    We celebrated our anniversary at the Bali Steak and Seafood. The food was great and the sunset view was spectacular. The ocean breezes and sound of waves really added to the experience. Our fish was perfectly cooked and well seasoned and the desserts were awesome! The wait staff was skilled and courteous and added to the excellent experience!

    Very nice spot for a night out with someone special. Ordered the 16oz Bone in Ribeye, which was fantastic. My wife had the fillet and we shared lobster potato gratin (very good). Service was great and our team of servers did a very nice job of pampering us. This restaurant compares to Ruth Chris, Morton's and Mastro's City Hall in Scottsdale. Desert and coffee capped off a great night. If you are a foodie and love to spend a nice evening out while on vacation this is the place. Resort casual is fine for this establishment as well (aloha attire).

    Bread stale. Fish over cooked. Creamed spinach was in a thin milk sauce with a foul smelling melted cheese on top. Chairs were terribly uncomfortable. Once seated had to wait for 5 min to get menu. Restaurant manager did make it right for the bill, but unless they get a new chef and new dining chairs and get the initial seating down with menu, I would avoid this restaurant.

    We have been going to Bali for 10 years for special occasions and for the wonderful food, ambiance and view. We were very disappointed in the "modern" Bali, as it went from Fine Dining to "modern". Although the menu options were sparce, the filet mignon was wonderful. The wait staff especially Chris was amazing. She has waited on us for years and remains highly professional as though she was still providing a fine dining experience.

    After the waitress made a big deal to make sure we were aware that the ahi would be served medium rare it was over cooked along with the filet mignon. Waitress pretty much ignored our table and it wasn't as if they were too busy. Our reservation was 8:00pm. After being served, she didn't ask how everything was or did we need anything else. Very disappointed with the server and the food was very expensive. Bad experience all the way around.

    The restaurant is open air and not air conditioned and affords an incredible ocean view. The dining area was comfortable with enough space between tables. Although the steak was asked to be medium rare it came medium. Dining between 5-6pm offers a 15% discount. The desserts are excellent but small--especially the candy bar. It is pricey.

    I have been coming to the Hilton Hawaiian Village for 11 years and finally got around to trying this restaurant. I was not expecting a great deal from a hotel restaurant and was pleasantly surprised all the way around! Food, view and service were excellent! After dinner the Friday night fireworks topped off the evening! I will make sure to come back each year as part of my visit.

    The service provided by Ricky and Hector was excellent. The food and wine list, however, leave a lot to be desired. For a high end steak and seafood restaurant on a resort, the self-induced standards should be much higher. The cuts of meat were well inferior to places like Ruth's Chris and Donovan's and even Morton's (of which I am not a huge fan). Both my wife's and my steaks were well overcooked. Medium rare should not be difficult, but this may be due to the inferior cut of meat. Overall, I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The Tropics bar and grill had better food. Ruths' Chris is not far away. Go there instead.

    Went on July 4th and had an ocean view...beautiful! The receptionist and server seemed distracted and just going through the motions of doing their job. Barely any interaction and felt we had to pull menu information from our sever. My husband ordered steak and polenta and other than needing seasoning, it was good. I order the market special fish and lobster au gratin potatoes. AWFUL! The fish was also unseasoned & horribly overdone. It was so dry that even dumping the pesto sauce on it didn't make it edible. The server did offer to take it off the ticket. The au gratin potatoes were essentially mashed potatoes with 3 small chunks of over cooked lobster covered by a cracker and Parmesan crust. Service was slow. Food was hit or miss.

    This used to be our favorite "special occasion" restaurant, but it is very different now as they seem more interested in turning over tables faster in place of good, but 'nothing special' kind of food. The website says 'no shorts' but we saw over half of the restaurant in shorts. The wedge salad was average, Honey chicken very tasty and moist which was nice, creamed spinach - average, and their special "Thai curried seafood' was overdone and dry, with many overpowering flavors. I was bored with that dish in a few bites. Dessert was a chocolate fondue - chocolate was good, but Korean or Japanese pear that they placed on the platter was tasteless and still had the sticker/label on one of the segments! The view was magnificent!

