Contemporary American
"Local first, organic whenever possible, and with Aloha always" is the mantra upon which this unpretentious neighborhood bistro was founded. With a menu that changes daily to reflect the freshest market ingredients, Town features hand-cut pastas and gnocchi, slow-braised meats, fresh local seafood, a wine list of small artisan producers, and hand-crafted cocktails. Drawing inspiration from classic recipes of the Mediterranean, Town's cuisine is best described as Contemporary American with an Italian sensibility, where the ingredients are allowed to shine and nothing is wasted.

With bar and "dog-friendly" patio seating reserved for walk-in guests, the restaurant has become a favorite for casual impromptu dining as well as for special occasions. Town is located in hip Kaimuki, just minutes from Waikiki, and is loved by locals and visitors alike. Go to Town.

    I had one of most amazing dinners that I literally dreamt about the same night. I will really miss Town when it closes. As always, their gnocchi was to die for. I don’t even like or ever eat chicken and I couldn’t get over how fantastic the chicken tasted!!

    I understand that they are closing but this was not a good final experience. Our food took over an hour and a half to get to us. A Goan hour we asked when our food would be coming especially since everyone around us had gotten their food. We were told it was coming and there they were out of some of the things we ordered. Why were we not told that when we placed the order or shortly after. We think they forgot to put our order in but no one took responsibility. Food finally came and things we were old was sold out actually came out. I really wanted dessert but we just couldn’t wait anymore. We asked for the check and that took a while too so we went up to the bar to get it. It was overall a frustrating last dining experience.

    We've eaten at Town several times in the past, but this was definitely the best meal we've had there. The little amuse bouche offered by the chef were delicious, the ahi tartare scrumptious, and the Two Ladies pork excellent--crusty on the outside and tender inside. The staff was attentive but friendly. Our only complaint was that the music was a bit loud, making it difficult to converse at times. But we will definitely be back soon. SO GLAD that Town is surviving these hard times for restaurants in the COVID19 era.

    Their social distancing protocol is serious yet comfortably infused with TOWN culture. If you know you know. The Bartender is on point- try his fig leaf thingy... The food (trimmed down menu understandably) is back-to-basic TOWN comfort food favorites with updated interpretations. The winner is the 'new' chicken dish. You will not miss the original! Mahalo TOWN!

    Our welcome hostress was exception. She walked me to front of the restaurant showing me where I could park. She also came to our table and gave us some highlights of the restaurant. Food was very tasty and artisanal. Volume was only average in size and my son did not feel "full"....( I have 3 teens with me...) Pricing: It feels like $$$ (3 dollars sign and not 2) Ambience: nice and quiet. Service: our waitress was a nice lady I am sure...perhaps a warm smile could be kind .....

    Reading the menu before, it sounded great! But I was disappointed with the food. Whatever ragu is put on the gnocchi was oily and my gnocchi was SWIMMING in oil. The pork was dry. The polenta was also a little bland and swimming in oil. Overall disappointing

    We’ve been going to Town on each visit to Honolulu for over 20 some years. This time was very disappointing. The noise level was so high that we were unable to converse with each other and the server had to ask us to repeat ourselves. The restaurant was full and there were a couple of large parties. This could have been the reason for the slow service. Taking over ten minutes to get the check after asking for it was a bit much. I ordered the gnocchi in pesto with eggplant. I loved the pesto and the eggplant, not the gnocchi. That I will attribute to personal taste. My dining partner had the handcut pasta. I know what al dente pasta is and feel that her pasta just wasn’t cooked. The servers are all very pleasant. It just must not have been our night to go to Town.
