La Mer at Halekulani
We request elegant evening attire for women. Dinner jackets or dress shirts, dress slacks and shoes for gentlemen.
The food was good, but the entrees were the same size as appetizers. The food was good, but too expensive for what was offered.
Sunset in my eyes - and there were plenty of other seats. Be careful of the seat you get. Sent back fish dish as the sea bass was rubbery. Then we could not eat together-too expensive to not be able to eat together.
Excellent service. Old Hawaii beauty and ambience! Perfect for a special occasion in Honolulu.
Awesome service. Definitely coming back again for next year Valentines.
Great spot, beautiful decor and plates!
Five stars in each category are not enough. This is a very special restaurant in every way. French inspired from a chef whose interpretation is unique. Our waiter’s suggestions were accurate but made decisions difficult! After all was said, we let him guide us & each course was remarkable. My scallop appetizer was beyond belief - just perfect! We had the three course meal, although four & seven courses were available.
The restaurant itself is a work of art- overlooking the Pacific from large windows. The artwork and overall design of the room are breathtaking. Note the wood panels etched w intricate designs. The evening was perfect,
What a stunning restaurant! Beautiful food excellent preparation and nop notch service. Can't wait to go back
The best fine dining experience in the city. Everything is first class from the greeting, complimentary champagne, every course, after dinner chocolates, impeccable service!
It was amazing. The food, the service, the atmosphere, was beyond expectations, 6 stars.
We celebrated our engagement at La Mer. The staff was incredible. We had a beautiful ocean view table and were given a celebratory cake and rose. Between the amazing food and atmosphere, they made our celebration truly special.
Birthday dinner with my wife and daughter. Outstanding food and very relaxing evening. They closed the folding doors due to the high winds and rain that evening.
Very nice atmosphere, food amazing, service not quite perfect. Expensive but worth it.
Beautiful setting for our 45 anniversary. Delicious food
We were greeted and seated immediately upon arrival and provided with a stool for our purses. We were given some champagne to start and ordered cocktails. The food was outstanding, varied seasonings and presentations. My husband had abalone which he really enjoyed, our friends ordered the filet of beef, and I had the lamb. I wish I could describe it the way our waiter, Chris, described it. It sounded almost romantic. The main course were fantastic, but what really makes it special are all the different tastings, as we only ordered the 3 course meal. It included an appetizer, entree and dessert. Everything is presented so beautifully and tastefully, it really is a special experience and worth the price. We felt we really got good value. Very enjoyable 2 1/2 hours spent looking at the ocean and listening to the music from the lanai downstairs. Then we finished the evening at Lewers Lounge listening to jazz. Perfect.
Everything was impeccable! The food and especially the service. Our head waiter was Alvin, and rarely have we had better service. The food was amazing as was the ambience. Expensive but well worth it.
The food is very good, service is good too.
Lovely setting, amazing food, attentive and friendly service (even for a single diner -- not always the case at fine restaurants!)
The best dinner of my life. Had dinner with my family and the La Mer welcomed us with so much respect and love.
What an amazing experience! Chip and Dan were our servers, and they were wonderful. They made our experience even more special! Dan was like the house photographer. : )
Chip had recommended a peach/coconut alcoholic beverage that was not on the menu, and it was delicious!
I ordered the tasting menu, and my wife ordered the 4 course. It was spectacular. The way the flavors and textures meld in your mouth is just divine!
Our dinner took 4 hours, longer than we anticipated, but very well worth it as you cannot rush the pleasure in indulging in quality food. We enjoyed a sunset view.
It was a phenomenal and amazing experience. The best meal we have ever had on the islands!
Thank you for making my birthday very special!
We will be back!
The food was beautifully presented and, of course, delectable. I do have to say that the staff is what put this experience over the top! They were so attentive, informative, knowledgeable and funny! We had such a lovely evening interacting with them while enjoying this very rare treat to our palates.
Everything was Amazing. Can’t speak highly enough about our dining experience.
1. Ask for a seat by the window with backdrop of Diamond Head. This is the best seat of the house.
2. For dinner reservation, time yourself for sunset hour as this place has a magnificent view of the sunset by the ocean.
3. The soufflé is amazing.
4. Extensive wine list.
5. The soufflé potato is to die for.
We 4 had the 7 course tasting menu and each course was notable in its own way. Fresh local ingredients, fine appropriate foreign wines in the recommended pairings, an easy GF accommodation for one of us. It was a special occasion for us, but heck, just going there for dinner is a special occasion!
Great food experience.
la Mer is the best in Honolulu. Service is impecable and great ambience.
Best waitstaff in Hawaii!!! And best views.
By far the best restaurant we have ever eaten at with phenomenal service and cuisine—highly recommend to all parties and don’t know what they could have done to make it better
This was a dinner to culminate our honeymoon to Hawaii, the service and food were impeccable
With a wonderful service and meal, I was able to celebrate a very good birthday and marriage 10th anniversary. Thank you very much. I want to go again.
This was the best if not the second best restaurant I’ve ever eaten at. Class , elegance and romance! The tastes were explosive and erotic on you’re taste buds
Greet experience except I didnt care for the lobster. But I enjoyed the experience with
Birthday the service and food. Was 5 star rated. We will return.
Thank you for the pictures.
Best place in Hawaii :)
La Mer is our favorite restaurant and we visit La Mer everytime we visit Oahu.
Many local materials are used in their foods so that we can enjoy different taste than normal French cuisine. This time I chose Fromages instead of dessert, and I was impressed that all the cheeses are so nicely matured.
Another fantastic evening at La Mer - food fantastic, staff totally on song and venue delightful
An amazing experience with superb food and service.
Chip was awesome and the food was amazing! Best meal ever and outstanding service
