Our ohana had a vision to share our love for ono food, live music and hospitality with the world. In 2019, this dream became a reality when we opened Moani Island Bistro and Bar on the west side of O’ahu. With the overwhelming support from our customers, Moani’s success has exceeded our expectations. Our family is thriving, our vision is growing, and Moani is expanding. Come and be a part of the family, enjoy our genuine aloha, heart-filled cooking and island music. Join us at our second location, in the heart of Waikiki!
With love,

    After making reservations for 7:30 pm we arrived for dinner @ 7:20. I went to the ladies room thinking that my friend would be seated during that time. Not only was she not seated but a couple who just walked in was allowed to choose any table they wanted (ahead of us and they sat at the high top we wanted). There was no concern over this by the hostess and we ended up sitting at another standard table just to keep the peace. What good is a reservation if you really don't need one? Other than that, our waitress was friendly and very attentive. The food was good and the drinks were better! We loved the entertainer, Justin Black!

    Waikiki expensive. OK Hawaiian food. Good waitress. Very loud guitarist who management should have dialed back. It seemed like he made the decision about the sound, not restaurant management.

    2nd time was a charm except for an item we did not order appearing on our bill. Our server did rectify it quickly. We also had to ask for our (separate) side dish order twice since it wasn't being brought to our table in a timely manner.

    The service was amazing and drinks really good! The food was a little disappointing. There was just too much sauce on everything. My friend and I couldn’t finish the food. The fries were great though. I’ve dined here before and haven’t had any problems with the food so I’ll still be dining every once in while. I love eating here

    Our last dinner at Hawaii turned out to be the best! Food was great, we ordered the garlic shrimp with lava sauce, and fried while fish. Food was tasty and service was very attentive. We also seated outside for the live music. The vibe was awesome for our family. Thanks for the good memory!

    Our first time Never knew the lanai top floor was so big! With so many options! Love that they have local musicians every nite! Food was Ono too! Service great - although sometimes couldn’t tell if they were servers - no big, local n cashual, easy AND it turns into a nightclub?! Whaaaat! Couldn’t stay, but gonna have to come back with the girls! Parking at international is easy too - checked all the boxes. Haven’t wanted to go to a Waikīkī nightspot in a long time, didn’t have any for a while either. Have dinner n stay for the late nite fun

    Been in Hawaii two weeks. This was the best meal by far. I had the beer can chicken. My wife had the Butterfiah. Both absolutely delicious. Our server was great until the restaurant got busy. She became overwhelmed and forgot about us. Fortunately, the other staff noticed and they pitched in wonderfully

    The entire experience was very good. Hostess and servers very warm and welcoming. The butterfish entree is outstanding and among the best we’ve had in terms of taste, presentation, portion and creativity. Prawn appetizer was a terrific start to the meal. Drinks were on point.

    Excellent quality food, friendly service. Not cheap, but for Hawaii not outrageous, either. Not crowded, so easy to get a table at the same time that some other well-known restaurants were full. Ambience in the restaurant itself is nothing special, but it is in an interesting shopping center that is nice to walk around in.

    Food is not worth the price. We were eating outside and there’s water dripping from the ceiling and the server didn’t even bother to change our seats after letting them know that we are getting wet.
