I have dined at La Mer well over 20X and each one is exceptional. The level of service is consistent with each visit. This was the first time dining at La Mer for my two friends & we were celebrating a milestone birthday for one of them. They could not stop raving about their dining experience and both thought their husbands would also be impressed. Both are considering a gift of La Mer for a partial gift for their sons’ nuptials.
Thank you to Laurence & Jason who exceeded the restaurant’s mantra of service excellence. They even sang happy birthday.
Food and service were great and we got a wonderful ocean view table on that balcony
It was very nice. Our family had a lovely time. The dinner was very good and the staff was very nice too. We are all satisfied with everything.
Ambience, location and service were superb. food was good but not unforgettably great (a surprise, given ratings and prices)
It was definitely most memorable dining experience in my life. Ambience was so romantic with the live music from House without a Key and lovely breeze from the ocean. This place is absolutely for any special occasions for you. I came here to celebrate my birthday. Their food was a top notch and the service was extraordinary. They made my birthday unforgettable. I really appreciate their service and everything!
Very good food, service and ambiance. The sunset view was a plus!
For the past 20 years, I have been coming here to celebrate birthdays and the excellent overall never fails. I plan on coming back every year for all birthday and special occasion celebrations. Thank you La Met staff for always making these visits special.
They made my wife's birthday a memorable event. Excellent staff, great food, wonderful location.
Best restaurant in Waikiki! Wine list to die for, impeccable service, French food at it’s absolute best, and we travel a lot. Worth the top price. Lamb and duck are my favorite!
I was very very very veryvery happy!!!!!!!!
I went to this restaurant with my girlfriend for her birthday. We wanted to make it a bit special. It turned out to be and EPIC FAIL. Never in my life have I experienced a restaurant so expensive and so bad! I know that Hawaii is expensive, but $63 for a meal - for what??? First, the waiter's accent was so bad that we could barely understand him, then he brought the wrong mineral water, then the other waiter poured tap water into our glasses with mineral water. However, all of this was nothing compared to the absolutely rancid taste of their lobster bisque, which I have ordered. I ordered lobster bisque in many places before and can tell for sure - that was not lobster bisque. In fact, it tasted so bad, that I don't think even my dog would have eaten it. Then they brought the beef fillet, and it was just putrid. I could not believe that a 5-star restaurant could serve poison instead of food! I don't know where all these positive reviews come from. I have been living in United States for over 15 years now and I have never experienced food so bad. Even McDonalds is better for you. My girlfriend ate her food, mostly because she felt ashamed not to. And after all of this, they charged us a whopping $193 !!! I still cannot believe this happened to me.
On top of all of this, I looked at their dessert menu - every single pastry was a crazy combination of things that should never ever be combined together and it cost a whopping $29 each! I understand that nowadays chefs and restaurants make crazy food to set themselves apart from the competition, but this one went way overboard. I am not sure what their chef is smoking, but I could not call what he made - food. Definitely not fit for humans.
My recommendation - if you care about your health and our wallet - stay away from this restaurant as far as possible.
Perfection! We had a romantic dining experience with an amazing view, delicious cocktails, decadent food, and superb service.
It begins with a thoughtful, custom cocktail at the intimate bar, followed by being taken to a cozy table where the culinary dreams unfold in a French course menu embraced with very beautiful and touching island values. Memories are made of such things as these. A timeless moment by the sea in Honolulu - La Mer.
Very nice restaurant overlooking the water with great food and unbeatable service.
Really appreciate for everything. The dinner strongly affected my proposal and it was success!!
Quite simply, the best dining experience my wife and I have ever had. It is an experience like no other and is a “must” for any visit to Waikiki, but be prepared for an expensive evening and a priceless experience. The very private dining room is located within the Halekulani Hotel on Waikiki.
As a former New Yorker, a fitting analogy might be to take the cuisine, service and elegance of Restaurant Daniel on the upper east side, and now add sitting on the ocean in Waikiki and that is La Mer.
