Subdued Elegance on Waikiki Beach
Dining in Waikiki can be a noisy and moderately satisfying experience, but Ocean House offers a more quiet and elegant (but not overdone) open-air setting looking directly onto the beach. The specialty is prime rib and they do it well. Even better, there is a sunset special from 5-6 p.m. with an 8 oz. cut with Maui onion mashed potatoes for $22. We shared a salad and side of curly kale -- best we have ever tasted. There was also an extensive seafood selection -- quite appropriate for Oahu -- but we went for the house specialty and were very happy we did. The service was attentive, but not intrusive. Highly recommended. The restaurant does not have a bar area, but there is one in the Shore Bird restaurant located just a few steps away.

2nd time, not as good as the first
Second time here. The first time the food was slightly better with a group of 6 both times. As always, you'll get amazing scenic views here.. Service started off slow as our waiter got slammed with 5 tables at the same time. He started off pretty grumpy (per my 13 year old) but he finally came around as things calmed down for him. Otherwise, a very good visit and we will be back when in the Waikiki area.

Amazing dining experience on all fronts! The food was exceptional and the ambiance very romantic. My husband and I are honeymooning in Waikiki for 2 weeks and dined at the Ocean House twice....it was that special. Both nights we were seated at an oceanfront table. The view couldn't be any more romantic. Service was top notch!! The Butterfish was exceptional as were the pork tenderloin and prime rib. I don't think you could order anything on the menu that wouldn't be pleasing. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Love, love, love
The food was amazing from the crab stuffed mahi mahi, filet mignon, and scallops. The service was the best I've had at a restaurant in a long time. I would recommend to anyone.

Really good food, fantastic service
We've eaten at Ocean House a couple of times and each time the service has been absolutely top notch. Couple this with really good food and you end up with as really wonderful dining experience. The Sunset Special (delicious prime rib for just $23 between 5 and 6) is a fantastic value and one of the best prime ribs we've ever had.

we had a wonderful time at the Ocean House-one of our favorite places to go. The bread was really tasty, as were the Caeser salads. The lamb chops weren't as tender as I have had elsewhere but still good. The mahimahi was excellent. For dessert we had the Lava Volcano- absolutely delicous.
We come here for dinner as in addition to good food we also love to people watch- people on the beach.

Very romantic restaurant for our 5 year anniversary, great ocean view and excellent service. The food was good, I wouldn't say great but overall a wonderful choice!

Excellent Ocean Front Dining
This reservation was for a special occasion, 50th wedding anniversary. The food was very good, but pricy. Service was excellent and the view was outstanding. Good for a special occasion.

Perfect last night in paradise
The view of the ocean was spectacular. The wait staff atttentive but not atrusive. Our waiter was funny and informative. Food was fabulous. Seafood cooked in different, flavorful ways. The four of s each ordered something different and all were pleased with there dish. The Mai-Tais were the best on Waikiki.

On The Beach Waikiki Dining
Hard to beat this reasonably priced restaurant for on the beach dining (casual attire, open toe shoes for men), breakfast, lunch or dinner (sunset the best time). Repeat visits feature free juice for breakfast with a previous receipt (but not really the reason for a revisit).

We had a lovely dinner for my husbands birthday. We scored a table right on the beach and it was magnificent. Food was simple yet oh so tasty. And the picture at the end was such a nice gift.

Great but really loud kids
The wee ones next to us should have been home in bed! The screaming ruined our dinner! What's wrong with these parents?

Order the seafood laulau and you won't be disappointed. I wish the sunset special of the Angus prime rib for $21.95 could have some sort of vegetable on the side. Nice sunset views, right on the beach and service was prompt and efficient. Nice scallops and sizzling ahi appetizer. The Australian lamb chops with the mint cherry sauce is another great option to order for dinner.

Spectacular view as soon as
Spectacular view as soon as you enter the restaurant. This place is RIGHT on the ocean and the view can't be beat. But... it's not only about the setting. The food was outstanding as well as the service. We dined here on our 8th and last night on Oahu and it was by far the best dining experience we had, and we had dined at comparably priced restaurants in the same area nearly every night we were there.

great location and wonderful staff
We arrived am hour early for our reservation and was still lseated immediately for breakfast. The view was stunning and staff extremely nice. Our waiter, Chad, wss attentive and gracious in not only demeanor but also took the time to answer our questions. The blue crab cake benedict w hollandaise wss fantastic but many husbands choice of seafood fried rice wss special. Next time I will etter surfers scramble as it sounded phenomenal. You must go for truly great good with incredible oceanfront view! Signage could be better to help find it. That and pricing is my only complaint.

Outstanding Waikiki spot
The ocean views were spectacular, the staff efficient and gracious, and the food was quite good. Overall, a five star experience for our anniversary dinner.

Would have liked a lower corkage fee than $25. Blaine was excellent.

Absolutely stunning beach side view and the food was the best on the islsnd. Well worth every cent!

