Stage

Overall Review: CorkCorkCorkCork

Service: The service was fantastic at Stage restaurant in Hawaii. The waiters were extremely attentive and we didn’t have to wait for water, bread, wine or any of our needs during the dinner. Our waiter was also very knowledgeable about wine and the menu and really helped us narrow down our decisions during our meal.

Food: Yummy! the food has fenise, creativity and is delicious. Its so rare in Honolulu to be surprised by the food and you are while dinning at Stage at the Design Center. The menu is Scandinavian-m0dern with a touch of Fusion. In addition to a prefix menu  they also have a terrific happy hour Monday-Friday from 5pm-7pm. All the menu items are only $5 each and they also have various drink specials starting at $8. PLUS on Tuesday all bottles of wine are 50% OFF which is hard to beat. They also start you off with an Amuse Bouche which is always lovely and surprising!

Favorite Dishes: Stage Hamachi Sashimi (inspiring dish!), Beet & Goat Cheese Salad, Braised Short Ribs, Chicken, King Salmon, 4 course tasting menu (with entree’s of Miso Butterfish & Filet Mignon pictures of menu below), and of course the wine & bread!

Atmosphere: The ambiance at Stage is nice. The restaurant has high ceilings and interesting artwork. One of the most unique pieces of the restaurant are that they have different tables and chairs which is kind of artistic and trendy. The restaurant has wall to wall windows which overlook Kapiolani blvd which isn’t the best view but does give the atmosphere a spacious feeling.

Consistency: Both times we have gone were delicious but the menu had changed pretty dramatically so we promise to update this section again when we go again to keep you posted.

Parking: Parking is easy at the Honolulu Design Center. Its free which is always nice and has a full floor of parking available. If you go for a busy event night you might have more problems but during times like this they typically add a valet services. No need to get a validation at the restaurant as you dont need to take a ticket upon entry.

Dave & Busters

Overall Review: CorkCorkCork

Service: The service is not bad at Dave & Busters at Ward Centers but its all about timing and location. The bottom restaurant has pretty good service and is more formal while the upstairs is not quite as reliable but it is almost like an extension of the bar, much more casual. Regardless where you sit the staff is usually pretty friendly and young (this isnt always a good thing). We have had some pretty bad serivcie as well… but its pretty rare so we will leave the gorey details out.

Food: Dave & Busters certainly isn’t going to win any awards for mouth watering food but it is consistant. It’s like dinner food, its good but its not something you fantasize about later and can’t wait to go and order again. The typical things you find on the menu are… (you guessed it) Hambergers, Fish, Sandwiches, Salads, Ribs, Fries, Wings, Steaks… bar food that could use a bit more seasoning overall! The best part is that there is something for everyone. They do have happy hour and some special events like Taco Tuesday which is fun and worth checking out for some drinks, music and grinds with friends. 

Favorite Dishes: French Fries, Spinach Dip, Fire Grilled Salmon, Baby Back Ribs, Chicken Fingers (for the kids) and Apple Pecan Salad.

AtmosphereThe atmosphere is nice both upstairs and downstairs. Downstairs dinning is quieter and nice and bright with large glass windows and high ceilings. Upstairs is more of a game room / bar feel like a dark whole in the wall. The seating upstairs is booth style and is more of what you would expect at a traditional arcade. Dave’n’Busters also has a top roof bar which is very nice and tropical with a cool breeze and partially covered roof.

Consistency: They are very consistency average. You get what you are expecting most of the time but there have been a few low points in the past 5 years, and fewer high points were they surprise you with something “out of the box” delicious.

Parking: Parking is one of the best reasons to go to Dave’n’Busters at Ward Centers. They have ample parking at Ward Centers for free. If you get frustrated on a busy weekend (the movie theater is right next to the restaurant so some weekends can get a bit crazy) for $5 you can park in valet on the second floor of the parking structure.

Harbor Pub & Pizza

Overall Review: CorkCorkCork

Service: The Service was average at Harbor Pub & Pizza. The waitress was friendly and remembered our order which is all I guess we can really hope for a hole in the wall bar. The place could have used a good scrub down (specially the bathrooms yikes!) but overall it was ok. That being said, we have had friends who have had pretty bad service so its really a crap shoot.

Food: The food is ok at Harbor Pub & Pizza in Waikiki. They are known for their pizza (hence the name of the establishment) and what’s nice is you can order a half / half of different kinds of pizza so everyone at the table wins! They also serve brunch which is nice but if you go we would recommend sticking to the pizza & salads.

