Mediocre food and menu choices - wait service was good but slow
We had a delicious dinner at the Oasis. Our server, Henry, made great suggestions from the menu. The carrot pumpkin soup was outstanding. Even our 11 and 8 year old girls loved it. The local catch of the day was very very good. The half-portion option was perfect for us because we were not super hungry. We really enjoyed our experience here.
Great food, beautiful environment near beach, outside, farm to table local food and wonderful service. The only constructive criticism was the size of the appetizer, very small.
Wonderful evening at what we thought was best seat in the house. Only reason we say 4 for service is that it seemed busy. She was great
This was our second time here and it did not disappoint. The drinks were wonderful and the sweet potato chips were wonderful as well.
Pleasantly surprised with the menu and service our waiter was knowledgeable and fun
Food and service were great, but we had to wait for a long time for food to come. They brought drinks after the food came and forgot about my kid's food.
Very attentive, friendly staff. Delicious food, spectacular location. Highly recommended.
Very nice place right on the beach. Accommodating staff and very friendly. The food was very good and well priced. Would definitely recommend.
The view, before dark, was beautiful! From there it was down hill. The service was far below what we expected. The waitress. ... it was as if we were doing her a favor to eat there. The food took forever to come and once received it was mediocre. It took a long time to even be served and they really weren’t that busy. The choice of fish was limited and the steak was tough. It also took a long time to get the bill. We were very disappointed. With all the wonderful restaurants on the island, this isn’t one I’d ever go to again!
Wine and food both highly over priced and unimaginative. Service and welcome were very good, but not good enough to compensate. Will not be back.
My girlfriend, her family and i went here for dinner one night we were in Kauai for a conference. We are gluten free and we split the quinoa and curry dishes because we couldn’t decide. Both were really good! It’s on the ocean so the views are wonderful especially when they open up the glass doors. The service was really nice and helpful.
Food and ambience was amazing. The sweet potato chips are a must!
The Worst meal I’ve had ever at a restaurant. Really disappointing. Left restaurant hungry.
We wanted to go big on our last night in Kauai and Oasis delivered. The place is gorgeous and had we come an hour earlier, Im sure the view would have been spectacular (it was dark by the time we sat down). Short rib was very tasty, quinoa had wayyy too much butter, but the grilled catch of the day won us over. We topped it off with some ice cream and sorbet. Really enjoyed ourselves and the mai tais are not to be missed!
Eveything was wonderful. We had a table outside and had a beautiful view of the ocean. Our server was attentive and food very fresh and flavorful. Would definitely go back!
Arrived and the restaurant was ready with our reservation. The service and food were excellent. The restaurant is very open and we love to listen to the ocean while we eat. We come here every year during our vacation.
Food mediocre for the price , do not recommend.
The first night we were treated wonderful and it was a special experience. I made a reservation to come back for breakfast reserved a table and it wasn’t even honored. If Sharron is in charge she goes over and above whoever was there the next time basically laughed at us when we told him we had reserved a certain table. Sad to say I’m a come back
What a surprise. We decided to ditch into the resturant because of snarled traffic and Yruely came upon an oasis.
View is excellent and so was the good and service.
Best place to eat in Kapaa!
Fortunately, the happy hour crowd and music was ending when we had our reservation, so we had a wonderful experience looking out to the ocean with the waning full moon reflecting on the water. Delicious bar drinks. Unique appetizer of sweet potato chips with poblano cheese sauce and a local green bean salad with orange vinaigrette started the meal. Delicious vegetable curry with added marlin and Kauai steak were delicious- fortunately, half portions were offered , which was enough for the curry, after the appetizer. Desserts were mango sorbet and a grilled fruit dish- both a great way to end the meal. Very friendly and attentive service!
Meh. I’ve had much better food and service in other places. You are simply paying for the view. Service could have made it a much better experience. They didn’t seem to care.
Final night in Hawaii
Knowledgeable waiter. Great food. Happy hour drinks were well made. Really nice meal for 2 for under $100
Excellent innovative meal, wonderful open air setting, and friendly knowledgeable service. Best mai tais ever. The beet salad was exemplary as was the perfectly cooked fish. We’ll be back.
What a fantastic place! This place is literally right on the beach. Great seating, warm and friendly lights, and an overall comfortable and inviting ambience. Service is quick and friendly withou being intrusive. And the food is top notch - fresh, well prepared, and most importantly, delicious! I had the boneless short rib and it was excellent. Wines are superb and fairly priced as us the food. And don't forget desert!
