Honolulu >Alan Wong's Restaurant
Not as expected - but worth it!.
My parents recommended this restaurant, selling us on the Everything we ate was amazing - even the salad. Reservations are recommended very much in advance. You can go to the website and reserve several months ahead of time. We did not do this it took two attempts calling the day we planned to eat there.
The restaurant is located in a random building. You immediately take an elevator upstairs, and not much tells you that you are going the right way. The restaurant itself is pretty small, but it was full. We sat at the bar briefly for a drink. The bartenders were very friendly. I tried a glass of wine from Alan Wongs exclusive collection very good.
2 apps + 2 salads + 2 entrees + 2 drinks + 2 desserts = 2 much food! Expensive once the check came, but worth it!
We really enjoyed Alan Wong's restruant. We found the food and service to be excellent.
We visited all the top places in and near Honolulu and can strongly recommend Alan Wong's restruant.
Not just Chinese Food. If you can actually find the place you are in for a seafood extravaganza. The ginger crusted fish and the pan fried mahi mahi were to die for. Extensive wine list and great starter salads to boot, the service matched the bright friendly atmosphere. Great place for groups or for dates.
Exquisite Beyond Measure.
To miss this restaurant is to miss one of the best dining experiences not only on the islands, but in the world. As a foodie living in a city renowned for fine dining, Alan Wong's surpasses the best of SF.
I strongly recommend the 5-course sampling with wine pairings. Ask to substitute the lamb for the beef (see menu on their website)... words cannot render fairly the delicacy they've created with this dish.
Each course built solidly upon the other, creating a well-crafted and rewarding dining experience that pleases not only the palate, but the soul as well. Exquisite beyond measure.
The melange of fresh ingredients and exquisite culinary craft was heightened by perfect service... formal and to protocol, yet warm, gracious and friendly. Clearly the staff knows they are working at a winning restaurant and their pride shows in their work.
Its worth flying over for. Go.
best meal EVER. I am New York City-bred foodie of sufficient means to have tried many of the top restaurants and nothing compares to Alan Wong. The pan-asian fusion is like nothing I've ever had before. Korean BBQ "Tacos" infused with mexican and SE Asian flavors is simply unbelievable (so is everything else). Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable (waiter recommended a great, moderately price German wine). When I think of Hawaii, I think of Alan Wong before the sun or beach.
INCOMPARABLE SERVICE!!!. My husband ordered the 5-course dinner (without wine), which was a fantastic value at $65.00. He raved about everything, from the bread and spread down to the desserts. I had the panzanella salad (with lobster) and kiawe grilled beef. The panzanella salad had an explosion of flavor and (even though I'm not crazy about lobster) I ate nearly all of it. I was hesitant to order my beef medium well, as most restaurants don't seem to want to cook it that way, but it was PERFECTLY done to my taste. I shared my husband's desserts and found the lilikoi cheesecake sublime. The service is knowledgeable, discreet, and quick, with just the right amount of conversation. Will always eat here from now on!!
The best restaurant in the world!!.
Although this place is pricey, I have been here over 20 times since it opened and not necessarily for special occasions. Have an L.A. relative who has to go to Alan Wong's on every single trip.
Great display of regional cuisine and I have had every single item that is a part of their daily menu so I tend to go for their daily specials which revolve around the fresh produce and catch of the day.
Staff is always friendly and knowledgable. Make friends with the busboy because he'll keep pumping you with freshly made breads and aioli. But save room for dessert whether it be the 5 spoonfuls of creme brulee or chocolate sampler.
Alan Wong's is DA BOMB!!
