    We went to Gannon's this past Saturday night for a friend's birthday and arrived after the sunset. This caused the restaurant to feel dark and gloomy rather than with the lovely view we saw when we returned the next day just to observe the view. The food was good but the seafood paella I had was made with congealed rice caused from the grease of the sausage mixed in with the rice on the bottom of the dish with fresh seafood on the top. While the seafood was delicious, the rice was awful and not edible. It will be a long time before we go back to Gannon's which was sad because we have always loved her restaurants!!

    We always look forward to our trip to Maui and Bev Gannon's Weilea is a must for us. It is our favorite restaurant. Through the years the restaurant has been excellent from hostess greeting to dessert. The noise level is low so I can actually hear my parter in the beautiful outdoor setting. The sunset view is fabulous. Portions are generous. We split the butter lettuce salad and each had an entree. We were not rushed. Atmosphere was calm. The food is always a work of art. I would recommend this experience to friends and family, ( even my niece's husband who is an excellent chef).

    Fantastic dinner at Gannon's. Everything was perfect from the fantastic view table to the food and the attentive service. Also got a great value as we were able to pick up discounted gift certificates at Costco. $79.99 for $100 in gift certificates so you save 20% on your first $100. This is one of our favorite restaurants on Maui.

    One of my 'go to' restaurants in Wailea. We only went for drinks and pupu's. Ordered the poke which was good, but maybe more like poke salad as the fish was cut into fairly small cubes. More like something to eat with a fork or even a spoon rather than chopsticks. Ordered the sashimi platter too - good fresh fish and was gone in a flash.

    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.

    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!

    My family of 4 came to Gannon's to hopefully fix a horrible dining experience for my 10 year wedding anniversary. We were visiting from Honolulu and was eager to find a gem to enjoy dinner. We walked into Gannon's and immediately loved the decor and ambience. The waiter was exceptional and tended to our every need. We were seated in a spectacular area with wonderful sweeping views. But, more than anything, the food was fabulous!!!! I don't even know what was in my dish, but, I finished every last bit to the point of it being embarassing for myself. My children wanted to go back over and over again. I wish..... Love you Gannon's!!!! You made our anniversary so very memorable. We will be back!!!!!

    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.

    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.

    Gannon's is the perfect location to have a fabulous meal and watch the sunset . It sits on the slope above Wailea with a breath-taking view of Molokini and Makena. We had the Mahi Mahi in red curry sauce and the scallops on lobster risotto. Both dishes were superb. It is such a peaceful spot.
