What a beautiful oceanfront restaurant done right. Incredible food and service. Our group had a fabulous evening from start to finish. Quite pricey but worth it. A must visit if on island as the Four Seasons does not disappoint.

Like a previous reviewer, we had our 40th anniversary dinner here. From the bag of hot breads brought to the table with butter sprinkled with Hawaiian red salt, we knew we were in for a wonderful experience. We shared first courses - the poke was as great as described, and such simple ingredients. I think I can replicate it fairly... More

We tried to go to the Beach Tree Restaurant for dinner but due to Spring Break they were only allowing hotel guests to dine. We decided to go to the Four Seasons on our way to Hilo and have breakfast instead. Friends had eaten their Meyer Lemon Ricotta Cheese pancakes and raved. Boy oh boy, they were right! They are...

Located oceanfront at the luxurious Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, this is one of the best...if not the best...restaurant on Hawaii Island. Our favorite spot is on the intimate southern lanai, though there's not a bad seat in the place. Be sure to spend time at the complimentary wine bar before being seated. The whole roasted Tai Snapper is just one... More

This review is a bit overdue, but I just couldn't let our experience go by without documenting it for potential future patrons, once it reopens again. We went to Hawaii for our first time (for two weeks) for our 40th wedding anniversary. And while we had many good meals there while on Oahu and the Big Island, we went here... More

We ate two meals during our stay at the Four Seasons earlier this month. Breakfast with a lovely seat right on the ocean. I got a bloody Mary that had the best presentation ever. With a skewer of tomato, onion and blue cheese olive, a black sea salt rimmed glass and a small tumbler of spices that you could add... More

A friend called the resort and they said this restaurant will be closed until mid-Nov. I'm looking forward to my first meal there in January.

This restaurant is currently closed. It is under construction for renovations as of mid-September 2012 for at least six weeks. I would recommend checking with the hotel for a re-opening date.

This review is a bit overdue. My dream came true to visit this resort the last day of June this past summer for the Saturday Sand and Stars buffet. Our reservation wasn't until 8pm, but I called back to see if they could accommodate us sooner because we would be driving back late on the dark 2 highway back to... More

We luckily managed to get a reservation with only one day's notice prior to our wedding day thanks to Julia, the Maitre d'. We eloped at Kukio beach, which is next to the Four Seasons Resort. Looking for the perfect romantic dinner with a beach view, Pahuia was the ultimate answer to our wishes. Everyone there made us feel comfortable... More
