We were here a month ago from Maui to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We came back again and enjoyed it just as much. The WOW Caprese salad from local WOW Farms was unbelievably good, both times. Good pizzas (mascarpone, arugula, prosciutto di Parma; and authentic Margherita from Napoli) and ice cream bon bons dramatically served in a basket with "steaming" dry ice.
Katie was extremely kind to us, going out of her to show island aloha to us in many ways. One example: when we told her we were going to Italy, she wrote down a list of favorite special restaurants from her trip there last year. Katie and Natasha were both friendly and knowledgable about the intricacies of the food preparation and stories about the local farms where the produce and chicken were raised and grown. A delightful evening.

Be clear - this is not Four Seasons level food. Gorgeous setting and waitress was lovely. Food was shameful. Menu poorly designed. We planned this to celebrate our last night in Maui for a special treat - I was devastated. I had gnocchi and had to spit out wads of fat from meat sauce 3 times. I have had better at chain restaurants. The other restaurant on property is phenomenal!! Go there. This needs to be fixed!!!

Do not dine here if you are not a hotel guest. They charge an extra 20% to your bill if you are not staying at the hotel. This is not disclosed anywhere. I found out afterwards by checking my bank statement and calling the hotel. They stated that it's a 20% hold on the card until the charges clear and will take 5 business days to clear. NEVER have I ever been charged anything of the sort for dining. Beware.

Beautiful location, a bit hard to find in the dark from the self parking lot, food was excellent, service impeccable. Surprisingly this was actually one of the more reasonably priced meals my two kids and I had, an appetizer, salad, two entrees, and one pina colada, a virgin lava flow, and one soda and It was 160 with tip which wasn't bad especially with such exceptional food, service, and the view was amazing, even at night!

I proposed to my wife on the eve of our 24th wedding anniversary. Everyone at the restaurant helped me make it the perfect occasion. Out waitress Nikki was AWESOME. She helped us orchestrate and filmed the whole event for us. It was truly special. Thank you Nikki.
Excellent WOW salad and authentic pizza
We came here for late 8 pm dinner to celebrate our anniversary, which hostess and waiter acknowledged. We had already filled up on sushi, appetizers and dessert at oceanfront Ulu Sushi Lounge next door. So we ended up eating light. WOW salad with heirloom tomatoes from local WOW Farms (which we are lucky to get at home on Maui) was excellent, Caprese with creamy burrata. We have been to Italy many times, including Naples where Margherita pizza was invented. The Margherita pizza was excellent. We received great friendly service from Jan and Adam. We wanted to buy the great hook necklaces they wore, but we forgot by the time dinner was over.

We and our next-door neighbors have enjoyed many lunches and a few dinners at the Beach Tree over the last 10 years. This particular occasion was to say Aloha to those neighbors who are moving to Montana. Everything was perfect ...the food was outstanding and the service efficient but unobtrusive and very friendly. Bianca our server did an excellent job making this a very special good-bye dinner. We started with a champagne toast, then moved on to a half portion of the chef's pasta special for the evening which we shared family style. The entree's were varied and all very good from the GF grass fed hamburger, the Fresh Catch to the snapper served on a bed of sautéed vegetables very much like ratatouille with bit of olive tapenade on top of the snapper. The house-made focaccia served with a flavored olive oil was excellent. We topped the meal off with shared desserts, the Batik Room Bon Bons, circa 1964 and the Chocolate Torte Caprese. As a special treat Bianca poured each of us a sample of a popular "liquid" dessert wine, Moscato D'Asti, Vietti . Our evening at the Beach Tree made for a wonderful memory for all four of us.
Wonderful location and you will pay for it
The location of the Beach Tree restaurant is right on the beach at the Four Seasons Resort in Holualoa. The location is spectacular and the resort lights the incoming waves at night. The setting is wonderful for enjoying the sunset and it's fun to watch the young children playing in front of the restaurant on the grassy area. Unfortunately, the meal and wine is very, very expensive, so make sure you are expecting this before booking a reservation. The food is very good, as it should be for the premium prices.

Hate hate to leave! Beach tree is crowded so better make resos before you leave for Hawaii!! They have a variety of dishes.....pasta, fresh fish.....all so good!! The tomato bruschetta is amazing......fresh tomatoes, fresh grilled bread.....so good!! We eat at least two times every big island visit!!

The restaurant was very good!! Incredible views!! We came there not knowing it was at the Four Seasons! We also came there because there were $$ on the description!!!! The restaurant is $$$$!!! The bill with 2 appetizers, 2 adult entrees, 1 child entree, carafe of wine and a 1 dessert with tip was almost $300!! That isn't 2 dollar signs!! We ate at a lovely place called Cafe Pesto with the same quality and amount of food and wine...actually even better food if you ask me and the bill with tip was $130!! That's what I call 2 $$ signs!! Also I saw a picture of sashimi on one of the photos which was nowhere to be found!!
Love it !
This is my 2nd time , loved it the first time and still loving it.
We mainly ordered the beet salad and 3 veggies side dishes - Superb!
and we had their french rose wine , perfect with the food .
The spread that comes with the table bread is delicious.A meal all to itself !
Great service , very attentive staff .
Will be back for sure !
We have been to the Beach Tree many times since it opened and has never failed to be a wonderful evening. The service was great ( very accommodating to one of our party who was not feeling great), the setting is spectacular. We did a lot of sharing and enjoyed all of our food, especially the. Pieta.
Great ambiance, great service,food is pretty good
The location is perfect. The Four Seasons is a great hotel. We loved that they are kid friendly and it's outdoors for a beautiful sunset dinner. The menu is overdone. The food was good but in my opinion, they are trying too hard with their overdone menu choices. It makes ordering dinner very confusing. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant for a great dining experience while in Hawai'i.
Beach Tree is our "neighborhood" restaurant, but Saturday was the first time I can say we were disappointed. We had drinks at the bar before hand, bartender ( not sure of his name) was surly , no eye contact and his service was minimal. Tom the other bartender was great. Our dinner waiter was cold and again served us minimally. Food for all four of us was disappointing. 2 people ordered that exact same thing, but appearance was entirely different (waiter said it was the same dish). The mango dessert was delicious as usual, but portion has been reduced.
Ocean Side Jem
The ocean side location and sunset are magnificent. The dinner menu nearly match the ambiance. The pastas are made in house and are excellent. The service was very attentive and knowledgable of the menu. One of the top five restaurants on the Big Island.
Fine, but not fabulous...
I always have very high expectations at any Four Seasons property, but have been disappointed at Hualalai a number of times. The Beach Tree is the most consistent, and it was fine. We had a very nice server, and a table near the "outside". It seems a shame the truly outside tables are only set up for drinking, and most of those were empty. The lighting is too bright, and the whole terrace is unremarkable. The trail back to the restrooms is dark and confusing. I had to take my guests there, as they had not been before. The ladies room is off to the side in darkness. The food was fine, but not spectacular. The dessert, which sounded promising, (dark chocolate round cake with ice cream) was instead boring and slightly dry. My pasta dish was good and the arugula salad was basic, but nice. My friends said theirs was "average". My husband said it was "the least good food I had this trip". We enjoyed Brown's Beach House at the Orchid and Huggo's in town more.
