I didnʻt have high expectations for a restaurant that is part of a grocery store chain. So I was pleasantly surprised by the menu, service and execution of drinks and food. Well-rounded yet well-edited menu that hit all the marks (for me) for a pleasant, reliablle neighborhood restaurant. Hostess needs a little more experience. Cavatelli with octopus and chorizo was delicious and server Kyle was affable and just attentive enough. I originally wanted to go to Et Al because there was a certain cheese I wanted to buy in the market. The market closed before I could get the cheese—but turned out to be worth it for the food.

My friend and I went for lunch. The Hamakua mushroom risotto was the best I ever had, here and on the mainland. Very tasty with lots of mushrooms and without being too rich. We also went for the lobster roll, but they didn't have lobster that day. They substituted it with king crab instead. Very good! The bread that it came in was toasted and so good! Generous with the crab meat. Lots of parking. It's a little pricey but worth it. Recommended!

Had the rib special - super ono. Shoestring fries nicely prepared. Side salad nice and fresh; dressing so-so. Really appreciate the French and Italian wine offerings. Service still needs work - especially on remembering things, like to bring the wine!

Father’s Day breakfast. Friendly staff, service was great, and food was delicious and fresh. Portion of food was just right and free refills on their drip coffee. The avocado toast was big enough for two to share along with our breakfast order. Very nice way to start a special day.

This was my fifth time dining at Et Al and I'm finding the service and the food to not only be very good, but also very consistent.

I think my only complaint is that there aren't enough vegetarian dishes on the menu. I was dining with two vegetarians and they remarked that although their food was very good (mushroom risotto), there weren't many items on the menu for vegetarians.

Overall the experience was good.
However, crab was substituted for lobster in their lobster roll the day we went.
They also charge an extra fee if you substitute a salad for their old bay potato chips.
Service was excellent.
Food was delicious!

I’ve been to Et al several times for happy hour which is excellent. Today we tried two pastas. The sauce was tasty but the pasta was over cooked, which was very disappointing.

I arrived early, but knowing the system and how they have to accommodate the e patrons I still felt comfortable.
I live on the other side of kahala MKt by Foodland and always enjoy eating at et.al. I just wish we could sit at the bar when we wait

This was my third time to the restaurant. Previous two times were excellent, but this time the food was very disappointing. It wasn't consistent and the chicken with waffle is over priced. Seventeen dollars for A piece of chicken with three waffles and very salty grave.

Previous waiters were prompt and met our needs, but this time...it seems the wait staff are all new? They seemed to be pausing quite a bit (not know what is their next step.) I understand, they are young and in the process of learning.

I hope you can be up to par again.

Very pleased with our visit. Everything we ordered was delicious. Mushroom risotto was rich and savory. Short rib arancini had great texture, crunchy on the outside and tender short ribs inside topped with a flavorful pesto sauce. We had other dishes that was also great. Customer service was just as great as well as the cocktails we’ve had. Will be returning for sure

When we arrived they informed me that my reservation was for only 2 people not 3 but they would accommodate new if I would wait. I pulled up my reservation showing it was for 3 people. They sat us at the bar after waiting 15 minutes and then later to our table for dinner. They were very nice once I showed them my confirmation. I don’t know how they could have the wrong information

This is the 2d time I’ve eaten at et al. The food and cocktails are simply outstanding in every respect. The service is impeccable and friendly. The wine list is superb. It’s not cheap eats but the value is high. Keep up the good work. This is my new favorite restaurant and the fact that it’s close to home is a ++.

Excellent venue for business breakfast. So challenging to find a good venue for breakfast to host a professional working breakfast in Hawaii. Parking is great, food is delicious with many options for light or heavy breakfast fare, super quiet venue to facilitate conversation. Service was fast and respectful -- did not interrupt a bunch of times to refill water/etc -- but attended to our needs just fine. For such a great location and good food I expected to pay high prices, but the prices were very reasonable. Will definitely come here again for future business meals for sure!

Food was excellent. Service was good, but the bar was really slow with our drinks. Noise level was way too loud. We were seated in a corner but the party of 6 near us was extremely loud and we had to shout to each other to be heard. I know this is not the restaurant's fault but it made us leave as soon as we finished so we could go somewhere else to get a quiet drink and talk in a normal level.

Despite the rude customers next to us, I have already recommended et al to others because the food was outstanding.
