    The Thanksgiving experience buffet for a hefty $115/each didn’t even include a cocktail or glass of wine. Packed house, long lines for food, waited beyond our reset time, buffet food “ok”

    We made reservations for the Thanksgiving Dinner at 6:45pm. Considering the price of $115.00/per person, I was expecting a more lavish buffet. While the Kahala Resort looked amazing from the outside, inside the Plumeria was very disappointing. "Ambiance" was more like a senior living cafeteria style facility with no holiday decor. They initially tried seating us under - what was clearly a last minute 2-top - an extremely bright spot light (apparently to put us closer to the 'chow line'). When we found this unacceptable, we were located to the far dark corner on the outside patio. The food was served in scarce portions, and very limited selection. I do not have a positive thing to say about this experience. Would definitely NOT recommend.

    The food lone wasn’t normally where it is so we had to walk/carry our plates a distance. The was only 1 carving station and we had to wait 15mins to get to the station and wait again because NO prime rib and NO crab plus the turkey was in need of replacement also. The snow crab had very small pieces and were told that there was on a little dungeons crab on the bottom. The rest if the food was good and the server was very good considering he had to be at so many tables.For the Thanksgiving price $$ we paid it was DEFINITELY not worth it. We have been to Plumerias Buffet many times before and it was great, but last night (Thanksgiving) we were left very DISAPPOINTED and felt taken advantage of. Such a shame, I felt bad for my wife who I promised a great meal, not cooking Thanksgiving dinner for the first time….

    Plumeria Beach HouseResponded 7 days agoAloha! Apologies the Thanksgiving buffet was not to your expectations. Holiday dining can be a bit busier and our staff hustles to provide a great experience for every guest. It appears we missed the mark for your family and our sincere apologies. We appreciate your patronage and hope to serve you again. Mahalo!

    Thanksgiving Buffet - Have to say I was expecting more considering the price. The food was so, so. The sushi and poke were pretty tasty, but the turkey was over cooked, the stuffing was really just dried up garlic croutons and the line to get to the carving station, which was the only way to get turkey, prime rib, etc. was ridiculously long. There was nothing food wise that really stood out as unique or exceptional. Even the desserts - what appeared at a glance to be many options actually turned out to just be many trays of the same few items spread out over the tables. It was okay but not great. I appreciate that they were attempting to accommodate many guests, the entire ball room was set up with tables, but it was too much, in my opinion, for the servers to handle. The guy carving turkey just spent every free second looking at his watch. Our table server seemed overwhelmed and exhausted and we were there at the beginning of dinner. Hate to think of what he was like later in the evening.

    Plumeria Beach HouseResponded 7 days agoAloha! Appreciate you joining us. Apologies that the experience did not quite live up to your expecations. Your patronage and feedback are highly valued! Mahalo.

    For the money $500 for three people, this was the worst holiday buffet ever. The food was cold or the selections were out and you had to wait for hot food to arrive or take the whatever they had left which was cold. The carving station attendants were rude and were out of turkey except for the fat parts left. They didn’t serve any rolls or bread, no pumpkin pie and stuffing was horrible and cold as well. Never again.

    Plumeria Beach HouseResponded 7 days agoAloha, Gene! Our sincere apologies that you did have a great experience. Appreciate the candid feedback. Mahalo.

    Very basic Thanksgiving buffet. Disappointed there was no ham or any Hawaiian dishes available. Turkey was dry and cranberry sauce was limited and only available in front of turkey carving station. Crab legs were cold and served by meat carving person. Desserts were disappointing since no real pie or cake. All desserts had some type of cream except for snickerdoodle cookies which were dry. For $115/person plus tax and tip it was a disappointing meal. Also, we were seated in the ballroom after making reservations months ahead of time. It was loud and super breezy. Coffee was burnt and not good either.

    Much of the food items needed refilling whenever I was at the buffet and was left scraping the bottom of the dish or not available at all. This includes many vegetables, sashimi & creme anglaise. The line for the meat and seafood was long and unacceptable for the amount paid, surely another server could have been added to keep the line low. The ambiance of hundreds of people facing you while you were at the buffet was very odd. We were lucky to be in the room with a beach view but had extra tables and chairs set up around us multiple times while eating distracting us from our thanksgiving meal. My mum is on a walking stick much of the time and this was a lengthy walk to the buffet. Finally to arrive for your 2pm booking on time, you don’t expect that a 15minute wait is acceptable just to be seated. It was obvious that quantity of bookings rather than quantity of food or ambiance was a priority.

    My family spent our Thanksgiving morning at the Plumeria Beach House for the Thanksgiving buffet. The hosts were kind and prompt, our waiter was absolutely phenomenal, and the overall experience was lovely. The Thanksgiving buffet was pretty pricey per person, but the overall experience was well worth it. The food was good, and could have been better with a few more traditional Thanksgiving options. There was an abundance of other food options and variety’s to enjoy. After completing our meal we took a stroll outside to enjoy the dolphin area. The entire hotel is absolutely beautiful and hospitable. I can see my family enjoying our Thanksgiving at the Plumeria again next year.

    The venue is amazing. The outside tables and music was delightful. The food is way too expensive. We got the Pork Katsu for $32. which well there was plenty is was very dry and tasteless. No vegatables were served with it as well. The waiter was attentive at the beginning of service, however, after were were done, he was no where to be seen. Our plates stayed on our table for quite a long time. Then we had to "shag" him down for our check. Very dissatisfied and this was our first time there and we're locals.

    Our server, Julie, was one of the worse servers I’ve ever had at Plumeria Beach House. She wasn’t at all attentive and shouldn’t have left gratuity at all. I wanted to upgrade to Kahala Classic Coconut Cake from Chocolate Macadamia Tart of my Kahala Signature Bento, but she refused. As a returning guest and Kama’aina resident, I expected impeccable service. I left being impressed by Ken Morishige, Jock, Dean and Michaelle!
