Fantastic service and excellent food. Like eating outside on the patio, road noise isn’t too loud
Food was awesome. We had the steak special & lamb chops, excellent. Loved the veggies & sauce. Also had crab dip, delicious.
Seriously the best place on the island to eat.
You want a nice, relaxing, and casual experience with excellent food and excellent service, then this is the place to be.
You won't be disappointed. Unless they've run out of something.
The service here is always outstanding. Kalapawai is one of our "go to" restaurants every week.
Our waitress Meagan was very personable, offered suggestions and attentive. Host staff a little rough could be more gracious. Food and drinks were onolicious.
Great food and service. We had the salmon stuffed with crab which was perfectly prepared. Would definitely recommend this gem, not crowded and nice atmosphere.
Great food, atmosphere and service. We went there twice for dinner during a recent vacation and picked up some yummy bakery items for breakfast.
Always a good experience- had out of towners and everyone enjoyed themselves.
Our group enjoyed the fish and pasta dishes. Friendly and very attentive staff.
Love the salad and bakery items! Delicious
GREAT OUTDOOR SEATING OPTION
Great food, good service!
Service was great, quick and efficient! However, gone are the days when parents took their noisy kids out for the sake of others and there were some noisy ones in there. Nothing you can do about that!
The daily special was kajiki and kauai prawns.
Fish and shrimp was over cooked and rubbery, but sauce was flavorful.
Great experience, good food. They got us seated at the bar right away. Nice atmosphere. Been to both Kailua locations and I like Kapolei even better!
The staff at Kalapawai Kapolei ALWAYS are outstanding. We have been there numerous times. Only once was my food a little off, but that is because I am picky. Every other time, it’s so good.
The food is always great when we come here. It’s pretty casual but the food is almost fine dining quality.
The reservation they Open Table was easy and the restaurant experience was perfect. Granted it was slower due to the Covid hoax but this restaurant service level didn’t miss a beat. Food quality was top notch and prices were similar to others.
Never a bad experience when we dine at Kalapawai. The food is bomb the drinks , on point and the service is always top notch!!
The food was good, but the service was lacking. No refills on our drinks, and after another server cleared our plates and packed our leftovers our server finally came and asked if we were interested in dessert, we passed. Then we sat another 15 minutes just waiting for our check. Maybe it was an off night for her, but I’m not likely to return.
Loved their menu!
This is our favorite restaurant and our go-to for all special occasions and frequently for date night! The chef specials are always delicious, creative and very well priced compared to other restaurants on the island. We love the drink and beer selections and the staff are extremely friendly! We can’t recommend this wonderful cafe enough!
We had a very nice dinner with friends:) Thank you!
Went for lunch with my cousin service was great and food tasty. I would definitely go back again...The Fish tacos and the cookie with ice cream really hit the spot...maybe I will try their dinner menu
Great diner with tasty dinner options. Drinks were awesome too! We will be back.
The restaurant was very nice. I love the ambiance. We had reservations and our table was reserved with a sign. We came for lunch. The food was out of this world. Delicious! Great place to come for a date.
Great food, good drinks and very friendly staff. We eat here as often as we can!
Good comfort food in comfortable place with good service...
Food and cocktails are always great at Kalapawai!
Great cookie dessert.
Only second time eating out since the start of the pandemic. Great decision!
This restaurant is much improved from a year ago, when we were last on Oahu. My wife's fish with lemongrass risotto and my wagu burger were just terrific/perfectly prepared. We ate outdoors and service was fine. We're going to go back at least once more this trip.
If you want good comfort food, Kalapawai is the place to go. The West Side burger and shrimp penne pasta are my absolute favorites.
Kalapawai is usually a nice and relaxing place to eat and enjoy your meal.
Only downfall is when there's inconsiderate and obnoxious patrons who feel they must shout to talk and laugh so the whole neighborhood can hear them even though they are sitting within an arms length of one another.
Always a great experience here, looking to come back for great tasting food and drinks.
Love Kalapawai the food is soo good.
Loved our meal, one of the best we enjoyed during our week! Service was outstanding and our food delicious!
We decided to try a local place and we are very thankful to have found this place. The food was exquisite, the staff was extremely nice. They have a great bar selection. We will definitely be going back.
Great little neighborhood cafe. We love coming here for lunch. Food is yummy and the service is good. We like their skinny fries! The online reservation is convenient and recommended as there’s usually a line during peak hours.
I loved their foods. That's why I keep on coming back.
But i was disappointed when we went on 2/13 for dinner and requested to dine in outside the patio and there was one particular costumer that talks so really loud like constantly talking stories with her friends and sounded like she was really drunk and we wanted to go back inside or leave already because it felt uncomfortable but we decided to stay. Food and service was great but ambiance, it was loud almost the whole time not only the sound of bus passing by but this woman behind our table was louder.