Favorite Dishes: Spinach & Garlic Pizza, BBQ Chicken Pizza, and Greek Salad

Atmosphere: Ok to be perfectly honest its a dive bar. Nothing fancy about it and thats ok because it doesn’t promise to be. They have a small bar and about 5-7 tables in the back. There are a few large TV’s which they play sports and surfing on so its a good place to go if you are super hung over and want to hid from the world and not be seen my anyone you know.

Consistency: We have been a few times for drinking and its consistently a hole in the wall. However, it’s fun and has a good crowed. This is the type of place you go for a very low key drink and snack and you def get what your expecting as long as you don’t expect to much!

Parking: Harbor Pub & Pizza has validated parking or you can park in metered spaces across the street close to the Ala Moana Harbor.

Chart House Waikiki

Overall Review: CorkCorkCorkCorkCork

Service: The service was applaudable at the Chart House in Waikiki. From the hostess to the table back the staff really was professional, friendly and worked like a well oiled machine. We never had empty water glasses or dishes on the table the whole night and it was really refreshing. They also gave us a complementary Mudd Pie since it was me and my wifes one year anniversary which was delicious and very thoughtful.

Food: The food was delicious and we ate every single morsel of food they put in front of us. The menu has traditional items you would expect to have at a steakhouse including lots of seafood and proteins. The food was really flavorful and worth the price (the Alaskan crab legs where a bit steep at $66.50 for 4 claws but they where super tasty and if you are looking to treat yourself for a special occasion go for it). We recommend getting a few appetizers and sharing with the table to try a few different items. One nice thing to point out is each entree comes WITH a starter salad or soup and side dishes one starch and one vegetable which is really nice and not a-typical for steakhouses who charge ala cart for these items. Finally they also have happy hour from opening to 7pm and 10pm to closing so its a great place for afterwork or late night pupus and drinks with friends.

Favorite Dishes: Sizzling Szechawn Shrimp, Escargot, Whole fried fish (yummy could have eaten two), Crab Claws (great but very expensive $5 per a bit), and the Chart House Waikiki Mudd Pie (best we have ever had!).

Atmosphere: The atmosphere at Chart House is just fantastic. The restaurant is right on the water and overlooks the yacht harbor in Waikiki. Its beautiful to watch the boats during the day and at night. The decor is old hawaiianan and the inside of the restaurant is dressed in warm wood tones. Some nights they have live entertainment and ALWAY a full bar! One positive note is that the restaurant is large enough so intimate diners don’t have to be bothered by the rowdy bar goers.

Consistency: We haven’t been to eat at the chart house in a long time but have had good pupus and drinks in the past few years. However, with this surprisingly great dinning experience it won’t be long until we go again.

Parking: The chart house has a parking garage which validates and they also have metered parking out front.

Cha Cha Cha Salsaria

Overall Review: CorkCorkCork

Service: The service is very good at Cha Cha Cha Salsaria in Hawaii Kai. The staff is really genuine and super nice. Both times we have been so far they where very attentive and you could really feel that they where excited to service you. Unfortunately the manager we can’t say the same thing about. We had two coupons which we thought expired in 2012 but turned out to expire in 2011. It was 5 weeks expired and we asked if we could use just one of the two by any chance (totaling $25). We understand they are expired but we ordered plenty of food and drinks and they already got the money from us for the GC’s so its not like it would have hurt them financially to let us use at least one of them. The server was so sweet and really stuck up for us. The manager however had a stick up his you know what!

Food: The food is hit or miss at Cha Cha Cha. The cobb cajun shrimp salad was terrific and the salsa was to die for (both types both Pineapple and regular) where fresh and had a really good bite. The enchilada and tacos however where pretty average. The enchilada casing was kind of gummy and even the salsa verde wasn’t very memorable. They do have a Happy Hour Monday-Friday 3pm-6pm and brunch on Sundays which is nice so maybe come for drinks (the perfect margarita was terrific) and just enjoy some pupus and the view. 

Favorite Dishes: Cobb Cajun Shrimp Salad, Free Salsa, Margarita

Atmosphere: The atmosphere at Cha Cha Cha Salsaria is by far the best thing going for this restaurant. It’s located on the Harbor in Hawaii Kai right next to The Shack and is just beautiful. The restaurant has both inside and outside seating and guests are invited to grab a menu and find there own seats which is nice and feels empowering. The inside has mexican themed artwork and a cute little bar. It’s absolutely a good place to meet friends for a casual bite or drinks while enjoying the sunset and beautiful Hawaii weather.

Consistency: Both times we have been the margaritas and shrimp salad where just delicious. The other items where nothing special but may have been consistent we are not sure because we didn’t give them a second chance. We hear that brunch is good so will try that and update this review.

