Humuhumu - Grand Wailea Ratings and Reviews

We were staying at the Grand Wailea and read the positive reviews about the chef. This was an anniversary dinner and we wanted it to be special. There was a specialty cocktail menu with some interesting drinks. My husband and I shared the scallop appetizer and ahi appetizer which were both fantastic. I had the mahi mahi entree - divinely delicious.

Not so disappointed in the restaurant but with Open Table. Made reservations for bday and last night in Maui at one of the most beautiful restaurants on the ocean. Bummer when arrived for sunset dinner on our final night to find restaurant under construction and at new location. New location you can't see the ocean and could have been found in any upscale mall anyplace in America. I cried in bathroom alone after arrival cause I felt our last night in Maui and my bday dinner were nothing like I planned. Looked back and yes I was warned about new location in regular print at end of confirmation email. I would appreciate a bold red warning before you are allowed to book a reservation for an ocean view restaurant that can no longer see the ocean. I can't express my level of disappointment in last nights reservation.

Beware! The location has changed - the restaurant is under construction so it's temporarily located in a Japanese restaurant off the lobby. So no view, no sunset, no open air breeze. The air conditioner made the room so cold. There was no ambience. The staff really tried hard to make up for it though.

This was a great restaurant- it has moved downstairs to the old japanese restaurant- the service was outstanding- it runs cold so bring a sweater- had a great vegetarian noodle dish- that I loved and they even made it spicy for me

The seafood was decent, but I did not find it as good as some of the others on Maui. The normal restaurant location within the hotel is currently being renovated, and while the temporary location has a nice view of the hotel, it's not the ocean view one may be expecting. It took some time for our server to arrive, but once she did, the service was decent.

Excellent Filet however the accompanying potatoes were mediocre and the greens beans had only been waved over a pot of boiling water, too close to raw for my taste.
To be fair, the restaurant is currently in temporary quarters in the old Japanese restaurant while the "real" Humu" is being renovated.

They are remodeling the restaurant so it has been relocated to the other side off the resort which is not as nice. The said the remodeled restaurant will be reopen in December. Should have been made aware through their advertising and posting within Open Table. We had relatives vacationing so it was an extra disappointment.

The original location of this restaurant was closed due to renovation. Was unaware of this change until we arrived for dinner. The new location had no views, was dark and closed off. Might try it again once they move back to original locstion.

Wonderful place, great decor and perfect service. The food could be better, it's not as amazing as you'd expect from the price. The catch of the day was a bit dry/overcooked and placed on way too much rice (no matter how special its seasoning was), and the peanut butter/chocolate dish was just okay, nothing I haven't tasted before or that I can't make on my own, especially for these prices. But overall the entire experience was lovely.

Very excellent service. Menu simple but hit all the marks in choices.Would recommend especially when staying at Grand Wailea. The true restaurant is under construction and the ambiance there is wonderful. The substituition was very good.
Expensive but it is fine dining.

Very dissapointed! Understand the difficulty of being in a temp location, but, the food was obviously preprepared as it came out in under 10 minutes. No way a steak fillet and lobster can be prepped that fast. Lobster was dry and uninspired. We were sat in an isolated corner of the dining area and no other patrons were sat in that same area. Music was too loud and the playlist included Justin Bieber and other top 40 hits. Not even Hawaiian music. Ridiculous!
Terrible! The restaurant has moved from ...
Terrible! The restaurant has moved from the oceanfront location to next to the lobby. No views. No ambiance. We were never informed the location had changed. It was ridiculously hard to find the new location. It was a very long walk from the beach. The whole experience was terrible and we will NEVER go to another Grand Wailea restaurant ever!

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!
