Had dinner there recently and thoroughly enjoyed the food, service, view of the sunset and the entertainment. This was probably our favorite place on a recent visit to Waikiki. We plan on going back next year when we return.

The cocktail arrived almost immediately, the beer just never seemed to arrive and when we inquired we were told that the waiter had dropped the beer and... More

Friends of ours suggested that we go here for cocktails before dinner. I am so glad that we did. The service quality from the valet, hosts and servers was exceptional. Immediately seated near the stage area we had some delicious drinks and very tasty hors d'oeuvres. That evening everyone were serenaded by the Delima Ohana as we watched the beautiful... More

the view here is beautiful and the food was above average. The menu is somewhat limited. Service was great. We will. Do this one again on our next. Visit.

My Mom and I went there for a mid-afternoon lunch, sat out closer to the beach walk and really enjoyed ourselves. We had a fantastic view of Diamond Head and had a leisurely lunch. They have a good selection of wines by the glass, so we had some Rose Champagne, a plate of freshly slices salmon, and couldn't resist their... More

I love the view looking over the ocean with the beautifully landscaped lawn of the Halekulani. The entertainment is wonderful with a traditional feel of Hawaiian music. Relaxing environment, food is good but my overall 'memory' is primarily the ambiance. Will definitely return:)
