After having a fabulous meal here last year we decided to revisit for New Years Eve. I am afraid to say it was the not the same experience we had last time. I can't even put it down to that it was busy as it wasn't.
Tuna appetizer we had should have been ice cold but instead was luke warm (quite alarming!). The surf and turf special was not good. Definitely not prime rib and they did not supply anything to crack the crab legs with.
The service was also poor. One of our table had a mojito which we had to send back as it was awful.
The table beside us also left after complaining to the manager.
Such a shame as it was a great spot in a great location.
Based on the above we won't be back.

We were directed to eastside for a casual dinner. Great food. Attentive wait staff. At around 630p live music started. Would definitely go back.
Favorite was the ahi poke appetizer.

Food was quite good, but there wasn't anything unique or distinctive about either the menu or the actual dishes we ordered. Ambiance is adequate at best, and the prices seemed high for what we got. Dessert was spectacular, all aflame and very showy (and tasty as well).

We saw great reviews on TripAdvisor & decided to give it a try. The food was well-prepared and flavorful. Service was quite good. Prices were reasonable for Hawaii. My only complaint was that the menu posted outside had a vegetarian option that was missing (& unavailable) once inside the restaurant.

The music drew us in. Service is very slow. Only street parking as far as we could tell. we loved the fish and chips. The salad was small and had some bacon which we could not have and was not on menu. Calamari was tough. The drinks were good but pricey. It was packed the night we were there.
