Very over priced for the portions but still good tasting food. My server was great and attentive but still probably wouldn’t be enough to bring me back.

Had another good time with great food and service. Appetizers were all tasty and entrees delicious. Miso Cod is a staple and tried the pork chops which were a nice change. The appetizers came out quickly and the main courses were right behind them so very little waiting for the food. Our server (Max) was attentive and always checking to see if we needed anything.

All in all another excellent dinner and we will continue to come everytime we are in Hawaii.!

Went here for a coveted date night with my husband; with few opportunities to get away from the kids the stakes were high for this place to be good! We were not disappointed! Everything we ordered was superb - extremely flavorful and the portions were just right, and the service was perfect. Even though it’s kind of in a weird location in a market/alleyway, I would definitely recommend for a nice dinner out!

Food was excellent. Server was nice but seemed a little stretched. Didn’t get a water refill until after we were finished with our meal. Noted in Open Table that we were celebrating my birthday and the server asked about it and brought out a piece of cake. Nice touch.

The French toast was good. The pancakes were different. I mean being ‘charcoal’ pancakes it’s obviously going to be different, but flavor wise I can’t come up with another word to describe other than different. I had the avocado toast which was good, I give that a 4 out of 5. When our kids were ordering, the way the server was asking about sides or if they wanted any meat made it seem like it came with their meals which it doesn’t. My son is super picky and he didn’t like any of it. The fruit platter was really good though!

For those considering this a foodie destination, you may be half pleased. Foodie is quality ingredients, presentation, ambiance, and service. Basalt only has the first two. It's in the Centric food court behind a partition. The service was slow because there was only one server for 15 tables; he was very friendly and attentive. The bathroom situation is very depressing. I would say avoid this place unless you want to spend twice as much at another finer establishment, or come and just enjoy the food for a reasonable price.

Food was great. Although once we got our food, our server did not tend to us for about 30 minutes. Had to call over another server to order more food.

The place is awesome!! We went to it for brunch and loved it soo much we returned to dinner that night!!! Avocado toast and Mai Thai are the best. Service is also amazing. Believe we had Russell for brunch and Garret for dinner. Both were excellent!!! Great food and great value. Best food we had in Wakiki.

It was a frustrating experience. We were seated right away and we were brought water, and then I think they forgot about us. A waiter who I think had a different section noticed us and asked if we had been helped yet. She took our drink order and was very courteous. We got rolls and butter and had to ask for napkins and silverware. My husband ordered the prime rib and was told 10 minutes later they were out. The food really was good, but it was an awkward service experience. I recognize a lot of places are short staffed right now, but it didn’t seem to be a staffing issue. We won’t be coming back.

This restaurant has received rave reviews, so we went. If you are looking for a nice restaurant with good ambience, this isn't it. It is part of an ABC store and you enter walking thru a maze of take out food outlets. That did it right there!
If you still want to try Basalt, eating outside would be your best bet.

We were seated promptly and enjoyed excellent service by our waitress and her assistants. Food was amazing. I had the spicy Kampachi poke which was delicious and the miso cod perfectly prepared and cooked to perfection. Finished my meal off with the passion fruit creme brûlée which was to die for! Sat outside and although it drizzled a bit the nite was perfect
