Very close to nearby hotels, walking distance, and a place I recommend eating if you are desiring a change of pace and scenery from hotel fare. Good food, friendly service and nice atmosphere. Pricey, but what isn't in Hawaii where tourists are majority of the guests. You should use Open Table to ensure no wait and prompt service.

The food here was wonderful. I tried Poke for the first time and was surprised by the freshness. But seeing as it is in Hawai'i I would expect nothing less. The prices are a bit high, however, it is located righr across the street from Aulani so this wasn't a big surprise. I definitely recommend this place if you're in... More

We ate here on a Sunday evening, we hadnt reserved so had to wait about an hour at the bar upstairs. There was a great atmosphere and everyone appeared to be enjoying the food. Whereas the menu choice is not massive, there is something for everyone. The portion size is large so for those with a normal appetite you shouldnt... More

Great food, staff and atmosphere! We went here with 13 family members for my nephews birthday and the food was great and they made sure to accommodate two of my gluten allergy family members. The craft beer selection is fairly big and the waitresses and bartenders were very knowledgeable.

Had lunch there today. Our server was jolly on the spot. Ice tea was replaces three times always before it was needed. Food was great. Clean and great environment. Everyone said to go there and they were right. I highly recommend for a leisure lunch or dinner.

Went to visit on a business trip recently and the happy hour was just regular to me. The prices were good for the food but the food was average. The best thing I enjoyed was the garlic Parmesan fries. The pizza was average. It is nice spot to hang out and socialize. The server said she was going to split... More

We walked from the Marriott Ko Olina for dinner. Outdoor seating and lively atmosphere. There was a guitar ensemble with family friendly atmosphere. I ordered the Kale salad. My husband ordered the cucumber/avocado salad with chicken. My kale was the best kale salad I have tasted. My husbands salad was the best he has tasted. The only deterrent was $36... More

Sat outside which was nice, they had live music, had the poke tacos and the bourgeois pizza which is the lobster pizza with mushrooms, not bad but greasy. Poke mediocre. It's what you expect to pay when you re in a resort area. Staff was very nice.
