The Hualalai Grill offer very welcoming outside seating, with nice views of the trees, golf course and evening or night sky. Indoor seating is in a pleasant, open room. Service is attentive and very friendly. The menu is typical of a high end steak house, with matching prices, which means that sides are extra and steaks are pricey, but nothing... More

Our food was quite good and the atmosphere lovely, but our server (Michael) started off on the wrong foot and just got worse through the course of the meal. A comped dessert and coffee wouldn't make up for it, although we did appreciate it. The meal began well enough but he took way longer than he should have to come... More

Steak is the main emphasis here but there are options such as fish, past and vegetarian options as well. There are ample portions, well-prepared with a range of sauces if desired. Good beer and wine offerings.

When you stay at the Four Seasons there is no need to leave resort. Several restaurants on property and this is one of the best. I had a filet mignon one o the best I have ever had. Sides were delicious too. Garlic shrimp a good option if you do not want steak. Ambiance very nice. Resort casual attire is... More

Wonderful. Steak house fare. Prices were typcial...overall great experience. It was a touch hot as it is open air, and we did have an issue with some flys, but overall wonderful.

We went to the Hualalai Grille during our honeymoon for a date night. The setting is awesome and the food was really good! We of course got steaks and they were delicious. The drinks were great also and the service was amazing. It was a little expensive but not more than we expected on this trip.

We came for the bone in NY, both times they were out. My husband was settled to have the bone in rib eye as back up but they were out of that as well. Disappointed. Wouldn't have dined the second time if we knew they were out of the bone in options for my husband.
