“Food was good, service was lacking!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

We ate there our last night of our stay with a group of friends. The service was definitely not up to the standards of Four Seasons. The waitress took forever to wait on our table, messed up our drink order, and then we waited another long period for her to take our food order. By the time we waited for our apps, we all decided to leave to head to another restaurant. When we finally had our food, it was good but the service was so poor we decided not to take our chances on another course.

“Good food in relaxed atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

We weren't staying at the Four Seasons but 5 of us went for an evening meal. The setting is magical being situated right on the beach which has floodlights lighting up the waves crashing on to the beach. Stunning.

The staff are amazing. Friendly, helpful, obliging, amazing!! Nothing was too much trouble and the attention paid to detail was excellent. The food was very good and when my squid ink risotto was accidentally dropped on the floor the staff were most apologetic and arranged for another dish very quickly. Oh dear, what a mess and a complete accident that could have happened anywhere. The whole episode was treated with utmost professionalism and we were compensated for the accident. Starters, mains and deserts were wonderful and cooked to perfection.

A very good and memorable meal.

“Relaxed FSH style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Cool little bar on Hualalai property. The most casual place to just grab a drink and catch the sunset.

“Beautiful Beach View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

If you are staying at the Four Seasons, you'll be eating here a lot. It's the only restaurant on the grounds open before 5 PM which kind of surprised us considering it's not a good place to eat in bad weather situations. The food, view, and service was always impeccable though.
