Solid Kaimuki Grill

Excellent choice for "Grill" atmosphere. Reasonable portions, good menu and service. Good for groups, friends and not necessarily for couples looking for quiet. Been 3 times in the past 6 months and very consistent.

We ate at 12th Ave Grill on our recent trip to Oahu. The food was fabulous! Lots of choices; seafood, pork, beef, vegetarian. The food was creative and looked beautiful. They also have really delicious specialty cocktails. The staff was helpful and very attentive. They also have a reservable banquet room if needed. I would highly recommend making a stop!

I was pleasantly surprised to find a new menu and great comfort type food. I will return. Unfortunately, when it first opened in it's new location, the food was overly salted and not palatable. From that first bad experience, I am the only one to return,but I will certainly persuade the other guests to try it again.

We went to dinner the 5 of us and although the food was divine there were a few missteps. Reservation: easy on open table. The restaurant sends and email and a courtesy call to remind you of their reservation. Arrival: waited almost 20 minutes for our table to be set. They should've offered us a cocktail or complimentary something No... More

Mauri was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. Her attention to us and the helpful information she so eagerly offered enhanced our meal. A spacious venue with ample inexpensive public parking adjacent, 12th Ave. is a comfortable, although somewhat noisy, spot. The menu is creative and clever to the point of being difficult to decipher. Laden with heavy, yet full-flavored, entrees... More

We had a glass of wine and some appetizers. The menu looks amazing and the food we had was great. We hope to make it back here for a full meal.

We are house sitting in the neighborhood and my mom found this place. This was my first time here. The staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly from the hostess to the waiter to other staff. I had the farmers market salad and Mac and cheese. My mom had the daily fish special. The salad was flavorful and... More

Rude. Lied to us on the phone. Attempted to make a reservation and turned up but wouldn't put two tables together or allow two groups of five to be seated. Bizarre.

The restaurant setting is pleasant with a nice bar area. Seemed like the bar was full with locals who seemed to know the staff well. Our waiter was friendly, but a little inattentive once we ordered. He never returned to check on how we liked our good or if we needed anything else. We also had to chase him for... More

A welcome change from the tourist traps at Waikiki. A fantastic neighbourhood restaurant just a short cab ride from Waikiki with innovative menu using fresh local produce. Try to save room for the bread and butter pudding which is delicious!
