  • "Took a friend out to dinner to celebrate her 40 years in the hospitality industry and the Ocean House provided all of us with a memoralable evening. The table and view were excellent. The service first class and the food, fresh, tasty and perfectly prepared. The waiter even took a picture to capture the moment. If it gets any better than this I must have died and gone to heaven............. Thank you"

  • "We celebrated our 40th anniversary here. Made reservations at 5:30 and got the early special prime rib (smaller portion but plenty). Waiter was Jessie and he and his manager there provided some of the best service ever."

  • "I booked reservation for my wife and I. We were on our honey moon. She is pregnant and the only thing she could have on the menu was prime rib. She ordered it well done. Drs orders. Our food came out and her steak was med rare. Okay no bight. I figured it wouldn't take longer than 10 min. Steak come out after 15 min, same cut by the way, and nothing ha been done to it. I'm guessing they left it under the heat lamp or something. They order her a new cut and 45 min later after my food got ice cold they brought out a med well steak. How hard is it to cook a prime rib well done? The manager comped her steak an left me hanging high and dry with a 80$ tab."

  • "We celebrated our 49th Wedding Anniversary at the Ocean House Restaurant and absolutely loved it! The sky gave us a gorgeous show of changing colors as the sun started its descent. The service was extraordinary! We enjoyed our dinner menu selections and we were treated to a surprise tasty dessert for two. A photo of the two of us was taken by our waiter, framed and presented as a souvenir gift which we will treasure. There were three wedding parties going on around us which added to the festive atmosphere. For us, it was a totally relaxing and wonderful dining experience. Thank you to the Ocean House staff!"

  • "After choosing a restaurant that unbeknownst to us had a dress code we had to quickly find a suitable restaurant within walking distance. We were so glad that we came across this on our OpenTable app. The prime rib was wonderful as well as the Opah. It wasn't advertised as being sustainable, however it was based on the comments from our waitress of how it was caught."

  • "I've eaten here on several occasions with great experiences. Unfortunately, this latest one was a bit sub-par. We had to wait almost an hour for our entree as our waiter either delayed (or forgot) to submit our order which was then place behind two large parties and their orders. He was quite apologetic about the error and thanked us for our patience. From my observations, he appeared to be new, so it was easier to extend him grace as we've all been new to a job at some point. I will absolutely return to Ocean House for another meal. The food is fabulous, and the view is unbeatable. I would recommend installing some ceiling fans to cool the room."

  • "My wife (a diagnosed Coeliac) and I went to Ocean House on the recommendation that it offered a wide range of Gluten Free options. The Appertiser and Entree Menus offered superb Gluten Free choices (a big thank you) but we were dissappinted(and did not order) by the limited and unimaginative GF dessert choices. Our choice of Appertiser was Peppered Scallops (excellent) and we both had Steak dishes for Entree. Both Entees were perfectly cooked but Staff need to be more descriptive in portion sizes as one of our dishes was the Lite Cut (smaller serve) but ended up filling more than half the plate !!! The Lack of any conditioning/fans (in the absence of any sea breeze) made the conditions quite uncomfortable to sit and enjoy our experience."

  • "We make it a point to always eat here when we are in Waikiki. The food is amazing and the service is always the best, great nightly specials. Amazing Sunset views make your dinner even that much better. Make a reservation, they are always busy . If not, it is well worth the wait..just have a drink at the Shorebird while you wait."

  • "We visited your restaurant on our first visit to Waikiki last year and had to come back for more this year. For a wonderful meal and ambience and what we consider the best view of Waikiki beach you cannot go past the Ocean House restaurant. The staff were knowledgeable, courteous and friendly and the food outstanding. The complimentary freshly baked bread served with butter and Hawaiian sea salt was a wonderful start to an unforgettable meal. We arrived at 6 and had a table overlooking the beach. We initially thought the fine mesh blinds in front of the tables slightly obstructed the view but then right on cue and with a touch of theatre they were automatically raised in time to witness the Waikiki sunset. This is a must do we will be back!"

  • "A most memorable experience, not only for our Vancouver guests, but for us locals as well. Ocean House exudes the perfect ambience to host visitors from out of town. Manager George and staff were most accommodating always with smiles on their faces. I may consider the Hokkaido scallop appetizers in the wonderful sauce as an entree the next time with some ciabatta. The juicy signature prime rib, grilled, was a bit hit! After drinks, appetizers and entrees, we still enjoyed the molten lava cake ala mode and strawberry panna cotta. Thank you!!!"

