We anxiously anticipated our visit to the "famous" Kahala Hotel and was very disappointed by the food and service. It seems to be the place where regulars get all the attention while first timers get no hospitality. There are lots of places in O'ahu to...More

Crowded which could be part of the problem. Service was authentic given how busy it was. Out server was apologetic about how busy it was regardless he did a great job. The piano was nice. Good holiday music The food was the challenge. The plates...More

The Light Lunch menu 2-5:30 has many selections. The Lounge menu 5:30-9:30 has very few selections and you'll leave hungry (I think they want to push you to the Plumaria downstairs). The Late Nite menu 9:30-12 midnight, is the full meal deal. Service was okay...More

Relax in the romantic ambience of old Hawaii. A perfect meeting place for afternoon tea or cocktails with live jazz entertainment in the evening. Designed in classic plantation style, The Veranda takes patrons back to another time when life was more leisurely and meeting with friends for tea and conversation was a daily affair. The comfortable lounge overlooks the Dolphin Lagoon with a choice of both indoor and al fresco seating. Large, upholstered chairs are perfect for lingering over a cocktail or just escaping with a good book, as palm leaf motifs and island-inspired furnishings transport you to that other time. Our Afternoon Tea is a tradition, after a day out discovering Oahu. It is also a popular venue for special occasions and showers. Afternoon Tea is a delight with delicate finger sandwiches, sweet treats and carefully curated loose leaf teas.
