Diner Reviews
  • "Fabulous food and service. Absolute must when in Maui. Fish fresh and well prepared. Service excellent."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Great service and view at this restaurant, a lovely place to watch the sunset. The menu reflects the era in which the restaurant was founded, with lots of cream sauces served over the seafood or meat. Nice wines on the menu, but would not recommend to people who expect trendy or modern food choices."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "I've loved this place over the years. I'd eat here at least twice a trip. It's declined. Food was terrible. Waiter tried. Wine served at the wrong temps. Longhi's RIP. Sad"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Yes, you can have great food at a reasonable price with scenic view. Since the restaurant is facing Front St., cars and buses make some noise. However you can still enjoy wonderful view from the table you sit. I prefer visiting this restaurant at evening since sunset view is better."

  • "The hostess Julie was particularly helpful and sweet."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "We had dinner at 7 different restaurants on Front Street. Longhi's by far came into #1 First place. Loved it & will be back."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "All the staff we encountered were wonderful and compensated for the unpleasant experience from the previous night at another restaurant. From the moment we were seated we were attended to expertly. Our waiter, Gennarino, was so personable, we felt like family. He had many helpful suggestions to guide our ordering. The complimentary pizza bread was fantastic. So fresh and flavorful! Salads were fresh and crisp. The Eggplant Parmesan was wonderful though the portion was huge! My husband had a pasta dish with wonderful sauce and very fresh pasta. All in all a keeper. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "After years of listening to my parents rave about this place (and having the cookbook), I finally got to enjoy Longhi's for myself and it was probably my favorite restaurant we went to on Maui. Everything from start to finish was absolutely superb. We were seated at a table near the window and had a beautiful view of the ocean. Artichokes were to die for, as was the sashimi tuna bruschetta and the kula greens salad. As for entrees, I don't think you could go wrong, but we all loved the ahi tuna, prawns amaretto, opakapaka with grapes and the veal saltimbocca. We also devoured a macadamia nut pie to wrap it up. Longhi's is a can't miss!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Pancakes & waffles, pineapples were all yummy. Eggs Benedict was drenched in way too much hollandaise sauce and ingredients below average. I'd go back for those basic choices which were real good while avoiding some other ones. "
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "We had not been to Longhis for quite a few years and decided to try it for dinner one night. Had a great table with a few of the sunset and our server (Cayenne) was great. The light jazz was also good. Salads were very good and fresh. My wife and I had the Clam Linguinis which were ok but not great (too much lemon). Macadamian nut pie was good but not great. This place strikes me as a location that may have some really great dishes, you just have to be lucky enough to pick the right ones."

  • "Great location, food nothing special, wait service ok. Won't go back as there are better restaurants in Lahaina. The restaurant needs an update and cleaning; its old and feels it."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "This is a Maui tradition. The food is consistently good and is served with a great view(Lahaina). While Longhi's is good, the competition is good or better such as Sansei and Cafe Olei in Kihei, Tommy Bahama in Wailea. There are a number of good restaurants in Lahaina and Kaanapali."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "Food overall great to just OK. Lobster Cannelloni was.....just OK. Good salad. Wife's pesto was tremendous [good job on the gluten free pasta - al dente and not mushy!] Great wine list! Waiter was fantastic!!!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Order the cinnamon bun, also their bloody mary's are fresh and great! The food is ridiculous for breakfast. Ridiculously good! They say they do italian food but we only go for brunch and breakfast."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "An extensive menu with a knowledgable staff. They were willing to personalize selections to your preference, both in the way they are coked and the sauces. Great view from the second floor. We dined late in the evening so much of the crowd had cleared out. But if you go earlier the tables are fairly close together so it can get noisy."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "We visited this restaurant twice during our stay once for lunch and once for dinner. At lunch we had a pizza and salad and that just hit the spot. Service was good and server friendly, ambiance was good and the noise level was fine. At dinner we had the crab cakes and a pasta dish both were good without being spectacular. Server was attentive and this time we were seated upstairs where we had a nice view of the ocean. All in all a good restaurant that we are likely to visit again when next in Lahaina. Worth a look."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Beautiful view from top of restaurant over looking the ocean. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We did get the impression that the portions were not that big, they are BIG. I had the lobster cannelloni- yummy! They bring you a plate of bread which is more like a pizza, save room for your meal. They have valet parking since there is no place close to park on the street. Great evening."

