If you have a trip to Kauai planned, now would be a good time to reserve seats at Kauai Ono! They are only open two nights a week and reservations go fast. We were fortunate to be able to take advantage of a cancellation and we weren't disappointed. The Set Menu varies, dependent on what is in season and available... More

We had the pleasure of working with Justin on our son's wedding rehearsal dinner. We had eaten at Kauai ONO the last time we were on the island and were impressed with the food and service, so when planning dinner for 48 we called Kauai ONO 560. Justin was very flexible and accommodated our every need. The dinner was amazing... More

One of the best, if not the best, meals we had during 10 days in Hawaii. Incredibly laid back but high quality presentation of simple yet elegant local food. From food to service and vibe, really well done. And at a price that is very competitive compared to what else is around. Can't recommend highly enough.

A friend recommended that we make reservations ahead of time to experience this. We are sure glad that we did. The food was absolutely delicious. With each course we were provided a brief explanation of what was is store for us. The tables are arranged in that you sit with others which makes it even more fun - getting to... More

We came during the winter holiday with our extended family, ranging in ages from 2 through 70+ and in palates from vegetarian to omnivore. This is a course menu restaurant, but other parties had children as well. The restaurant was very accommodating. Everything was delicious and local! We tried intriguing combinations, and everyone tried all the dishes. We were all... More

Overall, I loved this place. The concept is super cool (it's a farm-to-table pop-up restaurant in a tent near the side of the road and has communal seating). All the food we had was EXCELLENT! Of the five dishes, the third was slightly redundant (a salad after having had a salad w/ protein for the second dish), but was still... More

A great chance to meet other travelers while enjoying a delicious five course locally sourced meal. Do bring bug spray and make reservations early. If you are coming from the southern end of the island make sure you feel comfortable driving in the dark.

Do this. A really wonderful night. The food was excellent and well paced. I wish waiters back home in New York explained dishes with the care of our super hard working hosts. If you are really into fine dining or super refined food, check out Bar Acuda or one of the Resorts. If you're interested in learning about food culture... More

Ahhhhh-mazing!! If you are on the northern part of the island, BOOK THIS NOW! They only operate on Tuesday and Wednesday nights so make a reservation. This is farm to table dining under a white tent with communal table seating. For 5 courses, you can't beat the price and it is perfectly portioned. How they are able to time everything... More

This was a beautiful location outside in a tent under soft lighting. It was a predetermined 5 course menu. The chef did a great job! While the courses are different twist on basics, the chef does a great job of perfecting unique flavors that are delicious and not polarizing to a large audience. The service was great and beyond accommodating... More
