Have eat here 2x's 5 years apart, both times took 30 minutes plus to get a table, even though tables open. Seems they serve locals before "tourist"

We were surprised to read the sign on their front door that they serve breakfast too! Too bad we didn't now about that earlier in our vacation and we would have tried out their breakfast (since breakfast at our resort was an outrageous $30/person). We...More

Breakfast here was recommended by the concierge at our hotel, so we gave it a go. Bacon was the only decent thing about the breakfast, but how hard (really?) is it to stuff up bacon? Pancakes were flavourless and tough. Eggs had cheese in them...More

Since they opened we dined here on a regular basis, but no longer eat at Waikoloa Macaroni Grill - last two times this year did not live up to the price tag. The food is not consistent. I will say that dining in the bar...More

We have several meals at this location and enjoyed the food. The service was good as well. It was close to our hotel and easily accessable.

Nice portions. Lasagna and chicken parmesian were very good. Waitress very friendly. Went around 5pm and not many people were there yet. This made for a pleasant meal before we went to the visitor center at Mauna Kea.

We came for a late dinner (around 8ish) with two of us. We were seated immediately, and Kitty, our server, was fantastic. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced for the Big Island.

All I can say is that we were excited to have lunch here and we were let down pretty quick! We sat at least 10 minutes before anyone asked if we had been helped. Our waiter wasn't knowledgeable of gluten free dishes and had to...More

Hawaii and prices....Paradise has its price and you do have to pay to get food items to the Islands. That said, Romano's is good food and the price is cheaper than other restaurants. It is arguable not fine dining, but the... More
I was hoping to dine there for breakfast with friends that are visiting from Oahu. I cannot find any sort of breakfast menu on line. Am I missing something, or is this not available?

You don't bring your own wine, you have to BUY there and that depends on the type of wine you buy $30-to probably hundreds. They are priced the same as any other Macaroni Grill, it's a chain. It's reasonable. But nothing... More
