What should have been a memorable last night in Waikiki, was ruined by a rude and arrogant wait staff. His impatience and treatment of our group of friends was something I haven't encountered before. His behaviour was a perfect example of how NOT to treat customers or clients and could have been filmed to use for training purposes. Deepest regret... More

I ate every bite of my delicious fish tacos. There was a lot of variety on the menu but when it came to drinks I had to have their Classic Mai Tai. While most restaurants and bars these days water down drinks so much that they are unrecognizable, this drink was full bodied and clearly I was getting what I... More

What a great breakfast place. It felt fancy but also laid back with unbelievable views right by the beach. We were a family of eight and they got us two huge tables but we decided to consolidate into one. Our waiter was great and the food was fabulous. Each dish was very very good and we all had a great... More

Great lunch spot. Seems to be way more options on the menu for breakfast/lunch than for dinner. The variety was able to accommodate 5 picky eaters with both traditional and specialty Hawaiian foods.

We enjoyed a Ohana style meal. We had excellent bread for dipping, appetizers, salad, and about 6 different dishes and then Hula Pie for dessert!! We were guests, so don't know the cost, but the service for our large group was excellent.

Hula grill is pricier than most restaurants in the vicinity, but it has gorgeous water views if you get a table on the patio. While paying for the view alone is worth it, when all was said and done, I was also thrilled with the food and service. The only disappointing experience of the evening was interacting with the host:... More

Macadamia nut encrusted Mahi Mahi was delicious. Fish and chips were great, too. We ate at the bar and bartenders had stellar service. One even did an amazing magic trick for our family. We still can't figure it out! Highly recommend this restaurant!

We had high hopes for the Hula Grill - sadly, we were disappointed. Menu was very confusing - you can see HOW the fish is prepared, but it doesn't list what fish is what. Same for vegetables. Entrees don't come with a vegetable-but vegetables, if ordered a la carte, are big enough to share. This confusion was complicated by our... More

Hard to find but worth the effort. Wonderful food with special extra touches, friendly, helpful staff and beautiful views. We have been there for the bar menu, breakfast, and also happy hour. Each time, when lines were long at other restaurants, we were able to get in with little or no wait.

Thank Luny3000
