    The restaurant is small, tight, but very aesthetic. The food was okay, overpriced for low quality. The service was the worse service I’ve ever had in my life and I dine in lots of expensive restaurant before. Our server was a male, he was sassy, he raise his voice, and wasn’t very patience with us. I would never come back again. There wasn’t anything special about this place at all and we spent over $600 for tapas size portion. The alcohol drinks are water down, doesn’t have much alcohol in there and it’s also overpriced. We got some nice pictures for the grams but that was about it. Was it worth it? Probably not.

    Ambience is awesome. When you walk in it’s like you’re in another place not Hawaii. Food and drinks are pricey but it would be worth it if the food was delicious, it was not. The food was decent but with the decor and setting being so fabulous the food should leave you feeling like you had an experience. It did not. I’d say it’s worth checking out and have a drink or two. I hope they can improve the menu because this place has potential.

    They were super sweet and really informative when it came to first timers like us! They had valet parking for a reasonable price. Don’t even get me started on the food. You honestly get what you pay for and it was all amazing including the drinks! 100/10 would go again.

    This was our first time to Blind Ox. We would highly recommend it to anyone! The team was very hospitable, the tapas were all delicious, and the cocktails were top of the line. Boo is so passionate about her craft and that passion is exemplified in the delivery of her cocktails. We will definitely be returning on future trips! Thank you!

    I am in love with the Blind Ox! Such a rad environment. We enjoyed the whiskey cocktails, charcuterie, and the steak. I recommend this bar for a date night, catch up with friends, bachelor party, or any special occasion. The bartenders are very knowledgeable.

    This place was extremely overpriced and disappointing. The cocktails tasted like cough syrup and nothing special. The 24k chicken was overcooked, dry and chewy. The salmon mousse served on a soggy cookie and was teeny portions. Best thing were kapachi tacos. Service was good, but it literally hurt to pay top dollar for mediocre food. My husband callled it a scam

    Not sure if I would call it a Speakeasy. There was no secret door or anything. It was just a bar. Only had the creme brûlée so can’t really rate the food but the drinks were yummy. Very expensive but yum.

    Rushed to leave they kept coming to get our card because they wanted us to leAve. We arrived there 1h prior to close and they told us to be out by a certain time, but 30m in, they did last call and then hovered over us until we paid. Underwhelming experience
