    We celebrated our anniversary here (@ table 70) the food was perfect !! (lobster and filet) along with the overall ambiance made this a very special evening. We had been here several years ago and was extremely disappointed with the service and overall poor quality of the establishment. This time around we found the staff went out of there way to make this a very special evening for us...... Kudos to the staff (Diane ) and the chef for a very memorable anniversary celebration.

    Our first time to Maui, what a treat! Humuhumu was really a great experience. The food was great, we had the mac crusted mahi and local lobster. Sashimi was terrific, so fresh and beautifully prepared. My husband and I were seated out on their small deck, a private outdoor dining experience. Very romantic! Our server was very knowledgeable and so pleasant.

    Or first trip to Maui, 21st anniversary dinner, and first time away from our children. Without a doubt, was the best choice for this special evening. Great setting, outdoor, circled by water, fish, live lobsters & Tiki lights. Great service. We have already recommended to many people and will continue to do so.

    My friend and I dined at Humu. This was her first visit to the restaurant, the GW, and Maui. She was stunned by the setting, and we were both incredibly happy with the service, the meal, and the ambiance. Every time I visit the island, I attempt to try new places and enjoy new adventures; Humu however is the one consistent visit I make every time. The night was a spectacular wrap up to both a fantastic day and an amazing trip. The only feedback I can leave for improvement was that that the chicken & pine nut potstickers on our pupu platters tasted tough and overcooked.

    Beautiful restaurant with an amazing view of the sunset! You must try the Humu Pie, it is amazing! When we told our server we were on our honeymoon, he had the chef/kitchen staff write congratulations on our dessert. What a sweet gesture! While dining, you can watch the fish swim underneath the huts. It is on the pricey side, but it is definitely worth paying for the entire experience. I would eat here again.

    My husband and I dine here regularly, because we live on Maui and this is one of our favorite restaurants. The hamachi sashimi with ginger granite is my all-time favorite appetizer on Maui. We were seated at the special "over the water" table without a request. While the table would easily accommodate 8 people, it was just the two of us. We felt very special, indeed! Our server, Lindsey, was very pleasant and very attentive and never intrusive. The additional wait staff came and went, delivering dishes or clearing plates away. They were very pleasant, as well. I ordered the lamb this time, and it was perfectly cooked and seasoned. My husband ordered the surf & turf. The lobster was very large, and the filet was extremely tender.

    I have eaten at this restaurant many times. The view is great, but the food is average and the service is poor. Many of the servers have been there a long time and it really shows. The bartenders are friendly and attentive. Next time I will just enjoy the view from the bar.

    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.

Good food, a neat concept restaurant elevated over a giant fish pond complete with live lobsters, and a gorgeous view of the Wailea beach.

    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.
