I was excited going to this restaurant as so many pictures show appetizing dishes, but the selection and the quality of the food was a big disappointment. Pictures posted years ago must have been created by a different chef under prior management. While the decor is great , the couple seats are turned out towards the street and feels isolated. The food is just average at best - my pork chop was chewy and sprouts was way too salty. The palette cleanser ice cream was really sweet. Dessert was good, and huge - like 2 portions on one plate. Kinda bummer.

When one of our guests arrived to the elevator at Inspiration, two other patrons (a couple) were waiting to go to Stage. When the elevator opened up, my guest asked if it was okay for him to ride with the couple. The gentleman asked "Are you vaccinated?" My guest replied "Yes, I am". The gentleman then said that he had to get out of the elevator because he didn't want vaccinated people to ride with him. Really??? Stage didn't have control over this absurdity initially, but when told about it, they did nothing.

Incredible value & fantastic non-standard wines!! Was initially disappointed that Thursday was only fixed-price tasting menu, but that turned into a blessing. What I received for the price would need 6 or 7 stars for value. Six 3-oz. pours of wine & ample tapas-style food servings. The pairings were excellently matched, and to my enormous pleasure not a chardonnay, sauvignon blanc or pinot grigio in sight. Rather, 3 Corsican, 1 Sardinian, & 1 Greek plus other excellent & interesting selections. A great intro to what Stage offers. Trevor's service was friendly, attentive, & knowledgeable. Very pleasant ambience. If you like me seek wine beyond the standard boring fare of most even high-end restaurants, highly recommended! Do note entry is through the garage. call for guidance if you're on foot like me.

We were fortunate to have Trevor taking care of us. He was wonderful and since our seats were low, even squated down to speak with us so we could hear through his mask. The food was wonderful, and the only disappointment was that they were all out of the ahi dynamite, which is my absolute favorite. The salmon tataki was actually ok, but not as good as the ahi tataki. Dessert was great, and the overall experience was so nice.

The service was impeccable! Food was amazing! My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and they made us feel like we knew them forever! We don’t usually fine dine but let me tell you, this was an amazing experience! Definitely worth the value. My wife and I both got the Ribeye and it was absolute perfection! Definitely a must if you stay in O’ahu!

Went to Stage to celebrate an anniversary, we were seated in the cute loveseats quickly. Stage gave complimentary bread, sorbet palate cleanser, and chocolate bites. Everything we ate was delicious, service was fast and friendly, overall a great experience.

Excellent service, wine selection, and delicious food. Food is on the pricier side for small appetizers, but it is delicious and we enjoyed every bite. At this time, due to COVID, the self-serve wine taps aren't available, but they do have a good list of wines and some wine flight options for those that want wine tasting. On a Thursday evening, it wasn't busy, and they had live music which was very nice.

Stage Restaurant has the -best- variety of wines outside of Waikiki. Possibly even including Waikiki. If you're a wine person, you'll love the endless choices. The ambiance of this restaurant is amazing. It is like having dinner in an art gallery. Very eclectic pieces of art placed throughout the restaurant make for a fun time identifying and discussing the items. And the food--- while the entree selection was a bit small (only five to choose from), the quality and selection of ingredients is first class. Amazing quality from the fish to the pork chop to the steak; you cannot beat the high quality products. The appetizer menu is quite diverse and again designed from quality ingredients with flavors that just pop. The mentaiko mayo topped toasted bread sticks are the best; such an amazing creation. Toasty, warm, soft, get crunchy crust with creamy mentaiko flavor--wow. Would definitely go back to Stage, highly recommended.

We hadn’t been to stage since before the pandemic, but decided to come for our one year wedding anniversary. Even with the smaller menu, everything was superb. From the waitress to the food to the ambiance to the wine - it was all perfection, and worth every penny. Thank you Stage for always giving us the most romantic dining experience. Customer for life.

This was not my first time at stage...and it will not be my last. I absolutely love this establishment. The food is reasonably priced, made with passion and artistic style, and tastes amazing. Their wine list and cocktail menu have something for everyone- I do wish they had a mocktail section for us nonn-imbibers, but that's not a big deal. Every time I have come to stage the wait staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional which adds to the great experience. The restaurant's atmosphere is awesome, whimsical, and picture worthy. And now for the REAL reason I come to stage- THE DESSERT BY CHEF CAINAN!!! last night we ordered 3 desserts and ended up getting a 4th for our anniversary. It was my boyfriends first time at Stage and he was absolutely blown away by all the desserts flavors, textures, and presentations. All I can say is ORDER THE COFFEE PIE AND MAYBE AN EXTRA ONE. Stage is my favorite place to eat when I am in town and I always tell new visitors to go off the beaten path of Waikiki and take themselves to Stage.

We have a list of restaurants that we want to try before moving back to the mainland - Stage was on our list. It did not disappoint! We were seated promptly, brought waters, and a complimentary small tasty appetizer. We ordered an appetizer, two entrees, two desserts, and a handful of drinks (cocktails, wine, and coffee). All the food was VERY GOOD. It was well above average, flavorful, and filling. Th
