This is turning into one of our favorite breakfast spots in Waikiki! We love the view and the service is always friendly! But the best part by far is the food! We had the breakfast burrito and the breakfast BLT which were both amazing! Will definitely be returning!

We came once during our first day on Waikiki beach. The brunch menu was well-priced...and the $20 loco moco is still one of the best breakfast or loco moco’s I’ve had. The waiter was very good to us about recommendations for drinks (which were bomb, try the POG) and customer service.

We came back with a friend for an evening dinner. The experience was totally different. The dinner menu was much more expensive (2x) - we recommend going for the pupu menu if you’re not willing to pay over $30 for an entree. The waitress was not as charming nor accommodating as the waiter in the afternoon trip.

We recommend visiting Hulu’s grill during lunch hours as it is nearly empty and you are able to get a seat next to the large balcony overlooking the beach - a stunning view of Waikiki beach. The menu is much more appealing then and the waiter you get will have more time to attend to your needs and help you enjoy your time there.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and evening at hula grill. Our server Rylan was excellent and made our evening special. Bentley also welcomed us and made us feel that this restaurant is a very special neighborhood gem. Thanks to Drew the manager as well. Our macadamia nut crusted crab Opah was tender and moist. We celebrated with lava flows topped the evening off with hula pie! Thanks for a wonderful evening and views of the amazing sunset and beautiful ocean.

The service was just bad. We waited a while for a server and when the waitress showed up she asked for our order. We are in a nice restaurant and planned on a relaxing evening with a cocktail. We stopped her and ordered a drink. They came quickly delivered by a nice lady who was delivering everyone’s drinks.
Eventually The waitress came back for our order. We had decided on steaks one ordered them She didn’t ask about salads or sides. The menu said they were featuring a local farm and listed several of their vegetables. No mention of them. Dinner was very good as always. After dinner the same waitress asked us if we wanted coffee or tea. No mention of dessert or after dinner drink. It was like dinner from a five star and service from a fast food.

2歳の子供を連れて夕暮れ時に訪れました。
子供におえかきセットを頂けたりして優しい対応で、子連れでも全然大丈夫な所です。
ただ、担当のウェイターがとにかくせっかちな対応でゆっくりできませんでした。
料理が出てくるのが本当に遅くて3品食べるだけに2時間以上かかりました。
景色は夕日がとっても綺麗で最高ですが、海辺でも店内でも生演奏がとにかく音量が大きいし、長くて、だんだん耳が疲れます。

料理は特別美味しいわけでもなく、まずくもなく、コスパはいいとは思いませんでした。

ハワイらしい雰囲気はとっでも味わえるので、良い席をリクエストするのが良いと思います。

25th wedding anniversary. Table by the ocean with sunset. Complementary Hula pie for the both of us. Amazing place ;) Fish tacos are divine and the mahi-mahi sublime. I would definitely recommend this place.

The staff was very engaging. Any staff that passed you acknowledged your presence. Our waitress, Valerie, was exceptional. Food was excellent. They sat us close to be able to view the ocean. Yhey acknowledged our anniversary dinner with a Hula Pie. Decadent and delicious. This restaurant is perfect for a special event and well worth the price.

1人でも嫌な顔されずに入店。
1名でも躊躇なくテラス海側席に通してくれた。

メニューが運ばれて来た時にはなかったメニューをチョイス(chef's tasting menu)。
新たにメニュー表を持ってきてくれた。

受付から始まり、席に案内してくれる人、担当の人、料理を運ぶ人、と役割があるようだが、料理を運ぶ人以外のサービスは、申し分ない。

料理も美味しくいただきました。

次回も利用したい。

Absolutely one of the nicest restaurant experiences of our life! It was my girlfriends birthday and Ashley Tesoro, the cousin of one of my business associates had arranged excellent seating and other thoughtful items that made our dinner and event very special. I am very sorry to say that I cannot recall the names of our server or the evening manager that took care of us but they were both outstanding! Thank you so much for an awesome experience! If it helps identify the people who worked that night, we were there Sunday, Sept 29th at 7:30. THANK YOU!

Great service, delicious food, amazing ambience - well worth the trip upstairs from what seems to be the more popular Duke's. Hula Grill has it all - the upstairs location provides the best ocean views and the food is so fresh and tasty. The staff clearly take pride in providing attentive service and when you are there, it seems you're the only customer around! Would highly recommend reservations and would highly recommend this as a stop while in Waikiki!

My Prosecco was flat, my fish was raw in the middle. The server took the fish off and brought a new Prosecco but seemed less than thrilled to be there. I did get a very nice ice cream birthday cake but overall for the price we weren’t impressed.
