Diner Reviews
  • "The Plumeria room at the Kahala Hotel is a treasure! Excellent service, wonderful food and a beachside setting that is truly one of the most beautiful spots on earth. You can't go wrong. Whether brunch, lunch or dinner you can't go wrong."

  • "The Kahala Hotel is at once romantic and kid friendly, a hotel restaurant with good food, a seafood buffet that has quality as well as quantity and variety. The unexpected seafood buffet one Sunday night had clams, scallops, mussels AND lobster in the pasta dish! The sushi, sashimi, and poke were fresh and plentiful. There was even a refreshing gazpacho. And desserts were excellent as well. I could go on, but I don't want too many people to come and spoil the fun!"

  • "We tried to get in for their brunch but there was no availability so we went there for lunch instead. The hostess sat us immediately and we had an amazing table with unibstructed views of the ocean. We waited almost 5 minutes for the waiter to come over and take our drink order and it wasn't even very busy. It looked like there was only a couple of wait staff working. We ordered fish tacos, the Kahala burger and the chicken salad. Everyone in our party was very pleased with their selections. The portion sizes were perfect although the burger was much larger. The fish tacos were very tasty! I tried the mango mojito and it was very good! Had the service been better I would have given it 5 stars."

  • "Thank you for a leisurely luncheon and afternoon of chatting among 5 special friends. We did not feel rushed! Our selections were all excellent! Loved the Chop Salad! Service was exceptional!"

  • "Waited extremely long for our order and an order was forgotten and had to wait longer. A persistent fly annoyed us throughout the entire lunch. A salad was not brought because the person who ordered the salad had soup and they were waiting till that person finished the soup. Everyone was eating except the person whose order was forgotten."

  • "I really enjoyed the view and the table however when the parents who were sitting behind us allowed their children to star running around ruined the enjoyment. It actually was annoying. I have two boys and would never allow this behavior. Maybe you should have a section for families."

  • "As always I had a lovely lunch. The view is spectacular and the food is good. Eric, once again to care of me... his service as well as the attention I received by the seating host was stellar. Thanks again for an enjoyable and relaxing lunch!"

  • "Very good quality. Fresh ingredients and baked goods. Omelet station with perfectly cooked eggs made to order. Potato of the day, every time is delicious. Fruits, granolas, cereals, healthy options. Cold cuts, veggies, etc... They have a lovely spread. The coffee is very good too and you have your choice of juice. My husband and I stayed at the Kahala Hotel last year and we ate breakfast there everyday. This year, we stayed on the other side of the island, but we stopped in just to have breakfast at the Plumeria Beach House. We have also eaten lunch and had frozen drinks here, also very very good."

  • "I was really disappointed to be greeted by rude counter lady. When I made the reservation I specifically requested an outside seating. They informed me that this will be accepted as a REQUEST which I fully understood. When I told them that we would like to be seated outside, she very impatiently loudly said NO. We were 9 but with one1year old in a buggy, one 3 year old and two five years old with 4 adults. As I looked out side, their was a table connected for 6 people accommodating 8 people and they left 10 mins after we arrived. Just because we are Asian does not mean that you can yell and say so FIRMLY NO. The 1 year old baby did not require a seat."

  • "It was a relaxing dinner buffet with my family and friends. We enjoyed the outdoor dining with the ocean view. The seafood buffet was high quality, especially the oysters and sashimi. Great varieties of deserts in mini bite sizes. I wish that there were more selections on fresh fruits."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Normally, this is one of my very favorite restaurants--the food, the wait service, the location...all amazing. I had wanted to try the curry buffet for a really long time, and finally had the opportunity to do so on the day of the curry buffet. The salads and desserts were fantastic--a large assortment, all good. But I was really disappointed when it came to the main entrees. For the price paid, I was looking for a wide variety of curries. Instead, there were only three. The three that were there were delicious, but as noted, I was hoping for more selection/variety, not just three curries and three rices. Something was definitely missing."

  • "I have lived on the islands for 20 years, and this restaurant remains one of my favorites. The service is excellent, the food is superbly prepared, and for island restaurants of this caliber, it's cheap. The ambiance cannot be beat. Highly recommended!"

  • "15 of our Hilo High School classmates had nothing but priase about Plumeria Beach House. We enjoyed the scenic view, food, relaxed atmosphere and service. So many commented on how they enjoyed their meal. I loved the Pipikaula Reuben with cheese and avocado. Many have not been to the Plumeria Beach House or if they had, it was quite awhile ago, so this was a special occasion for many and some made a special effort to attend this luncheon."

  • "My wife and I went on a Saturday night, when the focus of the restaurant is entirely on a wonderful seafood buffet. There is only a limited ala carte menu when they do the buffet, so I can't comment on that. We had a table that just outside with an ocean view, but under an awning - an asset when it began to rain. The buffet was super. I especially enjoyed the freshly made seafood pasta."

