Dine in Luxury High Over Waikiki at La Vie

By Mari Taketa | October 25, 2019 | Food & Drink


The gorgeous thing about dining at La Vie is the view. High atop the coconut palms, just off the eighth-floor lobby of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach, the restaurant boasts a backdrop of curving blue horizon and changing colors of sky and clouds as the sun sinks into the Pacific. And bonus: Your alfresco table at The Ritz’s new French eatery comes with a breezy panoramic view. Opt for a libation in the lounge to start the evening and pair it with an appetizer of velvety venison tartare or escargot dumplings. If you’re peckish, the prix fixe menus allow for any combination of three or five dishes—and you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything not worthy of five stars. Other high-praise recs include the poached egg and asparagus salad, the luscious salmon entree and a vibrant purple ube Mont Blanc dessert. 383 Kalaimoku St., Waikiki, 922.8111
