  • restaurant week lunch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 11/22/2014
    I had gone for restaurant week. For $33, you get an salad, entree, and dessert. The salad was nice and fresh and not too heavy on the dressing so it was a good start to the meal. For the entree, I chose the shrimp risotto which was good but tasted too much like fresh tomatoes for my taste. I chose the chocolate gelato for dessert which I liked but it was a little more melted than I had wanted. Overall it was a good, complete lunch for the price. The waitress, I forget her name, was very good at coming around and asking how things were going often and they refilled our water before it was gone every time. So service was great. I had forgotten that it was an open air space so it was a bit hot with the sun shining in on us but the view of Ala Moana beach park was nice minus the construction. I would definitely go again, maybe not for lunch but for dinner next time.

  • Stuck in the corner
    NavywifeVIP
    Dined on 11/18/2014
    Had a reservation so was surprised to be stuck at the worst table in a corner by the noisy bar. It was a special evening before sending our son off to his next duty station with the Navy. Assuming because it was Restaurant Week it took 30 minutes to be served our 1st course. The table next to us had obviously waited a long time as well because they kept getting "service" which we soon realized meant their appetizer and drinks were comped by Longhi's. No such deal for the white Americans. It was quite unreal to be sitting right next to them and watch their server and the female manager fall all over them while ignoring us. Longhi's has been a favorite of ours for quite some time and given all the locations we could have chosen for Restaurant Week, we picked Longhi's. If we had to do it again, would definitely have picked a different location. Sad to say not sure if we will be returning anytime soon. Left a bad taste in our mouth even though the food was delicious. Expected more from one of our favorite restaurants. :(

    Wanted a quick bite to eat before my 2pm appointment. I had lunch by myself and enjoyed it tremendously. I ordered a 1/2rder of asparagus and their Pastrami Sandwich on Marble Rye with fries. This was the 1st time ordering this meal. Oh so DELICIOUS! If you want to try out their desserts, don't order a big meal. A large tray of different sweets were brought over to my table. I will remember my advice on my next visit. I really enjoy coming here, the people are nice and the food is always GREAT!

    It took ONE HOUR for our food to come out! We saw the waiter when he took our order then he disappeared for an hour. It was my birthday and I was soooo embarrassed that my guests had to sweat for ONE hour [I checked my time and it WAS at LEAST and hour] before our food came; for 7 people. I choose to go to another restaurant for another gathering this week. DON'T waste your time at Longhi's Ala Moana. If anyone decides to go to Longhi's consider their name: "LONG" time to wait for service. I can't believe they got voted the Best of Honolulu Award; to me it's the worst! Those Awards don't mean ANYTHING to me; Zippy's has better service.

    1 Star only. Food good. Service was another story. Our waiter was probably not having a good day. Never smiled never tried to converse to see why we were dining there. We were celebrating our anniversary. He came to take our order and it caught me by surprise as I we weren't given the catch of the day yet. Had to ask for it. Waters weren't refilled unless ask to. Canceled my souffle. Overall. Will never come back and will never refer this restaurant ever again as I had before. I Bartend in a Waikiki hotel and do a lot of restaurant referring to my valued guests. I would be embarrassed for this type of service be given to my dining referrals. Ended up at Mortons for dessert

    I took my family here for a celebration breakfast. The wait staff was attentive although I believe a bit short handed. The food selection is inventive and well executed. The frittata was particularly notable. We did start to notice we had been waiting longer than usual for our dishes. All in all, a very enjoyable experience to be repeated.

    Maine Lobster Eggs Benet was great and service was nice. However...unfortunately, the table where we usually enjoy the view offered the continuous noise by the constructon at parking lot of AMC. Service was great. however, somhow disappointed in the end. They wrote the amount of the tip(18%) on the bill without having/asking me write. I was thinking to pay 18% tip(or more), however, I don't understand restaurant decided the tip though I look like Japanese who doesn't know the tip system and restaurant is "kind" service. With this, my evaluation is not 18% more, but less than 15%.

    Each year, we celebrate our wedding anniversary at Longhi's. We always order the same thing. I get the TO DIE FOR Lobster Benedict. The abundant portion may be shared on occasions when other dishes are ordered. My husband is very particular about his steak and eggs, but he is never disappointed with the preparation at Longhi's. When we bring our son, he gets the more-than-generous fresh baked cinnamon roll. The coffee at Longhi's is heavenly. I'm usually a cream and sugar girl, but can usually drink the coffee there black because it is so rich and tasty. The service is always extraordinary, and the views from any table in the restaurant are spectacular.

    Love the feeling of this place, especially at sunset. Doesn't feel like you're in a huge shopping center. Entrees are a lot more expensive than the last time we came, but we had calamari appetizer, shared the Longhi salad, and had two shellfish pasta dishes that were great. Only slight negative was the loud bar music that lasted well into our dinner (reservation was for 7:00).

    This is a great place to take visiting Family and Friends. I have been to this location for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Happy Hour. We always have a great time. The Staff are always friendly and attentive. My sisters from Maui came in for the day. There are two locations on Maui. They wanted to try out this location. Thank goodness Longhi's is open for breakfast. And located in the Ala Moana Shopping Center. We had a great time. We ordered the Guava Mimosa with our Omelet, Eggs Benedict and Lox and Bagel for breakfast. Delicious! We will always come back for a great meal and incredible view of Ala Moana Park!

    The wine selection is great and the food was prepared well. The location is warm and they need to bump up the A/C. It is open air and gets direct sun in the PM. It was so warm that our pinot needed to be dunked in ice for a bit because it got too warm to drink... it started to change too fast. The ice helped stabilize it and we could slow down our soppings.

    I have been here several times for breakfast and it is usually quite nice. We had 10 AM reservations and came on time. Maybe he got called in last minute or there something else going on but it's been a long time since I've had such a rude waiter. He never made eye contact, he looked elsewhere when talking and spoke a voice so soft he could barely be heard over all the background noise. When I asked him to repeat things he sounded annoyed and never smiled or asked once how our food was. Plus unfortunately this trip the food is only so-so. Nothing was seasoned and things were not that warm. I think they have changed the bread they use in the Benedicts for the worse. Also smallest Bloody Mary ever.

    The endive salad we had was one of the best we ever had, penne arrabiata was as good as we ever had in Rome's Nino, however, linguine clam (my favorite pasta, the barometer of how good and bad of any Italian eatery can be judged) was just OK, lacking in something I cannot pin point. Over all, we a great lunch any in a most beautiful setting.

    The food was very good, however, the service was very poor. Our server was not attentive and seemed to forget that we were there. I asked him to take a picture of us and he seemed a little displeased and was definitely very impatient as he did not take the time to even focus on us. In addition, in making the reservations, I noted that we were celebrating both our birthdays. NOTHING was said or done. I realize th at we had breakfast, but, how about offering us a complimentary specialty coffee or a breakfast side. I ordered the Maine lobster benedict with a side of potatoes. My friend ordered a frittata with waffles on the side. I think that our order deserved some attention.

    I have dined at Longhi's for over 20 years, first discovering them in Lahaina, Maui. They have always been outstanding for food, service and ambiance. This time, we had a terrible experience at Ala Moana location. We were seated closer to the bar and it was LOUD! We could not hear ourselves talk to each other. The servers seemed like they all came from McDonalds or worse. For this calibre restaurant and the prices they charge, service MUST be much better and the staff need to be trained. My guess was the manager was not present that night and the staff were having a free day and being their true self! Unfortunately, we will not be dining at Longh's again.
