  • "A friend recommended Honu since we had tickets to a show at the Paramount. This was our first time there, and we couldn't have had a better experience! We opted for small plates and a salad, and everything was absolutely delicious! Can't wait to go back."

  • "I dined with my fiance and two friends for a Wednesday dinner, and we had a marvelous meal. Not only was it "Wine Wednesday" and wine was half off, but the meals were all delicious. The service was also wonderful, and we enjoyed the atmosphere on a not-so-crowded night. I have been there on the weekends, where it is usually mobbed, but if you want to have a nice date night, going during the week is great! I highly recommend."

  • "To start off our waitress was very pushy she immediately wanted us to order so we did our drinks were great except for the coke and ice tea horrible ! Then we had our apps and all 4 were great then came our main courses all four of ours were horrible . The steak was ordered med and came out well done , the lobster tail were over cooked , and 2 seafood risotto were fishy , rice was hard only thing edible was the scallops in that dish !!! I was very unhappy !!! Then back to the waitress she was pushing for us to order desert or get up from our table for about $350 I deff would not go back !"

  • "There are so many restaurants in Huntington, Honu should be on your "staple list". We had a 8pm show at the paramount, our server (Rita) was efficient, personable, intelligent, and got us out on time! Everything was great. I had the twin lobster tails and a spinach salad ( both specials) They were DELICIOUS and cooked to perfection my dining mates also had specials with the exception of a shrimp cocktail. One of the shrimp was not cleaned very well, my friend mentioned it to Rita, who immediately, without fuss took the remainder away and off the bill. I can definitely do without dessert but ordered the sampler platter anyway. so good! I haven't been here in quite sometime...I can honestly say, I will return soon"

  • "Great place to eat at the bar or with a friends at a table. Food is very good and the menu changes seasonally. A good variety of fish choices. They are willing to make changes to the food preparation. Best roasted chicken in town."

  • "We ate at Honu during the week when it was not crowded. Dinner was excellent. The service was great. It was pleasantly quiet .Don't know if I would enjoy it as much on a crowded weekend because of parking and noise. I would definitely recommend this as a "go to" place for dinner"

  • "Honu is a great place to go out on a date. I've had an excellent first date there. They have amazing cocktails as well as small plates, perfect for a date. On the weekends, they have a DJ. Honu is also great to go out with your girlfriends. The coconut martini and pear martini were delicious. I never had an unpleasant cocktail from Honu. My girlfriend and I were there on Valentines'. The pumpkin tortellini small plate- yum! Even ordering a side of roasted brussel sprouts- Mmmm. We didn't ask for dessert, but knowing one of the waiters, he gave us chocolate covered strawberries! Love love love."

  • "Our waitress couldn't have been nicer. We went on Valentine's day for dinner and often restaurants crowd tables and hurry service and meals on this busy day. Not so Honu! The waitress was extremely courteous and jovial with a great attitude (though she had to be working on Valentine's Day!). We left there in a great mood! The only downside is the limited parking in the neighborhood."

  • "Drinks were great especially the coconut martini, which apparently they are famous for. As far as the apps, the crusted strip was delicious and the toasted gnocchi was out of this world. Only flaw was the steak was over cooked. Would definitely go back for another occation"

  • "My husband and I had a great dinner at Honu. We had a table by the fireplace. The food was excellent . I was surprised how big the portions were on the entrees. Service great too. All in all a wonderful winter evening."

  • "We went on a Sat night for a birthday and ladies night. I'll admit we were late for our reservation but were seated fairly quickly. The server was obviously overwhelmed because it took her FOREVER to return to our table for food and drink orders. She tossed a few disapproving glances our way when we did not order full entrees or even the "small plates". The food was over salted/over seasoned but presentation was lovely (I had the duck, gnocchi and a side of mashed. Others had the chicken dish and a shrimp cocktail). I'm told that he chocolate cake was to die for. The ambiance was nice & sexy until the DJ suddenly started playing EDM at alarmingly high noise levels. Other than poor service and loud music this place was mediocre at best."

  • "Across the street from the Paramount theatre. Great place for dinner before going to the show. The four of use ordered just about everything off the small plate menu and it was all very good."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "I had heard mixed reviews about Honu - it was great. The duck taco was excellent as was the quality of the raw tuna. The toasted gnocchi with sausage and arugula was very good. The short ribs were a little disappointing - dry. The ambiance was lovely - it was a very cold night and we sat by the fireplace. Enjoyed it very much."

