We had excellent service, the view is terrific and the restaurant is very attractive. Our food was very good and the portions large. Better than I expected from a hotel restaurant. We had a short wait for our table and were given a buzzer so we could wait in the Shorebird Bar and drink their excellent Mai Tai's and look at the ocean while we waited.

It's not super fancy, but you have a view of the ocean and I am always satisfied with my meals there. We had dinner in Nov and had some outstanding seafood dishes.

We ate here with some friends after striking out trying to make reservations elsewhere. I typically avoid hotel restaurants, but this stop wasn't typical. Prices are probably fair for beach front, but our food and service was really great. I had the seafood Lau Lau which was great. Everyone was pleased with their meal. Our waiter was playful but very courteous and attentive to our needs. Don't skip over this spot just because it's in a hotel!

The restaurant was beautiful and situated right on the beach. We had the Lau Lau for dinner. Hawaiian cuisine. It was great despite the look the green poi gives it. The had a lot of seafood dishes. After dinner, we stepped out on the beach and enjoyed the Friday night fireworks at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Our waiter (Josh?) was great and gave us a list of sites to see around the island. We saw them all and weren't disappointed by any of them. A great evening.

Booked a booth at the restaurant and it didn't disappoint.

Large table, great menu selection and would recommend the 1944 Mai tai made with a 10 year old rum.

Service was friendly, relaxed and discreet.

I had the lobster, scallop and shrimp dynamite followed by the blackened prime rib.

Would recommend this place :)
