Plumeria Beach House Ratings and Reviews
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.
Nothing is "reasonably priced" in Hawaii, but the Thursday Kama'aina Dinner here provides good value. A well stocked salad bar and a dessert bar full of tropical flavors are included with an entree selected from a generous list of choices. Service is superb. You can sit at your table inside or under a broad umbrella, watching the sunset or the starry sky as the gentle waves roll in nearby. There's even a low-keyed live entetainer singing Hawaiian melodies accompanied on his guitar. Paradise!
Was disappointed not being able to have the breakfast buffet . It was about 10:50 by the time we got seated and was told we had 10 minutes before the buffet closes. They should inform the customer or indicate on the restaurant info that patron should be there at least 30 minutes before closing. Not thrilled with the lobster benedict....hardly any lobster. Not worth the price.
The restaurant was very crowded at 9:00am. Staff was rushed trying to keep up. Not the most attentive service-had to ask twice for coffee. I wouldn't make a special trip again for breakfast. Always for lunch, though. The view is one of the must see's on Oahu. I live here and there are better values for the entree's we ordered: eggs Bennie and a cheese omelette. Nothing special about either. Although I don't eat there, you can probably get same entrees with more choices at a Denny's.
The appetizers must have been pre-cooked and just re-heated (and not very well at that) as our server said the kitchen was "backed upped". However, the appetizers were served within a few minutes of ordering. The problem was that they were barely warm (ravioli and lobster cakes). The bread was much warmer than the appetizers. The wine by the glass is over priced ($18) for what was received. I had the Cab and it was highly tannic with just an average size pour. The entrees were very good. I would not get the cheesecake dessert (where was the cheese?). If you want to spend in excess of $100/pp with a view of the ocean go to Orchids at the Halekulani instead.
Sunday buffet service was very good. We enjoyed breakfast meats and omelette bar, fruits & pastries. Server Justin was courteous, thoughtful & cheerful. Also enjoyed eggs Benedict instead of buffet. It was good to have a choice as some people aren't hungry enough for a buffet.
I have been dining at this restaurant for over ten years and the service and food are declining. At brunch yesterday, the services was very slow, food was mediocre. They only had one person at the omelet bar, and I had to go up 6 times to try to get her to cut me some ham. She was so busy making omelettes she did not pay attention to me trying to get some ham cut. My 90 yr old mother's food took so long to come that I had to give her some food I had from the buffet. Also, the bird problem is terrible in the restaurant, with birds flying and walking all over the floor. The buffet array is getting to be very stale and hum drum for $40 per person.
Took my daughters and mom for a girls day out brunch. Pleasantly surprised at the prices. Being it's located at the Kahala, I was ready to pay for the ambiance/setting. My oldest daughter opted for the buffet which had a decent spread. The rest of us ordered off the regular menu. The eggs benedict was cooked to perfection, smothered with yummy hollandaise sauce. I ordered the corned beef hash brown with poached eggs. The hash was crunchy on the outside, soft and tasty on the inside. My mom ordered the pancakes and a side order of bacon, both were delicious. The view of course was breathtaking, the food scrumptious, and the company perfect. We strolled around the hotel grounds after, watching the dolphins and taking in the peaceful surroundings. You get 4-hours free parking with validation. A wonderful afternoon with my three favorite girls.
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 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.
