Plumeria Beach House Ratings and Reviews

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).....

During my stay in Waikiki, I went Hau tree lanai, Moana hotel, orchid at Halekulani for breakfast and this Plumeria Beach House at Kahala Hotel for lunch. No need to say but Kahala was best. I first thought to have a buffet menu but ordered a la carte menu. It was the right select. Each meal was so tasty. 3 of us ordered "Steamed clams & mussels", "Chilled Seasonal Soup", "The Kahala Burger" and "Seafood coconut Curry" for 2. "Steamed clams & mussels" was great. I asked another spoon and bowl to enjoy soup. Also Kahala Burger was so ONO (tasty). Next time I go to Hawaii, I should stay there and enjoy more.

We quite enjoyed our Sunday breakfast there - after the shock of making a breakfast reservation for 12 noon and finding out that breakfast ended then! The waitstaff checked with the kitchen and we were still able to get Eggs Benedict, which was a huge relief and quite tasty too! The lunch menu was uninspiring to us...The problem was the menu on the hotel's website made no mention of breakfast ending at noon -- you have to go down the page on the restaurant's main website to find the hours. So, overall - very pleasant wait staff, food was good, but if you want breakfast, get there before 12!!

Very warm due to open seating
Wait staff was busy and busboy was snappy and at times rude in response to our repeated requests (4)for water and bread plates/utensils
We wanted to have the brunch but the only reservation available was at noon when brunch had already ended . It was a birthday celebration for 2 guests and we were entertaining another couple visiting from out of town

Can't beat the atmosphere but the value for the price was poor! The roasted chicken looked burned and I have seen more meat on the chicken breast at KFC. My pork chop was small and for $34 you would have expected more. Same for the soup and salad which were ala carte and $25 total!
I would have been good with our check had the food lived up to the high price point!
Will not be going there for dinner again.

We went for a birthday celebration. Had a noon reservation on a Sunday. Regretted that we could no longer order off the breakfast menu, especially since we still saw people walking to and from the breakfast buffet tables. The lunch menu, however, was wonderful! Not too many veggie options, however. We had a 3 ½ year old with us, and they were very kid-friendly. The fact that this is on the beach, with a gorgeous view, and has several pools with fish, turtles, and dolphins - made it even more suitable for kids (of any age). Sad to see these magnificent mammals confined and then being subjected to guests swimming with them, (swim for $$$$), but it did make it an unusual and interesting lunch. We will go back and make sure we are there during the time we can try the breakfast!

for the price the brunch was adequate, the ham and sweet rolls were excellent the rest was somewhat mediocre. the service was not what I expect from this restaurant and I hate to talk it up to my friends and have the disappointment of a not great e experience

This is a very busy hotel restaurant. There are lots of tourists hustling and bustling around, so if you want a quiet place to have breakfast or brunch this is not it. The ocean view was beautiful but was difficult to enjoy with so much people traffic.
I think this is a nice place to eat if you are staying at the hotel before heading out, but definitely not a place to go just to eat if you live on the island.
What a disappointment! We have visit ...
What a disappointment! We have visited the Plumeria Beach House for the past 20 years on each of our annual trips to Honolulu. While the beautiful view remains a constant, the food was mediocre, the server uninspired and the prices astronomical. $18 for a glass of Rose, $50 for a steak that we ordered as "medium rare" and arrived well done. As Donald Trump might say, "sad" or as they say in the islands, "auwe!"

The view is beautiful! Nothing beats eating outdoors by the ocean. Unfortunately, the food was rather mediocre. Bouillabaisse was overlooked, butterfish nothing special (like, I could make this...) pork chops were pretty good. Go for the ambiance, not the food!

We always seem to be rushed by the wait staff from the time we are seated until we leave. I have never spent more than 1 hour and feeling the whole time there like we need to leave. We were not offered anything to drink other than coffee. Not overtly unfriendly but more underwhelming. It's like eating at an overpriced cafeteria with a great view.
