    I was hoping for the same experience I had 13 years ago when I proposed to my wife there. They did NOT have the Chinese Steam Fish, but they still had it on the Menu. Portions were small. The Duck was terrible, so gamey. On the high note they made a nice effort to celebrate our Anniversary, with dessert. I can NOT Recommend. 😪

    Beautiful art decor with a warm ambiance. Service was top notch and everyone so friendly. From the host, to our server and the manager. Everyone was a delight. As always the food did not disappoint and we left extremely satisfied. We plan to go back for Tastin’ Thursday’s and also enjoy Amuse Wine Bar. We celebrate our anniversaries here as we’ve come to know that we’d get an exquisite dining experience.

    One of the best joints for gathering with friends. Not too much choice on food, but well serve with wine/cocktails. Excellent vibe and setup as usual. If tired with outdoors dining and party-like surroundings, this is really a must visit in Oahu.

    We haven’t been to Amuse Wine Bar in a few years. It was so awesome being back! Good food at great prices and a nice selection of wines. Our waitress was attentive and very kind. One of the wine carousel’s were down which housed my favorite type of wine but enjoyed all the other options. Looking forward to going back again soon! Cheers! 🥂

    We arrived at Amuse and had an appetizer (potatoes)and some wine. The server was very knowledgeable and prompt. The atmosphere had a strange vibe, it felt like we were interrupting a busy restaurant even though we had reservations, and it was not busy at all. We ended up squeezing in next door at Stage for food. Again the server was great but the food was sub par. We had their salmon special, just ok, and the truffle mushroom risotto which was great. Our mains were marlin (for me) and ribs for my partner. The Marlin was decent, but the smell through me off, it wasn’t quite fishy, just smelled off and I couldn’t get though it. My partner didn’t touch his ribs said they had no flavor. Neither of us touched our food. When we went to have one more drink at 8:40 we were told they’d already called last call….At 8:40, and they close at 10. We weren’t made aware of the last call. I also expressed it was a special occasion on the app and when they called confirming my reservation, and it was not acknowledged at all. We wouldn’t come back.

    Disappointed with a few of the prices for the portion size. But I guess it's the trend now with the increase overall for goods & services. Although I'm not a wine drinker, I thought the wine tasting is a very interesting concept.

    Arrived early and so they wouldn’t let us in, but when 5 pm opened a couple that came after us was seated even though we had and another party had arrived and we’re waiting prior on the seats outside the seat. Oh wells. Was expecting happy hour as a menu online on open table had listed but it was nice to have a sit down dinner with some cocktails instead. Otherwise service was great. Our server was quick and refilled our drinks very efficiently. It also wasn’t too full as i didn’t think it would be for the 5 pm seating. As for food…Ordered a bunch of sides-garlic cheese loaf, Brussels sprouts, fried cauliflower, and the New York steak twice for entrees. Cheese loaf was great. The Brussels sprouts were just ok. Tasted a bit like stewed cabbage. Definitely needed a better char and to be less wet. The fried cauliflower was great. The dipping sauce wasn’t too hot. As for the steak. I did like the sauce but the meat seemed a little on the well done side, not the medium rare as the server had mentioned it would be. Also wished that it had arrived hot. For some reason the meat was barely warm. A bit odd for steak… For dessert we had the chocolate bar with Kona coffee ice cream. Despite ordering already so much food, the dessert sealed the dinner for the evening. The chocolate bar was so rich but delicious. Loved the Kona coffee ice cream and the chocolate wafers. Definitely would order this again. Would be back again. But would probably try another entree.

    Holy cow. What an experience. Beautiful location, live piano, awesome decor, amazing service. Food was excellent; ordered garlic bread, Brussel sprouts, shrimp scampi, duck entree, and banana tart. The highlight of the night was the Island Ahi Dynamite appetizer. Hands down the best plate I’ve ever had in my life, truly an emotional experience. Best spot in Hawaii thus far and I’ve lived here a year. Bravo.

    so many wonderful choices on the menu. Haven't been to Stage in a long time. It used to be a favorite for lunch - no lunch anymore. Anyway...when I see too many great items on a menu, I go toward creating my own BUFFET of appetizers. Hamakua Ali‘i mushroom salad - delicate and looks like I'd want more but it's really the right size portion for a dish like this. The crispy garlic is wonderful...nice touch of truffle (I hate too much), and that kick of chili puree. Masterful!! Ahi Dynamite - So hard to choose but if I had to only order one item from my "buffet", it would be this one. Memorable. Charred Brussel Sprouts - nice charring and love balsamic reduction!! Kai Choy - was replaced with another type of "choy" (lol) - I didn't read the description well but that kick of chinese mustard was a great surprise!! My friend had the Grilled Certified Angus NY steak. WOW...so tender, I love mushrooms (oh yeah, I had to taste it!), and the flavor was amazing. Again...that delicate use of truffle and those amazing crispy garlic thingys. We had the dessert special...sorry can't remember the name, but it had a wonderful mango puree and oh so good! The Lilikoi creamsicle was the other favorite...the combination of flavors was wonderful. Great coffee - french press - excuse me!! And last but not least...always adds to a wonderful dining experience...GREAT SERVICE!!! Thanks!

    Well the best feature about this wine bar was that they had 30 plus wines on a machine that you can get a 2oz pour or a full glass of wine.When we arrived we found that the wine system hasn’t been in service since COVID 2years ago.We would not have gone for there never 15$ glass of low to middle tiered wines. It said nothing on website about being shut down.Then we heard another story about waiting for a part for over a year.Won’t be going back .!!!!!!!

    We were disappointed because there was nothing on website about all the self serve wine was broken. This is main reason for us going to this restaurant. They said it’s broken and are not sure when it will be fixed. This should be on the website so people know before going.
