Ate here alone as I am out here for work. Walked in and was shown to a table by my Waiter - which on the receipt the server was named Sterling but then the Cashier was named Oli so I’m not sure. Anyway, the waiter...was really not nice and had a bad attitude and I couldn’t wait to get out of there. He sat me down and brought over a water but when he came to take my order, he couldn’t wait to walk off when I was trying to amend the dish slightly and it was like I was some disease he couldn’t come close to or stick around long enough around to hear what I actually wanted and I nearly ended up with shrimp in my dish which is what I didn’t want. He also didn’t even ask me if I wanted an alternative drink other than water - I waited so long that in the end I asked a waitress who happened to walk past my table. Dumped my food on the table and didn’t say a word and also dumped the bill on the table when I had finished and still didn’t say a word. Super rude guy who either needs to take a day off or not work in the food/people facing industry. However, Food was great which is a shame the service let me down as I’m here for a while and won’t be returning based on that experience.More

The PROA from a few years ago no longer exists. The current PROA is destroying its own heritage. For a long time, when I came to Guam for summer vacation, my first dinner was always PROA. The food was delicious and the staff were professional....Before visiting Guam, I always check TripAdvisor and Google reviews. I was proud of myself that there were no BAD or Worst reviews about PROA. Continuing from last year, PROA received a large number of bad ratings and reviews this year. I didn't believe the reviews unless I went there myself, but today I visited in person and confirmed that the reviews were not false. Most of the food we ordered came out cold and even some of the food we ordered did not come out. Some of the staff had an overbearing attitude towards strangers and that alone made me decide to leave this review. This is in no way written to disparage PROA. I am writing this because I hope that PROA will return to its original form. And recently, a controversial tipping incident has been happening here in the mainland United States as well. They ask for a tip even though they already charge 15% for the service. They say it's optional, but customers know that it can never be an option. If you have paid the service charge in advance, you should not mention any tip at all. It's nothing more than stealing customers' money by double charging. Why are we so quick to learn these stupid habits and quickly forget our great past?More

My wife and I visited about five years ago and it was the best restaurant we tried in Guam.. Unfortunately this time it was the worst. When we arrived I asked about corkage fees because we had a bottle we'd like to drink with our...dinner if the price was reasonable. We were told $15 which sounded fairly reasonable so we agreed and started drinking it. Unfortunately a little later we were told the price would be $25 and because we'd already opened it we couldn't refuse. Our entrees came out at such staggered times that the first person was done before the final entree arrived. My steak was about 30% fat and gristle, which for a ribeye would be bordering on unacceptable but it was supposed to be a NY strip! I sent it back and was dreading how long the re-fire would take given the first one had taken more than 40 minutes. Surprisingly, it came back in about three minutes. However I soon realised that they'd just cut the fat off my original steak and sent it back to me! There were other minor issues with service (such as our waiter being constantly confused with the orders, and handing me every plate to pass out to the other guests in our party as if I was working there too), but I don't want to pass the blame onto the serving staff because there were only two of them for the whole restaurant and they seemed to be in a constant state of exasperation. In summary, ignore any non-recent reviews of this restaurant because the quality has fallen off a cliff and is an embarrassment to its former reputation. The food quality was poor and the service was even worse. Avoid.More

Even with their limited “Covid” menu, there were lots of yummy options. Definitely treat yourself to the beggars purse appetizer, but try not to lick the plate clean of the wasabi sauce. We had the izumidai and rock salt ribs and both were excellent. Sorry...the wasabi cheesecake wasn’t on the menu, but we were pretty stuffed so maybe it was a good thing.More

Its a definite hard pass on this place until the food and service improve--signifcantly! Anyway, off to bad start with our drinks that tasted like a mix of salt, soap and dishwater. Not sure what happned but it was either a sick joke or just...very negligent staff, but clearly a huge fail. Thankfully, no one had to be rushed to the emergency room for chem poisoning. No worries, drinks refreshed and half-hearted apology given Now, awaiting appetizers...not too bad. But not understanding why other diners were given their food BEFORE ours when we definitely ordered BEFORE them and they arrived/seated AFTER us First main course arrived but we are forced to share as the other orders weren't delivered at the same time. But yet all the other restaurant tables got their main plates at the same time, except for us Of the main dishes served, the first arrived cold, but kudos for the well plated fare. Since our food was not delivered at the same time, we were forced to share our food amongst us and we scarfed it nonetheless Second main arrived, more cold food! Taste wasn't too bad and the plating was very good for this $50+ entree, but again--served cold and late! Actually got an apology for the delay Last main finally! But this time, arrived piping hot but more dishwater flavor served over a bed of overcooked pasta which was just the final smack to face to GTFO Won't ever return.More

The food is terrible- over salted flashed seared beef cubes with burnt and bitter vegetables, then fiesta fried chicken sandwich (over fried and dry) with absolutely no taste. It came with a handful of lettuce with basically water (I guess it was supposed to be...oil and vinegar) which totally saturated the only good thing on the plate which were the crispy shoestring potatoes. Also the chicken penne pasta was terrible, plus we asked for no mushrooms which we, of course, got. I had to order two beers, just to wash the little food that I are, down.More

This place is hyped up quite a bit, I just don't get it. Service was not quite average, and it was not busy. The food was also pretty average. The only think that made this experience good was the company we had with us.

Proa has been my go-to restaurant. It still has good service, but the food is terrible. The head chef needs to get their act together and do massive training. I have been there recently 3 times, thinking the poor food was due to reopening after...covid. Each time the food was not good, especially for the price. Not going back. Last time we were there for a business meeting, my chicken must have been thrown into the fryer frozen. Crispy on the outside, raw inside. The mashed potatoes were lumpy --- and refrigerator cold. My associate's steak was tough. We ordered coffee and dessert to finish off a truly mediocre dinner. It took 45 minutes to get a cup of coffee. No kidding. I looked at my watch. The waiter kept saying they were brewing the coffee. ... It wasn't all bad. The best part of the evening was the beautiful outdoor patio and friendly staff, but the food was a disaster. Get it together, Proa. You were a Guam icon.More

It is a very unique cake about 30 degree tilt. You do not have to do special order. It is very sad even though we had COVID-19 discount promotion.

We love to eat at local places and this was recommended by the airplane mechanic who traveled with us on United’s Island Hopper from Hawai’i to Guam. Proa is an amazing local foodie hangout. I particularly loved the appetizers we chose, calamari breaded and flash...fried with Mango-Napa-Cilantro slaw, red pepper flakes, and soy citrus syrup and escargot poached in pesto and compound butter served on a toasted bread plank. Helpful Hint: Go to Proa for lunch. It’s easier to get a table and you have the rest of the day to “work-off” the amazing meal. By the way, they also have fabulous deserts.More
