Despite a little mixup with regards the time of our reservation the staff were very friendly especially our server Chris whose lighted and knowledgeable approach gave us a useful insight to the options. The food was cooked to perfection and all agreed it was well worth the money and with the great service it was an enjoyable night out

Okay a revolving restaurant in Waikiki, really! I did not expect much but took the risk for the view even though i was expecting, at best, an average meal. Boy was I in for a pleasant surprise. The view was, as expected, spectacular but the food stole the show it was gourmet quality in terms of presentation and taste. The... More

Went here for our last night in Waikiki. It was very 'proper'. We were I was unwell, and had no taste, so had to go on my husband's word on the meals. I only had two appetisers, whilst he had an appetiser and entrée. He said that they were great and enjoyed his (plus some of mine). The view from... More

Went there with low expectations expecting a cheesy over priced tourist trap but were pleasantly surprised by the great food, service and price. We were there in time for the sunset menu and it was great value for money. I had the chicken cordon bleu for appetiser which was crunchy, moist and flavoursome for $9. For entree we all had... More

Lovely revolving restaurant, serving excellent food by expert waiting staff. All dishes and specials are well known by the servers and they are attentive without being intrusive. Quite expensive so great fora special treat.

The restaurant is certainly known for it's top of the city view and revolving restaurant. The service was very good and you were easily able to walk around and get pictures without disturbing other guests. The food was very good. A nice place for our first dinner in Hawaii .

As tourists traveling in a small group naturally we were suckered in by the "must see" views and rotating restaurant. To sum up this experience: Nice view of the city. Food is mediocre at best. Wine served at room temperature, red wine was rather warm. Service is pleasant, like the rest of the service on the island. I ordered the... More

Took my family of four to the Top of Waikiki for a nice Mothers Day Dinner. My mother could not handle the 2 escalator ride once we got to the top elevator floor. The three of us managed her up the escalators with some finessing. Don't know why they cannot have an elevator to the top floor for seniors and... More

My boyfriend took me there for my birthday. The servings are really small, typical for high end restaurants, but the presentation and the taste of everything we tried was really good. I had the lobster, we shared the NY steak appetizer, really good!, then my boyfriend had the Filet Mignon entrée, and I had the main lobster. Their wines are... More
