we just had brunch at Hoku's and for the money, variety, and quality it is still the best on Oahu! In lieu of the omelet station, they will take your omelet order and deliver it to your table.

We stayed at the Kahala and ate at Hoku's on our last night there. The atmosphere was relaxing, the service wonderful and the food outstanding. We were not at all rushed and the courses were nicely paced. We both had the 3 course fixed-price selection with the tenderloin. It was wonderful, tender and perfectly prepared. By the way, they serve... More

This is an experience for those who like to splurge and enjoy food prepared to Perfection! Wait staff was extremely knowledgeable in what types of drinks and foods were being offered. Was asked if the coffee they were serving for brunch was 100% Kona and our question was answered quickly with a nice formulation of about 60% pure. Traditional offerings... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants for special occassions. The fried whole fish is excellent- crispy, juicy and fresh. Desserts are well worth the calories. We ordered the Chef's Tasting Menu- each dish was simply delightful. The stunning ocean views and very attentive wait staff made our dinner memorable.

Although there are over four-hundred restaurants on the island of Oahu, "Hoku's" id perhaps one of the best on he island for providing fine dining. It is somewhat pricey; however you get what you pay for! My wife and I have celebrated several special occasions; with dinner at this establishment, and never been disappointed!

Had our 4th dinner here. Fantastic food, great service. We actually just ordered from the Appetizer menu to try all sorts of different things, and our waiter set it up like a degustation. It's on the pricey side but well worth it, and remember guys have to wear trousers !

We booked the restaurant direct as we were staying in house!!! Main request being we didn't want a booth. Hence, on arrival the host took us to a booth, when I mentioned that we asked for no booth, he walked off and left my daughter and I standing on the raised platform, which was slightly embarrassing in front of other...
