Very disappointing. I've been there before for lunch and dinner but not for a couple of years or more. Then it was pleasant with the food good and moderately interesting. Now we had swordfish and salmon and a small lobster bisque with no drink, dessert...More

The food was very good and the service was good also. The restaurant itself wasn't as busy as I would have thought. It's not as good as the Honolulu one we went to, but it was good overall.

Had a dinner in a private room here as part of a business function. The room was upstairs and in a very odd location - as you had to walk through the room to get to the washrooms. That's fine for our party, but we...More

I enjoyed an excellent meal here whilst attending Red Hat Summit in San Francisco. The food was fantastic – absolutely delicious, and a welcome addition to my portfolio of Asian culinary experiences. Too bad the service stunk. There was something incredibly delicate about this Hawaiian...More

The theme is Hawaiian. I came here for lunch and ordered a few appetizers and the butterfish. The calamari fries were mediocre and I would not recommend ordering. The butterfish was really good but nothing impressive.

I took clients there and they loved it. All of our food (and service) was excellent. We ordered appetizers, entree and the amazing molten lava cake (which has to be ordered early). It was really great. Recommend.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