Excellent Setting, Really Good Food
This is the more fine dining restaurant at the Outrigger reef on the Beach. Casual dining, with a touch of class. This is not a beach attire type restaurant, but is still casual. Very good service and menu. Food is good quality and frequent visits by staff and management make the experience really nice. Most seating comes with awesome views of the ocean. Price is reasonable for a tourist area.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was good, not great but the real reason to dine here was the view. We were seated front row nearest the beach and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. Of course we've all seen a sunset, but it never gets old and there is something about the sun setting down over the ocean as you dine with a loved one.

Top beach-side restaurant
We had a wonderful Anniversary dinner and returned two days later. Good value and great food. Right on the ocean at Waikiki. Charming Plantation style property.

Meals, staff support, timing of catering, location, so, all was great.

My husband and I went to ocean house because I wanted to dine somewhere with a view and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service. Our water glasses were always full, plates were cleared in a timely fashion and courses were properly spaced. Our server , George, made the evening fantastic. He was knowledgeable, attentive, and charismatic. The food was flavorful and perfectly cooked. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Ocean House - 18 Oct 13
All around excellent experience. Service and view are top-notch. If you can reserve a table nearest to the beach on a Friday evening, do so between 7-8 pm and enjoy the fire works while enjoying drinks and dinner.
All dishes were excellent and well worth the price, especially for special occasions, but this restaurant is on the expensive side.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love going to this restaurant for a special event. The food was really good. For appetizer, I really liked the coconut lobster skewers and the seared peppered scallops. For entrée, I couldn't decided what to order, everything looked really good. But I read that the seafood lau lau was the best, so I tried that. I COULDN'T GET ENOUGH OF IT! Even my boyfriend kept eating my food. But when it came to the desert, I didn't think that I could eat anymore. But our waiter gave us a complementary desert since we were celebrating our anniversary. As we were eating out meal, we had a great view of the sunset. The service, food, and ambience was excellent!

Best opah ever, beautiful,ocean front table, great service. Can't wait to return.

Great place for fish!
We went in search if fresh fish. This place did not disappoint! Both the sushi appetizers and grilled fish main courses were superb!

Great restaurant on the beach
Great restaurant on the beach with view, upscale, yet casual dining. Nice menu selections, food well prepared, tasty, nice portion sizes. Nice wine list to complement menu. Server very friendly and knew menu well, helpful with dinner selections. Definitely would eat here again next time in the area.

Every time we are here we are the single most important person in that restaurant! Service is impeccable and staff are attentive! We were there 4 times out of our 7 day stay and each time it was better and I can't explain it but it was! They are as loyal to us as we are to them! To find this in a restaurant is just wonderful! From Amanda the hostess to Georgio the server the manager came over to thank us for coming back time and time again! That's what should happen is the service from the moment u check in!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, my fish was perfectly cooked and my husband enjoyed his food. Great waiter! I would recommend this but please make reservation at least a few hrs in advance for guaranteed seating where you want.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
When ever I go to Hawaii the first thing I do is book a reservation at the Ocean House. Have been there Seven times since 1990 and recommend it to any one who goes to Waikiki.

I came here with my wife on our honeymoon for our one fancy dinner out, and we were both blown away. The light evening breeze coming off the ocean started things off on the right foot, our waiter was a consummate professional, and the food was outstanding. The only downside was having to battle through the madness that is Waikiki, but it was worth it. Next time I'm back on Oahu, I'll make sure to get back here.

Favorite for special occasions
One of our local favorites for a relaxing sunset dinner for two, entertaining out of town guests with the fireworks view, or bringing in the New years. The food and service is excellent, offering a variety of fresh salads, seafoods to prime rib. 2013's Restaurant Week's menu was superb, especially the Crisp Mac Nut Crusted Kauai Shrimp & the Curly Kale Salad.

My husband and I were told
My husband and I were told to check out this restaurant and we were beyond wowed with everything. From walking up to the restaurant, the service, the food and drinks and the view (we had a corner table so we could watch the fireworks). And to top the entire evening off, we had a waiter named George and he was beyond fantastic, quick wit, funny and just plan wonderful. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!!
Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Great sunset dinner
Enjoyed dinner during restaurant week. The macadamia encrusted shrimp appetizer was outstanding. The Kona Kampachi was very good but the rice tasted very fishy. The chocolate cake was extraordinary. Since it was also my birthday, I topped it off with the raspberry sorbet, compliments of the restaurant.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
As always, food is great
Always a fan of the ocean. House when I am in Honolulu. Consistently good food.

good food, good service and great view of the ocean. Much more reasonably priced than Roy's the night before. Would go back again.

Great place to eat. good food. wish they could cover valet fees.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was delicious, service was prompt, every time my glass of water was empty, someone came by and filled it immediately
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything was fantastic!!!
We LOVED it! Their gluten free options were clearly delineated, which was of enormous benefit, and the main reason we tried it. They are a bit pricey, but SO worth it. George, our server, had a great sense of humor, and was able to make recommendations for me, ALL of which were phenomenal. Not only did I clean MY plate, but I also finished off my husband's blackened prime rib, as I was not about to let it go to waste either! If you're looking for a place with a great atmosphere, beautiful ocean views from your table, and spectacular service/food, this is the place to try!!!
