Super attentive and the best rib eye I’ve ever had
Outstanding in all aspects...a special treat
Excellent service. All of the servers and back waiters were at tentative, very on top of it with refilling my water. Also, all of the food I ordered came out in a timely matter. I was very impressed with the service. My girlfriend said her surf and surf platter was outstanding. The crab and Shrimp were cooked excellent. It was a very much worth the money. I ordered the Tomahawk steak. It was tender, but lacked a bit flavor. The service and the fact my girlfriend was happy definitely made up for the steak tho. Overall had a great experience, bathrooms were stunning, valet and location was spot on, and I definitely would return.
For location there are few places with a better ambiance; however on the two occasions I have dined at 53 By The Sea I have been disappointed in the quality of the food. It is good but not as good as it should be for the venue and the price.
The food was excellent and very fresh tasting. We had a fantastic view of Diamond Head and the ocean and landscape. Our server was very helpful and attentive to our needs.
The 5 course menu was awesome. Food was awesome all around. The dessert cake at the end was kind of dry, like box made, but overall it was really good. A bit on the pricey side, but for the occasion (Valentine's Day) it was a good time.
Another nice outing at this restaurant.
We had a lovely Valentine's Day lunch. Food was excellent and so was the service.
The ambience, food and service was excellent. My table is facing the ocean so it makes the dinner more enjoyable. The valet parking was impressive. The driver remembered my car and ran to get it as soon as he saw me. Overall thumbs up, definitely will be coming back.
Food was delicious but it was the dessert that made me enjoy the whole night. Best Raspberry Mousse I’ve ever had.
This is a lovely place in a beautiful setting with excellent food and service. We saw it from a boat we rented and it's just as appealing from the outside as inside. Definitely a memorable meal in Honolulu.
We had a great time for my girlfriends birthday and pre concert dinner. The view was awesome and the food was good. Great service. Enjoyed it.
53 by the Sea exceeded by expectations. My husband & I celebrated our anniversary here for an early lunch due to very busy schedules (the 1000 point bonus was a big plus too) & enjoyed the experience.
For appetizer, we selected the ahi kataifi roll which was delicious. My selection: seared scallops & mixed berry affogato...both very good & portion size of the dessert was huge. My husband selected the 3 course meal, which was more than reasonably priced at $38 & included a Chef's trio for appetizer, he opted for the catch of the day, & coconut panna cotta. I can't remember specifically what was included in the appetizer except for shrimp, a carpaccio of some kind, and a watercress wrapped thin beef. He said the shrimp was ok but the carpaccio & beef both really good. The fish was a white meat deep sea fish & came as a very generous portion. He also liked the panna cotta, which was light & served with fresh fruit. The restaurant also served a complimentary strawberry shortcake for our anniversary, which was a very nice gesture.
Service was spot on from beginning to end & every one was attentive & courteous. We would definitely dine there again, perhaps for dinner in the the future.
View, food and service impressed my clients. Their "new favorite restaurant ".
Impeccable service with awesome ocean and Diamond Head views!
3 course lunch was great - the fish option was delicious and light.

Took my daughter here for her 16th birthday just father and daughter dinner...I had an excellent experience my waiter was awesome...I needed a strong drink...I got one...lol...for dinner we started off with the chilled seafood showcase...nice presentation...then ordered the tomahawk steak...slight miss communication and only had one on order...but I wasn't disappointed...had dessert....and a complimentary dessert for the birthday girl....I was hesitant to go...because of friends with bad experience here....but all in all...our experience was awesome...we coming agian...
In Hawaii for our 41st wedding anniversary and thought we had found a lovely, romantic restaurant. The hostess knew it was our anniversary and I guess she thought sitting next to one another on a bench was romantic. She put us at a table where we both faced the window rather than one another. My view was actually a pillar. I would much rather have looked at my lovely wife. The worst thing was that there were large families with little kids on each side of us. Between babies crying and 5 yr olds playing games on their cell phones, any romance bit the dust early.
Forget the dress code. I had a dress shirt, tie and sport coat but the two fathers next to us had t-shirts on.
The food was good and well prepared. The service attentive though oblivious to our conditions. Not a restaurant I’ll return to and I suggest you look elsewhere unless you enjoy the ambience of IHOP.
Great ambience and wonderful service but food was just ok. Ordered both $100 & $150 tasting menu. If you're an avid seafood/steak upscale diner than it might not be up to par, with what you're normally used to. Other than that, ok overall.
Amazing night! Food was awesome! I loved the choices for scotch and all that.
Ordered the surf and surf...shrimps were tough....everyone else's food was excellent.
Fantastic waiter, Joshua. Entire staff was very attentive.
Great as always
Went for my boyfriend's birthday - staff very friendly and all wished him a happy birthday, came with a complementary cake as well!
We came in and celebrated my Retirement.
I did the Chef Degustation+ Wine Pairing , and Lehua the Tasting Menu.
Matt was our Server

Great menu, outstanding staff. a very special moment in time.
