We were concerned that this might prove to be an expensive "tourist trap" but in fact, we would return even without the spectacular views. This was the most expensive meal we had on this trip but worth every cent. The food was spectacular as was the service.

We really enjoyed our meals. Happy hour selections for all, 1 being a New York Strip Steak, the other two had New York Strips with Scrimp. Started with salads, ended with desserts which were all homemade and excellent. My wife and I went to this place almost 12 years ago for dinner after we got married on the beach. Was... More

We went with friends for their Happy Hour but were disappointed with the selection of food to go along with the drinks. The rotating view of Waikiki is fun, but we didn't stay. The bartender was very entertaining!

Chris and Michael were outstanding in taking care of us. The Huli-Huli chicken was one of the best meals we've ever had. Not a single complaint about anything!! Terrific meal with an amazing view and superior service. Highly recommended!!

We had reservations for our anniversary. We arrived early and waited at the bar. Alvin waited on us and he is a joy to watch work. Super efficient, perfectionistic, artistic, and it's clear he loves his work. We were very impressed with him. The drinks were unusual but good. The apps were okay, and we decided not to have supper... More

Although we did not eat there, the view was great. Alvin was a great bartender. He improvised to make a drink that I requested. The menu looked great, unfortunately, my beau and I had had an appetizer less than an hour before. We will definitely eat there next time!

I HIGHLY recommend you go here in Waikiki! Loving gimmicks, I said to my husband "a REVOLVING restaurant? We MUST go." Bar none this was the best meal we had in Oahu. Not only is the view stunning, but the service and food was exceptional. We both assumed this would be a place where "you pay for the view" but... More

Went there for dinner , food was great , fantastic steak, great wiev , but the service was completely out of touch, tree times had to ask for cocktails, food was brought in before the drinks , very bad organisation skills. Prices very high.

Rotating restaurant was hardly noticeable but very good food - it was a perfect place for my birthday celebrations, prices are high but it was a special occasion - not the sort of place you would go every night - service was very good - need to book in advance but they have the cheek to charge $25 per head...

The view is matched by Executive Chef Lance Kosaka's Hawaii Regional Cuisine, where he presides over a kitchen dedicated to freshness, quality and is a strong supporter of infusing as much locally grown produce and fresh fish into our award-winning menu.
