We went to La Mer for my mums birthday and it would have to be the best meal we have ever had. We arrived at 5:30pm so that we could enjoy the sunset and were the only patrons at this time. It was worth coming early as we really got to enjoy the view both before sunset and then as it set compared to people who came between 6 and 6:30.

Out waiters were phenomenal, giving detailed information about the food and even told us how to make the cocktails we enjoyed. We got the degustation meal which was delicious and because it was my mums birthday they gave an additional little cake.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a sensational meal with fabulous service.

a good-quality French cuisine in a sober and elegant atmosphere. however the service is too hasty, portions are reduced and prices completely out of scale. as an Italian I do not recommend it to those who know perfectly the European cuisine and know what to expect from a French restaurant.

リゾートホテルのレストランで、子供にもドレスコードもあり少しガッカリしましたが、雰囲気は良かった。大人x2,子供x2 でUSD1000かかり、この旅最大の夕食となりました。
但し、レセプションの女性の笑顔の無い対応は最悪。

The entire experience at La Mer was excellent from start to finish. Each and every person we had contact with was exceptionally friendly and interested in meeting our expectations. Attention was at the perfect level. The presentation of the food was probably the best of any restaurant I've ever been to and the timing was perfection. The food was delicious, especially the special delicate potato fingers. The restaurant is certainly worthy of a visit any time I'm in Honolulu in the future.

La Mer is at the top of the Hawaiian restaurant food chain. It is virtually a flawless dining experience: superb food, beautifully prepared, professional service, an extraordinary wine list, lovely setting, and beautiful ocean views. It does not get better than this.

Amazing is the only word I can use to describe the experience and view. The waiters were amazing and even suggested different angles and times to get the best sunset pictures. We received anything that could be needed before we even knew we needed it. Well worth the cost and I would highly recommend the restaurant. Then as a parting gift we received these chocolate covered macadamia nuts which were wonderful. We asked at the front desk the following day if they could be purchased and as we were describing them the person was smiling and shaking hid head in agreement that they were wonderful. Sadly, they are not available for purchase so we just have to ration the ones we have. Thank you for the wonderful evening.

Derek and I had one of the most fabulous experiences we have ever had dining. Derek is an executive chef and we've eaten all over the country and world. La Mer actually tops the list of all the wonderful places we've been. Thank you for making our time in Hawaii so memorable. We hope to return sometime soon. La Mer is a place that we will share with all of our friends who plan to visit Honolulu.

La Mer lives up to its five diamonds--the outstanding service & food and the ambiance. The 3-4 hours dining experience is unnoticeable because of the pace. Full disclosure I have dined at La Mer more than 20 visits and my party & I are very comfortable with the staff but their enthusiasm and impeccable service never ceases to amaze us.

Thank you to Mark who recommended the Côte de Veau Rôtie which our party of 4 ordered. It was on spot and a nice portion.

Special thanks to Alex, our captain, who my friends love & thoroughly enjoy having wait on us--it's like you're dining with us.

It exceeded my expectations with the food, price and services. The timing of food preparation and portions are on point. This place should’ve earn a Michelin Star rating. I have been in Alan Wong’s and I regret going there, we should’ve been in eating in this restaurant to begin with. Luckily we had an opportunity to come back to Hawaii for the second time around this year and I am glad we tried La Mer with no regrets. Thank you for sharing a wonderful evening. Love love the staff for sure. If Michelin people reading this, please rate them they deserve it.
