Everyone here at Stage was very professional and had great attitude! It made the dining experience even better because food was great. Menu is a little limited but understandable due to the circumstances. I would definitely come back.

I setup a surprise Proposal Dinner for myself and my new Finacee. Stage once again provided us with an amazing experience! The food was purely exceptional. The added glasses of congratulations champagne along with the congratulations desert was totally not expected but is pure stage fashion, exceeded expectations!

Our waitress was on point never to fail in service, kindness and was a pure delight to have help us throughout the night.

Hats off to Stage, Chef and Staff that provided us an experience to end off our special day with a bang!!!! We will be back soon and can’t wait for it to happen!

Thank you so so very much!

Reserved Stage to celebrate a birthday for my friend. This was an amazing night that lasted about 3 hours. Never felt rushed at all, and the meal presentation for all dishes were beautiful and top notch. Amazing ambience with the best service.

I want to come back for my birthday to Stage.... you have become one of my favorite restaurants.

The reason why I booked Stage was my experience during Restaurant Week in 2019. I’m glad you’re back open for business since the pandemic started, and service levels, food, and ambience never changed one bit!

Mahalo nui loa for an excellent 5-star experience!

My wife and I picked this restaurant purely on customer reviews as we never heard of this restaurant before. We were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is a hidden gem, very nice decor and social distancing was observed from the hostess greeting, seating, and throughout dinner service. For starters we had the beat salad and for entreesthe NY steak and seared Ahi, everything was delicious! We also enjoyed some of their specialty cocktails. The presentation of their food and drinks were top notch, the only thing better was how everything tasted. We highly recommend this restaurant, better than most in this price range.

We dined on Tasting Thursday when the three course set menu was vegetarian. The dishes were very flavorful, even the simple Caesar Salad and Gnocchi, with delightful amuse bouche and palate cleanser offerings. The wine pairing selections were also very satisfying.
It was quite empty, two or three other parties, possibly due to residual public fears. Service was friendly and attentive.
The regular menu was limited as usual as per the style of this restaurant. The Colorado lamb chops were a bit on the tough side but delicious.
I look forward to dining here again soon.

This is our 'go to' restaurant. Our favorite restaurant did not fail to wow us in their creativity and taste. Loved the escargot, red miso dressing on garden salad, dijon mustard lamb chop and beef wellington were delish!

We went to Stage for my birthday and had a terrific experience. The service was attentive and did a good job of accommodating restrictions brought on by COVID-19. I loved the funky decor, but the view isn't much to speak of. The food was very good throughout - some dishes were excellent, others were only good, but nothing less than good. They also feature an extensive list of wines by the glass and were gracious in replacing a wine we didn't like. All in all a very enjoyable experience.

I wish at reservation time they notify you that their regular menu has been modified to only a very few options. This was very disappointing to my husband whose birthday it was. He was very very sad about this as this is his all time favorite restaurant, so he was looking forward to all the amazing varieties of food they normally have on their menu.
Their ice cream quality had also gone way down, very icy and not creamy anymore.
I on the other hand was very pleased and impressed by the Vegan options they prepared for me. I couldnt stop raving about it to all my vegan friends and coworker the next day. The misoyaki Tofu was to die for and so was the Cauliflower steak. They also had a super on point vegan avocado toast appetizer. Fingers crossed they create an equally mind blowing VEGAN dessert soon!!

We are happy that Stage reopened for dinner. The staff took all of the necessary precautions to make patrons dine safely.

The menu is a bit more limited with the reopening, but our party enjoyed the delicious meal from salads to desserts.

The staff continues to deliver outstanding service and Stage will continue to be one of our favorite restaurants.

This was our first date night since everything shut down.
It was so nice to get out and have good laughs over great food.
Stage did a great job with social distancing guest. The staff keep their masks on while at our table we could take ours off to enjoy our meal.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday with our 2 yr old son. They seated us right away and made us feel very comfortable. I was initially nervous bringing along a toddler to such a nice place but they provided us with a high chair and offered a coloring activity sheet with crayons. They also have a children’s menu which I was not aware of before hand. Our server was very friendly and she took our orders promptly without rushing us. Other people were all seated plenty of space apart and all the staff wore masks (covid-19 precautions). The interior is remarkable and the cocktails and food was delicious! Even our son’s simple cheese pizza had so much flavor. Husband ordered their special New York steak with a side of bone marrow and I had the roasted duck breast with a side of purée butternut squash. It was beautifully presented, cooked perfectly and each bite was magical. We also ordered the salmon tataki for appetizer and a strawberry rhubarb for dessert. Chef surprised us a slice of complimentary birthday cake for my husband and some chocolate bites which we ended up taking home because we were stuffed. They also presented us with some delicious amuse-bouche prior to our appetizer and this mysterious palate cleanser (they called it an immune booster due to all the healthy ingredients) it prior to our meal. We really enjoyed our time here and we plan on coming back again before we leave Hawaii.

This restaurant deserves 6 stars. Hats off to the Chef! Our party of 8 ordered 9 appetizers, 7 desserts, drinks, and 7 entrees. We consumed every last bit with great satisfaction. The food presentation was very appealing to the eyes. In addition to the divine taste of the food, the service and atmosphere/ambience were excellent. My friends thanked me repeatedly for introducing them to Stage. Will be back soon!

We celebrated our anniversary and had a wonderful time! Stage seated us at a beautiful sweetheart table facing the window and gave us 2 complimentary glasses of bubbly. The servers were very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was so delicious that we’re still dreaming about it and wondering when we will be back again! Thank you for a perfect evening!

We came a day after Valentine's Day and it was a beautiful experience. Not only were the decorations beautiful, the dishes were outstanding. The service was amazing as well! We definitely want to come back next year. From what we hear, it's better to have your Valentine's dinner the day before or after Valentine's Day so it's less crazy. They will still offer their Vday menu on the 13th and 15th.

Although menu is not large, it is adequate. Presentation & flavoring very good.
Service also very good. The only complaint is the restaurant was so cold & I could feel the blowers on my face. I asked the server if there were any other tables available, he said he would check but did not get back to us with a reply so we assumed no. Thankfully the soups we ordered came hot hot hot! Aaaah

We were not told that there was a tasting menu for the night we made our reservation. Dinner took almost 3 hours, about 30 minutes between each course. All the seafood served was overcooked to the point of not being able to eat the dishes. When we didn't eat one of our dishes and the manager asked what was wrong I mentioned it was very overcooked, she told me she would take care of my drinks - 1 sparkling water, almost more of a slap in the face than anything to remedy the disaster of an evening. Honestly, one of the worst dining experiences of my life.
