    We ate here twice during our stay and each time was great. Impeccable service both times. The bartender makes the best cocktails, must try Dealers Choice! A selection of vegan and non vegan dishes. All delicious. Try the heart of palm and if it’s on the menu, try a fresh pasta. Oysters are good too. Everything is delicious! Cannot recommend enough.

    This restaurant has so much work to do to meet its potential. Our party of 5 arrived for our 6pm birthday dinner reservation and were kind of half seated by the hostess; she pointed us to our table. Our assigned server brought us water and gave us a moment with the menus. A few minutes later another server brought us a plate of bread and butter. We thanked them and began snacking…it was delicious. A few minutes later another server brought us our their fish special; we told them we had not ordered. They realized it was for the table for two beside us. A couple of minutes later the vegan entree was brought to our table; we told them we had not order that. They realized it was for the table for two beside us. We joked with the table beside us about it and they mentioned they had ordered but not received bread. That is when we all realized the bread was an appetizer order and they had given us their order. After a few more minutes of confusion our assigned server finally returned to take our order. Neither table received an apology or explanation. We ordered drinks and a few appetizers for the table and our server started to go place the order but we stopped her to ask what the ranch and fish entrees were. She told us neither was available; they had sold out of both and the only available entree option was the vegan entree. At this point we are a bit upset. The hostess did not mention any sold out limitations to us, our server did not mention it when she came to our table either time. It took us to ask about them. Had we known there were only appetizers and vegan options upon arrival or sitting we probably would have left and found another restaurant. We decided to eat and drink what we had ordered. When those arrived the prawn/shrimp appetizer was over cooked to the the point each bite was rubbery and mushy. The oysters were underwhelming and were just ‘meh’. The chicken liver mousse and vegan beignet were tasty. Overall it was a huge disappointment.

    Not as many vegan options anymore, was hoping to have the truffle gnocchi and pesto pasta but right before we went they were taken off the menu. The one vegan entree the laulau pithiviwr was very good though.

    The vegan tasting menu was wonderful-a good mix of complimentary flavors and interesting presentation. Although each portion was small, we ended the meal feeling pleasantly satisfied. Our server gave a short explanation of each dish and that added to the enjoyment of the meal. We were pleased with the pacing of the meal, and the attentiveness of our server. Finally, the cocktails were top notch!

    We dined here for an early Valentine’s celebration. Although they were out of most of the items we wanted to try. Jesse and the staff made us feel confident in our second and third choices. The bartender even crafted us the perfect spicy old fashioned. We’re excited to come again to experience their chef counter tasting menu! Mahalo nui natuRe!

    We dined at natuRe Waikiki on Feb 11. The staff greeted us warmly and Kristina, our server, was absolutely outstanding. Our meal was Five Stars delicious - the highest quality. We were seated at a table near the bar and the ambience was relaxed and welcoming. We really enjoyed dinner here. 100% recommend this place.

    Amazing menu, this place would easily be M1 in NYC, in fact I liked it better and at $120 it’s a great deal. The only thing to improve would be the timing. Our first course came a full 50 minutes after we sat down and the delay left a less-than-ideal impression. Highly recommended, but come with patience.

    I get it's a tasting menu. But the break between course was excessive. Total dinner was 2.5 hours for a 6 course tasting menu. I felt the server was not watch the pace of the meal and had the kitchen fire too slowly.

    A wonderful restaurant with amazing food! Very nice ambiance and greeted immediately and taken to our private dining room. It was intimate and the waiter was very detailed in his explanation of all dishes. My partner and I ordered a lot of cocktails and all of them tasted amazing.

    Nature Waikīkī is an experience. When you walk in, you’re greeted by a beautiful Stonewall and a courtyard and then upstairs is a beautiful bar area with indoor and outdoor seating. The vibe is minimalist and chic. The food is beautiful and amazing. I usually go with my husband and do the price fix menu. One of us will do the vegan and the other will do the meat and will share everything. The drinks are great and they have a large selection of natural wines. This place is definitely a great spot to enjoy a special meal we usually come here for a birthdays or anniversaries.

    Menu creativity, culinary uniqueness, and (im sure) the preparation is next level at natuRe! Food honestly was good, our highlights were the papaya, prosciutto, & burrata, heart of palms with the black garlic sauce. Cocktails with local ingredients complimented the menu but what was worth a mention was -- as a native hawaiian foodie, it really made me smile to see luau leaf on the menu especially still cooked and wrapped around the goods, that being local mushrooms all in nice pastry crust. Thanks natuRe

    The food is exceptional, especially the plant based tasting menu. The servers are friendly and professional and the atmosphere very stylish. The only issue was the length of the tasting menu experience, which was too long. We didn’t receive our final, main course until after we have been seated for nearly 3 hours, which was unexpected. The food and friendly staff make me want to return but the dining time will give us pause.

    Excellent food but even better service. Our server was Shelby and she was absolutely amazing. She was so kind and even brought a dessert out to celebrate our pregnancy! The bartender was awesome as well - she made some awesome “dealers choice” cocktails. Food was amazing - we did the gnocchi and rigatoni - would highly recommend. Definitely visit this spot!

