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.

Excellent ambiance, aesthetics, and food. Great service and good vibes. The steak salad and carbonara were amazing and would love to return just for those items. Affordable cocktails that don’t leave you regretting your purchase. Great all around!

The food is amazing. The service was great. The location is not perfect. The food is worth it but ask for an indoor table. The outside tables are right near the street with noisy busses passing by. There are several bars on the street with a lot of noisy activity spilling out onto the sidewalks.

The menu was creative. We ordered the specials and couldn’t have enjoyed them more. The wait staff was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Presentation was gorgeous. Atmosphere was welcoming and conducive to conversation. Chef Maii is to be congratulated for this fine dining experience.

Dinner at Fete is always an amazing experience. Staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about both the food and wine. Febreeze the bartender is also a Somalier and knows his wines!! The owner remembered my food allergy from a prior visit and made sure my dish met my dietary restrictions. Small, personal, great food, great service. Can’t say enough good things about this place.

Food was great, service was excellent, and we had outdoor seating to be safe. It was a little noisy at times since we were outside, but it was still a great lunch.

We were looking forward to dining at Fete based on the great reviews and were so surprised with the experience. We chose outside thinking it would be pleasant and it was not, as it was at times very noisy with buses roaring past. I think they tried to add more seating because the inside is small. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and then by the server. We ordered drinks then lunch. Then we waited and waited. My husband ordered the Coconut Prawns and they were huge and delicious. I ordered the Chaz Burger because it sounded good. Unfortunately, it was not seasoned, not cooked to the desired doneness and too much sandwich for a flimsy bun. The service was non existent. Waited and waited to see our server again as she never checked on how we were doing or if we needed anything. When she finally came and asked if we liked the food my husband was finished and I had eaten less than half of the burger. I wasn't going to eat it and she didn't seem to want to hear me explain why. How do you find out unless you ask and at least appear interested. Sadly, we will not return with our cousins for a special dinner.

We love the vibe here! The staff is attentative and authentic. The food is amazing. Try the koji brined chicken with foie gras and any fish special they have for the night. Must try the house-made rocky road ice cream. Parking can be a challenge as it is in Chinatown.

Started with the Sweet Land Farms cheese & bread, yum. Then the chiopino bowl, so yummy! The basil caesar salad is amazing along with the smoked fish sandwich. We didn't have room for dessert :-(
Love the wine selection too.
We love being able to sit outside & dine so we appreciate that Fete is able to accomodate.

Everything was amazing except for ambiance. Mostly because we were sitting outside and it’s on a busy street in China town. Loud buses. Homeless people. And smelly

Our food was outstanding, great flavors. The service was perfect. Don't miss the house made rocky road ice cream when available, it is delicious. We sat outside so there is some bus noise but the breeze was nice and the evening was quite comfortable.

Very professional, friendly and knowledgeable service, along with really wonderful seasonal fresh meals and huge wine list. It was noisy since we were outside along a busy street but table was tucked right against the building and felt separated from the sidewalk. We all loved our meals, from salad to fish to fried chicken.
