Fabulous in every wayFood fit for a foodie, impeccable service and a view to die for. Nothing else to ask for. Just go.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best service!I just want to let everyone know that Hoku's has the best service I have ever had! our waiters were Taryn and Art and they were very attentive without being intrusive. the restaurant had quite a few specials that night and Taryn described them all perfectly! our appetizers were excellent (Ahi Musubi and Tempura Kal-bi), for our main course my wife and I had the Roasted Chicken for two which was presented to us before being cut and plated in the kitchen. for dessert I had the Haupia Katsu (excellent) and my wife had the Sorbet sampler (excellent as well).
my only complaint would be that the chicken was juicy, although a little bland (thus the 4 stars on food). but the sauce they served along side was great!
over all a great experience!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMService is always excellent.Service is always excellent.

We enjoyed the place so much that we decided to stay longer, even after almost all the guests had left. Our servers kept assuring us that we did not have to rush and we could stay as long as we wanted. Service oriented staff, a winner!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. AmbianceGreat food and service. Ambiance could be better if they turned the lights down, and if there was less noise (add a few throw rugs down, more decorative plants, etc.).4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSUPERB DINNINGwonderful ,attentive service. amazing food and fantastic views!!!!!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA step above the other SundayA step above the other Sunday Brunch buffets. Great to have them make your omelet to order and bring it to you.

The wait staff were knowledgable and polite, and we never wanted for anything. Our wine and water glasses were always filled, and the food arrived at a perfect pace. My husband is a tough critic when it comes to food, with most dishes being merely "okay" when we go out to eat. But he genuinely enjoyed all of our courses, and was especially impressed by his entree, a beef tenderloin which was "perfect."3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA Very Happy Birthday...=)Went to Hoku's for my birthday...I had the rack of lamb (uniquely prepared) which melted in my mouth. My husband had the Prime rib...also a winner...we had the braised short rib with avocado tempura...delicious. Along with a tropical itch and a couple of lava flows, the evening was awesome...they also brought me a dessert with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate...heaven...=)3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI'd go again and again...Excellent food for their Valentines Prix Fixe. Though size wasn't huge, the amount of food collectively was very fullfilling. Was comped a Macallan 18 after 2 attempts at listed drams were not available. Wine pairings were ok, but pairing the champagne early instead of after the aperitif would probably have made the difference.
Waiter was engaging and forthcoming -- led to a very pleasant atmosphere and an almost insiders' view of the restaurants offerings.
View was stunning as always and atmosphere was restrained and very pleasant. Evening gets better as the sun goes down.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHoku's is a wonderful placeHoku's is a wonderful place to celebrate a special evening or occasion. Excellent food and drinks are presented by an attentive and gracious staff in an elegant atmosphere. Reserve a table along side the windows to enjoy an awesome sunset and incredible ocean view. One of my favorite places to dine.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Eursasian cuisine,Excellent Eursasian cuisine, attentive service and an outstaning ocean view.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMHoku's is the bestIt was recommended that we reserve the fish for two so I asked if there would be an onaga for that night. I was told that Hoku's did not have onaga for a long time so I ordered the opakapaka instead. When we arrived, to my surprise and joy, Alexarae informed me that there was an onaga reserved for us. The wok fried whole onaga was delicious and since there were three of us Alexarae mentioned that to the chef and we were given a large one. We loved it and also loved the 14 oz. ribeye and the sushi and sashimi platter. We were celebrating a birthday and the waiter brought a complimentary dessert for the birthday gal. The chocolate cake and sundae were excellent too. We had a wonderful night - Hoku's is the BEST!!!1/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHoku's is a wonderful diningHoku's is a wonderful dining experience with an awesome view of the ocean.
