    Upstairs from Duke’s, I’d rank this as a subpar experience, unfortunately. We’ve always enjoyed ourselves before but this time the salad and bread seemed tasteless, the fish (stripe marlin) was dry —& overall an unremarkable dinner. I doubt we’ll return.

    The location and view can’t be beat. Our server was sweet and attentive. The lilikoi margarita was delicious. Only issue was the food… my husband’s T-bone was no better than a $12 steak from the supermarket. It was barely a half inch thick (more like a breakfast steak from our local diner). The steak was $45. My mahi mahi had no flavor. It was like it hadn’t been seasoned. Total bill came to $195 for two of us. We had one drink each, one app each, no coffee or dessert. We get that you are paying for the view, and it was spectacular, but there is no excuse for a chef who doesn’t know how to select quality meat or season the food. Kind of a bummer.

    Hula Grill is ALWAYS my first dining stop when arriving on Waikiki. The food, service, and atmosphere are great, the Mai Tai’s are even better, but just be aware that appetizers are now pupus, which means one is designed to accommodate 4 diners…

    Open table reservation request was made months ago. And not honored. Eventually they moved us only after complaining. Prime Rib ordered medium burnt. Should have suggested changing order.

    Dinner was below average for price. Won Ton appetizer was good but nothing special. The seafood chowder and Fresh Catch with noodles was very average. Neither of us finished our meals because quite frankly we just did not enjoy it. Sauce was not developed..did you use a premade sauce? Would not recommend. Service was good but rushed. Had our dinner as we finished our appetizer…bill came before we even finished dinner and asked about dessert!

    I booked this for my birthday dinner and wrote that in the notes before i even made the reservation. I spoke with Taylor at the front desk and reminded her again. She was very accommodating and even checked in with us after she saw we didn’t get greeted for 20 min. Our server was rose, she tried keeping up with her tables but since we are in the industry we understand that it’s busy and especially on a Friday night. We waited for our drinks for 15 minutes and got our appetizers before our drinks. The food was mediocre and i asked for salt and pepper before our food was delivered but she brought the condiments after we had already finished eating. She brought us the wrong check and after waiting 10 more minutes to get our actual bill, we got our to go boxes and i asked for a to go bag but she never came back. Overall the service was terrible, the food was ok like i mentioned before and will not be returning.

    We ate here for both lunch and dinner and both meals were very good. Portions were generous and the service was good. Price was typical of a resort hotel restaurant. Both of our visits here, we were seated overlooking the pool and beach. Nice, tropical view with the ocean and palm trees.

    Great ambiance, food was good but on the pricey side for what you get. Nice views at sunset, great service. I had the mahi mahi and it was yummy but could some veggies on the side with the rice. I would come back again though. Worth the experience though. When in Hawaii!

    Heavy menu. Crab wonton was gob of hot cream cheese faint with crab, the sauce was same flavor as dip given with bread so taste was dulled. Sauce should be a different flavor. Pastas were heavy, taste nothing special at all. Sharing and had to ask for soy sauce, salt and pepper (for the pastas!), and serving spoons. Pina colada tasted like a pineapple milkshake.

    30th Anniversary showed up 15 min early hostess has her elbow up on the side of the podium and barley ex knowledges us. Tells us stand off to the side and will be with you soon. In the mean time has 4 different walk up groups come a in and seats them right away. Then I had to ask when our table was ready after 15min and she says when I get someone up here to seat you. When she does she takes 2 other walk in groups ahead of us. When we finally did her seated surfer was great and food great.!front of the house just seamed like they didn’t care and very unprofessional

    Grabbed lunch here last minute. Food was good but a bit slow to get seated, take our orders, for the food to come out etc. Great table with nice view of the beach!! A couple of items came out were cold and there was no issue in having this little issue organised and it ultimately, it was all delicious! All in all a nice experience but the experience we had at Duke’s the evening before was better (couldn’t help comparing!)
