We always make it a point to dine at the Beachhouse at the Moana Surfrider each time we visit Honolulu. It never disappoints! Superb ambiance watching the sun set while listening to gentle Hawaiian music in an iconic setting. Our server, Carlo provided excellent, friendly service and, as always, the cuisine was excellent. An absolute must for your next visit to Waikiki!

I think the area below the main dining room has very pool side / casual furniture for the price point of this restaurant. The table bread was so, so hard - like rocks! - and most of the items that we chose off the menu needed seasoning. Server was very good but the food was not worth another visit at dinner.

The Beachhouse has an undeniably gorgeous view, but the food is not great. It is very overpriced for what it was ($14 for a poke starter that you could get at a similar quality across the street for half the price). Setting aside price, the food just wasn’t very creative/dynamic. The menu was very safe and offered seemingly generic items, which seemed far below what this restaurant could achieve. The food tasted good but just wasn’t great. Service was good, but it felt a little like chain restaurant treatment with a fine dining price list.

As always sitting on the veranda at the Beachhouse at sunset is a lovely experience. Our server Dylan was very proficient and knowledgable, and the food was served efficiently.
We had a Maui onion soup, shrimp cocktail and the short rib ragu. It was all very well presented and tasted good. There is a good selection of cocktails and desserts, too.

This was my special treat to myself, and probably will be my only fine dining during my time here. I had a reservation at 5:45pm and it was the perfect time to sit and watch the sunset, and the sailboats move gently in the wind. Speaking of wind, it was a very windy night and there wasn’t any on the patio. I ordered the Moana Classic with whiskey and it was overall one of the most lovely dinners I have ever had. Cant recommend enough.

My husband and I made a reservation for our 20th anniversary and it was one of the worst experiences we've had at what was supposed to be a nice restaurant. We consistently had to flag down our server to place our orders for drinks, appetizers, our meals and our check. The food was terrible, tasting like day-old seafood that someone left out for too long before remembering to prepare it. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

Great food, made the reservation two months prior to coming. I knew we would be coming here after I proposed to my partner on a hike earlier in the day andI told the restaurant of my plans. After dinner they surprised us with a congratulations cake and we were seated at a great table with a view of the sunset. Great time, thanks!

Me and my husband had the worst experience ever. We visited the restaurant to celebrate my birthday and honeymoon. Not once did our server ask if we are celebrating any occasion. And our server his name is Branden never once paid attention to us and I think it is due to we are young looking Asian. We felt racially profiled at that point because he never once ask us how we were doing or if we were enjoying our food. Instead an Asian bus boy was the only one that was actually serving us. We saw how our server checked up on everyone else especially on our table next to us who were “white race” but never checked up on us. Very disappointed in this restaurant at all. This was the very first time we felt discriminated. We do not recommend this restaurant. This ruined our last day for our honeymoon.

My husband surprised me with a date night at the Beachhouse and timed it right at sunset. It was absolutely perfect! The location/views are beautiful and the ambience is lovely! The food was superb! The crab cakes melt in your mouth, Hubby said the lamb was the best he has had in a long time and he loved the lobster fried rice. My lobster tail was perfect, salad greens were fresh and the carrot cake was delish! Our waiter was attentive, friendly and efficient.

I have been going to the Beachouse for several years. Will not go again until they improve their act. Their menue is horrible and overpriced. If you want a pathetic looking $55 6Oz steak, or three little shrimp in a $19 “shrimp coctail” this is the place for you. I will not waste another penny.

Historical hotel originally called Moans hotel, later bought by Westin. Recommend to make reservations ahead of time. Very friendly staffs. Great foods. Spectacle ocean view. An old tree in the middle which was there since 1920's when the hotel was first built.

I booked this dinner THREE months in advance and was VERY disappointed to be told we would have to wait (no time frame given) to sit on the verandah. The hostess was rude and spoiled the ambience from the outset. We were then led to a table that was placed over an air conditioning vent that was so cold staff were trying to block the air flow with a plank of wood. We asked to be moved and were then sat on a table in the middle of the room that had sofas as seats not ideal for dining.
Waitress was polite and accommodating, food and wine okay.
Overall this dinner did not live up to previous dining experiences and I walked away disappointed as this was our last night in Waikiki.

Selected this for my husband’s 40th bday. Food is great, quite pricey but I was expecting that given the quality of the food and the venue. Service on the other hand was horrible and not appropriate for the price. We waited every step of the meal, for our order to be taken, for my husband’s drink which was just from a bottle, for food tobe served - and then they failed to serve our side dish. We had to wait before we were able to call the attention of another waitstaff - and then when our waiter came to see us he didn’t even realize our order was incomplete (which would’ve been avoided if he checked on us after the food was served). We were at the end of our meal when the potatoes were served. And again it was a wait to get the check.
Again food was great, valet is efficient, and the lady who sat us is really nice. Our server however turned us off.

The food is great, but overpriced more than is reasonable. We were looking for high end for the Xmas holiday but this was just too much for what we received. Perhaps if the service was better we might have felt differently. One of our party ordered 2 appetizers-an app and as a meal, both came together. Our drinks never came. It was not worth the price.

The first time I visited the restaurant in 2017 it was a hit, I don't think that my wife and I have enjoyed a better time out before. Unfortunately, it wasn't the same this year, maybe because it was Christmas Eve, but it's hard to justify when there really wasn't that bad of a wait and we ended up as one of the last tables sitting by 10 pm.

To start we were seated promptly and there was live music in the background, one of the best parts of this location. The service was fair, less than what you would receive from a chain restaurant. It took an extended time for our waiter to come to see us for our order, bread and wine came about 30 minutes after we were seated, appetizers soon after. Then the long wait began. We watched as table after table received their dishes for an hour before ours arrived. Two of the four dishes were cold and the others - both steak - were cooked poorly with half the steak well done and the other half rare. Instead of sending the food back we suffered through as it would have been closing time before we received our food again. In total four dishes, a bottle of relatively cheap wine (about $55) and a dessert cost $500 with tip. In my mind, not worth it at all.

After speaking so highly about this location to friends I'm severely disappointed and will not return.

On vacation in Wakiki Beach, made reservations for dinner. Another Prix Fixe menu because it was Christmas Eve. The meal was average small portions relative to ordering off a menu. Loud due to holiday. Restaurant had an amazing view and a great Banyan Tree that was well over 100 years old, not to mention the hotel itself was quite beautiful. Wait staff very efficient and friendly, she took time to share with us about the hotel, tree and the area we were staying at. She made the experience. I have come to find I do not care for prix fixe menus and when I made reservations it was not mentioned as far as ordering for the evening.

We had reservations for Christmas Eve. though we have been here before for drinks this time we enjoyed a wonderful meal sitting on the veranda overlooking the beach and ocean. Both the service and food were excellent. The ambience was even better, the sunset was awesome and the live music was just made it all the better. We have decided to make this our Christmas Eve tradition.
