Love 12th Ave Grill!! We had wonderful service and a delightful meal.
Highly recommended for carnivores.
One of our favorite restaurants on Oahu, 12th Ave always delivers great food and service. Go!
Menu is very eclectic, which we like. However, to me, the meat was way over-seasoned to the point that you couldn't enjoy the taste of the meat. I got the ribeye and couldn't really appreciate the meat itself because of the glaze/sauce which overpowered any taste coming from the beef. Also, my husband ordered what we thought was a Porterhouse, and it came out as pork. Apparently it is a "Porkerhouse"??? The waiter should have clarified this when we ordered it, as it was also not clear on the menu that this was pork and not beef.
great service, great food, very fun place to go with family and friends
It was a very busy Sunday night but our server and other staff took very good care of our party. Food was delicious and portions very generous. Complimentary guava bread pudding for a belated birthday celebration was a nice touch (candle and all!)
Tony was excellent. Great explaining and experience. Well recommend. Great food. And my date made it all the more special.
Family style Sunday fried chicken was very fun!
Excellent food and service.
Parking was such a nightmare we were not happy when we finally got in. Food was good, service was fine, noise level was high and wine by the glass was very expensive.
When my wife and I moved to Hawaii six years ago there was only one restaurant that we could consider on the level of the great Williamsburg/ Greenpoint Brooklyn restaurants and that was Restaurant Town. It still is in our top five. 12st is truly the only true restaurant on Oahu that fits the above category. Relocate it to NYC and you would find it very difficult getting a reservation. Last night we could have gone for any of their always daily specials but we opted for our go to Shwarma Spiced Ni`ihau Lamb Shank Roasted pepper couscous, preserved lemon, pickled shallot & fresh herbs with house made yogurt. Just had to have it. We then also shared an Ahi Poke with more of a Tahitian twist. No matter what you chose you honestly will have a ver exciting dinner. Being former Wine Educators we marvel in their extensive temperature controlled wine menu. Rick Lily, the restaurants wine specialist is one of the two best in all of Hawaii. Forget about all the hoopla about wine soms etc. , Rick and Chuck Bussler from Restaurant Fete know Wine and are passionate about Wine as we are. There is no pompousness when it comes to Wine. They KNOW their wine.
Hat uns sehr lecker geschmeckt. Abseits von den Touristenmassen kann man das Restaurant wärmstens weiterempfehlen. Schneller, freundlicher Service. Parken ist kostenpflichtig. Wenn wir Mal wieder da sind, sehr gerne wieder.
Yummy food (ribeye was delicious!) and nice, friendly servers. Like that they source locally when possible.
Took out friends from San Francisco on their last diner in Hawaii. They loved the food (and the fact that almost all of it was local) and the service.
Best place they’ve been to while on vacation on Oahu. Highly recommend their pork chop (Maui) and Hokkaido Scallops (Japan).
Amazing food! A little cold inside!
I have never been disappointed at 12th Avenue. The wait staff is friendly and professional. I never have to ask for anything. They do not hover. The experience is one of the best in Honolulu.
We had a spur-of-the-moment dinner with two good friends. We were able to find a table at a reasonable time (surprise) and had a delicious and delightful time. The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive (despite being extremely busy). The entrees and main courses (Opah, scallops, pork) were extremely tasty and well-presented. The wind was excellent. And no one hassled us about staying a long time.
12th Street Grill was recommended by my stepmom and it didn’t disappoint. We reserved a table online and it was just a few minutes before we were seated, when we arrived. Wait staff was attentive and manager stopped by for friendly conversation. Menu was creative and delicious. Great drink list to support the food. Would definitely return!!
After wonderful dinner with outstanding service a week prior, my out of town visitors asked to return to 12th Ave. Grill for another dinner. Sadly, our experience on Friday, 3/23, was disappointing, primarily due to the service. Our waiter was, at best, disinterested, and seemed to be mostly concerned with getting us out the door as quickly as possible. We felt rushed throughout the meal. The meal was fine, although I had to send my steak back as it was undercooked. This is the first time I have felt disappointed at 12th Ave Grill, having dined there a number of times in the past year, so I will chalk it up to a waiter who was having a bad day.
