    Front statues was our 1st day here, rear statues is us leaving on our last evening. The food and service was great. View of the beach and ocean was magnificent.

    Fantastic service, delicious food and incredible drinks! This place gave us the true Hawaiian feel. The server was very knowledgeable of the menu and what was included in each dish. We reserved a table and had just a few minute wait to be seated. Food was served quickly and the server was attentive but not annoying. The view is breathtaking. Be prepared to spend some money though, but it was so worth it! Will definitely be back if I ever make it to Hawaii again!

    Such a beautiful restaurant, the vibe here is incredibly happy and definitely captures the Aloha spirit. The food was delicious and worth the price. Watching the sunset was astounding — eat here shortly before the sunset and you won’t regret it. Also, they ask if you’re visiting for an occasion and will give you a cute little dessert!

    Not a long wait! About 10 Minutes. Great food! We Had the salmon! Best I’ve ever had! And the prime rib! Highly recommended. Beach view from balcony. Great options for kids too! Ours had pasta and grilled cheese! Fries are really good too!

    The food and drinks are so unique and so delicious. Everything is fresh and beautifully made. I have had excellent customer service every time. Really decently priced. Such an enjoyable experience with beautiful views

    No vaccinations required or negative test they got us in quick with out door seating the service was great and the food was even better for the price. We got the steak and beef tacos with beans and rice. The rice was my least favorite a little on the dry side, outside of that the food was great, we will be back when we are in the neighborhood. I hope this helps you out and have a great day.

    Heard the music from the street and thought we would give it a try. As everything in waikiki, a bit expensive. That said we had drinks that were great, appetizers that were way better then expected. For main course we had the prime rib. It was all excellent. But what really made the evening was the atmosphere and live music.

    Great spot! Waterfront views of beach. Great, flavorful food. Cool drinks with souvenir glasses. Big salads. Vegetarian options. Located inside Aston Hotel which has valet parking (3hrs validation with dining at Tikis).

  • 5Roni H. 1 year ago
    Fantastic service with a menu to match! Our server Matt was so sweet and attentive, even reseated us when it started drizzling. There’s live music, fun lights, and delightful food. Definitely a must!

  • 5Stephen K. 1 year ago
    The Mai Tai is no joke. Great ambiance right across from Waikiki Beach. Live music. Great food. Highly recommended.

  • 5GeralynK R. 1 year ago
    Great service. We didn't have to wait long at all. Extensive tropical drink menu. Great food & fun atmosphere.

  • 5NEON D. 1 year ago
    Best Mai tai's in town they say and it's true!! Food was great as well.

  • 5William C. 1 year ago
    Food is decent -- I had the short ribs, which were not quite as decadently rich and fatty as Roy's or Alan Wong's, but still nice and tender. Drinks were great, and they didn't skimp on the alcohol! Server was super-friendly. The view from the lanai can't be beat! Live music can be hit or miss -- I prefer good Hawaiian music, but the evening we had dinner there, the guitarist was playing lots of bad '90s covers. Oh well, can't complain when you're in Hawaii!

    Food and drinks were good, weather and view were good, our server Ashley was good. But we showed up at 3:30 with a 4pm reservation for two and was very surprised to see they were only 20% full because I booked the reservation on their website just a few hours before and it was the only time available for the day. Bad for their business as I would guess a lot of people may choose another restaurant based on their lack of availability. See all the empty tables in the pictures.

    Great food and drinks. We had an amazing server named Jack. Really friendly and knew the whole menu. Had him twice once for breakfast and lunch. Highly recommended

    For my review I’ll mention only a bit about the food/atmosphere and then a note about parking, which I would’ve found useful to know going in. Food & atmosphere: this type of restaurant reminds me of something like a nicer Applebees, if Applebees had a Hawaiian theme and live music and maybe also has an ocean view. Our service was fine, food was decent though the Hawaiian-inspired, Asian fusion-seque cuisine isn’t my go-to so I don’t have a strong preference for it. Live music is a nice touch. This restaurant is part of the hotel and dining in includes validated valet parking for 2 or 3 hours, can’t remember which. Just note if you happen to be using a car rental service like Hui, the attendants can’t park your car because the service works off your cellphone. This is what happened to us, so instead the attendants helpfully suggested parking at the nearby Zoo whose parking seemed very reasonable at 1.50 an hour.

    We went here for dinner. We waited 15 minutes without a reservation. We came on the recommendation of a friend. We had some appetizers and drinks. The drinks are not watered down and you get your money's worth. For good, we had the beet and borsin cheese, Korean style tofu, and coconut shrimp. We ordered a second plate of the shrimp. There was live music and open air seating. This is a loud environment and fun. Service was good.

    Came in on a busy Thursday night a week before Christmas. We made a reservation ahead of time and got seated around our time on open table. Service was good even on a busy night. The food was pretty good and we had a decent nighttime view of Waikiki with some live music. Would come back for drinks.

    Good atmosphere and vibe with friendly staff. As visiting Australians, the food was pricey, but everywhere is in Hawaii at the moment with our dollar. Food was good but not outstanding but there's a nice "island vibe" to the menu. The 1944 Mai Tai with a souvenir glass is a tasty drink and gives you a nice souvenir. Would go back but maybe only for drinks next time, not the food.

  • 4Zachery S. 4 months ago
    Ordered the prime rib and full rack of ribs (there are 2 stacks of ribs on top of each other). Asked for prime rib medium rare and although it tasted very good it was more on the medium plus side, not much pink. Still very good though. Ribs were "pretty good" as my GF says and I agree but it's not a BBQ joint so what can you expect. Drinks are $20 a piece but you can keep the mugs on most those. Good views! Good service! Made a reservation. Spent $100 on 2 drinks and 2 meals.

    Walked in on a Thursday night, hostess mentioned it’d be about a half hour wait, which turned out to be 45 mins total. We were quickly sat and our server took our order within a timely manner. However, as there were more sat parties than servers, we ended up waiting over 20 minutes for food and even longer for our drinks. The macadamia crusted fish was nothing to write home about— it was dry and sat on top a bed of mashed potatoes. The rack of ribs was however, a generous portion with fries. The whole check came out to be approx. $80 USD before tip which is not worth it for the quality of food and service. The whole experience was quite unpleasant as the bar is located within the Aston Hotel and many guests were still swimming by the pool, which is the entrance to the bar and made it unsafe to travel between the escalator as floors were very wet and busy with hotel guest.
