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.

    A great night. We enjoyed all of our dishes. First time in the upstairs room. It was very pleasant and quieter than downstairs. We enjoyed the ambience. The pasta dishes were special and the chicken wing appetizer was extraordinary. I will be back. So many things on the menu to try.

    Food amazing and service was spot on - friendly, funny, and helpful. We shared a few appetizers and entrees and even desserts. The spreads, the carrots (on special), the fried chicken, the rib eye, and the rocky road ice cream (with the homemade marshmallows) were all divine.

    We’re from Australia, and this was Incredible food. The Ragu and the goats cheese dish was a MUST try. They show every farm supplier they use at the bottom of the menu, which is hard to find these days.

    A small venue offering cuisine equivalent to any of the top rated restaurants in Waikiki or Honolulu. So many intriguing choices, it was hard to decide. The food was exquisite & flavored with many many exciting nuances. The staff was warm and extremely helpful with our choices. It was obvious that they are dedicated & love their job.

    Everything was fantastic…so good we went 2 nights in a row and will probably be back one more time before we leave. We sat at the bar and had good conversation with the bartender and the other diners. My favorites were the Hotel St. Ghost, the Basil Caesar, Smoked Ono Club, Carrot and Sunchoke Special, Market Fish, and the Rocky Road Ice Cream.

    The restaurant is a bit loud due to the brick walls. The spread appetizer was nice. The two pasta dishes my kids had were tasty. My wienerschnitzel was well made. The crust was as good as any thing I’ve eaten in Germany. My only downside was that the veal was a bit gristly. One half of the schnitzel was too tough to chew. Maybe a bad cut? My wife had the whole shrimp dish and like it. The service was excellent. Definitely would try the restaurant again.

    Spent a week in Honolulu with my family, and it was wonderful... but the 2 hours we spent at Fete were literally the ONLY time during the whole vacation where I didn't feel like we were in a tourist trap. Marvelous food, from appetizers to dessert, and they were VERY accommodating of our 10 year old, who loved her burger (and bread?!?!) Specials were delicious and they have an extensive wine list. Just a great all around time.

    I had high expectations since this was a James Beard awarded chef. Sadly we were disappointed. The appetizers and drinks were the best part of the meal. We got the Quinoa cakes (delicious!), the bread/smoked Gouda with honey was excellent also. One couple got the mixed tampenades and they were ok. They loved their Mai Tai drinks and said they were excellent and very strong. For main course, 2 got the prawns which came with head and legs still on and no one made any comments that they were really good. They simply picked apart the prawns and ate silently. I got vegan risotto which was not risotto at all, but basically rice pilaf with mushrooms and peas. It has zero flavor. I thought about asking for hot sauce. It was not creamy. It was a very expensive plate of rice. The most successful main course was the person who got the grilled cheese with Tomato jam. They really liked it. Overall, it was just ok. If you have eaten at Michelin star restaurants or even good chain restaurants, you might be disappointed.

    Wow! What a great find in Honolulu! We can hardly wait to go back. My partner will not go at night, so we went for lunch today. He loved his bavette steak and I was glad for the risotto. We had an "Orange"wine which is not common in Honolulu and loved it. The service was perfect. The restaurant was wonderfully done. The overall experience was over the top good. I hope that other places in Honolulu learn from this one.
