We had a stunning meal here - locally sourced ingredients, mainly organic. Food was prepared with a light touch and with obvious care. The food was delicious! The wait staff were attentive but not fawning. Best meal we have had in Hawaii in our 3 visits here. Definitely book though as this restaurant seems very popular with locals.

This was my second time to Town the first was a year ago when I first visited Honolulu. I returned because it was a trip highlight last time and it was a trip highlight this time. simple local food executed well and balanced well. If I'm back in Honolulu I will absolutely be back!

Town is delicious and good fro your conscience, since they make a point of sourcing with local ingredients. But be prepared to pay a steep price for the dishes - buying fresh local produce and meats is difficult in Hawaii and comes with a price.

Our dinner here was excellent: a varied menu, knowledgeable and friendly staff, and sophisticated Hawaiian influenced food. Popular with locals this place buzzes with happy people enjoying their dinners. Casual dress. Need reservations. Decor is Hawaiian nature. Only drawback is that it's quite noisy.

Town Restaurant several years ago was a very goo restaurant. With the ownership changes, the restaurant has changed for the worse. The service was slow and the prices are expensive for average food.

When we travel I like to find great local favorites and we did just that at Town. We all agreed to order several dishes to share and it was perfect. We started with the gnocchi. Melt in you mouth delicious. We ordered the chicken breast. Crisp on the outside tender inside served with fresh spinach and croutons with balsamic, yummy.... More

Fresh produce, great flavours and combinations. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here with friends. The beetroot, goats curd starter was simple but perfect. My pork was the most tender cutlet I've ever had, im assuming it was sous vide cause I just don't know how you can get it so spot on! The pasta my wife had was also delicious. Service... More

What an oasis in a desert full of fried food, mAssive portions that are very average, and mass production. Town saved me... Gorgeous service, sensational food. My gnocchi with cabbage, tomato and baby corn wAs a taste sensation, as was the bread, the clams, the steak and even the vegetarian plate for my vego brother-in-law... I cannot stop thinking about...

Doesn't look like much from the front, but the food quality is the second to none. Worth the trek to experience the fresh and unique food they have on offer, with the menu literally changing each day,

Parking in this neighborhood is always a challenge, if dining prime time, best to choose a municipal lot and walk a block and a half. I knew reservations are highly recommended even on a Monday night. But it was pretty late for Honolulu dining standards, 8:45pm, so we easily found a spot nearby, walked in, no reservation, seated right away... More
