The service was excellent and the food delicious. My husband had the filet and I had the salmon. Both meals were wonderful. The staff was great - it was our anniversary so they took a photo and emailed to us the next day. I would definitely recommend and go back!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways AmazingWe have been coming back here for almost 8 years now and honestly we have never had a bad meal. We love to sit at the bar so we get a good feel for things. Mary is amazing. Fun and lots of info about the island. She even gave my wife some real estate advice too! Cannot wait to come back yet again. Oh yeah, the food is 5 star as well. Bert salad and Maui Onion Soup to start , fresh Hawaiian Bass in the middle, and cheese cake to finish off the night.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful BirthdayThe wait staff was great at picking a wine for our dinner. The food was wonderful and the presentation was beautiful. We will go back again.
MJW5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place but food only okMaybe it was just an off night but the food was only okay. My steak was over cooked and my wife told me the fish was very bland and over salted. However, the service and place are outstanding....We will try again for sure.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMmemorable dinner in Lahaina!Lahaina Grill made our anniversary dinner a perfect evening with outstanding cuisine, great wine list and very nice touch of a complimentary picture that they emailed to us and a sweet card with employees signatures - great customer service! And don't skip dessert!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIcing on the CakeThis year's visit to the Lahaina Grill was very special as it combined getting to spend time with our nine month old grandson while also celebrating my wife's birthday and Mother's Day. The last evening of our Maui family vacation is always at the Lahaina Grill. It is a beautiful setting with lovely, original artwork; the best food on the island; and our server, Richard, was the best we have ever had. Get this - they placed a 3'x3' piece of craft paper under the high chair so if the baby dropped anything it never touched the floor. And!! Each of the ladies hung their handbags from purse hangers so they did not touch the floor either. And the food was to die for! All in all it was the best experience of our 10-dayHawaiian family vacation.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh MarksImpeccable food , display of same and ,service.Try the ice cream add on as it comes in a spun sugar basket !!!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFish heaven!Fabulous dinner on 5/7/13. Had special hawaiian seabass expertly prepared. highly recommend cake walk to start. marvelous experience.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAn oasis in the desertIn the arid place for good food that is Maui this restaurant is an exception. Although overpriced like every other here, at least it is giving you something for the money. The food is really good and the service is excellent.
It is a pity that it is indoor in a place like Maui where you can be outside almost around the clock and year,
Perhaps they could/ improve in the only deffect I could see. Everybody is running all the ime which creates a kind of nervous atmosphere. I believe slowing done will add to the comfortable ambience this place has.
A nice gesture was that the next day after our dinner we got a thank you mail by the owner for eating there.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA Perfect Place, A Perfect EveningWe went to celebrate our Anniversary and everything was perfect. The hostess found us the best table for us and sat us with a server who was knowledgeable and passionate. The server was a professional and knew exactly when to talk and when to leave us alone, he definitely knew when to serve. My girlfriend had the wagyu beef ravioli with a mushroom sauce that went well with EVERYTHING and i had the 'cake walk' appetizer for our first course which was an eruption of flavor (especially loved the chili accents). I had the Ribeye Special modified with the server's recommended sauce change, which was AMAAAZING! Our final course was the famous "Road To Hana," definitely a chocolate lover's paradise - or as it is known.. "heaven on earth."5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in Maui.Had a great meal here three years ago, and another one Sunday. It's not Maui great, it's great5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodies!This place is seriously the best food on the island. I got the veal osso bucco with a lobster tail on the side. The Osso Bucco was loved by all at the table. No real words to describe it, you just gotta go!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey but worth it.Probably the best food on Maui. A great place for a special occasion, such as an anniversary.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent MealWe reall enjoyed our meal at Lahaina Grill. We had two of the specials and they were perfect. It was a bit loud and crowded, but still great.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLahaina Grill is always wonerfulMy youngest daughter got married in Maui (we have been coming here of years). The only place she wanted to have dinner post-wedding was the Lahaina Grill. The food was perfectly prepared, innovative, fresh. Service is just right level. Atmosphere is frienly and casual. Food is expensive, but certainly worth it for the occasional treat. We have probably eaten at the restaurant at least 15 times over a dozen of so visits to Maui and gone through a couple of changes of management. Food has never varied in quality. Service has never slipped. It's our favorite treat in Maui.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLahaina Grill was the perfectLahaina Grill was the perfect venue for our intimate birthday celebration.
