Long time friend get together
Great dining experience. Should have told us prior that the menu would be a fixed price menu due to Valentines Day. Service was exceptional.
Love the crab Benedict, our “go to” place for island friends and visitors. Love the beauty and relaxed Diamond Head location!
The venue is great with a view of the ocean that is stunning. The service is good, but when the restaurant is crowded, it is a little harder to get the attention of your wait staff.
The view was very good.
It's cold when the wind blows.
Requires a jacket.
We ate egg benedict and clam chowder.
It was savory and delicious.
I drank plantation ice tea and tropical ice tea.
I prefer plantation iced tea.
Waiter took a photo.
It was a good memory.
Hau Tree Lanai is lovely and the food is excellent. We did, though have poor service. Menus were slow to arrive. Many different wait staff all who seemed unsure of themselves and served poorly. For the price they need better trained wait staff.
Our server was not present. I was not told the specials nor that they were out of the opakaka. Our drinks took a very long time and while other tables received acknowledgement and apologizes we were not recognized until the bill was dropped and we were walking out the door. I was informed they were short staffed and I understand that but what was not ok was that other tables were informed and apologized to while our server seems as if he didn't even see us. I had to stack plates, and move items to be removed from the table. We were not checked on for quality of food or drinks. My coffee drink although removed from the bill was 30 minutes after dessert. I had asked for a non alcoholic beverage as well at the beginning of the dinner and was not given option but just brought fruit punch with soda water in it. If I had been told the option before hand I would not have gotten it for my daughter. Although I had not informed anyone at the restaurant it was my birthday as I'm a little shy this experience was the complete opposite of what a mother wants for her birthday. The food was good quality but the flavors were average. Nothing stood out as special. We live near by and had higher hopes and expectations of our experience. We will most likely not dine here again.
Hau Tree Lanai is the perfect restaurant to go and celebrate a birthday. The service was really good and friendly. The food and the view was perfect. We have found this experience to be the best.
The service was poor , ambience very pleasant and the food was satisfactory.
The Hau Tree Lanai is one of our favorite places for a romantic dinner or a get together with old friends. The food, service, and being at the beach for sundown can’t be beat.
Great breakfast menu, pancakes, eggs + lots of choices, all with local flavors. Beautiful setting on beach, cool sunny morning and polite, attentive service. Definitely return.
Best seafoot, very friendly service, great, newly renovated, location
Service was excellent. Everyone had fish that was outstanding. Waiter helped us with a sushi surprise instead of cake for the birthday celebrant.
It was so delicious!! It’s good for special night.
Small scenic beachfront dining great for sunset dinner.
Great ambiance! Great meal! Great sunset!
We love the Hau Tree Lanai. We have traveled throughout the world and this is still #1 with us.
We’d been looking forward to the re-opening following minor construction repairs. Our table was ready on time, and the dining area was just 1/3 full when we were seated, but quickly seated more diners. Our waiter would answer our questions but had little enthusiasm for any food or beverage items. He eventually took our drink order and promptly left us for the next 25 minutes. As you might imagine, it felt like a lot longer. When he appeared, it was to take our order and he had not noticed about the lack of drinks on the table. When they arrived, he hurried us through ordering our dinners so that there was no moment to enjoy the cocktails we’d been looking forward to. It felt like our dinner was to accommodate his time schedule, certainly not ours. The dinner was OK, not outstanding, and portions were nice. Also, my chair seat appeared dry but was squishy wet the longer I sat there. There was no point in changing chairs once I’d sat there, but it certainly didn’t help with the long wait for service. I was just eager for the dinner with good friends, that we’d been long looking forward to, to come to an end. Very disappointing.
Overall our experience was good. Great atmosphere. We asked to be moved from a table right under a tree because of small things falling from the tree onto the table, but that was to be expected. We also noticed that another table had to exchange a glass of wine because a bug had fallen into it. I had the catch of the day, opakapaka and it was a bit overcooked.
A great place for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner at the beach!
Delicious mochi pancakes & wonderful eggs Benedict 😋
Phenomenal food, excellent service. The best brunch I’ve ever had.
Peaceful and quiet and right on Kaimana beach!
Unmatched beach view of the sunset from under the hau trees.
The torches are lit around sunset creating a honeymoon paradise ambiance.
The service was extremely polite and attentive.
Amazing fresh, perfectly ripened pineapple, savory eggs and good coffee at breakfast.
There was not 30 seconds where my coffee was not topped off, without even asking.
Favorite breakfast in Waikiki. Amazing, peaceful setting. Been coming here for years and it really doesn’t change which is a good thing especially in Waikiki where everything is always changing. Food is good too, which is a bonus. Plan on spending at least $25 per person for breakfast but it’s worth it!
Went for my husbands 60th birthday dinner. I ordered the catch of the day which was Opakapaka. I ordered it steamed. It had a soy base for the sauce and it was delicious. My husband ordered the Filet and said it was very good. The service was great, and the atmosphere outstanding. Will come here from now on instead of Roy’s.
The view was amazing. Definitely a splurge meal and not big portions but it was good.
Absolutely outstanding experience. Great food. Great atmosphere. The best place on Honolulu for a romantic dinner. Can't say enough good things.
