We had a great view of the city as
it began to be lit up for the evening from our table. Very romantic. Good soft live music playing. Not overpowering conversation. Great bar with amazing works of liquid art. The absinthe is a must for an after dinner drink."

Came to celebrate my friends
Birthday and it was a perfect evening, the service, the food top notch! Can't wait to go back."

very disappointed for what we
thought was a Trump highlight hotel. ...noise from the street, peek view only to the ocean, limited selection of beers, no music. ...had a drink ...then left to Moana Surfrider where we got music, ocean view, and good overall service."

I expected anything with Trump
name on it to be high-end but this was too much money for too little."

This is my second time but I think
it will be my last.... There were group of some punky kids right next table and was so loud that we couldn't enjoy our food or drink - not to mention the sunset. And our server seemed more attentive to other tables ( touristy ) but not ours. May be because we're next to the really loud goup of people? Or because we were not the tourist? Anyways , was not worth it. There were so much food left over but nobody asked us how the food was."

This is more of a bar on the 6th
floor of the Trump hotel. It's open air with a great view of the Honolulu skyline and an OK view of the ocean. It gets more street noise than would be desirable for the atmosphere they are trying to achieve. There was a solo guitarist/vocalist doing mostly soft rock and folk. We were seated at a lounge area of couches big enough for 8 people, despite just the 3 of us. It was still quite comfortable and pleasant. Excellent drinks. The menu has good variety and everything was tasty although some items were a bit spicy. The Kalbi spring rolls were better without the sauce which was way too salty. The bill adds up quickly though as you go through several plates. Overall- enjoyable, nice, not spectacular."

We heard from a friend about this
restaurant and glad we did! They serve small plate items and all were very good. We recommend this place for a great view of the Waikiki sunset!"

We had a perfect dining
experience! Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable and the food was amazing. The view is perfect! You can see the ocean and a wonderful view of the Honolulu skyline. They also had live music!"

Variety of small plates include
western and Asian specialties. We chose this restaurant bar for a later light dinner after the Pro Bowl game and it perfectly fit the bill. After a starter cheese and cured meat plate with our martinis we chose spring rolls and a grilled lamp chop, all perfectly prepared. It was nice to have very good "regular food" after a few days of high end specialty restaurants.Cappucino and desert was excellent and the view of the western half of Waikaki at night was dramatic. Although not on the beach, the Trump hotel would be a good choice as well . We were very satisfied with our choice."

Great spot in Waikiki. Simple food
done right. Not as pricey as the ambience would suggest. Extensive drinks list."

We love this spot & go there
often. It's a nice place to go to "chillax!""

A bit disappointed. Expected more
from a Trump establishment. We think they used Velveeta for the Nacho cheese - runny stuff. Edamame dip was bland. Nothing too special about other fare. Then it took forever to get a dinner menu. The place needs blinds that they can roll down to cut the glare right before sunset, especially if you're seated in the view seats. Otherwise, the view of the sunset was beautiful and the fireworks from the Hilton were an added bonus."
Dined on 12/20/2013
Better than expected. Food was 4
star, service was 4 star, view was 5 star and drinks were 4 star. Highly recommend this place to anyone!!! Would go back in a second. 2nd best restaurant on the island"

The food was interesting and very
good. The wait staff was knowledgeable about the menu and wine pairings. We had a very nice evening eating, drinking and relaxing."

What a wonderful way to kill time
between engagements. Reserve yourselves a lounge, sit back and relax. Sip on some wonderful cocktails and enjoy attentive service. We will definitely be back for more."

We came here for restaurant week.
And ordered the special they were offering. The lobster appetizer was very good. I had the New York steak butter yaki. Delicious ! My friend had the catch of the day, That was very good too. Followed by chocolate fondue yummy !!! Nice staff, Great service. I would definitely come back here. It was a nice experience."

