    No different than dukes down below. Mai tai is average. Service average. Limited menu. Overpriced for chain restaurant food. Only good thing is the view if you get a balcony table.

    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.

    Food and cocktail drinks were decent but overtly overpriced for taste and observable quality. Ambiance was ok for a vacation or informal lunch or dinner. Prime location on Waikiki beach, thus explaining the high costs for beachfront views and lukewarm quality of service and food.

    I am not usually very critical of restaurants especially in this environment with labor issues since Covid. I have to express my disappointment, however, in the Hula Grill. The atmosphere and location were outstanding. I feel like the possibilities for this restaurant are endless. The hostess was very pleasant and did a great job, but that is where any positive experience ended. The service was very subpar. There were more employees at this restaurant then I have see at any other. To their credit it did appear that virtually all the employees were quite young and probably had little experience. At first we felt confident in the fact our service seems more experienced than the rest of the staff, but in actuality she seemed disinterested and very uncommitted. The entire staff seemed to be walking back and forth not really doing anything in particular, I guess "trying to look busy." When they were not doing that they would congregate in areas talking to each other laugh and joking. It really just seemed like they were not sure what they were to be doing and they were given no direction. We waited long periods of time for drinks, then to order. We may have even stayed for another drink to enjoy the scenery if anyone would have came to our table to ask. In the end we even had to flag down our servicer and ask for our check. Enough about the service. As far as the food was concerned it was ok at best. The menu is similar to Duke's which make sense as I am understand they are have the same owner and it is upstairs from Duke's. I can't speak for Duke's in Waikiki, but the food was not even close to being comparable with the Duke's on Kauai. Long story short the food was not good and was certainly not worth the price they charge. In closing I would just say I hope they can get their act together, but it has possibilities. Out of the 9 days we spent in Hawaii it was our worst restaurant experience. We would not return.

    We felt quite rushed to give up our table to the next reservation. We were there for 45 minutes at our table. It went by so quickly. For such an expensive meal with such a wonderful view, I wish we had more time and weren’t rushed. The waiter was very nice but we ordered quickly and ate quickly and felt like he was waiting for us to get the check so we did. All said and done we were in and out so quickly. I just wanted to sit there and enjoy.
