The Trendiest Restaurants in Honolulu, Hawaii

A leader in Hawaii’s farm-to-table culinary scene, Merriman’s Honolulu is a treat. The restaurant feels like a melange between a neighborhood bistro & an old Hawaiian establishment. Lively, urbane, and whimsical are how we would describe it.

53 By the Sea

One of HNL’s most scenic dining experiences, this waterfront restaurant boasts views of Waikiki, Diamond Head, and the Pacific. They serve tasty Hawaiian Regional Cuisine.

NatuRe Waikiki

Sustainability is chef Nae Ogawa’s top priority at her new island French restaurant, and each dish and design detail reflects a commitment to minimizing environmental impact, reducing waste and supporting local purveyors. The historic building’s white masonry walls and modest art deco-Asian decorative elements have been preserved, while inside earth-toned design and polished driftwood counters are accented by dried flowers and terrace plants. The six-course tasting menu is available with local meat and seafood, or entirely plant-based.

Chef Chris Kajioka has captured HNL’s hearts and bellies once more with his updated twist on a classic neighborhood cafe. Kajioka says the spacious, minimalist design with natural wood tables and banquettes was inspired by a new wave of French bistros in Paris, like Septime. The five-course prix fixe menu is remarkably affordable — don’t miss the fresh sourdough served with black garlic butter.

MW Restaurant

Slat wood walls, bamboo and cement tiles create clean, modern lines at this second-floor restaurant at Velocity Honolulu. The simple, natural décor allows colorful contemporary Hawaiian cuisine, including mochi-crusted Kona kampachi and Southeast Asian braised beef bao buns, to shine.