Parking: Cha Cha Cha’s has free parking at the Hawaii Kai shopping plaza so you shouldnt have trouble getting a spot unless you go on the weekend and fight with Safeway shoppers.

Jade Dynasty

Overall Review: CorkCorkCorkCork

Service: The service was good at Jade Dynasty. Our waiter was a little pushy but in a nice way. He was attentive and went out of his way to let me know all the items on the menu that contained MSG which I really appreciated and made me trust this chinese restaurant above others in town. The last time we went , however, the food took forever to arrive! after about 50 minutes we had only recieved 2 dishes and had to ask for the rest in a doggy bag to make an appoinment.

Food: The food was good at Jade Dynasty overall. The vegetables where really well seasoned and cooked. For lunch they have traditional dim sum selections and you can also order off the menu. For dinner there is no dim sum but they have lots of  items include chicken (lemon, cold, general tao’s, kung po, etc), peking duck, noodles, rice, pork, seafood (fresh crab, shrimp, prawns, whole steamed fish, lobster etc) , tofu and of course chinese vegetable dishes! We found the food very tasty overall but the most memorable items where the Choy Sum and Stir-Fry String Beans as they where extra crispy and fresh. 

Favorite Dishes: Dim Sum – Fresh shrimp & spinach dumplings, signature shrimp dumplings, seafood bean curd roll, steamed BBQ pork buns, Dinner – Stir-fry minced meat with string beans and chii sauce (yummy!), Choy Sum with garlic sauce, and the curry Singaporean rice noodles.

Atmosphere: The restaurant is very clean and grand inside. The ceilings are extremely high and decorated with chandlers giving the restaurant an open feeling as well as reduce the noise factor when busy during the dim sum rush. The decor is black, gold and red and they have very limited artwork inside. The restaurant is large overall and has plenty of tables for larger groups as well as booth seating, in fact they have 7 private rooms available making this a great place to book a party!

Consistency: We have only been twice so far, once for dim sum and once for dinner… so far so good on the food! the owners of the Jade Dynasty also own 20 restaurants in Hong Kong so they must know what they are doing. However, the second time the service was super slow sooo hopefully that was just a fluke

Parking: Jade Dynasty is located at the Ala Moana shopping center so there is plenty of free parking at your finger tips. The restaurant is located close to Mai Tai bar and the parking right outside Norstroms on the third level. We recommend parking there and then taking the elevator or escalator next to Pearl to the restaurant on the fourth floor (3 above ground).

Luibueno’s

Overall Review: CorkCorkCorkCork

Service: The service was a bit slow at Luibueno’s in Haleiwa but since the restaurant is in the North Shore  I guess its more normal and we should cut them a little slack. They are a bit less “rushed” on the country side of the island so I guess its to be expected. The staff was very nice / friendly  and they did get our order right. The only really strange thing was you have to wait outside of the restaurant to be seated which was a little awkward.

Food: The food was a traditional mix of Mexican & Spanish. The menu consists of a large variety of Paellas, Ceviche, Salads, Soups, Burritos, Quesadillas, Entrees and of course TACOS! The menu has lots of fresh fish and seafood items which is nice to see specially since we are in Hawaii. The beans and rice could have used a little seasoning but the seafood was very fresh and well worth the price! They also offer Benuo Happy Hour deals on drinks and a lite menu selection everyday between 3-5pm & 9:30-10:30pm so try it out after work!

Favorite Dishes: Fisherman’s Warf Tacos (without the white sauce) but we would recommend just ordering two taco’s ala cart instead of the plate because we where not to impressed with the rice & beans.

Atmosphere: We really enjoyed the atmosphere at Luibueno’s. It has a unique feel with wooden tables both facing the window on an upper level, interior seating on the lower level and bar seating. Each wall has very nice artwork and a good flow to the layout. The restaurant isn’t very big but they do a good job of positioning the tables so many people can be seated without feeling really crammed or like you are sitting on top of your neighbor. The high ceilings add a nice ambiance to the establishment and make it a pleasant place to have a drink or grab a bite with your friends or family.

Consistency: This was the first time we have been to Luibueno’s because we got a Living Social coupon but we will update this section next time we visit which we are sure to because the fish tacos where just delicious.

Parking: They have free parking at Luibeno’s outside in the Haleiwa town center shopping area.

