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.

    Our meal here was outstanding. The veal charsiu special that they offered that evening was incredible- perfectly cooked ʻulu, great seasoning on the veal and two delicious sauces. I hope they put the grilled carrot appetizer special on the menu, we left nothing on our plate. The cocktails paired well with the food. We enjoyed the clarified cocktail with the li hing and the Fete 75. The only thing I would keep in mind is that there’s not much privacy at the table because of how close everyone is seated and there’s nowhere to wait while your table is being prepped. Service was impeccable and it was an obvious team effort- these guys know food and drink. Overall, everything culminated to a memorable evening. We will be back again!

    Food is wonderful but sometimes hard to understand. Great and unusual wine list. Many favorites not included. Wait staff is uniformly wonderful. Ate in the library last night; before at the bar. Bar and downstairs seating is tight, library is perfect. Great new addition to Honolulu.

    Delicious food and drinks! We love to try different dishes so we split things up a lot. The kitchen was incredibly kind and split it all before it got to the table. The Basil Caesar Salad and Onaga were both excellent. So fresh and flavorful. The Korean fried chicken was also incredibly tasty! And they allowed my daughter-in-law to be “carb free “by putting it all on a salad instead of a bun. The bavette with fried rice was a rare treat! Perfectly cooked and seasoned! The service was slow, but we really enjoyed being upstairs where it is quiet and easy to talk. Too bad we had to pick up our children, so couldn’t stay for dessert!

    We waiting for quite a while to be greeted at the door to be seated for a 4:30 dinner reservation. Finally one of the bar staff came around to seat us and take our orders until wait staff finally arrived. Aside from this, the food was fantastic and locally sourced which is also amazing!

    Sat at the bar which was nice. Looks great inside. Seemed a bit understaffed for a busy lunch crowd. Bartender was great. Drinks amazing. Tartare good. Smoked ono sandwich, carbonara, and schnitzel we’re all ok. Highlight was the lilikoi cheesecake.

    Overall, it was just ok. The server appeared like he did not want to wait on me (dining alone). He did the bare minimum and told me only some of the specials they had that day. I overhear all of the specials from the waitress helping a party of 4 at the table next to me but had already ordered by this point. The pan seared fish was a bit tough, however, the salad that accompanied the fish was really good.

    t's true, I had lunch there yesterday with a girlfriend then went back for dinner with my son. It was actually my third time in 2 weeks. Modestly priced, excellent service, fantastic flavors, great beverage list... Here is what my son said when I thanked him for dinner. "Thanks for choosing to go there twice in a day. The carrots were almost as good as your company. I love you". Just go. You will be happy! Oh and yes... I did... I licked the plate that the carrots were served on. I wasn't the only happy one Not to mention the veg entree of zucchini noodles and all kinds of other delicious yummies!

    The Veal Schnitzel was very delicious and so was the Lilikoi Cheese Flan. The Special of the day Pork Ragu Pasta was a delight as well, my friend was able to get it without mushrooms. The ice tea my friend ordered didn't arrived until after the entrees arrived to the table, that was the only downside of the whole experience.

    Service was poor. Felt rushed the entire meal and were told after being in the restaurant for 55 min, that the restaurant needed our table for another diner in 5 min. Was not told at the time our reservation was made that our time was limited to one hour. Also had multiple people coming to the table asking the same thing throughout the meal. Our meal was a business lunch and even the client made a comment on the poor service. Lastly, service was not particularly friendly. Lunch menu is too limited. Need more diverse selection of food to order. Have dined at Fete quite a few times, but will NOT dine at Fete again.

    Fete is my favorite kind of place. Creative, thoughtful, fun. I love that they don’t really have a kids menu, but my kids loved the pasta carbonara. Everything was unique and delicious, and they source from several local farms and I love that is spotlighted. The service was also amazing and friendly. And everyone at our table agreed the house made Rocky road Ice cream might be the best Ice cream ever.
