"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.
One of the best meals I’ve ever had! Came in for Valentine’s Day for a pre fixe menu at $75 per person. So much food and everything was impeccable! Truly divine. From the 4 creative appetizers to the decadent entrees and 3 (yes, 3!) mind-blowing desserts, every bite was a dream! I’ve always loved Fête but this puts them at the top of my list.
Try the cocktails! Delish! We also enjoyed the locally sourced menu, including the most scrumptious risotto.
Greeting polite and cheerful. Service Attentive throughout the meal The beat salad and schnitzel plate were delicious. Generous portions. Very enjoyable meal.
Always an enjoyable meal backed with great service and amazing food and variety.
Super good. Got recommended by a local friend to eat here. Glad we did. Rocky road ice cream changed my life.
Food and service great, but ambience hurt by proximity to next table and the need for everyone to shout to be heard.
Quinoa Cakes.....a spicy surprise. The Local Iʻa Salad.....I love seared ahi and this combined with an amazing mix of greens .....over the top.
Had the rigatoni. Nice size portion, meat was tender and sauce was rich. Ricotta was in more of a cream form. Usually not a fan of ricotta but this added another level of richness to the dish. Service was great and fast too!
Fete is one of my favorite restaurants in town. Our company visits often for business lunches. I enjoy that they make seasonal changes to the menu. I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant!
Great for a business meeting when it’s not too crowded. Great service, food and ambiance. Great for business lunch and pleasure.
Every single course was incredible! Must try their homemade Rocky Road and the carbonara with Portuguese sausage was SOOOO DELICIOUS!
Ordered the lamb special and the red snapper special without really checking the price.
Surprised to have paid that much. I thought it would have been $7 -10 less for each of us. I would reconsider my next reservation based on that. Rather than dining 4 or 5 times per half-year there, I will probably cut that in half.
Chinese New Years. Year of the Pig. Most non Chinese restaurants were closed. Those that were opened and non Chinese were mostly empty. Fete was PACKED.
After watching the show we headed to Fete. Reservations needed! Fete was totally packed. One server called in sick. The machine that sends the tickets to the chefs was dysfunctional for a short time. Fete NEVER LOST A BEAT. What a staff and what a menu.
Great food and atmosphere. Very attentive and helpful service. Very much enjoyed it.
Outstanding food and service
Vastly overpriced mediocre food. I will not be returning.
We enjoyed the dinner. Flavors are good as is the service.
Food and service was to notch! Will come back again.
Fantastic dishes of healthy locally sourced food spiced to create wonderfully original flavors. Excellent wines. A china town treasure
Robins food is always spot on, if you haven't eaten there yet go!
Excellent service, wonderful menu.
Interesting menu. Can’t wait to go back.
First time at FETE! Got seated immediately at a choice spot. Our server was very knowledgeable and personable which made the experience more special for our Anniversary. The food was very well presented, flavors popped smiles were had! Would definitely recommend and go back again!
We had an excellent meal with great service! Each dish was so delicious and presented I a elegant manner. It was a totally enjoyable experience. We will be back.
Awesome food. Fantastic service. Staff is so friendly and welcoming. Food came out super fast. Would definitely come back!
For me, Fete is the tops. I can depend on consist and excellent food quality. Great job using locally sourced foods. Dishes are flavorful and presented beautifully with much care and thought. I feel pampered, looked after, a "want to return" dining experience . Atmosphere is welcoming and warm, owners do their personal best to ensure customer satisfaction.
Honestly, people I've come with are always impressed with Fete
Really the best of the best. Having had over 50 meals at Fete since it opened, my wife and I can honestly say there is not one negative thing concerning Fete. Transport Fete to Greenpoint or Williamsburg Brooklyn and you would need to make reservations at least one month in advance. The only place in Hawaii to get pristine east coast oysters. The best creative fish on Oahu and the best wine list outside of NYC. Robynne and Chuck Bussler have created a Mecca towards creative but relaxing cuisine.
Great dinner - excellent food and service, great wine list, nice room but maybe a bit noisy where we were seated. Did I mention the terrific food? Afterwards, several indicated that their fish course was the best they had ever eaten.
So good for any occasion. My man will dream about the burger! Our server was so sweet as well!!
It was very interesting to see the view from counter and watch sous chef and other chef assistant to prep the food we were to eat. I was shocked to see that 1 or 2 of the chefs were eating the food as part of their lunch such as the french fries or the pasta from the bowl they had prepared for the customer's meals. Is that standard practice for ALL hip / upcoming restaurants?
Food was pretty good, but buttermilk fried chicken was tough/over cooked. Accompanying jam was delicious.
Didn’t care for the “library” room we were taken to since our table wasn’t quite ready.
Don't miss an opportunity to dine at Fete. We dine out a lot and Fete is still at the top of our list in Honolulu. Every dish is excellent. The simplest dishes, like pasta, become interesting at Fete. Food is hearty and creative at the same time, which is not an easy feat for a chef. Everything should be tried --- the smoked ahi, three spreads and grilled octopus are terrific appetizers. In addition to the pastas, the fried chicken is becoming famous and the fish is always fresh and done perfectly. Chuck's wine list is just as creative, with wines you would not expect a small restaurant to acquire and offer. He is doing something very, very right.
It was a very busy night and we sat on high chairs overlooking the cooks. It was interesting but also hard watching people work so hard. Am a foodie and felt impelled to note food sanitation issues.
Really awesome cuisine, everything was scrumdiddlyumptious
Great food and ambiance!
Onaga special was outstanding. Olive oil cake rocks for dessert.
Great food. The burger with fries is my favorite and the ketchup is tasty and I always ask for extra. Also, good service and friendly people.
Always amazing. I'm a monthly visitor and always trying something I've not had before. Never disappointed!!
Awesome food, fantastic cocktails, a lovely local ambience and friendly service. Would definitely recommend.
Always happy to come here. We've been about four times and have yet to be disappointed. The meals are creative, with layers of flavors. We enjoy working our way through the appetizer menu and finishing it off with one of the many wonderful desserts. I always look forward to dining here.
This would have been 5 stars except it took a very long time for food. Over two hours. Otherwise it was excellent.
