 (Hawaii)·Dined on October 1, 2017

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!

9月30日の最後の日のサンセットに伺いました。
店員の皆様の心地よい対応も、ビーチ前のロケーション、 サンセットの海岸線に沈む夕日まで見える美しい景観、美味しい料理と
最高の時間でした。

プライムリブは中でも特に美味で、お味も柔らかな食感も最高でした。

閉店となりましたが、
復活を強く願っております。

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.

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.

夕刻18:45を予約して伺いました。
10分程度入り口で待たされました。案内されたテーブルは入り口に近い場所にあり、テーブルの立て付けが少々問題ありでした。
料理は色々頼んで4名でシェアすることにしました。
サラダも大皿を4名で充分、前菜のシーフードのクリームソースが特に美味しく、お代わりをしてしまいました。メインも美味しく頂きました。
お酒はシャンパンで乾杯し、メインが肉だったこともあり、ウエイターさんのお薦めばっちりでした。ご馳走様、また伺いたいです。

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.

40代男性です。
ここには頭のおかしい店員がいる。
わざわざ予約して来店したのに少々待たされ、名前を呼ばれて、やっと店の中央にある海の見える席に案内されたと思ったら席に着く直前に「out side!」あり得ないですよ。人種差別レストラン!絶対行かないほうが良い!今となっては店員の名前と理由を聞いておくべきだったと思うけど、ハワイでこんな事初めてだったので面喰らって、ただ店を出てしまった。金髪白人男には注意です。他の店員の表情を見る限り、困った顔をしている感じだったので、他の店員だったらこんな事は無かったかも知れないけど、そんな男の行動を戒める奴が誰もいない。
9月に閉店?
そうでしょうね!
