We enjoyed brunch here on our last trip to Waikiki. Make sure you try the crab eggs benedict. The wait staff were friendly and attentive, the atmosphere was amazing. I would think reservations are a necessity. It is expensive for brunch, so be prepared, other then that it is perfect! Have not been at the restaurant for any other meal but will definitely try dinner on our next visit to Waikiki in February 2014.

This was a perfect setting, complete with ocean view, and live music playing in outdoor courtyard near us. First, the service was some of the best we've had anywhere! This was a special occasion honeymoon dinner, complete with romantic ambiance. When calling for reservations, the hostess was exceptionally gracious. We actually stopped by on a walk in afternoon prior to dinner to check it out, and the hostess showed us around on a little tour. The food itself was an amazing seafood pot, and snapper special. This place is it!! Go if you have the chance.

The Japanese flair is pretty untouchable here but the American cuisine is fabulous too.

I loved the Signature Onaga (red snapper) with shitake mushrooms, ginger, green onions, chinese parsley. The hostess gave me the recipe!

I felt like a ViP here and was honored to meet the chef as well.

I only regret that I turned down their famous coconut cake.

Imagine perfectly prepared seafood with an ocean view and Hawaiian music from a live trio playing in the background. You'll find it here, but make sure to get a reservation, as they book up fast.

Our group of six dined on the "seafood boat" special and a variety of starters.None of us were disappointed.

The service was impeccable and the ambiance superb.

Ask for a table by the railing and enjoy both the sunset and the musicians from the hotel's outdoor bar below.
