OpenTable Diner (Hawaii)

What a fantastic place! We came here for a special evening after it being recommended to us by our hotel concierge. We were worried about it being touristy but we were pleasantly surprised that it was not. Watch the sunset on the beach and make a reservation for 15 mins past the actual sunset and enjoy the stunning colors from the wraparound windows for at least another 30 mins more. We ordered pasta and king crab legs and both were excellent. I was pretty full after and my rule for desert is only if they have something I LOVE will I order desert. And they did. I ordered the berry cobbler and it was so good I came back alone the following night for not one, but two. (LOL). Both our servers were excellent, for dinner we had a gentleman who just had a baby boy (sorry I forgot his name!) and for my dessert I had a sweet brunette who was serving on the patio, I felt like she was my best friend. I’d go back again anytime.

Any dish including seafood is simply amazing. Just stay away from red meat based plates as they're overpriced and don't taste well

The matre d' (a female who wore a sweater tied around her waist) was rude and obnoxious and we complained to the manager and nothing happened. It pretty much ruined our experience.

Excellent food and service. We had a great table in a corner, with a view of the peer, which was beautiful in the evening. From our martinis, to California lobster tail, to desert, everything was Excellent!
