Diner Reviews
  • "The food is overpriced. My lobster bisque was excellent but my scallops were presented in a spicy sauce which masked their delicate flavor. Other guests had steaks but have had better at other steak restaurants. At $50 plus for entrees the food should be outstanding. Our tab, with wine, for 4 was well over $600. We could have a more memorable meal, foodwise, elsewhere, for less. The service was pleasant but there were some hitches."

  • "We were celebrating a birthday and had a great experience. The waiters were wonderful, they made suggestions and let us know when we almost ordered too much food. There was a live piano player who was wonderful and helped to set the mood in the restaurant. Our booth had a great view of waikiki and ala moana boat harbor. Couldn't have asked for anything more, it was the perfect birthday dinner!"

  • "First time going.Recommended by friends. Service was great. Staff was friendly and helpful. Sashimi and seared scallops were really good. Prime was on point. The NY Cheesecake and liikoi creme brule was amazing. We will be returning. Great experience"

  • "It was the first time for majority of our party dining there and we were excited about the spectacular views. Unfortunately we were given the private wine room, so no views, and felt like we were forgotten. However, when the employees did come into the room, service was excellent."

  • "The service was excellent and the food delicious - the wife and I totally enjoyed celebrating our 44 wedding anniversary at your new restaurant and we look forward to returning with the memories and qualities of the Ala Moana Hotel's Ole Summit Restaurant. Good Luck and hang in there as it should get even better with continued experience striving for full quality and Class! Thank you for the fine memorable evening!"

  • "The food was excellent, but when I asked that my glass of wine be brought to the table with my dinner, we asked 3 of the servers and it appears that the server who was too bring the wine FORGOT and had to be reminded by server #1. It would appear that the wine order to server #1 should have taken care of this and should not have involved waiter #3, who jumped in to assist, when he should have left us to the service of waiter #1. Waiter #2, who was refilling my water, kept asking me if I received my wine and left to tell waiter #3. Other than that the dinner was great to celebrate a special occasion and waiter #1 (great personality and helpful), did present us with his apology and a complimentary dessert for the occasion."

  • "The Signature was fabulous. It was my first time to eat there and the view was spectacular, and food, amazing! My rib-eye was perfectly cooked to my liking, the garlic truffle mash was really good, and the sides you can do family style. The appetizers we had were also excellent. We had the oysters on the half shell and the ahi poke, both very good. I would definitely come back."

  • "My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and were very disappointed with the level of service. We were required to pour our own wine and there was just a overall lack of professionalism and attention. We live in Honolulu and have dined at The Signature previously. However, we noticed a reduction in the number of diners on a Saturday night."

  • "Loved the service and food. The steak was cooked perfectly and was tender and flavorful. The scallops were a bit spicy but tender and delicious. The chocolate cake was possibly the best I have ever had! We were seated behind a group with 4 children who ran around and were very noisy. The adults were also talking in shout level voices. Not once did the adults talk to the children about their behavior and the restaurant staff didn't say anything either. I think normally it must be a beautiful romantic place, but the clientele left much to be desired. We will definitely give this place another chance because the food and service were excellent and the view was worth a million bucks. Hopefully we won't be seated next to the circus again!"

  • "As soon as we arrived we were welcomed and immediately seated. Our waiter (Jocko) extremely helpful and personable. He took time to explain the menu, made recommendations based on his personal favorites and past customers. We were not disappointed! We were given ample time to converse from the time we ordered our cocktails and in between each course. Even compted a couple of items (Terrific way to make a first impression!). Caesar Salad was very good. Our Main Courses were all prepared exactly as we had requested. Ribeye (Excellent!), Butterfish (just melted in our mouth) and Pork Chop (Wow!)... Can you tell we Had to Sample each others dishes?! Dessert - Cheese Cake and Pineapple/Kale Sorbet ... To Die For !!! Definitely Come Back"

  • "We had read an article in Sunset Magazine and decided to try Signature, we were very happy with the entire evening. We had calamari appetizer with a great fusion type sauce, lobster bisque and French onion soup. We stayed with steak for the main course, rib eye and filet. My wife and I had the rib eye medium rare...it was cooked perfectly...and to us was better than our last visit to Ruth's Chris. My sister had the filet well done...I wouldn't do that to a steak...and gave each of us a bite. I was surprised at how juicy and flavorful it was despite her ordering it we'll done. We skipped desert because we were stuffed. BONUS...they are located on the 36th floor and every table has a view."

