October 2017 update: We will be closed on Nov 1-2 as our team will be in Hawaii for the Food & Wine Festival. Effective October 20, our brunch services will be all walk-ins only. With the addition of outdoor seating, we believe this will help us reduce wait-times and allow more guests to enjoy our food and hospitality.
āina is a Hawaiian word meaning the land which feeds us.
Aloha! ‘āina is a modern Hawaiian food concept that serves food with a distinct Hawaiian influence with a breath of the classics. Everything we serve is from the land and rooted in what the land has given to us. We cook with the seasons and with love, using fine dining techniques and local ingredients from the Bay Area as well as specially imported ingredients from Hawai'i. The ‘āina concept strives to be a love letter to the islands, by merging the attraction of Hawaiian-inspired cuisine, the warmth and hospitality of the island spirit with a refined sensibility and great service in a casual and welcoming atmosphere.
RESERVATIONS / WALK-INS
For our dinners, seating is available for both reservations and walk-ins. We have outdoor seating which is generally saved for walk-ins. Reservations are available 30 days in advance and release at midnight on our website through Resy. We only accept same day reservations up until the start of service (5pm for dinner), after that please call us or come by in person.
Starting October 20, all our brunches will be walk-ins, on a first come first serve basis only, to reduce wait times. We suggest coming early at opening time to put your name down. Do note wait times are much shorter (if at all) on weekdays. There are no guarantees we can seat a larger group.
Dinner: Please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org for any large party bookings (our online booking system offers limited tables of up to 6 people), and any other reservation related questions. We offer a special Family-style Ohana menu for groups of 7 or more. (details upon request). At dinner, we can seat a group up to a maximum of ~14 people, anything above that will be considered a partial buyout.
We require a credit card upon booking and reserve the right to apply a cancellation penalty of $25 per guest, for any cancellations or reductions in party size with less than 24 hours notice. We can only hold your table for 10 minutes, so please call us if you are running late.
