Showed up for our reservation and the restaurant had closed down at some point in the past few weeks. Not sure how long but based on the debris on the patio it had been awhile. They at least could have shut off their reservations before they closed.
Open tabke you need to update your site. This place is closed
We love the Nook. The food is always amazing. The service is always warm, friendly, and excellent. The place is charming and inviting. So sad to see it close.
Our waitress was super friendly. Service was fast and the food was absolutely delicious. I ordered the chimichurri pulled pork eggs Benedict and the Nola cold brew. So yummy 😋
Amazing, as usual! Food, service and vibe is excellent! Would ALWAYS recommend this place!
The Nook is a hidden gem. I’ve been here a few times and tried different things each time. I’ve never not had a delicious food there. And they have very tasty drinks too!
This place is amazing. I am sorry to see it close.
This little place is tucked away and such a great treat! I love to bring friends & surprise them with this sweet oasis off University.
Great brunch as usual. Food was exceptional and on point!
Fabulous drinks and dishes delivered with aloha :)
Food was good, but the timing of the courses out to our table was extremely slow.
Food and service are always amazing. My go to spot for special dinners or yummy brunch dates!
AMAZING FOOD AND SERVICE!
This restaurant is our favorite and was disappointed when they no longer offered dinners a couple of years ago and only offered breakfast. However to open up for dinners on special occasions like valentine day weekend make it so extra special. Invited a couple of friends and could not stop raving about how excellent the food was. Everything is good.
GREAT outing for Valentines Day! The food was AWESOME; the service was spectacular; and the atmosphere was “on point”!!!
The Nook is a gem, both for breakfast and lunch and their special pop-up dinners such as this one for Valentine’s Day. The owners and staff are so personable, and chefs’ creations delicious and imaginative without fail.
Amazing special Valentine dinner. Every course was so creative, beautiful and delicious. Highly recommended!
We were welcomed at The Nook with warmth and professionalism. The eclectic and comfort-food filled menu satisfied everyone in our group with everyone wanting to try more but without the space left to eat another bite. We will have to return for round two and looking forward to it! Thank you very much!
We loved the food! We each had a five course meal and specialty drinks that were fabulous. The only downside was the service was very slow...we liked our server, she was helpful and friendly but it just took a long time to get our food and drinks. I think they make everything fresh and made to order so that may be why it took so long. Just don’t expect a quick meal! We also like that they allow dogs in their outdoor seating area. That’s a plus for us...we like to be around dogs, and for those that don’t, they can always eat inside...very quaint in there.
I think this is just the yummiest place. Never have had anything I didn’t love! Feels like the city!
The food is good overall, except the salad dressing is a bit salty.
We are regulars at The Nook. It is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant. The owners are really nice and put their hearts into the restaurant. We love it.
Great holiday dining experience and such creative cocktails!
The Nook is normally a breakfast/brunch/lunch insider hot spot with just over 20 seats inside and about the same outside-although outside is a parking lot and the restaurant literally behind another restaurant. We were first timers fortunate to have lucked into their Christmas dinner popup. Once you enter, we were transported into culinary heaven. Our gift was a complimentary prosecco infused with cinnamon and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. The menu offered options for carnivore and herbivore food and presentation lovers.
We opted after great debate for the candied yam soup topped with a meringue and duck breast decked with kabocha squash puree and a pumpkin flan that had notes of a gingerbread brulee.
Honestly, everything looked and smelled amazing that came out of the kitchen.
Kudos to the owners and their philosophy and talent! In their own words, The Nook is the brainchild of co-owners Anicea Campanale and Hailey Berkey, and promises to prepare delicious food and drink with integrity, in a fun and approachable atmosphere.
Their regular daytime menu has some refreshing takes on classic daytime food.
Keep checking for their popups!
Totally unpretentious and Totally Good. The menu is not huge, but it is wide-ranging and we cannot think of too many people who could not find delightful fare at The Nook. The staff is polite, efficient, knowledgeable, and attentive. The fish was fresh, the duck tasty, and the Kauai shrimp ono. It is well worth discovering.
Dinner at the Nook was the best meal we had during our stay in Honolulu, eating out 3 meals a day. I'm so glad we tried it, and we will make a point to visit again. Located near the University, it requires a car or a Lyft if you're staying in Waikiki, but this tiny restaurant is well worth the trip. On the night we were there, the fish of the day was mahi mahi which was prepared perfectly, tender and moist, served with mushrooms and watercress. This dish was a revelation - I've had mahi mahi many times but never fully appreciated it until I had it at the Nook. My pear and spinach salad was also perfect - dressed beautifully and large enough to share with two others. My dining companions enjoyed their dishes too - the brilliant combination of creole with risotto, the fritto misto that included okra and fresh fennel, and the house-made pasta which is out of this world and rivals ay I've had in Italy. Any of the pasta dishes will be sure to please. The creative beer selection was appreciated too. All in all, just a really great little restaurant that should not be missed on a trip to Honolulu.
This was my second visit to The Nook and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves both times! They have lots of unique and creative dishes and drinks to choose from. Highly recommend the polenta fries, gumbo risotto, and the mochi churro.
The Nook is as close to a perfect neighborhood restaurant as you can get. Fabulous food creatively prepared from local ingredients, good wine list that is fairly priced, attentive service, happy staff at all levels and nice atmosphere. Dinner at The Nook was the very best meal I had in a month-long food exploration trip on Oahu. I would praise the owners/chefs personally but did not inquire about names.
First time having dinner at the Nook and it did not disappoint! Had a nice Asian pear salad with wilted spinach, followed by the spicy Gumbo risotto. Both were very tasty. Will go back for additional dinner ventures as well as brunch.
Friends & I tried this place after a show at DHT. I heard good things about brunch but we were there for dinner & the ostrich burger was intriging. My friend ordered it & it surprisingly tasted like ch... nope! Beef! The large bird had red meat unlike how we expected poultry to be & you want to preferably order it medium-rare. It was good & so were the polenta fries dipped in a spicy aioli. My kobacha linguine was meh... but I’d like to come back for brunch.
I ordered the dishes that turned out to be surprises because the menu was just so creative! Delicious food, fresh salad, friendly and understanding wait staff. The air conditioning was good. We had a great time!
A hidden gem in the mist of the University neighborhood. Creative menu, small but inviting environment. Overall, an enjoyable evening out with good friends.
Decided to try dinner as I have enjoyed their breakfast fare.
The starter tempura peppers was a bit too exotic for me. The salad was generous and fresh, and finally the entrée of duck was very good.
Good place with innovative menu items featuring local ingredients. Good vegetarian selection for a mixed group vegetarian and non.
Amazing Food, friendly staff, pretty cool craft cocktails, what more can you ask for?
Everything about the knuckles perfect makes for the best date experience in Honolulu! Such good food, such good service, such good drinks, and such great ambiance.
Always fresh, tasty, creative dining with great cocktails
Wonderful little place with very creative, delicious food. Highly recommended!
The clams never disappoint. Enjoyable meal to celebrate a birthday or everyday dining!
