Hoku's has a breathtaking beachside setting with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean from every table in the multi-level dining room.
Hoku's does have a dress code; gentlemen are required to wear covered shoes, sleeved shirt, and long pants. Women may wear sun dresses to elegant evening wear.
Excellent Sunday brunch! Wonderful selection and so tasty. Great service and no feeling of being rushed so you can take your time.
Love this place always. It’s our first time coming back after their renovation and they got more better . Highly recommend this place
There were flys around the buffet, so it made it difficult to choose what to eat, unless the items were already covered in a hot container or chilled on a lot of ice. The fly situation needs to be controlled. For the price and what experiences that were shared with me from family and friends, I was disappointed at the selection and layout. For one example, when you enter in through the main doors, the cashier/check in are is across from a sushi station- all near the door. It could be improved. But our seat was amazing, with beautiful ocean views.
Great cocktails, appetizers, and entrees. Great service by the front of house as well as our waitress and server. Would recommend for friends.
I had the bone-in steak. It was so soft, tender and delicious!
one guest had the scallops also very delicious.
We requested a side green salad that wasn't on the menu. Very well done!
Over all service very courteous and accommodating and friendly.
My family and I enjoyed our visit especially with our service and treats we received!! Overall Outstanding!
Such a beautiful restaurant
Make sure to take their signature dish
Ahi poke ball it's delicious
Wonderful location and lovely view w/ excellent service.
Seafood platter & Moi entree were highlights.
Extraordinary. Wonderful service and cuisine.
This was a nice experience both the view of the ocean and the remodeled restaurant was inviting. The service was great with friendly staff that explained all the different flavors that we were about to dive into. The prefixe choices were a great way to try different dishes, and not over filling, just right!
Where do I start. Just one amazing experience
Filet mignon was absurdly small for the price. Maybe 3.5 oz?
Excellent food and service. Retired from the Food and Beverage industry and I can say one of the best I have ever experienced. Well done.
Hoku's is our favorite Brunch spot. The variety and quality of the food is amazing. I would recommend it to anyone looking to celebrate something special with family.
Because of my special diet needs the chef was kind enough to accommodate tweaks to the dishes and the waiters were very understanding and kind .
We enjoy our visits to Hokus every time we dine there .
Thank you so much for making my Birthday meal excellent!!
Service poor didn’t finish meal asked for box up but they didn’t never got it. Very noisy service poor. Live next door there many times usually excellent
The restaurant was very nice with a wonderful atmosphere. Unfortunately the filet mignon was very thin at less than an inchthick so it was really lacking a soft texture overall. The deep fried poke ball was absolutely delicious and the only real highlight of the meal. Overall I feel it was over priced for the quality of the food.
I can't believe that we haven't visited Hoku's sooner! This restaurant is so lovely and everyone was so gracious.
Ambiance - romantic and relaxing. The large picture windows give you a perfect view of the water from any table in the restaurant.
Staff - impeccable! Each encounter was professional and genuine.
Food - Excellent! We ordered the famous Musubi, and knew right off the bat why this item is a hot order. Everything about it was just delicious. We also ordered the Goat Cheese salad, which was another delicious choice. Although we both liked the Big Island goat cheese croquettes better than the Maui goat cheese spread, they were both still yummy.
Our entrees were the Seafood Ravioli and the Crispy Moi. Ah-Mazing!!! Every bite was cooked to perfection.
Dessert consisted of the Lilikoi goat cheese cheesecake and the Fuji apple confit. They also brought out a complimentary Birthday cake! I'd definitely recommend the cheesecake. The tart lilikoi mixed with the subtle sweetness of the goat cheese was well balanced.
We will be back!
location, view of ocean and sunset were fabulous. Worth a short Lyft over to this location. Food was inventive and delicious but 2 small issues: that the scallops, although cooked perfectly, were cold. I believe they came out to soon and sat waiting for the other main course to come out. One other small issue is that waiter dropper=d the silverware off of one plate onto my my wife's suede purse and that stain is likely forever. But a tremendous location, inventive and very nice meal and service overall was very good.
This restaurant is absolutely impressive for special occasions. It is delicious and fine dining, yet also a buffet with lobster, king crab legs, lamb, prime rib, fancy deserts, etc. which is a rare and incredible opportunity.
Food is good but way overpriced.shold be more in the $50-60 range.
Hoku's is always a special occasion. We celebrated the end of our 10th anniversary staycation with brunch at Hoku's. It's a little difficult to reveiw buffet food since it's such a challenging format to do well but add the wonderful service and amazing view and Hoku's remains one of the best brunch buffets on the Island. All of the food dishes were done well and this is one of the few buffets that offers king crab--so awesome! The only letdown was that the sashimi wasn't quite up to par, but I'm nitpicking at this point. It was the perfect ending for our gastronomical 10th anniversary celebration.
Great service, decadent menu, fantastic wine list...absolute must with a beautiful ocean view!
My family and I really enjoyed our dinner at Hoku's. The menu offers enough selection to allow everyone in my family of 5 (which includes 3 children who usually argue over where to eat, because at least one person can't find something he or she likes on a menu) to be able to order something we each enjoyed. --My husband ordered the rack of lamb, I had the scallops, my son ordered the seafood tower (wow! Any seafood lover would have been very impressed), my daughter had the chicken, and my youngest ordered pasta off of the children's menu. All our meals were delicious! In addition to the great meals, the service we received at Hoku's was the BEST we have EVER encountered (and we have eaten at several fine dining restaurants around the world). The servers at Hoku's went above and beyond to make my children feel comfortable when I had to leave them at the restaurant to pick up my husband from work, since his car had a flat tire. The servers kept my children well fed with bread and appetizers while they were waiting for us. We greatly appreciated the aloha spirit that the servers shared. The servers really helped make our dining experience relaxing and enjoyable despite the interruption we had with the flat tire. I highly recommend Hoku's for the great food and especially the wonderful service its staff provides!
We had a wonderful brunch celebrating my birthday. Looking forward to another celebration at Hoku.
Really nice healthy luxurious foods!! Nice going Kahala!
Only observation, two flies at our window seating.
Enjoyed our evening! Food excellent! Service outstanding!
Keu ka ʻono o ka mea ʻai. He wahi ʻoluʻolu nō ia a piha ka naʻau i ka hauʻoli
In Hawaii on vacation. This is an awesome restaurant. Wonderful service, great food. Very classy and elegant. This is our 3rd or 4th time dining there. Always a great evening.
Our anniversary. Servers were great. Acknowledged our anniversary without being overly solicitous!
We had a great time with good food in a gorgeous setting.
Supet excellent i have had in hawaii. Price is reasonable!!!
I want to come again😍
We had eaten at Hoku’s several years ago and again 3 days ago. It was as good as ever. From the quality of the food, the presentation and the service, it made for a perfect meal.
I would highly recommend Hoku's. Little pricey, but the experience there is always wonderful. Food is good; some things are great, like the ahi musubi (my fav). Will definitely be back there.
Hoku's brunch is absolutely amazing. With offerings like crab legs, lobster tails, shrimp, ahi poke, mussel poke, sushi, sashimi, lamb, prime rib, and far more- it is really easy to eat your money's worth. The food is all wonderfully done/fresh and the staff does a fantastic job keeping everything full. I have been twice and was impressed both times. If you go, you have to walk around outside and see the dolphins!
Exceptional service from Julie, Tony and the rest of the staff. It was a very memorable evening. Thank you!
