We went on a Monday night to try the 1/2 price entrees at dinner with friends. The service was friendly and fast. The menu was a little confusing, because the vegetable of the day doesn't really come with every entree choice. I was looking forward to trying "broccolini" but received an ear of corn instead. The server offered to take... More

This place was really good. We only tried b/c of the the 1/2 price entree special but ended up being happily surprised. I had the off the bone short rib which was really good. My wife had the pork belly which was excellent, if you like pork belly, which we love. Service was great. The bread was just ok. It... More

Daily half price drink specials, good service, nice menu. $20 lobster night was awesome. Buffet night with prime rib and King crab legs/claws also a great value. Service a bit slow at the high season, with every table full. No problem though, because who want to rush during sunset in Hawaii!

We have had dinner a few times at the Hawaii Calls restaurant in the Marriott Hotel recently and were very pleased. Delicious food, wonderful ambience and great service! The Caesar salad was crisp and seasoned perfectly. The macadamia nut crusted Mahi Mahi was superb! The crust was crispy and the fish was cooked perfectly! Delicious! And the desserts! The pineapple... More

This restaurant is ok - everything in Hawaii is expensive, so I can't complain about price. It's comparable to other restaurants. Food is ok, service is fine. View is lovely, especially at sunset. Breakfast was always hearty and yummy - I did a la carte breakfast everyday and it was great. No complaints, but no accolades either. Only restaurant at... More

Food is unremarkable but expensive. Even happy hour appetizers not worth the price. $7 for four tiny cocktail "jumbo" shrimp. Overly greasy calamari with what looked like frozen mozzarella sticks. Best thing was the pupu platter with the summer rolls and sushi pockets. Best service was at the bar. Drinks are decent but expensive, beer is the most affordable.

We were promptly served and we never had an empty glass until we were ready to check-in. No for the not so good...Sunday is there lobster special night which we decided to take... More

The reviews have not always been nice but I can say after two meals it is a good and convenient place to eat. On arrival we had a simple meal at the bar and our waitress was terrific. We liked it so much we asked for the recipe. Jenny went back to the kitchen an drought out the magic ingredient... More

In a lovely setting, this place offers many specials and discount nights. We have eaten here five times in recent weeks and each meal has been excellent and reasonably priced. Service is consistently good and the outside dining area is most pleasant. They offer the best deals we have found in this area.
