    Et Al is a modern , sophisticated and Chef inspired Restaurant. I have dined at Et Al on several occasions and each time I am amazed at the wonderful creations on their menu . We were greeted by CJ and so personable and friendly . CJ chose a wonderful table for us and presented the menu . My friend chose the Special which was grilled octopus with tomato and garlic sauce . She also had the oysters ( for Starters ) Et Al Chop salad was simply amazing with avocado , feta and bacon pieces served with Sherry vinaigrette dressing. I had the tagliatelle with prosciutto, split pea and mint leaves was truly so flavorful and delicious. James was our server for the evening and he was very humorous and personable . He suggested many great selections on the menu. For dessert was lychee sorbet and mango sorbet I highly recommend dining at Et Al for those farm to table Chef inspired dishes . Thank you for a wonderful evening . Excellent staff and amazing selections of chef inspired dishes . Aloha and mahalo

    8/10/2022 Delicious food as always. Tonight’s service seemed understaffed. Over 20 minutes to get a glass of wine. No reason or acknowledgment was given by the manager when he delivered the glass of wine himself as to why the drinks came late. Appetizers (oysters) and main dish came at the same time. Glass of wine was delivered after the food was served.

    Our greeting was a little cold and rude. We were given random utensils to accompany our dishes. Had to ask for plates to share multiple times. Dessert stated a basil garnish but was garnished with cilantro. Chocolate Mac nut tart was ordered and we got a chocolate mousse like dessert with lilikoi sauce… no macnuts. Nicest encounter with staff was when I asked a girl near the hostess stand for the bathroom code.

    This is my second time eating from Et Al. but my first time dining in. The food and service were on point. We ordered the garlic chicken and Mochi waffles and the mushroom risotto. Both were delicious! We also ordered Italian cream sodas with peach syrup and those were tasty and refreshing. Et Al. is definitely on my list of “go-to’s” for brunch/lunch ♥️

    Mushroom risotto is always fantastic. They recently changed their menu, adding on more items, but they took off the scallops! Overall great place to meet friends or clients!

    Excellent cocktails, food and wine list. Service was great. I had the pork chop which was excellent, but the veggies had been sautéed in balsamic vinegar and there was a little too much balsamic. Instead of seasoning the veg, the veg was almost swimming in it. Still good though as the balsamic was reduced, thick and sweet, and worked good for dipping the pork chop in it. All and all a great experience.

    this is my go-to sunday brunch for my girlfriend and I. we love the choices (even though we keep getting the same thing!) and the service is fabulous. it's a small setting, so the noise level is usually minimal. the location also allows us to get some leisurely marketing done afterwards. highly recommended.

    After we were seated we waited for over 10minutes to be served water and utensils. This was after my wife went up to one of the waiters to ask to be served. The waiter did not react immediately and it took a few minutes before someone came over. The restaurant was busy but not overly busy. There were lots of open seats at the counter and bar. The chef is outstanding and should be congratulated for his care and love that he put into the food. This is why we continue to return.

    The food was good and our server, Rachel was very kind and attentive. There are no restrooms in the restaurant and the one near coffee bean requires a code. I suggest asking the wait staff for the code when you first sit down. I’m not sure if this man was the manager or supervisor (didn’t get his name) but he was in a black shirt. He came to our table while we were having a conversation and really didn’t say as much as a hello to get our attention and somewhat butted in. He also seemed slightly rude instead of courteous. I could have read him wrong but his demeanor was in stark contrast to Rachel’s warm and kind attitude.

    The lobster roll was very hard to eat, maybe need two bread to sandwich the lobster? And I wasn't fond of the seasoning on the lobster, I was just hoping for a simple lobster roll, clean and fresh with a little lemon juice on it. It doesn't need all the extra seasoning and it was a little overcooked. The fries were excellent though.

    Service has gone down. Not sure what’s going on. We had to ask for water and it took so long to get the waitress to come by. And the waitress didn’t check on us throughout the service not once except to ask if we wanted more drinks (that’s how they make money)

    This was our second time at the same corner table which seems to be for new servers in training?? Food always on point, but service not up to par. Our server did not ask if I wanted anything to drink besides water after my companion ordered a glass of wine. We had to flag him down to get water refills. After lunch, we ordered espresso with sugar and he brought white sugar. We asked for brown, seeing it in cups on the bar two feet away. He said no problem and took off to other side of the room. Espresso getting cold so we swiveled around and picked up one of the cups from the bar and were drinking it when he returned. Last concern was seeing several servers brushing hair off their faces. We enjoy coming to Et Al, but will definitely not sit at that table again.

    Food quality is fairly consistent. Flavor and presentation on point. Service on this visit was very good. Sometimes I had been hit or miss. We had a new server (he told us that he was new when we had asked about a menu item that he wasn’t yet family with), but he was very attentive and continued to check on us throughout the meal.

    Food was awesome. I had the et al G & T cocktail. Tasty and light. Very photogenic. I made up my entree with two appetizers. 1) Bone marrows and 2) Beets. Perfect. My husband had lobster roll and fries. Very few places in town serve it. A little non-traditional and my husband kept looking for more mayonnaise which our server was happy to provide upon request. Wine pout was a little small but bar is impressive. Unfortunately, we sat next to a boisterous trio who damaged the overall ambiance. Servers very skillfully let them know they’d have to wrap it up by the next reservation.
