We love the Moana and anticipated having our 40th anniversary dinner there. The ambiance of course is impeccable and our waiter was perfect in every way.
However, when our steaks arrived they were nothing but fat and gristle. I understand that the ribeye cut can have a bit more fat or marbling throughout but we could not find one cut that wasn’t tendon and tough. We’ve had steak at the Moana Beachhouse before and it was wonderful. To your credit we were only charged for our drinks, but that was little consolation for our anticipation for our anniversary. We were so disappointed.

Everything from the moment we stepped in was awesome. From the front desk, to our amazing waitress, to the person picking up our plates. Excellent service! Mahalo Beachhouse!

We had the Mothers day special. It was a shrimp appetizer which was good. Then a 14oz rib eye steak. It had about 8 ounces of fat on it and it was a lot of work to get around the fat. It sucked. The dessert was good. At 95 dollars each it was very disappointing. However, I did get a locals discount. I did tip our server 30 bucks because he was very good. If they change their menu to a full menu I may go back, but not for a rib eye steak.

Epic vintage Hawaii. The Moana is 120 years old and you can feel the history and heritage. The Beach House was outstanding, the food and service were superior. The place the moment makes it all the special and memorable.

We celebrated my 40th birthday here! We had two tables of seven and got in right away. The food was outstanding, the service was excellent and the view was amazing! The menu is a little expensive but it is worth it if you are celebrating a special occasion. Everyone had a wonderful time!

The dining experience, service, and ambience were all good. Three things that you should be aware of before you go because the experience does not match well with the online site: 1. The food choices are more limited, with only the 3- and 4-course dinners; the menu at the restaurant is through Safari, not a paper menu; the valet parking option does not really exist.

Rack of Lamb was phenomenal, steak was just okay, kampachi was alright. The “First Lady” cocktail was disappointing, desserts were decent.

Overall, we were somewhat underwhelmed with the flavors of some of the items.

Service was good, nice ambiance.

We showed up for dinner and we’re told that it was prix fix only and that was not mentioned at booking since I researched the dinner menu before. The service and ambiance were both great, just wished we didn’t have to adhere to the set menu since we had less choices and not a great value. Would still recommend as one of the best outdoor dining experiences.

It would be better with out the preset menus. Seemed very sterile and I’ve had better meals for a lot less money in HI. Or better meals for the same price and no set menu. Desert was forgettable.

Prefix meal. Appetizers and cocktails were excellent, ribeye flavor was good and perfectly prepared. Kampachi fish is a favorite but was just ok. Dessert was perfect in size and was enjoyed!
Service was excellent and we were well attended to throughout the evening. Views are outstanding! Would definitely return.

Perfect night. We were celebrating two birthdays, and they went out of their way to make the night special. Live music at the adjacent pool bar added to the ambience. Not only will we be back to the restaurant, we want to stay at the hotel next time.

Having stayed in the hotel many times over the past 30 years, we looked forward to dinner on the Veranda. This year I was disappointed in the food and the choices, do not like the pre-fix menu. Atmosphere unbeatable. Prices much higher than pre-COVID.
Beachhouse personnel outstanding. Yes, I will stay and try again on next visit.

We spent my husband’s birthday dinner there. Nice atmosphere with live band, sunset.
The server staff was very friendly and giving us the feeling of being taken care of.
They only have course menu, but volume was more than enough for us.

I wanna come back for lunch next time :)
