Hawaii Mom Blog: `Ulu Ocean Grill at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai

`Ulu Ocean Grill at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai

Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is one of my favorite resorts in the state.  It's just a spectacular property, and the service is stellar.  It's been years since I last stepped foot on property, so I was excited when I got to visit some colleagues and have dinner at `Ulu Ocean Grill - one of the restaurants at the resort.

The view from `Ulu is just amazing, and there is plenty of outdoor seating.

Complimentary Bread

Mauka Berry Mojito

We indulged in a variety of sushi and sashimi.  

Otoro + Caviar


Assorted Sashimi

Wagyu + Caviar

Assorted Nigiri
The Wagyu was my fave, and the hamachi was one of the best my friend had ever had outside of Japan!

Roasted Kekela Beet Salad

This beet salad was delightful, and I loved the accompanying roasted chili cashews.

Ali`i Mushroom "Loco Moco"
This vegetarian twist on a traditional loco moco was served chilled.  A tomato egg yolk with hearts of palm sat atop a tower of cauliflower rice and mushrooms in a black pepper emulsion.

Crispy Calamari
The Crispy Calamari was the best calamari dish I ever had.  The calamari is cooked sous vide, which made the calamari so tender.  

Shave Ice

The Shave Ice dessert was light and refreshing.  Consisting of a coconut sorbet atop a pineapple granite, with li hing mui pineapple, strawberry pearls, and lilikoi meringue.  The tropical flavors were perfect for the setting!

Mango Lime Tart

I'm not a huge fan of citrusy, tart desserts, but the Mango Lime Tart was amazing! It had just the right amount of sweetness and tartness, and I loved the layers of mango flavor that came through in the mango lime custard, mango jellies, and compressed mango cubes.   

Dinner was fantastic, and our server, Bronson, was exceptional.
