Always love to stop at the Kula
Lodge when on Maui."

The view is beautiful, but the
average quality of the overpriced food makes this one restaurant to skip."

Went on a Friday night when there
was live music which was great ambiance. Food was very nice as was the service. View of course is great."

Only fish on the entire island
that I would not recommend. Food trucks serve better ono anyday, especially when it was a 40 dollar plate of what tasted like a dry fish stick. Great sun set though!"

Wow! Such a night, such a find! A
wonderful up-country day was crowned with our dining experience at the Kula Lodge. We kicked back by the very cool fireplace..., we were escorted to our table with no better view anywhere. Our waitress....the the entire wait-staff treated us like family....it was SO MUCH FUN! The cocktails, bountiful wine list.....the food! Our waitress even offered, not just specials of the day, but personal recommendations that greatly exceeded all of our expectations. We fell in love all over again on this trip...and the Kula Lodge was a big part of it! Thank you guys!! We will tell everyone we know and we will return! This may even be.....our only daughter"'s wedding site. "

A perfect end to a perfect day of
touring Maui's agricultural events. Even though it was partly raining, the view was fantastic with ocean views at both the southern and northern ends of Maui. The food was clean and delicious and they know how to make a good cosmopolitan! Service was attentive and the wait staff knowledgeable. If you're doing a day in Up Country, definitely cap it off with a stay at Kula Lodge and Restaurant. "

The view of both harbors and West
Maui Mtns is what makes the restaurant a joy. Food is excellent. Atmosphere is cozy."

It was a great experience and we
have done it several times. Views are awesome "

My wife and I have been going
there for years now. We have gone there for special occasions and for no reason but to go. My son loves to go there for lunch because the pizzas are great. Sometimes the waiters or waitresses are on the slow side because of the high turnovers in that department. My wife and I try to make it there for our anniversary every year. Years ago my wife and I had reservations for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. When we arrived we found the restaurant empty, apparently we were the only dinners that night and they remained open just for us. They could have called us to cancel our reservation but they chose to be classy and remained open just for us; that's just above and beyond what we could have ever expected. "

The price of the food is double
what it should be. Both had steak and mashed potatoes, steak had no taste at all. Makes Applebee's a 5 star resturant. Don't waste your money! "
Dined on 5/7/2014
We celebrated dinner here for our
30th wedding anniversary and then returned the very next day after a morning hike for late lunch. Both times we were delighted to be carefully waited upon by Austin - he in itself was worth the visit. He was an impeccable server with great recommendations - including an amazing expresso on ice cream not even listed on the menu!!! A wonderful memory from a week in Maui."
Dined on 5/1/2014
Food was great and the scenery is
gorgeous. We want there for breakfast and got a table by the window. The 4 of us had just come down from Haleakala for sunrise, so the waiting area was perfect with their nice, warm fireplace."
Dined on 4/27/2014
Nice view, even with clouds!
Service was OK - waitress tried to overcome food issues, but just could not. One of two plates was cold - sent back; replacement was not much better. Perhaps this restaurant will be better whenever they get a real chef.... They made no offer of a comp, dessert, return discount, etc. They are obviously hurting, and continue for the hotel business and the view., which is fab."

I had braised short ribs. They
were dry, and short on the sauce. Could have been served with more vegetables."

A lovely place to enjoy a meal
while in the middle of the island of Maui...where you can see coast to coast!"
Dined on 1/25/2014
On a clear day or evening, the
view is MAGNIFICENT. The kitchen has just reopened and is getting up to par. The food was very good. The soup needs to be hot! The entertainment on the weekends is delightful and low key...a nice bar and/or fire to sit at while having a after dinner drink. A added note: we stayed at Kula Lodge in Cabin 2...rustic yet romantic. What a delightful way to start a stay on Maui. No TV no telephone. They just need to add a small table to the balcony outside."
Dined on 1/17/2014
Our server was sweet and
thoughtful, a bit overtasked with running up & down to the outdoor seating - but dining outside in those cute "huts" and to enjoy the view and the Hawaii breeze was well worth it. It's a wonderful destination for an afternoon drive to see a bit of "upcountry life". The menu was a bit limited the day we were there.... and the "new items" that are on the way sound fabulous. We all 4 enjoyed our food and our time there!"
Dined on 1/12/2014
We didn't get to the restaurant
because they called me to say that they had some sort of kitchen trouble and that they were unable to serve guests. I filled in #1 and #2 from past experience."

