    We are usually so grateful for the quality of their service and food, but this time was a disappointment. I remarked that it was my aunts birthday (a leap year birthday), but the waiter didn’t ask nor mention. The waiter took a long time to bring anything we asked for such as coffee or water. We are local people who visit the Plumeria very often. It was a disappointing experience. Hope it’s only this time

    the dinner was for a local Hawaiian singing group and the restaurant guests were mainly locals. The menu came and there were only some very expensive meals and some of the regular menu items were deleted. My wife's meal was good; my meal was inedible. The chicken was so tough a knife wouldn't go through it. I told the main greeter about this and she offered to take it off the bill. This showed good customer service. The waitstaff were attentive and good.

    I wanted to experience their ramen special by a visiting Chef but it was sold out. I did not find out about this until I got there, they said they tried to call me - but only a few minutes before my reservation time! We had to eat so we stayed and ordered from their usual menu. Awesome view of the beach and koko head. We were seated under an umbrella with a nice breeze from the ocean, Food were pleasantly presented and tasted good. The service was warm and staff were attentive to our needs. There were flies because of the outdoor but staff provided a fly fan to deter the pest. Although I was disappointed that we didn’t get to taste the ramen special mishap; we were satisfied with the service and the food/drinks that we had. We will certainly come back again.

    We were.a little disappointed with our visit to the Plumeria Beach House this time. Why, it felt like the food was so so compared to the food of the past. The quality of the food simply was not to the standard we enjoyed in the past. Lastly, while we were eating, one of the staffers started breaking down tables behind where we seated and dragged them across the floor making a very unpleasant sound. For a high quality resort, it gave the feel and experience of maybe a three star dining experience.

    Overall, just a cold and unwelcoming atmosphere. An almost condescending and intense attitude from all the employees. Much better served elsewhere if you would like to experience local culture. Great if you’re someone who derives pleasure from a bland and tasteless environment! View is incredible though, but that’s always because the islands can never do wrong :)

    The ramen was so amazing! All of the dishes we tried were excellent. They may have been overwhelmed though, because the service was terrible. The waiter took extremely long to attend to us. We ordered dessert at the end, and after waiting 45 minutes, we cancelled it and went to another restaurant for dessert.

    Special guest ramen chef, not the regular PBH menu sadly. Overpriced, over-salted, and completely underwhelming in any other flavor ("triple garlic" mazemen had no garlic flavor at all). Not indicative of the quality of this restaurant or resort. Our server was also not well-trained and used verbiage that was not up to par for a 4-star resort. The location and atmosphere saved the evening. Review is mostly for the 6-item Ramen Special Night with a

    This was for the Chef Ivan Ramen experience. Despite the thin noodles, there was some bounce to the texture. On first spoonful, the hot shio had a familiar flavor. With subsequent spoonfuls, the broth became more complex with umami, good to the last drop. Although, I don’t usually have a tomato in ramen, the tomato was partly dried and good. The fried chicken was flavorful and had a very thin but crisp coating. The pastrami in a bun could have used more Russian dressing. The food not only attracted me but flies too which became more manageable with an electronic fly swatter suggested by the very busy server. Another waiter helped him out. Chef Ivan nicely visited customers. I would love to see him return to try his other dishes.

    Buffet experiences at Plumeria are a "Buyer Beware" situation. Foods which you expect to be temperature hot are not. This issue happens repeatedly. They are luke warm or room temperature, at best. It is completely unacceptable at a restaurant of a 5-star hotel such as the Kahala Hotel. The food from The Whole Foods' takeout buffet counter is much warmer.

    Have been going to Plumeria for a while, and the service seems to be slipping. Have had to flag down other service staff when they are visible for requests of our server. We had enjoyed going to the seafood Buffett, but the last couple of visits the food has not been hot or re-filled infrequently. It’s a shame because there was a time when both the food and service were worthy of finer dining classification

    First of all, service...our waiter, a 22 year veteran (sorry, I forgot to catch his name) at Plumeria Beach House, was exceptional. He was attentive to our every need, treated every table/party with the same attention and service, and truly made the experience wonderful. As for the food, it was everything you would expect from The Kahala, with the exception of salads. Strangely, I found the absence of salads baffling.

    Took my husband to the seafood buffet for his birthday. Everything was exceptional, from the food to the service. The food was high quality, the sashimi practically melted in your mouth, it was so fresh. They were also very efficient, refilling trays as they emptied. Sometimes at buffets, the table service is hit or miss. But at the Plumeria Beach House, the service is exceptional whether it’s a buffet or table service.

    So disappointing! The Valentine Day 3 course, meal we both ordered, the entrees were not up to your standards. Med rare rib eye steak I ordered was sinewy, tough and cooked medium. Mash potatoes were bland. Green beans were undercooked. The salmon cooked well was in a tomato sauce!? That was weird. The butternut squash and salad were good, the dessert was good. It’s Valentines Day so you put us an older couple inside next to a family with a baby? Yet the other tables closer to the outside were never occupied? Hmmm the customer experience was not up to the standard you usually have.

    The Curry Buffet was very good but different from most: all the meats were separate from the sauces. There was a choice of grilled chicken, beef, pork, and lamb. In separated servers there were four types of curry sauces to ladle over your meats and rice. The online menu mentioned that there would be Nasi Goreng and Satays, too, which we were excited about but they did not have it. There was a rice mixed with shrimp, garlic, etc. that maybe was supposed to be Nasi Goreng? There were no satays. Our service was excellent!! Eddie was totally on top of it! Love the Kahala Hotel and the Plumeria Beach House!
