Diner Reviews
  • "Dinner was great as usual. Kincaid's is one of my favorite restaurant's, I've dinned her four or five times and have not had a bad meal or service yet. I love the view and the service. I don't drink but the bar looks great to if you just want to come in for a drink and Pupu's."

  • "Every month a retired group of us get together for lunch at a different restaurant. We always come back to Kincaid's because they really take care of us there. The food is always great, the service great, the view is wonderful and Nikki the hostess is the best."

  • "I have been coming to Kincaid's for many years. The menu offers many choices and each one I have tried over the years has been excellent. This time was no exception. I especially enjoy the "Pea" salad, the Burnt Creme dessert, and the Baby-back ribs. I've had the prime rib and it's excellent too. I wouldn't spend time on Oahu without making at least one trip here. The view of the ocean is nice and Ward Warehouse has several nice shops that can be enjoyed either before or after your meal. The service was excellent, as always, and I just enjoy the general ambiance."

  • "WENT TO KINCAID'S FOR DINNER TO CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY WITH MY FAMILY, BUT WAS GREATLY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE MEAL. THE AMBIENCE AND VIEW WERE GREAT, SERVICE WAS GOOD, BUT THE FOOD TASTED TOO SALTY. I HAD ORDERED THE LOBSTER BISQUE AND THE SEARED FRESH JUMBO ATLANTIC SCALLOPS. WE STARTED WITH THE KINCAID'S TASTING SAMPLER. MY FAMILY HAD ORDERED SOME OTHER DISHES. I TRIED A SAMPLE OF THEIR DISH AND FOUND THAT THEIR FOOD ALSO TASTED TOO SALTY. I HAD BEEN TO KINCAID'S FOR LUNCH ONCE BEFORE AND THE LOBSTER BISQUE TASTED DELICIOUS. MY FAMILY WILL NOT BE RETURNING TO KINCAID'S. I MIGHT TRY GIVING THEM ANOTHER CHANCE. I HOPE I GET A BETTER CHEF NEXT TIME."

  • "Made reservations, arrived to find no one at the hostess counter. waited for more than 5 minutes, then asked one of the girls at the bar if there was going to be anyone attending to us. she was very friendly and said that someone would be there shortly - but didn't do anything about it. hostess finally appeared a couple of minutes later (she was getting some gift cards for the lady before us). Hostess got our names and promptly approached the people behind us and got their preference down. only then did she check on our reservations to tell us that they are preparing our table (note that we've been there for 15 minutes by now). Our waitress on the other hand, was very attentive, fed my 10 year old niece first. food - was okay."

  • "When we were here for lunch the previous time, the service was very slow, but we thought it was a fluke, so tried it again. This time, Saturday early lunch, we waited more than twenty minutes for water, and for the server to take our orders. No, the place wasn't packed yet. We finally ordered, and there was another looong wait. Two larger parties were seated well after us, but ordered and received their food BEFORE us. Two and a half hours for lunch...? Leisurely is fine if it was deliberately planned, and we were lingering over coffee, drinks, etc., but it was not our choice to wait so long for service. Sadly, despite the lovely view and good food, we'll be looking for someplace else for family functions."

  • "I had the Copper River salmon - a seasonal dish I've looked forward to each year. It was grilled with a side of garlic potatoes and asparagus. The salmon, which I had ordered rare, came well-done and dry except for the very center. No sauce on it. Not even lemon with it. The three stalks of asparagus had simply been lifted out of the water - no salt, no butter. When I asked if they had changed chefs I was assured that it was the same one that had produced great dishes in the past. I'd recommend requesting some of the butter Kincaid's uses on its bread so that you can give flavor to this dish."

  • "I have never been disappointed with this place. I always have great service, great food and delicious cocktails. View of the Honolulu Harbor is wonderful, perfect for sunset. Definitely a favorite place for us."

  • "We love the fish entrees at Kincaid's. We are all retired teachers and we meet once a month to talk and catch up and have a wonderful tasting meal at an eatery that has a great water view."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Brought Mom and her friend to lunch here. Wanted somewhere outside of Waikiki, but with a view of the water. Kincaid's turned out to be the perfect venue. Our table was perfect: the view was gorgeous, it was a lovely day and it was quiet. Our server was Carissa (sp?) and she was cheerful, friendly and helpful. We all enjoyed our lunches and felt very satisfied when we left. Everything combined made it a memorable, early Saturday lunch."

