Ulu Ocean Grill and Sushi Lounge at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai Review

Replacing the flagship Pahuia, this artfully renovated restaurant has the same spectacular oceanfront setting with a more casual dining experience that highlights locally grown products. Breakfast can be à la carte or buffet, but nighttime is when the magic happens, starting with an impressive wine program that includes boutique wines and world-class imports. Diverse menu choices—from roasted beet salad and corn-and-coconut soup to Big Island wild boar served with poha berry chutney, Kona lobster pad Thai, and local grass-fed tenderloin—make deciding what to order a challenge. There's also a full sushi menu. Reserve a table on the patio and you may spot whales while dining.

    Beautiful View and Wonderful Service

    You need reservation for dinner (and if you're not staying at the hotel, the guard checks your name on the reservation list before letting you on the premises).
    If you want a table on the oceanfront patio, book well in advance like we did and take a hat--most of it is unshaded.
    Service is truly magnificent, professional, and unpretentious. The food is also very good--the only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that the sauce on a portion of my shrimp dinner was extremely salty to the point of making my gums burn.
    We eat out at high end restaurants a lot and have no problem shelling out big bucks for great food (I have posted excellent reviews on this site for way more expensive restaurants.)
    However, I felt compelled to give it a 2 for value because my shrimp dinner cost almost $40 and there were THREE shrimp on my plate.
