Receptionist/greeter had no personality. Made us feel like it was an inconvenience for her to show us to our table.

From the point you enter the restaurant and have been greeted by Sharie you know its going to be a wonderful experience. She is so genuinely kind and friendly. We were shown to a table and promptly greeted by a waiter and welcomed. We were a party of 4 and chose the Restaurant Week menu. MW does such a wonderful job with this yearly event and we are always pleased with the selections. The restaurant uses quality ingredients and they are clever with the way they prepare their dishes.
It's always a treat and we like to trade bites and we all feel everyone had a great meal!

Perfectly cooked and seasoned fish and steak. They allowed us to split one wine pairing between two people. Service staff among the best. Good location, within walking distance of home and the mall.

Excellent care taken from the host stand till our desserts came. We had the same waiter as we always and dinner was excellently executed as always.
We had three kiddos with us and we asked them for the kids burgers which they had ran out of. But chef wade said if we could wait a bit they would make fresh ones right away.
They were great burgers made from Brandt farms beef.
We chose the 5 course meal and every dish came out on time and hot from the kitchen.
Their scallops and fish was my favorite dishes for the night.
We’ll be back for sure!

The foie gras and tuna with uni starters were great. Desserts were awesome and great drink selections. We had old fashion and sazarac, both done very well.

The waiter was very knowledgeable about the food ingredients and sources. He was also very addictive and professional. The food was great, though just a bit salty for my taste. However the fish was cooled to perfection and the portion was a good serving size. The dessert was amazing, they did a great job in balancing the acidity and the sweetness. Overall I would make another trip back to MW.

We changed our dinner reservations last minute to MW and we are SO HAPPY we did. Alex was our server and he was fantastic. The entire experience was incredible and the food was out of this world, we had a tough time deciding what to order! We decided to go the route of shared plates and ordered mostly off the starters side of the menus. Our top two favorites were the pork & foie gras wontons and spicy pork bao buns. WOW. I mean, when a restaurant provides too notch complimentary bread (house made onion focaccia and ginger, scallion aoili) you know you’re in for a treat. I’m so happy we saved room for dessert and got the banana cream pie dish. Insane!! I could go on about this restaurant and high recommend to anyone visiting Oahu!

We had a mixed experience at MW. The service was terrific. The room was pleasant and quiet enough for conversation, which is a rarity these days. The food was uneven. The persimmon salad appetizer and the desserts were outstanding. The unagi and butterfish arancini, the mocha crusted kanpachi, and the paella were just okay. They were well prepared but not delicious; rather boring actually. We will not go back to MW in the future. While one appetizer and both desserts were outstanding, this restaurant did not measure up to our expectations for a special Hawaiian dinner.

There were just a few tables that were occupied but the noise level was very high. I know that it’s “in” to have a lot of noise, but I’ll have to keep that in mind when I book my next reservations and book elsewhere if I want to have a quiet talk with my dinner.

Food was great - however they forgot our anniversary after we made a note on reservations and called ahead. Wouldn't have been too bad if they didn't say ahead of time they'd take care of something special for us.

Staff is very professional and warm. Darren, our server was great!!!! Food is innovative and tasty.
I will be back, especially since they know how to apply my reward points; had a very disappointing experience with another restaurant who refused to apply the points.

All I can say is that I this place, while a bit on the smaller size, is a wonderful restaurant. Lots of great and imaginative dishes. Definitely save room for dessert.

My wife and I enjoyed the experience. Highs - food, service, atmosphere. What stood out to me was the organized, controlled, smooth operation exhibited by skilled kitchen personnel. No one out of control, ansy or visibly challenged regardless of the volume of orders to be met. The head chef appeared to be monitoring how the restaurant as a whole was operating, including reaction by diners to service and food.
Thanks for the anniversary piece of cake. I have a few manini suggestions for improvement:
1. Upon entering, guests should not have to wait more than - let's say 15 seconds or longer for those at the front desk/reception area to end telephone calls before receiving some type of acknowledgement of having arrived, even if its, "Good evening or welcome, I'll be with you in a moment."
2. Many of the waiters, bus help are young. Maybe its my age, but what they had to say about the menu, particular dish upon presentation, or even bread and spread while of interest, was rattled off too fast so that only portions were taken in. I didn't feel comfortable asking them to repeat at a slower delivery.

First time in and a little hard to find the place, but well worth it for a great meal and exceptional service from the entire staff. The MW candy bar was a great way to finish the meal; it was one of the best desserts I’ve ever had!

MW will continue to be one of “go to” places for us. We were dining out to celebrate a birthday and as usual, MW was top notch. Our server was terrific- extremely knowledgeable about everything on the menu. (I had no idea it took so long to prepare the fried chicken dish!) The dessert menu was a bit different and didn’t reflect the donuts they normally have - we were bummed because that’s one of our favorites! Our server mentioned something to the kitchen and next thing you know... Donuts appeared!

Thanks MW for a delicious meal! Can’t wait to see the new menu items soon!

It was hard to find the place because it was not facing the road on my first visit.
The overall flavor is strong, with Asian Taste included.

Great food...very creative offerings...generous portions. Individually, the servers were outstanding although there was a lack of communication amongst them as one would seemingly be unaware of requests made to another just moments before. As an example, one server asked if I wanted a refill of my soft drink and I asked if they could wait until later for a refill then in the next moment I was presented with a fresh drink glass by another server. Nothing wrong with that in many instances, but still...

I felt it was overpriced for what was ordered. Food & service were just ok, nothing exceptional. Heard rave reviews but I was not impressed. I’m glad I tried it but doubt that I’d go again.
