The restaurant was beautiful and the food fantastic. They made the birthday celebration so special! The pianist was amazing. Of course the service over the top! I would go back in a heartbeat!

We ate the 5 course meal and the timing for each dish was off and inconsistent with the wine. Other than that, the food and the wine sommelier was more than exceptional

We went to Stage to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The food is always great there —from presentation to the taste. Service is excellent and the staff always conveys what is brought to the table so you’re informed what you’re eating.
The only downfall with this restaurant is their chairs. I’m under five feet so even with heels Ono was tippy —toey to sit comfortably in my chair—ended up with a backache the next morning. Maybe I should I asked for another chair or table but it was a busy night so I didn’t bother and jus enjoyed the awesome meal.

We took our sister and niece who were visiting from LA to the Stage Restaurant last Saturday evening for dinner. Our party enjoyed the food very much except for the very slow service. From time we ordered, our table waited almost one and half hours before the waiter brought our our entrees. We just can’t understand why it takes so long to bring out the food. We have eaten at Stage Restaurant many times through the years and the one complaint we have every time is the slow service. We like the food much but are discourage from booking there because of the slow service. Last Saturday was longest we waited. Our reservation was at 6 pm and it was close to 8:00 before getting our food.

Food and service were excellent. We did wait a bit between appetizers and entrees, however, our wait staff compensated by providing excellent service.

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 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.
