Beautiful setting and ambiance. The food is good, but for what you pay I expected significantly better. I guess my Midwest sensibilities do not align with the economics of food in Waikiki.
It was a rough go. They must have overbooked and sat us in the lower section and a beach table with umbrella which left little room for apps. Our server had too many tables. Took over 30 minutes to get our bottle of wine, steaks were just okay. I expect more when paying $500 for a dinner.
The Beach House was excellent from the table, the staff and of course the food.
The food was terrible. How do you mess up a steak?!?! Atmosphere was an A+ but the food was the quality I would expect at a 7/11 that spent the day in those roller things. Ruined our special 20 year anniversary evening as that was all we talked about.
Drinks were terrible and the meat was burned to a crisp.
Beautiful table outside on the veranda, with the added surprise of the Honolulu Festival Spectacular Fireworks show over Waikiki Beach. Amazing in every way! Mahalo🎉
We were disappointed in the choice of tables. We preferred to sit inside the restaurant but was told a party was reserving the entire restaurant. Well, as the evening went on, the party only took up 1/4 of the restaurant---just by the bar area. That was a great disappointment.
Service was also poor and food was mediocre. The NY steaks and rib eye steak were much better at Wolfgang or Morton's Steak Houses. I doubt we will be dining there for a long time to come.
Had a great evening-Maui soup was the best we’ve had in all the islands in over 15 years
Lovely evening. You were even able to accommodate gluten free options nicely. Thank you!!
Alles gut. Hatte nur das zu kleine Steak bestellt
Outstanding. Lobster bisque. Grilled ahi with mash and mixed vegetables. Excellent bread. Great service. Especially compared with Hula's Grill. Go here for sure.
Great atmosphere and service. Food was outstanding and I will come back again
This was our third visit to the restaurant. Everything was exceptional. The food and service were excellent. Very romantic table by the ocean for an anniversary celebration.
Onion soup was not up to the best standard. But the salmon misoyaki graze was quite good.
We went for a birthday celebration and we were extremely pleased with the restaurant. They seated us on the outdoor patio at one of the tables that was overlooking the beach and ocean. Absolutely stunning view. The food and service were both outstanding as well.
Beautiful view with great service
Please don’t miss this restaurant on Waikiki Beach! Great for celebrating special occasions! Most beautiful setting!
Had dinner here while on our honeymoon in Waikiki. The atmosphere of the restaurant is beautiful and romantic and on the beach. From 6-10 there is someone softly singing in the surrounding courtyard/banyan tree area. Service was outstanding and the food was excellent. They offer a 3 course dinner that includes appetizer with shrimp cocktail and small crab cake, 6pz filet and vegetable and 2 petite desserts for $85. Excellent value
Will definitely return here when we come back for our anniversary.
Lovely setting with a very good dinner time singer entertaining. Service was also very good. We opted for the loco moco tasting menu. The salad to start was very ordinary, nothing you couldn’t whip up at home in 2 minutes. The loco moco burger was perfectly done, but unfortunately way underseasoned, to the point of being almost flavorless. The foie served with it, nicely seared. Panna Cotta dessert nice, but $59 dollars worth.....perhaps not.
Incredible evening for our 30th Anniversary!! Great food great service and a Hawaiian sunset. Doesn’t get better than than that! Had to come back after our 25th and they didn’t disappoint. Matt the waiter was fantastic!!
Nice location on balcony overlooking Banyan tree, but food quality was only average for a restaurant at this price range. Bit noisier than expected because of entertainment at Beach Bar adjacent. Azure at Royal Hawaiian next door is much better food and quieter.
Great food -recommend the chicken Caesar salad and tempura asparagus!
Service poor -waiter took our plate away while we were still eating!!!
The experience was quite enjoyable until the tab came. We wanted to leave a 20% tip but we used a gift certificate which also add an additional fee. That left a downer feeling.
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!
Great restaurant on the water, very polished. Comfortable but classy.
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.
What a beautiful view from the veranda. The ocean. The sunset. Gorgeous. The food and service were great..
Fantastic food. surprisingly big portions. Nice live.music.
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.
Wonderful night and meal outside watching the ocean and sitting near the banyan tree. We ate appetizers, salads, and the Maui onion soup...all were delicious. The Surfrider Mai tais were delicious too. Exquisite old hotel.
We had a wonderful dinner, food, location etc was great and our server Ricky made our experience even better. He was awesome. Thanks
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.
Excellent location and fantastic food. Hard to beat dining watching the sun set over the Pacific Ocean.
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.
This has been one of my favorite for years. Gotten a little to pricey, but the view is spectacular.
Service is always good. Meal for 2 with no alcoholic drinks $150.
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.
very good seafood, crab cakes, jumbo shrimp cocktail, and a delicious Cioppino.
I had a great experience in this beautiful spot. Love the food, linens and service.
Very romantic too.
Beautiful setting, great service, great food! A perfect spot while on vacation in Waikiki!
