We were celebrating my 70th Birthday. They didn’t offer a celebratory dessert :( The food was good, our server great, and the live Hawaiian music and dancers wonderful! We ordered the Wipeout cocktail (like a Blue Hawaii) - it tasted very artificial and seemed to have watered down alcohol. We left most of it. The view of Waikiki at sunset is great and the location is convenient to our hotel. We probably would not return, though.

My family went here again (2nd time) and the service was awful. It took a very long time just to get water. It took a little more than 40 min to get our food from when we arrived. It took just over 15 min and us waving down the waiter to remind him we needed the dessert menu. I think he kept forgetting us and the restaurant was not that busy.

My sister and I had a reservation for outdoor seating, but was able to change it to indoor due to rain. We were at a table close to the exterior doors and had a view of the palm trees and beach at sunset. Fresh sea air and a wonderful view added to the ambiance of our dinner. The taro rolls (purple bread) with vanilla banana butter were different, but turned out to be tasty. The meal was tasty and filling. Ordered unsweetened tea and found it to be weak, but never found satisfying tea in Hawaii.

Made a reservation via OpenTable only to arrive and be told they're not open and no longer serve breakfast and that OpenTable still hasn't changed the hours. If that's the case then CALL and tell the person with the reservation before they show up.

I have been before and loved tikis many times. But was greatly disappointed this week and saddened as had been so looking forward to it on our trip.
I would still recommend from previous memories but would also mention the terrible service this time.

Our waiter was very sarcastic and not entirely customer service oriented. After the third comment I decided to tip only 10%, which was a generous amount. I would recommend this place to a friend as long as they don't have the waiter I had. I apologize, I cannot remember his name. I know, doesn't do much good 🤷

Visited this place three years ago and was so excited to return. The location, staff at the front and food was great but our waiter seemed disinterested, rude and almost as if we were a nuisance. Unlike everywhere else we had visited he had no interest in interacting even slightly with us.

Girls at the front were a different story and did their best to accommodate our large party to get closer to the band after we had eaten our meal. If it hadn’t been for the waiter I would have given this place higher reviews but he really did dampen the night.

Great diner with an overlook of Waikiki Beach during the sunset in the West. Fish Tacos & Macadamia nut crusted Mahi Mahi was great. Dinner was enjoyable & delicious.

Great location over looking Waikiki beach. Live music and lovely ambiance. Service was great with a vast selection of food for all dietary needs. Drinks from cocktails to local beers were available but although the food was fresh and delicious it was a slightly overpriced.

We reserved an outside seating but when we got there, they said it’s a 40-45 min wait. What’s the point of making a reservation if we have to wait. They did not plan very well. First table available was all the way at the back. It looked like they just added some tables there because they are too many people. Server barely passed by because we were at the back that you can barely see us.
Food was ok. Calamari was the “favorite” but I was not impressed. Other foods were ok. Nothing outstanding.

There’s no indoor seating as advertised on open table. The tables are super close and over crowded. The food seems to be just pre heated meals. Nothing seem fresh, ribs were horrible, tough, chewy. Wife’s pasta with shrimp no flavor and greasy.

Good food, nice atmosphere and nice view. My husband and I enjoy here almost every year. It's a very small thing, but other table hade a birthday service, but we didn't. Staff knew that day was my husband birthday, and that was a birthday dinner. Anyway we enjoyed food and the fireworks.

Outdoor tables one floor above street level. Service was very good. Band playing was Vaihi: excellent!!! My friend and I had nut encrusted fish that was just OK: a bit overdone. Husband had ahi tuna with wasabi rice, which was very good. We would definitely return again and experiment with different entrees. Great location and energy!!

It's a great location. The food is more catered to tourists. Price is much higher than similar restaurants in downtown. The worst thing is we were there celebrating anniversary, which I specified during reservation, but the restaurant didn't do anything to acknowledge the anniversary. It's not that much work to have a nice gesture to send a small dessert for the table. It's very disappointing the restaurant doesn't have any policy for celebrating.

Sat for over 20 minutes before someone came to our table. Ordered immediately, drinks took forever to come. When our food was brought it was shoved on the table next to our now finished appetizer but old plates were left on the table the entire time leaving virtually no room. Even after we ordered more drinks. We were ignored again for a long time after finishing dinner and then I grabbed a different waitress just so we could grab the bill to leave. Wasted a lot of time just because our waitress decided to stand around and chat with others. Very unpleasant, food was good but not great for the money we spent.
