Great Food & Location
This was my late birthday celebration. I took my Family to The Vernada in March as an after the wedding get together. The views of the The Kahala property and the water are quite pretty. Love coming here for Afternoon Tea! This was our first time going in for an early dinner. Had Afternoon Tea reservation at 5pm. The tea service was great, but we wanted a little more. We stayed for a light meal. Enjoyed the Ahi Musubi, Short Rib Tempura, Naan Bread with Ahi Dip and Onion Soup, (the soup was delicious). If you can't get your preferred seating at Hoku's, try The Veranda. The manager, Kelli-Ann was GREAT. Wished we stayed later to hear David Swanson. Oh well, always a next time!

We went for tea but there
We went for tea but there was no one to greet us, so we just sat on a table and waited. Finally a young lady showed up. She helped a table with guest then finally came to us. The place itself was very nice.

The Veranda is a great place
I was looking forward to a relaxing, casual time and was not disappointed at the Veranda. We especially enjoyed the smooth jazz music by Wendell Au, Adj Larioza and Mike Grande.

Monday Night Jazz
So happy to see that the Kahala is offering great jazz again - plan to be there as often as I can on Monday nights - wonderful music, great atmosphere and very nice small plates to share.

we attended the high tea for a joint birthday outting. the food was delicious and the hotel was beautiful. it was fun to lounge on a couch. we were surprised at the end to get a birthday treat, it was special. the servers were friendly however it would have been nice to be checked on more. we wanted to order more drinks but it took so long between each visit. we appreciated that we didn't feel rushed to leave but it was annoying when as had to get up to pay

Arrived early and was seated, no problem. Friendly servers, nice atmosphere. One of the best places for afternoon tea on Oahu.

Wonderful night of Jazz
We went on a Sunday night to hear Rocky Brown and friends. The venue was perfect. Open feel, with choice to sit in the enclosed area near the band or out on the outdoor lanai. Menu selection limited but perfect for the casual setting. Great mango drink. Music was amazing! And I learned that every Sunday they have jazz. and on other nights as well.

Fabulous jazz, beautiful setting
The Kahala is a beautiful hotel and Sunday and Monday night jazz at the Veranda is a treat. They have an assortment of very nice small dishes at fairly reasonable prices and a good selection of wines by the glass. I had a sushi and sashimi plate, which was fresh and delicious, and my husband had the short rib tempura and potatoes, which he enjoyed as well. The jazz was outstanding. We will be back often.

Great music with casual dining
We arrived at the Kahala too late for dinner so went to the bar for a drink out first night in Hawaii. The music by David at the piano was so enjoyable we chose the Veranda for dinner the next night because the menu looked good and we wanted to hear the music again. The cocktails (Jamaican My-tai and Pimm & Proper) were addicting, and the food and service excellent. The music, mostly classic standards with a little Michael Jackson thrown in, was superb. The kitchen is the same as Hoku next door and the food is well prepared and delicious. This is a casual relaxing alternative to the pricier restaurants at the Kahala.

Great romantic experience
Great spot for tea! We had a wonderful view of the dolphins, ocean and pool views. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Can't wait to go back. It's like entering a new world. Peaceful and romantic....
