Beachhouse - Moana Surfrider Ratings and Reviews
We are here twice in 5 days, it was that enjoyable. The second time we couldn't get reservations but were accommodated after showing up early and waiting for no shows. The menu isn't huge, but the items are fantastic. "Southern porch" setting under a Banyon tree, with a beach. The hostess staff was fantastic as well as the wait staff. Can't wait to return next year!
Special dinner for DW's birthday. Everyone from the hostess to the waitstaff wished her a happy birthday and she got a free cake and gelato. The meal was excellent. We chose the tomahawk steak for two. Shared the ahi appetizer. Each had the onion soup and then they brought out the steak ; already cut for easy sharing with large sides of potato and veggies. We made it through all the meat and also the dessert sampler which came along with it. A real splurge but a wonderful meal.
Kind of a disappointment. The steaks were bland and needed alot of salt and seasoning. The lobster bisque was terrible- it tasted as if it were made with beef stock and wasn't creamy at all. The garlic diced potatoes were extremely dry and had no garlic taste. The service was slow- not "aloha pace" but rather the waiter seemed dazed every time he walked by our empty beer and wine glasses without asking if we wanted another drink. The restaurant definitely lost out on money as we were planning on having a few drinks each. Didn't even offer coffee or special after dinner drinks after our meal.
Moana Surfrider was another great find in Waikiki. This is our second time in Honolulu and we choose to eat here last night and couldn’t be more happy. We had the Moana Classic Tasting Menu. The Crab Cake was some of the we had ever tasted. Everything was wonderful!! Thank You Moana Surfrider.
Amazing the difference between this dinner and the one last week -- which we liked so much we went back. The same Cioppino (Seafood Stew) we raved about last week was so salty as to be inedible after a few bites. They did comp it, but still. Desserts were pretty good, but the service slow and the room, though beautiful, was way too cold. the porch was a much warmer and nicer temp.
We have been dining at the Beachhouse Moana for over 40 years. The setting and view is unequaled, the service is always perfect, and the food exceptional until this visit. Our fish was overcooked and over seasoned. Food was served warm not hot. Passable, but not up to past standards. Hopefully the kitchen can get back on track!
Very disappointed with the service. Waiter came over and put menus down - had to ask him to place a drink order. Bread basket came out late. New York steak was not tasty and somewhat tough. Waiter never came to ask how our dinner tasted. Have dined here every time in Honolulu - service and food were average to be generous with review. Beautiful setting that cannot be beat.
I wanted to take my wife to a romantic restaurant near the water to start 2018. I easily booked a 5:30 reservation for the same day, and boy, what a view! The hostess sat us at the table literally just feet from the edge of Waikiki beach on a glorious January evening. The sweet balmy winds blew gently thru the veranda as we enjoyed our dinner!
We started with the Mai Tais...very tasty as the sun went down. Kona abalone was our first appetizer...delicious, although I wish they were prepared in a way to appreciate the abalone a little more.
My wife had the lamb, I had the steak. My wife noticed a lot of other people ordered the lamb, and she said the crustiness of it was delightful. All the other diners who had lamb were eating it the same way as my wife...nibbling at the bone to get every last morsel of the crusty rub. My wife's Pinot Noir complimented the lamb perfectly.
My steak was cooked just right, and I had no problem devouring it! I stayed with a Mai Tai by choice, although in retrospect, a nice Cabernet might've been nice.
When we were leaving, we noticed the Moana has a little piano bar off to the side of the main lobby...We DEFINITELY will be returning to the Moana, either for a return to The Beachhouse or to hang out at the piano bar!
Inconsistent food, not commensurate with the price. My husband was served a cold $55 6oz filet, the Caesar salad was bland and ordinary. The scallop appetizer was perfectly cooked with an overly sweet cloying drizzle. The other salad was local and looked very good and apparently was. The Kampachi was tender and tasty and the other steak was just "good". The bill for 4 appetizers, 3 entrees, two Martinis, 3 glasses of wine and 2 regular coffees was $390 including tax and tip.
The room is lovely and I would go back for sunset for a drink and appetizer but not for dinner.
Hope that helps folks.
I had the ciopinni which was ok but not outstanding. No implements were provided to tackle the shell fish. The menu items all had a strong Asian influence but failed to offer a well prepared, simple, quality cuisine that allowed the flavour of the food th speak for itself. The staff were well informed and pleasant.
We dined here on the last night of our family vacation in Waikiki. We had a wonderful time having drinks and listening to the piano guy in the lobby. Once seated, our waiter was very pleasant and attentive. We LOVED the Maui onion soup. However, none of us (of 5) liked our entrees. (Kamachi, Chicken, Short Rib Ragu). Expensive disappointment.
Beginning to end dining experience was GREAT! However, initially as we walked to the hostess stand, she made no eye contact to greet us and was obviously overwhelmed with her job. In this kind of 5 star, high end restaurant, this is not acceptable. Didn’t feel welcomed at all, initially...
