    It was ok. We we’re supposed to be seated inside as reserved. They wanted to sit us outside. It was freezing. They gave us bar seating. Everyone was polite but service was slow.

    The service was terrible and we were very much looking forward to dinner as there are so many great reviews. It took about 20 minutes before anyone approached our table. It took another 20 minutes to get our drinks. In the meantime our appetizers came, but we had no plates or silverware so we had to get up from the table to go and request them. My husband’s dinner (a chicken dish) was terribly burned but was still served. We had ordered the dessert soufflé when we placed our dinner order because per the menu they needed additional time to prepare it. It came out with our dinner. The server told us that there had been a lot of mistakes the entire evening. Although they took my husbands dinner off the bill, they left the dessert. We were celebrating our anniversary. Unfortunately, we will not return.

    Teriyaki sirloin was very tough and not edible. Baked potatoes was barely warm. Not worth the high prices.

    Food was badly cooked, tuna not seared correctly, vegan burger not fully cooked, lack of seasoning and a poor culinary experience. Cutlery was forgotten and had to ask more than once to receive it. Very expensive for the experience. Overall will not return.

    Overall it was pretty okay. The cocktails were very inconsistent - one Old Fashioned was perfect but another was terrible (muddled orange?). Steaks were good, but the lobster was inedible. We sent it back and later the server came to tell us that the kitchen agreed it was over cooked. They politely took it off our bill. Service was great though. Sadly, I will not likely return.

    We arrived and first placed in a room with a large noisy private party. Snout 30 people. We asked to be moved which they did and we had a nice table. When checking in we told them it was our 55th anniversary, when a manager came over to see if the table was better, we shared that we were so happy to be there as it was our anniversary. We also told our waitress. The calamari was quite cheesy. We ordered a rib eye and loaded potato and ahi dinner and all was good. We also had 4 drinks . We asked for to go boxes as we did have leftovers, and then we were given our bill. No anniversary… We attempted to pay with a visa gift card which they declined and said they don’t accept that form of payment. We often use them and their reason was we might go out and reuse it before they receive credit. We told them they could keep the card after they run it. So we paid with our credit card and just a sad way to end a special day

    My cousin and I had a wonderful time celebrating our birthdays. Great atmosphere. Great White Whale cocktail was delicious. I had the salmon, which was pretty good - not fantastic. My cousin had the New York steak and she loved it. Lava cake was the best I've ever had - so yummy with English toffee topping!

    The waiter was attentive however as the evening wore on it was not very good. I think there were 2 factors. One is that the computers went down so according to the waiter was the reason our parties did not get their salad and soups. When the entrees came out he ask if we still wanted them and our parties said yes. We had to ask three times for our second round of drinks. The second issue is that the restaurant was very busy and there were 2 large celebrations. The food was very good but I was not impressed with the service.

    We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at Aloha. But the highlight of our visit was our server. Willie was attentive but not intrusive, he called us by name and knew we were there for an anniversary. He was just an exceptional server. The noise level was bit high but that was due to one family with small children. We will definitely return.

    Service was very slow. Took 30 minutes to order our entree after receiving our drinks. People at the table next to us who arrived 30 minutes after we sat down received their meals 20 minutes before us. They did give us a free appetizer for the wait but still, not the best impression. Food was very good though.

    Her ribeye and my terriyaki baseball steaks were cooked to perfection. As requested, my baked potato was equal parts potato and butter. The wine (and Opolo red blend) was perfect. Service was attentive yet unobtrusive. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the fresh ocean breeze and watched the sky turn as the sun set. A lovely place to have a lovely night.

    3rd or 4th time I have been here and it's another great experience. I only have one small complaint. It's wrong to not offer free bread! It's terrible that you feel that you need to cut $0.75 cents in cost when you charge $40 for a steak.
