    Ferraro's was a wonderful place to celebrate our honeymoon together. Wait staff were very professional, friendly and polite. The view and the food/drinks were amazing! A gorgeous place to view the sunset and then later watch the starry sky. They even gave us a cute complimentary dessert to congratulate us. Well worth the money!

    We had seen two recent reviews on Open Table that panned Ferraro's. Thus, we were a bit anxious about it, but frankly, we could not understand why others did not enjoy the restaurant. Perhaps if one were seated in the back of the restaurant near the bar, the ambience would be somewhat lost and it might be distractingly noisy. We were not in the very front, but had a nice table where we could appreciate the view, which was spectacular at sunset. The food was excellent, and the service was very good--perhaps not as good as Spago's or Duo, but still very good. The live music (violinist and guitar) was a nice compliment to the atmosphere. All in all, it was a great last night in Maui.

    The setting is spectacular. However we were otherwise disappointed. Special fish of the day was overcooked, risotto was terribly bland. There was a big focus on up selling and we were hurried throughout. Felt like a big corporate restaurant. Spend your dining dollars elsewhere.

    Kitchen sunk by large table and took over an hour to get entrees. Service also poor and slow to get anything including drinks. Food was also below expectations. My steak was cold and under seasoned. Easily the worst steak I've had at a comparable quality restaurant. My wife's entree was not as bad but under performed expectations and also bland. Other four seasons restaurants substantially better and are recommended. Great setting for sunset dinner is not worth other deficits.

    Ferraro's at the Four Season in Maui is among the best restaurants in Maui; and the view from outside on a verandah probably 150 yards from the ocean is hard to beat. Very good Italian food; a great place for a romantic dinner with someone special - worth a visit even when you are not staying at the Four Seasons.

    Best italian food I've had outside of Italy! Incredible setting, incredible food, incredible staff and great live music! A top knoch experience in a beautiful and relaxed setting that magically turns the Maui coast into the Amalfi coast. Even if it was in a not on a beach in Maui ( pretty freaking special ) It would be one my favorites. If in Maui don't miss gem!

    Great food and service. We had a fantastic table with ocean view. We split some dishes and the restaurant did a lovely job with the splits. Kids very welcome and accomodated at early dinner times. Very romantic setting as the sun sets. Pick your time for the experience you want. Pricy but worth it.

    We return to Ferraro's every year and are never disappointed. The outdoor dining provides a spectacular view of the ocean at sunset. The service and food are great...we always love to share the bruschetta trio and a caprese salad before our entrees. I would recommend the pasta main courses.

    Our first night on Maui we dined here for our anniversary dinner. The view was incredible, we got there around 6 and had a table right in the front overlooking the ocean. Our server was fantastic, very friendly and told us all about the specials and her take on the menu items. We had the Trader Vic's Mai Tai drinks which were nice and not too sweet. We then had the Chefs Choice appetizer of antipasto meats and cheeses which was nice but small. My husband had a filet with blue cheese crust and I had the pappardelle with lamb ragu. The steak was TINY and the lamb in the pappardelle was a bit to smokey and strong, not subtle as I had hoped. It's a beautiful place to go, but expensive!!

    My wife ordered a salmon that was great. I had a pasta with shrimp, clams etc. Her fish was wonderful but my pasta was dry. Probably set under a heat lamp too long. However - if you have never experienced 4 Season's service - go there just for that reason. They take it to a level no other hotel chain does. And - I mean everyone from the car valet - to every employee that even makes eye contact with you.

    We spent our 10th anniversary here on July 3rd. Everything was fantastic, from the bar tenders to the servers to having the very best table front and center. The food was amazing. I had the sea bass and my husband the catch of the day. Thank you so much for making our 10th anniversary very special! We hope to be back soon.

    Words cannot describe how pleased we were with this restaurant! The outdoor setting was so spectacular we were blown away. The service was top notch and the food delicious. We tried the surf and turf, lasagna, gnocchi, lava flow drinks, and several desserts. Everything was perfect! The service was outstanding and the chef even paid us a visit. The live 2 piece strings was so enjoyable we bought a CD as well. We even drove from Lahaina to this restaurant and would do it on our next visit since it was everything wrapped up to perfection!

    We couldn't have better things to say about this restaurant. We dined here twice while on our honeymoon. The location for sunset is absolutely stunning. It is such an amazing experience and just breath taking. The food at this restaurant is so delicious. We tried everything from the meat and cheese tasting, the salads, the risotto, the pastas, the chicken, and some lovely desserts. Everything we ate was just spectacular. Our wait staff both times was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and lovely. We never were rushed and were able to make it long and memorable 4-5 course meals. They also have a really good classic mai tai! One of our favorites on the island. They also have live violinists that really help add to the overall experience.

Our food, while very good, was a little uninspired. The menu could use a little spirit of adventure. But don't let that small criticism hold you back. Go! Enjoy!!!

    Food: To me the food here is over priced but I guess most of that cost is for the beautiful views. The pasta was made in house but was a bit too hard for my taste. The food was not very memorable. Personally I enjoy eating at the less fancy places as I noticed the food is much better. Service: They forgot to put my order in so I waited about 30-45 min. for our food. The waiter apologized and so did the manager and offered us tomato soup and donut balls for the trouble. Mistakes happen, I understand that just make sure to communicate it with us and don't wait until we ask about why it is taking so long. Other than that the service is pretty good since they owned up to it and apologized.
