In my opinion, this is absolutely the best restaurant in the Hawaiian Islands. Very expensive, but worth it. The wait staff is extremely well-trained and very personable, the wine (& somm) is splendid, and the food is creative. Nice dining ware in an elegantly understated room.

I cannot say enough good things about La Mer. The atmosphere was incredible and our table was right by the window with gorgeous views of the ocean. The service was incredible with seemingly everyone coming up to us and congratulating us on our marriage. The food was delicious and every course seemed methodically planned out. We left with new memories and cannot wait to visit La Mer again. Amazing!

Hands down the best steaks I’ve had at a restaurant so far. Our steaks were cooked to perfection, juicy, and well seasoned. We had the crab stuffed mushrooms and lobster Mac and cheese, which were also delicious, but we could take or leave the French fries (there’s much more interesting options anyways).

Foods are good and Service was perfect. You can get table just by the beach, but that means you will see many tourists watching you dining. Wine pairing was good for the price

Every single thing about this evening was fantastic. This was our first visit to this restaurant and they did not disappoint. It was my son's birthday and I requested both a booth and a nice view. We had both! Leo our waiter was phenomenal. He was a top notch waiter in every way. I felt he really gave us personal attention while not being overly attentive. He recommended both the Wagyu filet and Ahi entrees and both were excellent. We also ordered the goat cheese tartine as an appetizer and it was the perfect size and extremely tasty. The generous portion of both asparagus and truffle mashed potatoes were way more than enough. Even the rolls and butter were great. The wine was perfect temperature and the complimentary birthday dessert was a really nice ending to our meal. Leo offered to take a number of pictures which was greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend this spot and we would love to return on another trip to the island. We loved it!
