    Our server was understanding and accommodating: he'd apologised profusely for the prolonged delay (40 minutes) of our ordered meals on the restaurant's buffet night and brought us a complimentary side of baked vegetables to "keep us going" until our individual dinners arrived; which was most appreciated as my father is a diabetic and he was in desperate need of food at a "particular time" for the evening meal. Thank You for the special attention given to our party.

    What a great place to dine at the Marriott Waikoloa Hotel. The setting overlooking the pools and ocean is ideal. My husband had a grilled cheese sandwich off the bar menu. It was delicious. I ordered the MahiMahi fish and chips from the bar menu. It was also just wonderful. We enjoyed our delicious food while overlooking our last sunset on the beach. Aloha!

    Loved the view at sunset. We sat outside in such a beautiful setting. This was the first time we ordered off the dinner menu. We usually just ordered from the less expensive bar menu. Well, the prime rib my husband ordered was jus OK. I ordered the macademia nut crusted mahi mahi. It was just OK, too. I had ordered the mahi mahi fish and chips and thought it was wonderful. So, I was a little disappointed that my entree was not that special. We had wonderful, caring service from our servers!

    We were set off to the side behind a bush and did not feel included in the restaurant scene. My husband loved his seafood linguini. I had the duck and it was overcooked and dry. It really did not have a lot of flavor.

    The food was really not that good for the prices they charged. Food was overcooked the first night but we decided to give it another try and thought the prime rib was good. The breakfast buffet was poorly executed- fruit wasn't very fresh and everything seemed over cooked. At $29, it should have been better quality.

    Service was terrible! I waited 15 before a waitress came to take a drink order. After flagging down a busboy he tracked her down. I assumed that service would get better but I was wrong. The setting is beautiful, the food okay but the service ruined what would have been a great evening.

    We enjoy having a great restaurant not too far from home. Sometimes the beef is overlooked which makes it a bit dry and tough. The chicken and fish dishes are just okay. Service is great and friendly. Hope the price stays the same for awhile.

    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.

    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!

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.

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 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.
