My wife and I do not normally go to "fancy" restaurants. We are usually just happy staying home or going to one of our regular places. But this was a special occasion (our 11th anniversary) so we decided to give Alan Wongs a try.
The service and the ambiance were terrific, but the food was beyond our expectations. By far the two items that stood out the most were the "Soup and Sandwich" (which we say on Food Network) and the "Seafood Lasagna". WOW is all I can say.
This truly was a wonderful experience and for two people that typically do not do something like this often, you guys hit it out of the park. Thanks!!!!

My meal was delicious and lived up to expectations. My husband was not happy with his entree- the pasta was overcooked.
Service was extremely slow- we waited a very long time for our dinners.

Easy five stars. I got the "menu tasting" option plus an appetizer. Every course and dish was carefully crafted and artfully presented. Alan Wong's is a bit out of the way, being a mile or so away from Waikiki, but it's worth the detour. It wasn't hard to get a table there, but if Alan Wong's was in Waikiki, I have no doubt it would be packed.

Everything was perfect! The kabocha soup was delightful, I have been thinking about how delicious it was and truly want more! I ordered the ginger crusted Onaga, it was wonderful! Another diner ordered ahi and loved her dish. Another diner ordered the steamed fish and was delighted with her dinner. We shared the coconut sorbet dessert, presentation was beautiful and it was DELICIOUS! Our waiter Conner was exceptional, as were the other servers who assisted him. Our dinner was a birthday celebration and they made it so special. Can hardly wait to return!!!

Came on a recommendation, and Chef Wong’s reputation.

My wife and I had the Tasting Menu, and it was fabulous. The flavors, wine pairings, timing, and attention to detail, made it a memorable evening. Well Done!!!

Food very pricey and very good. a little bit inconsistent. my wife ordered the beef ribs. of the two pieces, one was overcook and the other was perfectly cooked. One reason why I chose this restaurant is that they have Onaga fish on their menu - it's one of their signature dishes. I personally would prefer the Onaga to be sautéed with minimal extra flavors; I feel that the restaurant overwhelms the fish with ginger crusting and miso sauce. We weren't impressed with the dessert menu. Their version of "Affogato" is so different that it's confusing (and disrespectful) to call it that: it's got coffee melee, chunks of biscotti, shave ice and a mediocre vanilla ice cream drowning at the bottom.
Service was very good and attentive
Atmosphere. the lighting is all indirect and even, so the tables and food are cast in a uniform shadow. I would have appreciated some lighting on the table to add color and contrast to the dishes -like even a small candle - and to create more of an intimate mood.

It's been almost 10 years since last dining here. A favorite then and good to see that some menu items are still available. Treated my hawaii family to dinner for putting me up while in Kaneohe. All enjoyed the evening!

I dine at AWs once a year and never disappointed. This time the timing of the appetizers and entree was a little too close, possibly needed another 30 minutes between courses. It’s always a little noisy, but who cares. It’s always fantastic to eat there!

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. The restaurant made it extra special with our own menu souvenir and a delightful desert. AND the waiter was very helpful advising menu choices considering my salt sensitivity. We’ll be back!

We celebrated my birthday on our last day in Hawaii. I felt they made the evening special for my birthday. However, our appetizers did come out pretty slow. I did overall enjoy my food.

A friend shared with us that Alan Wong's was running a Pau Hana special for a limited time and we were just blown away by the amazing food, ambience and high level of service we received. The menu choices included some of their customer favorites, such as the ahi and avocado stack, the twice cooked beef brisket, and "the coconut". Our server was very attentive and friendly. He made our evening there extra special. We're looking forward to our next visit!
