Amazing dinner, outstanding service, and great cocktails. Will definitely be back. Thank you!!!
Wonderful service food and location.
Love this restaurant so much, great view, great service, just a wonderful restaurant. We went twice during our visit to the Big Island and can't say enough about the service, especially Ms. Judy, what a wonderful person. We will def. be back soon on out next Hawaii vacation. Mahalo
Wonderful server (Donna). Beautiful sunset but rather warm since torches are used for light. Highly recommend the scallop crudo. Easily the best dish we had during the entire trip. Charcuterie also good but would’ve liked some cheese. Bread was terrific as well. Other dishes were fine.
Excellent dinner, service was outstanding, beautiful restaurant overlooking the ocean, will definitely return
Everything was spectacular! We balked at the $48 entrees, but after the first bite we rolled our eyes and said it was the best prepared fish we’d ever had. Absolutely delicious! The staff was very friendly, the service impeccable and the outdoor seating fabulous. We highly recommend it.
The Ahi was really delicious! The service was amazing! We were very well cared for in every way
We shared the Whole Branzino.... Delicious!
Just an absolute beautiful place for a sunset dinner with great (gourmet) food preparations and exceptional service!
Best meal we had on the island. We never ate at the same place twice. Excellent restaurant and atmosphere. Judith made our dinner special. Mahalo.
Perfect sunset dinner and cocktails. A beautiful relaxed dining experience right on the beach. Martinis and tropical fruit drinks while watching an unbelievable sunset. Our server Judy was a joy and made our night extra special. The appetizers salads and the main courses were delicious. I had scallops and my husband had the venison pasta specialty. Both were wonderful. We were celebrating a Birthday and were treated very well. Would recommend and we will def. be back soon.
We had a friend who referred us to your restaurant and more specifically to ask for Elizabeth as our server. I have to say that was some of the best advice we have ever received. We also got menu suggestions and everything was beyond our expectations!
The poquillo peppers were my favorite item, and we could have had an additional serving each.The flavor combination was unusual and outstanding for the overall flavor profile. I would never imagine mango and peppers together but that was part of the surprise.
I also had the venison pasta which I ordered by recommendation from the same friend. This was an unusual choice for me as I do not eat game of any kind, but the additional flavor of orange and perhaps cinnamon put it over the top.
Now on to Elizabeth: She is delightful and refreshingly enthusiastic about life, wine and your menu. It was a joy to have her company as we dined, and the table
Next to ours was also enjoying her outstanding service. The
Evening was altogether perfect. Many grateful thanks.
Very good seafood. Mashed potatoes were room temperature. Bench seating was a little bit uncomfortable, but the location is spectacular
The food was outstanding and our server,Judy, is excellent. You can't beat the view. It all adds up to a great experience.
Our server was excellent! Is always a good spot for food and nice view, etc, but she made it special.
Beautiful dinner and location!
Meridia at Hapuna Beach couldn't be any more picturesque located right above the sand! The ambiance of the restaurant and ease of reservation are great as well. We have celebrated a few birthdays and anniversaries here and keep coming back.
Our last visit was a bit less spectacular due to the slowness of service especially from the bar. This may have been an isolated issue but is still worth docking one star.
What a dream. You are lucky if you can dine here, at least once.
The staff is amazing, we had Judy, her level of excellence was beyond measure. Felt like we were home.
If outdoor seating is available, do request! Loved the Poquillos, and the steak kebabs.
Wonderful meal. Great place to see the sun set. One of the best combination dinner and sunset events on the Big Island. Fantastic management staff.
We had had dinner at Meridia a few nights earlier and enjoyed our dinners very much. We weren’t as hungry this time but we’re eager to have their delicious Greek salad again. Paired it with a couple flatbreads and we were happy and well satisfied. Beautiful setting and attentive staff make Meridia a new favorite spot for us.
The ocean view is beautiful! Get there in time to watch the sunset. We enjoyed the Greek salad, as well as the sea bass and mahi-mahi. Good service. We’ll be back.
Judy was ours waitress , immediately were felt like we knew Judy as a friend and sister, she was professional and she made us feel very comfortable, you easily see that she loved her job , we are coming back because of Judy.
Aloha, Thank you so much for your kind note about Judy. We will make sure she hears about your wonderful experience with her. We look forward to your return!
Three things make a great meal; The setting, the food, and the service. Meridia hits a triple play. Gorgeous location on the beach and the restaurant itself is beautifully designed. The food is inspired: We weren't sure if Mediterranean food made sense in Hawaii, but it does: LIght, flavorful Mediterranean recipes, made with local ingredients--it's genius! You know a serious chef is working here. We weren't too hungry, so we each enjoyed the Kombucha Squash Soup, and then split the Caprese salad, with local tomatoes & herbs, and milky burrata, and the lightest, freshest, non-greasiest Frito Misto we've ever had. We had a coupon for a free dessert, so opted for the churros. These were as good as any we'd had in Spain...but the hot Kona Chocolate for dipping made it even better. But the highlight was our server Elizabeth. She was an absolute delight. Professional yet warm, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the food (and our food choices) and a delightful human being! (She even had the pastry chef draw out "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate on the dessert plate when we casually mentioned ours had been the day before. ) Elizabeth added that special something to a spectacular meal. I hope she sees this review!
