We were surprised and delighted to experience our first Farm to Table gourmet dinner with Kauai ONO. This five course meal under a beautiful white sail in a park on a balmy fall evening in Hanalei was one of our favorite meals. Justin Smith, Chef, has a unique talent for combining the flavors of the island. The staff presents each... More

I have been wanting to try Kauai Ono based on many friends of mine telling me to try it. This trip I had a great excuse as we came for a friend's birthday. ( I told them it was her birthday via text but no mention of it at the table) We made reservations for a Thursday night but they... More

Decided to try Kauai Ono based on the numerous good reviews on Trip Advisor and elsewhere. I made our reservation on line a couple of weeks before our trip as they are only operating 2 nights a week (On Yelp....you have to leave a credit card to hold it...if you don't cancel within a certain time frame you will be...

Our first night on Kauai, we went to dinner at Kauai Ono. My husband and I are very familiar with chefs tasting menus and often enjoy that type of experience when we travel. We arrived on time and brought our bug spray as other reviewers had posted it was a necessity. It was and we promptly left our table before... More

It can be hard to get reservations since the "pop up" only exists 2 nights a week but it's worth it. The food is both excellent and educational (local fish, salads and desserts). Anne and Justin are great walking you through the local delicacies. How often do you get to know your fellow diners? We have met many great friends... More

We took advantage of a cancellation and ended up eating here. The portions were smallish but the food was very good. We don't eat pork and so called ahead to confirm it wasn't on the menu that evening. Service was great, price was right, and this was a fun change after so many restaurants in a row.

I'm not a stranger to "farm to table" and respect it a great deal. This meal was kind of an odd experience. First, I had assumed that cool tent in the picture would be on a farm or at least at some pretty site. Silly me - it's on the side of the road with a view of all the... More

This is a great restaurant experience to try in Kauai - my husband and I loved it. It was nice to seat and chat with the other guests and the food was delicious. I especially loved the pork belly with a delicious purple sweet potato. Our only complaint was the bugs- we were both eaten alive. I think the restaurant... More

We have been twice and enjoy eating outside with communal tables. We always meet interesting people. I wish the food was better. It is very good. Not wonderful. The courses tend to be the same things served again. The night we were there we had both pulled goat and pulled beef. The butterfish was good not great. The salad was... More

Our family ate here in July 2014 and were seated with another family at our table. I thought it would be a stretch to bring my two teenage daughters but apparently they like kale. It was a roll of the dice but it worked brilliantly. Courses were kale, then a poke style fish, another salad, pork rib and pulled pork,... More
