Great Hawaiian vibe, right over Waikiki beach. Expensive, but what isn’t in Hawaii? Hula Pie is a must!

Requested seating by the water and they were able to accommodate. Waiter and staff was attentive and friendly. Food arrived pretty quickly and we enjoyed every plate. Will definitely revisit to try other dishes.

The food was great! I really enjoyed my seafood omelet it was stuffed with lots of shrimp and Lobster. And was served with a wonderful hollandaise sauce. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend eating at the Hula Grill.

Portions are huge if you don’t eat a horse at every meal then I would suggest splitting something.

We came to Hula Grill on our first night in Waikiki. Wow! The view we had was amazing...right on the outside perimeter of the restaurant. We ordered the seafood chowder and the crab topped macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi. I wish I could eat that everyday!! My husband has a pea allergy, so we were unsure of the long beans in the chowder, but the waitress assured that the bowl is made per person, so the beans could be omitted. What a relief. The fish was delectable and fresh!

Our server was admittedly new; however no 1) he should had introduced himself as being in training 2) he should have a shadow ensuring proper service delivery 3) he should have assisted us with the bar menu, navigating champagne and other upsells 4) my Mai Tai was supposed to be 'fresh juices' but there was absolutely no pulp or anything fresh about it 5) after we finished our drinks our check was dropped without request. Another opportunity for us to order another drink.

In general, the food quality was so-so. The place is run by millennials, with no concept of service.

We had an outstanding experience at Hula Grill! My husband and I were celebrating our 15th anniversary and they made it so special for us. The staff and food were amazing. Plus, the sunset view was just gorgeous. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

My family went for lunch. Coconut shrimp for appetizer was the bomb. Split fish tacos and fish and chips. Both were really good. Nice view of ocean and servers very friendly. Will definitely be back.
