The hostess was super friendly and accommodating as were the bartender and our waiter Logan. Food was disappointing generally with the exception of The bamboo steamed long beans. They were delicious, very authentic flavor, tasty spicy, although they looked like string beans not long beans! Our other choices had way too much sugary sweetness in the sauces. Too much of an attempt to provide a Hawaiian food experience as opposed to a good chef-inspired meal.

As always Hula Grill was amazing! Anytime we have family in town to visit we make sure to make at least one trip here for the fantastic service, superb food, and breath taking views.

With a good table, this restaurant is quite delightful. However, we were seated right next to the kitchen entrance and that took away much of the charm.

What a gorgeous ocean view! Request a table on the rail/balcony area if you can. I was pleasantly surprised how great the food tasted. I had an excellent coconut seafood chowder (shrimp, lobster, fish). It was amazing...and I’m very picky. The green beans side was fresh and crunchy and The potstickers appetizer was very good as well. Finish up with the hula pie. And did I mention the amazing view. Book at sunset if possible. Cheers!

なんといってもロケーションが最高です。ホテル内とあり、コストパフォーマンスの点ではやや高い感じはします。
サービスはそこまで気取らない店員さんですが、温かいものを感じました。
食事の量は大人2人、子供2人で、3品頼めば充分です。アヒポキは最高でした。
ハワイアンを感じたい方にオススメです。店内の装飾がステキでハワイを実感できるはず。

雰囲気が良くて美味しいお肉を食べたいならここがオススメです。

ビーチサイドで波の音を聞きながらボリューム満点のお肉が食べられます。
シーフードの盛り合わせも注文しましたが、海老がぷりっぷり、蟹は甘く、牡蠣は辛めの味付けでした。

店員さんもすごくいい人ばかりで、英語が出来なくても笑顔で接客してくれるので、安心して訪問してください。
せっかくの旅行なので美味しいものを食べた方がいいですよ‼️

This is by far one of the most romantic restaurants in Oahu and certainly in Waikiki. We have made this beautiful restaurant our favorite place to celebrate our anniversary. Servers are efficient and personable without being intrusive. The best place is outside along the rail overlooking the ocean. There is always a gental breeze in the most comfortable surroundings. Waikiki has always been a disappointment but the Hula Grill is always a welcome oasis. The menu is extensive and always perfect. The server will guide you with customizing the perfect menu.

I have been to hula grill many, many times. Also in Maui. I like to get the chefs tasting menu. This time, I thought the choices weren’t as good & I didn’t really care for my choice. Shrimp & pasta. The desert we chose was awful. Some kind of chocolate pie? The salad was the best thing. My granddaughter had the chicken & it was tough. The choices in the Maui hula grill were better. (Last year) I was disappointed for the price you pay. Great lava flows!

The service here was top notch! It was our honeymoon. The host immediately told our waitress she acknowledged it promptly. Their communication as a team was outstanding. The table next to us has a kid who dropped his milk and it hit my husbands back. They staff came over apologized for him soda water a towel and then comped 2 of our drinks. They also got us a dessert for our honeymoon. I give this place my highest recommendation!
