    The food was good, but it was very loud in there because they have no soft surfaces in the entire restaurant to absorb sound. Also, beware that they have two menus: a bar menu that has good food options on it for a bargain price, and a dinner menu which is more fancy dining and around $30/plate.

    I really enjoyed the Restaurant Week menu. In the past we've never experienced a problem with seating, but we were directed to table right next to the bar & when we requested to be seated in the dining area, the hostess said she wasn't able to do that without getting permission from a different hostess, who I assumed was her supervisor. We were not interested in the entertainment & the rest of the dining area (outside of the partitioned bar area) was wide open with only two 4tops occupied, so I really didn't understand why our request was denied. There were many servers standing around in the dining area without customers so I also don't feel that lack of staff was the issue. If we return, I will remember to specifically ask for dining room seating, not bar area!

    Food was average, restaurant ridiculously hot and staff lacked interpersonal skills. Our server was lovely however the other servers were quite rude and dismissive. We sat under a slow fan and when we enquired if it could be set higher we were told that it's broken. No offer to move to another table or real concern that we were literally drenched. It clearly doesn't seem to keep up standards as it runs on its popularity with the tourists. Definitely would not recommend or go back. To be honest, I can't imagine anyone going back.

    Eclectic menu, decent taste, small portions.... you will need two to three appetizers to eat, or one main and one appetizer.. some dishes are okay, some "try too hard" to be something.... service was fast in the beginning, and then missing at the end.......... everyone seems busy even though they are not busy... nice view, nice sunset, overall worth a visit. -G.

    We were surprised by this "hotel" restaurant -- great view of the beach, wonderful energetic vibe, super friendly and helpful waitstaff, and surprisingly well-prepared and delicious food. We all loved our dinners -- spicy shrimp, mac nut mahi, baby back ribs, and beach boy (?) seafood combination. Everything was cooked to perfection, including the sides, and servings were very generous. Added bonus was free valet parking. We will definitely be back and highly recommend Tiki's!

    Lukewarm (temperature and taste) food. Lukewarm (dark and dated - run down?) decor. Lukewarm (not crowded with no people energy) atmosphere. The one plus was the good service. We went second night of our 10 day trip (business/vacation) thinking we would come back if we liked the place. Never made it back.

    As we booked early, we were rewarded by getting prime seating overlooking the sea. Excellent food, ambiance and service. Even better, we booked on a Wednesday, where wine is half price, so even better value. We hope to visit again before we leave. Only downside, was being a ‘Cocktail buffs’, we were disappointed with their cocktails, which seemed somewhat short on alcoholic content and not that cheap. We stayed at this hotel 31 years ago and unfortunately Tiki’s didn’t exist then.

    My husband had Miso butterfish with brown rice and I had slow cooked pork roast over pumpkin purer with vanilla scented applesauce. Both were from the Specialties menu and they were extremely tasty and more creative than other restaurants we had tried I. Waikiki. We enjoyed the breezes from our table on the veranda with views of beach and palm trees. Highly recommend Tiki's

  • Terrible Service - Good Food
    badexperience
    Dined on 10/9/2014
    Food was good, but the dining experience was terrible. We had to flag the waiter down for everything. He made excuses for everything instead of making it right. At the end of the meal, we put $100 in cash and a credit card to charge the balance. The waiter ran the entire total on the card. When I called him over and told him that I gave him cash and it wasn't deducted from the charge, he said that someone found $100 on the floor and they put it in the safe. We watched him walk over to a busboy who took the $100 out of his wallet. Seems very deceptive - check your billed amount if you pay with some cash and some credit. We alerted the manager to the issue and got nothing but an apology. Food was good, but not worth the hassle.

    We chose this restaurant for the Tiki cocktails and were really impressed with the food! He had a filet and I had the (extra) garlicky shrimp. We loved the coconut shrimp for an appetizer. Nice tip, when you order a cocktail you can get one of their signature tiki glasses for only $5 - we went home with three! We are outside had a great view of the ocean and palm trees, and Connor was a great server..perfect for our last night of vacation.

    Had dinner here Saturday night. Booked a reservation and table was ready on time. Very nice server, answered questions about the food and how various dished were prepared. The menu is interesting and inspired by many Hawaiian ingredients. I loved the vibe here and the pretty view overlooking the ocean. There was live music so that was a nice touch. Good value for money. Will go back again next time we are in Honolulu.

    Food was so bad! Appetizers were sweet and un appetizing! I have never sent anything back ever but I had to send back the butterfish entree. The fish was slimy and super sweet! The brown rice below it was even sweeter! The greens below the rice was sweeter than a spoon full of sugar! It was so bad that I lost my appetite after everything being so sweet! Never again!

    Local Hawaiian specialities done well. Kalua pork was awesome. My Hawaiian spare ribs and grilled shrimp special we're delicious and paired well with a Sonoma cab from the wine list. The view of Waikiki beach at sunset and convenient walking distance from hotels are and added bonus and account for a the pricey entrees, but we'll worth it on vacation. Be sure to enjoy the taro rolls and sweet butter.

    We made our reservation through OpenTable and asked for a beach view. It said that they are a first come, first serve item, but we took our chance. We were lead to a noisy, high traffic table in the middle, but when we asked they said that if we could wait about 30 minutes we should be able to get an outside table - and it happened. Food was good, bartender was fun while we were waiting, not our choice for a romantic evening, but we had a wonderful time and would return again when back.

    We eat at Tiki's often and usually have the fish. One of my colleages had the Wed Special Prime Rib and I had the Baby Back Ribs. We both let the water know that the meat was somewhat dry and tough. Our water didn't do anything about it when the bill came. Our third colleage had the fish special and really like it. I was very disappointed that with two out of three meals not so good that the waiter didn't offer to do something as a remedy.

    If you can get a table on the outer balcony, do so. Best to reserve to get a chance at this though. This was my second time a Tiki's and I have largely enjoyed each trip. I really enjoyed my grilled salmon with ginger soy sauce. The restaurant also makes an effort to support local suppliers which is nice to see and reflected in some of the preparations. For desert, the chocolate mocha cake was delish! Service was uneven. For example, my order to the waitress for desert resulted in another staffer coming out very quickly with the dish; however, before I could say anything, the fellow was gone and I was stuck staring at the cake with no fork to eat it! Seems it takes 2 or 3 staff to get anything done there and those handoffs mess them up.
