    Excellent service in a space that is beautifully decorated. A little hard to find-On the second floor next to the Waikiki Market. We had the garlic shrimp and the catch of the day (Japanese marlin) and both were wonderful. The chocolate lava cake is to die for.

    The service was very good. The food was well seasoned and the favors interesting. Nothing was overwhelming or heavy. I had the dungeoness crab noodles and my partner had the garlic shrimp with forbidden rice. The shrimp was perfectly grilled and delicious! The hamachi kudos was fresh and lively. After dinner you can walk around the market.

    The smoked fish dip, crudo, and local fish (swordfish) was delicious. Drinks were very good. The location at the back of the market was odd.

    Honestly-if your focus is well made cuisine, and you’re perfect dinner doesn’t require an ocean view, Mai-tai, or ukulele-this is the best restaurant in Oahu The Chef is fantastic, we ordered multiple courses, and found each to be exceptional Would 100% return and advise you to do likewise It’s like Eataly, in Oahu.

Bryan is an outstanding server. He’s so knowledgeable and can describe in incredible detail all the interesting notes in the cocktails and food. Thank you for an outstanding evening.

    This was my second time at Olili and it was just as good as the first time. I had an Asian take on stuffed cabbage rolls that contained some earthy and delicious mushrooms. It's a real find in Waikiki.

    Everything about this experience was more than I could have asked for. The entire staff was SO knowledgeable and attentive. I come from the restaurant industry myself and the service experience made me want to drop my current career and work with them tomorrow. The teamwork, all of it. I could go on and on. Haha The food & cocktails were SO incredible as well! Everything we ate had such complex flavor profiles and you could tell there was a lot of care and creativity that went into each cocktail and dish. We had the kanpachi crudo, bone marrow (to die for), chili crab noodles, and the crispy Kona kanpachi. I would order it all again, but i also cannot wait to try the rest of the menu. The space is also extremely aesthetically pleasing. We will definitely be coming back!

    A hidden gem! Exceptional service from every employee there, and the space itself was cute and comfortable. We had the chili crab noodles and the crispy kanpachi over Portuguese bean soup, and really enjoyed both dishes. The portion sizes were perfect - filling, but we didn't feel heavy after. The cocktails also stood out to us. Overall, great spot for date night!

    This place is on the cusp of being great but the food just isn’t quite there. The flavor profiles don’t always match. I was there for the 2024 new years tasting menu. The best thing on that menu was the dumpling. It was very well balanced. Everything else was constantly missing the mark. If they changed the way ingredients were cooked they could have elevated the dish. Sometimes items seemed clunky or overpowering. Overall the food was disappointing but the service was amazing and it is also very beautiful in there. It’s unfortunately in a market which makes it seem a little cheap. I hope they are able to elevate the food a bit more and I could see this being a beautiful place to dine.

    Fantastic experience from the second we walked in. Beautiful restaurant and enthusiastic staff. The food is absolutely creative, delicious and beautifully presented. We went for New Years Eve and loved that it was a price fixe and all was included. Courses were perfectly timed and paired with champagne and cognac. There was a musician guitarist that was on par we loved. The staff was professional and seemed to enjoy our reaction to each special course. I would definitely recommend this for a special occasion, and I can't wait to go back. Maybe any day we wake up is a special occasion.
