    Had a fantastic time at the Boardroom. Drinks were very creative and used only the freshest ingredients. I had a nonalcoholic mocktail and it was the best nonalcoholic drink I have ever had. Pupus were generous and delicious. Oysters were probably the best I've ever had, and I've spent a lot of time eating oysters in New Orleans. Amazing, tantalizing flavors in all the food we tried. It's obvious that the whole place is on board to deliver a quality experience, from the food and drinks on down to the low-key atmosphere- while still emphasizing a non-snooty excellence. This is not a pick up bar, and this is not a place where you'll be out of place if you are in a t-shirt and slippers. Totally recommended for a special night out.

    It’s a very cozy instagrammable spot. Drinks were fancy and well done. Service is great. The inside is very small, which makes the space feel very tight if you have several people sitting around a very tiny table. It was also extremely loud inside, but outside is a lot more relaxed and quiet due to the open air.

    Great service- friendly and welcoming. Ambiance is cute. Drinks are extremely overpriced and were not as good as anticipated. Charcuterie board was just ok. 80 bucks with tip for 2 drinks and a charcuterie board is not accessible to most.

    Cocktails were delicious, as always! Ahi tartare was amazing. The only down side was how tightly we were packed inside. We had 3 & the table beside us had 4, it was just too close. This made it very loud & we could hardly hear the person sitting across from us. We will definitely be back, but next time I will request the bar or outside.

    So wonderful to have something new in Kailua!! The food is delicious the staff is delightful. Exceptional service!! What a change from the way so many other places in Kailua have been with service and what they offer lately. (Seems like other restaurants are unwilling to let go of the “Covid conditions”. The Bored room is a lovely place to have cocktails and enjoy some yummy bites. Oysters were delicious and so fresh & the ahi so yum! Will definitely come back here regularly. Cheers to the new owners of a fabulous place in Kailua.

    I tried ordering 3 different appetizers and they were out at 9pm. The cocktail prices are higher than Honolulu prices. The Gin and Soda I had was fantastic. I’m sure I’ll be back. But it is a special occasion place not a place that is affordable enough to be a regular hang out place.

    Such a great experience! I love when you try a new place and it turns out to be amazing! Loved the atmosphere, vibe and especially the cocktails! You can tell a lot of thought and effort went into making the cocktails so delicious and interactive. Not to be dramatic but probably the best cocktails i’ve had on O’ahu, can’t wait to go back! The only thing that would make the experience better would be more dessert options, but that’s just because i’m a dessert person lol. Overall 10/10 recommend to everyone I know!! Stoked that Kailua finally has a cool bar!

    We had a fun experience, the service was ok but needs improvement, we got some drinks and waited about 20 mins for the rest because she said it didn’t print the ticket, but it happened again. Just needs a little more consistency on service but great ambiance, food was ok, needs more choices.

    Enjoyed another great night at The Boardroom having dinner with my daughter and her bf. This was their first time here and I'm sure it will not be their last as they enjoy great food and crafted cocktails. It was a busy Saturday night when we got seated (unfortunately at the coldest table in the room right by the a/c) but we still had a great time. Our server Mallory was good, even with how busy the tables were. She was informative and friendly while hustling all night. Enjoyed the beets and a dozen oysters to start. We were also treated to a platter of charcuterie (nice). They do offer daily specials for both food and cocktails so we decided to try the salmon crostini, which was nice (tho perhaps a bit light on the capers). Of course the bone marrow was a must and it certainly didn't disappoint. Creamy and slightly salty with a nice side of sweet onion confit. As always I ordered extra bread rounds. We were disappointed that they had run out of the bread pudding dessert. Gotta make a point to put in our dessert order to reserve it a soon as we get there, lol. Cocktails were really nice and we tried a wide sampling of them. I've listed them in my photos (used my daughter's IG pics since she has that touch). Epic night and I know I'll be back... will you? p.s. They just started opening for Sunday brunch from 10am - 3pm beginning today (4/10) and was told they're going to make sure they have the bread pudding as well as special pancakes. I'm sure all the food will be great.

    Mallory was our server and she was phenomenal. Great energy, super helpful, and really attentive. The atmosphere is casual but high end, which is perfect for any occasion. Everything was clean and well presented. All the staff we interacted with were friendly and helpful. The drinks were creative, well balanced, and beautiful. We had the chefs special of smoked salmon on crostini and it was wonderful. Definitely gonna become a staple for us!

    We were sat promptly outside after arriving. The waitress was super attentive. The outside table was wobbly and the staff kept walking behind my chair. My hamachi crudo was tasty but expensive for what you get. The bread on the bruschetta was soggy and tomato was acidic. My cocktail was beautiful and refreshing.
