The restaurant looks nice. Good service. Food was 6.5 out of 10. Maybe we didn't order the right one

Our meal for 3 at Assagio Kahala was very good. Our waiter was not very personable and communicative - too bad because I would have left a larger tip!

Went there for a last minute dinner. The chef specials looked good to try and so I ordered that. Not sure if the waitress was having a tough work day, but she messed up my order and the bill.

Terrible service and the food wasn’t as good as it usually is. Used to be a favorite place but will not be going back anytime soon. I don’t know if the management has changed. There definitely wasn’t enough wait staff and the bus boys kept trying to take our plates away when we clearly weren’t finished. One guy tried to take away our plates at least FOUR times while we were still eating!

We loved the Caesar Salad (prepared fresh, table side) and our pasta dishes excellent! Baked eggplant, the other eas mushrooms & basil, outstanding! Great service, easy, free parking. (Did I mention how great their bread is, with delicious, soft butter)

I’ve been to Assagio’s many times and quite a fan. The food is good, ambience is nice, and usually the service is great. This last experience was a little underwhelming. Although the food was delicious, our server not only got 2 if our orders wrong but failed to check back with our table. Requests for take home boxes were made and they never came. The person who was clearing off the plates from our table noticed and ended up boxing the extra food for us. I am not quite sure what may have happened but it wasn’t a particularly busy night and the group a few tables away from us were checked on regularly.

Good staff, good quality food at a fair price, and a nice quiet atmosphere. I had chicken Parmesan with a side of spaghetti. My pasta was a bit overcooked (not al dente) but it tasted good and my chicken Parmesan was tasty also.

Hello
We had reservations to dine at Asiago on Saturday night. This was not our first time to dine at this location.
We were seated within 5 minutes of arrival. Water, bread and butter were brought within a few minutes. After 20 minutes we still had not had anyone come to our table to take our for drinks or food.
A manager was found and his reply was “we’re slammed tonight “.
After another 5 minutes we left the restaurant. When we informed the front desk we received “sorry”

Maybe it was an off night. Usually the service and food is superb. Tonight the chicken was dry and over cooked. We were seated in a section with 1 waiter. Understaffed tonight, so it was not a terrific experience.

Didn't like how our table directly faced the entry door—we saw everyone coming in and going out. I think there could have been some kind of screen there for a little more privacy. Our waiter was great. My entree was mediocre, though my husband's was ok.

I've always loved the Assaggio restaurants. When they opened this location, I was skeptical. It is now my favorite. Although the Koko Marina location is closer, the Bistro far surpasses it in all areas. The employees are truly nice, helpful, knowledgeable, down to earth and accommodating, and the food is better. The only downsides are the parking can be inconvenient. There is valet if the small parking lot is full - but even then, the valet helpfully told us parking is available next door. In fact, the valet was just as friendly as the inside staff - wishing us a happy new year and asking if we enjoyed our visit. The other downside are the acoustics in the main dining area. It can get very loud. But parking and noise are inconsequential compared to all the pluses. Plus, we were able to get last minute reservations via Open Table!