Magical evening. Asked for and got a table next to the ocean. We watched lightning flashes offshore all evening as our own private light show. Extremely attentive servers: discreet, friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable, knew when to come or stay away. Food was outstanding, beautifully presented, and delicious but not as WOW as when Chef Mavro was there. La Mer used to be very hoity-toity before but now it's more relaxed and fits the vacation vibe. Still costs a lot but worth every penny.
The best service I have ever had. Excellent food but the service really put the restaurant over the top. Excellent!
We came a little early to try the bar out and they had some amazing cocktails with also food pairings as options too. Staff and cuisine at La Mer was top notch, our waiter Chip was amazing and very helpful. He was able to give great suggestions with respect to the course options as well as wine pairings. If you have a very special occasion or just want to experience some fine dining while in Honolulu, this is the place to go.
Lovely night to celebrate 20 year anniversary xxx
Five star: Wonderful food and outstanding service from Laurence made a special occasion even more special! Expensive yes, but absolutely worth it for a special celebration. Be sure to go early to have cocktails at L’Aperitif, each paired with its own amuse bouche.
Enjoyed the excellent food, service and ambiance. Very good place for a special occasion.
We love coming here! Henry has been our bartender both times. He’s fabulous!
My favorite. Simply the best restaurant for the finest dining experience on the island. Impeccable service, amazing food paired with the finest spirits.
Ohhh lala, Absolutely the best. We had the four coarse meal, excellent. Attentive, friendly staff. We will definitely be back.
Repas pour un anniversaire
Excellente adresse pour ce restaurant de cuisine Française
Tout est très fin avec des mets de qualité
Plat à conseiller, le homard poché
Très bonne carte des vins
La qualité se paie avec 205 $ le menu dégustation à 8 plats
Allez-y car cela en vaut la peine
The setting was beautiful, overlooking ocean and Diamond Head. Hawaiian trio was playing down below- close enough to hear well but far enough to allow quiet conversation.
Service was attentive- but slower than it needed to be. Would have appreciated a better pace to get us started.
Wine list was outstanding and prices marked up to a lesser degree than some comparable restaurants.
Most disappointing was the portion size. We decided to forego the 7-course tasting menu, and just get appetizer and entree. My Appetizer (seared foie gras) was spectacular. But the portion size of my $60 duck entree seemed smaller than the foie gras!
This is my second visit to this restaurant; I took my husband there last year for his birthday as well. The staff was very attentive, called us both by name. One man said he remembered us from last year and that he thought we might even be sitting at the same table. My husband loves their wine list and the fact that he can get high-end wines by the glass. It was a wonderfully romantic evening with good food!
Excellent quality meals, excellent and gracious service and beautiful and classic ambiance.
OUTSTANDING service, knowledgeable menu options with details of ingredients and authentic French cuisine.
From the Hostesses to the servers and bus people, they combined with the ambience created with the backdrop of a world class Sunset that only an unobstructed waterside Waikiki view can offer... a dinning experience unequaled.
Men, step it up and make it special for your special-lady!
One of the best dining experiences we have ever . The food, service and ambiance were all world class.
taste good! Staff serve politely. Everything comfortable! Tom's service is supreme!
Poor service. Arrogant wait staff , weak cocktails and extremely small portions in relation to price point. We are experienced gourmets. Never have we ever had wait staff tell us that they could not “release “ bread until orders were placed. Not a good experience and would not highly recommend
Comfortable opulence in that the service was authentic and the food was unpretentious. No needless pomp and just the right amount of extravagance. Truly a night to remember!
Superior service and food in a stunning setting.
Surprised that the beef tartare was premade. My husband is allergic to onions and they couldn’t do a beef tartare because it already had onions in it. Setting is lovely. Food is good. I didn’t enjoy my veal and didn’t eat it. They took it off my bill. I did not ask them to do that. I even told them no. But, they insisted. Very nice. Soufflé was very good. I think our waiter needed more training. When asked about the items on the menu it just read what the menu said. Noth8ng more.
Loved everything except food and price. Lovedeverything except food and price. Loved everything except food and price. Loved everything except food and price.
