Made reservations for Father’s Day dinner. We got there a lot earlier than expected and luckily they were able to accommodate us after a few minutes.

They had a set menu for Father's Day consisting of nine courses which included; seafood salad, clam chowder, asparagus and palm, roast duck and pork hash mushu, smoked opah belly, tofu curry stew, prime rib, vegetable medley and choice of dessert. In addition we ordered Kushi oysters and roasted scallops even though our waiter did warn us that earlier diners were taking food home because it was too much. The food was served family style.

With this many courses it's a challenge to space out the dishes so one can fully enjoy each dish. To the staffs credit, they did a pretty good job until the end when they served the opah and prime rib at the same time.

The staff did a wonderful job keeping the water glasses filled and clearing the plates on a timely manner. The only complaint if any was the opah was dry and may have been over cooked. Overall the food was ok, my father enjoyed it so that's all that matters. They also gave us complimentary bags of baked goods to take home which was a nice touch.

I’ll definitely be back to try their regular menu.

Food was wonderful as always. Great presentation, imaginative recipes and of course totally exceptional desserts! The poke nachos were great, mango salad excellent, and miso butterfish melt in your mouth delicious.

A couple glitches in the service. One of our party had ordered a substitute in the three course menu (mango salad instead of the appetizer trio—we’d already had a round of appetizers) but got the trio instead. Also—why always just one round of bread? It’s tasty and useful in mopping up the wonderful sauces. Anyway, one of our party asked for more bread (for all) and he got a second piece— but nobody else. Caused grief at the table!

Sake selection picked by the bartender was superb and the Italian red wine got very good reviews from the wine drinkers.

I would absolutely recommend MW Restaurant. My niece and I went there to celebrate her 40-something birthday and we had a wonderful time. The receptionist was very professional and kind. My niece had a hard time deciding what she wanted to order but our server, Carrie, was very kind and patient. Finally she decided on the Loco Moco with the eggs scrambled and over white rice rather than the fried rice, as Carrie said the fried rice was a bit spicy. My niece, unlike me, doesn't like spicy, so she decided on white rice which was the right choice. She enjoyed the Loco Moco but could only finish half the portion---she took the rest home for another meal. I ordered the Opah (a fish I love) and it did not disappointed. Steamed "Chinese Style" with bok choy, it was tasty and flaky and I was tempted to lick the bowl, but not wanting to embarrass my niece, decided against it. LOL! I, for one, will definitely be back. Keep up the great work!

Service and food were great. We loved our dishes and the fact that the chef its pretty lax about how you can order pretty much anything from the menu. For example, you can order an entree from one of the course menus ala carte.

MW never disappoints -- from the cheerful hostess greeting each guest to ono food and the staff who are attentive and never fail to thank you for coming. As usual, our waiter Richie made sure we got the dessert we wanted although we ordered the prix fix lunch.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience and would not only return but rave about it to friends and family. We were impressed by the service we received because our waiter was outstanding. He was knowledgeable and able to explain the intricate aspects of appetizers and entrees and make recommendations that were on point.

From the moment I was greeted at the door by Ms Sherry, I knew I was home. The food is the best of the best, putting competition to shame. Try the happy hour deals from 2-5 Mon-Fri if you are looking for a great deal. And save room for dessert!

I love the ahi nachos! The new happy hour menu has lots of choices, I loved the fried okra. Also I tried the special pot pie, and almost fell out of my chair. So goooood! Too bad no room for desert. My friend got the coffee creme brulee, and it looked great. Must have been too, because he never offered me any.

The food was very good. Overall, a good place to have a nice dinner. The service was a little slow and they realized it; so, the removed the charges for our round of drinks at the beginning and also the desserts were complimentary. That redeemed the slow service because they were busy. That was great - thank you!

Our server, Dion, was excellent. The Boubon Dreamsicle was an honest pour n the $65 3 course menu was a value. The scallops n opah were delicious and the lililkoi brulee was to die for. I liked the convenient off street parking and since it was my wife's birthday, the greeting on her menu and our request for gluten-free dishes for her were graciously accommodated. We visit Oahu once a year from San Diego and appreciate fine dining and thoughtful service.

A rather nondescript building from the outside. Once inside and seated the service is nonstop without being obtrusive. Gastronomical delight awaits with every order. Beautifully plated dishes worthy of food art. The crab cakes were fabulous as was everything else. A bit pricey, but go for it!
