20年ぶりに伺いました。
お店の雰囲気も変わらず、サービスもとても良かったのですが、年齢が変わったせいか味がどれも濃く感じました。
コースを頂いたのですが、スープ、ラザニアはとても美味しく、メインのコリアンテイストのビーフ、お肉は柔らかくて美味しいのですがコチュジャン風ソースとライスは微妙な味付け。
デザートにコーヒーは付いていなかったので、付けたのですが、コーヒー無くして食べ難い程甘いチョコレートケーキでした。
レンタカーで行ったので、パーキングに。バレーパーキングのみでしたが、高額な飲食代を払ってるのに有料とは少々残念。

I’ve been to Alan Wing’s before, it’s my favorite restaurant in Honolulu. If I had never been there before, I would probably never go back as the service last night was super slow. They were obviously short staffed and the staff that was there were busting it trying to keep up but everything took forever and mistakes were made. I felt bad for them but the quality of service was so far below their usual standard that it was truly disappointing and frustrating.

Despite the wait and the errors, the food was excellent and perfectly prepared. Alan Wong’s still remains my favorite.

We loved Alan Wong's Resturant. Can I give them ten stars. Great drinks and wine. Aaron and the staff had a special menu printed for our special occasion and signed by the staff. This was so thoughtful. Great ahi sashimi appetizer, tender rib eye steak and short rib beef you could cut with a fork. Dessert was also made special. Delicious chocolate mousse. This is a very very special place. We want more. We will be back

MAHALO

We were celebrating a birthday. The birthday person got a special menu signed by the chefs and staff; and a special birthday dessert complete with his name written in chocolate on the plate edge. The signed menu was later scrolled, tied with a bow and presented to the birthday person . The Tasting Menu was excellent, giving us a flavor of all Alan Wong's does best. The service was attentive and excellent. All in all, it was a memorable evening.

Allen Wong’s is listed as a Top 💯 restaurants to eat at before you die, and I have to agree. Very unique dishes clearly well thought out with a fine attention to detail. These aren’t just your everyday dishes, but works of art, appealing to the eye as well as the palette.

If you are in Honolulu, make it a point to include Allen Wong’s on your list of “must do’s”. You won’t be disappointed.

Did the tasting menu. First two courses so not special. (Soup/sandwich and shrimp lasagna.) While the following two courses and dessert were very good, they still didn't justify the premium price point like the River Café, Batard and Daniel would in NYC.

Had the tasting menu. The “soup and sandwich” was creative and fun to eat. Except for the sparkling wine, we found both the wines and the pairings awful. While the courses were interesting, preparation of the dishes was so-so. Service was truly outstanding, so while we didn’t find the food and wine especially wonderful, we still had a good time. Staff there is that good.

Returning to Alan Wong's for the first time in several years to celebrate our anniversary, my wife and I enjoyed our meal but were disappointed that the dinner did not rise to the outstanding level we expected. She had the goat cheese and beet salad followed by ginger crusted onaga. I had the whole tomato salad and pan steamed opakapaka. We shared a pineapple "shave ice" dessert and also enjoyed a complimentary chocolate cake dessert with anniversary greetings beautifully inscribed in chocolate on the plate. Service was great. Alan Wong's was one of the founders of Hawaii regional cuisine, and his restaurant enjoys a reputation as a destination dining experience. Maybe it's just that so many other good places with creative cooking aspirations have opened in the last couple of decades, but this meal, while tasty enough, didn't stand out from the pack. Some of the ingredients that once reflected sparkling originality (li hing mui ume vinaigrette for the tomato salad) now seem like routine localisms. The pineapple dessert was an exception, cleverly conceived and well executed.

日本からの旅行者です。オープンテーブルを利用して予約しましたが、ハワイ到着後、予約確認のため電話したところ、すぐに確認が取れず少し焦りました。
無事確認が取れ、予約当日楽しみにお店に伺いました。
お店の雰囲気は、とても賑わっていて、ホールスタッフもフレンドリーでした。
日本語メニューがなかったので、料理の内容を想像するのが少し難しかったです。
タコス、マグロの春巻き、チョップドサラダをパートナーとシェアし、私はアサリとエビのパスタ、パートナーは牛肉のお料理を注文しましたが、どれも非常に美味しかったです。
パクチーを使った料理がいくつかあったので、苦手な方は注文時に伝えた方がいいかもしれません。
料理だけでかなりお腹がいっぱいになってしまったので、デザートが頼めませんでしたが、多くの方がマンゴーを使ったデザートを注文していて、とても美味しそうでした。
食べ切れなかったメインのお料理はお持ち帰りしましたが、冷めても美味しかったです。
次回ハワイを訪れる機会があれば、また再訪したいです!
