I called ahead for my reservation and asked if we could be seated outside and I was told yes but we would need to wait for a table. Once I arrived I asked to be seated outside and they sat me up stairs. We were seated near the window where we should see the sunset from our side.

The filet mignon was cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth. I am a steak snob and haven’t been able to find a place with decent steak in a long, long time. I had almost given up and they nailed it. So appreciate and grateful.

We started with the calamari which was flavorful and larger than expected. Shane as our server was working hard and had great recommendations. Given the post covid situation here, all the servers should receive some great appreciation! My husband had the filet and it was cooked perfectly. Coming from a ‘beef’ state this was confirmation the chef knew what he was doing. The chimichurri sauce was delicious! I had the ahi tuna which was nicely prepared, tasty and the sauce complimented it well. We would happily go back, order the same thing or others on the menu. Wonderful!

Everything was amazing at Kimos- the food and the staff were beyond our expectations. We came for our honeymoon and this was by far the best dinner we had all week. We were able to watch the sunset during dinner and listen to live music, simply amazing night.

The food was a huge disappointment. My pork ribs were so charred and dry that the manager noticed them as he passed by the table and insisted on replacing them. The replacements were not significantly less charred/dry. The other entree at our table, a “shrimp and lump crab salad” was sad and tasteless. The “lump crab” was a pile of flavorless flaked seafood; the shrimp had been sliced horizontally and piled so as to appear a more abundant portion an contained not a hint of shrimp essence. The ambience is iconic. Service was cheerful and enthusiastic. The drinks were fine. We passed on dessert. It’s a legendarily popular spot, but its charms were lost on us.

Booked reservation months in advance, day of reservations called and was told I had to come early to book outside. Can 1 and 1/2 hour before my reservation at 5 pm. I love sunset and the only reason I booked this place
So far in advance was to have a sunset view. We weee seated outside with a big free big tree our view. Food and service were fine. But did not make up for the weekend the let downs and price

We arrived at 5:15 (our reservation time) and were seated immediately. Our server came to the table within 5 minutes, gave us water, took drink/appetizer orders and asked if we going to use the QR code for the menu, or if anyone needed a paper menu. She returned with our drinks and appetizers a short time later and took our order. The meals came out in a timely fashion and the food was wonderful, as always. I alway go for the prime rib, but the rest of the party ordered the Parmesan crusted fish or the fish and lobster special. Everything was delicious.

The server was really great and everyone loved watching the sailboats gliding by and watching the sunset. Another great dinner at Kimo’s!! Mahalo!!

Food was bad. Mai tai was terrible—actually had to send it back. Ambiance was like a college bar. Server lost our credit card and said she only carried it 10 feet to the register—as if the fact that it was missing was our fault. Don’t bother with Kimos.

Good food. We loved our ocean front dining. We even saw a turtle swimming by. My family especially loved the calamari and I enjoyed my fish tacos.
Great service. The server even took a picture for us.

What a lovely place to have dinner. We had a terrific view of the sunset, everyone found a menu item they wanted and enjoyed the food immensely. And of course the Hula Pie is ridiculously good. The musician was terrific as well.

Overall, our experience was good.
However, the fish was a bit dry. And the vegetables were slightly overcooked.
Service was great! From the check in staff to our server, Eric. Eric did a great job, providing several dinner options and was very attentive to our needs. The best part was the birthday dessert at the end. Made the evening very special for my birthday! Thanks Eric and Kimo’s.

Not that great of service, felt dirty inside, balcony rails totally blocked our view of the ocean plus they were super strict about their screens being taking down right around sunset so we could see. Took awhile to get our food, not even that great and of course way overpriced. No interest in going back.

We were very lucky to score a reservation last minute at Kimo’s today. It was at 4o’clock and they pushed it to 430 for us which was very nice. I loved my fish taco’s! They were definitely tasty. My husband ordered the lobster and unfortunately it was small dry and unflavored for his liking. My daughter is a vegetarian and had the raviolis which was fine. My son-in-law ordered the fish dish which he enjoyed. Our three-year-old grandson had ordered the mac & cheese and french fries and he just wouldn’t eat it and didn’t like it. So my daughter re-ordered him a grilled cheese which they wouldn’t accommodate so they brought a cheeseburger and we had to take the burger off the bun. They still charge for two meals even though he only ate one which I thought wasn’t very tactful. All in all it was really nice experience but it’s a four-star not a five star by my expectations.

This was a nice restaurant with great food. Staff super friendly. We arrived early by mistake and she was nice enough to still seat us. However, sitting on the 2nd floor rail, the sun on your face was pretty unbearable in July. We had a great time and delicious food. Thank you

Engagement and Birthday week for my Fiancé. Very loud as it was very busy. Had to wait 20 minutes past our reservations. Restaurant overlooks Pacific Ocean and sunsets there are amazing. Appetizers were delicious but did have to send Prime Rib back bc it was brought to table undercooked. Service was okay. Most servers were young in age. Overall I would give experience a 3.5 out of 5 stars.
