    We have been coming back to Lahaina Grill year after year. The food is always fabulous, we are never disappointed! It is our favorite place to eat when we visit Maui. The Maui Onion and Sesame crusted Ahi is always amazing. Their fish specials are creative and delicious. My husband loves the filet of beef as well!

    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.

    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.

    This was our 12th trip to Maui and our 12th dinner at Old Lahaina Grill, (even though it hasn't been called that all that time), every time we are there it is the best dinner ever!, One of my favorites and certainly a not to miss place! everything is superb! do not miss it when you go to Maui...we tried a few other places this time new places and they just don't measure up. New restaurants, if you want to find out what the secret is, go to Lahaina Grill and just sit and watch everything take place, its like a well orchestrated play, leaving you wanting for more at the end. When you keave you feel so good, its incredible!

    This was our first (and certainly not last) time eating here. Our friends raved about it but, for whatever reason, we never made it out to Lahaina Grill until tonight. I wish we had gone there sooner! The service was excellent, the ambiance was perfect, it was clean, the food was incredible, and overall it was fantastic! I had the short ribs and my wife had the salmon...both were delicious. The food came quick, our drinks were tended to regularly and the servers were attentive but not overly, in-your-face kind of attentive. We didn't feel rushed either which is nice when you are celebrating a special occasion. It's not cheap but it was certainly worth the price! We will be back!!

    I love the Lahaina Grill. It is top notch across the board. We had Richard as our server, and I also overhead he is the wine expert, or sommelier. I had the catch of the day, which was wonderful, and my wife had the scallops. I loved the foie gras appetizer, and I should for $33. Yikes! Hey, but I am on vacation, and Foie Gras is banned in California. It is expensive, but worth it.

    We had the chef's table which provided us with semi-private dining. Wait staff was very attentive. I had the seafood chile relleno appetizer and the lamp chop entree. Delicious. Others at our table had the spring roll, crab cake, and tomato buffalo salad to start, followed by scallops, mahi-mahi, and vegetarian entree. Everyone just loved it. I enjoy a nice break in between courses and they provided that. Excellent meal. Not inexpensive but worth it.

    The food was outstanding, the service was great, everyone was friendly and the food meet expectations. We noticed the hostess gave a birthday card to a little girl and anniversary card to another couple from the staff. A nice added bonus for those occasions. My wife and I had the salmon and mahi mahi it lived up the expectations!! If there was one complaint it would be that dinner was expensive. It is definitely a place for a special occasion. Highly recommended.

    The easiest way to review our dinner is to say that the Lahaina Grill is as good if not better than Mama's Fish house at half the cost. The Cakewalk appetizer is amazing, almost would have liked to order a dinner plate but knew I had to try something else! We had been to Maui before, but missed this place, they don't have a view of the water, but with service and food this good, it really wasn't missed. Our server was Dale and he was excellent, knew the menu, was always available and made our dinner that much more enjoyable. Next trip in, we'll be back, not sure we can wait another 2 years though!

    I had supper in your restaurant on 31 July with my to daughters. We all agreed afterwards that it was the best meal we had ever had. One of the things that made the evening such a success was the extremely courteous and professional service we received from Mary Crumbacher. She is the best restaurant staff we have ever encountered. Our evening was expensive, but worth every penny. Thank you.

    We had the wagyu beef ravioli and the cake walk for appetizers and both were delicious. We also had the opakapaka fish special and the mahi mahi and both were excellent. The pork chop is double cut and huge. It was properly cooked as well. Order this if you like pork and a big appetite. The meatballs were also very good. Highly recommend this restaurant. The price is a bit on the high side but it's well worth it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 7/27/2014
    We had a nice meal here for our party of eight but probably wouldn't come back. The ahi tuna, both as part of the "cake walk" and as an entree was excellent, but the rest of the fish (both an opakapaka special and the mahimahi) were just OK. Some of the sauces missed the mark and overall there was too much going on for what should have been very fresh subtlety flavored fish, like the apple beurre blanc reduction for the ahi. They should try to simplify things a bit. The dessert sampler was very nice (esp the "road to hana") but even that wasn't awesome. For nearly $500 (with almost no alcohol) it really should have been better. Certainly this is not up to San Francisco standards for the price. Go with Mama's Fish House.

    I finally made it back to Maui after 20 years and knew I had to visit my favorite restaurant on the island again. I was as wonderful as I imagined. Even better, since I got to share it with my husband and children too. The service was exceptional!! The staff couldn't have been friendlier and more accommodating to our 2 children (9 & 10). The food and wine were top notch as well. I hope it won't be another 20 years before I make it back again.