Aloha from beautiful WIkiki. When
in O'ahu next please plan a stop at the Trump Tower to their Wai'lou Ocean View Lounge. You do not need to be a hotel guest to enjoy this delightful spot on the 6th floor. View of the sunset was phenominal we had their fish and chips with house made tartar sauce. Huge portion of delicately fried fish and their fries were the best I have had on the island.Our server Alyshea was a star and set the level of service pretty high."

Forget about the Trump stigma, the
fish was amazing."

We had a table for two with an
outstanding view of the city and beaches of Waikiki. The lighting in the restaurant was subdued. The noise level was low to moderate. There was a guitarist and vocalist providing live background music. The small plate dishes were delicious and expertly prepared. The restaurant was only about half full and our service was excellent. We enjoyed our dining experience a great deal and would recommend this restaurant."
Dined on 11/6/2013
We had already dined at some great
places, most of those crazy busy in Waikiki. The Wai'olu was a welcome change. Pretty much like relaxing at home and bring waited on. The 3 of us shared a dining/couch area as well as delicious small plates and very nice wine. The open air and gorgeous view adds to the experience. The service was impeccable and friendly."

Service was off the charts,
Michael was great and so was our female server whose name, regretably, I cannot remember...but she was also outstanding. Nice wine goblets with ample pour, reasonable portions to the usual pupus. A gracious and relaxing atmosphere."

Food, service and view were all
great! Would definitely go back in a heartbeat!"

When making a reservation on open
table I requested lounge type seating. The girl checking us in said none were available and it was not on the request from open table. Since no one was in the place and after a few minutes of explanation she sat us where I requested. She made it clear it was not on open table and that we would need to leave by 7:30 since the area was reserved by another party. Since it was only 5pm I let her know that was not going to be a problem. I have been there many times with the same request placed on open table and have never had this problem before"

They serrved our draft beer with
no bubbles on it.The machine was broken. They told us about it when we asked another glasses. Foodies are not so bad, but one dish was too salty and one dish was too sweet for us."

As an older couple we were not
impressed by the food or drink provided. Definitely geared for a younger, more with-it crowd - who seemed to be having a great time."
Dined on 7/6/2013
We had a very pleasant experience
dining in this place for the first time. Its seatings were very comfortable and relaxing. Foods were great , and the view was fantastic. Overall, we had a marvelous time, and definitely will go there again to entertain friends in the future."

We visited there first time and
enjoyed food. Ambience is good also. First saver was good, she check us all the time but next saver was not so good. We were wait to order next drink and he did included tip already when we were check out. We are kama'aina and we'd like to decided tip."

A hidden gem. Located in Trump
hotel ( on Saratoga) in Waikiki. Validated valet parking, take elevators to the 6 th floor. Great sunset view. Happy hour prices and menu are fabulous. Nice place to unwind. Highly recommend! Staff is very attentive."

The gave us little flashlights to
read the menu. Worst lighting ever in a swanky restaurant. Food was good, not great. With so many other options in Honolulu, go somewhere else. "The Donald" is the winner here. Kevin"

Came across Wai'olu our last night
in Hawaii and it was the perfect way to wind down the trip. Incredible service in a truly unique, open-air setting with a fantastic view of vibrant downtown Waikiki. Good not have been more satisfied with our entire experience."

We had a table on the balcony with
great views of the fireworks. Everything we had was delicious. The amuse buche was a shrimp ceviche. It was so good that we ordered a second one. We also really liked the kal-bi beef, fire cracker rolls. Service was great and they were great with our party of 6."
Dined on 1/25/2013
Ordered 6 dishes (tapas) and 3
were sub standard. The server (very good) removed one from the bill. The setting, service, and music was outstanding but the food quality needs attention."

Wai'olu is located in Trump Tower
in Waikiki. Elegant surroundings, and a great view, although not straight on to the ocean. Beautiful sunset. WE had an array of appetizers - and half price for happy hour.What a surprise at a Trump property! Comfortable al fresco dining 0"
