Humuhumu - Grand Wailea Ratings and Reviews
We were celebrating our anniversary and had requested a quiet table. We arrived early for our reservation and reiterated that we wanted a quiet table and we're happy to wait at the bar until one became available. Our reservation was for 7:45, we were seated closer to 8:00.
Our table was about as far from quiet as possible. It was in the middle of the loudest part of the restaurant. Not only was it loud, it was a table for four. My husband ordered a stiff drink while I returned to the hostess stand to request a different table, you see people arriving after us were given exterior tables for two (apparently they had standing monthly reservations ... yeh ....).
Being that it was now after 8:00 and we were hungry we decided to stay, which we regret. The food was absolutely nothing special. The crunchy Mahi Mahi was flavorless. Our appetizers were removed from the table before we finished them. The server had zero wine knowledge or interest in explaining the menu to us.
Overall, a regrettable experience at a highly overrated restaurant in the most overrated / overhyped hotel in Wailea.
We were surrounded with screaming children and people in baseball hats. We watched one group walk out once they'd reviewed the menu and two others refuse the first table they'd been offered. We should have walked out.
Lesson learnt and not to be repeated.
This was our second visit, both were after the remodel and updated menu. Both visits were terrific! We had the same server both times, Patricia, who was friendly and efficient. The food is wonderful and creative. We tried to sample different items on this visit. We had the Ulu Risotto, Ahi Poke, Lacinato Kale & Fried Pig Ears, Spicy Beef, and the Maui Cattle Butchers Steak. The Kale and Pig Ears sounds weird which is exactly why I wanted to try it but the flavors were so interesting with the jalapeño and lime vinaigrette. Second time to get the ulu risotto - new to ulu and I love it. The ahi poke was fresh and came with little thin crispy sweet potato chips which I enjoyed. My husband liked his steak which sits on a tasty bed of ulu and dates. The menu is not kid friendly which seems to be what some are complaining about but things change. This is a nice, high end restaurant with a creative chef, not Chuck E. Cheese. We will definitely be back - for the food and the unbeatable view and the nice Kama'aina!
Not to be missed!!! Truly an amazing meal!!! Beautiful beachfront sunset view! Incredible food! Amazing service! Outstanding service! Great gluten free options!!! Perhaps the best meal on Maui!!! Plus Humuhum... Plus Joe's fur the kiddie to take home... awesome all around!!!
Services was mixed. Our server was great. She was assigned to at least six tables of four or greater with one assistant and service teamember. She was overtaxed but had a great service attitude and remained positive. Service person (food server bring out food from the kitchen) tried to serve us three different tables' food. Upon arriving, our napkins were missing. Water glasses were spotty and lipstick stains were left.
Food was inconsistent. Had the scallops and oapaka. Fish was cooked perfectly but the ginger rice was too acidic and the cucumbers with seaweed were clumped in too much liquid vinegar. Scallops were ruined by the truffle lemon sauce. Way too salty and lemony. The natural taste of such a high quality scallop could have come out better. Sauce seemed to be over seasoned and lemony liquid, although did not break the cream, was well cooked out to the point of it being a soup versus a sauce.
What saved this place is obviously one the the best sunset views in the world. Despite the mixed service and food, my family still enjoyed Humuhumu......
I miss the old humu menu and ambiance!!! Bring back the lobster!! We have gone every year for the past 12 years... unfortunately it's just not what it used to be!!! It's missing the charm it once had (actually the whole resort is). They have modern furniture in an old resort, it doesn't match up to well.
We have eaten at Humuhumu on each visit to Maui. Previous visit was great for our kids, feeding the fish, nice selection on the adult and kids menus and this is what brought us back. When I asked to be seated by the railing, I immediately looked over for the fish - apparently they were donated when they completed their renovation - okay, not a big deal, however my youngest was looking forward to seeing/feeding them. I quickly glanced over the kids menu, 3 choices, that's it and $12 for each choice...salad, fruit bowl or noodle bowl. Kids food came promptly, no complaints, just no selection. Adult drink menu was limited, as well as the dinner menu. Nice touch with a stuffed Humuhumu for the kids, but honestly felt I was "owed" that after the lack of choices and high prices on the menu ($19 for a adult drink). Can't beat the view, but other than that this restaurant is now on our "do not return" list for Maui.
Not worth it! I thought the menu was really strange - trying too hard to be gourmet. Even the kids menu was weird. Once you got in there the ambiance just wasn't that great. If you're going to splurge on a dinner in Maui, go to Mama's Fish House. Very expensive at Humuhumu!!!
Great service and aside from the large Birthday parties we shared our space with, a nice atmosphere. I rarely eat red meat anymore but was immediately struck by the rack of lamb entree and ordered it. My cordial (the Haleakala Sunrise) a tropical martini, was good. My dinner wine, Ulupalakua Syrah, was perfect, and my after dinner Sake (Jishoju) was barrel aged for 8 years with 4 additional years in safe keeping. Overall a nice dining experience.
Everything was great, our waitress Angela was exceptionally wonderful and very attentive. The one complaint we had was there was a company function next door that was incredibly loud and obnoxious! We at first we're very, very annoyed and disappointed. We had made dinner reservations to have a nice quiet dinner date and to have to listen to loud screaming and thumping wasn't ideal! The chef was very accommodating and tried to make it up by sending us complimentary appetizers and a dessert. The food was very good and We appreciated the extra effort to make it right. But when we made the reservation we should of been told. Overall the food was very good and Angela was outstanding.
When I made reservations I mentioned it was my wife Liz's birthday and this was never acknowledged in any way. Usually a free dessert is offered or an acknowledgment from the waiter.
Not a big deal but for a supposed high end restaurant??
Slow service and food was messed up. Will not be returning any time soon.
Great food with gorgeous view. If you are looking for a more romantic experience I would request a water view or table on the edge of the restaurant.
We knew this Humu was a higher end restaurant but still found the prices reasonable/as anticipated and the food was very good.
The sommelier was very nice and did ask if we wanted to consider a certain price range before providing recommendations, which we appreciate.
We aren't big foodies but definitely feel this was worth it, so I think anyone that can appreciate a quality meal with a beautiful atmosphere would like it here.
HumuHumu was in walking distance of where my husband and I were staying in Maui ! We spent our last night having dinner there. Our waiter, Larry, was friendly and kind and funny and wonderful and made our evening! The menu is not extremely vast and the food was just "ok." The ambience and the local "flavor" is the real reason to go and we were not disappointed!
Very disappointing . This is the 2nd time we stayed at the Grand Wailea and the food was not as good across the board. Humuhumu was especially poor for the value. Plenty of very good places in Maui, so why go here. Waiter was OK, but he kept apologizing for the changes to the menu, which seemed odd and telling.
Our food was delicious but our server completely ignored us. She said she was refilling our drinks before our meals were served but we never saw her again till she asked if we wanted dessert??? Asked for more bread and butter but that also was just forgotten. Very disappointed in our server but the food was very good. It was a birthday celebration and that also was overlooked. SB
Newly reopened and refreshed. The atmosphere is very "Hawaiian" and the food quality was excellent. My only comment would be a somewhat limited menu selection. I had the lamb chops, my wife had the fresh fish and both were wonderful. More attractive choices on the menu might have been appreciated. Overall, a great meal on property and we will certainly visit again.
Had been to the restaurant years ago on a prior vacation with my spouse. Was celebrating my retirement with my husband, my two daughters and their spouses. Wanted the rest of the family to enjoy one of our favorite dining experiences. The service, the food and the beautiful sunset was just perfect.
