    It was our last night on Maui and had some money left in the food budget. My wife went on open table and searched for area restaurants and Gerard's came up. The reviews were great and they were right. The food the service and atmosphere were fantastic. Our waiter Phil made great recommendations and everything was delicious. It is a little expensive but well worth it.

    I've come to Kanapali, Maui, for over 10 years and always keep Gerard's for the last or special dinner. Went twice on this last week. The staff is very professional and attentive to details. Food is tastefully cooked and presented. Portions are reasonable enough to enjoy dessert. Will be back again next year!

    Gerard's is one of a kind and off the beaten track for Lahaina dining. Food excellent and service was spot on. Great place for a special occasion or if you enjoy gourmet fare. The atmosphere is like being in someones French country house with a large lanai that has tables also. Expensive, but definitely worth it. Nice wine list also. We had the snapper with the carrot and potato mash. Was delicious. The waiter Gabouy was outstanding and a character.

    I was thrilled with my dinning experience here! The food was fantastic! The service staff were so friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. A very pleasant treat. The preparation and taste of the Mahi-Mahi was amazing as well as the scallop starter. The individual rhubarb pie with ginger ice cream and mint was such a pleasant surprise and was just so good! I say 6 stars or more

    My husband and I have dined at Gerard's a number of times during our holidays in Maui over years, and we now live in Maui and go there occasionally. We always have wonderful experience - Food (we normally have seafood) is excellent, the waiters are truly professional, and the whole atmosphere is relaxing, elegant and friendly. If it is a smaller group than 4 people, we always ask for a table on the balcony. Tables in the small patio are also nice, but the availability is subject to weather.

    Gerard's is an iconic Lahaina restaurant that delivers a fantastic dining experience. From the moment you enter you are greeted as if you are the only customer of the evening. The service of Phil and David was impeccable, anticipating our every need. The food was excellent combining French techniques with island flavors. Gerard's is on our short list of must eat restaurants whenever we're on Maui!

    Everything is exemplary. The only comment I might have is that maybe a change or update in the menu might be needed, right now the only change is the nightly fresh catch. Everything is cooked, plated, served to perfection and i will return.

    We visit Gerard's each year when we come to Maui, and it is still our favorite. The menu remains largely the same each year, and prices continue higher. I had venison en cruette that was spectacular; my wife had the always safe Maui beef. Sitting on the porch is always lovely, and the service is attentive. As always, you can expect to chat with diners at adjacent tables, adding to the ambiance. Gerard's is not to be missed.

    My fiance and I came here on a thursday night and sat on the front porch, it was a very romantic setting. Not knowing exactly what to order, We decided on the 8 course sea food degustation meal. My Fiancé loved the shrimp pasta with truffle butter course. My favorite was the Fresh catch of the day topped with crab meat and mashed lentil. For dessert I had the sorbet and my fiancé had the chocolate mousse. I have to say overall it was a very enjoyable experience. I'm glad we chose the porch for our seating area, this certainly set the tone for the evening. The food was very good, not excellent, but still delicious nonetheless. I would def recommend Gerard's.

    My husband and I loved every delectable morsel! The escargot - mmm mmm! Every bite was wonderful! We took our time to enjoy an especially tasteful dinner and the lovely outdoor porch settting. My scallops - in a lovely sauce and a special whipped potato surround - so perfect. The filet that my husband shared with me - had to have been the most perfect texture and taste! Done to a perfect medium rare! All accompanied by perfect service and wine choice. We are frequent visitors to Maui and can't wait to visit Gerard's again!

    This is definitely a splurge restaurant, and well worth the splurge. There are tables available in the air conditioned inside, and tables on the porch with overhead fans, as well as tables in the lovely garden. The table is yours for the night. We love sitting on the porch with a view of the garden. Take your time enjoying a cocktail, an appetizer (don't miss the seared fois gras). Then settle in and choose your entre. My favorite is the island snapper, prepared in a citrus sauce to die for. This is a "don't miss" experience -I highly recommend it.

