Diner Reviews
  • "Ocean House has a great atmosphere. Wonderful views from the outside table. Scallop appetizer was amazing. Out of 4 main meals only one was good. The other three had very unusual tastes. My daughter had a steak which was very chewy. Inedible. Overall very disappointing. High prices for strange food. Many more options to choose from."

  • "It was for our anniversary and we requested a table that we could see the ocean when we made the reservation. When we arrived there, they welcomed us by saying "Happy Anniversary!", which was a very nice start. And our table was facing the beautiful ocean, they served a complimentary dessert, and they gave us a special occasion card with our picture they just took. Overall, it was a great service and they made our special day even more special! The presentation of their food was not that special but the meat and fish quality was good. I'd like to try other menus also next time."

  • "Excellent location right on the beach with sunset views every night and fireworks on Friday nights. Good seafood selection with generous portions and overall good value."

  • "We had a table on the edge of Waikiki beach, so a great view of the ocean and of Diamond Head. Everything we had was great - predinner drinks, appetizer, wine, entrees & dessert. My husband had the catch of the day and found it outstanding; my prime rib was also excellent. If you like bread pudding, my husband said it was the best he's ever had. Lovely experience."

  • "Food was good, service excellent. Prices were high, but that is to be expected in Waikiki. They make a big deal about putting the charge on our room, which was weird.."

  • "We loved this restaurant so much we came back twice during our week's stay. The reservation system is easy, the food is delicious, the maitai's great and the sunset view and ambiance spectacular. Service is immaculate and the sunset specials are a real value. We had the prime rib special and it was delicious. The salads are fresh and the chocolate dessert decadent. We definitely give this restaurant a two-thumbs up."

  • "We spent 5 days in Waikiki in late March and went to Ocean House on our first night in town. The food and experience was soooo good that we decided to go back, and spent our last dinner at Ocean House as well. Both times, the food was outstanding, the service lovely and the setting just beautiful. I can only highly recommend!"

  • "We had made reservations months ahead of time hoping to get a table outside, which we did not. There was no point in making a reservation before hand we had probably one of the worse tables in the establishment. Four of us ordered the Mahi Mahi and it came burnt. It is very pricey restaurant to be served burnt food. The restaurant did try to make things better by offering to make us something else, two chose to eat the burnt fish, two chose to wait a half hour for something else. All of the other food was fine. We were just surprised that we would be served burnt food, one piece of fish was so charred at the corner it could not be eaten."

  • "Went to Ocean House to celebrate my Birthday....there are so many places to choose in Waikiki, so having been to Ocean House in the past I wanted to experience it again. I made reservations a few weeks before my birthday, and requested a beach side table due to the special occasion- When we arrived we had to wait about 15 minutes and did not receive the beach side table...I was disappointed as we were seated in a table closer to the door- our waiter was young and service was not as good as we remembered, but he was a good waiter..the food was not as good as we remembered, but was still good- bread was amazing as was my drink- we had a free coupon for dessert that we used- the dessert was very good. Maybe beachside would have helped."

  • "We were so pleased to find this place on the internet. I put in "ocean restaurant in Waikiki" and your restaurant came up. We are local folks and are tired of the same old, same old out here in Ewa and Kapolei and Ko'olina.....wanted something new and refreshing and we got it at Ocean House. We dined Friday night, 3/14/14."

  • "My husband and I recently dined at the Ocean House while on vacation in Honolulu. We enjoyed the atmosphere and our waiter was very attentive and did a good job. The food was fine, nothing overly exciting. We would probably go back for drinks and to watch the sunset."

  • "Have not visited Ocean House for over 2 years and was pleased that the service and the food still remained outstanding. We had 5:00 pm reservations and enjoyed a beautiful sunset while we enjoyed dinner. Service was quick - we never felt "rushed" by any of the staff and stayed till about 7:30 pm savoring dessert and the view of the beach and moonlit sky."

  • "We chose the Ocean House Restaurant for dinner because the restaurant have many gluten free selections including appetizers and dessert. The gluten free items are clearly marked on the menu. We were very impressed with our all our food selections. The service was excellent. It would be a good choice for a romantic meal, to celebrate a special occasion or just a weeknight meal. A great location to view the Waikiki sunset. A good value and even though the majority of diners were adults there were a few children."

  • "My husband and I LOVE this restaurant! We have spent more nights here than you can imagine. We were here every night in November when we came for a week and here we are again for the next 2 weeks and we will spend a considerable amount of our time for supper there. From the moment you check in with the host/hostess til you walk out you are royalty. Colleen, one of the managers is phenomenal! Jason recognized us and was right there with a handshake and a hug! George who was manager on duty last night came over and same response. The food......the OPA is to die for, scallops and Mau onion mashed potatoes, the seafood chowder incredible and the ambiance is casually romantic or dressed up romantic to the staff here is AWESOME! Great job all!"

  • "I had been fondly remembering the ahi appetizer since my last visit and I ordered it again and it did not disappoint! I think their appetizers are unique and my favorite part of the meal there. Great location and view, wonderful service that was on point throughout the night. I love all the attention and table touches from the service assistant all the way to the manager. We enjoy this restaurant and recommend it to all our friends- local and visitors!"

  • "Everything was great except from our service by our waiter Kevin. He was more interested in serving tables with more people including one with a woman he was flirting with... Sigh... The service by the rest of te staff was exceptional and they noticed he was not doing what he should with us and apologized a number of times.. Someone else took our drink and appetizer order. He was not helpful withthe menu, we felt like we were bothering him Overall it was a good experience except for Kevin"

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary while watching the sunset over Waikiki beach from our table. The food was very good and the serving sizes just right, but what made the evening outstanding was the service we received from our server George. He is knowledgeable, attentive and has a lighthearted demeanor that makes him a pleasure to converse with."

  • "Food was good to so so. Had the prime rib. They do prepare them in different styles which i found appealing. Wife had the lamb chops, they were so so. Didn't know you could mess up chops but they found the way. Wait staff was pleasant but running all over the place did not seem organize especially when they forget my side of mushrooms and since server did not come by for at least 15 minutes to see how we liked our food, he did not realize. They came about 10 minutes after we finished out main course, at least they were tasty. Restaurant is on the beach with a great view, that is what we wanted. I would give them another shot if in town, though cautious and hopeful of a better experience."

  • "For a restaurant based in a hotel Ocean House provided a good standard of both food and service. It's main draw is the view of the setting sun over the Pacific Ocean, even though it was cloudy on the night we ate here it was lovely to see the sunset. That said it is just good amongst a number of excellent restaurants nearby."

  • "We had a 7pm dinner reservation, but we were still seated 10 minutes late. I made the reservation a couple of months ahead of Valentine's Day and asked for a table close to the beach, but no such luck. When we were seated there were at least 10 tables open and a couple of tables by the beach front. I guess it's only a request and we can't always get want we want. Other than that the food was very good and the service was fast."
