    Great service, and certain dishes never disappoint like their risotto. But they didn’t has kusshi oysters this time and their dessert was underwhelming.

    Seated immediately and ordered quickly Food came out in reasonable amount of time Server did not check up on us like he did with the next table - had to flag him down for coffee refill as well as ask for takeout boxes and later a bag to carry out our 2 boxes - other than that the food was quite good - little Noisy when we first got there but later quieted down

    Love the restaurant. Sometimes too noisy/crowded at happy hour. Friendly wait staff. The mochi waffles could be more chewy. Thanks for the nice welcome when checking in.

    We went for happy hour at around 3:30pm on a Sunday. It was not busy and we were promptly seated. During this time, they were only serving the happy hour menu, so we naturally ordered all the food items on the menu haha. Food came out quickly and everything was delicious. The star of the show were the french fries. I do not know what they do to them, but they are so addicting. Maybe they fry them twice? It has the perfect crispy crunch on the outside and soft on the inside. A close runner up was the bone marrow. The amount of bone marrow they give you is ridiculous. I wish they gave more sourdough pieces because three was not enough for the amount of marrow we got. Can't wait to dine again!

    Excellent food, service and value on Thanksgiving. Best kept secret. While so many were paying $150/person for turkey meal, et Al had a superb Thanksgiving plate for $28! Awesome in portion, flavor and mix of white and dark turkey meat. I’m a fan!! Highly recommend!

    Had fun on our date, felt a little rushed thought cause we weren’t able to finish our apps before entrees hit the table. Maybe this is always how they do things but I personally like when the server asks if we’re ready for entree to come out.

    We had dinner and ordered some dishes and drinks. It was very good. Unfortunately, the server’s attitude was insensitive. Although the server made a mistake our bill, it made us feel bad in the end. I took my frind who was from other country to have welcoming dinner, but I felt bad to her to chose here.

    Lovely little spot tucked inside Kahala foodland. A small all-day menu but we’ve been there for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and always found something grest to eat. Even took grandkids for impromptu lunch there one time and was impressed with portion size and quality of the kids menu. Our current favorite items of their clam chowder. They have a full bar and wine list as well. They are getting popular so best to make reservations. The wait staff are particularly friendly and helpful. A great value for your money and whoever created their menu items should be commended!

    Food was really good. Lobster roll is one of the best on the island. Wait help wasn't as good as it could have been. We got our main meal before our appetizer. The person delivering our main food just said that's the way it came out. They were nice enough to cut it in 3's, but no one really ate it and just took it home. At the end of the meal when our wait person asked if everything was okay I mentioned about the appetizer he went in this whole thing about he can't manage that part he just enters the meals in the computer. Kind of went on for a while on this. All I really want was a "sorry". I mean all the excuses he was telling us was kind of ridiculous. I was worked in the restaurant business and I know you could have wanted to the main dish and brought out the appetizer first. I didn't think anything about it but when we were ordering our drinks in the beginning and I asked about the macchiato as I know that Starbucks makes it different than its supposed to be and the waiter went on about it as to put me down. That is how my friends saw it. I would still go back again

    The restaurant itself was very nice and the food was very good. But the service definitely needs some work. We were standing in the front of the restaurant for a while, in full view of the 8 servers in the bar area, before anyone thought to come over. And when they did come over there was no way of greeting, just asking for a reservation which we had and they found hard to find on their part. If the service had just been better it would definitely be a go to place for me. But unfortunately poor service can ruin a whole dining experience.

    The menu was just a little too limited for a dinner menu. One of the f my guests thought he had been given the breakfast by mistake. There was charge to cut the cake we brought, but it took way too long. We were beginning to wonder if they had done something with it in back.

    Nice space with an impressive bar and great service. Would recommend for drinks and splitting the chicken and waffles as an appetizer. Downsides are a very limited menu and hit-or-miss flavors, and the entrance is through a grocery store! Would be better to open the outdoor entrance instead. Bathrooms are shared by the entire shopping center and can only be accessed by getting a keycode, going outside (through the grocery) and being potentially exposed to rain. A few tweaks and this could become a regular go to spot for mid-range classy dining.

    Food selection is small. The entrees: Pork chop delicious, but vegetables poorly cut expensive $31; hamburger tasty not bad for high end hamburger; salad tasty not extraordinary. All is all, nice, but not outstanding. Price wise on the high end for what you get. Service good. Would recommend but look at the menu ahead so you know what the choices are.

    I regularly have breakfast at EtAL. It is always a wonderful experience. I love the food, service and ambiance. The servers are always exceptional. The mochi waffles and avo toast are favorites. My friend was a little disappointed that she couldn't order her favorite salmon toast. I am hoping that it comes back on your menu.
