    My wife and I are full-time Big Island residents and have dinner at Halani often. Halani 's food creativity, presentation and taste are always outstanding as is their attentive service. There is live music nightly. Halani seating is open-air and the restaurant is located ocean-front, affording beautiful sunset views.

    Form the moment we stepped on the property, we were created with aloha. Our waitperson, Kira, is absolutely amazing. They were friendly, personable, kind and attentive. The service was impeccable. The cheeseburger was one of the best I’ve had (get the added avocado!) My guest had the catch-of-the-day with truffle oil: They loved it. Highly recommend the excursion to Mauna Lani hotel and restaurants.

    HaLani for dinner is amazing! The ambience is gorgeous. Go at or after sunset and watch the afterglow colors light up the sky. The servers are friendly & attentive. The food is scrumptious! The live music is fun and festive. We will definitely go back again.

    The food was great as was the service. Prices are a little high, but it’s an upscale resort on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, so it comes with the territory. We’ll be back for sure!

    This mostly outdoor restaurant has amazing ambience and ocean view. We sat at the Bar for cold drinks then sat at a table around the Bar for dinner. The staff is friendly and attentive from start to finish. The menu is farm to table mixed with seafood and land. Cold mixed green salad was delicious and fresh, the Wagyu steak with frites was cooked perfectly medium sliced and served hot. The fish tacos were two large tacos filled with fish, slaw and salsa on the side served with chips. And to top it off a slice of grandmas chocolate cake and house maid vanilla bean ice cream. Prices are a bit high but the live music and outdoor ambience is worth a pricier meal. Will definitely return here.

    Great spot, I’ll give them that. Beautiful design. I ordered the daily catch, $54. It was a kanpachi in coconut crust and while the crust was cooked/browned, the fish was not. At all. Unannounced. And the fish had its skin. As I was carving the fish off its skin I mentioned this conundrum to the waitress (who finally came by…) who did nothing about it (or at least nobody addressed it). I also got a taste of my wine but had to remind them that I actually ordered a glass. The sommelier came over and described the wine so quickly he didn’t even have the time to look in my eyes. Seems this restaurant is starting out and not quite there yet. Growing pains galore!

    A fantastic setting for a fun family dinner. Our waiter, Cullen, was beyond good and the food excellent although over priced - my fish of the day was about as small a piece as you could imagine for a main course and $55 seemed a lot for a small piece of fish with fried rice - tasty enough though!

    We enjoyed eating here a few times on our trip. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The waffles, omelets and pastries were all delicious. The tuna burger, hamburger, tomato and burrata salad were excellent. Dinner entrees included the fresh catch of the day, salmon, and various pizzas. The chocolate cake, cheesecake. And sticky toffee pudding were all excellent desserts. It was our favorite restaurant with consistently great food and friendly servers.

    We have been to the Big Island many times but this was our first time dinning here. It is pricey but the ambiance is fantastic. I got the short rib and it was outstanding. Cocktails were some of the best we have had here. We are from San Diego so we are not easily impressed. This restaurant ticked all the boxes.

    Amazing dinner at sunset with a perfect view and impeccable service. Everything we ordered was very good. Some simple things not to be missed- the sweet Hawaiian rolls, the tomato and burrata salad, and the home made ice cream. In between that we had the catch of the day, a waygu steak, and a pizza.
