A word from Alan Wong’s Amasia - Grand Wailea - Waldorf Astoria
Literally, Amasia is a conceptual future supercontinent that would result in the merging of Asia and North America. Inspired to bring together the cultures of both continents through his travels and showcase our local bounty in his style of Hawaii Regional Cuisine, Chef Alan Wong has created a menu where east and west meet at Wailea.

Diner Reviews
  • "The hot appetizers were fantastic! The entrees were nothing special. They were good, but not worth the high price. If you go, just get a bunch of appetizers, a side of the broccoli and some drinks. Didn't live up to the hype. The devour isplain and boring, the bar was far more appealing than the dining room."

  • "Tempura snapper that was mushy, onaga looked good but very bland, overly eager server, even the cocktails were way over priced given the quality. We had lunch earlier in Lahaina at a place that cost half as much and was more than twice as good for very similar food."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We were very disappointed in the food. At the prices they charge, the food should be hot not luke warm or cold. It seemed like the tempura items were made in advance, put on a decorated plate and served. Very mediocre. The ambiance was lovely, but the food was very disappointing. I do believe that $19 for a lemon drop martini is a bit much especially since the glass was only two thirds full. We won't be back. Way over hyped."

  • "It was my 2nd time to Amasia. They trimmed down the menu a bit, but there was still a lot of good and creative food choices. If you go with a group and it's your 1st time, order lots of items and share with your fellow diners (family style). Save room for desert too!"

  • "We had a great dinner here. The 2 servers (Sara was one of their names) that we had were outstanding and knew the ins and outs of everything on the menu. A great experience"

  • " We were staying at the Grand Wailea and had heard fantastic reviews so wanted to try it. We had the prix fixed tasting dinner menu and it was very good but not great. Creative presentations and served quickly. A good overview of the chefs various hot and cold items. We sat near a fake waterfall- a little kitchy. Wish we had known that there were private booths which could be reserved. Prices were high for items on the menu. But this is a very elegant place in the Grand Wailea. We saw other dishes being served and everyone around us seemed to like the food. May deserve a second shot and order various dishes to try."

  • "The food was not to my liking, They say east meets west meets Hawaii. But it was not really enjoyable for me. I tried to keep an open mind. Maybe a foodie would like it more. And the service was very slow. Not sure why, it wasn't crowded. But the server did give us some malasadas to take with us for our long wait."

  • "Food was decent, service was terrible. We sat for almost an hour and a half before the kids' drink orders were taken. Not a bite of food on the table at that point either."

  • "We ate here for our anniversary in June 2014. We selected the Chef's Tasting Menu and it was out of this world! Each course had enough food to get a good taste but not too much that you were too stuffed to taste the next course! And it included a full-sized dessert that you could select. In the end, it was a great deal for the caliber and the amount of food. I also highly-recommend the tomato salad which we ordered in addition to the tasting menu. It seems simple but the sauce is incredible making the dish very memorable!"

  • "We were in Maui and wanted to find a special place to celebrate my birthday. My husband chose Amasia. GREAT CHOICE. Hubby chose the 5 course tasters menu and my daughter and I shared the steamed opakapaka. We had the tomato in li hing sauce (fabulous) and one coconut dessert and one pineapple shave ice. OH SOO ONO!!! (hawaiian for - delicious) Our server, Sara, made the experience that much more special - she was excellent."

  • "Gorgeous interior design the beauty is cannot be described The taster course is a must The food is so good you will finish your bottle of wine early so next we will have wine pairings I am a huge fan of Alan Wong after dinner here you will be too"

  • "Was definitely an experience. Chef Alan Wong personally overseeing the kitchen, a special 5 course midsummer feast for two, and a disaster of a dinner. Having dined at Alan Wongs in Oahu a # of times, I was expecting more than we got from Amasia. It's the little things- like bringing bread, describing each dish, clearing items. How about- don't seat your 2 top next to a 14 top w 8 kids(shame on the host for doing this!,) or -checking back in to see if dishes/we were okay, or even noticing that we're waiting 30min+ between courses. Seemed like they were too busy or just didn't care enough to check in.We let management know at the 2hr mark that we were ready to walk (3rd course). They sped up our meal and were happy to charge us full price."

