Everything's great except the food! Friendly fast comfortable and affordable. But menu descriptions are misleading and salad lettuce was not fresh and didn't include items advertised, i.e.: avaocado was tiny globs of brown mush, shrimp was not grilled and was tiny little pieces that didn't add up to even one shrimp. Portions were small. In the end, even though it... More

This is our third year visiting this restaurant after we found it a couple of years ago. We have found the food to be excellent and very reasonably prices. My wife and friend swear by the Macadamia encrusted chicken, while I prefer the braised ribs. Serving staff are excellent, professional and informative about the menu. I would not hesitate to...

Our experience this time at Cafe O'Lei was, really, very disappointing, not at all like previous visits which we enjoyed so much that we recommended the restaurant to friends. We had reserved a table, but we were seated in the centre of several large groups. It would be much nicer to place couples, especially those with reservations on the perimeter... More

We chanced upon this place after reading reviews. It was so busy that the only open places were at the bar, which still serves a full menu selection. My partner and I shared three specialty appetizers and a dessert. All three appetizers were delicious (Manoa Lettuce Wraps, Fried Calamari, and Café O'Lei Crab Cakes) and the Macadamia Nut Torte was... More

Great date night place! I really enjoyed the crab cakes. The rest of the meal was a real treat, not the cheapest place. But well worth it

10 years of eating at Cafe O'Lei and not one person in our party has ever been disappointed. They are very accommodating for seafood allergies. Great food! One of the best fish prices in town. Lunch or dinner... both are good! (Side note: sushi... at this time... was limited to certain days/times... so check that if you're hoping to try... More

My whole review will be About their lettuce wraps. I was addicted to these! Super refreshing and down right put delicious! I ordered them one day and was hooked. The next day I went back and place 2 orders to go..both for me...one for lunch an one for Linner. They are light enough to eat before a late dinner. Everyone... More
