We ordered the prime rib poke and quesadillas and they were both very delicious. The waiter was especially good and cheery which made for a very pleasant evening.

short wait with a reservation. Food was very good. Loved the pork quesadillas and my steak was cooked perfectly and very tasty, even enjoyed the brussel sprouts. Too full for dessert. Great food in a great setting.

1944 Mail Tai's are great and you get to keep the glass! Service was excellent and made our afternoon enjoyable after a long plane flight. Food choices were limited, but went well with our drinks and the hot weather.

We were seated in a sunny area and when I asked to move to another table they said they were already reserved even though I reserved also. No option was ever given for a table seating but I did state this was for our first and only honeymoon dinner out during our stay.
Nothing special about this place, flies were all over the food the moment it was out, the floors grout was so hot that my heel actually got caught in one of them and I almost sprained my ankle.
We are quick and I took most of my food to go.
People around us not even fully dressed just not true vibe that was given in the photos at all.
We thought we could give it a second shot and sit at the bar for drinks and the bartender complained to his bar back about us even getting seated and never came over to take our order, we ended up leaving.
Such a terrible experience, only positive thing was our waiter was nice and we made sure to leave a good tip bc he was very sweet.

Had the macadamia nut encrusted fish of the day. Absolutely delicious! Husband had the shrimp.
We were there on a Sunday. Both bands we saw were great. Place was busy , service was good. I had mentioned it was our anniversary on open table when I booked. They brought over dessert on the house with congratulations written in chocolate on the plate.

French Dip was not very moist, even with the aujus. The marlin dip was great as well as the sandwich with the same spread.

Used to be a great Waikiki restaurant. Meal was rushed, overcooked, and the food temperature indicated it had been plated and sitting for a while before arriving at the table. Music used to be "Hawaiian." Seems like they are going for a bar vibe now rather than a restaurant. We were supposed to go back next week with a large party, but that reservation was canceled after this disappointment.

Food and drinks were tolerable at best. Everything tasted like it came out of a box. Pina colada was a pre- made mix and margarita came in a large water glass. Ribs we ordered were literally brought out 5 minutes after we ordered it.

We had reservations for 5, we arrived early and they had no problem seating us. The coconut shrimp was so good as was the margarita. Husband had the 1/2 chicken which he said was really good. Waiter was friendly and attentive. Whenever we are in Waikiki, we always know we will have a great meal. Oh and the view isn’t so bad either.

Fun environment with Live Music at around 5:30 and check before going if that’s your goal. Don’t expect to much from the name Tiki other than signature drinks in different Tiki style glasses. Food is ok but the view of Waikiki makes this establishment a great deal.

We celebrated my husbands 30th birthday here while we were in Oahu. Live music was great. We had wings for an appetizer. My husband is still talking about how good they were. Drinks were awesome and could even take home glasses for souvenirs. Our waitress Sadie was excellent! Would definitely recommend checking out this spot if you’re in Oahu!
