak, cooked to perfection, for sweet I had the key lime pie which was enormous. Would highly recommend this restaurant, I'm booking again before we leave this gorgeous Island.

    Through "Open Table", dinner reservations made the day prior to Father's Day. Using Open Table, made it easier without hassles. At the restaurant, my reservations was confirmed and seated within minutes of our reservations. The service and food was excellent. Being it was Father's Day Dinner, a large crowd was expected and the noise level was on the higher side naturally. Had been to this restaurant a few times in the past and it has been consistent with great food, drinks and service.

    We are regulars at Dukes but we rarely eat in their restaurant area. We usually go to their bar for happy hour. We were pleasantly surprised to get a reservation so quickly. It was very nice that they placed us on a great table overlooking the Ala Wai Harbor. Talk about romantic! We enjoyed the Wagyu beef as well as the Szechuan Kahuku prawns. The Kahuku prawns are to die for! They usually run out fast but for some reason I was lucky to have them on a Saturday night. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. We were too full for Hula Pie so we opted for the creme brule. If you order desert make sure you get the Hula Pie!

    I did not know that this Chart House is not a member of the Chart House chain on the Mainland. I think this explains why food was just average. Service was very good and the view was very nice to compensate.
