    we were staying at White Sands which is where HeyDay is located. Super fun spot. very casual and friendly and easy going. Ordered the HeyDay salad with grilled shrimp. Lots of big fat shrimp with a lovely bed of well dressed salad greens that appeared to be farm to table. Very delish. My husband ordered the pastrami sandwich. He said it might have been the best one he has ever had. quality was top notch. we recommend this hotel as well as the restaurant. Have fun!!

    A unique location to escape from the crowds and enjoy a drink and good food. The bartenders are friendly and make fabulous drinks! I hesitate to tell too many people how much we enjoyed Heyday because we want it to be the same next time we visit. Sit on a swing chair, enjoy a drink, relax.

    We have enjoyed dining at Heyday for a couple years. We are local. We loved supporting Robin and Chick. However, the restaurant stopped serving lunch. I took people there only to find it was not serving. We made a reservation for dinner last Friday . When we arrived (on time) there was no table for us . The waiter want to seat 3 of us at a rectangular long 6 person table. I complained and was told " it is a table". Then they asked a single person nursing a drink if she could shift to the 6 person table. The drinks were very disappointing, my 1944 mai tai was small, sour and completely not a mai tai. I was offered some oregat which helped. My husband did not even finish his flavorless alcoholic drink .The menu was dirty and greasy, a reflection of the diminished food choices. My son and I ordered a $20.00 hamburger which was all over greasy bun, no tomato and no lettuce , no pickle, no garnish just a grease ball served up on a tiny plate. We were appalled by the less than one star experience and will never return. No more recommendations from me.

    We would not recommend Heyday to anyone if you’re looking for dinner. The drinks were okay, but the food was not. The only food we got that anyone liked was the fries. The burgers were bad - they tasted like they were from frozen patties. The fish and chips that are supposed to be fresh looked like frozen fish and chips that you warm up in the microwave and fish was very dry with no flavor. The pork was dry and tough, the meatballs were just okay. Just not a great dinner experience overall with slow service.

    What should have been only an hour at this restaurant wound up being well longer as we waited an hour for our food. Dakota our server was amazing with what he had to work with. He literally was running from table to table making sure everything was filled and we had drink orders. He was truly sorry for the amount of time it took to get our order.

    What a find! I loved this restaurant. Quirky, kind of retro, great service and ambience, and amazing food! Sadly, the wedge salad so many talked about in their reviews is no longer available, but the house salad I had was delicious with lots of fresh veggies. And I loved the vegan lumpia. The best part was the pineapple mango crostata I had for dessert. This was seriously one of the best desserts I have ever had in a restaurant. To top it off, the Mai Tai was superb. I sat next to the small waterfall and koi pond, which made the whole experience magical. Heyday is a little off the beaten path, so you will have to go in search of it. Believe me, it’s worth it!

    Had an okay time. The ambiance and atmosphere was really neat. The service was lovely as well. The food was overpriced for what you got. Or at least for what we ordered. $18 for 2 tiny steak skewers felt high even for Waikiki. But maybe that’s just me. Would go again for a few drinks and maybe an appy but not for a full meal.

    What's the point of this place being on Opentable??? They totally do not prepare in advance for those with reservations. No one greets you for any type of check in. No table allocations in advance, etc. That said, the food was excellent. Steak skewers were Luke warm. They made new and were better. Chicken satay and foie gyoza were excellent. Ambiance is totally awesome. Live music which seemed disjointed at getting started but once it eventually began, was good. It should just be a bar with light snack, appetizer plates. As a restaurant taking reservations, no.

    A great place in Waikiki to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Waikiki strip. Atmosphere is fun with the swings around the bar feeling like we were in a tropical bungalow! The food is consistent and flavorful. We had the new items on the menu such as: vegetable lumpia which was so good, char sui-they need to keep this on the menu!!! Also the steak, fish and chips and of course their OOEY CHEESE BREAD. That is a must every time you go. Friday was $30 bottles!! We did Gondolina Prosecco! Will definitely be back again!

    Reservation through Open Table for dinner on new year’s eve at 9pm. When we arrived, waiter said that kitchen closes at 9pm and that reservations after 9pm are only possible for drinks. We were astonished because Open Table specifically mentioned « dinner ». Fortunately the kitchen was still willing to prepare food for us. @Heyday, don’t advertise for dinner after 9pm on Open Table when your kitchen closes at 9pm !

    Table was 40 min late, food took almost an hour to come and I even had to ask for water for my 5 yo multiple times before it arrived. They were also out of several dishes by the time someone reappeared to take our food order. Food was ok— although pricey—but not enough to make up for the terrible service and certainly not what I have to come to expect from James Beard award winners. Parking was also a nightmare. The only redeeming quality was the drinks, but wo food, it was hard to not become drunker than we wanted

    Wasn't sure what to expect, and it delivered. Few blocks back from Waikiki Beach, a tucked away motel looking entrance surrounded by glamorous high rise apartments and hotels. Unique courtyard setting with hotel suites right behind you as you enjoy the tranquil settings of the small, lounge sun deck/umbrella laden surrounded pool. Circular bar with swings for seats finished off this setting, with attentive staff and amazing food. Definitely an experience if you arrive with an open mind.
