We thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The food was excellent . I enjoyed the appetizer. The monchong somen noodle was favorable. The dessert with the crunch was excellent. The waiters were knowledgeable and helpful.

Great service and food tasted awesome. The seafood paella was filling and blended different flavors from the sea in a bright and subtle mix. Super filling and everyone enjoyed, you won’t be disappointed here.

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。

Rushed service. Server asked for food order before bringing drinks. Food must have been already prepared. It came as soon as our order was placed. Poke dish was creative and enjoyable. The paella was mushy and did not have characteristic flavors or presentation. The waiter recommended it. It was another prepared dish that could come out of the kitchen quickly. Our Uber ride from Waikiki and return took more time than our meal and added another $30.00 to a mediocre, expensive meal.
We ate at MW in 2017 and had the opposite experience. That was the reason for our return .

The hostess was awesome. Very courteous and efficient. Handling 2 phone lines, giving driving directions to lost customers, seating guests, yet still smiling and made us felt welcomed to the restaurant.
Service was very slow. Waitress told us twice that she would bring iced tea refill, but by the time she actually brought it, it was about the same time as she gave us the bill.
Grilled Kalbi was too sweet and overwhelmed with too much sauce. Mochi crusted monchong was very salty even for my daughter who loves salt. Dessert was ok.
I didn’t think the food was as good as the ratings.

Sadly the food was not up to par. No more than one vegan option, 3 course meal had smaller portions. Garlic fried rice looked slopped together. Pork loin was so tough that even cutting it with a knife was challenging. Coffee was ordered by three at our table but one was never delivered. Bread and butter plates with butter knives were at each place setting but nothing was offered. We dined here several months ago and enjoyed our meal. Sadly we will not likely return.

HAPPY HOURの時間帯で遅めのランチ。ランチコースは28ドル
て、前菜3種、メインはOPAをチョイス。少し生っぽさが気になったので、ウエイターに伝えると、生でも食べられる魚なのでレアで提供しているが、気になるなら再調理します。という親切さ。HAPPY HOURスペシャルは、4品チョイス。アヒのタルタル、mandoとグラタンは、おススメ。

We had the oxtail soup and was disappointed with the contents - 2 large pieces of oxtail, no beef brisket, chunks of fat, soup was so so. I had the oxtail soup about 2 weeks ago and it was excellent.
The dessert - mango shave ice was delicious.

MW restaurant seems confused on what they want to be at dinner...with high-priced, "fancy" food in an up-scale venue while allowing very casually dressed customers. Additionally, the service was mediocre and pushy with the waitress asking for orders shortly after being seated or interrupting diners in mid-conversation to push for their dessert orders. Food was over-priced as well...$40 for miso butterfish that could be had at the same or better quality and more quantity at many other local/Japanese restaurants.

We went for the 3 course set for $65, upgraded to Paella for additional $10. The foie gras & pork gaugee on the appetizer trio was the crown & winner. Paella was cooked perfectly with the right amount of spice, loaded with lovely seafood, large prawn, lobster claw, abalone (overcooked), & a delish crispy fried kampachi kama (collar). There were 2 choices of desserts, mango and lilikoi, so we had one of each,
both were wonderful.
Our waiter was attentive and recommened (he had good knowledge of bourbons & whiskeys) a lovely Blanton bourbon to my husband. The bourbon is so good that all of the large wine stores are sold out when we tried to buy a bottle today.
My husband really enjoyed his birthday dinner!

I would recommecd the restaurant can some reservations. My friend and I went with the prix fix lunch menu. We each chose different items for course and all was okay excerpt for the entrees. I had the loco moco and my friend had the meatball sandwich. The meat in both were really dry with no flavor. Neither of us finished that course and not because we were full.

Creativity and successful execution apply to all aspects of this restaurant: cocktails, appetizers,entrees and desserts. The service at the bar and table is friendly, knowledgeable, attentive and responsive. Even with an open kitchen the background noise level is low which permitted quiet conversation with my dining companion.. Tables are well spaced. We had crab cakes, amberjack, scallops, smashed potatoes, mango shaved ice and coffee. Perfection! The emphasis is on quality not quantity. We departed well satisfied, but not overstuffed.

I wanted to enjoy it i really did, family coming in, good word of mouth, Menu on line looked great. What could go wrong, Service was good , seating was good, The deserts were just the best i would go back for those for sure. Not much else was anything better than any other place, (The food was ok) and the actual variety of what was online compared to the actual menu is no comparison Hopefully a bad night.
