Sweet Stop
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I'm in love with pastries! Someone brought some pastries to my rehearsal and I got to sample Sweet Stop's haupia cream puff and New York cheesecake. Both were small bite-sized portions, perfect for sampling. The cheesecake was smooth and creamy. The haupia cream puff? Oh my god, the haupia cream (more of a custard consistency vs. a true cream) was silky smooth, and coconuty (is that even a word?). There were other pastries/desserts that I wanted to try, but I had to refrain from turning into a little greedy piggy since there were others present.

Willows restaurant
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
I was disappointed. We heard such good things about this restaurant, but it just seemed kind of blah next to the other places we went on our trip. Mostly because the food was just not special and nothing was particularly flavorful. For the money (about $50 a head) it just wasn't worth it.

Kiyomi's Fitting Room
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
While we were out in Hawaii we decided to try on dresses since this was right at Ward Center. Even though I didn't get my gown here I wanted to review them because the owner gave GREAT customer service. Really friendly and I could tell she was genuinely interested in helping me. I didn't get the feeling that she was trying to 'sell' me anything. She also let us take photos in the dresses, which was really cool! Is that a Hawaii thing? We had a lot of fun in this shop and it was a great experience.

Phil's Tux Shop
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Phil's was a great find from our scouting trip! We rented 5 tuxes, so we got one free. The prices were great and we still feel like a got a great value. This was also easier than renting tuxes at home and then trying to pack them for the trip, etc. Here's how it worked: my hubby got his measurements taken while we were in the store. The rest of the guys had to go to get their measurements at local shops and simply faxed them over. When everyone got to Hawaii they came in for a final fitting and took the tuxes with them. There were only minor changes -- different shirt for one groomsman, and bigger shoes for the other. Phil's made this really easy. I highly recommend them!

This place is strange. When i walked in a noticed a DOG wandering through the store. A nappy, dirty dog. What kind of way is this to sell wedding gowns? The sales clerk was okay, but I really wasn't impressed with the service. The only reason they got 2 stars is because they had some snacks out for family members. Unless you need a snack, skip this place. I bet the dresses have flees!

( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I loved Yvonne's work based on her website. When I saw the flowers, they were even better than I had imaged! The colors were so vibrant and the flowers were so healthy. WOW! I highly recommend Yvonne!
