Valentines Day in Honolulu-where to eat?

Looking for something a little special for 2 older couples. Any suggestions please?

Also-is The Willows still around?

    Hau Tree Lanai...nicest setting in Waikiki, right on the beach.

    Waioli Tea Room in Manoa...very old-Hawaii place for lunch in a lovely, almost jungle setting. Run by the Salvation Army, so no alcohol.

    Le Bistro. Wonderful food, nice ambiance, but no view...in a shopping center.

          Sad to hear! It has been years since we went there but it was always a treat! Thanks for letting me know!

            sadly the Mayor is right. The willows is still a wonderful setting, but only buffet, and the buffet isn't what it used to be. It is really very very sad.

            Yes, the Willows restaurant is still around.

            Would you have a price range or a cuisine preference we could work with?

              Nope-we eat just about anything and and since it is Valentines Day-we know it will be pricey. We love Seafood,steaks,Chinese,Italian
