If you want to get away from the crowds at Waikiki, this 5-star hotel's patio restaurant is terrific. And make sure you check out the dolphins, turtles and fish.

We went for Wednesday curry lunch which is always excellent, but the service was a JOKE.
We had to flail our arms to get the waitress to notice us. It took 15 minutes to get coffee at the end of the meal. Food great - service a huge miss.

素晴らしい朝食でした。
タクシーで向かってよかった。パンケーキ、アサイボール全部とっても美味しかった。
チョコレート購入した時に紙袋じゃなかったことと、ホテルが用意してくれたタクシーが遠回りで、10ドルくらい復路は高くなったことが残念。
タクシーはチャーリーズタクシーがやっぱり安心です。

We had the Sunday brunch buffet. The omelette station was great. Other food selections was fine, not great. The service was excellent and the staff was very friendly. Beautiful view and ambiance. The price was about in line with what was offered.

I’ve had the seafood buffet as well as lunches here. I’ve been coming to this spot throughout the years and have loved all of it. The view is wonderful, beach without the busyness of Waikiki and the ocean vista beautiful without a long drive.
I must say I find the food at its best right now. The menu is more creative than in the past, and I think the Asian offerings better than ever. Even in a buffet, each dish is given special attention, each worthy of appreciation.
Service is good, and as I am lactose intolerant, I appreciate the df code. Smart because the.server doesn’t have to constantly go to the kitchen for such information.

表面がカリカリとしたハッシュドポテトは、美味しかった。エッグベネディクトの味も最高。
薄巻きパンケーキも美味しかった。
スペシャルはフルーツが付いているけど、お勧めしません。

4回目の訪問です。ハワイに行くたびにここでの朝食が楽しみです。
毎回気持ちよく食事して帰るのですが、
今回はサービスレベルの低さに驚きました。
後ろでものすごい音を立ててテーブルセットを始めたと思えば20人以上の団体席を
作っていたので、
静かな席に移動したい旨を伝えたところ、NOと。。。
別の方にお願いするとOKとのことで、席で待っていても、全く来てもらえず・・・。
空席に移動してしまいたいと思いつつ、それはマナー違反かなと。
チェックをお願いしても待てど暮らせど伝票は来ず・・・。
決して安い朝食ではないので、もう少し気持ちのいいサービスを期待していました。
とはいえ、大好きなお店なので、また伺います!リベンジ!

Tried Hokus last year, this year plumeria house. Its a very different vibe, didn't expect it to not be as intimate as Hokus. Service was pretty good, our gal worked over 30 years and it showed.
Would go again but preferred Hokus

Every member of staff shows a lot of aloha. I like the mix of diners -- local, tourist, old and young and all are enjoying themselves. Everything on the menu looks good and will appeal to all tastes. The ocean view further adds to the pure enjoyment of dining there.

Everything was fine. Our waitress "Z" short for her Chinese name was attentive and very pleasant. The bus person made sure that our water glasses were always filled. The food selection was awesome and very delicious. I'm especially pleased that the buffet includes sushi, not the fancy kind but the simple maki sushi and cone sushi. Salad selection was great. I'm not a seafood eater but still enjoyed the prime rib and other entrees. To the max, just wonderful. Thank you.

Being kamaiina night salad bar need more local items like fish/tako poke, mac salad, tofu salad, lomi salmon etc. Tempura entree had too much batter and greasy. Miso butterfish entree needs more miso taste. Rolls tasteless, lavosh stale. Coffee/tea should be included in cost. Dessert bar very good. I had
special occasion (birthday) entered
in my reservation but had nothing special.

That was a sunny day, and we had branch for my wife's birthday. When the staff took us to a table outside, we asked to be seated inside. The staff took us back and had us wait for 10-15 minutes. She finally called us and took us to a table. On the way, she told us that the seat will be outside but in the most inner area, under a shade. When she took us to the table, she said "oh, this was actually a table reserved for a group of 10 people. Are you interested in the table over there?" That was just a table outside. It was not as sunny as before, so we agreed. But the sun came out of cloud very soon. We were eating under the sun. When I saw only one person was sitting on the table supposedly for 10 people, I realized she tricked us. She could have politely asked or explained whatever reasons we could not sit inside. Probably she had been doing it for years with people who were not on their good customer list. They should know nobody wants to be tricked. And we now remember the restaurant only by the dirty trick, not the taste or atmosphere.

We went on a Friday when there's a seafood buffet. Two of us had the buffet, which had a large variety of salads, pupus, sushi, and seafood, plus beef and pork belly at the chef's station. I love the salads, sushi, and the bread pudding! The only disappointment was the fried fish in sweet and sour sauce -- the fish was fresh and good, if a bit dry, but the sauce was on the skin side so didn't flavor the fish. There's a small a la carte menu on buffet night, and 2 in our group opted for the Caesar salad and shared a steak. Large portions, and the dressing for the salad was so good that one friend used it as a dip for bread. Note that wine is expensive here.

It was a very busy evening with lots of large groups, and the inner dining area was full because of windy, inclement weather. That made dining noisy, but the service was very good.

My group of 12 enjoyed our lunch at Plumeria Beach House on Friday, 12/1/17. I did request seating inside, but we were seated outside, but it turned out nice. Thank you for celebrating 3 of our birthdays with delicious slices of guava cheesecake. Our server was very nice and accommodating. We were quite surprised though that the ice tea price was $7, more than the coffee and I think the expresso, etc. I thought that when I went with 3 friends on Wed., 11/15, the ice tea price was $4 and the Plantation ice tea was $5. We were not given menus to look at the prices of the drinks before we ordered them.
