Enjoyable and delicious

We went here using a groupon. We enjoyed our meal which had an Hawaiian flare. We will go back after we explore more options.

We came here for our wedding anniversary dinner, and were surprised to find it quiet (even for off-season), given the food was delicious (a pre-fixe menu) and artfully presented! We are definitely planning to go back for more dinners. Having been to Hawaii previously on a vacation, we were delighted with the Hawaiian fusion-themed meals the chef (and co-owner) created.

We went there twice, with two different couples and both times we were blown away by the food and were puzzled by the lack of crowds. The food is so creative, imaginative, sophisticated and delicious! The Hawaiian chef/owner melds such wonderful flavors and ingredients together. Last night I had a very dressed up avocado maki and their signature butterfish (black... More

The food and drinks at Ohana were delicious but the restaurant has a very strange atmosphere. I've walked by the place a ton of times and looking in it always looks closed. I've never seen anyone sitting at the bar or at the tables on the Main St. side. When I finally went there for dinner I understood why. The... More

If this resturant was in NYC,Boston etc., you would't be able to get in with out a reservation a month ahead. I could not believe there were so few here when we went.

Had a great meal here. I was pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant of this quality in Gloucester (great seafood, of course is here). The flavors were noteworthy, the presentation great, and the service exceptional.

You wouldn't know it from the street view, this is an excellent restaurant that seems hidden away. The backroom is very nicely done over, the service outstanding, the food awesome. Short ribs appetizer not to be missed. Lobster penne was just perfect, if just a bit heavy. Kalbi beef dish delicious, with loads to take home and enjoy tomorrow. Bummer...no... More
