I had a fabulous time at Hula
I had a fabulous time at Hula Grill.. The food was delicious and at a very reasonable price. I would visit again when I am in Honolulu.

Great for visitors to the island
Kinda pricey and food portions aren't huge for what you pay but the food is very delicious, fresh and the ambience at Hula Grill is lovely. We like to bring visitors to the island here on their final night for a good farewell dinner.

A Great and Magical evening !
The evening was magical thanks to the setting, the food and the excellent service level provided by the staff.
Kevin our server was really great; he was knowledgeable and definitely was part of the charm of the Hula Grill. The rest of the server and seating staff was very friendly and effective.
My wife and I thought it was a great restaurant to celebrate her 60th Bithday in.
Thanks to the Hula Grill for a great experience !

Excellent Sunday brunch! One
Excellent Sunday brunch! One of the best eggs Benedict preparations I've had (with seared Ahi). Fabulous view overlooking the beach; really helped us forget that it was raining on our first full day in Oahu!

Good spot for brunch
We enjoyed a very nice breakfast at the Hula Grill. I tried a typical Hawaiian dish the Moco Loco which was tasty. Great view and excellent service. Would go back.

Fantastic Dinner, Great Service!
Went to Hula Grill on recommendation from a local work colleague who is a frequent diner there. Was seated outside along the balcony wall with a great view overlooking Waikiki Beach behind the Outrigger Hotel - beautiful view! Started with a glass of Pinot Noir and the Thai Basil Shrimp Lumpia appetizer - delicious. Enjoyed a Cruncy Beet, Feta, and Asian Pear Salad before being served the evening's dinner special which included two types of fish, steamed vegetables, and rice. Finished off the event with the Homemade Ice Cream Sandwich...
From beginning to end, the server was friendly, welcoming, and prompt with drinks and food. A perfect evening!

Love everything about it!
Whenever I'm in Waikiki I always make sure I plan on going to the Hula Grille. Love it!

Always great food and atmosphere...

Simply great dinner experience.
My husband and I got a great table looking at Waikiki beach and started to love Hula Grill with their Mai Tai's made with pineapple juice. Our entire dining experience, just kept getting better and better. Tuna Poki, Macademia nut wontons. My husband had a local fish that was superb. To top it off, our service (Kelsie spelling) was outstanding. We enjoyed a relaxed dinner and excellent service. I can only recommend Hula Grill to anyone staying in Honululu without any reservations.

A Must Visit in Waikiki
We decided on this restaurant during our vacation after reading reviews on OpenTable and other apps and we are so glad we did. The service was impeccable. The dining room was busy so we sat in the bar area. The wine and cocktail selections were great, the food was good and the prices are fair. Will go back if I ever get back to Waikiki
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good all around...
Food was very good. The breakfast potatoes were fantastic and served in their little own "skillet" type dish which kept them hot and was a great presentation. Also ordered the banana and macadamia nut pancakes. While good, the neither the nuts nor the bananas were incorporated into the pancakes - just a split 1/2 banana and some nuts sprinkled on top. The coffee was very good and the room and the view are terrific. Good choice.

A Waikiki favorite!
Hula Grill is one our favorites when we head into town. It's touristy, sure, but it's also good.
Pros- A view of Waikiki beach and surfers in the ocean. It's in the heart of the action but upstairs with a balcony view. Service was excellent - waiter Edwin was very helpful and they're all on top of things (we didn't wait long for anything). Our dinners were yummy-fresh fish and scallops. All the fish dishes sound delicious, they have steaks from the Big Island, and they have a good kids menu.
Cons- The only real con is the price. And the bread pudding for dessert was not all that impressive. Overall, it's pricey, especially if you are taking the whole family, but I guess a great view and good food in Waikiki don't come cheap!

If you haven't been you must go
Such a wonderful experience at Hula grill!!! The the time we arrived until we left the service, food and conversation was great!
The hostess was smiling and made friendly conversation with us. Quick service after arriving at the table, the food arrived quickly
And the food was great!!!
I would definitely recommend to go
My seating was on the balcony while overlooking the pretty blue water..It was soooooo romantic !!

Once in a lifetime...
My wife and I had the best time here at the Hula Grill. We were seated ocean side and had the freshest fish we had ever tasted. Service was fabulous, the ambience pristine, this place is truly a gem in all regards!
6/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went for breakfast, really enjoyed sitting outside, close to the beach. very relaxing. Delicious menu selection, with Hawaiian, Asian, and typical American selections. If you're up early due to jet lag, might as well have a relaxing, scenic breakfast/brunch!
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food with a beautiful view. We ate dinner there on the weekend while the band was playing downstairs, so we had music to accompany our great view of the ocean. The seafood was first class, the appetizers were awesome, and the staff was terrific. One of our favorite dinners in Waikiki.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is romantic, amazing and perfect for an unforgettable night.
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great view and good food
No complaints, except parking in Waikiki is expensive, which is why we locals don't go there much. If you spend money at Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center (over $20, I think) you can get your parking validated there and go next door to eat at Hula Grill. The food was very good: good bread, salad, and delicious rib eye steak. My wife had swordfish, which also was excellent. Mushroom risotto was just ok. Outdoor tables are right over the beach (2nd floor of the Outrigger Waikiki) and there was a band playing at the beach bar below us, which was good but a bit loud. The view and food make this worth the effort. But expect to pay for those.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friends were impressed with my selection of Hula Grille. They were impressed that I made a reservation. They loved the menu and everyone ate evrything on their plates, they were clean like there was never anything on their plates in the beginning. Five stars in every area!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
I loved the food. I had fish tacos one night for dinner, when there was live music and a hula dancer. Nice! The next day I went for brunch and had the banana coconut pancakes and they were GOOD! The bacon was good and the service was on point. I also had a seat with a great view of the ocean and Diamond Head. I will come back here when I go to Hawaii for sure and will definitely recommend it to others. Please go !

