Being that it was our first time to MW Restaurant, from the moment we arrived we experienced exceptional service from the hostess to our waiters and even busboys who brought out our food, cleared our table and refreshed our beverages. They greeted my wife by calling her by her first name and wished her with a Happy Birthday greeting. By the time I got into the restaurant my wife and family were already being taken to our table. The food was exceptional! It was a little noisy when we arrived with all the patrons in the restaurants but as time went by it wasn't even noticeable anymore. The waiter at the very end of our meal brought out a special birthday dessert for my wife which made her night ever so special! For what we paid, it was worth every penny.
Superb dining experience. The food was exceptional and a very friendly staff. Highly recommended.
Everything was terrific except the beer was a bit salty. Great experience overall.
It was a 1st time birthday experience
The only thing missing which I love is the birthday persons name on a menu to take home in rememberence if the special occassion
Just loved trying another great Honolulu restaurant.
Wonderful lunch! The food is superb and the service is friendly and efficient. One of my favorite restaurants - try it!
Phenomenal food and service was even better! Eric was absolutely AMAZING. He provided excellent recommendations on good choice/options and he went the extra mile to make my children feel extra special. Thank you Eric for making our special evening so wonderful!
We had an early reservation so we could enjoy some of the happy hour specials. We especially enjoyed the scallops tempura and would go back to have that again. The surf and turf, butterfish and steamed opah were all delicious.
Fantastic food and a thoughtfully paced experience in a simple setting. The Korean pulled pork bao, mochi crusted kampachi, and tropical crème brulée desserts are all musts. MW was perfect for celebrating our anniversary.
Excellent food, service, deserts!!!! Awesome Experience!!!
Highly recommended 🤙🏽
Enjoyed old and new menu items—food consistently good; as well as service.
Our food was beautiful and delicious! A spectacular evening to explore true culinary artists. I appreciated the detailed explanations of each dish presented.
Wanted to go to MW for my birthday since we were in Honolulu this time for it and MW is our Favorite Honolulu restaurant. Once again we were not disappointed. We both ordered the five course tasting dinner. My wife is gluten sensitive and they once again did an excellent job making her menu meet her dietary needs. The five appetizer starter was amazing and the substitutions for my wife were equally good. The Fish course was their Kompachi which is pretty incredible and something we’ve water on every trip. The scallops were perfectly done on the next course which included abalone and orzo, my wife had baby bok Choi as a substitute. The beef tenderloin with the added foie gras which melted in our mouths. Dessert was a passion fruit creme brûlée which was layered with tapioca and was a great finish for an incredible birthday meal. Thank you very much!
Second time within a couple months. Not disappointed. Past review ditto.
Initial greeting? No one at receptionist desk.
Service was impeccable. Food was ultra delicious, although gnats were flying about and one landed in plate.
Appetizers terrible. Steaks were medium well we ordered medium rare. How can you mess up a steak? Sauce was over salted. Delicious desserts. Won’t be coming back soon.
The menu presented everyday always has something to tempt my palate. The pre fixe lunch menu may be the best deal in town. Service is impeccable.
The service was great and the food was fantastic. Would definitely recommend it!
Place was overall very good. Food and service was good. The ambiance is a bit lacking, but I would definitely recommend for the food and service.
Great device. Delicious food. Timing for food to come out was just perfect
Great service and food but way too loud
Exceptional food served with nuanced flavor variations. Attentive and friendly staff, nice wine list all in a casual atmosphere
The food at MW is interestingly different from everyday presentations of various fish, beef and poultry. The flavors are fantastic. I loved my dish but others had mixed feelings about theirs. It's as if the chefs were too creative, if there is such a thing. It is a beautiful restaurant, though, with attentive waiters.
Prices were different from the website to the restaurant. Fried rice was not appetizing to my husband and he loves fried rice. Side potatoes was OK. Desert was good but unexpected of looks. The butterfish was quite good and I love butterfish.
Good food but very small portion. Need to order more dishes
We went post Valentines Night, so they were out of some choices that we wanted, the restaurant was not crowded when we got there but our drinks took forever to get to us!
Everything we ordered was good!
They were still offering a Valentine’s Day prix fix menu, which turned out to be fabulous. I especially enjoyed the soup, which was superb, as well as their featured fruit crepe brûlée, which was simply remarkable. And they served me a gin-ger fizz cocktail that may be the best mixed drink I have enjoyed in my two weeks on
I would recommend only to those who enjoy Asian food, with a twist of fusion.
Great food. Great for special occasions.
The food was excellent. We had a great time. There was a special Valentine's menu that was really good.
Our annual anniversary celebration spot. Never fails to deliver!
Valentines Day & the ambience was no where to be found - no candles, no flowers, no nada.
As usual MW did not disappoint. Food & service were outstanding!
Went there for lunch and was greated as soon as we stepped in. The service was excellent and the food was good as well. MW makes a house Hibiki ice that is awesome especially if u like whiskey. Great place lunch or dinner.
Burger was amazing!
This is a great restaurant to go to for date night! The food and drinks are creative, savory and simply delicious! The ambience is fairly lively with an amazing drink selection!
The food was excellent. The spicy pork bao appetizer is a meal in itself — very generous portion. The paella was very good and the butterfish collar was a surprising but flavorful element. The Asian-style short ribs were perfectly done. Service was very friendly and comfortably attentive. Our waiter’s suggestion of the shave ice dessert was a great finale to the meal.
Fine dining for lunch. The three-course lunch special was an outstanding value. Service was spot-on.
MW is one of my "go to restaurants" when I'm in Honolulu...which as of late, is rare. But nonetheless I feel perfectly at home there and their food continues to amaze me in a casual and fun atmosphere.
