Great staff, Mahalo Dana!!!

The Prime Rib was soooooo ONO, and as far as my husband if you ask him, he'll say Crab, Crab, Crab. Oh and did I mention, CRAB! The other foods in the buffet line was also great, but i'm more of a dessert person. I can tell you this much, we both were full to our stomachs. Does that help?... read more

Had breakfasts at this restaurant during my stay in Sheraton Waikiki. Food selection was not very extensive; though the omelette station is quite great. You get to pick what's inside your omelette in a small bowl before the chef cooks the omelette for you. This place would be ordinary without the view and ocean breeze.

Typical American buffet breakfast - nice. Nice view too! Not too crowded with friendly service. Open early and easy to get a table.

We were here as part of a travel tour [none of the five "What sort of visit was this?" are appropriate] This is a slightly upscale standard buffet. I enjoy the small Japanese addition because I like the pickled vegetables, congee, and natto (an acquired taste). Bacon was crispy, scrambled eggs slightly watery. Home fries (strings) were crispy and less... More

Good food and great customer service. Very kid friendly. We went for the breakfast. It's worth upgrading from the continental breakfast.

We had tried both seafood dinner buffet and breakfast buffet. I think they both excellent. But the price is not cheap at all. The service is excellent. Seating outside when having breakfast was excellent.

Valentine's Day dinner with hubby & child. The spread was ok. I guess I expected better selection. All they served were good. Servers were very accommodating and jolly.

We had buffet breakfast in here. No coffee machine and the staff excuse was that it is broken for the entire of our stay of one week. Tea is served in steel pots!

I came here one night for $45 a person and it was not worth it. I have seen better selections of food at a Golden Coral than here. Of the little food that was here, it wasn't very good. Even at the dessert bar there wasn't much food available. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I had breakfast here most mornings at an outside table overlooking the Ocean and Infinity Pool. The Waiters who are mostly older citizens are attentive, enthusiastic, informative and generally lovely. (especially Martha) The Buffet is extensive and continually restocked with hot and cold food. There is a wide array of fresh fruit with the best pineapple and... More
