The seafood can be more multi selection. By the way, when I were eating a watermelon, I found a piece of glass shards in the watermelon. The foods and fruits should be more safety.

The service is always friendly and there's a great selection of food from the brunch buffet line. This time I ordered the lobster eggs benedict. It was delicious!

We were given roomy table and the food was good. Kitchen was extraordinarily slow for a restaurant that had about 70% capacity. Staff let us talk, which is nice, without pressuring us to leave.

Had the Wednesday curry buffet. The food was delicious from the 3 different curries and rices, variety of salads and desserts. All were ono! Service was a little slow and with kids crying to noisy silverware replenishing sounds, the atmosphere was more coffee shop than relaxing resort. But other than that it was a pretty nice lunch.
Nice relux time
Little bit away from waikiki, have a relux time seeing dolphins & colorfull seafishes under natural sound
Down a notch?
I always book The Plumeria at least once for every visit. This was Lei Day, booked early. No need to. The restaurant had 3 tables of diners at a prime time. Seemed odd. Had to send one dish back as it did not taste the same as another of the same dish we had at the table. It was handled very very well but still sorry about the entire evening. Empty room, so so food for all...... not sure what is happening. I still recommend for brunch. I'd try again before suggesting others go for dinner. The resort is tops - maybe an off night? sorry
nice and relaxing space
We used the restaurant during the travel for celebrating our 10th anniversary. Why we booked breakfast was that your breakfast is listed in Hawaiian guide of mine. And this is our first time in Hawaii. So we didn't know so much about your restaurant nor your hotel and we didn't expected so much. But now, I know your restaurant and your hotel as one of the nicest and the most relaxing place ever. The ocean, the pools, the garden, and so on. Everything fits to us. We felt like staying in Isle of Pines where we stayed for Honeymoon. We stayed Hilton this time, but if possible, we wanna stay and enjoy your hotel someday and eat breakfast in your restaurant every morning. Thank you.
improvement on buffet
For the price of buffet, saimin station should be changed. Maybe ok for lunch time. But it wasn't the greatest. Prime rib was excellent but aujus better than demiglaze. The cold selections and fish were wonderful. Clam Chowder was awesome Main entrees was mostly seafood but could be more tasty. Desserts were great especially bread pudding.
Catch the sunrise
I planned breakfast, they serve as early as 6:30am and just to be sure I made the simple and easy reservation for two on opentable for Plumeria Beach House. Breakfast variety is amazing and tasty. Then a walk on the beach and hammocks available on the property.
The resutarant was perfect for us.
We cerabrated birthday for one of our friend. Everybody really enjoyed the lunch. I will recommend to other people and I will bring my family, too.

We were 10'minutes late but called ahead to let them know ... When we arrived we were seated right away at a great table facing the water...lovely! We were offered water and drinks right away..Lori our server was fantastic as always and the bus-man was also attentive to bring water and clear plates. The food was excellent, fresh and well presented. Chef Mario kindly explained to my guest what the food labels meant ..EF,GF... so glad to see this! Lori went on a break but she let us know that we would be taken care of... when she came back, she brought a birthday cake for our birthday girl Vicki...so thoughtful! We always enjoy the beautiful atmosphere, great service and great food... that's why we come back time and time again! Mahalo!
The correspondence of the Japanese staff was disappointing. I was able to spend so wonderful time other than it.

