We have traveled the U.S.We have traveled the U.S. and eaten at many fine dining restaurants in cities like Boston, NYC, and San Francisco, and this easily rivals any place we've been. The risotto and pumpkin gnocchi were some of the best dishes we've ever had. We would come back to Maui just for this restaurant. The service was outstanding and the view at sunset was perfect.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHard to capture in wordsOur table on the terrace had the most beautiful view on this island. We came to spend the evening and stayed two and a half hours; only come with people you really like because there is none of the usual diversion- it is intimate. The lobster salad and heirloom tomato caprese were excellent and surprisingly generous appetizers. The signature risotto with truffle and mushroom was the best we have ever had. Next, the medium rare fresh ahi with root vegetables- had great flavors and was again very generous. Dark Chocolate tart is excellent. Waiter (was one of the top professionals we've ever met, including from our Northern California area.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful views, Good foodThe lanai seating was beautiful, but be aware that you will be in full sun until sunset, with no shade (wear sunscreen and bring sunglasses). The Prix fix menu was very well prepared and presented. The steak was perfectly cooked, and the salad was great. The only con was the bread is definitely not made in house and was very generic. The portions were small, so I was glad I wasn't paying full price.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentI work as a butler, I am familiar with good food and service.....and my dining experience was stellar when I dined here.The waiter was well informed, made suggestions that were spot on, and even the back waiter/busser knew the food when I asked him a question.
Where can you go wrong with a restaurant that will bring you a glass of whole milk with your delicious chocolate dessert? Nowhere!
The table was perfect, the ambience private dining more than a restaurant..can't wait to go back on my next visit this fall!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMView and food are outstanding!We ate dinner here to celebrate our anniversary while on Maui. The view is amazing, the food very good and the service was great as there were only 4 tables being served on a Sunday evening. My one complaint is that I ordered the filet med well and it was medium at best. It took the kitchen 20 minutes to fix it. My husband was done with his entree when it finally returned. It was excellent but should not have taken so long to correct since it was already medium. We had the prix fixe three course meal and a bottle of wine. I would have thought they would comp something for the inconvenience or even a glass of champagne or something for our anniversary but all we got was a note card on the table that said Happy Anniversary.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingBetter than Duo & Ferraros. The food was amazing. Absolutely loved it.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at CapischeThe patio setting is very quiet and pleasant. It allows for a sunset view (try to be there by 6:30 p.m.). The risotto is the best anywhere. I introduced friends to the restaurant and they are sure to be back.
The wait staff was very cordial and helpful.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great touch. They calledWhat a great touch. They called me the next day to ensure our experience was memorable. Now that was memorable!!!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner here was absolutelyDinner here was absolutely lovely. The wait staff was patient and friendly, the food was done very well, and the view (sans some trees) was a very nice view of the setting sun. Iʻm not sure when I would return again in the future, but it was a lovely restaurant.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic ExperienceCapische? truly offers an amazing dining experience on Maui. Pretty much everything was perfection - from the reservations experience to the departure. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and really engaged with the guests. The view is spectacular and the design is really intimate. The food was beautifully presented on gorgeous dishes. Most importantly, the food was delicious. I loved the tortellini appetizer! I was waiting to dine there on a special occasion and it was so worth it.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA Pleasant SurpriseWe were lucky enough to be staying at the Hotel Wailea where Capische is located. I usually am disappointed with resort restaurants but not this time. First of all, the service was excellent, friendly but proper. The food was very well prepared, the chef has a delicate hand with flavors, letting the intrinsic flavors of the food speak for themselves. We shared the cioppino for the entree and, yes, it is expensive (I would say overly) but each morsel of seafood was perfect and the seasoning delightful. I am impressed.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMRelax and enjoy the viewStart off at the bar with cocktails and enjoy the view. Make a reservation around sunset and savor the food. The meal was exquisite. Loved the veal shank and cioppino. Our only disappointment was the wine selection offered, way overpriced.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in MauiThis place has it all--great food, great service and great ambiance. The menu changes often, but we had the grilled tako (octopus), mushroom risotto, bruschetta, gnocchi and braised lamb shank. Everything was absolutely delicious. This place is not to be missed.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe sat on the bacont withWe sat on the bacont with its awesome views (maybe the best on Maui). All of the food was incredible and the service was first rate. Will be back next time I am in Maui.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMVery romantic!Excellent service. Pricey but what isn't in Wailea?! We were celebrating our anniversary and they had a card for us. We had requested the romantic garden area, but due to rain earlier in the day we were on the veranda with a beautiful view. Very nice for a special occasion. They even called the next day to make sure we enjoyed our dining experience4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCapische is an exquisite restaurantCapische is an exquisite restaurant located in Wailea, Maui, Hawai'i. It was an excellent meal in an exquisite place during an exquisite Hawai'ian vacation. The food was wonderful, the view of the Pacific and the grounds of your hotel was beautiful. It was a special dinner at a very special place.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were excellent. We stayed for after dinner cocktails and enjoyed the great mixes at the bar. Can't say enough nice things. Had the locally caught calamari crud. Phenomenal.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place. Request a gardenGreat place. Request a garden seat if your reservation is after sunset. Otherwise the balcony is the place to be. This place is not as expensive as the rip off resort hotel restaurants. Great place.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMPradeepCapische is an A La Carte restaurant. Food presentation and service were great. Food quantities are small. Service was outstanding. We loved it.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI was thoroughly impressedI was thoroughly impressed in every way by Capische. We were looking to take our family to a special dinner and picked perfectly!
