We've been going to sunday brunch for decades now from the days when they served opah (moonfish) poke and confit of duck legs on the brunch buffet. The food, while looking like any standard brunch buffet, is still pretty good these days, but it is the service which, even with the addition of new faces amongst the waitstaff, has remained...

If you like dining by the ocean, this restaurant has a spectacular view and a beautiful setting. However, we waited to get water, coffee, our order taken, refills, plates cleared etc. At $6 for a cup of coffee, my friend only had 6 sips, since he didn't fill the cup the first time and when she asked for a refill,...

We made an early (6pm) dinner reservation so that we would be able to eat while the sun was going down. When we arrived, we were promptly shown to our table, which was on the lanai looking out to the ocean - what a view - particularly at that time of the day, The staff were all incredibly professional and...

I read all the reviews on the Brunch, but you have got to experience it to believe it! From the time you walk in everyone addresses you by name, I felt I was at a club and not a hotel. You first decision is where do I start, Salads, Fish, Omelets, Breakfast entrees, Dinner Entrée, Veggies, Starches, the Carving Table... More

This restaurant is ocean front with spectacular views of the sunset and/or Diamond Head. We reserved an ocean /Diamond Head View table. The particular evening we ate here there had just been a fine mist rain and we were rewarded with a beautiful rainbow in front of Diamond Head! This restaurant location is in the Halekulani which is a gorgeous... More

Ive eaten in some amazing places everywhere, the food here is good, location is great, view and service. Honestly I think they should give a bigger portion for the price, or else I would have given all 5 stars

Make no mistake about it, this is a fine dining experience. This a restaurant to dress up for, to relish, to take your time and to enjoy the spectacular view. The service was impeccable. We, the four of us, were celebrating a milestone birthday. Different people have different food preferences so we won't detail the menu. Sufficient to say that... More

We ate here on the last night of our 2 week vacation celebrating our 10 year anniversary. It was the first time we had ever eaten anywhere at the Halekulani and were really looking forward to it. We had a cozy table in the corner of the lanai. I have to say it was the perfect evening. We told Gary,... More
