Excellent food, service, and ambiance. We had the duck pizza, short ribs over wasabi mashed potatoes, cioppino, and the mango creme brulee for dessert. Unique flavors with an amazing view. :)

One of my favorite restaurants in Waikiki, revolves every hour for spectacular views. A man proposed tonight while his girl was distracted by the photographer. It was wonderful. Places is best for dates, but okay bringing family. Was a bit pricey for the Tomahawk steak for two, nearly 200 for that single item, but worth it considering the taste, prep time, and the fact that it's Hawaii.

Service was a little slow at first. Took almost 15 minutes for the waiter to come to us the first time just to get drinks. After that it got better. And the restaurant wasn’t full so didn’t seem like there was a very good reason for the wait.

This is my second time at Top of Waikiki. I’m from NYC and came back for dinner with my party of 7 to celebrate a birthday. First I had to put down a credit card to make the reservation and agree to pay $25 if I cancelled less than 48 hours ahead of time. Then on the same day, they called me to confirm and make me agree to the same terms and that there is a two hour maximum. When we arrived at the venue 10 minutes earlier than our reservation, again they reminded me there was a 2 hour maximum. I told them if they serve us quickly we won’t have a problem. The food and service was ok. But I kept looking at the watch. Sure enough, it was and hour and 45 min and there was no time for dessert and we were there to celebrate a birthday. The rest of the party was fine with the food, service and ambience. For me, coming from NYC, you folks are too full of yourselves. There are plenty of fine dining restaurants that don’t have all these rules. It effected my experience and I didn’t enjoy the dinner. I won’t be back.

The restaurant is trying out new dishes to possibly add to a future menu. One of them was a French Onion Soup that was delicious. The cheese that was overlaid over the toast was very good and tasted expensive. Unlike many other French Onion Soups, this one was not overly salty; it was just right. The only suggestion to improving the dish is that it be served in lesser quantity; in a smaller bowl. The soup itself was very filling and it was a meal in itself. In fact, I couldn't eat very much of my entree, which was Maitake mushrooms in truffled "Farroto" because the soup was so filling and great in volume. Still, I give a big thumbs up to the soup....Put it on the next update of the menu.

It's hard to beat the lovely view from this tip top restaurant. There was a lovely sunset the night we were there. Crab cake appetizer was quite good, but when we got the pear salad, we recognized that it would be a lovely dining experience. Recommend!

The service was extremely slow. The table a few down from us arrived after us, received their meal, dessert and completed their dining experience before we received our main course. When it was obvious to our server that we were unhappy, he said our food would be out in a few more minutes. When we asked about the table that completed their meal, he said that “there is nothing he could do” in a non apologetic tone.

At that point, we requested the check for the items we did receive and left.

I do not recommend.

Food was excellent. Great quality and presentation. Service was horrible. Very slow and inattentive. Left finished cocktail glasses on table all through dinner even though they came by. Dinner was incredibly slow to come out. Nice atmosphere, great food. Lousy service.

Much better bar experience from the last time we visited. Came extra early before dinner reservation. There were seats available at the bar. I still do not like the way they advertise a happy hour but only allow you in if there is a seat. There is no standing and there is not a lot of bar seats. Once you get in or if you do not plan on going to the bar before dinner the remainder of the experience is awesome! The atmosphere, view, food all amazing! We have the dinner for 2. A bit pricey but we throughly enjoyed every bite. Overall very good. We like to enjoy a cocktail before dinner and just don't like the way they run there happy hour seating. Especially when we were with another couple and if there is only 2 seats then only 2 are allowed in or they will give the seats to another couple until 4 seats open, and that may not happen.

I have had the pleasure of dining at a number of revolving restaurants. Some depend on the novelty and the changing view to generate a steady flow of customers, and the meals and service are secondary considerations. Not so at the Top of Waikiki ... this is fine dining, Hawaii style. While the dress code is relaxed (no sleeveless tee shirts, please), the service is prompt, friendly and professional. Food proportions are ample (no one in our party felt a need for either an appetizer or dessert), and as we say in the islands, 'ono (delicious). In fact, our dinner at the Top of Waikiki was easily the best that my guests enjoyed during their week long stay in Honolulu. Cocktails were what you would expect at a good restaurant, and the view of the ocean, Diamond Head, the Ko'olau Mountains and downtown will stay with my guests for a long time. Reservations are recommended, but we called ahead the day before and had no difficulty arranging a table for three on a Saturday evening. Prices were not cheap, but neither were they unreasonable and kama'aina rates are available. I highly recommend the Top of Waikiki, both to visitors and to those who have the privilege of living in paradise.

Good food, great location, not so good service. We were a table of 11. Were told no separate checks until finally they agreed to 4 separate checks but would not apply more than 1 credit card to each check. In this day/age, computers do all the work of payment so it should not be a problem. Food was delish is expensive.

Not sure what happened between my last visit in 2017 and recently, but now the quality of the food has gone down hill just a bit. I ordered a steak which was delivered on the “cool side” which made me question how long it had sat. The Foie Gras was really good but everything else lacked. Money spent for quality was clearly greater than the latter. Service was good and the view is still excellent. A lot of seats however were available which made me think that people might be looking elsewhere rather than going back.

I had not dined at the Top of Waikiki since the early 70s and was happy to find that its ambiance, quality of service and menu remained excellent. Its decor had been updated (probably several times) and now allows for better views of Waikiki from virtually every table. It was a memorable experience and I will be back soon! Aloha!

I took my girlfriend who’s from Honolulu to celebrate and she couldn’t have been more impressed. We ended up having the filet mignon (each) which had been made very well (we ordered medium rare). I had timed our reservations for the sun to set and it may have been the only thing that could’ve distracted us from our food. Everyone had been incredibly kind and knowledgeable providing great recommendations for other things we ordered. It all made for the perfect evening that we won’t soon forget.

Looking for the perfect topper for your stay in Waikiki?...well look no further! My wife and I were celebrating our 29th Anniversary and Top of Waikiki completely knocked it out of the park! The 360 views were breath-taking...our Server, Darren, was incredibly attentive...and the Filet Mignon was some of the finest we have ever had. You want to go home feeling on top of the world...then, make your reservation NOW for Top of Waikiki!

The food, the service, the atmosphere and the view were amazing! We had the scallops, the beet, avocado and goat cheese salad and the surf and turf. All the food was bright, flavorful and fresh. The cocktails were also great, I really enjoyed the Kona Winds. The apple pie was a perfect end to the meal.

We wanted to try a other revolving dining restaurant and was excited to see this offered in Waikiki. The ambiance was great and we got to see the views of the city, which was nice. The food was not so good. I had the prime rib which had a lot of fat and very stringy/chewy. The calamari did not have any flavor and the coating was a bit soggy. On the flip side My son had the lobster which he said was very good...but they charge you an extra $10 to have it shelled (we dine out a lot and this was a first).

A few notes on the service..they were attentive but many times reached over all of us to place utensils or water on the table. It was awkward at best, in most fine dining establishments the servers would walk around the table to place utensils on the table.

Would not recommend this restaurant for the price that we paid.
