Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Gerard's gives an excellent dining experience in an old Lahaina Plantation Inn property on a quiet side street with inside and outside dining. The cuisine is European with local specialities. The service and quality is excellent. Reservations are recommended as seating is limited. Excellent for quiet relaxed dining."

  • "We had wanted to try Gerard's for some time and decided to celebrate my husband's birthday dinner there. The food was excellent. We sat on the front porch and the entire restaurant was very quaint. Our server was very attentive and knowledge about the menu. It was delightful and I would highly recommend Gerard's!"

  • "We had dinner here on Wed night to celebrate our anniversary. Its a perfect place for a romantic evening since its located in a lovely plantation house with a front porch where we dined. The server we had was top notch even running out to meet my husband parking the car to give him a parking pass so he wouldn't be charged. He was so attentive and recommended some great dishes. We started with a salad we shared then I had the snapper entree, their signature dish for years, which was sooooo good and my husband had lamb chops which were prepared in a way he had never had before which he loved. The crusty warm bread was to die for and we took home a choc cake which was so yummy. The perfect place to dine for a romantic evening."

  • "Gerard's is always a treat. It's not snapper season, so the "snapper" was papio, beautifully prepared with the subtle ginger-orange sauce complementing but never overwhelming. I was dining alone, so I had a chance to try the headcheese (dining companions recoil at the mere idea) which was a little crunchy for my taste (carrots) but a rare treat. The main problem with dinner at Gerard's is choosing which course(s) to skip. Appetizer, charcuterie, entree was enough so I had to skip salad, soup, and dessert. Next time."

  • "Fixed price dinner impressive- 8 courses with wine pairing optional. Chilled cucumber soup very flavorful; pan seared scallop done just right-tender; lamb, medium rare; save room for the profiteroles with chocolate sauce. Reserve a table on the outside colonial style porch."

  • "Gerard's offers a magical, romantic dining experience that is perfect for couples. The plantation house provides a beautiful ambiance. We ate on the veranda and adored it. We had the seafood tasting menu with wine-pairing, which could not be beat. My favorite course was the sorbet topped with champagne! Truly a memorable and romantic dining experience."

  • "Fantastic restaurant. Certainly on par with first class French restaurants in San Francisco (Cafe Jacqueline), Houston (Chez Nous) and New York (Daniel). Ambiance was great. Very much enjoyed dining out on the quaint, colonial style veranda. Service was competent, knowledgeable and attentive. Wine list was extensive. Rave reviews for appetizers..... Hamakua in Puff Pastry & Fresh snapper dumplings in sorrel sauce. Preparation of honey glazed pork tenderloin, rack of Lamb and Hawaiin filet of beef....superb! Plate presentation excellent. Sides are not to be ignored... sweet potato cake with apple and banana, rhubarb compote, Potato au gratin, mushroom timbale were all fantastic."

  • "Haven't tried new restaurant at Ritz. Banyan Tree used to be excellent. Point being that there are not that many restaurants that offer what Gerards has. Perhaps a bit more complex in overall food prep. Maui has several great places if you're looking for fish or lobster and a view. But if you want a tasting menu with good wine pairings, try Gerards. Not saying that local resources are not well utilized. The fresh fish with the citrus fennel sauce is excellent. Wait staff are well trained. Special food and place for a special night."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "A special restaurant for a special occasion. Food is outstanding and ambience can't be beat. Pricey for sure, but well worth the experience. You should sit on the lanai or in the garden and not inside for the full effect."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Plan for your dinner time to last two hours or longer. Due to chef/owner Gerard hailing from France the menu has a French flair but with recognizable American names plus a couple of French specialties. The wine list is extensive (its own book numbering several pages). I had the pork tenderloin which was very tender and delicious."

  • "One will not have a better dining experience on Maui. The menu presents excellent choices for food and wine. We have been going here once a year for 20 years while on the island. Never have we been disappointed in the food or the service. The quaint plantation house in the city makes for a special dining experience. "

  • "Food and ambience were great. Jim Bowie was personable and offered excellent service; however, one of the staff member, I think he was the bar tender was very condescending or aloof to us. My husband would have cancelled but he did not because he knew I wanted to try Gerard's appetizers. The appetizers were great, presentation and taste. Gerard need to improve on their set menu. 8 course dinner for seniors is too much. It would be nice to have a 4 course dinner like Alan Wong's in Honolulu"

  • "My boyfriend and I had another excellent dinner at Gerard's Restaurant on Sunday. Our table was ready for us when we arrived at our 8pm reservation. Amazingly, the waiter had even remembered me from our prior visit about 8 months ago! We were welcomed with a delicious amuse bouche. We had the tuna tartar appetizer, which was split for us in the kitchen and was very flavorful. We shared the Gerard's salad (also split in the kitchen). I had the fish of the day, and although the fish portion was small, it was truly delicious. My boyfriend opted for the Hawaiian filet mignon with mustard sauce, and it was perfectly prepared. We finished with the pineapple tart. The server was perfect in attentiveness. A wonderful end to our Maui stay."

