No need for reservations! View is across a street but still an ocean view. Food is acceptable at best. Don't recommend the French dip.

Pretty good drinks! The lamb was a bit overcooked and dry; edamame was a little salty but the Thai puttanesca was pretty tasty. There was a young lady taking photos 2 for $25; additional for $12.50. She was awesome! Great ambience thought and there was a local band playing and Hawaii ladies dancing. Great evening!

Our last visit to tiki's was so good we came a few times during our stay. Sadly it has changed. The service was not great. We visited for drinks first and ended up having to go and get our own drinks. We waited for quite a while but no one came near us despite there being plenty of staff standing around. Same for our second drink and no one bothered to pick up glasses or offer food. Very disappointing .

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.

Our Friday evening visit for dinner coincided with an annual festival occurring on the adjacent oceanfront drive. We had looked forward to the live music, but was not available due to the loudness of the festival (which also made it difficult to hear in the restaurant itself). The meals were very unique and delicious and we tried two of their signature desserts as well. For the food, service, and interesting drink options, we definitely want to return.

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.
