The service at Wai'Olu is above and beyond what would be expected at a Waikiki Hotel. As the wind picked up, there were shawls that were offered to guests in case they wanted one. Food was quite good. Since this is a more casual dining venue, I had not expected the quality of the food nor service at this restaurant. When coupled with a beautiful view of the skylines at sunset, this was a restaurant that we felt would be a place we should return to.

We enjoyed this restaurant so much. It is a great location and has excellent service. Be sure to make reservations ahead of time to get a Terrance table. If you’re there on a Friday night you can see the fireworks. The food and presentation was wonderful. we especially loved A whole page of nonalcoholic drinks which were delicious!

My wife and I shared the bouillabaisse for two. It was excellent, though,the fish in it was slightly overlooked. Their Mai Tai was excellent as advertised. Service was excellent and the premium seafood in the dish was outstanding

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.

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。
