We always enjoy our meals at the Bistro at the Waikoloa Theater. The food and service are always great, and the outdoor but covered seating is comfortable!

We live in Waikoloa...this is our “go to” place! The food is always great, our regular server is wonderful and we seem to be lucky enough to sit in her area often...so friendly! We definitely take in a movie when the time is right.

We usually order food and eat during the movie, but decided to eat early and then go to the movie and take our dessert in with us. Food was great, server was very attentive. We had a wonderful evening. I highly recommend

Our family enjoyed a wonderful dinner at The Bistro at Waikoloa Luxury Cinemas. We felt very safe dining during the COVID-19 pandemic as all staff and patrons wore masks unless seated for dining. The ambience was perfect, and we couldn’t have asked for a better dining experience. Our waitress was kind and attentive. We enjoyed our usual favorite appetizers, and tried some new main dishes as well. So thankful for a warm, inviting, and comfortable environment. Thank you.

This is our favorite weekly restaurant. The variety of food on the menu has something for everyone. It is perfect for just the two of us or a large family or friends. Friendly staff and happy people. Thank you for being open for us and maintaining good safety protocols to protect us. We will be back.

So happy The Bistro was open. My friend and I claim this restaurant to be one of our favorite places to eat at. We had a super nice food server who is also the bartender. Her name is Angel and she has waited on us many times before.

I highly recommend The Bistro. There is good value in food for your money. The staff are warm and friendly and provide great service. The atmosphere is covered outdoor lanai which I like because of COVID. It can get hot when dining in for lunch. They do have large fans so try to sit near one. Angel is the best!!

Our anniversary dinner was an extra special treat - the Fish & Chips and Thai-Style Tenderloin Steak “Salad” were deliciously-prepared to perfection, and the service was excellent! The special dessert treat for our anniversary was the icing on the cake!

It is wonderful to find a place where one can eat and feel safe in these corona virus days. I felt completely safe at the Bistro. The waitress was excellent, the food was quite good. I found I really like the hard root beer, having never tried it before.

They need to update their menu in Open Table. It shows they have a weekend brunch but they don’t. No one there knew what I was talking about and when I showed them the menu on Open Table they had never seen or heard of a weekend brunch.

Food was delicious! Lamb shank was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Only regret was that I shared it with hubby. Our drinks took too long to arrive because the bar was busy, but were very good when they did arrive.
