    My wife and I had a wonderful evening. We were looking for a reliable place with a great view and very good food. Hula Grill really delivered. We had some “fancy” food but didn’t have any better in our entire stay. The service was excellent and the server made some great suggestions. I had the macadamia crusted mahi and my wife had the seafood chowder.

    Unfortunately, the food did not live up to expectations. Nice restaurant in a great position, however, the chicken was way over-cooked, portions were small, and the menu descriptions of two of the mains did not accurately reflect what was served, (i.e., missing items). The staff were friendly, and kindly comped the chicken and threw in a Hula Pie (which was amazing), but overall, a disappointment.

    We had a six hour layover at Honolulu Airport and we wanted to go eat lunch on the beach. I randomly chose Hula Grill for its location. What an amazing brunch we had! Peanut butter bacon french toast was a wonderful combination of flavors and the seafood omelet was chock full of lobster, shrimp and crab, not token amounts as usually happens with expensive ingredients. Our table had a view of Diamond Head and the maitre d’ when she seated us recommended we sit side by side so we both had a view of it. Overlooking the great people watching of Waikiki Beach. Excellent service from waitress Ari, personable, efficient, charming. The whole experience was just wonderful. It was my birthday and the restaurant brought us a complimentary hula pie which was a nice surprise. Two thumbs way up.

    We were lucky enough to be seated at a table outside on the deck, overlooking Waikiki Beach just after sunset. Absolutely beautiful. The service was great, and our meals were perfect. Quite a treat for us dollar-wise but worth it.

    My family and I had balcony seats and we were able to enjoy live music. The service was top notch. My son and I have severe dairy/nut allergy and the waitress made sure the chef knew of this. The rib eye is made with a dairy rub and the chef cooked a dairy free steak with a side of chimichurri and steamed veggies. The rib eye melted in my mouth. So delicious and safe to eat! Thankful for restaurants who take food allergies seriously because it can be deadly. I will definitely be back!

    I had such a wonderful experience at Hula Grill! I had a beautiful view of the ocean and palm trees, a kind and responsive waiter (Paco!) and hostess, and delicious food. I had the guava bbq chicken and grilled zucchini as well as a piece of their famous Hula Pie! I also had a yummy Hula-rita served in a tiki glass! So festive and with awesome Hawaiian vibes! 👍

    The evening special was a combo of swordfish and mahi mahi. The swordfish was great, the mahi mahi tasted and smelled very fishy. By contrast my husband had the crab topped macadamia crusted mahi mahi and it tasted delicate and no fishy tase or smell. Mostly tourist trap… very commercial food.
