We tried the sundown supper last night. It comes with an appetizer sampler, fish of the day entree, and dessert. Everything was delicious! It was well worth the $40. I would definitely eat here again!

Very nice crew. I really enjoyed the happy hour menu. Only drawback was root vegetables weren’t cooked long enough, too crunchy! Otherwise good!

This hidden gem in Waikiki is completely worth visiting. The staff is wonderful, the food is incredible and we had an amazing anniversary meal and the staff even treated us to a special desert. A must visit when in Hawaii!

Excellent food and service as usual. They start you off with some yummy edamame in a sesame seed sauce. The sundowner supper is an amazing value, so much food and so delicious. Included a pupu sampler, catch of the day cooked in whatever way you want it with a choice of several sauces. Then you get the third course which is a wonderful little dessert. Plus, it was my birthday so they brought me 3 mini scones with berry topping. I would only with that the special Sunset cocktail (with guava and lavender) were always on their special happy hour menu. That would make my experience complete. It's still available, it's just not available for the special happy hour price. The manager remembered us from the last time we were here for our anniversary last month and came over to say "Hi." I love this place, nice and airy lanai, you feel completely safe and pampered. Can't wait to go again for the next special event in our lives.

The ramen was good (me) and not hood (daughter). 😁 Wife liked the taste of her shrimp and scallops but was surprised she had to take the prawn heads off and that there were only 5 pieces total for the price.

We also got a rainbow roll ($24) that was good, and chicken spring rolls ($14 or $16) that were excellent. In general this s place is a bit pricey but usually worth it.

The service was excellent, as usual, and it earned an extra star for overall experience. Really I’d give the experience a 4.5 and the value a 3.5 (for the visit; I’d usually rate it a 4-5). I will definitely be going back since I liked everything. Haha.

It’s always a nice time at EH. Check in took a little longer than usual but wasn’t too bad. We had a really nice table where we could feel the natural breeze. Our server, Kimmy, is amazing. She is wonderful, nice, thorough, quick, and genuine. We will definitely be coming back to try the daily specials!

Overall an average dining experience. My party enjoyed the food, though it wasn't stellar. I had the radicchio salad and there was one limp piece of radicchio on the plate. The Kampachi crudo was very good. Some people have salads for a main course and when the chefs pay little to no attention to the salad it is a big dissapointment.

Felt like our server was catering to the locals over the ones who weren’t from there. She literally asked us where we are from and proceeded to check in and ask for refills at the other tables. We each ordered a sushi roll which took forever to come out. In fact the table next to us who ordered a steak after us came out sooner. The drinks were terrible. I ordered a dirty Marty and it tasted like they threw a shot in a glass and filled it up with the rest of the olive juice from the jar. Not to mention half of the one of the olives was missing.

Food was not worth the price (I guess what do you expect from a mall restaurant.) The menu was not cohesive, and the food conceptually was just a miss. The cocktails were also a disappointment. I have no problem spending decent money on quality food but $48 dollars for the butterfish? It was giving eel bento box.

The saving grace was our server Sasha. Super attentive, and gave customized restaurant recommendations based on our food order!

Sadly, would not recommend the restaurant to anyone.

Inventive food, excellent version of a Caesar--poke was a little tough, but fresh-kampachi(sp?) was a little dry. Good wine btg and drinks. Service was spot on but food came out a little fast. No reason not to go back.
