Stage Restaurant Hawaii
Experience!The food is delicious, but the service & ambiance elevate the meal to a truly fantastic dining experience. We enjoyed the little touches of the amuse bouche, palate cleanser & small bite of dessert as part of the meal. We enjoyed every aspect of the evening: the meal, the wine, the decor, the expert service, everything. We will certainly recommend Stage to our friends and will definitely return.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemWe have visited Honolulu numerous times and had never heard of this restaurant. This trip, It was recommended by a waiter from another restaurant. It has an unique & modern atmosphere. Great flavors in all dishes but none that was overpowering. Staff was very accommodating to our handicapped guest. Wait staff was both extremely attentive and pleasant. My husband said the encrusted lamb chops were the best chop he ever had - great seasoning and melted in his mouth. I thought the scallops in seasoned butter sauce were outstanding. All of us at the table were pleased with the food. Prix fix with wine paring is highly recommended.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our anniversary andIt was our anniversary and we've been to Stage many times. The food is great and service always attentive!
An excellent place to dine!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSimple awesome!My girlfriend and I had an awesome time at Stage. From the atmosphere to the food to the service, everything was outstanding. I would highly recommend it to others and will definitely head back there again.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNice touches for dinersThe food was great. I had crab crusted monchong, and it was cooked to perfection. The service was excellent. The wait staff was very attentive, without being intrusive. I enjoyed the small touches they offered as well, like a tasting to "prepare your palate" and one to "clear your palate." There was also a bite size piece of maple pound cake at the end to send us off with a taste of sweet, if we didn't have enough dessert! As far as ambience, found it to be very hip, and what looked like a very fun bar scene. Would definitely go back and would also like to try the wine bar next time. It looked fun and great wine selections.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA great "Stage" Performance....The staff treated us very well as if they were staging a performance. With Opentable's assistance, we were happy they knew this was our first visit. Our waiter carefully introduced us to the menu and shared how to order our selections. The menu displayed a variety of options to choose from and their wine list looked well stocked. Before each meal they presented us a way to clean our palate's (avocado w/ponzu sauce and lilikoi sorbet). The presentation of our food looked fabulous and the Buttered Popcorn ice cream was a nice treat to the Decadent Chocolate Cake dessert dish.
Overall we had a wonderful time, we'll definitely return for "The Second Act".5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first lunch experienceThis was my first lunch experience at Stage. As usual, the food was excellent and well-presented. However, while service was quite good, it seemed more casual and lackadaisical than the personable and professional dinner service. We had to wait a few minutes upon arrival for two employees behind the bar to even acknowledge us, and menus and water glasses were delayed as well. The timing was not as organized as my many prior experiences at Stage. Lunch definitely warrants a return visit, but I think there is room for improvement.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, we had a wonderfulAs usual, we had a wonderful Ovation Dinner experience at Stage. The quality of food & service did not disappoint. Our dishes were beautifully presented & so flavorful. I was scraping my plate clean for every course! Desserts are always great at Stage, but we really enjoyed the unique milkshake & spiced doughnut offering this month. Looking forward to our next visit there.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to Stage many timesI've been to Stage many times and always have experienced the great service provided by all and this time was no different. Our waiter and his asstants were fantastic and made the night a very memorable.
The only negative comment I have to make is the the dessert that we tried....the Pineapple Crisp was not delicious as I hoped and I usually am not a dessert person but have in the past enjoyed all desserts I've tried ......except for the Pineapple Crisp.
All in all - I will be returing to Stage in the near future with my family and friends.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstanding restaurantWhether it be a night on the town or special occasion, Stage will not disappoint! Excellent for hosting a parties also..5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb!This place had amazing food and a very posh ambiance. Our waiter, Christian, was one of the best Waiters I've ever had anywhere. We ordered the calamari (awesome) and the poke (even more awesome) appetizers as well as the baked mussels (tasty but not my favorite). My husband loved his seared ahi tuna and my monchong fish with crab crust was very tasty. But, my best advice is to save room for dessert! They make everything, even the sorbet and ice cream, in house and it's AMAZING! The only going I wasn't crazy about was that they weren't playing any music in the restaurant and it was a bit too quiet for me. Otherwise, great restaurant!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect date nightMy husband and I loved our dinner at Stage. I hadn't been here since it first opened, but I'm glad we came back. Service was impeccable. Except for one thing: the family sitting next to us, who arrived after us, got their dinners before we did. I hope it wasn't because the dad was a local "celebrity," but our server and manager both stopped by and apologized for the delay and assured us our meals were on their way out. My husband started with the mushroom soup and I had the diver scallop sashimi. Both fantastic! I had the wasabi and furikake crusted ahi, seared to perfection, with a succotash and a buttery sauce, and hubby had the braised short rib, which he just devoured. No dessert that night, but thanks Chef De Guzman and staff!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Waikiki findSuperb food and service
Don't let the restaurant in the design center fool you! You will not be disappointed. Food is fantastic with great presentation. Added benefit is you get to dine at the design center furniture - no two tables are the same!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, we enjoyed theAs always, we enjoyed the monthly Ovation Dinner at Stage. The food was impeccable, with generous portions & beautiful plating. Service is unparalleled here, with all of the waitstaff helping each other out to provide guests with the best dining experience. Sky incorporated excellent wine pairings & made insightful yet not intrusive presentations on the drinks. Another wonderful evening!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA great little spotThe food was pretty good, although it didn't blow my socks off. However, the service was fantastic. Between the server and the bus staff, my water glass was always full and plenty of bread. Just little things that made the evening enjoyable.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAdministrative Professional LunchWe had a nice lunch for Administrative Professional Day. The restaurant had a nice special menu item with soup,salad or poke appetizer; choice of two entrees and choice of two desserts. I had the kim chee burger which was good.

There was a little longer wait between courses this time around, but the taste of the food and good service made up for it. Overall, this is definitely someplace to return to since the menu always changes.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Honolulu restaurantMy best restaurant experience in Oahu and Honolulu. I went for the tasting menu with the wine pairing - it was just great and tasteful. Given the quality I found the menu also reasonable priced.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, Stage did not disappoint.As usual, Stage did not disappoint. We always look forward to their Wine Ovation Dinners, and appreciate the fact that dinner is offered with or without pairings to appeal to all diners. Much consideration is put into the production, from food quality, plating, private seating, and timing guests' arrival. For a relatively reasonable price, we can have an enjoyable date night.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHighlight of 30th Anniversary.It was the highlight of our 30th anniversary week
