“Great dinner spot”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

We have lived on Oahu for three years and this place is one our favorites. The gardens are beautiful with the mountains in the back drop. The food and service are great. We have brought several family and friends from the mainland to this spot when they visit and they have all enjoyed the experience. Be sure to get there soon after it opens or there be a long wait before you get seated (really the only part I do not like about this place)

“A Beautiful Experience”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

We were told we MUST go here, so we did. Arrived early, seated within 5 minutes. I was told to order Prime Rib. It was huge! Could have easily fed a family of 4. Had Prime Rib Sandwiches for the next 2 days. No one complained. The view from our table was perfect. The service was perfect. Everything was a vision of beauty from the food to the scenery. Everyone was friendly and genuine. Highly recommended.
Be sure to take a walk in the gardens after dinner.

“Amazing Prime Rib”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Ate here with a party of business colleagues on a recent weekday evening. We made a point to arrive early (before 6 PM), knowing they don't take reservations. The place was already very crowded, and it took about 20 minutes for our party f 8 to be seated. There were still several tables for 4 available at that time, but they filled up fast. We all had the amazing 24 ounce Prime Rib, which was truly outstanding. Not only was it a huge portion, it was also probably the most flavorful and most tender prime rib I've ever had. Four more of our colleagues, who were about 20 minutes behind us, were told when they arrived that the prime rib was all gone -- so if you want this, go early. This is an open air restaurant with a pleasant view over the Haiku Gardens, but it was rather warm and a little more air movement would have helped. If you get there early you can also get a table with a view over the gardens, but most tables don't have this view. This was a memorable meal and I would definitely go back to try other menu items, but I can't recommend the prime rib highly enough.

“Paradise at its best.”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

The view. The food. The drinks. The The atmosphere... There is no other place that I love as much as Haleiwa Joe's! I saved napkins with their logo, and the memories and pictures from the place make me warm during cold Ukrainian winters. Never miss out a chance to visit this restaurant. Do indulge.
