Go for the live music!

And don't go on nights that they don't have any. It makes that big a difference. Pizza and entrees are OK but overpriced. Waitstaff and the hostess are really friendly and the music is great!

We were here with a large group, were able to get table out back and it was a great spot to be able to talk. The MaiTais were very good. I liked da Hawaiian and the Kalua pig pizza. The Kauai Prawns Macadamia in honey sauce was very good.

Our family of 7 spent a great night of amazing cocktails, fantastic food and listened to awesome live music. The poke was delicious. The fish was amazing. Everyone loved their meals and the staff were fantastic.

After a long day and driving back from the North Shore decided to find this place as a friend recommended it. It was packed and we had to wait for our pizza (45 min) but was good.

What a great little place! If it's good enough for George Clooney, it's good enough for me! Ambience is great!

Well we stopped here for a drink because I had to see it because of The Decendents ... It's in pretty rough.. never been renovated shape!! Plus they had an older lady working there who couldn't figure out her cash register.. We finally left without getting served as did a few other people!!!

Our server was one of the friendliest we've had and she suggested we try their Mai Tais. So glad she did, because they were unbelievably good! We might have had 2 and, as a result, had to change our plans for the day... Totally worth it! We really enjoyed their food. I think we had fish & chips for lunch... More

Been doing Tahiti Nui for about 15 years. Have seen some very talented musicians from Matt and Vito, Makana, Jeff, Milo and so many more. The drinks are excellent and this past Summer we had some dinners there that were exceptional. We also like to go to the Wine Bar next door, especially Sunday nights. The bartender Patrick took great... More

My husband and I went here twice on our stay because a few years ago it was amazing. This time drinks were okay but the poor service and horrible food outweighed the good mai tai's. The bartenders were very rude and unwelcoming. We had an ahi burger which was way overcooked, and i wanted it raw and the catch of... More

We had a great dinner at Tahiti Nui. A great cocktail while waiting. Ended up eating on the wine bar side and Bridgette was a great bar tender and hostess. Her specialty cocktails were excellent along wit her great wine recommendation. Dinner was excellent. The live entertainment in the restaurant was enjoyable and added to the great atmosphere. Always one... More
