Our reservation was at 7am. We were the second party in line. And all of a sudden 3 different parties cut us and the hostess checked them in and didn’t even acknowledge us while we have been waiting. That was annoying.

Our waitress was kind and checked on us often. The view was great.

It was just annoying waiting in line and having a reservation just to let others cut myself and the other coupe ahead of us.

We had the rib-eye chop and mahi mahi. Both were fantastic. The best steak I’ve had in years. Ambiance is nice and we had a table closest to the ocean. With a reservation we were seated immediately. Service was outstanding.

Food was good but the overall feeling is chaotic and slightly rushed. Mainly due to the front desk experience. It’s not a romantic place but does have a nice view of Waikiki beach. Prices seemed reasonable. Waiter was pleasant.

We had an absolute blast. The manager Luke was the best I've seen all week. We had my birthday dinner there and had top notch service and food went back a few days later he remembered who we were and we got top notch service again. The food was the best that I had in years visiting Waikiki. Everybody was so friendly so attentive. Thank you so much for making our dinners memorable.

From the moment we stepped into the restaurant, we noted the smile and prompt service. The waitress offered recommendations when asked. My husband ordered mahi-mahi and I ordered the loco moco, and both were cooked to perfection. We listened to live music from Duke’s, which was one floor down. The view of Waikiki Beach was just what we wanted. Highly recommended.

Accommodating, which we appreciated. We asked for a table closest to the ocean front and they were able to give us this. Thank you Hula Grill!

It was a perfect evening! Our waitress was attentive and the meal was timed perfectly. The mac nut shrimp were the best appetizer we’ve had in a very long time! Our meals were both very good (fish and chips for him, shrimp carbonara for me). We shared a piece of hula pie, and it was just as good as we had heard. The ambiance was perfect with the musicians playing down at Duke’s and the waves just a few steps away.

Amazing! Definitely best place and ambiance on the strip. Book ahead, Duke’s and Hula Grill are booked out 2 months ahead with COVid restrictions. You must go here, and get Hula pie. We’ve been to the locations on Maui 6 years ago and was happy to get again in Oahu.

They did not disappoint. Went there with a friend to celebrate her birthday. We’re able to be seated at a rail table (which I had requested).
Drinks were great, food, excellent, and the surprise birthday dessert was superb!
Ally was our waitress and she was friendly, attentive, and provided the best experience ever.
Thank you Hula Grill, for exemplifying the best of dining experiences in our community!

The restaurant overall was incredible. We sat on the deck overlooking the beach. Our server was great. I believe his name was Luke. He was knowledgeable about the menu and did a great job of making us feel welcome. The food was very flavorful and priced right.

We were celebrating the last night of our honeymoon. We would highly recommend this restaurant!

This place is great, good food and a great view, good service. It is above Duke's which they own, but here is the problem...Duke's has live music which if it was Hawaiian would be great...but the screeching, out of key woman fronting the loud band destroys any romantic interlude you might be expecting...sad as this is a fabulous place.

Amazing seafood omelette. I have been there twice for it and will probably go back one more time before we leave. Only ones in town offering a seafood omelette. The best thing I’ve eaten since I’ve been here.

Outstanding in every way! Top notch service, friendly and helpful staff, and excellent food! I got the fish special which was wonderful, and my husband got the steak which was to die for good! Perfect location beach side, above Dukes.....not a better place to eat in Waikiki.

The ocean view can’t be beaten!
The service was very nice and cordial.
As for the food, it’s generic Waikiki pre-cooked, reheated/re-fried stuff. Nothing to brag about.
That’s OK. We didn’t go there (or anywhere in Waikiki) for the fine dining.
Wish the restauranteurs cater less to “touristy in/out, thank you for coming, but now go” crowd, and bring in more quality food. That’s why local people like us typically don’t dine in Waikiki.
