Consistency is one of the virtues of great restaurants. Before you go out for a special event and drop a fair amount of cash, you want some confidence that it will be good. We first ate at 12th Avenue in 2008 and had a wonderful time with family. We have visited family several times since then and almost always go... More

It is located in the middle of nowhere. Get your smart phone ready or use Uber to get there. I am not a big fan of Hawaiian cuisine, but this place provides NY quality excellent food and I was VERY impressed. Try Hawaiian food somewhere else once and go there for real food! I had such low food expectations in... More

Innovative menu, knowledgeable staff, great ingredients - worth a visit - book early, we were still jet lagged and came in early -- the charcuterie was really good - if I were not driving I would have more than one cocktail - also really goid

This modern restaurant is well away from the downtown area but was still very busy on a Thursday night. The waiters were great and very knowledgeable. Food was fantastic. Four of us in group had four different meals and 2 appetizers and everybody was ecstatic about their food. Really an overall exceptional dining experience.

Fabulous menu, great wine list, superb whisky list - all in a nicely appointed, trendy atmosphere. The 15-minute Uber ride was worth getting out of the tourist area and finding a place the locals truly like. A dedicated farm-to-table venue, the menu was quite broad, including seafood, lamb, steak, pork chops and more. Four of us enjoyed 2 great appetizers... More

This restaurant is not located in the tourist area of Honolulu. The food is carefully sourced, and delicious. The waiters are very friendly, and offer good natured advice if asked. Although the food is if the highest quality, the prices, while somewhat pricey, are not as high as restaurants of similar quality. Very enjoyable!

Scallops and fish special were wonderful, and the calamari app was very good. Great service and ambience, would definitely return when visiting again!

Four of us are in Honolulu for work for several weeks and we didn't want to fight the crowds in Waikiki. There was construction on H1 that prevented us from getting to the Kona Brewing Company so we opened Trip Advisor and searched for "restaurants near us" and I'm glad we did. This is tucked back in a little neighborhood... More
