PADOVANI'S GRILL

PADOVANI'S GRILL
HONOLULU, HAWAII 

Had lunch at Padovani's in the La'Uraku building on Kapiolani Boulevard.  The company (Brigitte and Shelby) was much better than the food.  Our lunch started with a very good waiter who had to start the lunch off by telling us that they were out of half the items on the menu.  No Ahi, no shrimp, no this and no that.  Wow...I  thought, these guys need to go out and buy some food.  There ended up only being a few items to order.  Basically soup, salad, risotto and a Duck dish.  All three of us had the Onion Soup Gratinee ($10).  This dish really smelled foul when they brought it to the table.  The smell was from the cheese and reminded me of the back alleys of Chinatown.  The overwhelming smell kind of ruined the dish.  The soup however was not bad.  I had a Caesar Salad ($10) that was unlike any other I have ever had.  The salad had almost no parmesan cheese and a olive oil dressing that was not too good.  The girls both had an appetizer portion of the Risotto ($14).  Looked really bland to me but they seemed to like it. I liked the service since we were the only people in the restaurant besides one other couple.  Don't know if I would return to this place.  Definitely not for lunch.  UPDATE:  THIS RESTAURANT HAS CLOSED.
