Plumeria Beach House Ratings and Reviews
Tough to beat the location: you can almost dip your toes in the water while dining, but it's not just about the view (and we were not staying at the resort). We ended up doing a main course (Patagonian white fish) and several sides/salads, including their take on Brussels sprouts (yum), wild rice, asparagus, and grilled local veggies): all very good, accompanied by a cocktail and glass of wine. Jonna and the rest of the staff provided great service. Very pleasant evening.
Nice but noisy. Food - in my case the sushi - was super fresh and tasty; portions were generous. Service was prompt and courteous. Seating on the lanai is much preferable to seating inside as the noise level aside does get high. And why would you go to the Plumeria Beach House if not to enjoy the outdoor ambience of overlooking the Pacific Ocean?
Although the food was good, our service was TERRIBLE!!! I've never had a server/waitress who gave every impression that she did not want to be there. Her name is Jonna. She did not address us for almost 15 minutes after we were seated and because we were seated right next to their station, we could hear what all the servers were saying and they could also hear what we were saying. My husband and I openly asked where our server was and although she was standing directly in back of us, she ignored us and did not come to greet us until 15 minutes had passed. She was not friendly, and forgot everything we requested. we asked for lemons the 2x times that she came by but she never brought it. the bus boy was her only saving grace. he did his best to clear our table but even then, we were still stuck with moving plates to the side so we could eat. she was only friendly when she brought the bill....then she charged me 3 times the amount. I asked her to void it and after another 15 minutes went by she came back with the same charge draft with her handwritten "void" on it and said it was taken care of. I went to speak to the person in charge that evening and she was not helpful either explaining they couldn't do anything about having the item voided from my account now. For a restaurant in a "high end" hotel, their service and friendliness are serious lacking! I had a reservation for Saturday as well and canceled it...I could not subject myself to another evening of bad service. If i were in my right mind, i would not even have tipped her but I felt sorry for the bus boy.
Everything was fine except I wish the waiter came around to bus the plates away and give me more water. I don't like to complain but have found that is the only way for them to get better. That is how I have become who I am by learning from my mistakes.
I was a waiter for 20 years and even worked at the Plumeria café 50 years ago and loved it.
I will always bring my clients back because I love the food. I did not realize you had butterfish on the buffet! Wow that is special and an item I will come back for.
One of the iconic spots on Oahu, famous for its beach front location in the tony garden suburb Kahala, and for hosting 5 lively adult dolphins ! The cuisine is excellent, offering fresh seafood , high quality fruit and veggies, but beyond the satisfying food and pleasant ambiance it also gives diners a chance to view the sea critters and the resort beach.
The restaurant has one entire wall open and facing the Pacific. The bar, buffet set up, and about half the tables are inside, the rest are set up on the patio beyond the open wall, so indoor and outdoor tables are available. We had lunch on a Wednesday, the day of the week the Plumeria offers a buffet of several seafood curries with salad and desert bars, besides their usual a la carte menu. The buffet looked great, but we stuck to the menu .
The location of this restaurant is just wonderful. It has a clear view of the ocean from almost any table. I have dined there several times. It used to be much better and more traditional, but they have let it slide a bit lately. It is still wonderful to sit there on a nice sunny and breezy day in Hawaii. Foodies will not be happy with the quality of the food, but for most of us it is ok. Prices are a bit high, but the scenery makes it worthwhile and servers are fairly accommodating.
Lovely restaurant and we enjoyed the food and ambiance. However one person in our party is disabled and the elevator closest from lobby to downstairs was not working. This meant a long and slow walk to another (farther away) elevator with a (wheelchair) to our table.
When we finally arrived at our table the chilled Bloody Mary drinks were a welcome sight and much enjoyed. The food was delicious and creative.
Coming to this hotel is always a treat and I hope the elevator is restored for use soon.
The food was excellent! Everything was fresh and delicious. I especially enjoyed the crab legs, of course, but the pasta was SO tasty. I was a little disappointed that we were ushered out to turn the table for an incoming reservation (we were there for 2 hours), but I understand.
We had an 11 am reservations. The reception desk was swamped... by the time we were seated it was almost 11:25. Our waitress was very polite but encouraged us to get our food soon as we because the staff was going to start clearing the food by 12 pm. The crepes and waffles were cold and hard. Perhaps the staff could have encouraged us to order from the menu instead of having the brunch because the food would be hotter, fresher and we wouldn't have felt rushed.
Birds kept trying to eat our food from the table... it wasn't pleasant.
Nice place for business lunch but the wait staff were not as attentive and efficient. At times we did not see our waitress for 20 minutes and wanted the bill to get back to work. The other staff were talking and hanging out together in the middle of the dining room so we had to have someone go up to them to ask for the check.
