North Shore Kula Grille (fka Kula Grille at Turtle Bay)

The ancient Hawaiians divided their land into three sections: Mauka, kula and makai – or mountains, midland and the sea – known as ahupua ‘a. It is the kula lands, primarily used for agriculture, that now serve as the inspiration for the North Shore Kula Grille.

Welcome to a place where farm-to-table thinking is behind every ingredient on our menu. Where fresh means seasonal produce picked just a few minutes away; where seafood is sourced daily from local waters; and where premium meats and poultry are raised with the utmost care on small-scale Hawaii farms and ranches.

At the North Shore Kula Grille you can explore the flavors of our islands as they have been enjoyed for centuries – naturally, with organic artisan farming and harvesting practices, showcasing the rich agricultural history of Hawaii and the North Shore in every dish.

"We had dinner at this restaurant with my family. The food seems overpriced for what you got. Our waitress informed us that they recently just redid the menu a week ago. She highly recommended the Kona Kampachi. Due to her recommendation I ordered this fish entrée, however it was extremely bland and tasteless. It needed some seasoning, spice, even salt. My husband ordered a burger. There were only two burger options on the menu. The burger that was brought to him was the burger that he did not order. He removed the avocado from the burger since he doesn't like avocado and told the waitress that he would eat it anyway since he didn't want to wait another 20 minutes while everyone else was eating their dinner. Halfway through eating his burger another server came by and asked him if he was done and attempted to take away his plate when he was still actively eating his dinner. Who does that?! Even the children did not like their food. Would not recommend this restaurant."

"We paid $130 and we had to flag down our own server,our appetizer order as incorrect,our main dish was warm.
The best part was the server who wasn't assigned to our area,he was nice.
Breakfast buffet was worth the $8 "upgrade"charge.

"Drinks and appetizers came fairly promptly, however, it seemed like the waitress took a break, while we were waiting for the entrees mind you... my dish came out cold, and my wife's was on the brink of having sat under heat lamps too long. It was my wife's birthday, so I kept my disappointment about the poor service and cold food to my self.
The drink was cold after all."

"This spot reminded me of an upscale coffee shop. Very noisy and hectic, with very marginal service and basic food that seems a bit pricey for the setting. Its mainly for breakfast, and also a lunch or two while you're at the resort. We ended up eating most of our meals at Ka'apai and at Lei Lei's at the golf course."

"We ate here one night and liked it so much we went back the next night. There are limited dining choices in the area around this hotel, and that always makes me wary about what happens when a hotel has a captive audience. But this restaurant, and the others on the property, act as if every customer really matters. The menu is very good and diverse, the setting is lovely, and the staff is very accommodating and welcoming."

"This was our first time at Turtle Bay.
Do not trust the food rankings on open table or trip advisor for here. Those had to be from people who don't mind spending $35 for rubber shrimp or over cooked steak.
Go to the food trucks. They are amazing. Garlic Shrimp saved us from eating only frittos."

"Out of seven nights staying at Turtle Bay Resort, wife and I had dinner at Kula Grille five times. Enjoyed every time. Hostess Jeannie and server Mario helped us frequently. Great food, service attentive yet relaxed. Perfect."

"We had just completed a 5 mile hike on the Poamojo trail and did not want to drive back to Honolulu so we chose this resort grille. I had experience with this venue from a visit 5 years ago and remembered it being quite good. We were seated immediately but after that everything slowed down. Appetizers were not delivered for about 20 minutes and then appeared with the entrees. The hostess explained that an event was taking place on the next floor and she could not manage the sequence without the entrees taking even longer. Even so, the seared Ahi tuna and the pork belly appetizer were both delivered at room temperature. The chocolate bomb dessert was OK but not very special and the accompanying brownies had an institutional taste. We were fed and watered but not impressed."

"The better than average cuisine was not enough to make up for the terrible service. It's hard to understand a waiting line without reservations with half the restaurant available. It was like a bad dream -- total disappointment. From half cleared tables that stayed for 20 mins to wait staff that seemed inconvenienced from the presence of the guests, all with a high tab, no thanks! Preferred the garlic and shrimp trucks in the North Shore. Someone should do this establishment a favor and bring in management to maximize the potential of this restaurant. The chef does it right -- too bad the remainder of the organization doesn't."

"I enjoyed the food but like the Pa'akai also at turtle bay the room has no ambiance at night, I'm sure during the day the views are spectacular but at night the lighting is too bright and it can be noisy as the high ceiling causes sound to travel."

"We had the Valentine's Buffet Dinner and could not believe that we found the best dinner possible! All of the food was wonderfully prepared and top quality. The selection was amazing and we could not get enough of each dish. We walked away with happy stomachs and an appreciation for the location."

"Great dining experience. I was worried that our reservation was given away. I called a few times to let the restaurant know that we would be late. They were very accommodating. It was a romantic ambience, with a rose on table and candle. Buffet Food was good. Loved the lamb. Will definitely be going back. Thanks to all the attentive staff throughout the evening."
