Went to celebrate birthday. Wait staff was attentive, friendly, and engaging, especially to my eight-year-old. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to celebrate on the North Shore.
Our waiter Joshua was very helpful and such a gentlemen .
Yes, it’s a little more for basic foods like flatbread and burgers...but you get the atmosphere, fancy drinks, good service. If you’re staying at turtle bay then it’s a respectful option.
Shrimps were good although the sauce on bottom of rice was too sweet.
Good friendly efficient service
We came here for easter dinner. Food was really good . Our waiter was really nice and awsome. We look forward to coming back next year.
Terrible food. Not farm to table as advertised
Great service. Was seated immediately. Service was excellent. Staff courteous and efficient.
Although there were mixed reviews we ate here. Huge mistake. Probably the worst meal ever in Hawaii
The starter a flatbread came after dinner, flatbread no not really . The crust was white dried out bad bread.
We didn’t like anything for a main, so we both ordered a salad. Both poorly presented on a too small plate, overflowing
With overly dress large piece of green, salad dressing oily with no flavor
We asked for fresh ground pepper, they don’t have, huh?...
I asked specifically how the portobello mushrooms were prepared, she said grilled, hardly
Soggy cold small bits of this. The other salad my husband added chicken too, very dried out
The food was awful. We didn’t finish them. The ambience if you want to use that phrase here,
Was coffee shop from the 1970’s.
Don’t go here , walk down the path to Roy’s
We ordered the crispy shrimp and they were delicious!!! Then we watched the beautiful sunset. Highly recommend!!
Although our waiter wasn't great; he lacked personality, wasn't friendly, and took forever to get us our orders, the meal itself was delicious. And, of course the view is unmatched. I will warn you that if you decide to dine outside you will hear kids (other diners) or the pool kids yelling down at the pool area. Inside may be a better choice if you want to relax and have it quieter.
Dry tastless. Mahe mahe. Chef tried to make it more palatable with to much sauce.
Food was okay, not great value for the cost. We got a mediocre table even though we had said it was a special occasion (one month anniversary). Whole experience was underwhelming.
Food was disappointing. The fish was overdone and chewy. We couldn't eat it.
After bringing this to the attention of the manager, there was a price adjustment
with one entree eliminated on the final check. Still, not worth the visit. Would have been better with take out from the lobby. The food is fresh and tasty and a fraction of the cost of the Kula Grille.
Great service, great food! Pretty view, they always seated us in the back corner.... and hostess puffed when we asked to sit by the window....
Wonderful dining at Turtle Bay for a special occasion or casual dining. The service was impeccable and Kelsea was exceptional at meeting our dining needs. The cocktails were divine and the desserts are a must try. Definitely worth a visit!
This place was great for our young Celiac daughter who is also a picky eater. They had a gluten-free hamburger bun and gluten-free flatbread, among other gf items that she would not eat... because she is a picky eater. Thank you for making our lives a little easier and having gluten-free options!
Slow service. Lamb so salty, we sent it back.
Fish curry was tasteless and was also sent back.
Ahi Tuna was ok, but not great.
Had better Poke from the supermarket.
They should have comped the whole meal, but only did not charge for the fish.
This spoiled our last evening on Oahu
Should have had white tablecloths on table for Valentines Day Buffett
The servers were very poorly trained. Otherwise a nice experience. Try to get an outdoor table for dinner. Our Open Table seating request was honored.
Awful best describes ones dining experience. I have eaten here before but obviously forgot how bad hotel dining can be. I rarely return an item but the baby back ribs were so dry , chewy and overlooked they were inedible. My next attempt chicken pot pie proved a bit better, but would not rank above two stars.
What amazes me is in spite of sub par reviews over the years management had done little to elevate the dining experience. It’s hard to point a finger at staff when so little is demanded by management.
Have accountants taken over everything.
We got there & immediately sat outside. We got to watch a beautiful sunset and listen to live music from the bar downstairs. The food was incredible, our server was great. We’re about to book our vday date there.
We went for New Years Eve supper. The regular menu was changed to a very average buffet which was massively overpriced. As a result the published menu was irrelevant which was a huge disappointment. Only about a half of the food offered was gluten free (not a choice but a necessity in my case). We had one plate of very ordinary mass produced food for $95.
Kula Grille has been a place that my husband and I always go to for our buffet breakfasts when we go to Turtle Bay. The buffet is pretty good! We also have had dinner which was also pretty good. The buffet for New Year's Eve was absolutely horrible! The price of $95 per person for substandard food was ridiculous!! The fish was dry, salads bland, roast beef dry, and desserts lackluster! For that price we could have gone to Roy's except it was a fixed price dinner and I'm vegetarian. I heard many people next to us also complaining! They should be ashamed of themselves for charging that amount of money and not providing the value of food for the price! This is coming from people who have been to Turtle Bay 5 times this year alone!!
Prices were for an high end restaurant but service and food quality were very ordinary.
Very dry fish
Made reservations on Christmas Day. Did not anticipate a buffet dinner. Overall food was ok. The one fish item on the buffet was dried and bland. The turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing were the best. Desserts except the malasadas were good. The malasadas came out raw (doughy) and it was sent back. Service was fine. Not sure if I would come back. We stayed in the area locally but if I were driving from the other side of the island, It would not be worth the trip. If I go back, I can try the menu.
Expected a better quality of food for a special Christmas Day Buffet. Although the food choices were adequate it was of mediocre quality. Unfortunately , we had seen the Christmas morning selection for an 11:00 and 12:30 seating and thought it would be same menu, which it was not. They ran out of several items, desserts, that we waited to get until the end of the meal. The setting is beautiful, the wait staff attentive and the noise level was acceptable. Overall, an okay meal but probably not worth the drive from Waikiki.
The catch of the day rocked, the crafted cocktails delivered, and our waiter, Jamie, made the evening memorable with his impeccable service!
Pork belly was uncooked and inedible.
Chicken pot pie was bland and tasteless.
Great (daytime) views, food and service. We were staying at Tirtle Bay for a week and ate 4 meals there
Service was great and quick. Food was fresh and tasted great. The pasta I ordered had great taste but the noodles were a little gummy but otherwise great.
Even with only half the tables filled, it was extremely noisy. Service was ok, not great. Food was decent but nothing was amazing. Overall, fine to eat at if you are staying at the resort, but not worth a special trip.
Fantastic all around
The dinner I had at Kula Grille was fabulous. It was the catch of the day, mahi mahi. Deliciously prepared and beautifully presented. Because of this dinner experience, I gave the breakfast buffet a try on a Saturday morning. Dinner was lovely, but the breakfast buffet was definitely NOT worth the price tag. The employees were all wonderful, but the offerings were not worth $31 plus tax and tip. Stick to lunch, dinner, or breakfast from the menu and skip the buffet.
Terrific location, fresh food, and attentive professional service.
Excellent food and service. Beautiful view. Highly recommend.
Not worth it. Food was subpar but expensive. The service was good, but so NOT worth it.
Chef James Aptkin did an excellent job on all the food items. So creative and delicious! Will definitely return again.
The food was great and the service was better. The view cannot be beat. The lobster bacon flatbread is a must!