My boyfriend and I showed up for
Christmas dinner after making a reservation via open table. We walked in past several disgruntled groups. We were then told by the hostess that it will be at least a 2 hour wait because "guests are lingering". It did not seem like they were trying to sort things out. They could have called us ahead of time...we suggested that they do so for the remaining reservations."
Dined on 12/25/2013
Great fireplace, nice to cuddle on
the couch ,,, view is spectacular"
Dined on 12/19/2013
Outstanding job all things
considered, it's hard when the Chef and one of the other cooks walk out just before service.Food was good but not to prompt or complete."
Dined on 12/25/2013
Our group comes every Xmas, but
this year was poor. Lack of kitchen staff delayed food for an hour- thereby losing some customers. Management needs to get their act together or risk losing further customers... Food tasted ok, though a bit pricey"
Dined on 12/25/2013
We have visited Kula Lodge for
lunch for the past number of years. We have enjoyed it in the past. The food quality has certainly gone down. Something has been changes in the onion soup recipe and it is a let down"
Dined on 12/18/2013
We come to Maui every year and
always make Kula lodge one of our must see places for lunch. My Sister recommended it to me and we have recommended numerous friends ourselves. You must try their Pizza cooked in Their outdoor Pizza ovens, most excellent."
Dined on 12/7/2013
I had a great time the staff was
nice although our waiter felt a bit like a used car sales man and notably wanted us to buy the most expensive items on the list. But you cant beat the ambiance and I had a great time."
Dined on 11/30/2013
The best thing about this
restaurant is through magnificent view and may be worth. The stop in and of itself. The food is ok but not memorable. Thought the days of paying just for a view at restaurants had passed. Would be nice to have the food match it's view."
Dined on 11/26/2013
Kula lodge is nothing more than a
tourist trap (which is true about most of the restaurants in Maui). We happened to see Kula lodge on our drive down from the summit on thanksgiving eve . The hostess did not seat us immediately, since she expected it to be a busy night and wanted to check with her manager if walk-ins are allowed. I immediately made 4::15 reservation on open table as everything was open. We were not seated by the window because it was a last min reservation. Seriously? My husband's onion soup was awful. The pumpkin soup that I ordered had an onion peel in it. The entrees were average and the dessert, a pecan pie was dreadful."

Awesome view to have dinner by!
Love the fireplace setting too where you can sit for a little bit and have a drink in front of the fireplace. Great prices and service was attentive."

My wife and I happened upon the
Lodge Dining. We were very impressed with the service and food. Next time we are on Maui we will certainly dine there again."
Dined on 11/10/2013
We went here a couple days before
on our way back from a drive to Haleakala. We stopped to try it. We loved it so much that we went back on our last day on the island. This time we had breakfast. Our reservation was at 10:30a. The Classic Benedict was delicious!! Everything was wonderful- eggs done to perfection! We got a great table where we could watch the pizzas being put in the outdoor oven (for the lunch crowd). The view was gorgeous- we could sit there all day, if possible and take it in! There's even a fortunate island kitty there that has great accommodations in the outdoor garden! Go! Don't miss out! A must see and eat!"
Dined on 11/8/2013
We had high hopes for Kula Lodge
in spite of other poor reviews I'd read online. Since it was off season, we'd hoped for better, more attentive service, but our server could have cared less whether we were there or not. The food was overpriced and there was nothing special about either dish we ordered. The view was nice for upcountry, but we were disappointed in everything else about the restaurant. We won't be back."
Dined on 10/29/2013
From 3200 feet up the slope of
Haleakala, it's a lot cooler than the beaches--very comfortable. Best views out over the island's saddle from anywhere on the island, from any table in the dining room, or outside if weather permitting. Try the hand-made brick oven pizza. It's great! The Kula Greens salad, made of locally-sourced produce, is wonderful as well. Its composition will change depending on what's available to the restaurant, and it's not small--ideal as an appetizer. For ambience, views, and service, this place has been great every time I've been to Maui since I discovered it about 9 years ago. One of my favorite places, anywhere!"

Always a MUST for visiting
friends! The perfect mix between casual dining and fine dining. No one ever forgets their meal at Kula Lodge:-)"
Dined on 10/21/2013
We dined at this restaurant 11
years ago on our last evening in Maui. At that time we were with friends who were celebrating their 25th anniversary, and one other couple. Found it by chance a day or two before while driving by to another location, and were impressed with the view, so convinced the others to spend our last evening there, and were delighted with the food, the view, and the service, not to mention the grounds which are the equivalent of an arboretum of tropical plants. Now, we are back in Maui for another vacation trip, and decided to try it again, and were just as delighted as the first time. We'll do it again if we return to Maui."

Everything was perfect for my
daughter's wedding dinner - the food and service exceptional - Thank you so much!!!"
Dined on 8/10/2013
We feel the Kula Lodge does
specifically rate highly for the view, grounds and the lodge. The food was disappointing, and overpriced. Wine offerings...ho hum. Our reservation was for 7:30 PM and at 8:30 we wanted to order after dinner drinks with coffee, and were told the bar was closed. One of the other staff members started up the vacuum and went to town right next to our table! The hostess told one of our party members that everyone needed to "finish up" and "our staff needs to clean up and leave." If you're looking for a special meal with excellent team service, this isn't it."
Dined on 8/6/2013
The Kula lodge has one of the most
amazing views I have ever seen. The staff was very friendly and the food was good, but come with money. The prices are on the high side."
Dined on 8/6/2013
My wife and I went up to see the
sunrise very early and on the way back stopped to dine at Kula lodge! Everything about this place was amazing!!! Be sure to stop in their art gallery before you leave as well as take a stroll on their outdoor patio which overlooks the island of Maui. Their gift shop right next door also has great Maui souvenirs."
Dined on 8/4/2013
It was the first time for me and
my fiancé to dine at kula lodge! Embracing the beautiful view and the peacefulness of kula lodge. One of the best relaxation we ever had, which we agreed its a must to come here once a month. The staff is very friendly n uplifting!"
