I had the Salmon Caesar salad. It was delicious.
The food was delicious and we were all full to the gills after our meal. We didn’t even have room for desserts.
We liked the location of this restaurant and all the friendly staff. Sadly, all the foods were not in good condition, especially the vegetables of our pasta and salad were all awfully old. Calamari was very delicious and spicy.
The restaurant was nearly full. Service friendly, but not attentive possibly because of shortage in manpower.
Food was good, but lack the "gotta come back here soon" flavors as before.
All food was fresh; none awesome or particularly memorable.
Not the Ruscello flavors of the past.
I have never had a disappointing meal at Ruscello.
Food was mediocre. Service was poor. Despite requesting starters then main, all of the food came out at once. Our food got cold. The waiter blamed the kitchen - although they were only at 60% capacity. He almost popped his eye out opening our champagne bottle. All the pasta was overlooked. Overrated, name branded mass produced food with not very good service. I wouldn't go back.
Excellent food and service. Beautiful view from tables inside and out. Highly recommended.
Luv’d everything morsel Brought my mother in law along, now it’s going to be her new go to when shopping
The food is the reason we enjoy eating at Ruscello.! We were not disappointed…
Staff was great. Came a little earlier than our reservation time and they were able to sit us sooner. The follow covid protocols. Highly recommend this place
Have dined at Ruscello at least 20 times for lunch. One of us always orders the chicken panko salad. The last two times we ordered it, the chicken had an off taste, as if it wasn't fresh. The salad was drenched in dressing that caused the greens to wilt and be soggy. The Coke I ordered was flat. They replaced it with another glass but it wasn't any better. The fries were so overdone they were like potato sticks. They shouldn't have been served to us. The avocado in our sandwich was totally brown. Something is not right in the kitchen.
The lobster bisque was a bit salty & peppery for me. The portobello raviolli was GREAT. Would highly recommend. Ate every bit of it.
The service is by far the best in Ala Moana if not Honolulu. Wait staff are very efficient and friendly. Also, the food is prepared so well and comes to the table at the perfect temperature and very quickly. The only thing is I do miss the bread they used to give for the meals.
Four of us stopped for lunch at Ruscello for the first time and returned a second time two days later because the food was so good! Each f us ordered something different and all were very pleased we what we got. The pasta dishes were outstanding and so was the lobster bisque. The desserts were just as outstanding as the meal.
Enjoyed dining at Ruscello with a dear friend & her sister. Food & setting were both good and we had a delightful, leisurely luncheon! Thank you!
Good food, good service, fair prices. Outside seating was occasionally noisy.
Always love eating here. The salads are terrific and the atmosphere is relaxed. Really nice place for lunch.
Service could have been more attentive. Steak was cooked medium well, not medium. Loved the potatoes, & he loved his turkey club.
Attentive staff, flavorful food, and outdoor seating! What else can we ask for? The lamb meatball grain bowl was excellent!
I made reservations a few weeks in advance through Open Table and we had the worst table close to the kitchen which was high in traffic!
Food was delicious
Area was socially distanced
Appearance is clean and fresh
Ordered the wild salmon entree which I’ve had on many other occasions. It’s usually cooked perfectly, however I was very disappointed last night as it was over cooked. It kind of ruined our night. Not sure when I’d go back there.
I've been here many times over the years have always found the food, service and ambiance to be great! I pretty much always get one of the salmon dishes and this time got the salmon and cauliflower. It was tasty, just a tad spicy for my palette but good nonetheless. The only thing I've noticed is the salmon is always a bit firmer than I care for. When I cook at home, my salmon is moist and tender so this one is a bit overcooked. But overall, I enjoyed m dinner.
We arrived at our reservation time at 5 pm and were seated immediately. It wasn't too busy so there was a nice ambiance. We ordered within 5-10 mins of sitting down and our food came in 5 minutes. The food was amazing as usual! Our faves are the plantation iced tea, cilantro lime chicken tacos, the crispy panko chicken salad, portabella mushroom ravioli, the white chocolate and raspberry bread pudding, creme bruelee and the kona coffee gelato. please NEVER take these off the menu. That's why I always come back! Never fails.
Tasty food, great service, seemingly COVID-safe space.
Fun place (great views) to have drinks and a nice bite to eat. Tomato soup was yummy!
Our reservation was at 11:00 a.m. Given that was the time the restaurant opened, we were caught in a long line of folks checking in and therefore were not seated until 11:15. Which is why I was a little offended when at 12:55 our party of two was approached by our server who informed us that there was another reservation for the table of 1:00 p.m., there is a two-hour time limit, and although the server was apologetic, essentially we were told, "your time is up, please leave." Given we were not seated until 11:15 through no fault of our own, it would have been nice to have been given the entire 2 hours for our seating. Perhaps the restaurant could start checking people in before 11:00 a.m., I was there well before the reservation time waiting for the place to open. Honestly, I will think twice about coming back now, the whole experience left a bad taste.
Nice outdoor seating facing Ala Moana Beach Park and sunset. Panko chicken salad was delicious with crispy fried chicken. Pumpkin cupcake was also very good with a little cream cheese frosting. Nice and quiet relaxed setting. Great Service and price.
This restaurant is a go to place to relax and enjoy good company. Everything was just wonderful, and perhaps the only thing that needed help was the soup. It was Barley and steak soup with one little cube of steak with lots of barley.The staff went back to the kitchen and checked and corrected the issue with the chef for all future servings.
Always great service! The yummy food is always on par and ambiance is super!
Great customer service
Always go there. Enjoy the food.
Food was excellent....waiter served us well. Overall enjoyable afternoon.
First time. Delicious and fresh! Shrimp salad as an entree was my favorite. Also enjoyed the chicken tacos, burrata, and chicken meatballs as apps.
Love the chicken tacos, the shell is so crunchy!
We had the specials—lamb gnocchi ragu and a lamb meatball grain bowl with lots of veggies. Both were excellent!
Neysa is the best server! So sweet and personable! Love her!!
The taste has changed…
I like before .
this is one of our favorite places to have a pleasant yummy dinner.
