Contemporary American
2022 James Beard Award Winner for Best Chef Northwest & Pacific.

Rooted in the local farm-to-table movement — a place where seasonality and culinary tradition are celebrated in tandem. One part Hawaii and one part Brooklyn. The atmosphere shares a brasserie feel with a laid-back island sensibility—a celebration and homage to all of our favorite things we enjoy eating and drinking.

Crafted with brick & reclaimed wood, our urban Hawaiian farmhouse features an open kitchen, lush plant wall, brick walls, and lots of natural light in a historic Chinatown building. The bar mixes classic and modern cocktails with artisanal flare with a well-curated wine list.

    The best meal hands down we have had on the islands. The roast chicken was perfectly done and the drinks were top notch. We can’t wait to dine at Fete again.

    Love all the specials they have. We ordered 3 entrees, (1 special, 2 pastas) 2 pupus, and 1 side. That was enough food for 4 people sharing. Everything was delicious. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. We sat upstairs in the library to save time, but I prefer the main room. There was no apparent difference in service. It's just the library feels a little sterile to me. Personal preference.

    Josh as always described the specials with delicious detail. The only hard thing about Fete is deciding which amazing entree to order. Fortunately, you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. From the drinks, appetizers, specials to desert everything is perfection! I will keep coming back to my favorite restaurant.. hands down not even close you all are amazing! Thank you

    We had a reservation for an early dinner and felt a little squished between the other 2 person tables. However the food was great. Had the Korean Bavette and Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich. The pricing for the Cider alcoholic drink was a little bit high.
