The food is way overpriced for what you get. They say they have classic deli sandwiches but these are a far cry from a real ny deli sandwich

Restaurant was very loud when we went for dinner I reserved aable for 11 as we were on holidays with family and decided to get together for a rare supper. They split us up in two separate tables so we couldn't visit. I had a salad with chicken -it was raw. No one even offered to not charge me or replace it-I had to tell them I not paying for it. Not impressed

An unexpected Italian / deli experience in a very touristy area. Pastrami on rye was done correctly with a little fatty pastrami (required for taste and moisture) on white rye with yellow mustard and a pickle. Pasta looked pretty good! Prices a little high, but hey, this is in Waikiki. Service was great.

We have been dining here since they opened. We love their pastrami reubins. They are big enough to share.
This visit the fries were not up to their normal standards. They were overcooked and had lots of small end pieces.

I found this restaurant to be disappointing. I had read the menu ahead and was excited to order the macadamia nut/coconut pancakes. The server informed me they had no sugar-free syrup which I find odd for a restaurant. I was offered honey or fruit, but both contain high amounts of sugar. I had a side of eggs instead. My family ordered an omelet which was mediocre in taste and bacon and eggs. My daughter did not receive hash browns and the server did not ensure she completed her order by asking for all the side orders. We were heading off on a tour and did not want to wait for additional food to be cooked. Our server did not come around often, and the offer of coffee was not made although I finally asked for it. The restaurant was not busy. Even with a 10% discount, we will not be back.

The waitress was outstanding, very friendly and accommodating. Food is always good. The only thing that was no up to par was the wait when we first got there. I had made an Open Table reservation and we were there on time. Still had to wait a while because the hostess was on the phone the whole time. A waiter came to assist us, but when I told him I made the reservation on Open Table, he said we had to wait for the hostess. We waited a few minutes longer, then finally someone else seated us. Hostess was still on the phone.

Overall a solid stand-by restaurant for Waikiki; relatively easy to get in on a week night and prices are reasonable. I had the Pastrami Hamburger. Unfortunately, like most places in Honolulu, the burger wasn't cooked to my order (medium rare). Last time I order a burger! Even the Loco Moco burger (previous trip) was over cooked. Next time, no burger!

家族でのランチで行きました。日本語のメニューがあり、わかりやすかったです。ピザを注文しましたが、2人でも一番小さなサイズでよかった。
ボリュームがあるので、品数は、少なめにオーダーしてシェアするのが、日本人には良さそうです。

The pastrami reubens are to die for, the serving sizes are generous and we have always liked the relaxed friendly atmosphere. The pizza and pasta are delicious too. In this pocket of Waikiki, the food here is much better than Yardhouse or PF Changs.

Offered to replace repeat of side dish, although was not done. Once brought to staff's attention, immediately replaced. Overall experience was great, regardless!

Food was great, hence the 4 for that. Service; however, was non-existent. Saturday night in Waikiki. I get it. Nearly 24 hours later I'm still not sure who our server really was. Had to send up a flare to get served and order. No offer for refills entire meal. No offer for condiments during meal. Had to ask for check or might still be there. Overall, a 2 because the food was good and some of the staff tried to save the night. But it came off more like butt covering than an explanation.
