Had lunch here before and it was great! Dinner however was extremely overpriced for what it is. My ahi was not good (I didn’t even finish it) and the waiter was extremely polite but he never came back to our table really at all once our order was placed. I was going to order another drink but never got the chance. Many empty tables so I’m not sure what the deal was. Very disappointed.

Slow service on arrival, no hostess for a few minutes and patrons lined up. Slow waiter service after arrival at table. Had buffet which lacked replenishment of bacon and pineapple at times. Not what the Shorebird used to offer at much less cost, which also included and turkey and ham carving station. Great location by the beach but not what it used to be like in better times under the Shorebird name.

料理はすごく美味しかったです!
ただサンセット直前に肉料理がきて、ここでは注文票をお肉のカウンターに持って行ってから、グリルで焼くんですが、サンセットいいところ見れないかと思うくらいギリギリまでかかってしまって…
言えば焼いて持ってきてくれるのかもしれないけど英語力ないのでそこまではできなかったです!
まぁ結局サンセット観れたんで最高だったんですけど。
直前の予約にも関わらず、すごくいい席に通してもらってすごく嬉しかったです。
とてもいい思い出になりました!

Great views of ocean and Diamond Head. Can be noisy but upbeat atmosphere. Steak and veggies were high quality and well cooked. My daughter had the spare ribs and they were delicious - the best she has ever had.

The food was terrible I had these Ahi ke and it tasted like frozen robber I would never eat there again the price was outrageous the only positive thing was the view and that was awesome I wish it was the old place and that was much better I specially like the 395 my ties now that 12 bucks and they’re horrible I would not recommend this. For sure Bird was the one I like

以前のショアバードとほぼ一緒です。
以下ショアバードと比較になります。
ステーキはザ・アメリカンなボリュームで女性では食べきれないと思います。
サラダバーはショアバードの方が良かったと思います。
ショアバードの時にあったハッピーアワーがないのが残念ですね。
料金もショアバードより高いです。
ロケーションは相変わらず良いです。
子供には子供メニュー兼ぬり絵を渡されるので子供連れにもオススメレストランです。

セルフバーベキューは、常時、シェフが一人ついていて、好みの焼き方で焼き上げてくれて大変良かった。ショアバードの時もついていたが、今回は大変フレンドリーなシェフで、子供も楽しく簡易BBQを楽しめたようです。
しかし、サラダバーは品数が昨年より減り、補充も十分ではなかったのが残念です。
でも総合的には安価で満足できる良いお店だと思いますので、次回も楽しみにしています。

元旦のディナーで利用しました。辛口の口コミもあったので、心配していましたが、思ったよりいい店でした。海のそばなので、夜になると景色は殆ど見えませんが、海岸がライトアップされているので、雰囲気はありました。シーフードタワーとリブアイをいただきました。サラダバーがついているので、それで結構お腹が膨れます。シーフードタワーはボリュームたっぷり。まずまず満足の夜でした。

NYE dinner at The Reef Bar and Market Grill would be the most underwhelming dining experience I have ever had. Booked online from Australia to ensure we could get in for NYE. On arrival in Honolulu went to the restaurant to confirm that booking all ok. Also requested if we could have a table by the windows. Was told that the restaurant was fully booked and could not guarantee anything. On arrival for our 8.45p.m. booking we were greeted at the restaurant entrance with "Would you like a table for 2?" Thought the place was booked out and it was definitely not. Quite empty in fact. We advised we had a booking and were taken to our table. Asked if we could be moved to a window table - again told going to be very busy - sorry. What a load of rubbish. Waiter was Nick who did what waiters do. He brought us a glass of champagne each to which we advised that neither of us drank alcohol and he asked what we would like instead. Ordered orange juice and ginger beer, to only find out we were charged for them. You've got to be kidding me. Next big disappointment was the "decadent" salad bar. Oh dear! What a sad looking set up it was. Nothing decadent about it and a lot of the bowls of salad were spilled on the bench. There are so many beautiful and tasty salad ideas that both of us were lost of words with the advertised "decadent" salad bar. Main meal was OK. I had the beef and my daughter had the vegetarian meal. Next comes dessert - or what was advertised as dessert. Again a sad offering. Finally, bill time. Nick brings the account and it was over $US200.00 which equated to over $AUS300.00 and the account had suggested gratuity ideas. The first one was 18% which amounted to nearly $US40.00 which would be over $AUS60.00. I don't think so. Needless to say there was no tipping as we were both very disappointed with the whole dining experience. Also, there was no NYE decor in the restaurant. BIG missed opportunity by those in the marketing department.

This was the one of the best restaurants we have ever been too!!

We were a family of 5 with a baby they gave us a window table but only after I had to ask a manager for it; if you make a reservation she was very polite

The food was amazing! My teen son got to grill his own steak with a chef’s supervision & he loved it! No kids meals unfortunately so my little girl has the adult side portion of the mac & choose which she loved! It’s also free salad bar!

such a great experience: I highly recommend this place; I would of given it 5/5 stars but I feel the food prices were a little to high generally.

The cook your own entree venue (we’ve been here countless times as “the shorebird” and now twice as “the reef” is still a great spot for sunset dinner views on the beach, good live music and a fun evening with dinner. Jacob our server did a great job with the menu and service timing, Jacob at the butcher table provided quick service and good seasoning recommendations, Emiliano at the grill was an all-star navigating from party to party and keeping everyone’s meals on-track. We opted for more sides than we have ever gotten before and they were all great. The salad bar was adequate but not a great selection or range of offer. We will come back again.

We went for dinner on Christmas. Not a good value. $80 per adult for salad bar and selection of entree and dessert. Portions on entree were very small and frankly the food was just not very good. Felt like we were fleeced. Staff were understanding and service was good.

We ate dinner here on Christmas evening Dec. 25. It was a set dinner for &79.00 with 3 options ,but a Christmas turkey dinner was not one of the dinner options. Ambiance is quite good, since this establishment is an oceanfront location. In saying that, the quality of the food does not match the ambiance with it's ocean side location. The King Crab legs, (one of the dinner options) were a bit tough and tasteless. The greens in the salad bar however, were fresh and tasty. Top marks for the salad bar! The dessert options were overly sweet and we could not finish them. Overall, the meal was just OK. I simply would not come running back for another meal at the prices we paid

Definitely one of the nicest views we've experienced! Very good vibe in the open air atmosphere while still being inside. Service was excellent! We both had prime rib and the quality was excellent! The salad bar that came with the meal was nothing special but adequate. The price was as expected for a holiday meal in a nice resort hotel.

This used to be one of our favorite places to have dinner at. We started the fish tacos. They were very good, just small. Then we had the burger. The meat was very thin in size, and over cooked. The meal comes with trip to the salad bar. This restaurant used to have the most amazing salad bar. Now under a new ownership, the salad bar was very disappointing. It does not have as many choices as it used too.
I'd go back, but not for dinner.

We had nick as a server and used the pre fix menu options for thanksgiving and was beyond impressed. While walking in we were greeted by smiling faces and beautiful ocean views and we got probably the best table of the house. I felt like I was in a fairytale. The salad buffet was delicious and had so many options !! I loved the bread rolls especially the taro rolls. The steak and opah was mouth watering delicious and I am already dreaming of going back. Highly recommend for any meal!!!
