I think Town has done what they set out to do: create an interesting, farm to market restaurant in a world of fast food and similarity. We were welcomed by the hostess and seated near the windows leading to the street, allowing the breeze to blow by us, as well as the racket from the busy street. The menu is... More

This was my second visit to Town, and like last time, I left satisfied. Cool place, great service, reasonable wine prices and a clear focus on healthy (and good) food. Had the Opa (pretty good), mushroom side (very good) and the apple banana cream pie (very good). Looking forward to coming back again!

It's about 10-15 minutes from the middle of Waikiki depending on traffic. An attractive restaurant from the outside in a real sketch neighborhood which looks like it's trying to gentrify. Got the feeling most of the customers were locals. I was a solo diner and the service was excruciatingly slow. Don't know why. Their specialty seems to be gnocchi, but... More

You can taste the freshness in every bite. I had the fried oyster po'boy and my friend had the pickled grapefruit salad with fish. Portions were generous. The signature Town lemonade with parsley and honey was refreshing. I also tried the hand pounded pa'i'ai, a fried poi which was crispy crusty on the outside and soft mochi-like in the middle....

We try to find restaurants out of the downtown, Waikiki and Chinatown area. This one is a keeper. We had the tasting menus since we had not been at the restaurant before. Each selection was amazing. The wine pairing was very good. None of the courses was huge but all came together for a very satisfying meal.

We enjoy Town for a light bite and their lovely cocktails when we can shake loose of the kids. The drinks can be outstanding, served in a small, charming spot, which can get overcrowded.

My friend took me for lunch at this spot and I loved the food. The menu is made up daily based on fresh, local ingredients. The service was great. This place is simply, but tastefully furnished. I totally enjoyed my dining experience and will definitely return.

I heard a ton of great things about this place and was anxious to try it, however it was mediocre. The staff was friendly, but my order was wrong initially, and the meal itself was just okay. Overall: expected more.

We went because we wanted to escape the craziness of Wakikii and were getting tired of sushi. Town was our favorite meal of our trip, excellent food and wonderful service. The menu is a mix of Italian with organice and Hawaiian touches. Very creative with interesting flavor profiles. My friend had the tasting menu which was a great option. You... More

Be prepared for excellent food with out all the formality that usually accompanies such offerings. All in our party raved about their meal. I enjoyed the chicken leg with macadamia nuts, roasted grapes, greens and prosciutto. A tasty amaretto sour was a wonderful refreshment to compliment the food.
