Wonderful food and wonderful service in a nice open air setting
Enjoyed the evening with great service and a very delicious meal. It was a great way to enjoy our staycation in Waikiki.
I love coming here! Beautiful views and great food, excellent service. Valet parking is easy. The favorite dish by all in our group hands down was the blue crab bruschetta. Sunset views and city lights make for great photos, bring your camera!
Delicious food , small portions but was tasty , a little bit pricy
Outstanding venue for fresh fish appetizers and dinner selections. Our server, Kevin did a great job helping us decide on different appetizer and entrée options. Thanks Kevin for making our evening a memorable one.
Although the food menu was very limited, everything we ordered were delicious and high quality! Waitress was very friendly and accommodating. I would come back here again.
Amazing sushi, surf and turf and service! Will definitely come again. Highly recommend
When we first arrived, the restaurant had three families with many kids running around. However, they all soon left and the romantic environment soon took place and the rest of the time at the restaurant took place as written on the website. The hostess and waitress were extremely nice and welcoming and were the epitome of customer service excellent. The mai tais were the best I’ve ever drank and the food was great.
Amazing sushi. Beautiful location. A wonderful oasis in Honolulu.
Nice outdoor venue with good food. Hamachi was very fresh. Prices are reasonable for Waikiki.
Amazing service. 100% recommend. You will not regret! Amazing!!
Squid Ink Pasta had no flavor; accompanying seafood tasted frozen/not fresh. Tiger Shrimp nigiri was dry & bland. Tiger Roll was below average in taste and appearance. Gin martini was watery and was sent back. Sweet drinks were pretty good. Unagi & ikura nigiri were very good. Scallop appetizer was very good. Total came to $150 with tip. Left disappointed.
Sushi rolls and drinks were good, a little overpriced. The view was great. Unfortunately there were cockroaches crawling on the floor around our table, which ultimately ruin the great ambiance of the experience.
The sushi rolls are so good and the duck breast is very juicy. Yummy!
this restaurant had a nice selection of small plates that taste amazing
Eric was awesome!
We got a very good table. Big and in the open terrace. The waiters have been very kind. The rolls were absolutely good. We were quite disappointed with the wine list. Very short choice and too expensive. Very bad for such a restart!!
Awesome view, great view, and great service!
I had high expectations for this place. It had good reviews and was located at a great hotel.
Underwhelming , mediocre food at beat. Bartender couldn’t even make an old fashion. I hope they get things together because the location was good and it has potential. They are just not there yet.
We had a great experience. Food and service were good. Nice atmosphere.
Beautiful view, excellent friendly service, delicious food
Nice view and good seafood. Well prepared and served.
Enjoyed the evening throughout all the courses. Sean was an awesome server and he ended our ending with a Happy Birthday dessert for my husband. The ambience was perfect for my husband because he enjoys casual dining.
It was great to have a spectacular view of the fireworks. The music was fabulous.
There was some confusion about my “special request” for seating and it seemed it would be impossible to rectify given the restaurant was full. However, they managed to make us very happy. Special kudos to our waiter Todd who was a very good sport.
The food was amazing, creative, and visually pleasing. The service was excellent and the ambiance with the live music added much to the experience.
Excellent atmosphere with great food and good value. Very good happy hour with wonderful live music
Very poor service, ok food. It wasnt busy on valentine's day when we went so it seemed that the poor service was not warranted given how slow it was. You can review my yelp review for more detailed information.
Really enjoyed this place, definitely a nice place for live music and the firework show. The service was very chill we didn’t feel rushed or anxious the server we had was so kind and gave great suggestions. Will definitely return!
Surprised it was in a Trump hotel. Had we known that, we would have picked another restaurant. But, the view was great and food excellent. Expensive, but very tasty.
Great food, loved the happy hour!
We were surprised at the reasonable prices and good quality of the food.
Excellent location. Open air setting. Great seafood. Very professional staff.
We took some customers for a relaxed meal and everyone enjoyed it very much. The food was excellent and the ambience very relaxing. Our waitress was lovely but on occasions the service was a little slow, but it didn’t spoil the evening.
We thought we would try the Trump Hotel’s restaurant after we were informed about the 4 hour free valet parking. Turns out happy hour prices and food were AMAZING! Best hot wings I’ve ever had and the shrimp salad w/house made dressing was tasty and huge (for only $10)! We were only in Hawaii for a week but we came back 2 more times because the service was OFF THE CHARTS! Upon arrival, the first time with my sister in law who is blind, the valets helped her as if she was their relative seeing to it she was gently placed from the car to her wheelchair. At the restaurant, the hostess was equally as accommodating, moving chairs so her wheelchair could make it to the table they had for us...all with no prompting from us...they just went into action without a word. This was just one of many examples. Our second time there, we brought a larger group and I ordered the crab legs after asking if they were cut in such a way to make it easy to de-shell. The waiter explained they were not cut horizontally length-wise but that it should not be too bad to de-shell. I still wanted them so I ordered BUT when they came, ALL THE CRAB was de-shelled by the chef at the waiters request for me! My husband and I were astounded! NEVER had we had a restaurant do this!! They under promise and over deliver!!! What a treat! Hope the waiter enjoyed his large tip and we will always seek out Trump Hotels because THEY KNOW HOSPITALITY LIKE NO OTHER! You can tell instantly that excellence must be rewarded by whoever is in charge! Everyone is kind, competent, attentive, and sees what needs to be done AND DOES IT! Trump and his family are geniuses! 4 hour free valet?? (Unheard of in Waikiki!) But they must know that we will tip the valets more (valets happy) and more business at the restaurants (more business, more revenue and more tips for employees)! PURE GENIUS!!! Loved our experience! Was one of the highlights of our trip!!
Just ok. Not much else to say
