    Truly one of the most phenomenal meals I have had (8 course tasting plus wine pairing). Very expensive but you get what you pay for. Excellent staff (even had shawls available that my wife took advantage of when she was cold). 10/10

    My husband and I went here for my birthday. It was our first vacation in 25 years so we really wanted it to be special. Hoku’s helped with that. The staff were kind and welcoming. The food was honestly the most delicious I’ve ever had. Ever. A special treat was brought out for my birthday, which was so lovely. It was something I’ll never forget. I loved getting to try new things, and we felt so well cared-for. We had the four course tasting menu. I tried the duck, which was so so good. The pineapple upside-down cake was as beyond what I could have imagined. It was all good, honestly, and the word ‘good’ doesn’t quite cut it but I can’t imagine anything coming close to describing what a delicious experience this was. Also, the restaurant is gorgeous. The lighting is amazing. The whole atmosphere took my breath away. I’d love to go back some day. I am so thankful!

    Hoku'sResponded 2 days agoAloha! So honored to have hosted your long-awaited vacation. Pleased you had a grand experience. We hope you are able to work periodic vacations into your schedule. Mahalo!

    We were welcomed to a table with a beautiful view of the ocean. Multiple brunch courses were prepared for us and presented exquisitely. We started with fresh juices and guava mimosas. The fresh fruit and pancakes were amazing as was the salmon benedict atop a delicious cheddar biscuit. We enjoyed a selection of sashimi, sushi and a crispy rice roll filled with poke. Again, we were served butter fish and prime rib as we had enjoyed the evening prior. Dessert was a trio of chocolate mouse cake, mango tapioca pudding and (in our opinion) the best bite was the bread pudding paired with a beautiful white tea.

    There are choices of course menu, either of 4 or 8. Both have choice to make individual starter, appetizer, entrée and dessert. Choice of 8 have more portion to choose from and will have selection of fish menu too. I would recommend the choice of 4 but if you wish to eat something various, 8 can be fabulous too.

    This was the only poor restaurant experience in our 3 week holiday in USA. It was simply not fine dining. The waiters wearing purple rubber gloves reminded us of restroom cleaners; there is no view from the windows after sunset and the jazz music tempo was distracting. The starters & appetizers were delicious & well thought through but then other waiters started noisily clearing other tables around us, carrying arm loads of used tablecloths as they prepared tables for breakfast passing behind us like we were in a corridor. By this stage it was only 8.45pm and we were not the last diners. As for the two remaining courses, the salmon would have been improved with the sauce on the side, perhaps as a mousse, and the lobster/cauliflower not worth the additional charge. Lastly, the profiteroles were stale so inedible. Our first 2 courses were good and the waiter was friendly and knowledgeable, hence our 2 stars. Disappointing.

    Hoku'sResponded on September 25, 2022Aloha, Deborah! Highly disappointed your visit was not to your expectations and more enjoyable. We value your visit and feedback. Mahalo.

    The value equation doesn't work here...$570 for two with only a single glass of wine apiece...and an $82 supplement for a truly mediocre (and tiny) piece of Waygu beef!!?? Wonderful and friendly staff, but the kind of place that wouldn't last 9 months in New York-Boston-Chicago, etc.

    This was an amazing experience. My fiancé and I had the four course option for each of us and it was definitely well worth the $$$$. Food was presented in such an elegant way and the flavors were spot on. My favorite dish was the thinly sliced tuna, with seaweed, avocado and radishes. Service was outstanding!

    It was between Hoku’s and 53 by the Sea for my birthday dinner. I chose Hoku’s. Requested to be sat near the window, but no mention about it when we were lead to our booth seat. We both chose the 4 course menu. For my entree, I decided on the lobster ($30 supplemental) and there were barely lobster pieces, but so much cauliflower disguised as lobster. Pretty disappointing. The quality of the ingredients were great, but the cooking part of it wasn’t executed to match the price point. Also, the food came out so slow. We were there for 2.5 hours! Our server was so so sweet, but that couldn’t make up for the expensive dinner we both didn’t enjoy. For both our tasting menus and 4 cocktails, our total came out to almost $500. Guess you’re paying for the view, but our table was facing one of the walls between the windows.. wouldn’t recommend
