    It was a delightful experience. They went above and beyond to celebrate a friends birthday. However, the fish sandwich was to be Moroccan and it lacked the red pepper spiciness. Everything else was delightful. Mahalo

    I heard so many good things about merrimans. And i actually pass it everyday and it looks like its a great fun and social spot. Which, it is fun and social. But the food is awful. Terrible food. Very disappointing. Yes we eat out every day and maybe just expected more. Best dish was dessert!

    I would absolutely recommend Merriman's for lunch or dinner. The food and service is always terrific........except on this occasion. I couldn't figure out what was not right with my Wagyu burger. It's like the chef forgot to put seasoning in the patty. I've had this dish a couple time prior and it always tasted good. I didn't say anything to the waiter because I couldn't pin point what was different. When I went home, I looked at the menu and it was the mushrooms that was missing in the burger. I guess mushrooms make a difference in the taste. Next time I order this at Merriman's I'll be looking out for the darn mushrooms. My husband loved his Menpachi dish with strings beans and our guests really enjoyed their steak and mahi mahi.

    Our server, Kat made our evening one of the best here while in Hawaii. The ambiance was great (we sat outside), and our meals and drinks were top notch. Kat was the glue that held made the evening a cohesive pleasurable experience. She's knowledgeable and professional. This is my third experience at a Merriman's (in the past 10+ years) and it's still consistently good. Thank You, Merriman's ....we'll be back soon.

    My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Merriman’s. We had a wonderful evening and dinner. The outdoor seating was quiet and soothing with live music. Our server Michael was fabulous!! He was very friendly, knowledgeable and made our experience superb. The food was delicious. Their signature chicken dish and green curry with seafood was super tasty. We look forward to returning.

    Ok, so the service was fantastic and we had a really great time. The burger was delicious. However, the Greek salad was wayyyyy to spicy. I am not the person to send food back to the kitchen but it was so spicy it was practically inedible. I love merrimans but just wont get that salad

    The ambiance and service was one of the better highlights of our experience. Unfortunately, I expected more out of the food coming from Peter Merrimen. There was four of us, and our granddaughter, and celebrated my daughter's birthday. We ordered soups, salads, appetizers, entrees and desserts. All was mediocre at best. All in all, we spent about $450, and I felt like I could've spent that money elsewhere, and be satisfied. I couldn't see myself paying $56 dollars for a dry half over seasoned chicken, which was not even a premium Jidori or of better value. The details goes on, but just know we'll probably not go back there.

    以前ハワイ島の店舗での食事がとても良かったため、今回こちらを予約しました。雰囲気と接客は良かったですが、牡蠣がとても小さいものでとてもがっかりしました。このような商品を提供していると客は離れていってしまうと思います。 また味付けが濃すぎると感じました。ハワイ島での食事が感動的だった分、とても残念な気持ちになりました。 他は良いのでもったいないと思います。

We never had to ask for anything because our dinner was well orchestrated. The food was delicious and we left satiated. Will definitely be returning to Merriman’s Honolulu.

    From the moment we stepped in the service we received was immediate and exceptional. Once seated, we were greeted with a complimentary glass of Prosecco for our anniversary. The food was, as always, fantastic. When they discovered that we had dined at many of the Merriman’s restaurants the manager brought us a complimentary sample of their fried Kauai prawns. All of their restaurants are great but this evening was truly special.

    Merrimanʻs was a very nice restaurant and the food was so ono. Wanted to say that Kai, our waiter is excellent at this job, always checking on whether we needed or wanted anything, he made excellent suggestions to our afternoon adult beverages and made sure we knew of the dayʻs specialty and what the other items on the menu were about. The ambience was special and couldnʻt have asked for a better place to have had a lunch with our ohana. Mahalo no !!!

    Amazing food, service, ambiance. The hostess was so sweet, bartender was great, our server was perfect. We came straight from our elopement and everyone congratulated us, sent the table champagne for a toast and free dessert. That was very nice. My husband got the lamb, I got macadamia nut fish. It was delicious. If you’re looking for a special occasion restaurant or even just a nice dinner, this place is wonderful

    Awesome! Such a lovely dinner to celebrate my husband’s 77th birthday! Merriman’s made it so special with a glass of champagne welcome and such delicious birthday ice cream. Husband had the Lobster Pot Pie and he said that the lobster was just delicious. Pot pie filled with sweet lobster pieces. I had the pan fried chicken and it was cooked perfectly. I remembered this dish from a few years ago and it did not disappoint. We love the Merriman’s restaurants and have visited almost all of them. Mark was a very attentive server and took great care of us. Go and prepare to be wowed!
