food and service was really good. The only down side was the reno going on so all you saw was blue walls all around the restaurant and pool area. Just had to ignore the look and just concentrate on the food.
We made rsvp, got a great table, ordered our food, tasty, live music awesome
Service was attentive. Music was excellent along with the setting. There could’ve been better lighting on the entertainer as he was in the dark. Understand it’s a temporary, however a few temporary spotlights would’ve really helped the visual pleasure of the evening.
Miss the menu from before, but, new chef. New menu was good though..
Don’t waste your time or money here. The food is ok but the prices are not worth it at all. The fruit was clearly not fresh, and was probably imported in. The smoothie lacked freshness and flavor. The taro pork eggs Benedict was the only bright spot. Don’t pay $70+ for a fruit bowl, a smoothie, 2 entrees and a side of garlic bread.
The food was delicious and the service was great. Loved sitting next to the waterfall.
I enjoyed that the restaurant was outside. Service was speedy and very friendly. I enjoyed that the server tended to the needs of my toddler. Food was good. Overall a good experience.
We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant! Beautiful environment, live music, great drinks, and wonderful food. Our server was perfect and my husband and I said he was the perfect balance of attentive and friendly without being intrusive. We got the ultimate fish sandwich and the bbq chicken dish (I can’t remember what it’s called) with rice. SO DELICIOUS! Will be back!
Great food and ambiance. Wait staff friendly and accommodating. Killer Bread great appetizer!
Best meal we have had in Waikiki! Great food and service. Our waiter was wonderful-personable and attentive. Nice live Hawaiian music-something that seems hard to find on this trip. There is construction going on, but we definitely recommend this dining experience. Cannot wait to come back when construction is completed to enjoy it again.
Dinner was good. The band played Hawaiian music. Hotel is under construction until 10/22. I thought our reservation was for the restaurant on the beach. It was the pool bar restaurant. That was disappointing, but the staff and music was nice.
First time here, food was good, perhaps not what I was expecting. Nevertheless, the host was quite friendly.
Great meal, excellent service. Live music made the atmosphere perfect. 🤙
Garlic Shrimp was excellent!
Under construction and some louder noises but overall good vibes
I made a reservation on Open Table and it was quick and easy. They weren’t busy so I got the exact time I needed. Staff was friendly and attentive. Food was good. Ambiance was good with live entertainment who were awesome. It’s a great place to be for a relaxing time with family with good food! Thank you for a good dine-in experience!
Was remodeling. Need to have more seating facing live music
Servers really had to hustle as they appeared to be short staffed. We were seated on time and enjoyed a pina colada. My wife enjoyed the 5 spice ahi with the vegetables. I had the coconut shrimp. Both were quite good. Would have preferred to have some vegetable options instead of rice as I am diabetic. My wife ordered the pineapple creme brûlée was nicely presented and had a wonderful taste.
We had the garlic shrimp, a burger and keiki mac 'n cheese. Food was OK. Tables are around bar at hotel pool.
My family came here for lunch. It was a great spot with good food. Our waiter was attentive and helpful!
Right now the ambiance is lacking due to the construction. This did not take away from the great meal and awesome service. Try the Killer Bread, it was awesome! Place was not crowded and a welcome reprieve from the crowds at Waikiki. Highly recommended.
Enjoyable, pleasant ambience with good vibes. Items on menu are varied and several added for the day. Reputation is built on good food, as well as location. Ho on and give it a try, you will enjoy.
Server was very attentive. Good food. Open air dining. Valet parking.
Very nice server and a good, Impossible Burger. However, the place was over crowded and is currently under construction. It was like have a pool and cafe in the middle of a busy bus station.
AGAIN, the server was great and food was fine. Deplorable atmosphere and blazing hot.
Not impressed at all. We came in to ear the coconut shrimp we were told about only to be told they have a new chef so new menu. No more coconut shrimp!! Also no simple light appetizers such a chips and salsa or mozzarella sticks for the kids to snack on before dinner! They were hungry coming off the beach all day. The bread was great! Service was amazing! Atmosphere relaxing! The only 2 meals out of our 9 that were really good were the fish and chips and the BBQ pork sandwich.
Hotel is under construction. We were seated outside but subjected to the construction. Lose. Our view was of the wooden construction fencing. Service was super slow, and server was not attentive. Food quality was so-so. There are better places to eat in Waikiki.
It's a kid friendly pool restaurant. That being said it's LOUD. I mean I guess it's not always loud..just when kids are there. I'm not anti-kid by any means (I'm a mom) but I didn't think the description of this place was accurate. The food was good. The service was pretty ehhh. We waited a long time before anyone even came to greet us once we were seated (15 min or so). If you're staying at the hotel then heck yeah it's a great place for a bite. If not ..I suggest find another spot
Here from the Bay Area (Walnut Creek) and was so surprised about how big the serving was! I got the ultimate fish sandwich for lunch and when it came, sandwich was the whole fish!!! Was really good but unfortunately it’s too big! We will never get this serving portion in California! Next table couple ordered the same thing too! Was an excellent experience!
Celebrating a friends birthday
The service was deplorably bad and slow. The first clue that something might not be right was the empty tables - only four seated tables with the rest of the beach booked solid. Even with a nearly empty restaurant, the two servers seemed overwhelmed and saddened to have to work. After waiting 10 minutes, a server finally came over with water to tell us and the table next to us, "other customers were here first" and left. The rest of the lunch was equally slow with just as poor service (the service was somewhere between rushed and irritated to depressed and angry). The hotel is under construction, so the ambience is "construction site with beach somewhere over that construction wall."
My recommendation is that this is a HARD NO!
Good place. Service and food excellent. Atmosphere is limited because of construction
The food was great and the service was terrific. Some reviewers are complaining about slow service. We did not have that issue. Even if we did, it would be understandable since everyone everywhere is short staffed. Yes there is construction but there was no noise. The tacos, fish sandwich and scallops were right on. Try a beverage too it was great.
July 2021- Hotel is under major renovations- very noisy. Seems like will be attractive once complete. Not a great view.. our party didn’t really enjoy the meal. In addition, Very few gf options.
Sat at the bar
Not a bad place for lunch, booked a table on open table. Walked up, got a table right away. Lunch menu was a little small. But still got great food and service.
Lovely host to greet us, took our temperatures then seated us to our liking outside by garden. Filled out a short Covid form then Jason our waiter came over to bring waters. He was very professional, fast and on it. Always walking by and would ask us if we needed anything. He was fantastic, made our morning! Food delish and seemed fresh. We’ll definitely be back Mahalo’s 😃 for the great service & food. 🤙🏽
The pork quesadilla was awesome, their smoothies were great. The service was awesome. The pork sandwich was a little fatty. The hotel next door is undergoing construction, when that is done the ambiance will be better.
Our server Jason was awesome! However, everything else was fair. Our food was over cooked which was ultimately a huge bummer.
