“A nice dinner without being fantastic”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Tripadvisor needs a rating that is higher than average but lower than very good as I would rate this dinner as good, not average but not very good either. I came here because I was staying at the Iliaki around the corner and the owners had left vouchers for a free starter or dessert. Interestingly, my server had no idea about these vouchers but it was honoured none-the-less. Teh stuffed shrimp was nice. I had the "lite" portion, which, by the time it came with all the sides -bread, salad etc was plenty. The Key Lime Pie for dessert was lovely but again, the portion size was way too large - I find portion sizes everywhere in the US way too big and hate the food wastage that goes with this. My server was friendly and attentive. The restaurant was bustling and noisy but this added to the atmosphere although I can do without the loud tvs playing sport. As a single traveler, this was fine but probably better suited to larger groups than singles or couples.

“A gem on the water...”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

The Hawaiian seafood was knockout. Try the opah or ono if they're on the catch-of-the-day menu. Meanwhile, if you go late, sit in the lounge because the entertainment is pretty good.

“Worst meal in 2 weeks in HI.”
Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

Honestly if you are on your honeymoon or just looking for a nice dinner skip this place at all costs, especially if you are looking for a romantic meal. The restaruant allows their loud, trashy, and drunk patrons to literally swing their children in the air screaming and jump on the tables while you are trying to have dinner.

The waiter and manager never approached the table causing the ruckus and tried to apologize to us for the disgusting behavior of the other table by offering a coffee as compensation. The slap in the face was the ice cold coffee and a $10 reduction in the bill after we complained further.

The food does not justify the high prices they charge.

Skip this place and spend your money at a quality restaruant such as Alan Wongs.

P.S. Chart House was so bad it caused me to write my first Tripadvisor review as a thank you for all the guidance TA has provided throughout our honeymoon.

“Great Place”
Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

Great drinks, excellent food and top notch service. Meat, seafood and local cuisine are all good. The staff is genuinely interested in making sure you have a good dining experience. As an added bonus the view of the Yacht club and the marina is sublime!

“A good bet for steak and seafood”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

The Chart House in Waikiki is not affiliated with the Chart House chain of restaurants located throughout California, Florida, and several other states. It is a decent place to go for a steak or seafood, but of course being in Waikiki it's not exactly cheap. Nice ambience, dimly lit and suitable for an evening out with someone special.
