I enjoyed the service very much, and the food was not bad. I was hoping for a better experience, but since the restaurant was temporarily moved for renovations it's just not the same. I feel as though the menu could have been fuller.

The restaurant is displaced to anther location on the property while the Humu is being spruced up, so this evaluation is based on a temporary restaurant site. Once back in its rightful location I think the star rating will rise

Booked restaurant a few weeks in advance. This would be our 3rd trip to Humu.
So,,not knowing Humu Is Currently Relocated to Paradise rest which is a Japanese style. My personnel least favorite ambiance. I wouldn't have gone. Food went up in price. Hulu pie was small. Not worrth it. The server was awful. The male serving staff was great. We won't go back. $500.00. $18.00 drinks come on!

Although the restaurant was moved to a temporary location while their permanent spot is being renovated, we weren't disappointed. We didn't have sunset views, but the ambience was quite nice. The food (ahi with foie gras) was outstanding and the service was exceptional. I think our server's name was Leis and she was knowledgeable, sharing information about the menu and culture to us as well as to the group next to us. She created a delightful experience for us.

We scheduled this dinner while on vacation to celebrate our 30 year wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was beyond expectations and the sunset view was amazing. Our waiter was over the top as you would expect at a restaurant of this caliber. The food was good but I have had similar quality at less expensive places. The dinner rolls could be purchased at the grocery store. I expected fresh baked. Overall, go for the experience and be happy!

We saved this restaurant for the last night of our vacation. It was a fun place to be, and the food and views were fantastic. Our waitress Christina was so genuine and provided amazing service. We will be requesting her in the future!

Outstanding, as always. We were greeted and only had to wait about 3 minutes to be seated. OUr server was so kind, and very patient as we had our 3 year old with us and she was just oohing and aching instead of concentrating on eating. The drinks were on point, food delicious and the sunset was beautiful!

Food was good, not outstanding like I've heard. Special fish of the day was dry and sauce was minimal.
I made reservation with open table asking for a special table as it was our anniversary. They did not mention our anniversary nor give us a special table.
Very pricey for the portions. However out waitress was very nice.

What a disappointment. This restaurant has definitely gone downhill. My husband and I ate here in July 1993 on our honeymoon. Watched the sunset, overlooked a lagoon filled with fish, ate a great meal. I was looking forward to this dinner. The fish tanks are now gone and the lagoon is filled with stagnant, dirty, disgusting water. No matter where you sit in the restaurant and when you walk in to the hostess station, the water is unappealing. All kinds of things are floating in it. How can you spend so much money on a meal that is tasty only to look at stagnant, dirty water? Took all the joy out of the meal not to mention the taste and appeal of the food. The restaurant was barely half full at 7:30 pm on a Saturday. Hmm... In Hawaii, and at a huge resort, if a restaurant is half full at prime time on a prime day, turn around.

This is a place that has always been at the top of my list of faves. Having not been here for ten years, I assumed it would be the same or even improved. Sadly the famous moat usually filled with incredible sea life, is now moldy toxic green stagnant water. This swamp draws mosquitos, so beware. Giant bumps all over us!! They said they are about to close for renovations BUT that should not mean the guests toward the end should suffer thru mediocre food and lazy service, while sitting in the sad swamp land. Soooo bummed.

We had a delicious meal and a wonderful waitress. She was very knowledgable about the menu and was willing to offer suggestions when asked. The view from our table was breathtaking. We highly recommend this restaurant for a special romantic occasion, such as a honeymoon or anniversary.

The setting is spectacular; grand grass building overlooking koi pond and Pacific Ocean. Food was quite good - although they 'ran out' (?!?) of one of their signature dishes when we dined. Service was abysmal with waiter disappearing for extended periods of time - which really frustrated everyone at our table. Definitely go - but avoid Michael as your server!

HumuHumu is a beautiful restaurant in an absolutely gorgeous setting! When making the reservation we requested either table #70 (large round table sitting on a pier which must be reserved at least 72 hours in advance...didn't know that at the time) for our group of 5, or a table near the rail on the ocean side; we received neither request, in fact we were at the furthest point away from either requested table. However, after asking to be moved, the hostess was more than happy to find us another table with a somewhat better view of a wonderful sunset. The food was good; I'm giving it 4 stars because A) the service was sub-par, in turn the food was not served at it's optimum temperature and B) the menu had multiple items that featured Mahi, BUT, it was all being substituted with another fish that evening...the alternate fish wasn't nearly as good. The waitress was friendly and nice; however, was missing a lot...drinks weren't refilled/replaced in a timely manner, food was delayed, long wait for the check, etc. The saving grace for me was THE dessert...Humu Pie! Don't miss it; it will make you forget what happened before that point in your meal!! Overall, HumuHumu is a dining experience that I would definitely recommend.

The sunset view was amazing, but of course it makes for a very warm and glaring experience. The overhead fans help, but since the restaurant sits on top an ulua pond, it also helps circulate the smell. We enjoyed the seared scallop appetizer, and a couple signature cocktails. The filet was ok, but the seared ahi was delicious. Make sure to save room for their desserts!
