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...

Always a pleasure to be greeted by Sherie and served by Richie!
They exceed my expectations!!!

Would just like to say the bench tables are so close together the neighbors can hear everything we say and we can hear everything they say. :(

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.

I’ve been there a number of times
But that night food was a little salty
Even the people who joined us said a little salty. Just my opinion
Everything else was good

Greeted very courteously and sat promptly. Very informative and professional waiter. Everything our entire party ordered was delicious. The restaurant should, however, have had more waitstaff. Ours was spread pretty thin. He had too many tables for a restaurant like this. For the price, we should have had shorter wait time in between each course including getting the bill.

It was hubby's 57th birthday and I wanted to take him somewhere special and tasty, so I selected MW Restaurant. It was the right choice. Everything was first class: from our host/server Alex, the delicious food, the ambiance (one of the benefits of coming early) and the attentiveness we received. We will definitely be back in the near future.

The evening was very enjoyable. We were celebrating the Birthday of one of the group. 3 of us opted for the 3 course tasting menu and were very happy with the choices. The other 2 chose off the menu and were quite happy with their choices. As always, the desserts were a highlight of the menu. The decor of the restaurant does not complement the quality of the food. As a former restaurateur, we had a motto that a successful restaurant is like a 3 legged stool. All the legs must be equal, the food, the service and the atmosphere or the place is not in balance. The food and the service was very strong at MW.

The food is always delicious but unfortunately the service was slow and a little chaotic... I know it was very busy but still disappointing for restaurant of this caliber. It’s still one of my fav in Honolulu!

My wife loved her mochi crusted Kampachi. The crab cakes were as good as any I've tried. Never had bad crab cakes but these were wonderful. The desserts were to die for. Tried Banana Foster and a chocolate cake.

Dining at MW Restaurant was my family's first experience there. We shared an appetizer, nachos with poke and guacamole and a salad, local beets with goat cheese. I enjoyed nachos because neither poke or guacamole had onions in them, and this appetizer was more than enough for four of us. The beet salad was small. I would order the nachos again.

We liked being able to order entrees that were part of either the three or five course sets. Also, MW had chicken nuggets and fires for my 10 YO. I enjoyed my seafood paella as the scallops were very tasty. My spouse did not enjoy her mochi crusted fish because she thought the mochi was oily and tasted oily.

日本語メニューがあります。3品のコースと5品のコースがありますが、量が多いので5品のコースならおなかを空かせていった方がいいです。サービスはフレンドリーで、気取りがなく、心地よいものでした。テーブルの担当が全てサービスするスタイルではなく、気づいたスタッフが対応してくれる日本式のサービススタイルなので、待つ時間が少なく、効率的です。
飲み物は少し高めかと思いました。
夫婦で行きましたが、2人とも3品のコースをチョイス、メインとデザートをそれぞれ違うものにしてシェアしました。
ワインのボトル1本、カクテル1杯、食後にコーヒー1杯ずつで、チップ込みで約3万円くらいでした。
平日のランチや、ハッピーアワーにも行ってみたいです。
また行きたいお店です。

来週に誕生日を迎える私のために、最後にお店からクッキーのプレゼントがあり、サプライズで嬉しかったです。
お料理は創作料理がメインで、色んな国のテイストがMIXされていて、誰にも食べやすい味で美味しかったです。
飲み物の種類が多かったが、料理ももっと種類があれば良かったかなと思いました。

A return visit for me, first time for my cousin. She was very impressed by how refined and finessed the food is, in presentation and flavor. Portion sizes are perfect. Service is always pleasant and helpful. MW is one of my go-to restaurants for foodies.

As usual food was excellent and desserts were ah-mazing. But, I asked for a quiet table and was put RIGHT in the front by the door at a table for 2. I asked to move but was told table toward back was reserved. Hmmph. Mine was reserved too! It was also very very hot there as AC did not seem to be working that well. Other than that, this is still one of my favorite restaurants.

正直に言うと、
せっかく5種類のプレートセットをチョイスしたが、、
料理の一品で、そうめんと説明有るのに、使われてなかったり、、
最後のデザートまでやたら、待たされたり、
観光できた客より、常連さんや有名人を優遇するのはわかるが、
あまりに雑に感じて、悲しくなった。
もう一度行きたいか?と言われたら、、行かないかなー。
