“Amazing!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

We had the Chef's Taste of the Classics, and it was amazing. Every course built on the last perfectly, and each wine paired perfectly. The service was efficient and polite, and all of the staff seemed very knowledgable about the menu. This is definitely in my top 5 dining experiences of all time....Maybe top 3!

I would recommend a reservation here. We arrived at 5:15 on a Monday, and the restaurant was quickly filled up by 6pm.

“Delicious Food- Service Needs Help”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

You are going to pay a lot of money for this dinner but the food is delicious. Unfortunately our delicious meal was not the best because of the lack of attention our waiter gave to our table. I even had to ask them to open the bottle of wine we purchased because they had already served our food. For the type of restaurant this is, it is too bad the service didn't live up to the name.

“Our favorite restaurant”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Alan Wong's restaurant is our top stop for food in Honolulu. I always get the Chef's 7 course dinner with accomanying wine flights. The dessert and designer coffee end a great evening.

“Good place to go for Lunch and Dinner”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

we went to this Restaurant awhile back but we liked it. they have a lot of selection to choose from. good salads. The only thing we did not like it was a bit far from our hotel and we had to get a taxi to take us there.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

I am confused when I read some of the other reviews for Alan Wong's. While others rave, my husband and I were disappointed. We had read in TripAdvisor comments to request a table in the lanai where it would be quieter so we did. We ordered the tasting menu with wine pairings. Unfortunately, while the service was very good, we could not hear the description of courses or wine because of the noise! The food was overrated by our standards, and I would have rather bought an airline ticket to Oahu for the price of dinner. The ambiance is lacking, what view there is from the lanai underwhelming. There are some outstanding open air restaurants on the beach which is where we headed for the rest of our week. Maybe it was just an off night. Good luck with your experience should you decide to try it.