  • "We had the flank steak, mustard chicken, and burnt cream for dessert, as well as their special 'toro-like' salmon appetizer w/dill, creme fraiche and tobiko caviar. The pairing of salmon bellies with house-made potato chips seemed a little odd at first, but it actually worked really well. Flank steak was amazing. Not usually a fan of steak with 'stuff' on it, but the peppercorn, gravy, and blue cheese complement the well-cooked flank steak which is so flavorful its not overcome by the addition. Sides of potatoes and vegetables were decent. Nothing earth shattering, but when you're eating steak you don't really care too much about your broccolini. Service was good, no complaints there - minor hiccup with 1 drink but it was quickly resolved"

  • "The parking was easy, our table was ready when we arrived and we enjoyed a delicious meal. Our service was excellent and the food was amazing. I was surprised that such gourmet food came in such generous portions. We had the Baked Brie and it was so good, I would go back just to order that! "
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Food was good; service was good, Aaron was very nice and efficient! The Hostess staff could have done better and their booking system or program sucks because I was told my reservations was cancelled and I did not cancel it!!!Also, it took quite a while to have our table ready when the table was open and not very friendly, I was not greeted with a smile; I was the one that had to approach them. "

  • "Kincaidʻs never fails to deliver good food, beautiful views, great ambience and no noise. Itʻs a political hang-out as well and I often see my favorite politicians there. I am a fish-eating vegetarian, and am always please with the large menu including many seafood choices. I also do not drink and find many pleasant non-alcoholic beverages. Their deserts are to die for and they make a great cup of coffee. Service staff are friendly and professional. Please enjoy my favorite Honolulu restaurant."

  • "I love coming to this restaurant, the service is great, the food is delicious, fresh, not over cooked, and the view of sail boats and the water is just great. This is our go-to for lunches, any day of the week!"

  • "Have been to Kincaids on a regular basis for many years. The service is very good and am always satisfied with the meal and sometimes pleasantly surprised with certain dishes. This time I was slightly disappointed with the Copper River salmon, only because it has been so good in the past. This time it wasn't as flavorful, in fact rather bland. The pasta was very good and deserts were great. We will surely be back as Kincaids has proven quite reliable, but hoping for an upside surprise next time. "

  • "Every year, oh-h-h so good, and this year is no exception! Aaron was spot on with his service and care, and although the place was full of large graduation parties, the atmosphere was not hurried or too noisy, just fun! Our friends absolutely loved it!"

  • "We had planned to go to dinner with a friend and already made reservations through Open Table here. We found out we had some friends come in for the University of Hawaii graduation. We decided to invite them to dinner at the very last minute and called Kinkaids to change the head count. They were fully booked but made a great effort to accommodate us. We sat at different tables close together and had a great evening and wonderful dinner. They were awesome! Kris our server was great! If you get a chance to go try the grape martini. It's to die for!"

I had their chef special's pork chop, which was very tasty. Not sure how often it is served, but I highly recommend it if you like pork chops."

  • "We were given Symphony Concert tickets, so decided to TRY to get reservations for dinner (party of 2), ONE day before! By then, openings available at 5:15PM or 7:45PM, took the latter, still asking for Aaron O. as our server. The concert ended just after 6PM. Feeling foolish, I called, HOPING to move the time up. Bridget came to the rescue! Not only did she have a table for 2 that just opened up, and would save it for us (we're 5-10 min. away), it was in Aaron's section!! SERVICE is what they do SO very well - - in addition to just huge variety and flavorful dishes. The place was hopping, packed with big groups celebrating moms, but no one seemed hurried, it wasn't loud, and we didn't wait long for anything! (But that's Aaron, too!)"

  • "We celebrated Mother's Day with my wife and her mom, along with our son and her girlfriend. We usually have dinner here but found out they have special brunch menu for special days like Mother's Day. We were seated at a table by the window with a view to the Fisherman's Wharf, and close to the entrance as a convenience to my 93-year old mother-in-law. They brought us complimentary fresh corn muffins, and we ordered the Oven Roasted Crab and Artichoke dip as starter. The ladies had the Seafood Scramble with crab, shrimp, and Yukon Potatoes, while the guys ordered their "loco moco". Instead of the normal hamburger everyone else uses, they served it with premium short ribs. It was delicious. 5 stars as usual!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Friendly, albeit a bit slow service. We were there mid-afternoon on Mother's Day. We love the view and ambiance, and the staff are helpful. The food is variable, depending who's working that day. The normally wonderful crab and artichoke dip was definitely below their par, with scant crab in it. The veggies were minimal and not well-prepared, other than fantastic mashed potatoes. Stick to dinner time. "

He was very smarmy and not polite. Then after the entres had been served we waited THIRTY MINUTES wanting to order more drinks."

It was the perfect choice to take our out-of-town visitor for conversation, food, and convenience. The server surprised me with a complimentary birthday brulee when she overheard me say to the others that is was my birthday...how professional and kind!"

  • "Come lunch time or early evening a good dining spot for the towns power elite. The atmosphere would be called refined local. The food is above average and the location is central to downtown and waikiki. Give Kincaid's a try, you could be dining with the governor, a senator, or a local tv talent"
