The menu is extensive; dishes are well-prepared.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Restaurant in Honolulu!Although they are know for their prime rib, my husband & I each had fish dishes and they were fabulous! You can't beat the view of Waikiki Beach as you are right on the beach in this restaurant. Service was outstanding as well. Yes, it's pricey, but if you are a foodie, this is the place for you.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial nightGotta say I was thoroughly please by the service we received.

Food came fast and coffee was hot! Quick service and took us on time for our reservations. Perfect morning, couldn't ask for a better experience!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden Gem!This restaurant has it all, great ocean view, exceptional service and wonderful food. Locals and tourists should dine here!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ViewLocated on Waikiki Beach, this restaurant profoundly capitalizes on one of the most beautiful views in the world! You just can't beat being in Hawaii and having breakfeast on Waikiki Beach. It's a dream come true for so many visitors from around the world! However, I'm a local and I didn't have to travel thousands of miles to enjoy this gem.
Service was on par with many fine dining places, food was expertly prepared and price point was really affordable for such a great location with the perfect atmosphere.
I'd recommend this place to anyone. I just hope it doesn't get to crowded for me to get a reservation.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPride of WaikikiWe have been to this restaurant numerous times and its been very consistant about serving perfectly cooked food and great service. The view is to die for especially if you get the window table during the sunset. Prices are better if you can get there before 6pm when they have the early bird special menu. But for a nice restaurant in Honolulu, its not outrageously expensive.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingthis was our second dining experience at Ocean House and again it was outstanding! We brought friends of ours that are new to the island and this is now going to be a favorite "romance night out" for this couple. Every time we return to the islands we plan to return to OHR5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Perfect ChoiceWonderful dining experience all around! Couldn't ask for a better view of Diamond Head and Waikiki beach at sunset. A wide menu assortment to choose from, beautiful presentation, and superb attentive service from all staff members. Great romantic setting for any special or memorable event.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Ahi Steak!The Ahi steak I had at this place was the best I've ever had!!!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!This place is phenomenal!

We celebrated our one year anniversary here and hope to be back every year :)5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMon the beach in HawaiiFood was exceptional and the service was on top. It pays to make reservations because you almost always get the best table locations..this night was no exception.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMfood is good but The correspondencefood is good but The correspondence to Japanese people is severe. It showed around not in the reserved seat but in a bad seat in the wall case. There is no meaning which made reservation.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a fantastic place! RightWhat a fantastic place! Right on the water with delicious fish and great service. I would recommend this for anyone. We were celebrating our 36th Anniversary and had my sister along with us. We had made a reservation and asked for a table by the water. We got to the restaurant 15 minutes late because we went to the wrong hotel....we called and they reassured us that we still had the reservation. It was a great experience.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect ExperienceOcean House is the absolute best! My husband and I always have a fantastic time there. We are local and continue to come back to OH because everything is always perfect. The seared peppered scallops were just as delicious as the first time we got them...our favorite appetizer! My husband ordered the same as usual; the macadamia nut crusted mahi maui...he loved it. I ordered the special which at the time was Opakapaka with a shiitake mushroom cream sauce....absolutely amazing! Our server's name was Rosario. She made this experience truly relaxing. She knew the menu very well, was very friendly, open with new suggestions and even took the time to take our photo since it was my husband's birthday. Overall, another great time at the Ocean House4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience. ExcellentGreat experience. Excellent fresh fish meal with fabulous view of the Pacific and Waikiki. Superb, personable waitress.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI ordered the pelehu prime,I ordered the pelehu prime, it was about 30% to 40% fat and covered with some spice concoction that spoiled the flavor.
I've eaten the pelehu before and really enjoyed it but this time it was terrible.
My wife enjoyed the seafood curry.
The waiter and other staff members were very good.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA memorable mealA wonderful choice. A great find.