  • "My experience at Alan Wong's Amasia could be one of the top worst dining experience. I was extremely disappointed with the service. The waiter (Terry) was ingeniune and treated us like stupid tourists. We asked to see the menu numerous times after we ordered and never got it. We got sitted in a remost section at the back of the restaurant by ourselves. When we asked to move to another table, he guaranteed we would receive the best service. Once two other tables were filled, we couldn't get any attention. The food was okay but hardly 5 stars. I had sashimi donburi so it could not go wrong. My husband's shrimps were dried and overcooked. I cannot believe it is a highly rated Alan Wong's property. Alan needs to straighten things out."

  • "We have been Alan Wong devotees all the way back to his amaIng restaurant at the Four Seasons Hualalai on the big island. This location did not disappoint; the thought and planning that went into the beautiful interior was equalled by the wonderful food! We would be hard pressed to decide whether the food or service were better: Terry was an outstanding, thoughtful (and thought provoking) server, and we would certainly request a table that he was serving were we to return."

  • "Beautiful dining experience and very convenient when staying on the hotel strip in Wailea--restaurant is in the Grand Wailea. Some of the dishes were excellent while others were simply good. The ahi entree was served with a "paste" of some sort which had no redeeming taste but other fish entrees were fantastic. Maybe we should have ordered the sushi instead??? I would go back though and try other dishes."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The food was prepared in a most delicious manner with tasty ingredients and pairing. It was visually pleasing to the eye. The service was excellent with Sarah Callahan as our server who was very knowledgeable about each entree. She gave on top of her game with her focused attention! "

  • "Everyone sang the praises of this place in Maui, so maybe I had my bar set too high but I was underwhelmed by my experience at Amasia. I took the tasting menu to really give the check a fair shot at wowing me. For starters, I think the "faux Japanese village" decor they have is a bit dated. The did not convey a sense of elegance, but rather more of a gimmick. The service while friendly and timely, also lacked some polish. I expect waiters at this type of restaurant to be able to tell me details about each plate including where the key ingredients originate, cooking techniques , etc. Many times plates were simply brought to the table and all we got was the name of the dish. Finally, the food itself just didn't feel special. "

  • "Great deal on food between 5:00 and 6:00 pm. That was a pleasant surprise for us that we weren't expecting - 50% off the food! Tasting menu was excellent with or without the discount. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Alan Wong's in HNL is world class restaurant-food, service, overall experience. This restaurant was an expensive hotel restaurant. We love spicy but the chili noodles were swimming in little chili peppers and drowning in a heavy short rib flavor. The kampachi tempura was very fresh but bland. Maybe good as an expensive sushi bar and other dishes might be much better."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "I ordered the Garlic Shrimp and it was amazing. Really wasn't bad eating the shrimp WITH the shell and all ! Likd the fact that they had loaner reading glasses for my mom since she forgot hers to read the menu. The meal tasted like it was right out of an episode of IronChef. "
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "We were excited to discover that Amasia was located in the Grand Wailea. The walk down to the restaurant from the front of the hotel is simply lovely. The restaurant itself does not keep up with the walk to it. No big deal though as we were there for the food. Alan Wong does not disappoint. The ceviche starter is a must. So many bold flavors. The short ribs and Ono were to die for. Again, so many bold flavors. The shaved ice and coconut deserts were a perfect topper. Our server was a bit slow for my taste. It took him 15 minutes after being seated to take a drink order. To be fair, he knew the menu and each items ingredients cold. Bedside manner is important in my world. Apparently, the same cannot be said for our server. "

  • "Upon entering the maybe 1/3 full restaurant we were whisked away to the warmest and most uncomfortable table with the option to "wait" for another because the restaurant was "full". So after sitting there boiling for a couple of minutes without being offered a glass of water we decided to leave. Upon exiting, the manager was able to quickly find us another table in a more comfortable setting and more attentive service. While the restaurant had an unusual feeling about it, perhaps as it was closing for the evening (and I'll add that if this is the case perhaps the restaurant should reconsider its reservation schedule), the food was absolutely fantastic and our server knowledgable and attentive without being overbearing. Very nice."

