    Food is phenomenal. However our waiter couldn’t care less if our group was taken care of. We will try again just because food was so good.

    The drinks were the only good thing about this place. The food and service were terrible. My husband couldn't eat his meal because it was so bad. Poorly cooked and no flavor at all.

    Great food and atmosphere. Drinks were very slow to arrive and everyone's food arrived at different times. Servers were polite but since you order online at the table, there seemed to be confusion as to how to synchronize the orders in our party of six. We still enjoyed food and had a good time

    Very nice. The only thing is they need to update the phone message about the hours. It said that they were not yet open for lunch and I panicked for a minute. I had a reservation but was afraid that it was a mistake. Please fix that phone message

    My friend ordered a drink using their QR code system and she received the payment verification that it went through. Her drink never got delivered so we asked about it and they said it didn’t go through to their system. We talked with the manager and even after showing the bank statement that it had processed, the manager would not give my friend the drink she ordered and paid for since it “didn’t go through their system”. The manager did not offer an apology or anything and basically just walked away. We asked how to get a refund and they said they didn’t know. Nothing was offered to make up for it. Absolutely ridiculous service by the manager. Will not be returning.

    The food was good, it's a Hawaiian menu so that is fun. If you've been to Hawaii you'll recognize all of the dishes. The table ordering process can be confusing and I think the service lacks because of it. However it won't deter me from going back.

    We were not fans of the automatic 20% in the bill. We were not sure why we pay 20% and we had to order on the app. In a typical restaurant experience I pay above 20% especially when the service is exceptional. We enjoyed our server but she didn’t really do much serving, because we had to use the app. And we couldn’t believe how expensive the meal was we also wanted to sit by the window as all the tables were available but they did not seat us because they said the server who is handling that section was not in at the time. This seemed a little ridiculous to us! Why would you not have the best seats available right when the restaurant opens?

    It was a lovely, albeit, hot evening until the sun went over the tree line. The service was great, however the drinks too a bit too long to come out. I am not sure how I feel about the automatic 20% gratuity added to the bill, but at least the hostess and the server warned us about it. I'd return to this restaurant.

    Maybe I'm just old-school, but I prefer an actual menu vs QR code to see it on my phone. And if a 20% tip is automatically included in the total, then I'd like the waitstaff to actually take my order vs ordering on the app. Thankfully the waitress was happy to accommodate my ordering preference, but I question how long it will continue to be an option.

    When we decided to dine outdoors, the hostess very sternly warned me that when we got too hot and wanted to come back in, the would likely not have a table for us. While it was hot outside, the tables had umbrellas and there was a breeze along the river...totally comfortable. Her attitude was definitely off-putting. My guest and I found it cumbersome that we had to order our food over the app versus talking about the menu with a server and making choices based on their recommendations. I felt the menu choices were limited and the entrees very expensive. The food was mediocre at best. The service was okay, but should have been better since they have an automatic 20% gratuity added to all checks. It was a business lunch, so paying the check over an app where I cannot print or access the receipt for expense report/tax purposes is very inconvenient. I won't be dining there again.

    I thought this was a really great experience! It's hard to find restaurants that have what I believe was a Hawaiian inspired menu, so that was a fun touch. Everything was pretty tasty too, though the menu was a little bit limited. I also felt the drinks were just a touch expensive, but the food was generally a pretty good value. I don't think it's a great fit for larger parties, but I think for a group of four or less, it'd be a really fun place to grab lunch or dinner.

    Went here with a group of 5 for a kind of reunion with some friends. We sat outside which was lovely by the river. We were there catching up for a few hours, and so we really loved the ease of ordering from the phone anytime we wanted more drinks or a few apps. Sydney was great! She checked on us often and it was easy to order with her when we needed anything too. Food was awesome. Loved the lumpia and the malasadas. Sydney brought over postcards as well, which was so nice so that we could send those to the friends who couldn't make it to the reunion! The restaurant mailed these for us for free! So cool!

    We ate between 2:20 and 3:30pm. We choose outdoor seating for view of the river but the heat made it uncomfortable for my wife. Yet the ambience was great. We had two appetizers and one entree. The food was hot and delivery was quick. Because it was hot outside my wife's tropical drink lost it's taste after melting ice. I would go back for more experience dinning there. A great spot for Richmondners and surrounding communities.

    All our food was excellent and well priced. The view is great and they did a nice job with the renovation. The dining system works, but the service itself is very very slow and you will be frustrated if you need a drink refill or a sauce, or for that matter, silverware.

    Their ordering system consistently caused our drinks, appetizers and entrees to come out at odd intervals and out of order. Several guests were left waiting while others ate so their food would not get cold. Had to ask the staff several times for items such as napkins. Consistently had another table’s food and/or drinks brought out to us. Finally, despite having a reservation, we waited for 15 minutes before being seated with our party of 8. Not to mention the parking is s nightmare. So many better places in the city, don’t see why you’d waste your time here. First and last visit.

    Made a reservation and was seated as soon as we arrived. Waitress described the ordering process, but was happy to take our orders if we wanted. Drinks came quickly, as did our appetizer. Our dinner came at an appropriate time as well. The food was delicious and definitely worth the price. Afterwards, the chef came by to ask how dinner was. We had read a lot of negative reviews and were happy we had a positive experience.

    Absolutely loved this place! I love when restaurants have Toast Mobile Order & Pay! So easy and fast. We sat down at 5:30 and were done with appetizers, meals & dessert by 6:15 because it all came so fast and we didn’t have to wait for a server to order. We were checked on several times by staff and I can’t wait to come back with friends! 10/10 Fish tacos & drinks were wonderful! Beautiful spot!
