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.

新婚旅行の最終日に、サンセットを見ながらディナーをしたかったので予約しました。
事前に新婚旅行と伝えていたため、テラス席の1番ビーチに近い、サンセットを独り占めできる席にしていただきました。
トマホークステーキコースは素晴らしい内容でした。お肉は約1キロもある巨大なステーキでしたが、味は最高でした!
私達のため、ホテルからハネムーンスペシャルとしてコースのデザートとは別にもう一皿デザートプレートをいただきました。
とても満足できる内容でした。また行きたいです!

Lovely setting with a well thought out menu. Pricey but not so much by Waikiki standards. Very fine service, incredible setting and the food was delicious. I doubt there’s a dish they serve that would be a poor choice

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!

 (Calgary)·Dined on January 6, 2018

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...

フォアグラとホタテは、すごく美味しかったです。ただフィレステーキは固くて…………残念でした。次回はリブを食べようと思います。

The ambiance is very beautiful. That’s the only nice thing I have to say about this restaurant. Otherwise you pay premium prices for low quality food.
Choices for kids selection is aweful. Salmon, chicken wrap, 3oz steak, sushi. The 3oz steak is $21 for kids and doesn’t come with drink or dessert. Dessert was cookie and sorbet. The cookie was a thawed oatmeal raisin cookie. Which child likes oatmeal cookie? And thawed?!! I don’t mind thawed cookie but when I pay 21+6 drink + 7 dessert = 45 for a kids dinner, I expect freshly made cookies. The whole dinner is low quality food mascaraded as high end food to justify the lavish prices they charge. I done fine dining often and let me tell you that you are better off going to Ruby’s Tuesday than this imposter of a fine dining.

Food was excellent! Didn't expect to have such a delicious meal at a hotel restaurant. Did have to send back a Mai Tai because it seemed weak. It definitely came back with booze in it.

Did the shrimp cocktail, tako, crab cakes and poke for the appetizers, NY Strip for my entree and tiramisu and a guava ice cream with strawberries (don't know what it was called as it was suggested by the server but it was good). The desert was beyond amazing! All the food was amazing! I would go back.

I have eaten here several times and it is always nice. This last time I had an awesome Venison Wellington (deer was from NZ). Very tender and tasty. It was preceded with a delicious lobster bisque and their foie gras toast. I passed on dessert. The wine selection is excellent. The Belle Glos pinot paired great with the venison. My server Dillon was a true pro...good insights on the menu and attentive, friendly service.

Beautiful historic hotel with porch and patio seating overlooking the beach. The night we had dinner, there was a talented husband and wife singer/ukulele player who were both amazing. The music was very relaxing - they played traditional Hawaiian music accompanied by a hula dancer. The service at the restaurant was also exceptional. We ordered the ahi tuna and lamb entrees - they were both good, but very expensive (I believe the lamb was $65) We also ordered the octopus appetizer - it had a smokey flavor that did not appeal to either of us. However, it was plated beautifully! Overall, a lovely place for a special occasion or romantic date!
