    Food was fabulous, service spectacular and wine list was nice even if we had to pick a third choice because the first two were unavailable. This is definitely not a quiet romantic place as there were many groups dining, however we had a lovely table for two against a wall that broke much of the noise and allowed us to have our own space. I felt bad for the the parties of two in the middle of the room between larger groups. Noise is only reason we did not give overall rating a five star.

    My husband and I booked a reservation through Open Table for 8:00, but really would have preferred earlier. We were shopping on Lahaina and while walking by just decided to see if we could get in earlier. They were very accommodating and sat us down immediately! The service was excellent, being attentive, but not overly suffocating! Our waiter was amazing, but I can't remember her name to give her credit! She's a veteran there as she worked the place when it had another name! David Paul, Lahaina Grill?? And, the food was amazing!! The special for the evening was the opakapaka fish, which melted in your mouth! The dessert we had was the keylime pie! Best keylime that we've ever had too! We had a noisy group next to us, but they were very friendly and we joined in and joked around with them. Ambience is not a quiet restaurant, as there's bar is right in the middle! Recommend this place for a nice evening out in Maui!

    This restaurant is a must visit while in Maui. Romantic, classy and great ambiance. Perfect for a special occasion, date night out while on the island. Food was delicious and creative. Split an entry so you have room for the clever and tasty appetizers and desserts. Nice wine selection. Not appropriate for young ones. Book a reservation after sunset and enjoy the sunset first before dinner (not much of a fgview for this inside.)

    The food here is simply consistently fantastic. The mahi mahi is unbeatable on the island in my opinion. There are numerous other good dishes here, too. The vibe here can be a little too noisy at times. Reservations are a must. Note that this is not a place to go for scenic views -- only for the amazing food and great, friendly service.

    Lahaina Grill came recommended and lived up to all that was expected. The oyster appetizer was fabulous. The Hawaian snapper dish was a special. It was coated with herbs and macadamia nuts, and was perfectly prepared as was the mahi. The berry pie for dessert was a perfect ending. I would recommend it for a special night. Be sure to bring your wallet.

    One of the best experiences ever and we do a lot of dining out. First, Due to some scheduling changes on our end we arrived too early for our 8:00 pm reservation so we had dinner at the bar rather than wait 45 mins for a table. Great service and great food. Great conversations with others adjoining us at the bar. Make your reservation when on Maui!

    This restaurant is outstanding! We booked based on the reviews and were not disappointed. Our waiter was attentive and helpful in making suggestions from their tantalizing menu. It was hard to choose but we shared the "cake walk" as an appetizer which is three diffent seafood cakes all delicious and distinct. Don't miss this! Then we enjoyed the fish special and the Oslo buck, both were excellent and unique. The restaurant is expensive but we don't mind paying when we get an exceptional meal. Best night out in Maui.

    If they only had a less freezing air-conditioning (but they offer you a chal if you feel cold, as part of their amazing level of attention for their customers), they had a nicer ambience (less bright lights and an interior with a bit less white) and they had less ambient noise, they would be on par with some 1-Michelin Star restaurants we've been. The food is truly outstanding, and the service does their best to make you feel comfortable while being unobtrusive.

    Visited Lahaina Grill on a recent Monday based on a recommendation of a friend and overall were not disappointed. We had the Mahi Mahi special and the boneless short ribs both of which were excellent - the short ribs were probably the best we've ever tried. The wait staff was great - there when we needed them and not when we didn't. Energetic noise level, be prepared to speak with a raised voice. However, would definitely recommend - but bring your wallet - $$$$.

    The Lahaina Grill consistently wins awards as the best on Maui and no wonder! We were seated promptly, the waiter recognized us from a previous visit, the service was excellent, and the food is amazing. It is a pricey menu, but well worth it. I had the veal chop, which may have been the best piece of meat I have ever had, done perfectly as ordered, with truffle risotto. My husband's osso buco was fork-tender. You cannot beat the Toy Box salad (a martini glass of tiny tomatoes in a honey vinaigrette) or the Cake Walk appetizer, three little stacks of rare ahi tuna, rice, shrimp cake, caviar, etc.). This may be the best food we have ever had, anywhere. A bit crowded, loud and energetic, but not to be missed when you visit Maui.
