12th Ave. Grill
I like this place, but the Osso Bucco Recipe is too heavy sauce.
We never thought we would say this but our absolute favorite Sunday Family Dinner which was Fried Chicken with its awesome compliments was actually beaten.
Last night we had their Shawarma grilled grass fed lamb souvlaki Rosemary flat bread, Hauula tomatoes, Kula onions, roasted olives, fried eggplant, roasted garlic hummus, tzatziki. Dessert is Baklava. Better then anything we’ve ever had in the Latin Quarter in Paris.
Very nice experience dining - service and food were great! Would have liked to see a meatless entree option. Calamari was the best! Scallops, chicken, seafood, and beef selections at our table were all very tasty.
We were so pleasantly surprised to find this place. We had gone years ago when they were in a small place and just assumed they had moved to an even smaller space. We were sure wrong. After navigating the parking lot, and entering a very large commercial building, we entered a warm, welcoming restaurant. The servers were very attentive and helpful. The noise level was fine. Everyone seemed to be enjoying the food and ambiance. Thank you to 12th Ave. Grill for a lovely evening.
Always delicious food here. Entrees are generous so becareful filling up with appetizers. You want dessert!
Everything we had was wonderful. Our friend is very particular, and she loved the osso buco; said it was one of the best she's had.
Truly great service and food. Wonderful cocktails. Small and large plates are both great for sharing.
Menu is always changing to make use of local products. Excellent dishes that are inventive but not
so unusual that they misfire.
The service was outstanding and the flavors of our dishes was unique and delightful! We are looking froward to dining there again!!
First what turned me off was that we had a reservation for 17:30 and an employee from the restaurant calls me to tell me that they are super busy tonight so we need to be done by 19:30 to have the table for another customer. I didn’t realize there was a time limit otherwise we would of reserved somewhere else. Second the server was weird and my husband had a gnat in his wine glass so my husband told him and the server said “what do you want me to get a spoon and scoop it out??” My husband said no I want a new glass so the server “says ok I will fill it up to where you drank.” I ordered the pipikaula well done and it was rare and my husband’s pork chop was pink inside! Food took long and the quality was not worth what they charged. We could of had a better meal at Highway Inn or even Zippy’s. The manager came over and apologized for the food being late, gave an appetizer of two pieces of bruschetta or something like it, I didn’t eat it, anyways he asked is there anything else and then turns away and talks to another customer that he apparently knew and we were dumbfounded. This was such a disappointing birthday dinner and I will never come here again!
The food was delicious as expected. I had the special of the day, Filet Mignon, and it was cooked
perfectly as I ordered. The waiter was very helpful in explaining the menu and did his best to keep us not waiting for the next course. The only thing that put us off about this restaurant is that we were told we had 1 1/2 hours to complete our meal and this was when they were trying to reconfirm our reservation which was about two hours before our reservation. If they had told us this when I had made the reservation, I would not have booked it.
All i can say is great! Flavor town!!! We will be back very soon.
Decent food but not as good as when they first opened at their original location. Flavors were just OK and is overpriced for what it is.
Great mother daughter dinner.
Very professional waithelp and great food. We all enjoyed our dinners.
12th Ave Grille met its high standards and our expectations. The monjong entree and the squash soup were both outstanding . Our first course choices -- the smoked ahi bruschetta and farmers market salad -- were fresh, flavorful and expertly seasoned. We were delighted with the whole experience.
The food, the service were great. Supports local agriculture! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely go back. Very good value as well. Highly recommend.
Staff was very accommodating, allowing us to move to a new table with lower noise level to help with my father’s difficult hearing. Much appreciated. Food was well prepared and waitstaff was friendly and knowledgeable.
Fried chix was good but a little salty. Is so buco was over cooked burnt and tough. Dessert wine and tomato salad were very good. Kevin was great.
The short "Manager" with glasses greeted us when we arrived. Unfortunately we arrived early and were subjected to a lecture on how they could not seat us, although the restaurant was half full and never filled. This guy was bleeding arrogance and self importance. My fish was overcooked, no care was taken in the cooking, getting our wine poured was a never, we did it ourselves.
I have been here before, and the only people in the restaurant that do not have their heads up there are the bartenders. The ONLY place to eat is at the bar, at least you do not feel like they are doing you a favour.
Arrogant restaurants will eventually fail, they always do, look at Town, no one needs an over-priced arrogant dining experience.
Had a fantastic post wedding reception dinner for out of town guests, including a family from Italy. To my was outstanding in his service as always. Everyone raved at the meal, surroundings and service.
12th Avenue Grill is one of our favorite restaurants. We love the food which is very tasty and you can get small plates which are delicious. The brussels sprout salad and macaroni and cheese are the best. They also have inventive and interesting entrees as well as really delicious desserts. The service is superb. We have had Tony for years and no one can tell you about specials better than he can. He makes you want to order everything because it all sounds so good. We had Ree for the first time the other night and she was also outstanding.
Personal service as if we were locals. The food was the type of experience which is tasteful and enticing at the same time. Go and have fun!!! We did.
Food was good, server was a little annoying with his comments.
Fantastic service and food! I would recommend 12th Ave. Grill to anyone who wants a great meal and be served like royalty.
Alaways amazing service , food and experience . Always a good idea for any occasion. These people always take are and prices are great !
Great food and impeccable service. Waiter was one of the best I have experienced. Plates came out with perfect timing. Best meal I had on Oahu.
Great food and service
This neighborhood gem never disappoints. Reliably tasty menu items and inventive daily additions make each experience memorable. The staff is highly attentive to your needs so conversations can continue without interrupting the service flow. It’s a hit!
Food was fine. Special fish meal was outstanding. Service was good. Food just came too quickly. Felt rushed.
I am a regular at this fine place. The food and service is always great!
It never disappoints. Bread was kind of stale, but we were hungry and ate it anyway! Please put a nice pinot grigio, not gris on your wine list
We enjoyed our meal, had a good table, and Nick is a great waiter. Lucky for us, we got a same-day reservation. Lamb osco bucco was wonderful, as we're the lamb burger, steak frittes, and the U10 scallops. Guava bread pudding was a great finish. I always get the lemon, ginger, and mint martini because it is perfect.
This place is awesome. From beginning to end the food and service was impeccable. We will definitely be back.
2 starters were fantastic . Smoked ahi and ahi tartare. However the other two below standards. Calamare soggy Brussels sprouts tasteless. Our waiter was very professional and pleasant. He deducted the calamare from the bill. In the past we always were super happy, the reason for us coming back. May Be it was a one off situation
Drinks were excellent. Deep fried avocado REALLY good. Lamb osso buco overdone. Fried chicken (and lamb) salty. Entrees came too quickly. We were comped the lamb and that was appreciated. Nice people. The strength seems to be the bar - very well done.
Always outstanding! One of our favorites for delicious comfort food
