Overrated. Past it’s prime. There are much more interesting and inventive restaurants in Honolulu today. Food was good but not worth the hype. This was our third visit so comments not arbitrary.

Pork shrimp dumplings did not wow. Red snapper was delicious. Salmon over risotto was too fishy for my husband

So relaxing. We just had some champagne at the bar and there was no stress about getting to our table. Dinner was amazing especially the short ribs, which we ordered with the stir fried vegetables rather than rice. We were sad that the tomato salad was not available. Great service at both bar and table.

Outstanding meal and impeccable service from all of the staff, but particularly Mark, the sommelier, and Aaron, our server. We both ordered the Prix Fixe menu, one with the wine pairings and one without.

Service is awesome! Food is delicious and creatively presented. I went with a group of 10; I would suggest not more than a party of 6, as Alan's space is more on the intimate/close side. But fine if group is small. Save room for dessert. After dinner (de-caf) coffee is a special roast - and delicious.

The entire staff was very attentive and super nice! The food was excellent. I have food sensitivities and the chef prepared me a delicious meal to accommodate my needs. Connor, our waiter, was excellent. We were celebrating my daughters birthday and my son’s college graduation and the staff made them feel very special and even made them a delicious, personal dessert! Stellar experience! Thanks.

Although opentable only allows a maximum of a table for 10, calling the restaurant, they had all our reservation information and easily accommodated changes in our numbers up to 13 then down to 11 and also accommodated one minor substitution to the ‘fixed’ menu for our group

Service and food were excellent as always. However, the kitchen was slammed by a full house and lots of big groups. Reservations at 8:00 pm on a week night, seated promptly at a nice table, and drink orders taken in timely manner. We had ample time to peruse the menus, and placed our orders within a reasonable time. However, our appetizers weren't served until about 9:00 pm. We finished dinner around 11:00 pm. Our wait help was attentive and did apologize for the delays in getting the food out.

Despite the timing, our group of 9 had a great time, and we'll definitely be back!

Definitely special occasion dining. The entire experience is that of local fine dining experience.
We enjoyed the exemplary service and exceptional cuisine.
My wife had a delicious Asian slaw and a perfectly prepared salmon.
I had a fantastic stacked Ahi, avocado, salsa, and wonton appetizer. My main dish was a local ginger crusted Onaga. It was absolutely perfect.
The sommelier knew his craft well. I had a delightful red flight that included a Beaujolais, a California Syrah, and a funky Lebanese Bordeaux type wine.
The restaurant is on a busy Honolulu downtown street on the third floor of a nondescript building. They have valet parking on site which proved to be very convenient as it was raining buckets the evening we went.
we sat in The indoor lanai which had a nice view of the Mountains in the distance (as well as of the neighborhood).
Overall, a highly enjoyable experience, I would try the prix fixe menu next time, but the entire table of diners must do the same.
Keep up the great work!

As a highlight of our Waikiki stay a dinner at this restaurant was the best choice I made! The food and service was great. The wines served by the glass, both white and red were both unique and flavorful.
