    First time dining at Hualalai Grille and it was was everything I expected and more. Hayley greeted and welcomed us, and Oli was friendly, personable, attentive and overall terrific. Menu was delicious. We ordered the tasty and fresh Beet Salad, Wedge Salad, perfectly grilled 16 oz Rib Eye, delicious Macaroni & Cheese, Brussels Sprouts, Roasted Spring Vegetables, Spicy Fried Rice, and Strawberry Shortcake. We enjoyed every flavor and bite. Highly recommend Hualalai Grille.

    Four Seasonsホテルの敷地内にあるレストラン。 雰囲気も良く、ドリンク、前菜、メイン、デザートととても美味しく頂きました。 メインのステーキは焼き加減もベストで、チミチュリソースも滑らかで美味しいです。レストラン特性のステーキソースは、BBQよりですが、バランス良くお肉にマッチ! サイドのMac n Cheeseもマッシュポテトも2名で十分なサイズ。 夫は、今までで食べたMac n Cheeseで一番美味しいと喜んでました! スパイシーチャーハンは少し辛い程度で、辛いのが苦手な人でも食べれます。 予約はサンセット前がベストです。

    Outstanding service from the bar to the table and out the door. Jeff the bartender improvised on out silly requests and may have invented the next great island drink! Vahn our waiter made us feel comfortable and welcomed us with so much Aloha! We traveled from the otherside of the island for a special dinner and we were not disappointed.🤯

    If you’re looking for steak, this is the best place on the island. If you’re looking for a vegan meal, why would you go to a steakhouse? Beet salad was excellent. Can’t beat the view or the ambiance.

    Great restraint if you’re looking for an upscale steak house. The food was absolutely phenomenal and the ambiance is incredible. One down side, this is an open air restraint so when my wife and I visited, it was very windy. Just a heads up for those of you wanting to visit this establishment during windy weather. Otherwise, they didn’t skip a beat. Very well worth the price.

    We ordered a hamburger for $34 USD and although the hamburger was very good all there was in the plate was the hamburger, nothing else! I assumed there’s be French fries at the very least for that price So essentially I paid $40cdn for a hamburger!!! The Caesar salad for $20usd was just very ordinary chopped romaine with croutons?!!!! Way overpriced for the presentation and quantity

    The Grille is the best and perhaps only steak house on the West side of the Big Island. The food ingredients and steaks are outstanding. However, the service is not up to the usual Four Seasons standards. The prices are expensive and there is no kama'aina discounts offered.

    Outstanding is an understatement…… Our anniversary this year could not have been better. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. Fresh pretzel rolls and salted butter were brought immediately with fresh water to our table facing the 18th green. A generous portion of Caesar salad was plenty to split, and then a short time later the main courses arrived. The bone in pork chop was simply the best I have ever had. Period. My wife had a nice filet mignon. Both were cooked to perfection. The German chocolate cake was just exquisite and again easily split by two people. Not an every day restaurant but my goodness it felt great to splurge. You deserve it! Try Hualalai Grille for your next dinner outing and you will be very glad you did….

    We like to enjoy a nice dinner out once or twice every month. This month it’s Four Seasons Hualalai Grill and La Bourgogne. FSHG has outdoor seating, cocktails, nice meal choice and everything is delivered with their top tier service. Was the lobster bacon fried rice side dish $20? Yes. Was it worth every penny? Absolutely! Perfect filet mignon with my favorite girl, mahalo!

    The fresh Mai Tais and bar service were excellent (Thank you Jeff). The seating on the Lanai and overall ambiance was lovely. The wine list was thoughtfully curated. The menu is extensive and overall the items ordered were thoughtfully prepared and flavorful with the exception of Kobe ribeye - ordered medium rare but came to the table with a too-thick charred crust and a solid medium temp. I'm rarely so particular but I expected precision for the quality and price. Server was friendly - more personable and goofy than professional; by his own admission it was only his second day. Support staff were efficient and prompt. Overall it was a good experience.

    Best meal we had on the Big Island. The food and service was terrific. I had the 7 oz filet mignon with the half lobster tail. The steak was cooked to medium rare as I had ordered it. It's pricey but worth it.

    Great location, filet was perfectly cooked as was the chop. The fried rice was way too salty and poor white wine selection by the glass. We had to flag down one of the people clearing tables to get our check ring through after waiting 30 minutes for our waiter. We understand things are a little stacked up with Covid effecting the workforce but 30 min. Was too long to wait.