  • "This was to be an early Father's Day dinner as my husband had to work on Sunday. I read a few Yelp reviews and some had one and two stars, so I was slightly skeptical. Driving to the restaurant a torrential downpour occurred and as I wanted this to be a special, outdoor, beautiful view evening-I grew more skeptical. We got to Plumeria Beach House and it was bustling! We had to wait a few moments as they had to move diners in from the lawn due to the rain. No problem. We were seated at a beautiful ocean view table.The buffet was a Hawaii themed buffet and every single dish was delicious. I wished they had Kiawe Sirloin instead of Prime Rib (not my fave) but the Service made up for that.The restaurant was busy, yet our dining felt intimate."

  • "Been to the Plumeria Room for lunch, as well as experienced the p.m. tea service, on a number of occasions, but this was the first time experiencing the weekend fish buffet. Absolutely outstanding! Food very fresh, creative, abundant, lots of selections ... epicurean delight. Service absolutely impeccable even tho it was buffet style ... Christopher stopped by and briefly chatted at our table and made us feel very welcome ... everyone very friendly and service-oriented. Will definitely be back, and tell our friends."

  • "A splendid retreat for brunch and lunch. A good buffet with a nice selection. Staff is friendly and always courteous from hostess to wait staff. Their standard lunch menu can be modified a bit to reflect a little more imagination to its menu selection; however, food overall is good. Beverages are fabulous."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Port of call theme was Hawaii. Therefore, I would have expected more Hawaiian style entrees. Baked fish entree was very good. Others were not as tasty. Poi was very watered down for a local dish. Sashimi, poke, sushi and salads always very good. Service was less than expected --- should not have to ask to for water replenishment nor to ask for coffee at dessert. It seems the wait staff might not have been attentive this evening. Also, shouldn't the staff know that the restrooms just outside of Hoku's were closed and therefore not direct guests to those restrooms? Why didn't they know about the Father's Day buffet? We do enjoy the seafood buffet. Hopefully, the next time will be a better experience."

  • "We went to the Plumeria while we were staying at the Kahala, and really enjoyed the breakfast buffet! They offer a wide range of selections, Japanese pickles and rice, an omlette bar, belgian waffles, tropical fruit…The coffee is fantastic, and it was a great experience!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Location can't be beat, broad ocean views, few tourists. Good selection has good variety, quality of ingredients is so much lower than before with higher prices. There used to be fresh squeezed juices, now from concentrate. Coffee used to be fresh Kona, now some average tasting blend. While quality of almost all ingredients has decreased to lower cost to the property, the food isn't horrible, it's just pretty good, the amazing view makes it hard not to come back."

  • "Great restaurant in a hotel that allows up to 4 free hours with parking validation. You can have a outside or inside table. Food is high quality and lunch menu is well varied for light or heavy meal. They are known for Chinese chicken salad & hot Ceasara salad. Service was excellent. Be sure to dolphins & sea turtles on the grounds."

  • "One of the things you expect from the Kahala is good service. On this particular visit, we got the complete opposite. The host and hostess did not make us feel welcome when we showed up for our reservation. They smiled and kept on working behind the desk. Finally after waiting a while, we were asked, "Can I help you?". It's odd to think a simple "Welcome, we'll be right with you." would have completely changed the mood. But again, after giving our name, we continued to wait while many empty tables were available. No "Thank you for waiting" or "Thanks for your patience". Just a cool "Right this way". The food took 45 minutes. We are talking salads. Finally after asking where our food was, it came out with apologizes. Think Twice."

  • "Took 3 guests from California. We've been talking about the Wednesday Curry for years. The only thing missing was Jim Nabors who has been there EVERY Wednesday I've ever visited!! I have more guests visiting from Nevada in two weeks and that's where I'll be taking them on a Wednesday."

  • "Local ingredients! The menu although not extensive contained so many local items, showing the uniqueness of the cuisine and the fact that they all tasted so good was another definite PLUS. But more than the food, it was the restaurant staff that made the evening great. They all had smiles on their faces & did not rush around in a blind daze. Our waiter Brandon was friendly & helpful with our selections, not to mention efficient. There was no long wait for anything. it is really nice to be treated warmly because some tourist oriented establishments do not treat the locals very well, take it from me, I know. It is encouraging for me to see that the Aloha Spirit exists here for everyone. Mahalo"

  • "You cannot beat the quiet ambiance ocean front on the Kahala beach. The food was outstanding and the service was professional if a bit aloof. We split the entree portion of Wonton Soup as a delightful appetizer and then each ordered seafood entrees that were outstanding. The bread pudding was a surprisingly light and delicious capstone to the great meal. It is worth seeking out the Kahala Resort for dining that is much quieter and closer to the water with food that equals other Honolulu fine dining!"
