    We gave it a second chance after a bad first experience right after they opened, and we we’re disappointed. I had the kalo loco moko and it was inedible. One of the worst things I have ever tasted…and I spent two years eating MREs in Iraq.

    Pretty forgettable meal. Overly salty fried chicken and overcooked rice. The service was attentive, though. Not much stood out.

    We had a great first time at Kapa Hale! Food was delicious, we had the tartare and Marlin pate to start. For main courses we had the tagliatelle and risotto. So good! Recommend both. Risotto is like a spicy curry sauce, delicious. We also had the tempura eggplant which was good too. We brought our 4 month old in a stroller and he ended up taking a nap. Awesome service from Dean (I think his name was) and we will definitely be back. Highly recommend!

    Wow the Kogi Boeuf Aged Steak, Cornbread and Kapa-Kahi salad. All three made to perfection. Where has this place been all my life? Tonight was date night for my hubby and I and I feel like he really hooked me up by bringing me to this establishment of fine dining. The food was excellent. The best part of this meal was "all of it"! Very great accommodations by our waiter Steve, who has a great personality and offers great recommendations. The owner is also a really nice guy. I heard he was a chef too. The food broke da mouth and rubbed da belly. Oh my. We just have to come back here to try other things on the menu. I really feel like this is the best meal I've had in Oahu in a long time and it's right up the street. A nice restaurant with great ambiance. I will dream of this meal tonight. Thanks so much for great hospitality, food, and even good conversation from one of the nicest ladies who works there. I didn't catch her name but great night for us here and we will be return. Yelp worthy yummers achieved for the evening.

    Father’s Day! Food and service were great, although kitchen was pretty slow. The indoor area is really nice but the outdoor tables, where we were, really feels like you’re sitting in a parking lot. Some plants or even bamboo screening along and to the height of the fence outside would help.

    Food flavors are creative but not balanced depending on what is ordered, eg, ginger garlic scallion pork chop too much garlic & salt. Pricey prime rib for Father’s Day at $60 so rated value lower.

    Service was good, friendly. We got there when it opened. As prior started to get seated it got noisy. I had a hard time talking at a normal level of voice. I had the chicken And waffles. The chicken was pretty good in flavor and tenderness. The waffles were not very good. It got cold really fast or maybe it was already semi warm and not hot. The coffee was Luke warm. I kept asking for refill hoping it would be hot. It didn’t get any hotter. My friend had a sandwich. Kinda weird to eat a sandwich with a fried egg on top. Can’t use your hands. But it was ok. Maybe I’ll try it one more time. Not sure.

    Quite good, highly recommended but be advised noisy at times. Acoustics are not especially conducive to conversation. Some (not all) of the 4 top tables are mildly uncomfortable, just kinda depends if you're actually sitting with 4 people. Still, overall, one of our favorite places.

    Best smoked octopus on the island. The "You Chick'n Me Out" was moist and tender for white meat chicken. "I Love You a Laksa Risotto" was absolutely excellent. They had to substitute the scallop (since they were out of scallop) with a seared piece of ahi, but the rissotto was still the best seafood risotto I've had in Honolulu. Service was impeccable and friendly, too. The cocktails had just the right amount of alcohol to give one a buzz. A totally memorable experience.

    Seating within the restaurant is okay, it is noisy, with concrete floors and no real furniture, additional walls, or plants to absorb noise. They are in need of an interior designer to address the space. The food was good, the green eggs and ham we a bit disappointing, my chicken and waffle was okay too, I miss the mochi waffle, this was just a regular waffle. There was also not a lot of honey on the cornbread, we had to ask for more.

    Everything about our experience here was excellent. Food came out fast and was beautifully plated and delicious. Everything was well balanced and not overly seasoned or fussy. The staff is very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The restaurant’s atmosphere is quintessential Hawaii, warm, inviting and fun. Chef Keaka Lee is a joy to experience and his vision is inspired while still keeping true to the comforting and familiar flavors of the dishes he has reinvented. We will definitely be back!
