12th Ave. Grill Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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!
Visited Hawaii for Anniversary.
Went to bar before being seated. Bartenders were very nice. Enjoyed and recommend selection fro house drink drink menu.
duck confit appetizer and roasted rabbit leg was excellent.
Entree was served while just finishing appetizer. Felt rushed by service and told them to slow down.
Desert was on the house for Anniversary.
Overall - very good and would return. Just ask waiter not to rush.
NYE dinner was fabulous! Our table was ready promptly at 7 pm and our waiter immediately came over with water. He was fun, attentive and professional. He made several recommendations, one of which was a wine pairing for my main course and it was a winner! We had the pear salad, tako, and the lamp chops and pheasant special. Everything was prepared perfectly, looked delightful and was so flavorful. We both had dessert which was also yummy! Can’t believe we forget about this place. It was truly an exceptional experience! Fabrice our waiter was outstanding!
Sunday Supper has always been a favorite of ours. For a great meal like the one Mother cooked as a favorite for one of us comes to mind. When I think of meals we have enjoyed @ 12 ave Grill they are among the very best I’ve injoyed of that Itam anywhere!
Bon appétit ,

We treated our good friends from California to dinner at your place and all enjoyed excellent food. The service was impeccable. Good menu choices, generous drinks were a plus. My only complaint is the restaurant is a bit noisy. I certainly will recommend the 12th Street Grill.
Another tour d’ force. As the song says, “ getting better all the time” and that’s totally true here. Awesome waitstaff, superb wine list and a group of the best mixologists around. I can’t count how many time I’ve had dinner here over the past 5 years. At least twice a month. We’ve tried basically every dish but their specials are a must. We started with a special of what the chef calls a Ravioli stuffed with shredded beef in a curry like vindaloo sauce. We felt it was more like an amazing dumpling or empanada. Next came a Shwarma Spiced Ni`ihau Lamb Shank Roasted pepper couscous, preserved lemon, pickled shallot & fresh herbs with house made yogurt which was so complex and multi national. The Lamb just fell off the bone. The other special main dish was an Ahi cooked super rare and I can’t remember all the ingredients that went into it, sorry. Oh, there was roasted summer squash and orzo. A not too shabby Bandol Rose Tempier. Possibly the best rose in the world.
We had a great family holiday dinner/get together as son and girlfriend from mainland joined us for a very nice meal . Server (Corey) was on it, informative, knowledgeable and appropriate; other staff help was timely and responsive...
Food was very good, especially rib eye, fish, and pork shank...Girlfriend is vegan, she was happy with her meal, salad, veggies, etc.
Hadn't been here since they moved, will definitely go again...
Great evening with good food and great service! We all had the ribeye this time but next time we'll try other entrees so we can taste and compare. Individual green salad was enough for 3 since we ordered so much. Loved the smoked ahi on bruschetta! Good idea to offer small or large plates.
