OMG, the ahi with Foie grasOMG, the ahi with Foie gras is to die for as for the dessert sampler plate. This is a must place for dinner.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMtop notch foodBest food you can find...anywhere. Service was exceptional. A little noisy, but bearable. Expensive, but special enough to be worth it.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM20th anniversary dinnerHIGHLY recommended the locals, we enjoyed
every minute of our dinner. The only thing we messed up on
as "rookies" was we didn't order dessert, which we were told
is scratch made & even if your stuffed....YOU BETTER ORDER IT!!!
Every detail is attended to and the place is truly a culinary experience!
Thanks for making #20 memorable!!!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was amazing! Fish wasDinner was amazing! Fish was fresh and asparagus risotto was the best I have ever had. Service was great! It was our best meal in Maui.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, best restaurantExcellent, best restaurant on the island. The veal chop was as good as as I've ever had.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food in the heart of LahainaIt will be hard to leave this restaurant disappointed. From starters to desert, LG offers quality food that is delicious.
Also, I would like to add that the service was outstanding. While on the expensive side, this restaurant offers food and service that is comparable to Spago, Mama's and Merriman's6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly criticism was that theOnly criticism was that the tables are too close together. Food and service was superb!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecialWe hold our trips to the Grill for special times. It is that good and a bit pricey. Best restaurant on the island.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in Maui!Unbelievable food and great service right in downtown Lahaina!
The pancetta wrapped chicken was off the hook, as was the sea bass!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden gemQuaint little restaurant with a varied and interesting menu. A thorough wine list. I enjoyed. Heir recommended selection: a New Zealand wine I'd never have considered. Our waitress was knowledgeable and made us feel that we couldn't make a bad choice on th be menu.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLove This Restaurant!Lahaina Grill is a favorite of ours and every visit to Maui includes at least one dinner there. This is the kind of restaurant that for days afterward, you reminisce - in detail - about each item you enjoyed. Lahaina Grill is a must!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFancyI gave this restaurant 4 stars only because it was a bit pricey. Ten dollars for sparkling water is a bit ridiculous! Also, the tables are jammed packed in the small space so a dinner for 2 really seems like a dinner for 4, or 6, depending on where your table is located. The food was yummy though!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulSuch great food and service. We go here at least once every trip to Maui They also share their receipes6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner!Had a 8 o'clock reservation, and they took us early at 7:30, Restaurant seemed to get busier as the night went on (Saturday night). The wait staff was excellent, down to earth, friendly, and the food was excellent from the start (onion soup) to finish (dessert sampler). I highly recommend.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visited Lahaina Grill forWe visited Lahaina Grill for our first time on the strength of many excellent reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. This restaurant is a little pricey but the food and service were both excellent - I highly recommend the Seared Ahi. For dessert, I am generally not a pie lover but their berry pie was absolutely outstanding. Mary, our server provided excellent service. Lahaina Grill earns our recommendation.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMB'day at Lahina GrillExcellent food at quite high prices (even for Maui) -- but try the ravioli appetizer! Tables are quite tightly spaced, which makes it difficult to carry on a very private conversation.
It was my wife's b'day and although this was noted on the open table reservation the restaurant never did ackowledge this fact.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food, fit for our honeymoonOur concierge recommended Lahaina Grill - and it was worth the splurge. Food was amazing, service was amazing. Doesn't have an ocean view if you're looking for one; but, honestly, didn't matter because the food was so delicious.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently greatWe are regulars because the food and service is always outstanding. The fish is wonderful, but I had the special rib eye steak, which I rarely do, and it was perfect. The local greens and vegetables are tasty.
Worth every penny for the special dinner.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfully Surprised!I have severe allergies and the staff and chef made me feel completely safe and comfortable. Ioved everything about this restaurant. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. We were never made to feel rushed. If I lived on Maui this restaurant would definately be a favorite and one I would come bak to as often as I could.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to Lahaina Grill forWent to Lahaina Grill for 32 wedding anniversay. Without question this was the greatest dining experience of our life. The restaurant also presented us with an anniversay card signed by the staff. Very classic touch. Food was exciting, well presented and a culinary masterpiece.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPrepared to be pamperedThe service here is wonderful. It's one of the few places that mastered the art of making their diners feel like a million bucks, without being intrusive or over-explaining everything. The ambience is good, romantic and cozy, though it lacks the spectacular sunset views some other high end Maui restaurants.
The food ranges from very good to exceptional (their Wagyu beef ravioli is spectacular) and the portions are relatively large, which makes their very high menu prices a bit easier to swallow.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfection in ParadiseConsistent and superb food and service. Attentive staff and exceptional food. The veal chop can't be beat and the fish specials are exquisite.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, No View, Too ExpensiveThis restaurant is on a side street 1/2 block off front. Low ceilings, tight tables and no view. We have come back every year, but the prices seemed to have gotten crazy over the last two years. We can find better ambiance, similar food quality, and better prices elsewhere in Maui.
