'aina is a modern Hawaiian food concept that serves food with a distinct Hawaiian influence with a breath of the classics. Everything we serve is from the land and rooted in what the land has given to us. We cook with the seasons and with love, using fine dining techniques and local ingredients from the Bay Area as well as specially imported ingredients from Hawai'i. It is a small family-owned restaurant, labor of love started by Jordan Keao (Chef) and Jason Alonzo (GM) and Cheryl Liew (CFO). Jordan was born and raised in Hawaii (proud Hilo boy!), his culinary experience include time spent at: AirBnb, Google (chef de cuisine), La Folie and Roy's Hawaii. We opened in Dogpatch in late April 2016 and serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Make sure to get the ribs -- so good! And yes, the spam appetizer too. I was skeptical too, but turns out that homemade spam is actually quite good. GooglePlace - February 2018

Very good Hawaiian fusion food. Not traditional Hawaiian, but interesting flavors and well prepared and presented. Been here for both brunch and dinner; both were fun experiences. GooglePlace - February 2018

Being from Hawaii and growing up eating this type food, I may be biased, but I really thought the dining experience at 'aina was exceptional. They have taken all the tastes I loved as a kid and elevated them to a new level through creativity and carefully sourced ingredients. Based on their mo'olelo tasting menu, I'm hopeful they'll be the first Hawaiian restaurant to receive a Michelin star! GooglePlace - January 2018