Mai Tai’s Bar

Overall Review: CorkCorkCork

Service: The service is hit or miss at Mai Tai’s Bar in the Ala Moana Shopping Center but typically (during the day and early evening) its pretty good. Only when it gets late at night does it get a bit harder to get good service as it gets so packed. That being said, more than one time has our pizza come out cold or later than all the other dishes but whenever you complain they always are quick to rectify the mistake by getting you a replacement item fired ASAP and then taking the dish off your bill which is really excellent service and absolutely does make you feel alot better about the whole situation. The reason we think is because they share a kitchen with Forest Gump so the waiters have to travel a farther distance between retrieving the food and servicing the guests.

Food: The food is good for typical bar food and they have a playful assortment of local favorites and standard bar items like seafood appetizers including popcorn & coconut shrimp, ceviche, ahi, sliders, salads, sandwiches , and great flatbread pizzas on the menu. For a great deal on drinks and pupu’s you have two chances for Happy Hour everyday from 4pm-7pm and then again from 8pm-11pm. Happy Hour deals include $4 Martinis, Wine, on the Rocks $3-$8 Pitchers of Beer and $5 select appetizers

Favorite Dishes: Flatbread Pizzas, Avocado Spring Rolls, Sliders, and Edamame

Atmosphere: The atmosphere at Mai Tai’s is wonderful. They have the perfect outdoor but indoor seating and it really relaxing and a great place to enjoy the outdoors and beautiful Hawaii weather during the day and the night. The tables and decorations have a Tiki & Hawaiiana theme and the waitresses all sport matching aloha wear outfits which brings the whole ambiance of the restaurant up a notch.

Consistency: Mai Tai’s is pretty consistently good. As mentioned before they also have a tendency to bring out the food not completely hot so be prepared for that (and remember to send it back!). Other than that they have great food, a full bar and a consistently cool atmosphere to be enjoyed!

Parking: Mai Tai’s has lots of free parking because it is located on the top floor of the Ala Moana Shopping Center making this a great place to meet after-work or anytime for some drinks and pupu’s with friends.

II Lupino Trattoria & Wine Bar

Overall Review: CorkCorkCork

Service: The service was average at ll Lupino in Waikiki. Both times we went to this restaurant the staff was friendly but very slow to respond to our needs. For example the first time we went the waiter never came back to fill up our wine glasses and we also asked for another menu to order additional items and he forgot twice (was missing in action for most of the meal). The other time we requested Parmesan cheese and peppers for our pizza and waited for over 10 minutes for the items to arrive (by the time we had eaten half our entrees) and the excuse was “we had to grade fresh Parmesan for you” well if its an Italian restaurant we would recommend doing that each day since its pretty probable someone will want it! Overall don’t go to this establishment if you are in a rush or not willing to wait for food, drinks and everything else you may want.

Food: The food was good at II Lupino and is the new Italian restaurant from the chef / creator of  Wolfgang Steakhouse. The food was good but not each dish knocked our socks off by any means. The pasta was the most memorable of all the food and we can’t wait to go back and try some different ones from the menu. The salad was extremely boring and the first time we went we ordered the white pizza (with spinach and mushrooms)  which wasn’t our favorite, however, the last time we went our friend ordered one for the table and asked for them to drizzle some truffle oil over the top and it was 100% better. (NOTE: if you love prosciutto for $8 they will add fresh slices to any pizza).  They also have Happy Hour specials – Pizza’s for $10, Wine by the glass for $5, Beer $4 and snazzy cocktails for $7 between 3:00 pm – 6:30 pm daily so try it out after work for some Pau Hana with your friends.

Favorite Dishes: Prosciutto Panini (for lunch), White Pizza (ask for truffle oil!) Linguine alle Vongole with(Linguine with Clams) served with White Wine, Ravioli all’Anatra (Slow-cooked Duck Ravioli with a Duck Ragu and Parmesan cheese) Yummy! Our recommendation just stick to the Pastas and you can’t go wrong.

Atmosphere: The atmosphere is very nice at II Lupino Italian Restaurant. They have both ample indoor and outdoor seating both are extremely nice and have a causal yet elegant decor. The outdoor seating is lovely because it overlooks the Royal Hawaiian Gardens which are beautiful. The color scheme of the restaurant is a stunning yellow and black with rock walls creating a truly memorable dinning experience.

Consistency: We have been twice so far and both times the pasta was delicious and the rest of the items where OK but certainly nothing to write home about. We haven’t been for breakfast or dinner thus far so will update this section after we experience it first hand.

Parking: The Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center has a parking lot (for cars under 6.2 feet tall) and II Lupino validates  so the parking is free for 3 hours after you eat which is nice if you wish to do a little shopping or take a stroll in Waikiki while in town.
