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.

アワビ、海鮮サラダ、ポークチョップ、マカロニチーズを注文。
アワビは大きくてコリコリ。ポークチョップは私の苦手なシナモンが少し効いていて個人的には苦手な味でしたが、すべての料理において味付けが繊細で凝っていました。既製品のタレにどしゃっと付けて終わり、みたいな大味の料理は1つもありません。
雰囲気はカジュアルすぎずかしこまり過ぎない感じです。子供づれはいなかったので、大人がかしこまり過ぎずに創作料理を楽しむお店、というイメージです。日本人旅行客は自分がいた中では他に2組ほどでほとんどがローカル客。店員さんも愛想が良く、ついつい頼むか迷っていたマカロニチーズを頼んでしまいました。
ワイキキから離れているので車で向かう方も多いと思いますが、とにかく周辺の駐車場がこの夕食時間混んでいて空きがありません。
6時前に着いて約20分、駐車場の中をウロウロ。店の裏の駐車場は空きそうもないので、道を挟んで反対側のコイン式駐車場でたまたま目の前の車が移動しそうなのを見つけて駐車ができました。
次回ハワイに行く事があればまた訪問したいお店ですが、今度はタクシーなど

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.

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!

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!
