We were there for their 50% off on entrees, ......you can’t beat the price nor the friendly service and good food!
The food and service was excellent. We had the spring roll, crab bisque and risotto appetizers and shared the mahi mahi. It was perfect and the setting is very nice over looking the pool area.
The waitress didn’t come to our table until 20 minutes later after we were sit. She didn’t bother to remove the used plates. The $24 Grilled Tofu came with only 2 pieces. What a joke!
We ate here the evening that we checked into the Marriott. Very enjoyable and some of the best fish I've ever had (opaka/pink snapper) I don't know what was in the sauce but it was magical. The coconut mushroom sausage risotto was also delicious. Sometimes hotel restaurants can be meh especially if they have a gorgeous view, but there was definitely enough attention to food here.
Went to Hawaii Calls at the Waikoloa Marriott for Easter brunch. It’s a nice open air setting, the service was good and the food was good as well. For a big Hotel brunch buffet on a busy holiday weekend, it was pretty good quality. Good omelette and waffle station, bacon was crispy. Nice salad bar choices. Fun dessert selections that were, sadly, more beautiful than they were delicious. Overall a good experience. Not super fancy or gourmet, and the wait for the omelette was a little long. But coffee stayed full and there were lots of choices. Expensive, but about what you’d expect for a big resort hotel.
Big let down. I know we were going to get Easter brunch. Crab legs, prime rib (then best thing available), lots of other choices. But geesh... Everything was slightly off. Very beautiful location but absolutely not worth the price.
Very nice staff, wonderful food!
The buffet with prime rib and crab legs was fun. I got my fill of king crab legs with clarified butter to my satisfaction.
Quality all around
Excellent flavors and decent portions
Great location just back from the beach
Not much food options for the price, very limited...........................................................................................
The Friday and Saturday prime rib and crab buffet was very good. Plenty of options in addition to the crab legs and prime rib. Both were very good. Wine list is reasonably priced.
We enjoyed the prime rib and snow crab buffet. All you could eat and many other extras.
Good value buffet
We always come here to dine, menu is really good and tasty, service is excellent and affordable.
We have eaten at this restaurant at least 5 times anc it is going downhill. Food was average and the service was average. Probably will not go again.
Lots of children. Wife’s Ahi was excellent. My shortribs were just Ok. A bit “gamey”. Drinks were fine. Service was great. Would probably not go back.
Our second time here and food and service always very good. The only "bad taste" this time was that the restaurant canceled both our reservations and the menu venue!
Due to a very large convention on property, they canceled the regular dinner special without notifying us ahead of time! We had to talk to a "manager" before they agree to honor everything.
Three of us had the prime rib which was very delicious and I tried the fresh catch, seared ahi, which was also very good.
Aaron, our server, was friendly, attentive and efficient.
After the bad beginning, the dinner ended quite well!
We ordered from the All Day menu, very affordable. Generous portions. Great happy hour! Try the Mojito Pina Colada, absolutely delicious!
Our server Michael was wonderful.
Our compliments to the staff as a big storm came in just before our reservation
Almost no delay. Food was served very quickly
Service was very slow - and the attitude of the service staff was not the best. When asked if we could get some bread with dinner the response was “Your food is here,” and they walked off. If it wasn’t for the 50% discount on Sunday dinner, this totally would not be worth it. As it is, it was barely worth it, even considering hotel resort markup.
We go for the crab legs...delicious.
A few faults
Flys are attracted to the food , maybe add fans for air movement to deter them.
Asked several times for new utensils and extra napkins, I finally got them myself.
Need small seafood forks to get into the legs and claws.
The staff were great all around!
Understaffed wait staff. Incredibly slow service. Nice setting. Good portions. But the slow service distracted from dining experience
This was terribly disappointing. We waited for our table despite reserving and then waited another half hour for drinks. I have a gluten intolerance and while I indicated that in the reservation, our server had zero idea what I meant by that. I could appreciate that at a small roadside establishment but not at a restaurant of this size and caliber . Instead of provding alternatives or substitutions when I inquired about menu items, he just told me I couldn’t eat the dish I was inquiring about. When I asked why, he then talked to the chef. After a long wait, He returned he told me I could indeed eat the pistachio crusted Mahi Mahi. My husband is not gluten free and ordered the same thing. When we got our entrees, mine was missing the mashed potatoes. Never was a substitution offered. It’s unacceptable in a hotel and restaurant of this size. The entree was $34. That’s an Epic fail for the Marriott Waikoloa.
Service was a bit slow, but it was Superbowl Sunday. Maybe they didn't plan enough staff for a busy evening?
Couldn’t get waited on so we left
Went reluctanly based on some of the reviews I read but we had a great meal and service. The food was really good and the waiter was great. I would give this restaurant a shot. So much better meal than the outrageously priced Kamuela Provision Company.
The outdoor setting was great, but don’t go for the food. Boring menu. My fish was o.k. But it was served with plain old white rice and four green beans. And the rice was dry and sticky. My husband was not impressed with his rib eye. But ... we did enjoy the atmosphere and our server was friendly.
Service was just ok. Food was good and fair price compared to similarly located restaurants. Good for kids.
We went for the all you can eat prime rib and crab legs buffet. All of the food outstanding. I’d definitely recommend them!
It took 10 minutes for a waiter to come to our table. He did not write anything down, and after 35 minutes of waiting, brought my wife the wrong dish. The appetizer was served with the entrees. Very poor management overall, and feral cats crawling among tables to boot.
Our server was terrible... we suspected there may be problems with our order when he tried to memorize it and ask us twice after he left What we ordered. Of course the orders were wrong. The prime rib was good, the chicken was good, but the lobster was almost raw. The server could care less😕 We talked to the restaurant manager the next day and she apologized and picked up the tab for our dinner the next night.
For the exorbitant price of the meal and it being a Christmas dinner we were expecting more then the limited food choices on the buffet. We were very disappointed.
We enjoyed the Christmas Eve buffet
Just now catching up on some of our reviews. Dined at Hawaii Calls on 12/15 for their prime rib and seafood buffet. As a result of hotel remodeling the buffet area and selections have been reduced to make space available for the fitness center. Food selection not as varied as in past visits and quality was either very good or marginal depending upon selection. Very little seafood. Service adequate; but, generally more busing than table visits and/or effort at making you feel welcome, etc. Outdoor seating with views of pool and ocean made the experience very relaxing.
Excellent food and very nicely plated. The service was superb.
Jennee(sp) & Arron are awesome servers for you to enjoy
Thanksgiving Dinner 2017. Food was overall very good. A little pricey for a buffet. But yes it is a resort in Hawaii on Thanksgiving Day. Service was excellent.
We thought that the restaurant was Oceanside but it was not. The meal was good but not as good as many of the other ones we visited. Look for their nightly specials, which are a great value.
