Humuhumu - Grand Wailea Ratings and Reviews
Always eat at Humuhumunukunukupaa when in Maui. Great food and attentive service. We hit Restaurant Week and got a fabulous 3 course meal at a reduced cost, which was an added benefit. Restaurant has been renovated since the last time u as there, but the decor hasn't changed, only the menu, slightly, and the standards are still up to the original's.
Restaurant overrated. Starting with the fact that the bar doesn't have a blender to make tropical drinks at a Hawaiian resort, along with beer only served in a can at a high end restaurant. Server dripped juice from plate several times on us. Risotto was very tasty, as was the tomahawk steak.
The view can't be beat, but the service is sub par.
The tip automatically added to the bill explains the lack of service.
We had a great honeymoon dinner at the Grand Wailea's signature restaurant. The location and view can't be beat. The food was very good and we were presented with a complimentary desert for our celebration dinner. Our server was ok, but we wished for the one at a neighboring table who seemed MUCH more informed and engaged. Expensive, but well worth the price for a special dinner. Aloha!
I miss the old humu humu with beautiful aquarium in the bar. No fish in the lagoon to look at. The menu was trying too hard to be different and eccentric (pigs ears, etc) and not "classic" Hawaiian fare. Very disappointing. The service and view, however, were excellent.
Really good restaurant in a world class hotel. Ambiance, service and food were world class! Ken was an outstanding and knowledgeable server who also pointed us to some of the most sought after items on the menu. Seek him out! The food is definitely better this time vs a few years ago. One of the best dining experiences we have had on the island
I've dined at Humuhumu a few times. The restaurant has a great ocean view and is particularly beautiful if you get one of the outer row tables during sunset. The service is almost always top notch. This was my first visit to Humu this year and I was a little surprised to see a new menu. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem but my wife and I were really looking forward to "surf and turf" and it is no longer on the menu. We started with the Baby Butter Lettuce Salad, which was excellent. For the main course, we opted for the Maui Cattle Butcher Steak. It was a perfect "medium-rare" as ordered but I was underwhelmed by the dish. I would say that it was very good but I thought the sauce overpowered the accompanying greens. The server did a great job though. Overall, it was a very nice dinner...it just didn't quite live up to the expectations from our past dining experiences.
What a pleasant experience. We were dragging and in a not so great mood after taking a nearly 14 hour trip from NJ. The drinks, appetizers, and entrees were excellent. Despite a full house, the meal came out in a very timely manner and tasted fantastic. We definitely recommend Humuhumu to all who visit Maui.
Ho Hum Ho Hum. Much more appropriate.. The food was overpriced, unremarkable, and inconsistent. The service was painful. The good news is the bug did not come with the Tuna Poke. At least we don't think so. You know it's a bad meal when the best thing about it was the flavored butter that came with the dry, ordinary rolls. At least until the bug decided to move from the tuna to the butter. Thankfully we only had to wait ten minutes for new butter. Frankly, the whole experience was a bit bizarre.
Disappointing menu. Slow service. When you go out for an anniversary dinner and all you can find to order is a salad, I would call that an unsuccessful meal. I have gone here for many years but won't be back again unless the menu changes. The selections are too limited.
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.
We were staying at Ho'olei and decided to have our final meal on property. I was a bit skeptical after reading some reviews but was pleasantly surprised. We had a group of 9 (4 adults and 5 children). They placed us on our own table in a special pod on the water. It was great because I didn't have to worry about my kids being too loud because we had our own "space". Our waiter was fantastic. He offered good suggestions and was very friendly with our group. He served my kids' food promptly while the adults were still enjoying drinks and appetizers because my kids were very hungry. Also, my son is on a gluten free, casein free, soy free diet and they were able to accomodate his needs just fine. They even had a gluten free bread basket for him! I was most impressed with the service and quality of the food. It was a great way to end our vacation! I would definitely go back with my family.
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.
