The wine selection here is quite extensive with over 50 wines to choose from. This place is noted for their steaks, seafood and thin crust pizzas although I can’t comment regarding the pizza because we did not order the pizza. Live music is present every Friday and Saturday, although we did not experience the live music. My family of 4... More

We enjoyed our dinner here, but it is pricey.The food was good, but depending on what you choose it can really add up especially if you are with people who drink a lot.

I am not a fan of pick up bars. I come for the drinks and the food. If a restaurant doesn't have that, I can't give it a good review regardless of how many single regulars insist this is the best place in Kailua to find a date. Because.. that is not why I am there. It is many months... More

This place is open air, has a great bar, and always has talented live music on the weekends. Their appetizer bruschetta is to die for!! So good!! I also really enjoyed the Sangria. However, I have a dairy allergy and do not eat meat, and I have eaten there a few times. Depending on which chef is working that night,... More

We grabbed an early dinner here on the basis of other reviews, but we were disappointed. Portions were small (for what you are paying), Service could have been better - we were never told what the specials were, for example. She had a salad and an appetizer - shrimp with hummus, an odd combination but good. He had salmon with... More

We just happened by this place while on vacation and loved it. Meals were excellent and service was also. Will go back if we come back to islands.

Stopped by on a night ride and sat at the bar. Ordered a white wine and mussels appetizer. Bartender was very friendly. Food and wine were so so, especially considering the price. Not sure if I'd return.

I came here with my father for a late lunch. The menu is very unimpressive and the service matches the menu. I ordered the kale and beet salad which was actually yummy. The pizzas however is where they fell short. Horrible!!!! I ordered a cappuccino an they said their little cups that take the espresso are ring fixed. Seriously? Also... More

We almost skipped this restaurant because of several poor reviews. Not sure what those folks' issues were with it. We LOVED this restaurant. Excellent service, great wine selection and outstanding food. Yes, it's pricey but it's perfect for special occasions. Salmon with crabmeat was very good and the prime rib was phenomenal (rare, tender and perfectly seasoned). Chocolate macaroon dessert... More
