Wolfgang’s Steakhouse by Wolfgang Zwiener

To celebrate Administrative Professionals’ Day, our office went to lunch at the new Wolfgang’s Steakhouse in the Royal Hawaiian Center. The restaurant was filled with other parties celebrating their assistants (who could easily be identified with their colorful lei) and the hard work they do to support their teams.

On a side note, I’d like to mention how much I love what they’ve done to the newly renovated Royal Hawaiian Center. The walk from our office to the restaurant was a pleasant stroll through grassy groves, bubbling ponds and a maze of escalators and sunny terraces. There’s plenty of plush seating nooks all around the center, a lovely coffee shop with a terrace overlooking Kalakaua Avenue (the perfect spot to people watch) and a brand new food court. I could hang out here all day with a cup of coffee. If you haven’t ventured into Waikiki lately, you should check it out.

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse is located on the third level of the center and is the fourth location for the chain following Park Avenue, Tribeca and South Beach. Note: this restaurant was created by Wolfgang Zwiener, no relation to Chef Wolfgang Puck.

The restaurant boasts a large, airy dining room with glass vaulted ceilings and French glass windows overlooking busy Kalakaua Avenue. There are also 2 private dining rooms, a full bar and an impressive glass enclosed wine showcase. The lunch menu is somewhat limited in the selection of steaks, but the prices are more affordable than dinner. For Administrative Professionals’ Day they had a special 3 course lunch set menu that included soup or salad, choice of entree, and choice of dessert for only $30.00



Although there were various entrees to choose from including pastas and seafood, we all decided that since we’re at a traditional steakhouse, we must have beef. Three of my coworkers had the special set menu with Mixed Green Salad, Petit Filet Mignon (served with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach) and Dessert.

My boss and I decided to try the Cajun Rib-Eye Steak off the regular menu ($28.00) and split a Wolfgang’s Salad ($15.00). The Wolfgang’s Salad was topped with shrimp, roasted red peppers, onions, tomatoes and sinfully delicious cubes of bacon. The Rib-Eye was huge, juicy, and served with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach.

Every steakhouse must have steak sauce – Wolfgang’s has their own brand, which is more vinegary and tomatoey than, say, A1 steak sauce.


Overall, it was a good traditional steakhouse experience. I hardly go to steakhouses because they’re fairly expensive and so my palate hasn’t been trained to discriminate steaks well enough. But my steak tasted good to me and that’s what matters.

PRICE RANGE: $12-$28 for lunch entrees, $3.95-$21.95 for dinner appetizers, $29.95-$47.95 for dinner entrees. Click here to view the menu.
MY BILL: My meal was about $45.00
