Diner Reviews
  • "We went there twice, once for dinner on Saturday night, and once for dinner, drinks, and dancing on Sunday. The first Sunday of the month is Motown night with a live band. Both nights the food was fantastic, the service was quick and friendly, and the view from the patio seating was incredible! The Motown band was good, if not great and the atmosphere was laid back and fun. The prices are cheap for happy hour and reasonable for dinner. I highly recommend the Braised Short Rib and the Atlantic Salmon but both are very rich, perfect for splitting. It is definitely a new favorite for me!"

  • "I can't really recommend this place. We are not from Maui and we read some decent reviews, unfortunately they didn't live up to it."

  • "Food was good - AHI was super yummy and dessert was great. Disappointed they were out of the wine we ordered. They overbooked and didn't have our table but came thru and set one up for us which was super nice. Bad part was there was an EXTREMELY loud band playing. Love the idea but wish I would have known because I was looking for a quiet dinner. I will go back though to enjoy wine and pupus on Sunday night and to hear good music - really it was just an expectation issue. But, overall, they were awesome and came thru!! Well done!"

  • "Food service was exceptionally slow. Salad came out quickly, but had to wait 20 minutes for the sushi (69 Roll). The entree took another 20 minutes to arrive. Food was tasty, but nothing fantastic. Sold out on their prime rib special by 7:00 pm. Music was nice and a couple was dancing to the music. Nice view but could hear the cars on the highway."

  • "We loved everything about it. The experience was great because it was adult friendly. The food and bar beverages are fresh and delicious. Our Server was very helpful and had suggestions to our questions. We are bringing the whole group next time. My guests were very pleased and so was I. Many thanks for a delightful lunch. "

  • "It was loud because of the band (on the deck) but those dancing seemed to love it...we sat just inside and the music level was OK. Food was good, not as expensive as many Wailea & Kihei hot spots."

  • "Besides the good food and very pleasant wait staff, and besides a beautiful view of the 18th fairway and green, also included was a fabulous view of the sunset over the ocean. Well done!"

  • "really friendly servers, GREAT food, very nice scenery with live music...the only negatives i have about the experience was that there were a few flies that were a little distracting and obnoxious and they forgot i was trying to celebrate a friends birthday so i had to remind them in front of my friend...thus ruining the surprise "

  • "The food was okay, nothing special. We thought a one crab cake appetizer, no salad greens, for $18 was overpriced. Not the setting for a romantic evening, more of a bar atmosphere. We will not be returning to this establishment. I would think a great place for a lunch after a game of golf but not for an evening out."

  • "Very expensive for the quality of food. Would not return. Drinks were not even good."

  • "Half of outdoor patio dark with no lights. We had to move tables to even see the menu. We were not offered bread as were neighboring tables. Food arrived cold after at least a 45 minute wait. Service inconsistent at best. We were constantly being told the food would be right out. The manager offered to comp us the meal but we refused knowing that we would not be returning."

  • "My husband and I did a "Nine and Dine" here last year and enjoyed everything - the spectacular view, golf was good, and the food was very good. My fish was excellent, the salads were great, but my husband's steak was just OK. This year we came with 3 other couples who had never been to Kono's. My husband, not a fish eater, had a steak which he reported as very thin and smothered with gravy. The rest of us had fish and were very happy. We had the ono special which was in a curry sauce, another had the ahi, and one had the prawns. Several of us split the beet salad and we were served very generous portions of very tastg beets and greens. Everyone plans to return - we just need to find something else on the menu for my husband."

  • "The restaurant manager called the night before to advise of a pre-fixe menu for Valentine's Day which we appreciated. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the hostess and seated immediately without waiting. Our server and the staff were very professional and catered to our every need due to the fact that we had our 19 month old daughter with us. We were also really amazed by the food! Usually when partaking in a pre-fixe menu, it's not the best meal, but this, by far was very tasty from the start to the end. The live music was also really nice to enjoy and everyone in the restaurant seemed to be having a great evening."

  • "Ordered steak medium came well but tasted good. Presentation excellent - waitress had good memory but did not service even though restaurant, diners were low & she had the skill."

  • "With the threat of rain and no cover over the outside dining area :( i elected to eat inside. unfortunately a very large (10-12) group came into the lounge, which is all part of one room with the inside dining. Several people in the group were incredibly loud and inconsiderate: certainly not Kono's fault. Without being very busy, it took an incredibly long time to get wine, and the entree was very delayed. In fact, i was first brought a lamp chop instead of the duck breast...i LOOKED at it.....thought hmmmm. Stirred some things around on the plate, and then the kitchen person that had served me ( not my waitress) came backa nd said oops that is a lamb chop! I got MY dinner right away but wondered what they did with my stirred around plate."

  • "Wonderful food, great ocean view, good wine, friendly staff and reasonable prices! Definitely will return on our next trip to Maui."

