今回は2回目でした。4コースを選びました。前菜、魚料理、肉料理、デザートのどれも美味しかったです。
ワインも白、赤とも料理に合うグラスワインを選ぶことができました。デザートのスフレは絶品です。
今回も海が目の前に見えるテラス席に座りました。夕日が沈む瞬間や、夕方から夜にかけて景色の変化を楽しむことができます。また、スタッフの方がきれいに写真がとれるタイミングで写真をとって下さるのがよいです。
ゆったりとした時間の中で最高のディナーを味わうことができます。
また、お伺いしたいです。

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.

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.

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.

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!

ハネムーンディナーで利用しました。予約必須です。
上品で高級感のあるフレンチレストランですが、開け放たれた窓からはハワイアンライブ(ダイヤモンドヘッド側の席)などが楽しめるのでリゾート感もあります。オーシャンビュー側の席では、サンセットが楽しめるようでした。
お料理もすべて美味しかったです。
予約時に「ハネムーン利用」と伝えたら、デザートケーキをサービスして頂きました。
日本語は通じませんが、スタッフの皆さんがとても親切なので心配ないと思います。
また特別な記念日にお伺いしたいです。

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!

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!

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.

記念日のディナーに予約しました。前菜をひとつ、メインに魚料理とお肉料理をひとつずつ、最後にデザートを選ぶ4スターコースをチョイス。
そこに、1品ずつおすすめのワインをサーブしてくれるサービスを利用。これがとてもよかったです。自分では選ばないだろうデザートワインを初めの前菜に合わせてくれ、それが大変美味しかったです。料理とワインのマリアージュに感動しました。

お料理は工夫されていて美味しく、サービスも行き届いていました。海と夜景の見える席で特別なディナーになりました。
