We came here wondering why this was such a high ranked restaurant on Trip Advisor and we can see why it is! Great warm staff to immediately greet you. Not a big menu but both my husband and I didn't have a problem picking something out. He picked the scallops with sweet mashed potatoes ( he said these were the... More

Me and my family went here while on vacation recently. This restaurant was great! The food was excellent and it was presented like I would expect at a much "fancier" restaurant. The fish was incredible. But the thing that really stood out was the service. Every person we interacted with was amazingly helpful. One of the best restaurants experiences we've... More

We didn't have a reservation on our first visit but the wait was okay as the bartender was both friendly and knowledgeable, even about wine offerings. And BTW, the wine list has some very nice selections. We both chose one of the fresh catches, mine being ahi and I believe she had ono. Don't let the fact I can't remember... More

I am a regular at Jackie Rey's and have had most everything on the menu. I really LOVE the fish specials which are so creative and as delicious to eat as they are beautiful to look at. SO good. Thanks for such reasonable prices and excellent service. Always happy to get to Jackie Rey's!

Sign stated open for Aloha hour 3 till 5pm yet when we arrived at 3:30, they turned us away. Very disappointed as we were looking forward to hitting one of TripAdvisors top dining spots.

ALoha Readers of Trip Advisor--- Sometimes misunderstandings occur in any situation. On this particular day, Saturday June 26th, when the reviewer came at 3:30 we were closed. We do not open for lunch or Aloha Hour on the weekends. If we turned the reviewer away rudely I apologize but any marketing material we put out states our hours. Hopefully it... More

My family of 4 ate here for dinner and had fantastic food! 3 out of the 4 of us had the special of the day and the 4th had chicken tacos. Our service was good and we did not wait long for our seats or food. Well worth the visit!

You will get a fabulous meal. Period. On this trip we shared 2 appetizers with friends: the pork spring rolls and the fried calamari. I won't go into detail about the preparation. Please see my pictures or check out the menu. Just know they were as good as they get. Each of us had the fresh fish prepared a different... More

This is not on the beach or the main tourist drag in Kona. But it's two minutes from there and well worth it. Nice decor, excellent service and perfectly prepared seafood, best we had on the islands so far. I had the special, blackened Ono in a papaya beurre blanc, exquisite - trust the chef and go for what he's... More

We loved our experience at this restaurant. We took 4 children ages 9mo-5yrs old. The environment was laid back, but the food was upscale & unique. All the dishes we tried were plated beautifully and tasted delicious. We had a party of 13 & called ahead. They were ready for us upon arrival 15 minutes later. This restaurant is a... More
