We celebrated my husband’s 70th birthday with great friends. As always it was a fun time at Vino. When you look around you can see smiles at every table. Chuck and the staff make everyone feel so welcome.

Food and service excellent. The vegetables were especially delicious.

Awesome food you would never know that he received his accolades as the 1st sommelier in Hawai`i. He is just not the high makamaka type. My friends were also shocked at the price of dinner & wine.

If you are looking for a great evening which can be either casual or formal, as “you” can decide (rather than the restaurant), this is the place! The wine list and bar drinks are outstanding. The food is prepared exquisitely using local, small farm ingredients and can be served family-style or individual portioned, as “you” determine. The ABSOLUTE BEST to purchase a nice wine and casually navigate your way through the menu as your “guests and you” decide. If Chuck Fuyria (owner) is around, invite him recommend a wine or just talk story with your table - he will be both educational and entertaining and, if you have guests, they will readily see why this is the best dining “experience” in Hawaii.

We always walked past Vino on our way to Ekahi Ornish. We graduated last year, but dine together frequently to stay on track. Once I realized that Vino had a vegan menu I made a reservation. I had been to Vino several times before, but most of our group had not. We had a wonderful meal of Kale and pear salad, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, Hamakua mushrooms, golden beets, kabocha ravioli. It was reasonable at $27 per person including a 20% tip. I once read that Koreans wonder why the vegetables in American cooking are so boring. The vegetables aren't boring At Vino. They are delicious. We are Ekahi Ornish Cohort #110.

There are so many special pleasures to experience at Vino it is difficult to say which is most important. The friendly, professional and knowledgeable staff—from Owner Chuck Furuya, to welcoming Manager Anne to server Nate and all the way to Chef who checks in with you to see that you’re enjoying the food and evening. So many creative and exquisitely prepared dishes to taste and
share, you promise yourself you must return immediately before some specialty dish disappears! Pair the luscious dishes with a wine specifically chosen for you by Master Sommelier Furuya, and you’ll imagine yourself in a Michelin rated Italian Bistro in the Tuscan countryside! But surprise—you’ll awaken from your daydream in this lovely downtown Honolulu gastronomic venue. And you’ll vow to return again and again. And you will never be disappointed. Buon Appetito!

The staff is awesome! Our waitress was Tara and she was so nice and very attentive. We had a couple of toddlers and she was extremely helpful and brought their food out early so they wouldn't get noisy or bored. She had recommendations that were excellent. We even spoke to Ann, who was so knowledgeable about the wines and gave us great tips on the wines. I know how busy she is but she took the time to speak to us and not rush our wine selection. The food was great, as usual. This is my all time favorite restaurant!

Continued good service and good food. Most outstanding dish is the new york strip steak... as good as or better than Hy's. People are very friendly and if you need help making a wine selection, Chuck is ready to assist you, without any pressure or forcing a higher priced wine on you. We eat here everytime we're in Honolulu... twice this time.

Everything is great.
Including its bathroom. Very clean.
The lady waitress was very nice and professional.
If anything...maybe to turn down the music a little softer
We will definitely go again!!

Tried it on a whim and glad we did. Not sure I would call it a hidden secret as it appeared to have some regulars. Wish I hadn't waited so long to give the place a try. Don't make the same mistake. Go now!
