Perfect evening! Great food, libations and excellent service. Really enjoy dining at Goen.
Very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Open air tables are perfect for keeping distance between customers. I will return again.
Goen never disappoints. The food is great and the staff is excellent. Best neighborhood restaurant in Kailua.
Our server Tiana was so kind to our table and so knowledgeable about the dishes. She was very busy with her tables yet STILL managed to smile and take good care of us. I also appreciated how the manager(s) chip in and help as the dishes were ready to be served. Kana’i even came over to check on us a few times as he recognized us from previous reservations. Goen is a great place to be!
Food was both healthy and yummy! Service was excellent!
Phenomenal food and service!! Easy parking nearby, highly recommend!
Great overall experience.
Everything was outstanding as usual.
Our experience was relaxed, enjoyable and SAFE. Their COVID requirement protocol goes smoothly as long as diners have their vaccination card and a photo ID available.
Great service with a smile. Brussell sprouts and cauliflower was excellent
Amazing service from our server and manager.
Food was good. Service was good. They were out of buratta cheese, so the dish I was looking forward to was unavailable. I’ll have to come back another time for it. The sushi is good, but get the sauces and toppings on the side. I feel like all that extra stuff takes away from the sushi. The fish is good quality, why mask it with over powering sauces? All in all a good experience.
Everything was Perfect!! Thanks for a Superb experience!
Good food. Great service. Relaxed atmosphere
Wonderful food, friendly staff! An outstanding restaurant in the heart of Kailua...parking is easy...not touristy and very festive! One of our favorite places to eat!
Kama’aina Fav! Delish and Consistent. Great presentation! Service by Kanehe with a smile! Love the atmosphere!
Wonderful as always staff is so friendly and kind. All Covid protocols followed. We had great drinks endless edamame and flavorful entrees like braised beef with polenta. We ended with a fresh cup of coffee and halo halo. Love dining here!
Great food! Very tasty & portion size was good for us. The service is amazing. Very attentive and courteous staff.
Lots of parking, since it's located in the shopping center. My only complaint is that it's HOT! Not much circulation, since the outside seating is right along side parking lot. I would prefer a seat inside, but with covid restrictions; they seat mostly outside.
Great service and fabulous food.
I have been here so many times, and it is always a wonderful time! Can't wait to go back again!
I love all of Roy Yamaguchi's restaurants, and I've been to all of them on the island. I've NEVER had a bad meal at any of his places. Presentation is also always beautiful, and the staff at Goen's were soooo great!
Also, I love, love, love that Hawaii is requiring proof of vaccine for patrons, honestly it makes us feel so much safer. Also love that all food service workers also must be vaccinated or tested. It just makes sense during this time of Covid. So thank you Roy Yamaguchi and the state of Hawaii.
Goen's is so convenient too, and also love that parking is NOT a problem, so many parking spots, and it's also convenient to shopping.
Everytime we come the food is delicious and consistent, the staff is wonderful. Our favorite place to dine.
It’s our favorite place to go for superb food and superb service.
It was nice overall…food is a little bit too expensive!
One of the BEST restaurants on Oahu!! Food & service never disappoint. From drinks to appetizers to main course & then dessert - everything is delicious!!
This place is friendly, safe, and the food is pretty good. I like the appetizers better than the mains. And they have a great cocktail menu. The wait staff is some of the friendliest on the island. Great atmosphere. I like it.
Friendly, courteous waitress - attentive and pleasant. Food met expectations as depicted.
Food was good but a little on the pricey side.
Delicious food awesome service!
Great Food and Service. One of go-tos in Kailua.
A little unorganized to start but with Covid rules I guess you need to take 15 minutes to check in and stuff. They were turning people away for 1.75 hours with no reservation. Wow.
Friendly hostess had contact tracing card partially completed to save time. First round of drinks came quickly, second not so much. Top notch Brussel sprouts came in a large portion. Bread with burrata was crispy and slightly chewy at same time. Sashimi - very clean. I ODd on wasabi, but that was my fault. Didn’t have room for dessert but ordered s’mores anyway. Glad we did! Homemade marshmallow to die for.
Delicious. Everything. Service was tremendous. Love this place!
Great friendly service, best dished are vegetarian
Outside seating so it was warm
Parking was convenient in the garage
Server was friendly but the person who checked us in was not
It was excellent!
Hope more choice of lunch menu.
Awesome more casual Roy’s spot in Kailua! Sticky ribs appetizer are the stuff dreams are made off. Crispy salmon was amazing and the S’mores concept is delightfully nostalgic. Was very curious on the fusion of gnocchi but it fell a little flat and the cheesecake could have used more lemon flavoring or more of the yummy yuzu compote. Service was casual and location within a shopping district, but up to par with more formal Roy’s restaurants- no “food auction” when plates arrive. Kailua farmers market in the parking lot on Thursdays.
Just wanted to take my better half out to a nice dinner! The food and service were more than I expected. I’ll be back soon enough!!
Service was lovely but the food was average. Fish and chips should have been fresh for $28. Unfortunately it was frozen and therefore mushy. The outdoor tiki torches weren’t turned on so lacked that atmosphere. We attended for a business dinner and despite being a quite Sunday night, staff couldn’t split the bill.
It was excellent! The food was unique and the staff were friendly and attentive. The drinks were alright, but I believe that’s based on our preference. Great place for anything between fun date night to a nicer special occasion, would definitely recommend!
Local upscale spot. Great service. Food was lovely. Decent wine list.
Outside under the stars in Kailua. Living the dream.