    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "My third and last visit-I kept hoping it improve... Service was slow even though it was not very busy. Our drink order was taken quickly and dropped off but no one came back for the dinner order for quite some time. Bread was dropped off and still no dinner order taken. When the food did arrive 2 of the 3 meat entrees were not cooked as ordered. Took so long to get a server's attention that the other person in the party was nearly done eating. My steak was returned well done, not med and so extremely salty that I could only eat a couple of pieces. We wanted dessert and waited a long time before we were able to flag down another server. Sorry to say we won't be back. The prices are too high for that kind of service and mediocre dishes."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "we ordered the rib eye and it was very delicious, however it was not as tender as I had hoped and I thought it was a bit overseasoned. that said, the complementary truffle oil potatoes that came with the steaks was excellent. we enjoyed a dessert of chocolate layer cake while watching the night view and fireworks over the hilton hotel"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The restaurant has gone through three chefs and sadly, the lack of consistency shows. We were disappointed with the scallop appetizer, which came to the table in a soupy mixture of Cajun and white cream sauces. The scallops were of good quality, but luke warm on the outside and ice cold in the center. Also, the lobster mac and cheese has changed. What used to be a beautiful combination of ample lobster chunks and cheesy goodness has evolved into a boat of noodles with that same Cajun sauce and less lobster. On the positive side, the steaks were delicious, albeit a bit over-seasoned, and the ambiance is probably most romantic in the city. We will return, but I'm hoping for an experience more like the Signature that we first experienced."

  • "One of the ways I gauge a five star restaurant is by how my water gets refilled. I remember when this place was still Aaron's and as soon as you sip your cup they are pouring more water ..... that's service. My glass of water went almost empty a fee times when I was at Signitures and it wasn't that busy. Our waitress was nice but I think our experience could've been much better there."

  • "Ahi katsu was our starter...yum. Steaks were amazing and tender. Lobster Mac and Cheese was so tasty.server told us he'd never seen anyone devour the Lilikoi Creme Brûlée as fast as we did...haha."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Awesome panoramic views! Food was great, service was at times very attentive but overall inconsistent and not quite what you would expect at a place of this price range. Live piano music was lovely and free birthday dessert was perfect. Overall good experience, marred only by wait staff not doing what they said they would on a number of occasions."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Signature has very good steaks. But they lack satisfactory in their seafood part of the menu. The 2 dishes we had order were the snapper & a lobster. Both were over cooked. The fish was fairly dry while the lobster was on the brink of being rubberized. The wait time for our food was over an hour."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Everything we ordered from the fried calamari, ahi katsu, Caesar's salad, French onion soup, rack of lamb, and miso butterfish was outstanding. We will definitely be going back again for my father's birthday!"

  • "My wife and I really enjoy this place. We have come several times now. We love to have dinner at the Piano, where you can look out at the view, and enjoy conversation with the pianist! The food is great. Love the wines. Although the servers try, they are not quite up to the standards that the restaurant is trying to achieve (ie. pricing, menu, etc). We're hoping that they continue to try to get better at the 5 star service."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The food, ambiance and view makes it well worth the price. It did make the night one to remember. We often visit steakhouses and critic them. The lobster bisque is one of the better ones we have tasted so far. My steak was perfect and enjoyed the lilikoi creme brulee."

  • "I took my 81 year old mom for her birthday and was pleasantly surpirsed with a slice of chocolate cake and a candle. We ordered one entree, split a salad and had an appetizer with the dessert, it was plenty for 2....great view! Elevators are pretty quiet coming up so we had to wait a few times as we missed it going down."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "While the food was adequate (maybe 80% of 53 or Michel's) the presentation and service was poor. Although the restaurant was not overly crowed, we waited at least 20 minutes intervals to order, 20 before our appetizers came, 20 minutes after our appetizers were cleared before our entrees arrived. Twenty minutes after clearing these we had to flag down our waiter to get a dessert menu and waited 20 minutes for this to come as well. Maybe they need more kitchen help. We spent about $340 for two; but at this price point there are other places that deliver a better experience. The Signature's reception staff and wine steward were attentive (5 min wine delivery) courteous and swift; but, the experience when south from there. Garry G."

  • "We went to Signature Prime to celebrate an anniversary with family. It was a great dinner - savory french onion soup, delicious steak, and the truffle potatoes are yummy! We had a nice view of the Ala Wai and Honolulu, though walking around the restaurant there were better views. The staff were attentive and live piano was a nice touch. The only downside to our evening was that they were out of certain steaks and desserts. I understand it was a holiday weekend, but there should have been better planning."
