What do you serve at the pop-ups / private dinners?

Our menu is based on ingredients that are fresh, available, and in season, so it is constantly changing. Below is a sample menu.

Do you accommodate allergies or dietary restrictions?

Chef Brian limits food substitutions whenever possible in order to maintain the integrity of the dishes & their stories.

  • Pop-ups: Due to the pop-up nature of these events, we are unable to accommodate any dietary restrictions.

  • Private dinners: We are able to make accommodations for certain common dietary restrictions and allergies with at least 72 hours advance notice. Please note, however, that we are unable to guarantee that we work in a nut-, dairy-, or allergen-free environment given the complexity of our menus.

Are wine pairings available?

Wine nor other beverages will be offered (water will be available). However, wine pairings can be suggested for those interested. For our public pop-ups, a $10 per bottle corkage fee applies, payable the night of the event via cash or our Business Venmo @naauhilo.

Will my party be seated with other guests at pop-ups?

Guests will be seated with their own party only.

What happens if I arrive late?

Arriving more than 10 minutes late may result in missing part of your experience. Late guests will be served the course currently being prepared.

What happens if I cannot make my reservation?

Please note - all of our pop-up event tickets, as with most other events tickets that are sold (e.g. sporting events, concerts, etc.), are prepaid and non-refundable. ALL SALES FINAL.

We understand things may happen to prevent you from attending, but we also hope you understand that our tiny team spends an extensive amount of resources planning, sourcing, etc. for every event based on guest count.

You are welcome to transfer your tickets to another person for the same day, or contact us at guestrelations@naauhilo.com or 808-468-1164 to check to see if anyone is on the waiting list. Please read our Eventbrite pages for more information.
