As we were staying at the
As we were staying at the Hilton Village, Bali's was very convenient. Everything was good - order the steak & a few sides. WE also liked the scallop appetizer. Desserts looked great we but could barely finish our meals & had to pass. We went after sunset but still enjoyed the open room and the breeze blowing in from the ocean.

Service could have been better
At first we were seated at a table right by the door and then we asked if we could sit in a different spot. They accomodated but took a very long time. We were celebrating 3 birthdays so we didn't want to be back by the door and serving area. Our waitress forgot my husband's soup, she did not check back on our wine (which we ended up serving ourselves and had to ask for another bottle.) In the end they were better and offered up free desserts for the birthday people. The hostess gave me her card and emphasized that she will take special care of us. We go here every year but I must say this year the service was not like it used to be.

Pleasant dining & surrounds
Greeted & seated warmly by the hostess. Felt a little ignored by main waiter after we had placed our orders. It was as if we had not ordered enough, so we we not worthy of his attention. Especially when we saw how he spoke and intereacted with other tables around us. We came especially on this night for a nice dinner and for the fireworks as it was our last night in Hawaii and I wanted it to be special for my elderly mum. As it got close to the time for the fireworks I heard the waiter telling other customers that they were welcome to stay and watch the fireworks and he invited them to view them on the lanai. At no point were we offered the same. When it came to viewing the actual fireworks we could not really see them. Disappointing end.

Very nice quiet spot in the
Very nice quiet spot in the otherwise amazingly hectic Hawaiian Village. The food was well prepared. After several days of over-produced food, the straight forward simplicity of Bali's preparations was something we really wanted, and we had a lovely and very enjoyable evening

Good place to bring a date
Good restaurant to bring a date. Prices match the quality of service and food you receive. Recommend going on a Friday to enjoy the fire works on the lanai around 8:15 p.m.

A wonderful dinner! We just got married at the Hilton Hawaiian and we were treated "First Class" for our entire dinner. The food and ambiance was top shelf. The Hostess was so friendly. Our waitress was delightful and very knowledgeable about the entire menu. They had a special person who served the wine and he was outstanding. Also, they had another person who served the food who did an excellent job. It was a real team effort that made our wedding dinner memorable.

Our dining experience at Bali exceeded our expectation in every way! Amazing staff, beautiful menu and wine list, and a setting overlooking the lagoon and beach! The three of us ordered filet mignons, each with a different cooking request, and all were cooked to perfection! The best steak we have ever had anywhere! The wine steward was delightful, giving us a history and trivia lesson on our wine selection. Even though this was a pricey meal, it was worth every penny. Truly an experience that will be treasured!

Beautiful environment experience
The restaurant is worth going just for the view! The food was decent but was expecting more for the price. Also do not care how everything we ordered was al la cart. Overall....go for the experience.

Delicious & Friendly
The food was wonderful, the people were friendly, and they gave us free soup because the kitchen was taking a longer. Plus at the end of the evening, the gave us a piece of chocolate cake to take time because we were celebrating our honeymoon. The meal was a bit pricey, but it was delicious and we expected to pay a bit more for a quality meal on the island.

Service was awesome! Waiter & bus boy were the greatest and so attentive! Appetizers were o.k. We had scallops which were a bit rare but still had good flavor. We also had the Ahi Poke which was good. Entree, my husband had prime rib w/a side of grilled lobster tail cooked to perfection! It was not overdone, it had great grilled flavor but still kept the sweetness and integrity of the lobster. I had the filet mignon w/bearnaise sauce. The sauce was rich & buttery & paired perfectly w/ my med rare filet. This place loses one star on the side dishes. We had asparagus which was underdone & slathered in bearnaise, sauteed hamakua mushrooms had a weird taste to it, & brussel sprouts were prepared exactly the way i do at home-nothing special.

Special Place for an occasion
Bali is the signature restaurant at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. It sits overloking Waikiki..an unparalled view.
The restaurant specializes in steaks and seafood and I sampled thr roasted mahi mahi. It was beautiful and the
Chowder was super. Cocktails and wine are really good, too.
The staff are attentive and friendly, without being 'stuffy'
Al in all, this is a lovely spot. Yes, a little pricey, but this is 'paradise'. I have no doubt you will enjoy your evening.

We had a great night at Bali steak and seafood- the steak was amazing! Really cooked to perfection, the wait staff were really courteous and helpfully and it was a lovely night. Two little complaints though, there could have been slightly more choices on the menu and even after booking well in advance, when our party of 6 were shown to our table - it was a table for 4- so we had to awkwardly watch the female host drag another table over to ours to make it 6 and then the chairs and then we were in the way of other diners needing to get past so it was a bit of a scene that really should have been avoided as we booked well in advance for 6

Our experience at Bali Steak & Seafood was an unforgettable experience. From the ocean front view, wonderful service, and amazing food; it was a great way to end our honeymoon in Hawaii! Highly recommend the shrimp cocktail with their island flavor sauce!

Excellent view of Pacific Ocean. Food was ver good. However, the restaurant itself could use some updating to match views and food.

Views are stunning!
Wonderful dining experience on Waikiki Beach. Excellent food and service. Whole front of the restaurant opens to the beach. Be there for sunset. It is amazing!

Paradise (in Waikiki, no less!)
Excellent service and menu advice from wait staff, sommelier and general manager. Snapper two ways was interesting contrast, and side of Brussels sprouts plenty for a whole battalion. View can't be topped. Manager enthusiastically endorsed two competitors in area, which I thought was classy.

A beautiful meal and beautiful view
It doesn't get better than watching the sunset at this great dinner (only) room in the Hilton Hawaiian Village resort. The service is friendly but not intrusive and the menu sets itself apart from standard hotel fare. Kudos to the chef and staff for making this a favorite for years. PS: Dress like an adult and don't bring small children...

Traditional menu, nicely prepared
The menu is focused on beef and seafood entrees, plus some pasta dishes, none of which hints of Balinese cuisine. Good but not outstanding.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every time I come to this restaurant, I have a great time. Every time I go the chef makes Oyster Rockefeller when I ask even though it's not on the menu.
They also brought out a special rose champagne since I didn't like the one on the menu.
