Absolutely perfect for my birthday celebration. Romantic outdoor dining at sunset, right on Waikiki Beach along the Gold Coast. The fresh fish is so ono delicious with various preparation options. I chose the Opakapaka with Citrus Mango with brown rice and fresh seasonal vegetables. My husband had the Opakapaka prepared with a lemon butter caper sauce. Enjoyed our 5:30pm dinner with plenty of time to Uber to the Diamond Head Theatre for a 7:30pm show. Excellent for lunch or dinner. The service was excellent and the menu lists which items are Gluten Free.

We enjoyed Hau Tree to celebrate our 10th Anniversary dinner. The caprese salad, spinach bacon salad and broiled Mahi-Mahi were all very good. The atmosphere was fantastic under the hau tree while the sun set over the Pacific!

Food was delicious. Ambiance was decent, but felt somewhat tacky. There were stains on the menu. Hostess was kind, and changed my wife’s chair without us having to ask, because the leather on seat was severely cracked. Didn’t care for the waiter. Didn’t tell us to enjoy our food, didn’t come check on us to ask us if we were enjoying our meal—very impersonable and felt like he just wanted us to eat our food and leave. Felt like we could have had a better experience somewhere else for the price we paid. Will not come back.

Thoroughly enjoyed dinner here with my mom and sis during our Hawaiian vacation. The restaurant is located right on the beach in the New Otani hotel, and we were treated to a pink sunset, fresh fish, and careful service.

We love the Hau Terrace and have been going there for many years....when it was the Kaimana, before it became the New Otani Hotel. We love to go there with family and often when we have visitors. It is such a pleasant place, the food is good, great service, nice to dine out doors. We also love the Miyako Restaurant upstairs and frequent the restaurant.

Overall It is a very nice dining experience. The website makes setting up a table reservation simple and you can request a table near the water. The menu online makes ordering simple as you can make some decisions before you arrive. If I had any complaint It would be the length of time it took to get our food. We were seated at 7 pm and it was almost 8 by the time we received our food. The food was very good and presented well.

サーモンのエッグベネディクトとクラブエッグベネディクトを取りましたが、量は多く、一人で食べるのはお腹いっぱいになりました。
エッグベネディクトとパンケーキを取って二人でシェアするのがいいと思いました。

I visited there with my mother as a breakfast on the last day of our visit. We ordered Garden Benedict and Acai bowl
We enjoyed the texture of english muffin and it was the best Egg Benedict I've ever eat. As I've seen in the review beforehand, I think their muffin is totally different from the one I get from the supermarket
On the other hand, acai bowl was disappointing as the granola was stale.

We loved the atmosphere of the restaurant but overall, I wouldn't recommend this restaurant because of their poor service
As soon as we were seated, a waiter came and asked us "coffee?" without providing us the drink menu. We thought that it was free and they only had the only option of coffee and tea. However, their average coffee costs 5 dollars each. I think they thought that we are Japanese who cannot speak English but their service is so disappointing

In addition, when we were trying to check, one of the waitress lost my mother's credit card and asked us to check her bag in case she didn't put her card in the check. I thought that was so rude because he didn't even try to find her card. Consequently, he found the card on the counter but we wanted to get rid of the 18% chip for this restaurant.

BE CAREFUL IF YOU ARE PAYING WITH YOUR CARD

母とハワイ滞在最終日にハウツリーラナイレストランにお邪魔しました。
ガイドブックで見かけた雰囲気を気に入り、一度行ってみようという感じの来店だったのであまり期待していなかったのですが、お店一押しのエッグベネディクトは最高でした。アサイーボウルも頼んでみたのですがこちらはグラノーラがしけていて量も多いので食べるならisland vintage coffeeのものをおすすめします。

一番このお店で残念だったのはサービスで、店員さんが席に着くなりコーヒー?と聞いてきたのでてっきり無料のもので他にオプションはないのかと頼んでしまったのですが、他にもカプチーノなど色々ありますし5ドル取られるので気をつけてください。また、お会計の時にクレジットカードを預けたらスタッフに無くされ、もう一度鞄を確認しろと言われて本当にヒヤヒヤしました。

フォトジェニックではありますがエッグベネディクト以外特にお勧めできる点はなさそうです

サービスというか客を迎える体制が全くなっていません。 席につくと、招待客がが「冷たい!」といい立ち上がりました。なんだろうと思うと、ボロボロの椅子のクッションから、水がベタベタと染み出ています。
すぐにウエイターにその旨を伝えましたが、そばにあった別の椅子をよく確認もせずに交換しました。 しかしその椅子も同じです。それでその事を伝えると、なんとタオルを上に被せただけです。
座っていた招待客は、暫くそのまま座っていましたが、途中で我慢出来ずに、もう一度言いました。するとウエイターは、またタオルを変えようとします。私は、「 タオルを変えるのではなく、椅子を変えて下さい」と申し上げました。。するとウエイターは、タオルを椅子に投げるように置き、「他に椅子はない」 といい立ち去ったのです。
信じられませんでした。ほかにもたくさんの席は空いていて、それらの席を確認することもなく、客をボロボロで水染みでる椅子に座らせるなんて言うことがあるのでしょうか?
大切なお客様を接待する機会でしたのに、お客様不快な思いをさせ、大恥を書きました。
こんなレストランがあっいいのでしょうか?

A sudden rain didn't dampen our spirits, as we were almost finished with our dinners, which we had enjoyed. The waitress did not suggest we move to cover, though clients at other tables did move. We were about ready to leave, so we left. But on second thought, we might have had coffee and possibly dessert if we had been moved to a table out of the rain.

Some standard items such as the Kaimana Plate are over priced. Our service that morning was slow, although the the servers are friendly and try to be accommodating. But I continue to take my mom here for brunch because we so much enjoy the outdoor setting, view of the beach, and its accessibility (near but not right in the heart of Waikiki).

座席数よりも明らかに予約人数が多すぎるのでは?

Unless it's pouring rain, this will always be one of the best dining options on Oahu. I can't count how many times I've been here, brunch, lunch, dinner and it is always the same: excellent. This time, I had Opakapaka and my friend had steak and they were equally good.
