Best dinner we had in Hawai’i. Live music was a little loud but the music was good so can’t really complain! Food and service was really great! Will visit again when we return.

Nice views of the ocean and very good service. Food was ok, but nothing exceptional. We ordered the fish tacos and they were solid.

We had a lovely dining experience here many years ago, and decided to make reservations for our daughter’s 19th birthday dinner. Sadly, it is not the same place as it was years ago. It is quite dirty and more of a casual dining restaurant, rather than the nice restaurant we remembered years ago. I ordered one of the specials, Prime Rib. It wasn’t cooked as I ordered and the sauce on top of it was like gray sludge. I don’t think we will be returning.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Hula Grill. The macadamia nut shrimp appetizer was amazing and the calamari steak appetizer very tender. We also enjoyed their bread (included with meal) with the sweet chilly dipping sauce. Somehow we saved room for the special main course which was fresh ono and mahi-mahi. Everything was delicious, service and ambiance superb. We highly recommend.

Food and everything was good just disappointed we didn’t get a rail side table since we’d requested one when booking over a month in advance.

This is my first time in Hawaii and my beautiful family and I ate at many places ,but Hula Grill might be the best one.We had a nice waitress. The food was amazing especially the poke tacos and the sashimi was awesome.
I highly recommend this restaurant if you visit Oahu.

My macdamia nut crusted mahi mahi with crab on top was delicious. My wife’s ravioli was good, but she said it needed more sauce and less mushrooms on top. Setting in the corner with the ocean and live music below was great.

We’ve eaten at the Hula Grill multiple times every year - by ourselves - as well as bringing mainland visitors. It never gets old. Wonderful job - our compliments to their entire staff

My husband and I both had the Crab Topped Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi and it was really delicious. The portions were generous as well. We saved room for dessert and had the Hula Pie which is a favorite of ours. Our server, Todd, was awesome and was always checking with to be sure that we had everything that we needed. And to top it off, we had a great view of the ocean with the sun setting.

Chowder (as a meal) was very good. The fried wonton appetizer was a little too thick and crispy, but it was good. I was too exhausted from travel to fully appreciate the experience but I’d definitely go back.

Birthday which I put on my reservation but no one, sadly, acknowledged

The hostess sat me ahead of my friend but then a subsequent hostess told her I wasn’t at Hula Grille, I must have gone to “Dukes”
She told her no, I had texted that I was seated.
Hostess looked at computer, said I wasn’t there must be at Dukes!
But offered my friend ( the one who’s birthday we were celebrating, to go ahead and look around to see if she could find me!!!!!!!!

Same hostess then lost our parking tickets then gave them to a different table.

Gee, maybe I should have given 2 stars.
Our waitress was lovely and attentive.

We attempted to dine at Hula grill for my wife’s 50th birthday, and requested a table w/ a window view in advance. Upon arrival, we were seated at a booth inside the dining room with an obstructed view of a large pole instead. Not quite the romantic meal we had hoped for. Disappointing.

Great service and views. Drinks were delicious.
Food was good though not something nod say was a highlight of the place.
The atmosphere and setting is what you should
Come here for.
Food highlights:
Fries, fried wonton appetizers, desserts,
Perhaps it’s what we ordered but it was a bit Underwhelming.

Servers were excellent and extremely attentive.
I would return for a drink and appetizers