Excellent high end service.
Food was pretty good
Easy to get to in Lahaina
Too expensive. We spent $100 per person with NO ALCOHOL.
No view...Yes, I am a tourist. Spoiled by Mama's fish house, Hula Grill, but hey...
Overall, the look of the place is just cramped and pretentious.
The tables were right up against each other and the You could not have a private conversation and heard too much of the PRIVATE conversations from neighboring tables.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive, even for a nice placeLahaina Grill: nice service, beautifully finished restaurant (art, white ceilings, wood floor- all nice), and good food. However, it is very expensive: $27 for one stuffed chili relleno; dinner salads $16-18, entrees mostly $40 to $55. Cocktails, $13 and wine priced 2.5 to 3.0 times retail (Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc...$14.84 at Costco, $55.00 at Lahaina Grill. Desserts $13. For two of us, with tip: $267+, and we shared an appetizer and a dessert; no coffee.
So, a nice place, we have gone there now, but do not plan to return for a long time.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was absolutely amazing.It was absolutely amazing. The staff was exceptionally friendly and the food was excellent.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy in Lahaina, HawaiiCould not be better. Food, service, atmosphere all excellent.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and serviceFood was great, timing was fine and Alex the busboy was very kind . I would recommend this as a must visit5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is excellentThis was our 2nd time dining here. The food was one of the best in Hawaii both times. However service 2 years ago on my honeymoon was perfect and this time not so much. We had like 3 servers taking care of us but none of them asked to take our entree order. We got drinks and an appetizer with menus still on our table until I finally said something. Someone came around to take our picture & emailed it to us & gave us a card signed by all the staff for our anniversary which was cool. I would go back for the food.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLahaina grill reviewMy arugula salad and my wife's beet salad were very good and attractively presented. I had the sea bass special, sautéed and served on artichoke heart risotto, and it was delicious. She had Mahi mahi sautéed and served on spinach and bellwether farms blue cheese, topped with Gorgonzola. The fish was good but the spinach potato base was way too salty. The Kula lime tart and pineapple upside down cake with rum sauce were excellent. The staff were helpful and friendly, exceptional servicel5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous evening! AwesomeFabulous evening! Awesome food and service . Dale is the best!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best in HawaiiOne of the best I have been to here on Maui- in my top 5. The desserts are awesome (so leave room) and mains were very good.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLahaina Grill is our favoriteLahaina Grill is our favorite restaurant in Maui. Everything we ordered was done perfectly. The tomato mozzarella salad is amazing with the aged balsamic vinegar. The last time we were there, the Tuna wowed us...I thought that's what I'd order this time. Instead I tried the fish special which was a sea bass. I loved it! My daughter ordered the braised short ribs and my husband ordered our favorite Tuna. Everything had its own distinct flavor and was delicious. We're also not hug desert eaters....but we love the berry pie.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat endingWe came here as a last meal before leaving the island. Fantastic experience with great service and great drinks! Everything was cooked beautifully.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious little spot w/nice touch!Service and food were both excellent. Visited with my husband for honeymoon, we got the scallops and filet dishes with the chocolate torte for dessert. Each was amazing and good portions! Since we were visited on our honeymoon the restaurant staff gave us a card and tool our photo. They emailed us the photo as a great souvenir!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional ServiceWe enjoyed the Lahina Grill 2 years ago when we were in Maui, so we naturally wanted to return. Unfortunately, when making the reservations via Open Table, I asked for a table on the wrong week (I guess my vacation mindset caused me to forget what day it was). Nevertheless, when we showed up, the hostess went out of her way to find our reservation (made for the following week!) and then found a way to get us a table that evening. The waiter Dale was knowledgeable and did an exceptional job of pacing the meal so we were relaxed and could enjoy some conversation between courses. He also asked if he could take our picture...a nice touch. The food was great as always.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food!We wanted one special night during our stay on Maui and this fit the bill! The food was out of this world: delicious, beautiful presentation, great combinations and flavors. I ordered the special: red snapper encrusted with panko and asiago. The fish was fresh and perfectly cooked. It rested on a bed of roasted corn risotto which was very tasty. My husband had the mahi mahi that's a regular menu item. We argued over whose food was better. The service was attentive without being hovering. A large group at the next table was very noisy. They were enjoying themselves though.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in MauiOur #1 place to go. Always dependable service, food and atmosphere. Can't wait to return in October!!!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved this restaurant. TheLoved this restaurant. 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 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 AM
