    Father's Day BBQ buffet they called it. What a joke! No salads, no choice meets, only some overcooked sausage and ribs, some jerk chicken, the roasted pork they had was bone dry, stinky (wild pig?) and the plates were coffee cup saucers! The servers (those dishing the dry pork on the coffee cup sized plates )were rude and the table server forgot about us until the bill time: we basically had to wait for the ice to melt in the glasses, in order to drink some water beyond the original glass. Sure, she filled them after we paid the bill, too little too late... Will not come back

    We enjoyed dining at Halani, but it is expensive. We had great service from Kelly and a beautiful view. The hummus appetizer was fine, but rather small for $21. Our son loved his Waygu steak and my husband loved the local fresh catch. I had the fish tacos, and they were fine, but nothing special for $34. Our other son said that the pizza crust was soggy, so not recommended. The peanut butter jelly mousse dessert was great. It was a treat, and a special dining experience for Father’s Day.

    Ashley and her team waiting on our table deserve 10 stars. Everything was perfect! The scallops and chicken wings appetizers were fabulous. Two of us had the fish tacos and the other two had the fresh mahi - delicious! We thought the portions were spot on! My wife and I will definitely be patronizing this awesome restaurant and wouldn’t hesitate to take visitors here again. Atmosphere is absolutely beautiful!

    Everything from ambiance, food, drinks and service were amazing! Our servers Angie and Randall we’re consitant with checking in, clearing empty glasses and taking care of all of our needs and request. Angie even offered pictures with the sunset! Both managers Jeric and Kealen constantly checked in on every course and made great recommendations. The recommended special (ono, scallops and risotto) was so good. The cheesecake for dessert was so light and a perfect to end the evening. My friends and I had such a wonderful dining experience.. Thank you Halani!!

    My wife and I live on the Big Island and have dined at Halani several times. Typically, our dining experience there is excellent. But, last night our experience was absolutely awful! Even the best restaurants occasionally misfire. The mistakes began with our waiter delivering the wrong drinks to us. Next, while waiting for our drinks to eat our appetizer, our dinner plates were delivered. I told the runner that we had not even eaten our appetizer yet and he returned the plates to the kitchen. For dinner, I ordered the seafood risotto special. Although flavorful, the risotto was like soup at the bottom of my plate; it obviously was not prepared properly. Also, when I got the bill, this risotto special was priced at $70! Typically, dinner plates at Halani are in the $30-$40 range. I firmly believe that the waiter has an obligation to inform the customer of the special prices, if these prices are in excess of what would be typical. Sadly, our waiter never mentioned the special prices to us before we ordered.

    Went at sunset , pretty skies but lots of flies and small gnats that kept going in my salmon entree. Food is as above average and reasonable. Although chili salmon was a bit smaller than other entrees, it was just right for me.

    The Ha Bar and Grill located at Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection, Kohala Coast was stunning. The restaurant was very spacious so although it was full of customers for dinner, it didn't feel crowded and packed. The menu and food were very good, and the presentation was modern cuisine. The service was excellent, friendly and engaged.

    We were originally out at a table immediately next to the music so it was a little loud (although the music was great). Once we moved we had a wonderful rest of our evening. Topped off by a beautiful sunset!

    It was for my 21st birthday and it was AMAZING! The ambiance is literally breathtaking and the open end of the restaurant is such a cool thing I’ve personally never seen done like that. Also, for COVID conscious people, the open air did make me feel more comfortable for sure. The cocktails were super tasty, REALLY recommend the ube, pineapple, and rum blended drink, that was my favorite one by far. It was one of those cant-taste-the-liquor type cocktails which I’m all for cause I hate a strong alcohol taste. I had the Wagyu skirt and it was probably the most tender and flavorful steak I’ve had, and I’m a steak lunatic. I’m so bummed I don’t remember our servers name but she was so attentive and sweet and definitely added to the visit as well! Definitely worth the visit!
