We stayed at the JW Marriott
We stayed at the JW Marriott and wanted to eat on-site. The Naupaka Terrace was perfect! The outdoor dining was absolutely beautiful and the food was excellent!

One aspect that i love about
One aspect that i love about Naupaka Terrace and the main reason why i highly recommend it to my guests is the open air feeling. The large size restaurant allows you to feel relaxed and you are able to enjoy a morning coffee without the feeling that you are rushed to leave. The staff are always friendly and it makes the experience so great! Keep up the good work!

This was our first time here and it was good and different. We have never had food like this so it was fun to tey something new. The staff is extremely friendly and provide excellent service.

Grace was very pleasant and answering our questions on the food.

We love the Naupaka Terrace for "girls' day out", family brunch, and entertaining out-of-town guests. It is always so pleasant and the scenery is beautiful! We get to take our time and "play tourist" and there is no traffic hustle and bustle like Waikiki. The staff is always friendly, so attentive and always smiling. You don't need to "twist any arms" of friends from town to drive all the way out to the Ihilani for a perfectly lovely brunch!

We ate here while staying at the JW Marriott. The service and food were great! We had an excellent ahi tuna appetizer and the fish of the day. The fresh made tomato basil salad dressing was amazing. Everything we ordered was very fresh and tasty. They also helped us work through some food allergies, making sure to ask the Chef questions about the menu. I wish we would have eaten here more instead of trying Azul.

Ate too much!
We went for the Sunday Champagne Brunch. The food was wonderful! The carved beef was so tender and the smoked pork was absolutely delicious! I was happy to see smoked salmon and oysters on the half shell. The bread pudding was to die for! Everything was excellent and of high quality. Our waitress was super friendly and served us very well. We will definitely go back there again!

Our waitress was overwhelmed
Our waitress was overwhelmed with multiple tables and we waited quite a while for our dishes, and she did forget 2/3 of my order BUT she caught the mistake herself, was very gracious about it, fixed the problem promptly and comp'ed our drinks, so, no hard feelings. The food was yummy and the ambience fantastic. Even our 3 year old didn't complain about how long we were there!!!

Fathers Day Buffet
Our dinner was wonderful. At first we didnt like the table we were shown to. But the hostess was kind enough to accomodate us. Everything was nice. Just needed Kamaaiana rates for local people. We will for sure go there for the buffet breakfast which we usually go to or some other buffet you have for local people. Just do the Kamaaiana rates :) Thank you!!!

Disaapointed but not for long!
Sad to learn they no longer have the Taste of Koolina buffet on Tuesday nights, but their all you can eat soup & salad bar that comes with every entrée is great!!! We were also lucky to come during their sunset special & got the Hukilau Pasta for $21. My mom loved it! Of course service at Naupaka Terrace is always wonderful. We were lucky to have Scott as our server. He's the BEST!! We'll be back again & again!

Scott provided Excellent service and the property was beautiful. Everyone was very attentive. The manager, jana, even came by our table to check on us.

Combines food & view like no other
We ate here three years ago while on vacation and returned with family members. The breakfast buffet was very good, although the scrambled eggs were a bit cold. Everything else was very good.....and would recommend again next time we are on Oahu. Excellent service....
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friends and I love to come here any chance we get! My family also loves the brunch!

Love Naupaka Terrace
The Naupaka Terrace is a special restaurant at a special place on Oahu. The food, service, and ambience are excellent. My wife and I live in Waikiki, but it's worth the drive to the beautiful Ihilani Resort at Koolina to relax and dine with family and friends, especially those from the mainland US or other countries. Everyone loves it and wants to return; and they do return.

I think this could be an excellent
I think this could be an excellent place, and may be on another evening. The food was excellent except for the seafood; it was over cooked. This being a special seafood buffet made it rather disappointing. At $54 per person, I expected more. Over the years we have been to this restaurant many times and have always enjoyed it.

The food was very good, lots
The food was very good, lots of selections. Everything was so tasty. We will go back with our children next time!

Enjoyed Sunday brunch here with my wife. Great selection of breakfast items, seafood and carved meat stations. The price is $45. If you eat enough shrimp, oysters and prime rib, you get your money's worth.

We had an awesome breakfast experience with friends. Besides the menu choices there are three buffet breakfast levels on Sundays: $17 for the Continental Breakfast which included lots of fresh fruit (strawberries and blueberries anyone?), breads and cold cuts- even lox. The full breakfast with omelets, waffles and other hot items is $25, and the full brunch with the seafood table is $45. We had more than enough delicious choices with the Continental Breakfast. We asked for an outside table and were seated under an umbrella right by the shark tank. Beautiful views of the ocean, too. Our server was extremely friendly and personable.. This is a popular restaurant, so reservations are definitely recommended

The girls get together
My coworkers and I love coming to Naupaka Terrace buffet breakfast for our monthly get togethers!! It's such a peaceful atmosphere. You can take your time, talk story and relax.. We spent a total of 3 hrs there and ate to our hearts desire. I recommend this breakfast to every single guest that checks in out our hotel.

I love the relaxed feeling of this place. Six of us enjoyed the Seafood Buffet on Saturday evening. Buffett didn't offer everything described in the advertisement which was a little disappointing but the items that were available were very good.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love having the breakfast buffet at Naupaka. The buffet opens from 6:30am - 8:30am. From 8:30am the Brunch buffet starts which includes more food, craving station and champagne. We like the breakfast since there is already a lot to eat. I especially like the omelet station and little Belgian waffles.

Having my parents' 50th anniversary celebration at naupaka terrace was a real plus. My mom was impressed with the restaurant overall.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service towards my kids was excellent
My daughter is 9 doesn't eat much should be free for buffet
But instead had to order from kids menu
26 vs 8 dollars
So that should be a bit different
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to Naupaka for brunch since we didn't have our 8-year old and thought it would be a nice date for just the two of us. My wife and I both liked the food. This was my first time here, so I didn't really know what to expect. To my surprise, I didn't mind the atmosphere because I was more taken away by the view and the fact that we don't really get to dine out much at a resort, so this experience was a treat...especially for me! Would I go back again? Definitely!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The selection of local & European dishes was extensive. I tried but couldn't sample everything...not even close! My wife enjoys our meals there and we enjoyed group parties there too! The staff are resort & fine dining friendly. You'll enjoy yourselves!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great dinner with friends at Naupaka. I love the soup & salad bar. My mom really loved her seafood pasta. It was nice & relaxed so we chatted for a while & had a great time.

Naupaka Terrace Saturday buffet
My husband absolutely loves this restaurant because of it's all you can eat king/snow crab legs. We have eaten here many times. This time was particularly good especially the prime rib. The food options are really good; the salads are great, the clam chowder is good, the steamers are really good and I loved the pasta. The only thing I think could be better are the deserts. The flan is very heavy and the chocolate fountain continually runs out of dipping items and some of the dipping items are stale from the salt air. I think it's time for a revamp of the deserts. Maybe something local like coconut flan or a nice macadamia nut tart.

We ate here two out of three
We ate here two out of three nights. The sunset dinner is priced great with an all you can eat soup and salad bar. The fish is fresh everyday and it's the choice of the chef so don't expect to know before 4 p.m. But definitely worth the wait. Our waiter Scot was a gem, perfect in every respect. This is part of the JWMarriott and has beautiful views of the ocean and large fish tank with sharks and other fish swimming around. Can't wait to return again

Brought my friend from CA
Brought my friend from CA here as she was staying at the Villas. We didn't do buffett as it's too much food. Just ordered some waffle and pancakes. She seemed impressed with food - lots of it. Little pricey tho. Overall, a nice time.
