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 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...More

Response from Bill Q | Reviewed this property |
Hualalai grill for most part is far more expensive... $55 for a small steak. Offerings are much different.... Steak vs fish (at mama's). Personally think mama's is so much better than hualalai
