The word BASALT evokes strength, solidity, and a sense of place… a reference to our Hawaiian roots. BASALT reflects our indigenous grey rock, formed by lava and formed by fire. It is the bedrock of our Islands and the unifying organic thread between our diverse communities. It is this underlying force that informs our purpose here at BASALT.

BASALT is a Waikiki restaurant that embraces our local Island culture. We salute our life-long heritage of multiculturalism. And yet, we love to introduce unique ways to look at local cuisine by introducing International flavors and unusual pairings to intrigue and delight our guests.

BASALT’s aim is to involve you, excite you, and captivate you. Our Asian-influenced Global cuisine will consistently remind you of why the Hawaiian Islands are a special place of Aloha… to be, experience, and love.

Wonderful, Fantastic and Consistently Delicious! I can’t say enough about what a wonderful time my guests and I had at Basalt. Everything was cooked to perfection from the New York steaks to the Miso Butterfish to the seafood combo. The appetizers were cooked just right (pork belly buns, Adobe chicken wings, lobster bisque, etc). The service was top notch - we were never forgotten by staff and checked on regularly. The live music was a very nice touch - and the ambiance was relaxing. We will definitely be back to Basalt soon.

Service was great here! We got the loco moco, ahi sandwich, sunburst drink, and passion lemonade and finished it all (we usually cannot finish a meal). My favorite was how crispy the fries were. Would definitely come back.

I had the fixed menu, lobster bisque, miso black cod and chocolate cake. I think it is a bit too pricey for the amount and quality but maybe the rest of the menu might be more appealing.

Basalt offered a prix fixe menu option which we took advantage as it included a starter, main dish, and dessert for a really good price compared to regular menu items. We thought the mixed drinks were okay but a little pricey. Our waiter, CJ, was attentive and provided good service.

This restaurant sits to the side of an upscale specialty food and bevarage market which took away from the ambiance of a nice dining experience. We were early diners so the restaurant was empty when we arrived and was slowly starting to fill as dinner progressed. Basalt had live music which we did enjoy. Overall we would recommend this restaurant.

We didn't realize just how enjoyable our brunch would be at Basalt. The food was prepared flawlessly and the service by our waitress named Thuy was the best ever. We will be back soon!

Went here to celebrate Valentines Day. Glad we did! Service and food were excellent. We went with the Prix Fixe dinner menu, and at 48 per person was a steal. The ny steak and desserts were excellent. Will definitely recommend this to family and friends, and will definitely be back.

Food was good overall. Good lobster bisque. Great mixed green salad. Wife's prime rib was very tasty. But my macadamia nut crusted Mahimahi was bland because the sauce and capers didn't add much to the normally bland flavor of the Mahi. But it was cooked perfectly and the starch and veggies were excellent. Oh, I really liked the carbon black bread rolls. In fact, my other complaint was that the server did not bring more bread rolls as he said that he would.

But I would definitely go back for another dinner. The prices were reasonable for a fine dining restaurant in Waikiki. Service was good (except for my bread rolls), and the live music was a plus.

Food is excellent and service is good. Outside seating is not always relaxing as there is a lane right next where delivery trucks pass by.

The restaurant has a nice selection of choices but there were 3 in our party and all three meals were bland and tasteless. Things like salt and sweetener had to be requested multiple times.
This is not a restaurant that I would recommend or return to

The restaurant is in an area with a group of retail food eateries like a bakery, gelato, rotisserie chicken/pizza. It’s a little confusing of a configuration. The wait at the host stand was somewhat long.

I love dining here for brunch & dinner. The food is always delicious, the cocktails refreshing, the coffee is smooth, and the staff is friendly. But more importantly, I think, is the atmosphere. It is open and welcoming. Basalt is a lovely oasis from a harried day that allows you to breathe for a moment and just be you.

As two women we were seated by the kitchen door. When we protested we were the seated outside with the smell of pot and garbage. 5 minutes later two men we seated indoors (as we requested) at a nice table. We had reservations. We decided to leave with eating dinner. I was not going to purchase overpriced food from this place.
