Humuhumu - Grand Wailea Ratings and Reviews
It was a good night to go on Saturday evening in July at 7:30 pm with most everyone at the luau. The view from our table was amazing of the sky and water along with tiki torches blazing. Didn't have to leave my seat to take a photo of the amazing view. We had 2 appetizers, the Hamachi and scallops, they are small portions for the price but tastefully amazing. The Opaka was delicious and the steak was savory. It was quite a walk down from the lobby and we got lost. There are no signs and directions given by staff wasn't clear, but we eventually found it by following the windy path. We took advantage of the walking the coastline path after dinner. The stars were like glitter in the sky.
I'd say pass on this restaurant. It's very pricey and the food just wasn't delicious. Maybe we ordered the wrong thing but for those prices everything should be spectacular. The service was great, however a bit clueless. We were celebrating our 10th anniversary and the hostess sat us in the middle of two fairly loud families even though there was a whole area full of tables with adults and older families. They did offer us dessert on the house which was a nice gesture but I'd have preferred a more romantic table and better food. There are many other restaurants in the area at similar and lower price points. I'd suggest you go there.
Request to eat at conventional table. Making reservation for dinner expected better table, At 6ft 4 and eating at a cocktail table was not comfortable, yet the bar side ambiance was nice , just not suited for comfortable dining for a full meal. Appetizers and cocktails ok, but not full dinner.
We were mostly disappointed because the last time we dined at the Humu (17 years ago on our honeymoon) it was just so much more amazing. The fishpond was full of reef fish, there was a super cool lobster tank, I drank a tropical drink out of a coconut, and it just had a different vibe. This time, there were ZERO fish in the pond, you couldn't even order a lobster let alone see them in their tank, and I couldn't even get a LAVA FLOW (our server said there are no blenders at the Humu). We kind of wished we never knew what it was like before so we wouldn't have had anything to compare it to.
Our meal was excellent. I wish I could remember our waiters name, but it's been two weeks. He was good and honest. The friend I was with asked for some signature items, which were no longer on the menu. He was very sympathetic and missed those same items. One being a coconut coated coconut martini. Regardless, our meal was excellent. The ambience, perfect. Would go there next time.
Excellent restaurant. Outstanding food and service. Ken Caldwell is a class act, try to get him as a server and you will not be disappointed. The quality of the restaurants change over time. Humuhumu has revamped a lot of things as of Dec 2016. It is in our opinion, the best of the resort restaurants in Wailea - views, ambiance, food, drink list, service, giving back to the community, not pretentious - just great place. Ko and Monkey Pod are the other ones in Wailea worthy of mention in terms of food and service
SO DISAPPOINTED! We had great memories of 5-years ago after our wedding. Based on Frommers and other feedback, we believed we could expect the same. Not so. According to our server, in December the restaurant allowed the Chef to take over and rewrite the menu. As a party of 5, it was hard for anyone to even fine a single item that looked good. We succeeded in finding things to order, but the food was between unfit and average.
I guess if we had looked at very recent reviews we may have picked up on the menu change, but we didn't. The Ribs, one of our favorites from last time was gone, as were several other entres. We'll know better next time.
Even if you have no expectations or history w/ Huku Huku, I advise you to get a copy of a current menu before making a reservation.
This was our big special dinner while staying at the Grand Wailea for our honeymoon. They gave us a nice table for two right out with a good view although one person had to have their back to the view. The tables are rather close together so you'll be hearing all about what the other people are up to. Lol. The food was very good especially the scallops. All in all a nice dining experience.
I'm confused by the good reviews. We did not have a good experience at all. The poke was a complete disappointment and lacked any flavor. We asked for soy sauce to help bump up the flavor, and waited 10 min for it after asking a second time. Then it took forever to get our food. Almost 45 minutes! The waitress asked my husband if he wanted potatoes with his steak, claiming they were the best ever, and while they were very good, she failed to mention they were $12 extra (they weren't on the menu so we had no way of knowing). While $12 isn't a lot, I don't know why it has to be a big secret! My husband's steak was quite delicious, but my crusted mahi mahi was so so and def not worth $35. We didn't order drinks, so perhaps that is why we received sub par service but that doesn't account for the terrible poke. My husband and I are big foodies and love to cook, and Humu just didn't cut it for us.
Wow. Wow. Wow.
The food was AMAZING. Anyone that tells you otherwise was taking out their crappy day on their restaurant reviewing.
First of all - don't even BOTHER getting seated with anyone other than Justin. Rumor has it he won employee of the year at Grand Wailea (if that isn't true he should win this year!) He knew every inch of his craft. He knew what paired well together - and we were with friends and between us two couples we were torn between two appetizers - what did Justin do? Let us have a taste of each before we decided we loved EVERYTHING.
We had the rack of lamb, the mahi mahi, butchers steak, tomatoes with goat cheese, poke, radishes and carrots and the scallops - he also brought us complimentary desserts - 1 for each couple as we were both on our honeymoon.
The ambience is amazing, and the setting of the restaurant by the lagoon was phenomenal - for two young couples it really set the tone for our stay - even if we had the meal on our last night in Maui.
This restaraunt is a 5 out of 5 - every day of the week- all the time.
