We have eaten here before and had a great dinner experience. This time our calamari was good but cold . Your staff did comp it. When I made reservations you had ask if it was a special occasion. I put it was our anniversary. Why do you ask if you don’t have your staff do anything or say anything. Our reservation where for 7 snd we didn’t get out till 9. It just was a disappointing dinner experience.

From greeting us, seating, to coffee and dessert it was an incredible dining experience. The smallest thing that would have made it perfect was if we hadn’t had to ask a young server who brought a salad to share to provide a serving implement. But overall service was excellent and the meal was ideal. Thank you for a most enjoyable dining experience.

Overall, it was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience. The table we got was excellent and our server was helpful, friendly and did a great job. The only part of the experience for me was my dish selection. I asked the server if the cream sauce was thick or thin on the carbonara and she said it was kind of thick, which is bad for me as I have difficulty with rich foods, but I ordered anyway. It was way too creamy for my personal taste and I was only able to eat about half of it. The bacon they used was fantastic, however. My other tiny dissatisfaction was the portion size on the dessert. We got the carrot cake, which was easily the best carrot cake we have ever had, ever. But I think it should have been about 10-15% bigger. Overall, we look forward to returning as soon as our schedule allows.

Slow service (seemed they were short handed), items on menu not available, steaks cooked perfectly, side dishes and desserts delicious, parts of order did not come out with food. If you're not in a hurry (we were not) a nice experience.

Very satisfied with the food and drink choices! Tri-tip with mashed potatoes and asparagus was delicious! Lydia the waitress was fantastic. Only disappointing thing was the seating- it felt cafeteria like. Lacks ambiance, but staff and food are great!

We wanted to go to Michael Jordan’s steakhouse for some good steaks but they were closed, so we settled on Rose&Thorn. So glad we did!! The tri tip steak was grilled to perfection and perfectly done (medium well) and so juicy and tender, and that Demi-glaze... it was really hard to not pick up that plate and lick it right off of it!! My husband got the New York strip and he loved it. We shared the meat and cheese plate and the creme brûlée, both also delicious choices. Overall, I would say that I think when I want steak at Ilani, I’m gonna save $75 and go to Rose & Thorn.

Food was yummy but I will say the halibut is very small for that price. Also ordered the vegetable risotto which says on the menu comes with pancetta but it's actually bacon. I would eat here again, they just need to refine the menu.

Gabby is a fantastic server and she looked absolutely beautiful. Food was very good overall. Sweet n sour would be good on the salmon instead with the parmesan crust on the brussels sprouts. Torta cake was too sugary/chocolatey. Slice up the mushrooms more on the wild mushroom pizza.

It was my husband’s 50th birthday and I’d informed the restaurant of this beforehand but no special service or well wishes were given, which was unfortunate.

Ordered lamb which came before any other dish my guests ordered. It sat and waited for my two sides and the rest of our order to arrive. By that time the lamb was cold and stringy and the sides came to the table cold. The manager did offer to replace. I refused due to another long wait and my guests would of finished there meals by that time. I ordered a cocktail and was told the bartender was on break, so I never received that. Will not return, obviously.

Our waiter Jerome was exceptional and friendly. The food was delicious. We were seated on the inside section from the windows and would have enjoyed being by the windows. There wasn't a lot of ambience where we were seated.

first time here and the food was great and service was great but honestly we were put in the very back and the space felt very lazy. music did not match the vibe at all (ed sheeran🤢) and the back room could definitely use some sprucing up.