Food was outstanding, but very pricey. Our bill was about $50 a person, and 3 of the guests were children. There was no alcohol purchased...just non alcoholic beverages and the dinner buffet. It is definitely a special occasion restaurant.
Bring it down a notch - your stress level, that is! Just sitting in this venue is relaxing. Add to that a superlative waitstaff, a lovely view and foodie- worth menu - what's not to love?
A GREAT GETAWAY FROM THE MADDENING PACE
FANTASTIC REUNION SITE FOR FOUR VINTAGE LADIES AND WONDERFUL MENU SELECTION. BUT COULD HAVE USED A REFILL ON THE ICE TEA!!!
Best Buffet on Island
Menu was on point- there is enough selection to have each item packed with flavor yet not too many to be over whelmed. The Friday/Saturday buffet is perfect for a special occasion or a night with the family. It may be seem pricey but you get what you pay for. We are looking forward to going again.
As always, the staff is extremely accommodating!
What I love about this establishment is that "anything's possible" attitude and graciousness. The food quality is always par excellence and delicious.
Easter at Plumeria
Outstanding service - perfect view - abundance of tasty food on the buffet. We had a wonderful evening with family.
Service by our waitstaff Barbara was just perfect
Really enjoyed our visit. Everything was wonderful.
Great brunch , lovely setting
We have been enjoying brunch at The Plumeria Beach Cafe for more than 20 years and it has never disappointed. The beachside setting is glorious, the food delicious with ample choice, the service attentive without being intrusive. Our daughter chose to have her wedding there with brunch to follow which I think is a resounding endorsement
Good value for the price, just a little disappointed with crab legs on bottom of pan sits in water. Maybe a "strainer like" on bottom so if you're the unlucky one to get those, the pieces would not have water in them. When cracking these, the water drips down your hand.
Lovely spot for lunch. Eat outside for ambience and view. Good food, good drinks. Don't miss the cheesecake!! Delicious!

Excellent service!! As always I appreciate the great service and the chef's willingness to cater to my dietary restrictions. Mahalo!
I have been to the Breakfast buffet here several times and we had a big birthday celebration here once. I have always been wowed by the scenery and the food has always be good. The best part of the experience has always been the service. I would recommend this place to everyone.
View and ambience excellent. Good for birthday lunches. My friend had a sandwich and fries. Fries were cold, as if not made freshly with each order. We sent back twice due to temperature. Finally they cooked a fresh batch, which is what we would expect, and they arrived fresh and hot. Friendly staff and they did a nice piece of birthday cake for my friend. Would return.

I made a reservation for 8 people . Upon arrival, the restaurant was not full. We did have a table close to the beach side, which was nice. It took about 30 minutes for our first course to arrive, which I felt was too long as the restaurant did not seem busy. I ordered a second bottle of wine, which also took a while to arrive. I was told later that they needed to get it from the cellar. At that point we were almost done with our entree. My sorbet had only two scoops; the waiter said he was going to bring the third scoop, which never arrived. At that point, we were anxious to leave as we had foreign guests that needed to return to their hotel. I was disappointed with the food service, as I expected more from a five star hotel. The food was okay, not stellar. Might just stick with the brunch.
Terrible wait time!,,
The only item was the wait time. Even though you had a reservation you still had to wait in line with the standby people with no reservation then wait again for your table. Our wait time with reservations was about 45 minutes.
Brunch did not disappoint
We celebrated my daughter's birthday at the Plumeria Beach House. There were five of us, and we had a great seat with a view of the ocean, yet inside so the wind was not too cold. Brunch food items were excellent, and the service was very attentive without being under our elbows. Overall, it was an extremely enjoyable time and the food was excellent. Once we finished brunch, we were able to take pictures on the grounds and watch the dolphin encounters. It was a very good experience.
One of My Favorites
Away from the craziness of Waikiki....The Plumeria Beach House is one of my favorites to do Sunday Brunch. Open air environment, near the ocean and clean. Food choices are great and tasty. Staff very friendly, genuine, respectful and professional.
love this resaturant
We have been here twice now and it was excellent both times. The seafood is delicious and you can't beat all you can eat buffet for the price. Well worth the drive to eat here.
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.

The brunch buffet was incredible!!
great buffet selection
Wonderful selection of food and condiments for every palate. Great for multi-generational dining. Many of the selections were downsized so you can try variety of items that they have.
Another pleasant dinner
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.
Personal detail makes a difference.
They were so sweet to remember that we were celebrating our daughter's birthday. They provided a cute dessert with candle.
