    My first time dining at The Lahaina Grill and it's now my favorite restaurant on Maui. The food is outstanding, the ambiance romantic and fun, and the service beyond compare. While it's pricey, the entire experience is worth the cost. If you get a chance to go to Maui, don't miss out going to this spectacular restaurant.

  • Bring your own wine NOT allowed

    Lahaina Grill has great food. In its category it's the best on Lahaina Town, without question. However we have one gripe, and it's a big one. Recently Maui passed a law that allows diners to bring their own bottle of wine to a restaurant, pay a corkage fee and enjoy a wine that they bring in to the restaurant themselves. Lahaina Grill still refuses to allow you to bring your own wine. We understand why one shouldn't be able to bring a bottle that's on Lahaina Grill's wine list, but we are irritated that they refuse to allow diners to bring their own unique bottle. I hope management and the owner will review their policy and rethink their decision.

    We were on our honeymoon from Philadelphia and staying just north of Lahaina. Service and food were out of this world. They volunteered to take a honeymoon picture and email it to us. My wife's ahi tuna melted in your mouth. Portions were large. No ocean views, but everything else was top notch! I'd tell anyone staying on this side of island it is a must eat! Thanks lahaina grill for making Maui even more memorable than it already was

    The Beef Carpaccio was a bit over the top with way too much lemon zest flavor over powered the dish. The fried capers were bland. Bone in Rib was underdone & the bufala tomato salad was a hit . Staff was A +

    Was expecting a good meal when reserving a table. What we got was a fantastic dining experience. Wait staff was prompt, attentive and knowledgeable. The two fish dishes we got were some of the best we got in our week-long stay at Maui. In short -- this was our best overall dinner on the island, and would be the first place we reserve if we go back.

    We had been in Maui for three days and we wanted to find a nice relaxing restaurant with great food and service. We saw the restaurant while walking through Lahaina and it looked like the place we had in mind. I made reservations that night and went the next evening for dinner. What great service, the staff was very hospitable and informative about the menu. The food was outstanding, from beginning to end. Overall, a great dining experience, I can see why they received so many high ratings.

    Everything about our dining experience at Lahaina grill was Excellent! We were welcomed with charm by the hostess and wait staff. We were celebrating my completion of Maui's Half Marathon and this restaurant was highly recommended by couple of my friends. Our waitress (Lisa McGhee) was full of energy, very friendly, very knowledgeable, and tended to our every need. She's a perfect model for all waiters and waitresses out there! The food was excellent! I had the special of the night, Panko crusted Opakapaka over Risotto and my boyfriend had braised short ribs... We both enjoyed our meals!!! The environment was comfortable, not too hoity toity. A perfect way to end our evening in Lahaina! Thank you for a wonderful time!

    We have been to the Lahaina Grill several times over the years. The thing I'm most impressed by is how consistent the level of service is each time we go. The food wash high quality like always. It is a little expensive to some, but you get what you pay for. We will definitely be back.

    This place is for special occasions. The food is excellent but comes at a price. Portions are actually quite nice, I had the pork loin (actually got two,) and the wife had the Opaka special. She loved it. Really thought the wine list was very extensive but again, $$$$. Service is quite enjoyable with conversations abounding from the entire staff. Since we go to Maui every other year, I look forward to going back in 2016.

    We have been to Maui numerous times and somehow had missed dining at Lahaina Grill. This experience did not disappoint! Our server was very polished and helpful - not pushy. The Maui onion and sesame seed crusted seared ahi was the best I have ever eaten - it melted in my mouth. My husband had their opakapaka with a champagne ginger sauce as a daily special and loved it! The menu is excellent - although pricy. We will absolutely be back - it is better than Mama's Fish House!

    Really overrated for the price. Salmon was average, minestrone soup was mushy not clean and vibrant. Caesar salad was pretty typical, lamb chops sauce was good and the lamb ok though. Bit underdone. Not worth $48. Based on the yelp reviews and ads we thought this was going to be the best in Lahaina. Good reputation not fulfilled in this case. If you are going to pay $200 you expect better.

    We went to Lahina Grill to celebrate an anniversary and it was fantastic. Noah was our waiter and he helped us make the best choices for our dinners. Everyone enjoyed their dinner and we were given such good attention - neither rushed nor waiting for help. We loved the Toy Box salad and the spinach salad sand the fish specials were fantastic. Do not miss the key lime tart. Will we go back? In a minute!

    Took my husband to Lahania Grill, our favorite Lahaina restaurant for his birthday dinner. We split the buffalo tomato salad which was delicious, the tomatoes were perfect with a little Maui onion and great aged balsalmic vinegar. We splurged and each had the lobster, it was a lot of food but we managed to eat it all! The lobster was perfectly cooked and topped with foie gras - the entire meal was outstanding! We didn't order dessert, but out came the berry pie with a candle.... and we managed to eat it all. The service is always top notch at Lahainia Grill, attentive but not overly so, comparable to any five star dining experience. We'll definitely return to this wonderful restaurant, it is a gem.

    Lahaina Grill is the best restaurant I've been to ever. Everything from the service to the food was top notch. In Maui I found that most restaurants tend to have the same items. Not Lahaina Grill. Their menu is unlike any other menu in Maui. When I go to Maui again I will most likely eat there multiple times as I know I will not be disappointed.

    Second visit to this great restaurant. Service is top notch and food is outstanding - and beautifully presented. Appreciated server and kitchen's willingness to create a vegetarian option that was not on the menu. While not on the waterfront, the tasteful and bright decor gives this location it's upscale, modern feel. Runs to the expensive end (even for Maui), but worth it for a special night or celebration.

    We had a fantastic dinner at the Lahaina Grill. Our server was very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable about the wine list. Our daughter requires gluten free child and I am dairy/egg free. Our server spoke with the chef and dishes were modified accordingly. Our meals were absolutely delicious. Our two girls accompanied us (they have good restaurant behavior). The server was attentive to them and the kids meals were also delicious.

    I've had this reservation for months yet we got to sit in fron of the very noisy waiters' station. Other tables were open. I know many people Gave the service high ratings but I found it patronizing (waiter) and annoying (each couple sips of water brought back the attendant to refill our glasses and interrupting conversation continuously. Many would welcome this service but it's not the kind that impresses me. Most importantly, the fish whose name I cannot remember but which was promised as flakie than Mahi Mahi ( which I thought about ordering) was over cooked and dry. Apologies to those who think its spectacular here but my order alone cost $70 and would not have been worth even $35.
