    My wife and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary at La Mer, and it was such an amazing experience. Our server Laurence was fantastic, and helped us through our courses, explaining in detail the rationale behind all the wine pairings. Over the course of our dinner, he also helped us take incredible ocean front pictures. We wouldn't be surprised if he was a professional photographer on the side! The manager and serving staff were incredibly helpful and thoughtful over the course of our meal, and we truly enjoyed ever minute of our dinner experience. We're already looking forward to going back for our 2nd year anniversary!

    Great location and fantastic ambiance. Service very good but a bit too „practiced“. Food good but not exceptional (at least when you know french cuisine in Europe). And very, very expensive..for the whole package.

    We went for our 31st anniversary and the staff made it very special for us. The food was so delicious and the presentation of the various courses was impressive. The service was outstanding and the ocean view spectacular. The filet of beef with foie gras, poached lobster with gnocchi and soufflé with three sauces exceeded expectations. A culinary delight!! Highly recommend La Mer for a special celebration. It was a very enjoyable experience!

    Excellent service and the ambience could not be beat. enjoyed the music outside on the patio and fantastic view of the ocean and Diamond Hiead. Very memorable evening. Food was very good and well prepared. The steak just melt in your mouth. Despite having the menu “dégustation «  would not say it was overall terribly imaginative french cooking but rather above ordinary . Certainly had better. Nevertheless well worth the splurge as it is not cheap, even with Hawaii’s expensive standards. Will be back.

    They do call in advance to inform guests of a dress code that is more formal than most places in Honolulu. Men need closed-toe shoes and button down shirts, and no ripped jeans, elegant evening wear for ladies. This a place for those looking for an old-style, elegant restaurant with a very heavy, traditional French menu. The menu is extremely small (3 appetizer options, no salads) and start at $50, entrees are about $75 and more. They encourage one of two tasting menus, but items can be ordered a la carte. The location and view are superb, the wait staff were exceptional. It was a very quiet experience, besides the live Hula music played at the bar below the restaurant (did not bother).

    Phenomenal experience at this luxurious restaurant tucked in Waikiki. I will dream about this menu and service for years to come. Cannot wait to come back and same more of the fabulous fare. The menu de soir delivered incredible seasonal flavor. And the service from Chip and Lawrence won’t soon be forgot. Come early so you can catch the sunset and an ideal pacing of course.

    All the staff were very friendly and they gave us a special table for our anniversary. I ordered separately and not the 7 or 4 course. I don’t care too much for Cavour or scallops. I had the beef which was reallly good and tender. My husband had the lobster. That was also good. There service was awesome and makes you feel special.
