    I had a lot of good food in Waikiki, but this was not some of it. Absolutely terrible burger. Horrible pineapple martini. Salad was pretty good. Their brunch was good. Service was good, and the view of the beach was nice.

    Shor was a great recommendation. Great food, fantastic bview of Waikiki at sunset. Service was wonderful - attentive and not pushy. Waiter did a great job of answering questions and explaining food. A wonderful find. Too bad it is closing at the end of the month! Wish it would stay open for a return visit.

    Dinner starting at 6pm was not conducive to our two year old and the time schedule that the retreat gave us. The steaks were great, however, the lobster was terrible. The waiter even refused to serve us the first one that was cooked. The menus was small and decent sides to go with the dinner selection would have been appreciated. Way too pricy for the amount of food received.

    SHOR is a great setting with a caring management staff; however, that's where things stop. Fish was under cooked and freshness was questionable. Timing of food delivery to our party was very poor and protions were small. Unfortunately, we can't recommend SHOR.

    We were really happy...until the last twenty minutes. As we are waiting for our check, a four girls/women come in (think stereotype from movies here) and pretty much commandeered the server. So we had to watch our server with our check in his hand stuck at the table next to us for at least ten minutes answering the most asinine questions about the menu/restaurant - or rather what's *not* on the menu and why the restaurant didn't offer such and such. We felt bad for the man, but he seemed at a lost as to what to do other than stand there and deal with it. So, my recommendation would be to train your servers how to politely excuse themselves from high-maintenance customers so that the other patrons don't suffer for it. :)

    It was father's day, i requested a note to be place on the table to say "My Golden Treasure" and to have a tulip or rose also. I did get a email confirmation stated that i could order flowers from a website. So i didn't get a flower. Got to the restaurant early, so we sat at the bar. We are not drinker, but we did get a drink and it was excellent, it was a lava flow and coconut mint mojito. Bartender was great. Then the hostess came and got us and apologize for not having anote or flower for me. I was okay with it, my husband was already happy. But they made up with a special made hawaii coffee because they sell seattle best. Then after dinner they brought cheesecake over and on the plate in chocolate they wrote My Golden Treasure. :)

    The cod and the NY steak were delicious. The service was really good. Little bit pricey but totally worth it. Not easy to find - it's on the third level in the east tower, the escalators are a bit hidden. Restrooms were really good and clean.

    Wanting a very special dining experience, my boyfriend and I visited SHOR on our last night of our vacation in Oahu. We requested an ocean view when making reservations, and were seated at a spacious, tiki-lit table that overlooked the beach...very romantic and relaxing. The lobster/crab mac and cheese and ahi/poke appetizers were our favorites, though everything we tried was delectable and gorgeously plated. Our server, Gary, ended up being one of our favorite people that we met on the trip. His recommendations, impeccable service and friendliness made for a dinner that far exceeded our expectations and for a beautiful way to spend our last night on the island.

    This restaurant was not what I expected; it is not an elegant, quiet place for a special dinner out. The food was very good, but the screaming children, loud clanging kitchen noises, and lack of nice table settings made me happy to leave. It is probably better for breakfast or lunch.

    We enjoyed a very fresh & delicious dinner at this place. They have a small, well chosen menu. The ingredients are from local producers and the seafood from sustainable resources, what is very important for us. The view is wonderful, overlooking the beach and palm trees. We booked the table in advance and got the best place right in front of the outdoor patio. A special thank to Brandon our server who was very pleasant and did a great job!

    Although the restaurant was listed as a seafood restaurant, there was hardly any fish on menu we were given at restaurant as opposed to one they had posted. Hostess asked if we were hotel guests. When told we were not, we were taken to a less desirable table. Since there was no fist on menu, we ordered a beef dish that was VERY tiny. Restaurant was very overpriced for what they gave you.

    We chose Shor for dinner because the menu featured quality ingredients like grass fed beef. We shared a meal and got our own desserts! To be noted, I could not recommend the parts of the meal he chose. His cocktail, the Lava Flow, was too sweet even for a Lava Flow. Mine was the Hana Passion and it was PERFECT. We ordered the opah and it was AMAZING cooked just as is, but we ordered two sauces on the side. His was the bourbon, blech! And mine was the hollandaise. The "H" in hollandaise stands for HEAVEN! For dessert, he got the cheese cake and I got the pineapple/caramel gelato. Score 3 for the wife team! The cheesecake was not good, but the gelato was divine and plenty for two! Can't beat the view of the sunset but bring a jacket.

    We ate here before heading to airport for late nite flight, so ate lite meals. It was beautiful sitting on patio with torches lit and overlooking the beach scene. The crab cake was delicious as well as the scallop salad. Two of our party enjoyed the pizzas and one had salmon and asparagus. Everyone enjoyed their meals and would return next time we are in Honolulu. Excellent service Nd food.

