Wonderful views, great menu with fresh fish. Special was monchong prepared two ways. Celebrated a birthday. Highly recommended.
The food was amazing. The market fish was so delicate and delicious. Dessert was a banana bread pudding with vanilla ice cream and a caramel drizzle that was just fantastic.
Beautiful setting, good service, good food. Very pricey.
Excellent food & view - my favorite place on Kauai
After many visits to Kauai, we have finally found a truly excellent fine dining experience! This on top of the fact that most every restaurant in Hawaii is short staffed and booked solid for weeks due to COVID.
Absolutely everything was outstanding about our visit from the locally produced menu items to the service and craft cocktails. We feel fortunate our first restaurant choices were booked and thanks to Open Table we found Hualani’s; a hidden gem that likely will not be a secret for long!
Outstanding views. Service was excellent. Lots of things to do while waiting on food. Don't miss the opportunity for dinner here when weather is good. Book ahead.
Beautiful outdoor restaurant with views of the ocean that is breathtaking! Wonderful lunch experience. Food was quite exceptional as well. Particularly the lunch special which was fried chicken thighs with a side of purple potato salad. Also the Ahi Poke was soft and buttery packed with flavor!
Will definitely come back again!
The setting is so gorgeous and peaceful. Our seating was at an outside table overlooking the ocean. There was a huge umbrella that provided plenty of shade without obstructing the beautiful view. The food was incredible. Definitely recommend the Chile Fried Chicken daily special. The menu seems small, but they more than make up for it with the amazing flavors of the dishes they serve.
The restaurant was beautiful however the wait staff was clearly over worked—frequently forgetting drinks. Steak came VERY rare. Over priced for quality of experience
Beautiful location but the food was extremely overpriced for what it was. Wasn’t impressed for a $250+ meal unfortunately.
Amazing ambiance, great food and great service!
Mediocre food. Great ambiance.
Great food and great service
Our server Eddie was outstanding. The food was very good.
The view and setting were very peaceful and serene until four 30 year old women (already tipsy) came along having a bottle of wine served to them. They proceeded to LOUDLY play the bean bag game in between us and the gorgeous view. They would scream and yell whenever they made a point...but nit with us.
So for the last 30 minutes of our otherwise amazing lunch, we were inundated with 4 women making spectacles of themselves.
I really think there could/should be a better place for this activity rather than right in the middle of our view!!! Please rethink this decision.
Day trip to Kauai.
A treat to be savored. Friendly, efficient, caring staff. Delicious taro buns with Bulgogi beef sliders. Incredibly beautiful ocean views.
Setting was gorgeous, staff amazing and food and drinks excellent! Thank you to Jay, our server and mixmaster, and the hostess (Chellanie??) with the beautiful eyes and great suggestions. Best fish and chips we’ve ever had! (Only on Friday’s. 😩)
Absolutely gorgeous setting with delicious food. We loved it!
Our server last night- Danielle- was amazing!!!
The whole experience was great, from the moment we were greeted to the moment we were done with our lunch. The staff was friendly, the views were spectacular and the food was outstanding. Great place to go for a special occasion. We celebrated our son’s birthday and it was perfect.
My husband and I tried this restaurant as a new experience. Every thing was great! Hopefully we will be able to return to try lunch.
The 4 of us were grateful for the table at the edge of the dining room, almost outside yet protected from the threatening rain. What a stunning view!
Each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. My husband and I shared the special local whole snapper (ehu) which was prepared perfectly: lightly breaded, crispy on the Outside, tender inside. Our son loved the Opah dish and his friend raved about the garden vegetable zoodle entree.
We enjoyed the abundant, delectable cocktails that were enhanced by garden herbs.
Absolutely excellent in every way possible. We are so happy we found this gem while out walking one morning. We keep returning. It’s our latest favorite restaurant on Kauai. I wasn’t sure which icon for noise level meant “ nice and quiet and perfect level when there is live music” but that’s how we’d rate it.
Really enjoyed lunch. Perfect setting, beautiful view, superb service. We will be back.
Great service and great food.
Beautiful setting, lovely server. Limited menu as compared with previous menus.
The food, service and surroundings are amazing! Totally would recommend
Food quality, flavor, presentation, and service/staff were all very good. We went there for dinner and lunch. We found Hualani's to be very relaxing and had one of the most interesting , scenic views on the island, south of Princeville. You can dine while watching ships and boats come and go in the harbor and planes flying in to the airport in the distance. Yet it was very serene and surprisingly quiet when we dined in April.
Hualani is not known for it's good food....the ambiance is so very worth the effort. Spectacular views.
Thanks for taking such good care of our staff on Administrative Professionals Day!
Free valet parking; incredible ocean view; open air dining; staff followed CDC protocols; high quality service and food! Had The Farm to Table fixed menu, all of which was delicious! Want to go back and try the Chicken and Bread Pudding!
Beautiful views with great food
Beautiful views and delicious food. Poke bowl is the best around.
The portions were very small. The spaghetti squash was disappointing in size and taste.
The banana bread pudding was ridiculously small. We asked to split a portion and I think the kitchen staff was embarrassed by the size that would be divided in half so they brought 2 servings (were served in small teacup cups).
We decided to try Hualani’s for the first time when a friend came to Kauai to visit us. We were blown away! The ambiance is beautiful and the food was phenomenal! The sashimi appetizer was one of the best I have EVER had and the farmer’s salad was fresh and delicious. They happened to have a special fish dish the night we went, which was so good I cannot express it in words. I would highly recommend dining here if you have the chance. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but it’s worth every penny!
Salad Portions very small
Music too loud where we sat
Beautiful views and food was excellent. It’s a bit pricey but worth it.
The restaurant was difficult to find for us and when we did find it we were late, in fact they had stop taking dinners orders. Despite this they accepted us. We ordered quickly and it was no doubt the best meal we had in Kauai! The fish was delicate and delicious. Steak was cooked perfectly and was tender. The chicken was well seasoned and flavorful. Everything was delicious and the service was professional and courteous. Thank you for all you did to accept us and feed us a wonderfully flavored meal!
The setting was beautiful. Looking out over the ocean and seeing the lighthouse. The menu was a fixed menu, unbeknownst to us. It was BBQ night. The main meal was mediocre. The ribs (2) were very good. The brisket was fatty. The Mac and cheese was SO dry and lacked flavor. The beans and sausage were ok. Dessert was ok...nothing spectacular. Our server was very good, but food needs improvement.
Aloha Pat, Mahalo for your feedback and I have shared it with the culinary team. That is certainly not the experience we strive to provide but we appreciate you letting us know so we can refocus the team. If you would be interested in dining with us again please contact me so my staff and I can show you a meal you will remember for all the right reasons. Mahalo, Michael A Young Resort Manager
Great tasty drinks! Ocean 11 was my fave drink! The drinks had a good amount of alcohol yet wasn’t too much so it got you a good buzz without being too strong!! Food was super yummy and the service was excellent!! Views were amazing! Totally recommend! It’s a bit complicated to get there but once you’re there it’s worth it!!
