    Food was wonderful, service was even better. From viewing the pictures online, I came in worried we wouldn't have enough food for the price. I was very surprised and excited for our awesome meal. Lots of tourists, so make reservations.

    家族で、お得なハッピーアワーの時間帯に予約をいたしました。 入店しましたら、先に4組ほどおまちでしたが、予約であると伝えると、バーカウンターではなく、バーカウンターの背面にある4人かけのテーブルでお食事をいただくことが出来ました。 お店の型の計らいに感謝です 2×2じゃ寂しいものねとウインク 本来ならば、バーカウンターだと思っていただけに、子どもがいたので配慮がありがたかったです。 お料理も、ランチのコースのお肉赤みでもおいしく、そして量も多く、最後のデザートを残してしまいそうだったので、持ち帰りにしました→こちらも小さい2ピースを大きな1ピースにしたよ!と かえって見てみると、帰り道に寄ったチーズケーキファクトリーのケーキと並べても、こっちのが大きい?ってくらいでした。 全体的に、日本人型が多いなと言う印象を受けます 子どもを連れていてもランチならばOK?じゃないでしょうか? 夜は、バーカウンターで相談しながらお酒のオーダーもいいかもです

    It wasn't my first time eating here. Their service was always good until last week. The person at the front desk was extremely rude!!! I figured she was new because she didn't know what to do. We asked a few questions about their happy-hour. We wanted to know if person in a wheel chair could use the table by the bar with happy-hour menu. We fully understand if they could accommodate a wheel chair, BUT she did not have to have that attitude!! "Can you tell me how the wheel chair person can sit at the bar?? Our happy-hour menu is just for the bar counter table." I really hope she gets the right training for better service. I feel bad for giving a bad review, but she really ruined our lunch. Everyone else was nice- our waiters.

    We had a 5:00pm reservation. The place was jammed packed. Waiting was a chaotic mess. Hostesses were overwhelmed and not very friendly. Was seated 15 minutes after our reservation time. Wasn't a great start. Thankfully, things improved dramatically. The wait staff were excellent, very friendly and accommodating. We ordered our appetizers and upon completing them ordered our entrees. As crowded as it was outside, we were not rushed and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We enjoyed the crab cake and bacon slab appetizers and then shared the steak for two and our two sides. They knew it was my friend's birthday and the waitstaff came out with a piece of cheesecake and sang happy birthday. Extremely popular with Japanese tourists.

    We visited the restaurant for dinner with expectation for enjoying good food and good ambiance because of Wolfgang. Service and food were good enough. However, it was so noisy and attire of many customers were not suitable for such level of restaurant for dinner. It was similar to sport bar. I do not recommend the people who expect ambiance of restaurant for good steak and wine by paying such price.

    I have had average experiences here before. I wouldn't have come again, but out-of-town guests wanted to come here. Our waiter gave terrible service. He seemed irritated when we asked him for things. The waiter assisting him was better, but couldn't make up for the main waiter's attitude. I will not come again even if guests request here. I should have known better.

    The food in this restaurant in overall are very good. We had crab cakes, onion and tomato salad, cream spinach, German potato, and Steak. All of the them were excellent. They have extensive wine list, some affordable ones and premium ones. Waiters are friendly and we enjoyed the meal very much. One concern about this restaurant is the waiting time to be seated. We had reservation on 16:45, but we had to wait about 20 min before being seated.

    I went to Wolfgang's steak house in Honolulu in Oct 2014 togather with my parents. Although I reserved our seat at 7:15 pm from website, we could take a seat after 20 min. What I felt complained is that there was no waiting seat and we had to stand in front of restaurant. I saw many people were waiting near here. To confirm my check-in, I also did on the same line as people making reservation in this time. The location and quality of food are good, but compared to other similar steak house averaged price is expensive. Total quality including service is not reasonable for my payment. Table service is average, but after appetizer, the main dish was so much delayed. I will not recommend this restarant to other people.

    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.

    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!

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.
