    Kapa Hale is a quaint out of way and quiet place to enjoy a very nice meal. I appreciate a restaurant where the customer can enjoy a conversation in a pleasant atmosphere. The food was excellent and the Kahala Shuffle dessert was great for a chocoholic like myself.

    If it were on Kalakaua Ave it would be twice the price. Such amazing food, locally sourced, but lost importantly delicious! We were blown away. Cocktails and wine pairings were delicious. The $50 tasting menu is an absolute steal. The service was impeccable as well - best I've had since pre-covid!

    Horrible service! Went there to celebrate a birthday and they forgot the birthday girls food. After being reminded 3 times. It came in a to go box when it was time to cash out after the disappointment had already set in. Awful experience.

    Kapa HaleResponded on August 10, 2022Aloha, We deeply apologize for your negative experience. We have reviewed your notes with the staff and would never want our guests to be forgotten. We understand there were multiple orders coming from different members of the party and believe a miscommunication occurred. We will work on better communication and teamwork moving forward.

    A calm and quiet dining experience, with very good food. The menu has clever names for dishes, but each is well described. A varied selection with flavor twists. The beverage selection is great for both alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks. The staff is helpful and so kind.

    Everything is always incredible here. We love it! Our favorites are the Naan Ya Business, the Kapakahi salad, the Bouef and if you like chocolate, the Kahala shuffle pie is a must. Last night, we had the summer dinner tasting menu and it was sooo good- the best gazpacho I’ve ever had. Honestly tho- we’ve tried most of the menu and you can’t really go wrong- it’s all super delicious & amazing.

    The reviews were misleading I had the summer dinner just ok way to salty the tagliatelle was chewy and tasteless I thought it would be a tomato sauce as the menu did not state what it was overall would not go back although the waiter ajay was very good

Thank you for a truly memorable meal that our family voted best meal in Honolulu

    We've been to Kapa Hale several times but this was a first for brunch. There were several dishes that seemed so delectable but we settled upon the corny bread, croque wahine and shroom melt. All the dishes were delicious! One small side note would be to have an orange wedge or some type of fruit to add color to the plating. Definitely will be back for Da Weekender Burger!

    On our 2nd time visiting we ordered the steak and could not cut through it due to the gristle and fat. No one asked to see how we liked it or came back to check on us. Our dirty plates sat in front of us for over 20 minutes. Other items we had were fine and tasty but the steak was awful and the service was less than desirable. I will not be going back unfortunately.

    Waitstaff accommodated our request from outdoor to indoor seating by an open door. Appetizer was slow to come out. The naan appetizer turned out to be the best of our orders. The hamburger entrees were not tasty and were very well done. Couldn’t taste the anchovies on the burgers. The hamburger steak was tough and the gravy was salty.
