We came for the bone in NY, both times they were out. My husband was settled to have the bone in rib eye as back up but they were out of that as well. Disappointed. Wouldn't have dined the second time if we knew they were out of the bone in options for my husband.

This restaurant located above the golf shop at the Four Seasons tends to get overlooked by the other 2 restaurants that are located on the beach. It's a mistake to overlook this really good dining option that has continued to improve over the past few years. Now serving beef sourced from a ranch in Montana the quality of the meat... More

Dinner was good, but service was really slow and not up to what you would expect from the Four Seasons.

We were here last year and came back. Nice outdoor sunset on the lanai. Caprese, Kona lobster salad good starters. (They also had large meaty oysters on the half shell from their own oyster farm onsite; we had them the next night at the hotel's beachfront Ulu Sushi Lounge.) Filet mignon and NY Strip nicely done. And the macadamia nut... More

Go hungry for steak...you can't miss with the New York, 12oz. The Sushi Stack will also get you started on the right foot.

Great steaks and meats, but they also feature excellent salads, appetizers and seafood specials. It is above the golf clubhouse and has a great view of both the course and the beach. Watch the sunset into the ocean.

Wasn't busy the night we went. Service fabulous. Prices normal for a high end steakhouse, so not a bad deal for the Four Seasons.

We shared the Chateau Briand for you, and they brought it to the table to showcase the preparation; it was fantastic. The quiet, the breeze, the sunset 9over trees, this is not on the beach) were all a great complement to the great wine list and fine dining atmosphere. Wait staff was attentive but unobtrusive. What a treat to walk... More

Incredible to travel to Hawaii and find beef even better than we have in Colorado! So fresh, everything is on point!

This is the 2nd time I've dined at the Hualalai Grille over the past 2 years, and the results were similar. Hualalai Grille is the steakhouse on the Four Seasons Hualalai. I just wish the quality of food and service at the Grille matched that of the rest of the resort. One would think that given the quality of the... More
