Diner Reviews
  • "I ate at Kauai Grill with my sister and brother-in-law for her birthday. While the good was very good, we were all very disappointed the our waiter. He was aloof, did not make eye contact with us for the majority of the meal, and did not check on us much at all. I expect more for a restaurant located inside a St. Regis hotel."

  • "Our waiter was very good and I so appreciates the vegetarian menu but only the window tables have a view and the prices are outrageous--not worth the excessive prices ($26 for tofu) and not all that special"

  • "We celebrated our 25th Anniversary at the Kauai Grill. We had a beautiful sunset view table! The food was all delicious and our server knowledgable about the menu. We both enjoyed fish dishes that were wonderfully prepared. The cheese fritter side was delicious! It was a wonderful place to celebrate our special day."

  • "We went there not our trip in Kauai -the best meal I've had!!! Pricey, but worth it! High-class, the best cuisine, elegance!"

  • "The menu and taste of the food was absolutely superb. However, the general ambiance such as view (from where we were seated), lighting (florescent), and service were similar to average restaurant dining."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed this restaurant! The ambiance was very nice and romantic. For starters, I ordered the baby romaine salad, which wasn't anything special. My husband had the hamachi sushi, which he claimed was outstanding! For entrees, I had the filet mignon, which is what I normally order, but what made it different here was that they brought four different sauces for the filet. Bernaise is my usual favorite, but the soy-miso mustard wasn't bad either. My husband had the grilled lamb chops, which he totally devoured; unfortunately, the portions were (expectedly) small. For dessert, we shared the warm chocolate cake. Delicious."

  • "Don't mind paying high prices for great food. Kauai Grill has fallen very short for a high priced restaurant. All items are very expensive & ala carte, I don't have to mention the wines. The portions were very small (add a few more dollars to fill up the plate w/ vegetables). The plates were small (in size also), bowls were small (in size) - general feeling is that you are being ripped off for the scenery & name. This restaurant is not close to Josselin's on the island, nor the level of most Napa/Sonoma name restaurants (price/taste wise). Go there for a drink or get appetizers & soak up the absolute gorgeous views!!!"

  • "Food was excellent. Ambiance was poor - paper placemeats, excessively loud, bright flourescent lights! Service was poor as well for the price. Very inattentive (waited about 20 minutes once we had the menus before anyone came by, had to ask for bread)."

  • "This Jean-George restaurants is a true gem on the Garden Island. Set in the beautiful St. Regis resort, just the walk to the restaurant sets the tone for your whole dining experience. The hearts of Palm salad was perfectly presented and expertly seasoned. The pepper encrusted ahi blew my mind--most, firm and perfectly spicy. Dessert is creative and deliciously unusual. The salted caramel sundae included popcorn which seemed wrong but was completely right. Save your pennies and go there to make your vacation memorable!"

  • "The food was so amazing. We had an app and it was so amazing. Everything about Kuaui Grill is amazing. My wife and I went there one night on our honeymoon and enjoyed every minute of it."

  • "The restaurant was beautiful and the food great. We had to leave right after dinner because there was a large group seated next to us and the noise level was just horrible."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "The grill is exceptionally swanky! Amazing decor and food. The staff were all super friendly and helpful. You can come in in nice casual attire or as formal as you like and you will feel welcome. Not many 4-5 star places can make that happen, but the Kauai grill pulls it off in spectacular style!"
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "the view is amazing if you can afford it. the food was amazing too but you can go to other restaurants that have just as good, or better food for a little less. you are paying for the view for sure."

  • "My husband's meal was much better than mine. I ordered the Salmon on the grill and it seemed well-done and a bit dry in places. My husband had the Mero and it was tasty, my side dish of the Comte Cheese Fritters were very good."

  • "Beautiful view, good service, average food, overpriced."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The view is amazing but your going to pay for it. I come from NYC and know what it feels like to pay top dollar for a great meal, this however was not that. I started with the rice cracker crusted Ahi tuna which was a good not great. ($22) For my entree I splurged and went with the Wagu peppercorn NY Strip, it was above average for sure but not in my top 10 maybe top 20 and for $72 it should be in my top ten. My wife got the Mahi Mahi which was really good and I wish I went with that at $42. Wine was good but again $20 a glass for the wine I got was not worth it. You will have a good meal here and like I said the amniance was great but there area y other places I would go on the island and get a better meal for less (like the Beach House)."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food and atmosphere was excellent. The wait staff however was less than acceptable. After turning away the wine/list and alcoholic drinks, the waiter sent over a different waiter to take our order. The original waiter appeared to be annoyed that we were not drinking. We had to ask for bread and butter after seeing every other table with it. It is offensive to be discriminated against for not drinking when we tip over and above 20% for excellent service and our meal was over $300 for 4 without alcohol."

  • "We ate at the Kauai Grill on the last night of our Kauai vacation. The food is superb and the service beyond compare. I mentioned to our server Chris that I was cold ( AC cold ). Minutes later he came back and offered me a shawl to keep warm. I was so surprised, never had service like that before !!!! Chris described the menu options in detail and was very informative about wine pairings. The food was amazing especially the pavlova for desert. So many flavours together all of which were subtle and fused together on one plate. To die for !!!!! If you are in the area do not miss eating at this restaurant. I recommend the parsnip soup, prime rib tenderloin and of course the pavlova."

