Go for the cheesecake. Really, just go for the cheesecake and you'll be happy. The wait can be ridiculous, like two hours on a busy night ridiculous, and if you're in Waikiki well there are plenty of other more attractive places to spend two hours than waiting outside on a bench holding a little buzzer thingy, and shaking little buzzer thingy when you start to panic and worry that maybe outta the whole bunch you got the &quot;junk&quot; one, and holding little buzzer thingy up to your ear to listen for a beep and saying incantations over little buzzer thingy, like &quot;come on buzz already will ya? Please?!&quot; The food is o.k.. Kind of just a really long, long, long, long list of American style cuisine. You can get good sandwiches and salads and pasta dishes but I haven't ever had anything outstanding-- other than the cheesecake. =) The environment is loud and busy but fun. Weird but true... the beautiful marble floors seem a bit too slippery, ( I always forget to remind myself to &amp;quot;not&amp;quot; where heels there), 'cause I feel like I'm at risk of sliding in to home, and taking out a few frazzled waiters on the way, each time I take a trip to the ladies room. Go for the fun environment/ night out in Waikiki and, of course... for the cheesecake. Which really, the cheesecake is to die for and is worth every second of the wait and mediocre service and the slippery floors if you have a die hard sweet tooth. You know, if you want you can actually just march right up to the glass case and order a slice of any cake to go and cop a squat on famous Waikiki Beach and enjoy the night, minus the buzzer thingy for company of course.

I suspect that the ridiculous waiting time for a table is mostly due to location, not quality. Food was terrible. Average service, above average prices.

Expect a long wait to get seated, generally between 30 minutes and an hour. Even once you're seated, don't expect fast service. It would be impossible to have the entire dinner experience inside in less than 2 hours. Besides the scarce service, the food is only decent. And the portions are HUGE! Leftovers are to be expected though half of my party decided to leave them. Wasn't that great first time around...

The service was horirble! The waiter avoided half of the table!! It took 15 minutes to get the waiter to take drink orders, another 15 to get the drinks. 20 minutes later we were able to place entree orders... I couldn't even get a refill on my water!! Dessert wasn't offered to half the table, boxes to go had to be asked for twice... the bill 20 minutes. It was overall terrible service and I wouldn't recommend it to my dog!

Simply the best food in Hawaii and the greatest dining experience in the islands! Will return again and again.....Great service!!! The waits can be lengthy, but well worth it!