The dining pace was leisurely, and the service friendly yet professional.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a superb dinner hereWe had a superb dinner here for a special family celebration. Service was top notch and food delicious.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMust Go at Least OnceThe only reason why I didn't give ambiance a five star is because we sat at a table with a direct view of the kitchen door which was open the entire time and near the front door.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMJust a little offWe love this restaurant and eat here about every 4 weeks or so. Unfortunately this time wasn't one if our best experiences. The wait staff was great as always however I think the kitchen was struggling. Food took a long time to come out. We were there over an hour before our food came out. They were so backed that when we left we saw a very long line of customers with reservations still waiting to get in. While the food wasn't bad (we've never had bad food here) it was a little overlooked. Shrimp was rubbery, the fish just a little overdone, and even the triple berry pie had been cooked too long. Nobody can be in top of their game all the time and tonight they were just a little off theirs. Still one of the best restaurants on Maui4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I had a wonderfulMy husband and I had a wonderful dinner at Lahaina Grill.
Everything was cooked just perfectly and there is nothing I could have asked for more.
At least it was far the best food I had in Maul.Great serving staff too!
Strongly recommend this place if you like to eat something really good!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and great service,Excellent food and great service, but quite pricey.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMStill my favorite on the island.Still my favorite on the island. Veal chop was a tad too fatty but dish overall was outstanding. Great service as always. be back again soon. And will also continue to keep Lahaina Grill as my top suggesttion to all who ask..4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLahina Grill is av,ust visitLahina Grill is av,ust visit for anyone visiting Maui. Food outstanding , friendly efficient service and a casual environment.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice, but pricey.The appetizers were the favorite part of our meal. As a suggestion, order three apps and share an entree, which is big enough on it's own. I was dumb and let the waiter talk me into a steak since we got a nice bottle of Nebbiolo. But if you're in Hawaii, get the fish. Nice restaurant, definitely pricey, the two of us spent about $350, wine was $130, but if you're looking for a nice restaurant in Maui especially in Lahaina and you don't mind spending some money it's worth a visit.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly service and great foodWe've dining at the Lahaina Grill for 15 years (previously it was called David Paul's Lahaina Grill). In all the times we've eaten at this restaurant they seem to get better and better. Everyone from front of house, bar, waiter and water person was a delight. We arrived earlier than our reservation but this was no problem as the front of house lady arranged for two open seats at the bar for us to check the wine list and order a nice bottle of Turley Zinfandel, that wasnt actually on the wine list but the bar lady found it on her cellar inventory computer for us. The waiter, Eustacio?, was very helpful and friendly and kept checking in on our progress. Overall a great place to dine and at the top of our list of places to eat in Lahaina.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe last of 10 dinner experiencesThe last of 10 dinner experiences on both the big island and Maui. What a great decision, as this was the best dining experience that we had on our vacation. The service was first class. The wine list was great, and made it difficult to choose. We started with the spring rolls and the Maui onion soup. Go with the soup. We got the short ribs and the Hawaiian sea bass special. Our forks kept reaching across to the others plate as both were exceptional. And then there was dessert...glorious dome of mousse. Our next trip to Maui will not happen without a reservation to Lahaina Grill.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMPlace was very nice and asPlace was very nice and as advertised the food was fantastic. Service was good but waiter didn't care for my wife not ordering Entre and we chose a lower priced bottle of wine from a taste test he gave us. Best chicken dish I've had in a very long time though. Pretty Pricey so we were a little surprised by that but overall great experience.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable & MagnificentI ate at the Lahaina grill on my wedding night. We were sit in a quiet corner where I probally had on of the most memorable meal of my life. Richard was our server and was impressive, and the food was even better. Well worth it food anyone who loves perfect, flawless, execution.
Thank you!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was beyond terrific.The food was beyond terrific. We celebrated a 30th anniversary and this is one place that really knows how to prepare fish. Honestly, the only problem for what is a very fine restaurant is that it is in Lahaina.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding ! By far theOutstanding ! By far the best restaurant on Maui ! The staff is great from start to finish. The wine list is solid. And the food - wow! The Ahi was amazing. We normally skip desserts, but treat yourself here.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGray food.... Always eatGray food.... Always eat here at least once when we are on the island..4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding, OutstandingWe make the trek to Maui every Spring for 2 weeks. One night is reserved for pre-anniversary celebration at the Lahaina Grill. Outstanding food and we always ask for Richard who is the best server we've ever had. See you next year! R. Grant - New Mexico4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLahaina Grill satisfies thoroughlyThe Lahaina Grill shines like a flawless precious gem. The restaurant achieved a sophistication not widely found on Maui, by us thus far at least. Tasteful, colorful art work and table presentation. Each of the staff heartily welcoming upon arrival and throughout the meal.
