    Friendly, welcoming staff immediately asked whose birthday we were celebrating. Excellent service and offered additional tea plates! Our second time there, we’ll make it every time we are in Honolu.

    A wonderful experience! The first time I had the afternoon tea was about 18 years ago and it was just as special and delicious as I remember. The Royal tea was fabulous. The finger sandwiches were yummy, the lobster soup was delicious and the sweet treats were perfect! I was so full I had to take a box to go. Atmosphere was wonderful! My favorite hotel in the island. Can’t wait until our next trip over from Kauai to do it again!

    The Duke burger was delicious. The service and help staff was great. Sadly, the finger sandwiches that are served with the tea sets were not very good. Not very tasty and definitely not worth the value.

    Such a cute and fun experience. I have done tea time twice with my friend for her bachelorette celebration and with my Mom for my birthday. Both visits were amazing, everything is yummy from the teas, sandwiches, the tea-infused champagne and sweets. I will come back again and again!

    I was able to sit near the water with a view so that is best part of going there. And only reason I would go there if the seat is near the water. Otherwise the service was good but the food was lauster. Expensive for tiny sandwiches not filled with much filling, tinyscones, desserts really didn't ha ea lit of flavor. A but of a disappointment at $69.00. Forgot to ask for the local discount as I could have gotten it cheaper.

    Great price for high noon tea, food was okay, tea pots could be nicer versus stainless tea pot, tea selection minimal but nice exotic selection, sweets were great accept they only had one flavor is scone offered on tower. Ambiance is what you are paying for, close to beach, on a veranda, etc. tables not too close but when you have tables in front and back if you with patrons the noise level can get high and hard to hear each other. Overall would go back.

    You must valet park at this hotel. While the Veranda does offer 4 hours of validated parking, you can expect to wait 40 minutes for the car when leaving. The hostess at the Veranda was more interested in having a conversation with her co-worker than greeting guests. After being told to “hang out over there” we waited almost 15 minutes to be seated even though the Veranda had just opened and there was no one else waiting to be seated. Service at the Veranda was fine. Michael was our server and he was polite and thorough when explaining the menu. Food was okay, egg salad sandwich and chicken curry sandwich were the most tasty items. Would not recommend for anyone to go there.

    I have afternoon tea at the Veranda whenever I’m in Waikiki. This is my third time this year. The food and service is exceptional. I have afternoon tea regularly in the San Francisco Bay Area and nothing compares to Afternoon Tea at the Veranda. The Veranda has the MOST delicious Tea sandwiches and the B E S T homemade deserts.

    Overall it was good. Was pricey for what you got. My salmon mousse had a fish bone in it. Showed the waiter and all he said was “that was not supposed to be in there”. Nice atmosphere. Good for a one time experience but probably will not be back.

    MUST TRY! The prosecco infused tea flights were delicious. So too we're the finger sandwiches and the "stolen bread" was sooooo good. There's also a cheeseburger and onion rings or fries option with beer. Whaaaaat?😮 The staff were extremely friendly and explained everything on the tiers. 💯 Of course there is NO WAY you can beat the ambiance of the Moana Hotel. Absolutely amazing

    We would have preferred a more even number of savoury to sweet items. There was a diabetic (which was not declared-so I take responsibility) amongst my guests who was unable to eat most of the afternoon tea. Even so more savoury would have been better as we all had a sugar overload

    The royalty at the veranda was amazing, and the server was so patient and kind, and took her time to explain everything to each one of us. She made it very easy for us to order, and for us to pay. If with a party of six, it is usually very hard to split payment at other restaurants, but she was able to split our checks individually when there was a group of six.
