Three of us went to Bouchons. After 15 minutes I got up to find a waiter; we had been totally ignored. Two of us ordered Hawaiian chicken and it was very good. One had a burger ordered medium. It came so charred that he had to send it back. The drinks were slow to arrive, a request for ice and... More

Enjoyed a delicious dinner here as part of a pre-wedding celebration. The staff easily handled our large group. Bar drinks were great. But the real treat was the food, served quickly, piping hot and everything fresh. The market fresh grilled fish was excellent, served on local spring greens. Sushi is another good choice - and be sure to try the... More

We ate at Bouchon's a couple of times during our stay in Hanalei - and both times it was truly excellent. We were unsure where to eat one evening and were looking over the menu posted at the downstairs entrance when the owner happened by. He immediately welcomed us, invited us in and seated us at a table by the... More

I am sitting here taking care of my seven year old son who has been throwing up all night and is now experiencing diarrhea. He ate their children's burger and pasta as a side (they exchanged the french fries for pasta as our request). The burger obviously was either not cooked enough or was simply bad meat - not surprising... More

We ate there twice during our stay. First night was just the two of us and we enjoyed it so much we brought back another couple with us. Both times we had the crab cakes as appetizers and they are the best. I've eaten crab cakes all over the US and I do have to deem these the best I... More

After being seated, it took about 5 minutes before a server came to take our drink order. From then on service was good. Amongst the 4 of us, we all ordered an Ono fish dishes - fish & chips, fish tacos and fish wrap. They all were delicious!

I don't know how the sushi or more elaborate meals rate, as my wife and I both opted for the fish and chips. The serving was generous--3 large pieces of fish, and I ended up boxing leftovers for tomorrow. The fish was lightly breaded and tasted very fresh. Definitely a good choice!
