“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

The Hula Grill is a great restaurant. The service is outstanding our server was very attentive. The food was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant and suggest making reservations. Don't forget the coupon from the hotel, you will get a free desert.

“Overpriced, with poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

Stopped by after a day of shopping and the beach. It was a Sunday and they had brunch earlier. We just wanted a burger and drinks. The place was not busy, maybe 3 or 4 tables of people. We got seated outside as requested. The waitress was not really interested in serving us. We ordered a burger and drinks. It took a while to get anything, waitress never checked back, needed silverware and more water. We ended up getting another server to bring it. The burger was average, nothing special. Same for the drinks. For the amour we paid, I expect much more. I will not be going back.

“Hula grill delivers great and creative food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

We've waited about 40 minutes for a table outside ..and were positioned inside, so we complained and got a very nice table outside with a great view on the beach. The waiter at the bar recommended to go for the chef' special and he was right:a very nice combination of 2 fish (ono+?) with a lobster sauce on mashed potatoes. Very very good. Its not what you expect from atypical grill restaurant.

“Poor overall for the cost”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

Very disappointing given that our meal cost $175. The fish entree was too lemony the pork pot stickers were good- the one saving grace. The two fish meals we had were disappointing one in particular was very tasteless I had to tip chili water on the meal to give it some taste. The service was good but that does not make up for the poor food

“Great service, views of Waikiki”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

Watch out - for a lightweight, their mai tais pack a PUNCH!

My boyfriend and I came here near the end of our trip to Oahu to get the full "tourist" dinner experience - sipping mai tais under tiki torchlight by the beach - and we definitely got it. Their food was pretty good. I highly recommend trying the pineapple coconut creme brulee for dessert. The atmosphere is buzzing, the staff are very friendly, and the service was excellent.
