We dined with friends which included two children. Our server Kevin was brilliant and very attentive. He managed the severe allergies one of the children had well and got everything spot on. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we dined outside balcony overlooking the beach. Even some fireworks out at sea which topped our evening. I( understand they also do Al la carte breakfast if you don't want Dukes buffet). Recommend for dinner but make a reservation well in advance.

There was a long wait (2 hrs again) at Dukes so we opted for the Hula Grill which is above Dukes. The food was good but they did not offer a salad bar like Dukes, thus the 3 star grade.

We ate breakfast here one morning while in Honolulu. We loved the outdoor seating with great views of the ocean. I ordered the crossaint French toast and it was the best I have even eaten. All the meals that came out of the kitchen looked equally as good. Eat here while you are in the area, you will not regret your decision.

While Dukes below was 1.5 hr wait, we walked in bar and scored a table and nice music! Appe's good, and the pie amazing! If you can score on oceanfront table, Diamond Head view incredible, right on the beach!

What could have been a bad experience was turned around by good management and service. Somehow there was a mixup with our reservation, and the hostess had given our requested patio table to another party. About 15 minutes later they were able to accommodate us at a table one row behind where we had requested (but it still had a lovely view). Management apologized and sent over two complimentary appetizers because of the mixup. It's amazing what a little goodwill offering can do to turn a bad situation around, and I wish more restaurants would do the same!

Our food and service was amazing. I had ahi seared rare, and it was perfection. My friend had a seafood special, which looked amazing, and another person in my party had gnocchi. Each of us were more than satisfied with our dishes, and with the friendly and professional service of the wait staff.

The atmosphere, the music, the subdued lighting, all contributed to a relaxing evening. As the surf pounded nearby, we had a lovely meal with wine and delicious cocktails. By the time we were finished we had all but forgotten about the reservation mixup. Give the Hula Grill a try!
