A good alternative to Duke's as it's just upstairs. Same view, good service, food, and drinks. We wait there for our table at Duke's and enjoy their appetizers and drinks. We still prefer Duke's better menu and salad bar, but sometimes the wait downstairs is too long or you just can't get a reservation at a reasonable time.

Sit up here for sunset and request a table on the rail (expect to wait). When I first moved here, I was upset because I requested a table on the rail for myself and I was given an indoor table after waiting for 40 minutes (like everyone else). The person who seated me told me that people who were solo... More

The restaurant is casual, so everyone is able to enjoy the place. I went there for dinner with my daughter. When I got there, The waiter was very kind. The seat was adjacent to the terrace, so i enjoyed the beautiful sunset. The food I ordered was tuna taco with wasabi flavored. That was amazing.

We ended up here after having difficulties with Dukes which is located below. So very glad things worked out as they did as this was the last night of our holidays and it was so good. We didn't have a reservation so sat in the bar area, where the menu suited us better anyway (slightly different menu). Still table service... More

We stayed at the Hyatt across the street, and we walked over to the Hula Grill 3 times - twice for breakfast and once for dinner. The food, service and view were all wonderful. Every meal was very good or better.

We are here on Christmas Eve. You would think it would be a "feed them and get them out of here" mentally. No! It was a relaxing, enjoyable meal. The food was excellent and so was the wait staff. Get the fresh fish, you can't go wrong. You must save room for dessert. Make a reservation. Try to get a... More

We had dinner for two, each of us ordered one of the fresh fish entrees. Delicious and perfectly prepared, especially the Harissa Roasted Opah We did not have reservations so we waited about 35 minutes for a table, which did not seem out of line considering how busy they appeared. Staff checked on us several times as we waited, which... More

Great Hawaiian breakfast, loco moco is so full on flavour you might go back there just for that. The view is breathe taking... Breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Thank Leshi1
