I went to Mahalo with my wife this past weekend while celebrating my birthday. We had the spicy tuna Poke and the papaya salad. Both were outstanding. The fries were not that gray, but the aioli that came with it, very good. Decor of the restaurant is inviting in a casual way. Apart from a hostess trying to push us to the bar while most of the tables sat empty, the experience was very good.

The atmosphere and decor of this place is so cool! We went for brunch on a Saturday. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The drinks are expensive, though. Overall, it was great!

Atmosphere is great: bright room, colorful décor, trendy neighborhood. Food is interesting but mainly salad oriented, so if you are really hungry it won't be satisfying. Service is lacking. Our main courses came out fast, but before our appetizer. The servers didn't seem to think this was an issue.

You know their staple of Poke is great when someone like me who doesn't eat any raw seafood enjoyed it so much. The environment is very summery. It is a fun restaurant to be at.

This place is Hawaiian themed in wicker park. Came her for a drink, had different tropical themed drinks. We got pina colada shots, delicious! Would go back to try the food.
