    Gannon's is for the refined eater who analyzes and enjoys each bite. The chef prepares the rib eye and the seared ahi in a melt in your miuth fashion which I'm sure is a secret formula to prepare. I don't recommend the mahi mahi although the staff seems to push it as the night's special. The heavy fish smell of the Mahi Mahi was coming a mile away. I recommend the seared ahi and the rib eye. Both were excellent.

    Once again, we enjoyed a delicious meal at Gannon's. We split the paella which was outstanding. Also had a great find of a Burgess merlot that was 25% off that was wonderful. Always a great meal here.

    1. I asked what Ahi was and the waiter told me is a red fish and failed to tell me is in fact TUNA!!!! 2. The Ahi poke was basically soaked in Sesame oil and that's all I could taste. 3. They cooked their catch of the day fish deep fried!!!! Why would you cook fresh fish in oil if they can really cook? So overpriced for what it was! unimpressed!

    My family, including 3 children, ate at Gannon's for our last dinner in Maui before returning to NY. What a great choice! The restaurant was beautiful, the view was other wordly and the service was top notch. One of our sons has a nut allergy, which they handled expertly. The food was incredible, with the lobster paella being beyond compare. I highly recommend!

    Husband surprise me with trip to Maui for my 50th birthday. He made reservations for dinner Gannon's in Wailea. The view was breath taking. Lush tropical setting with Ocean view, beautiful sunset. Chad was our waiter. He was very pleasant and knowledgable. We started dinner with a first course of Calamari crusted with macadamia nuts, very delicious. Second course was local greens with beets, also very good. But the Maincourse fell short of our expectations. I had the Scallops with Rissotto and my husband choose the Salmon, Good favor but we expected more, both were very pricey. Still would recommend

    Our waiter was excellent, knowledgable, intuitive and there when we needed him… The menu was interesting - well balanced with different options proteins etc. The caesar salad with anchovies, the only complaint - the anchovies were served whole and slabbed over the salad - yuck… We should have been informed of this - I thought they would be incorporated into the dressing. The steak was excellent, cooked perfectly rare - and the korean short ribs were very tasty not too sweet… both very nicely plated on heated plates. Huge portions, hot plates, good service, great drinks, going again!

    It had been some time since we last dinned at Gannon's , and we were more than pleasantly surprised . Every thing was exquisitely presented and beyond yummy.....the Tower was amazing & Monchong cooked perfectly. The quiet ambience and view are given, but the food surpasses those pluses. If you haven't been back in awhile .....you should put Gannon's on your dinning list!

    I had the scallop risotto and my BF had the roasted chicken, both were exceptional. The roasted chicken serving was very generous. Risotto I was a little worried since serving was small, but was perfect for me with my smaller appetite. The scallops were cooked to perfection and the risotto was to die for. We will definitely be repeat customers anytime we're on Maui!

    We had a reservation through Open Table and waited at the hostess table awhile to be noticed to be seated in an obviously empty restaurant. The staff was slow and visiting amongst themselves, however, we liked our waiter and his attention and service at dinner. We were not checked in by the host on Open Table causing us to have to explain afterwards that we had honored our reservation, though we had provided our name to the host on check in. The food was good but overpriced. Ambiance did not meet the pricey menu. The menu lacked variety and choices. The restaurant was very empty and slow. Would not go back again.

    We have dined here over the past few years. This year was better than ever. Views are always spectacular. The service (Timothy) and dinner (Spareribs/Ahi) were excellent, the portions were generous and wine selections/price quite reasonable. This was the best experience we have had at Gsnnon's over the past 4 years and recommend it highly.

    We had a grand setting for the Fourth of July with natural fireworks. The sunset was the most colorful and peaceful that we had on the island. The food was great and the service was extremely attentive. I would recommend this out of the way place to all. It was the best setting that we had a meal on the island and the food matched the view.

    My husband and I had the seafood paella and Ono for dinner. Food was good, but not great enough to warrant the $44 price for each entree. The pricing at Gannon's is as expensive as places like Mama's Fish House in Paia and the restaurants at the Four Seasons Wailea. The only problem is that Gannon's doesn't prepare the fish as well as Mama's nor has the full ocean view, and is not located in an expensive hotel to justify the overpricing-Gannon's is in an old golf club house on one of the three Wailea golf courses. If you want to experience Bev Gannon's cooking in Wailea, go to Joe's at Grand Champions. Food is slightly less expensive but just as good.

    The food at Gannon's is AMAZING! However, the service was well below par this evening. Server showed little attention to us after we wanted anything to drink. Our table of 4 ordered 1 alcoholic beverage, the rest water. He appeared annoyed by our order. Asked if we're ready to order dinner - we had one question; Any dairy free options? He didn't know, then said no. We asked if there is an option the kitchen could prepare. He claimed to ask the kitchen, the answer was "no dairy free options." We ate there 2 days prior - dairy free option available. Again, server look annoyed he had to ask. 3 of us ordered food, he didn't check on us for 30 mins. We asked for extra bread, he forgot 2x. 2 days prior, our server was amazing!

    I was in Maui 16 years ago, went to Seawatch, (now Gannons)...loved it! This time, though the view can't be beat, the restaurant makeover felt cold and lost the charm I remember. Menu was limited, and not as good as Mama's Fish House which we went to a few nights prior.

    This restaurant was recommended for the food and the service and we only got 50%. The food was good and cooked perfectly and exactly what was expected. Unfortunately our server never even checked in to see if that was the case. Additionally I had to track down a passer by bus boy to request a cocktail on two separate occasions for myself and my wife. I didn't complain as I did not want to ruin the evening for my wife and my son. I am hoping this is not the norm for Gannon's but wanted to pass along to others

    I thought the food would be excellent but it was bad to mediocre. The vegetables were under cooked to the point the were in edible. I got the pork which should have been tender. It was incredibly tough so much so I had to leave most of it on my plate. There was a huge piece of fat in the middle of my polenta. The salad was good. I will never go here again and I eat out regularly on Maui. Nor will I recommend it to anyone.

    The food and beverages were universally outstanding. The mixed drinks were very imaginative making choices difficult. However, I went with an old standby, a Mai Tai, and it turned out to be one of the most delicious versions of the drink that I have ever tasted. We visited the restaurant during Wailea Restaurant Week and so only looked at the special menu. Despite the reduced choices, the selections were very imaginative and a good representation of what the restaurant has to offer. All of our selections were delicious and the portions were large. We ate outside overlooking the bay during sunset which was beautiful and romantic. One highlight of our meal was service which was very friendly and attentive. I cannot wait to return.

    We were in Wailea celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and my husband wanted to eat Bev Gannon's food. Instead of driving all the way to Hailimaile, we decided to try Gannon's in Wailea. Lucky for us it was the first day of restaurant week so we each got a three course meal for $49 apiece! My husband got the lamb which was delicious but a touch over cooked. I got the swine (tenderloin & pork belly) which was also a bit over cooked but yummy. The pickled beats and shallots served with the swine were interesting (fennel or anise flavored) but a bit too tart for me to enjoy them all. Our son got the NZ King salmon which was cooked to perfection. The chocolate bomb in raspberry sauce was a nice finish. (Apps were good too).
