Leilani's on the Beach - Kaanapali
goodfoodHad a great dinner there was 6 of us and the food was fantastic. Also save room for the Mud pie we had to order 2 because it was sooooo good. Enjoy.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at whaler villageFood was great and our waitress was the best we have had in 8 days.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLeilani's is a bit priceyLeilani's is a bit pricey but consistent with the restaurants in the area...It is a small price to pay for great food and great views of the sunset off West Maui. I have been to Leilani's for a large party of 10 with kids and also for an intimate dinner for 2 and Leilani's is great for both!!! The location in Whaler's Village is ideal with free validated parking for 3 hours. The service is also excellent and the menu is just right for everyone!!! I highly recommend Leilani's On the Beach!!!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service was fantastic.Food and service was fantastic. Even got to see a nice sunset. Our waitress was from Argentina and very attentive and knowledgeable about the food and the preparation.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had dinner in your upstairsWe had dinner in your upstairs dinning room on Saturday June 1, 2013. It was wonderful. The food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. We will be back.
Mahalo;6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA good "go-to" restaurantWe've been here many times - while in Maui this is a good restaurant to fill out your stay. Nothing special, but it is nice5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOur last night on MauiAfter our week long stay on Maui, we went to Leilani's on the Beach - Kaanapali for our final dinner on Maui. We arrived at 6:20 for our 6:30 reservation and was seated immediately. We had requested upstairs on the rail to view the sunset, and that is what we got. We ordered to teriyaki steak and coconut prones, both came quickly and were perfectly prepared. Our tea and water glasses never got empty (a pet peeve of ours) even without asking our waiter to keep them full. The sunset was shared with the biggest piece of Hula pie we have ever seen at a restaurant. Never felt like they were in a hurry to get us out even through they were busy that night.
Excellent food. Excellent location. Excellent service. We couldn't ask for more.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding eveningAfter a bad dinner at the Hula Grill the night before we hoped that Leilani's would be better. This was so great that we are going bact tonight. The waiter was so nice to us and the food was great. The view from the dinning room and the sunset was over the top. We loved the whole experiance. Hats off to the team at Leilani's.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and viewWe had the special, which was pork shank with grilled bruessel spouts and gnocchi. It was amazing. We had a great seat outside next to the beach walk at sunset as well so the atmosphere was great. A little tightly packed on the deck but that's ok.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMMuch like Kimo's in LahainaLeilani's on the Beach - Kaanapali is a J.S. family of restaurants, which apparently means it's very similar (part of J.S. family) as the Kimo's in Lahaina. The menu and decor are almost identical, and the scenic view of the Maui ocean sunsets are likewise very similar. The location of Leilani's is upscale compared to Kimo's (in Lahaina), being located beach-side of Whaler's villiage in the midst of high end shops and resorts of Ka'anapali, Maui. We enjoyed the food and sunset. I called them after making the opentable reservation just to be sure we could change if we needed or wanted to dine downstairs. The 2nd floor has a better view of the ocean and sunset, being unobstructed from sidewalk passerby's and hedge & no change was needed.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat family restaurantAhi was excellent as was as other fresh fish. They catered to our two jet lagged grand children, creating a bed for them to sleep on, good all around experience. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, from the hostess to the bus boy.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThis place is firing on all cylinders - check-in staff, servers, food, nice wine list, ambiance, and view. Dined twice over an 8 day trip to Maui and can't wait to come back.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food. Can 't beat thisGood food. Can 't beat this location for sunset/early evening dining. Found at that Open Table books you into the main restaurant...not the outdoor eating area in front of the bar. The do have a small outdoor area there also...actually a little more secluded...we liked it!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDine with a viewSeven of us enjoyed dinner at Leilani's. All of us seemed to enjoy our dinner. It seems that all of us enjoyed our meal, and most of us enjoyed the Hula Pie for dessert. What a great view at sunset too! Good food, good service, good view!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat sunset + Great Food = WIN!The fish was great. Service was attentive but in a casual way, not a stuffy way. And the view of the sunset was perfect from our table. Can't get much better than that!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Food & ServiceMy wife and I enjoyed the great food and super friendly service. Great Hula Pie!!! Food is reasonably priced.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Meal I had this TripI ate at a half dozen fine dining restaurants (including those that were $40 more per person) in both Maui and Kauai, and Leilani's was my favorite meal of the trip. It started with the hostess seating me on time with a table with a spectacular sunset view. My waiter was personable, attentive, and made outstanding recommendations. The Pork Pork Pork appetizer was my favorite appetizer of my entire 2 week vacation, and my fish entree was outstanding.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLeilani'sBeautiful sunset!! Wait staff was very responsive. Very good selection of food - especially seafood.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!Great good! Wonderful service!

