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.

We had such a fantastic evening enjoying great food and drinks as well as fantastic entertainment! We were seated on the patio right in front of the live music. Our best time in Waikiki yet! We will definitely be back to enjoy happy hour!

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!

The ambiance was nice and the food was amazing. The only thing that could be improved upon is the service. We waited a while to even order our food and it took a long time to get out drinks/food.

We had wonderful memories of Tikis from previous vacations here, not so good this time. The wine bottle we ordered was out of stock, the alternate we ordered was out of stock. Now the choice is expensive. So we ordered glasses, which arrived as we were finishing our meal. Not much empathy from the waiter. I think we will skip it next trip,

I had a wonderful time showing off Hawaii by bringing my guests directly from the airport. Beautiful views and entertainment. The guitarists and hula performers we're fantabulous. The food was delicious with great variety. Our server was attentive, efficient and kind. Mahalo!

日没後のハワイ最終日のディナーで利用しました。予約通り、テラス席を用意して頂いていて、とても雰囲気が良かったです。
賑やかな生演奏と共に美味しくてボリュームのあるステーキなどをいただきました。味もスタッフの心配りも最高でした‼️
次回、ハワイへ行く際も、是非利用したいです。

Made a reservation several days in advance, but then needed to increase the party size. Unsuccessful doing this via OpenTable, but called and got lucky! The were able to accommodate our party size with no problem. Table was ready on time as promised, outside as requested. The staff were all very nice, service was prompt. Overall a great experience there! Mahalo!

Our server was great! Very attentive and polite. And manager came over to fix an issue we had and she was nice. We eat here every year when we come usually they’re very good but this time (the reason I gave 3 stars) is because our food was cold and the red wine was ice cold. Food should be warm or HOT! And red wine should be room temp. Manager explained that due to the hot weather all year the put wine in fridge to it won’t spoil. Just wish they’d figure out something else. And food was cold I think because there are so many people here that servers can’t get it out fast enough. End of the day the tiki cups rock we are finishing our collection. We’ll go back I just hope the manager reads my reviews to just step it up a bit. Be as good as they were in past.

We are kamaaina so we ordered the kamaaina special after asking if there was medium rare pieces. The answer was yes but when the prime rib arrrived it was well done. The manager did substitute a New York steak done medium rare but that entailed some waiting time. The coconut Shrimp and Kalamari appetizers were very good. We got to see the beautiful sunset.