  • "We were not disappointed by Kono on our second trip. I had a tremendous appetizer of smoked salmon while my wife had a salad. And the dinners were excellent as well (steak and scallops). The server was very attentive but not intrusive, so it was a great experience and we will go back."

  • "Had a reservation. Walked in, slight wait for hostess. She informed us that she did not have any menus right now. We asked about going to the bar, but found all chairs taken. We were told that we should use a seathing arrangement near the bar. Table did not have silverware. We ordered and when food arrived had to request silverware. Seems more of a local place. Food was good. View of the ocean was limited. We will not go back."

  • "Stunning view of golf course and sunset. Food was very good, priced reasonably for maui. Service was a little slow. This was a result of the restaurant not the waitress. Not enough waitresses. Overall, a great experience. Recommended!"
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "When we arrived, although we made a reservation on open table they acted like it didn't matter and put us at a table they had open. We sat for 5-10 minutes without service of any kind and when we finally did it was hit and miss. Once our food was ordered and started to arrive things started looking up. Although the service was pretty poor the staff were friendly and tried to please. The food was outstanding! The live music playing was advertised as jazz, but was more like wedding DJ type. Good food, just left feeling disappointed with atmosphere and service. Not what we expected. Would recommend for the food only."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "Excellent setting and ambiance enhance a well thought out menu, with food prepared and presented with a foodie in mind. Service is attentive, the kitchen flexible, Kono's was, for us, the perfect place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. If you're on Maui and looking for just the right restaurant to enjoy for an evening, this is the place!"

  • "We wanted to have a nice dinner to celebrate our honeymoon and decided on Konos because of the excellent reviews we've seen. Sadly it wasn't as great as we hoped. My husband commented that the butchering of the lamb was not done correctly and completely under seasoned. The quality of the meat was fantastic but lacking salt! My scallops were beautifully cooked and flavors were ok but it definitely lacked the wow factor. When dessert came it looked wonderful but the mousse was completely grainy and the creme brulee didn't even seem to have been made with real vanilla bean. Over all the food was mediocre. The quality was great but lacked in flavor. The best part of the dessert was the whipped cream and puff pastry on the side. Sad."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed a nice sunset dinner last week at Kono's. We sat outside to watch the sun going down over the West Maui Mts. Tommy are waiter was delightful and was attentive to all our dining needs. The food was good. We will return to Kono's again when we visit Maui in Feb 2014."

  • "This is a golf course restaurant. The deck overlooks a highway, then the ocean. The food was very well prepared and presented, the wait staff were good, but not great(lacked knowledge of the desert menu). This is not a great chef in a golf course restaurant that does happy hour. Go for the food, it was awesome. Very casual dress"

  • "We sat outside, right before sunset and had a wonderful view of the sunset and the first Hole of Elleair Golf Course. Both were breath taking. The fish of the day was Machong Caught that morning, with curry flavored risotto, baby asparagus and Bok Choy. It was All amazing. Finished with Rosalina ice cream. Great night, with impeccable service and food!!!"

  • "Elleair Maui clubhouse dining. Bread was awesome! Mushroom ravioli was good. Spinach Salad was terrific! The rack of lamb is an item that I'd go back to eat any day!. The NY cheesecake was dense but not very flavorful. Great views, but bright glare at sunset. Need some shades. Seems like the bar and lounge area took up half the space. The bar seems a main focus for this dining establishment."
    Dined on 7/20/2013
  • "The food at Konos is excellent but the ambiance for a fine dining restaurant is fair at best. There are too many things going on in a relatively small space. One part is filled with golfers who have just finished their round of golf and are drinking and snacking. There is a bar, another lounge area and the restaurant. It's probably great for lunch but for the fine dining prices at dinner the ambiance needs to change. Too bad because the food and service were great!"
    Dined on 7/13/2013
  • "I hosted a dinner for my employees and everyone had the most delectable and enjoyable evening. And it didn't break the bank. Fine dining at the right price is so difficult to find on Maui but Kono has it down. Gabby was a wonderful server and so attentive. It's why we return time and time again."

  • "1. The surroundings are inviting without the pomp of silver service - allowing the majority to be eased into a relaxed setting. 2. Staff table service is outstanding with an indepth knowledge of the menu and happy to give advice in terms of trying something new. 3. Food - not to little and not to much - just right for each course, with the same presentation as you would find in top London and Paris restaurants. 4. I noted the menu covers a range of food to suit all pockets, with three distinct chefs cuisines from around the world. Unusual to have three different chefs under one roof with these skill levels, as you would only generally find in some of the very expensive restaurants around the globe. I would recommend this restrurant"

  • "We always have a great experience at Kono's. Friendly service, beautiful atmosphere and great food in generous portions. It's a little off the beaten path, so we sometimes don't think of it as a first choice, but our last meal (delicious rack of lamb) will probably change that! Kudos to Konos!"
