Diner Reviews
  • "Admittedly we did not have high expectations for this place. We figured it would be all gimmick. We were very much surprised by the quality of food and exceptional service. And the gimmick was kind of cool as well. Nice evening out."

  • "The view from the restaurant was amazing. I looked through the window almost the entire dinner. The food was good, not mind-blowing, but good. I enjoyed the non-alchohlaic lilikoi beverage the most. The service was very polite and helpful."
    Dined on 8/25/2014
  • "The coctails were pour for the night, service from our main waiter was as if he was tired and couldn't waitlloyd to get home all other staff were great. Earlier dinner is best to prevent a lot of noise and actiity from happy hour patrons at 9.30pm, spoils the occasson."

  • "The Arare Crusted Omaha is TO DIE FOR!!! Generous filet of onaga. Moist and flavorful! The Abubu Arare adds a light, crunchy texture to the onaga that pops in you mouth. Beautiful night view of Honolulu from Ewa to Diamond Head, Manoa Valley to Waikiki Beach!"

  • "I took my granddaughter there. We had a good experience. I appreciated the children's menu options, which were pretty inexpensive. My shrimp and pasta were delicious. The waiters were helpful and attentive."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "Wanted to love it but it missed expectations. Upon seating, no explanation of how long it takes restaurant to revolve. Server was either assigned too many tables or occupied with other diners, our child's order though placed first did not arrive until 30 minutes until ours did so we had to send our food back to keep warm. Also while advertised as tempura chicken, it very easily looked and tasted like frozen nuggets from the grocery store. Adult apps and entrees were underwhelming (tuna poke, fish taco, short ribs). We never had a chance to look at our photo... It was a very disappointing meal."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Enjoyed the dinner celebration with my family. The short ribs were awesome. My steak was a little tough. Next time I will get the short ribs. Our waiter was attentive."

  • "Great service and great food. Would highly recommend the scallop appetizer."

  • "I have waited to go to Top of Waikiki for a long time. Having tasted food from all over, I wanted to try the "best of the best". I went for my boyfriends birthday dinner, and I had surprised him with reservations. The mood and aesthetic atmosphere of the place was amazing, but it left a lot to be desired. The butter and bread was amazing, the wine was perfect, and the view was breath taking. But the portions were VERY small. The "mashed potatoes with potato chips" was terrible. It tasted like instant potatoes! For something claiming to be the best of the best, I left hungry and disappointed. I also had to grab the waiter a few times for simple things, like butter for the bread, refills, and the check. I would not go back again."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "food was very flavorful and the service was excellent. heads-up: it's best to order the appetizer to go with your entree, as the entrees maybe smaller than what most are used to. however, think in terms more of higher quality instead of piles of lower-quality food. again, service was excellent and they really make an effort to "go above and beyond.""

  • "The scenery cannot be better than from the Top of Waikiki. I had not been to the restaurant in about six years. The wait staff informed me that the menu was new. One of the appetizers we had was the scallops. It was a little rubbery and disappointing The pan-seared ahi was cooked perfectly. That being said, none of what we ate was exceptional. If I return to Top of Waikiki in the future, it will probably be only for cocktails and to enjoy the view. The staff is exceptional. They are attentive, accommodating and informative."

  • "Came here to close out our vacation in Oahu. also celebrating a birthday. Nicely done meals, a bit too exotic for our girls 14,12, 9 though. They were easily satisfied with just fettucini alfredo. Pork chop and duck were excellent."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Our daughter and son-in-law ate here during their honeymoon and recommended we do the same. We arrived around 5:45 and enjoyed seeing the views as the sun was beginning set. The ambiance, food, drinks and service were all excellent. We are so glad we ended our vacation with this wonderful experience."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Fantastic view, enjoyed the novelty of the rotating room. However, the service was slow, the waiters were the least friendly we had over our holiday. They seemed more intent on pleasing other customers over ourselves as my partener and I were one of the youngest couples in the room. The food was enjoyable."

  • "Food, service and views were spectacular. A bit pricey but worth every bit! Try to time your visit for sunset! Great date night!"

  • "My husband and I visited the restaurant for our 16th anniversary. We were very disappointed with the food (it was not terrible but definitely not delicious or worth the high prices) The service was great and the view was good."

