We had a wonderful dinner at this location, Assagio Hawaii Kai. The service was excellent. Our hostess was very accommodating - there is a dress code for this restaurant - one of our dinner companions wore flip flops and a tank top, somewhat under dressed, but they didn't make a big deal about it. Our waiter was very attentive. The... More

We always enjoy our local Assaggio Hawaii Kai especially when celebrating special occasions. For this past Father's Day, we ordered take-out for Father's Day dinner. Food as always was good however to our surprise one of the orders was incorrect. We didn't want to drive back to restaurant to pickup correct order so we just kept the wrong order despite... More

Assagio just has really good dishes, pleasant atmosphere, a nice marina location, and good service. It's my 'neighborhood restaurant'; my husband and I go here occasionally - but not as often as I'd like. I often order the Sicilian Chicken or Shrimp Arrabiata. The latter is not on the menu, but the chef will substitute shrimp in the Fish Arrabiata,... More

Good bread and food, as well as friendly service in a quiet atmosphere. While it isn't the ultimate in fine dining, it is quite nice for a good lunch and casual dinners. We ended up eating there three times over the course of a five-day stay in Honolulu. --Jeri

Visiting from Colorado. We were delighted with this restaurant . It was simply, yet elegantly decorated. The service was top notch! Friendly- professional- efficient! I ordered Veal Marsala- flavor was perfect. My husband ordered Linguine with Marinara. Could have been a bit more spiced up. The warm bread was tasty- crisp on the outside, warm on the inside. We had... More

I come here every other month or so and in the summer the service suffers a bit but overall this really is a good place to have a nice relaxing dinner away from the crowds of Waikiki. Go for the smaller portion or split a larger plate. Be prepared to wait during the high season (winter break, spring and summer)... More

Called the restaurant at 4:30 PM today (Valentine's Day) during the long President's Day weekend and expecting a table for 2. Duh! They politely said they were sold out. Ok. No problem. Called around and heard the same sad story. Instead, we took a short drive to Sandy Beach and checked out the ocean and surf. Then we drove down... More

My cousin brought us here four years ago, and it was the first place we wanted to go on our return trip. Both times we thought the food was heavenly! The three of us ordered different fish entrees, and everything was exquisite. They not only had a large selection of seafood, but they offered different methods of preparation of each... More

We like the atmosphere which was peaceful and quiet. We could visit with friends without shouting or feel like we were skirting so close to other diners. They serve small and large size dinners. The small was plenty of food. I grew with other reviewers that the bread served is not worth mentioning or the calories. The. Service on a... More

Very good food but service is very slow. 2 1/2 hours we have been here and still haven't gotten the bill. Only reason for a very good rating is because of the slow serves. Should have been excellent Small portions are large enough for an adult serving. They do not have a child's menu.
