"The dining experience at BluEmber was wonderful and unique. The 29 dollar 3 course menu offered a wide array of choices each with an excellent flavor profile. It also showcased several chef farmers market inspired dishes that were delicious. A live band was playing on Friday night which was great and for those traveling with children there was a buffet set up for them that seemed very popular. Not the best spot for a quite date night but if you are looking for a fun vibe with great food you won't go wrong here."

Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich's flagship restaurant, located on Waverly Place in Greenwich Village, opened to great acclaim in 1998 and is as bustling and popular as ever. It offers three-star dining that redefines and reinvents the principles of Italian cuisine for 21st century America. An epic, landmark wine list, an exciting, quintessentially New York dining room and expert, attentive and cordial service make a table at Babbo one of New York’s prized possessions.

"After numerous attempts to get a reservation I was finally able to get a table at Babbo and it was worth the wait. The food was amazing and unique in each course and the portion sizes were very reasonable for the caliber of restaurant. The service was very attentive and the sommelier suggested the perfect wine to go with the meal. For those looking for a truly outstanding dinning experience and exceptional cuisine you will not go wrong with Babbo"

Consistently voted as one of Hawaii's best restaurants, James Beard award-winning Chef Alan Wong uses the freshest locally grown produce and the bounty of the Pacific Ocean to create local favorites with a contemporary twist. Inspired by the unique ethnic influences found in Hawaii today, his menu reflects Hawaii's cultural diversity of its people, traditions, and lifestyles. "Taste Hawaii."

"Wow! That is the best way to describe eating at Alan Wong's. The service was excellent and professional but it is the food that is the star of the show. Everything on the menu combines unique flavors that pack a punch. The Kalua Pig bruschetta was superb and had a wonderful spice. The tenderloin duo was perfectly cooked and the chili sauce served with it was masterfully executed. Dessert was a wonderful delight of texture and flavor. Overall you will leave FULL and despite the size the portions are not skimpy. For those looking for a nicer diner in Honolulu you cannot go wrong here."

This popular off-shoot of local chef Alan Wong is a favorite place for a relaxing dinner, lunch or weekend get-together with friends, where you'll find Hawaii favorites prepared with the freshest island ingredients and flavors influenced by the local style we all grew up with.

"The food and service at Alan Wong's Pineapple Room were both excellent. The menu was varied and represented a modern take on Hawaiian cuisine. The service was courteous without being overbearing. This is a great way to sample the cuisine of Alan Wong without the difficulty of trying to get into his main restaurant."

"Morimoto's is always a great dining experience when in Honolulu. The food is exquisite and bursting with flavor. The portion size is very good relative to the price and you will not leave hungry. This time the dining room was a little on the hot side but that has not been a problem before. We will be back each time we are in town."

"Founding Farmers always provides a wonderful meal with great options and diverse drink menu. The service was a little slow although every table was taken and it was a holiday weekend. We will be back."

"The food at Paladar was very good and the portion sizes are large. The service at this location was truly abysmal. Our server gave us tons of attitude and looked at people like they were crazy when they asked for all rice and no beans or when we asked him to split the check between two credit cards. It was like he had never worked in a restaurant before. Not sure if we would return after that experience."

d.k Steak House is a local Hawaiian Regional steak house specializing in Dry-aged steaks. We are O‘ahu’s first Dry-Aging Room where we dry age on premise ---which imparts a sweeter, fuller, and more robust flavor as well as tenderizing the meat. We use only USDA high-grade beef- Vintage Natural which has NO hormones, NO antibiotics, NO steroids, the beef is all natural. Our double broiler grilling process ensures high-temperature cooking that seals in juices and enhances the natural flavor of the beef. We offer classic sides dishes, and at d.k Steak House we also offer a beautiful sunset view overlooking Waikiki beach.

blue is redefining the steakhouse. You’ll find stunning decor, two high-energy indoor and outdoor bars, and seven unique private dining spaces, which can accommodate up to 420 guests. Add in a redesigned menu with much more to offer and you have a cooler, hipper kind of steakhouse. <br /><br />blue is convenient to major highways leading from the Lehigh Valley, metro New Jersey, Philadelphia and the Poconos.

"We had a wonderful mother's day dinner here and Blue remains one of the top spots in the Lehigh Valley. The service is always spot on and attentive without being overbearing. Our server was good fun to talk with and kept the coffee and drinks flowing. The food is excellent as always and the steaks were perfectly cooked with the Hula Pie dessert a favorite of the table. Well worth the trip."

"Sarabeth's is always a pleasant dining experience with multiple locations around the city. This was my first visit to the Tribecca location and I was not disappointed. The service was courteous and efficient. The food was well prepared as always and the portions size are generous for NYC. There are not many early morning sit down breakfast options so if you find yourself in Tribecca I highly recommend this one."
