Poor service. No one came to greet us for what seemed like ages. Eating with littles deserves more not less attention. Had to ask for steak knives. MaiTais were delicious however.

Solo musician was very good. It was a breezy night and quite chilly. We should’ve been more prepared for the cold and worn jackets. Food was tasty and service was very good. We enjoyed our valentine’s dinner and will be back with friends to enjoy the experience

結婚式翌日の訪問でした。ちょうど金曜だったので、花火が見える席をお願いしていたのですが、結婚のお祝いまでしていただき、感激しました。
量も程よく、コストも頼んだ割にはそんなにしなかったのかな?と。 強いて言うなら、暖かい料理のはずが少し冷めていたことくらいですが、(多分花火のタイミングでサーブを止めていたのかしら?)冷めていても味はとても美味しかったので、また必ず訪問したい場所です。

Both appetizer and entree arrived cold. We were told the manger would come and speak to us. Her never did. The restaurant picked up the cost of the entrees but the evening was already spoiled by that point. Truth be told, I think there are better options elsewhere.

The Best thing about our experience was our server Britteny, who was prompt, courteous, and very attentive to our needs. When we mentioned the food was too salty, she offered to adjust our bill, and brought us two desserts on a complimentary basis when my wife and I could not decide which one to share. Also nice was that we were greeted and seated without having to wait.

Shortcomings I think would have to be the food which was much too salty. The Nishime that came with the dish I ordered appears to have been simmering in its shoyu broth too long, and my wife's King Crab seems to have been prepared without realizing the crab already contains a fair amount of salt coming from the sea. The sushi appetizer however was wonderful. Lastly, when booking through Open Table the indication was no times earlier than 8:15 pm were available. When we arrived at 7:50 pm however, it was not crowded and there seemed to be many tables available. I mention this because we normally do not like to eat late and would have appreciated an earlier booking time.

お肉はイマイチ。お魚は美味しい。お寿司も半額なのが嬉しいね。

Always five star service. Great kids menu, food that kids actually eat. Butterfish bento was great. Fish and chips was not good. Batter was soggy and oily. Prices on the higher end but that’s expected dining at the Trump. Server was great and gave my son a chocolate dessert for his birthday.

Husband and I went there for dinner. Had clam chowder, seafood dynamite, tuna roll and mussels. Food came quickly and were delicious. Drinks were much more reasonably priced than the hotels nearby. Waitstaff was friendly and courteous. Had none of the issues with either food or service that I had seen in other reviews of this restaurant. Beautiful view also of surrounding area. Highly recommend this place!

家内と息子夫婦で夕食に利用しました。18時からの予約でしたが、10分前にテーブルに案内されるとハッピーアワーのメニューが使えということで急ぎドリンクとアペタイザーをオーダーしました。トランプタワーの6階にあるワイキキの夕陽を望めるテラス席でラウンジバーで食事もしっかり取れるテーブル席でした。メインはロブスターにリゾット、ガーリックトーストを付けました。最後は息子夫婦の結婚記念日のディッシュがサプライズでふるまわれました。とても楽しい時間を過ごすことが出来ました。お値段も手頃でした。

2回目の訪問です。
今回もヒルトンの花火の金曜日に合わせて伺いました。
落ち着いた雰囲気の店内、開放的なテラス席どちらもおすすめですが、花火がよく見えるテラス席に案内していただきました。
今回オーダーしたお料理は生牡蠣、アヒのたたき、グリルソーセージ、ロブスター、トリュフ塩でいただくフライドポテト。どれも美味しくいただきました。特に生牡蠣、小ぶりですが甘みがあり濃厚。新鮮で美味しかったです。
ロブスター、調理方法が選べます。
(スチーム、グリル、etc)
スチームにして正解。ロブスターの甘みが感じられ食べ応えがあり大満足でした。

Went for my brother in laws birthday. Great food service and view. My Pau Hana cocktail was weak- too much ice or mixed in water but other than that the food was great and so was the house wine. A bit pricey but to be expected for Waikiki I would recommend it and would return again.

金曜日の夜19時に予約しました。
ヒルトンの花火を見るのが目的でした。
テラス席からの眺めは最高でした。
知人に花火を観ながら食事をするのなら
絶対ココ!とオススメしたいぐらい最高です。
料理の提供スピードも文句無しに早いですし
新鮮なハワイ産生牡蠣、特大ロブスターも絶品です。
ロブスターが$30ぐらいなのですが絶対に頼むべきです!
お寿司も日本人が満足できるクオリティでした。

The menu available online was not the menu when we arrived- the actual menu is significantly more expensive and not appealing. This restaurant is also on the 6th floor of the Trump hotel. We ended up leaving before the meal because we refuse to put money into the pocket of an unethical man.

トランプに宿泊していたので、ヒルトンの花火を見たかったために合わせて予約しました。
夫と1歳の子供と3人での利用です。
他にも子連れの方が居たり、生演奏で少し賑わっていたので安心しました。
席はテラス席でとても開放感があり気持ちよかったです。
お料理も美味しかったですよ〜!

その時は半分程日本人が居て、日本語のメニューもあり、店員さんもこちらの言いたい事を汲み取ってくれるので安心しました。
人によっては業務的で愛想がなくサラッとしてる店員さんもいるので、その点が少し残念でした。
