Oasis was built up to us as being so great so honestly it was a let down.

Let me begin this review with full disclosure—we are from the East Coast and used to Boston and NYC prices so these prices didn’t seem out of range for the quality provided. This is one of the few restaurants that source 85-90% of their ingredients from the island and the freshness shows. We dined on a Wednesday night when there is live music—fantastic music with most patrons there for happy hour, music and appetizers. If you are looking for a quiet dining experience wait for the music to end at 7pm. That said, we were seated outside so the party atmosphere under the roof didn’t bother us at all and the music added to our enjoyment. Now the food: absolutely wonderful. Appetizers included a purple potato soup, pork spring rolls and salads. Everything was fresh, carefully prepared with delicate touches, and flavorful. Love that they had half portions of the entrees. Two of us had seared fish, one had the Japanese pork and one had the beef cut of the day. Again, great flavor but nothing drenched in too much sauce, etc. All the dishes came out at once (great service) which we appreciated. Homemade gelato for dessert (def get the caramel) was perfect. The drinks were exceptional —pineapple martini laced with blackberry syrup (but not sweet!) The Maitais is unique in the addition of something almond... loved it all. I would return here again and in fact our friends did the following night.

We had an oceanfront table which was the only good part. The service was slow. The table was dirty. We did not enjoy having to listen to the waiter serenading other men with love songs. Food recipes were odd. I would recommend skipping this restaurant.

Probably the very best place that we visit. From the manager who greets you(yes he does shave his head before the place opens every day!) to bussers and of course there is Henry.

This time we had the fresh fish that was Ahi and it was better that great. Also had the Curry with Ahi as well and I just loved that.

We will visit again before we leave the Island this time and already making plans for our next trip and dinner at the Oasis.!

Perfect staff including waitresses, chefs, servers, hostess, bus boys etc. very accommodating with the best Aloha spirit I have experienced in the islands. Beautiful setting with a full moon and was seated with a view of the moonlit ocean. Spectacular!
The boneless braised short ribs were tender, flavorful and easily fell apart with tongs of a fork. I substituted the bacon truffle fried rice with mashed potatoes and ordered green beans. Both were excellent. Accompanied by a glass of Malbec the meal was perfect. I had the apple banana cinnamon lumpia with pistachio gelato to end the meal.
The only concern I had was the uncomfortable dining chair.
All in all the best way to celebrate the 10th anniversary of my heart transplant of which the staff were unaware.

The Oasis was an amazing place to dine. Everyone was extremely friendly and far more accommodating than any other place I have visited. Our first night there we started with 3 people, then grew to 6 then to 10 after we were all ready seated. even though they had limited availability to seat us at 3 people, they accommodated the 10 with no frustration and nothing but graciousness.
That same gracious attitude was shown to us every time we ate there during our trip. The general manager was the person that accommodated us that first night and is absolutely incredible, friendly and warm. He is the gem that makes that place so special, his team is just as wonderful. Oh yeah, and the food was pretty great too!
If you have to go out of your way to dine here, it will be well worth the trouble.

Excellent food and service. Our table was probably 100 feet from the ocean, with appropriately great views. Shared crispy Okinawa sweet potato chip appetizer with poblano cheese sauce. My wife had the beet and arugula salad and I had the local vegetable Thai curry, each with the catch of the day, which was ahi. Both great. We shared the apple banana spring roll for dessert, small portion but just enough. Would highly recommend this place.

Fantastic spot! It was our anniversary so the hostess had an ocean side table for two reserved for us with complimentary champagne too — much to our surprise!

OpenTable asked if it was a special occasion and we were treated like a king and queen!

We had fish tacos and a beet/arugula salad and everything was delicious. The service was great. Friendly people!

And too add to the experience, to get there you walk through a lovely lobby, pass a koi fish pond and lush tropical gardens surrounding a beautiful pool complex.
Oasis was wonderful! Highly recommend if!

We had a wonderful view of the ocean at sunset! Our waitress was so attentive and sweet and our food was excellent! We ordered the tartare for an appetizer which was so very delicious and fresh! We shared the beet and arugula salad which was nice and flavorful. I ordered the fresh catch Seared fish -ahi which was cooked perfectly on a bed of mashed purple sweet potatoes and bok choy. My husband ordered the fresh catch Grilled fish which was a marlin, also cooked perfectly on mashed sweet potatoes and greens. Very happy and loved our dinner! This is a Must Do whenever we visit Kauai! We had a classic Mai Tai which was excellent and a dragon fruit sorbet for dessert! ❤️ Oasis!
