Very disappointing after years of great food, great experience. The fish in my cioppino was overcooked and rubbery, with little other than clams. The great seafood pasta is no more and the replacement uninspiring. With the significant increase in prices I'm not sure we will...be back.More

Sitting ocean side was amazing. I wish we had reserved a table for 6pm instead of 7pm so we could see the sunset. The food was fine, for the price it was nothing special, but the ambiance was great. Had we not gotten luck on...our table and had to sit inside, I don't think it would have been the same.More

We had both the fish and chips and the grilled Mahi-mahi. The fried dish was lightly breaded and great. The grilled Mahi-mahi came with some sort of sauce(?) that was amazing. Combine that sauce with melt-in your moth flaky fish on top of mashed potatoes...and you get a dish out of this world. Highly recommended! The place was exceptionally well-run and the bartender Jen was incredible to watch.More

We couldn’t make it to all our favorite restaurants this trip with our two young children so we tried this fairly new place. This is our new favorite especially if staying near Lahaina. There is no kids menu but the kids loved the Mac n...cheese/truffle fries and the staff and patrons were all very sweet to the kids and they made an ice cream with strawberries at my daughters request. We loved the ahi bruschetta, octopus, scampi (possibly best I’ve had), and the fish dore style. The view was outstanding as were the wines we had. Mixed drinks and dessert were good as well. Parking is tough. We look forward to returning here in future visits but expect reservations will become harder to obtain as the place has been in this form longer and people realize how good it is. This time we were able to get a 5pm reservation 48 hours in advance.More

We arrived in time for luch looked at the menu and was wary due to the price. Yet despite the prices it had been recommended and we entered. We wanted to sit outside, but it was too hot, so we chose a table inside for...four with a view of the water. Our wait staff and servers were excellent and took our drink orders and quickly returned for our food orders. I'm not much on seafood, so I chose a burger and fries. The others in our group all had sandwiches and cocktails. The food was good all around, the restrooms sparkling with beautiful decor. But the total including tips, tax, etc came to almost $300.More

Very few places combine an incredibly tasty (and fairly priced) menu with a super friendly staff along with an amazing venue with beautiful ocean views. Honu Oceanside nails it! Today was my first visit and definitely will not be my last. I cannot wait to...return to have the ahi bruschetta again!More

The view from the restaurant is amazing. If you are lucky enough to secure a table during sunset, you're in for a treat. The food is on par with the view. Fresh fish and seafood deliciously prepared. Service is equally as good, our waitress Mairi...was amazing.More

We were a group of 4 couples, and all of us enjoyed the wonderful meals, service, and views. The manager, Justin, and server, NoNo, gave excellent service! Oysters, ciopinno, pizzas were all great! Lovely wines and cocktails. Highly recommend but make a reservation!

Casual chic atmosphere with a great ocean view, updated modern design with historical reference. You can tell the chef had European and Michelin exposure bringing out the best in each dish. If your looking for upscale food for reasonable price this is your hidden gem.

We had a wonderful dinner last night at Honu. Arrived just before sunset and were seated on the porch with an excellent view allowing us to take a few memorable photos. We started off with a few of their signature cocktails (Tipsy Botanist, Cucumber Breeze)...both of which were very good. We decided to go with the starter that others have mentioned in previous reviews…. The Ahi Bruschetta. They were correct… it is fantastic! The fresh fish Dore style and Kale salad were also very good. The great food, drinks and wine were just some of the highlights. The other was our waiter Daniel. We cannot say enough about how much he influenced a great night out to dinner for us. We are unsure how much control he has on the timing of drinks, courses, etc., but it could not have gone better. Nothing annoys us more than when food comes out rapid-fire and that certainly did not happen at Honu. We have been blessed to eat dinner at some very nice restaurants throughout the world and must say that Daniel ranks up there with some of the best servers we have ever encountered.More

My husband and I have been going to HONU religiously since 2014. We finally returned post pandemic today and were hoping to enjoy the amazing hospitality and food we were so custom to. Covid did this place no favors. They remodeled and are now trying...to be a modern farmhouse on the beach - thanks but no. The food was way overpriced for what we got. The worst was the horrible service we had. The sever literally tossed her colleague under the bus when he took our plates which we had said was fine. She was straight up rude and isn’t “Practicing Aloha.” (They used to give out bumper stickers and of course don’t anymore.) *If you have been here before they no longer give you the chickpeas.* Save your 300 dollars and go to a place that appreciates you and your time and your money. End rant.More

My wife and I thought we booked on open table, however, we made an error and actually didn't have reservations. Lisa, listened to our story and "never flinched". The restaurant was crowded, however, that didn't deter her from giving us a table, almost in the...water. Amazing how she handled the situation. The food was exceptional and I assure you we will return. I strongly recommend Honu for lunch or dinner.More

This is a great place to watch the sunset and enjoy a delicious meal. The ahi meatballs were amazing! It is a bit pricey but the portions were just right. Unlike the place we had for lunch where our entrées would hardly pass as an...appetizer. Both our meals were excellent as well as the wait staff. It was a busy time of the evening but we were well taken care of. It’s a lively and pleasant atmosphere.More
