The Hula Grill is a really cool place esp if you’re near the outside seating. The inside area was nice too, with live music. The service is really good. The wait staff is courteous and attentive. The menu has such promise and the food looks great too!! But...the dishes we had were very bland. We had the coconut calamari to start out and it looked so delicious but was just average with little taste. I had to dip it in the suave just for it to have some flavor. I ordered the ramen soup, which was decent. It definitely had a lot in it and the base of the soup was pretty good. My wife ordered the crusted white fish and it was so bland and boring she couldn’t eat all of it. We also ordered a side of grilled zucchini...terribly bland with no flavor.

The place is in a perfect spot and has a great view. If just ok for the price you pay but hey it’s Hawaii, everything is going to be pricey. You just want it to be really good. Oh well. Dukes is better.

夕方になりギリギリの予約にも関わらず、席はテラスのサンセットが見える席!とてもラッキーでした。ハワイらしい雰囲気の中、食事が楽しめます。4歳の娘も大興奮!子供にも優しく、キッズメニューやぬりえなどを用意して下さりありがたかったです。キッズメニューのハンバーガーはやっぱり大きいです。食べ切れませんでした…。ハッピーアワーの利用でお値打ちに食事が出来ました。味は普通ですが…。

Right on the beach - great place to watch the sun set with beautiful palm trees in the background. Appetizers and fish dishes were excellent. Great lava flow and happy hour drinks. Very accomodating to adjust the fish and preparations in the specials for several in our party.

We had to wait 15 minuets past our reservations time and were told they didn’t have enough waiters . Fish was over cooked. I have eaten at this restaurant in the past and had good service and good food. I this was my first visit I would never go back but I will give it another try.

Went there because we knew someone's relative etc. What a good surprise! The food was excellent. Music a little bit loud, but we didn't care because we liked the alfresco dining . Recommend the salads and the shrimp appetizer.

We had a table on the balcony which overlooks the Dukes bar downstairs. Every Sunday Dukes has live music which is lots of fun. The Hula Grill food is always excellent, service with lots of smiles and we love the noisy and fun ambiance.

ワイキキ滞在の最後の夜にハワイらしいお店に行こうと家族で伺いました。
小さい子供にクレヨンと塗り絵をくださり、心遣いが嬉しかったです。
ハワイアンミュージックが流れる中、ワイキキビーチに沈む夕日…最後の夜に相応しい雰囲気でした!
お食事はシーフード中心で、結構スパイシーな物やハーブを使ったものが多かったので、子供連れの方は注意です。
我が家の子供は全く食べませんでしたが、塗り絵をしたり、オープンエアの雰囲気を楽しみ、ぐずる事はありませんでした。
お料理よりも景色やハワイらしい雰囲気で大満足でした。
夕日を見ながらお食事したい方にはおすすめです。

Good but very expensive. Hubby's rib eye was $59 and came with no veggie or salad, just in a tiny bed of fingerling potatoes. My fish dish was better value and included a mound of kale with roasted pine nuts that was scrummy. He did get a nice birthday dessert on the house though.

Fantastic food with a waterfront view and really excellent and friendly service. Poke tacos were great, loved the Lillekoi Coconut spritzer, and the fish special was so good we cancelled our dinner reservations at another restauant to come back a second time. The food and service were just as good the following night. Highly recommended!

One of my favorite places to eat along Waikiki. I had brought friends from Boston for their first visit to Hawaii and it was a wonderful meal at Hula Grill!!! The music from Dukes below was a tad bit loud when we were first seated. But we did not like that detract from us and join our evening

We were in Waikiki and looking for something to celebrate the last night of our Hawaiian vacation, while still sticking with the mantra that we don't eat at chains while on vacation. We came across this restaurant online, and it fit the bill perfectly. The outdoor seating was fantastic, and the food was too. Perfect meal.

Service staff not clean and they are very slow. One friend got running eggs for an "over-easy" order. Pancakes are too dry. Dirty tables are cleaned up quickly---it takes more than 15 minutes. The view over the ocean, beach and Diamond Head is great.