    We made a return visit to natuRe waikiki; this time to try their tasting menu. They have an extensive wine list; I selected a 2015 Beringer Quantum; a blend from Napa consisting of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Sirah, 4% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec. It was dark, chocolaty with a hint of spice. They were out of truffles! My tablemate is allergic to shellfish so they substituted one course with its equivalent from the vegetarian menu. Course 1: A “truffle” made with sesame and peanuts. It looked like a small andagi topped with caviar and shaved coconut. It didn’t taste like coconut but it looked like it. Whatever, it was delicious. Course 2: Two pieces of smoked tuna atop a plate with a splash of vichyssoise and some type of edible flower … Were these mac nut blossoms? The plate came with a glass cover containing the smoke; when lifted you reveled in the smokiness. Course 3: An oyster covered with something yellow. The menu listed Big Island Beef and nori but I didn’t see that. It was topped with microgreens and another flower. It was served with their sourdough bread and ogo butter. My tablemate was served a fried piece of mozzarella atop a beet cream, the same microgreens and a dusting of green powder (tea?) Course 4: Came atop a flat glass platter … a slice of eggplant and watercress terrine with a large drizzle of finger lime sauce. Like the dishes preceding, this was food as art. The penultimate dish was lamb and slices of fennel in a delicate foamed broth. The fennel was the primary ingredient. The main course was a medallion of Maui Venison, a piece of heart of palm, fried leaves atop a black garlic sauce. The venison was so tender … I ate everything on the plate. We didn’t have dessert; I had a cup of black coffee. We enjoyed our leisurely 2.5 hour meal. The tasting menu changes regularly and the wine pairing, offers six glasses for $55, a deal. The menu is eclectic; the portions petite … perfect for us. Recommended!

    Chef table should be celebration of food and interest in making the art. Our chef said no words to us. Literally zero. Tasting menu literally bite sizes. Great knife skills, but proof is in the eating and there was so virtually to eat. Would have had nearly the same experience watching it on Instagram.

    We enjoyed our second experience at nature and would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys intentional independent artisan cuisine. Every dish is prepared with Care and the staff also really seem to care about what they are serving. This is not a restaurant you should go to. If you are searching for a big comfort meal. This is more of an art experience. But don’t get me wrong you will not leave hungry and you will leave satisfied.

    We had the most lovely meal at natuRe! My husband and I are in Honolulu on a babymoon for our first child and natuRe went above and beyond to make us feel celebrated 🩷 Our meals were delicious and they were so accommodating of my husband’s nut allergy and my vegetarianism. We highly recommend trying out natuRe for your next special occasion!

    Incredible dinner. Did the tasting menu with pairings. Excellent. Service attentive. Pricey but worth it.

    Once again NatuRe delivered a great experience. Everything was pristine from the tasting menu, the flavors in each dish and drinks, the wine pairing and a big thank you to Shelby for having taken such great care of our party. She memorized our names, gave upscale service and I personally really enjoyed when she was incorporating Hawaiian history in the dish presentation. The drinks as well are top notch. I certainly would recommend to stop by just to sit at the bar and enjoy Troy’s creation. Wine pairing with the tasting menu should be chosen hands down for anyone interested in wine and discovery of fun and interesting wines. Mahalo nui loa to the whole team for making even our 3rd time there very memorable.

    WORST EXPERIENCE FOR MY 40TH BIRTHDAY - DO NOT GO. I booked this restaurant for my 40th birthday months ago. I called them the day of the reservation because it seemed they had an earlier time slot to seat me and my friends earlier, which they confirmed they did - so we went to dinner 1hr earlier than we were supposed to. Upon arrival we found out that in switching this reservation time, they had moved us to the bar and out of the dining experience, which left us with limited choices for dinner. We had told the host when we called that we had someone with a gluten allergy, which they said they noted, but in moving us to the bar menu, it limited her to very few options. Our server seemed like he was on his first day at the restaurant, so it seems they don’t train people well. He wasn’t very knowledgeable about the menu. The menu also kept having items that weren’t even available - from wines to dishes. They told my friend they had gluten free pasta - then when she ordered it, magically there was none. When we got our food, most of the dishes were ok, but the steak we ordered was undercooked and tough. After all of these issues and KNOWING we went to this place for my birthday, they comped us nothing, didn’t even offer free dessert. The bar section they sat us in had 0 ambiance - you could come off the street in beach clothing and fit right in. I would never recommend this place and am disappointed that we spent over $120 per person for such a nightmare of a dinner. I can’t stress enough - DO NOT GO HERE. There are way better options in the area.

    This was my second time at this restaurant during work travels. I cannot recommend enough, especially if you are looking for a Michelin star level experience. Michelin doesn’t go to Hawaii otherwise I’m sure natuRe would be on the list.

    Great experience. Smaller space than expected and will opt for patio seating next time. Food is pretty great for the price of the course menu and appreciate that supplements were not pushed on us and the experience didn't feel incomplete without them. One thing I wished I knew was that chopsticks were available upon request. There were a few items in the course where I would've preferred having them.