  • "Worst upscale establishment I've ever been to. My bill was close to 1k and the service was horrendous and the food matched it ! Do not waste your money !"

  • "I will be blunt - we were very wary based on some earlier negative Open Table reviews. We are very happy to say that said previous negative reviews were extremely wrong. The ambiance was fabulous - the décor is very chic and enticing. Those who have stated that it is dark and needs updating really need to get their vision checked. The service was outstanding - our waitress Quinn was very knowledgeable and very honest. The service was expedient without being forceful, and there was no hovering or interrupting. The food was excellent, and the wine pairings were excellent fits. I can't understand the negative reviews from previous diners - they make absolutely no sense compared to our wonderful dining experience!"

  • "All of our food came at one time ALL of it. The worst dinning experience in Hawaii ever after 150 visits to the islands. Alan would have gone NUTS if he were there."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Average food. Did the tasting menu. Nothing really wowed me and overpriced. Only duck bao and coconut ice cream good. Would not return or recommend."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "I read the reviews on open table. My open table comrades were correct! Atmosphere is like a Denny's. Place needs to be closed down and updated. Grand wailea and Alan Wong should be ashamed. Our wine which was recommended by the bartender tasted like the metallic screw top. There were three tables of diners there on a Friday night in spring- that says something. And they were out of lamb and another entree! This was at 6:30 pm! The place smells musty. If you think this critique is too harsh, it is not. We paid a lot of money for this waste of what should have been a wonderful evening. My husband and I work hard and it takes a ton of planning to get away. This was a fail. Only redeeming factor is that we experienced it together."

  • "Slow service (15 minutes before our drink orders were taken--10 more minutes before they arrived), and we were seated in a small room with a large table of 10, 8 of whom were children, while most of the rest of the other rooms were vacant. The food was good, not great. If I went back, would definitely sit at the sushi bar...for me, this would be the only reason to go. Sorry."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Tucked away in the back of the massive Grand Wilea Hotel and inside a not very appealing space, the restaurant was so disappointing. The service was average and the food apart from the creative appetizers disappointing. Would not go back - there are too many outstanding alternatives on Maui."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "I had the wagyu steak. For $90 i expected a lot more. I can make a better $10 steak at home. The meat was tough, and the sauce was over powering. The best thing was the spicy ahi roll, and that was average at best. On the upside, the waiter was fast, accommodating, and friendly. But, that's not enough to bring me back again."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Excellent sushi and nicely prepared tempura asparagus. Fish entrees could have more flair. Nothing wowed us like the Honolulu location does. The restaurant is made up of small sections that wind around. My husband & I were first seated at 7:30 in a section with two other families with young kids. OK- we're parents too. Then they sat a young family with a crying baby and a toddler right next to us. 8 kids in a small room felt more like a kid's party than a nice dinner.The waiter agreed to move us. Alan Wong needs to do some work to make this place worth the price."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "This was litterally so good, we came back a second evening. The service is a bit slow, however our server, Terry was very detailed oriented and gave us his undivided attention. Do not come here if you are on a tight budget."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "The food was extraordinarily good, and the wait staff (in spite of their being PLENTY of them) was unacceptably slow and inattentive. My waiter was much more interested in telling me the meaning of the symbols in the menu than he was on providing us good service. The food was splendid, but overpriced (as is almost everything in Wailea). When the time came that we were finished and wanted to leave, the man to deliver the check was nowhere to be found. Inexcusably poor service for what was obviously a very slow night. For the full experience you really want, go up the road about 3/4 mile to the Andaz hotel and let Chef Morimoto's team Wow you. We spent more money there than I've ever spent on a single meal, but every cent was worth it."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "We all enjoyed the food in a party of six,however it took almost 50 minutes to get our entrées. Also the techno music was incredibly irritating. Bottom line-would probably not eat here again as there's many other places also serving great fish on the island."
