The service and cocktails were amazing! The food was good…not great…and not amazing. In an area of town that has been and continues to be a foodie haven…your food needs to be amazing. I think the menu could use a kickstart with some items and creative recipes.

We had Crab Cake Eggs Benedict with breakfast potatoes. The breakfast potatoes were seasoned nicely and crab cake benedict was seasoned and cooked properly but…it just lacked that umppff.

It was hard to tell if it was open upon arrival. I actual saw a couple start to enter but thought it was closed so they kept walking.

I believe the whiskey displays could use some…updating. Dusting. Refilling. Etc.

Next time I may just stick to the bar and a burger with fries.

Livestock Tavern consistently serves up some of the best meals on Oahu. Great service. Sadly the shipping shortages and popularity of many drink selections had several items on the menu out during our time. Filet mignon was perfect as always. The hush puppies were a nice add to the menu. Highly recommend. Hopefully the bar gets restocked soon!

Went down here for a date with my wife. Excellent food, really great tasting steaks. Drinks were fantastic. All of it was a little pricy but worth it for a nice meal. Service was excellent and everything very clean.

This was my second time dining at Livestock Tavern. I enjoyed that they brought out a winter themed menu while keeping their delicious essentials. The waitress was able to recommend me a drink based on my preferences when I didn't see what I wanted on the menu.

We started our dinner with 2 Angels Envy Old Fashions. They have a pretty good selection of whiskey, bourbons and rye and for $2 you can make it an Old Fashion. For appetizers we ordered the Hush Puppies, delicious. My husband had the Grilled Rack of Lamb medium rare and I had the Seared Duck Breast and Duck Hash with a side order of Oxtail Mac & Cheese. The food and service was great here.

I used to love coming to Livestock Tavern and order their risotto (which changes frequently but I loved each one). This last experience was not that great - I had their scallop risotto and the scallops were rubbery and bland - to a point where I thought they were spoiled. I would not recommend their seafood dishes at all.

I ordered the lamb shank, but was given lamb chops instead. When I pointed out the error, I was told that the kitchen had run out of lamb shanks. Then, when I asked if I could be given the sides that were included with the lamb shanks, I was told that that was not possible.

Food was good
Ambience was good
The service was good. All the wait staff (3 waitresses) served tables/customers. They were attentive. However, I didn’t like that 1 of the waitresses bought me an unwrapped straw with her hands. If you don’t have wrapped straws use a napkin to grab straws. And then she dropped the straw in my glasses of water with her hand. So, I didn’t drink the water.

Visiting Oahu for the first time and looking for good/ non-touristy place. This was excellent!

Great variety on the menu with local fresh ingredients. We orded a lot of different items to split. So many choices to make you want to visit multiple times. Welcoming staff (thanks Joanna!). Will highly recommend to family and friends as a place to go to.

We had reservations for 10am on a Sunday so we were the first to arrive. The lovely lady who greeted and welcomed us asked to see our vaccination cards and we were escorted to our table. I ordered a Bloody Mary and my husband ordered a cup of coffee. The Bloody Mary was the perfect balance of vodka, tomato juice, and hot sauce topped with a lime wedge and green olive. To start with, we shared the smoked octopus from their "small plates" section on their menu. The octopus was so tender and the andouile sausage, cherry tomatoes, artichokes, and olives balanced out the dish quite nicely. We loved it! My husband ordered the Lobster Loco Moco while I had the Crab Cake Benedict. Both dishes were amazing and very tasty. We truly enjoyed our Sunday Brunch at Livestock Tavern and we plan to return.

Delicious beef. Not just at this restaurant, but we were surprised by beef prices in a state the prides itself on beef and presumably produces a lot of it. Nonetheless, it was excellent.

I'm not a fan of stacking the entire meal in one pile ... filet atop green beans atop mashed potatoes, but that seems to be a trend among chefs.

Altogether, I'd definitely go back.
