“Should be ranked higher on Trip Advisor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

Stumbled upon Aloha Table at nIght. The second floor as lit with tiki torches around the outside balcony. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was not only amazing but priced well.

For appetizer we tried the cabbage and pork--it had dumpling sized square cabbage slices and slightly salted pork chunks. I reccomend trying that for starts. As for dinner, I tried he loco moco since we were after all in Hawaii. It was tasty but pretty standard. My other half ate the salmon special--wow! So deli jobs with a traditional Japanese seasoning, cilantro, and miso soup to flavor.

We had all that food and 5 beers and the bill was only 75.00. Also the tables were nicely spaced so we didn't feel crowded. This places deserves much more credit than the ranking on tripadvisor.

“Hidden from View But Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

Hidden on the second floor on a side street in downtown Waikiki you will find a small intimate Japanese/Hawaiian style dining experience. You have to search it out. Our beachboy turned us onto the small restaurant which he claims to eat at 4 days a week. The servers were attentive and were very familiar with the menu items. We had the Kalua Pork Quesadillas, a Caesar salad, and Premium Kobe style Loco Moco (beef patties, mushrooms, two eggs, and rice). Enough for two. Delicious and very reasonably priced. The cost of beer and wine was inexpensive compared to the major tourist restaurants in downtown Waikiki. Parking is free in front of the restaurant but there are spaces for only about 6 cars. You climb up stairs to get to the front entrance. There is both indoor and outdoor tables. Very clean but no view.

“Tucked away treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2011

My colleague and I stumbled upon The Aloha Table when detouring off the busy sidewalks along the beach. Although it is in an alley, the second floor dining room with balcony seating is quiet and cozy.
The staff worked in tandem to ensure our dining pleasure and a pleasure it was! I had the Ahi Poke (traditional style) and my friend dined on a shrimp alfredo dish that was large enough for a "to go" box. Both were delicious.
We plan to visit again before we leave the island.
Located near the Holiday Inn Beachcomber.

“Sweet Little Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2011

Living in Waikiki, there are many good restaurants. After a stirring recommendation from a friend, I went up to Aloha Table Waikiki located on the second floor. The atmosphere is stellar...don't realize you're sitting in the middle of a very busy section of Waikiki. The service was excellent...bartender came out and showed us to a table as the maitre'd was busy. The food was a delightful... a fusion of Italian, Local and Japanese with a hefty use of garlic. The value for the food was good...a fair return on your investment!
