This is an exceptional restaurant in a so-so location. Extremely expensive but worth the price, for one time, for a special occasion. Went for my hubby's birthday and they painted a Happy Birthday note on a plate with icing and gave him a commemorative banner as well. Very excellent service, but a bit uppity - not a relaxed atmosphere - a formal one indeed.

this place is a relic from the 90's,
with cheesy deco (think image stock Starbucks would blush to hang in its cafés),
unsurprising food which is overpriced,
but the worst is the wine - 18 dollars for a glass of very average white wine.
better to find a good food truck !

Alan Wong's was the best restaurant we visited in Oahu. The atmosphere was great and the service was inpeccable. We enjoyed the IPAD as menus, with photos of each dish as we were ordering.

My husband and I both had an appetizer and entree and found that the portions were generous for a fine dining restaurant. All food was perfectly fresh and absolutely delicious. We highly recommend choosing from this large and amazing coffee selection. We were too full for dessert :).

I highly recommend this restaurant!! We will definitely return on our next vacation to Hawaii.

Alan Wong's? Yes, Please! This is always my first fine dining choice... I have been here many, many times for family dinners and with friends and have never been disappointed. Their fixed menus with wine pairings are superb! Everything from their appetizers to their entrees to their desserts to their drinks are just perfectly executed and, of course the service is top-notch. I highly recommend trying their fresh poi with their fish entrees! Omg, so good! I'd dine here every night if I could!

Was previously in Honolulu a bit over a year ago. Dined at Alan Wongs and Longhis on that trip and assessed both to be excellent. On an early May trip did each restaurant again on back to back nights. If interested, see review for Longhis under that restaursant.

On this visit to Alan Wongs, like the last, we were seated at bar-like arrangement overlooking and adjacent to the kitchen (an excellent seating choice if you are interested in watching professionals prepare excellent meals. The placement provided an excellent opportunity to interact with and observe the culinary staff at work. This is a fascinating experience -- with a kitchen staff of between 12-15 men and women who present the air of confidence and pure culinary professionalism. They also interact with patrons seated at the bar, and listening to their accomplishements and aspirations is a heart-warming experience. They are for the most part a group of young, well trained and highly motivated young professionals doing what they appear to love -- preparing excellent cusine for the restaurant's many patrons.

The product they serve is excellent -- and the staff that delivers it is both efficient and courteous . Their service is prompt, professional and personal.

Alan Wongs has earned its place as my preferred and highest rated restaurant in Honolulu.