    Coming from New Zealand, the booking went totally smoothly for New Year's Eve And all my requests were acknowledged and we were made to feel special. The only down side was me not realising we had to leave by 9.30 pm as the restaurant then had a private function.I may have missed those details requiring a limited dining time , having never used the open table online booking system. So we were unable to stay to watch the amazing fireworks from this venue.However the staff were very apologeteic and we did not feel rushed at all otherwise.

  • Disappointing meal
    aplusdiner
    Dined on 12/30/2013
    Even for a hotel restaurant, our dinner was very disappointing. We just didn't have the energy to fight the crowds on Waikiki and thought we'd enjoy SHOR in our hotel. The Kona abalone appetizer was delicious, but consisted of three TINY abalone for $12. Heirloom tomato salad was delicious and plentiful. We both ordered the pancetta wrapped sea bass, which the waiter assured us was very fresh. Worst fish we've had in years! Dry, only lukewarm, and tasteless. Clearly it had been prepared, frozen, and reconstituted in some unsatisfactory process. Our waiter was very friendly and cordial, but non-existent for most of our meal. So much so that we went through the entire bottle of wine - slowly - before our main course arrived.

    I had to make a last minute reservation for Christmas dinner and was surprised that that there were opening for Shor. Results: 1. Seated 20 minutes late. 2. Minimal selection 3. One seafood selection (fishy aftertaste), Prime rib, Turkey, & Ham ..... all slightly on the salty side 4. One tired looking Santa in front 5. Entertainment leaves a lot to be desired 6. Salad & soup were good but NO seconds.... served... a very small portion of each on one small rectangular plate. 7. It took a while to get the salad & soup... beverage... used plates to be removed... bill to be returned in a timely manner. 8. Paid $85 each for a nothing special buffet worth $29 at the most!!! 9. Recommended for rich tourists who don't know any better.

    Christmas Day dinner was $85 buffet only. Our 7:15 reservation got us a table at around 7:40, after watching it first being given to another's party. 15 min after seating we were brought a bland carrot ginger bisque and about 1/2 cup of papery mixed greens. No dressing. At the buffet there was only ONE vegetable option: a thoughtless mix if shriveled carrots and zucchini with no herbs, spices, or other flavoring, though they did also have pasty mashed potatoes. 8 dessert options, all appeared freshly unwrapped from their Costco packaging. The fresh sliced ham was tasty, if chewy. prime rib was tough and bland. Three sauces for the meat were dull and Sysco-like. Pretzel rolls were tough and tasted like a stick. Noise level was high.

    We booked a table as soon as reservations opened but were disappointed to be seated inside near the kitchen. Would have been lovely to be outside and see and hear the Christmas choir perform other than that food was lovely until dessert which was bland an un appealing. Food selection s good but limited. Other than that nice evening.

  • Thanksgiving Dinner at Shor

    Dined on 11/28/2013
    The restaurant was heavily booked due to Thanksgiving and provided a buffet style dinner. You had to help yourself to appertisers, etc. and there was a "Turkey Station" where a chef carved off your require meat, i.e. Turkey, Ham, Turkey roll stuffed with duck. I don't have a problem with this style of service but because of the numbers, the queues were very large and people were bumping into each other and pushing in to get at the food. Not a great selection...soup for appertiser, vegetables for the entree were not cooked and only warm. One of the desserts, Pecan Pie was just a sloshy mess as people tried to cut slices. US190.00 including tip for two. not worth it!

    The restaurant week menu at SHOR was outstanding, especially the perfectly cooked and seasoned fish. The restaurant accommodated our request for a meatless variation on its menu, and gave us excellent seats overlooking the beach. The service was exceptional, and the wine special was as fine as the dinner. We will certainly return here.

    I adore this restaurant. The produce is all locally sourced and most of the meats as well. If something was flown in, they tell you from where and if it's wild caught or farm-raised. You can tell the chef & kitchen have been hard at work putting this together. The flavors were delicious and everything was cooked properly. Highly enjoyable!

    We had an ocean view table at sunset. Beautiful. We started off with a mix of Oysters with some house made crackers that were excellent. My wife and I split a house salad that looked like bag lettuce with onions and not much else. The dressing was very salty and even though we split the salad, we only ate about half. The entrees were ok, but my the fish in my shrimp and fish dish was a little dry. My wife thought she ordered a lobster dish and instead got more of a fish and lobster stew. I chalked that up to just not realizing what she was ordering. All in all the food was adequate, but for what we paid I would have expected a higher quality meal. The service was excellent.