!2th Ave Grill is one of my favorite restaurants.
The food is delicious and the wait staff is so friendly.
I love the Lemon Ginger Mint cocktail.
I highly recommend this restaurant.
3年前にも来店したが、今回もとても美味しかった。特に、Macaroni and Cheeseは絶品。
Our meals were wonderful and cocktails were amazing! Love this restaurant and always leave wondering why I don't go more often.
Our friends from Japan, who go to any great restaurants in Japan and in Hawaii were very impressed with your tasty and fashionable menus. We really enjoyed the great food and great local flavored food in your menu.
However after the meal, we ordered coffee and coffee was not very fresh. not even warm enough. That spoiled the entire meal to me. May be milk was too cold. When I serve tea, I will keep the milk in room temperature so, tea does not get too cold. to do so, warm up the milk jug and poor the cold milk in it, that is the secret.

Always enjoy my Dinners at 12th ave Grill. Service and food are always on point
We were looking forward to having dinner at the 12th Avenue Grill as we hadn't been there since they had moved quite a while ago. It was very noisy and we had a terrible time trying to hear one another. I have a gluten sensitivity and there was next to nothing for me. I asked about gluten free choices and was told quite curtly that they didn't offer that. In addition, the wine prices were extremely high. We will not be returning.
Steak was burned on the outside and raw in the middle. Cheap cut of steak. Duck portion was small. Dinning was crowded. Six inches from the other table.
Really love this place. They have a great happy hour.
True perfection in all aspects. I have been going to restaurants in Honolulu for over forty years. This restaurant has risen to the top of my list.
We had the pork chops and the Valentine Day special. Both were absolutely exquisite.
The service was awful. Very slow and obnoxious. Left our drinks sitting at the bar so long they were watered down. Food very salty and lacking flavor
Nice but food is over rated. For a grill really expensive, even for Hawaii. Cook your own rib eye on your grill at home. It will be better.
Sunday night dinner was superb. Our first time there but felt like Home.
Jidori Chicken and Duck Confit were delicious!
Great service by staff. Thank you!
The service provided by Rae was awesome!
My wife is vegetarian and enjoyed the salad with beets and the fresh baked bread.
I enjoyed the lamb shank as it was tasty and tender.
My wife tried the pasta side dish and didn’t enjoy it as it was just pasta and butter. Rae was quick to address our concerns.
Thank you for a really nice experience!
Very nice restaurant. our server was knowledgeable, friendly and funny. He was there but did not hover. The food is quite good. However, it is a little pricey.
This is good place to go for that "special" meal out (anniversary, birthday.) I'm told that happy hour during the week features reduced prices early in the evening. If that's the case,make a beeline for that because the food is good.
I had first been to the 12th ave grill several years ago. I am very glad that it is still there, and glad that they have expanded.
I had the lamb shank and it was AMAZING. everyone in my party enjoyed their food.
The server was friendly and efficient.
This is definitely on my list of places to visit each time I'm on the island.
Excellent food. Sunday dinner special $32 is 3 course, great buy. Lots of easy reasonable parking in lot behind. Loved Brussels sprout salad and smoked ahi bruschetta. Wide selection of small plates to share. Something for everyone.
This restaurant never fails. For a night of drinks and pupu's or a dinner with friends. The service is excellent, and the food is always top notch. I would suggest making reservations for more than 2 people, then you are seated promptly and have room to enjoy your night . The drinks and bartenders are amazing and the happy hour menu's is the best!
We had a business dinner with Five people. The variety of food choices was perfect and everyone raves about their dinners. We had a really enjoyable time.
Loved the freshness and uniqueness of the food! Our service was excellent! Can't wait to go back.
