We saved the best until last and visited MW on our last night after it having been recommended by locals and visitors alike. It was amazing. The service was faultless and you definitely must save room for dessert as it is their speciality for sure. We ordered one entree/main and they kindly split it on to two plates for us... More

I was there on a Monday night with a group of 11 colleagues. We chose the tasting menu, which we found to be an excellent choice, and a great value. Our multicourse dinner included a wide panoply of flavours, mainly reflecting dishes of Oriental cuisine: among them, ceviche, ahi poke, crème brulée, kimchi, risotto, and opakapaka. The wine, beer, cocktail... More

First, here's now to get there: It's behind Pho Saigon (which has a big easy to see sign). MW has a small sign that is two forks making the letters m and w. Hard to see from the road. Went there with my family for early dinner, happy hour before catching a plane to the mainland US. My son said... More

I dined at MW for lunch with a girlfriend on 9/3/14. We both agreed that the food was just "okay". The combinations (Hawaiian/Asian fusion) were interesting, food was nicely presented, but the flavors were just okay. The dishes were creative, but fell short on execution. I would prefer tasty food without all the fussiness. We don't mind spending $$$ on... More

Good service, with great food. The location is surprising but the ambience is nice. We would hurry back for the creative meals and lengthy menu.

Went here for a "date night" with my wife and was pleasantly surprised by how good everything was. From the service to the food, and including the atmosphere. We are going to try their lunch menu next. So many things on the menu to try and so little time. Can't wait to go back.

Went here for dinner with a group of 8 to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. Had a reservation and we were seated right away. We started with some appetizers including calamari and others which were very good and an array of special mixed drinks. I had the garlic steamed red snapper for dinner and it may have been the...

We had hoped to start off our Hawaii trip with a nice dinner based on MW restaurant's credentials. service appears to be a bit slow. I had noticed a long table was setup for the 9 of us, but we weren't seat until 10 minutes later? It didn't appear to be overly busy. The food presentation was good. Everything had... More

First, we were able to find this restaurant using The Bus, as it was just across from Nieman Marcus at Ala Moana Mall. You should make reservations, as we did, and were seated promptly. The best thing: I was able to enjoy the Tasting Menu with wines while my husband, who has to eat a more restricted diet, ordered from... More

MW Restaurant is a great new place to enjoy Hawaii flavors. The restaurant is frequented by many local Hawaii foodies. It's a great place for visitors to Hawaii to sample Hawaii/Asian fusion flavors for moderate prices and the restaurant is located relatively close to Waikiki. I would recommend making a reservation a week to two weeks in advance. The restaurant... More
