    The service was excellent. Ordered the wedge salad and the bacon was inedible. The pizza was ok, not great. Would order differently if we give it another chance. The ambience was ruined by a horrible musician that sounded like a dying cat. Go early and avoid the country western singer’s howling.

    We thought the food quality was mediocre, depending what you ordered. Seafood Linguine not good, watery sauce. French dip sandwich great. Stick to simple pub food type items, we suggest. Drinks not great, except the standard Mai tai was great, we suggest that. Place was almost empty on Friday night at 6pm and still almost in a “holiday” week of January, which perhaps indicates that need to up their game. We had a reservation but could have walked in and picked any table at 5:30.

    Took a very long time to get served and then even longer for food. The food order was incorrect and some of the meals cold. Considering the hour and 25 minutes to get served I was annoyed they added a 22% gratuity for my family of 6 which included young kids. Very disappointed.

    Offered a dinner buffet for $85 but opted for a la carte selections as buffet was lacking vegetarian options. Food was three star which matched our expectations from reading the reviews.

    Subpar meal. The Caesar salad was too warm and too soft, the Mahi Mahi tasted liked it had been boiled, etc etc. Can’t believe this what they serve at the fancy beachside Marriott!

    Great food and service! But Super loud and impossible to have a conversation. There we’re two different sources of very loud noise, some may call it music. I can’t believe a manager didn’t notice and simply lowered the volume of the speakers. If not for the incredible Noise, I would give a 5 stars.

    We joined a bit later in the evening so that may add to the opinion .... We had a buffet dinner - lots of good options - seemed like it was hard to keep up with the demands of certain foods. Nice outdoor ambiance. Waiter was attentive. Not sure the price and quality of food was a great match - for the price, maybe it would have been better for a larger spread of food options. I would suggest arriving earlier than we did to avoid food arrival snafus.

    The menu is diverse and the food is tasty. Live music in the evenings in a beautiful outdoor environment. Staff is great! Our only complaint is there are no cushions on the barstools. We mentioned it again last night and the bartender said literally almost everyone that sits down comments on it. Please bring the barstool cushions back as the height ratio stool to bar is way off and everyone visibly shrinks about a foot once seated. It is really quite uncomfortable.

    Ate at the prime rib and crab buffet. A little pricey at $85 each. Service was poor. The locals came in droves. I doubt they paid the full fare. Lots of hugging and fist bumps with the staff. Have been there many times on non-buffet nights which provided better service and decent entrees.

    Prime Rib and Crab buffet for dinner with extended family. Excellent value for people who like to eat. Can't speak for epicurean palates or ambiance. Open air seating was nice with a good view of sunset over the pool. Other tables are far enough for noise isolation. Live music did a decent rendition of Iz favorites; bit too loud for my like, but others in my party liked it. Skip the $15 Mai Tai. Mine tasted horrible. Other than the Mai Tai, recommended.

    No one met us at the table to let us know they were our servers. We had to ask for everything - water- how to order, had to track someone down for our drinks and our check at the end. Super noisy, couldn’t even talk. Food was bland and no flavor. Terrible experience for an $800.00 Thanksgiving meal

    Love the idea behind showcasing local chefs and ingredients but the execution was less than desirable considering the high dining price. Pork theme was interesting but needed a play of sauces and contrasting vegetables with stronger flavors to work with the relatively mild pork. Visually appealing and nicely plated.

    The table was set outside w a beautiful view of the sunset. This was a fixed menu wrapped around a young lady’s hog she raised for 4H and won honors. It was neat to see the Marriott invite her and her father to the dinner to share her story. Chef did a fantastic job w his team on all 4 courses. Highly recommend

    Talk about a special experience!!! A 5 course prix fixe dinner supporting local farmers, ranchers and fishermen with locally sourced and organic produce that is beautifully prepared, incredibly innovative, and delicious. Our meal was centered around a Kaunamano bred Royal Berkshire award winning pig. Even more special, the 4H girl who raised the pig and her father joined us for dinner. (I had her sign my menu!) The pork was used in the appetizer as well as the main dish, a beautiful center cut of pork. The abalone appetizer was served on a beautiful Luau risotto, and the J A. Farm Caesar was just spectacular. The cocktail paring was equally innovative and delicious but I could not have driven after consuming the 4 cocktails.

    A fantastic evening thanks to Chef Jason and his team. All of the dishes were delicious, innovative and so beautifully prepared. Most important- we loved that every item was sourced from local Hawaii farms and loved hearing Chef Jason’s stories about where our food came from. Thanks Marriott for supporting small farmers. A-plus event.

    We very much enjoyed our second Hawaii Calls Summer Chef’s Series at The Waikoloa Marriott. Executive Chef Jayson Kanekoa’s support for our Hawaii Island food producers and his team’s fabulous presentations make it a special night out. It’s a bit pricey for retirees like us, but we feel the value is very good. Once a month splurge while the series continues!!

    We had an amazing time when we stumbled upon this great locally sourced dinner experience. Intimate group of people ensures you aren’t over crowded, food was high quality, narrative by the chef and his team was great. Hard to beat dining as the sun drops in the sky over the Pacific.

    We booked the Thursday Chef series. Neat concept -meeting the chef and Ceo from the fish farm and drink rep was pretty cool and we enjoyed hearing them talk about the food and drink. Disappointed that we were in the back corner of the bar with no view. This was misleading from the pictures on OpenTable, we thought we would have a better view of the beach and bay. We were also surprised that we were sharing a big table with other guests. It wasn’t explained well in the description of the experience. The oysters, salad, fish and dessert and rum were good.

    Chef’s Series dinner- very nice evening featuring locally grown and sustainable food, with brief presentations by some of the producers. I think for the price at least one beverage (wine or aperitif) should have been included- but not a bad value for four courses

    This Chef’s meal was AWESOME! I’m not a fan of oysters so I tried 2 of them and gave the last one to my husband. Everyone else at the table loved them! The rest of the meal was SUPER EXCELLENT! The salad dressing was so good! The fish was something that I had never had and I loved it. The strawberry dessert was light but delicious! My husband and I did the cocktail pairing with the mean instead of the wine pairing and were pleasantly surprised! JUST DO THIS MEAL! You will not regret it!

    We were there for Chef's special monthly four course set meal event. $125 plus tax and drinks pairing extra Food was very good, but portions on a small side, refreshing family style group seating, very nice atmosphere, hosts very welcoming and attentive. We had cocktail pairing which was additional $40 and cocktails were very nice but rather small which was slightly disappoInting. They did not offer an extra cocktail or something else at the end which would have been a nice touch. Overall a great experience, well done Hawaii Calls!

    The reservation was right on time and no waiting, they were a little busy so that was appreciated. Sun sets at 6:30ish so if you don’t want the front tables keep that in mind. It was seafood night and I had the daily catch which was opakapaka and it was grilled to perfection. Wife had the mahi and she enjoyed it. Maui onion soup was shared and it was delicious! The salad is huge so maybe share it? Pacing was right on and the restaurant manager greeted everyone to make sure everything was great. Desert of vanilla and yes macadamia I e cream were just right. With tip it was $140 for 2.

    The food was good as they had plant based options which I appreciated very much. My husband isn't vegan & liked his food choices as well. It was a beautiful spot seeing the sunset & then when it was dark the planet Venus could be seen, it was beautiful. The servers were very attentive and happy to answer questions. BTW the pool was warm as I wished I stayed there as the Hilton was cold water.
