The beef tartare and the foie gras gyoza were outstanding, both imaginative and successful variations on the standard presentations. The scallop risotto was also excellent, but not what the name implies: two perfectly seared scallops topped a richly flavored broth containing the mushrooms and risotto-style rice, but there was far more broth than in a standard risotto. So again a well-executed twist on the usual. Good selection of wines by the glass. Service from Genya and others was friendly and very attentive: as in the best-run restaurants, service was decidedly collaborative. Highly recommended for those who like trying new "takes" on the familiar.

The food was good but the whole experience was ruined because we told our server that there was a nut allergy in party and when dessert came he didn't warn us that there was walnuts in all the dessert. Our two kids got a severe reaction. The ribeye portion is small and not cooked to order. We asked for medium rare and the center was still cold.

Food was ok, but not worth it as those prices. The cream puffs came out of a bag, the rice pilaf tasted chemically, I got one lonely carrot in the entre dish. The service was great, ambiance is great, the wine pairing was spot-on. Just not the food

Amazing food and impeccable service. I wouldn’t call this a French restaurant as indicated on open table. It is an eclectic mix of flavors from various parts of the world along with some Indian flavors in some dishes. The results are quite delicious. The restaurant is also significantly more laid back than some busy spots on Waikiki and the vibe is really pleasant at the Lotus. The mango kulfi dessert is very impressive.

Ambiance ok. Felt like a cafe setting.

4 of us had the chicken curry which they all enjoyed.
I had the pork chop which could use a bit more flavor. Was a good cut of pork notably.
Potsticker appetizers were ok.

Probably will not return

By far the best service we have experienced in Hawaii ever. The menu is thoughtful and minimal with many experiences to genuinely taste the subtlety and flavor in the dishes. The modern take on local food was fun and exciting. The wine menu is amazing with affordable choices for absolutely delicious wine.

I hate saying it because I usually applaud chef driven cuisine, however we were not impressed. The flavors fell short, yet the pricing is luxury. I don't mind spending on fine dining, but I want my palate to be wowed. The server also clearly forgot to put in our order which made the wait time long. He made it up with a drink on the house, but he felt cold the whole time. Maybe he just had a bad day, I don't know.

TBD is an calm oasis amid the frenetic hustle and bustle of Waikiki. It’s an elegant, stylish setting in a quiet area of town a 5 minute cab ride away from center of hotel row. Here you can slow down and enjoy a delightful meal and a great conversation with your dining companions. The $75 menu is the “best deal in town” and definitely with it. We all enjoyed every item. Plenty of great options for gluten free folks.

Took a friend out for her birthday. We had the tasting menus : ahi tartare, baked shrimps, soup & Caesar salad, scallop risotto & lamb shank. Everything was done just right, except my soup came out somewhat cold. The wine pairing was great too, esp the sherry & port with the desserts.

We enjoyed the evening!

We will happily return. The food was good, wine pairings were thoughtful and well-matched to the food, service was friendly and attentive but unobtrusive, and the decor/atmosphere is very open and relaxing. The menu is brief but with enough options for different tastes/moods, every dish we had was flavorful, well-seasoned and well-executed. Made for a very pleasant evening out. The 4-course tasting menu was a particularly good value. Only reason 4 stars and not 5 is that nothing on the menu stood out -- however every single element of the meal was very well-executed. TBD is clearly run with a high level of culinary knowledge and hospitality industry professionalism.

My daughter didn’t eat much of her meal so we had it packed to go but they never brought it back to us and we forgot and left without it.

The food is not very French. Trying too hard to be fancy. TBD is a good name because it’s trying to decide what is going to be when it grows up. Food was mediocre and had weird non French flavors. The French accented waiter was rude.

We ordered the four course menu.
1. Escargot shrimp (very good) and tuna tartare (good missing a wow element)
2. Onion soup (ok flavor was room temperature)
3. Curry de jour (the clear winner) and lamb tajine (barely touched, meat was tough and overall not a fan)
4. Mango dessert and the banana puffs with caramel. Puffs were good and the better of the two.

Appreciate the service, ambiance, and drinks. Would possibly return and order other items. For Oahu like the concept. Overall just hoping for higher quality of food.
