My wife and I have been coming here for years. This is the first time I have had a poor experience at Honu. The food was excellent as always, but for the first time ever we had an issue with our server. Our server was not very attentive, and focused primarily on patrons who she knew would be swing Kevin James later that evening at the Paramount, leaving us to wait for an extended time to get our drinks, place an order, and even ask a question. Just because we expressed that we were not going to the show doesn't make my money any less green or my business any less important.

Always a good choice food is excellent the bar area is large and the bartenders are very friendly. We been going here for years never disappoints. We enjoy a pre-fixed menu before going to the movies. Mark the manager always stops by and checks in to see how your meal was. Honu is one of the best restaurant in Huntington great food and atmosphere.

We celebrated our anniversary there Wednesday night, so it was much less crowded and noisy than on weekend nights. We had an excellent chardonnay and one entree, with four of the small plates. So it was more of a "tapas" experience. Very good, well-paced service, excellent food, quiet enough for conversation.

Was here for New Years and ordered a bunch of apps and some drinks. Apps were fair at best; soup arrived luke warm even after my wife asked the waitress to make sure it came out hot. The manager brought us a replacement soup and then mentioned they don't bring the soup out very hot for fear of someone burning themselves and suing. If that's the case, then they shouldn't serve hot soup and only serve cold soups. If that wasn't bad enough, the drinks were mediocre at best and not very good. It seems to me that this place is now catering to the late 20s / early 30s crowd who probably aren't so picky so if you like good food and excellent drinks this probably isn't the place for you.

The place is stunning from the gorgeous bar to the chandeliers and fireplace. The staff runs like a well oiled machine and they never stop moving which is rare in most places. The selection of food is vast and there is something for everybody and every age. I had the salmon which was draped nicely over kimche mixed rice. The salmon just melted in your mouth and had a wonderful flaky texture. The rice was not clumpy as I have found in other venues, In fact the rice was fluffy in texture with a moderate yet evenly balanced flavor of kimche and a buttery rice flavor. And the cocktails are in nice large glasses and I suggest the coffee Manhattan it's great. Most important is my table was ready for the time it was booked and trust me I have been to places where you book a table and you wait an hour but not here. Come down it's worth it

We have eaten here many times. Never had a bad meal. Last time was last night. We both did the prefix dinner. My salad was wonderful, fresh and tasty. Wife has soup and it was delightful.
We both had beef ribs. Again terrific.
Waitress knew her stuff and was very helpful with a few small substitutions.
And they carry Fat Tire Beer.

We asked to have two things done a little different to the food and the waitress said (after speaking with the chef) the chef won’t do that. Salad with grilled shrimp came out without shrimp. Not at all accommodating and food was average at best. Drinks were good as was the ambiance. Not worth $200 a couple!

Quite a difference the Saturday after Thanksgiving Day 2017. The salmon was not up to par. The white mashed potato was pasty. Above all what was the most irritating was when the waitress came over to ask us “ what are you guys drinking”. The last time I looked is I am married to my wife ;a woman) for 50 yrs. and the waitress continued addressing us as “you guys”. I wish the wait staff in the industry stop using that and address us like “may I take a drink order”. This time of our visit was very disappointing in every thing we experienced. By the way we arrived 5:10 pm and got out at 7:45 because the service was so slow. We usually tip 30% as we know how important tips are. Unfortunately for the waitress we only left 15%.

Loved this spot. Nice meal followed by a DJ and dancing. Perfect for night out. Prices were good and food was good. The service was very good. Considering how popular it is I was expecting stuck up hostesses (which is common) but they were so nice and the wait staff was great too.

Often a party of three is placed in the least desirable area of a restaurant. In this case it was in between the bus cart and kitchen. I had to fight to get a better table although we had reservations. Of our food, the PEI muscles were outstanding! Breads in general were too greasy, as were the fries. Our server was delightful.
