The food however, when I booked the reservation weeks prior I made note that it was for an elopement celebration & requested a table closest to the water. I also stopped by in person the day prior and spoke with (hotel) management to make sure my request was seen. The restaurant manager wasn’t in but called later and said they would have our table ready & greet us with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine (not necessary but a kind gesture).

When we arrived at 715 for our reservation, none of the prior arrangements were fulfilled. We actually had to wait at the bar until a table was ready & I watched as another couple was seated in the table I requested. Also, no complimentary beverage upon arrival as previously promised.

Once my husband brought the issue to managements attention, they did come to the table and apologize as well As present drinks & other gift shops items. Again, nice gesture but overall— pretty disappointed with how events unfolded.

Had a reservation for 7pm. Actually had to wait about 30 minutes to be seated. From that point on everything was wonderful. Drinks and food were delicious. The ambiance was the feel I was looking for. Sitting on the lanai at Moana Surfrider listening to live music while the historic banyan tree was a glow. Finished the evening with an espresso martini. If you are able to splurge then definitely check it out since it will cost you.

The environment was beautiful and very pleasant. The chairs were not the most comfortable. They offered a prefix dinner, a 3 course and a 4 course..the 3 was plenty. The short rib by far out did the steak - what everyone else at my table ordered. For dessert, don't let the cheesecake capture your interests. The chocolate mousse with Ganache was unbelievable and the mango passion mouse was tight up there, you begin with a taste of mango pudding and end with feeling like you're drinking the best mango juice ever.

We have been here before and loved it, but tonight they did not shine. Didn’t mind the prix fix menu but when something didn’t go right with an entree the recovery was less than expected. The Ahi Tar Tar was truly divine.

The service and ambience at the Beach House is always outstanding. The pre fixe menu leaves much to be desired. The prices in relation to the selection and portion size is disappointing. Overall, if you want to be reminded of being in Hawaii, this is the place to go. The sunsets are beautiful and the illuminated majestic banyan tree are magical. Keeps us coming back every year.

My husband and I were in from chicago, had seen your restaurant on tv- they had liked everything . We however both felt ill within an hour of leaving the restaurant. We called to let them know- never heard back. Food was ok- had we not gotten sick. Service fair - felt hurried- would have enjoyed a coffee and port with dessert. Never asked, check dropped. Dress code is obviously non existent, man in trunks with his date in a dress! Called back the following afternoon, the hotel didn’t seem to care we had gotten sick from them.

Be prepared! Fixed menu and over $100 per person. It’s fancy, so expect the small portions, and big price. It’s good for a SPECIAL occasion but not everyday dining.

Disappointed- fish entree with bones !
It started out well - We were seated towards the beach end , unfortunately the sun was bright and hot, there were no fans to cool the air. The ambiance is a lost as the tables overlook a very hectic pool beach scene. Not serene or even romantic in any way ! The food was as described tasting menu, small portions. I ordered the shrimp cocktail as an appetizer which is delicious, my entree was the hamachi fish -with lobster rice, tasty until I pulled out three fish bones, my appetite was ruined and I do d not finish my meal, when I brought to the attention of my server, he excused it as the new sous chef did not know how to clean fish ! I don’t recommend this place for dinner - there are other places to eat in Waikiki-

This place is awesome with classy beach vibes! We were lucky enough to be seated closest to the beach at sunset and watch the surfers. I ordered the pork chop for dinner — it was juicy and had this perfect crisp on the outside. Delicious! We even enjoyed the Hawaiian bread brought to the table with the pink sea salt butter. Simple but also delicious. Our server Calvin answered my husband’s questions about the fish he ordered. He also let us relax and enjoy the view with our drinks. We didn’t feel that we were being rushed out after eating our food which was nice. Overall, a great experience!

What a great place to eat! The food was delicious. We loved every course. The location is in a beautiful outdoor setting with a perfect view of the beach. There was live music entertainment that was perfect for the atmosphere. My husband and I could easily have a conversation and did not have to compete with the music, yet you had the background music creating the perfect island atmosphere. All of the staff were very friendly and on point. I can only imagine how challenging it is for them to comply with constant government mandate changes, but they did not show those stresses at all. This is a beautiful place with great food and I highly recommend you check it out.
