The service was great and the ambience is exceptional but after having come here many times I’ve noticed the food quality was diminished. I had the miso butterfish and it was crumbly and dry and I opted to not eat it after a couple of bites. Not sure what happened but it was not as it has been in the past.

Always a pleasure to dine at Signature Steak. The food is great and the service is always outstanding. Priced like a Steak House should be but can't put a price on the service. Definitely would recommend anyone looking for a great place for delicious food with a view to head to Signature Steak.

Everything was good but our waitress didn’t explain the specials very well, even when I repeated what I thought she said, she acknowledged. However when I got the bill I was very surprised by the cost of the special. At that point, there is nothing we could have done but pay the bill. It just was a little confusing at the end of our dinner.

This is not our first time here though we love it as much as the first time. This visit was even sweeter since we were using certificates towards our meal! I had the petite filet and my husband had the bone in rib eye with the creamed spinach and beet salad as our sides. The apple pie ala mode was large enough to share. My only complaint is that the music is too loud. It is really hard to carry on a conversation and/or hear the waiter. Please turn down the both the play list and the live music. Let me know when the music is lowered and I may visit soon!

The view is worth the trip. The service was outstanding. Yuki, our waiter, was prompt and very efficient. The rest of the wait staff made sure that nothing went unattended. The food was good, but not why I would return. The Oysters Rockefeller were okay, but nothing special. The Bruschetta was simple, but an excellent example of letting the ingredients speak for themselves. The French Onion Soup was french onion soup. I have never had a bad bowl. The Spinach Salad was another example of the ingredients working well together. The Steak was okay, but I would not return for the steak. The Lobster was not overcooked and was very good. Skip the mashed potato soup. The Grilled Asparagus was grilled and delicious. We will be back to enjoy the view.

Wonderful dinner. Service was very slow but that’s Probably because it was valentine’s day. We had reservations and were quickly seated. Appetizers came out within 10 minutes but the entrees took 50 minutes after the appetizers came out. The waitress was very apologetic and came to update us 3 times that they were still working on our food. Once we got the food everything was delicious. We have to go back on a non-holiday to see if service is much faster. Great ambiance and quality of food!

We went to dinner here on Valentine’s Day and one thing we really didn’t like was the fact that it seemed like they added more chairs and table in the restaurant to fit more people. It was really crowded and we were seated literally right next to the hostess stand and directly in the walking pathway. We constantly had to watch out for people bumping us while walking through which made the evening a little less romantic. The food was good and our server was wonderful so that was a plus... Overall our experience was okay but as of right now we will definitely not be returning on a busy day like this.

The food and the view are awesome! Unfortunately, the service is poor. Our server didn't realize my bf's drink was empty, even his water glass also. I ordered the glass of red wine for my main dish steak, it became cold because it took a long time to serve me the glass of the wine. I really recommend you take the counter seat if you go there.

Took my wife to signatures for Valentine’s Day. This was our first time and definitely not our last. The front hostess was very nice and helped us to our table within minutes. The live jazz music was awesome and the servers all greeted us while walking to our seats. The view from the top was amazing allowing us to see the city and also catch the Friday night fireworks. We didn’t wait very long for our food but even if I had to I don’t mind because if they forfeit quality to get the food out on time then no thank you. We had the 16oz. Ribeye and the furikake salmon as our entree with the cream spinach and mash potatoes on the side. Our appetizer was oyster Rockefeller and that was great. The lighting could’ve been a little brighter where we were sitting but all in all my wife and I enjoyed this place. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that cares for quality food, service, and music.

The temperature of our steaks were wrong but only one was fixed. It felt like they didn’t want to remake mines. Even for a $60 steak. Sheesh

We have been to this restaurant several times and we have always had a good experience. However, this time we had that one really bad evening. Our table seemed like it was an afterthought; simply put there to squeeze in more people. There was high traffic, noise, no view and it was dark. The lighting didn't seem too bad until the sun went down and it got so dark, we could barely see our food. They brought our main dish out but forgot our salad so they took the food back to the kitchen while we ate our salad. When the main dishes came back out it was impossible to appreciate the presentation since it was so dark. We asked for another candle, but it didn't help. When it was time for dessert, I couldn't read the dessert menu because there was not enough light so I asked to have a manager come to our table so they could see what we were going through. Needless to say it was an unforgettable evening.

Was expecting a higher level of service, ambience and quality of food. A bit disappointing. It was packed, due to day before Valentine’s, but that is not an excuse. Felt almost like walking into a time warp, music was random everyone seemed rushed. Will spend money elsewhere, no plans to return.

Signature has an amazing classy ambiance, with live piano. An amazing view of the ocean and the harbor. I had the wagyu 10oz steak with lobster Mac and cheese and it was all absolutely mouthwatering!! Make sure to dress better than the regular island vibe as it is a much nicer place!

We would recommend this for a great happy hour spot. For dinner, while the food was good, the service was not the best and overall not worth the high price tag. But cool views and atmosphere and great happy hour deals

Happy hour was hopping. That's always exciting, those specials looked fantastic. Our waiter was excellent! He made great recommendations and was so personable. The piano was a nice touch, but wished the overhead speakers were just a notch lower as it was almost too difficult to talk across the table. Our booth was very nice and we had clear skies to see the east-facing horizon. The bad was the supermarket taro buns to start and the olive/balsamic seemed off tasting. Got the oatmeal crusted apple tart for dessert; the ice cream scoop was miniscule and the dessert seemed over done/burnt. I'd definitely make it a happy hour place to go.

Great ambiance amd view of the city. Service was outstanding. Most foods were "pre" prepared so modifications due to allergies was not available. Menu was very limited but service was fabulous and server did everything he could to make it enjoyable.

Music playing in background was loud and made it difficult to have a conversation. Food was good not great. Service was good not great. My water was not refilled regularly, neither was my plantation ice tea. Overall, good but not great, other steakhouses do much better.

Everything was wonderful. The food, service, table, quality for price except the noise level. We asked twice if music could be turned down. Apparently not. So, for us 3 seniors we probably won’t be back. Maybe it’s “energetic “ for young folks but for us, it’s exhausting trying to conduct a conversation.

We came in for a Thursdate and had a very good time
Donavon served us well
The New York was cooked perfectly and the Oysters Rockefeller were tasty
Caesar was a bit over dressed
Asparagas and Truffle Mash excellent
Desserts seem to be a bit lacking
We shared a Mousse and it was good
