1 of 3 breads are too salty, beef stake was both over cooked a little bit. Other than that, everything was perfect.

I would recommend your restaurant for fine dining. None of your examples of why my family dined at your restaurant fitted this description. All 6 of us loved the presentation of the food, the food & the service. Your waiters were a delight & service exemplary. Chip was delightful. So were the other wait staff & your Maitre d. Loved every minute. We have dined at Le Grand Verfour & other fine dining restaurants around the world & your restaurant rates with them.

If you want to be treated like royalty, this is the place to go. From the first moment you are greeted by the hostess to the escort out at the end of the meal, you are pampered. The food was wonderful, the atmosphere beautiful and it makes for a beautiful experience. Just a little pricey, but for a special event, so worth it!

Highly recommend, 10/10. We went to La Mer for my 30th birthday and had such a great experience. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing, with a few alterations to the menu due to food preferences. The cocktails were great, the service was impeccable - everything was timed perfectly, we must have spent 4 hours going through all the courses including pre-dinner drinks. Got a special birthday desert and a beautiful rose when we left. Loved every minute of the evening.

The gentleman that attended to us was Laurence, his recommendations and service was impeccable. We had a really good time there and would love to visit again if we ever had the chance.

We had the tasting menu -- $205 and worth it if you really enjoy wonderful tastes and beautiful presentations. A great variety of foods that left us saying "that was delicious" after each of the 7+ servings.

Knockout view of Diamond Head with the Halekulani 's Hawaiian music and dance on the patio below (5:30 - 8:30 pm).

Service was very attentive and respectful and not at all obtrusive or invasive.

Loved our three-hour dining experience. It satisfied all senses.

We ordered Three Courses. Just a good amount for us. We have more dishes with interest. So we decided to visit here next year.
And we are planning to study english hard to enjoy the conversation with the staff of LA MER.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday and we had the best dinner in a long time. We had a view of the ocean and Diamond Head, outside a Hawaiian band was playing along with a Hula dancer, to provide entertainment for our quiet meal. The food was out of this world, from the cold appetizer of fresh king crab legs, the scallops seafood entree is their speciality. I had the Filet Mignon and my wife had the lobster, both of which were exquisite, and their signature soufflé for dessert was amazing. Overall, the perfect evening experience for a special day, the ambiance, the service and the food are the best in Hawaii, Mahalo Nui Loa to Alex, Chase and the rest of the staff @ La Mer.

If you are looking to splash out on a fancy date or celebrate in a quiet cosy intimate spot, then this is your perfect venue. Make sure you arrive early enough to have a cocktail at the bar first. Highly recommend the Miss Bonde cocktail!

A truly outstanding French restaurant overlooking the ocean within the Halekulani hotel. Excellent cuisine with a 7 course tasting menu - you can also order 3 courses from this menu as I did - or a la carte. Very good champagne selection. Nicholas (Nick) and Scott from the service staff took very good care of me.
Overall a definite recommendation for a memorable dinner in Honolulu.

This was me and my girlfriend's favorite dining experience of all time, and we have been to several Michelin star restaurants back on the mainland including a 3 star Michelin restaurant. The food here was exceptional and the ambiance was incredible. We were celebrating an anniversary and were seated right at the open window with a view of Waikiki beach while the sun was setting. There was also live Hawaiian music playing from the restaurant next door and we had a perfect view of it. We each ordered the 7 course meal which was $202 and a few cocktails at $18 each. Although it was pricey, it was perfect in every way and the service was amazing. The waiters were genuinely nice and kept offering to take our pictures. This was our most memorable dining experience ever and one of the main highlights of our trip.