    We had been anxious to revisit Bali after the new chef was installed. I was intrigued by a photo I saw of the roasted garlic and rosemary. We were not disappointed. John and Ernie were friendly and efficient. The filet was tender and delicious. We also enjoyed the nice variety of breads. The salad was crisp and tasty and the Brussels sprouts were very good and not something always found on menus. We dine out quite often and Bali will be on our "favorites list". We truly had a lovely evening.

    The food was just okay, quite a let down for us given the long time anticipation of fine dining... (couldn't get a reservation in prior years). The potions were very small and quite bland - I had the ahi and it was nothing to rave about. My wife had lobster, which was a tiny portion and chewy (over cooked). She had a hard time getting the meat out of the shell and overall wouldn't recommend ordering it. Our deserts were disappointing too, the malasadas were baked (not fried) and the filling was on the side (bland). The crème brule was in a wide dish and about 1/2 in deep (mostly sugar topping). We won't be going back to this place and would recommend to dine off of the Hilton property as you get better food for much less.

    My husband and I dined here (Bali's) on our 34th wedding anniversary on June 13th, 2014. My husband ordered steak, which he thought tasted good, however, unfortunately I ordered the seafood special of the evening. I was very disappointed when I saw a bowl of mixed seafood floating in a soupy mixture. This was not what I expected at all. Why would you add seafood containing shells and serve it in a bowl? Thankfully, I had also ordered the lobster potatoes, or I wouldn't have had anything to eat. I have no complaints about my food server, she was wonderful, however I will probably never dine here again. Also, although there was a (very LOUD) fireworks display, we were not allowed to step out the back-side entrance to watch them.

    The service at Bali was as outstanding as it has always been. Stephen is great and as professional as ever. The remodelled Bali does not feel luxurious at all. It is mid-century modern with an island flare, but executed poorly. From fraying floor covering (only months after reopening) and candles that have you looking at the battery operated bulbs to very uncomfortable chairs and dining behind a bird net that stretches between you and the ocean view - the dining expereince at Bali has been degraded markedly from it's prior level of excellence. With a tab over $200 for two, the ambiance is no longer worth it. This has always been one of our favorties in Waikiki - no longer - not sure we will return.

    I dined here while staying at the hotel but invited a client and his wit to join us. The restaurant was nearly empty on a Friday night and we were the last ones left after only dining for under 2 hours. The food was very good but portions were small and expensive. Our bill for four people with appetizer, entree and shared desserts plus only 4 drinks (no wine) between us was $400 including tip. Just know that before heading over!

    We were seated on time. Our table had a breathtaking view of the water as did most of the tables. The service left nothing to be desired. The food was fabulous. A fresh salad with good dressing served elegantly. A Del Monico steak cooked exactly as ordered (medium rare). We ordered the lobster and potato au gratin. It was decadent but I would have preferred thinly sliced potatoes rather than using a sort of mashed potato -- but this was minor -- still a delicious dish. We wish we had more time here so that we could return to try some of the other menu items. We highly recommend this restaurant.

    The title sort of says it all. The Hilton puts a premium on eating at their facility here. I got a much better meal in downtown Waikiki (Dukes) at half the price. Also had a problem with bugs in the shrimp dish. Waiter said it was an open air resturant, so... Pleasant servers and nice place to sit but really not worth it.

    I had suggested this to a few friends instead of just going to a steak house and this place hit the mark. The steaks and seafood were perfect but what set this place above everything else was the quality, attention to detail, and flavors that went into everything else. Many places can get the main course right, and Bali does it well, but they go above and beyond in every other category of dining experience. Do yourself a favor and start with the tomato soup. You will never look at tomato soup the same way again.

    Came to Bali's for a birthday dinner (mine!) - what an absolutely fabulous night we had! Party of two teens, two adults. Between the four of us, there was not a single item that wasn't amazing. Our son said it was the best meal he'd had in his entire life. Enjoyed the most: filet mignon, scallops, honey chicken, lobster potato gratin, crab oscar, corn and bacon polenta. For dessert: Kona creme brulee - awesome! Service: Very attentive yet didn't hover. Perfect imho! Ambience (7pm reservation): Were seated farther back in the restaurant; it felt intimate even as the restaurant filled in the latter hours. The noise level: moderate, but we never had trouble having a conversation. A perfect birthday dinner! Many thanks!