The food was highly satisfying, with surprisingly ample portions for a high-caliber place. The pork shank with mashed potatoes had the comfort of home but executed carefully and more deliciously. The poke was good but forgettable, but the risotto underneath was creamy, salty, and wonderful. The golden and red beet salad was a fine accompaniment, especially paired with a pinot noir recommended by Justin. Lastly, the free bread given out was a real joy.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMIf Not Best, Its UP ThreThis was our third year to visit this restaurant and our the third time not disappointed. First off, a reservation is a must, if eating around7PM. We have always had the Ahi and Foie Gras appetizer, but we added the Ahi Poke this time. It quickly became our now best starter at the grill. We split a beet salads that was just enough for two. The hot buns and herbed butter was a nice accompaniment. We both opted for seafood. My wife selected the fish of the day. The fish which I tasted (I wish I could spell it) was moist, mild and of good texture served ion s bed of garlic mash potatoes and spinach and accompanied with a tomato reduction. I opted for the shrimp with firecracker shrimp. The waiter warned me that the dish was spicy. I like spicy4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMVoted best restaurant in MauiVoted best restaurant in Maui for 20 consecutive years.

Great recommendations, great staff, very attentive!! It's a little pricey, but hey, you're in Maui, get over it!!! We would go back without even thinking about it!!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat in every way!It was an awesome experience for my wife's birthday. It was the last place in Maui that we ate after being there for 9 nights and it was definitely the BEST!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMToo bad we had to shout.We come here every time we visit Maui for their incredible food and service. That being said, we will probably choose another option in the future due to the noise level. It has always been a challenge at this restaurant, and we knew that when making the reservations. We are at the stage in life when a peaceful, non-shouting dinner conversation is a priority.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely fantastic! EverytimeAbsolutely fantastic! Everytime we go there, we are amazed how great everything is, from the food to the service.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful restaurant, excellentBeautiful restaurant, excellent staff, and fabulous food. One of the best, if not the best, restaurant on the island.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTasteful Elegance Just Off Front StWe made reservations here on the advice of a friend (and regular visitor to Maui), and we were completely surprised by the elegant surroundings when we entered the front door. Tasteful decor, soft background music, in all great ambience! The menu was large and diverse, and all four of our ishes (veal, salmon, filet and meatballs) were seasoned and cooked perfectly. A very large wine list is available; bar seemed a bit limited compared to others, but we didn't come for the bar anyway. Highest marks for the chef!!!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our third time toThis was our third time to eat at The Lahaina Grill. The food was excellent--almost beyond compare!! The service was impeccable! It's a great experience to dine there!!!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAt 90 dB, there's no pointAt 90 dB, there's no point coming with expectation of carrying on a conversation during dinner. You have to choose between shouting and eating. And with the food this good, eating wins out.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLike many, I read the reviewsLike many, I read the reviews prior to going. I have been before but not for over 10 years. We were not disappointed one bit. Is it pricey? Sure, but the menu is online so no surprises. The food was excellent, not to repeat but parts of the meal were among the best I have ever had and I am a little bit of a gourmet. In particular the appetizers are amazing. The main courses are good as well, and actually rather large portions. Next time I think my wife and I will get appetizers but share an entree. The service was also very good. Another member in our group had a few odd requests and the server was more than accommodating. The only negative was they were out of the bottle of wine I ordered, not a big deal, whatever.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service, wonderfulGreat food and service, wonderful fresh fish of the day selection and Osso Bucco (well-prepared and tender Osso Bucco is hard to find!). Outstanding chocolate dessert (we passed on the chocolate creme brulee but will have it next time). We were in a small dining room separate from the main dining room which has the bar, so it was a bit quieter than the main dining room, the main dining room noise was energetic. There is no view, Lahaina Grill is all about the food and service, and it is expensive but not that much more than other good restaurants on Maui.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you want to experienceIf you want to experience a true dining delight, you must eat at Lahaina Grill. We would not make a trip to Maui that we did not arrange a dinner extravaganza with them. This is a "must do" for our family.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great restaurantThis is a great restaurant that never dissapoints. The food is spectacular and the staff is knowledgeable, friendly and always helpful. The manager Deb is wonderful, friendly and a great asset! This is our favprite place on island and we come there all the time.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
