I go several times every year but the last couple times not as good. This time the restaurant appeared dirty. Floors, table tops, and beach wall not clean. Our table by beach wall (the 3 foot high wall separating restaurant from beach) was nice but ants were everywhere and trails on the floor.
Our coffee tasted terrible like chemicals so we asked for new, was a little better but I still did not drink.
My loco moco “really” tasted like corn beef hash but out of a can. Gravy was thick, gloopy and the meal just was tasteless , not the same. The leafy green garnishes were totally warm and wilted though it doesn’t appear that way in photo.
My wife’s eggs Benedict was ok, too much paprika or whatever spice sprinkled on top and hollandaise sauce tasted faux, my wife ended with stomach problems later.
The service staff were nice, accomodati get and could smile a little bit more, it was a little gloomy.
Like I said, I come here to Hawaii every year for past 20 years and have always gone to the Hua Tree 3-4 times during my stay but has dwindled to now 0.
Great service and beautiful ambiance! Great food !
Celebrating our son and daughter-in-law’s anniversary. Wonderful venue. We’ve been coming for over 30 years. It’s always fine. Mahalo!
Took someone special there for Friday evening drinks, fireworks & dinner because it is my favorite place - beautiful beach, kaimanahila (diamond head), local staff, delicious food, tradewinds, sunset, music....
Incredible dinner. Had two different fish preparations and they were both outstanding. Got there earlier than our reservation so we got a table right next to the beach. The waiter told us to take our time because the table was ours for the evening. Great drinks, food, service and sunset. Make reservations as far in advance as possible. The place is small.
Hau Tree Lanai never disappoints. It is the best lunch treat that is affordable, incredible views, great food and friendly service.
We came here to celebrate my daughter and her new husband's wedding reception. We requested a table at the front overlooking the beach and under the Hau Tree and this is exactly what we got which made it a perfect setting for the occasion. The food was excellent and we all enjoyed our meals. The service was also excellent and our waiter was fantastic. We are all so glad that we choose here for the Wedding Reception and would definitely dine here again when we are next in Honolulu.
great view, nice food
The ambiance is very peaceful with an incredible view of the ocean and Waikiki. My wife had the Crab Benedict and I had the Corned Beef Hash and Eggs for breakfast. Both were excellent. Server paid lots of attention to us, but was not intrusive. You deserve to treat yourself to this wonderful experience.
Romantic setting, great food .
Our go to place for Sunday breakfast. What more could you ask—right on the ocean. Great food. Great service.
Took my niece for breakfast to celebrate your 12th birthday. Called almost a week ago for reservations & asked for a nice table for four. Called and inquired if anything could be done for her. The reply was no. We kept the reservation for our family enjoyed Easter brunch at this restaurant.
We arrived on time & stood in the reservation line. Shortly thereafter a couple came & stood in the walk in line & the hostess seated them first(thought that was strange). We were taken to our table right in the middle of the noisy dining area. Obviously not where I wanted us seated!!
We were asked if we wanted coffee which was poured promptly then within 3-4 minutes the server asked “what do yo want?” We hardly had a chance to look over the menu. Also a pleasant good morning would have been nice & welcome to the Hau Tree Lanai! The four of us ordered, drank our coffee and time passed and no server or coffee refills. Finally we had to ask. I also went to speak with the hostess & another fellow & told them that I was not pleased with our table & let them that I called about a week to make a reservation. I was told that all the tables were reserved. (A week earlier!??)
We were served our food and to say that I was disappointed with the classic eggs Benedict is putting it mildly. The Hollandaise was spicy! So glad I asked for it in the side! Eggs were cold and both English muffins were soggy because the eggs were not thoroughly drained! My sister ordered the veggie Benedict & it looked like luau leaves in a lau lau ( which is find for that dish)- dark and most unappetizing! Those veggies had been cooked beyond recognition! She only ate half of the order. Our empty plates remained on the table for a long period of time & finally we received the bill. Empty plates still remained despite the server picking up the tab!
We were charged for what we ordered but it would have been a thoughtful gesture if my niece could have received a little dessert. Next time - Halekulani!
Wunderschöne Location direkt am Strand.. Die Bäume müsste man vielleicht langsam dezent etwas zurückschneiden, damit man nicht zu sehr eingepackt ist.. Essen wunderbar! Service diskret. Ganz tolles romantisches Ambiente.
I have been coming here for many years...as a kamaina and now a California transplant. I think the quality of the food and service has been consistently good and the beach side setting on the quieter end of Waikiki is hard to beat. It"s a little expensive but I guess that comes with the view!
Love the narrative of the Hao Tree history on the back of the menu cover.
I requested the sea side seat on request, but despite being vacant on the day, hope did not come true. When deciding the seat, the elderly woman at the reception was watching the vacant seats on the sea side many times, but the seat I told us was the front seat. After that, when I saw that the group of Westerners who came after us was guided to the sea side seat, I became disgusted and became sad. It was a favorite place, but I do not think that I would like to go too muc
Absolutely loved our dinner. Spectacular location, service was excellent and the food was fantastic. Found it by chance and my wife and three teenagers loved it! Definitely coming back when we are in Waikiki some day!!
It was a great experience. Had my 1st date with my future wife there. Much mahalo to our waiter Sherwin. Cudos to the chef.
We had a wonderful time.Thank you.
The best experience I could’ve possibly even asked for. So incredible and the staff cares so much!!
I think so delicious.we ate eggbenedict.we had a good time there.
AMAZING! The view and the food was Delicious. The staff were amazing, quick and polite. I almost left my cell phone behind and someone 'chased' me into the lobby to give it back to me. As busy as they are things were quick, and I was given as much time as I wanted to sit, eat slowly and people watch. The orange juice was amazing too!
