Hawaii Regional Cuisine
Our island is full of stories, none more inviting than the one told by the dish in front of you. Known for its modern take on Hawaiian comfort fare, Alaia embraces the community through its support of nearby Mauka Farms, telling their story through every plate, bite, and sip. Using unique, native produce such as apple bananas, Moloka'i sweet potatoes and tomatoes from Pele, a third generation farmer, our culinary team works in tune with the seasons. At Alaia we reap the bounty from the mauka to the makai, working with hand-selected fruits and vegetables from our farm to your table​. We let the quality and simplicity of the ingredients speak for themselves. And we love what they have to say.



Starting on September 13th, 2021 per order of the City and County of Honolulu all dine-in guests ages 12 years and older will be required to show proof of Vaccination for Covid-19, or a negative Covid-19 test taken within the last 48 hours and a valid form of ID.

    Our mains were fabulous, the curry lobster was brilliant. For dessert we ordered the choc tart which was amazing but the iced soufflé had to be returned as it was frozen solid and went all over my lap when I tried to put my spoon into it. Also, the music from The Lip Bar was competing with the music in the restaurant so it put a dampener on the overall experience.

    The kitchen must be far food usually gets to the table luke warm. Have eaten there four times. Food is pricey ,$18. For a slice of chocolate cake! However food is generally good though one of our guests was’t able to eat his pork chop it was so salty and all five dinners were just above room temperature. The room was very noisy, but otherwise the ambience was very nice. The service was excellent many thanks to Tiger who was exceptional!

    We live on island and it keeps getting better. Our last visit was 6mths ago and the menu has seriously LEVELED UP! I dunno what changed, but keep the chef and give him a raise! Oriana our server was amazing and her suggestions were spot on. We started with the BIG ISLAND KAMPACHI TARTARE as our appetizer and it was so fresh and onolicious! That alone was worth the drive. The entrees just heightened our taste buds and this place deserves some Michelin stars. I ordered the WHOLE KEAHOLE LOBSTER CURRY and it was more than just visuals. Presentation A+ The lobster chunks were satisfying and scrumptious. Hubby ordered the KONA CRUSTED BEEF TENDERLOIN and he said it was the best steak he's had on the island. Son had the PAN ROASTED HAMACHI and it was thick and tasty, indeed. Definitely coming back to try the other entrees. We couldn't make up our minds on desserts, so we ordered three. We all agreed that the ICED EXOTIC SOUFFLE was the all-around favorite. Hard to describe, but it was wonderful and hands down the family favorite. The TRIPLE CHOCOLATE TART was liked by hubs and son, but my 2nd fave was the PASSIONFRUIT OPERA BAR because I love my lilikoi. Moral of the story: You can't go wrong at Alaia. The service, ambiance, and the culinary delights will keep us coming back for more. If you're kamaaina, save your money and splurge at Alaia. You won't regret it. If you're malihini, go for broke. YOLO and you deserve some fine dining at ALAIA. Seriously, Michelin-star food.

    Date night for us was a lovely Friday night. Mostly locals dining around us who were friends with the staff. Food was average- nothing special despite using local ingredients. Our cocktails were delicious. Would try again for lunch.

    It was a beautiful Thursday morning September 15, 2022 we were continuing to be impressed by the reimagined Turtle Bay Resort. My sister Karen in from Seattle and I are both locally born and of course like many lived away went to college and made our lives My husband and I live in a home overlooking Pearl Harbor. We were greeted by Fred a tall blond gentleman valet, who had come to surf, live on the north shore 40 plus years ago, Jeannie evening hostess at Alaia 42 plus years on property terrific over the phone advising, Anna our server local gal personable beyond the call! Suggesting these personalities be woven into the TBR legacy story, even more warmly welcoming, Ohana. Karen and I seated graciously by Sharon hostess of Alaia around 10:05 far end great view dine in. I commented to Karen why would anyone stay in Waikiki when you could have all of this, excellent project Blackstone n Benchmark.

    It was a slow night at the resort, so only one other person came through the bar area (the main outdoor seating was somewhat busy). The bartender, Rosie, had excellent recommendations and the food, especially the hamachi, was delicious. Highly recommend.

    My spouse and I had a wonderful dining experience at Alaia. The ambiance is difficult to top as the restaurant is positioned to overlook Turtle Bay. Situated on the grounds of the Turtle Bay Resort, the dining experience is special from the moment you step through the massive front doors of the resort. The resort feels elegant yet relaxed, and that feeling carries over into Alaia. The food was great, drinks were tasty, and the view was incredible. Put it all together and you have a 5 star experience.

    Eat here about once a month. We were told they have a new head chef. The menu changed eliminating several of our favorite dishes. The basis of our complaint is that the dishes we’d ordered before were much less appealing this time. Even the Focaccia bread wasn’t near as good. Basically, we will go back one more time, but if the food isn’t a lot better, we won’t go back. It’s sad because the ambience is unparalleled.

    Superb view of turtle bay and sunset. 10 tables on deck so very quiet and intimate dining. Yellowfin tuna and scallops dinners we're excellent and fairly prices for location and quality. Wine was overpriced more than one would expect even for a high end restaurant. Thomas was an attentive & friendly waiter.

    They have the right people working there. Hostess to server and all who brought out the food all first class. The food was so delicious. I had a plate of scallops, the swordfish entree, my wife had filet mignon. Drinks and appetizers and dessert all 5 outta 5. The view from the terrace of the sunset while you eat is eye candy.

    Tiger was amazing but food was terrible. So bad neither of us ate it and they took the meals off. Salad was fresh but dressing was very acidic. Gave us a dessert for our anniversary and was yummy. I’d suggest for drink and dessert only with a pretty view
