    I took my daughter here for her birthday and we had the best time!! The desserts were amazing!!! The tea was delicious! The waiter (wish I could have remembered his name) but he was outstanding. The highlight is the blueberry scones with lilikoi butter. I’m going back to just buy a whole bunch of those. Highly recommend!! Everyone who works there is so nice and friendly. I give this experience 5 stars / top notch!

    Fabulous location, food and service. Took my mom here for her birthday and she is very hard to please. She told me she loved everything about it, especially the service, and she would like to come visit again. Very satisfied with our visit and we’ll be back again soon.

    Afternoon tea was exceptional - our server Calvin was always attentive and never intrusive. Well thought out menu from the sandwiches to the different array of desserts. Manager Justin came by to see if we needed anything further and made sure our bride to be felt special. Best afternoon tea on island!

    At one point, we were bothered by cigarette smoke coming from downstairs for about 5 min. But other than that, everything was fantastic. I just wish people follow the law and not smoke where they are not supposed to, even if they think they are hiding perfectly.

    This was the third time my wife and I have had afternoon tea on the Veranda. It was my wife’s birthday present from our son and daughter. We were in Hawaii for a family vacation including the kids and grandkids. The Veranda didn’t disappoint. Michael was our waiter and his attention to the details made the experience memorable. Everyone but my wife got the First Lady. She was the guest of honor and received the Royal Tea. All of the food items tasted great and were First Class. The tea selections provided are outstanding and everyone was able to select their own tea. I’m looking forward to a return to the Veranda for tea.

    We had the Monet inspired afternoon tea after seeing Beyond Monet. It was a lovely afternoon. My daughter opted for the Vegan savories and thought the taro croquette was excellent, delicious. I enjoyed the assorted sandwiches, a delicious selection including salmon , egg, ham and cheese and a mushroom tart. The scones with lilikoi curd were excellent, followed by a very nice assortment of tea cakes. A very pleasant tea on the veranda overlooking the pool and ocean.

    I made reservations weeks in advance in anticipation of afternoon tea with my family while visiting Oahu. I requested a table closest to the ocean. When we arrived we were seated at furthest from the ocean. We were practically indoors. We couldn't see the ocean at all but had a few birds fly by and one landed on my niece's head. I inquired about why my request was not only ignored but was given the very opposite of my request. The reply was that the she just started her shift and our table was already set. I want to say the food and service made up for it but I can't. It was okay. I had to ask for cream honey, and sugar. I guess that is not a standard for tea service here. I also had to ask for hot water refills for my tea. Service was cheerful and the sandwiches and desserts were tasty but lacked creativity. For nearly $600 I expected more. They included obligatory gratuity. Hmph.

    My good friend and I have celebrated our friendship several times with tea on the Beranda. It is always the same, delicious, memorable, and so beautiful. Thank you for always being there. This time, one of the desserts commemorated Beyond Monet, which we both attended. Finally one of us is vegetarian, and they accommodated so well. Thank you Moana Surfrider for our special memories over the years.

    Delightful tea experience. Went for a belated mother's day celebration and were seated near the edge overlooking the beach. Our waiters were attentive and even offered to take our picture before we thought to ask. Finger sandwiches and sweets were all delicious. There was a nice breeze coming through but definitely dress casually and cool.
