Ruscello - Nordstrom Ala Moana
Ruscello is located on the 3rd Floor.
Need to book at 2:15 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
It wasn’t bad, I just was expecting a raving experience and it was just OK. The waitress was good but seem to be focus on pushing the specials which I took and wasn’t blown away. With that being said I will give it another shot and judge from the collective experience.
My sandwich bread was overly charred. Sunday evening experience is not as good as lunch.
The food was delicious and the view was amazing!!
Enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Had a nice table in the back so it was quiet.
Our table had a sprinkling of tiny crumbs. Didn’t notice it at first and wonder if it was in the menus that she gave to us.
Our server and all staff were well trained and very pleasant, friendly. We had a simple salad and calamari to share. Entrees salmon and hubby had meatballs. Both were excellent. For dessert we had chocolate chip cookie with ice cream. It was a bit too sweet for my taste but enjoyed it.
We were pleased to get a booth. Thank you for honoring our request for a nice table! Will definitely be back soon!
Great food, attentive staff, overall good value. Will be back.
Camille did an excellent job. Fantastic service despite the Valentine's Day crowd.
your place never fails me, Been coming there ever since to opened. The desert special that night was a great ending
It was a pleasant experience with professional and friendly service. The food was quite good and enjoyable.
Great! Mahalo to Patrick!!!!
Service is always great and the view from the window or outside is spectacular! Crispy Brussels sprouts and tomato soup are a must!
Always a Great Experience! We'll be Back! Patrick was fantastic as always.
Chef's ahi special was hit on our table!
We got a great table by the window. Not very noisy and not top much traffic walking by. Service was good. Olivia did a wonderful job in making sure that we were well taken care of. She was exceptionally busy, but always made it back to us. Thank You
I ordered a cheeseburger and my kids ordered mac and cheese also chicken tenders. All entrees were made well. I liked the burger because it was big and tasty. Mac cheese was perfect.
Ruscello’s staff consistently provides quality food and exceptional service. I highly recommend them for any occasion!
We enjoyed our server, Trent, and his attention to detail as well as prompt service. Wonderful experience as always!
Our favorite place to dine.
Excellent, personable service. Variety, healthy food selection.
Ruscello is one of my favorite restaurants in Waikiki. The menu is ideal and the service is impeccable! You can either eat outside on the lanai or inside at tables or up at the bar. A great "local" eatery.
Overall it was a nice lunch- ahi was slightly over cooked, but otherwise an enjoyable lunch.
The hostesses are top-notch and our server NICOLE was a true professional. We always enjoy our meal and experience here.
Great! Per usual!
Thank you to Ruscello & to our server, Daxs, for wonderful food & excellent service! 😊
We always love coming to Ruscello. We often get the same server, I think his name is spelled Dazs? Anyway, he's wonderful. But so is every server we get, and the host is so friendly. The food of course has to be excellent or we wouldn't keep coming, and it is. Now if I could only get my friend to order something besides the salmon. She loves the salmon!
Meet friends for lunch
Our waiter was very pleasant (Patrick) and friendly to our friends from the U. K. Normally the food & service is exceptional but the manager(Ashley) working that day did a poor job when she was notified about a plastic tag in my ahi salad. She said sorry , didn’t even look at me, said she wouldn’t charge me for the dish & offered me a soup or something else ...I asked if I could have another drink, she smerked (sp) and took the plate away. Her apology was lacking and very insincere...nonetheless, she never came back & I didn’t get anything for the disgusting mistake (not even dessert).
I’ve been a loyal Nordstrom customer, and service in the store has always been excellent...I will not go back for another meal due to the poor service I received from the restaurant. I am a local resident and I plan to share this with all my colleagues & friends about this situation.
The service was great, from the time we entered till we finished. Got to our table right away. Our server was very accommodating. We could enjoy our meal; even with my grandson. An added surprise was the lion dance. My grandson enjoyed feeding the lion. It was a great Chinese New Year lunch.
I went to lunch with a friend. We shared a salad and a pizza. We got to sit outside on the deck. The food was great and so was the service.
Food is good and is served in a timely manor. The menu is a little pricy for what you get but Ruscello is a convenient spot if you are shopping at Ala Moana. One negative was that Nordstrom closed before the end our our meal so when we were done we had to be escorted to the mall level to exit the store, even if I was carrying my 60 pound son who fell asleep at dinner.
Our server Anya was very helpful, courteous, attentive, and friendly. My wife and I enjoyed our dining experience.
Nice view, good food.
I highly recommended this restaurant.
Ordered the Tofu Miso Salad which the menu says it comes with watercress, NONE in my salad. This is the second time I ordered it in the past few months and still no watercress. The server did not inform me of the missing item- so I was disappointed. That salad is usually my go-to salad - but not sure if I will order it next time. If they told me the watercress was not available, I would have ordered something else. Disappointed :(
Nicole is such a fun and wonderful server. SHE made the experience awesome
My experience was marred by the rude hostess who didn't make any effort to address my request for a table by the windows. Most restaurants would check for availability or ask if I would like to wait for next available. This hostess flatly said No.
I hope to return and next time I will request a table by the window when I make my reservation.
Having gotten that off my chest...we both enjoyed the quality of the food - especially house bread, lobster bisque, and croutons.
Three ladies spent three hours brunch to catch up. The food, Bloody Mary, and wine were good as usual. The server was attentive and helpful as usual. Love this place for weekday business lunch and also leisurely weekend brunch.
Initial reception has improved. Hostesses seem to be genuinely glad you came. Server was outstanding. Love their pork chop special.
It was great as usual
My wife and I come here often. We enjoy the view of the ocean and never left disappointed. The menu is small but food flavors s are big. The best part? Reasonable prices! Can't beat that in Oahu. Always a great place to bring friends and enjoy an evenings conversations. Will continue to recommend.
Usually have a pretty good experience, but for some reason, it was really busy and really noisey and our waitress wasn't very cheerful...I think sometimes unexpected busyness catches certain servers off guard and maybe it sets them in an "you're wasting my time and I have to get to the next table" mood.... it's just the feeling I got from the server
..she didn't say it like that, but her haste and lack of attention to us did make me inclined to tip less...but it won't stop me from going back!
