    Overall, it was a very nice evening. The honey miso butterfish is one of the best that I've had and the hubby loved his mochi crusted kampachi. The lilikoi yuzunade was very refreshing and the MW candy bar topped the night off. The service was excellent including the bartender that night who noticed we were waiting for the hostess (5 minutes) and showed us to our table. A little disappointing since we saw the hostess talking in the back as we were guided to our table. I wish I got his name but thank you for seating us! Other than that, it was a fantastic evening (valet, bartender, servers).

    From my experience of contacting the appropriate person to book your private room was somewhat difficult to get a call back from your restaurant. However once that took place and the prepaid requirements were explained to me the coordinator- it was a grand experience. We had among our ladies’ group one friend who had never gone to an afternoon tea. You set the bar high and she was absolutely delighted and has only high praises. Every item on this November menu was delicious. Service top notch. We appreciate the last minute accommodation of one lady with her keto dietary needs. As the coordinator it was my third time attending and I enjoyed each service having a different menu. The best of the high tea experiences with the private room.

    We had a wonderful time, were given our favorite table and excellent service from every team member - reception, the bus staff, waiter, bartender - all were attentive and appeared just at the right moments. The food was excellent as always. We shared an order of crabcakes, ordered the shortrib dinner, and 2 different desserts to share. This is our favorite "nice" restaurant for special occasions.

    If the dish says "mochi crusted" it's gonna be amazing. The cocktails were smooth, our waiter was attentive and always knew our needs (we didn't even need to ask for boxes), and man, the food lives up to the hype. At first, the ambiance was really nice for a quiet date out, but a couple large parties showed up (10+, looked like work parties) and it got considerably louder, almost felt like the food court. Regardless, we really enjoyed our time and will likely be back.

    The reservation was smooth. It was a little busy when we got there but not too bad. Our food took a little bit to come out but we got free soup to try and their food is great but a little salty at time but had good flavor overall. Dessert was good and we got a cute little cake for my partner’s bday. Cocktails were good too.

Fast and friendly service, great casual vibe and one of the best meals all around that I’ve had in a long time. Every course, drinks and especially dessert were top notch. Would highly recommend!

    Had not been back since they moved. Since our reservation was past 6:30, we were able to park on Kapiolani. The food and service was outstanding. Highlights were the miso butterfish and short rib with fois gras. Leave room for dessert (every one was amazing). Wine corkage a modest $25. We will definitely be returning.

While each of our food choices was superb, the Ahi Nachos and the Short Ribs were so delicious that we were tempted to lick our plates. Our server, Tyler, was knowledgeable, friendly, polite, attentive & helpful.

    Mr Kyle was great and so was the manager the drinks were phenomenal. The food had a bit lack with the gumbo but the mochi crusted (I think that’s how it call) it was good. And they did ask if we wanted something else to replace the gumbo but we choose not to and they took it out of the bill. Other than that I do recommend it

S/O to Kyle for saving my boyfriend's life with the Monster because it was like the only thing he really wanted in that time and you came in clutch, so thank you for that! Also, S/O to the person wrote the plate message out as I had requested through Open Table and also all the waitstaff for coming over to sing Happy Birthday to the "faka", you guys definitely made our night a very memorable one.

    My personal opinion is the dining room is very bright and a bit too noisy, there is nothing there to absorb sound from the kitchen, dishes being bussed and guests who are enjoying their conversations. Maybe 2700 k light bulbs would help with the harsh lighting. It feels like you’re in a corporate cafeteria/restaurant. Service and food is great, atmosphere was the only thing missing here.

    It was our anniversary. The food was excellent. We had the seafood gumbo that had 3 large scallops, half a lobster tail and 2 large shrimp. Soo delicious. My husband and friend had the Mochi crusted Kampachi and our other friend had the Braised Short Ribs. We had the Crab cakes as appetizer and the Yukon Gold Potatos as a side dish. I also had the seafood bisque. All four of us really enjoyed our meals. We topped it off with a Persimmon shaved ice and a Banana Cream pie dessert. Both were so refreshing and delicious. Because it was our anniversary they gave us a complimentary strawberry and Matcha napolean style dessert. That was so awesome too. All in all a wonderful evening. We will definitely be back to dine there again! One suggestion is that there should be better signage directing your customers to the Valet parking. Very confusing, going thru the service center of Velocity.
