“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

My husband and I had a great dinner. I recommend for a starter "Da Bag"- yummy clams with kalua pork in broth. The presentation when they bring it out is just fun...here's a clue..Jiffy pop popcorn;) My husband had the lamb chops and it was delicious! Desert you can't go wrong with the passion fruit brulee or coconut ice cream in the dark chocolate shell.

“One flavor bomb after another”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Great restaurant. Second time there did not disappoint. Do try "da bag" and the outrageously good tomato salad. Everyone loved their entrees. The lemon dessert was memorable. Waiter was tops-not stuffy but very knowledgeable. Do not be surprised by low key location.

“Real food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We had dinner here on the second last night of our 12-day Maui/Waikiki trip, and I can honestly say that this was the first time since our holiday began that we actually ate 'real' food...from the starter which was a wonderful Alan Wong take on agedashi, to the main course - another Alan Wong take, this time on bouillabaisse - to the dessert, a delicious citrussy creme brulee! The attention from the waiting staff was excellent, the surroundings were modern and lush....all in all, a memorable evening!

“Romantic Place to Celebrate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is expensive, but the imaginative menu and faultless service warrant a visit for special occasions. Reserve in advance, as prime time is in great demand. But if your seating is late, it's worth the wait.
The seared ahi appetizer was awesome, as were the seafood cakes, each caressed with a succulent sauce that warms the heart and makes you smile. The braised ribs were graced with a sauce to die for, accompanied by garlic mash potatoes flavorable enough to keep up without a sauce. It might be wise to share an entree in order to enjoy a diverse meal via the appetizers and salads.
If they are aware of the occasion, the staff finds ways to surprise you along the way.
