    Who knew lunch could be more spectacular than dinner! Food quality, service, the skylight, a chilled dining room on a humid afternoon, surprised with delectable desserts...what more could we be blown away by and all by 2pm!

    This is my third time here at Wolfgang and the more I go, the less impressed I am with it. Considering the steak for two may be impressive the first time but has lost my interest since then. We chose not to use the steak sauce to enjoy the natural flavors but seemed as though it did needed some seasoning. Caesar salad dressing tasted as it was from a bottle (not freshly made there), bread was cold(unless it was supposed to be). The only good thing I have to say about this trip is that our food came out in a timely manner though the restaurant was packed! Perhaps I was so blown away with my first experience at Peter Leuger in New York that I was hoping Wolfgang would be comparable. I need to go back to Peter Leuger just to make sure.

    Try the 16oz Filet Mignon as it is huge yet cooked to perfection. The hostess station seems quite confused and we had to wait after our reservation time but once seated, we enjoyed great steaks and service. We wish they would use more a/c, but all in all was great.

    This is the best steak Oahu has to offer. First of all they dry age their beef in the back. The beef is tender and has a nice dry age flavor that enhance the normal flavor of steak. The service is outstanding. We go the lump crab cocktail. I was expecting a small portion of crab. Boy was I wrong. They gave us so much crab that I thought we were not going to be able to eat dinner. The sizzling Canadian Bacon was outstanding as always. The steak for 2 had a nice char on the outside, and was delicate and moist on the inside. The manager there Bill really knows how to take care of his guests and makes them feel more than just a customer. I hope to go back there soon!

    I've been wanting to try this restaurant for some time and was glad I got to visit. Food was superb, prices were fabulous only caveot would be the wait service just wasn't what I was expecting. Our waiter was good but needed just a little more finesse and then another waiter came over and was extremely helpful. Overall I did enjoy my experience at this restaurant and will be back again and again.

    Every year when we go to Hawaii, We always fly over to Oahu to go to Wolfgang's for bacon, lobster, steak and their great steak sauce and fresh mozzarella with tomato. We especially request Manny & Brandan to serve us. This week, we went twice to Wolfgang's and will go 2 more times in 2 weeks from now, before returning to New York, and have to wait till next year again.

When I made reservation, I asked as "My daughter's birthday. Could you prepare something to cerebrate." But no response. Actualy, no event in the restaurant.

    Going there on a Saturday night was a bit hectic. The restaurant was filled l and there were a moderate amount of oeople waiting for tables but having reservations, they say us promptly! Noise level was moderate as there were a fIr amount of large parties. Service was very good with a great waiter. He brought an extra appetizer for us to taste. That was a very nice touch. I had the filet mignon and I thought it was a bit on the dry side. My wife had the same opinion about her filet. My friend had the bone in NY strip which was excellent in texture, taste, moisture, and presentation. Salads were good and oysters were fresh. The cheesecake was from NY and was very good as well. It seems that the experience varies on what you pick in the menu
