Met a friend here to catch up over some beers and ended up having a great meal. I ordered the blackened ahi sandwich which was really fantastic, spicy and cooked very well. My only complaint was that I had some silver skin (?) or something that ran through a large part of the ahi which required me to tear apart... More

Had a great time in Hula's fun environment! The service was stellar and everyone was very friendly and chatty. I got the shrimp egg roles and OH MY GOSH! So delish! The drinks at Hula's are also spectacular! Great find! Totally recommend!

Looking for a late lunch before checking into hotel. If we lives in Phoenix this would be a regular stop. Everything was delicious from the drinks and food to the ambiance sitting at the bar. Go!!!

Hula's is a trendy restaurant with a great menu and very interesting food. It's a combination of Hawaiian meets the southwest. The downtown phoenix location has a wonderful patio and it's dog friendly. The servers will bring your dog a bowl of water or ice. The weekend brunch is as good as lunch and dinner. Try it once and you'll... More

This was our first time to Hula and most likely the last. The wait staff acted as though they were doing you a favor to take care of you...throughout the evening, not just during 'rush'. While the food tasted fine, it was not hot when served. Again, a tribute to the wait staff not promptly delivering the food when put-up.... More

We arrived at the bar at 5:15 p.m., were greeted by a hostess, told her we were going to sit at the bar, she smiled and said "okay", sat down at the bar, and waited for someone to acknowledge us. No one ever came over. There were no customers sitting at the bar, that should have been a sign. Four... More

We were looking for a new place to try with friends for food and happy hour a couple weeks ago. This place caught my eye on TA. The menu and drink selection looked good, so I suggested it to the group. No one had tried it before but everyone seemed to enjoy. I loved the abalone style calamari app. It... More

My wife and I wanted to find a Polynesian restaurant in the Phoenix area and decided to try this one. The scorpion bowl was excellent as was the atmosphere and the service. Most of the food was also good with the exception of the Hawaiian Macaroni salad, as it tasted like it was premade store bought. We were told that... More
