The place is located at the end of Waikiki which is quieter. Food was great except the chocolate lava cake that we ordered was not warm at all. View was great but they could trim the trees a little for better viewing.

They have a distinct time for lunch. It ends at 2pm so if you get there after 1:30, they are rushing you to order and ready to change shifts. Once you order it is more relaxed and you can lounge until 4.......i was really disappointed with the food. I don't mind paying more because of the view but the food was not as good as Zippys. They used iceburg lettuce with the caprese salad and the beef/pork patty with the locomoco was hard & crusty. The pink dragon smoothie was okay.......

Hau Tree Lanai was recommended to us by family who visits every couple years. It was a bit of an overcast morning when we arrived for breakfast, so I walked in feeling skeptical. However, I was happy to be quickly proven wrong.

The atmosphere was authentic and romantic (request beachfront seating!), and the food blew me away! I ordered the French Toast, and my husband had the Chicken Fried Rice. I’m secretly debating going back for breakfast tomorrow morning; this was one of our vacation food highlights in all of Honolulu!

Ocean seating, ocean view. Old Hawaiian style dining venue sitting under real Hau Trees as a canopy. Best eggs benedict for breakfast. Good place for special occasions and to bring out of town guests. You are literally sitting on the beach at Waikiki to enjoy a really great breakfast, lunch or dinner. This restaurant is our favorite special occasion place to have brunch. Excellent service. Make sure to make reservations. It's very popular.

Special Occasion: we live in Kaneohe. Our electricity was shut down due to a new pole being erected so we decided to have breakfast in town at the Best breakfast place on Oahu. It had poured cats and dogs about a half hour before we got to the restaurant. All of the tables by the railing overlooking the beach were dysfunctional due to too much water. The maitre d graciously explained the problem and quickly got us a dry table near the beach. The waitstaff as usual have the True Aloha Spirit and the food is delicious. We ordered the Half Hash one egg Benedict. Perfectly cooked and created eggs Benedict with the best hash you could imagine. What a great way to spend the time waiting for the electricity to come back on.

Have been going to this restaurant for years. Have dinner there at least once every time we come to Honolulu. Nice place, good service but this time food was not good. We had fish which was fresh but totally tasteless. We wonder if the usual chef has left or was off the night we went. Very pricey meal, usually worth it, but not this time. Would not recommend and will not go back any time soon.

We happened to dine at Hau Tree Lanai on a VERY windy evening. The staff had already moved the guests indoors. And though there was a little scramble to get tables in and accommodate guests it was done quickly and efficiently. Guests and staff were in the spirit of it and all went well. Kudos to the Maitre ‘de for stepping up and going beyond to keep everyone happy. A very enjoyable evening! Michelle and Brent

The Hau Tree Lanai is an amazing place to have a wonderful dinner. The staff was extremely attentive, the food was amazing, and the ambiance was great. The sound of the waves while eating delicious food was second to none. The staff even made it a point to help my daughter over her fear of trying something new. She ended up loving her food. All in all, it was a great experience.

This was a lovely spot to have dinner on the sand. This area of Waikiki is much quieter. The waitstaff was attentive but not overly present. We ate late so were able to get a table right near the sand. If you want to see the sunset, book early. The fish delicious, even by Hawaiian standards. Very romantic, quiet but with live guitar. A great last dinner in Honolulu.

Horrible service. No one cares if they wait on you there. We tried it four times this last week and it kept getting worse! The final straw was for our Sunday brunch with our very important local political figures, who were our guests. We were seated without any greeting and then were ignored for 25 minutes and finally had to ASK if we might place a drink order. Food took 45 more minutes to come and very unfriendly wait staff who are t all too old to be working in this busy place but act as if they are in some kind of a pointless hurry. Never again.
Go to Orchids instead for a superb dining experience in a lovely setting!
