We wanted a dinner date night out with fun drinks, great food, and a view of the sunset. Even though we didn’t get the seat we initially hoped to get, the one we received was even better and absolutely perfect. All of our orders were made super quickly even though it was a busy night. We had an amazing experience and will 100% go back.

Food was ok. Fish tacos were pretty bland and didn’t have much flavor. Nothing to write home about.

We absolutely love this place we eat here several times every time we visit Waikiki. We had breakfast here I was saddened to see that my favorite menu item, rice for days was no longer on the menu but when the waitress over heard us talking she said it would be no problem for the chef to prepare this for you, which made my day! The service and food always great!! Recommend reservations! Especially with COVID-19 and limited tables

mediocre food, watered down drinks and mediocre service. We specifically returned an $18 drink that was completely watered down and the waiter said nothing and still charged us. My husband informed him it was our anniversary and requested a dessert and we were just brought the check with no acknowledgement. Hulas is definitely not the place it is marketed as online. Not worth it.

Our last night in Waikiki we wanted a special waterfront meal and was the only time we dined out on our Oahu trip. Hulu Grill didn’t disappoint with gorgeous sunset beachfront views, excellent service and delicious food. Opentable makes it easy!

Outstanding service, amazing view, live music from Dukes below, delicious food and reasonable prices.... Hula Grill has it all! Shout out to Logan and Tim for service that went above and beyond. Also... whoever cooked our mouthwatering melt in your mouth fish... huge shout out to you too! Skip the dinner wait and make your reservations on Open Table ;)

In addition to the lovely ocean side the food and service were fantastic in this casual dining venue. The loco moco was elevated in this meat centric dish... kahlua pork , short rib , sausage and more made this dish spectacular. The fresh fish of the day, mahi mahi was moist and perfectly prepared. A must go in Waikiki

This was supposed to be our Valentine’s Day Dinner, and it was NOT what I expected. We’re locals who have been there many times and this was the worst experience we’ve had there.
I specifically requested an 8:15 reservation on the balcony over looking the banister, and we were NOT seated until 8:40 for our reservation and we were placed in the middle of the restaurant. Then we waited over 10 minutes for introductions and water to drink. Getting refills on our drinks was next to impossible. Once we were finally served drinks, we were not asked if we needed a refill until midway through our meal. We were NOT served complimentary bread until after our appetizer dishes were removed to make room for our main dish. In fact we had to request the bread after sitting at our table for over 30 mins.
The main meal it self was a “slider-sized” Mahi-Mahi for $39??? Seriously??? That was a complete ripoff and it was tough and overcooked. The rice served with it looked like it was scraped from the bottom of a rice cooker cause it was brown-charred rice and clumped together. All in all for a special occasion meal this was an EPIC FAIL and we will definitely consider alternatives for future special occasions.

The Hula Grille is doing a great job making patrons feel comfortable (service, social distancing, cleanliness) and they provide a wonderful experience in partnership with The Outrigger Duke's restaurant (shared music). The drinks were well made, the food was good; however, most items are fried or coated and minimal salad options (limited for gluten-free diners). It is a bit pricey for the offerings, but overall was a good experience given the ambiance. I would recommend but understanding the limited menu and value component.

We really enjoyed our night out at Hula Grill! The food was delicious, and the service was fantastic! We were also able to watch the band play below at Dukes, so Hula Grill has a similar atmosphere.
