    Actually ate lunch and dinner on consecutive days. The view is fantastic all around but the ocean views are the best if you can get a table on that side. I believe they opened in March and it has been busier as time goes on. We had the Loup de Mer and lobster and both were delicious. The highlight of the dinner was when the fish was brought out......it was deboned right at the table! I highly recommend Pesca for a nice dinner. It is pricey but worth it.

    Pesca’s was a great experience. I had just wish that the waiter had explained to us the menu and the experience of purchasing a fresh fish. This was our first time here so we had no clue.

    Views are outstanding. However. Online the representation of menu prices are misleading. They’ve not updated their prices to 2022. Actual prices are exorbitant. Example: Dover sole- a La carte with no sides from $65-80 depending on the weight. Dover sole is thin with not much “meat on it” - good luck being full on that for dinner. Add in a couple of sides and your entree is well over $100++ per person. Factor in Veg sides around $18+ per side…this is without alcohol - or appetizers…. Too rich for me… Also. Most disappointing the service. We had a 7pm booking. Arrived 6:50pm. Seated right away. Ordered appetizers & cocktails. Cocktails took 20mins to get to our table. Appetizers took until 7:50pm to arrive at the table after we complained how long we had sat there., There was no excuse. The restaurant was 1/4 full Won’t see me back ever….RIP OFF

    Didn’t have a chance to experience their food. Although we made a reservation hours in advance, when we got there, after standing around with a bunch of others that were there waiting the manager finally came over and said “Sorry everyone, we don’t have any staff to seat and feed you”. I totally understand the staffing issue as it’s happening in a lot of places. But to make your guests all show up, stand around waiting, then come out and tell them this.. now they have to try and search for another opening at a nearby restaurant last minute. Some folks mentioned they had been already standing around waiting for 45 minutes or more to be seated. The manager did absolutely nothing for any of the people waiting.. just a simple “I’m sorry I don’t want to seat you and you have to wait another 45 minutes or more for your food..”. Anyway, we went across the street to Chart House and had a delicious meal and they had a great band playing! You should definitely check them out instead as you are likely to have a better time and better meal!

    Love the food, kind of pricey though. Service is always good. View defends where I sit. Sometimes I see top of the roof more than the ocean. Valet parking people has bad attitude all the time and that’s the reason I will stop going there.

    Don't go! - it's so tempting.. as the view is stunning. . if you get a table with a sunset view. The service was horrid! - 1st - we were sat in the back with a city view - the restaurant wasn't completely full. Talk about rushing.. The 1st waiter wanted our order for food before he took the drink orders - then we ordered drinks, they never came but he came back to take our food order! We asked for a new server - she was nice but did not know the product. For a Mediterranean restaurant they only had 3 pasta dishes, all seafood and could not deviate unless i wanted noodles and butter - they didn't have any veg offerings. Hubby ordered Sole, it was ok. I ordered filet and it was so dry and over-done - we just didn't have the bandwidth to ask them to return it by that time. we passed on desert - what a waste of 1 1/2 hours and $400+ - give it a pass.

    We went to Pescatarian a year ago and learned that they had recently opened. Based on this and emerging from COVID restrictions, it was understandable that there would be some kinks in the service. The food was terrific and the owner went from table to table to greet guests as well as offer his apology for the service. A year later, we would have expected that the service would have been improved. However, that was not the case and it was exponentially worse. The young waiter who had our table and the couple at the next table seemed lost and not attentive. The other couple sat for 2 hrs from their seating only receiving drinks and bread, which didn’t arrive until 1 hr in. They left without eating stating that this was their worst dining experience. Part of the delay was a lack of communication, possibly a slow kitchen and an untrained waiter. Luck for us, another waiter stepped in periodically to service our table which expedited things. We later found out he was the manager. Had he not, our night may have been just as disastrous. We thanked him on the way out and although we tipped on the bill as it’s usually pooled to other staff, we tipped him directly as well. Our meal was great, service was not.

    The steak was bland, asked for medium rare but got pretty much half medium rare and Raw. The appetizer took about 45 minutes to come out and entrees took. About another 50 minute. Was going to cancel the order. But by the time the server came back the food finally came out. Took couple bites then left ..

    I read past reviews of dining at Pesca Waikiki top of Ilikai the good and bad reviews. Though it is pricey for me, it’s something worth doing on my 11th wedding anniversary and believe me everything went as expected. We enjoyed the scenic view of Diamond Head, surf spots we usually surf at (had surf), the service, atmosphere and of course the meal. I got the sea food tower, grilled tako, garlic rice, ahi sashimi, veggie chips tower and oysters on a half shell. I guess we were the lucky ones as the food was prepared and tasted great. I’m not the kind of person that’ll pay for unnecessary things, but this was something meaningful to remember.

    Nice restaurant. However, the noise level in the area we sat in was terrible. Couldn't speak to other party at table without yelling. The waiters also added to the noise when announcing specials, etc. From our experience, I'd recommend planning on staying there 3-hours and be with a conversationalist as there is a long gap between appetizers/salad and the main course. The food is okay for the price. However, you make up the difference by purchasing more drinks than planned due to the long delay till the main course is brought to the table. We had to ask the waiter for take-out boxes because our pumpkin carriage was waiting and we couldn't stay longer. FRIDAY: They turn off the lights for Waikiki fireworks. Of course, our main course was delivered minutes before the lights went out. Suggest they have candles on each table so that those who want to eat through the fireworks display can do so and not sit in the dark while the main course gets cold.

    The service, ambiance, and sunset views are unequaled. Loved the International Violette and Mai Tai drinks. The 6 pieces of ahi sashimi were cut thick. All seafood was fresh, and they presented each fish on ice. We chose the Madai (Tai), acqua pazza (poached) style. The final prep is done tableside. We also enjoyed the filet mignon and mixed vegetables. Server Paul was professional as well as the many helpers. They gave our special occasion that extra touch.

    Had just arrived at hotel where restaurant located after full day of travel. Beautiful view from 30th floor but not into their fish style of service. You buy a whole fish to be prepared. We split a ribeye that was over cooked not medium rare. Perhaps our fault for ordering beef not fish but It’s on the menu should know how to prepare. Everything is a la carte. Would not recommend.
