We had high expectations when we went to 'Ulu in February; unfortunately, they were not met. Several of the appetizers we ordered (hamachi, kampachi) were very tasty, but the portions were skimpy for the price. Then the mains: the coating on a Kona steak was too sweet and coffee-flavored that we could not taste whatever flavor the meat had. The... 更多
Went twice while staying at Hualalai once for the open menu which was very good and once for the Saturday evening tasting menu which was memorable. Setting is a "10" and the food great depending on what your order. They do have some imaginative specials that they offer nightly. Service could be more on the ball as this is a... 更多
I took my wife here to celebrate her birthday. It is a beautiful restaurant with seating right by the ocean. We ordered five dishes. Two were excellent-the sriracha shrimp appetizer and the charred Hawaiian hapu . The shrimp were extremely fresh and perfectly cooked. The shrimp are placed on attractively cut portions of watermelon that pair nicely with the hot... 更多
We loved this! It has a beautiful view and the sushi was excellent. They make your poke table side and it was delicious as well. Don't miss this one.
We had a 6:30 seating and were one table back from those closest to the water so we had a great view of the sunset. The wind really started to blow and those closest to the water were having some issues but they appeared willing to move anyone back or inside the restaurant that requested it. The service was typical... 更多
Another place not to miss if you appreciate fine dining. The menu had something for everybody: Fresh Fish, Steak, Chicken, wild Boar and sushi, if you prefer. We opted for appetizers of fried octopus and a shrimp roll, followed by a tomato salad. Our main course was Moi, a local fresh caught fish served whole in a soy cilantro sauce.... 更多
variable service- first night we ate here our waiter was excellent and the food was good. Second time our family ate here, the waiter did not ask for soufflé orders until dinner plates had been cleared, and our outside was so windy glasses were being knocked over and we had to ask to be moved inside.
We were in Kona for a week and went here twice for dinner. Amazing fish and sushi. Great wine list. One of the best places we've eaten at in Hawaii ( including Maui).
Absolutely beautiful indoor/outdoor dining. The food was good, but not really incredible. They didn't have as much variety as I would have expected. Reservation was required on a weeknight.
Had dinner with a party of 10 at Ulu. I typically rank a restaurant on three aspects Ambiance, Service, and Food. Ulu hits on every point. Ambiance - 5 star - Having eaten at all the main ocean side restaurants on the Kona and Kohala coasts this is the best sunset dining experience hands down. The restaurant sprawls on two... 更多
