Our server Stewart was incredibly charismatic and knowledgeable, such a joy to have met. Lamb rack special was honestly one of the best things I've ever eaten and each menu item we tried just kept getting better. Would 100% come back.

The service was efficient, friendly, but not overbearing. We ordered the special Miso Sea bass which was so delicious with generous pieces of fish! Wish they had that on the menu all the time! Duck was delicious as well, nice and hearty with a kabocha puree that was so delicious, I wanted a second helping! Appetizers were escargot with Ali'I mushrooms and a garlic butter cauliflower puree, pure heaven! The second appetizer was the torched Hamakua Ali'I with goat cheese, another winner with the melt in your mouth smooth goat cheese, yum! This is my second visit there and both times the service and food was excellent. The ambience and decor was also a delight for the eyes. I definitely recommend this restaurant!

Stuart was very personable and knowledgeable. I thought he had worked there for a long time because he was so knowledgeable on the offerings that I was shocked to hear he hasn’t been there very long. He was excellent.

Went for dinner and everything was delicious. Dinner service for us was over 2 hours so don't go if you're in a hurry. It's a place to have an enjoyable dining experience with good food and company.

Amuse bouche (on the house) was a tomato in a creamy sauce and a baked biscuit (not sure how to describe it)...both good. I tried the ahi dynamite and it was fresh and delicious. I ordered a special appetizer...a puff croquette of some sort, I enjoyed it, my dh and dd didn't prefer it.

Intermezzo (on the house) was a lillikoi sorbet.

For entrees I ordered the mahi mahi on furukake risotto. Delicious. Family ordered the beef wellingtons and enjoyed them (I tried it...very tender and good)

For dessert we had the lillikoi creamcicle (delicious --it's big enough to share) and chocolate haupia cake (very good--also shareable)...and since we were there for a dear friend's milestone birthday, they provided a slice of chocolate cake to her (we all tried it...very light and good). They also served chocolate mint truffles. We were stuffed by the time we were done!

This was our 2nd visit to Stage. Reservation was made a month ahead without issue. The restaurant is about 15 minute drive from Waikiki in the Honolulu Design Center and there is ample free parking in the building parking lot. The restaurant feels like a modern art museum and we love the design and decoration. We ordered the Dirty Shirley and Peach Please cocktails recommended by Steward who was our server and they were very very good. We ordered the daily special Persimmon Salad and Caprese and Truffle Fries as appetizers. We ordered the daily specials Mahi Mahi and Lamb Chop and the regular menu New York Strip and Lamb Chop as our main dishes. We ordered the Hochata Sorbet and Lilikoi Creamsicle as desserts. All the food were Exceptional! Steward being able to describe in detail how each dish was prepared and in a lively manner was also Exceptional. Once again, a dinner that Exceeded our expectations. We will definitely return on our next visit to Oahu and highly recommend this restaurant

Had three appetizers, escargot, mushrooms, and ahi. Each one tasted very similar and the mushroom salad was probably only two mushrooms sliced and spread across the plate. Service was great and the ambiance was very nice

Great service - attentive but not intrusive. The food was generally very tasty, but the torched mushroom appetizer left us flat and the sauce for the lamb chops was a bit overpowering. otherwise - worth a visit.

The food and service were excellent. I love all the extras Stage does…complimentary appetizer, sorbet to cleanse your palate and a delicious piece of chocolate at the end. Really appreciated our waiter Brett’s knowledge and suggestions on the menu. He was attentive and timing in bringing our plates was perfect. And absolute best desserts in town!

Celebrations deserve all of the above- Value, Ambience, Service, Food, Experience for it to be rated 5 stars. This is why I frequent Stage Restaurant and chose to dine there on November 17.

I made a reservation for a special occasion- a birthday celebration!

What a way to celebrate…. this 5 star level dining experience was amazing! Without going into too much details, I have never been disappointed so I highly recommend Stage if you want to enjoy a delicious meal, with a nicely decorated ambiance, with excellent service at a reasonable price. The service is top notch and they go above and beyond to ensure your dining experience is enjoyable.

Thank you to the Team at Stage Restaurant, especially Joy, Sous Chef, for making the night so awesome!

We had a wonderful time for my birthday dinner. The ambience was beautiful, the music was soft and nice and the food was extraordinary good.

We had the goat cheese salad, mushroom with balsamic reduction, crispy skin salmon and a delicious lilikoi creamsicle.

Don't forget to order a wine flight and also some sangria!
