We enjoyed it so much. The route there had me thinking The GPS was getting me lost. But when we arrived, l was pleased. The valet was unexpected and greatly appreciated. So funny that at the end of ou...r dinner, our car was waiting for us at the door engine running and the valet to help my wife in the car. Expensive? Yes, but we paid for the service, food, and view.
Oh, the food!? I thought we would still be hungry after our meal. Never so wrong. Nice size prime rib, none of the “pinky finger” mess.

The best restaurant on the island. I took my mom for her 53rd Birthday lol 53 by the sea for 53rd Birthday from the time we walked in we were so welcomed and treat like VIP our waiters and waitresses ...were extremely nice and even took pictures of me and mum outside. All together of 10 people around us were just the most professional and excellent and so friendly! They surprised Mommy with beautiful Birthday cake and I couldn’t ask for a better restaurant to spend her birthday at. Thank you again ! You guys are the best ! See More

I go to "53" each time I'm in Honolulu! It's always been a wonderful dining experience, the attention to detail is spot-on, food has yet to disappoint (tho' I did miss the creme brulee made in an coconut!!), the entrance with grand staircase and decor are beautiful and the view of the coastline and Diamond Head are gorgous!! I recommend "53" to friends living there and those traveling!! #MyFav See More

Very nice!
Had our Anniversary there. Not cheap but well worth it.

Devin, Steven, Naru and Tim were the best! They did the best I’ve ever seen. True professionals.

Our whole dining experience was superb. Our server Tim was excellent and the crustacean sandwich was delicious. Will be returning for a glass of Opus One and the burrata!

Last minute luncheon for Fathers Day
My first time to come here for lunch
A bit stressful I have 2 vegetarian so...
No entree for them we end up ordering
2 ceasar salad - waiter said I have to ask the chef
It's not on the menu - garlic fries - have to ask the chef bcz not ordering a burger with it
Tofu salad - cubes of breaded tofu with watercress
blah.. pick & ate 4 cubes that's it - onion soup with
crostini by the time it got 2 our table it's 3
tablespoons & 1 soaked crostini. I have chicken
a bit dry.:)
It's not full house but no effort to accommodate
a vegetarian dish. Waiter hit & miss seems like he's always rushing forgetting stuff -
Best part is dessert !!! Berries with ice cream
View is amazing - 👍👍👍 coming back for
dinner - more choices unless they change menu

I took my aunt that was visiting from the mainland here for her birthday lunch. It was super easy to make reservations online and I was able to ask for a special birthday dessert in the comments when... making reservations online. The ambiance and look of the restaurant is so regal and impressive upon arrival. The view from our seat was spectacular! We were greeted so warmly by everyone as we entered. They had a lunch deal for a 3 course meal for $38 that you can not beat! I ordered a mai tai and can honestly say it's the best one I've ever had. They brought my aunt a special birthday dessert with a personalized Happy Birthday message on it! The waiter offered to take pictures of us on the lanai which made for an amazing background. This is a must go to place in Honolulu! See More

Everything was superb! Held my daughter's baby shower here and from start to finish the process was excellent. Shawn Chon was very attentive and prompt as we planned the luncheon. The food was exce...llent! The filet mignon was the most tender filet I've ever had. I'm not a big red meat eater, but this one was superb! Our waiter, Jordan, was so polite and accommodating contributing to our wonderful experience. I would not hesitate to host another event here. First class service all the way! Oh, and don't forget the fabulous view! See More

It was a grand experience! Will definitely be back. The staff were all friendly, accommodating. Fine dining but not stuffy. It felt like home❤️ Just one thing on my wish list, wished they give you tow...elettes or warm towel before or after dinner. Especially when having seafood meal. Overall, it was a fabulous birthday celebration for my friend and the whole group!!! Mahalo 53 by the Sea for making it memorable for us! See More
