  • Hawai'i is Calling...

    Dined on 9/4/2014
    This is a beautiful outdoor restaurant on the edge of the hotel's pool with a view out to sea. You'll not have a better view. That's for sure! Food and service are the best...courteous, helpful waiters and waitresses...and they bring out lovely food. There are special bargains everyday, so it is a great place to check out. I can't see how you would not enjoy Hawai'i Calls.

    Michael our server went above and beyond to give us the most amazing experience. We had been searching for fresh coconut for 3days. With a mention to Michael, he brought it to our room the next day, opened it up and scraped out the meat of the coconut. Way above what we expected.

    Food was great, nice view of the pool and we got to see the sunset. Restaurant was busy so the service was really slow. Our server rarely came around to check on us, refill our water or my iced tea. But overall cost of buffet is worth the food quality & ambiance. Would dine again.

    This restaurant is at the Waikoloa Marriott on the Big Island. It has wonderful views and good food and service. There were several parties near us and live music but the overall ambiance and noise level was nice. Also has a very good breakfast/brunch. We would normally go out but were tired, and found the restaurant was quite a good choice!

    This is our favorite morning by sunrise and evening sunset hot spot. We love having dinner listening to the tradewinds while the sunsets and the sounds of the tropical birds and the sounds of the ocean first thing in the morning as we enjoy the wonderful island fruits from the wonderful buffet. The staff is awesome beyond words. We celebrated our 25th and 26th anniversary and decided this is our yearly gift to one another. We would recommend to anyone.

    We stayed at the marriott for a few days, after attending a conference at the hilton which is down the street. The food at the marriott is great. Fabulous ahi tuna stack appetizer, great burgers, fish sandwiches! Ate poolside a few times too! They have 50 percent off entrees two nights per week along with other specials. We had rib eye steaks one night which were cooked perfectly and very flavorful. Highly recommend.

    We had a small family-friend group including a three-year-old. The food was wonderful, many choices and several that were tempting to the child. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, and we had a unhurried, somewhat noisy -- in thinking back--, Easter brunch. We are local, we have been to Hawaii Calls before, and we will again.

    We are currently staying here at the Marriott Waikoloa. Have eaten breakfast at Hawaii Calls each morning, & dinner one evening so far. The staff is incredibly friendly, the food is delicious, & the view is spectacular! We look forward to enjoying the view of paradise each time we dine there. My husband & I are here alone, & it is very romantic. We have seen many others with kids, & it seems very accommodating for them & the staff is very good with them. We do not drink alcohol, but the bar seems lively. The music the night we dined was quite loud, but not bad, it also changes each night. The following night was Hawaiian music & was wonderful to listen to. We will definitely have dinner here another night this week.

    Open air dining.Service staff outstanding.Make sure breakfast is included in stay package buffet @ $29each allows variety &fillup. easterners except those from Maine, don't be afraid of the kea hole lobster. not quite as sweet as Maine but more than an acceptable substitute, lobster ran $24 and each side another $4.Friday/Saturday buffet is a bit pricey at nearly $50 each unless you are like me and just cant get enough snow cab legs. considering everything has to be shipped in and it is located at a resort, prices were not that bad. half off night at Hawaii Calls and at the adjacent bar menu makes eating in more bearable for younger families not accustom to these prices and not having to eat at kings or queens market.

    Went there on Saturday night for the Prime rib and crab legs buffet. Made my reservation online and requested our preferred seating and noted we were Kamaaina. All of this was was already noted and known when we arrived. Food was great as was the service. Only thing we wished we had were the tiny forks used for eating lobster. They would have helped with the crab legs. Probably needed a net surrounding us as the crab meat would sometimes fly when breaking those tasty legs. Seating was spaced apart very nicely too. Will return as we had a great time.

  • Mouth Watering Ribeye and Crab!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/24/2014
    We had delicious onion soup with gruyere cheese and lobster and shrimp rolls For appetizers. But what really surprised us and will have us coming back was the Mouth watering ribeye steak covered with a savory cognac sauce and mushrooms. The 12 oz steak was tender and juicy at every bite, laying over a bed of white rice And grilled green beans. The giant snow crab legs that accompanied this succulent steak were also delicious! No room for dessert as the meal is large enough to split if you wanted to make it to the dessert round! We highly recommend the ribeye and snow crab legs. On Mondays and Thursdays the restaurant offers 50% off any entry! Reasonable enough for anyone to give it a try!

    When we arrived Saturday night the hostess begrudgingly sat us. No one came to our table for over 10 minutes. I went back to the hostess and inquired. Then someone came to give us water. Eventually a waitress came. When we ordered a bottle of wine and meals off the menu, she seemed quite put out. There was a buffet that did not interest us. There was a large party at the bar near our table. We wanted to move away a bit but that looked like it would slow our service more. Our meals were lightly warm; not hot; indicating they had been sitting for quite a bit. This really ruined our last night in Hawaii and I would not recommend this place.

    We have been to this restaurant many times over this holiday.On every occasion we have left as extremely happy campers. They have a Lobster night on Sunday and do a really good buffet on Friday & Saturday nights. Lots of King Crab,cuts of beef,etc or have them make you a stirfry. The view of the sunsets from their restaurant are simply stunning. Worth a visit if your staying in Waikoloa.

    Staying at the Marriott for second time. Last visit Hawaii calls menu was pedestrian and we went to restaurant 3 times simply because it has such a fabulous setting. Expansive views of the ancient fish ponds and on to A-Bay from anywhere you sit in the restaurant. This year however, the food is greatly improved. Menu has imagination and the taste follows through. Went for the $22 Keahole lobster night. Perfectly poached whole lobster, really simpe and wonderful. Started with ugly tomatoe salad with goat cheese and ended with pineapple upside down cake with macadamia nut ice cream. Go there for happy hour and enjoyed a $7 guava martini, yummy. Waiters and waitresses are overworked, Marriott needs to hire more help.

    A very nice buffet spread. Not overwhelmed with a bunch of "filler", but just the right amount of the "good stuff" (prime rib and snow crab). Excellent service and the buffet was always stocked, even with a large crowd. Probably the most reasonably priced buffet on the coast. We love dining here and will be back soon!

    My Husband and I were staying at the Hotel and decided to dine on Thursday night when entrees were 50% off. We both had the blackened Ono which was delicious. The sun setting in the background cannot be beat. Having dined here a few nights we knew that the gratuity was not automatically added to the bill. (We were a party of 2 not 6 or more). This night, the gratuity was added. This would not normally be a problem except that it was based on the higher entree price. Which equated to a higher gratuity. I guess it was the restaurants way of recouping for the discounted price. To make matters worse, the server explained this to us and asked if it was ok. Like we had a choice. They should tell diners this BEFORE so as not to surprise them
