    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.

    My family of three were there Lahaina Grill's anniversary special...my wife found it in the local newspaper. They promoted 50% off for kamaaina (residents). It would have been nice if they had practiced the art of full disclosure before taking my reservation. I should have been informed that the discount was only for the entrees and that a computer generated 18% tip would be added to the bill based on the retail value of the entire meal which included appetizers, drinks, salads and deserts. On a night I anticipated spending no more than $190 ended up costing me $248. When I expressed my dismay at the arrogance of giving themselves their own tips the manager showed up and offered to adjust the bill. I just paid the entire amount.

    We have been eating here for years and the food is always outstanding and the opakapaka was this visit as well however it did take a lot longer than normal to be delivered to out table this visit. We also shared a beet salad and a chili relleno which were both really good. We usually have the berry pie for dessert but we were so stuffed this time we decided to pass on dessert. Not sure why it took so long this visit to get our food. Restaurant was busy but it's always busy however the noise level was higher than normal this visit. Restaurant has low ceilings and not much in the way of noise absorbing materials so it can get really noisy.

    Well, it was 6 years before we returned to the Lahaina Grill and quite frankly I shall never return. The food has definitely gone downhill. When the Grill was first David Paul's it was remarkable and even when it became The Lahaina Grill it was so. Can't explain what happened but after ordering the Occo Bucco and my husband the short ribs the meat was full of fat and not moist. Not wanting to make a big deal out of it, we did not say anything - our waitress Lisa was fabulous and made up for the food.

    Lahaina Grill was voted Best in Maui, and we were glad to get in this time around. The food was mostly excellent. The onion soup was well balanced, although it would have been nice if the cheese had been burnt on top. The salad was fresh, and the braised short ribs were tender and flavorful. I did not care for the chile relleno - it didn't have hardly any cheese and the red sauce was overpowering. We would go back.

    My husband and I came here on our last night of our second honeymoon in Maui. The food was absolutely the best meal on Maui! The service was impeccable and the food came out exactly as we requested. Our only concern was the volume in the restaurant. It appeared to be very loud. However, the food was delicious and we seemed to forget about the noise. Additionally, a great surprise was when they took our picture for our celebration and the free dessert that accompanied dinner! We WILL return!

    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!
