    The Copper Bar offers a great tapas experience with wonderful surroundings. It is all open air but the temps are such at night to make it quite comfortable. Food selection is quite good across the Hawaiian themed groups and the service was good. I think everyone is trying to get back to pre Covid expectations. I would recommend Copper Bar if you are in the area or staying T any of the Westin / Marriott properties.

    Copper Bar is our favorite Mauna Kea restaurant. It’s the perfect place to get immediately in an Island mood. Delicious cocktails, music and food with a gorgeous view.

    The meat in the bolognese was poor quality (undercooked/tough to chew), and undercooked pasta noodles, too. 5⭐️ service though. Pineapple crumble was also underdone (watery).

    We love the Mauna Kea Hotel so it goes without saying our expectations are high. Great service and beautifully crafted plates. This is not the hotel’s flagship restaurant but it definitely doesn’t disappoint. Wonderful decor and view with cultural entertainment that’s just right. We repeatedly visit here for both small family meals and larger friend parties.

    I didn't get my food until my husband was finished. They messed up the first order, then gave me a obviously burnt dinner. Then by time they made another Flatbread, by husband was done eating. However, when we did get our dinners, they were good.

    Large group behind us with kids running around and yelling for almost our entire dinner lowered the rating. Food was very Good but we waited an hour for our meals…had to ask 3 times for a condiment. Great ambiance without the rowdy kids-thought the Copper “bar” was more of an adult dining experience.

    People at our resort recommended Copper Bar and it did not disappoint. We are on our honeymoon and this has been the most romantic place to watch the sunset as of yet! Breathtaking views of the beach and sunset. Ambiance and service was beyond compare. And the icing on the cake wasn’t the dessert (although fabulous), it was seeing the manata’s right off of the edge of the rock!! Highly recommend for romance, cocktails and dinner at sunset and to walk the beach.

    In all a good place for dinner. Nice sunset views, good breezes keep it cool, we had the perfect table which blocked the heat of the setting sun. Servers were nothing but professional and polite. Food did take a while to show up. Close to 45 min from time we ordered till we got appetizers. Food showed up one hour and ten min after ordering. If you want to enjoy the ambiance, it was great. If you want a quick meal, this is prob not the place for you. Food was great tho, except for the steak we ordered. Medium but not even a hint of pink on the meat! But with the amt of time it took, wasn’t about to point it out.
