WHAT'S NEW IN OCTOBER

We will be closed on November 1–2 as our team will be in Hawaii for the Hawai'i Food and 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. 

We were pleasantly stunned that chefs Jordan and Chris are in the final list of 4 nominees for Chef & Sous of the Year in San Francisco in this year's industry Saucy awards. BIG Mahalo to everyone who voted! See all the nominees in this SF Weekly article. There is still a popular vote for Best Restaurant, please vote for us here.

'āina will be featured on Check, Please! Bay Area—episode #1220 alongside two other restaurants. It will be airing on KQED Channel 9 (San Francisco) on Thursday, October 19 at 7:30pm, and Friday–Tuesday (Oct 20–Oct 24) as well once a day and can be viewed online as well. The show will also run on KQED Radio 88.5 FM: Sunday, October 22 at 8:30pm.

Our Philosophy:

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. 

 

MO'OLELO TASTING MENU

Mo’olelo translates to story. This is our story of Hawai’i, honoring its rich traditions while showcasing the farmers, specialty ingredients, flavors and experiences only found in Hawai’i.

Our Tasting Menu (available starting Friday, November 10) is a 6-course experience at our chef's counter, with direct interaction with our chefs. We offer limited seating of a total of 12 seats per night, with 6 seats each at 6pm and 8pm, Wednesday through to Sunday. Bookings are available in multiples of 2 only, up to 6 people. They are non-refundable but fully transferable. A $20++ beverage pairing may be added.

This is priced at $60 per person plus 8.5% in SF taxes and a 3% Resy booking fee, totalling $66.90 per seat, pre-paid at the time of booking.  Separately, our restaurant SF surcharge, gratuity, and any additional items ordered will be added to your final bill.

Our chefs will begin serving the mo'olelo menu promptly at 6pm and 8pm sharp, please plan your arrival time accordingly to ensure the highest quality experience for yourself and out of consideration to other guests.
