We chose this restaurant based on its wonderful reviews and proximity to our rental. The restaurant was wonderful, we were a bit late arriving and they held our table and we super accommodating. Everyone was able to order from the menu and each appetizer was great and each entree was just as delicious. We had a cake delivered and cut... More

My husband and I ate here primarily for the name, which he loved. And it turned out that the restaurant was great! The food was delicious, we shared the Ni'ihau lamb and mango sausage and it was amazing! Then we shared the Fish special, which was equally as delicious! It was great to taste unique items that we could not... More

I ate here twice - once with a large group and then again with just my husband. The service was great and the food was outstanding. The chef changes the menu each week to take advantage of fresh local ingredients. I thought $30 was a very fair price for the quality. It appeared that there is limited seating for large... More

I had theirs grill with two fishes and a skewer of shrimp. The rest had prime rib. I would go with fish. Excellent service and superb drink and... More

We are local people who celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary at Hukilau Lanai. The service was impeccable, catering to our every need. When my drink needed an adjustment, the wait person didn't waste a minute in correcting the error. Even the "supplemental wait people" were outstanding in their courteousness and efficient service. Both of us had identical meals, which included... More

Went for the view, good food and good value; got the latter two. They have a small bar with one man entertainment and decent wine by the glass with fair sizing and pricing. In the dining room we were fortunate to get outside seating, ask for this. The food was excellent. I had the meatloaf and my wife had the... More
