    The value for the lunch specials is quite good and hard to compete with, especially at a restaurant with a great view. Unfortunately, the service is lacking, and it seems that the staff are not able the number of customers. Though the food was good, and the price was great, the less than spectacular service lessened the enjoyment of the afternoon.

    We requested a table by the window with a view of the ocean and the view was absolutely otherworldly with the lagoon pool, beaches, and deep ocean all visible at once. Possibly the best table in the house. They have an all day happy hour that starts from 11am so we got the calamari, which was very tasty with homemade cocktail sauce, and the Pescado (fish) tacos, which tasted very clean and delicious. The service was amazing and we received a small bowl of honey when we asked for honey to go with our coffees — definitely more than we needed but nice to have, I suppose. We hope to return again to try more of their menu items. Thank you!!

    The host was not nice, said that he would seat us and then took a call and then after the call he just left without telling us to follow him. We were sat in a back room, looks like they added more tables to accommodate more people. The back room was too bright and not nicely lit like the rest of the restaurant. It was also very loud and not romantic at all. Following our meal, we looked around and noticed that only people of color were sat in this back room and only white people were sat in their main dining room which was nicer. There were even empty table in the nicer main dining room as the place was only about 30% full, however, they still only sat white people in this nicer room. I would not recommend this place. Overpriced and bad service.

    We had high expectations of this place and was thoroughly let down. We spent $300.00 on a meal that was a complete disappointment. We each ordered the valentines special at $120 per person. My wife got the lobster and I got the steak. The lobster was rubbery and cooked poorly, the pineapple rice was awful and cold. The steak was ok and I’ve had better tasting steak at other places for less $, the mashed potatoes were lukewarm as was the asparagus, The soup was ok but tasted like progresso from the can and dessert tasted generic and not anything special. We should have ordered off the menu and it might have been better. The table next to us sent back the fish they got and refused to eat it but that’s their story. We might go back as the reviews were ok and other things on the menu looked good but were skeptical. We’ve spent way less and gotten way better. Also if management reads this; ya gotta do something about the bathrooms. It was dirty and the soap dispenser from longs was nasty looking. Theres more to write but I’m going to leave it at this. Hope the next time, if we go back will be better.

    Fish and chips lunch extremely disappointing. 3 SLIVERS of overdone fish that were smaller than the 3 potato wedges that came with it. Not even enough food for an appetizer. They should have picture of their plates or descriptions or the waiter could explain dish. I had to go get something to eat after this mini meal. Insulting. Was this supposed to be a joke? Also asked for cocktail sauce instead of tartar and that didn't happen. Never again.

    PESCA Waikiki definitely had some great seafood dishes/options and the ambience for the restaurant was very nice. Especially like that it was on a high floor of the ilikai hotel as you get nice city views. However what it definitely lacked was service. The waiters and hostesses were very nice but it took way too long to get anything out. By the time we got to our main dishes we definitely needed to leave. Just a reference we sat down on the table around 630p and didn’t get our main course till almost 10p. Overall, good food and ambience but be prepared to wait a long time for service.

    I really enjoyed myself - the food was amazing! the waiter Jeff was awesome, and the view was divine! the only thing missing was music. ONLY downside was that there was no selfparking but that's OK. I think Pesca Waikiki Beach will be my new place to bring clients, friends and family (happy hour ALL DAY?!). I look forward to coming back again and again.

    The food was good however the Spankorizo was watery. In addition the fish chowder appeared to be a bit colder than expected when served. And the white kidney beans in the chowder was crunchy (not quite fully cook to soft). Other than that, the food was excellent. The Eggplant and Zucchini Tower was great. Our waitresses Danielle and Echo served us well to meet our needs. In additon, I requested for the Uni Pasta with "no chile flakes" since I could not eat any spicy food. The Pasta sauce still tasted excellent without it. The fresh catch of the day swordfish was excellent, not dry, nice and moist. Finllay the Baklava, was delicious and tasteful. The ambience of the restaurant was excellent to watch the Friday night fireworks. Most of the table seating was by the window to enjoy the beautiful Waikiki scenery from the 30th floor. In an addition, the noise level was at a moderate level to hold a talk conversation. Excellent place to celebrate a special occassion or a special date. A thumps up for me.

    Though we had reservations for lunch and there were no people waiting to be seated, it took 10+ minutes before the Host came to seat us and that was only because we walked over to the bar to get someone's attention. We were seated where I had requested. The view of the lagoon and beach is beautiful. My dish was served quite a while before my friend's lunch. And though we asked for French's yellow mustard specifically for the hamburger it was forgotten and our server left before we could point this out. We had to ask 3 different people before we got the mustard. It was the wrong kind and given hurriedly before we could point that out nor was there an apology or explanation. By then, our food was cold. When we asked for it to be re-warmed the server seemed surprised but did have it re-warmed. Since I had fish, I didn't want it to be dried out by re-warming. The food itself was very good and nicely presented. The restaurant has been remodeled nicely and even with wood floors the noise level was low. Though Pesca is advertised as a casual restaurant, some of the patrons were "just walked off the beach" casual. Not a good look. In general, I liked Pesca especially since it is in our neighborhood but the staff needs to be more polished and attentive. Perhaps they were understaffed but it didn't look like it, on the floor, at least. Maybe the hold up was in the kitchen. Our server and staff that we interacted with were pleasant and affable. With a little bit of work, this will be a great place.

    My wife and I had seabass with sides. The food was prepared very well, presented attractively, and was delicious. Service was timely, friendly, and efficient. The ambiance was very pleasant, a bright, open, and spacious setting with an unobstructed ocean view and a wonderful view of boating activity and the sunset. It would really be challenging to find a better experience.

    Our 12th visit and everything was awesomely excellent as always. We dine every time we come to Ohau as they are definitely amongst the best on the island. The food is always perfectly prepared and heavenly delicious. The service is professionally meticulous and attentive, and the views are among the best in the Waikiki area. Travel up the 30 stories to your ultimate dining experience. We visit one or more times when come to the area. Often, it's our first and last venue because it's just that good. Never had a bad meal or experience. Relax and enjoy the ambiance, great food, and spectacular views.

    This poor restaurant is severely struggling in what seems to be the aftermath of the pandemic. The waiter we had seemed overwhelmed and unable to focus. We had four in our lunch party and it was brutal. We will never go back.