Aloha Leslie, Wow, thank you for such an incredible review of your experience with us. We will be sure to pass along your note to Elizabeth. I hope we can welcome you back to Meridia again soon. Mahalo!
Lovely outdoor dining. We got there after sundown so I'm not sure if you can see the water from the terrace seating or not. (I think so.)
Great menu that is Mediterranean fare but with local ingredients (fish, vegetables.)
Everything we had was executed beautifully!
This was one of our nicer and better dinners that we enjoyed while on our 10 day Hawaiian vacation...even better than what we had at Manta (Mauna Kea) and Mina Fish House (Four Seasons Ko Olina).
We eat at Meridia regularly (we live in the area) and we have never been disappointed. I have been a Director of Food & Beverage for 24 years, so it's not easy to impress me, but this restaurant pass all the tests with flying colors. Great and unique dishes that you will not find anywhere else on the island, and a very attentive service. Highly recommended!
Aloha! Thank you so much for your kind note. It's wonderful to hear such incredible feedback from a loyal guest such as yourself. We'll see you again soon for your next visit!
Wonderful attentive staff. Great food and in an amazing location. Highly recommend to everyone. A treat.
Delicious food! Great service! The view of the beach, sunset, so lovely!! I would definitely go back again and next time stay at the resort.
The view was great, the service was outstanding, the cocktails were delicious and the food was tasty.
Aloha! Thank you so much for your review. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us at Meridia. We hope to welcome you back again soon.
Our first visit to Meridia was last December, when it was so windy that there was no outdoor seating, which is a shame in Hawaii. This time, we had a table at the outer edge of the seating area and had a wonderful view of the sunset. Our server was a delight, and the entire staff was very concerned about my food allergies and trying to figure out how best to accommodate them (I told them that I wasn't so sensitive with most things that I wasn't concerned about cross contamination on prep surfaces, etc., and that made it easier). There was actually a group of six or seven from the kitchen having a consultation about it. I rarely see first-hand that kind of attention to my issues. The dinner itself was just a smidgen below my top rating, but it was probably more what I ordered than how well it was prepared. Sometimes when you try something new or different, it just doesn't match what you expected. But it wasn't a flaw, by any means, and my partner enjoyed his meal tremendously. We'd certainly go back the next time we're on the Big Island.
Exceptional service and food. The vegetable polenta dish was delicious. My husband had the lamb and was very happy with it. Great service and ambience. We will definitely be back!
Aloha Laura, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your experience at Meridia. We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed the polenta and the lamb! We're excited to welcome you back again soon.
Portion size of the appetizers was less than expected for the price. The charcuterie was the first I’ve ever had with no cheese options. Given the Jamon serrano , a nice manchego would be nice. The paella was excellent the shrimp included were some of the best I’ve ever tasted.
Aloha Manny, Thank you so much for your feedback. We're so sorry to hear that you were disappointed in the portion size for the appetizers, but very much appreciate your recommendation for adding a cheese option to the charcuterie. We're very happy to hear that you enjoyed the paella. We hope to welcome you back to Meridia again in the near future. Mahalo!
The atmosphere and ambiance are superb. Our waitress Elizabeth was very accommodating and very sweet. The food was good, not outstanding but it did not deter from the overall experience. Great place for a special celebration.
Beautiful view and excellent food. The shrimp were amazing. Enjoyed it thoroughly.
Excellent dinner and sunset. I think the dishes in the restaurant are favourable for Japanese.
It’s convenient as it’s a fine-dining place inside the hotel, the view is great especially during the evening time where you can see the golden sunset while enjoying the food. However the food is not that great and the pricing is definitely expensive.
Felt a little rushed. Had our reservation at 8pm felt like they were trying to get us out asap. They visited the table often which was great but they kept trying to refill our champagne glasses and take away plates even before we were finished. There was still food on the characuterie board and plates and they kept asking if we were done. I dont think it was intentional - i think they were trying to give good service but we wanted to relax and celebrate.
Service was flawless. Food was excellent- peppers and cáptese for starters. Entrees- pappardelle, short rib, branzino. 10x better than browns or any other spot we tried during our stay.
Wonderful service and views. Food is very good.
Wonderful chef. Food was delicious. We ate there 3 out of 4 nights during our stay. And had the fish special each time. Same kind of fish (snapper) But was fixed differently every night and delicious.
The server Elizabeth was delightful. Happy, helpful, friendly and great service! She even sent home cream for our in room coffee for the next morning.
Mathew, the manager was great as well as Sharon, the hostess. Made us feel right at home and special.
We don’t usually like restaurants located in hotels. But this was an exception for sure.
Definitely look forward to returning here again and again.
Awesome view and excellent service!
