    Very nice atmosphere and service, in a good location. The menu is very interesting and similar to what you would expect to find at any of the top bistros or contemporary American restaurants in a major US city. The execution could have been slightly better on some dishes, e.g. short ribs that had a sightly tough and stringy texture, bit otherwise I have no complaints.

    We celebrated our honeymoon and my sister and brother in laws anniversary here, by recommendation of a friend. We were sort of taken aback by the pricing, but that was to be expected in Hawaii. The only issue we had was that I was tired of fish, and the other three are non fish eaters so there were minimal options to choose from. We had spring rolls as an appetizer which I really wasn't a fan of. My husband had the chicken which he enjoyed and I had the shrimp which was just ok. I would check the menu before making reservations.

    Had a dinner at the Lahaina Grill on one of our last nights in Maui. We ordered a lamb entree and a special, the "OMG lobster" dish. The lamb was a little dry/less flavorful than we would have liked, but the lobster special was amazing with juicy large pieces of lobster and a generous portion of foie gras as well. For the drinks, one of the drinks was not to our liking and the server quickly switched it out for another that was excellent. All in all an excellent dining experience and fantastic service!

    We were celebrating our 21st anniversary. Having multiple food allergies can really put a kink in going out. I made sure to make them aware when I made the res. We were greeted with smiles & kindness from every member of the staff we came in contact with. You would love to say this kind of attitude is the norm when dining out but it sadly isn't always the case, but at Lahaina it is. Our waiters Sergio & Ivan went above & beyond to make sure everything was just right. A gal came to take our pic (I expected the ploy "if you want it you have to pay for it"), but no it was yet another courtesy they offer their guests along with a sweet anniversary card from the entire staff. One of the best meals we ever enjoyed, my hubby was elated. Mahalo!

    This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend, and I'm so glad we made a reservation while visiting Maui for our honeymoon. The wagyu beef ravioli appetizer was completely amazing, their version of the caprese salad was the best I've ever had! The mozzarella was the softest I've had. The scallops were huge and wonderful. The best of the night had to be the seared ahi with sesame seeds that my husband got. It melted in your mouth, and had the most perfect flavor you could ask for! On top of that, our server was great! It was based mostly on his recommendation what we ended up ordering. You don't want to miss this place!

    My Wife and I spend 10 day on Maui. We ate at Lahaina Grill on a Friday night. It was outstanding. By far the best restaurant in Lahaina. We both had the fish special and it was a ten out of ten. The service was friendly and very good. We had a table by the window over looking Front Street and what a great street. We ate at several other places in Lahaina and this place was our #1 place.

  • Bring your own wine NOT allowed

    Dined on 9/25/2014
    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!

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!

    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!