  • "Honu is one of those restaurants that we continue to go back to as often as possible. The menu is great as it has something for everyone! We enjoy the atmosphere and always have a wonderful time!"

  • "This was our second visit and we enjoyed every bite! Sushi and rolls were delicious! It's a small place and both times there was only one waitress. But she was great, very attentive and pleasant. We will definitely be back."

  • "I love the atmosphere of this place.- It has a vibrant bar scene. However, the night we went there it was quiet as we went on a Sunday night. The food was excellent. The Chipotle Chicken Salad was enormous and tasted great. The sautéed root vegetables as a side dish was great!!! The service was excellent. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the different entrees and she made some very good suggestions. I would highly recommend this place.."

  • "The first time I went to Honu was with a group of my girlfriends on a Friday night. The food was incredible, every table was filled & the bar was packed. The second time I went to Honu was on a first date and the experience was the same as the first. Went again this past Sunday for a dinner with my boyfriend. The restaurant was a lot more quiet than it was the first two times but the experience did not disappoint. The dinner menu has great selections and the cocktail menu is fun and delicious (my favorite is the coconut martini). I recommend this restaurant to everyone!"

  • "Huntington is known for its many fantastic restaurants and variety of great food, but Honu really stands out as a personal favorite. The staff is always polite and friendly, all the servers cheerful and conscientious (we had Krista last time and she was great). We've taken friends with dairy issues, gluten free or vegetarian diets, and allergies. Everyone always had a fantastic meal. The music is varied and complements the atmosphere. It gets busy later in the evenings when the bar crowd comes out, but come early and you can have a romantic dinner by the fireplace. As for the food, the menu changes seasonally, and my trouble is always narrowing down my choices - I really have yet to find a dish I didn't like! Try it; you won't regret it!"

  • "Having heard of the fine food at Honu I reserved a table for four to dine. It was early and the bar scene was in full force. Perhaps that is why we did not enjoy our experience at Honu and do not plan to return. It was extremely noisy with loud music and conversations combined. Sorry to say we did not enjoy our visit there."

  • "I was blown away with how pretty the place is. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed such a romantic evening at Honu on Saturday. It was so cold out but the fireplace is so warm and welcoming. We started with two drinks from the cocktail list. My Ruby Red Cosmo with sugar rim was awesome! We shared a the peking duck and pumpkin tortellini, which were great to start. My Filet Mignon was cooked perfectly. My boyfriend ordered Salmon -which was surprising to me- and HE LOVED IT! The manager got us some chocolate covered cheesecake lollipops at the end which really was perfect. Definitely recommend Honu! Thanks so much! ~Jen"

  • "My husband and I were going to an event in Huntington . I had no idea where to eat, so I did my research and decided upon Honu. For a holiday night, I did not expect much but got way more than my expectations! The food was great, including the bread, appetizer, cocktails and main course! Service was amazing! Our waiter was excellent as we're the support staff. My only issues were that we sat upstairs and it was very warm (heat rises) and the top of my lobster tail, from the surf and turf, was over-cooked. Just underneath the overly crispy top was a delicious tail. The steak was great as was the mashed potatoes. My husband's pork was very good and the sweet potato hash was really yummy! I will definitely be back!"

  • "They sat us under a vent and by the glass door. Do not sit there! Management should have made sure there was no table service there. The service was poor. We had coffee and they didn't bring the refill. The waitress cared more about pushing certain foods then addressing what we would prefer. The food was good."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Appetizers and dessert was the best! Coconut martinis wee delish! On the other hand the entrees were pretty bad, no flavors and very bland! Our waitress was great but the kitchen was overwhelmed as we were told so it took us forever to get our dinner. The manager comped our meals and gave us after dinner drinks and dessert on the house. Dj was playing pretty good music but dance floor was extremely small no room to dance!"

  • "I was sad to see one of our favorite restaurants fall off the way they did, very watered down overpriced drinks, Coconut Martini tasted like watery pineapple juice, lobster Bisque did not taste even remotely like lobster or seafood, fried calamari was very, very chewy. most small plates not impressive. Best part of the meal was tha salads."
