We had Father’s Day dinner at the Plumeria House. We chose it because it offered selections for diners with food allergies. My husband and I had the butterfish. It was fantastic. Our grandson had the sushi and he said it was the best he’s ever had. We would definitely return, and recommend it.

Good times. Great Father’s Day lunch specials, though the Mahi was 90% good and 10% fishy. But I think that’s NOT the norm. Service was good.

They closed the main room and made us sit in the ballroom with no view and we drove over an hour to find the place. I wish I had a heads up. Was very disappointed.

Food and service excellent. There was no ambience as we were only able to dine in a banquet room instead of overlooking the beach because of a supposed emergency maintenance. We were not told this over the phone when booking our reservation and after taking a $50 uber ride to get there decided to just stay.

They temporarily moved the buffet into the adjacent ballroom and it changed everything. I felt like I was in someone’s retirement party with all the makeshift stations and chafing dishes. Hardly felt elegant for the price and the location. The food tasted pre-prepared. It didn’t feel fresh. There was hardly any selection either. For the price we paid, it was a let down. They should have lowered the price for this situation. Oh well. Try again next time when it’s back where it should be.

Hate to give a bad review but this was the most expensive and least favorite dining experience on Oahu. First of all, I was never told the original restaurant was closed and we would be eating in a banquet hall. I wouldn’t have booked this reservation had I known. The beautiful outdoor dining experience was a huge reason we wanted to go here. Our seafood tower was good but not worth $125 and they forgot the lobster. My beach house salad had less than half an ounce of crab meat on it and only two shrimp for $32. The Caesar salad had boxed croutons. The filet was really average. I don’t mind spending a lot for a meal if I feel I get my money’s worth and we didn’t here.

They closed restaurant last minute for their “maintenance” reason. They prepared ballroom instead, where all indoors. Much different atmosphere from what “Plumeria Cafe”, so sad😞

Excellent service. Although I did not indicate we were celebrating 2 birthdays, when we told the server we were there celebrating our birthdays, she brought out two beautiful slices of rainbow cake! It was a nice surprise. Although we had to dine in the Maile ballroom for the day, the tables were nicely spread out and servers were attentive. We ordered the bento for lunch and it was a good way to sample the miso butterfish, ahi poke ball, teriyaki ribeye, sashimi and macadamia nut tart ala mode.

Disappointed that the actual Plumeria Room was not available. I go there for the views as well as the food. There should be a comp or discount of some sort to accommodate the inconvenience of having to have lunch in the ballroom.

Service was INCREDIBLY SLOW. They seem to be severely understaffed, as so many restaurants are right now. The food was good and the view was beautiful so we didn’t mind as much waiting for 10 minutes before anyone even acknowledged us and another 15 before anyone took our order. I hope they can find more staff soon!

There are much better choices in Honolulu. I came for the food and a good view. Couldnt get seating on the lanai for a 5 pm seating while it remained half empty during the 2 hrs there. Service dropped off half way thru the meal otherwise would have ordered another course. The tables they did seat on the lanai they seated them all next to each other. Tables were socially distanced but i would not want to be next to others when they could have spread out. They were not enforcing masks when walking thru the restaurant. Other than ocean view the best part was the guy serving water, bread and bussing tables. He was very attentive and should def be promoted to a server.

Food and atmosphere were great. We got the signature bento which could have more meat or fish to offset the expense. Took 20 minutes to get our order taken after seated but good service once we complained. Could have been a perfect brunch otherwise

I had a reservation at 5:45pm. We were seated and ordered some drinks and salads. Servuce was extremely slow! There were 8 of us and after a half an hour, 1salad and 1 soup were delivered. The waitress seemed confused about our order and had to come back several times to ask us again to confirm the order. We received a first round drinks however, our food order wasn't served until 7:30pm. I ordered a Ceasar salad and the dressing tasted like something out of a jar. It actually tasted exactly like the Costco Caesar salad. The lack of service and quantity of food for the price we paid was absolutely not worth our time and money spent. It was a very disappointing experience for all us!

The food quality was great but limited and I expected greater. Maybe it's the covid and they are limiting the items.
Hopefully when things are settle, they can open up with more food items.
