We like to grab a seat at the bar, quicker then waiting for a table and happy hour menu until 6 pm. Great food, great drinks and generally great service. Recommend ahi poke tower and anything on the dessert menu.

Dinner was tasty, but with drinks the bill adds up. Expect to pay over $100 per couple for a dinner elsewhere around $60 pet couple. Parking is limited, and not really a restaurant for ocean views. An Overrated local hangout in my estimation.

Grilled foods not normally separated during cooking but may be able to be cooked separately of which you would have to talk to the chef or management first. Aloha
