    This dinner spot at the Grand Wailea Resort on Maui south side is the perfect spot if younwant trendy ocean views romantic ocean breeze and an expensive meal. 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.

    Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with our family. The staff was so accommodating. The food was amazing. Recommend the Mahi Mahi or steak or the excellent pork short ribs. Drinks were very islands style with some in coconuts. Save room for dessert. The coconut cream dessert was amazing and came with a nice Congratulations written in chocolate

    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!

    The food was very good. Our server was clearly overworked, but after we ordered coffee and dessert, she acknowledged that it had been chaotic and comped dessert. It was a nice net to end on. Very loud and tables are close to each other. The lighting was difficult, but once the sun set, the lighting was easier.

Salad was excellent - fresh greens and a superb vinaigrette dressing. Entrees were the Salmon and Mahi-Mahi dishes. Both were excellent, good presentation, cooked per instructions - very happy with selection. Two French Vanilla drip coffees and Humu pie topped off the evening. Pie was outstanding!!

    We had amazing food here on July 4th, the surf n turf, however, service was lacking. The hostess was not friendly at all, which makes no sense. A restaurant should have their nicest, friendliest people working the hostess stand. Our waitress also was not that great. We waited forever for our check. The place is amazing, however, there were a lot of families so it was not very romantic at all. The table next to us had a child that smashed a plate on the ground. I was glad to see no one got any cut feet/ankles. Not sure I would go back.

It also has a man-made waterfall next to one of the dining areas. Our waitress was extremely welcoming and helpful, and even gave my son a souvenir plush fish from the resort.
