I was surprised that on a Sunday at 10am it wasn't more crowded? We had a good friend from out of town visiting and Hau Tree Lanai is a place I used to hang out in the 1970's and 1980's. Can't beat the view anywhere in Waikiki. They have managed to keep the birds out of the Hau trees now? It was like returning to a friends house after a long time away!
Wonderful experience having breakfast with dear friends. Thank you for this fabulous place.
The food was good; not sensational. The view was fantastic and being so close to the water was a prize element of this restaurant. The service was mediocre and the wait and service staff seemed like they did not enjoy their jobs and weren't very hospitable.
If you like a sunset view overlooking the beach, then Hau Tree Lanai is the restaurant for you. The service was impeccable and very friendly. Unfortunately, the food seems to have come down a notch -- in quality, that is, but definitely not in price. The NY steak was perfectly done, but it wasn't all that tender. The mixed seafood was good but not exceptional. My dining companion and I will definitely return, but next time we will sit in the bar and opt for the bar menu.
We come to Oahu once a year for five days and always eat at least two suppers at the Hau Tree Lanai. The setting on the Pacific is wonderful. The service is great. We always order a bottle of wine and ask to be allowed to drink it before ordering and we are always told that is fine. The food is very good and plentiful. I highly recommend this restaurant.
This restaurant should be at the top of everyone’s list when visiting Honolulu. It has excellent service, delicious food and has stayed at this high quality over the years. I always go there 3/4 times a year and would never miss it.
You won’t be disappointed and only if you don’t go.
The atmosphere was beautiful, the service impeccable, and the food amazing! Add to that that there was great live music and you have all the ingredients of a very special evening!
I ordered an appetizers of edamame hummus and veggies thinking it was a normal hummus made out of chick peas with edamame and veggies. Wrong it was a hummus made out of edamame. Not good plus $14 wasted. The chicken teriyaki was excellent and the tacos were good as well. Service could of been better. We started off with one server but then it switched so it was confusing. This is the second time I have reserved on open table and Hau Tree has marked me as a no show. Super frustrating and extra work for me to email open table and tell them I was there,
Terrible coffee, mushy deep fried potatoes, cold food, this was the second time there and won’t go back for breakfast, I have dietary needs and they were not accommodating with them at all. The reason for the three star was the location
This is a hidden gem in Waikiki and was honestly one of our most wonderful experiences!
One of the most pleasant dinners we have ever had on Oahu and we have been coming here for almost 50 years
We had lunch at a nice table by the beach, but the food was average and overpriced. The cocktail was just okay. The ambience was good—the big tree is pretty, but the restaurant could use better upkeep. It overlooks a public beach in Waikiki so the people watching is good. Ha! Not the best location... it is pretty far from downtown Waikiki and yet a bunch of hotels are cramped right up against each other. The upside is that we were able to find street parking with meter pay not far from the restaurant.
Delicious food with nice atmosphere under the tree and by the beach, perfect egg benedict!
I had the Salmon Benedict Florentine. The eggs were perfectly poached and while the salmon was slightly dry, the delicious hollandaise sauce made up for it! The bloody Mary's were tasty, but small compared to others we've had here. The ambiance is very nice, picturesque inside and outside the venue. We would go back.
We came toward the end of the breakfast service and were seated behind one of the trees so we could not see much of the water. Ordered tea and they brought coffee and didn’t bring out correct drink until after the food. Food was ok but nothing special. Definitely rushed as they tried to close up.
Excellent menu, great service, very nice location on the beach, quiet, nice ambience.
The service was outstanding and the view breathtaking, however, the food fell a bit flat. We had the mixed grill, the lobster and shrimp were both overcooked and rubbery. The scallops and fish were done well, though.
Overall, this was a nice romantic dinner with great ambience and fair food.
We took friends for Sunday brunch and everyone enjoyed the location right near the beach. The food arrived hot and we all enjoyed our meals. The waiters we very helpful and kept the coffee coming. My only complaint would be that we had reservations for 10:00am and weren’t seated until 10:25. Mind you, we were given a great table next to the beach wall.
Amazing patio-restaurant off of the hotel located right in the beach. Amazing setting. The food is very good and sure to please. Service is excellent.
Excellent food and service and we had a great family brunch.
Our waiter Jun was outstanding!!
