Contemporary American
2022 James Beard Award Winner for Best Chef Northwest & Pacific.

Rooted in the local farm-to-table movement — a place where seasonality and culinary tradition are celebrated in tandem. One part Hawaii and one part Brooklyn. The atmosphere shares a brasserie feel with a laid-back island sensibility—a celebration and homage to all of our favorite things we enjoy eating and drinking.

Crafted with brick & reclaimed wood, our urban Hawaiian farmhouse features an open kitchen, lush plant wall, brick walls, and lots of natural light in a historic Chinatown building. The bar mixes classic and modern cocktails with artisanal flare with a well-curated wine list.

    Very disappointing experience. Decided to come here for my birthday tonight with my family and was really looking forward to it because of a few friends who raved about it. Food was good but service was unfortunately very poor. Our server Gregorio was not very attentive. We had to ask for water multiple times and had to wave to get his attention when we needed things. i.e no soup spoon given with the soup, drink refills, sugar for tea that we requested when we ordered but was forgotten. Our reservation was at 7:15pm and we didn’t leave until around 9:45pm because of the wait time for food and just over all lack of service. He pretty much just told us about the specials and didn’t come back for awhile then just took the order (no suggestions, upsell, etc) We did get checked on by the manager once and were given a dessert with a candle (after my mom went inside to tell the manager it was my birthday) mind you we had put in the notes that it was my birthday but that wasn’t acknowledged at all during our dinner until we mentioned it. I really didn’t want to make a deal but being in the restaurant industry myself as a server I just feel like it was a really sucky birthday experience. Plus I’m pregnant and just wanted to have a nice time out with my family. The best part was honestly probably the hostess who was sweet, kind, and very polite. After dinner we ordered desserts and a coffee. Got the desserts but no coffee and was brought a complimentary mango guriguri with a candle which we got charged for on the bill and had to ask for it to be removed. We also got charged for the coffee we never received with dessert. Overall sad about the experience. I understand we all have good and bad days. I could tell our server was not really into it. It was muggy out as we were seated outside so I get how that would put anyone in a mood but really expected more. I’d come back and try again, maybe sit at the bar for more timely service.

    Generally great in terms of food. Eating space is small so you are definitely rushed out after your food arrives. In fact, I had my drink (only second and $18) taken away before I had even finished. Overall, great food and atmosphere but plan on dessert someplace else because you will get the bums rush if you try to savour and enjoy.

    Everything we tried here was excellent! We had the chicken liver mousse, the steak Tartar, coconut prawns (like no other), and the ribeye steak. For dessert, house made vanilla bean ice cream and delicious caffe americano! The service was outstanding as well. Our waiter, Kevin was knowledgeable about the complete menu and very personable as well. We will return!

    I eat at Fete whenever I come over from Lāna‛i. Last night, I had the Uku special. I've caught and eaten lots and lots of uku; never had any of it taste as ono as Fete's. The fish was perfectly cooked, and the accompanying sauce(s) were outstanding. No question: my favorite O'ahu restaurant.

    Unfortunately it was another mediocre experience. The fete spread starter was good, cocktails were innovative, and dessert was great (monkey-su), but the fish special was overcooked and pricey. Plus, the waiter at the bar kept asking us if we wanted more or could clear plates, but in a way that wasn’t helpful, rather meant to push us out the door.

    The food is fantastic, everything we tasted was delicious. The service was so-so though. We waited about 10 minutes to be seated because there was no host/hostess at the front reception. The other issue was that we had a birthday celebration which we put on the reservation, but there was absolutely no mention or greeting with a happy birthday. Why bother asking in the reservation it if no one is going to check it?

    The restaurant was okay. Ambient was very noisy. I had high expectations for this place because a lot of people recommended it. The highlight of the meal was the poimochi donuts and the kulolo ice cream. Steak tartare was bland, toast was burnt. The egg for the Korean Bavette was over cooked. The steak taste like a teriyaki beef from zippy marinated in gochojong sauce. The carbonara was dry and very peppery. All in all, it was an interesting experience but I wouldn’t remember it.

    Fete is one of my most fav restaurants to dine at, esp for special occasions. Even with a week in advance reservations the inside main dining tables were all taken so we chose outside dining. There were way too many city buses passing by at 6:00 pm making conversations difficult at times. Fete - your tables are getting waaayyyy too close to each other now. i've dine here a number of times and the tables outside as well as inside were not THIS CLOSE. uncomfortably too close - good thing the couple next to us were friendly. my fish special and salad special of the day were excellent. my husband was a little disappointed with the Pasta Carbonara and i have to admit it was a little flat last night. i've had it couple times before and last night's was a little lacking. i know Fete is getting very popular and is usually always busy but please give your customers a bit more physical space. deeply appreciated our patient and fun waitperson, Teresa. others helping could've been a bit more helpful like the young man who served the main dishes - he should've asked if we wanted fresh ground pepper, esp for the pasta.

    Cute little place in Chinatown, will definitely be coming back! Heard great things about the steak tartare and it lived up to the hype even the bread was so good. We got the carbonara and rissotto and they were both delicious!!! Someone seated next to us got the korean bavette and it also looked really good. Took a while to get the drinks but they were worth the wait. The pithy in pink was the best!

    Our group of 7 ladies had lunch to celebrate 2 birthdays. Our server, Shelley was outstanding - very responsive, friendly and efficient. Food was delicious - it was 1st time for 4 people in our group so was a nice treat at a new place. A small piece of cheesecake or basic dessert to celebrate the birthdays would have been nice and would have added the special touch. We ordered 2 dessert items and they put candles on the desserts. All in all, it was a very enjoyable lunch!

    We loved our dinner experience at Fete. The library was a great place to be able to converse, and the service was superb and genuine. 2 of us had the Mahi entree that was served on top of Okinawan sweet potatoes. The potatoes looked delicious- nicely browned, but they were way undercooked. Our server and manager were happy to replace the potatoes, but unfortunately, the second serving was also hard and undercooked. It was unfortunate, but things like this do happen. We were graciously compted 2 desserts and dollars off the 2 entrees. We look forward to going back.

    I loved everything about it! We were seated outside right next to the host stand but the action was good to watch. Inside looked a little tight so I was happy. It was raining but umbrellas gave us pretty good coverage, we did get a little rained on but no biggie. Menu was super creative and the Carbonara was the best I’ve ever had. My Korean steak with rice and a soft egg was yummy. And we didn’t miss the rocky road ice cream:)

    It was our first time to Fete. All four of us fell in love with the ambiance, the waiter, and the food! The food tasted amazing, the service beautifully plated, and we felt nourished and well fed. And for anyone with food sensitivities, the quality of the meat, produce, was off the charts. Best restaurant on Oahu for sure.
