    Poor service and overpriced and mediocre food. The view was beautiful but the rest was very poor. If I pay $40 for an entree, I expect it to at least taste good. Both of our food was unseasoned and the waiter was trying to hurry us out.

    I was a little upset since I requested a view when I reserved months ago and we were against the back wall. 😢. I don’t believe anyone looked at my request. I mentioned to hostess and she was not concerned at all. She told me we would have to wait at least another 20 mins (Making our 5:30 reservation after 6). Two tables near the beach were open within 5mins. Our waiter was great and knowledgeable. I told him we were celebrating our 35th anniversary and he immediately mentioned a free dessert. (This was also on our reservation request). Nice atmosphere overall. Just disappointed in hostess attitude (person who walked us to our table)

    AJ was our waiter and he was excellent! We had the Korean crispy chicken and didn't care for the broken jagged ends of the drumstick-maybe wrap some foil or something to make it more appetizing?? I had the Mac Nut Chicken appetizer which was wonderful and of course the Hula Pie!

    An extremely busy and noisy restaurant. Great view overlooking Waikiki Beach. Food was good but not great, must be tough to cook for so many guests. A noticeable drop in food quality and dining experience compared to the Hula Grill on Audi at Kaanapali.

    Came here to enjoy our last night in Hawaii. We were her 5 years ago and had a brilliant night. Tonight was not at all brilliant. Terrible food (dry chicken, dry rice, flavourless ahi); basic service (sure we had our water glasses refilled but there was zero attention to clearing dirty plates, drink refresh etc). There seemed to be a lot of staff but no one doing a lot. Really disappointing and expensive night with no real value at all. You can take your ah set photos for free on the beach and eat lovely Hawaiian food elsewhere.

    I want to start by saying that our food and our server (Nicole?) at Hula Grill were fantastic. Absolutely no complaints. All compliments, in fact. However, there were a few hiccups. We checked in about 15 minutes early for our reservation and were told that we would need to wait 20ish minutes for our table. No problem. We knew we were early. We waited almost 45 minutes and watched numerous people get seated for dinner, despite arriving after we did. When I approached the host stand, they told me that my party (of two -- my wife and me) was already seated. They gave our table away. They then proceeded to seat us in an adjacent restaurant area. There was absolutely no vibe whatsoever in the empty adjacent restaurant area, although we were able to overlook the Duke's Waikiki outdoor patio below. Again, Nicole (?), our server, was fantastic and apologized profusely for the mixup at the host stand. And the Duke's family of restaurants never disappoints from a food standpoint. It's always top quality and prepared perfectly. This was a blip, to be sure. We would not hesitate to visit another restaurant from this ownership group -- and, in fact, we visited two others during our time in Hawaii.

    Had high hopes for this place. The environment/ambiance of being on the water was incredible! Bread appetizer was average but you have to try the Chile oil. My mahi was undercooked and had a strong fishy taste (which later made me sick). The crab on top of the mahi was dry and could have benefited from some sauce/butter. My husband got the flank steak special which was pretty good with fresh Parmesan grated on top. The hula pie was like eating an Oreo ice cream cake just okay. For a late night drink we will be back but not for the food.
