      Positive aspects of the product (pros): food, service, atmosphere
      Cons: none

      We ate here the last week of September. There is only one way to describe it: fantastic! I know people rave about the dessert (which was good) but I am a meat lover and all of it was delicious! They bring it to your table on huge metal skewers and will give you as much as you want to take. I really liked the grilled shrimp, and the servers kept coming by without me even asking them. The steak, chicken & pork were all good as well. The appetizers and salad that are brought out are delicious too. While waiting for our table (maybe 10 minutes) a southern guy told me "they are fixin to feed ya" and he was right! If you leave here hungry it is YOUR fault.

      The staff was very friendly and did a great job serving us. Our drinks were always topped off without us asking. And, they call you cousin all of the time.

      My family will definitely go back during our next trip.

      Cons: NONE

      This was by far the best meal we had the whole week we were at WDW! We ate here on our 1st night 9/23. I wish that it had been our last meal because I kept trying to compare all the other meals with this one, & none even came close! Loved the bread pudding & the noodles!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): A lot of good food
      Cons: Too much food!

      Our party of 2 ate here on 9/21 for the last meal of our trip. We were using the dining plan.

      Our reservation was for 8:05 and we arrived 10 min before that time. There was a large line to check in for dinner (also some confusion with the luau starting at the same time). Once we checked in they said it would be 15-20 min before we would be called. That was pretty accurate - and the most we ever waited after we checked in for a meal.

      Once we were buzzed, our seating hostess took us by the kitchens and showed us the dessert we needed to save room for. She also grabbed us the bread and then showed us to our seat.

      Our server came and asked what we'd like to drink. He seemed rather rushed and busy all evening, but our drinks were always full so I can't complain.

      It also felt like we were being rushed through our dinner. Immediately after we ate our bread (which was AMAZING!) we were brought potstickers and chicken wings. Then they brought noodles and veggies. And then came the meat! We didn't really have enough time to enjoy each course.

      We also ate here as our last meal, which was probably a mistake. We had been eating all week and then trying to use up our snacks and meals at the end of our trip, so we were not hungry. I would suggest going to Ohana at the beginning of the trip!

      This is not a quiet place to eat. There were a lot of families with children and there was a woman who started singing and doing activities with the kids. It was fine with us, but good to note.

      The best part of the meal was the dessert. Even though we were stuffed from the rest of the food, we demolished that dessert. Banana foster's bread pudding with caramel sauce and ice cream. Mmmmm.

      The food was all very good, but not the best we had all trip. It is worth a visit if you've never been, though!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Most of the food
      Cons: Boring salad and tough meats

      The star of this show is really the side dishes, appetizers, and dessert. The meats were rather bland and tough, with exception of the chicken. Yummy wings and noodles, all ended with that dreamy dessert that still makes my mouth water. The salad dressing is super yummy but the salad itself was rather lacking. Who wants a salad of just lettuce? Wait staff helps each other out, which is nice when they are so busy.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Atmosphere, food
      Cons: Not enough room in my stomach

      This is a family favorite of ours, and we have never been disappointed. The meats are delicious, sometimes a little too well done for my taste. The sides are great- the noodles, veggies, potstickers and wings are heavenly. Same room for the bread pudding & try to plan your meal around Wishes!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Food and Service
      Cons: None

      This was my first visit to 'Ohana. I had heard good things but was concerned because of some negative reviews. I would have to make something up to say something negative for our experience.

      We visited on Labor Day and had the free Disney Dining Plan. Our reservation was for 6:40 and we arrived around 6:20. We were meeting someone who had not arrived. The hostess asked that I come back once he had arrived which was about 6:30. We were seated at 6:35. My group consisted of 3 adults - 2 on the dining plan and 1 that was not.

      We were seated along the aisle and had a good view of the castle. We enjoyed being able to see that as well as the activities in the restaurant.

      We all enjoyed the food and the opportunity to try the different meats. We received all of our food in a timely manner but never felt rushed. We were offered "seconds" for many items. I think we dined for about 2 hours.

