We had such a great time at Alan Wong’s, sad to see it closed. The food was absolutely delicious and service was amazing.

The “SOUP AND SANDWICH” was great. The best grill cheese steak sandwich I had. The Miso marinated butterfish was good. I was disappointed in their twice cooked short ribs. At least the Okinawa purple sweet potato cheese cake made it up. This restaurant was over hyped. I would most likely not come back.

Haven't ate here in over 10 years. Food is still as bomb as I remember. Maybe a better view would've been cool. Besides that, service and food was nothing short of exceptional. Mahalo

During the pandemic and against guidance, somewhat concerned that customers were entering and being seated without wearing a facemask. They walked right past our table a foot away. This gave us an uneasy feeling. The food and service was great.

The greatest dining experience in Honolulu. They took the steps to ensure safety down to the valet. The menu was perfect and they had many options to select for the four course meal. I will definitely return to Alan Wong’s.

This was our inaugural post lockdown dining adventure and it was exceptional indeed! We’ve dined here on several occasions in the last but this was over the top with delicious food, wonderful service and every aspects of the experience. Wine pairings with ‘Tasting Menu’ was delightful.

You can’t go wrong when you dine at Alan Wong’s. The food is always great...absolutely delicious...and the people are really nice! They had a Prix Fixe menu which still offered great selections to choose from.

I actually like the “social distancing” set up as it adds to a more formal dining experience. Previously, I thought the seating was too close and the noise level could get “chinese restaurant” level...which is how I also felt at Roy’s in Hawaii Kai. (Sorry.)

But really...Alan Wong’s...one of Hawaii’s BEST dining experiences!

My hubby and I were anxious to start dining out. This COVID isolation was getting tiresome. Our first choice was Alan Wong's. We were the only guests there at 5:45 p.m. but the restaurant did an excellent job of social distancing and still giving us awesome service. The food was as usual excellent! It was a prefixed 4-course menu which gave us a variety of choices for each course. By the time we left, there were 14 guests which were all social distanced perfectly! My hubby and I had a wonderful evening! Please do not hesitate about going there. They do an excellent job in all areas of social distancing!

We dine out frequently, locally and globally. Our experience was exceptional here. The food was meticulously prepared and served, from apps to deserts. So much care was taken in every single morsel. Wonderful wine parings. An amazing experience.

Wonderful food and attentive food service. Surprising range of offerings on the four course menu, including the favorites I was hoping for. Great , enjoyable experience. Expensive but worth every penny. COVID and social distancing safety well observed.

Of course the food was excellent. What set this visit apart was the excellent service. Mr. Shishido is an accomplished sommelier. He served a our wines with great expertise. Our waitress was also terrific. She knows the menu well and was pleasant and very efficient.

Our 10th anniversary dinner. My wife is a vegetarian, so most places have one or two options for her and she chooses one and is usually disappointed. Alan Wong’s is the exact opposite of that. We both had the 5 course menu sampler, and they substituted the proteins with appropriate choices. We couldn’t believe it. Amazing! Normally when a restaurant caters to vegan or vegetarians, they flippantly create some terrible tofu dish. This was awesome (her words) EVERY course. Including the desserts. The service was second to none! Big thanks to Aaron and Jennie for the awesome experience! We’ll be back next visit for sure!Mahalo! 😊🤙🏻

I was not prepared for how delicious and rich the food was going to be! We had a great date night, and the butter tasting had me over the moon... I LOVE butter! It was a unique tasting that I would reccomend again. The staff were all very friendly, even the patrons were lovely ‐ we ran into one the following day shopping.
