The food and service was perfect. However I had made this reservation far in advance and requested a window seat since it was a special occasion. I arrived 15 minutes early and still did not receive the window seat. When I asked they said they had a large party coming and that's why I couldn't have a window seat. However I then watched as two of the window tables were seated with a party the same size as mine. Next special occasion I will seek a different restaurant that can fulfill my requests.

We had an outstanding dinner. Our server Kenny was the best. We al felt like fish, so what did we do, we went to a steakhouse, but it was worth it.

Don't waste your money.
Although we live within walking distance, we hadn't gone to Aloha in several years as our last visit had been very disappointing but my husband received a gift card so we decided to give them another try. We learned their mediocrity is consistent. The food is bland and was served cold. Overpriced dinners include just 1 side. Bread basket included 4 slices from tiny loaves, 2 white and 2 dark.
We made an early reservation as we were going to a movie afterward. When we arrived, the restaurant was nearly empty. They took us to a very dark table in the back. I asked if we could sit nearer the windows which run the length and width of the restaurant. I pointed to a particular table as an example. The sloppily-dressed and condescending manager refused saying all of those tables were reserved for diners arriving within the next 45 minutes. When we left 75 minutes later, several of those tables, including the particular one I had pointed to, still sat empty.

Super pleasant. We sure enjoyed our special Valentine's Day dinner. I had prime rib - a very infrequent treat - and it was probably the best I have ever enjoyed.

This is an interesting restaurant. The service was fantastic, the food was better than good, although not excellent. The problem with this place is that it needs a makeover. It feels like a 1970's coffee shop inside. I get they don't want to spend the money on a makeover because why would they, the place is really busy. But it needs it.

The prices were high for the quality of food. Plastic coated menu pages were incongruent with entrees >=$30. I got the feeling locals have been going there for years for special events, and haven't experienced true fine dining.

I think the prices are very high for what you get. Steaks are way over seasoned. The dining room was very loud as opposed to the bar area which was much quieter.

It’s nice that it’s on the water. Might be a good happy hour place not I would not go back for dinner again.

The atmosphere was relaxing. The service was great. Two of us had great food and two of us had very average not very tasteful food. Some entrees may need to be eliminated or tweeked. Example would be the crab stuffed roughy. I would eat here again and try a different entree.

I would strongly recommend Kenny’s filet mignon flambé with peppercorn au jus. Beautiful views, extraordinary staff, and top of the line steaks. My wife and I enjoyed the steaks, but the seafood dishes looked equally delicious.

Excellent food, perfect setting and great service. It wasn't very busy, so it was very quiet. But it has a very nice interior design that probably keeps down the noise. Our server was helpful and friendly. She made sure that our second glasses of wine came with the main dish.

OUR WAITER KENNY HAS GOT TO BE ONE OF THE BEST WAITERS WE HAVE EVER HAD( AND WE EAT OUT QUITE A LOT). HE WAS VERY PERSONABLE AND RECOMMENDED SOME GREAT MENU ITEMS AND WE ENDED UP ORDERING THE DESSERT HE RECOMMENDED. FOOD WAS PREPARED AS EXPECTED AND DID NOT DISAPPOINT. MY STEAK WAS COOKED TO EXACTLY HOW I LIKE IT. WE HAVE DINED THERE SEVERAL TIMES AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO.KEEP UP THE GOOD SERVICE

Hadn’t been there for a while, won’t be back for a long time! Service was SO, SO bad. Our server was very sweet but it took 25 mins to get our drink order in! They weren’t that busy! Kitchen was backed up (which isn’t servers fault). The manager spoke to 2 parties that were complaining and then he tried to avoid any eye contact with anyone else and was in the back.
I’m not trying to get freebies but at the very least they should have “comp’d” my martini for the horrible 2 hour experience!