  • "We have been coming to Maui for years now and have eaten at Longhi's many times over the years. The restaurant in Wailea is much nicer and has a nice ambience. The original location in Lahaina is old an tired. In my opinion, the whole place needs to be remodeled. For dinner, they close down the downstairs for some reason and sit costumers upstairs in a large room that is a combination banquet hall, dance floor, bar and storage area. There is no atmosphere. This combined with the poor service, average food and noise from Front Street, really does not create a memorable experience."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "This was our third time dining at this spot and it has never let us down. We will be back and we have introduced and recommended it many times."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We were met at the door by smiling hostess who escorted us to our window table and the view overlooking Lahaina and the ocean. The food was delicious both highly recommended by our friendly and knowledgeable server. We will go again."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We've been to Lahaina approx. 50 times over the last 30 years, and surprisingly, never been to Longhi's. I am so glad we finally did! Dined upstairs (opens at 6 upstairs, much earlier downstairs), loved the view of Front Street and the Pacific Ocean (whales jumping in the water!), the bartender (congrats on losing so much weight!), our server who made us feel as if we were his most important table, and the FOOD. Oh my goodness, the Opakapaka was the best I have ever had....anywhere on the island. Longhi's has kept dinner prices a few dollars less per entree (nice relief!) than some other restaurants who are charging upwards of $50 per entree....ala carte. Loved our dinner, the staff, the view. We'll return. Much aloha."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Overall, this is my first choice/recommendation for dining in Maui/Lahaina. Merriman's and Plantation were possibly more spectacular, but really expensive, and I was particularly irked at the outrageous wine markups at Plantation. The open air second floor deck at Longhi just reeks of New Orleans, and while dining outdoors or near to it, is commonplace on the islands, nothing quite matches this one. The fish was great, the wine was at California prices, and the overall experience just great."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Had a great meal and the view was wonderful. Very good service. Have been here before and will return."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Wow, we went here for our Anniversary celebration and were seated on the first floor, open window to Front street, with a perfect view of MALA Bay. Incredible view. The dinner was excellent, had to ask them to slow it down a little, which the did immediately. The wine list was very good and overall we enjoyed our evening a great deal! You shouldn't miss this restaurant. :-)"
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "After Friends had given us good reports, we did not have a good experience. The wait person was very pleasant and gave us very good service, but the food had mixed reviews. My wife's dinner was very good, but I should have sent mine back. For such an established restaurant that disappointing."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "We were very pleased to enjoy another wonderful sunset dinner at Longhis this week. We've been visiting Maui for over 30 years and during our first 15 years or so, Longhis was a favorite dining spot. Then it seems the quality if the food declined and we stopped adding Longhis to our dining list. We decided to dine again last September to give an old favorite another try. The dinner was better than we anticipated. So, on this visit, we went to Longhis again and we were not disappointed. We will be back and glad that Longhis has risen once again to the top of the dining list."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "My family and I have eaten at the Longhi's in Wailea and thought the location in Lahaina would be similar. I am not even sure these restaurants are related after the meal we had while vacationing. While we knew that we were not eating at Mama's Fish House (which is the best restaurant on Maui), we expected a decent meal out in Lahaina, especially considering the location and price (moderately high). We had to wait 15 minutes to be seated even though we had reservations at 7:00 and the restaurant was operating at 20% capacity (should have known better at that point). The waiter (Steve with the handle-bar mustache) was excellent and should be working at a better restaurant in the area. If your expectations are low, this is the spot for you."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "The pancakes were huge and topped with macadamia nuts and coconut syrup. The eggs were cooked just right. Not cheap, but worth it. Yummy fresh baked cinnamon rolls hot out of the oven. Fresh squeezed OJ."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "An established, moderately proved Italian and seafood second floor restaurant on Front Street, Lahaina, Maui. Friendly and efficient service with delicious though pricey appetizers and good selection of pasta, steak, and seafood. We enjoyed the scallop and shrimp Longhi legacy meal with a lemon butter sauce that was simple and flavorful. Sat adjacent to outdoor view open window with view of Lanai across the channel and Bubba Gump shrimp house across the street. Server was very attentive and friendly, and food had very good flavor. I would return again in the future."

