My husband and I went here on a Saturday night and the live music was great! Hula dancer was fun! Drinks were expensive, but delicious and appropriately priced for Waikiki oceanfront restaurant... Bar service took a while, but the atmosphere was so nice it didn’t matter. Dinner was amazing. I highly suggest the wontons for appetizers and the macadamia nut mahi mahi for dinner. The hostess stand was kind enough to move us to a patio table right on the ocean view side. It was an amazing view.

Food was great and service was excellent, but the noise level from band at Duke's below was almost unbearable. The band was really good, but WAY too loud!

We went to the Hula Grill for a Velentines Day celebration, The atmosphere was really good and all the staff very kind and welcoming. A special mention to Logan for his excellent service and giving us a desert on the house due to having to wait a little while for our mains (however I didn’t even think it was that long). The food was delicious especially the fish special. Would definitely Recommend and return for another meal!

Arrived 30 minutes early for reservation but the hostess worked us right in with little delay. JC was our server for Valentines night and he made the time fun and enjoyable. The view was amazing and the food was even better!

Food was outstanding and the location brilliant. First night in Hawaii and there was no doubt we were here given the perfect Waikiki Beach views and the feeling of Hulu Grill! Great romantic spot. Cheaper prices are always better but you do get your value for every dollar spent there.

丁寧な接客かつ、要望とおりテラス席の一番海寄りのテーブルをとってくれました
夕方の眺めは素晴らしく刻一刻と色を変える景色が最高でした。料理もサラダが意外に普通の量だったのですが、TERIYAKI NEWYORK STEAK は14オンスとボリューム十分かつ、食後のデザートが超アメリカンサイズかつ美味しかったです。

Overall we had a good experience, but not “great”. The service was outstanding, be sure ask for Izzy’s section. The food was good, a little better than average. If you are visiting Waikiki then you should definitely have dinner at either Duke’s or The Hula Grill, but if you must pick one the I’d recommend Dukes.

サンセット目掛けて、シェフズテイスティングメニューの時間に伺いました。
日が沈むのに合わせて、サンシェードやルーフが外され、素晴らしいサンセットを望むことができました。
料理も、家族で5種類食べましたが、すべて美味しく大満足でした。
店員さんもキュートで、必要な時に必要な声掛けをしてくれて、最高でした。
日本人が少なく、アメリカンな雰囲気を味わえます(日本語メニュー完備)。

My friend and myself opted to have an early dinner at 5:30pm, and because we made the reservations through OpenTable, we were seated on the balcony. We were able to see the beautiful sunset as we were eating and all the sailboats transitioning Waikiki. We both chose options from the Chef’s 3-course tasting menu that ended around 5:45pm that cost only $27 per person. We enjoyed the shrimp carbonara, my friend liked the Caesar salad and the shaved parmesan on top and the garden salad needed more than two cherry tomatoes; and for dessert, the waiter recommended the pineapple upside down cake that had a small scoop of ice cream and dollop of whipped cream on the side. My friend thought the chocolate cake was just okay. Overall, we enjoyed the chef’s special, especially since entrees generally started at $28 as the most affordable.

We celebrated our daughter’s 8th birthday! They brought out a huge slice of ice cream cake and it was delicious! Our daughter had a wonderful time and we had a beautiful view! The service was amazing and one of our favorite restaurants when we visit!

Went for a traditional Hawaiian food, turned out very blend, lacked spiced in food. The drinks and desert were great though. The guitarist was playing in the bar. I wish he was playing somewhere everyone could see him. Felt like I was listening to the radio.

朝ご飯で利用しました。
予約時に拙い英語でテラス席が希望(クーポンは使用しません)とお店へのメッセージで記載したところ、
しっかりテラス席にしてくださいました。
担当のお姉さんもハワイの中で1番愛想がいいと感じたくらい笑顔で給仕していただけて大変満足です!
