    We went back to Stage but had a different and lackluster experience. We waited a while to be greeted at the waiting area. It took a while for our drinks to come; which may have led to diluted drinks. The food we order was the same quality as last time. Good wasn’t crisp or served hot; at best, the food was warm. Like the drinks, the entrees took a while to be served and were cold.

    Chose this venue to celebrate our daughter's homecoming after two years of internship on the East Coast. Great menu selections. Our dinner choices included Kurobuta Pork Chops, Beef Wellington, Duck Breast and Mahi. As an appetizer, we chose the Garlic Toast. For dessert we shared Chocolate Haupia ice cream cake, Lilikoi Creamsicle and Mac nut Bar. Very happy with our choices as everything was cooked perfectly, tasted wonderful and of course the presentation was on-point and IG worthy! The food took awhile to get to the table but the wait was worth it. Love the ambience as well, so artsy and modern. Friendly and couteous wait staff. Thank you Crystal for the complimentary Salmon Tataki! Will definitely be back to dine again.

    Overall, my company and I enjoyed our experience at Stage Restaurant & Amuse. There were a slight miss of dishes that didn’t live up to par like the rest of the dishes we ordered but that just goes to show everyone has their own favorites and particular preferences. I most certainly enjoyed the patatas bravas whereas my friends do not enjoy the katsuoboshi/bonito flakes on it but I LOVED it. There was a lot of food to try and the star of the show was the pork chop (what a wild card), but it was so juicy and flavorful. And the accompanying pineapples gave it that extra oomph of savory & sweet components.

    Hadn't been to Stage Restaurant in 3 years and it was great to find improvement in their food and service. We loved all the items we ordered: Salmon Tataki, Hamakua Ali'i Mushroom salad; Misoyaki Butterfish and their special item of the day---ribeye steak. We look forward to booking them again soon for a special occasion.

    We got there late so the restaurant was on the quiet side, which suited us fine. The food was wonderful - very tasty. We had two sides and shared the swordfish on risotto special. Loved the Tres Leches dessert with blueberries and ground "crunch". We were pleasantly surprised by a Birthday surprise dessert of Tiramisu on a beautifully decorated "Happy Birthday" Platter. Loved it!

    We hadn’t been to Stage since before the pandemic. We were very pleasant surprised with the creative and delicious dishes. We started with the mushrooms with goat cheese and the potatoes. Very good. The butterfish was thoroughly enjoyed as was the fresh catch swordfish with mushroom risotto. The beef Wellington special was superb. We ended with the dreamsicle and chocolate bar desserts. Great finish to a fine meal.

    If you have not been to Stage lately, you are missing out. Everything about them has improved. Their menu is updated with specials and their deserts are special. Their ceasar salad is one of the best.

    Please please try Amuse and Stage Restaurant! Listen, all of my senses were touched and enlightened. The decor is like nothing I have ever seen before. It is modern edgy eclectic! The chandelier over my table was stunning! I want to purchase this piece. Our waitress Madison was attentive and personable. We started with the Escargot. Wonderful dish. Next for dinner we had the specials I had the short rib with Yukon potatoes and mushrooms. My husband had the Lamb. The chef out did themselves. Every bite tender and savory. My tongue literally jumped on the first bite! No lie The lamb was perfectly cooked. For dessert we shared the Tres Leches cake. I’m from El Paso so I know tres leches. This version was an upscale take on a traditional tres. Loved the ube and blueberry addition. Not to fond of the crunch topping. Tad too hard for me. The meal was effortless but that crunch baby was work. This was our last date night O’ahu as we are moving to the mainland. I am so glad we ended in such a positive experience. Mahalo Amuse Mahalo Hawaii for the Aloha!

    Made reservations assuming it was for the restaurant. NOT. It assumed it was for the wine bar. There’s no preference to check off. Warning the booths seats can do a number on your back. The cushions are too soft, you’ll sink in then start to slide off downward toward the floor. I was fighting to stay UP to reach the table. I ended with a back strain the next morning. Food and presentation was very well prepared. The wait help was spot on it. One of my fave spots.

    Stage never fails to provide a memorable experience. Food quality, service are always over the top and tonight was no exception. We had planned to host visiting friends but when they were unable to attend due to illness, we decided to go anyway and it was perfect. Food service was slowed but our server immediately remedied with extra drinks! Perfection

    It wasn’t very busy (maybe 4 tables in the restaurant). We were told upon greeting that the kitchen would be closing shortly. The server took our apps and drink orders and went to a different newly seated table. My party was ready to order a couple of min later but she was tied up at the new table. Another person came to take our order (maybe the MOD?). She gave off a rushed vibe, which was annoying because we had been waiting at least 10 min to order. After ordering, we waited nearly 30 min for our entrees. The food was unfortunately just not worth it. The only memorable dish was the cheesy garlic bread appetizer, and the tres leche cake was pretty good too. The garlic shrimp pasta was lackluster. The furniture was also uncomfortable to sit on. Our server was really nice but the service just seemed very slow, especially considering the fact that business was slow. I had to walk up to the bar to close out because we were waiting to close out for too long at our table. Really bummed about the whole experience to be honest

    Amuse wine bar is my go-to place for happy hour with friends, coworkers, or a nice meal with my husband. We love the option of the wine tasting machines that we can try using the card and also their wide selection of specially curated wine tasting we can order. The servers have always been friendly and attentive, and the food arrives quickly. Our favorites are the steak (the sauce is amazing!!), sliders, truffle fries, and brussel sprouts. This last visit, we also ordered the grilled cheese sandwich and that was very tasty as well! We can always count on a very enjoyable time at Amuse!

    Half the food was good, the other half was just okay. Service was terrible… we spent 25 mins just waiting to get our order taken and then another 20 mins to get out glasses or wine. The fries were like styrofoam dipped in oil. When we asked out server what cheeses were on the charcuterie, she told us the wrong cheeses. We wouldn’t have ordered it if we had known the actual cheeses that came with it. Overall, we felt like there was no one in there but us and a couple other parties, and a ton of workers that all refused to acknowledge us. As someone in the industry, I am very disappointed.
