Absolutely delicious food and drinks. Somewhat pricey but nothing outrageous and all within reason as it is a beachfront restaurant with terrace ocean views. The food was again amazing and the drinks were high quality. Will definitely be returning next time we are in Hawaii!

We were seated next to the kitchen and it was very noisy. I asked to be moved. I told the hostess that the night was a very special night for me and my lady and I and was moved into a doorway. I told the hostess that this option would not do. She went to get the manager. The manager moved us to a table in the back where I could sit next to my partner and have a quiet evening. The manager sent out a complimentary starter that was very good. Overall it was a good evening.

Dinner on the patio overlooking the beach was really amazing. Everything from the Souvenir tiki mugs to the 20 layer dessert cake was perfect. I couldn’t ask for any better service or experience.

The Chinese chicken salad was fresh but lacked some flavor. It could definitely benefit from a spicy peanut sauce dressing or drizzle.

We were in Honolulu for our 10th anniversary and had dinner and drinks the first night. The food and drinks were great, but the band was really entertaining! Thanks to Tiki’s for hiring local musicians! Highlights included the smoked meats in a pineapple (wow, still thinking about it), the 1944 Mai Tai, and the taro bread with vanilla/banana butter (so good!)

The service was excellent. The entertainment was great as well. I wish we had a better view of the sunset. Overall the food was great. I ordered the chicken Parmesan and I did feel the chicken was a tad dry but everything else was Phenomenal. Mai tai drink was great!

Tikis is a great place to go for a superb meal and drinks. The view across Kalakaua Avenue to the ocean is wonderful. We were lucky to be sat outside and it was wonderful to enjoy our meal while watching the amazing sunset.

The menu is extensive and very good value. Great ambience, great food and great service. Thoroughly recommended.

The wife was skeptical as the menu at the surface looks the same as most places like this, but the quality and yum-factor was superb! The live music was fun if not exceptional, and a highlight was the entertainer's two children joining him on stage (which helped engage our 4yo as well). Everyone left quite happy.

When we made our reservation it allowed us to choose an outside table (much more desirable and really the reason for going to this restaurant) This option for your reservation means nothing when you arrive at the hostess stand. The outside tables apparently are first come first seated amongst the walk ups and those with reservations. We were initially seated inside and I asked the manager why this option was available on opentable if it is meaningless. She apologized and to her credit moved us to a nice table outside. The food was good and our server was excellent. Just be aware that you are not assured an outside table even if you specify it on your reservation. Enjoy!

If you can get a table outside, the view is outstanding. Although the view is over the road, the sunsets over Waikiki Beach can be gorgeous. This is a world-class venue with good food, good service, and reasonable prices. Because it is in Waikiki, this local forgets about it and am reminded how nice it is every time I go. Check it out and enjoy yourself!

Dining at Tiki’s tonight was really disappointing unfortunately. Tiki’s has been one of my places I recommend to anyone when you’re visiting Hawai’i however our server ruined out experience tonight completely.

To start off at check in we had to wait 15 min with a reservation. Busy Saturday night... ok I tried to understand some disorganized service in some point. Our server was friendly only until he gets our order and he completely ignored us and we had to wait for food more than 30 min. He passed by so many times to serve the big table right next door but he never paid attention to our empty table. We had to stop him to see if he didn’t forget our order and he finally spoke to us saying it’s coming right now.
We finally got our food but the presentation disappointed me as well because the entree came in such a small plate and I thought it was an appetizer. My duck entree never looked like an entree costs $32 so as my friend’s catch of the day because of the presentation. I know they usually better how they present food so it was disappointing. Our server didn’t check up on us at all while we’re eating even though he walking by so many times right by our table.
My wine glass was empty and he never brought us a dessert menu but we decided not to expect and leave.

I just hope they won’t disappoint me again like tonight and I’am hoping to have a great time next time I go back.

The best part of our dinner was sitting outside. We had perfect weather the only drawback was the band was so loud we could not have a conversation. I have Celiacs so I was very excited that they had Gluten Free options. Out of the 3 dinner options the server recommended the ribs. I love ribs so I went ahead and ordered them, they look and smelled delicious but they were horrible. The worst ribs I have every had. I could not eat them because there was no meat it was all fat. It was a very expensive dinner that was horrible I would not recommend this restaurant.

Restaurant is located on the second floor with a great view for sunset if you sit outside. Wonderful service and food. Liked it so much on our first visit so dined there a second time while on our vacation.

Ronnie is the best Chef in Oahu, we visit Waikiki at least 3 times per year and we always make sure to visit Tiki’s, we love the food and the entire experience is exactly what we are looking for, it’s fun and yet casual and always a great time!! We have at least 30 1944 Mai Tai glasses from Tiki’s and we will continue to collect them every chance we get 👍🏼💕🍹🌴🔥

My fiancé and I found this ( kinda touristy) place for a last minute valentines date. The mai tais and pork quesadillas are amazing! I am a big fan of love music and outdoor seating and the views and sounds did not disappoint. There was a wedding party there at the same time so was a bit more cramped in the patio than I think is usual ( plus duh it was Valentine’s Day) but well worth the money and crowds. Good food and souvenirs if you are sappy like me. We will definitely be coming back!
