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!!!

The food it is first class. We enjoyed the cook it yourself option. They help you every step of the way. As for the location. You can't fault it. Sitting at your table next to Waikiki Beach at sunset is the best. The ambience of the restaurant is unbelievable.

オーダー担当の怠慢さが酷かった。しばらく放っておかれ肉のオーダー方法も伝えられずクレームを言うと、理由がこのレストランはお客さんが多いから、知っていると思っていたとのこと。
何回も謝られたが、肉が焼けても食べる気もせず残した。
結果、1人分を無料にしてきたが気分の悪い食事になった。二度と行かない。

First, this place needs to up the font size on their menu. I got great vision, and it was tough in their poor lighting. Now... The process of getting your food (if you're ordering steak or fish for the grill) is a bit different.. sort of a pick your own meat at a deli counter type thing, but not really, since they actually sorta pick it for you, and then grill it yourself on a community grill, but there's someone there that kinda grills it for you... that guy seemed a bit overwhelmed, helping 6 or 8 different customers grill their food at the same time. Some got frustrated and did it themselves, others like us who waited like we're supposed to according to the grill master, ended up with overly charred food.. salmon skin we couldn't eat and a "medium rare" filet, that was almost well done. We then got back to our table after waiting around the grill for 10-15 minutes for our meat, to waiting a while for our side dishes .. my steak was a little cold by the time those came..

Everything was phenomenal. From the time we were greeted and seated very warmly, right through when we were finished. The view from our table of the sunset was amazing, a waiter passing by saw us taking pictures and offered to get one of the whole family. Our waiter Jason was attentive, personable, and great at giving suggestions! The grill master Junior was amazing and helped us cook everything perfectly! Great food, drinks, and great service- I would highly recommend!

Not only is the Reef Bar & Market Grill right on the ocean, but the warm and friendly service is incredible. We ate here twice for dinner and once for lunch in 5 days and each time had a wonderful experience. Now for the food...it is fresh and delicious. You can order your entree either prepared or unprepared! Yes, that's right. You can get fish, meat or veggies and either grill it yourself or bring it to the fabulous grillmaster Junior who will cook it to perfection. First, you'll give your order ticket to the "butcher" who picks out your selection and then adds a "rub" to it before it gets grilled. Also included with your entree is a fantastic salad bar with 4-5 different kinds of greens and also fresh fruit, cheeses, and vegetables. As I mentioned earlier, the food here is so fresh and deliciously prepared. On our last night in Waikiki, we had the best and warmest server ever, Nile. He was so attentive and professional...we'll request him the next time we return. Oh, and a shout out to Bernie, our server at lunch. She's a great server too and a lot of fun. Wish this place was closer to our home in New York...we'd be frequenting it all the time...Mahalo nui loa to Nile, Junior and Bernie

Disappointed. I used to live on island and loved this place when it was the Shorebird. The fish was always amazing and I never had trouble finding something delicious. Sadly they really only had two fish options and one was Salmon. For God’s sake we are in Hawaii! You can get Salmon anywhere. I used to take all my visiting friends to Shorebirds. I won’t come back. Just mediocre at best and the menu was disappointing.

Only con was they got extremely busy and forgot about us for about 20min.. but every Resteraunt is short handed since economy is strong. Overall...fun, unique place.

ディナーに夫婦で予約していきました。店内は広いので予約しなくても入れそうです。
ちょうどサンセットの時間で景色がとても素敵でした。ただ日没後は海は暗く、店内も照明が抑え目で、少し暗い印象です。日中の方が景色が良く見えるかも。
お料理やサービスは問題なかったです。日本語メニューがあります。お肉を選び、ウェイターさんのメモを頂いたら、肉のショーケースの所に持っていきそこのスタッフに渡します。スパイスの味見をさせてくれるので、その中から決めたものをスタッフがお肉に味付けしてくれます。それを持ってグリルの所に行きます。そこにもスタッフがいるので、肉の種類と焼き加減の希望に合わせて何分焼くようにと言ってくれます。自分でグリルの上にお肉を置きました。スタッフさんが他のグリル台も合わせてみてくれるので焼き具合は問題ないと思います。
BBQの雰囲気を少しですが味わえて楽しかったです。テーブル担当のスタッフさんは気さくで良い印象でした。2人でも大人数でも楽しめると思います。

The setting is absolutely magnificent. The restaurant is beautiful the staff were friendly. The mai tai was very good and I got the Ahi skewers which were amazing! My friend had a steak which was beautifully cooked and nice quality. I was a little disappointed with the stuffed baked potato, the potato tasted like it had been baked several hours before and wasn't hot and Fluffy inside as I would like a potato to be. The salad bar was nice I would have liked a few more vegetable options besides lettuce variety. Overall it was an amazing experience and I would return again.

Ate here twice while staying at the hotel. Really a fun experience. They had an awesome local young artist paying guitar and doing amazing renditions of cover songs on Tuesday during happy hour. Both evenings had excellent service from a server named Reid. This young man will go places. Protein to put on the grill was better quality than I anticipated. No worries if you don’t want to grill it yourslf. The grill masters will take good care of you. The sunst view is the icing on the cake.

ショアバードの後にできたレストランで、サービス形態は変わらないとありましたが、お肉の味付けはシェフが選んでくれます。
ただ、自分で焼くことも出来ますが、基本はシェフが焼く事になってるようで、シェフ料金が加算され、少し値段が高くなってしまってます。
なので、コスパは評価を少し下げました。
味はリブアイをチョイスしましたが、美味しかったです。
事前にリクエストしたので、席はいい席用意いただけました。

ます、席についてもテーブル担当がちっとも来ない。あまり来ないので、店の人に声をかけたらしばらくして来た。その時に、システムの説明もなく、オーダーはしたが、待ってていいのか、肉を取りに行くのかわからなかった。聞こうとしてもテーブル担当が近くに来ないので聞けない。仕方ないのでまた店の人に声をかけたらしばらくして来た。バドワイザーを頼んだが、私が席を外している間に置いて行ったので、グラスをもらいたいと言いたかったが、また近くにいないので別の人に頼んだ。あと、肉に合ったシーズニングを選んでくれて、その代金をシェフに15ドル払うとメニューに書いてあったが、客が4種の中から選んでいるから金を取るのはおかしい。最後にチェックの時もテーブル担当が近くにいないので、また他の店員にチェックと言ったらしばらくして担当が来た。チップは1ドルも払いたくなかったが、マナーに反するのではらいました。最終日の夜だったので、楽しみにしていましたが、非常に不快な思いで帰国しました。もう行きません。
