    It appears that with the new ownership of the Singaporean Government that things have taken a turn for the better at HumuHumu. Food, flavor profile, service and overall attitude has definitely Improved. We have lived on Maui for about 30 years so, have dined at HumuHumu since its opening. Went last year for Restaurant Week and swore we would never return. As the recipients of a Gift Certificate, we went back Friday night, 9/19. The food was delicious and hot with a eye appealing presentation. Special Occasion, Romantic Evening, Date Night, Beautiful Sunsets would all be satisfied dining at HumuHumu. Prices may be a bit stiff for some visiting Maui but, the memory will be long remembered after the cost is long forgotten.

    Our server, Brendan, was great! Even after our youngest dropped a glass of water, he brought him a stuffed animal (a humuhunukunuapuaa) and we continued on with our fantastic meal! Good food, a neat concept restaurant elevated over a giant fish pond complete with live lobsters, and a gorgeous view of the Wailea beach.

    Lobster overcooked, fish slightly dry, sorbet took over 30 minutes to show up from when we ordered. It seems things have gone downhill from 5 years ago. Scenery is fantastic, but the high priced food/service shoul be better for the money.

    I found this in the Fodor's Maui book. We enjoyed the peaceful beauty of the restaurant. The food and service was great. My adult daughter was able to hold a 4 lb lobster! So great. Best 8 oz. Filet ever! 2 things..go before dark to get full expierence. The drinks were ridiculously overpriced. Overall we are glad we went.

Wait staff was friendly and helpful and provided great suggestions on what to order. Highly recommend any of the fish dishes but am sure that they do everything well.

Food is decent, but this place is all about the location. As an added bonus to our dinner Huey Lewis was playing a private concert on the grass next door.

    Expect to spend at least $50 to $75 per person to dine here. The price is a bit on the high side for a family of three on a budget but it is worth it. We ordered and shared the rack of lamb with ratatouille, opah fish over black forbidden rice and the surf and turf. Good portion size. By the end of the meal there was nothing to lick off the plate. It was that delicious. Save your stomach for the Humu pie, a dessert built on Oreo cookies and layered with Kona and Macadamia nut ice cream. One of a kind.

    We were staying at the Grand Wailea and really enjoyed our dinner at Humuhumu. I had the filet and my wife enjoyed the mac nut crusted Mahi Mahi, both meals were a delight. The filet was cooked perfectly. The pleasant surprise of the evening, in addition to the lovely lagoon-style setting, was the selection and high quality of the kid menu. Our children enjoy salads and fresh options so it was great that Humuhumu provided options that were much more than a "happy meal".

    We read a few reviews about Humus and whilst the food and wine were good, the poor waitress was so busy in her "section" that we were ignored for long periods of time. In a strange way that meant we were not rushed and could enjoy the venue more. I thought the food was good but inmho a little overpriced compared to some other places in Wailea.

    This restaurant could be anywhere and it would be fantastic but the fact that it is literally on the sand of the Pacific Ocean (Grand Wailea in Maui) makes this foodie experience, scenic and romantic at the same time. This makes a fantastic dating experience. I took my family including 2 teen age boys and we had a great time. Highly recommended.

    To be honest, we went here because of the fantastically long name. We were really happily surprised though with the quality of service and food here. We were also offered a wonderful table right by the water and had the wonderful backdrop of the luau's music to accompany us for dinner. In all fairness though, I don't think there could be a bad table in the place.

    Very pricey as you would expect from this resort. Honestly it was a bit underwhelming. Food was great, but I've had better. Service was excellent. View was great, but it is Maui. Anywhere has a wonderful view. The name piqued our curiosity, but I doubt we'll go back again... Nice if you want to spend a lot of money impressing a date...

    My wife and I went there for our anniversary dinner. We had read good reviews about the restaurant, and about asking for table #70, as it was especially good ambiance. First of all, everyone should know that table #70 seats 8 people, so if they are in the least bit busy, you're not going to get it. The ambience was the best part. There is much better food and way better service elsewhere on the island.

    Waitress took our order and we did not see her again until she came to ask if we wanted desert. I had ordered a mixed drink and was never asked if I wanted another. I ordered surf and turf and the lobster tail was so over cooked it was inedible! The buss boy took my plate and asked me how it was and I told him, his response was "it happens." The news finally reached our server 20 minutes later and she then said she would comp my meal. Never an apology from anyone higher up. Will not ever be returning!
