High hopes but let down with service

We went for dinner as this place came highly recommended by many people. We went, and as expected it was crowded. We don't mind a wait, however, there is a lack of system involved and it made it chaotic. No visible hostess area, no one waiting to greet customers, we blindly walked in (feeling... read more

We visited this restaurant on Monday and didn't realize it until we got there but you get 25% off everything on Monday's. This can be a hard place to get into so reservations are recommended. (we wanted to go Sunday but could not get in until Monday) The bruschetta and Caesar salad were delicious. My husband had the veal scallopini... More

I have been to Baci Bistro several times and keep it on my list of favorite places for dinner. The atmosphere is warm, elegant and friendly. The food is always presented beautifully and tastes delicious. This evening was made even more special because our son, daughter-in-law & 7 month old grandson were visiting from Seattle. Our other son and his... More

Some friends took us to this wonderful little restaurant on the windward side of Oahu. While the decor and service was just okay, the food was excellent and made up for the rest. We had grilled Ahi, grilled Salmon, Beet salads, Butternut ravioli with cranberries and walnuts, and Gnocchi stuffed with truffles. Everyone raved about their meals and everyone shared... More

Nice low-key ambience. Great service. Great seafood/pasta dishes. This is where we usually go when we have something to celebrate.

My husband and I love to dine outdoors on the sidewalk terrace at Baci Bistro, either with friends or just the two of us. It's relaxing and romantic. They also offer indoor seating, which looks nice, too - we just prefer to be outside. The food and service are both excellent. I love anything they make with salsiccia (sausage), but... More

We recently visited family in Hawaii and tried this restaurant. There were 5 of us for dinner and very much enjoyed the food and the service. The ceasar salad was one of the best I ever had and my son said the same for his beet salad. The lamb shanks were tender and flavorful. My veal porcini was good but... More

What a gorgeous night out on the lanai. The food was outrageously good, the wine was superior and the service was dependable, friendly and on target. This was a great night. I would choose outside over the inside and make reservations. This Italian wonder should be a must-see!

We were seated outside and when it rained, my daughter was rained upon. The did not offer to move us.We asked for water and did not get it for 25 minutes. The waitress seemed to have too many tables or was kind of scattered. The bread was dry, but was served with olive oil. Our dishes were tasty and served... More
