I’ve dined at Honu many times and this was my first time since the lockdown. I was disappointed that my request for a booth wasn’t honored, despite a booth right next to us, being vacant for quite some time. Our server, Anthony, was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu as well as the specials. The other major disappointment was the portion size; it seems that the entree portions (filet mignon) were very small; the cheesecake, was less than mediocre.
I expected much more from Honu and hope that they get back on their game soon.

Service was a bit slow. Food seemed to take forever. After we asked about it, they mentioned that it was because apps didn't go in with the meal order. No one told us it had to.

Food is always top notch as is the wait staff. Made us feel so special. Sal and the staff took excellent care of us and it was a perfect dinner. The best coconut martinis on the planet.
Highly recommended.

Beautiful space. This has been a fav for a long time. Not sure what changed but the menu selection was limited & not very appealing. Coconut martinis were on point, service was good. There was an argument at the bar which no one seemed to handle too well. I think its time to find another favorite.

Honu service is always excellent, the staff is friendly and efficient. It’s a great location with very nice atmosphere. The bar is always clean and they provide dividers between customers the servers are friendly and the happy hour is a good deal considering that Ketal is included. Food is always delicious and prepared to your liking. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Went for Valentine’s Day brunch. Love the bottomless mimosas offer. You have the choice of mimosas, bellinis, sangria, Prosecco & a manmosa. The food was great and service excellent.

The brunch was excellent. All of the food was great tasting, prepared beautifully, we had the short rib hash and the benedict, it was wonderful. The cinnamon roll was hot and tasted great and the yogurtini was great. Sal our server was great. Very pleasant, courteous, visited us often to make sure we were ok.

This used to be my favorite restaurant. We went when all the restaurants reopened due to covid and it was not great but I thought it was due to just reopening. Went back valentines weekend and again not so good. Food was not hot, salmon had no taste but the ceaser salad was terrific.
Needless to say, I don’t think we will be coming back anytime soon.

Food was amazing! We had the pork Mac and cheese, honey salmon and fish tacos. No complaints. All delicious. Service was awesome. Very attentive and kind staff. Ambiance is very elegant and lovely for a date night. We even pointed out how the lighting and music were perfect because we could see and hear each other. 10/10

One of my favorite restaurants. Last night my steak was very tough I didn't say anything because my friends would've been annoyed but I was pretty disappointed. It was not a quality cut of meat last night.

The atmosphere was nice, music playing in the background. We sat at the bar. The service was very quick. I ordered the short ribs and it was very good. My friend ordered the chicken and the potatoes came cold but they took care of it right away.
