We really loved the food. My hubby had the prefix, I didn't as didn't think I would like several things so I ordered off the regular menu. I tried all his food and we both thought everything was very good. The service was also great. So glad we picked this for our special vacation dinner.

What a surprise to discover that the food (as well as the presentation) was on par with top New York City restaurants. Everything was delicious. We sat next to the windows and had a great city view. A memorable evening.

Our dinner here was the best meal we have ever eaten in Hawaii. Unlike many restaurants that boast of "creative" cuisine, this one serves food you can enjoy eating. The unusual combinations of tastes really work!

The cuisine is billed as "Hawaiian regional," meaning that it draws inspiration from all the various national and ethnic groups in the Islands. Others might label it "Asian fusion." No matter. Foodies come from all over to taste it.

We were told the smartest approach was to order the $85 tasting menu, which offers some of the most popular dishes in the restaurant and also saves a lot of confusion. This turned out to be excellent advice, and the menu was a decent value as well.

Useful factoid: This menu can be at least somewhat flexible. The night we were there, my partner couldn't eat one item on the menu, and I just didn't like it. The waiter happily offered to substitute another course.

Service is very efficient and friendly. The atmosphere isn't particularly elegant, but it is pleasant. The restaurant is located in a surprisingly nondescript part of Honolulu. An energetic person could walk from Waikiki, but most people seem to prefer the 10-minute cab ride, which costs $10 or so. Bottom line: If you're planning to eat in one really memorable restaurant in Hawaii, this would be a great candidate.

Alan Wong's is one of the best restaurants on the island!
I highly recommend the Chopped Ahi Sashimi and Avocado Salsa Stack and Da Bag as a starter. For an entree, I loved the Short Rib(Soy Braised and Grilled "Kalbi" Style.) It was amazing.
Excellent wine and cocktail list.

Out for a family dinner and once again this place shines , the private label Chardonnay is great , the food is amazingly good and the service impeccable .
If you want an unforgettable experience this is it . Try for a table on the lanai and be sure to try da bag , a wonderful combination of seafood and pork .
