    Love this restaurant. We ALWAYS eat here at least once while we are at Hilton Hawaiian Village. After eating, we went to the bar and spent over an hour there, visiting with other patrons, as well as the bartenders. Love the Aloha atmosphere

    Tournament we arrived at the table the server Whitney can let us have a minute to look at the menu she wanted our order. I know we arrived near the end of lunch service, but still we still have a half an hour to order.

    Maybe not necessary the restaurants fault. But they put me in my date next to this big family with a bunch of kids running around like really couldn’t have moved us somewhere else? It was annoying, at one point the kids were bumping into our chairs and their parents could careless… ruined the whole dinner, as this was our last night in Waikiki.

    We were on time for our reservation. However the host staff were engaged in conversation with another guest about making reservations himself. When we finally got to the hostess it was 15 minutes past our reservation time, which she obviously saw us. However, due to their long conversation she stated we were late and had to beg wait listed. When we argued the point. She called a manager. Once the point was made. We were finally seated.

    I wish the mai tais had pineapple at the side like other restaurants. Excellent service by the male servers. The poke nachos were not that good. The poke appetizer that they used to have with just poke was very good. Coconut shrimp are good. The seafood medley was good. I had it twice but not much seafood for the price. The Prime rib is good. The calamari was very good.

    Great location; disappointing gristle Kalbi ribs as I had better at Sea Life Park the day before. Our server didn’t provide the usual Hilton attentiveness or care; didn’t even ask if we wanted any drink refills or to see the dessert menu. Will not be going back there again, especially at the price charged.

    Drinks were very good! We loved the Kalua Pork Nachos in the past and ordered them again this time, but instead of melted cheese they had a cheese sauce which wasn't very good. I miss the way they used to serve it!

    The food is overrated. So many people posted photos and exciting reviews. We visited Hula Grill which was much better and better prices. The staff is courteous and professional. Food is way overpriced and not as good quality as Hula Grill

    My family and I showed up for our reservation and the hostess staff informed us that they don’t actually take reservations from Open Table. We were left with the option of waiting in the 1 hour line or finding another dining option; we did the later and were very happy. We dine at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse and had a lovely dinner.
