This is my favorite fine dining restaurant on the island so far. The food, service, location, atmosphere, and wine are all subperb. They bake their own artisan bread and make their own olive oil infusions. I love the mussels and truffle gnocci.

Went here for my wedding anniversary. Very nice, modern restaurant. We got the tasting menu which was a good value at $65 (plus $20 more for paired wines). Food was really top quality, creative combinations of flavors, and very local ingredients. Everything was very, very fresh. The amuse bouche was a fig "from the tree out front" the server told...

We were excited to visit Town; however, we were a little disappointed with the service and food. The hand cut pasta is a definite must. I had opah (moonfish) which was overcooked and dry.

Always an innovative and terrific menu. Fresh ingredients prepared with skill. Attentive but unobtrusive service. Great cocktails. Town is a short walk from our house, we live in Palolo, just up the hill. This or Mud Hen Water across the street are go to choices for special occasions.

Being a foodie and having done research on where to eat while on Oahu, Town had made our list of places we must eat. I had particular interest in a basil leaf cocktail I had read about. We arrived on that hot day, sat on the patio and promptly ordered two different cocktails (one basil leaf of course), both of... More

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.
