My teen granddaughter and I were "stranded" in Honolulu when our flight to Guam was cancelled for 2 days. We stayed at the Ala Moana Hotel, who has a contract with United Airlines. Romano's Macaroni Grill was located across the street from this hotel at a huge shopping mall and was one of the places which our United Airlines meal... More

My party of 4 recently dined here to celebrate Father's Day. Our server was prompt, informative and personable. The kitchen was able to modify an existing dish for a member of our party with many food intolerances AND made it taste good to boot! The appetizers and beverages were excellent, and the main courses were well presented and tasty. We... More

Macaroni grill never disappoints me. Their lunch specials were very reasonably priced. The salad and the pasta entree were very flavorful. It was located at the Ala Moana Center which was a very large shopping mall. We were with friends who suggested this grill. I was not disappointed.

My daughter and I had their macaroni and cheese bites, roasted artichokes and goat cheese flat bread. All were good and filling. The pasta dishes and salads were generously sized and wine was reasonable.

Just stopped in to have dinner whilst finishing some shopping at Ala Moana... Was expecting a "try hard" version of Italian food (I am fussy as my mum is Sicilian and best cook ever) but OMG yummmmy! I had the fillet steak with greens- steak was cooked to medium perfection! Seriously grilled melt in your mouth perfection! The flavour was... More

Just left this restaurant we frequent two times a year while on business. Took a table in the bar area. We had a good waitress. Placed order and waited 55minutes! Are you kidding??? Shrimp was short in the Portofino once we got served. Took so long to get food almost forgot what we ordered. Drinks came okay along with bread.... More

I have eaten here several times and have always had a pleasant experience. Tonight was really no different. The server was friendly and knowledgable with the wait only being a few minutes. My only semi complaint was they had happy hour, but you had to go to the bar, pay, then bring to your table. That was the only way... More

Had lunch here while shopping at Ala Moana. We were told there would be a 10 minute wait for a table for two even though the restaurant was only 1/4 full. So we took a table in the bar. Server was excellent. Very pleasant and attentive. Pasta d'mere (mussels, scallops & shrimp) was great. Very tasty sauce. Spaghetti & meatballs... More