  • "The maitre'd was aware of our Anniversary and provided first class service! Great View until sundown, about 6:30. Wonderful food. The Pepper grilled Tuna was superb/the short ribs to die for! The mashed potatoes are for people who desire the best and most highly buttered! Overall a wonderful experience. We will return again!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "Pepper Grilled Tuna Entree perfectly seared! A foodie's eatery! View across the bay GREAT, but darkness sets in at 6:30! Service timely and committed to the cause!"

  • "The Octopus Salad was one of the best dishes that I have ever eaten - anywhere. I wish I could have the recipe and try to recreate those incredible spices and flavors and tenderness which is unusual for octopus.The Sea Bass (Mero) that was cooked perfectly with a crispy outside on an incredible flavor explosion of black bean puree with a myriad of spices and flavors. Phenomenal food, presentation, textures and tastes defines the Chef's talents as one of the best we have experienced anywhere in the world. And to find this in Kauai was unexpected but we were betting on the St. Regis. I strongly recommend folks to try this very special restaurant in a very special setting for a dining experience you will never forget."

  • "What a send off. My wife and I went to the Kuauai Grill on the last night of our stay on Kuauai. The view, the ambiance, the food, the service..... all were outstanding. I could not have asked for a better evening. My compliments to the chefs and to Antonio for making this a very special night."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Kauai Grill is a real treat. The food is amazing---I'm not sure I've had a dining experience in which the restaurant managed to bring so many flavors to life. Regardless of the selection, the flavor was incredible. Keep in mind---this restaurant is located within the St. Regis Princeville, so it's not cheap. But, in my opinion, the price is worth it when the meal is so wonderful. Wine list is robust, but very high-priced. It's tough to find a decent bottle for under $75 here. Service was solid, but nothing too special."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The view from the Kauai Grill is second to none. Fortunately the food and service matched our surroundings . I had the Omaha at the suggestion of our waiter. It was perfect as were the steak fries, cheese fritters, and asparagus . My husband had the mahi mahi and loved it. All in all a memorable evening."

  • "We enjoyed splurging for our 40th anniversary celebration. We were wamly greeted and given a lovely table with view. Sevice was considerate andwell-paced. The tasting menu with wine pairings was well-considered, all courses were tasty, and a couple of the pairings were outstanding. But nothing really popped. And at this price point I expect at least one or two "Wows" in order to give an oustanding rating."
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "We were disappointed in the overall experience. It was our 10th Anniversary Dinner and it was disappointing. The short ribs looked like brownies out of dish. The presentation of the menu was not special as other restaurants do. The lamb chops was good. The staff just did not seem seasoned enough for such a high priced restaurant. We were not offered anything free in celebration of our anniversary, as is the case with other restaurants. This was the worst of the occasion, a simple glass of wine or cupcake with candle and coffee is simple and something to provide to special occasion clients. Anyway since I am limited in text suffice to say this is my worst Open Table restaurant experience."

  • "Pulpo in pepper jelly appetizer sounded promising, but the jelly overpowered the toughy & chewy tentacles. Crabcake appetizer was mushy, no points there. Two steak entrees were lovely though overpriced; as were the a la carte mushrooms and mashed potatoes. A very nice homemade-ice cream sundae followed. Service was adequate. Overall: overpriced for the deliverables; though the Jean-Georges name was visible, the brand was not well-represented (I'm using the NY location to compare this restaurant with). We brought our own wine so I can't comment on the wine list. Perhaps the meal was overpriced because of the St. Regis location."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "We were really looking forward to this meal. Entrees between 25.00-nearly 60.00, attractive room and very attractive wait-staff, but the food was only OK. I've eaten at other Jean-Georges Vongerichten reataurants and this does not measure up. I realize it is located on an island in the middle of the Pacific, but still expected more. We started with the Hamachi appetizer which was fresh and well-balanced. The Waygu beef entree was not especially tender or well-seasoned and at 58.00 not worth it. The fish was alright, though also a bit overcooked. All of the wait people were very professional and well-versed on the menu. 300.00 for two people, with a single bottle of wine. Try Tidepools at the Grand Hyatt if you desire island ambiance."

  • "This is a truly outstanding restaurant in the St. Regis Hotel Princeville. Our dinner ranks in our top 10 meals ever – and we’ve dined in some pretty good restaurants all over the world. The service was impeccable and it was obvious the food came from a truly talented and inspired chef. If you travel to Kauai, you owe it to yourself to splurge and dine at the Kauai Grill."

  • "Exquisite view of Bali Hai makes this a wonderful experience. But prices are quite high and the server we had was underwhelming at best. Food was delicious. We brought our own fine champagne and paid a $35 corkage."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "Had the tasting menu with wine pairings. It was expensive but worth a special occasion. The highlight was definitely the dessert course which was a salted caramel ice cream sunday with brittle and popcorn. The other courses offered a good variety of the menu and the wine pairings were well thought out."

  • "Over looks the bay, luxurious interior, great wait staff but missed the top mark . This could be a perfect spot except for the noise. They need to work on dampening the over all noise. Very loud for high priced dining. Fouled the romantic dinner for our 48th anniversary."

  • "We always come to dinner here when we are in Kauai as a special treat. The service is excellent (one waiter noticed that my chair was a little far from the table and brought me a pillow for my back)! The food was light and very good - pricey, but worth it for a special occasion."
