    Had a nice quick meal on 4th of July at 930pm. Waitress was great. Cocktails were good. Poke tacos enjoyable along with a salad. Didn’t love the crab wontons but they were 100% edible. Value is relative but we always can rely on Hulu grill for eats if we near by. Not a destination eatery but reliable. They gave us a nice desert for our anniversary which is always appreciated.

    25th Anniversary Violet was an extremely nice and knowledgeable server. A real pleasure. All was great except the ribeye steak. One of the worst I’ve eaten. Ambiance A, Service A, maybe a new cook? Thank you for a lovely night. It was 4th of July and the vibe was great!

    Had July 4th sunset reservations, seated along outside rail with beautiful view of beach. Live music from Dukes added to ambiance. JC our server was outstanding:just the right amount of attentiveness without being intrusive (truly a skill) especially as busy as it was over a holiday. The only slight mark was lady seating us was clearly in a bad mood but we didn’t take it personally and shrugged it off-especially as JC was so good. And the food was outstanding as well.

    Our first impressions was the 3 you g ladies at the counter yawning!! They did but greet us nicely at all. No smiles or welcome. Our waitress was lovely. The food was below average. Over cooked prawns dry fish and a stack of either mash or rice. Very awful! Won’t be rushing back

    Great location and a nice view of the beach if you’re lucky enough to get seated by the railing. Food was comparable to something like a Cheesecake Factory. It was extremely busy when we arrived, waited a couple minutes to be seated even with a reservation. Service was really slow. There was a band playing right below the deck which made it really noisy in addition to the crowd. Not the experience I was looking for.

    Jordan who took care of us was very professional, attentive and engaging. Awesome atmosphere with chill live music spilling over from Duke’s below. Really good food at a very reasonable price for a Waikiki Beach resort hotel. Preferred far above the Moana Surfrider Beach House restaurant next door.

    My wife and I had a fantastic brunch seated on the rail at this iconic beach front location. The Avocado Toast with Applewood bacon was excellent ! My wife lived her bacon, eggs and fresh fruit...as well as the POG mimosa. Bloody Mary's were quite good too...as was the Rumchata chilled desert drink. Our server, Luis, was outstanding...a definite visit at least once or twice on any future trips to Waikiki Beach!

    I was disappointed with Hula grill. While the view of the beach and Diamond head are great, it was loud, our waiter was hard to find, most of the wait staff were not in a good mood, and the food was disappointing (e.g., the Korean Fried Chicken was sweet and not at all spicy). There are definitely better options.

    We went for lunch for my husband’s birthday. Our server, Lea, was exceptional. She was knowledgeable, courteous and very responsive. The manager on duty, Luke,, also came by our table to ask how everything was going and to wish my husband Happy Birthday - that was a lovely touch. We were able to get a table on the rail which I had requested. The total experience was fun and memorable. We will absolutely come back soon!

    The coconut seafood chowder tasted weird. The wontons had a tad too much cream cheese. The calamari steak was awful. The mushroom ravioli was okay. Kind of tourist trappy. I prob wouldnt go back. Overrated.

    This was my second time coming here on vacation for dinner and I was excited to try their honey mac nut shrimp and their Mac and cheese but this time around the food lacked flavor/seasoning, the shrimp was okay not as amazing as I remember it but the Mac and cheese and mashed potatoes had no flavor whatsoever. My sister and I ate some of the food, paid and left. Overall the food was disappointing to say the least but service was good and oceanfront seating was nice.

    Based on photos we expected to be able to see the ocean. We weren’t really able to! All good, but maybe we should have changed our expectations. The food was subpar for the price. It would have been decent if we had just walked in unknowing what to expect. But we dressed up and overall the feel was pretty casual. Maybe that’s our fault! But I’d most likely recommend a different spot to friends! They gave us free ice cream cake, which was very kind of them!
