Our meals were wonderful and cocktails were amazing! Love this restaurant and always leave wondering why I don't go more often.

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.

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.

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!
