    As expected, everything was great. Food, service, ambiance, but a little pricey for the size or amount of food you get. Overall, me and my family loved it and will be coming back.

    After many visits here I am sad to say I will not return. From the minute we were seated we felt rushed. Our salads arrived in a very hurried manner, even before our cocktails arrived. Though it is The Four Seasons, $34 for a martini is unreasonable. The food was good though the baked potato was hard as a rock and was sent back. It was not the experience I have enjoyed there in past visits.

    Way over priced for what it is. And the tomahawk wasn’t even 28 dry aged or any special preparation. Wheat fed beef. Service was outstanding tho and they prepared a happy anniversary dessert plate when you wrote down ur occasion . Our server was Jeremiah he was cool

    This is a great restaurant. The food is very good as well as the service, a bit pricey but the location and views are really nice. The shrimp cocktail was just that, nothing special and we just expected more. Otherwise it was a very good dinner and we will be back

    First time dining at Hualalai Grille and it was was everything I expected and more. Hayley greeted and welcomed us, and Oli was friendly, personable, attentive and overall terrific. Menu was delicious. We ordered the tasty and fresh Beet Salad, Wedge Salad, perfectly grilled 16 oz Rib Eye, delicious Macaroni & Cheese, Brussels Sprouts, Roasted Spring Vegetables, Spicy Fried Rice, and Strawberry Shortcake. We enjoyed every flavor and bite. Highly recommend Hualalai Grille.

    Four Seasonsホテルの敷地内にあるレストラン。 雰囲気も良く、ドリンク、前菜、メイン、デザートととても美味しく頂きました。 メインのステーキは焼き加減もベストで、チミチュリソースも滑らかで美味しいです。レストラン特性のステーキソースは、BBQよりですが、バランス良くお肉にマッチ! サイドのMac n Cheeseもマッシュポテトも2名で十分なサイズ。 夫は、今までで食べたMac n Cheeseで一番美味しいと喜んでました! スパイシーチャーハンは少し辛い程度で、辛いのが苦手な人でも食べれます。 予約はサンセット前がベストです。

    Outstanding service from the bar to the table and out the door. Jeff the bartender improvised on out silly requests and may have invented the next great island drink! Vahn our waiter made us feel comfortable and welcomed us with so much Aloha! We traveled from the otherside of the island for a special dinner and we were not disappointed.🤯

    If you’re looking for steak, this is the best place on the island. If you’re looking for a vegan meal, why would you go to a steakhouse? Beet salad was excellent. Can’t beat the view or the ambiance.

    Great restraint if you’re looking for an upscale steak house. The food was absolutely phenomenal and the ambiance is incredible. One down side, this is an open air restraint so when my wife and I visited, it was very windy. Just a heads up for those of you wanting to visit this establishment during windy weather. Otherwise, they didn’t skip a beat. Very well worth the price.

    Overall this is a great place to eat, great food, good service, friendly, efficient staff. The only drawbacks are (1) it can be windy and (2) it can be quite noisy due to the hard surfaces.
