Food, ambience and service great but huge disappointment that they took away the bread and mango butter. For the cost, to not offer any kind of bread would be a disappointment but what restaurant doesn't serve bread? We like to relax and have a drink or wine with bread before our dinner. Also, it's time to update the carpet and decor, hasn't changed in the 30 years we've been coming, that and bread, perfect #10!

Food was great. Fois gras appetizer was incredible. Took about an hour for two of us which was one rotation of the restaurant - great to see all the lights of the island on one side and the pitch black of the ocean on the other.

Food was amazing but pirtion size was very small compared to normal meals eaten out. At about $35 for an entree I had hoped for a bit more food.

Incredible 360 degree sunset view of Waikiki. Excellent food. Courteous and prompt service. Made for an outstanding birthday experience. Photographer took a nice photo of us as a souvenir (for a small price). Very memorable experience! Thank you!!!

We were in Waikiki on our honeymoon and someone at the resort suggested Top of Waikiki. I am so glad that he did. The atmosphere, the view, the staff and the food was outstanding! If you get the chance to dine here, do so, you will be glad that you did!

Our evening was awesome. Our waiter Dan was very good at his job. He made us feel like we were the only ones there. He constantly had his eye on us and made our experience perfect. Food was delicious and portion sizes were great. The view was amazing arriving at the right time watching the sunset then all the city lights were spectacular. Would highly recommend this gorgeous restaurant to all. Only down side was the noise level from the bar area. The guests at the bar need to realise this a fine dining restaurant not the local pub noise should’ve been controlled to match the setting. Overall will definitely be back.

Had a very good meal with a great View of Waikiki - often times the food at places like this is just so so but not here - food was very good - and service couldn't have been better.

Wonderful dinner. We ordered the Filet Mignon. The pear salad was scrumptious. The filet and mashed potatoes were delicious. The steak was cooked just right. We also ordered dessert, the chocolate molten butter cake. It was delicious also. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. The servers were very attentive and friendly. The view was out of this world creating a unique ambience. It was a great experience!

For a restaurant whose main attraction is the view, you would think the windows would be clean enough to see through and/ or snap a photo. Very disappointing.

Delightful views! Romantic atmosphere. Very professional. Photographer was a nice touch.
Bit of a muck up with our reservation for sunset... Almost missed it! They gave our table to the wrong couple, while we were waiting to be seated. Air Con was cold- so they gave me a shawl, Thankyou :)
The food was local and fresh. Waiter was friendly. Would go back again!

The food was excellent and so was the overall experience! Service was good and so was the menu.

The main criticism I have is that we booked a reservation for 5:45 in hopes to see the sunset. They seated us at a table on the opposite side of the sunset and we didn't see it at all. It was the main reason for choosing this restaurant and this time. So that was a failure on the hostess. It was a bit of a let down.

We saw Top of Waikiki from the street while we were driving and I told my friend that it was probably a revolving restaurant and before we had made it to our hotel, he had made a dinner reservation for the next night. Though we had a reservation, we did have a wait about 10 minutes to be seated but the waiting area was comfortable. The views were fantastic and the food and the service was even better! We got a bottle of the Pinot Noir, I had the non-traditional gnocchi (so delicious and fresh!), and the Chocolate Lava Cake for dessert. My friends loved what they ordered, as well - we all cleaned our plates. Our server was very attentive and helpful with his dinner recommendations and I would recommend it to others in a heartbeat.

 (Tucson)·Dined on January 3, 2018

There isn't much to say about this restaurant, which has about a 290, not 360 degree of view within the 360 revolution. Poorly designed for viewing, but exceptionally well designed for squeezing the most diners into the smallest spaces. Certainly doesn't compare to the CN Tower in Toronto, which is a must-do on a clear day!