  • "My husband and I were visiting Oahu and met up with a friend for dinner after some city exploring. We were worried that we were a little under dressed since we had been walking around all day, but we were treated wonderfully. There was a mixture of casual and special occasion there, and our server was friendly and knowledgable. The food and drinks were delicious and the view was incredible. We had a great time! If you're in town visiting, we definitely recommend coming here for the food, as well as the amazing city views that you will see as the restaurant slowly rotates."

  • "We booked for a birthday celebration. The service and food was fantastic. The staff were friendly and attentive without being in your face every 5 minutes. The food portions were the perfect size and the taste and presentation were without fault. A fantastic dining experience. The price we paid was very reasonable as well. We would highly recommend."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "We arrived early and were seated promptly. The service was great, food super delicious (enough for lunch next day :-) and over the top view! They gave us a special dessert w/candle to celebrate the occasion!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Basically a good dining experience. The food was very good and reasonably priced, I especially enjoyed the wasabi mashed potatoes and the short ribs. The view was not bad, but its not the best night view spot in Honolulu. A bit noisy inside, had trouble hearing my wife when we were talking, but to be expected from a popular tourist spot. Overall, we had a good time and would recommend it to others."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "A unique dining experience for a family, and reasonably kid friendly. Nice views that would be good also for a romantic dinner :)"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The view was incredible along with nice food selections and wine lists. We went on a Friday night and it was extremely busy. Our waiter ended up barely tending to us. When our drinks were empty it took a long time for him to ask if we would like another cocktail. It seemed like they were understaffed because we could not get anyone else's attention to get a refill for our cocktails. All of the waiters seem to be rushing around to serve their tables. Nice ambiance because you got to see all of Waikiki at night from above, but service could have been much better for price of food."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Made the reservation on line and still had to wait 15 - 20 minutes for our table. Food was delicious but once it arrived we never saw the waiter again until it was time to leave. If you're hungry when you arrive, be prepared to have appetizers and desert because the entrées are so small it's ridiculous. The half lobster tail that came with the $45 surf and turf was smaller than my little finger and the steak was 4 bites. NO EXAGGERATION! Still enjoyed it for the view and the good friends. A one time experience only."

  • "Great food, great service, great view, but the the restaurantneeds to upgrade the facilities. My in-laws took us to TOW over 15 years ago and there seems to have been no investment in upkeep over the years. With some investment for a facelift the restaurant would improve across the board for customers and employees."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Top of Waikiki gives guests a wonderful view of Honolulu, and it rotates 360 degrees once an hour, which is the perfect amount of time to enjoy all the food, have a wonderful dessert, and see the spectacular sunset and then fireworks going off over the water. The food is delicious, and there are a wide variety of items from which to choose. We also had a wonderful server who knew the menu and the wines. We'll definitely go back the next time we're on Oahu."

  • "I was able to get last- minute reservations via open table; we were able to walk from our hotel and were seated as soon as we got there (30 min early)! We food was excellent, service was good, and view was incredible. (Access currently limited to escalator-only for top two floors due to construction; kitchen cargo elevator is available for disabled patrons). Too full for dessert, but it sounded yummy too."

  • "Dined on Friday night, everyone was dressed up! Booked via 'Opentable' system on the website. Luckily; as I had phoned the restaurant, left a message for a booking, my phone call was never returned. We arrived on time but had to wait a further 20mins for our table due to diners enjoying their evening. We had the Prix Fixe Tasting Menu - 6 courses. Was delicious! We also had the wine pairing - a definite NO!! They were nothing special, nor are they named wines. I suggest ordering a nice bottle from their great wine list and enjoying that with your meal. The service was very sporadic. Bread came past, but you had to ask of it. Wine and food for each course was very hit and miss with timing! Atmosphere was great, view was great!A definite try!"

  • "I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. I especially enjoyed the Korean Poke, the fish was very fresh. I was entertaining out of town guests and they enjoyed the revolving view of Waikiki-Honolulu. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My son enjoyed the bartender and his creative concoction. The negative side, the place needs a face-lift, especially coming up the escalator. Saw hole in the ceiling."
