Rave Yelp reviews and recommendations from friends lured us to try The Food Co. located in Kailua’s Enchanted Lake Shopping Center. My husband has been trying to take me here for a long time, but I always declined because I had assumed it was more of a catering company. While it does offer catering, there is quite the little restaurant inside.
As it turns out, The Food Co. initially opened in 1996 and quickly became known for its plate lunches. The fine dining that we tried tonight didn’t come around until a recent expansion, according to their website. They’ve grown to offer pretty much everything – local style breakfast, fresh grab-and-go lunches, to fine dining by night.
Overall, I give it 3 stars. Selling points were the stellar service and nice atmosphere, but I had higher expectations for the food. I would go back to try their breakfast, but probably not for dinner.
