Would recommend getting there early, they open and 4:30 and it is first come first serve seating-no reservations. Restaurant fills up quickly. Well worth an early dinner the food is good and service is very friendly. Order some apps and have a good time!

Recommended by the resort we stayed at this place is truly delicious. Great customer service and great food! The view from our table was also fantastic. The location is tucked away in a residential area but very easy to find. You can't tell from the parking lot how big it rally is until you walk through the garden path a... More

This was recommended by our rental hosts. It is tucked away in a residential area. Well worth trying to find it. Thank you Waze. Atmosphere and food were wonderful. A little pricey but worth the splurge. We sat at a table overlooking the gardens. I had one of the specials (fish with asparagus) and my husband had a local fish... More

I hadn't been here in ten years (since I moved away) and I am so glad that it's...1. Still here 2. Still beautiful 3. Still delicious!! The coconut shrimp is my favorite. It seemed pricey this time so I opted for the cheaper appetizer version, which almost has as many shrimp as my husband's dinner portion. The restaurant overlooks a... More

My family and I have dined at Haleiwa Joe's Haiku Gardens twice now, and it's definitely one of our most favorite restaurants in all of Oahu. The scenery alone is worth a trip - gorgeous greenery and native Hawaiian tropical vegetation - which are viewed from a treetop level dining area, open to the beautiful breezes. The food is really...

We had a very good evening of dining and drinking with friends on our. The food is ample and very tasty. Every dish we had was excellent. Great service. We ate outdoors, which was very special. Nice feel and atmosphere to the restaurant. Highly recommended

Stopped here for a bite on our trip around the island. For us service is everything, and it was fair. We got there around 2 and the lunch crowd had left but, service was still very slow. When we received our appetizers, they were over cooked and dry. For our money we'll try someplace else next time.

Aloha Eileen, I think you may have the wrong restaurant since this fantastic restaurant that I visit regularly is not open for lunch. More

Ribs are great! They don't take reservations so get there early for a seat at the edge. The restaurant is perched on a hill looking down over a pond. It is popular and with good reason. If you want to take a visitor to a place that has the laid back ambiance and friendliness of Hawaii, this is it.

Stopped by He'eia State Park and saw this was close by. The fish special was excellent, simply excellent. The cheesecake was unbelievable and everyone should try this. The staff was attentive, intelligent, and very kind.

I love coming here for happy hour during the weekdays. My favorite Li Hing Margarita is only $6 during happy hour and I love their calamari and escargot!! Those are definite must tries!! If you are very hungry, they have a massive and delicious prime rib that if you get there too late, they run out of.
