We had a memorable dinner celebrating our anniversary at this restaurant. Staff were pleasant and attentive. We were warmly welcomed as soon as we walked in. The restaurant offers a tasting menu as well as ala carte. Seasonal (black winter) truffles made this dining experience...special. We enjoyed every dish served with shaved truffles. The foie gras risotto and uni pasta were rich, creamy, and delicious. Roast duck with foie gras was tender, juicy, and cooked perfectly. Miyazaki A5 was rich and tender but had untrimmed grisle and fat around the edges. The Hazelnut Semifreddo was a nice finish to our meal. They have a nice selection of wines, champagnes, and sake. The service was excellent. Staff were not pretentious. We did not feel rushed or pressured. Timing between courses was just right. It is a nice relaxing place to celebrate a special occasion. We will be back for more.More

Could not have been happier with the world class service, quality of food and atmosphere. I was especially grateful since the chef was able to accommodate my allergies and made my experience super special! The artistry in the food presentation just added to the deliciousness....I have had truffles all around the world and this place definitely had high quality product for a very reasonable price. Oh, and the wine suggestions were more than on point! Cannot wait to come again!More

It was a very pleasant experience from beginning to end. The service is friendly and efficient, Hawaiian warmth, Tokyo and Paris precise. You are served the best of everything, prepared and presented simply and perfectly. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Ever wish you...could have visited a famous restaurant in its early days? This is your chance.More

We had the chef's tasting and ordered wine pairings. I had a course of caviar to start, but was not offered an apéritif or pairing with the caviar. When I questioned this, I was told the restaurant didn't have a bar, only wines. Really!?! How...about a prosseco? After my complaint, the sommelier came over and offered a few sparkling wine selections. This seems small, but in my mind, that's a discriminator. Otherwise, the service was excellent. There was nothing particularly notable in any of the dishes we had, and the atmosphere of the restaurant itself was a bit sterile for our taste. I wouldn't call it inviting. For the money, this should have been an impressive experience. It wasn't.More

My wife and I went to a newly opened truffle restaurant called Margotto Hawaii with recommendation from multiple friends. They said it’s fine dining but casual atmosphere, restaurant has super expensive wines but $15wine by the glasses too. Anyway, what we can guarantee is the...quality of food is by far the best in Hawaii. I think this is the first restaurant in Hawaii that has the highest international standard of high quality food. That said, it’s totally different from others such as numbers of courses, how delicate each courses are, how sophisticated… just can’t write enough. So anyone in Honolulu, looking for real good restaurant, I mean not Hawaiian good, but real good, I recommend you should make reservation now! Oh I last thing, you can go really expensive like in 3stars restaurants but you can also go relatively cheap as well. They have wide price range to match the needs of diners which I liked. Because sometimes I want to impress my friends, sometimes I want to go easy but to have good foods.
