Rooted in the local farm-to-table movement — a place where seasonality and culinary tradition are celebrated in tandem.

One part Hawaii and one part Brooklyn. The atmosphere shares a brasserie feel with a laid-back island sensibility—a celebration and homage to all of our favorite things we enjoy eating and drinking.

Crafted with brick & reclaimed wood, our urban Hawaiian farmhouse features an open kitchen, lush plant wall, brick walls, and lots of natural light in a historic Chinatown building. The bar mixes classic and modern cocktails with artisanal flare with a well-curated wine list.

I love everything about Fete. The space is gorgeous, simple, and inviting. The staff is stellar and always answers our questions and takes great care of us. And the food -- every dish we have ordered has always been superb. They make such a great effort to use fresh, locally produced ingrediants. And the best item on the menu -- the Rocky Road to Hana ice cream! Give Fete a try, you will not be disappointed.

Though there are not many customers in the restaurant, The food was served very slowly and my chicken dish was well overcooked, almost burnt. The server was very nice though.

We had a wonderful evening at Fete! The food was so delicious with some unexpected combinations. We loved the appetizer special - chicken liver pate with a tart cherry compote. Lots of great Gin drinks and all of our entrees were so tasty! Ended with the olive oil cake which was just the right finish to a wonderful meal!

Fete never disappoints and our meal on Father's day was no exception. So many specials offered we wanted to order everything. Accommodated my special requests with grace as well. My favorite restaurant in Honolulu!!!

Due to safety distancing, we were seated in the Library. The Library is upstairs. A quieter and more intimate atmosphere than the main dining room.

Excellent food and selections from which to choose. Rather pricey wine list. Service was a bit disorganized as a result of the COVID-19 shutdown but eventually we got everything. Did I say the food was outstanding? It was. Really. We’ll definitely return when next we’re on Oahu.

This is a great little restaurant with delicious, locally-sourced food. Our friends at Mohala Farms deliver kale, parsley, and other greens to them. We enjoyed our meal a lot.

The staff was great. Amazing cocktails, the yuzu grenadine in the clover club was the perfect twist on my favorite cocktail. Everyone on staff helped recommend and ensure we had everything we could have wanted. The sorbet was a perfect final touch. Thanks for everything!

This was the first place we picked to eat out after everything open up. The servers seemed sincerely excited to see everyone. The Prawn appetizer was simply amazing. I would highly recommend. After much deliberation I had the scallops special and I’m so glad I did. They were cooked perfectly. My husband had the steak with the Gorgonzola sauce which was also very good. We have already picked out what we are going to have when we go back!

Food & drinks are AMAZING!!! You can tell the owners love what they do, you can tell the servers, cooks, and bartenders are dedicated professionals.

Favor: PLEASE bring back the German potato salad that used to be served with the schnitzel! I was stationed in Germany it was the perfect compliment to that crispy, delicious schnitzel.

Love you guys, you work so hard & we’ll continue to support!

Fete is one of our favorite Honolulu restaurants. And we liked the less crowded space due to the pandemic. Food is fantastic. My only hesitation is that our waiter was not interested in helping us select a bottle of wine. Fortunately, we randomly chose something we ended up liking. This won’t stop us from returning because we know we will always have a great meal there.

Food and drink at Fete has always been their forte. They have kept up their game after the lockdown. Our steak, fried chicken and schnitzel were superb as are the new cocktail menu (love the new-style Cosmo) and, for course, the friendly service. Most importantly, to ensure the safety of customer and employees, social distancing and face coverings are followed. And for those who prefer open air dining, the new sidewalk tables are a great addition. While we enjoyed Fete's take out menu, nothing beats in-restaurant dining. Welcome back!

Overall dinner was great. Every dish we ate was delicious. Only downside was the level of service. There was only one waiter on staff for the entire dining room and as a result their customer service suffered. Drinks took a while to make it table and if you needed anything, you would have to wave the waiter down. If not for this...definitely 5 stars.

Fete finally opened their doors after a forced hiatus due to the Corona virus. My wife and I have not eaten in a restaurant for over three months. We knew that if anyone could work out the incredible hard logistics of opening a restaurant that will be able to adhere to the most stringent state guidelines and still make everyone happy it had to be Chuck Bussler and his wife and head chef Robynne Maii..And boy did they pull it off. Less tables, staff wearing face masks, a slightly smaller menu and wine list BUT still impeccable service and of course some of the best food this side of Williamsburg/Greenpoint Brooklyn. We had Crab Toast: In the style of shrimp toast. More flavorful. Mahi Mahi Saltimbocca:with prosciutto, pesto and pan fried potatoes. Cavatelli with mushroom, light lemon, saffron & regiano. And a great Vouvray from the Loire Valley. It’s good to be back home.

Expected a few hiccups on their post pandemic opening but did enjoy most of the food although a little pricey.
Steaks were not quite there yet but understand it will be up to par soon. Wait service was a bit lacking but enjoyed chatting with the older bus help fellow and what appeared to be the manager or owner. Place is cute and fits that downtown vibe. Wishing them luck and improvement as we hope to see all our small businesses recoup their recent downturns.

Fete: OMG! This place is truly legit. Our first visit here and we were beyond pleased with everything. Service/staff/food, every aspect was so "on point". Josh (our server) was very attentive. He helped us by being so easy to talk to and gave us some recommendations. Chuck (owner), who was working the front of house, greeted us with a warm welcome and smile.. He also stopped by our table check on us. Such a nice personal touch.

Everything was sooooo good, we will definitely need to come back to try more.

We loved our dinner at Fete this week. The staff were all so welcoming, and it truly was the best meal we had in Hawaii in our entire 2 and 1/2 week visit across Kauai, Maui and Oahu. Prawns with toasted coconut and lime leaves were spectacular - so fragrant and delicious! Gyoza with foie gras and loquat jam were lovely. For dessert, we shared a single scoop of Rocky Road to Hana ice cream, a rich chocolate perfect finish.
Highly recommend!
