What can I say, saddened to be one of the last customers of this amazing and what should be considered historic place in Waikiki. The food was and always was OUTSTANDING! The service impeccable! Tiago was our server there and this final night of being opened, service was excellent yet again, we were his last customers ever for him at ocean House, most of the folks worked here for 5+ years, many over 20 years! Why Outrigger closed this and Shorebird are beyond maddening, these (Ocean House and Shorebird) places offered the most Aloha in all of Waikiki. The only two privately owned restaurants left on Waikiki beach, gone forever to corporate takeover. The years of amazing food and sunsets served here is something of legendary status now. Aloha 'Oe Ocean House, our Ohana loved your place very much. Sunsets we will never forget, with an atmosphere that will never again be equaled in Waikiki. Mahalo nui loa for the memories Ocean House, my parents brought me here in the early eighties, then I brought my wife here a decade later, then I moved my children here and Ocean House was instantly their favorite place on O'ahu as well, thank you again OH for great times with Ohana!
I am disappointed that the restaurant will not be reopened under the new hotel management. Hopefully the excellent staff and chefs will be recruited to continue using their talents at the new concept restaurant.
Great experience beautiful beach front restaurant great food and service!
The meal was fantastic. We started with a Caesar salad, shared an entree of filet with a lobster tail and Maui onion mashed potatoes. It was delicious and we were both stuffed!
Restaurant gave a birthday pudding.
We found out when we arrived the restaurant was closing in 3 days. Many items on the menu were unavailable. We were celebrating our 30th Anniversary and asked for seating with a view. Although we were seated overlooking the beach our table was very close to the public shower. It was disgusting watching people come up while we were eating taking what seemed to be their weekly shower. Needless to say we didn't stay for sunset or dessert.
Incredible oceanfront dining, with smiling, friendly service and scallops and steak cooked & served to perfection! Champagne, wine and a complimentary dessert & picture, who could ask for more? Really enjoyed the food & the people😀
Great service! The biggest negative was the beach was full of loud, obnoxious, intoxicated people.
Excellent food and atmosphere. Fish dishes were amazing. Sorry to hear it's closing.
Excellent service; very friendly people. Delicious food.
Beautiful outlook, wonderful food and service, perfect Waikiki experience.
On my first trip to Hawaii, my sister and I wanted a nice place to celebrate our birthdays and vacation. Ocean House fit the bill, fine food, good service, great location, nothing bad to say. I had the prime rib special, it was excellent, my sister had the moon fish and it was excellent.
A great time for our 40th wedding anniversary trip! But we are saddened that Ocean House will be closing at the end of the month. We have gone there over two decades and will miss it very much.
Food was fantastic. The service was great. The view was fantastic and we rolled it off with a fireworks show. This place closing is a shame.
Great restaurant. Very sorry to see it closing at the end of September. Great staff and the best restaurant view in Waikiki
Been coming for years. The food has changed a bit. Sorry to see them close.
The view and our seating were spectacular. There was a friendly mix of diners and the Staff was very attentive!
So sad to see this old time restaurant changing hands!
Would return many times if it were possible.
It's a hidden gem for the locals!
40th Wedding Anniversary after renewing our vows, which I asked for beachfront table and all requests were given, good service, great food and wonderful location ❤️
Went here for my husband's birthday, I was really happy with everything. He got the steal and lobster (we added and extra tail it was $37 that day) I had the seared ahi which was also amazing. The rice with mushrooms was really good and paired well with the fish. We will definitely be returning.
The service was great. Our water glasses were filled throughout our meal.The view you can't beat. We had the parmesan crusted Opa and it didn't have a lot of flavor. My pina colada lacked flavor and was very watered down. I am mad at myself for not sending it back especially because of the price paid.
Ocean House is amazing!! We have returned here year after year during every visit to the Islands, celebrating many anniversaries here! So sad to see it go! Thanks for the memories!!!!
Always a great meal. Terrific beach sunset view. Service is always top notch. Food is fresh, hot, and picture-perfect. Closing on Sept 30. That will be a sad day.
The service was great. The food was so so. The presentation was rather unappealing.
Our server was very helpful. We requested ocean view since it was our wedding anniversary and they have been more than helpful to provide us with a table by the sea. The food was delicious and we finally received a complimentary desert due to the special occasion. Thumbs up! Mahalo!
