Mediterranean
Mediterranean cuisine is a way of life, one that respects the land, the people, and the way we eat. These principles are mirrored in Hawaiian culture and MARA Restaurant & Bar celebrates this connection by highlighting the historical cuisines of modern day Greece, Italy, and beyond while working in harmony with the bounty of ingredients from Hawaii’s plentiful and revered āina, from mauka to makai. Central to MARA’s culinary journey is a rotating fresh market seafood list where guests are invited to select their preferred fish and preparation inspired by the various cuisines that encompass the Mediterranean Basin. Our chef’s creativity is complemented by an elevated beverage program showcasing bespoke cocktails with in-house-made elements and a world-class wine list. Join us on this exploration and let your mind, body, and soul set sail across the Mediterranean.

    The restaurant did not have our reservation but I did received the Open Table confirmation email. For a Wednesday, the restaurant was almost full, fortunately the receptionist manage to have a table for us. The room on the East end of the restaurant was full and the room has three large table fully seated and due to the construction of that room, all the noise from each table seems to be trapped inside the room, thus making a bit difficult for my table of two to hold a conversation. The service was good, the food was good, just wish the restaurant could add something (panels or curtains) to absorb the noise.

    Our first experience which included the starters were much better in quality. My fish sandwich and guest’s salad was just ok. Nothing special.

    One of the best dining experiences we’ve had in Hawaii. Everything from the food, the service, the friendliness - made to feel very special on our wedding anniversary. Big shout out to Roberto, Kale and Charlotte for taking such great care of us! Can’t wait to come again.

    The food and drinks were excellent (a little overpriced, but not anything too abnormal for this area) and the Mara team were very flexible when I needed to change the reservation time and size multiple times. Unfortunately, the service was very slow during the meal - seemed like they might’ve just been down a server or two. I’d recommend going with a big group to share more things, but be ready for the bill! The saganaki, lamb Wellington, and beet burrata were highlights.

    We showed up 10 minutes before our reservation and was told to wait in the lobby because they were switching from breakfast to the brunch menu. It seemed odd given that there were many empty tables and this was Father’s Day. We were not given any type of buzzer so we ended up returning to the hostess stand a few minutes before our reservation time, and fortunately they seated us. Our server was excellent, however, and salvaged the occasion.

    While the staff seem to be working out some kinks still, it was a wonderful experience overall with comfortable seating, delicious food, and friendly customer service. We will definitely be back to try the one thing that wasn’t available for brunch this time - the lamb pizza!
