Great meal here on a last night. Tip, make a reservation because it can be difficult to get in. We waited until the same day and open table had it booked. Front desk had it booked. We called directly at 4pm and they got us in at first setting. Food was delicious. The service was great the ambiance was amazing.

This restaurant had some of the best service we have had, and the food was outstanding. Its setting is one of the most beautiful for a restaurant I have ever seen - on the beach with lighted surf. It is a magical place to dine.

Great Sunday brunch. Waffles are great and sitting outside on a Sunday morning is a great way to spend some time

We took a cab from another hotel to try this place and it was totally worth it. Amazing food, great professional service and absolutely beautiful view. The restaurant itself and the Four Seasons property are definitely in keeping with the reputation that the Four Seasons has built. If you are staying on the big island don't miss this place.

This restaurant had great reviews and they did not disappoint- the food was delicious, service was great, in a nice setting. Price is what you'd expect from Four Seasons but it was worth it.

We had a fantastic sushi dinner paired with a flight of saki tastings. Perfect sunset right on the beach with the waves crashing. Wow! Our waiter, Chad was excellent and the manager Cathleen was very friendly and convinced us to try their Poke. It was the best Poke I've ever had, prepared right at the table. This is the perfect...

We had a table on the outer edge, closest to the ocean, and enjoyed a beautiful sunset and then the waves highlighted after dark by lights in the palm trees. The service was excellent and the food was top notch, and the wine selection was good. I thought the pricing was very reasonable. We spent $255 for two salads, two... More

Ulu earned a 5+ on location, 5 on service, 4 on food, and 5 on value. The wine list is not long but it is interesting, with good selections available in all price ranges. The servers are great as coaches, and as your intermediaries between the menu and the kitchen. I am very particular about how I want my Onaga... More

My wife and I splurged and ate dinner at Ulu Ocean Grill. We watched the sunset from our table, we saw the torches lit along the beach, and enjoyed very tasty pina coladas before our dinner. Really beautiful view, one of the best on the island. The dinner was very nice. We had the sriracha shrimp and crab fritters for... More
