    The restaurant was pretty empty for a Saturday and service was very good. The food was okay; it just didn't suit my tastes. I'd describe it as heavy or dark...I know that doesn't help you much, haha. Just not for my liking. The pork chop was cooked well but very salty.

    The restaurant was accommodating when I had to make a last minute addition to the reservation. We were seated right away and our server was helpful in making recommendations about the food. We ordered appetizers to share and the entree portions were a good size. We didnt feel rushed, despite it being fairly busy. We had a great experience and will definitely go back!

    This restaurant is fantastic. A small spot on the outskirts of Waikiki Beach, it is evident from the chef and the staff that they take pride in customer service and high quality food. All local, and incredibly innovative dishes. It was a stunning spot away from all the tourist hustle and bustle. Would definitely return.

    We arrived and were seated prior to our reservation in a large table. We elected to have the seasonal menu. One with Salmon and the other with the pork. The trio per dinner was a cold pumpkin soup, a potato wonton, and eggplant. Each of the three were quite delightful and delicious. Not being an eggplant fan I stated I could eat several as a main. The Foch was spiced to perfection as was the pork with couscous. The wine pairing was quite good with larger than normal pours. The chef owner stopped by our table to confirm we were enjoying our meal. The place had many locals however my wife found an article in Condé Nast about this restaurant. Without fail it was a hit and a great experience and added experience to meet the super Chef. Highly recommended only 12 minutes from Waikiki. PS his special desert is not to be missed.

    The appetizers were great! Loved the beef tartare, octopus and carpaccio. Getting there was a bit of a struggle since google map got us confused. The main entrees fell short. I found the dishes salty. I did enjoy the dessert and coffee.

    Kapa Hale is by far our favorite restaurant on Oahu. Chef Keaka makes some amazing dishes and has come out to talk story with us several times which is such a nice personal touch on the experience. I would give good recommendations but that would mean listing his entire menu because everything we've tried has ranged from great to absolutely delicious!

    This is my 2nd time to Kapa Hale and they did not disappoint. Trina C. greeted us warmly at the door and took care of our table perfectly. From simple but hearty and tasty dishes such as green eggs & pork belly ham and smoked pork eggs benedict to creative ones such as pumpkin pancakes and okonomiyaki omelette, everyone enjoyed their menu selection. And of course, we started it off with corny bread and smoked ahi dip, both winnahs! Definitely one of our favorite brunch spots - keep up the good work, Kapa Hale!
