Gaylord's at Kilohana
The service was very attentiveThe service was very attentive and friendly. The presentation of salads and entree dishes was artful and appealing. The proportions were sufficient and the combinations of foods complimentary. The garden setting is relaxing. The live music might be considered a treat by some, but I would have preferred the sound of gurgling waters and wind chimes to compliment the garden surroundings. All in all a good choice for a special occasion.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch to kick start our vacayAmbiance was beautiful with amazing foliage.

We will try to return!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA little pricey, great locationA little pricey, great location for a special occasion dinner. Cocktails at or around $10 and dishes $26 to $35 (do not include salad). Enjoy!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday brunch reviewMy husband's prime rib with omelet was a bit disappointing--not the rich p.r. flavor he was expecting. My ahi tuna hollandaise was OK. I missed not seeing a soup on the buffet (like 3 yrs ago, which was my favorite buffet memory). Heavy emphasis on carbohydrates/breads--would like a better balance with veggies, soups, meats. Desserts and fruits excellent, but I thought you had cheesecakes and ice creams before. Have you cut back??? At $30 per person, that's disappointing. Cheeses gone and no staff available to ask. I requested vanilla tea for 1st serving; disappointing that my server assumed I would want same selection for 2nd cup and did not bring the box of tea selections.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMthe beef was melt in yourthe beef was melt in your mouth. couldnot be better. skip the pasta dishes. not so good. the fresh fish was stupendous4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went there for our 12thWe went there for our 12th Anniversary, waitress (Denise) was very friendly and there were a lot of selection for food.

It looks like much of the original furnishings are still being used. We arrived for dinner early on Friday night, and had a drink in the bar. The caliente (spicy) margarita was perfect. The bar opens onto the large courtyard. The dinner tables are arranged around the courtyard, under the overhanging roof. A combo play out "soft" music out in the courtyard (they stopped at 8:30). We shared a delicious swordfish dinner. The service was attentive & not rushed. This restaurant is a "keeper". Make sure you make reservations.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love the ambiance of thisWe love the ambiance of this place, such charm and character. Service was a bit slow but we got our drinks right away (awesome cocktails) and the food was quite good. Portions are HUMONGOUS. Not sure who can eat all that, but my fried chicken dish could have easily been a dish for two very hungry adults. We felt bad letting so much food go to waste. I hope the restaurant composts ...3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful place. We lovedBeautiful place. We loved the desert.
