“Nice Splurge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Great ambiance and view...a great spot to watch the sunset. Dinner and drinks come in at around 100$. Our nicest meal while in Waikiki.

“Best experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

One of the finest dining experiences ever. My party arrived 10 minutes early and we were called exactly on time. Seated by an attentive young man who placed our napkins on our laps. Server came immediately and took our drink orders and spent a lot of time going over the menu with us, explaining what each dish was and how it was prepared and served. Her knowledge and desire to please was unparalleled. I only regret that I do not remember her name. The food was outstanding. My friend picked up the check but from looking at the menu prices it was not overly expensive, especially given the quality of the experience. It was my last night on the island and was a perfect cap to the trip.

“Nice start to the day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

We stayed next door at the Moana Hotel but ate breakfast here at the Hula Grill 3 times during our stay! Had a papaya each time, the fruit plate once, oatmeal the second time and the banana/mac nut pancakes on our last visit. My husband had the fried rice fo' days, croissant french toast and an omelet. Food is solid, service friendly, coffee hot and the view cannot be beat! Loved the open air seating but it can get windy so be careful about asking to sit next to the railing!

“Nice view and banana pancakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

Nice view (rather limited view if your table isn't right at the railing) and banana pancakes. All I want for a Hawaiian breakfast are a ripe, sweet half of papaya and banana pancakes with lots of banana. The banana pancakes at Hula Grill were good, but the best we had in Hawaii were at Kountry Kitchen in Kapaa, Kauai (to die for!). Fill 'em up with mashed bananas!!

“Charming and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

Only dined there for breakfast, but found the staff ready with the coffee and a smile. Cooked to order breakfasts were delicious. Ask for a pineapple boat.
