This place is SO HOT during the day- they even provide umbrellas for each table for guests to use…and hold the entire time during your dining experience. Talk about irritating. Trying to eat and hold an umbrella…was not the experience I had imagined.
But the food tasted good! Wish the poke nachos had more fish, the oyster shooters were AMAZING and the fries were like they were from MCD. lol

Way too hot and way too loud. They sat us under the speakers of some blaring annoying music at a picnic table that was like 4 feet wide in the hot sun, don’t go, it’s not the ambiance that it once was. Snotty and overpriced. They ruined it.

The food and cocktails were fabulous. Appreciated the validated parking. It was a spur of the moment decision and we were glad to get in. The video on on the Hawaiian airlines flight clued us into this place. I was super happy to have a vegan option that was amazing with flavor. Super cool views of the street and Diamond Head.

Reservations are only available 15 days in advance and booked exactly 15 days in advance. Requested for table with a view and mentioned it was for a birthday. Arrived and the host Emma (we asked our waitress Verisa what the host’s name was and she said that was her name “host had blonde hair”), showed us to our table. I inquired if it had a ocean view and she said partial. Considering it was a birthday I went back up to her at the stand and asked about another table as the one with the ocean view was open. She snapped at said it was first come first serve (which we arrived first and there was no one)? Then I mentioned well I arrived first and there was no one and then she said it was reserved and dismissed me. Our server Verisa was very nice, the food was mediocre at best. The host ruined the birthday vibe. Will never return.

What a great place! Perfect experience, amazing staff, live music, price is right. Make sure to reserve a table at least 1-2weeks in advance or set a reminder when a table become available on the time frame you would like.
We ordered 2 pokes, sushi, sashimi, prosecco and white wine. Everything was absolutely perfect. I asked the waitress to add a decoration to my husbands glass to add his new wedding band (surprise) and was so cute what they provided. We were celebrating 10y anniversary.
The view is perfect and the best time to visit is 1h before sun set.

The food was alright. This is definitely a nice place to strictly go for drinks ONLY, late in the afternoon or at night. Wouldn't recommend going before 6:30 pm during the spring/summer unless you're okay with heat and minimal shade.

The chairs we were seated at were very uncomfortable. They’re definitely not made for eating & drinking. They also give you an umbrella to help you with the sun shining directly on you but it was inconvenient to keep holding on to it while eating. The food was okay. We ordered poke nachos which barely had poke in it. You’re definitely paying for the view. Drinks were good though.

We got there around 4:30pm, so it was really hot and the sun is right on your face. It was uncomfortable to talk and just enjoy the ambiance until 6pm came when the sun gets less harsh. Other than that it was great! Just recommend to get there later on in the day.

Great food, excellent raw bar, fantastic views and friendly wait staff. The only thing to be aware of is that there is zero shad, we had a 5:00pm reservation and the sun was brutal. They actually give you umbrellas to hold…..

The overall experience was good until it was time to pay and they literally moved the goal post on us. See pics provided below. They gave us one menu and when we asked for the check we pointed out the price discrepancies. They said that they gave us the wrong menu and weren't going to honor the menu prices they originally gave us. Absolutely unreal and highly unprofessional.

seriously the worst experience i’ve had dining. everyone at the table got our food 30 minutes apart and disney get to enjoy any of it together while celebrating our anniversary. the minute we walked in the hosts were rude. food wasn’t even good. skybar has a wonderful view but but it’s hard to enjoy the beauty when the food sucks and everything around you is miserable. everyone that worked there looked absolutely miserable which had an effect on the whole restaurant, seriously the worst service. 1/10 for my family and I. i’d highly recommend looking for somewhere else to spend your money.

Where is the Aloha? Why are t

We had a 4pm birthday reservation. We arrived late. Admittedly that was our bad. We lost track of time and did not even realize or we would have called. I understand being late is rude, but they had multiple tables open, so we didn’t understand why they had to make it such a big deal about being 4 minutes past their 15min grace period.

The restaurant wasn’t full. We felt like we were being punished for being late, which made us very uncomfortable. I tried to communicate this but it fell on deaf ears. Apparently communicating their strict policies are more important than making their customers feel welcome.

When we arrived the hostess immediately told us our table had been cancelled, but they would see what they could do to seat us. We were grateful for this, but when they tried to seat us at a table in the back we asked if we move to the front couches. I specifically asked for the one shaded area because the last time we were here we ROASTED in the HOT SUN! Guest comfort is not a priority unless you like holding an umbrella while you dine.

The mgr did give us the table we requested, “As long as we would leave by 6pm.”
Because of the way mgmt approached out tardiness, our daughter felt so uncomfortable she started to cry. This was not the birthday celebration experience we were hoping to have.

Our server was lovely, but I tried to explain again to the MGr the way they handled our late arrival made my daughter very upset. instead of empathy, she kept saying, we have a strict policy, and we are fully booked (even though every table next to us was empty for the entire time we were there) I said again, its my daughters birthday and shes crying…but instead of compassion she told me I don’t understand what you want.

I guess making guests feel welcome isn’t understandable? Too bad. We WERE planning to make this our regular spot and bring all our friends.
