Honu Kitchen and Cocktails
Perfect Pre-Show ChoiceRight across the street from the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, Honu was the ideal place to enjoy a meal before the show. Staff is professional and courteous. Food delicious and beautifully plated. Ample portions and wide selection to suit every palate, from burgers and salads to steaks and seafood.
We will return!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food - terrible waiterI've been here many times and the food is always great. Our server this time was terrible. It was my husband and his friends birthday day so we asked for a dessert with a candle to sing happy birthday. He just plopped it down on the table and left - no singing - not even a Happy Birthday. He was a very matter of fact who was basically just there to take and serve orders. He was not friendly at all and he had no personality. He didn't ask us if we wanted coffee or drinks after dinner and just put the check on the table and left.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat nightMy bride and I had our anniversary dinner here. It was our first visit, and we can't wait to go back. The food was great, and our waiter, Peter, was very helpful. Half price wine on Wednesdays was a nice surprise too.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMwhat a special restaurantloved everything about this great restaurant, except the noise level which was very loud.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second visit toThis was my second visit to Honu Kitchen and it was as enjoyable as the first time. We first spent time at the gorgeous bar having drinks before dinner. They have a very good happy hour with $5 drink specials. Ordered a mango martini for $5. It was restaurant week and we expected a smaller menu selection but to our surprise and delight they presented their entire menu to choose from. Service was great and the food was delicious. It was our anniversary dinner and we could not have enjoyed ourselves more. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMParticpants in RestaurantParticpants in Restaurant week. $27.95, which is their usual prix-fixe, is a fabulous value. Food is consistently very good. Wait staff are professional and well-informed.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent birthday here at HONUI recently came to HONU for my birthday with a large group (and during restaurant week no less). The food was excellent (not a single person in a table of 15 complained, but instead all praised their meals). The restaurant is beautiful. I'll definitely come back, with a smaller group. :) I'll highly recommend HONU to friends and family.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat space and food was veryGreat space and food was very good.

We enjoyed everything :)4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat delicious steak butGreat delicious steak but miserable salads: tiny like for small child, priced poorly comparing to main meal especially when that after 5 bites the plate is empty.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBesides the fact that theyBesides the fact that they brought me a 2010 Napa Cabernet when the wine list said it was 2008, food and service was very good.
Just be sure to check vintages when ordering wine. Big difference between 2008 and 2010 Napa Cabernet.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHonu is great!!We were running about 15 minutes late and the staff accommodated my party with no problem. The service and food were outstanding. I would definately return!!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHonu - PreshowWe have bypassed Honu quite a few times and finally made a reservation. We had a nice early dinner with drinks and wine before a show in Huntington. Waite staff was wonderful. Food was very good. Duck Confit and scallops were excellent. My friends all had steaks and they were cooked perfectly.
The atmosphere is vibrant so it has some level of ambiant noise. This did not detract form our dinner as we knew this from othr reviews.
A Definate return is in order.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNot badChicken satay was really good. As was my coconut martini. The scene is definitely on the older side though. Still fun. Loud music, small dance floor.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife & I regularly visitMy wife & I regularly visit honu as one of our favourite restaurants. In a village of wonderful restauranteurs Honu is one of the very best.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place for a pre-ParamountA great place for a pre-Paramount concert dinner (or anytime, for that matter).3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been the Honu severalWe've been the Honu several times previously, and it is typically very good. We had a problem with how our food was served (appetizers and main dishes together), but to the credit of the Maitre'd, we were treated very well (apologetic, with free dessert for the gaffe, plus appetizers on the house). The food was very good, and we had pretty diverse menu items ranging from salad, shrimp cocktail, short ribs, and fish. The error in service in no way interfered with our enjoyment. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant, and will happily return again. Diners should be aware that Honu on a Friday or Saturday night is hopping with a very busy bar scene.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat nightHad never heard about Honu, but was so glad we went! The restaurant was larger than I expected, there was a large bar area. We sat on the 2nd floor, which overlooked the first floor. Good food, great ambience, I'd definitely return!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThey have a great selectionThey have a great selection of small plates. Went with a group of 5 and ordered a ton. Had a great booth to sit in, weren't rushed. Service could've been a tad quicker but since we were catching up it didn't matter much.12/28/2012 12:00:00 AM