  • "We scheduled our reservation for the 13th of June, because that was our anniversary. But then we found out I had to work all day that day, my husband called and you guys gladly changed it for the next evening. We were put in the corner away from everyone, but still had a beautiful view of the beach. The staff was great, the food was even better. We even were given a cute card with our picture that the waitress took. That meant so much to us, we will definitely be coming back, and recommending this place to everyone! Only negative comment is the directions. Maybe on the website there could be better directions. We had a hard time finding the place. But I am sure glad we did! Thanks for the wonderful staff and hospitality!"

  • "The food was very good, from the salad through dessert. The atmosphere is fantastic as you can sit covered outdoors right against the beach with a beautiful view. The service was the best. Our waiter, Jason, using their own camera took the best picture ever of us for our anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there."

  • "We were so disappointed, our food took almost an hour to arrive, my fish was dry and not edible, my husbands meal was good and it was his Birthday so I didn't want to make a bigger fuss - I listed on reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, but waiter never acknowledged. For the price, you expect much better service and food."

  • "our dinner reservations @ 7:15pm was perfect to get a bit of sunset. I ordered the shrimp scampi disappointed it was a little soupy not as creamy as expected. My husband order the vegetables and Quiona too lemon tasting he did not finish it. Wine list was good. Our waiter George great local personna.. Park at hotel (valet parking) although restaurant validated 1st hour free we had to pay $ 6.00 not bad still wish it was free.....after spending $$$$$ for dinner......overall a pretty good experience....would return to try a new dish maybe the fresh fish....."

  • "I found Ocean House recommended over many of the other popular restaurants in Honolulu. We arrived a little early of our reservation but got seated without delay. Our waiter came around promptly with menus, introduced himself, informed us of the catch of the day and how it was best prepared. Service was fantastic throughout the night, between the young men frequently bringing water around, and our waiter checking with us to see that things were to our liking. The food was delicious, and with a beautiful view of the ocean and the sunset, not a meal to rush. If you are in the area and desire some of the finer things in life, look no further. "

  • "Beautiful views of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach. I adored the ambiance of the restaurant. Service was exceptional - everyone was so friendly! The food was very good. Scallops appetizer was my fave. The chowder is delicious. Seafood laulau unique and tasty. Seafood pasta was generous and very good. Dessert was okay - lava cake overcooked. Nonetheless still a great restaurant and highly recommended!"

The fireworks on a Friday from the Hilton Hawaiian also made for an awesome night. The table service was second to none. The food was also great. I celebrated my 40th birthday here and they were very accommodating and knew how to make my night special."

  • "My girlfriend and I came here while on vacation for our two year anniversary and ordered the Parmesan crusted opah and blue crab stuffed mahi mahi and both were AMAZING! The flavors of both entrees were savory enough but didn't overpower the dish. Additionally they gave us dessert for our anniversary, a raspberry sorbet, which was really cool. It wasn't anything special but a nice gesture. They also gave us a free lava cake dessert because it was their 10 year anniversary and that was fantastic. Best lava cake I have ever eaten. "

We went early (6) and one note is that it was warm with no A/C in the outdoor seating, but an hour later the breezes cooled things down nicely."

  • "4 of us went for a Mothers Only Brunch, skipping the crowds on the actual lMothers' Day. Brealfast/brunch on a Sunday ends at 11:00 and we were able to get a reservation for 10:30. Waiter was very nice but it took a long while for our food to come out although there were only 3-4 tables of customers. Also, I brought in a coupon from the Ocean House website for free glasses of fresh squeezed orange juice. It was a nice tall glass but it was not fresh squeezed. Food was very good. "

  • "My husband and I had dinner at the Ocean House for date night. We were seated pretty quickly, however, once we were seated it was about 15 minutes before we received the menu and another 15 minutes before we received our drinks and some bread to munch on before our appetizer arrived. The restaurant was very busy and it seemed like the server was overwhelmed. The food finally came out after we were there for an hour. It was okay, but definitely not what we had expected. We have had much better else where. I had the filet mignon and my husband had the prime rib. The were both cooked fine, nothing spectacular. The dessert was horrible, dry and flavorless. We will likely not go back."
