The food was excellent. The prime rib eye was big, tender, and high quality. The baked potato was wonderful and the side garnishments included large pieces of bacon, chives, and a generous amount of sour cream. The rustic truffle mashed potatoes was my favorite side dish! It was rich, creamy and perfect! Aaron was an awesome waiter. He was helpful and made it a great experience for us. Beautiful views, nice ambiance, excellent food, and a fantastic experience. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Server was great and helpful, but long periods of time in between stops at table. Restaurant seemed short staffed for the large crowd that was coming through restaurant. Restaurant was packed & not observing social distancing between tables. Many people not wearing masks upon entry although it’s still required. Many of the food items had run out by 7:30. Wagyu prime was outstanding, other dishes were so so. Salads were overdressed.

Wonderful experience! We are staying in the Ala Moana hotel and ate here last night as well. With all the restaurants in Waikiki, we decided to come back to Signature. The Wagu rib eye special was incredibly tender and succulent. The accompanying mashed potatoes were perfectly seasoned. Our server was Para and she provided exceptional service and knowledge with our wine and menu selections. Peter was our server last night and he provided 5+++ service and wine knowledge. This is our new fav restaurant when in Honolulu.

My family and I went for dinner. It was for my daughter's birthday. The staff was great and took care of us well! We had a nice view. The food was very good. We had the oysters and arugula salad to start. My daughter & husband usually do not like arugula but really liked their arugula salad. My son and daughter tried oysters for the first time. They loved it! We ordered two kinds of steak and a fish dish. Delicious! The truffle mashed potatoes was a hit with everyone. My daughter got a birthday dessert, too. That was so nice of the restaurant. Lilikoi creme brûlée and the apple pie. Soooo good! Excellent dinner! We all had a wonderful time.

Our world food tour at the top of the Ala Moana Hotel ... The Signature restaurant was jumping and appeared to be packed to capacity. I saw little in the way of social distancing except for plexiglass panels between booths; table spacing seemed normal.

We started with two cocktails, both using Empress 1908 gin (which happens to be my favorite gin). A Diana for my tablemate and a regular gin & tonic for me. The egg white was a little off-putting so perhaps not the most successful concoction. We ordered a bottle of Justin Isosceles, vintage 2017, to accompany our meal.

The appetizers were the beef tartare and what was called goat cheese tartine. The tartare was okay; it needed the moisture or richness of an egg. A tartine is a piece of toast with the toppings applied; what we received was a round of goat cheese, cranberries and five slices of toast. One demerit for misnaming or laziness.

We ordered the 16oz Ribeye and the 16ox NY Strip medium rare; a side of truffled mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. The steaks were perfectly cooked; tender and flavorful. No complaints whatsoever on the steaks or the sides. There was so much food we took home a large bag containing several more meals.

I can’t reiterate how crowded it was … there was a line to enter the men’s bathroom! I rated it four stars, mainly because the appetizers were disappointing. We’ve had much better tartare at a number of restaurants around town and a round of cheese and toast is not an appetizer worthy of a fine dining establishment. Maybe I’m too picky; everyone else seemed to be enjoying their Signature experience. Go for the steaks!

Noise level was too loud, background music should be lowered so people do not need to shout over to others on table!

Had reservations on our wedding night, we got there early and enjoyed some awesome drinks at the bar, which they sat us right away. We went to our table and had a great view and great service. The NY Strip was the best steak I’ve ever had, couldn’t be cooked any better. Everything was great. It was well worth the price and we very much appreciated the service, they made us feel special on our big day. We would love to come back. Thank you.

My husband and I just got married yesterday on 07/12. I initially placed the reservation through Open Table for 9pm. I ended up calling to see when would be the best time to make the reservation to hear the pianist play. The host told me to make it for 8pm instead. So I changed it. I also wanted us to sit at the piano for dinner but the waitress said that it wasn’t guaranteed. (I had my fingers crossed.) Once we arrived to the restaurant on the top floor, we were greeted by 3 hosts. We arrived about 15-20 minutes early. I asked them about sitting at the piano and they said they would check and see because it was closed off at the time. Due to our special occasion, they allowed it. I was the happiest bride because of that. My day was already perfect and they topped it off. The pianist, Keith was so nice and also played 2 of our wedding songs. The waiter, Jordan was spectacular. He recommended us certain dishes that were amazing. He also gave us a complementary dessert and side dish since it was our wedding day. The manager even came over to congratulate us and spoke to us for a while about Hawaii and more. Very nice gentleman! From the ambiance, the view, the pianist, the service and THE FOOD!!! Let’s not get started on the rib-eye and filet mignon, truffle mashed potatoes, lobster Mac and cheese, soups, calamari, drinks and desserts. I was off of my diet that night for sure. Lol I don’t write many reviews. But when I do, it’s because they really went above and beyond. Even the guests were so welcoming and celebrating us as well. I had an amazing time. I would definitely come back again. Highly recommended. Thank you, The Signature Steak & Seafood!!!!

Omg our waiter was the cutest thing! Noah! He made my birthday dinner extra special by being just a wonderful conversationalist! There was another young man who worked there and we chatted about whiskeys. The people who worked there were very very friendly and everyone was so accommodating. I really enjoyed my birthday dinner. It was amazing! Thank you so much!! I will recommend to anyone who visits Honolulu. The view from the dining area was phenomenal! Just another great reason to go there. Super romantic (unfortunately I was just with my sister lol). Loved everything about the place. Oh and their lobster bisque is FIRE!!!!!

Waiter wasn’t very good we were ignored most of the night. All the times I’ve been to this restaurant I’ve never had to ask for water. My wife had an empty glass for almost more than half the time we were there. Also I ordered my usual tomahawk wagyu and it was literally almost half the normal size. Not happy at all probably time to try a different steak house I’m very disappointed.

Overall, we had a good time. Our server, Chris, was awesome! And all the staff was very friendly and attentive. They play music through the speakers throughout the restaurant, and it was a bit loud for our preference. The food was good, but very expensive so definitely would save this place for special occasions.

Great place for a special occasion, out waiter and assistant waiter were sure we had topped off drinks, fresh plates, and anything we needed. The views of Waikiki from the 36th floor are awesome and all tables have a view. We celebrated my friend's 40th birthday and she got a complimentary side and dessert, complete with the "Happy Birthday" message on the plate. I wanted it to be a special evening and I definitely chose the right place!
