    I made reservations via open table for 8:30 and received a confirmation email for this time. Arrived at restaurant 5 minutes early and was told had to wait 15 minutes. Meanwhile they took 15 parties ahead of us. When I went up to hostess again, she could not fine me on the list than told me I had an 8:45 reaeevation. I showed he the confirmation email but she said it did not come into her system for that time. Either she was lying or their is a real problem. She then seated us in the over flow area and not outside where best seating was. Would never go back because of her attitude.

    This is a very mediocre restaurant with reasonably high prices located in a seemingly empty 1970's style resort.

    We have played golf for years at Hapuna, but never dined there! So just for Valentines Day we decided to try it. The view is outstanding as well as the service. They had a wide range on the menu and the food ws very good. will go back when on the Big Island.

  • Above Hapuna Beach Under the Stars

    Dined on 1/13/2014
    This is an absolutely fantastic setting for a restaurant. It has a very large deck overlooking a lit Hapuna Beach - one of the best in the Hawaiian islands. The menu is solid - not really inspired - with a Pacific Rim twist, including many Asian and Pacific Islander flavors. Execution is solid - over several days we had the chicken, fish trio, and pork. All were quite tasty and perfectly prepared. Appetizers were similarly well done - oysters broiled on the half, Oysters Rockefeller, wedge salad, etc. While probably appealing mostly to Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel guests due to its fairly remote location, this is a solid restaurant that should be considered by anyone visiting or living on the Kohala Coast.

    This is a great option if you are staying in the Waikoloa area and looking for something different. The service and ocean views were amazing. The food was very good but not exceptional. We will definitely add it to our list of places to go on the Kona coast.

    We made reservations here before we left for our vacation on the Big Island and we are sooo glad we did. With all the pop-in restaurants around, we might have missed this lovely place. After a long day of boogie boarding, our family of 4 enjoyed the sunset and an amazing meal that was the best we have had since landing in Hawaii. The local fish trio was amazing and the fried chicken wings were a favorite of the kids. Don't miss the churros and vanilla ice cream for dessert. The service was exceptional!

    The restaurant has an unbeatable view of the ocean. We have found few other restaurants with such a nice setting.The food was excellent. As a negative, there was only one meat item on the appetizer list. This made it hard to find a pairing for an entree with meat. The service was almost perfect - except for the fact that I had to remind the server to bring the wine I had ordered for dinner.

    Wanted a great beach dinner to enjoy the amazing Hawaii sunsets. Sort of on the beach- the sun sets behind trees so it diminishes the view. Server was not enthusiastic- not a deal breaker- she smiled toward the end. She checked on us every so often- nothing extraordinary. Starting with plain cold dinner rolls that tasted like they came right from a supermarket, then mahi mahi was grilled without excitement, sufficient kid options- theme of "underwhelming". Only thing big was the bill- expected for a great meal at a resort on the beach with a great view. Unfortunately, it was just an ok meal with a big tag. There are much better dinners to be had for similar money. Go there, unless this place is convenient or you don't have other options.

    Our first night we were jet lagged and tired from our flight and looking for something close to our Waikoloa nest. Found a review for Hapuna Coast Grill and booked a last minute reservation there in time to watch the sunset. The hotel is beautiful and the restaurant's situation overlooking Hapuna Beach spectacular as well. The macadamia nut crusted mahi-mahi was fabulous and the cauliflower bisque with coconut milk was sensuous and divine. Being tired, and a little tipsy from my deliciously cold martini, I unknowingly left my credit card at the table. The restaurant not only called the guard at the resort entrance to stop us, but also found our phone number and called us in the car! What a way to go beyond the expected!

    Terrible service and awful food. Waiter was new and untrained and had no help. Chicken was overcooked and dry. Steamed clams came with the wrong sauce after waiting 45 minutes. The setting however is spectacular, with it's beautiful ocean view and sunsets. But if you care about your food don't even give it a thought. Even so I will go back for drinks and maybe I will find something on the menu of redeeming value.

    I hope it was just an off night, but the service was abysmal. We had an Open Table reservation for 7:15 and weren't seated until 7:40. Then we were ignored at the table for another 10 minutes. The server was very friendly and even apologetic, and still failed to bring the wine we asked to be served with dinner until we had the main course on the table for several minutes. The food was good, but the experience was diminished by the slow service.