  • "Gerard's is a wonderful restaurant. The food is always great and the presentation is beautiful. The wait staff is attentive, knowledgable and very welcoming. Every time I dine at Gerard's, I am reminded why I always come back and treasure this place. The fish is fresh and often times, Chef has a great presentation of desserts with fruit from his own trees. A delight that should not be missed when visiting Lahaina."

  • "Our waiter Patrick was excellent and recommended an delicious wine for us to enjoy. The tuna tartare, veal chop and duck confit are not to be missed. The setting is lovely, close to Front Street but away from the throngs of people."

  • "Outstanding service, excellent food, and a wonderful quite "special place." One of my new favorite places - now a much visit for each Maui trip. "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Have seen it passing by but never ventured in until now. We sat on the porch. Quite delightful and a bit romantic. Patrick our waiter was charming and efficient. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals but truthfully, I was so excited about the Rhubarb pie for dessert that I don't remember what else I had! The pie was fantastic with flaky crust, lots of wonderfully tart rhubarb and if I could have I would have had a second!!! We will definitely stop here on our next trip!"

  • "Daily fish special - ono was great. However, pork stew was over cooked an the meat was tough. Not a very good meal. We will not go back"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Gerard's is the best food on Maui. The snapper is out of this world. We loved the French preparations on many of the dishes. Great wine list as well. We sat out on the porch both times...lovely!"

  • "The food and service by Eric and David was outstanding. The food better than incredible. It was a perfect find for our last night in Maui. The waiter from another restaurant said that should not miss dinner at Gerard's. The best rack of lamb we have ever eaten and the snapper was outrageous. I only wish that Gerard's were located in the city of Chicago, which is where we reside."

  • "My wife and I dined at Gerard's last Friday. Our last night in Maui, celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. We couldn't have picked a better spot. The food was delicious. We did the seafood tasting menu with the wine pairing--everything was outstanding. Well worth the price. The service was top notch as well (thanks Dave!). Take a table outside, the setting was relaxed and set a nice, romantic mood. Best dinner we had on the island. If we make it back to Maui, Gerard's will be at the top of our list. Thanks for a memorable evening."

  • "Lovely plantation style atmosphere with inviting veranda. Food options very French such as pates, duck confit etc. but there are other options available that we're prepared beautifully with a light but exceptionally flavorful finish. Service was non intrusive while being comfortably attentive. "

  • "This was a wonderful find for us. We are here more, so we are venturing out to dine out other than just for good seafood and Maui favs. We saw all the great reviews for Gerard's and checked out the menu and decided to try it. It turned out better than even we expected. It was an entirely lovely dinner, from wine to excellent food. The service is flawless yet not hovering. We enjoyed it so much we will return again for certain."

  • "A warm and inviting welcome to Gerard's was followed by our server Patrick being respectful and mindful of the pace at which we wanted to be served.He was excellent! The food and presentation were outstanding and reflective of the price paid for this quality.Highly recommended for those who enjoy and appreciate fine French cuisine.We will be back!"

  • "We have been to Maui several times and wanted to try Gerrards. We were fortunate enough to sit on the deck or lanai and it was a typical beautiful evening on Maui. Our waiter and service were excellent and the menu lived up to it's reputation. Unfortunately - either they were shortstaffed this evening or the kitchen was slow as it took almost 40 minutes before we got a drink. The wine was not chilled (white wine) and we didn't get our main entre for almost an hour after this. By the time our entre arrived there were more waiters and things were improving however my wife and I had the beef which was fine except for augratin potatoes which clearly had been microwaved to the point that we had to let them cool for 15 mins!

  • "The fish was excellent and well prepared. Nice selection and perhaps one of the best fish presentations on West Maui. For desert, we had the 3-icecream concoction. This was very bad. The ice-cream was full of crystals and the salted carmel topping was inedible for my taste. Being an ice-cream aficionado, I'd recommend saving your money and getting a cone or dish of ice cream for half the price at a place that service Roselani's ice-cream. It is made on the island and one of the best that I have had. "

  • "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!"

  • "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."
