I had a much improved experience at this restaurant from my last visit. I received a friendly greeting at check-in. I was asked to wait for a bit, which was disappointing. I was seated at a table with good views. This is not an oceanfront...More

We had a wonderful meal. My husband had the fish combo and it was fabulous—3 kinds of white fish. I enjoyed the pork with Korean bbq sauce. The macadamia nut tart was to die for. Thanks to the ladies on the hike for their recommendation!

We recently had dinner at Hukilau Lanai, and we were very happy with our meal. The evening didn't start out promising since we had to wait about 15 minutes for our table in spite of our having made reservations weeks ago. Once we were seated,...More

Best meal after two weeks in Hawaii. The fish dishes were outstanding and waiter’s recommendations on point. We had Opah and Mixed Grill. I love gazpacho and they had wonderful gazpacho. We are Zin snobs and the Zin here was really good. All in all...More

I second the advice of another traveler to just call them and ask. Since the restaurant is part of a resort complex, I would be amazed if it did not operate on Christmas Day. But it might offer a buffet or some other type... More

They have an extensive wine and alcohol menu so one does not need to bring ones own wine. Most restaurants with alcohol license do not allow outside alcohol.
