The waiting time for the first drink was 25 minutes. Then the sirloin steak we received was full of grizzle but more than that it smelt and tasted off.

A few bites and confirmation from my partner we both confirmed the steak was foul tasting and had a rancid taste.

The waiter was no where to be found to complain and when the check arrived we were so disgusted with the experience we paid up and left.

NY Eve Dinner. Crowded, busy, loud. Got sat right away. Then proceeded to sit 5+ minutes without being greeted or given water. Waiter dropped menus off without so much as a word. After more than 10 minutes, waiter said “give me 45 seconds”. 2-3 minutes later he walked up all cutesy and proud of himself saying “43, 44, 45”. Any restaurant charging the obscene Waikiki tourist prices they do, should be able to provide a warm greeting within 1-2 minutes of being sat. Service somewhat improved from the very rocky start, but not enough to make up for the rude indifference. After finishing our food, our plates sat in front of us for 5-10 minutes. I did the unthinkable - I started stacking them because I don’t want to look at food remnants when my meal is finished. A manager finally noticed and cleared the table. The food is pretty good, not great. Truly jumbo sized shrimp! But a little rubbery. Giant portion of steamed asparagus, but undercooked. Steak was tasty, though I am not quite sure I’d call it rare as we ordered it. Food runner even looked a little nervous dropping it off, but I reassured him at least the center looked red and we’d be okay. He visibly sighed with relief. We ordered a nice bottle of Turley Juvenile, mark-up was pretty insane (2.75x retail), but tolerable if you are reviewing the level of service you’d expect from Wolfgang’s. We did not. Super disappointed locals who will leave Wolfgang’s for the tourists. You would have thought they’d want to win over Kama’aina with the current tourism numbers, but maybe their pockets are deep.

Steak was severely undercooked (asked for medium, it came nearly raw inside), took 15 minutes until a bartender took my order (after I had reserved a table and filled out contact tracing forms) - my waiter was oblivious and didn’t approach my table until after 20 minutes. He didn’t check on my experience with the food, brought out plain instead of garlic mashed potatoes like I had ordered. The tap water was extremely full of fluoride and tasted like it came out of the ocean (I’ve dined at other restaurants in the vicinity that had completely normal tasting tap water).When handing me the check, he said sarcastically “thanks for dealing with us.” This was hands-down the worst steak and steakhouse experience I’ve ever had at this level.

Rating would be 0/5 if available. My wife and I eat out 5-6 days a week, so have a fair tolerance for when things don’t go just right. We ate here for Christmas dinner and scheduled plenty in advance, knowing it’s a busy day. We had an 8PM reservation and arrive at about 7:50. When we arrived at the host stand, the restaurant was empty inside and there was a large crowd standing outside. I told the hostess reservation for my name. She then asked do you have a reservation. I repeated reservation for my name. She then said great, what is your name for the reservation? After a third time of explaining she said it will just be a few minutes. We waited over 30 minutes and were eventually told they had violated COVID distancing protocols the night before and could not open until 24 hours from the time of the violation at 8:22 the night before. They announced at 8:25 that people could begin coming in, with no names called or system to process the large crowd outside. It was a mad rush to get it. We eventually made it to our seats and got settled a bit after 8:30. The servers were nice and tried their best to get things on track. Bottle of wine ordered was a 2015 and a 2017 came without notice they didn’t have the vintage we ordered. We didn’t complain and rolled with it. We ordered our steak medium plus and it came rare to medium, with only outside pieces being able for my wife to consume. The hot plates that normally comes to help cook to your own liking don’t exist since the plates were cold by the time the steak made it. We didn’t complain. Finally we were about half way done with our bottle of wine and were told last call is at 10PM so order if we wanted anything else. We ordered two port wines to have with desert and took our time to start on the rest of the wine. Someone then came by to take our two full glasses of wine from the bottle as well as the two port wine glasses that hit the table 5 minutes before. What a disaster!!!!!!!!

Even though we had a reservation for Christmas Eve dinner they didn’t respect our table, the say they had issues because they didn’t respect the social distance requirement and authorities shut them down, the restaurant wall full but they wasn’t supposed to accept any additional customer... didn’t give us any extra explanation about or try to compensate at all... just let my wife and I with out a Christmas Eve dinner in our honeymoon... terrible experience...

