3660 on the Rise – Waialae, HI

I had a wonderful birthday dinner last month at 3660 on the Rise and can you believe it, it was my first ever visit! This restaurant has been around for quite a while, not sure what I was expecting. Somehow I envisioned an interior as a big ballroom type venue, not sure why. Not to say they are not fancy! It’s a nice upscale restaurant but nothing too stuffy. I really enjoyed it! The wait staff were attentive and the food was delish. Let’s get on with the review!

Left: Island Iced Tea: bacardi limon, triple sec, fresh limeade, tropical iced tea (thumbs down)
Right: 3660 Mojito: bacardi limon, light rum, fresh limeade, fresh mint leaves (very good drink!)
Ahi Katsu | $18.50
sashimi-grade ahi wrapped in nori and deep fried medium rare, wasabi – ginger sauce

This dish looked familiar and it’s no wonder why, Sansei serves a similar dish! Well now that I’ve tried both, I can safely say, this one is the WINNAZ. I think I could eat this dish on its own as an entree.

3 Course Dinner Special | $67
Clam & Corn Chowder
3 Course Dinner Special | $67
Duet of Braised Short Ribs of Beef Truffle Jus
&
Oven Roasted Lobster Tail with Roasted Red Pepper Butter Sauce

I can’t comment too much on the 3 course meal, I can say the person who ate it enjoyed it! $67 for a three course meal is pretty good, especially with lobster??

Roast Rack of Macadamia Nut Crusted Colorado Lamb | $49.50
Cabernet Mint Sauce

Now this dish, this dish I can comment on. It was mine oh mine and it was absolutely delicious. Cooked perfectly medium rare and the seasoning was on point! What a great way to celebrate.

Dessert!!
3 Course Dinner Special | $67
Mixed Berry Trifle with Pound Cake

Certainly looks appetizing right? It was pretty good, I enjoyed the fresh berries. I had one really good piece of pound cake and then the rest was blech. Like powdery/flour-y somehow, a bit weird and gritty. I would pass on this dessert.

Granny Smith Apple Tartlette | $11.00
caramelized apples in puff pastry topped with homemade vanilla caramel sauce swirl ice cream

I wish I could do the heart face emoji for this dessert. It was AMAZING. I love myself some apple desserts and this one was perfection. The puff pastry was so buttery and flaky, lovely baked apple slices inside…CARAMEL AND CARAMEL ICE CREAM? Well I know what dessert I will order next time, no regrets!
