Humuhumu - Grand Wailea Ratings and Reviews

The view is beautiful, especially during sunset. The food is very good, although not a lot of menu choices. Prices are high, but you are paying for the whole experience. We learned they will be renovating soon - hopefully they won't change the look of the place.

This used to be my favorite place but I can no longer say it is worth the money. I can afford to eat here with no problem but I do expect not to be disappointed with the quality of the food at the price that is charged. The food quality was far inferior to what it has been in the past and the prices have jumped substantially. The service is excellent as always and the view can't be matched.

Not crowded but placed at a table in back of restaurant. Cocktails were good. Food was average. Lagoon water needs changing. Smelled foul. Another restaurant living off of the view. Not worth driving from west side of island.

We frequently stay at the Grand Y, the hotel where this restaurant is located. We have tried it in the past without great success. For a number of reasons, we had switched hotels for the past 6 trips over the past 3 years.
But, we decided we needed to go back to the Grand Y on this last trip. We searched for new dining sites in South Maui and noticed that Humu.....was rated very highly and the chef had been named "most inovative." My wife ordered the Catch of the Day. It was a very small piece of Moon fish on a bed of very common brown rice. That's innovation for you!
Shame on us, we know better than to choose dining locations in hotels. It was a very expensive reminder to STAY AWAY from most hotel based restaurants.
Cannot express loudly enough how mediocre this place still is. Great views are the only saving grace.

The Humuhumu was not up to the same standards as many other Maui Restaurants we visited. The food was OK but nothing really stood out to us. The service was about the same as our waitress was attentive but not personable which was not the norm on this island. The location and ocean views are outstanding however but that is the case with many of Maui's better restaurants. For the money (this place is pricey) Maui has much better options.

Over priced. Especially, $17 for caprese salad that came with two pieces of buffalo mozzerella the size of a walnut.
Also, $22 for a shot of tequila that other high end restaurants charge $12-$14.
The check for 5 should have been about $250, but turned into $500.

Delicious...as always! The goat cheese and watermelon salad is amazing. The scallops are divine and those are just the appetizers. The monchong is fantastic and my husband couldn't get enough of the ahi loins. One of our 'go to' dinner restaurants in Wailea.

Very disappointing evening - told concierge it was my wife's bday - no acknowledgement at restaraunt - waitress there was a cow - virtually ignored us all night - kids meal were ordinary / ours ok - very expensive / left and went next door to ritz for cocktail and dessert / way better / don't waste your time and hard earned at this place.

Food is okay,but portions are small even for a high end restaurant. The service is very fast, and it felt like all they cared about was flipping tables. We even held off on ordering our main courses because we got the sense they were trying to get us out in under an hour. After we ordered our entrees they were there within 5-7 minutes at max. We were shocked. We had not even been asked if we would like a glass of wine with our meal as everything came so quickly we were still on our first drinks that we ordered before our appetizers. Too fast. Way too fast. The server was pleasant, but very casual. We both felt the experience was subpar for what is regarded as a higher end restaurant. We also went to Spago on this trip and it was a much superior experience for a similarly priced meal. There is no comparison between the two. Spago every time.

We went to Humu on our wedding night and the employee's made our dining very special and romantic! We ended up at the restaurant a couple times while honeymooning and found it one of our favorite places! Will absolutely be back!

My husband and I chose to celebrate our wedding anniversay at Humu's. This was our second experience at this restaurant, and it was every bit as good as we had remembered. The ambiance is unmatched, and the food is outstanding. I started with the scallop appetizer which was so flavorful. For our entrees my husband and I both had the filet mignon, which was so tender. Even the sides of mashed potatoes and the charred broccolini were phenomenal. We finished off our evening with the Humu Pie, a delicious blend of coffee and macadamia nut ice creams atop an Oreo cookie crust - the best. Thank you to our server Ken for his attentiveness and kindness, and to the rest of the Humu staff for making our anniversary special. We will definitely return again.

Nice place-dined here many times. Seemed a bit 'off' this visit. The 'pod' we were in didn't have ceiling fans on-never got answer why, especially when other pods had fans on, on a sticky night. Service was good, fish was dry. Recognition of anniversary was nice touch. Thanks.

Good was good but extremely overpriced. More expensive than Spagos at the Four Seasons and a limited menu. Took 40 minutes to receive appetizers . Lady servers were fantastic, bread guy smacked the bread (which was Kings Hawaiian rolls from Safeway) on the table and left. Spicy Sesame beef very good but too spicy for my husband. Lamb was good but not great. We opted out of dessert and went back to our room instead. We stay at the Grand Wailea a couple times a year but avoid this place for reasons like this- usually walk over to the Four Seasons for food. Poor price point for what is received.

Beautiful scenery, great service. Food looks great presentation wise, but very little on the plate for the amout of money you pay. Tastes okay, i think too busy with flavoring and spices, which takes away the actual taste of the fish (we had mahi mahi and ahi). Desert was super small and tasted no different than any other desert on the island. Yes its expensive, but it did not give us the WOW with the taste that we expected. We did it once, but will not go back again.

Fantastic menu. Our meal was delicious an absolutely fresh. Our server was wonderful, with excellent suggestions and was very knowledgable regarding the flavors and pairings available. The view of the sunset over the sea is unmatched

Chef Michael Lofaro continues his excellent menu of fine dining and is able to accommodate special menus for those with severe food allergies. Our son has severe food allergies and we always go to his restaurant when we are on Maui because we can trust him to prepare our special menu for our son. He goes out of his way to make a memorable dining experience for the whole family, including those members who have severe food allergies. His restaurant is a gem on Maui.

I would say beautiful atmosphere, food was cooked well, BUT- really Grand Wailea? It's a seafood restaurant. You are on a beautiful resort on an ISLAND surrounded by bountiful oceans. I swear you had more meat offerings than fresh-locally caught-fish offerings. Just overall disappointed. You have a great opportunity to bring big local flavors, take them to the next level, and introduce them to thousands of people who want to experience Hawaii. I felt like the flavors could have been found anywhere. Nothing special nor "Hawaiian" about them. Well cooked, beautifully plated, but nothing special.
