It was our first night in Honolulu and our server, Chris, made us feel extremely special and gave excellent recommendations. They even gave us a complementary dessert since we were celebrating our honeymoon. Definitely would recommend!

We had a fabulous experience this afternoon. Our server, Jon was knowledgeable and attentive, with attention to detail. We were visited by a charming manager, Cody that checked in on us and ensured our meal was special. Definitely worth the visit and we will be back in the near future!!

Always a great experience. The food, drinks and service on point every time. Just a suggestion but maybe more ketchup for the fries. The ratio is off 😁

Their bouillabaisse was just wonderful! But to enjoy the soup the two tiny toasted slices of bread was disappointing. The manager was so accommodating and understood about wanting to enjoy the soup with the bread. Although the server told us there was a charge for another order, there was no extra charges on the bill! We ate outside in the cool breeze. Great time after not seeing friends over a year!

We were seated outside at a nice table. Our server was very good. I was disappointed with my Caesar salad with fish. The fish was small and cold. Ive had it 2xs before so i knew the fish is served freshly cooked and the size was larger. My guests had mixed reviews. The beet salad with fish was also served with a similar fish but the guest of honor loved her dish, seafood in a nice broth.

Excellent dining venue.
The local farm chicken from the Hawaii island was tasty and soft on the palate - lean with minimal ligaments.

Merrimans is the absolute best place for dining.
The service is great and the food is fabulous-fresh and tasty and so satisfying.
There is a wide variety of wines and cocktails and other refreshing drinks.
We could go there every night and not tire of the atmosphere and ambiance.
Everyone is so friendly and we feel so welcome.

Everything was exceptional. Every plate was delicious and priced well. The seafood was one of the best I had. The service was great as well, except the server took my fries when I wasn’t finished eating. But overall a 5/5 experience.

It was a nice dinner in general. The food was good, just a little overpriced for what it is. Great wine selection. Their hand crafted cocktail menu was small and delicious. The service was amazing. If I came back, it would be for that.

Staff tried very hard to make this a great experience for us since we love Merrimans on the Big Island. Food was not up to par. Too much dressing on salads. Steak not cooked correctly. Too much time between courses. We expect excellence when eating at Merrimans. I hope they are working out the kinks. The comped our drinks to make up for a few mistakes. Management was great. But all in all I think I will pass on Honolulu Merrimans for a while.
