What restaurants have the best views in Oahu?

You'd be surprised.

As picturesque as Oahu may be, not many restaurants have stellar views of the ocean or lush mountains.

While there are a few — including the Top of Waikiki and Mariposa at Neiman Marcus — the best view right now happens to be at one of the island's newest steakhouses.

The Signature Prime Steak & Seafood recently opened at the top of the Ala Moana Hotel, in the 8,150-square-foot space vacated by Aaron's and Nicholas Nickolas. And while two restaurants had signature dishes and stellar wine lists, folks went for the view. (See above)

There’s really nothing like it. Two sides of the restaurant have ocean views. You can see the Friday night fireworks at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. And you won’t get a better seat for dinner on Fourth of July, either.

This 275-seat fine dining restaurant features a menu with aged prime cut beef, fresh seafood, specialty cocktails and signature desserts. One of the menu’s standouts is The Signature Seafood Tower (priced for two) with Maine lobster, jumbo shrimp cocktail, New England sea scallops and oysters on the half shell.

It's one of those special occasion restaurants, when you want to impress your date or celebrate a milestone in your life.

Double points if you book the "fireworks" table, too. 

The Signature Steak & Seafood, Ala Moana Hotel, 36th Floor, 410 Atkinson Dr. Hours: 4:30-10:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 4:30-10 p.m. Sunday. Phone: (808) 949-3636
