Mom wants to be pampered. Mom deserves to be pampered. Mom WILL be pampered. Even if you do nothing else (except clean the house and wash her car, of course), you will show your love and appreciation with the most thoughtful of gestures—sitting down with her to a delicious meal she has not prepared.

With Mother’s Day less than two weeks away, restaurants around O‘ahu are beginning to book up and sell out. Here are your options—and keep checking back, since we’ll be adding updates and menus until Sunday, May 9.
