Contemporary American
2022 James Beard Award Winner for Best Chef Northwest & Pacific.

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.

    What a disappointing experience. This was our second time here and were totally flabbergasted by the lack of professional service, overcooked food and overall terrible experience. Pro tip: Do not reserve the “high bar”. It’s in the kitchen, smells like grease and leaves you generally unattended by the servers. Tonight the veal schnitzel was way overcooked, basically burnt. Lets talk about how rude it was for a random server to approach us after we placed our wine order to remind us of the $29/glass price tag because the price was “ obscured” on menu… except it wasn’t obscured and we were 100% aware of the price…then after we were rudely reminded of the price the wine order showed up 20 mins after our main dish, it was already cold. Keep in mind we sat at the smallest table in existence with empty water glasses and empty initial drink orders for this period of time. The only part if our visit was the moderately good was the sourdough with accompanying spreads, Ragu special and how fast they removed the disgusting veal and the wine we returned to the bar so we could pay our bill leave. Will not be returning…

    We went for a lunch celebrating my birthday and we were not disappointed. I had the steak and Cesar salad with a side of crunchy potatoes and my wife had the Korean fried chicken sandwich with a side of ginger scallion rice. Both were delicious.

    Kevin, our bartender/server was awesome. Very detailed about to food, including specials on the menu as well as how local ingredients are a big part of their focus. Food was exceptional..we had the crispy fried shrimp, basil caeser, local red snapper & carbonara. Really great food…we will definitely go back.

    The food and service was excellent. The noise level inside the restaurant was really loud and we chose to be seated outside. Unfortunately, outside seating is along a sidewalk area and several individuals repeatedly exited the restaurant and bar next door to smoke cigarettes adjacent to the outside dining area.

    We loved the ambiance - casual and hip. Brick walls and vintage light fixtures. The food was amazing. I had the beet salad with crispy chicken added. Very tasty and well presented. My husband had the risotto with a fried egg and much more. Delicious! It is our best meal in Oahu so far - highly recommended! And, the bartender is extremely talented with craft cocktails.

    Feté was a fantastic experience. The staff was incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable about the whole menu. The bartender made us the exact drinks we didn’t even know we wanted after getting an idea of what we were looking for. The dishes were delicious and the portions were far from precious. I’d come once and month at least if I lived in Hawaii, if you’re coming to Oahu, take a detour and come here!

    Another great meal at Fete! The specials are always creative and different from their regular menu items. Still love many of the items on their regular menu like the quinoa cakes. The restaurant was very busy and vibrant ahead of the Slendid Table event at the Hawaii Theater.

    Came her for a late night reservation (8:45). Had the market fish which was amazing. Had the steak tartare that was soooo good! And cocktails were delicious. Their wine list is extensive and I saw someone (maybe the owner) come by to the table next to us to discuss their choice of bottle and I was jealous of the interaction. The vibe is very cool. It’s loud though so be prepared to yell to your table mates. I will definitely come back and definitely recommend to others.

    I heard that this was a James Beard Award winning restaurant so made a reservation a few week before flying to Honolulu from LA. It did not disappoint. The space is in an old red brick renovated space in Chinatown, which is today a foodie hotspot with lots of small gems to explore. The service was excellent, on time and attentive. The menu is hard to pin down with a mix of styles and ingredients. We had the fete spreads, goat cheese, fried prawns and grilled pumpkin salad starters. All were delicious. For our Main course we shared the meatballs with pasta, pan seared fresh fish (ono), and twice fried chicken. I think sharing is the best way to eat here because you can get a little bit of everything. The flavors and textures are new and interesting, which made for a memorable and delicious meal.

    What a find! We were looking for something that was excellent food and not located on Waikiki where prices for a good meal are off the charts. Fete has a sophisticated farm to table menu and an extensive and interesting wine list that won't break the bank. Our knowledgeable server enhanced the experience with her food and wine recommendations. You will not regret making a little bit of effort to find this cozy resto on the edge of Chinatown, although to be clear it is not a Chinese restaurant.

    This is the second lunch and the fourth meal I've had at Fete over the last two years or so. Lunch has just not been as good... I love the food, the service is always fun and upbeat... The menu is on the small side, not a lot to choose from. Perhaps they change it seasonally, I'm not sure, but especially with a small menu I prefer things changed up. The burger, which I asked for rare, came medium so with a thinner patty that turns in to a harder rather than a creamier or smoother mouth, the bun avocado and sauces were soft so they slid off the harder burger when cutting with the knife, or the teeth! Their decaf coffee is amazing. The dessert was a cannoli, so hard you had to cut it with a steak knife, it really snapped, not pleasant to eat, and the delicate flavor of the lilikoi was cream lost behind the heavy dark chocolate accents. They are usually quite busy so one waits for their table outside on the sidewalk in a colorful neighborhood where some folks where, walking around there are a few really challenged folks, so if you're sensitive to adversity like that, buck up. The dinners I've had were closer to impeccable, maybe just the luck of the draw... but always a swinging environment and smart, stellar staff. To all fine restaraunts and bars serving expensive drinks : Cut Back On the Ice. It waters down what you've got going in the glass, and I don't want to pay that much for ice anyway... NOT just a note to Fete! When I was there for dinner I specifically asked for and got a cocktail with no ice. Yum

    Went to Fete based on a friends recommendation but didn’t know what to expect. Our experience was wonderful. The staff made us feel right at home. The menu is both diverse and interesting in the breadth of offerings. The grilled carrot appetizer was delightful. The main courses were tasty and ample, melding together both Hawaiian and Asian influences. Highly recommended! PS sourced from local farms!

    Fete didn't disappoint. Great service: we arrived well before our reservation - they were able to seat us outside immediately. The servers worked as a team and were incredibly helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The food was amazing. Get anything and you won't be disappointed... we had the pasta special, basil Caesar, prawns, and fried rice. The special dessert was a pineapple tart - AMAZING.

    I've wanted to visit Fete for some time. Unfortunately, it was not what I expected. The service was good and the food was OK. My wife and I shared the carbonatta, it was average. The mushroom chicken special and the fish special arrived at room temperature. The drinks were good. Sadly we agreed Fete did not make the "will return soon" list for us.

    Very busy for lunch, our seats were ready for us at the bar even when we arrived 15 minutes early. Bartenders and servers were busy tending the full dining room (which is a good thing!) so at times our waters ran out or I found myself wanting to order another drink despite the bartender being busy with other things. That being said, food and drinks were delicious as always, service was warm. There's a reason it was so busy, it's a great spot.

    We loved the food, ambience and service at Fete so much that we visited three times in our 10 day stay in Honolulu. The Korean fried chicken was delicious and the cocktails are great. It’s a really fun place to visit. We highly recommend it. It’s an easy Uber or taxi ride from Waikiki.
