Food was good. Service was fast. Location is convenient. This was our second visit and we will likely return. Good place to eat when shopping at Queen's Market Place.

A boring corporate style restaurant with a few fish dishes thrown in. Just average pasta dishes with not flair. They have fish entrées just because of where they are. Good for families and kids. Pizzas are the best bet. The chef shows no imagination.

This is always nice to drive to while at the Hilton. It is a nice change of pace and food is always the same.

We were celebrating a 70th birthday with 5 vivacious ladies. What an awesome evening eating the seafood linguini and delicious bread. Very attentive service even tho she was very busy with tables inside and out. Very refreshing as we ate outside on the lanai. We also received a free birthday desert we all shared. Yummy! Will recommend!

We always like to go there whenever we don't feel like cooking at home. Good price. Love the calamari and spinach salad. The bartender Howard is great!

My spouse had the Parmesan Chicken with Capellini Pomodora - the chicken was tender & the Pomodora sauce was acceptable & it was a very large serving. I ordered salmon - & ask for it to be pan sautéed rather than grilled, as I have found their grilled salmon to be too dry. We have a favorite server who seems... More

OK, I reviewed Macaroni Grill at Waikoloa a few months ago. The eternal optimist, I gave it another chance Sunday. The service and atmosphere were fine. Everything was good except the food. Really! This can be fixed with a new cook and a salt shaker and some management supervision. This food can't be cooked according to franchise standards. I ordered... More

Having dined at the RMG Ala Moana restaurant on many occasions, a standard of consistency was expected. I ordered the Mama's Trio, consisting of chicken parmesan, lasagna bolognese, and fettuccine alfredo. Upon being served, the dish looked generously portioned and delicious. But upon closer inspection, and putting a fork, spoon and knife to it, then eating it, I was terribly... More

If you're looking for a Macaroni Grill in HI, it fills the bill. Be ready to see the price difference from its mainland counterparts, and be prepared for very slow service.

When we looked inside it was quite busy, so thought it must be an ok place to eat. The menu is interesting with some unusual names and covers all areas of meals, chicken, pasta, salad, seafood and meat. We go for the same dish, Chicken under a brick, which is home cooked roast chicken and sage with asparagus and chat... More
