"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.

Surprisingly good!!

I went there for lunchtime. There were not so many people maybe 4 table are fill.
I was waiting food about 45minutes and server didn’t apologized. Every other table already had their food, so no reason we had to wait this long!
I was totally disappointed , also food was not so great. I’ve eaten here many times in the past but very disappointed this time. I won’t be going back!
I don’t recommend to my friends anymore....sorry you lost good customer!

Waitress a bit inattentive also picked up our desert before we were finished. Felt a bit rushed. Food delicious as always.

Town is solid with well prepared and creative cuisine. They do not rush you and we felt like we were dining in Europe. This is our go to restaurant when in Honolulu.

Town has been in it's current location for twelve years... this was our first visit. It was recommended by someone who lives on the island. The local farm to table concept works out well for this restaurant. The dishes we had were wonderful, our server was great, and having Jordan (Manager) share his passion for food was enjoyed by us both. We will definitely return to Town on our next visit!

Great local restaurant in Kaimuki. Across the street from Mud, Hen, Water and Superette - all Ed Kenney places. Features local ingredients and creative meals. Very enjoyable at a reasonable price.

Our food overall was disappointing. I used to eat here a lot and haven't returned in a while. The service was slow, our steak was hard, the appetizers were mediocre unfortunately. I don't think I'll be back again.

Food was good. Waiter was a little stand off-ish at first but was okay. Even though it was for my friend's birthday, they did NOTHING to help me acknowledge it which was very disappointing.

Sophia the waitress was the best part of the meal, really tremendous. Leek soup a bit expensive at $9, but was very good, the killer was the eggplant bread which cost $13 and came with only one piece of bread. The pasta was good, but over priced at $23 for what we received. Cut place, but not much value in the offerings, but as stated above. Sophia was a great waitress.

Food was well presented and tasty. Eggplant bruschetta had a great topping but the bread was very hard to bite or cut into. Goat cheese pancakes with lilikoi was delicous but portions were small. Gnocchi was excellent

Went for first time to try their pasta, but pasta maker broken. Had Penne pasta instead with same sauce: okay. Waitress was nice, but hadn’t brought bread until much later and only because we had to ask.

Food expectations were not met
Service was awful..waiter got order wrong and 6 of us were served food one by one.
Maitre D didn'teven acknowledge us and ignored us as we were leaving.
So not the good foos Honolulu experience we were told of.

A private chef recommended Town to us and we're glad she did. We sat outside and savored every bite. Highly recommended.

This is a neighborhood restaurant which has excellent food served by very friendly and helpful staff. They are very accommodating with food allergies and provide a great dining experience.

It was my first time and I will definitely go back again. The food was fresh, creative, and original. The portions looked small, but it was just right. They had a tasting menu that I would love to try on my next visit to Town. My friends and I had a great experience!

Had dinner here in March 2017 and loved the food so much that I booked a reservation from Canada before we left.The food was as exceptional as the last visit-the best meal we had in Honolulu.
The only comment I have to make is that it is extremely noisy and hard to hear anyone at the table unless they are sitting right next to you.Definitely not the place for a quiet,romantic evening.
But I will be back!

Our service was terrible - server had a real attitude. We waited 2 hours for our meal and were ready to leave and our meal was finally served. Talked to Manager and she complimented our meal, which was very nice, but we would not go back.

We were welcomed enthusiastically, seated promptly and were quickly off to a beautiful evening.
Our group tried the vegetarian plate, the pasta and the roasted chicken. Each meal received a rave review.
Our delight continued with the chocolate pretzel pie and the panna cotta desserts. A reasonable wine list and cocktail menu was available. The restaurant was full but the noise level still allowed pleasant conversation. My thanks to Cat for tying it all together for a perfect experience.

Town was the beginning. What I mean is that 6 years ago my wife and I move from NYC to Oahu, Hawaii. The only thing that was missing from our total package was the food scene. There was basically none. We were Wine Educators for over 30 years in NYC so food and wine were very important to us. Then we found Town. We felt that we were back in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The other night we had their hand cut pasta with pork and beef. Really an amazing bolognaise. As close to my wife’s as possible. The ultimate compliment. And to top it off you have multiple choices from their super wine list. A great staff adds to the Total Package.

We found the food to be delightful and tasted wonderful. My daughter had the Ulu and leek soup which was amazing. The eggplant bruschetta gave a whole new twist on using shisto peppers. The Ahi tartare was just the way you would wish it to be.
The entrees were also delicious. My husband got the fish of the day which was Mahi Mahi. He did not share much but the taste I got was perfect. I got the pork loin and the flavors were sublime with the portions right on. My daughter got the pasta and it was a lovely take on comfort food.
Our server was pleasant and very knowledgeable. We did not want for anything.
We were pleasantly surprised when the manager recognised us from eating at one of their other restaurant and came over to say hi. It made us feel like regulars even though this was our first trip to Hawaii.
If you are a foodie - this place is for you