Fabulous food in a cozy beach setting. Our waitress remembered us from last year! Our favorite place to eat on the island.
We enjoyed our meal and the Hawaiian outdoor dinning under a roof even though it was raining, The food was very good and we liked the fact that you could get half meals. That meant you could order two entrees if you couldn't decide or if you were watching calories you could just not overeat. The service was friendly but very slow and the staff was not too attentive. The bartender took forever to make five drinks and as one of my friends said, he wouldn't do very well in Las Vegas. Overall we come back because the food and the location are great. We will just make sure we don't have deadlines to meet.
Everything was nice but not exceptional. The food was very good, as was the service, but it all fell a little short of being great. A nice night out.
This is my second review of this fabulous restaurant. Nothing has changed, except our servers who have been great. The food is outstanding, the view is beyond belief and the service -- which has been excellent -- rounds it all out. This is our go-to restaurant for all occasions: a flavorful lunch; a special occasion (our recent wedding anniversary); off-island guests; our date night dinner.
They make a mean (extremely good) Mai Tai.
The Warm Bean Salad with steamed local beans tossed in a grilled orange vinaigrette with charred onions, roasted peppers, chevre, bacon & radish was an explosion of flavors on the palate.
The restaurant offers booth 1/2 portions and full ortions for dinner...we both opted for the 1/2 portions so that we would have room for dessert. Wish more restaurants would offer thsi option.
The Sakura pork chop with fried saimin noodles, nahm prihk nom, long beans, marugai, pako ferns, chili oil was exceptional.
The catch of the day (starts with an M, but can't recall the actual name) was a meaty succulent offering.
Dessert: The Apple banana spring roll with cinnamon sugar, caramel and gelato was well worth having only the 1/2 portions for dinner.
Andy, our server was fabulous. Good sense of humor knowledgeable about food choices, and attentive. Best meal we had on the island in our 2-week stay. Entrees were tasty and interesting. Prepared very well. Great ambiance!
Sehr nettes Ambiente mit tollem Essen von sehr kompetenten und freundlichen Bedienung!
Let me say first that we visited on New Year's Eve so some of our experience may have been affected by the holiday. I will try to take that into consideration. First, we had a nice table with a nice view of the beach although it was dark so not so impressive. They offered a prix fix holiday dinner which should have made it easier for the kitchen and the servers. Three course meal with a choice of three appetizers, three entrees and two deserts. We tried them all. I will give a brief description of each:
Mixed Greens - tasty with mac nuts and dates, unexpectedly good
Mushroom tortellini - undercooked and still tough
Lobster, cauliflower, broccoli dip - amazing with a half Kona lobster tail on top
Beef Filet - Excellent although slightly over cooked. Asked for medium rare and it come medium with only a touch of pink
Pork Osso Bucco - fall off the bone with great flavor; really good
Rare Ahi Tuna - Almost inedible. Sushi grade ahi ruined by a chef with no clue. Coated in salt. crazy.
These were a joke. Horrible. Canned fruit cocktail with meringue - we each took one bite and left the rest. The chocolate cake was so dry that it also could not be eaten.
The service started off good but got slow and then slower. We had to ask for our waiter twice after trying unsuccessfully to waive him down.
We might go back but with so many options in the area, probably not.
We went to Oasis for New Years Eve. They contacted us ahead of time to share that they would be using a set menu vs. their normal menu which was nice to know. The Mai Thais were probably the best we had in Kauai and the steak was the best I’ve ever had! My husband got the Ahi Tuna and that was also excellent. The servings were huge - and the wine paired were excellent.
Amazing food and ambiance!
Went for breakfast as it is part of the complex and close. Bloody Ceasar was yummy and presented with pickled veggies. Just wanted some sustenance to take me through to dinner so ordered the Bacon, eggs and potatoes. It was a luncheon size plate that had room on it, very skimpy on the potatoes and only 2 thin slices of bacon. Had to flag someone down to get s&p for the eggs as our waitress disappeared. Strange considering we were one of three tables seated in the entire restaurant. The kicker for me was the potatoes were under cooked.
Went there for breakfast. Good food with a great view. Would return.
The food was dry & overcooked. It was not fresh tasting either.
