"The restaurant was very accomodating in changing the time of our reservation as well as the number of people in our party. They also accomodated our request to be seated outside.
The food for the Chinese New Year Buffet was outstanding! We thoroughly enjoyed this year's lion dance, which lasted longer than last year's.
Our waiter was very attentive and accomodating.
This is our favorite place to eat a good meal and receive top-notch service."

"Always a beautiful day for lunch at Plumeria Beach House. Food is good,, service is impeccable, view is spectacular.
Goes without saying the establishment is pricey but always nice to visit on a special occasion."

"As usual, the seafood was excellent: the oysters, shrimp, sashimi, and poke were outstanding. It's unfortunate that the beef couldn't be a bit more rare and they don't have king crab as a regular feature (there was some in the mixed seafood with black bean sauce).
It would be nice to have the wait staff more aware of refilling coffee cups and tea pots; we had to wave down waiters 2 or 3 times to have them take care of this, and this has been the case nearly every time I've dined there.
In general, although the offerings here are fewer than at other buffets, like the Prince Court or the Oceanarium, the quality of the seafood is outstanding and dependable, and I enjoy taking guests here."

"We are Honolulu residents who often bring guests to Kahala Resort for lunch at Plumeria Beach House. On December 28, 2015 all three of us ordered the Kahala Hamburger. We all considered it to be not as good as in past visits...just average for the price. The Kona Coffee Cheese Cake was a bust - horrible: Not the consistency of cheese cake, just a crumbly mess that could barely be eaten with a fork. I suspect the product is provided by a vendor as an in house pastry chef would not offer this over-priced, tasteless desert on the menu. It is not worth $8 or $10 let alone $12 as charged. Some lunch entrees are enjoyable, though the Cobb Salad is nol on the current menu. Skip desert."

"Advised in OpenTable reservation that this was a special combined birthday and anniversary occasion. No acknowledgement, no special table, no kind words at all until the bill was brought. Service was inattentive; food was very slow, location was not as nice as expected."

"We had a disappointing experience at Plumeria for breakfast buffet Monday. Living in Hawaii Kai, the Kahala is one of our favorites.
From the poor table service (finished eating a buffet first trip before the coffee arrived/finished with breakfast completely before a coffee cup arrived, never brought us things we asked for) to poor presentation and stocking of food at the buffet (asked three different staff to refill the breads and pastries, other items non-existent, spills everywhere), we were left with a poor impression.
It's unlikely we'll be visiting again soon. We work hard for our money, and at that price, we deserve a little better experience.
My wife talked to the 'manager', and he apologized and asked what room we were in. She said we were local. He told her, 'since you aren't hotel guests, there's nothing I can do for you.'
Very poor form......."

"Come before 12 as the brunch is done by then, we found out the hard way because there were no note online stating that brunch buffet was done by 12. The regular a la carte dishes aren't my favorite but the brunch buffet is what we come for. Love their signature pancakes and omelet bar."

"The restaurant really needs some warmers to keep the food hot. They also needs to replenish the food more quickly. Crackers for the crab were not available until you asked. Never once the waiter would come by and ask if we needed anything. No refill of water or ice tea we ordered."

"We wanted a family friendly buffet since our party included our 7 year old grandson. This turned out to be the perfect place. The food was familiar, but nicely presented and tasty. There was an omelet bar and carved ham, breakfast meats and eggs, pastries, fresh fruit and juices, cold cuts, and cereal. There was also a small Japanese breakfast section with miso soup and tsukemono. Some Sunday buffets try to do it all - prime rib, sushi, salad bars, etc. - and end up not doing anything well. We liked the Plumeria because they limited the variety but served quality food. The wait staff was attentive and very friendly. I liked that they put a pot of coffee on our table so that we never ran out.
The setting was, of course, beautiful - open to the beach and adjacent to the pools with turtles, rays and dolphins. This was a treat for both adults and children."

"The curries were excellent! The host that seated us was rude and not warm and friendly but curt. The waitress was not super helpful either and did not come to ask us to refill drinks or water....should have offered at least one refill for the one drink that cames with the curry buffet.
Dessert bar looked fabulous but is only good for looks. All the cookies were stale and the rest of the desserts were dried. They really need to improve the desserts.
The ambiance was good. We sat outside under the tent for shade; however the tent obstructed the beautiful ocean view and looked very tacky. I understand the tent was set up to accommodate more tables and guest, but it made the place feel cheap and not an elegant dining place.
We enjoyed the luncheon and took pictures in the beautifully decorated hotel lobby after the meal."
