My wife and I had a fantastic meal at Ohana a few months ago. Everything from the warm bread to the appetizers, and on to the main course was creative, delicious, and beautifully presented! I didn't care all that much for the decor, but you don't eat the walls! The food more than made up for that. This restaurant is... More

We had a lovely evening at Ohana, along with another couple. Our reservation was for 5:30 p.m. and when we arrived we were seated promptly and with kindness. We liked the seating in the back of the house because it was somewhat quieter (the bar is at the front). The wait staff were efficient and kind, but I would say... More

Having been to Ohana numerous times, we thought it was time we placed a review. Pluses: THE FOOD. There's nothing like this anywhere within 35 miles (distance to Boston). The drinks at the bar are very good also. Minuses: the table service continues to be average to poor. They desperately need professional help here. The prices are not cheap (entrees... More

As one who appreciates fine food, you know that there is significant preparation that goes into all dishes, especially the chocolate souffle.

We found Ohana almost by accident, and were wowed by the freshness and tastiness of the food. Enx was trained by Roy Yamaguchi and the Asian fusion influences show. We had the two mixed platters, which would have been a challenge had not the flavours been so extraordinary. Highspots were the braised ribs and the grilled sushi. A delightful contrast... More

My wife and I and two friends ate at Ohana last night. The food quality and presentation was excellent. We have eaten at Ohana many times and are mystified why the restaurant hasn't been a smash hit. The service can be shaky at times but they always deliver on great food. The food is reasonably priced for fine dining in... More

We are summer cruisers and stop in Gloucester on the way to and from Maine. We tried Ohana last year and found the food delicious and really good. We are happy to report that the wait staff has much improved, to match the level of the food.

Ming Tsai, watch out.... Here's your competition! This is the kind of place you would expect to find in NYC. The meals were creations, each one clearly made with care and precision. We went as a family, with the youngest a typical "kid" eater who doesn't like fancy or flavorful food. Keeping that in mind, the chef took care to... More

Went to Ohana for dinner last night. As always the dinner was excellent. For appetizers we shared the Chicken Spring rolls with a sweet & mildly spicy dipping sauce; pan crisp ricotta gnocchi with wild mushrooms,haricot vert, prosciutto and fonduta was superb; and tempura cape ann lobster sushi roll with homemade sauces. Wonderful. Dinner was delicious. The mahi mahi was... More

My family and I were blown away by the creative, succulent fare. Each dish offered unique combinations of flavor and ingredients and everything was fresh, tasty and very well proportioned. And not to be missed - their pastry chef [who was given advance notice of our arrival] made an incredible yellow birthday cake w/ a peanut butter and chocolate frosting.... More

My wife and I enjoyed dinner at Ohana's this weekend. We had a delightful experience. The wait staff was friendly. Our server, Nicole was extremely knowledgeable about the menu. We had lots of question because of the many choices. My wife had 2 appetizers for dinner. The first was Foie Gras Nigri...outstanding. Next she had the shrimp and asparagus crepe.... More