We celebrated my sister's 50th birthday here.
We arrived at 5 pm in time for the "Chef's Choice" menu.
We were immediately seated and our waiter came right away.
Three of us dined from the Choice menu and the food was wonderful. Please be advised though that the Chef's Choice offers three courses but smaller protions than the regular menu.
My sister was given a complimentary dessert for her birthday which was large enough for all 5 of us to have a "taste."
The only "complaint" was the bread pudding dessert. The ice cream was wonderful but the pudding was pretty bland.
The view from the restaurant is one of the best around!! Although we dressed for dinner because of the occasion, the restaurant is "casual dining."
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
You are going to love it!
We celebrated our anniversary in Hula Grill, it couldn't be better !!
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good experience. Nice view of ocean from our table. Food great, service good too. Would recommend
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I want to thank the young lady at the front desk for sitting us at a table with a fantastic view!!! I say this because I made reservations for 0930, but we came a little early. She stated that she didn't have a table yet, but she would do her best to accommodate us. She came through even though it was busy!!! The food, service & view was excellent!!! Again Thank You!!!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
It doesn't get much better
It doesn't get much better in Honolulu - on the beach, great food and great people. Everyone should stop by at least once and have the Hula Pie.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
SUN PM -LOUD MUSIC FROM DUKES BELOW
Please note that Duke's (below Hula Grill) has very LOUD music on their outside patio ONLY on SUNDAY NIGHTS. Diners at Hula Grill can not hold a conversation at their table.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Five Star Service
Ryen(waiter) made my wife and I feel like VIP
Clearly he is an asset to your company.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent little find
Stumbled across this restaurant searching through open table. It had good reviews and I have to echo them. We ate here around 9pm both nights, got tables right next to the edge overlooking the ocean. They have torches flickering. About the most romantic place we've ever had dinner at. Service was fantastic both times, food selection is fairly limited but very good. We were only in Waikiki for a week but had to eat here twice, the first time was so perfect.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every time I goto Waikiki (2-3 times a year) I always make sure I come here for dinner. Great food and service!
Highly recommend if you get a chance to go!!!!!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Same great view and food
The view is spectacular and the food is good.
Been coming here for years!
Seems to be a mainstay.
This table service is far superior to those buffets,
The view of Diamond Head is Spectacular !!!!!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our experience at hula grill was absolutely amazing!!! I would say out of the 7 nights dining in waikiki it was by far our favorite dining experience! We had a table right by the balcony over looking waikiki beach. Out server was amazing he was very helpful with food and wine selections! The ambiance was so peaceful and romantic!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place in Waikiki
The restaurant is one floor above Duke's, but Hula Grill Waikiki is quiet enough to comfortably talk about business.
The live music isn't blasting and we didn't have to yell to be heard.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went early. Enjoyed happy hour in bar - excellent Mai tai drinks. Then enjoyed the chefs tasting menu that is offered from 4:45 to 6:00. All three courses were outstanding! Our server, Kevin, was wonderful which only added to the beautiful evening. We highly recommend this restaurant. Also - we are glad we grabbed a 4:45 dinner reservation: No waiting, an lovely table along the rail overlooking Waikiki, and the well-prepared 3 course tasting menu that is a total steal at $25. It was easily the best meal we had all week! Hint: enjoy happy hour in the bar first because those specials do not apply in the dining room.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were looking for a relaxing yet delicious experience and we got it here. Perfect!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Such a restaurant were in Japan
I wish such a restaurant were in Japan. When I made a reservation at OpenTable, I could reserve in 17:00 and after 2100. I don't know a reservation for 1700-2100 can be accepted.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I had dinner at the Hula Grill in Waikiki on 11/8. We enjoyed it very much. We had a wonderful table and could see the sunset which was beautiful that evening. The food was very good, we took advantage of the three course early dinner. The service seemed to be slow at times, but with such a beautiful view we did not care much.
The music from the beach bar downstairs can be loud at times, depending on where your table is.
Overall another great dinner at the Hula Grill
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding Food and View
Very beautiful view of Waikiki. Calm and peaceful restaurant setting. Food matched the view, both were outstanding.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a great breakfast!
I've discovered that I'm officially gluten intolerant, so I found Hula Grill when searching for gluten free menus. They had delicious food, and we plan on trying either lunch or dinner here as well. Our server, while pleasant, disappeared after our meals were delivered, and I had to chase down another server for more water a couple of times. Other than that, we will definitely make our way back before we leave.