    My wife and I went over to Maui from the Big Island for a change of pace. We love both Mama's Fish House and the Lahaina Grill, but decided to try Gerard's for a change. It was great! If you like traditional French cooking, this is the place you want to go. My pate de compagne was wonderful. The special for the evening was a mahi mahi in a special sauce finished with some crab meat that was also great. And finally, we decided to share a profiterole au chocolate for dessert. I expected the dinner to be good based on the reviews. However, we both walked out of the restaurant wondering when we could schedule the next trip here. It reminds me of the Michelin one stars that dot the Loire Valley in France where we lived for two years.

    Come here every visit to Maui, never disappointed. Always save this experience for the last night in Maui. Fresh fish, savory, flavorful French sauces, but not heavy. Fresh and local produce served. Killer home-made ice cream (Dusty Road). Next time will try the 8 course wine pairing.

    My husband and I travel and dine out a lot. We sat in Gerard's and through the entire meal we were shaking our heads from side to side. I started laughing. We could not believe how good our meals were. We had eaten fish all week so chose a filet for him and pork loin (which I never eat) for me. I like food on a sweeter note and this was like heaven! Honestly my favorite dish I've ever had!! It just surpassed an entrée I had at Harry's bar in Venice. It's a little pricey perhaps but I'd rather go there once and eat at home the rest of the trip! Thank you Gerard!!! Btw the filet was amazing as well!!!! Excellent wait staff - excellent restaurant - excellent menu - excellent wine list - supurlative chef!

    We spent our 38th anniversary at Gerard's and it did not disappoint. My husband and cousin had Maui Snapper, I had scallops, and my other cousin had a vegetarian concoction made up from other entrees. It was all around a great experience. I wished, however, that their menu offered Caesar Salad and a few other entrees.

    We had very high expectations here and maybe that's why we were just a tad disappointed. We tried the tasting menu, 8 courses of seafood. Some were very good (jumbo shrimp and truffled pasta, scallop ceviche), some just good ( dumplings, ahi tartare) but the house special fish preparation was disappointingly overcooked.

    Gerard's is probably the finest French restaurant in Maui, and candidly one of the very best restaurants as well. Classic menu, great service, good wine list and a very friendly atmosphere. Sit inside or on the porch and enjoy the French inspired menu. It has been at the Plantation Inn for 32 years and going strong. It will not disappoint you.

    Amazing French restaurant. My first French dining experience and I loved it all. The best thing I ate here was the foie grais which I've never had. It was actually the tastiest thing I've ever eaten. It was made with poha berries and so sweet and rich I loved every bite. Highly recommend.

    This is one of our favorite restaurants on the planet. There simply aren't enough superlatives for this incredible place - Gerard is ever-present, giving attention to every detail, and the staff is genuinely happy to see you. The food is immaculately presented with classic French preparations, at a pace that can be as long or as short as you desire. We had a wonderful birthday celebration, and will continue to return to this outstanding restaurant.

    On the way to the restaurant our driver told us he had been told it was an American French restaurant! (Whatever that is :o) Well we ate outside with nice table linen, the waiter was French, the food was French, Wine was French and plentiful. The only non French thing was the lack of cheese due to the number of their clients whom ordered it. Service was excellent and food good, reasonably expensive but that based on experience so far is to be expected in Maui.

  • A slice of Paris in Lahaina Maui.
    Bigbear2112
    Dined on 7/15/2014
    With a wide porch and beautiful location in Lahaina Town, Gerard's is a wonderful taste of Paris in Maui. Service was top notch and food quality was excellent, especially dessert. Our server was friendly, wine knowledgable and ready to offer suggestions if so desired. Next time I would put more focus on the house cured charcuterie and local fish entrées. Small complaint is that the table side bread is not equal to the rest of the meal. It lacks the crispy crust and chewy interior of a baguette which would have completed the whole Paris flavor ( minus the rude waiter :-) as Gibouy our waiter was very nice.
