Trellised seating allows for al fresco dining, and outdoor lounge spaces set the stage for the perfect beachfront cocktail. Chef de Cuisine Nick Mastrascusa – formerly of 57 restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel New York – oversees a menu featuring California cuisine with Italian influences.All wines on the wine list are offered by the glass, half carafe and full bottle. Cocktails feature tropical ingredients, fresh fruit and original combinations, and include the Beach Tree Smash, which mixes pear and lime, and Tom's Pink Shirt, which combines guava liqueur, fresh Waimea strawberries and house-made sweet and sour made from agave nectar and fresh lime juice.

We had dinner here al fresco. We did not have reservations but the teenager hostess was most gracious and "975 Brian" our waiter could not have been nicer. "We want to split a salad?" No problem! He even divided it for us in two plates. The Piña Coladas were the best we had during 8 days at the big island.... More

I am a bit of a food snob, and my husband is a down-home cooking kind of man. It is hard to find a restaurant that pleases us both- he doesn't like "froo-froo" restaurants with small portions, and I like big flavors and taste. We were both thrilled with our dishes at Beach Tree. He ordered the prosciutto pizza and... More

Watching the sunset, beautiful bottle of wine. I ordered the swordfish which was the best I have ever had. My husband had Ravioli he loved. Chef is from Italy and his bread, pasta are to die for. Wish I could get his pizza where I live. Oh and the Bons Bons for desert are ridiculous! My favorite dinner on the... More

This restaurant has the menu with the most non-seafood dishes on it at the resort. If you do not like seafood, you will love this place. They do have it, but not to the extent of 'ULU. This is also the least formal of the restaurants. There is an active bar scene between the seating and the water. It can... More

First of all, this place has a great view. Then, after eating various meals there throughout our stay, we found the food to be consistently good. I had one pasta (lobster pasta) dish that was good, but not great, but everything else - pizza, burger, sandwiches, etc was all surprisingly good. Great option at the resort for a quick meal... More

I didn't see the sunset here, maybe it would have been better. It was very humid and since it's all outdoor dinning it can be uncomfortable. The service was okay if you like having multiple waiters. They were very respective that was appreciated. As for the food, we had pizza and a burger desert, side dish of mushrooms. It was... More

Food was so-so and not what I would expect from the Four Seasons. The view wasn't great and was extremely loud. Not the greatest ambiance. Very over priced for what you get in terms of service and experience and food.

This is by far one of the best meals I have ever had....if you have read my previous reviews, I am very skeptical of hotel restaurants but this one will not disappoint. Its located at the four seasons and it is right on the beach. All tables have a great view of the sunset and the food is phenomenal, pricey... More

I absolutely loved this restaurant. Yes, it is expensive -- dude, it's the Four Seasons! But the quality of the food and presentation is worth every penny. And the dishes we had (with one exception) were large enough to share. When you sit down, you are greeted with delicious bread and this wonderful tomato pesto that I appreciated because it... More

Located at the Four Seasons Hualalai, this is a fabulous restaurant serving a great lunch menu with a large array of options. The staff is great and very knowledgeable about the menu offerings. The view from the restaurant is fantastic in an atmosphere that is casual yet delectable. A must stop whether you are staying at the resort or not.
