This was hands down the best restaurant experience I have ever had, not just in Hawaii but throughout the major metro cities in the US mainland and internationally. The intimate dining room and professional service staff were simply outstanding. The food was beautifully presented, and gave us a sense of place, as the local provenance was highlighted by items such as Kona Kampachi and Molokai Venison. They also source global ingredients that offer the ultimate in luxury and quality like the Toriyama Wagyu from Gunma Japan. Chef Colin came out to check on the diners and we were so pleased to have a few minutes to speak with him. Just a wonderful experience from start to finish!

About the restaurant
Brick Fire Tavern is a Craft Pizza Restaurant, specializing in creating hand crafted Neapolitan Pizza paired with craft beer, select wines, and other hand crafted dishes. By definition, “craft” in the context of food refers to the expertise in making things by hand, and usually in limited quantities. With this as our core, we are dedicated to the art of creating combinations that work in harmony with each other. Our ingredients are homemade, and seasonal whenever possible, and our menu items are uniquely balanced and creative. Everything served from the kitchen has at least one element either cooked or finished in our wood fired brick oven. We have traditional pizzas, as well as our creative and unique pizza combinations which are both fun and fancy ways to use local and fresh ingredients.
