First time to Stage. The service and food was on point. Loved the decor and ambiance. Great for a romantic dinner or a nice dinner with friends. I loved that my husband and I could hear each other and not have raise our voices due to loud noise. It was really relaxing and enjoyed the table seating as we could sit next to each other ...it was nice and cozy. Appreciate Mike the GM and the staff as they were very attentive. Mike even took the time to give us a little tour if we ever wanna bring a large group in. Excited for round two!! Bravo to the chef and staff of Stage Restaurant;) Aloha and Blessings!!

Pros: Our waiter (Local boy) was extremely accommodating. The live piano music was awesome. I wanted my meal a certain way and the chef's were accommodating as well. My favorite part of the entire experience was the furniture and decorations.

I ordered the lobster bisque which is one of my favorites at a few other restaurants but The Stage one was way too salty. We fine dine a lot and see a lot of different variances of food and wine. The wine was way over priced.

We enjoyed our dinner. It was very quiet and we were the only diners in the restaurant until we were on our deserts when a threesome arrived.

The flavors were good and we enjoyed our dinner.

Always a great experience at Stage. Unique pre fixe menu. Great wine pairings. Interesting decor. Only small feedback is the table lighting was a bit too bright for our taste. 100% will be back.

Ambiance was perfect for an evening of celebration. The food was very good. I had the duck which was the most tender it comes. The desserts were all delicious to the eye and palate. The service was excellent. We usually spend 2-3 hours here so it’s not a place if you want a quick bite.

This was our first experience at Stage Restaurant, and it was definitely one to remember! The Ovation Wine Dinner-Pinot Noir was the perfect way for us to enjoy our first time there. We both drink Pinot Noir and the selection was exquisite! We loved that the staff was extremely friendly and that the wine expert was there making rounds and explaining the different pairings to us as it came out - which is probably a difficult task to keep up with. The only thing that prevented me from the 5-star all around, was that the food took a bit longer to come out from the kitchens. Other than that, fantastic night and we will definitely recommend Stage to our friends and family, and we will return!

Food is excellent but service our last 2 visits has been poor, really unacceptable for a fine dining restaurant. My dessert was delivered after the 4 other people in our party had completely finished their desserts and the final bites offered at the end of every meal were also already brought. We asked twice about where my dessert was and the waiter never came to the table to let us know what was going on until the dessert arrived. Had he asked, I would have canceled the dessert because it was late and we were all done with dinner and ready to leave. Also, our gluten free person ordered a souffle by mistake and someone came out and told her it had gluten so would she like ice cream instead. She ordered the ice cream and was served it AND the souffle and billed for both and I was billed for my late dessert.

Food and service were equally excellent! Very attentive and friendly staff. We had a lovely evening celebrating our daughter’s college graduation and getting hired to start her career. Each of us ordered different starters and main dishes and every one was excellent. The pianist contributed nicely to the ambiance. Based on our experience we would highly recommend this restaurant

My husband and I heard about this restaurant from our niece and nephew and looked forward to trying the menu. The Instagram posts didn't do it justice, although the posts are actually really great. (Check it out!) We opted for the tasting menu, one with the "regular" wine list and the other with the top shelf wine list. This way, we could taste ten different wines. The food, amuse bouche, palate cleanser and dessert were in line with the farm to table themes in many of Oahu's top restaurants...but without the attitude. Great food, best service. Try it!
