I recently had a delicious meal at Papa Haydn's with family members. The food was delicious, and the people working there were so friendly, starting with the woman who greeted and seated us to our server, who never once asked "If we were still working on our meal" a term that is senseless really. I just returned from Italy and... More

My Mom and I went for happy hour. The blueberry drink was wonderful. The prices where fair and the location was terrific. The calamari and burger were ok. The fries were just fries. But the service was good and it made for wonderful people watching.

We came here as a big group and they were quick to make a space for us after a very busy lunch crowd. The food and drinks were delicious - lots of specialty cocktails and coffee and teas! And the desert is AMAZING! Besides this is a great part of town, so if you are visiting - you should plan... More

My lunch of Risotto was perfect. I passed the desserts up this time but love the creative and original items they offer. I have had them cater deserts for a Christmas Party before to rave reviews. Service was attentive and friendly as always.

Great service, first of all. Really, really good desserts, but they are rich and huge. I recommend sharing with at least one other person. No one at our table finished so we all had dessert for the next day as well. Located in a great spot that is fun to walk around and full of activity. We came in with... More

Loved their delicious "Croque Monsieur" sandwich on parmesan-encrusted bread. Lovely corner restaurant with great food and service. A real winner!

Visited once. Would most definitely return. French onion soup and a salmon/apple salad were surely yummy. Friends I dined with enjoyed their entrees as well. Good choice of restaurant. But, leave room for dessert!! Oh, it would be a mistake not too. In fact, ask for the dessert menu first as it might inform the amount of dinner your choose.

The NW 23rd location was bustling on a Saturday afternoon. The host was gracious and friendly. We got seated quickly. Our server was attentive despite being very busy. The shrimp and clam appetizer was flavorful cooked in an olive oil and seafood broth base with herbs that had us asking for more Brad to soak up the complex and delicious... More

Found many fellow Hawaiians on the two days that we were there. Too many amazing dishes and desserts. Went back another day so I had room for dessert. Tip: bring a lot of friends and share the dishes so that there is room for dessert. And the desserts are amazingly wonderful. My husband fell in love with the French Onion... More