All the goodness started when someone called to confirm our reservations and I asked about bringing our children, they are 10, 7 and 5yo. She assured me it would be fine and really made me feel at ease.
Once we arrived the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable in every way. The service was amazing, I believe best I have ever experienced.
And the views and food were out of this world. A++++ This will definitely be a tradition for future Maui trips!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSouth Maui GemExcellent service, very nice food preparation with a stunning sunset ocean view. One of the places to go when visiting Maui.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent choice for Wailea diningCapische is a wonderful addition to the Wailea scene. The ambience is excellent. The service can be slow, but is generally attentive. The staff are very friendly. There can be a little bit of wind at the top of the hill, so maybe bring a cover-up just in case. The kabocha squash gnocchi are excellent, as is the cioppino, full of seafood! The desserts are excellent also. Hightly recommended overall.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHoneymoon DinnerI was so impressed with everything during my dining experience at Capische. I mentioned on Opentable that it was the lastnight of my honeymoon on Maui and the staff exceeded my exceptions. They set a table right on the balcony for my wife and me that had a spectacular view of the west coast of Maui. The main course recommendations our server (Kyle) made were second to none. We will definitely be returning to Capische our next trip to Maui.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMCapische certainly deservesCapische certainly deserves to ranked among Maui's finest restaurants. On location alone it is the best. The ambiance and service are second to none and, with the exception of Mama's and the Lahaina Grill, the food easily surpasses all the others. We did our usual sharing of appetizers, mains and dessert - the kitchen had no trouble in splitting the servings and sending them out individually. Our server was charming and knowledgeable, and engaging at appropriate times. The wine list, while at a pretty high mark-up (like the rest of Maui), was very good. We were so impressed that we booked dinner at sunset on our last day in Maui, just two days after this, our first visit.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my mother for her 89thTook my mother for her 89th birthday. The table was perfect to see the sunset, although a bit blinding while it was setting. The food was outstanding. Each course presented beautifully with a full depth of flavors. The service was excellent, although lagged at the end. Had to ask for a coffee refill and slow to follow up after we completed our meal. My mother's dessert had a candle on it and she felt special. Thanks for a great experience!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you are in Wailea and don'tIf you are in Wailea and don't mind spending some money and time on a beautiful meal, Capische hits the spot. Located in the charming Hotel Wailea, Capische offers an outstanding sunset view and a great restaurant environment. The food was spectacular. As reviews I read before dining there indicated, standouts were on the appetizer menu, specifically Mushroom Truffle Risotto and Lavender Pumpkin Gnocchi. Desserts - including the brioche doughnuts, creme brulee sampler and the chocolate salted caramel tart - were amazing. The only possible complaint was the speed of service, resulting in a dinner of two hours plus.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMUnexpectedly delicious. AUnexpectedly delicious. A little bit chill for outside dining at the beginning of March. Too dark to read the menu, but the small LED light that the waiter borrowed us was very helpful.3/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only thing that stopsThe only thing that stops me from rating this 5 stars is the pricing. The food was outstanding, atmosphere excellent, service terrific (especially like the person who delivers the food explaining the details of how it was prepared as it was being delivered). But it is hard to see how the pricing of the salad and appetizer portion of the menu was created. But - if you are willing to look past the price - the food is awesome. They also have a very nice wine menu (which oddly enough appeared to me to be more reasonably priced than the food - which is unusual).11/30/2012 12:00:00 AM