      NOTE: We were able to use our Disney Visa Rewards to cover our "dining plan" tips at this restaurant.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): food quality and decor
      Cons: too much food

      My family ate here for the first time during our vacation (August 23rd-30th). The food was amazing! The noodles were very good. They had a sweet taste to them. The servers brought large skewers of all different kinds of meat to our table. The kids were so excited! The one negative I have to share was the waste of food. There was five of us and we ate way too much, but there was still wasted food leaving our table. Smaller portions for the food that is brought to our tables would be wonderful. We could have done without the distraction of the coconut race guy. He talked into his microphone while he was visiting with kids. It was extra noise. My kids (7, 9, and 13) weren't interested in participating. Littler kids and their parents enjoyed the parade. That was cute to see, but didn't need to hear him the whole time. Despite that extra, we will go back. I will just need more big eaters at our table. Kudos to the chefs! They were talented and VERY friendly!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): nice variety of food items
      Cons: disorganized service and cold food

      Was disappointed this last visit on 8/29. We were seated pretty quickly. We had only gotten our salad and bread, when the assistant waiter started bringing over meats and they were cold. We waited a long time for our appetizers and the potstickers were also cold. When they brought the meat around they forgot the sauces and we did too. By the time they did bring them to the table, we were done with our meal. The bread pudding was excellent and the best part of he meal. Despite this, I will be back to try it again, having gotten several great meals here in the past. This visit was a disorganized fiasco.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Cast members are friendly and accommodating
      Cons: Wait are is not large enough on a busy night

      1st time eating dinner at 'Ohana...we loved it. Due to busing issues, our party didn't arrive at the same time. They were gracious enough to sit us until the remainder of the party arrived. The food just keeps on coming! There is plenty to eat for everyone and is delicious. Entertainment for the children as well as educational on the culture of Hawaii. We would definitely eat here again!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Meat meat and more meat
      Cons: The bus ride back to resort

      Excellent staff service. Reminded me of Brazil with the meats on a stick served by waiters roaming from table to table. But we could have used a flag on the table to signal we are full.
      Wonderful salad with a very special dressing started the meal. Then chicken wings with toasted sesame seeds. The pot stickers were stiff. The meats came one right after another. I liked the beef, pork and shrimp. The chicken was dry.
      The bus ride back was not a Disney experience and it was painful, awful and cold. Take a cab.

      Cons: None

      We started our week off at 'Ohana on 7/14. We had a party of 12, with some really big eaters. None of us had ever eaten there before. We were not disappointed. The food was incredible, I could have eaten the dumplings and wings and been totally satisfied. From salad to dessert, 'Ohana is a definite for our Disney Dining experience for years to come!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): selection, the resort, entertainment

      We went on Father's day and one person in our party had never eaten there. This was our 2nd visit and it didn't disappoint us. I fell in love with the chicken with the peanut sauce. They had chicken, steak, pork, and shrimp. The Polynesian is my favorite resort anyway so spending anytime there is a plus for me. The entertainment was pretty good. There was a couple that was celebrating an Anniversary and they lived in the next town over from us. Small world. We would definitely go back!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): food and service
      Cons: hostess stand castmembers

      I continue to be amazed that 'Ohana gets negative reviews. It must be that it's excellent 98% of the time and absolutely horrid the other 2%...

      We (myself & DH) arrived a bit early for our 9:30 res, but went ahead and checked in to request a "Wishes view". The 2 cast members seemed annoyed on both counts. Maybe they'd had a long evening?!

      Our server was fantastic, if slightly over enthusiastic! Wink And the food was wonderful- all of it. We were celebrating our anniversary and she brought our "kissing cupcakes"- precious! And also snuck us a to-go box for our cupcakes AND the bread pudding since we were SO very full! Can't wait to return in December '12!!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): all you can eat
      Cons: poor service

      I honestly don't understand all the hype about this restaurant. We ate here on July 16th at 5:05 we were seated within 15 minutes. We were given our bread with no butter then we had salad, it was good, but then they went straight to the meats our server skipped our appetizers and our side dishes and when I asked if we could have our potstickers, noodles, broccoli and chicken wings she replied someone should bring them sooner or later Sad Well we finally got them at the end of our meal when our server was ready to give us our ticket and I had to ask for drink refills and dessert! If you have free dining and you want to eat here go ahead, but we were self pay and I don't ever want to return.