Two fairly large groups cost you a star or two this time but, overall, it was still the way we remembered it.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem by the sea!We thoroughly enjoyed a delicious breakfast by the sea on Easter Sunday ... we partook of two of the specials; my wife had the mahi mahi with eggs and I had the lobster / shrimp / scallop fried rice with eggs. Both were superb and the views just added to our enjoyment of this gem of a restaurant. The wait staff was attentive but not obtrusive and the atmosphere was unbeatable. Very highly recommended!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOcean House -- as good as ever!Waterfront fine dining on Waikiki! There sunset prime rib special is well worth the price. Great service. A nice place to take the family (older kids) or that someone special for a nice dinner out.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOur go-to place in WaikikiOur party of four had the most enjoyable evening at Ocean House. We were seated at a perfect table to enjoy the fabulous view of the ocean and beautiful sunset. We began with appetizers of Asian-style Ribs over grilled pineapple and Ahi Carpaccio suggested by our waiter. Nice presentation and so Ono! All entrees ordered were absolutely delicious and cooked exactly to order. The service is tops! Management and servers were very attentive. Only thing I was disappointed in was that bus staff were too rushed and repeatedly tried to remove plates off the table even when food was still on app and salad pates. Being Kamaaina (locals), the Ocean House will definitely be our go-to place from now on for a night out or special occasion.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food but a little pricey.Good food but a little pricey. We ordered the seafood lau lau and crusted macadamia nut mahi mahi. The appetizer was excellent. We had the seafood dynamite and just the right amount of spices. Very tasty but the amount was a little skimpy for the price.
Negative was that none of the entrees come with any side veggies, not even a little salad.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOcean House is a wonderfulOcean House is a wonderful restaurant with beautiful views, delicious food and outstanding service. We have dined there many times and have never been disappointed.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, location, andGreat food, location, and sunset. The service was also great (3/20/13) and timely. We really enjoyed our dinner. It is pricy, like everything on Waikiki but at least the food was outstanding. Wine list could be a little bit larger (selection-wise) but we did find a bottle that we enjoyed.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Dining ExperienceWe were overwhelmed by the superb dining experience we recently had at Ocean House Restaurant. Jenine Goto took care of us with so much class and unobtrusive attention to detail. We were warmly greeted at the door and immediately seated at a perfect table overlooking the ocean. Our Dynamite appetizer was delicious and our prime rib dinners, perhaps the best tasting we have ever had, were perfectly sized and cooked, My husband, who is rather picky these days, savored every bite, including his glass of pinot noir. Because we were celebrating my husband's birthday, he was treated to a special raspberry sorbet dessert with a candle on it and given a remembrance photo of our dinner. We will bring the whole family next time.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location - ocean views!We had out of town guests and decided to eat in Waikiki since they were staying there. We chose the Ocean House Restaurant because it is right on the water. The restaurant opens directly onto the beach. The views of the ocean are unobstructed as was the view of the sunset. We were surprised at how delicious the food was. Our appetizers were especially outstanding. We had the scallops and spicy ahi roll. Both were as good as we've tasted elsewhere. Our party of 4 all had fish. The opah was especially tasty and the wives also enjoyed their stuffed mahi. Look out for coupon books at the front desk where you can find a coupon for free "lava cake" dessert with every 2 entrees purchased. It was delicious!!!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDined to celebrate a birthdayDined to celebrate a birthday and received outstanding service. The picture taken by Kevin was special.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOcean house provides excellentOcean house provides excellent view towards the pacific ocean and Waikki beach. We've enjoyed a great sun set, and more for the special prime ribs. It's one of the best prime ribs I've ever tasted. Will definitely visit again next time to Hawaii.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA prefect restaurant by the seaIt may be hard to review a restaurant where everything met our expectation. Seafood was great, and the dessert as well. The white wine we chose (from Spain if my memory is correct) brightened our meal a lot. We went there for dinner and our table was just by the window, so we saw the amazing sunset. Definitely will recommend to our friends.12/19/2012 12:00:00 AMWe had dined at Ocean HouseWe had dined at Ocean House on previous trips to Honolulu. This reservation was for a special occasion and exceeded all expectations. Sunset was beautiful with an unofficial race of sail boats. The dinner was superb and we highly recommend the Ruby Snapper! Great pinot noirs are available to enhance the meal. Desserts were delicious. Outstanding service and the setting made this a truly unforgettable meal and occasion.10/19/2012 12:00:00 AM
