This is the third time I have gotten to have dinner on my birthday at Ul'u. The ambiance cannot be beat, the service is great and it's right on the beach where you can see whales breaching and breathtaking views of the Pacific. On clear days you can actually see Maui. It is my favorite restaurant ever.

This was by far the best meal we enjoyed in our two weeks on the Big Island. We started with champagne, so that always gets things off on a good foot. We tried the abalone, which was okay, but probably not worthy of a repeat. But the barbequed mahi was magnificent. Coconut creme brulee for dessert was very good. Hanna, our server, was timely with her service and has an engaging personality. Ask for her!

Not as good as I hoped. Lovely atmosphere.

The service was great and the view amazing. The food was good. I was disappointed that the fish I ordered had only a few pieces of carrot with it. It needed something else. Another person at the table ordered rice and that helped. There were no potato options.

Outstanding view.
Great service.
Very good meal.
Too dark at tables to easily read menu.
We miss the upstairs LavaLounge.

My wife and I had a wonderful dining experience at Ulu Ocean Grill during a recent trip to Hawaii. The salads and entrees were excellently prepared and we finished the dinner off with a raspberry - coconut souffle. Our waiter, Floyd, was outstanding, made several great recommendations and when the winds pick up a bit too much late in our dinner, he efficiently moved us to a table inside. While I had coffee with our dessert, Floyd brought my wife a glass of dry, crisp Riesling, compliments of him. Just a great dining experience all around. It was the best meal we had during our 10 day stay on the Big Island. We will be back again to Ulu Ocean Grill when we return to Hawaii next year.

This was one of the best meals we had on the big island. The view was incredible and hearing the waves crash on the rocks was the perfect backdrop to an incredible dinner. Table side ahi poke to start followed by the local snapper special. A nice bottle of wine paired well with both our dishes. Everything was perfect!

This is my first five star review top to bottom. I would never have guessed that with as expensive as the dinner was that I would also give it a five star on value. The truth is the food, ambiance and service were so over the top, it was worth every penny. The food obviously starts with amazing quality and is prepared with a finesse that produce exquisite flavors. The ambiance- well our table was 10 feet from breaking waves at sunset. And the service is intelligent, gracious and down right endearing. When on Island we live about 20 minutes away and we have decided this is going to be our local spot of choice.
