We often visit at sunset especially with out of town guests. Ambience is great, entertainment is great. Menu has been severely reduced. Portions much smaller, no more wonderful pupu tower. Fewer choices. 2 of our party enjoyed ribs. Fish of the day was a thin , small , flavorless portion, a disappointment. One of our party ordered 2 appetizers for... More

I came here on my honeymoon a few weeks ago. This has to be one of the best dinners we've ever had. Amazing food, fabulous service and they easily catered to my severe food allergies. The best bit had to be the view of the sunset - utterly breathtaking! Very romantic! The band and hula dancer were also fantastic! Tip... More

We visited House Without a Key for a cocktail hour before a very fancy dinner at LaMer at the Halekulani Hotel. One mai tai was strong enough to put me over the edge. My father in law's burger was also very good.

we ate her twice...first time waiter extremely knowledgeable about everything. Burger was only good, everyone else's entree quite good. Second time service was ho hum, waitress seemed very preoccupied and not concerned about our experience. I had the beef kebab,which was tough, so I sent it back...no apology except to say she would tell the chef. There's a lot going... More

This was a great way to start the morning off right and the Breakfast Buffet was the very best! I loved the French pressed Kona coffee!

This is the best place to watch the sunset and enjoy appetizers. The views are stunning, drinks are tasty and the ambience is classy. I could have watched the sunset here every night I was on the island. Can't wait to return. This place is something special.

We went on a Friday after work and got there around 610pm we waited about 10-15 minutes for a table which wasn't that bad. Parking was valet and they validated which was great. The restaurant has an... More
