BALI STEAK & SEAFOOD - HILTON HAWAIIAN VILLAGE


BALI STEAK AND SEAFOOD
HILTON HAWAIIAN VILLAGE

Had a business dinner with a rep and local customer at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki.  The old Bali by the Sea is now called Bali Steak and Seafood.  This upscale restaurant has some beautiful views and a nice atmosphere.  We started our meal with some locally raised Abalone ($18).  This dish was simply delicious.  Perfectly cooked Abalone sliced thin and served with a light dressing.  Everyone at the table loved the Abalone and preparation.  I could have eaten three or four orders myself.  I tried the Wedge Salad ($11).  This too was delicious.  The dressing was perfect and the crumbled Bleu Cheese added a nice touch.  My friend enjoyed the Lobster Bisque ($10) and said it was good.  My steak however was a different story.  I tried the 8 ounce Filet ($42).  The steak tasted  like liver.  It was probably one of the worst steaks I have had in ages.  The small steak is served with roasted garlic and some type of sauce on the side.  I was adding the garlic, sauce and anything else on the table to try to get some flavor.  Nothing worked.  This is a $42 piece of crap.  My friends tried the Rib Eye Steak ($44).  They both said it was not that good.  We ordered a Rutherford Cabernet ($57).  When we asked for a second bottle they brought a BV Coastal Cabernet by mistake.  We took the wine because they had already opened the bottle before they realized it was the wrong wine.  Good thing about this is that the BV Coastal was only $33 a bottle.  Excellent buy for a fine dining steak house.  We were celebrating a Birthday so the waiter was gracious enough to bring a large slice of chocolate cake to the table.  The cake however was terrible.  First time I have seen a large piece of cake sit on the table and go to waste.  Everyone took one bite and no more.  The service here was excellent and I would love to return if the steaks were not so bad.  I don't know what it was about the steak.  Perhaps it was old or just a bad cut.