Giving this my worst review since we were denied entry when we made a reservation. The reason was because something about the alcohol administration setting a curfew (30 mins after our reservation) and the way they explained it was nonchalant. I don’t mind adhering to the rules but it would have been nice to get a communication about it PRIOR to arriving.

Food was terrible. Had the seafood appetizer , lobster mac n cheese, german potatoes, sauteed broccoli. It was barely above cafeteria standards. I'm very surprised. My first time eating here and the food preparation quality was way below the price point. I know I didn't eat the meat, but the sides have to be up to par too. On meat - my friend got the lamb chop and it was clear that it was very raw, not a medium rare. Clearly the food preparation techniques aren't there.

It was a fair experience because the waitstaff did a very poor job. It was a busy evening, however when paying the prices for dining out, I expect a high level of service. The waiter had no time to explain certain items on the menu or properly advice us on proportions. We had way too much food for 3 petite women and it took a very long time to receive our meal.
I've been to Wolfgang's on 4 occasions before, this might have been my last!

Restaurant was chaotic and very crowded, almost all the tables were full and none were socially distanced. It was Christmas Eve and instead of showing restraint and limiting reservations it looked like they tried to pack as many people as they could. It appeared no different than before the corona virus. Food was quite good and service was a bit lax but decent, despite the kitchen being a bit slow. However, considering how crowded it was, packed with people despite how they should have distanced all of us... I will probably not return.

The seating in the front of the restaurant was socially distant but they took us to the back which was not. We were a party of four and the wanted to sit us at a table jammed into a corner where we could literally touch the party next to us. We asked for a different table and the hostess said the other table was for reservations and I told her we had a reservation she just looked at me confused and said she’d go check. She came back and said follow me back to the front which we did. A manager showed us to our table which was socially distant and we sat down. He said thanks for understanding. Our servers were excellent and the steaks were good. The sauce on the fish was mucky but other than that it was a good meal. We live on island and always celebrate dinner out during the holidays but we feel Hy’s Steakhouse is a better value and experience

There was no social distancing between tables. I was literally sitting a foot away from the next table. I would take a picture but I don't want to make the other person on the table feel uneasy. We would ask to move but all of the tables were taken. Looks like this steakhouse only wants to make the money and not care about safety for their customers. It is so loud with people over talking each other. This is the loudest steakhouse I ever been at. The chopped salad was ok but I don't think it was worth $15.00. The filet mignon had no taste and the sauce to did it in was very salty. The asparagus was under cooked at the stalk end and they left the white part on instead of cutting it off. Waiters did not come around to ask if everything was ok. Won't be coming back again!! So sad. Wanted to have a great anniversary dinner. O well.

Christmas eve dinner experience was very poor, even in mind that the night would be busy.
1. After seated and provided menu and bread, after no service for 30 minutes decided to ask for service through the hostess. Service came after another 15 minutes.

2. Crab cake taste was good, but had shell in it and my wife had to cough it out.

3. Ordered medium rare rib eye steak, was served medium well steak with a medium rare tab on the top. Didn't have them redo it due the the slow service.

4. Ordered red wine with the steak, but told me they were out of what I ordered 90 minutes after, provided me with a wine menu but never had the chance to order until dessert, which doesn't make sense.

5. Requested a straw 4 times to finally receive one, once when seated, second time when ordering food, third when meal delivered, last when ordering dessert.

6. The check had an extra order of rice (which we didn't order, the table next to us did), which took approximately 30 minutes to correct and pay.

The waiters tried to help each other with the busy night, I have 3 different people serving me, but still with a $200+ price tag dinner, the experience was unpleasant.

One of the worst steakhouses I’ve ever been to. They moved my plate out from under me while I was eating, moved my personal belongings without asking and attempted to take away my dinner multiple times while I was still working on it. The food was pretty bad as well.

We enjoyed lunch at Wolfgang's a few days ago - we are so happy the restaurant is open again and loved the outdoor garden seating until the mall construction noise drove us inside (temp situation). Our service provider was exceptional and really made our time at Wolfgang's a wonderful experience. I had salad with petit filet - it was outstanding. The meat was out of this world, and the side of bernaise was a brilliant suggestion by our server. My husband had the fish and chips which was also delicious, but after too much Italian bread and butter and yummy signature fresh potato chips, my husbands appetitive couldn't stand up to the richness of the fried food - so recommend you leave your belly empty until this plate is served ;-). We can't wait to return to our long time fave, go-to restaurant option for Happy Hour. Thanks to the fabulous service team!
