We had dinner at Ola in our second night in Hawaii. The prices were very high, which is understandable for Hawaii but the food was bland and ok at best. The Salmon was not fully cooked, the gnocchi had no taste at all. We had a much better dinner at Lei Leis later in our visit and the cost was... More

Visited while we stayed at Turtle Bay Resort. Excellent service and food. Like it so much the 1st visit we went back again. If you are undecided in eating at Kula Grille or Ola just go on over to Ola. The Ola food was much better to us than Kula Grille.

We were promptly and politely greeted and escorted outside. Sand under our feet and a great view of the Pacific and beach visitors. Drinks were brought promptly. My husband had a cheeseburger, I had the wedge salad. Both were tasty and more than adequate to fill us both. Two soft drinks and aforementioned food items $37. The setting was worth... More

Ended here for lunch exploring the North shore. Has to wait even though it was prior to lunch rush and obvious empty tables. Once seated waitress was not very personable and very slow. After she ordered our wrong appetizer we waited for nearly 15 mins for her to return after asking for people and finally a mgr asked what was... More

My mother had to send her dish back twice. But the third time was a charm and the Mahi Mahi was absolutely delicious and tender. I had the garlic shrimp with quinoa and greens which was marvelous. My dad had the Ahi Poke bowl which was amazing. The waves were ginormous, the beach clean and inviting, and the service was... More

When you talk about beach seating this place leaves all others to shame. We literally had a table on the sand. Food was ok, but i would not call it spectacular. If you want to have lunch on the beach and are on the north shore of Oahu drop in here you will not be disapointed.

We went there for Thanksgiving dinner and was very displeased with the service, food and portions. It wasn't that busy and it took awhile for everything. When we ordered the dinner the server said it was huge portions and when we got them i asked where were the huge portions, for sure no doggie bag needed.It is on the beach... More

Took awhile to get our food and drinks weren't all that great. The food was good and couldn't beat the views. Nice atmosphere along with nice waiters.

This restaurant is the only independently operated one at the Turtle Bay Resort complex, and it shows. The food is excellent, although pricey, and service is great. Its location on the beach and resemblance to a beachside snack stand might fool you at first, but I recommend eating here rather than any of the restaurants in the hotel proper.

Amazing atmosphere right on the beach! We went early and only had to wait a few minutes. The host was very helpful, stashing our stroller in an out of the way spot for us. If you like edamame you have to get the roasted garlic edamame appetizer. It was amazing. My husband, who doesn't really like it, devoured what we... More
