the food was the best we had on the Island, the Seafood trio is an experience in itself, service completes the ambiance along with the location!!
A must try no matter where you are in the island!

One of the best hotel restaurants on the Big Island and we have tried them all over the last few years.

Very slow service. Oysters (at 36/doz!) were dry and came 20 minutes after my salad, when it was supposed to come at same time for my wife. Her fish was terribly undercooked, while mine was overcooked. Waiter offered no apology or consideration on bill for poor food or service. Avoid this place! Wayyyy overpriced as well.

We dine here at least once every time we come to the big island. The setting is still spectacular, the service is very warm; however the food has become very average. For the same price you get a similar setting and far better food and service at the Fairmont 2 miles south of here.

We have visited the Kona coast for over 7 years now and also eaten at pretty well every restaurant from Kailua to Mauna Kea. The dining experience seems to be a work in progress at the various restaurants with quality of course very dependent on the excutive chef. Chefs come and go with some places falling from grace and others providing a pleasant surprise.
The Coast Grille is one such place in the latter category where the menu is excellent.
However firstly I would award the Coast Grille 4.5 stars somewhat more than the 4 indicated above. The name is not representative of a fine dining establishment---something more Hawaiian would be appropriate. The building itself in full daylight, which is when many people would arrive, is very monolithic and massive almost mausoleumish. However as the sunset fades and the house lights come on it acquires a more appealing appearance.
That said the seating is excellent on the crescent shaped outer perimeter and the view of the setting sun magnificent.
The food selection is excellent and the quality similarly so. Of the three different meals selected all were found to be very tasty and excellently presented. No complaints at all.
The lamb dish is one of the best I have ever had, while the snapper and trio of fish were equally well received.
In all a very good dining experience. Loretta our server was delightful and made our evening fun and entertaining.
This is a good place to have dinner and well worthy of 4.5 stars------if the building had been more to my liking I would have made this a five star occasion.
