“Always delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

I have been to Gerard's several times on business, and every time, it is exceptionally delicious. This time around I tried the escargot and it was wonderful. I always get the steak, and it is always so good. For desert, I tried the honey ice cream which was great, but I would have prepared their other signature desert dish which is like a piece of French toast (for lack of a better comparison, but it is much more elegant…lol) with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. That is really good. Overall, service is always good, and the setting is personal enough that the owner actually comes out to meet the customers every night. Highly suggest this place when you are on island.

“Fabulous 25th Anniversary Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

We ate at Gerard's 25 years ago when we got married in Hawaii and it was so nice to go back and find it still one of the best restaurants in all of Hawaii. It is located in a plantation type house with a front porch where we dined and the food leaning toward the French side was wonderful. My husband had some of the best lamb chops ever and I had Gerard's special snapper dish and was I glad I ordered it. The bread so good and being able to get my favorite French chardonnay by the glass was perfect. The server was great even running out to the parking lot to give my husband the parking pass.

“Want to return! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Excellent food and service! Even the kids menu food was delicious. Personally, I feel that that means a lot and sets the good from the great restaurants apart. Why should your children eat crappy food when you aren't. I would recommend it! Romantic atmosphere and also nice for the family.

“Romantic Date Night in a Central Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Gerard's offers a magical, romantic dining experience that is perfect for couples. The plantation house provides a beautiful ambiance. We ate on the veranda and adored it.

We ordered the 8-course seafood tasting menu with wine-pairing, which could not be beat. It's definitely worth the $$$$ price tag.

My favorite course was the sorbet topped with champagne! Truly a memorable and romantic dining experience.