Will absolutely come back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOMEThere were 5 of us for dinner...my husband and I and our 3 guests. We all had something different, and everybody loved their selection. They loved it so much, our friends went back 4 days later!! I had the miso glazed prawns (early bird special) and it was delicious. LOved the red sangria too.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!Leilani's is part of the T Group of restaurants (Dukes, Kimo's, Hula Grill) so we knew it had to be good. But this was so much better than good!
My husband had the prime rib (maui beef) that was rare, juicy and nicely seasoned. I had the citrus grilled fish which was swordfish that night. UMMM.
Wonderful food, great service - and HULA PIE! Hula pie is a signature dessert with the T Group, vanilla ice cream with chunks of macadamia nuts, MOUNDED into a chocolate crust, served with hot fudge, chopped macs and whipped cream. Heavenly!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Food, Stunning FoodMy husband and I dined here our last night in Hawaii and had an amazing experience. Our server was very helpful and made a wonderful recommendation for me. I had the most amazing fish ever - monchong in a lemon caper butter sauce. I wish we had gone to Leilani's earlier in our trip. I would have gone there every day! Thank you for a wonderful experience.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!This was our second dinner at Leilani's in four nights.
This time we both ordered prime rib which was still medium-rare despite a late-ish reservations. Perfectly served with smashed potatoes and delicious sauteed vegetables.
We treated ourselves to Hula Pie again. Not to be missed.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGorgeous viewWe only came for drinks, dessert, and the view, but I'm sure a full meal at Leilani's would be amazing. The view is the best part, outdoor dining in Hawaii can't be beat. It's top of our list to come to next time we visit!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and view were fantastic!The food and view were fantastic!

We dined upstairs on the balcony and had a really nice time.Get there for sunset.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeI originally had an issue with our meal but the manager Jason came over even though we didn't ask to see the manager. The manager said that he had taken it off the bill and invited us to come back with a $30 off the next visit. The food was good ...service was excellent and very nice and friendly even though it is in a touristy area they really showed us that they care about having repeat business ... Thanks again to the staff for making dinner enjoyable! See you soon4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful sunset evening dinnerThe food and everything was great. I wish it was a little cheaper.

GO THERE....4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and funWe went to Leilani's twice while on Maui and both times it was very enjoyable. The food is excellent and our servers were personable. Two things I would change - the drinks were a bit weak on alcohol yet very expensive, and to obtain parking validation at Whaler's Village you have to wait for a few minutes after your meal for the manager to show up with a sticker. Not a very good system. But otherwise it was a fantastic meal and an ideal location.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGood selection on the earlyGood selection on the early bird menu at a great price. Too bad they gave our ocean front seats away and had us in the main area.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMLeilani's lives up to its name!!1st time @ Leilani's . Everything was great. Made the reservation on Open Table, we were sat right away & had a great table, there were 3 of us. We each had a different appetizer, each one was as good as the other. Poki, Sashimi & Chowder, all excellent!! For Dinner my Wife and I shared the Mahi & Tiger Shimp , while my Son had a Fliet. All was good there as well, Mahi was excellent, Filet was really good. Portion size was perfect for us, as I said we shared & it was plenty, but we had appetizers. There was enough room for a Apple Crisp Sunday that was perfect. Also if you like Bread, the bread at the beginning is amazing!! Price point is fine, not overly expensive, I mean its Maui & it was fair. Would go back without thinking about it.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOur table was ready on time.Our table was ready on time. The service began when we sat down and didn't stop through our entire meal. We had a large group, but they did a great job. Wonderful selection of "pupu's", and at least my entree was wonderful. Seared Ahi steak done and spiced just right.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, ok foodOverall the food was ok and the drinks watered down. Nothing was bad but nothing was exceptional. The service overall was excellent as they were all extremely attentive and were great at ensuring that we had everything in place for a 2 year old that was within our party.
If you're a foodie, overall you'll be disappointed as the food is just bland.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Special Occasion placeWe have been to this restaurant many times and is my husband's favorite place to eat for his birthday. Food is always good and the service is always excellent. Cannot beat the view...3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favourite spot with theOur favourite spot with the best sunset view.
