Mac and Cheese to Die for

The restaurant is comfortable and well appointed. The menu is classical steak and seafood. The side dishes are appropriate, but the Mac and Cheese (with bacon) was to die for. I think next time I might just have the Mac and Cheese, two orders. I had a teriyaki steak dish with lobster fried rice... read more

I had dinner twice here during my stay at the Four Seasons; they serve mostly steaks which are excellent but I'd suggest widening their menu to include more seafood to pair;

We had an excellent family dinner here after settling on this as a "new" place to try on the Big Island. The emphasis clearly is on meat - but there were some nice fish options as well (as well as great salad and vegetable side options). The preparations were excellent. Everyone was delighted with what they ordered - and there... More

We had a fantastic dinner here! The restaurant is above the pro shop. Try to sit on the outside-a little quieter and cooler if there is no breeze. Service by Robbie was excellent. Food was outstanding. Mahi mahi specials and filets were hits! Wine list extensive but very expensive-nothing under $60 Overall very good evening!

Really nice meal here. We had steak and lobster and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere overlooking the golf course.

The server, for some reason (maybe because Indian "statistically" under tip), hate us and ignored us almost entirely. And a manager looking lady interrupted us by talking to server when we are ordering food. This is unacceptable. Food is good but no way "150 per person" good. By the way, people are busying networking here, not particurlarly good for farmilies.

This restaurant is located on the grounds of the Four Seasons Hualalai, which has four restaurants to choose from. It is the only restaurant that is not ocean front, so not much of a view. The night we were there , it was very hot and humid inside the restaurant and that had a negative effect on our dining enjoyment.... More

The Hualalai Grill features itself as the steakhouse at the Four Seasons, but like the title of this review says, it takes the words "steakhouse" and "grille" to a new level. Exquisite lamb, unbelievable steaks - and they're impossibly matched (or maybe even edged out by) a side of mac and cheese with bacon. The Grille is on the mauka... More

Wonderful seafood. Fresh with laid back service. Great after a round of golf or tennis match. Recommend anything with lobster!

We did not eat here, just had drinks while watching the sun set. The bartenders were so friendly and obviously love their job. Wine reasonably priced, watched golfers finish their rounds while the sunset view was lovely. Will return.
