Chef Mavro Ratings and Reviews
Really great dining experience and the staff were super attentive. Some of the evening winners included the Onaga baked in a salt crust, Peterson Farm Egg, Keahole Lobster, and Island Free Range Chicken. Save room for the creative dessert including the Calamansi Creamsicle.
Dinner at Chef Mavro's was nothing short of complete culinary bliss. Due to our careers, my wife and I live apart most of the year, so when we have a chance to spend some time together, we always celebrate by indulging in our favorite past time -food- and what is a nine course grand tasting other than indulgent? Frankly, it was so much more than just that. While each dish was absolutely delicious on its own, Chef Mavro's full tasting was an absolute master work of inexplicable beauty and decadence. Every dish combined ingredients in such a way that they all seemed to accentuate each other's best qualities. Each successive course would either stand in stark juxtaposition or flow in perfect harmony with he last- part of the fun was never knowing what to expect next, even though a full menu is provided.
While I'd love to go on, I'll concluded simply- if you love food, eat here and regret nothing.
Not in salubrious surroundings at all.
Very dated pretentious decor and smells of old food.
Food quality excellent traditional style- very small portions on the small plate menu- so one must realize that many plates would be needed to satisfy hunger- and this will cost much more than is justified.
Unpleasant olive oil.
Everything was amazing, from the farm egg, day boat catch, island chicken and goat cheese. It was a great first experience. Service was very attentive, and they made the night special with a surprise cake for the occasion. Will have to return for the truffle risotto!
Phenomenal service from a knowledgeable staff who were quick to answer questions and attend to guests. I tried multiple new things throughout the dinner and unfortunately did noy enjoy one, but that hardly ruined the experience and how quicly the staff noted my distaste without being prompted was impressive.
One of the best meals we have enjoyed in some time. We went with the new small plates menu and our party of four fully enjoyed it. (Small plates are perfect for TWO to share. The salted crust Omaha was incredible!! Having Chef Mavro present and serve it was extra special. I highly recommend for special occasions.
Interesting, great tasting food. Unlike many 'nice' restaurants in Hawaii, the chef did not go overboard in an attempt to create new and unique fusion. The tasting menu felt well thought-out but without trying to hard too hard to fuse flavors and food, it felt natural.
Excellent evening! The food was delicious and adventurous - classic French dishes with local ingredients and new twists. All the dishes were excellent - no missed dishes. We opted for the wine pairing which was well thought-out and good value. Service was spot-on - attentive, kind and knowledgeable (and not over the top as can be the case in such establishments). Quiet atmosphere but to be expected given it was late on a Sunday. As others have noted, the bill quickly adds up given set menu prices and wine but I'd definitely recommend it for a special occasion.
My boyfriend and I usually go here for our anniversary every year and I must say no matter how many times we go the food always seems to amaze us! Everything, from the parking lot attendant to the whole restaurant experience, is fantastic! I always reccommend Chef Mavro to everyone I know. Thank you so much for always surprising us with your amazing creations!
Chef Mavro is awesome. Definitely made it to one of my favorite restaurants now...tough to top this one. A little pricy, but would come again for another special occasion. Very intimate place with a good vibe. Really classy and staff was great. Chef came out to say hi as well. 👍🏾👍🏾🤙🏾
Another superb meal at Chef Mavros. Truly one of the very best and consistently excellent restaurants in Honolulu. Choice of 4, 6 and 11 (!) course menus, with locally sourced and locally inspired dishes. Service is friendly and efficient. Presentation is beautiful and each course has unique tastes. Can't be beat!
One of my favorite meals. The truffled chicken was incredible...juicy and filled with flavor. The fresh corn and capered mashed potatoes were perfect side dishes to the chicken. The ultimate comfort food executed at the highest level. Dessert was the perfect end note to the meal...tangy citrus flavor, light, and creative. Service was relaxed and very professional. We couldn't stop talking about the meal!
The food was very good and the wine excellent, but I have had far better meals for far less. This restaurant is definitely "know before you go": there were only four choices for meals, all prix fixe. If you are not a big eater, Chef Mavro is not for you. I left feeling like I paid a handsome sum for an average dining experience.
The 6 course meal with wine pairing was amazing! We enjoyed each course and added on the egg truffle "osmose", A5 wagyu and roasted chicken. The chicken was so soft and divine! Customer service was exceptional. The wait staff were attentive and I found it refreshing to see Chef Mavro greeting his customers. Overall, my husband and I had a wonderful experience at Chef Mavro!
Was ridiculously expensive. They refused to give us an Ala carte menu or a list of bottled wines. Their least expensive bottle of wine was priced at 5 times the $23 cost per glass, which was cheapest glass. They tried very hard to get us to all buy a 4, 6 or 8 course prix fix menu, and we had to ask a few times if we can order only one course. Restaurant on Friday night was 2/3 empty. None of us will ever go back.
all is great except one thing is that some of the people love taking pic there but the ambiance is kind of dark so the resolution of the pictures is not enough to make good pictures.many people love to take pictures of the great foods and also themselves.so recommend to have an equipment for them to take pictures for memory:)