  • "Longhi's is one of my wife and my favorite restaurants on maui. Always great food, service and view."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Good restaurant for special occassions... A little pricey as all menu items (sides included), are ala carte n charged ala carte... Good wine list but also on the pricey side... I definitely recommend Longhi's for a special night out with your honey..."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Had a wonderful dinner at Longhi's in the upstairs dining room. Bobby was our server and was very helpful with the menu and gave us great service throughout the evening. The fresh catch was outstanding with 2 large portions cooked to perfection with a macadamia nut crust and a light sauce. My wife had the veal piccata with very tender veal and a great wine sauce. We split a chocolate mousse raspberry cake. It was light and delicious. Will definitely go back again when we visit Maui."

  • "Went for lunch. Food was good, great selection of fish preparations"
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "Went here because choices are slim for Christmas on Maui. After waiting 30 minutes past our reservation time they didn't even check us into open table. Food is not great, service did it's best but was overtaxed by the volume of people. Really no resin to go here if you have other options."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Had the endive salad. The endive didn't seem that fresh. Crab cakes were a good size with a pile of fried onions on top that took away somewhat from the crab cake. Had pasta for our mains. View from upstairs seating a area was very nice."
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "Great fish/home style pasta/unremarkable vegetable sides & fun upstairs w great views/downstairs w exhaust belching city busses right next to your table. Combo of Italian pasta dishes & fresh fish made ordering a challenge. Waiter didn't assist w pairing pasta w fresh fish selection & we picked wrong (overly spicy red sauce with a great snapper prepared longhi style - highly recommended). Go for excellent fresh fish, get a neutral pasta side, sit upstairs for sure."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "We heard the food was great here but it was mixed for us. The appetizers were good but the Longhi's style shrimp/scallops dish (their signature item), was soaking in butter. I must have eaten 2 sticks of butter during this meal. I wouldn't order anything there that states "butter" in the description and you will probably be fine. My kids had pasta with parm cheese for $20! Ridiculous for kids meals even by Maui standards."

  • "Having dined many times at Longhi's in Wailea and loved it (great service, food and ambiance), we thought we would give it's sister restaurant in Lahaina a try. Despite making a reservation months ahead of time, we arrived to find we had to wait for our table which was in the furthest, darkest corner of the restaurant. No ocean/front street view as promised. Table and chairs were old and looked liked they should have been replaced 5 years ago. Ordered chicken marsala for $26.00 US and got only a chicken breast with sauce. Was told that a starch (potatoes/pasta) needed to ordered as extra, as well veggies were also extra. When I order this exact dish at Wailea, for the same price it comes with mashed potatoes and veggies. ?? Rip off"

  • "Your hostess is rude and incompetent! We assume she is family. Nobody else would put up with her! We have eaten there twice within one week. Food is excellent. Kevin the waiter is wonderful. Had him two years ago. He is so professional!"
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "We have eaten at longhi's many times. We love the food, service and atmosphere. However, the hostess is the rudest and most incompetent hostess we have ever come across. We go to longhi's DESPITE her. We tell all friends what to expect. We speculate that she is only there because she is family. No other owner would put up with her. She is always rude. Be prepared!"
