Diner Reviews
  • "The dining experience was one of the best in my entire life. We had a party of 4 and each had 4 courses. Of the 16 items ordered, each was fantastic. Not one was average. It's easy for a restaurant to do a few dishes well but this one does them all well."

  • "my new favorite place to eat in Maui. Every dish was wonderful - great wine and a great server. Best fish we have had - broadbill swordfish and snaper. The scallop/spinach salad was really outstanding. We had three apetizers all better then the next While the pri fix menu was not available that night, the server worked with us to provide shared dishes he thought we would like. More people should know about this gem!"

  • "Gerard's never disappoints. Despite perhaps a score of visits to Gerard's there are still innovations on the menu and always a careful attention to detail. We normally order fish entrees but on the occasions we order meat, as this time, we are happy with our choice. The lobster dish was an excellent addition to the menu and the veal chop was nicely prepared with a little melted cheese. Desserts are also outstanding. Definitely worth a visit and to our taste the best restaurant on Maui."

  • "The flavor of the food was excellent, as was the presentation on the plate. The setting is very romantic. Had a small run-in with the waiter, which shouldn't have happened."

  • "We had the 8 course dinner for 2 with wine pairings. Every course, every bite, and every sip was superb. The ambiance (Thank you Jane Berkin et al), the wonderfully subtle, but charming service was intuitive and warm, but never overbearing or pretentious. It was such a pleasure. The highlight of our visit. We are hard to please and love finding the perfect food and dining experiences. No wonder the French rule cuisine! Everything from the perfectly seared scallop course to the luscious Fois Gras and the oh-so-delicate "oeuf mimosa", and everything in between, our evening was perfect! Thank you! We will be back!"

  • "My wife and I made a last minute reservation, and we were pleasantly surprised to have a memorable dinner. We sat out on their porch, where there were about 8 tables. A slight breeze and relaxing music added to the ambiance. You are several blocks from the water, so don't go for a view. We could find some faults with some of the courses, but overall, the food was very good. We were pleased with the service. Be willing to spend some money for dinner, but not more than other fine dining restaurants in the area."

  • "Gerard's could not have been more disappointing. I've been wanting to dine here for years and finally got around to it on this trip. Yuck. It might have been great a decade ago but it is SOOO tired now. The food was bland and boring. Service was uninspired. Foodies should go somewhere else. In fact, we did go to another restaurant after dining here just to get a decent snack. In chatting with what appeared to be a manager, we mentioned that we were disappointed with Gerard's and she agreed. She ate there years ago and hasn't gone back because it wasn't very good. Oh well... back to Haiiimaile, Mama's, Pacific O, all if were very good on this trip."

  • "The food was average, definitely don't know why it was ranked so highly on yelp and other reviews. Service was friendly, but the food was just average, not memorable, we were getting tired of the same old food everyday, so we thought we splurge a little and have ourselves a nice French dinner. The only nice part was the service and the local. I would love to tell you more about the food, but really, I can't even remember anything about them... Did not leave any impression..."

  • "Yes, we are in relaxed mood, but this was too slow. 20 minutes to bus a plate of crab leg shells was too long."

  • "Everything we ordered was so very tasty! Started with liver pate. Amazingly wonderful! Shared the Ono topped with crab meat. Finished with rhubarb pie topped with ginger ice cream. Would definitely recommend!!!"

  • "Great food and service. Probably the most refreshing frensh food tasted so far. Will be revisiting next time I'm in Maui. BTW, the Plantation innto whihc the restaurant is attached is a gem of its own!"

  • "We ate at what are generally considered the four best restaurants in Maui, located in Kapalua, Lahaina (2) and Paia, and Gerard's tied for the best based on our experience. The food and service both were superb. Our server has worked there for sixteen years and was very knowledgeable about the ingredients and preparation of the dishes. We ate outdoors in a beautiful, garden-like setting. The owners of one of the other top four restaurants in Maui were there celebrating the husband's birthday (which was confirmed by the staff at the other restaurant the next night); which says a lot about the status of Gerard's."

  • "This was our favorite restaurant in Maui! Although it is not a oceanview setting, the setting is charming. The food was amazing. I had the grilled fish special and my husband had the snapper. They were cooked to perfection. The salad was crisp and delicious. My husband had a cold cucumber soup which was delicious. Save room for dessert!!!!"

  • "Well, what can we say about our experience? It exceeded our expectations. We dined on the porch rather than in the dining room It was cozy and reminded us of Charleston. Our waiter was attentive and delightful. I had the foie gras on French toast as my appetizer and am still talking, actually, raving about it. My husband had the head cheese appetizer and loved it! Our fish entrees were fabulous, We loved Girard's and will be back when in Maui again. If you love fine dining, you will love Girard's."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Considering the rave reviews, I thought that Gerard's was supposed to be an amazing restaurant. Wrong! The decor and food was dated, stuff you would expect to see in the 1980s, and bland to boot. The waiter was great, the bartender not so much. He belched so loud that everyone in the restaurant could hear, then replied with a barely audible "sorry." Definitely will not return."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Gerard's was recommended by a friend and we have wanted to try it for awhile. It is so beautiful sitting on the veranda for dinner. It is a lovely place to come and enjoy a meal. I had Opacapaca and blue crab which was delicious and beautifully presented. My husband had the foie gras which he was crazy about, for an appetizer. He had Opacapaca prepared differently with a citrus butter sauce, also delicious. A memorable experience."

  • "We chose Gerard's for a very special birthday dinner-family reunion. All six of us were very happy with our experience. The welcome was warm and friendly, the atmosphere elegant and inviting, and the service attentive. The food was excellent-many local products prepared in an imaginative, creative way. And we enjoyed chatting with the owner and chef Gerard, a most affable host."

  • "We visit Gerard's several times a year, and this past year it has showed a steady decline. The service was extremely poor, and the restaurant was less than half-full! Our busboy kept trying to take our order, our waiter ignored us. We are tired of the tasting menu being featured in the menu, but not available. Take it out of the menu if you are not offering it! The dessert listed "rhubarb pie" when in fact it was a cobbler with puff pastry. The pie came out before the waiter asked anyone else what they would like for dessert. All in all, we will not return; it was not worth the price, as there are many wonderful places to dine in Maui."

  • "After dining here in years past we did not eat here last year. Mainly because the menu, while good, had not changed much. When we took a look at the menu this year we decided to try it again. It was all lovely. It was rainy on the night we were there so every one was seated inside or on the porch. Both nice settings but less private than when people were out in the garden as well. Good food and an enjoyable evening!"

  • "We selected Gerard's for our first dinner on Maui as we have had good experiences in the past. This visit, well, not so much. The bread could not compete with Wonder, the first course was ordinary and the entree was similarly uninspired. The wine was grossly overpriced even by Hawaii standards and the dessert was not fathomable. Worst of all, we were amongst several diners on the patio...in howling wind and uncomfortable cold temperature. If we had been told the only table available was outside and considering the weather, we would have gone elsewhere. As would the other groups, I suppose. Finally, the waiter describe the dishes well or tend the wine. We've moved o"
