Very nice setting. Great service. Attentive and friendly. Appetizer was excellent. Sorbet between courses was excellent! Special entree excellent taste and texture. Dessert was absolutely fabulous! All in all a great dining experience
We went to Stage for our Valentine’s Day date but the food was just okay. We usually come here for special occasions and Stage is our favorite place to eat, but for Valentine’s, the taste and portion of the food compared to the price was to me, not very worth it. Stage on a regular day is pricey but my boyfriend and I have no problem paying for a quality meal, and we rave so much about Stage to our friends. However for Valentine’s, the price was more expensive than their normal tasting menu, and the portions were smaller and the taste of everything was slightly overpowering. I will still come to Stage and we’re still loyal customers, but I’m a little apprehensive about going to Stage for special occasions now.
We had the special Valentine's tasting menu. Chef Ron and Pastry Chef Canan never cease to amaze with their creativity and taste.
Good food and great service in a bit of a weird environment. Your inside a furniture store! However it’s a beautiful space.
High quality Asian food done well
This was my first time at Stage. What a nice surprise. First, walking through the crowded Amuse
Wine Bar to enter the restaurant, it was apparent that this is a Honolulu Hot Spot. The much quieter Stage looks like a lighting showroom with a range of high end pendants over the tables. Service was attentive and informed. We were offered several tasty gifts from the chef as dinner proceeded. Food was EXCELLENT, and beautifully presented. I’ll be back.
We celebrated our anniversary here, the food was good and excellent service.
We had the tasting menu with wine pairings and was surprisingly incredible (I don't say that lightly). The wine, food and service were unmatched. I've had tasting menus at 5 star restaurants in LA and this matched at a lower price. Amazing.
Dusty and Wes continue to reinvent Stage, all to the good. Whereas the old Stage rarely changed its menu, the new Stage and Chef deGuzman regularly challenge themselves to innovate. The wine program has improved considerably, as has the attentive service. There is always a superb 5-course menu for $80 and excellent wine parings for $60, both deliver well beyond the cost.
I ate only appetizers and drank from a $50 card, sampling about 10 different varieties of wine. That was quite interesting, and i even could have sampled more varieties on my card, I just did not. The appetizers have a certain sameness to them. Individually, they are quite good, but when you sample 5 or six, you begin to see that they are all variants of the same basic formula. They are all quite rich and therefore, one reaches a saturation point where one more bite would be too much.
Always been my favorite eatery. I bought my sister there for her birthday and to buy a gift card. We were treated so royally from the start to finish. We each the tasting menu which was quite pricey but superb. They were even kind enough to make substitutions for us. The lobster item was soooo good. Also best pannacotta(?) I ever had!
First time eating here. Not disappointed. Food was very delicious and presentation was beautiful. Service was also impeccable! Looking forward to visiting again.
Decor was a bit too modern for me. For example handing lamps were a little above eye level. Good place for people watching. Overall good value considering the excellent food prep, great wine selection, amuse-bouche offerings & extra dessert treats.
The service was outstanding. Our server had wonderful recommendations for us. The pianist added to the ambience . Enjoyed his renditions of Reasons and Sara. :)
For me, I go to a restaurants to taste the food. Normally I order too much because I like to have a little bite of everything. I was so tempted to order the special of the night, which was the filet mignon, truffles, and foie gois, however I was encouraged by the knowledgeable staff to try the tasting menu. And it was to die for. The portions were huge and they were delicious. You really were able to see the chefs talents. The wine pairing was on point. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. The drink menu was incredible curated and themed. It felt like you were going into a speak easy or some hidden away jem. It was romantic and quiet so that conversations could be heard. This seems like one of Oahu’s tucked away unassuming best kept secrets. We will return.
Great service and food was fantastic!
Food was amazing. Service was exceptional. Will return soon.
Over the top unique setting. Great food with superb presentation. Onsite pastry/dessert chef with unique creations.
Wonderful food and service,. Don’t understand why it isn’t overwhelmed with customers. Stage is fantastic:
Everything was awesome and I would highly recommend to anyone who has an appreciation for fine dining and open to adventurous wine tasting. Although it’s understandable that the view is fixated on the traffic outside, I believe the seating would be best if rotated to focus on the ambiance inside. The value is perfect, but I see an opportunity for repeat customers or a membership discount.
