As usual the great Tommy Bahama experience. Only surprise was that we were sat at a table right next to another even though the restaurant was fairly empty due to Corona-19. Would have preferred more distance between tables.

We celebrated a dear friend’s birthday. The food and service was simply outstanding. My wife and I have made this a regular spot every time we visit Honolulu. Always a wonderful experience.

Super waitress, food, ambiance and meal presentation. Excellent menu choices. A large loud crowd some 30 feet away, drinking and partying, somewhat made for a less than pleasurable experience but that was not the fault of the restaurant. Overall, we had a great meal and would certainly return.

The food was top notch. We had a shrimp scallops dish that exploded with flavor. I had the chicken tortilla soup which was outstanding and my husband has a blue crab soup that was very good. We loved the atmosphere- very open with high ceilings and decorated perfectly. Our server was excellent! Go if you can!

新婚旅行で1周年の結婚記念日のディナーに利用させていただきました。
日本語は通じなかったですが日本語メニューがありがたかったです。
料理とサービスは可もなく不可もなくでしたが、テラスのソファー席の雰囲気が最高でした!

I love this place. The ambiance is very nice, a nice romantic roof top setting with two fireplaces. The service was outstanding, the food was magnificent. I had a Ribeye and Wedge salad, that were perfect to my taste. The ahi poke appetizer was simply amazing. I highly recommend this to any and all.

All our food from the appetizers of goat cheese and crab cakes, the wedge salad, the rib eye and salmon to the chocolate cheesecake dessert were excellent. Our server, Tyler, was superb.

We have eaten here several times on our visits to Oahu and everything was excellent as always. I was pleasantly surprised that the steak salad I usually enjoy for lunch was now on the dinner menu. Unfortunately, we were too full for dessert so that will be another’s visit! Can’t not have pineapple Creme brûlée and pina colada cake before heading home!

Avoid going Thursdays where they, as the manager from Italy puts it, “we rotate them(staff) around. As regulars, Phillip remembers our drinks before we even need to ask but on Thursdays, he is “rotated” to floor 3.
The hostess on this day was busy texting on her phone as we approached and was put off by us asking her to place a drink order(a hot day and we needed hydration). She said, “I’m not your server”but grumpily said she would get our drinks. It is beneath her to assist the waiter who is run off his feet assisting customers? She basically pounded our drinks onto the table. She said, “if you want more ice, I guess I could ask the bartender (she had placed two melted ice cubes in my glass).
The manager from Italy fluttered around not doing anything and when we asked about Philip, he shrugged it off and said that they rotatated “them” around. I did notice that he had time to stand around and chat with the hostess with delusions of grandeur. It was like visiting the Adam’s family on floor 2 that day.

It was my birthday so I had high hopes. I had to send back the crab bisque. It was so thick it stuck to the spoon and more of a paste than a soup. Also ordered the smoked ahi dip and requested some cucumbers with it (as I’m gluten-free). They did not include the lavash chips that were supposed to come with it for the other guest. I also got a chop-style salad, which was just ok. At the end of the meal, the server brought complimentary birthday cake, however I’m gluten-free (which I mentioned to him) and I couldn’t eat it! My guest enjoyed it. We were seated in a back corner and the server was very absent. We sat long periods of time looking around for a server. The bill ended up being about $100 and all I ended up eating was cucumbers & dip and a salad. I would not go here again or recommend it.

We would not go back. Food was mediocre at best. Ordered a bottle of wine and server brought us a sample. We did appreciate him doing that because wine was horrible. We changed to an $80.00 bottle. Didn’t receive bottle until dinner was almost finished. Overall worst meal in Hawaii. Resort pool service was better.

We found the food, service and ambience lacklustre and lacking attention to detail. The wines were quite expensive for what they were.
Unfortunately we believe you can get better food and value for money elsewhere.

Had reservation but still had a 20 minute wait for bar seating even though reserved standard seating. Noisy area. Once seated another 15 minutes for water with an expectation of a decision on entrees. It was a weeknight. Food was good. Go in ready for a wait with a bottle water and you'll be ok. Server, once available, was pretty good.

We loved our food. The service was great and the location was wonderful. I recommend sitting on the rooftop patio although it can get windy. Our server was great and very personable. Hawaii is generally expensive but feel it was over priced.
