    The service, ambiance, and sunset views are unequaled. Loved the International Violette and Mai Tai drinks. The 6 pieces of ahi sashimi were cut thick. All seafood was fresh, and they presented each fish on ice. We chose the Madai (Tai), acqua pazza (poached) style. The final prep is done tableside. We also enjoyed the filet mignon and mixed vegetables. Server Paul was professional as well as the many helpers. They gave our special occasion that extra touch.

    The view was spectacular. The service was impeccable. The food was mediocre and horribly overpriced. Go to breakfast or lunch- probably better food selection, quality and price.

    Had just arrived at hotel where restaurant located after full day of travel. Beautiful view from 30th floor but not into their fish style of service. You buy a whole fish to be prepared. We split a ribeye that was over cooked not medium rare. Perhaps our fault for ordering beef not fish but It’s on the menu should know how to prepare. Everything is a la carte. Would not recommend.

    To begin the elevator felt like a sauna(steamy hot air blowing) The staff was very young and they seem not to care , I did not see any strong management during my meal The cocktails were done sloppy. We order appetizer tuna and the restaurant ran out of wasabi, 20 min after putting in the main course order the waitress said they ran out of uni pasta, they also ran out of dangerous crab but she said they would have it the following day I also had to ask for the bread after sitting on the table for a good 15 min I would never back

    They should hire a sommelier. Truly beautiful spot in Waikiki. The staff was very accommodating and service great. Food was good - go with the special fish on display if you’re having seafood. The fish guy was awesome. And sides are very shareable. Big portions.

    Pesca is my favorite restaurant in Waikiki Food always good and fresh whole fish are delicious. Server Paul , Rebecca did great job and show excellent hospitality Massa in charge he did really good job ran good operations and checked on each table. We where surprised to See the wolfgang himself dining at his restaurant and he came to our tables checking on us and how is everything He is real great man Every time we meet him he shows how great entrepreneurs he is . Don't want to forget about Raffa the manager who was off but he followed up on my reservation and made sure I get the table I like and let the staff know Thank you Mr Wolfgang and son Peter one day I may meet you Mahalo

    Everything was wonderful except the food. The burrata salad had no flavor, except the roasted peppers. Salt, pepper, maybe some basil or balsamic? Nope. The boiled potatoes for the octopus were crunchy, I understand texture, but the potato was raw. The sautéed brussel sprouts looked boiled, they had absolutely not color, or texture from the sautee. The portabello mushrooms weren’t fully cooked, hard where the stem was removed, and again lacked any kind of flavor. The New York was cooked to perfection, but lacked salt. The lobster was unfortunately over cooked. Over all everything tasted bland and lacked flavor, which was super disappointing because the menu looks delicious but unfortunately is poorly executed. Food does not have to be overly complicated to be delicious, which is what I think is what Pesca is going for, but even natural ingredients need some form of seasoning.

    We celebrated a birthday at Pesca Waikiki Beach, on the 30th floor of the Ilikai. The weather was perfect and so were the views. There is an extensive wine list with bottles up to $21,000. We opted for a 2016 Chassagne-Montrachet from Domaine Blain-Gargnard. The wine was peppery and earthy but lacked fruit and substance; somewhat disappointing for $222. A Belle Glos for $98 would have been a better choice. Appetizers were the Beef Tartar and the Grilled Octopus; $29ea. The tartare was roughly chopped and unseasoned. It came with a quail egg atop and five pieces of toast, capers, tomatoes, onion, chives and whole grain mustard. It was left to the diner to combine the ingredients to suit one’s taste. The grilled octopus was tender and was served with a salad, wedges of red onion and slices of potato. The octopus was covered with a (sort of) relish that would have been perfect in the tartare. My tablemate ordered the lamb chops while I opted for the fish special: Halibut (7oz, $55) in a lemon butter sauce. Our server Erik came back and said they were out of lamb so we ordered a 16oz prime ribeye ($68). Sides included grilled asparagus ($16) and garlic rice ($10). The steak was a large, relatively thin cut of meat but it was prepared properly. The halibut was okay but the lemon butter sauce made it enjoyable. Interestingly, the garlic rice was my favorite dish; thin slices of deep-fried garlic sprinkled on top made it so tasty. Nothing on the dessert menu was a “must have” so I had coffee. Now, the nitpicks: •The menu was a single sheet of laminated paper; I didn’t expect to see this at a fine dining venue. The drink menu came in a beautiful blue binder. •The wine list was a 3-ring binder with paper that wasn’t punched properly; disappointing. •My coffee came in a cup found in a diner, already poured and without a saucer. Perhaps this wasn't the venue for us because of food allergies. Fix the issues noted; right now it's a guarded recommendation.

    Friday dinner with fireworks was amazing here. Dover Sole, grilled octopus, beef tartare, filet mignon were great and the pistachio cheesecake was heavenly. Broccolini was gently cooked and the local mushrooms were humongous and delish. Our wait staff, Jennifer and Zach, were exceptional and we are looking forward to going back!

    Unique restaurant! Expensive but worth it. You pick out the fish you want and pay by the pound. Fish is from here to Japan so if your from the mainland, you might be at a loss as to which to choose ! The staff is patient and willing to help guide you. Debone and removed the head at the table. Quite a skill set. Have fun and know it is very yummy! Enjoy!
