    This is a very un-Hawaiian place, but also very delightful. It is small and intimate with a nice selection of craft cocktails. Will definitely go back next time I'm in Hawaii.

    The Bartender was very helpful and knew her stuff. when asked for a Shirley Temple she didn't have the exact ingredients and created a drink that was perfect for my NA guest. The food was also excellent. I'll be back soon and would recommend to anyone that loves a good cocktail and good food.

    We went to the Blind Ox last night to celebrate my husband’s new job and to visit with friends we haven’t seen in two years~ the minute we arrived we were happy they provide valet parking (only$5) The hostess was very friendly and showed us to our table ~ our waiter Jared was immediately greeting us and gave us menus and water. Recommend a virgin mock tail for my pregnant friend as well as a sweeter cocktail for my other friend. The drinks were delicious for all of us! As for the food,We ordered pretty much one of everything between our two tables , and shared it all. It was Amazing!! We will definitely be back

    We started out with craft drinks -we both tried Tokyo Nights with Japanese whiskey, yuzu and more ingredients. We loved it because it had the perfect balance of flavors and it wasn't too sweet. Everything we tried was delicious! We had escargot, bone marrow, French onion soup, nori shrimps and king crab tempura. Every dish was tasty and cooked to perfection. The service was spot on. We highly recommend Blind Ox!

    Everything about this place is amazing. Cocktails- wow. Food- incredible. Service- amazing. We had escargot and oh my god the butter was phenomenal all over those snails. We also had the French onion soup- delicious- and split the lobster rolls and the steak. Heaven. The Mr. crack seed cocktail i had was out of this world. Thank you for a great date night!

    This was our second time at Blind Ox. The food and drinks are amazing. My only issues with this visit was our server and the lighting. Our server was not very pleasant to deal with. I don't recall her name. She seemed to not have more than a second to spare every time she was at our table and had a very "better than" attitude. It was very off-putting to our entire group. At one point she delivered drinks and just set them at the edge of the table and walked away. They were for the two of us not sitting at the end of the table, very weird service. My only other issue was the table we sat at had such horrible lighting that it was impossible to read the menu. I love the vibe here, so I wouldn't want bright lights but this particular table was darker than the others. Not a horrible thing, but somewhat challenging, especially with a server who we didn't feel comfortable asking questions. But, like I said, the food and drinks were great and we would definitely come back again.

    Exceptional! Starting with the service- to the delicious food - to the ambiance. The Duck prosciutto with caviar was the perfect starter. Then moved on to the Scotch Quail eggs that were perfect with the Viva La Matcha cocktail. If it’s hot- I suggest you book an indoor table

    Lane was an excellent server like a glove on your hand ( great fit). Very unique dishes served , vert diverse. We have ordered many plates to share and eaten every bit of it. Also, great decor and atmosphere, available valet parking. It was slightly loud but reasonable. Some of the noises were coming from enjoying place customers. Highly recommend!

    Sat outside for dinner aka tapas and every single dish was a home run. The Spanish octopus was incredible with the ceviche being a nice touch. The pickled duo is the perfect appetizer. The standouts of the night was the lobster rolls which had both me and my partner craving more. The steak is out of sight and cooked to perfection and topped with flakey salt. Also do not sleep on the 24k fried chicken, it was great!

    Their “A-5” wagyu was chewy and full of cartilage. Worst wagyu quality ever. Everything lacked seasoning. Disappointed as the food was very expensive. Great service though
