THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Village Steak & Seafood Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED Relocated to the mezzanine level of the Hilton’s Rainbow Tower in the space formerly occupied by Golden Dragon Restaurant, this intimate eatery offers limited indoor seating but boasts an abundance of outdoor seating along a wide deck overlooking Waikiki Beach, the lagoon and those beautiful sunsets over the Waianae Mountains. Chef Andrew Yagami heads the show and arrives in Hawaii after a tour at The Beverly Hills Hotel. His convivial personality sets the tone for a delightful dining experience. The menu offers a buffet hybrid and à la carte menu. Both are done well. The buffet offers chowder or salad and desserts served alongside an unlimited spread that includes prime rib, stir-fried noodles and more. The à la carte menu explores a wider range of chef Yagami’s team’s talents and showcases the first-rate selection of Prime New York steak cuts and Black Angus filet mignon along with fresh island fish. Best time to dine is on Friday nights when the sunset is followed by the resort's weekly fireworks show. The best tables are outside with unobstructed sunset and lagoon views.
