As always we just love the Hau Tree Lanai. It's always wonderful to come here for breakfast and say hello to the staff who I've known for more years than I can even remember. Our server today was new and was a little slow to get up to par with the others we've gotten accustomed to but I'm sure he'll catch on. The food was ono as always and you can't beat the view.. We'll be back again soon!!

Out of the way, not worth it, food quality is super low, presentation same as Olive Garden, service is pretty good but can’t really feed on that, everything we’ve ordered we did NKT like steak, coarser salad, whole lobster, like how can u screw up steaming a lobster, well they did it!!! Desserts were pretty good but can’t make up for din. Basically avoid n try fancier places for same $.

This is a beautiful, small open-air restaurant just a little further than the aquarium so off the track a bit but not too far. Beautiful outside 'room' under a banyan tree (I think) with direct view of the beach and the ocean. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing which was excellent and not expensive by Honolulu standards. Friendly, if somewhat quixotic service but always attentive. Definitely our go-to spot in HL going forward!

Excellent service!
Matt did an exceptional job! I talked to him over the phone one week before the reservation.
As soon as we arrived (one week after) all the waiters and staff congratulated us on our wedding anniversary.
The Chef decorated our plate and the restaurant has a romantic ambience.
They made our night special.
Thank you so much!

This restaurant has the most beautiful and entertaining beach views of any place in Waikiki. I recommend going early and asking for a table next to the beach when you make a reservation. Their food is wonderful too. It's a great place to take out-of-town guests!

冷静に評価してこの店は良くない。おススメできない。私はたくさんの飲食店の経営者だったが、品質、サービス全てが良くないと断言できる。店舗の内観写真はあくまでイメージであり、料理は作り置きをオーダー後に皿に並べただけのもの。私達は朝食で、クラシックのベネディクトセットを1つと卵とベーコンとホールブレッドのセットを1つ、合計で51ドルぐらいだった。品質とサービス内容に照らし合わせると高すぎる。チップを払う気分ではなかった。

想像して欲しい。日本人観光客がどんどん入ってくるこの店では、欧米人から英語での批判がネットにほぼ晒されないので、品質とサービスが低下してゆくことを。。私達は、ランチやディナーを経験していないので、この店の全てを語る資格はないが、これだけ日本人だらけだと、前述の通りの結果になるのかもしれない。ちなみにエッグベネディクトなら、ワイキキ界隈で他にも美味しい店は沢山ある。天気の良い朝食でこの店に来たので、せめて、店員の笑顔は欲しかったが、笑顔も一切なかった。ハワイ、ホノルルでの素晴らしい朝食体験をお考えなら、この店は避けた方が良いです。

My first time here. I requested to sit by the beach side and it was granted. I can’t remember the name of our waiter but he’s really nice and very attentive. I love the view although we missed the sunset. I will definitely go back there with other friends and family. I always go out for dinner and this place now is one of my favorite spot. God job guys.

口コミ評判が良すぎる事と、混雑具合で足が向かずにいました。しかし、行ってみて納得。
とにかくエッグベネディクトは今までいくつか食べてきましたが、No.1です。
サービスが良くなかったと聞くことが多々ありましたが、私達は満足いくものでした。コーヒーサービスも良い具合できてくださりました。
お値段は、そこそこの値段がするのですが、また食べたにいきたいと思います。
今度は、違う料理とサーモンベネディクトっと次回行くのが楽しみになっています。
