    A place that is known for amazing pacific rim food, tried to do a Thanksgiving version, and it was a flop. Eat there on normal nights, but never on holidays where they do a fixed menu.

    It is the worst experience we’ve had at Hoku. We have celebrated five out of six anniversaries at the restaurant. This was supposed to be a special meal prepared by a guest chef plus the Hilton resident chef. The lobster dish and the chicken dish were tasteless. The pasta dish was good. The cost of the special meal was $350 per person per alcohol. The piece of lobster was teeny. One of our chicken dishes was tough. It was a big disappointment.

    Hoku'sResponded 2 days agoAloha, David! We highly value your past patronage and are sincerely disappointed you did not have a better experience on your most recent visit. Appreciate the feedback. Mahalo for sharing!

    Hokus always has the greatest service ! Attentive, well thought out, pleasant, professional, impeccable! The quality of food was excellent. The seafood was very fresh. The sheer quantity of food was large. Maybe too large? Had to doggy bag the extras. Tables are nicely spaced . Our booth was very nice . Overall experience was over the top

    Overall our experience was ok. The food was good and expensive, to be expected, but I was disappointed with the lack of ability to accommodate allergies to the same quality of service that my partner received for his meal. When I called in advance and again when we were sat at our table asking about allergy accommodation, I was assured by the servers that I could "order whatever you like and we'll make it work!" However, instead, I was advised not to order any of the selections I made, and had to get my second or third choice for every course. The only starter I could eat was the salad. Similarly, at the end of the meal, I could not eat any of the desserts and could only have a sorbet which was likely not from their kitchen as it's not on their menu at all. Lastly, I was here celebrating my anniversary. The server brought out a macaroon and gave a bit of a speech about how they'd normally offer 2, but because I can't have one, there was only one for my partner. Overall I didn't feel very special or accommodated for this dinner which ended up costing me $500, and would choose elsewhere for a special occasion in the future. Also, the coffee after your meal is not complimentary, it's $18.

    Something made my throat swell up and itchy. It was $470 for two people and definitely not worth the experience. I was trying to propose to my girlfriend here and i had to wait till else left. When I order something off the menu, the last thing I wanna hear them says this is our take on ravioli if you look it has an appearance of a ravioli…

    We were at Hoku's for a Teikhoku brunch to celebrate my husband's birthday. Everything was perfect from start to finish! The patrons dining were all very quiet and not loud and rowdy like how some weekend brunches end up. We had a nice corner table on the far end of the restaurant with views of the pool, lagoon and the ocean. The portions were very generous, so much so that we had lots to take home, as did most other tables. The chef accommodated my food allergies and made fantastic substitutions for me which I very much enjoyed and am very thankful for. Our server was fantastic and timed everything nicely. He gave us more time to enjoy the mains as we were very satisfied after having the appetizers. The meal was priced very well. My only recommendation is to decrease the portion sizes so that there's less wastage for those that don't like to eat leftovers. A beautiful restaurant with fantastic staff - even the chef greeted us as we left the restaurant. Thank you for making the birthday brunch a very memorable one!

    Hoku'sResponded on October 27, 2022Aloha, Mandy! Pleased that you and your family had a grand experience at Hoku's. Mahalo for the feedback. Of course, we are happy to pack up those leftovers for a tasty treat later.

    I've been trying many high-end restaurants, but it was the first time feeling the food was not worth it at all. Paid around 600 bucks total and feel like I just wasted the money. Salad→ it's ok Ravioli→too much tomato/cucumber flavors (especially the jellies) Califlowers→it's ok Tako→Good (spicy a bit) Steak→Not worth for extra 80 bucks. Short Rib→Very good Desserts→The coconut cake doesn't match with the course dishes. It is too heavy for after eating those foods. The chocolate cake with ice cream looks pretty. It was very sad because the atmosphere and service were fantastic.

    We had the 4 course tasting menu. They would not pair wines, so we created our own by the glass pairing. We chose the Foie to start, cauliflower second, short rib as main, and coulant for dessert. Foie was delicious. Cauliflower was very good but needed seasoning on the cauliflower couscous. Short rib was prepared perfectly, however the barley risotto needed seasoning. The space is voluminous creating a din of conversations with music barely heard in the background.

    My husband and I went here for my birthday. It was our first vacation in 25 years so we really wanted it to be special. Hoku’s helped with that. The staff were kind and welcoming. The food was honestly the most delicious I’ve ever had. Ever. A special treat was brought out for my birthday, which was so lovely. It was something I’ll never forget. I loved getting to try new things, and we felt so well cared-for. We had the four course tasting menu. I tried the duck, which was so so good. The pineapple upside-down cake was as beyond what I could have imagined. It was all good, honestly, and the word ‘good’ doesn’t quite cut it but I can’t imagine anything coming close to describing what a delicious experience this was. Also, the restaurant is gorgeous. The lighting is amazing. The whole atmosphere took my breath away. I’d love to go back some day. I am so thankful!

    Hoku'sResponded on October 3, 2022Aloha! So honored to have hosted your long-awaited vacation. Pleased you had a grand experience. We hope you are able to work periodic vacations into your schedule. Mahalo!

    We were welcomed to a table with a beautiful view of the ocean. Multiple brunch courses were prepared for us and presented exquisitely. We started with fresh juices and guava mimosas. The fresh fruit and pancakes were amazing as was the salmon benedict atop a delicious cheddar biscuit. We enjoyed a selection of sashimi, sushi and a crispy rice roll filled with poke. Again, we were served butter fish and prime rib as we had enjoyed the evening prior. Dessert was a trio of chocolate mouse cake, mango tapioca pudding and (in our opinion) the best bite was the bread pudding paired with a beautiful white tea.
