  • "Our waiter, Matthew and Josh were wonderful! They had a fun & joking rapport with one another. We also jumped in with the jokes and laughter. Eggs benedict with kalua pig has was delicious but egg yolk medium well, poached egg should've been more liquid to blend with flavors. Appears the mahi tempura sandwich portion was significantly smaller, the dipping sauce different from before, darkerand heavier in flavor, and again, namasu just didn't compliment sandwich. Awkward. A pickle would've been better."

  • "Our first treat was tasty bread & butter, with two lovely wine carafes to go with our main courses - wish more restaurants offered thess! While waiting we nibbled on the stir-fried soybeans (chilis, garlic & sesame oil). Lovely, light, flavorful - and not too spicy. My husband enjoyed the Furikake Crusted New Zealand All Natural Ora King Salmon on risotto (without green tea, at his request), while I enjoyed the Soy Braised Short Rib & Kaua'i Prawns. The ribs were full of fall-apart, tasty goodness. The accompanying shrimp and vegetables added lovely side flavors to the meal. The Kula Strawberry Tiramisu was a delicious, shared finish to a lovely meal. Plus, as seniors, we went to-and-from our hotel on The Bus - cheap and reliable."

  • "My family used to go to the Pineapple Room frequently, but service was not very good so we stopped going. The good news is the service was great, But so many other issues. We sat down and started to look at the menu. The waiter came up and said there were 3 items they were out of. Hash brown potatoes, corned beef hash and bananas foster pancakes! Now they do not have a huge menu so missing 2 entrees and a side dish is pretty bad. The restaurant is only open for breakfast on Saturday and Sunday and this was 15 minutes into their Sunday breakfast. This means they were out when they finished serving breakfast on Saturday. Couldn't they have run to the grocery store? Inexcusable! All food was good with exception of Portuguese sausage."

  • "Make sure you have reservations because there were many people waiting outside (as walk-up customers). Overall, the Pineapple Room has always serve high quality foods. Of course for a high-end lunch establishment, a higher than normal price tag is expected. Service was faster than normal so I was pleasantly surprised by the service. I had an excellent clam chowder and caesar salad with kalua pig lunch with did not disappoint."

  • "Lunch at The Pineapple Room was a most enjoyable conclusion to a hunger inducing morning's shopping. The location in Macy's at the Ala Moana shopping centre was both convenient and a welcome respite from the crowds. My Chinese style steamed Onanga with the Honda family tofu was delicious, and the tapioca, coconut and fruit dessert was outstanding. Excellent service and guidance from our waiter. Booked on open table the night before - no waiting for a table. Recommended."

  • "My girlfriend from Maui came in for the day so I thought it would be a treat to go to the Pineapple room at Macy's for an early dinner before she caught the plane back to Maui. My salmon risotto entree was as superb as I remembered it however my friend's miso butterfish entree was waaayyyy too salty. The fish, the Japanese veggies, the seasoned musubis all had the same saltiness. The dish begged for plain white rise to "kill" some of the saltiness. The veggie option needs to be changed too for the same reason. For me, it was inedible because of the salt. We had a strawberry tiramisu for dessert, which was different."

  • "It was so easy booking through Open Table--it took the stress off from looking up the restaurant, dialing, inquiring, waiting, etc. I've told my other friends how easy it is to make reservations. The Pineapple Room surprised us with a birthday dessert since we were celebrating 2 birthdays. We had a late lunch and lingered a while, eating and talking while time just flew. The staff did not rush us at all. The food was delicious and portions were huge."

  • "I came to Hawaii by myself on this trip, and I found out about the Pineapple Room in an online listing of places worth eating that were also suitable for solo travelers. I chose the "early bird" selection and optional wine pairing, and both the food and the wine that accompanied each of the three courses were excellent. The Pineapple Room is inside Macy's at Ala Moana Center, something that is rarely seen in the U.S. these days but quite common in countries I have visited in Asia. There is no view from the windows, but the ambience of the restaurant is very nice, suitable for romantic dinners but also welcoming to families. I highly recommend the Pineapple Room; it is not to be missed."

  • "I have been to Pineapple Room many times before, so this time I decided to bring my father here for a Father's Day lunch. He has never been before and I am happy that he really enjoyed it. Li Anne was our server and very attentive. She was very friendly and offered great recommendations for the menu. I really enjoyed the Guri Guri drink she also recommended for me! Delicious! Thank you for the great service and of course delicious food. Always consistent, which is what I appreciate most. I know that what I order will always be yummy!"

  • "The food and service at Alan Wong's Pineapple Room were both excellent. The menu was varied and represented a modern take on Hawaiian cuisine. The service was courteous without being overbearing. This is a great way to sample the cuisine of Alan Wong without the difficulty of trying to get into his main restaurant."

  • "My family and I were on vacation and doing some shopping at the Ala Moana Mall when we decided to have dinner there. We stumbled upon The Pineapple Room by chance while looking up places on our phone. We'd heard about celebrity chef Alan Wong, and were excited to try his food. The food was okay, but I'd consider it over-priced given the location in a busy Macy's where you have views of shoppers coming and going."

  • "Went online at 11:45am to make luncheon reservations for 12:30pm since 12 noon was not available. Upon arrival at 12:20pm, we checked in with the reception desk where we were told we would have to wait 15-20 minutes. We were fine with the wait although we saw many open tables and even the counter by the kitchen was available. While waiting, another couple approached the reception area who did not have reservations and were told their wait was the same. Went back to the reception desk to confirm the wait and was told "reservations made online 30 minutes prior to the reservation time was not guaranteed." Surprisingly within 5 minutes we were seated. Why even make the reservation when the wait is the same as a walk in?"

  • "Looking at some of the Yelp comments, I was sort of wondering what kind of service I would get here. To my happy surprise, the service was simply outstanding. Very attentive on both food, re-filling water, taking dishes, etc. And since my wife has fish allergies, they made extra accommodations so she could try the Loco Moco prix fixe. Everything was well done food-wise...simply delicious...and although it lacks a stunning view, I would consider this place great for a nice, romantic "date". Try the yuzu soda...simply refreshing with every sip! And the chocolate pudding for dessert is perfect for dark chocoholics. "

Well, because the other diners' voices did not disturb us. I liked not being up close to other diners - it gave us a sense of privacy. We had a nice time... thanx!"

  • "i had pretty high expectations going here, esp with the name "alan wong"...but it turned out to be a disappointment. although our server was very nice & friendly, the service was extremely slow, took over an hour from the time seated til we got our food. there is a beautiful view of the parking lot construction from the windows, & the restaurant itself is pretty noisy--not very nice for a date. i've never written a review on open table before, but i've also never wanted to walk out while waiting for food before either.

  • "Why take reservations if the restaurant is not able to honor it! I have dined here at least a half dozen times and they always make me wait beyond my reservation time. It's as if that is their policy. They always say they are understaffed and rarely apologize. Seems they have more hosts than servers. Check yelp, my opinion is not unique."

  • "The service was very good! Our waiters were constantly checking refilling our drinks. The plantation iced tea was very good and refreshing! Great place to meet for a business lunch meeting because it's not loud and you don't feel out of place if you're dressed up. I ordered one of the specials of the day, the bento. It was pretty good. The bento had a soba salad had a nice vinegarette dressing, tsukemono rice, miso butterfish, chicken karaage, potato salad, kimchi, and sunamono. Lots of flavors going on!"

Restaurant was half full, but our dinner for 5 took over two hours with no alcoholic drinks!"
