Very good food and service. Enjoyed the evening. Waiter was attentive and helpful.
Our last dinner at japengo! Tomahawk was amazingly juicy, awesome flavor, chili crab with the manor buns was to die for! Oyster and sashimi so fresh. Saved room for coconut brûlée and tiramisu! Great wine list and attentive service from Karsten, Simon, and Shirley! Too bad they are closing!
We celebrated my husband’s birthday and we were not disappointed. Our waiter, Arnold, was the best. He was very tentative and gave the best customer service. The food was delicious, especially the scallops we had as an appetizer. It was a bit pricey but overall everything was awesome!!! Thank you and keep up the great work.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Japengo. The food it was delicious, our waitress it was fast and funny, and they surprise us with complimentary tiramisu.
Service and food were excellent! I’m now a fan of Pacific Rim cuisine!
We went there to eat "good steak" for dinner, but actually the steak was burnt and did not taste good. We expected higher quality stake as the restaurant is named "Steak & Seafood" so were disappointed. Too bad.
Also, the room lighting is too dark to read the menu. It should be reviewed.
NYE set menu was delicious and they adapted it to be gluten free.
New Years Eve dinner, service was great. The food was average.
Food was ok. Wasn’t terrible. Wasn’t great either. Just wasn’t what we expected or some tables next to us. Over priced for the value
Our first visit to Japengo's was quite memorable. We have dined at several high end restaurants in town and the service we received here ranks at the top of the list. Our food selections for drinks, appetizers, main courses and desserts were all fabulous. All well prepared and creatively presented. One glitch with the doneness of one of the steaks, but that was quickly remedied without a hitch. The ambience was quite pleasant and made for easy conversation around the table. Would recommend this restaurant for any occasion. They have private rooms and screened areas for larger groups. A great find.
Very good food and excellent service just wished it was not freezing as much in there as it would have made our dinner more pleasant.
Was hoping for outdoor seating but all deck furniture is gone due to remodel. We left and went to pool bar next door (same hotel, same floor) to enjoy outdoors, sunset pool, and 1/3 the price. They also don’t have sushi anymore which is why we chose the place.
Main points: No sushi & no outdoor seating.
It so fantastic. Service, food, place was perfect for family or couple.
Great food and service
Had Christmas dinner here, food was good but ambiance was lacking.
Great food, attentive staff and a romantic atmosphere.
We had an excellent meal and the service was also excellent.
Date night with my wife. Couldn’t have asked for anything better. Food perfect. Everything perfect.
Outstanding all around - Food & service was exceptional. We live in Oahu & will definitely go back!!
One of the best meals we've had at Waikiki. But quite pricey so save this place for a special occasion.
Bone in tenderloin was excellent. Service was nicely paced.
The food was delicious and the service was great. We were there for a birthday dinner and were sat in a private room in the front. Our waiter was very attentive. We had someone with a food allergy and he took the time to bring out the chef to ensure that she was able to eat what she wanted. I had the filet mignon and it was tender and melted in your mouth.
Pricey resort restaurant, good for special occasions. Portions are good.
Appetito is still in their soft opening. They do not yet have their pizza oven operational, so we ordered from the rest of the menu. We had the bacon-wrapped dates appetizer, the hanger steak, and the half chicken. The food was good, but my partner needed salt and pepper for his chicken. Service was attentive. The staff seem to have established a good routine - their were no issues with speed of service, getting the order right, or other issues we've seen in new restaurants.
The service was amazing and the food was impeccable. We ordered a tasting menu and a bunch of appetizers so we can taste all the creative options, we had a great time.
We all loved our food. Portion sizes were great...we had a couple people have to take a doggie bag out because they were full. The waitstaff could have kept the drinks coming a little faster, but overall they were very polite and helpful.
Food was excellent, service was okay could have been better
Was alone so ate at the bar. Food was outstanding!
Just got engaged. The food was amazing, The drinks could be a little larger. Ordered a couple martinis and they were about two drinks. Being a newly engaged couple thought mabe a bottle of champagne would be on the house... there were alot of open tables and a couple was sat right next to us. Kinda wanted a little privacy. The food was amazing
Was at restaurant 1.5 years ago and very very pleased
Hoped for same quality but quite disappointed
The best food at Waikiki beach front! Enjoyed the many meals.
My boyfriend and I visited Japengo 3 out of 5 nights we were in waikiki. The food and atmosphere was amazing. All our waiters were great too, especially Arnold, who knew a lot about the food and made our experience even better!! :)
We're loyal customers of Japengo for many years now. We loved the lobster with the sweet chili sauce, truly unique and none like it on the island. The New York strip was very tender coupled with small potatoes. The staff was very attentive and treated us like royalty. Can't wait for the next Japengo experience.
Food was very good - excellent taste/preparation. Shirley was a super waitress - very attentive to our needs.
