Contemporary American
Oahu's 2016 Ilima winner for Best New Restaurant in Hawaii.
Hawaii Magazine Best New Restaurant Oahu 2017!

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.

Still the best place to eat in Chinatown. The menu is not extensive but comforting, reliable, and embracing. Eating here is like being invited to your best friends loft in SOHO and she just so happens to be a top restaurant Chef sharing a meal with you on her day off. Super special and intimate. The service here is attentive and personal. Pro Tip: The wine list contains treasures you will not find anywhere else in Honolulu. Parking sucks but walking back to your car after dinner provides a certain entertainment value that only Honolulu Chinatown can provide.

This was my fifth visit to Fete and as usual, the food was absolutely delicious, wonderfully presented, locally sourced and arrived in perfect time. Eleanor, our wait staff was bubbly, gracious and very well informed. Fete is becoming our go to place for pick up lunch and a nice week night dinner.

Amazing food. Loved the off menu specials and the service was amazing and got the spicy cocktail in the kitty that was such a delight. The rocky road ice cream however is a freaking must. Mind blowing fresh and special.

I have eaten at Fete many times, and have always had good experiences. This is one of the best wine lists in town, and you can always find good bottles. I drank bottle of Pilsner from a Portland brewery, very good. My friend had the ceasar salad with crispy chicken and ate every bite, she said it was great. I had the cheeseburger cooked medium with cheesy grits. The burger was cooked perfectly with a good flavor and mouth feel. The grits were very creamy and smooth and tasty, probably the best grits I have, including the grits I ate in South Carolina. The cherry goody goody (sherbet) was very well done and delicious.

Fete is one of my favorite restaurants in the whole world. It's the best pasta I've had outside of Italy. The cocktails are fresh and exciting, the service is impeccable, the wine recommendations are spot on, and even though their base menu has incredible food, I almost always order the specials, since they have always blown my mind. I had a carrot dish there that was one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten. CARROTS. Oh, and get the olive oil cake. Trust me.

Koji chicken with duxelle was glorious and the ricotta cavatelli with mushrooms and kale was delicious! Cocktail of choice for the evening was most certainly the Philanderer! The service was the most energetic and courteous we've had in a long, long time. The entire dinner experience was outstanding and we look forward to going back soon!

This was one of our favorite meals during our trip! The Chicken Liver Mousse was out of this world, the chicken special they had that night was seriously some of the best chicken I've ever had, and the linguitini carbonara was also very good and filling. The area around the restaurant is a little sketchy at night so I don't recommend walking around or sitting outside.
