    I have eaten here many times and both the food and the service is consistently excellent. The sushi and sashimi selection is somewhat limited, but the quality is first rate. The Oysters Rockefeller are the best I've ever had--anywhere.

    Hawaii Prince Hotel - Prince Court, has the best customer service. We were greeted with a friendly smile by pleasant and friendly hostess. We had a very nice table by the window and enjoyed a delicious brunch buffet. I wish I had a bigger appetite so I could have tried more of the food. The wait staff is very friendly and my coffee and water were never below half. As we were leaving, every one working there said bye and thank you as we walked past them. It was such an enjoyable dining experience!!!

    The Prince Court remains my favorite place for Sunday Brunch! The variety of food, its flavor, and freshness is outstanding. The food servers are personable, friendly and attentive. The view overlooking the harbor is gorgeous. There was a large group dining next to us that were a little boisterous at times, but overall it was a nice experience.

    I dinedat Prince Court many many time, overall, it is a very relaxing place for lunch with good view of harbor and ocean, great variety of foods and friendly services. Only dissatisfaction this time is that the hotel must have implemented a new system with the prepaid parking machine. The parking fee is $4, if you pay by cash and insert in a $10 bill, the machine did not spill out the changes as it used to do, and no instruction as how the changes wl be handled. Nevertheless, you wl have to keep wait and looking for something to happen. Then, you found there is a little receipt at the bottom box called Refund ticket for the change, but did not tell you where and how to get the refund. Asked staffs in the hotel, no one seems know.

    With two types of crab and the Sushi Bar and my favorite Shabu Shabu. A wonderful place to bring the family or to entertain out of town guests. With all the yummy desserts our Anniversary was celebrated with a piece of Tiramisu, so delicious! The service was excellent as usual where your water glass was never empty. The view was gorgeous as we watched the sky turn a bright orange before the sun went down. We'll be returning soon!

The service was excellent, Ronald and Phil both great servers and entertainers. Went there for my wifeʻs 50th bday. We had a party of 10 and they gave us a free private room which they normally charge $100 for. Overall everyone enjoyed themselves and we definitely will be back again.

    Every Saturday the Prince Court serves a Hawaiian lunch. The cuisine is more authentic and tasty than luaus. Especially good are chicken long rice, steamed fish, luaus, poke, and oxtail soup. Poi was very fresh. For less adventuresome palates tempura and shabu shabu are also available. Servers are congenial and efficient.

    2 of us had the buffet and enjoyed it. 2 had the rib eye steak and was disappointed because the "char" was overwhelming and bitter but the steak did not look burnt and also the steak was cut a bit thin. Had to drown it in sauce to eat it. Expensive but not good steak and we were very disappointed.

    Prince Court is my favorite buffet in town. Food is always fresh, great variety, and price is right. Always look forward to handmade sushi, lots of choices for Asian-inspired dishes and a great dessert table. Have always enjoyed the fact that the servers are attentive and friendly.

    There were 14 of us celebrating Fathers Day at Prince Court Restaurant's seafood buffet. I received a call earlier in the day, saying there was a cancellation, would we like to be seated in the private dining room at no charge. We were treated with a beautiful, private room with a gorgeous view of the marina. The food was outstanding...exquisitely, painstakingly prepared with careful attention to every detail. There was something for everyone, keiki through senior citizens, seafood lovers through meat lovers. Phillip, our waiter, was awesome, attentive to our needs, entertained us with his high pour coffee routine and magic tricks. This seafood buffet is THE BEST buffet on Oahu...we tried others, NOTHING compares or even comes close!

    Prince Court has been around a long time and for good reason. They are consistent in food and service. Look, there isn't anything life-changing about the food, so I wouldn't consider it foodie heaven, but you can count on it to be consistent in taste and there are many items to chose from across the different cuisines. They probably have the least dessert, but should you be eating that much sugar? LOL. The price, 40-ish, for brunch is reasonable. It's also clean, well-lit and the view is pleasant. I always leave satisfied. You will too.

    Went on a Saturday night for my girlfriends' birthday. Great seafood buffet. It was not that busy for a Saturday night, so did not have to stand in line for long. The only deduction was that the king crab legs were a little dry. The parking in the hotel has changed since the last time we were there last year. It is automated (no attendant at the exit), have to pay at the machine on the mezzanine.

    This is the second year in a row that some of us senior professors have gotten together to host a retirement luncheon for one of our very special colleagues. The Hawaii Prince Court restaurant was our first choice of restaurants because of the good food, lovely view, and great service. You did not disappoint us! Our waiter was superb - he was always smiling and so friendly. He willingly took our group photos. It was a very busy day, but he somehow managed to provide great service. We look forward to our next retirement get-together at Prince Court! Thank you so much for another memorable luncheon.

    We had heard good things about their brunch, so we went to check it out. Definitely a good variety and the food was OK, though nothing amazing. Typical buffet fare, but with way more emphasis on fish/Asian cuisine than traditional brunch. Service was great, but the ambience was so lacking. Like being in a conference room at a hotel...which you are. Definitely not worth the really hefty price tag. Won't return.

    Amazing selections of appetizers, hawaiian food, desserts, sea food, main entries which is very good for groups with diff taste buds. The food is of high quality and the harbor view is absolutely amazing. It is located in Prince Hotel so it has a very classy feel for a very good price. It's cheaper than going to Todai or Shore bird.

    We went on a Saturday and the place was packed, as we had hear you only can get in with reservations. I was surprised that the food was not kept hot (although they were in chaffing pans) and I mentioned it to the waiter and he said he would speak to the kitchen. Well, nothing was done and even though it was packed some of the dishes remained just warm or nearly empty. I heard such wonderful things about the seafood buffet, but went away disappointed. Maybe we will try it again after a few weeks.
