    Dined with spouse to celebrate birthday. Lovely interior and great ocean views. Servers were very attentative and friendly. We had the tasting menu, five courses cost $125 each. Wine by glass selection was disappointment. The dishes were decent but did not live up to the over-hyped reviews on Open Table. The bill totaled $340 and neither of us felt it was worth it. The restrooms are outside the restaurant, and they are old, dirty, and out of soap and hand towels. It's surprising that Hokus management would let this happen. Fine dining in tourist resorts is a risk. This place could be wor5h the high cost if the kitchen improved their tasting selections and quality.

    Hoku’s is the ultimate in luxury dining. My daughter chose Hoku’s as her 16th birthday dinner. She wanted special, she wanted unique, she wanted beauty. She got all of these and so much more. She and I both left not only absolutely physically full, but with hearts full of joy as well. I have served in restaurants most of my life, therefore admittedly, I can be pretty picky about service. Being completely honest, I don’t think even I have ever provided service to this level of perfection. When you think of perfect service in a high end restaurant, often “stuffy” or “overly formal” can come along with it. Our experience was like having family members taking care of us. Every person who touched our table were incredibly friendly (but not overbearing), knowledgeable, interesting, entertaining and they made you feel so at home that my daughter and I both agreed that we wished we could have had dinner WITH the staff, not just be served by them. The food was undoubtedly incredible with every course. Imaginative, gorgeous and delicious, each course was better than the next. Although perfectly paced in time, and the portions were appropriate, we were absolutely stuffed by the time our dessert came out. Despite being so full, we did not want to leave as we knew we would have to leave and we could have stayed and chatted with the staff for hours. We went to several high end meals during our stay in Hawaii, but when I asked which was my daughter’s favorite, she said hands down it was Hoku’s and she would forgo some much loved luxuries back home just to get back to Hawai’i as soon as possible so we could get back to Hoku’s. Hoku’s is the best of the best from service to food to atmosphere. We can’t wait to come back!

    We chose this restaurant for my husband's birthday dinner. The ambience was elegant, the service exceptional, and the food was to die for. We each had the four course menu. Each course offers four items from which to choose. We made certain to choose different things, so we sampled eight of the sixteen offerings. I am very particular about food and wine, and every bite was wonderful. If you can afford it, Hoku's is a gem.
