Hawaii Mom Blog: Tommy Bahama's

Tommy Bahama's

I don't know about you, but if I'm going to have dinner in Waikiki, I'd prefer it to be outdoors to enjoy the beautiful Hawaii weather and scenery.  You'll find all this on the rooftoop of the new Tommy Bahama restaurant in Waikiki.  

Past the first floor of the retail shop you will find tables and booths on the second floor.  Take the winding staircase to the roof (there's an elevator too) and you'll be exposed to a second bar, a very cool sandpit lounge, and outdoor seating.

The Tommy Bahama eatery reflects the laid back resort lifestyle associated with the brand.  The drink list was extensive and I really enjoyed their sangria.  Our server explained that the restaurant is known for their seafood; one of the popular items being their coconut shrimp.  

I kept seeing servers walk around with an amazing looking dessert tray so I decided on the blackened fish tacos so I would have some room for dessert.  Our food took awhile to come out.  It could have been that our order was behind the rest of the restaurant, but it did seem unusually long.  But being that they only opened 3 days ago, we just waited.  

Our server let us know that she was checking on our food which showed us it wasn't our imagination and then a manager came by to offer us dessert to make up for the long wait.  That was really nice that they recognized the problem. 

My fish tacos were delicious!  While the tortillas could have been a little softer, I really liked the  heat from the chipotle sauce.  My dish also came with a side of pudding with fried plantains in it.  Yum!  It helped cut the heat of the tacos. 

We had already decided on dessert: a fabulous looking pineapple creme brulee served in a pineapple and a slice of mountain-high pina colada cake.  Unfortunately, the dessert took a long time to arrive too.  Although I really liked the chunks of pineapple in the creme brulee, I thought it was overly sweet.  The pina colada cake was perfect and huge so definitely share it.               

Overall, I had a very nice time at dinner and my favorite part of it was the restaurant's rooftop ambience.  I would definitely return.  It's a perfect place to chill with friends and have conversation over drinks.  The burger looks really good too.   

Validated parking is available in the Bank of Hawaii lot across the restaurant.  Don't flinch when they charge you $6.

There's an elevator, but take the stairs.
Booths and tables on the second floor.

Love this decor!

Love the sand pit and the view.
