Enter into a world of refined elegance at 53 by the Sea, a five-star dining establishment located on Ahui Street, where the former John Dominis once stood.

53 by the Sea strives to provide a ‘Once in a Lifetime’ experience for their guests. Their standards are set above all others and they reach for the highest level of service to create memorable experiences.

The 53 by the Sea experience encompasses all five senses.

With sight, the grand entrance greets guests with a regal experience. From the architecture to the natural beauty that surrounds, an insurmountable amount of thought has gone into making the venue visually appealing. Sweeping views of Waikiki, Diamond Head and Kakaako are sights that cannot be recreated elsewhere.

With sound, live music provides an elegant backdrop to your dining experience. The energy resonates throughout the dining room, from the quiet and secluded banquet seating to the upbeat buzz of the Lounge.

With smell, the aromas of their cuisine permeate the dining room. The freshest ingredients are combined together, all with great care and balance, to provide the centerpiece of the dining experience. The bouquet of a mature Bordeaux served along with a freshly grilled prime cut of beef is a match like none other.

With taste, the food shines center stage. Whether it is just an aperitif before dinner or a glass of Sauternes with dessert, the marriage of food and beverage is what completes the dining experience.

With touch, each item, from the silverware to furnishings, is selected with the guest in mind. The warm tones encompass the guest and allow them to relax and enjoy.

For proper attire, 53 by the Sea recommends men in collared shirts and/or jackets with pants and shoes and women in fine dining attire.
