Dinner in Honolulu/ Waikiki

Mrs. S. and I are going to Oahu in a couple of weeks to see the "Big City". Would like some nice restaurant choices. Not Alan Wong's but not Cheesecake Factory. Would pay up to $40 a piece for entrees. Thanks.

Aloha,

House Without A Key is a good one.

If you folks like a good Steak, check out Chuck's Steak House.

Hy's Steak House is good also, but no view.

Have a great time,

Aloha

But but but.. I love Alan Wong's and I love CF :)

I was not impressed by Roys or PF Changs thou.

I also loved Duke's but I get the feeling you want something a bit more upmarket and quiet.

I really enjoy Chart House over by the marina.

Good food, really nice crowd and a great laid back feel :)

I never miss a chance to dine there!

Have fun!

Got one of the best steaks ever at Chart House once. Had lots of good times at the Shorebird cooking a steak and great sunsets.

Love the Chart House and Hy's. My one and only meal at Chuck's was nothing to write home about!!

For real local flavor try the Side Street Inn. They have 2 locations, one by the Ala Moana Center and another over on Kapahulu.

Look at amberloo's Top Question, shantybob, great info there!!

Duke's is my favorite.

Top of Waikiki is also good, it's a revolving restaurant.

I'd read Cheap Eats and Amberloo and Food.

You can get Duke's on Kauai and good steaks on Kauai, not sure how good the Korean, Japanese or Thai is on Kauai. I don't recall any yakiniku or izakaya spots in Kauai. There are a lot of good listings in the topic for that.

There are also great spots away from Waikiki over in Kaimuki like Salt Kitchen & Tasting Bar and Town and more great spots in Chinatown like Duc's Bistro and Epic.

It has also been awhile since I touted the McCully Shopping Center just outside of Waikiki. It is a trip around Asia is one spot.

They have Neco Grill and Bar where Bistro 'a un used to be and it is similar with Asian fusion, Fook Yuen Chinese Seafood Restaurant, Hot Pot Heaven, a hot pot restaurant obviously, Pho777 Vietnamese Restaurant, Maui Kitchen, island food plus new originals like bacon wrapped meatloaf, Phuket Thai, Yotteko-ya Kyoto Ramen and Curry House Coco Ichibanya, a Japanese curry house. Regal Diner for standard Hawaiian plate lunch.
