“Halibut and ambiance was outstanding!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We've been here before, and every time I want to lick the plate and kiss the chef. There is something for everyone on the menu from sushi to pork to beef. I thought the Sea Bass couldn't be beat, but the Macadamia Crusted Halibut was even better. We had a party of six from an Open Table reservation, and they sat us right on time, even though the hostess said Open Table shows more tables available than they really had. The drinks are a little overpriced, as an $80 bill for two is a little pricey for the area. It was 4 drinks, one wine , one appetizer and one entree. The decor is calming and nicely lit for dinner, the owner circles the tables. Our waitress was very friendly, and split the checks for three couples with a smile. We will be back!

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

Went here after I read the reviews. It's was great. The service was top notch. The appetizers (Calamari Steak) a little small portion wise, but tasty and tender. For dinner Kal Bi ribs, and the wife had chicken. Great flavor on both, good portion size, cooked perfect. Dessert was coconut custard and cheesecake. Very good, very very sweet on the custard dish. My only negatives on the place would be its pricey, and noisy. Not a place for a quiet dinner.

“very nice evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We took a chance on a new place and were very happy with what we found! We were immediately taken care of by a very good and observant server. (Staisha 1008). We chose to sit in lounge as the dining room was closing soon, fun night, great music and happy crowd of quite a few regulars around us. Excellent oysters and sashimi to start, followed by more yummy choices. Only set back was 2nd mai tai at happy hour price was significanty lacking alcohol that the first one at regular price had, but our server took care of this too!

“Perfect for sushi newbies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

For those of you intimidated by strangely named cuisine, this is the place to lose your inhibitions.
Although we are seafood junkies, this was only our second experience with these delicate delights.
The extraordinarily informative wait staff patiently described everything on the extensive menu. We had their Spider Roll stuffed with soft-shell crab with an excellent sauce and an avocado, crab, spicy tuna, coconut Tommy O roll, both excellent. Crunchy coconut shrimp and the Macadamia nut halibut as a main course were both superb. Desert was the chocolate lava cake, in honor of the surrounding Cascades.
Our only minor criticism might be the acoustics; it was relatively noisy for such a well appointed place.
It is not inexpensive, but great value for the price.
We will be back.

“Delicious Food and Aloha Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Our group of three arrived and we were offered either inside or outside dining. Tommy O's has a very nice, although small, courtyard outside dining area. The restaurant inside is tastefully decorated, with the feeling that you just arrived in Hawaii. We each had something different, the pulled pork was plentiful and delicious, the scallops were amazing (although a small portion) and the Ceasar salad was typical. Tommy stopped by for a visit, which put a wonderful touch on the evening. The Lava Cake with coconut ice cream topped off the evening.
