Locals tipped us off to this restaurant, and we understood why they were raving about it. Specializing in locally sourced seasonal ingredients, the cuisine of this establishment is a French/Asian fusion. Surprisingly, it is housed in a nondescript strip mall, so the ambience doesn’t read 'fine dining' but the meal was gourmet in every sense. Cocktails were handcrafted by a personable bartender. Steven our waiter was knowledgeable about each item and how it was prepared, so could help accommodate my food allergy. We had appetizers, main course and dessert, and each item was amazing. The only downside to this place is that parking is very limited and there is no valet, so arrive early. Reservations highly recommended.

We had an amazing meal here - everything was fresh. Our waiter was super friendly and informed about the menu. There is a quaint seating area out back. There are a number of good options in Kapaa area but JO2 really stands out! Don't be fooled by it's storefront location!

We loved our dinner at this restaurant. The food was amazing - very fresh and flavorful. I had the tasting menu and loved it but the rest of our party of 4 loved the food as well. Great fish but also great lamb, veggies, and even dessert. Wonderful waiter and great service. Highly recommend.

Perhaps the best fine cuisine deal on Kauai. $35 for the 5-6pm dining with 3 superb courses. The appetizer, entree & dessert choices were full sized portions. They also offered a wine pairing for 2 courses for an additional $10. Excellent choices for all tastes & preferences or an opportunity to try something out of your norm. You will be not be disappointed. There were 8 of us & our only regret is that we hadn't eaten there before our last night!

OK. Maybe keep your socks on but be prepared to be amazed at the range and quality of what they serve here. They offer an Asian fusion using local ingredients. (And some not local.)
From a recent menu: Duck and lobster lumpia, Poached scallop ravioli, and Polenta crusted diver scallops with Vietnamese passion fruit.
We took advantage of the early dinner with wine pairing. The wine pairing was only $10 and perfectly complemented the courses.
Don't try to show up without a reservation.
This is another restaurant we visit every time we come to Kauai.
