Another grand evening. Decided to do small plate and just enjoy as many dishes as our belly would handle. Our selections were the crab cakes, Wagyu Beef sliders, Pork and Foie Gras Wonton, Fried Oysters, Ahi Nachos, Roast Duck salad and a grand dessert finish of the Strawberry Shave ice. Drinks, wine and some fine service made the evening enjoyed... More

The ahi nachos and fried chicken were fantastic appetizers. The shortribs with foie gras was decadent. The martinis were perfect. The coconut dessert was out of this world. Topped off with amazing service. What a treat!

Food was pretty but very average for the price. For example the ahi nachos, the avocado fell short! In that instance I would have done smthg to jazz up the flavorless avocado. Citrus? ....one of the red peppers you put in EVERYTHING else including the Caesar Salad! The entree that I had was good. Somebody noodles underwhelming. I suppose I... More

My family and I were celebrating a Birthday here for dinner, the disappointment Started as soon as we walked in... Hostess seemed not interested. Waiter was friendly, but dinner took an hour and they forgot our appetizer. It was served after the main course. The food presentation was excellent, and entrees were good for a Restaurant at this level. We... More

In a nondescript building near Ala Moana Shopping Center. All the appetizers and mains were excellent. Fresh ingredients with creative touches, balanced flavors. Don't miss dessert!

We've been to this restaurant before and had a very good experience and so reserved a table here for a birthday dinner with a very good friend. This time ... the experience was not so good. In fact it was bad. It started when we arrived. The hostess was on the phone with someone, staring out the window. She didn't... More

Had dinner here on Xmas eve at the same time as the Obamas. Ordered their holiday dinners, they were very good. The best part of the meal was the dessert. I forgot what it was called, but ask for their best dessert, it's a must have. Double check your bill though, there was a computer error with ours, but they... More

Little hard to find, but worth it - the food was excellent and service was very good. We are "foodies" and this restaurant could easily compete with top quality dining in New York City. Highly recommend it.

Really cool non-touristy spot. High quality locally sourced ingredients. Imaginative dishes with amazing flavors. Top notch service - attentive but not overly intrusive. Our waiter was super helpful and knowledgable about the menu and had great recommendations. Urban eats decor and vibe that you would find on the mainland. If you are looking to escape the sea of Hawaiian shirts... More
