We Uber'ed to get here from Waikiki. It was not a touristy spot. We really liked the feel of the place, and our waiter was great. We split the farmer's market salad and really liked our entrees.

My husband and I came for date night and had two magnificent appetizers (fried Brussels sprout salad & ahi bruschetta) plus split a Fried Chicken entree. Each bite made my mouth so happy. The cocktails were also unique and well made.

I have to agree with Mary W's review. We travel a lot and our holiday experiences usually revolve around where we have eaten, and this place was magic. Chic, cool vibe, beautifully smooth layout, it all just worked. Three of us eating tonight and our waiter Cory was kind and patient enough to take us through the menu. No complaints... More

The accompanying spicing and whatever....was a delight to my mouth!!! We also shared a local fish special that some may miss: Opah! My favorite local fish that you likely won't find anywhere but here in... More

We tried as many local restaurants in the island as we could. In the end this was our TOP choice for any visitor. It is NOT a touristy restaurant and was recommended by a sommelier in the Four seasons as the best in the island.. and it was. I ordered the Lamb Shank and my wife the Rib Eye. Bothe... More

All local ingredients, great atmosphere. Creative food. Sample a bunch of small plates, so you get to taste as many different things as possible. Mac and cheese with the Hamakua mushrooms is one of my favorites.

This was my third visit and again it was outstanding. Great selection of wines, new menu items along with some old favorites. One of my friends is a vegetarian and they said it was the best food they had in Oahu. The Brussels sprouts are always great. One of my favorite places to go when entertaining friends who are visiting!... More

Best meal we've had on any of the Islands and we've been to them all This is a neighborhood place and doesn't cater to a tourist clientele We had the fried Brussels sprout salad appetizer and the local house salad Both were exceptional Then we had the lamb shank and rib eye steak and both were tender and seasoned to...

Had dinner here last week. We had been here twice before - once about a year ago and once about 6 months ago. First time we did not like it at all, but since we kept hearing about it we went back thinking we had ordered incorrectly. It was marginally better the second time (the food was edible) and we...
