    Maybe French cuisine just isn’t my cup of tea but we thought the food was overrated. The Value was very poor overall for the portions and quality. Can’t say enough good things about the service and the atmosphere though -truly impeccable in that regard .

    Had a great experience at la mer. Everything was delicious and the service was exceptional. We have a serious allergy that they handled perfectly. The views are beautiful with a window seat, but even without you can still see out pretty well.

    Our second time dining here and it was wonderful. Truly one of the best world wide dining experiences we have ever had. I noticed our special occasion when making the booking and it was recognized by more than one person. The 7 course menu was perfection and the view was wonderful. When I mentioned we had made a special trip to Honolulu just to dine here, Chef came out to thank us. The staff takes incredible care of you and goes above and beyond to make this a memorable meal. It’s a splurge but well worth it! Can’t wait until we can return.

    主人の誕生日と結婚記念日のお祝いでハワイ到着の初日に行きました。 夕方5時30分の予約で、海を眺めるテーブルに案内していただきました。 時間と共に移りゆく海と空の眺めがとても美しかったです。 お料理は4品のコースとワインのペアリングをオーダーしました。 フランス料理でありながらも斬新な味わいは食べるのがもったいないほど美味しかったです。もちろん見た目も美しいものでした。 お料理を待っている間、ウエイターの方が気軽に話しかけてくれたり、海をバッグに写真を撮ってくれたり、とても親切でした。 英語をほとんど理解できない私たちですが、ゆっくりと優しい英語で話してくださったので何とか理解できました。 気づけば8時近くになっており、こんなにゆっく食事をしたのは久々でした。4品で足りるか心配でしたが、最後は苦しくなるほどお腹いっぱいになりました。パンが美味しかったのでたくさん食べたというのもあります。 お値段は、1ドル140円代という超円安だったことと、お料理とサービスの素晴らしさからチップも弾み、日本円でおよそ12万円でした。 それでも、それだけの価値はあると思います。 またハワイを訪れたらきっと来たい、そう思わせてくれるレストランでした。

    The experience received at La Mer raised the bar for some may restaurants. The attentiveness, the food, the staff, the views, the wine selection, etc. Mark, Kevin, Alvin, and the rest were top notch. They explained each item presented. Kevin suggested a wine that would pair well with lamb and fish. They added an additional birthday item to make the experience truly something I shall ever forget. The dark chocolate covered Macadamia nuts coated in Pop Rocks were a culinary wonder.

    Wonderful anniversary dinner. It was our third time celebrating our wedding anniversary at La Mer and it has been special each time. A waiter of ours, Luke, was thoughtful enough to offer to make a reservation for us at Lewer’s Lounge when I had asked him if they had re-opened post Covid. A special night all around. Food, service and location were as impeccable and memorable as always. Thank you from MaryAnn and I, Boyd Judd

    La Mer was excellent. Wait staff was attentive, professional,but down to earth and not pretentious at all. Chip the head waiter and his team made us all feel welcome in the elegant dining room with our open air view of the water. The chef’s attention to detail was outstanding and his creative use of ingredients was visually entertaining and tasty. Also order the vanilla soufflé!

    Went for dinner on our 25th wedding anniversary and it was great. I had the filet with foie gras and black truffles and my wife had the sea bass with beurre blanc. Both were excellent. Better than some Michelin starred restaurants we’ve been to.

    La Mer is admittedly a special occasion restaurant. There are two fixed-price menus available - a four course and a seven-course tasting menu, with an a la carte option allowing you to choose items from both. Eating here should be considered a dining experience with impeccable service and excellent food, all of which naturally comes at a price. Our dinner for two, with a pre-meal cocktail and a half bottle of excellent champagne ran about $800 with tip. It was worth every penny spent, and then some.

    My wife and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary at La Mer, and it was such an amazing experience. Our server Laurence was fantastic, and helped us through our courses, explaining in detail the rationale behind all the wine pairings. Over the course of our dinner, he also helped us take incredible ocean front pictures. We wouldn't be surprised if he was a professional photographer on the side! The manager and serving staff were incredibly helpful and thoughtful over the course of our meal, and we truly enjoyed ever minute of our dinner experience. We're already looking forward to going back for our 2nd year anniversary!
