Plumeria Beach House Ratings and Reviews

Plumeria Beach House is hands down the BEST seafood buffet on Oahu! Everything is incredibly fresh and beautifully prepared. The price is unbeatable for the impeccable service and quality of food you receive. Not to mention the gorgeous view of the ocean and sunset you have as you dine. They have something for everyone here! From a variety of salads and appetizer types to start off with, or you can dive right in with succulent snow crab legs, sushi, sashimi, meats, cheeses, soups, etc. Then if you manage to save room for dessert, because let's face it, even if you didn't, you'll find a way when you see the assortment of bite size treats calling your name! Absolutely divine! This is our second visit within less than a month as we were completely blown away by this restaurant on our first visit. Needless to say we will be back each and every chance we get to indulge in this glorious gem. Thank you Plumeria for such an incredible night our for my family both times!

The Kahala is known for its $$$ which is worth its ambience. The Plumeria Café has shortened its menu and though its a limited lunch menu its still good. It was once known for its grand buffets where we would bring clients to lunch all the time. The limited menu is still good though.

Living in Hawaii it's easy to forget just how beautiful it is, so dining at Plumeria Beach House allows you to feel as though you're on vacation, even when you're just on your lunch break.
Homemade Beef & Vegetable Pot Pie.... absolutely delicious! Better than what Grandma made (Sorry grandma) It's served with a tasty sauce as well as the freshest salad (definitely appears to be locally grown) The homemade butter with rolls became our dessert.
The service was prompt & friendly, the view.... Gorgeous! Valet parking quick & convenient (validation at restaurant)

A wonderful time as always at the Plumeria Beach House. This time we went for dinner and they came through as always. Didn't realize the hotel was also having their annual Christmas tree lighting, the property was very busy with well wishers and children. Not their usual clientele. So after it was done the restaurant got busy and kinda loud. Oh well, still enjoyed myself and the reason for the season.

today was our second breakfast at plumeria beach house. thus, my wife an i were ready. we knew the system. escorted to our requested table (against the wall with a view of the omelet station). got the juices for the table. surprised again that there were only two selections of juice, and, one of a flavored water. headed to the omelet station. my wife stood guard at our table. this morning, asked the young chef for two eggs sunny side. had my rice bowl ready with hot rice inside. this chef is incredible. he is fast, full of personality, and is able to remember each guests selected edible selections. got my eggs, then onto the japanese selections for the requisite pickles, seaweed, and miso soup. sat down and enjoyed! now it is the wife's turn. she is off to the Japanese selections and her bowl of hot rice. and the necessary eggs. portugese sausage, crisp bacon, three types of sausage along with scrambled eggs are available on the hot entree table. you are able to make your own toast from a wide selection of bread including grain, white and bagels. there are four jams and jellies available including honey. you'll find the fresh fruit table awaiting you. however, the melon was hard, and, the watermelon tasteless. cantaloupe was sweet and cut into chunks. assorted yogurt displayed on ice. this is a buffet that caters to young adults, children, and even seniors like me. reflecting back, that omelet station was awesome. hope that chef is there on my return stay. also, from our table, we watched one young man who was a server at this plumeria beach house. he was everywhere. he cleaned the tables, set it up for new guests, provided water to the customers, along with refills. all with a smile. his name is mr. jiajun. my wife and i were impressed with his earnest work ethics . he just did not stop. but his smile was always there. thank you, mr. jiajun. mahalo.

it was a saturday mornng breakfast buffet. yes, all the tourists were there. there were couples, singles and many families. my wife and i settled on a table close to the wall inside the restaurant. it was a buffet so i headed straight to the omelet station. my wife held the table. you select your ingredients for the omelet. the chef doing the omelet was amazing. he does four omelets at a time. and, he remembers whose plate he is doing. great job! there were two juice offerings along with a flavored water. coffee in a large pot is left on your table. our server, susan, was all smiles with her calm service. it was my wife's turn. she returned with a bowl of hot rice, natto, and japanese pickles. somehow i missed that. ended up with a plate of fresh fruit. not so sweet watermelon, hard melon, ripe cantaloupe, and pineapple chunks. the hot items were the usual potatoes, hard bacon, scrambled eggs and three types of sausages. you can do your own toast with an assortment of bread and bagels. from our table we watched the omelet station line and that super omelet chef. he makes that line move. very satisfying breakfast from a buffet perspective. aloha.

Lucky to get the onion soup although it's no longer on the menu. Yum. The ambience is always fabulous. It was partly cloudy, so we were concerned about being in the sun when it did come out. The server assured us that the table would be okay, but it wasn't when the sun came out. We shifted around to try to stay out of the sun. The service was generally good, but there was an afternoon wedding party near us, so there were delays, especially dessert time. The dessert was refreshing and delicious: coconut sorbet, which came with assorted berries. All-in-all a great place for lunch -- especially with mainland visitors.

We were seated at the table closest to the omelet station where there was open space around our table. This allowed my mom who's using a walker, easy access to and from the buffet area as she didn't have to maneuver around tables. Kudos to the receptionist who seated us.
Also kudos to the valet staff who opened the car door and helped my mom with her helped her with her walker.

Our server never checked on us, not even once or asked how we are doing. Had to ask for our drinks to be refilled. Our servers barely said thank you or your welcome. Had to have my credit card on the table before they even got our check.

We've been to Plumeria Beach House maybe 15 times over the las 7 years. It's close to the water with adequate food but good (and pricey) wine. This time they misplaced out order so it took an hour to get served. Unique occurrence so they apologized and comped my chowder.

Where we always bring our mainland guests. They absolutely love the ambience and view. The food is always good, especially their buffets, which offer a very large selection. Two things though: 1) While their regular dinner menu has a nice variety of entrees, they pare it down on their buffet nights. On those nights, the regular menu offers only 3 entrees (1 chicken, 1 beef and 1 fish). And the gluten-free items are VERY limited, 2) When they have large parties, the service can be pretty slow. This particular night, there was a LARGE party (about 4-5 tables) and it took over 45 minutes to receive our dinner and 25 minutes to receive our dessert. If you're in a rush, you need to check if they have large parties, or let them know as soon as you arrive. Overall though we love it and it will still be our favorite go-to place to treat mainland guests.

We decided to spend the Friday night at the resort rather than spend the night in Waikiki for an evening event there. Wise Choice. We got to The Plumeria Beach House Saturday morning and got seated on time. Everyone greeted us warmly. Susan and Brad, our wait help, were awesome. We ordered the French Press coffee to enjoy with our breakfast. There is an omelet station that was quite popular with the guests, the line was long. We enjoyed the buffet and the Manager, Miriam, came over to check up on us. Everything at the restaurant was very nice. Need to get back soon!

My friend and I went there for brunch on my b.d.! Our waitress was Lynn and we just loved her. She was efficient, friendly and professional. She made our visit so comfortable and fun! Even though I made the reservation for p.m. and not a.m., they sat us down right away, without any wait. (my mistake).....
