Plumeria Beach House Ratings and Reviews

The open table app shows a nice dinner menu for this restaurant, but when we got there, only a buffet was on offer. Loud children everywhere, buffet was a mess (food falling off platters, everything picked over, food on floor), then surprised with $85 per person charge. Totally not worth it. It's in a beautiful hotel with great spaces, this restaurant is totally out of place.
Good selection of entrees. Disappointed ...
Good selection of entrees. Disappointed because buffet was messy, shrimp cocktail wasn't firm, had to ask to order cocktails and coffee, floor was slippery and almost fell. Male attendant was in woman's restroom and yelled to me to wait while he stocked up on toilet paper in stalls. Workers were friendly and pleasant, but overall not worth $85 per person.

We made a Christmas dinner reservation, 8:45 being the earliest we could get.
The buffet was well picked over by the time we got there. Food wasn't being replenished dry old food - entirely disgusting and disappointing experience.
Reservations were being taken till 10pm, who knows what those people would have gotten.
We were also told at 9:15 that the buffet was shutting down at 9:30.
Less than 30 mins to eat Christmas dinner, then they decided to extend it a little longer, but by 10 it was done.
Will never return, $200+ dollars down the drain for pathetic tiny buffet - Christmas ruined.
NEVER AGAIN. We normally spend all our holiday events at the Moana Surfrider Beachhouse where the spread is lush and bountiful all the way up to the last seating for the same price, I guess we've been spoiled & I know where we will celebrate our next holiday.

We were seated 25 minutes past our reservation. Service was relatively slow with a few reminders provided to servers when items did not come out. Food was also rather pricey considering portion size and overall quality, but it also varied on the entree. Our party was also seated outside, which was cold and windy. Would have preferred indoor or more protective seating arrangement.

I met two lady friends for lunch. Patricia's chicken papaya salad with fruit had three strawberries that had mold on them. The server was notified and her meal was taken off the check. I had the fish taco's and the fish was VERY dry and over cooked. Fish should be moist and flake apart when pried with a fork. The spices used was over powering. There was nothing ourstanding about the dish. I ate only one of the taco's and did not mention it to the waitress. Afterward I was sorry that I didn't. I would have liked to talk with the cook. Not the server.
I will be back because of the ambiance and next time I will choose more wisely ask the server more questions when I order.

Our pre-Christmas reservation was for 11 people, one hour before buffet closed. We were there on time but the restaurant staff apologized that there would be about 10 minute wait because previous diners had not left on time as expected. We actually had to wait 20 minutes for the table, but the staff was very apologetic for the delay, the manager asked if we wanted water, and let us check out the buffet line while waiting. Once seated, and although we only had about 40 minutes left for the buffet, the wait staff was very friendly and welcoming , did not rush us one bit, and even provided the regular breakfast menu in case someone didn't want the buffet (which one person took advantage of.) Everyone in our party enjoyed themselves, had plenty to eat, and we never felt rushed. The manager even offered and did take pictures of our party on the lawn outside. Overall a wonderful dining experience, and kudos to the staff. (P.S. the only negative remark is about one of the males clearing the buffet items. He looked very grouchy and by his actions, seemed to be working as quickly as he could to clear off all items before anyone could get anything more!)

Great atmosphere, nice open air restaurant. well.... of course. its a resort and luxury hotel. Food isn't bad neither, but for the price and luxury hotel, should be better service....
I bring guests from different countries and everybody love the atmosphere and view, but never had a great experience with server or even reception desk at the front of restaurant. I never met the server who loves her/his job....kinda look. No smiles... One time I got "do you want coffee or not!?" we just got our table and menu..... So unfortunate.

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.
